I can't forget my ex girlfriend at any cost. I always contemplate on her. Her memories gush through my mind. I have become ecstatic and almost mad without her. Pls help me.

Hi Lybrate user, through your concern I can feel your unconditional love for that girl. But its the time now that you should move on ,just ask from your sole that the girl who is not caring about you now whether she will be right person for you. May be presently your feeling is dominating so can't feel anythingbut after few days you will realise it. You love someone its really wonder feeling you should proud of yourself that you are loving someone but at the same time you must understand that for any relation whether between married or unmarried couple when both agrees then only that relation can continue ,when by anyway any one forcibly tries to continue as other partner is not intrested then it will become burden. You cannot force any one to love or for care ,if anyhow in any type of pressure someone comes then it will be for short time only ,it can be for long time only if someone comes by realising your love and importance. Lets come to your problem that you are still missing that her and it is affecting you very badly you will be normal in few days as time is the best healer. In the meantime you can follow my few suggestions don't be in contact with that girl or any common friend ,involve yourself in some activity, you can join any hobby class, be social as much as you can ,main concept is make your routine such that you don't get time to think on this topic as it will only make your life hell and you will gain nothing, if there will be any chance then it can be only by giving some space in your relation. Take care.

If she is gone for good, you have to plan ahead and think with your kids priorities utmost in mind. I can understand your grief, but many times things in life happen to our surprise and dejection. Learn to live with the situation, introspect the reasons why she left. Another life partner might be difficult for your kids to adjust. Think well and plan wisely. All the best

I am 23 years old and I am suffering from chest pain. I do not know whether it is for smoking. As I smoke a lot. What should I do to reduce the pain?

I am 23 years old and I am suffering from chest pain. I do not know whether it is for smoking. As I smoke a lot. What...
You need to get yourself examined for tobacco-related problems. You must focus on giving up the smoking more than reducing the pain. You have to quit cold turkey because the body and mind will torture you endlessly while attempting a 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 on. But don’t be discouraged because it is not too late even now to reverse all the ill-effects of smoking. I don’t 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 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 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 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 chew 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. 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. You could also join twitter2quit program and enjoy its success to give up smoking.

Does flavored hookah effects our heath? And e-hookah is good or also is bad for health? If we do hookah 2 time in 10 days then hw much it is effected?

MBBS, MD Psychiatry

Yes. Hookah is more injurious than cigarettes. E-hookah maybe less injurious but is not devoid of side-effects. The flavours may not contain tobacco but has traces of it. Also inhaling smoke is certainly bad.

So I suffer from anxiety but I find the most symptom that's making it worse is the derealsation I constantly feel like in a dream state and spaced out why does this happen?

Hi lybrate-user, anxiety is often an overwhelming condition, and when the mind is overwhelmed it can do some very unusual things. One of these is known as depersonalization, which is a symptom of anxiety that often fuels more anxiety and more depersonalization. Depersonalization is when your mind feels divorced from your own sense of self. It's when you are essentially overly self-aware to the point of feeling as though you're not in your own body. It's a consciousness that makes it feel like you're floating outside of yourself and that your actions are not your own. Depersonalization is a common symptom of panic disorder, and may occur with other anxiety disorders as well. The most likely reason that depersonalization occurs is as a coping mechanism for your brain. Your brain can get extremely stressed by your emotions. It's not just your thoughts and symptoms - it's the physical brain itself. The link between your consciousness and your thoughts is physical and mental. So most likely, the brain creates depersonalization disorder as a way of experiencing less stress. It's likely that it's shutting down certain parts of the brain and disconnecting yourself from the emotions so that it doesn't experience as much tension, despite the fact that depersonalization often creates its own anxiety. Another possible cause is simply because anxiety can lead to hyperawareness. Generally this occurs with physical issues. For example, some people feel they have a swollen tongue during an anxiety attack, but the tongue isn't actually swollen. Instead, the mind has over-focused on the feelings of the tongue, causing it to start to feel unnatural and" larger. It's possible that a similar issue is happening with consciousness, where the mind focuses so much on the way you process information that it becomes over-processed and starts to feel unreal. Finally, during anxiety attacks, neurotransmitters are often firing at a rapid rate. It's possible that these neurotransmitters are activating or de-activating parts of your mind that create this dissociative state. Ince depersonalization occurs as a result of intense anxiety, the best thing you can do is try to decrease the intensity and keep yourself from experiencing further anxiety. Keep the following in mind: be okay with depersonalization depersonalization can be very frightening, but it's not dangerous. If you start to feel it occurring, don't try to fight it. Just wait it out. Fighting it won't solve anything, and may even make your anxiety worse. You can remind yourself that depersonalization may be a scary event, but it has no short or long term consequences once it's over. Breathe efficiently depersonalization occurs at the height of anxiety attacks, and one of the issues that tends to make anxiety attacks severe is hyperventilation, which reduces blood flow to the brain and causes symptoms that may result in intense stress. Slow down your breathing dramatically. Breathe in for 5 seconds, hold for 2, breathe out for 7. Any time you feel like a panic attack may be coming, breathe slower to prevent some of the worst symptoms. Distractions for reality those with depersonalization are usually aware they're in a dreamlike state. They tend to keep everything to themselves, resulting in them withdrawing into more and more of an over-conscious and dreamlike state. Give someone a call or talk to those around you. It can be hard to admit that you have this anxiety/depersonalization problem, but the problem does not get any easier if you try to keep everything to yourself and stay inside of your own head. Go jogging jogging is a natural cure for anxiety, and also a wake up call to reality. Running can be hard when you have anxiety since rapid heartbeat tends to lead to further panic attacks, so walking is an acceptable but less effective alternative. Walking and jogging involve so many different senses that it's hard for your mind to zone out from reality. Depersonalization is not dangerous, so the key is to learn ways to reduce the extent of your panic attacks and your anxiety. No matter what, you'll still need to address your overall anxiety levels so that you decrease the likelihood of experiencing depersonalization. Consult a psychologist for its management.

Hello doctor, My question is what is bipolar I m talking tablet since 7 year is it cure completely or not.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
I don’t know when the last time you reviewed the medication with your doctor was. If it was a long time back, kindly go to the doctor and ask for a review, after describing the symptoms. Now I suspect that along with the medicine, you are not doing some therapy as well, am I right? In that case, it is very important for you to seek some counseling help for bipolar, and learn some skills and techniques to cope with life. Particularly, I would recommend some work on emotions. When you have done this for three years at least, without any symptoms or relapses, you could look at gradually weaning yourself off of the medication, with the doctor’s help and recommendation, and monitoring. The combination of medicine and therapy is very potent. You will be put on a schedule of activities, exercises, socializing, and dealing with your emotions.

Hi. I am 27 years old male single. I cannot control my anger. And whenever I get angry or falls into any kind of arguments my heart beats very fast and hand and legs starts to shiver. Please help.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
The physical reactions you describe indicate that you could be really scared but acting angry to cover it up. The fear is an energy sapping feeling, whereas the anger supplies energy! that is why many people act angry when they are really sacred. If that is true for you too, look into that and talk to a counselor, if you do not understand the mechanism. Sometimes the fear may be too much to let yourself feel it. Delve into your background with the counselor to locate that and when you deal with that your problems may just disappear. If on the other hand, the anger is genuine, trace it back to whenever from your past and deal with it. Many of us accumulate unexpressed feelings from the immediate or long past and we then become very fragile and vulnerable to even minor provocations and let out huge steam unmatched to the stimulus. This will make you an easy target by those who want to get a sick pleasure out of provoking you. You will then become a spectacle and a plaything in their hands. For this too, I recommend the help of a counselor. Exercise is an excellent outlet for the energy of the anger so that you will never loose your cool.

I can imagine how difficult life has been for you. I hope you are under medical care. Along with medicines, it will be very helpful for you to be under psychotherapy. The therapist will help you to understand why you are finding it difficult to trust other people and what is your perception about self and others. With a few modifications in behaviour and thinking patterns you would be able to cope up better.

You might be under stress. Since you are preparing for final year mbbs exams, please schedule your studies in such a way that you get enough breaks in between. Kindly try to relax your body and mind during these breaks. If possible, go for walk, jog, or some other games or exercise at least for half an hour per day. Have healthy food at regular time and have plenty of water and fruit juices. Learn deep breathing techniques, which will calm your mind. If still the music in your ears persists and if you feel that someone is whispering in your ears, then see a psychiatrist immediately. All the best.

Respected Sir, I am an Engineer, having my own business related to Agriculture and Gardening. I feel depressed most of the time, as I am on my own and have nobody to support or encourage during my business and financial depressions. My wife is a spend thrift who does't care about my financial problems. I have aged parents to take care. My only consolation is, my children are outstanding in their studies. But when I think about my future, I always feel a knot in my stomach and feel unhappy. I don't even get a sound sleep and have a very disturbed sleep. Even a slight sound makes me wide awake. I don't know what to do. What is my trouble and how to come out of this?

You need to stop worrying about losses and gains and your wife spending// You count your blessings. Do exercise/ meditation/ yoga/ Pranayama/walking in a systematic manner. Dont worry no one takes interest in you. Talk to your wife and children about it freely they will help you. Try CBT. Sleep well./eat regularly Check your health with blood tests/ Look forwards not backward/ Take courage and challenge yourself to recover.
