Pain Management affirmations

BHMS

Pain Management affirmations
Affirmations can help you relieve your pain till the time you could reach your physician or go for other modality of treatment.

1) assess the level of pain on a scale of 0 to 10 where 0 means no pain and 10 means unbearable excruciating pain.

Affirm: following set of affirmations for 21 times.

I solve my pain
I dissolve my pain
I resolve my pain
I co-solve my pain
I super solve my pain.

It would be a good idea to investigate your reasons behind pains. If there are no known pathological changes behind your pain, we recommend, explore deeper emotional issues which needs your attention.

Certain key affirmations can actually help in releasing past emotional toxins from your body, making you feel lighter and healthier.

I get imaginations like I swallow very big objects and I vomit immediately. Everything around me happens faster and I vomit without being able to match my physique with that fast imagination. I walk very fast at that time and behave in a fast forward mode. I am now able to control myself during that situation and it happens once in 6 months or a year. What could it be?

Dear lybrate user. This could be due to obsessive compulsive behavior. I suggest you to ignore the symptoms presently unless it interferes with your normal life. Don't start a fight with the symptoms. Take care.

Hair styling is essential when you step out. You need to look good at all times in today’s world. But it is necessary that you submit your hair to as less of heat treatment as you can! The heat tends to dry the shaft out making it dry and frizzy which over a period of causes the hair to brittle. The ultimate result will be hair fall.

Your loss is completely understandable. However with any such stress in life we need to learn to cope up and moron gradually. However it's eels you have been unable to do so. If you remain anxious and depressed and feeling sad for your loss even after 1 year of that trauma, you certainly need help. I would suggest you to consult a psychiatrist without much hesitation.

It is quite obvious that smoking tobacco does not agree with your constitution. It is not that it is good for others but your body reacts like it cannot tolerate the effects of tobacco smoke. The only solution is for you to give it up completely. Anyway, who would want to continue in a habit that gives you so much of discomfort?

Anxiety has all to do with fear and your inability (or so you would tend to think) to handle the same. Fear is based on looking too much into the future and imagining things that usually do not tend to happen (usually 90% of your fears will not happen). You need to change your perception of the fearful stimulus then you can change your response to the fear. The first one is the best and will preempt the need for the second. If you are already far gone into the reaction mode, then you need both responses to counter the attack. The way we see things in life (like half empty or half full glass) is very dependent on our attitude. Attitude may have developed over many years but fortunately can change in a matter of sustained choices made and acted up on now. Accordingly you choose to see things as either threatening or as an opportunity. The opportunist will be positive and work with the situation to make good out of it. The individual who sees it as threatening, will, out of fear, try to avoid/run away from the situation or react with anxiety. Yes, self-belief does impact it too, but you can see that prior to that, perception will tarnish the belief system too. Here, you can see that all the resolution lies in just changing your perception/attitude, even if it is against odds. Changing your response, despite the perception, is building up of your reserves and resources to handle any contingency that life throws up at you. And life throws up situations quite regularly and heavily. For this you need to develop a fit mind and body: The former, by meditation and mind exercises; and the later, by exercises and proper diet. You need good sleep too. Included in the development of the mind is the handling of emotions, in your case, fear. These changes will give you a handle on life and your perceptions and responses. Prayer is really powerful, if you are a spiritual person. Repeat some personally framed affirmations that are geared to calming you down and building confidence. Do a personality course too. Anything that develops you personally will be of great assistance in building resilience.

You are going through grief, which is normal after loss of a loved one. Time is the healer for the emotional and behavioral changes, however if your depression is severe enough to affect you in a significant manner, kindly consult a psychiatrist for short term antidepressant medication, depending on the complaints.

Hi. I am staying away from family since 4 years. I am having lot of mental issues. I am going into depression. I finds my life to be hopeless. My marriage is going to get fixed by family. My family dint accept my boyfriend. Now I am struggling to forget him. I hv no other option than leaving him since my parents hv blackmailed me that they will be no more if I won't forget him. So all these things are making my life difficult. I can't sleep at nights. Mornings I gets up and I finds I am losing everything. Kind of exhausted feeling. I am struggling with life. I am not finding happiness in life. I have no hopes no dreams. I don't know what's going to happen if I continues to be like this. I can't live like this. It's painful. I need some kind of psychiatric help or I might complete lose myself.

Good ​Morning, I understand the situation that you are in. Life is so much more worth living and you know that for a fact since you have lived your life so far, you just need to enjoy what is going on and be in the present; neither in the past nor in the future. I agree that depression and anxiety that you are experiencing are due to circumstantial reasons and I believe they will alleviate when the situation changes. Positive thinking will get you where you need to be in life. If your marriage is fixed, it might be helpful to speak with your fiancee about your feelings so that he understands. If you feel understood, it may be a good relationship. Do not discount others and idealize only one person. Marriage in INDIA is about families and not about only yourself or only your and the other. So it might be useful to count them in and take heart in the fact that the person who they have chosen for you may be the right person also. It is easier said than done. However, moving on to your symptoms, I believe you need to be on medications for a good 3-4 months and we can help you with the same. Please pay and book an appointment and we can discuss options for medication therapy for you. Look forward to hearing from you. If you need help with booking an appointment online with me on this website either text, audio or video appointment for confidential and private consultation you may do so by contacting the help desk of Lybrate.

My boyfriend broke up with me a month back. We broke up exactly 2 days after we went on a long distance. We both were very serious in the relationship. I had been fighting with him a lot for stupid reasons. I am so full of guilt and begged him to take me back. He has been refusing me constantly and says that he does not love me anymore and he has thought over his decisions again. I am tired of hearing all the advice from all kind of people. Grieve, start loving yourself, concentrate on work, pray, meditate, date other people etc. Nothing seems to be working for me. Please help.

Psychiatrist,
Hello lybrate-user I understand you are currently going through emotional crisis. Life sometimes throw challenges which can be overwhelming. All I would say is take few days to first comfort yourself. It's never wise to take decisions in crisis. So just get yourself into other tasks which are easy to handle. If needed talk to professional counsellors. Only when you are back in your old frame of mind think about best way to deal with this issue.

I am a 16 year old and I have been in depression. Which antidepressant so you recommend?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You are too young to need antidepressants. Why don’t you first try other behavior modification and counseling methods and if they fail, you may go for medication. Depression is a mood disorder and the more you deal with your emotions, the better you will feel. You need to particularly look at sadness and anger. If you do 30 minutes of vigorous exercise every day, the brain will produce natural antidepressants. Also a diet high in proteins will help. Be active, socialize often. Expose yourself to sunlight for at least 30 minutes every day, talk to people, do not sleep during the day, wake up by 6 am daily, play contact games, watch entertaining sitcoms, comedies, and cheerful videos. You could listen to good music, read mind-grabbing books (though you must not use it to withdraw from people), go out even on tours, excursions, picnics etc, join a social club, and develop some interesting hobbies, and so on. When these fail to get you out of the depression, then go to a psychiatrist.

Losing a loved one is never easy and what you are going through is a natural process of grieving. It would be advisable to engage yourself in physical activity, be around your loved ones, and rather than feeling it, counteract- express your feelings and talk about it to people who you consider are close to you.

Hye. Thanks for the query. There must be some change, either in your eating habits, activity levels or stress that has caused weight gain. Also lack of physical activity may have stopped or reduced leading to weight gain. Also your poor eating habits, lack of exercise may have led to hypothyroidism. There’s no overnight fix when it comes to healthy weight loss, but you can adjust your lifestyle to promote quick, natural weight loss for the benefit of your health and your appearance. Successful, long-term weight management needs to focus on more than the food you eat and the pounds you lose. It needs to focus on your overall health. Reshape your body and your lifestyle by adopting healthy habits and breaking unhealthy ones. Replace all processed foods in your diet with vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low-fat dairy, lean meats, eggs, legumes, nuts, seeds and seafood. Focus on the variety of whole, unprocessed foods you can eat instead of dwelling on the junk food you eliminated from your diet. Eat smaller portions at every meal and avoid going back for seconds. Take a smaller scoop of rice, half of a piece of chicken instead of a whole piece and one less egg in your morning omelet, for example. Make time for breakfast every morning. Eating breakfast helps prevent overeating and is a habit of people who successfully lose weight. Pack to-go meals instead of eating convenience foods when you’re not home. Store foods like chopped fruits and vegetables or cooked grains, legumes, eggs and meats in your refrigerator so you always have something to grab when you’re in a rush. Buy fresh vegetables and fruits from the grocery store if you forget to bring healthful food from home. When you can’t avoid dining at a restaurant, opt for a salad as a starter, and always ask for the dressing on the side. Clear soups, lean meats, seafood and grain-based dishes like roti, whole grain bread are other good choices. Exercise for 30 to 60 minutes at least three times per week to build muscle and burn more calories. Pilates, strength training, aerobics, swimming, dancing and yoga or a sport like football are ideal choices. If you’re new to exercising, start with brisk walking and jogging. Adopt physically demanding hobbies like bicycling, hiking, jogging, power walking to promote faster weight loss. If you don’t have time for new hobbies, increase your physical activity with things like walking the dog, playing with the kids or jogging instead of driving to a nearby store or taking the stairs instead of the elevator.

Ocd is based on fear of an abnormal kind. You have done the right thing by trying cbt and since that has not produced the desired effect, it is time to include medication. This can become a very crippling disease and you should not burden yourself or your wife with the length of time for the treatment. All psychotropic drugs have side-effects. So you will have to bear with that and focus on the main problem. Please take her parents with you to determine the possible developmental issues that may have contributed to this condition. This is a fear-based condition and for some reason, she has not been dealing with this childhood fear which has now developed into these repetitive adaptations to seem to need it for normal functioning. The behavior will then become based on magical thinking and certain rituals will become necessary to do normal things making her believe that either the frequency or the ritual is important to its success. This, of course, is a fallacy but there will come a time that even if told the truth, her belief will defy any logic and she will continue behaving like that even if it cripples her in her daily routines. It only appears as though some other force is behind these behaviors and that she is compelled to act in this fashion. That is obviously not true but no one can convince her of anything different. The obsession is a repeating thought pattern with no meaningful outcome; and the compulsiveness is the need to act on those obsessions also in a repeated behavior pattern as though she just cannot help herself, like the washing if hands. There are certain behavioral techniques to be implemented and if they work she may get out of this condition rather easily. If that does not work as desired, then medication has to be introduced, and in combination with counseling much work can be achieved.

Hi, lybrate-user you are feeling stressed and its stress induced anger. You should know your triggers- which make you angry and irritable. Note it down and monitor it. Practice deep breathing daily 15 minutes and exercise 30 minutes. Eat more fruits and green leafy vegetables. Less of caffeine. You can consult for psychotherapy.

I think that you are experiencing panic attacks suddenly after your son was born. May be you have suddenly become too aware of responsibility and feeling inadequate to the situation. You could meet with a counselor and see what are the things frightening you, and why now. The accident may have shaken up your vulnerability to eventualities in life and shaken up your equilibrium a tad. What you need to focus on is to do vigorous exercise of the aerobic kind for the heart?s fitness; meditation for the brain?s fitness; sleep for a well rested mind and body; and a diet with lots of vegetables, fruits, and whole grains. Emotionally you need the help of a counselor and that will help you tremendously to move from panic to normal fear. Vigorous exercise, especially of the callisthenic kind, will make your heart, which is a muscle, grow larger; and then your heart will need to beat less often and you will respond to the panic with a calmer disposition. If your mind, constitution, and your emotions are in check and fit, you will never be disturbed again. The earlier you tackle this, the easier it is going to be. You will need to check with an endocrinologist, if there is any thyroid condition to be examined but as it stands these are not the signs.

Dear, welcome to lybrate. Yoga alone can never cure depression. Clinical depression or depressive disorder is a neurochemical disorder. Clinical depression is usually treated with a combination of psychiatric medicines, psychotherapy, life style changes, meditation and exercise. I hope you are undergoing psychiatric treatment, otherwise, please approach a psychiatrist. Once you make the necessary amendments in your life with the help of the above said therapies and life style changes, learn how to manage the depressive episodes without medicines and learn to relax, the medicines can be weaned off over a period of one year. The best option for you is to undergo counseling and depression related therapy. Take care.
