Dear Lybrate User, Please consult a General Practitioner at the earliest. You need to de-tox your body first, so that the effects of marijuana wear out faster. If you wish you may consult a Doctor for De-addiction medicine for your habit of smoking. Take care.

Is it true that hot / short tempered people are at high risk of getting and having high blood pressure? Or is it just temporary (at the moment that you are angry)? Can you explain the basis of this? What's the best advice to someone who has short temper. How to curb it?

Hypnotherapist, DCS, BSIC, Advanced Trainee of Transactional Analysis, Advanced Skills in Counselling
Psychologist,
Is it true that hot / short tempered people are at high risk of getting and having high blood pressure? Or is it just...
Hot temper could be one of the reasons for high bp but not the only one. With high negative emotionality like anger, stress and sadness, the circulatory, muscular, nervous and digestive system face continuous pressure to help dissipate the excess energy build up. Hence, the immune system gets compromised often and the person is open to falling ill often. 2. The person might also behave without thinking through his actions and may end up doing something that they regret later. 3. They are more susceptible to consuming drugs and alcohol as their immediate coping mechanism to relieve the stress that they are unable to face otherwise. 4. Anger held for long term can lead to rage converted into antisocial behavior leading to social adjustment issues and self esteem issues. Depression is another outcome of anger turned inwards or outwards. It is best to learn how to tame your anger and use it to articulate what you are experiencing or wanting from the other person. Assertive communication and" self and other" awareness are some of the best tools to manage anger.

Probably you are addicted to computer games. Please start playing actual physical games like football, basketball, cricket, or badminton, tennis etc. Or go for jogging or cycling, swimming etc. It will improve your physical and mental health. Restrict you computer time to only 1 hour per day. Getting addicted to computer games is very harmful. It will affect your physical health adversely. And you are already experiencing the ill effects on your mind. You are unable to differentiate between the actual and virtual world. Before it harms you further, control yourself, spend more time reading books, or pursue your hobby. Consult a counsellor if you need further assistance.

Dear , Smoking weed is a substance abuse disorder and comes under addiction disorder. You are addicted to weed and therefore, you should consult a deaddiction specialist for deaddiction treatment. You may stop it abruptly, but there is a possibility of withdrawal symptoms and relapse. Take care.

Dear, tobacco is addictive. Cigarette also contains 4000+ carcinogenic chemicals other than nicotine. The best method is to leave it and continue with your will power. There are other methods like nicotine replacement therapy and pharmacotherapy combined. But still you will need will power. For alcohol de-addiction treatment also, you should go to a rehabilitation center. You may consult a physician or deaddiction therapist or a rehabilitation facility for further advise. Take care.

Hello Doctors, just wanted to explain my Stress and Anxiety problem. I am really in a stress or rather depression which I can say. I for the past 2 months started to think that I am not well and react to even a small boil that comes on my body that makes me think I am with a STD or some major organ failure etc. I only have sex with my wife and not anyone else. BOTH ARE LOYAL TO EACH other SO I DO not HAVE TO SUSPECT HER. But this stress or thinking module made me get a TMJ problem and I am having a pop noise every time I take a hard bite or sometimes my jaw feels like it's getting locked. So I am using a night TMJ mouth appliances. Now for the past 3 days I suddenly developed pain in my left axillary part. Not sure what I did and got that pain and a slight swelling, its makes me get too worried. I tried to see if there is any boils or lump but found nothing. Is it anything serious. The pain is in the left armpit and moves slightly in front (not very much, just upto the end of my armpit hair distance I can say). What can it be and is it something I need to worry about. I seen a Ortho today but he seems to not check that part but just said it could be a strain and gave me an injection with some muscle relaxing tabs. Why am I getting so worried that something wrong is going to happen to me and my stress/anxiety level is high I suppose. Please suggest me what to do. I am also planning to join a fitness centre to reduce my weight from being 150Kgs. Thank you in advance. Will contact if any future ref needed in person.

Dear lybrate-user. Welcome to lybrate. 150 kgs at the age of 27 is too much. You have to bring it down. Regarding the pain, you have nothing to worry. As your ortho said, it could just be muscle cramp. Your problem is health anxiety. Health anxiety disorder treatment consists of cognitive behavioral therapy, life style changes, relaxation therapy and meditation. Once you learn how to manage your anxiety yourself with the help of the above treatment methods, you will be cured. The process is a bit lengthy and could take any period between one year to 2 years according to the depth of the anxiety problem and the circumstances at which the patient lives. Keep the period of treatment in mind, prepare yourself to take up the treatment and consult a psychologist online or in person. Take care.

Pre-marital Counselling - Why is it Necessary?

MBBS, MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Mumbai
Pre-marital Counselling - Why is it Necessary?

Marriage is a life-long commitment. Premarital Counseling is a therapy that serves to help couples prepare for their wedlock. It aids in ensuring that you and your partner forge a healthy and a strong relationship in the long run making way for a successful, happy and a satisfying marriage. It also helps you in spotting out the weaknesses early that can later magnify into troubles muddling up your conjugal life. The sessions are usually conducted by licensed and qualified therapists when a couple is considering marriage or are about to get into marriage.

Why is pre-marital counseling at all necessary?

  1. Matching all Aspects: Through this sort of counseling, couples are motivated to initiate conversation pertaining to marriage such as anger management, devoting time for each other, decision-making, family relationships, parenting and children, sex and affection, marital roles, ethics and beliefs, communication and finances.

  2. Communication and Conflict Resolution: Pre-marital Counseling helps partners in improving their ability to communicate with each other, setting sensible marriage goals, as well as skillfully resolving conflicts. In addition to these, premarital counseling also seeks to create a positive attitude for your conjugal life.

  3. Acclimatizing: Remember that you carry your own history, opinions, and values in a relationship and they might vary with your partner who has had an entirely different life with their own and unique experiences. Adjusting to each other as different human beings can be quite a task in itself. Marriage counseling helps in acclimatizing, accepting to the bad and good parts of both the partners.

  4. Becoming a support for each other: Most people rush into marriage to gratify their financial, social, emotional, and sexual needs, but such a mind set is always a gamble. You may hit it off greatly with you partner and then have troubles later on. Clearing out your expectations and bridging the differences prior to marriage would enhance your understanding of each other. This way you can become a source of great support for each other.

  5. Break the pattern: Both or one of you might belong to a divorced or a dysfunctional family where manipulation and fighting was the norm. Premarital Counseling can actually help you to come out of your fear and make peace with your past so that the mistakes of your parents aren’t repeated in your life.

  6. Averting divorce: Owing to the modern lifestyle, the chances of divorce are rising with each passing day. Therefore, early intervention is indeed the need of the hour. Premarital counseling can help you pinpoint areas of major concern and work to resolve them or work around them to avoid issues which may balloon and end up in a worst case scenario for a marriage, which is divorce.

If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a specilized psychologist and ask a free question.

I always thinks of what others think of me and I lose my peace of mind due to this, I can not sleep at night thinking...
Everyone wants to be liked and accepted, but many of us spend too much time and energy worrying about what other people think. You might not even realize you're doing it, but these kinds of mental gymnastics are unhealthy and stressful, making us feel unworthy and removing our attention from the present moment. Here are four steps to help you stop worrying about what other people think, designed to help you maintain healthier and happier relationships with yourself and others. 1. Understand why you care. In order to break the cycle, it's important to understand where the energy is coming from. We've been socialized by a culture that sets norms for our belongingness. From birth, we're taught we should act a certain way, dress a certain way, buy certain products, and adhere to certain ideologies to be liked and accepted. Social media brings the popularity contest to a whole new level, where how many friends we have, and how much they" like" us, is now publicly broadcast and recorded. We are stressed and exhausted trying to manage our real and online personas to make sure that people continue to like and accept us. Many of us have spent our whole lives in this cycle, believing that a certain set of actions would bring us acceptance, only to repeatedly find that this is not the case. This is a form of social conditioning that we must now give ourselves permission to release! 2. Learn this mantra: What Other People Think About Me Is None of My Business! The root of the problem with caring about what people think about you is that you're attaching yourself to an outcome that you have absolutely no control over. That’s right, you have NO CONTROL over what people say, do and think about you! You can have the best intentions, or you can do something ridiculous: It doesn’t matter. You do not control the way people will respond, just as they do not control the way you respond to them. The belief that you have any ownership of or control over people’s opinions about you comes from a place of ego. The reality is that what other people think about you is none of your business! Take a moment and begin to process and accept this perspective. See how the mantra makes you feel, and note the resistance you might feel from your ego. This is normal. (In fact, with all this time spent worrying and managing expectations, this mantra can feel downright strange at first!) 3. Direct the energy to something positive. This new perspective frees up an immense amount of time and energy to live in the NOW and experience your authentic flow. It also breaks the cycle of conditioning that if you could only do X, say Y, and buy Z, people would like and accept you. Deep inside we know that true acceptance comes from within. So instead of caring so much if someone might be talking about you behind your back. Breathe, repeat your mantra, and then direct the excess energy towards something positive, like following your passion and doing what you love! And if you don’t know what you're passionate about, go and find out! Try a creative new activity, such making art, dancing, playing music, building something, or frolicking outside. You'll be amazed at how happy and free you feel when you spend time doing what you love instead of worrying about what other people think! 4. Practice daily self-love and acceptance. When you're living and creating from a place of genuine love and acceptance, you will know that what other people do, say, and think about you really has nothing to do with you and everything to do with them. If you don’t like what they have to say about you, you can walk away knowing you are being true to yourself. A regular, daily practice of self-love and self-acceptance is key for releasing attachment to outcomes and maintaining happy, healthy relationships. For many people, this journey begins with meditation, breath-work, yoga, eating healthy, spending time in nature, and creating art. No matter what you do, make sure to do something that reminds you how much you love yourself every day. As you feel more self-love and self-acceptance, you will attract more of it into your space. This is a life-long mission, not an instant transformation that happens overnight, so please be kind and forgive yourself if you fall back into the cycle of worrying about what other people think. If you find yourself feeling attached to their opinions of you, just remember that they, like you, are walking a long journey of internal healing and growth, and that their attitudes are unique and personal to them. And truly none of your business! Hope this suggestion would help you. Regards,
