I think I am suffering from some psycho problem. Actually since the time of school I had no frnds and those who I have. Lost them just coz I was studious and simple guy. From there only I suffered from high mental pressure. I felt so alone and keep writing stories on this topic only and always crying in my room for hours and suddenly starting talking myself. After 5 years I was out of that but in College I lost my love and was back into that past but one girl become my friend and we had physical relationship too to let myself get out of that depression. But after 1 year of physical relationship we had. I felt ignored when I read her chats with other people. I am unable to accept that she is only my best friend. I live alone in pg and also not in contact with neither of my brothers and sisters nor any College friend but only her. I am not getting myself what I want only life as I kept on hiding things from all and crying in my room after College time. I want to know why I am unable to take things normal as other people and why keep looking in my past and so emotionally weak. Here also I am unable to define my problem properly.

Hi its basically you want to be loved by your friends and family. Since you are living alone in pg, you feel ignored and on the same hand, you have less no. Of friends which makes you realise this time and again. However, being in relationship with any one is perfectly fine until you and the other person are sharing some kind of happiness. You are more or less insecured about losing your loved ones due to the incidents that happened in your life. This is the major reason that you constantly dwell in past. You should be determined to get healthy and fine like others ; with proper medication and conselling, you ll get yourself back. I need proper detailed history of your to work upon your case and give you best possible results.

You may try some abdominal exercises but such selective removal of weight is not possible without surgery and that too if needed. Your weight is okay, just relax, like and love yourself, develop some hobbies, take good nutritious balanced diet, do some routine exercise and walking. If still unhappy meet an expert. You may consult me.

Hello, I have a question about mental health problems that occur in a man when a girlfriend dumps him. How can such a man can recovered from his problems? Expecting a reply.

Hello Arjun, Any kind of heart break and/or separation can cause emotional pain and lead to a lowered self esteem too. Time is the best healer in such a case. Give yourself time. You will bounce back to normal in a few months. Additonally keep yourself engaged with whatever work/studies you do. When your heart feels heavy with sadness or anger then find an outlet for your sadness or anger; express these emotions to someone else in whatever way you can, either by talking to someone or by writing, drawing or singing about it. Hope this helps. Ttake care of yourself in this phase and don't run the events of the past in your midn like a reel. Allow your mind and body to heal. Good Luck.

Stress, Emotion And Meditation.

Doctor of Medicine (M.D.), MBBS Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery
Internal Medicine Specialist, Bangalore
Stress, Emotion And Meditation.

Stress, emotions and meditation:

Many of us got free advice from others to meditate regularly for destress and good mental health. Very few people say how exactly meditation helps.
Here is scientific answer, why we have to meditate? how it helps in reducing stress and increase in emotional intelligence.

Meditation is a science:
Scientifically meditation helps in reducing stress in 3 important ways 

1) Interpretation and perception of stress due to any situation is basically projected from his past memory.

Past memory differs from person to person. This is the reason there is different response from different individuals for same stressful event.

Meditation goes directly to the root of the stress response by releasing the remembered stresses that trigger new stress.

2) With each stressful event, there is release of adrenaline and corticosteroid.

In long term meditators levels of cortisol and adrenaline are found to be lower and their coping mechanisms are stronger.

3) The amygdala, the fight or flight part of the brain which is important for anxiety, fear and stress.

That area got smaller in the group that went through the mindfulness-based meditation.

The change in the amygdala was also correlated to a reduction in stress.

It seems that scientific reasearch from west from 1970 onwards confirmed, what yogis in india and east have been teaching for ages. 

How meditation helps in controlling emotions?
Researchers found an increase grey matter in the prefrontal cortex of brain, as well as the posterior cingulate, left hippocampus, temporo parietal junction and part of the brain stem called the pons. 
These areas all regulate learning, cognition, memory, empathy and emotional regulation as well as self relevance.

Studies have found that a daily meditation practice can lower blood pressure and cholesterol levels, decrease anxiety and depression, and reverse the biological markers of aging.

Conclusion: All stress originates from the perceptions we attach to either events from the past or thoughts of the future.
The immediate moment, this very second by its very nature has no power to generate stress.

The act of meditation is simply just a process whereby one focuses the mind in the here and now the immediate present. It is for this reason that meditation is one of the most powerful things we can do to reduce stress and its negative effects in life.

I regularly do smoking and drinking but really wanna quit from these all things. So can you please suggest me some really helpful tips so that I can be free from these bad habits?

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Jaipur
Hi, to left your alcohol and smoking the foremost important thing is that your motivation. If you are motivated then you can. As we know that alcohol and tobacco work on brain and person who is used to consume it get dependent on that to work properly. If he wouldn't took these he would feel withdrawal in the form of tremors in hand, sweating, palpitation, anxiety etc in case of alcohol and some time it may leads to seizure also. In case of tobacco he feel irritability, unable to concentrate on work, remain preoccupied with same. So its prudent to take help of de-addiction specialist to manage all these. Other then that medication are also available to decrease craving. A de-addiction specialist also help you by other psychosocial intervention like motivation enhancement therapy, relapse prevention therapy and other one. So in order to get proper help you should visit a psychiatrist.

If a person drink alcohol how to get rid of the problem so that he never drink alcohol again.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
If this person has a desire to quit drinking, that is a good starting point. In that case do the following: under such circumstances it is best that you admit him into a de-addiction center and let him stay there for at least 6 months and after that attend counseling with a professional. There are medicines that help with the drinking just to ease the initial craving and to act as an antabuse i. E. He will have a serious reaction, if he consumes even a small quantity of alcohol or alcohol based substances. It has to be carefully monitored to see that he not only consumes the medication but is also avoiding alcohol. Ultimately, it is his will power and the support that he receives from the medical fraternity and his close and dear ones. He must also learn to substitute and deal with the oral need, a rigid value system, the script issue, and of course take a look at all the genetic factors to plan a strategy not to get into what is called? cross addictions? i. E. Another form of addiction that may appear alright but is in fact as bad as the primary addiction. The center or hospital and the counselor will advise and guide him on several measures and precautions he will need to take to stay with his resolve. Even after the rehabilitation he must attend aa meetings and continue this support for a long time. The family will also need to attend some sessions and go for al-anon meetings for their co-dependency issues. He cannot be treated in isolation because the family has gotten used to his drinking and have made some unhealthy adaptations to somehow cope. The children will also have to attend meetings to work out their issues because of the father? s habit. In fact, they are all suffering from the adult children of alcoholics syndrome (acoas), which in effect means that they are genetically predisposed to alcoholism or can have cross addiction problems and that they will have similar traits of the abusing alcoholic but in a milder form. There are special support groups for them all over the world. Should they touch or indulge in alcohol or any addictive substances or behaviors, they could also become full-fledged addicts themselves.

Hie lybrate-user. Don't worry keep taking medicines and start doing meditation and exercises. In the short run, Take a break as soon as you recognize that you're angry. Stop what you're doing, get away from whatever is irritating you, and just take a breather. Breathe deeply, from your diaphragm; breathing from your chest won't relax you. Picture your breath coming up from your "gut. Slowly repeat a calm word or phrase such as "relax, "take it easy. Repeat it to yourself while breathing deeply. Use imagery; visualize a relaxing experience, from either your memory or your imagination. Ask for the support of someone you trust. If you're still upset, sharing your concerns with a close friend or confidant might help. Try to see some humor in what angered you. After you've calmed down and established that you're ready to get over the incident, try to see the lighter side. In the long run, Do some physical exercises. The endorphins from exercise can help you calm down, and moving your body provides a physical outlet for your rage. Cognitive restructuring - Ask yourself honestly if you see everyone and everything as an adversary or an obstacle. Odds are, the world isn't exactly that way - but you think it is. Change the way you think about life. Keep a journal of what upsets you and how you plan to fix it. Lastly, if all else fails, visit a mental health professional Thank You.
