Hello, aap ek tarah ki anxiety se safar kar rahe hai, jisme kuch unhoni hone ka dar laga rehta hai, per pata nahi hota kya. Fear of death. Remember to take a deep breath and try to find something to do to get your mind off of you anxieties and stresses. A person could take a walk, listen to some music, read the newspaper, watch tv, play on the computer or do an activity that will give them a fresh perspective on things. This will distract you from your current worries. A lot of times, our worrying can make the problem even worse. All the worrying in the world will not change anything. All you can do is to do your best each day, hope for the best, and when something does happen, take it in stride. If you still have trouble managing your anxiety of the future, then talking to a counselor or clergyman can be of great help. There are ways to help manage your fear and all it takes is some effort to find those answers. Aap psychiatrist se consult kare.

How to reduce tension and depression due to family problems.

Advanced Skills in Counselling, BSIC, Advanced Trainee of Transactional Analysis, DCS, Hypnotherapist
Psychologist,
Every one has stress and tension in work and family. The trick is in how you respond to the stress and how you manage it. Besides the stress there will be some good times also. Try to remember these times too, which will help you to see a balanced outlook to life. By thinking only about the stress will not solve the problem. Look for workable solutions. If you have any queries about this please contact me on private chat.

Hi mam, he is in shock he will take time to resonate with reality. Best thing right now would be to give him some time for realization. If still it persists I suggest you both to go to a psychologist for family therapy.

You have trans gender tendency and need to get counselled .Gender dysphoria is the distress caused by the feeling that your gender identity does not match the biological gender that you are. For example, if you were born with the genitals of a boy, but feel that you are female, or the other way around. This used to be called "gender identity disorder". However, this suggests that identifying yourself as the other gender is an illness. It is only an illness if it causes you unhappiness, or affects your health and well-being. There are many ways you can obtain help and support if you are struggling as a result of your gender identity. If you wish to change your gender, the medical profession will support you in doing so. There are gender identity clinics with a wide variety of professionals who specialise in helping people make changes so they are happy with their gender. "Gender identity" means the sex (gender) we most feel we are. For most people this is the gender they were assigned at birth as a result of the appearance of their genitals. However, for some people there is a mismatch between the gender they feel they are, and the gender they appear as to other people. Gender dysphoria is the term used by most health professionals for the distress people experience when the gender they were assigned when they were born doesn't match the gender they feel they are. Dysphoria means unhappiness. So "gender dysphoria" describes the distress and problems which may be caused by gender identity issues. Gender identity disorder is becoming an outdated term. It is gradually being changed because the term suggests a mental illness. It is not an illness to be transsexual, or to feel you should be another gender than the one you are born with. However, it can cause some problems and distress. You may wish to ask for medical help if you feel this way. You may need help coming to terms with the effect it has on your life. Or you may wish for help in changing your appearance to fit with the gender you feel is right for you. In order to access this care there has to be a medical term. Nowadays it is understood that being transsexual or transgender does not refer to illness - it refers to diversity. This is why the term "gender dysphoria" is now used instead of the diagnosis "gender identity disorder". Some more definitions Transsexual: a person who feels an overwhelming desire to make a physical change and live their life as a member of the opposite gender. Many transsexual people actively wish for and undergo an operation to change their gender. Transgender or trans: this can refer to a number of different gender experiences. It can include transsexual people, transvestites and cross-dressers. It is a word which can be used differently by different people, so may be confusing. Trans woman/trans man: a trans woman is a person who has been assigned as a male at birth, but who later identifies as a woman. A trans man is a person who has been assigned as a female at birth, but later identifies as a male. These are terms used BEFORE a person has any gender-changing surgery, or makes any legal changes. After either of these events, they would normally refer to themselves as a woman or a man respectively. Transvestite: a transvestite is a person who dresses in the clothing of the opposite sex. This usually refers to a man dressing as a woman. Transvestites do not necessarily wish for permanent changes to their gender.

MBBS, DGO (cal)
General Physician,
I think your psychiatrist is taking care. Why thinking of hypnotherapy? if required your psychiatrist might suggest. That method is also not full proof. Continue his medicines. If feel not satisfied take a second opinion. But remember, you need to continue meds for longtime. Don't discontinue treatment without your doctor's advice.

Hi, I am Samiksha, age 28 and mother of two daughters. After my first child was born, I left my job and became a full time mother. Before that I worked as Legal Manager in Thompson Routers. I feel easily frustrated, depressed, my BP and sugar level goes down, unable to control my anger and thousand other bad things happening with me which in contrary ruining my Marriage. Since past 7 year, I have been suffering from thyroid mal function. Many times due to depression, I had suicidal thoughts but then I feel bad for my small kids. My husband is also a independent Lawyer. I stay at home alone for whole week with my kids and no one talking and sharing my feelings. I keep thinking all crazy and junk. My husband feel I m reason for every bad things happening. I lost my job, career, hopes, patience and peace of mind. I want to make my self happy so that I can make my love ones happy. PLease help.

Wow, that is a whole lot of complications for one person, in one lifetime and with no resolution at the end. I am glad that you gave up on the suicide idea, but not for the reasons you mention. You need to first live for yourself and then the others i.E. You daughters and husband will benefit. Your husband?s assessment is not at all justified. There is no such thing. However, you must look at your life and see, is God a significant part of it? I don?t hear that at all. You must turn to God in all these times of good and bad. ?When God is for you, who can be against you, very true and sensible. Please do cultivate your spiritual wellbeing and you will see some wonderful affects in your life. Then you need to take life into your own hands and make things happen too. Perhaps you are not made to be a mom-at-home kind of person. If the kids are old enough, get them some nanny-care and get out into the vast world full of opportunities. You will make good in the field out there with your background. Do also take charge of your wellness: exercise, eat and sleep well, spend time in the sun every day, meet people, do something productive with your time, work at improving your married life, and bring back your hope, love, peace of mind and activate your career. Things do not happen to us, we do things to attract them to us. If you are positive, you will find positive things happen to you. As you think, so are you. Change your thoughts and you will change who you are. It is as simple as that. Your husband will not find labels and accusations to throw at you. If you let things be as they are, it will become overwhelming and everything can be lost. You end your plea rather beautifully and correctly: I want to make myself happy so that I can make my loved ones happy. Now go out there and do it. Keep me posted with all good developments.

You have to quit cold turkey because the body and mind will torture you endlessly while attempting 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. But dont be discouraged because it is not too late even now to reverse all the ill-effects of smoking. I dont 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 in 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 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 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. Heres 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.

Only by using strong will power and avoiding all situations where you feel like smoking, avoiding friends who smoke and diverting mind by reading or chewing a gum 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.

HI Lybrate user As a parent, at first you should try to divert her attention and spend quality time and give proper love and affection, tell her some real stories of great persons. Indulge her in outdoor games. Provide her some play opportunities that support different kinds of learning styles such as blocks- will develop your child's creative expression and problem solving skills. Ask about what she is learning in school. Offer her some positive reinforcement that will inspire her to keep learning or good behavior. Thanks.

Quitting smoking? a long term effort. 1. Even if you have decided to quit and stopped smoking, unexpected temptation will lure you back. You have to be firm, resolute and resist temptation. Keep recollecting health hazards and be determined. 2. The day you stop smoking, throw away balance cigarettes, ash trays and keep away from smoking friends for some time. 3. Drink lots of water to flush out nicotine and other toxins. 4. When ever you feel urge, have deep breathing exercise to release your tense feeling. 5. The urge gradually recedes and divert attention to other activities. 6. When you have strong urge remember evils of smoking. Chew gum or cinnamon piece. Don't get into a new habit.
7. Seek support of your family and friends. You win over your temptation. Good luck!

Your son doesn't have a phobia. His fears and reactions are based on real experience. His friends are laughing at him and he is feeling bullied. As a parent you have to accept and acknowledge his feelings of hurt, rejection, sadness etc. Don't try to brush aside what he is going through. He is just 8.5 years old and requires your support. Talk to him about what is happening, why are the friends laughing at him and what would he like to happen instead. You can accompany your son to the play area just to give him a secured feeling and calmly observe his interaction with his friends, if the boys are being rude, help your son to say out to them how he feels because of their behaviour. What is most important here is your son should not feel like something is wrong about himself because somebody not being nice to you doesn't mean that you are bad. If these kids are too rough and not the right kind for your son then encourage him to seek out other kids who may like to do activities that he too enjoys. Also encourage him to play on his own, this will also provide him curious moments to explore and understand his surroundings and he can learn to entertain himself all by himself. Never try to push him to go and retaliate or label him weak if he is unable to give back what other kids are doing to him. Definitely encourage him to speak up for himself about what's okay and what's not okay. Let him know that you are there for him and he is not alone. Give your love and support to your child, and help him to learn life's lessons from such challenges and don't get overwhelmed by them. As a parent, you need to feel secure and only then can you pass it on. So relax, take few deep breaths and have fun with your kid.
