Dear Dr. now a days I feel so depress due to shift work and It leads to Hari fall also. What should i do?

Master of Clinical Psychology, Post Graduate Diploma in Psychological Counselling
Psychologist, Pune
Working in shifts disturbs your body clock which ultimately affects mood levels. Many times mind and body lacks sufficient energy due to disturbed sleep cycle. You need to take care of your diet, having plenty of fruits and liquid. Get a habit of listening instrumental music before going to bed. Deep breathing for 10 minutes every day will help you to maintain the energy levels.

My wife is short tempered, some times suddenly she got irritated and started misbehaving me and my family. After 3-4 hour she become cool and behaves as usual. I observed she usually takes jerk while sleeping. Please advise me what I need to do.

There may be a lot of anger from her developmental days that has to be traced and worked upon. Ideally she needs to meet with a counselor and work on this issue. Her parents may know some things about her early childhood to throw some light. She could take them for the initial session to share their information with the counselor. The counselor will help her with anger management lessons and she will definitely feel better. She may also work out much of the anger with vigorous exercises, meditation and Yoga. You could be of great help in this regard, if you accompanied her. If her anger is too much and she is a spiritual person, she could hand over the anger to God and feel completely great. If she discovers that certain people have been responsible for this anger in her, she could learn to forgive them for her own sake. She may not forget (because that takes a long time) but with forgiveness she could move on with her life and live peacefully. Currently her acting anger out in this manner will get her into trouble with all and sundry and she will lose friends and companions. She will become a loner too, and may at some point become depressed. You have not mentioned if she is like this with her friends or at work. In that case it is clearly from her past.

General Physician,
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

Hello lybrate-user, I understood your problem completely, very nicely you described about yourself. It's not the depression, you are completely aware what you are going through, but you are not maintaining your psychological health, for that please go for psychotherapy and counseling, from the person into the field. Also try and start any of your hobbies, your talents and explore yourself, your interests. Take care and feel free to chat with me, even in personal, I will help you.

Dear Lybrate user, Anger and aggression are emotions. Anger comes when you become irritated. Irritation happens when you don't like something, or when something is repeated. As anger is an emotion, it should be vent out. You should be able to throw anger out instead of controlling it. But more perfect will be, know the frustrating situations and stop being emotional. If practiced properly, you will not get irritated at those circumstances at all. Those techniques are much easier to understand. Take care.

How to increase confidence level? My confidence level is to low to do any work like talking to ladies, while giving lecture. How to come out this problem?

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
One powerful way to build confidence is by practicing self-compassion. “Self-compassion means we have our own best interests at heart,” Welford said. “We learn to support ourselves in the same way that we would support a friend or relative.” But this might sound utterly impossible to you, especially if you’re more used to beating yourself up. Many of us treat ourselves like the enemy. We regularly judge, criticize and condemn ourselves. Fortunately, self-compassion can be learned. Here’s how. Self-Compassionate Techniques There are many exercises for practicing self-compassion. “We are all different and what is important is to find something that works for you,” Welford said. Here are several techniques to try. 1. Write a compassionate letter to yourself. When doing this exercise, Welford shares several guidelines in her book, including: Validate your feelings and the reasons you’re struggling; remember that millions of people struggle with their self-confidence; remember that everyone struggles, in general (it simply means being human); and try to be understanding, accepting and nonjudgmental. Write a supportive letter to yourself from the perspective of a compassionate person (someone who has your best interests and well-being at heart). You can start the letter with this sentence: “I am sorry that you are having a difficult time at the moment and are struggling to build your self-confidence.” Another option is to “write a letter to yourself from an older, wiser, compassionate you. What would you say to yourself now, and what would a compassionate future look like?” Welford writes. 2. Focus on your well-being. For Welford this exercise is most helpful. First, she engages in “soothing breathing,” an exercise that “aims to bring calmness and a sense of inner warmth and well-being to the mind and body.” According to Welford, it involves: finding a place that’s distraction-free; sitting in a relaxed “yet alert posture;” and closing your eyes or lowering your gaze. “Rather than counting your inhalations and exhalations, let your body find a breathing rhythm that is soothing for it.” When your mind naturally wanders, gently bring it back to your practice. Then Welford asks herself: “What can I do for myself today that will make tomorrow a better day?” For instance, instead of mindlessly watching TV, she might go for a walk or call a friend. 3. Take action. As you build your self-confidence, what are your goals? What would you like to work on? Welford has worked with individuals who’ve set such goals as: meeting new people, speaking in public, asking for help, stopping needless apologizing, expressing their emotions to others and saying yes (or no). Once you have your goals, break them down into small, specific steps in increasing difficulty. Next, brainstorm how you can prepare for the situation, such as practicing soothing breathing and writing a compassionate letter to yourself; the obstacles that might come up; and how you’ll navigate those obstacles.

Repeated washing of clothes and hands could be due to ocd. She could be going through some guilt too. Of course, divorce is a painful situationand may make a person feel helpless. She does require emotional support from people around her. Do consult a psychiatrist about her washing engagement. With medication and counselling, she will get alot of relief and help.

How to get rid rid of confusion, indecisiveness, anxiety and depression, all rolled into one, and felt at the same time? This is a constant state of mind which feels destructive.

MBBS, MD (AIIMS, Gold Medalist), Diploma in CBT (Glasgow)
Psychiatrist, Delhi
You will need professional help from a psychiatrist or psychologist properly trained in psychotherapy. They are far and few but available. It is not possible to say a few words and change the way you are. Don't take tension, just relax, do meditation etc are easy to say but not easy to execute. You must go for intensive psychotherapy. This may sound slightly different or difficult but is the truth!

Masters in Clinical Psychology, Rehabilitation Psychology

This is a case of General Anxiety of fearing for situations and problems which might not even occur in future. For relieving stress, we suggest you take Relaxation therapy like Jacobson Progressive muscle relaxation therapy. Also we use Cognitive Drill therapy which is a unique therapy used for phobias, anxiety, panic attacks (more info on jainhypnosis.com) for which you can seek session from any CDT trained therapist. The therapy helps to break this habit formation and reduces stress and anxiety.

Dear Lybrate user, Welcome to Lybrate. Tobacco is addictive. Cigarette also contains 4000+ carcinogenic chemicals other than nicotine. Nicotine and other chemicals can cause cancer of different types and areas. Throat cancer, mouth cancer, lung cancer, stomach cancer and brain problems can result. Over and above smoking may also increase the risk factor of heart attack and brain stroke. Please quit smoking. The best method is to leave it and continue with your will power. There are other methods like Nicotine Replacement therapy and pharmacotherapy combined. If you’re ready to stop smoking and willing to get the support you need, you can recover from nicotine addiction and abuse—no matter how bad the addiction or how powerless you feel. The first step in treating nicotine addiction is accepting that you have a problem. Confronting an addiction and accepting responsibility for your actions isn’t easy. But it’s a necessary step on the road to treatment and recovery. You should then consult a psychiatrist / psychologist who fill follow this treatment. 1. Detoxification using medicines. 2. Behavior modification with the help of therapies. 3. Counseling. 4. Medication to sustain and 5. Long term support. These given steps are essential for any addict to get effectively rid of smoking. Therefore, you need to stick to the treatment plan and cooperate with your psychiatrist / psychologist. Mind power building therapy, motivation therapy etc should help you doing so. Take care.

For optimal brain function eat lean proteins which you get from dals, soya, tofu, mushrooms, dairy etc. Walnuts, flaxseed and chia seeds will give you much needed omega3 fatty acids. Vit b 12 another important vitamins is found in algae like spirulina or supplements. You need to have vit d 3 supplements or getting some sun daily.

Always experiencing palpation on my heart during the mid of the night. Waking up from nightmare, throat feeling sore, feet feels on fire, stomach rumbling, and neck feels tight! Especially during a cold weather day, or after I am extremely tired during the day time. To me it's more like a heart attack, but I've even appeared in the emergency room, they told me my heart looked OK. This pattern has been repetitively occurred like a myth for four years without an accurate diagnose. All I can say is that I self- diagnose myself as Chronic fatigue syndrome for 4 years too. Could you tell me what is wrong with me (chances of anxiety is very low), I'm waiting for a more reasonable answer!

To rule whether it is from heart or not, you will need a Stress Echo and for the palpitations a Electrophysiology Study, in this we study your heart rhythm to see if you are having any abnormally fast or slow heart beat and if we find any we can treat it. A mere ECg will not be able to diagnose all this. So my advise is that instead of self diagnosing yourself get your self properly evaluated. Get your TSH, lipid profile done as well.

Hello! I'm a 19 year old guy and have started to smoke from the last 8 months. I spend a lot of money in cigarettes and therefore I want to quit! What shall I do to stop smoking?

M.A psychology
Psychologist, Lucknow
Dear lybrate-user, its good that you realised that addiction is way to monetry loss also. And at this young age these addictions are common. First try yourself to quit it. But not suddenly. As your body will crave for nicotine as it will need its dosage. So better slowly lessen your intake. If you are taking 10cigs a day. Reduce the no. To 6-7. When ever you go to buy the cig. Think once what can be the other things you can do apart from this.
