But practice the following poses if you don’t have any medical condition or pregnancy or else take an advice from your concern doctor and then only perform these. 1.Shashankasana: Sit in Vajrasana with hands on the thighs. The upper body is straight and relaxed. Inhaling raise both arms above the head. Exhaling keep the back straight and bend upper body and arms forward from the hips, until arms and forehead touch the floor. The buttocks remain on the heels. Breathing normally remain in this position for a while. Relax the whole body, especially the shoulders, neck and back. Inhaling keep the back straight and raise the upper body and arms. Exhaling return to the starting position. Practice the exercise 3 times in total. Remain bending forward for sometime and consciously perceive the movement of the breath on the spine. 2.Virasana: Sit in Vajrasana. Hands rest on the thighs and the body is relaxed. Bring the left foot beside the right knee with the sole of the foot flat on the floor. Place the left elbow on the left knee and rest the chin in the hand. Right hand rests on the right thigh. Tuck the toes of the right foot under. The right knee remains in contact with the floor. Transfer the weight onto the right heel. Concentrate on a fixed point in front.

I generally get nightmares of being raped or chased either by a man or by animals. I have a dysfunctional family set up. Sometimes things just appear so confusing like I seriously do not know what I want to do in life. I just do not feel right even if everything just seems perfect yet I feel empty as if something is missing.

Hi lybrate-user, You need to talk to a counselor in detail as there is fear, insecurity and lack of clarity. The counselor can help you out to overcome such thoughts with therapy .The emotional support from your friends or relatives can help you to sail through the tough time. Hope you will meet a counselor soon and overcome this situation soon.

Ocd symptoms tend to increase during stress. Please recognise your stresses at this time (may be impending delivery, may be relationship with spouse/in laws etc, may be financial, social pressures etc). Fear of harm to pregnancy may also be obsessional. Talk about your fears to your trusted friends/husband. Tell them that you know which ones are un reasonable fears. Best wishes to you.

Causes, Symptoms and Treatments of OCD

MD - Psychiatry, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Delhi
Causes, Symptoms and Treatments of OCD

OCD or obsessive compulsive disorder is a mental condition, which traps people in a cycle of repetitive thoughts that push them to do repetitive behaviors. As the name states, the obsession over certain things compels them to do it over and over again. These actions will only help you feel relieved for a short time and soon the cycle starts back again.

Symptoms of OCD: 

The symptoms of OCD are classified into two groups, one for the obsessive behavior and the other for compulsive behavior. Some of the common symptoms for these are mentioned below:

Obsessive behaviors:

As the name states this means obsessing over certain things, which varies from person to person. Some of the things could be:

  1. Being scared about making mistakes
  2. The fear of being embarrassed in public situations
  3. Constantly being scared about contamination by germs, microbes or dirt
  4. Doubts about sure and simple situations and the need to be constantly reassured about them

Compulsive behaviors

The obsessions usually results in compulsive behaviors, which you may need to perform to reassure and relieve yourself of the anxiety temporarily. Some of these may include:

  1. Trying to constantly arrange things in a certain way and still not being satisfied
  2. Thoughts, words and images being stuck in your head throughout the day that may keep you disturbed and cause to lose sleep
  3. You may even repeat specific words or actions multiple times as a measure of self reassurance.
  4. Hoarding of items, which have no value

Causes of OCD:

Biological factors: Certain chemical imbalances in the brain may lead to OCD, which may happen due to hormonal or biological changes. In fact certain infections are also known to trigger OCD in people.

Environmental factors: Certain types of mental trauma have been known to trigger OCD as well, such as

  1. Office, school, college or other work related stresses over a long period of time
  2. The passing away of a near and dear one
  3. Relationship problems
  4. Repressed abuses from earlier in life

Treatments: 

Most treatments of OCD are categorized into two types:

  1. Cognitive behavioral therapy: This is a counseling based therapy where you may be slowly asked to face your fears and overcome them over a period of time.
  2. Medications: Antidepressants, inhibitors, or antipsychotic drugs or relaxants in various combinations may be used to treat OCD.
  3. Electroconvulsive therapy: Only in the rarest of cases would doctors consider electroconvulsive therapy, if the patient is a danger to themselves or others around them.

Sir, I have a bad habit of smoking, I want to leave it, how can I do it please sussed me.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
The urge to discontinue is hampered by many factors but the worst of them is the conditioning. In fact these conditions can exist all through the day unlike other addictions. But your desire to want to stop is the most important factor. It is important to find out about the ill-effects of smoking to have a reason that alarms you about continuing in the habit. The information is really scary but true. The nicotine in tobacco smoke stimulates the heart beat to raise the blood pressure in no time at all. So you must avoid it like the plague: it is just very bad medicine for you. In fact it is highly toxic too. You will need to stop smoking or consuming any tobacco related items with immediate effect. You should start vigorous exercises, gradually increasing it over a period of time. Do deep breathing exercises every time you feel like smoking (try Yoga), and replace the oral urge with some healthy food substitute to satiate the need. You may also take hard candy or chewing gum. If the urge is too strong, then use nicotine chewing gum or nicotine patches, for a little while until the smoking drive reduces, substantially. You may also join Smokers Anonymous in your city where the support is really extraordinary for like-minded people who are also in the same situation. Keep yourself occupied or engaged with interesting activities during the times when it is most tempting. Keep the company of non-smokers for some time i.e. at least for the first 21 days. Above all announce it to everyone that you have quit smoking. Here’s a piece of very good advice: even if you accidentally/willfully take a cigarette, it is not the end of the world – you can start the cessation all over again. You must persevere with the best support until you defeat this addiction. Counseling is very useful in the initial stages and when temptations are at their highest.

Dear lybrate-user, You are under psychiatric care since 2 years. Please talk to your psychiatrist about your feeling of shooting yourself and also your love. The psychiatrist may adjust the dose or add another antidepressant or mood stabiliser and/or psychotherapy. If she/he feels suicidal risk is high, she/he may give ECT or rTMS in addition. Please note that feeling of shooting yourself comes and goes off like a wave. Talk to someone close to you in your family or friends. Think of the good things you got in your life for which life is worth living. If you have access to a gun, please hand it over to others.

Do living alone outside of city and in a non social environment increases anxiety. Please advise.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

Do living alone outside of city and in a non social environment increases anxiety. Please advise.
To some extent you are right but not completely. You already have so many fear related problems and those can be aggravated by this type of social isolation. Remember we are all social animals, gregarious by nature and need each other. We live in an interdependent manner with other people. When we do not have socializing opportunities, we can be under some stress. The final test of a personality is always in a social context, so there will be no opportunity for that and the isolation can be rather stressful. You are also at an age when this will matter a lot and you need to find a resolution to your other anxiety problems to feel better. Deal with your fear with a counselor and a lot of your problems will reduce in size. Do not depend only on medication alone: combine it with therapy too.

I am smoking since last 3 to 4 years . Nd I want to leave smoking as soon as possible please give me a solution any tabs or any other help to leave smoking.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Best age to stop smoking is before 40 ,In fact do not start all Only by using strong will power and avoiding all situations where you feel like smoking, chewing tobacco or drinking or using drugs/ weed, avoiding friends who smoke and diverting mind by reading or chewing a gum, like NICORETTE and taking a walk when you crave for a smoke can all help. You can chew Nicorette gum which is nicotine replacement. There are medicines available. Which can be prescribed if asked personally Cigarette smoking is a leading preventable cause of mortality. It kills more than 60 lakh people worldwide every year. More than 50% of regular smokers would invariably die from tobacco-related illnesses which includes heart attack, cancer or asthmatic lung diseases. Best age to stop smoking is before 40 31st May is “World No Tobacco Day” Quitting smoking before the age of 40 is associated with larger decline in premature death than stopping it at a later date. Best age therefore to stop smoking is before 40. However, stopping smoking even after the age of 50 is still associated with lower risk of death as compared to those who continue to smoke. Even in smokers aged 80 years or more, quitting smoking appears to reduce some mortality.

I have stammering problem from 15-20 years. I took advice from many doctors. Some told me that it will be decrease when my age is increasing, but I notice that stammering is also increasing with my age. I did speech therapy also, but can't get any positive response. Some doctors said it is mentally problem. Please tell me Is there any solution for my speech problem?

B. Sc. Speech and Hearing

Normal stammering happens to all. But when it's out of control we call it stuttering. In this case coping mechanisms lag in us. Speech therapy definitely helps. Yeah its psychogenic, you need to understand it better. Speech therapy must help.

If you didn't want to have sex with him and said no. It's ok because you have the right to do what you want. Your friend seems to be bisexual which is a variation of sexuality which is seen in very small percentage in humans. Though it's considered normal scientifically, but in indian society it is looked down upon and such people face a lot of marginalisation and rejection from the rest, which leads to mental and emotional trauma for them. I suggest that you don't try to change him at all. Try to understand him and his life. He might be having sex with men and women but in his private moments, he could be sad and disturbed. If he's interested to visit a psychiatrist / counsellor to vent out any emotional baggage.

My brother is having a stammering problem from his childhood. Now,he is 25 years old and is a doctor. But that problem is not gone. We have shown him to the ENT doctors and they have concluded that there is no defect in his throat. That problem has taken a mental illness and he is under total depression and not ready to do further studies and always remains in angry mood. We have also shown him to the speech therapists but it is of no use for his problem. How can his problem be tackled efficiently and effectively?

M.Phil clinical psychology

Stammering could have neurological, medical or psychological causal factors. Consult a neurologist first and get all investigations if it is a neurological problem. Sometimes, due to anxiety also people have trouble like this and stammering is the result. For psychological reason, consult a clinical psychologist who may use behavior therapy principles in its treatment management. Lastly, I would also like to tell you sometimes due to such problems, people develop depression and stress as they have difficulty in normal conversation and they feel frustrated. So dealing with frustration is also important point to be kept in mind in their treatment option.
