8 Warning Signs for Silent Domestic Abuse Victims

As much as we would like to ignore it, domestic abuse is a very common problem. Not every woman has the strength to fight against it and confide in someone. As a friend, it is your duty to look out for them. You don’t have to be an expert in psychology to know the warning signs of domestic violence. Here are 8 such warning signs.

  1. She is quiet when he is around: If your friend is normally jovial and suddenly becomes quiet the moment her partner is around, don’t overlook the change. She may be scared of saying something that might upset him and start a fight.
  2. She allows herself to be put down: In almost all cases of domestic violence, the woman is made to feel guilty about everything. This becomes habit and she loses her will to fight back. If you notice you’re friend allowing her partner to walk over her and put her down, she may be facing abuse at home.
  3. She withdraws from friends and family: Social withdrawal is another major sign of domestic violence. There may be a number of reasons for this; he is too possessive of her, she is injured and scared of letting people see her injuries etc.
  4. Unexplained injuries: Making an excuse that walking into a door caused a black eye isn’t only a scene from the movies. If your friend suddenly starts wearing inappropriate clothes such as long sleeved tops in summer, she may be a victim of domestic abuse. Look out for such excuses and injuries.
  5. Plans that are frequently cancelled at the last moment: Victims of domestic abuse often make plans, but never keep them. This could be because their partner does not like them going out without them or because she is injured and doesn’t want you to see her injuries.
  6. She has casually mentioned violent behavior, but dismissed it lightly: Casually mentioning violent behavior at home could be your friend’s way of trying to tell you that something is wrong. We fear being judged and hence it is sometimes very difficult to speak openly about facing domestic abuse. If you feel a friend is being domestically abused, encourage her to share her problems with you.
  7. Her finances and personal choices are not controlled by her: Domestic abuse victims usually have most of their lives controlled by their partners. This includes finances, choice of clothing, social attendance etc.
  8. The children seem nervous and frequently upset: Children may not say much, but notice a lot. Even if they are not abused, seeing their mother hurt can affect a child and make them moody, withdrawn and upset.

Hi, Thanks for writing in, welcome to the forum. It seems that some kind of an emotional problem is present. Some of this may or may not be part of your personality, but it appears that atleast some part of this is a disorder, that can be improved significantly with professional help. With the brief description provided by you, it is very difficult to exactly tell what the problem is and a detailed evaluation will be needed. However, it appears that the problem is not very severe, but not too mild to be ignored either. Seeing a professional may help to clarify things. In the meantime make sure you get 8 hours of sleep a day, exercise 20-30 minutes a day and have a balanced diet. Spend more time with your well-wishers/ close friends even though you may not feel like. Take care!

I get angry and irritated easily. And when I get angry I blurt out everything and anything hurtful to others. Then when I cool down I regret my misdoings and feel sad and keep crying. I promise I won't do it again but then when I am angry I can't control myself. My married life isf greatly affected due to this. Advice please.

Hi. There has to be a root cause to your anger. Any stress or underlying cause. Anger in itself is not a problem but expressing it in wrong ways is a problem. I advise you to consult psychologist for therapy and counseling.

I just turned 18 year. I was the cool minded boy before I reacher my 18 years age. In the early age, my friend use to do anything to me like they blame me, slap me, use to call me by bad languages, also I got angry that days but I had the ability to control me angry and so I did nothing to them. I am a calm boy! But after reaching my adult age, when someone do bad with me, I gets super angry! I can't explain that how much I get angry! I used to think to kill them, but I control myself very hardly! When I get angry my brain starts to pain! Although I manage my anger very hardly! But please TELL ME THAT WHY MY BRAIN USE TO PAIN WHEN I GET ANGRY AND WHY IT IS HAPPENING AFTER 18 YEARS? please FAST REPLY!

Regarding anger, this thought will solve your problem: How to deal with angry and hateful thoughts? Angry, hateful thoughts are like poison – literally poison. They not only pollute our minds, such thoughts physically release very harmful substances into our body. Anger and hatred toward another person is like trying to hurt the offender by ourselves drinking poison. That doesn’t mean the other person should not be challenged or stopped, BUT that should be done with love. In other words because we LOVE that jiva (part and parcel of the Lord) we don’t want them to suffer so we try to correct their activity so they will not suffer in the future for what they are doing. So my humble advice is if you find someone being dishonest try to correct them with love. If you can’t do that, at least take a breath and think before you speak. Words are like arrows. Once released they cannot be retracted.

What could be the causes of dark circles under my eyes.
I do not drink
I do not smoke I am vegetarian I do sleep for ...
Some of the main causes behind the formation of dark circles are heredity, aging, dry skin, prolonged crying, working for long hours in front of a computer, mental or physical stress, lack of sleep and an unhealthy diet. Both men and women of different age groups can have dark circles.. you will have to visit a cosmetologist who will find the cause and give medicines accordingly

Hello Doctor. I am seeking help. I feel I am depressed and often I get anger attacks and I feel helpless also because of my past life experience. I am 31 years old now.

You are experiencing anger-related depression. Very simply put, you have not been expressing anger perhaps for a long time and that has piled up and has turned inwards to deplete your natural energy, leading to the depression. You need to look back and identify where and why it started, and then deal with it appropriately. This is an important exercise that may have to be done several times until the emotion is totally purged off of its energy. Any unprovoked and unexplained emotions always tend to have its roots way back into the past. It is possible that you have been discouraged to express anger in particular and you have learned to suppress it instead. But the system cannot hold unexpressed emotions for too long. In fact it becomes toxic to your system. For anger, vigorous exercise will deplete the energy but you must know the reasons too. Just talking, even writing about it, shouting it out, etc. Will give it catharsis. Everyday anger must also be expressed appropriately and adequately. Talk to a close friend or confidant or counselor, regularly about your feelings and things should shape up alright.

OCD medications do have sexual side effects, you have to discuss with your psychiatrist and get them revised to least possible. Sometimes it is a challenge for the treating psychiatrist to treat OCD and its associated sexual side effects. If you discuss openly and frankly he will be able to help you. All the best.

Stress: The Number One Killer!

Stress: The Number One Killer!

Stress in the body is a way of responding to threats. These threats need not be physical, but could be in the form of financial trouble, work pressure, relationship difficulties, major life events etc. When we are put under pressure our body releases hormones such as adrenaline and cortisol that makes the heart beat faster, tightens muscles, increases blood pressure and makes the senses alert. 

This is our body’s way of protecting us. However, the body cannot distinguish between life threatening events and the mere pressure of giving a presentation. Experiencing this fight or flight response on a recurring basis can lead to an impaired digestive system, lowered immunity, increased blood pressure and hence risk of strokes and heart attacks and can make you age faster. 

Stress cannot always be avoided but it can be dealt with effectively so as to not allow it to harm your health. For this it is important to first recognise the symptoms of stress. Stress symptoms can be categorized as cognitive, emotional, physical and behavioural symptoms. 

Cognitive Symptoms: 

  1. Memory loss 
  2. Shortened attention span 
  3. Negativity 
  4. Anxiousness Emotional 

Symptoms: 

  1. Depression 
  2. Moodiness 
  3. Anger 
  4. Feeling of isolation and loneliness 

Physical Symptoms: 

  1. Rapid heartbeat 
  2. Lowered libido 
  3. Frequent flu or stomach upsets 
  4. Nausea and dizziness 

Behavioral Symptoms: 

  1. Loss of appetite 
  2. Insomnia or sleeping excessively 
  3. Social withdrawal 
  4. Excessive smoking, drinking or use of other intoxicants 

The amount of stress each person can Tolerate before it begins to affect their body varies. While some people thrive under pressure, others are paralysed by it. Some ways you can increase your stress tolerance levels are: 

Become emotionally aware 
For some people, stress is a normal way of life and they do not realize when they’re putting their body under too much pressure. Being aware of how you feel physically and emotionally can help you realize when you are stressed out. Having the emotional awareness of what it takes to calm down your stressed nerves also helps you bounce back from a stressful situation. 

Build a strong Social Network 
People who have a close and strong network of friends and loved ones who they can share their thoughts and experiences with can tolerate more stress than those who are socially withdrawn and have fewer opportunities for social engagements. 

Get some form of regular physical activity 
Regular exercise benefits both your physical and mental health. Exercising calms your nerves and lowers the production of stress hormones in the system. It also gives you time to focus on yourself and distracts you from other worries and tensions. 

Eat the right food 
Processed foods such as refined carbs or sugary snacks can worsen stress by causing fluctuations in your blood sugar levels. Instead, eat a diet rich in fruits and vegetables along with proteins and healthy fats. Good sleep at night!

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!
