Frustration Life is full of frustrations. From the minor irritations of losing something to the major problem of continued failure towards a desired goal. Since many of the things we truly want require a degree of frustration, being able to manage frustration is required in order to allow us to remain happy and positive even in trying circumstances. Understanding Frustration Frustration is an emotion that occurs in situations where a person is blocked from reaching a desired outcome. In general, whenever we reach one of our goals, we feel pleased and whenever we are prevented from reaching our goals, we may succumb to frustration and feel irritable, annoyed and angry. Typically, the more important the goal, the greater the frustration and resultant anger or loss of confidence. Frustration is not necessarily bad since it can be a useful indicator of the problems in a person's life and, as a result, it can act as a motivator to change. However, when it results in anger, irritability, stress resentment, depression or a spiral downward where we have a feeling of resignation or giving up, frustration can be destructive. What Causes Frustration? Frustration is experienced whenever the results (goals) you are expecting do not seem to fit the effort and action you are applying. Frustration will occur whenever your actions are producing less and fewer results than you think they should. The frustration we experience can be seen as the result of two types of goal blockage, i.e. internal and external sources of frustration. Internal sources of frustration usually involve the disappointment that get when we cannot have what we want as a result of personal real or imagined deficiencies such as a lack of confidence or fear of social situations. Another type of internal frustration results when a person has competing goals that interfere with one another. The second type of frustration results from external causes that involve conditions outside the person such as physical roadblocks we encounter in life including other people and things that get in the way of our goals. One of the biggest sources of frustration in today's world is the frustration caused by the perception of wasting time. When you're standing in line at a bank, or in traffic, or on the phone, watching your day go by when you have got so much to do, that's one big frustration. External frustration may be unavoidable. We can try to do something about it, like finding a different route if we are stuck in traffic, or choosing a different restaurant if our first choice is closed, but sometimes there is just nothing we can do about it. It is just the way life is. Our goal in dealing with external sources of frustration is to recognize the wisdom of the Serenity Prayer..."God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change; courage to change the things I can; and wisdom to know the difference." One can learn that while the situation itself may be upsetting and frustrating, you do not have to be frustrated. Accepting life is one of the secrets of avoiding frustration. Responses to Frustration Some of the "typical" responses to frustration include anger, quitting (burn out or giving up), loss of self-esteem and self-confidence, stress and depression. Anger management: 10 tips to tame your temper ANGER: There is a saying "Frustration begets anger and anger begets aggression." Direct anger, is expressed toward the object perceived as the cause of the frustration. If a machine does not work, you might hit it or kick it. If someone gets in your way, you could verbally threaten them or push them aside. If the source of the frustration is too powerful or threatening for direct aggression, displaced aggression is often used. The aggression is redirected toward a less threatening and more available object. An angry person often acts without thinking. The person has given in to the frustration and they have given up restraint. Anger can be a healthy response if it motivates us to positive action but all too often the actions we engage in when angry are destructive. Indeed, if we could see a videotape of ourselves getting angry, the humiliation might well help cure us of anger. When you feel frustration building, you have to practice learned responses that lead to healthy actions instead of destructive ones. GIVING UP: Giving up on a goal can be productive if the goal is truly out of reach. However, more often giving up (quitting or being apathetic) is another form of giving in to frustration. When repeatedly frustrated, people can drop out of school, quit jobs, or move away. Apathy is giving up all of your goals, so you cannot be frustrated by trying to reach them. We live in difficult time and we have to be persistent in order to accomplish. Consider how many projects you began, and then gave up, because you became frustrated and lost patience. Make a list of things you started and quit because they seemed too difficult. Now calculate the disappointment and loss you suffered by not dealing with the frustration in a more healthy way. Try to remember that quitters never win, and winners never quit. Losing your temper means you're a quitter. LOSS OF CONFIDENCE: is a terrible frequent side effect of giving up and not fulfilling your goal. A loss of self-confidence and self-esteem, means that If we quit once, then the next time we plan a goal, we may not be able to accurately assess our ability to carry it out and we stop trusting ourselves and our own abilities. This became a self-fulfilling and self-destructive attitude. You need to be able to learn that when the going gets tough, you say to yourself "It is worth it!" and by following through, it not only gets the job done, but it builds self-confidence. STRESS: is the "wear and tear" our body and mind experiences as we adjust to the frustrations our continually changing environment. Too frequently, extreme, or prolonged frustration and stress strains us and generates distress signals. Our body experiences distress signals in a variety of ways, often in the form of: irritability, anger, fatigue anxiety, headache, depression, stomach aches, hypertension, migraines, ulcers, heart attacks, or colitis. DEPRESSION: Depression can affect almost every aspect of your life. It affects people of all ages, income, race, and cultures. Depression can affect the way you eat and sleep the way you feel about yourself, the way one think about things, and the way you interact with others. While we all feel depression at various appropriate times in our lives, excess or inappropriate depression cannot be easily dismissed or wished away. OTHER REACTIONS: abuse of drugs & alcohol is self-destructive and usually futile attempt at dealing with frustration, as are many eating and weight problems and addictions Whenever the immediate effects of the addictive behaviour wear off, users find themselves back in the same, or even worse, frustrating situation.

I think am obsessed with thinking about a person since 7-8 months. I was in relationship with him but it never worked out well, I have just met him just once, atleast 1.5yr earlier to the beginning of our relationship, and wen we came into a relationship we couldnt meet, I just spoke to each other through phone. I dont understand how that person effects me so much whom I have never met. I have been continuously thinking about him, all the day and night, even I dream of him in a regular interval. I think so much about him that sometimes I feel I can feel him or see him. I have tried not thinking about him, diverted my mind, but even in mid of 6-7 friends I cannot control my mind thinking about him. I am completely tensed.

It seems that you are very suggestible. You are obsessing about this person by merely being in contact with him over the phone! That means that he must have known what to say to you and make you feel happy and good about yourself: Which also means that you are very vulnerable to other people giving you attention. If you have not been getting enough attention in your own life then you will become very easily enamored by anyone giving you positive attention. You must be careful of this because if a boy wants to get you to do anything for them, then all they need to do is to give you lots f love and you will immediately oblige. You must learn to love yourself and be fully satiated so that you will be self-sufficient in yourself. Otherwise other people can take advantage of you, especially in love. I think that you should move on rather quickly and for that you need to take some measures. You must deal with all your feelings you had around him and clear it out of your system. Remove all the gifts, reminders of him, and give it away or destroy them, if there are any. Meet a lot with other friends whom you might have neglected all these months and renew the contacts all over again. Please do not bad mouth him to anyone and just say that we broke up for some good reasons and you are okay with that. Start an exercise regimen and get on with your studies, and career building, with a renewed vigor. Do not get into another relationship as yet, and if the feelings for this boy continues to haunt you, please meet with a counselor and share them with that person. In time this will all be history and you will be happy you moved on.

These might be the side effects of the medicines or your ptsd. To hep you recover from ptsd, I suggest that you include counselling as part of treatment to help you to reduce the residual emotional impact of the incident and it's memories. Counselling can also help you to rehabilitate emotionally and socially if you are feeling lonely and isolated. Some tips to help you put the incident behind you and move on: 1. Get moving with doing physical exercises like running, jogging, sports, mountain climbing, biking, trekking etc. This will awaken the numbed nervous system and help you remain in today's reality rather than the past or the future. The exercise will help you to feel confident, powerful and in control of yourself and your surroundings as you complete each round of the activity. Relaxing in the lap of nature is an integral part of healing from ptsd. The quietness can be calming and healing to the tortured soul. 2. Meet people: connecting with gentle and understanding people who have the time for you and are non judgemental of your past will help you to heal the scars of the past and move beyond them. This gives a sense of safety, security and support which ptsd people need. 3. Remind yourself that you are alive after all: this in it self is a huge feeling of power over the source of trauma. If you can, help other people who are undergoing the same trauma or donate blood and volunteer with the underprivileged. This work is very healing in itself and you realise your own power to heal and help others. 4. Cut out smoking and alcohol and have a nutritious and healthy well balanced meals. This also helps the mind and body to recuperate from the trauma as the nutrition repairs any cell damage in the brain and body. Meditations, pranayama and yoga are very effective tools to reduce panic and anxiety attacks pertaining to ptsd.

Dear lybrate-user, Welcome to Lybrate. Alcohol and chewing pan addiction also comes under abuse and addiction. If you’re ready to stop the substance and willing to get the support you need, you can recover from addiction and abuse —no matter how bad the addiction or how powerless you feel. The first step in treating addiction is accepting that you have a problem. Confronting an addiction and accepting responsibility for your actions isn’t easy. But it’s a necessary step on the road to treatment and recovery. You should then consult a psychiatrist / psychologist who fill follow this treatment. 1. Detoxification using medicines. 2. Behavior modification with the help of therapies. 3. Counseling. 4. Medication to sustain and 5. Long term support. These given steps are essential for any addict to get effectively rid of addiction. Therefore, you need to stick to the treatment plan. Take care.

Is medication good for psychosis? If not what is the alternative?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist,
Medication is absolutely good and necessary for treating psychosis. There is no alternative but you will need to combine counseling or psychotherapy along with the medicines. Psychosis is a problem of imbalance in the chemical production or processing of the same in the brain. In very rare cases, in institutional settings, in very intense one-to-one therapy, it has been claimed that there has been erratic success to get the brain to produce the same chemicals to compensate the loss or gain. People have resorted to black magic to undo the spells that they believed has cast them into such states; and religious superstitions that have only worsened the condition. The advancements in medicine have improved to a large extent to contain most conditions. It is the naive who sometimes mess the situation by other approaches that it worsens the psychosis to a chronic and irreparable state. The plight of the individual is doomed forever.

Hello doctor. My sister is feeling restless since 1 week. Unable to sleep. Unable to concentrate on work and even a small sound is disturbing her. She is 38 years old. Please tell me what could that be.

MBBS, MD - Psychiatry, MBA (Healthcare)
Psychiatrist, Davanagere
Good Morning ~ There are many psychiatric conditions with the symptoms you describe and I would need more information to diagnose the condition and suggest appropriate medications or investigations or both. I believe the insomnia may be the cause of her restlessness and poor concentration, however you might feel better to know that your sister is just having insomnia, for which there are many medical and psychological therapies. If the concentration problems as well as disturbed sleep is due to anxiety, counseling may be helpful, however more information is needed and a thorough evaluation will lead to a better diagnosis and appropriate recommendation.

Your divorce may have a lot to do with your stress. Change of location does play a part but together with the divorce, they could cause a lot of sleeplessness. I suggest you deal with the stress and a lot of improvement is likely to happen forthwith. For improving your sleep try some or all of the following: Instead of worrying too much about causes, why don’t you implement some of my suggestions, because they work effectively. The lack of sleep, i. E. Sleep for less than 6 hours per night, is directly linked to about 86 diseases! So let us first focus on that. In your case particularly, do not sleep during the day; don’t even lie down. Go for regular exercise (breathing through your nostrils only) at a fixed time (at about 6 am) every day, whether you sleep or not. You must develop this habit of sleeping by 10 pm latest every night and wake up at a uniform time by 6 am every morning, even if you do not get sleep. If you do not get sleep, just lie down and if you have a bed lamp (or you could get one) lie down and read something light but not exciting. Your eyes will tire and you will fall asleep. If you like you may also put on light and soft music with the sleep function on. Depending on whether you are a visual or auditory person, you may watch TV in a lying down position until you feel sleepy. Have a warm bath before going to bed (for some people a cold bath at night seems to induce sleep! If you are one of them, please do so). Place the head side of your bed in a North-South position. The room must be as dark as possible and there should be no electronic items that give off even a light LED glow. There must be ample ventilation in the room. Avoid strong odors, except lavender, on your body or in the room, or on your sheets and clothes. There should not be any live plants in your bedroom. Sleep with the lightest of clothes or without any clothing. When lying down to sleep, lie down on your left ear as much as possible. Do not sleep directly under an overhead fan. You must eat a good breakfast, a fairly light lunch, and an early dinner, which should be a very light meal. Whatever you eat in the other meals, have only a pure carbohydrate meal at night with any vegetables, and preferably before 8 pm. Do not drink much liquids after or near about dinner time. When lying down to sleep you may use the 4-7-8 breathing pattern of sleep inducement i. E. Breathe in for four counts through your nostril only, hold for 7 counts, and exhale with a whoosh sound, through your mouth only, for 8 counts. Repeat this four times in the morning and just before you sleep at night. If you know Emotional Freedom Technique or EFT (check this out either on YouTube or Google), then please practice this too for sleep induction. Self-hypnosis and slow relaxation techniques, at night will be tremendously useful. Acupuncture or acupressure will both be very useful too. Pray last thing at night before you sleep.

Penile papules have been reported to be present in between 8% and 43% of men. They are more common in men that have not been circumcised. They become less apparent with increased age. Penile papules are a normal anatomic variant. They are not due to sexual activity or lack of hygiene. They are not infectious or contagious, unlike genital warts. They are not malignant or pre-malignant. Castor oil is said to be highly effective in treating PPP.
