Hello doctor, I have a friend. She is a very good girl. She is caring, helpful, she never say no to anyone. She has been a best friend and a best daughter. But every time she trust people they ditch her. People always be mean to her. They all around her just want their work to be done and bitch about her at her back. Plus she has been facing family problems since her childhood, like fight between her parents, financial problems, etc. She has been a sacrificing girl. But now from few days she has been very much depressed, she don't even talk to her parents properly, she just keep quiet, she don't smile and be happy like before. Please do advice something for her. She is giving her exams right now. She is mentally disturbed.

It is good that your concern over your friend's good character and empathy towards her problems. But, the problems you present here are only due to lack of assertiveness, low self confidence and poor self-esteem on your friend's side. Assertiveness means being able to stand up for one's own rights with positive attitdue and without showing aggressiveness. Luckily she has a good friend like you who can take her to a psychological counselor to get training to improve these kinds of skills. Other family problems will automatically be well managed by her if she is more assertive with self-confident.

Hello doctor! I have headache due to my future with a girl. And I always think about her. I don't know how to overcome. please suggest me.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You may have a headache due to other reasons. If it is truly due to the girl friend, then you must be angry about something. Are you even aware that you are angry with her or around the relationship? if you are in love you will always think about her! this is quite normal. If you are not functional and do not do whatever you are supposed to do normally, then this relationship is getting the better of you. Now that is not a good thing. A relationship should bring the best out of you. So there may be something wrong: like she does not love you but you do; or you are the only one loving her but she does not even know it! if it is any of these then it is not a relationship. It should be a two-way thing. You cannot and should not force a girl into a relationship. If I am wrong please get back to me with more details.

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.

Hi, if you really want to cure your anxiety forever, you need to have a long term treatment plan that takes into consideration your anxiety symptoms, what you're suffering from, how badly you're suffering, and your specific anxiety disorder. First and foremost, don't let your anxiety cause you to make poor decisions about anxiety treatments. The reality is that most" rapid" treatments don't work. You'll find many people that claim that they have an extract or a medicine that can cure your anxiety immediately, and unfortunately it's never the case - it's people taking advantage of you in your time of need, and hoping the placebo effect will be enough to cure your anxiety. Even prescription medications have a" false" component. Prescription medicines can give you some help with anxiety, but that help is only temporary, and your mind and body can actually become dependent on these medications. As soon as you stop taking them, your anxiety may not only come back - it could even be worse than before. Curing your anxiety is a process - it's a process that can happen, for everyone, but those that hope they can get instant anxiety help are going to be disappointed, and possibly taken advantage of. Your symptoms define your anxiety if you really want to cure your anxiety forever, you need to have a long term treatment plan that takes into consideration your anxiety symptoms, what you're suffering from, how badly you're suffering, and your specific anxiety disorder. Imately effective treatment. Setting up a long term plan - making realistic goalsi possible to reduce your anxiety every day. There are countless tips to learn to manage it. But you need to do two things: you need to make sure that you're giving yourself realistic goals. You need to make it a long term plan. You can get anxiety help now - help that will genuinely reduce your experience with anxiety. But it will only reduce it so much. You'll still need to keep at it, and commit to it in a way that will guarantee short and long term results. Realistic goals will ensure that you don't give up. You're bound to have setbacks, because life isn't stress free. A long term plan will also make sure that you keep at it - you'll not only have something to do next, you'll also know what to do next. For example, let's look at several strategies you can do right now that will reduce your anxiety: start jogging jogging isn't just for your health. Jogging releases endorphins, which are neurotransmitters that improve mood. It also tires muscles, and there is evidence that extra energy in muscles becomes converted to a feeling of anxiety. Sleep better getting more sleep will fight anxiety right away. Far too many people are allowing themselves to be sleep deprived, but sleep is one of the most important and easy tools your mind has for coping with stress. Breathing training many anxiety symptoms, particularly for those with anxiety attacks, are a result of inadequate breathing techniques. Anxiety can actually train your body to breathe poorly, leading to hyperventilation and a variety of related symptoms. Exposure therapy exposure is a cognitive behavioral technique that trains you to get used to things that used to cause you anxiety. For example, if you often get anxiety when you feel dizzy, you spin around in a chair and use a variety of techniques to calm your mind. Lifestyle changes many lifestyle changes that you will need to make in order to live with anxiety also require long term changes. For example, who you spend time with may need to change, as will how you react at your workplace. These strategies take longer, and require more effort and planning on your part. They're also not immediately successful, and there are often setbacks. Realistic goals and an effective and healthy plan can reduce the effects of these setbacks. You'll also need to be okay with admitting to yourself that you have an anxiety problem that needs to be solved. If you continue to try to fight the truth about your anxiety, you'll struggle to overcome it. Anxiety and stress are very real problems that affect people every day, and there's nothing wrong with you if you suffer from them. As soon as you can come to terms with your anxiety, you'll be on the right path towards treating it.

Psychiatric Illness

Lifestyle Changes to Boost Mental Health

Myself Dr. Milind Barhate, psychiatrist, practicing in Mumbai since last 10 years. Mental illness is the most common illness in the world. Stress is the most common factor for causing most of the psychiatric illnesses. People believe that stress is not a psychiatric problem and it is a part of life. That’s why most of the patients are not coming for the treatment.

Some misconceptions about stress are there. Stress affect everywhere, your mind and body, from head to toe. When it affects your mind it causes migraine, headache, head ache, vomiting, nausea, paralytic attack, heart diseases, blood pressure, diabetes, acidity and stomach problems, breathlessness, muscle cramps, sexual dysfunction and lot of other illnesses like constipation, diarrhea, anxiety problems, it affects every part of this body. Not only body, it affects your mind and emotions, when emotion affects person becomes irritable, he feels sadness, then gradually other faculties of the mind gets affected and gradually the person either goes into depression, anxiety, sleep problems, psychosis or addictions.

People believe that stress is not an problem. When it becomes a big problem they come for a treatment, with a disease, like depression, anxiety, mood disorders, psychosis or suicide attempt. That time treatment becomes difficult and patient has to take treatment for a longer period. There are a lot of factors causing stress. Most people blame others for their own problems like inflations, job problems. Most of the time he himself is responsible like irresponsible behavior, suspiciousness, not taking responsibility of family-child-workplace, unmanageability, procrastination, all these lead to problem either in home or workplace or in society which leads to stress.

So when the issue of stress management comes most of the general people go for changing their lifestyle, starting exercises, pranayam, moving around or reading some books, listening to music or going outside, all these relieves your stress but only for a couple of days or couple of weeks. Again after that the stress becomes as it is, because the reason for stress is your character defects, until and unless you are not going to change yourself the problem is not going to come down. So when the stress management issues come, initially and most importantly the character defects that leads to the stress has to be managed and it needs a tough and long behavior therapy, counseling, and if the problem arises then you may need psychiatric help.

For more details and further contact you can contact me on Lybrate.com. Thank you.

It must be frustrating and demotivating for you to repeatedly" not clear" the exam. Please notice that I said" not clear" instead of failing, because you seem to be associating this failure with your personal failure, which is actually not true. You are much more and beyond the passing and failing in an exam. Humans have unlimited potential out of which we use only 5-7%. Rest is untapped. Clearing your exam is not the only way to achieve your success and happiness. Try to create more situations where you get to learn more and utilise your learning. It is common knowledge that, public exams like banking and ias have few seats available but applicants are in lakhs. Usually such students, create a plan b and plan c, where in they have already thought of another job or course to take up so that their learning and earning doesn't stop. Your knowledge and learning will not go waste. Find out where else it can be applied eg. Ias students learn more about current affairs, general knowledge and govt policies for establishments and organisations. Even if they don't get a govt job, they can apply in private sector or start their own business. Set up a time frame within which you try a set number of times. If you don't get through. Leave it and move on. Life doesn't stop for anyone. People who are flexible and adaptable are successful, people who don't adapt get left out. I'm sure that you would have heard of" survival of the fittest" theory by charles darwin. You must understand what are your strengths and in which fields you would do your best. Think of those moments when you were doing your best and felt the happiest and lively. Many researchers have proved that if you find out what is your" calling" then you will do your best, feel content and satisfied and experience good physical, mental and emotional wellbeing. I suggest that you take out time to understand what you excel at. Maybe not getting through this exam is a boon in disguise.

I will appreciate if you can visit any nearby psychiatrist or a physician in your nearby area and get a consultation on the kind of medication or pill that you are taking. See sometimes we take pill and it is not effective which is also happening in your case. This may be happening either you require some other form of medication or no medication at all. So this will be clarified by the psychiatrist or any physician in your area. If you are saying you are in stress, you need to specify that why are you in stress? I hope you understand that there are reasons why people undergo stress, probably because they are not able to find solutions of various things in their lives but with the help of a trained professional like a clinical psychologist, you can decrease your stress or anxiety. Moreover, one of the reasons of fear from shadows and moving objects is also because the person may have fear from death, may be because the person is experiencing too much responsibility or is under any kind of pressure. The fear of shadows or moving objects may be because one may have fear of getting hurt or being conquered by the other. This can be a way where in you can think about the reasons of your fear and work on it. I hope this may help you and you can write back again. Regards.
