I am 24 years old and I have a lot of family issue as well as relationship issue. Its like in both case I am avoided. My parents ignore me as well as my partner avoid me. I just feel like dying and I do not eat food for hours and days if something goes wrong and I just take pills to harm myself. Please help me.

You are definitely suffering from the Rejection Issue. What you do is set up the rejection, and then blame yourself and want to hurt yourself. This will go on until you succeed to do something very harmful to yourself. You have a lot of work to do on yourself with a professional, immediately. Otherwise I see that you may loose your family and friend, forever.You are just 24 and life has only begun and you already want to end it! You sound more and more like someone with a serious rejection issue. You try to do the best for other people so that they don’t reject you but yet they do. This means that you need to look at what you are doing to make others reject you. It has become so bad that I feel you are now rejecting yourself in contemplating suicide through these pills! You may be angry about something and because you think that it cannot be expressed, you are turning it inwards. The identity crisis is a typical issue of someone who is dependent on others for acknowledgement and tends to identify with other personalities. You probably suffer from low self-esteem. But far worse than that is my fear that you have this rejection issue, which is compounded with abandonment issues and separation anxiety. The fear of acceptance may then trigger a performance-oriented individual who will depend entirely on other people’s opinion and assessment of herself. This will make you even more vulnerable and susceptible to rejection, and you may hurt very badly and easily at the slightest sign of rejection. There is a way about this, but meet with a counselor first and see what can be worked out to learn to accept yourself first. If you did this you will naturally perform well and will not depend on others, entirely, for their acceptance. If you know of any reason to believe that this rejection is true from your childhood it would help tremendously. Talk to your parents and find out what they remember or you could take them with you to meet with the counselor. If you learn to accept yourself first then the identity may be formed, but the best way to develop an identity is to know your emotions and how to express them. Your feelings are a very good indicator of who you are. A counselor will help you do this well.

Anxiety: Why Bust It and How?

FIPS, PGDMLS, DPM, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Mumbai
Anxiety: Why Bust It and How?

Anxiety is nothing but stress and can result from everyday work-life pressure. One's body becomes alert in a stressful situation. Too much anxiety and stress is harmful for one's health and can cause severe damages.

The blood supply to the brain increases during anxiety, thereby quickening heart rate and tensing the muscles of the body to facilitate a state of high alertness. High anxiety levels can give rise to a number of health issues and why you should get rid of anxiety.

  1. Depression: Anxiety can cause a person to develop depression, which can be life-threatening. Thus, preventing anxiety can help in preventing depression as well.
  2. High blood pressure: The blood pressure rises during periods of anxiety. These temporary spikes can result in damage to heart health and blood vessels in the body. Anxiety may also cause a person to smoke or consume alcohol, which affects blood pressure.
  3. Stomach problems: Anxiety is known to cause problems in digestion as symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome and an upset stomach are reported to occur. It may cause vomiting, abdominal pain, and constipation.
  4. Disorders of the respiratory system: People with respiratory diseases face complications due to anxiety. Breathing problems such as hyperventilation can cause further complications.

Because anxiety does not do any good to you and your health, it is pertinent to control it.

How to best deal with anxiety:

  1. Deep Breathing: A 5-minute breathing regime is a sure shot way to relieve anxiety. Sit straight with closed eyes and place your hands on your abdomen. First start with slow inhalation of air through the nose. Feel the breath through your abdomen and head and then reverse the process by exhaling it out through the mouth. Psychologists state that deep breathing helps to bring down stress and anxiety by lowering the blood pressure.
  2. Meditation: Meditation for a few minutes daily helps relieve anxiety. As per a research, doing meditation daily changes the neural pathways of the brain, thereby making it more flexible towards stress. Meditation is the simplest way to beat anxiety. All you have to do is just sit straight with feet on the floor and closed eyes. Next just focus your energy on reciting a mantra.
  3. Talk to someone: Distracting yourself by talking to friends and family helps. The mind starts wandering when in anxiety and alone and the effective technique to talk to some trusted person helps. The support you get from family and friends just boosts you back and wards you off the symptoms.

I am SRINIVAS I have smoking habit so many times I ignore that habit but I didn't stop so please tell me some tips.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You have to try and try again and again until you succeed. It helps to change tact each time to introduce something different. You have to quit cold turkey because the body and mind will torture you endlessly while attempting a reduction in smoking. The tobacco tar in cigarette smoke lines your lung with huge patches that make that portion dysfunctional. Your oxygen carrying capacity is jeopardized, and breathing is impinged on. But don’t be discouraged because it is not too late even now to reverse all the ill-effects of smoking. I don’t know what other organs could be damaged but do go for a thorough medical check-up to assess the effects of your abuse. Regarding improving your lungs, do a lot of aerobic exercise breathing through your nostrils only. Then there are a lot of deep breathing exercises in Yoga which you can learn too. Deep breathing cleanses your system and lungs and restores it to good health. Deep breathing uses the 80% of the lungs which are not normally used in normal breathing and even when exerting yourself. The greatest effect is in the lungs because this substance is processed through the respiratory system directly through the lung surface. When quitting, you must take one day at a time; though you must give up all smoking at once, and promptly. If you look too far ahead you will get discouraged and will give up. If you sit and count the number of days you have given up, that will also focus too much on achievement. You must focus on the here and now, on that day to be precise. After all quitting is not that easy due to many factors. So even if you fail one day, you must try and try again. Very few people succeed in their first attempt. Your persistence will eventually pay off. 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 the habit. The information is really scary but true and you must remind yourself about this every day. The nicotine in tobacco smoke stimulates the heartbeat 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 chew gum. If the urge is too strong, then use nicotine gums and 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. You could also join twitter2quit program and enjoy its success to give up smoking.

You are risking your health, in my opinion. You should get yourself measured for hypertension every month. If your reading is below 130/85 mmgg exercises and good diet should be maintained without medicines. If it is above 130/85 mmgg, you should continue take minimum dose of hypertension medicine. Hypertension is called a silent killer. It will never create a problem for you in the short period. But in long term, continuous hypertension can cause kidney, heart related problems. Consult a physician immediately.

You must immediately take him to a counselor because he is manifesting clear behavior of someone who is really very angry, and if you do not handle him well you may cause more problems. There is an unresolved issue from childhood which has surfaced just now and is looking for a resolution. You as parents may be aware of the event that might have caused this disturbance to surface now. Pleas accompany him to the counselor. Your role ass parents may have just been completed and he will need a good friend in you.

My name is rashmi singh. I am depressed with my life. And I am confused what I will do after marriage. Me.
By your question I can assume that you are getting married, and a little tension before marriage is obvious, but try to avoid the tension and maintain your confidence. As you are a strong person and if a woman decides, then she can do anything, woman is only the support system of the family, so you must not be in fear for you new life, instead you have to confident for that. As the life now you are going to start, will define you as an individual personality. Also there are few tips to reduce mental depression- mental depression can be managed by engaging yourself in other works, and by doing meditation in morning with little exercise. Avoid listening or watching any type of emotional songs or movies, instead watch comedy serials and remove the cause which is creating tension. Try to leave the bed in early morning and take a walk in nearby park with little exercise.

Dr, I had protected intercourse on 14th day of my menstrual cycle. However, the first few seconds were unprotected. Out of fear, I took Ipill after 15 hours. Now, it's been 7 days since I took Ipill. Still, no bleeding (neither BTB nor periods). I am very scared as I read that even few seconds of penetration can cause pregnancy and also, I was in my fertile window. Next expected period is on 19th May. Please let me know if I can take serum beta HCG test to rule out any risk? Does no BTB means I am at risk? Also, what are my chances of being pregnant.

You had sex in your fertile window, and unprotected sex can definitely cause pregnancy. But sine you had an i-pill within time it is less likely that you would conceive. I-pill has it's own side effects like irregular bleeds, disturbed ovulations and mood swings. Hence frequent use is discouraged. Serum beta hcg only give a probable guide of pregnancy. The only best thing would be to wait and watch. If you miss your scheduled period this month, do a urine pregnancy test. If it tests positive you are most probably pregnant, you need to consult a gynaecologist without delay. If it tests negative you can wait for periods further.

Please note the following for your condition: • Avoid big meals late in the evening. You need three to four hours to digest a big meal. • Spicy or sugary food, even at suppertime, is usually a bad idea. Spices can irritate your stomach, and when it tosses and turns, so will you. Having a lot of sugary food—especially chocolate, which contains caffeine—can make you feel jumpy. • Try a soothing aromatic bath before bedtime. Add 5 drops lavender oil and 3 drops ylang-ylang oil to warm bathwater and enjoy a nice soak. Limit your screen time staring at computers, TVs or phones in the evening before going to bed Also take Nux vom 30 - thrice daily for next 7 days and revert back.

Sit alone is a dangerous thing. Do not sit alone. If we sit alone. Think about past and future aspects it leads to depressive thoughts. Sit alone with a good mood. When we have a problems. Alone thinking it is not good. As per your age it is not good attitude. When you feel fed up it is better to share your personal feelings with your close friends and family members. They will help to you to come out from this status. Directly or indirectly. When you express your problems. It will not solved to tell others. Atleast the severity of the problem reduced in your mind. So better to make a very good friendly relations with others. We are human beings we get so many problems in regular problems. Some one have capability to control their problems. Some may not. In this stage you do not have capability to control your thoughts. So better to express. Be friendly. Be think in a positive manner. Better to concentrate on your studies. Develop busy schedule. Ok all the best.

Hello lybrate user, some people become uncomfortable to get accustomed to new environments like new people, new course, new syllabus, new food. But this is unavoidable situation to every one, some may not handle better, so this is not a grave problem. You r completely normal, all you need is good friend s, good movies and good books. Don't think too much, that doesn't change any thing. Try to accept the people around. Ever body around us may not be 100% the way we like but we need to see the good side of them and move on. Every body is not 100% perfect. Don't try to stay lonely. Share you problem with you r siblings. Go for evening walk and have bath to get good sleep. I advise you to watch the following video in you tube -' meet nick vijucic. The man with no limbs. Last but not least: never hesitate to consult a qualified doctor along with you r parents if you feel the same for few more weeks. It does not make you a psychiatric patient. Every body consults in this competitive world. Don't use any quack remedies. Keep smiling for few minutes that my consultation fee for typing this message. God bless u, make you r parents proud.
