Dear , anxiety disorder is a disorder and not a disease. You should understand the eifference between mental disorder and mental disease. Mental diseases are treated with medicines and mental disorders are treated with other holistic methods. I need to have more information so that I can help you wean off the medicines. Online counseling, psychotherapy and life style changes should help you. Post a detailed private question to me. I will help you manage your anxiety disorder. Take care.

I can't sleep properly at night. I knew I have a lot of stress due to work. What should I do?

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Delhi
I can't sleep properly at night. I knew I have a lot of stress due to work. What should I do?
Hello, welcome to lybrate. a sound sleep leads to a sound mind, its good to see that you want to consult about your sleep issues, as most of the people just neglect it. Healthy sleep is considered to be a 6-8 hour sleep at night without frequent awakenings at night. Sleep disturbances can be caused by multiple factors such as stress; emotional disturbances; poor general condition; substance use such as smoke, alcohol; medications for some other conditions; work shifts etc. Hence to find out the exact cause and nature of sleep disturbance a detailed assessment is required. Sleep disturbances can be managed by simple measures by adopting sleep hygiene to use of sedative-hypnotic agents such as benzodiazepines, but the mode of intervention will depend on the severity and cause. Hence if you want to seek a detailed assessment and management of your sleep problem, do consult me.

Maintain very good relations in job environment. Do your work in comfortable manner. Initially it is very difficult. But practice it. Because it is not one day matter. You have continue so many years. Think always positive manner. Start your work in a positive manner. Do every assignment in a pleasing manner. Develop smile attitude middle of the work. After work completed feel relaxed. Evening better to spend with your family members. After work over evening take anything small snacks etc. Go regularly morning. When you go to office. Enjoy the natural movement. Better to observe others. How they look like confident manner. You also feel and behave like that. Because of tension you are getting pain. It is called psychosomatic problem. When we psychologically gives much stress it influences body also. So do not be always stress manner. Be happy and be friendly with others. Best of luck.

Dear, You must understand the difference between alcohol addiction and abuse. You can definitely quit alcohol in one go. Just stop it and swear not to drink again. Engage yourself in games and other engaging activities during evenings or when you feel the urge. Just a week, your habit should change. There are many other methods, which you can see through internet. The best method is what I suggested. Please try it without fail. Take care.

How can one know if he is suffering from depression?

PhD (Psychology), MSc Psychology, MS
Psychologist,
Dear, depression is a state of low mood and aversion to activity that can affect a person's thoughts, behavior, feelings and sense of well-being. People with depressed mood can feel sad, anxious, empty, hopeless, helpless, worthless, guilty, irritable, ashamed or restless. They may lose interest in activities that were once pleasurable, experience loss of appetite or overeating, have problems concentrating, remembering details or making decisions, and may contemplate, attempt or commit suicide. Insomnia, excessive sleeping, fatigue, aches, pains, digestive problems or reduced energy may also be present. Depression is usually treated with a combination of medicines, psychotherapy, exercise and meditation. Depression is manageable with all these steps. I think two or three counseling sessions and psycho therapy techniques should help manage depression. Let me know if you are willing to undergo counseling sessions and tailor made psycho therapy through mobile. Take care.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. Smoking 3 cigarettes daily or 5 for that matter is no addiction. I sincerely feel you can simply quit smoking with your will power. There are many other methods like deaddiction therapy. But nothing works better than will power. I suggest online motivation counselling. Take care.

I suffering from haklana problem from last five years. How can l get relief from this problem.

PDDM, MHA, MBBS
General Physician, Nashik
Stammering can be made lesser only and only by speech therapy. So you should take the help of a speech therapist. Also, i'd suggest you to visit a psychologist as confidence plays a great role in dealing with this problem. I'd suggest you to speak very slowly, word by word. People may make fun of this but believe me, slowly you'll get better at it. Hope your query is answered. Feel free to ask if you have any doubts. Wishing you good health.

Hello lybrate-user, your body has received a signal or a message that it will sleep at a particular time. Allow your body or discipline it consciously so that you start sleeping early in the night. To help you with sleep try meditation at night. Meditation can help you to promote sound sleep.

Sir I am student of Bsc but my memory power very low how to improve my memory power.

BASM, MD, MS (Counseling & Psychotherapy), MSc - Psychology, Certificate in Clinical psychology of children and Young People, Certificate in Psychological First Aid, Certificate in Positive Psychology
Psychologist, Palakkad
Dear imtiyaz, welcome to lybrate. Memory and mind power depends mainly on three aspects. Understanding, storage and recollection. To understand what you are studying, you must be able to be attentive or concentrate. Concentration is possible when you are interested in that subject. Creative way of learning can help you concentrate and understand easily. When you are able to understand and concentrate, it is stored within your brain. If you read more and more it will be store in long term memory. Third part is retrieval. Whenever you want to retrive what you learned and stored, your brain gets the request, searches the database and retrieves the information for you. The retrieval may prove to be difficult if you are anxious, stressed, worried or tired physically or mentally. Retrieval is more easy when you are relaxed and healthy. Brain needs nutrients to keep itself sharp. Fruits, vegetables and dry fruits provide much needed nutrients for your brain. Include at least one fruit in your daily diet. Physical exercises, entertainment, hobbies, relaxation, memory games like sudoku etc help keep your memory sharp and active. Take care.

Panic attack is extreme form of anxiety. It s a psychiatric disorder due to serotonin (A neurotransmitter) somewhat being low. So taking SSRI group of drugs will reduce and remit the attacks. Also some behavior therapy would help

First of all, stop stressing yourself by thinking toooo much about how you will manage. Just give it a head-on start and start preparing. Keep your office work light by taking your colleagues and boss into confidence about exams. Am very sure, if you seek their help, they will be helpful. Next, keep your focus all the time on preparation. Do little bits at a time. E.g. One little topic in whatever time you can squeeze out, even in office. Do not sit with friends over lunch- finish off fast at your desk, start with studies in lunch time. Likewise, while travel, etc. Make a list of all topics covered and pat your back each time you complete one more topic. Keep counting your topics covered, on a separate sheet, write a list of all to be covered, and keep striking out those you are done with. This will give you a lot of confidence. Am sure, you will be able to manage successfully. Best of luck.

At you age probably you are studying a lot, or are under stress to perform well in the exams or moving around too much in the hot sun. Actually there are a number of reasons which can cause headache. Since you are having headache for last 2 weeks, it would be better for you to go a doctor who will check your all other parameters and give you appropriate medicine. Please do not take medicines on your own, it is harmful. There is a lot of difference between feeling sad and feeling depressed" depression" is a very intense feeling and a depressed person becomes almost non-functional, inactive and many times suicidal. So please be aware of your real feelings. Are you feeling sad and low or are you feeling depressed? don't allow temporary set backs to discourage you. You are very young. Try to learn new skills, pursue studies of your interests. Have a realistic dream and make a concrete plan to achieve that dream. Please remember, in this world only one person can help you all the time and that person is yourself. Have faith in yourself. Take care.

You are going through grief reaction, which is normal after loss of a love. Time is the healer for the emotional and behavioral changes, however if your depression is severe enough to affect you in a significant manner, kindly consult a psychiatrist for short term antidepressant medication, depending on the complaints. Try to get away from loneliness and meet other friends or relatives.
