Please read this & suggest me if this is a mental problem & if I need to go to a psychiatrist. Basically I am very hard working in daily work or physical work. But when I pick a book to study, I become very impatient, I start thinking about result or completing the topic or book fast & then make a plan or time table but I can't concentrate on study for long time. I feel some fear & tickle as -' If I couldn't do so then?' & ultimately I leave the study for many days to hide my face from that fear, tickle & impatience.

This depicts your nature. Although you are hard working but you are not a good finisher as you fumble when the task is about to complete due to anxiety going on in your mind. Actually you have a fluctuating mind and a number of things are going on simultaneously in your mind and this distracts your mind. So it is not a psychiatric problem but your problem is lack of concentration of mind and for that I will recommend you a homoeopathic medicine along with 10 minutes bramari pranayam twice daily so that you can control your mind so that it works in a synchronised way along with your body.

Hello lybrate-user, it seems your are doing a lot of work. Working time also is more. Seems like you don't get much time for your self. Work load seems to be more than you can handle. Coming back to anger management. People don't know what you are going through. And it's not their fault that you are working so much. You have to take care of your self and your health. Anger mostly arises from some deficiency of and not others. You have to learn to handle stuff and people. Regarding your bp you should definitely visit a doctor and get it checked. The body has the tendency to adjust to your stress. But if your stress level increase to such a level that the body cannot adjust anymore more and starts giving signals in the from of bp, diabetes, headaches, neck pain, shoulder pain, stiffness etc. That the time one should understand that it's time to change our lifestyle and eventually our thoughts. Tc.

Hello lybrate-user a lot of" lifestyle diseases" as we term it today are caused due to stress. If you analyze, most of your health issues will be due to stress. The first way to eliminate stress would be: to meditate, spend some time with yourself and work out the source of the stress. Spend time indulging in a favourite hobby like walking, reading or swimming, whatever helps you relax your mind. The more your mind is relaxed, the joint pain will go away. Avoid highly spiced and oily food. It is advisable to eat a whole food plant based diet rich in greens, beans and legumes. Start by adding healthy foods to your diet, and slowly healthy foods will replace the unhealthy ones. Adding flax seeds (alsi) to your diet is a good option even where pain in knees is concerned as it is rich in omega-3 fatty acids, dry roast the seeds, grind to a fine powder and consume. Add leafy greens to get optimal nutrition. For your joint pain, a homoeopathic biochemic will greatly help, you can take: calcarea fluorica 6x, 4 tablets, 3 times a day in half a cup of warm water.

There is no harm in masturabation and is a good sex drive release. You can restart if you feel as stopping this normal diversion of mind could make depression.

I am 40yrs old female, married, my daughter who was in 12th got failed, am so down. She is rewriting her exam am scared will she do it better. I don't get sleep at night. I don't know what to do?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

It seems like your daughter? s failure is affecting you more than your daughter. You may inadvertently pass on your nervousness to her and make it worse. You must give her hope and therefore you must have more faith and trust in her abilities. You must help her identify what went wrong in her last attempt and correct those errors this time around. Her study methods may be in question. If so, explore better methods even now. If she is of a nervous disposition, she is likely to mess it up again. Help her with some deep breathing and yoga exercises to calm her down. Teach her how to handle her feelings, especially that of fear, and she will do a lot better. Never fault a child for trying and being responsible. Make her and you understand that failure is a stepping-stone to success. Every great man has had his ups and downs but they picked themselves up and did better when down. Even if she has to repeat her class, it is good for her, if she has learned her lessons. Get her tutoring for the weak subjects and whatever other support she needs. A multivitamin and multi-mineral along with a calcium tablet daily will help her to deal with stress well. Get your husband involved too, especially if he is of a calmer disposition. My take on education: if her character is good, then that is all that matters. Acknowledge that about her: that is the best result one should look for.

Dear lybrate user. Welcome to lybrate. I can understand. Loosing someone near and dear is called grief and depression related to grief is pretty normal. But this sort of depression does not stay for long. This depression gets cleared within a span of some weeks. The best option for you is to undergo counseling and depression related therapy. Take care.

The word depressed is a common everyday word. People might say" i'm depressed" when in fact they mean" i'm fed up because i've had a row, or failed an exam, or lost my job" etc. These ups and downs of life are common and normal. Most people recover quite quickly. With true depression, you have a low mood and other symptoms each day for at least two weeks The common symptoms are (few might be present in a person with depression) Feelings of sadness, tearfulness, emptiness or hopelessness Angry outbursts, irritability or frustration, even over small matters Loss of interest or pleasure in most or all normal activities, such as sex, hobbies or sports Sleep disturbances, including insomnia or sleeping too much Tiredness and lack of energy, so even small tasks take extra effort Changes in appetite — often reduced appetite and weight loss, but increased cravings for food and weight gain in some people Anxiety, agitation or restlessness Slowed thinking, speaking or body movements Feelings of worthlessness or guilt, fixating on past failures or blaming yourself for things that aren't your responsibility Trouble thinking, concentrating, making decisions and remembering things Frequent or recurrent thoughts of death, suicidal thoughts, suicide attempts or suicide Unexplained physical problems, such as back pain or headaches consult a psychiatrist and get evaluated. As your depression is severe, due to suicidal idea. All the best.

MBBS

Nicotine patch remains in direct contact with the skin of the person who wants to quit smoking and nicotine is absorbed slowly into the bloodstream and the person does not crave to smoke and thus lungs are saved.

You may be depressed. You must go and meet with a counselor immediately and if that person advises that you meet with a doctor you must do so and cooperate to your utmost. Please visit these professionals along with your parents. In the meantime please do the following sincerely because you could resolve the problem better with good cooperation: Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber, nuts, avocado, exercise regularly, eat dark chocolate, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. I suggest you do the opposite of what this depression makes you feel like doing (actually, not doing): you will need to fight this condition. You must become active; stay upright during the daylight time; meet people; never sleep during the day, wake up by 6 am every day, play some active games, especially contact games, do physical exercises, talk to people and join some social clubs, attend Yoga classes etc. Watch sitcoms on TV or comedies and cheer yourself up. Go for excursions in groups, for outings, camps, conferences, and religious conventions. Get a pet dog and spend time training it, exercising it and relating to it. Expose yourself to some sunlight every day, at least, 30 minutes but not in the scorching heat. Whatever happens, please incorporate these three important adaptations in your life: always be responsible, be respectful, and be functional. If you did these three, lots of things will go well in life. Please pray and have faith in God to alleviate your sufferings. Don’t wait for others to help. Use your own motivation, which might be at its lowest, but persevere and win this battle. Above all to be really happy, you need to live in love and for love. Learn all about emotions and how to handle them and that will get you out of the depression rather easily and quickly. A counselor is there only to facilitate you, all the hard word must come from you, and your cooperation with that person is very critical for your success. Be positive every day and learn to be contented with what you have. Do some left brain exercises: it is the happy brain. Here are a few suggestions: shut your left nostril and breathe, move your eyes from right to left and vice versa for at least half a minute at a time, and do callisthenic exercises with some form of counting, regularly. Whatever happens please cooperate with the therapy and do not discontinue until the condition is completely resolved.

Hi, I am 56 year old man I have a problem of short temper I get angry very often. I go restless when every any person doesn't do as I say. What should I do for this. I have tried meditation but its not working. Tell me what to do.?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

Well, it sounds like you have control issues. Control issues normally stem from fear. In that case, you are escalating anger over the fear to enforce the control. So, ideally, you need to work with a counselor on what the fear is all about and where it originated. Once you take care of this you will not need to control and therefore you will not act angrily or with a short fuse. When you cover up the fear with anger, nobody will be aware of your fear and they will react to your anger, which is not the real feeling. So what happens to the fear? It gets buried under and will continue to haunt you later, perhaps more vehemently. I don?t know how long this has been going on but it is time to bring a check to it and reveal your fear and deal with it appropriately.

You are probably going through a depression. When you have the desire to be happy, you must cling on to that thought because the brain will produce neurotransmitters to promote that feeling. I know it is difficult to hold on to that thought but it is cardinal to your well being. Without concentration the mind goes here, there and everywhere, jumping like a monkey from branch to branch, idea to idea. When there is a natural concentration, we can control our mind and there is peace. This one-pointed concentration on a thought, holding it for as long as we like, gradually collects strength in the mind and in the self. A strong mind is a mind that is peaceful, stable, satisfied and can remain in the deeper meaning of a thought. There is no waste caused by over-thinking, or the high speed of thought: These are the two greatest diseases of the mind these days, which is why there is so much stress and mental breakdown. You can follow these simple rules: Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber, nuts, avocado, exercise regularly, eat dark chocolate, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. I suggest you do the opposite of what this depression makes you feel like doing (actually, not doing): you will need to fight this condition. You must become active; stay upright during the daylight time; meet people; never sleep during the day, wake up by 6 am every day, play some active games, especially contact games, do physical exercises, talk to people and join some social clubs, eat more of proteins, nuts, fruits, and vegetables, attend Yoga classes etc. Watch sitcoms on TV or comedies and cheer yourself up. Go for excursions in groups, for outings, camps, conferences, and religious conventions. Get a pet dog and spend time training it, exercising it and relating to it. Expose yourself to some sunlight every day, at least 30 minutes but not in the scotching heat. Whatever happens, please incorporate these three important adaptations in your life: always be responsible, be respectful, and be functional. If you did these three, lots of things will go well in life. Please pray and have faith in God to alleviate your sufferings. Don’t wait for others to help. Use your own motivation, which might be at its lowest, but persevere and win this battle. Above all to be really happy, you need to live in love and for love: find someone to love and to love you back. A counselor is there only to facilitate you (if you need one, that is), all the hard word must come from you, and your cooperation with that person is very critical for your success. Be positive everyday and learn to be contended with what you have. Do some left brain exercises: it is the happy brain. Here are a few suggestions: shut your left nostril and breathe, move your eyes from right to left and vice versa for at least half a minute at a time, and do callisthenic exercises with some form of counting, regularly.

My father drinks too much. I want him to quit drinking but he couldn't. He want to quit but he can't. He is addicted to alchohol. What should I do. Someone suggested me to give him dyzone tablets. But I didn't give him without any medical suggestion of doctor. What my father should do to quit drinking.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Do not ever give your father medication of which you know nothing about. Even if you have any knowledge, you are not the competent authority to administer medication unless prescribed. I hope I have made myself very clear. It is highly dangerous and can be life threatening too. If your father has a desire to quit drinking, that is a good starting point. In that case do the following: Under such circumstances it is best that you admit him into a de-addiction center and let him stay there for at least 6 months and after that attend counseling with a professional. There are medicines that help with the drinking just to ease the initial craving and to act as an antabuse i.e. he will have a serious reaction, if he consumes even a small quantity of alcohol or alcohol based substances. It has to be carefully monitored to see that he not only consumes the medication but is also avoiding alcohol. Ultimately, it is his will power and the support that he receives from the medical fraternity and his close and dear ones. He must also learn to substitute and deal with the oral need, a rigid value system, the script issue, and of course take a look at all the genetic factors to plan a strategy not to get into what is called ‘cross addictions’ i.e. another form of addiction that may appear alright but is in fact as bad as the primary addiction. The center or hospital and the counselor will advise and guide him on several measures and precautions he will need to take to stay with his resolve. Even after the rehabilitation he must attend AA meetings and continue this support for a long time. The family will also need to attend some sessions and go for Al-anon meetings for their co-dependency issues. He cannot be treated in isolation because the family has gotten used to his drinking and have made some unhealthy adaptations to somehow cope. The children (including you) will also have to attend meetings to work out their issues because of the father’s habit. In fact, they are all suffering from the Adult Children Of Alcoholics Syndrome (ACOAs), which in effect means that they are genetically predisposed to alcoholism or can have cross addiction problems and that they will have similar traits of the abusing alcoholic but in a milder form. There are special support groups for them all over the world. Should they touch or indulge in alcohol or any addictive substances or behaviors, they could also become full-fledged addicts themselves. Make a serious plan with your mother and the children and whoever else’s support he can get and act on it fast.
