My husband gets angry a lot. He can't control it then later he feels sorry about it. While getting angry, he bites his lips, hurts himself, shouts a lot. What to do to control his anger?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

He should not control his anger: he needs to control his actions when he angry. None of the feelings are to be controlled. They are to be expressed appropriately and given total catharsis. If not, it will find an organ in the body and bring about its malfunction to total dysfunction. Take him to a counselor and let him learn about anger management and about emotions. If he is not able to explain the anger or its provocation, then there could be childhood influences that have to looked into. When he turns his anger inwards, he will tend to hurt himself. Over a period of time this could lead to worse outcomes and may also become difficult to handle.

Dear lybrate-user, thanks for the question. I went through the details. Alcoholic consumption is injurious to health in many aspects. Therefore, you should completely quit it. The best method is to quit it now and sustain it with will power. Even if you take medicines, without will power, the habbit may relapse. Therefore will power is the key. Mind power building therapy and motivation therapy could help you overcome the urges. I hope you are satisfied with my answer.

If you are an occasional smoker - with public messages, health awareness programs and your own doctors advice, you can quit. If you are a regular smoker, motivational therapy with a trained psychotherapist or a psychiatrist and enormous will power will help you quit. If you are a diseased smoker, consult a de addiction psychiatrist at the earliest. He may give you anti-smoking medications and de addiction treatment.

Hello Doctor,
I am 28 yr, F.
How to get rid of anxiety and nervousness and be at peace naturally? Please guide me,
You have not been dealing with your fears for a long time, perhaps. All unexpressed feelings will find some other way of expressing itself in the body. These will lead to psychological problems of various kinds. You need to be trained in dealing with emotions and retain it as an ongoing process in life. Meet a counselor and get some guidance in this regard. In the meantime, please follow an exercise regiment, eat well and keep good company. Make your last meal, as far as possible, a pure carbohydrate meal. Eat early and make it a small meal too. Avoid all foods that cause flatulence. Sleep on your left ear most of the night. Every time you feel fear talk to someone about it. Do some deep breathing, with your left nostril shut, and you will immediately calm down. If it gets too much, place your index finger on your shut lips and puff up your cheeks tightly with air and hold it for some time. The back pressure of the air will press the vagus nerve at the rear of the throat and immediately reduce the heart rate to calm you down. If it is worse, please visit a counselor and if that person advises then meet with a psychiatrist too. If this is a recent phenomenon, you could just do all of the recommendations suggested below too. If the fear is more from childhood, you will need to work with a counselor. The counselor will help you see what are the things frightening you, and why now. Sometimes a recent event may have triggered what was lurking under the surface for a long time. That too must be identified and dealt with. In that case you may be taking normal fear and converting it into abnormal fear like anxiety and so on. Any way 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 anxiety 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 anxiety 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.

Am a chain smoker. Now am controlled it. But daily one or two cigarettes smoking continuous. What the way to am stopping. If any nikodin flavour chocolates available in store.

Even one or two cigarettes are harmful. Nicotine tabs are available but may not be in flavors you desire. Nicotine chewing gums are also there. 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. 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 chewing gum or 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.

Poor memory could be due to various reasons: bad learning habits, easily distracted, low attention span, stress, not understanding the material properly, too many other things happening in your life, boredom, too much responsibility, pressure, difficulty level may be beyond your grasping capacity, etc. There are a few memory enhancers that help, that can be learned. I have a few exercises that help, if followed meticulously. Contact me, if you need them.

You are not psycho. You are very sensitive type of person. From child hood onwards you have some internal frustrated thoughts. That you have unable to express in a proper manner. You are suffering from emotional instability. Emotions are not expressed in a proper manner. You need emotional therapy. Emotions are also fluctuated from time to time. So better to consult psychologist for emotion relaxation therapy and cognitive behaviour therapy. Some sessions after you feel normal. Do not think I am psycho etc. It is simple behavioural disorder it can be cured is some days. Better to consult good psychologist. Ok best of luck.

Dear client as you mentioned in your query you are watching tv and eating. You're not interested in any other work, you are feeling depressed, hopeless, helpless. My first advise for you is to live your life fully, there are many good things in this world, life is so beautiful, enjoy it fully, spend your time with family members and friends make new friends, join any personality development classes, or any new learning classes in which you are interested, avoid watching tv alone. Watch some entertainment programs along with family members, fix a limited time for tv. Practice meditation do physical exercise/ activities regularly then you will understand how many things you're missed. Don't be upset/ disappointed at least now enjoy your life fully. All the best.

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. These feelings may cause physical symptoms, such as a racing heart 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 tips to overcome and manage your anxiety. Take care.

You need to be very clear about what you are doing and why you are doing it, whether it is your career or marriage. You need to be clear about what you expect from your marriage and your spouse. At the same time be clear about what responsibilities you would like to shoulder after marriage. Your life will change a lot after marriage and you will be having new role/s. Please check with yourself, what are those responsibilities that you are afraid of, and what makes it so scary for you? Then discuss it with someone who can help you. Also observe, how others are managing similar challenges. Set your own limits. Marriage is" interdependence". Any relations is necessarily" Give and Take" so" give" and" receive" gracefully. Try to understand how you have been shouldering responsibility in life, till now and have faith in yourself for the same. If you have self respect, you will find yourself worthy of any role and responsibility. It is advisable to talk to your fiancé about his expectations from you after marriage and you also can discuss what you would expect from him as your husband. Open communication, realistic expectations from others and self, setting goals and making sincere efforts to achieve them will make you more confident about yourself and you will feel worthy of any role/responsibility. All the best.

Dear lybrate user, it appears that you are very sad, frustrated and feeling hopeless for something in your life. Suicide is not the solution to any problems in life. If you try to commit suicide and if you do not succeed you will be in greater trouble. If you succeed, you will create problems for your loved ones who will be left behind. Please consult a counsellor who will help you in this difficult situation. Presently, you are not able to think rationally. The counsellor will give you a different perspective about your life and also will help you to explore a number of options, so that you can move ahead in life. Take care.
