Recently I was on some meds for my OCD and high anxiety. Did not help but made me gain absurd 10 kgs in just 2 months. Now it's been another 3 months after I stopped them. Been actively working out cardio and on strict diet but still not been able to remove those extra kgs especially man boobs. Is there any fat burner to assist in losing weight without altering my high anxiety condition? PS I'm not on any meds right now. T hanks.

Most depressions also have anxiety. It is not surprising that you are suspicious of your husband but unless it is well-founded, you are disturbing your relationship and your own mental peace. This can make your depression worse. I recommend you meet with a counselor and talk such matters out to get a proper reality orientation. In the meantime please do the following sincerely because you could resolve the problem better with good cooperation: Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber, nuts, avocado, exercise regularly, eat dark chocolate, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. I suggest you do the opposite of what this depression makes you feel like doing (actually, not doing): you will need to fight this condition. You must become active; stay upright during the daylight time; meet people; never sleep during the day, wake up by 6 am every day, play some active games, especially contact games, do physical exercises, talk to people and join some social clubs, attend Yoga classes etc. Watch sitcoms on TV or comedies and cheer yourself up. Go for excursions in groups, for outings, camps, conferences, and religious conventions. Get a pet dog and spend time training it, exercising it and relating to it. Expose yourself to some sunlight every day, at least, 30 minutes but not in the scorching heat. Whatever happens, please incorporate these three important adaptations in your life: always be responsible, be respectful, and be functional. If you did these three, lots of things will go well in life. Please pray and have faith in God to alleviate your sufferings. Don’t wait for others to help. Use your own motivation, which might be at its lowest, but persevere and win this battle. Above all to be really happy, you need to live in love and for love. Learn all about emotions and how to handle them and that will get you out of the depression rather easily and quickly. A counselor is there only to facilitate you, all the hard word must come from you, and your cooperation with that person is very critical for your success. Be positive every day and learn to be contented with what you have. Do some left brain exercises: it is the happy brain. Here are a few suggestions: shut your left nostril and breathe, move your eyes from right to left and vice versa for at least half a minute at a time, and do callisthenic exercises with some form of counting, regularly. Whatever happens please cooperate with the therapy and do not discontinue until the condition is completely resolved.

Hi, as you mentioned these symptoms are of depression. In depression such things happens like mood remains low, interest in day to day activities decreases, irritability, anger outburst, pessimistic thought about future, suicidal ideation, appetite and sleep disturbed. If all such happens continuously for a minimum of 2 week then please visit a psychiatrist. You need treatment for that and by doing so you definitely get help. Depression is a treatable condition it will improve on medication. So do not wast your time and plan to visit a psychiatrist. Best of luck.

Hello, How long can a person of an age 28 can live if he is consuming 200 ml of alcohol daily, neglecting to drink once in a week?

There is no way anyone can calculate your longevity on the basis of your alcohol consumption alone. There are so many other factors to be considered and so you are fooling yourself by statistics. You must also factor in that at this rate of consumption you will gradually develop tolerance and dependence on alcohol so that you will'need' larger quantities to attain the same pleasure. You are well advised to quit from the regular use forthwith.

STOP SMOKING 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 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.

If it is Pan Parag and gutkha products, they are both very dangerous. I am so glad that your intention is to quit these habits. There are no guarantees about stopping one’s addiction. But that does not mean we should not keep at it, over and over again until we succeed. Both are tobacco products and therefore, have addictive components to them. It may feel like you can’t stop but that it really not true. If you do not try, then it will never happen. You must try and try again until you succeed. The problem with addiction is that you have two products which are both conditioned to various events in your daily life and as such it will make it difficult but not impossible. You could work with an addiction counselor to help you process the rehabilitation. It is important to first find out about the ill-effects of tobacco use to have a reason that alarms you about continuing in the habit. The information is really scary and true. The nicotine in tobacco 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 consuming any tobacco related items with immediate effect. Nicotine also reduces the erectile capacity of your penis to hamper satisfying sex. You should start vigorous exercises, gradually increasing it over a period of time. You need to 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 chewing gum or nicotine patches, for a little while until the tobacco drive reduces, substantially. Both will help but I am inclined to favor the gum because it is an oral habit and it will occupy the mouth just as though you were still chewing tobacco. When you want it will be easier to give up the gum. Keep yourself occupied or engaged with interesting activities during the times when it is most tempting. Keep the company of non-users for some time i. E. At least for the first 21 days. Above all announce it to everyone that you have quit consuming Pan. 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.

Sometimes I loose control of myself and get very aggressive. I feel insanely angry and at the same time I've this urge to just shut all the thoughts and not let the situation go out of hands. In this time I tend to do stuff that I regret later or at times instantly. I end up hurting the people I care about the most. Also sometimes it happens and I don't remember any of it. It even the reason for which it happened . Tired of feeling guilty and hopeless in a way for not being able to help it.

The fact that you remember being unnecessarily aggressive or angry at someone against your will suggests that you have an issue of impulse control. Your submission that you feel guilty of your actions just reiterates the same thing. Most of the times it is untreated and long standing stress and anxiety which leads to such problems but it would be more appropriate if you conuslt a psychiatrist in your vicinity for a complete evaluation and management. You may consult me for any further queries or online assistance for the same.

As per your description of your situation, it shows that you have anxiety from traveling in train in night. This situation of yours may be because of that you associated some fear with traveling in night and it has become anxiety of traveling in night. Before planning for next journey, start one exercise at your home daily: when you go on bed for sleeping, before sleeping after closing eyes visualize whole situation in which you have fear, while you are lying on bed. In this process, you may have fear again but immediately stop your visualization, start deep breathing for approx five minutes and after deep breathing, start again visualization that situation, if you face fear again, go for deep breathing. Practice this whole process every day for at least ten minutes. I hope, you will get relief.

Dear Mary. Panic attacks are always due to underlying anxiety disorder. Therefore treatment is given to anxiety disorders and thereby panic attacks are cleared. If you take treatment for anxiety disorder, you don't have to worry about panic attacks. Anxiety disorders are a category of mental disorders characterized by feelings of anxiety and fear, where anxiety is a worry about future events and fear is a reaction to current events. When a person fears about something now (which may or may not happen in the future) and if he do it repeatedly, it is called anxiety disorder. These fear provoking feelings are called anxiety and it may cause variety of physical symptoms, such as a racing heart, restlessness, helplessness and shakiness. There are a number of anxiety disorders: including generalized anxiety disorder, a specific phobia, social anxiety disorder, separation anxiety disorder, agoraphobia, and panic disorder among others. While each has its own characteristics and symptoms, they all include symptoms of anxiety. I need to know more about your anxiety so that I will be able to diagnose it properly and provide you counseling and psychotherapy to overcome and manage your anxiety. Take care.

We are parents to a 14 year old daughter and 11 year old son. I am in a transferable job and the family moves with me. Our daughter started her periods when she was 9.5 years.It was the time that she stated being physically abusive towards her mother without any reason or remorse. In the last 3-4 years her behavior towards her parents, sibling has worsened. In our last relocation 3 years back, she had problems in making friends at school for which we sought professional counselling, got her enrolled in sports and things were a little better for a few days.We also took homeopathic treatment to treat the aggression in her. One day we learnt that she has infatuation for a 17 year old boy at the sports academy. The boy was suggesting sexual advances towards her as we could gather from her personal diary. We could intervene and resolve the issue. We have also been meeting the school counseller off and on. During this time she was making use of the mobile phone which we had kept for use at home ( in place for the regular landline). Last year she pestered and forced her to buy her a smartphone.Our problems aggravated manifold after we bought the smartphone. Her attention towards her studies nosedived despite taking extra tuitions. She would throw her clothes, towels etc on floor after use and listen to music on the cell all the time.Her sleep wake cycle is also abnormal. She would get up at 12 PM on holidays. For last 6 months she is friends with a 17 year old boy of her school and has been chatting with him on FB/whattsapp. The boy is making sexual advances towards her while in the school( as we could understand from her phone). We were called one day in the school to inform that she has been bunking her classes. All this while we have been very supportive /sympathetic towards our child. The teachers have suggested that we take the smartphone back from her. But her behavior is so violent and abnormal that we do not know to head in which direction.

You have not only described the problem well but most of what you have done has been good so far. Let me explain what your child is going through. She has entered adolescence earlier by nearly 4 years. An unprepared child has to face the onset of puberty at a much earlier time and further she may not have had all her childhood milestones met adequately because her childhood has been cramped by those 4 years. Secondly, there will be a spurt in the production of the male sex hormone, testosterone, which has a duration of two years. Due to this chemical alone there are three identified features that present itself over which she has no control: she will be sexually active, aggressive and rebellious, and she will have acne and pimple problems. Then if she has unresolved childhood issues, they will compound the situation and fuel her uncontrolled behavior. Please remember that she herself may not be aware of all this. Now what to do? You parents need to become her best friend i.E. You must always ally with her and find the path of least resistance. Communication must always be open and favorable. The moment she hides things and does not communicate with you or you withdraw it, there is serious danger. Avoid all types of confrontations and discus your concerns with her. Indulge in her and make home a beautiful place for her to want to be in. Sports and games will expend a lot of the aggression and energy. Go with her and encourage her to participate. Yes, in all this she will get into relationships, which is not the crime. It would be grave failure on your part as parents to have not prepared her with sex education and strong morals that she could exercise, if they were present. Boys are also driven by these hormones and will want sex and put her under pressure to give sex in exchange for the friendship. You have to handle this very carefully, gently and always with abundant love. Some practical things to do: ask the teacher to confiscate the Smartphone. It is better if the school acts on this, than if you did ? again remember to follow the path of least resistance with her from your side. Involve the counselor as much as possible without disgracing her. Now this is very important: never give her anything without there being some negotiations ? barter with her, you give her something in return for some compliance from her. If you can befriend her close companions, especially her peers, you can reach her through them to influence her positively but it has to be done with strict confidence. On holidays let her sleep late, no harm in that. If she is going through a spurt in her growth hormone, she will feel unduly exhausted. Keep in touch with her school authorities always. Also remember that her lack of control over her behavior is a sign that she has a lot of impulses to contend with. I am alluding to this so that you should never provoke inadvertently that she impulsively does something serious to her life just to spite you! Your frequent transfers don?t help much either but then what can be done, if your work is shaped like that! The female child needs and wants a lot of attention from the male parent. Please be there for her at all times and let her know that too.
