I am 22 years old. I don't know whether to call my problem depression, jealousy or stubborn. I am having a friend who is best friend to me. I am also a very good friend to her but I don't feel my importance in her life any more since the time she became close to one of my other friend. They use to chat at least one hour daily. And I don't know what to say after 10 min. I feel that I am not good enough to be her best friend as the other guy. I tried to break there friendship (not a good hearted deed I know) but they became even more close. I asked her not to talk to him she said-" he has not done anything wrong, is a good person and I love talking to him moreover he has not taken your place but has created his own" I REALLY UNDERSTAND THAT. And don't want to break there friendship from heart. But I was so depressed so stubborn that I taunted her for ruining my life every time we talked. Then too she tried to make every thing right. Now time has come that I loose my mental stability when ever I seen them both online at the same time and say something that ruin my friendship even more. I just can't control it. I don't want to say any thing but I feel restless I breath heavily my heart goes heavy blood pumping in my head. I want to control it please help.

You are experiencing extreme, may be pathological jealousy. Obviously you understand it is irrational and mean. But you are too overwhelmed by the emotional reaction to deal with it properly. First thing you need to do is learn how to relax your body and calm down at least a little when you feel jealous. Right now you are reacting emotionally. Your body is going in fight mode, as if there is a real physical danger to your survival and you have to act now. You can change that. Learn to control your breathing. That is the easiest. Take slow deep breaths. Practice this when you are fine and use it when you feel angry or anxious. Drink a glass of cold water. Wash your face. Next, stop following your'friend' on social media. Stop checking her activities on facebook, whatsapp, etc. Take a couple of hours'off' everyday, where you switch off your phone and computer, especially during the time when you know you will talk to her or spy on her. Talk to her in person. Chats often create more misunderstanding. You probably have feelings for her, you may want to take your friendship to another level, you probably want to date her. Tell her how you feel. Let her take her time to process and decide. Listen to her and finally, respect her decision. It is her life. If you can't take it, walk away with civility and dignity. It's ok. You will find a lot of nice people in your life if you are nice to them.

Hi mam, he is in shock he will take time to resonate with reality. Best thing right now would be to give him some time for realization. If still it persists I suggest you both to go to a psychologist for family therapy.

Consult a psychologist to deal with the deep rooted issue. You stay in past which is not a healthy place to stay in. You need to focus on present. Therefore, consult a psychologist and discuss each issue in detail. It will be confidential and prove beneficial to you. Practie Mindful Breathing The primary goal of mindful breathing is simply a calm, nonjudging awareness, allowing thoughts and feelings to come and go without getting caught up in them. Sit comfortably, with your eyes closed and your spine reasonably straight. Bring your attention to your breathing. Imagine that you have a balloon in your tummy. Every time you breathe in, the balloon inflates. Each time you breathe out, the balloon deflates. Notice the sensations in your abdomen as the balloon inflates and deflates. Your abdomen rising with the in-breath, and falling with the out-breath. Thoughts will come into your mind, and that’s okay, because that’s just what the human mind does. Simply notice those thoughts, then bring your attention back to your breathing. Likewise, you can notice sounds, physical feelings, and emotions, and again, just bring your attention back to your breathing. You don’t have to follow those thoughts or feelings, don’t judge yourself for having them, or analyse them in any way. It’s okay for the thoughts to be there. Just notice those thoughts, and let them drift on by, bringing your attention back to your breathing. Whenever you notice that your attention has drifted off and is becoming caught up in thoughts or feelings, simply note that the attention has drifted, and then gently bring the attention back to your breathing. It's okay and natural for thoughts to enter into your awareness, and for your attention to follow them. No matter how many times this happens, just keep bringing your attention back to your breathing. Consult for same.

Give up smoking

Give up smoking

If you're a smoker, quit. It's the single best thing you can do for your heart health.

Smoking is one of the main causes of coronary heart disease.

A year after giving up, your risk of a heart attack falls to about half that of a smoker.

Yes. Stammer may be caused by stress and tension. Take relaxation training from a psychologist plus you do pranayaam as taught by baba ramdev on astha channel 5.30 to 7 am. Very very effective- esp anulom-vilom, bramri and udgit are a must. You will get miraculous results!

I panic and worry over small situation that leads to instead sweating, headache and constipation. Any solution?
Good Morning ~ Worrying about small situations and unusually being worried in situations that others would usually not worry about or being worried about being worried are all signs of treatable anxiety. If that is the case then it can manifest in physical symptoms as well and this may lead to headache and constipation. Medications are useful and you will benefit from visiting with a psychiatrist as soon as possible.

Social Media - How Does It Affect Our Mental Health?

M. D. Psychiatry, Diploma in Psychological Medicine-DPM, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Noida
Social Media - How Does It Affect Our Mental Health?

Being away or oblivious to social media is synonymous to not following the herd. Social media probably is no more the latest fad; it is the given code to take a deeper look into the present age. The rewarding fact about social networking sites is their ability to transport us to people and places millions of miles away from us. This epoch dictates of overproduction and maximum utilization of labor and snatches away the boon of communication.

Below mentioned points showcase how social media addiction negatively affects our mental health:

  1. Peer Pressure- Social media use also creates the fear of missing out because you want to do what everyone else is doing. This evokes anxiety and will give rise to negative feelings and emotions, which again create mental health problems and stress and anxiety disorders
  2. Fatigue and Stress- When you are using social media, you are constantly switching from one task to another because there is just so much to do and see. This information abundance can tire out your brain, especially when it is received chaotically. Your brain needs time and room for absorbing the data and processing the information, but multitasking on social media makes your brain work overtime. This can prevent it from relaxing and it will become exhausted as it tries to deal with the barrage of information. Hence, the fatigue puts your mind under a lot of stress and you may not be able to concentrate on anything at all.
  3. Social Anxiety- Even though the whole point of social media is to allow people to stay connected with others, it doesn’t have the same satisfaction and element associated with actual human interaction, which is a crucial human need. In fact, in some ways, it is too distant and this is not a good thing for those who become dependent on social media as it can lead to social anxiety. Those who are already suffering from this problem will find it even more difficult to indulge in face-to-face interaction. Real human interaction can become extremely scary for people as it is becoming common to hide behind your computer screens and not go out at all.
  4. Distraction- Social media is just tailor-made for decreasing our productivity because you spend hours looking at everyone else’s life when you could be doing something else. This means that most of your time is spent on viewing photos, liking posts, and writing comments and these activities don’t really require the use of your intellectual abilities. They aren’t intellectual at all and distract you from activities that are such as reading, studying informational articles on the internet, etc. Your brain doesn’t get enough food for development and your intellectual abilities can decline in this way. Your brain will slow down and not be able to respond quickly in various situations.
  5. Insecurity- One of the major problems with social media is that posts typically present an idealized version of what’s going on in everyone’s life. Usually, what you see isn’t actually reality because everyone has their problems and issues. Nevertheless, you end up comparing your own life with that of others and think less of your own. If people in your newsfeed seem to be having a good time, it will make you envious and affect your mood negatively. Research has shown that widespread use of social media can demotivate people, make them aggressive and cause a decline in confidence.

So are you being adversely affected by social media? Here are some signs to look out for:

  1. Low self-esteem.
  2. Feeling low when you see other people's images and lifestyle.
  3. Envy of others people lives - wishing your life was like someone else's.
  4. Finding social media as your first and only choice of activity done for enjoyment.
  5. Not having as many face to face conversations with your relatives and friends and feeling disconnected.
  6. Being unable to do anything without feeling you need to share it online. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.

I tend to experience problems recalling memory every time I get fever. Is this normal?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Of course anyone will have a problem when they are sick with fever. In fact whenever we are sick we regress into a child like state and expect everyone else around to think for you and take decisions. It is a temporary lapse and not to be taken seriously. So take heart and when you are sick it is okay to surrender and submit yourself to the care of the nurse or parent etc. until you heal or recover.
