Occasional anxiety is a normal part of life. You might feel anxious when faced with a problem at work, before taking a test, or making an important decision. Anxiety disorders involve more than temporary worry or fear. For a person with an anxiety disorder, the anxiety does not go away and can get worse over time. These feelings can interfere with daily activities such as job performance, school work, and relationships. There are a variety of anxiety disorders. Collectively they are among the most common mental disorders. Types of Anxiety Disorders There are three types of anxiety disorders discussed on this website: Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD) Panic Disorder Social Anxiety Disorder (Social Phobia) Signs and Symptoms Unlike the relatively mild, brief anxiety caused by a specific event (such as speaking in public or a first date), severe anxiety that lasts at least six months is generally considered to be problem that might benefit from evaluation and treatment. Each anxiety disorder has different symptoms, but all the symptoms cluster around excessive, irrational fear and dread. Anxiety disorders commonly occur along with other mental or physical illnesses, including alcohol or substance abuse, which may mask anxiety symptoms or make them worse. In some cases, these other problems need to be treated before a person can respond well to treatment for anxiety. While some symptoms, such as fear and worry, occur in all anxiety disorders, each disorder also has distinctive symptoms. For more information, visit: Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD) Panic Disorder Social Anxiety Disorder (Social Phobia) Diagnosis and Treatment Anxiety disorders are treatable. If you think you have an anxiety disorder, talk to your doctor. Sometimes a physical evaluation is advisable to determine whether a person’s anxiety is associated with a physical illness. If anxiety is diagnosed, the pattern of co-occurring symptoms should be identified, as well as any coexisting conditions, such as depression or substance abuse. Sometimes alcoholism, depression, or other coexisting conditions have such a strong effect on the individual that treating the anxiety should wait until the coexisting conditions are brought under control. With proper treatment, many people with anxiety disorders can lead normal, fulfilling lives. If your doctor thinks you may have an anxiety disorder, the next step is usually seeing a mental health professional. It is advisable to seek help from professionals who have particular expertise in diagnosing and treating anxiety. Certain kinds of cognitive and behavioral therapy and certain medications have been found to be especially helpful for anxiety. You should feel comfortable talking with the mental health professional you choose. If you do not, you should seek help elsewhere. Once you find a clinician with whom you are comfortable, the two of you should work as a team and make a plan to treat your anxiety disorder together. In general, anxiety disorders are treated with medication, specific types of psychotherapy, or both. Treatment choices depend on the type of disorder, the person’s preference, and the expertise of the clinician. People with anxiety disorders who have already received treatment should tell their clinician about that treatment in detail. If they received medication, they should tell their doctor what medication was used, what the dosage was at the beginning of treatment, whether the dosage was increased or decreased while they were under treatment, what side effects occurred, and whether the treatment helped them become less anxious. If they received psychotherapy, they should describe the type of therapy, how often they attended sessions, and whether the therapy was useful. Often people believe that they have “failed” at treatment or that the treatment didn’t work for them when, in fact, it was not given for an adequate length of time or was administered incorrectly. Sometimes people must try different treatments or combinations of treatment before they find the one that works for them. I HAVE BEEN TREATING PATIENTS OF DEPRESSION AND BELIEVE ME HOMOEOPATHY IS THE ONLY TREATMENT WHICH CAN CURE DEPRESSION PERMANENTLY.

I have a bad habit of smoking Will you give me some suggestions for cigarette free life.

DNB (Psychiatry), DPM, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Mumbai
Four" a" of challenging smoking habit. Avoid: certain places and people can tempt you to smoke, stay away. Alter: take a walk when you used to take a smoke break. Alternatives: use oral substitutes like gum, cloves or sauf activities: exercise or hobby that keep your hands busy can help to distract the urge to smoke. Consultation with a deaddiction specialist/ psychiatrist can help you more if above measures are not helping.

My wife is diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia and currently she is currently admitted in hospital my welwishers suggest I should end the relationship as it would be difficult to lead a normal life.

Masters in Clinical Psychology
Psychologist, Lucknow
Hi lybrate-user, its true that Caregiving for someone with schizophrenia is a huge job, tiring and frustrating at times. Current and former partners of people with schizophrenia seem to agree that the following two criteria can make or break a relationship: The ill partner must accept treatment. Untreated schizophrenia can make people behave erratically. The other partner may become subject to verbal abuse, emotional neglect, and delusional accusations. No healthy relationship can sustain this. The well partner must create a support system. Schizophrenia affects your partner's ability to meet your emotional needs, so you will need your own support system outside the relationship. Caregivers tend to suffer from depression, so it's important to have access to mental health support, like a counselor or therapist. Friends and family can provide a listening ear, a much-needed distraction, and a sense of normalcy. Both partners must communicate. Open and clear communication will help the partner with schizophrenia get the support he or she needs as well as understand what’s expected of him or her in the relationship. In addition to individual therapy, marital therapy can help both partners cope with the effects schizophrenia has on the relationship. You can take marital counseling the ultimate decision lies with you. Make a sound decision. There are lot of factors to consider. You can discus and consult with me for same. All the best.

My son is addicted to cannabis and is creating violence in the family what to do for his deaddiction.
Hello Mr. Lybrate-user, sit down with your son and talk to him for 15 minutes, every day. Express your opinion about taking substances- what are your thoughts over this habit, not in a dominating way, but in a way how you would plainly express your opinion. When your son is ready to open up to you he will. Thereafter, try to understand what is bothering him. His world view might be different from your's don't counter his points, listen sympathetically. Ensure he does not take any other substances along with this. Adopt a non-judgmental and motivational approach. Don't counter his arguments. His anger will subside slowly, if you don't counter his arguments. Just lend him a patient ear. Motivate him. Remind him of the skills and talents he has. Most importantly give him hope- that things can get better in the future. When he is emotionally stable encourage him to see a counselor. Hope this helps you.

I cant concentrate much time in studies and I cant remember so long what can I do for that? So that im getting so less marks. What are the ways to remember the portions that I read.

BHMS
Homeopath, Faridabad
Hello, There are few food which helps you in boosting up your memory power, increases focus & concentration, so try to take more of these: 1.Choline: Good sources of choline include liver, milk, eggs and peanuts. 2.Vitamin B: B vitamins are not synthesized in the body, and thus need to be obtained from food. B-complex vitamins are water-soluble vitamins, which means that they are not stored within the body. In consequence, the B vitamins need ongoing replenishment. Vitamin B1 (thiamine) rich sources include unrefined grain products, ready-to-eat cereals, meat (especially pork), dairy products, peanuts, legumes, fruits and eggs. Foods that contain high concentrations of vitamin B3 (niacin) in the free form include beans and organ meat, as well as enriched grain and cereal products. While niacin is present in corn and other grains, the bioavailability of the nutrient is much less than it is in protein-rich sources. The role of vitamin B9 (folic acid) during pregnancy is vital to normal development of the nervous system in the fetus. Good sources of folate include liver, ready-to-eat breakfast cereals, beans, asparagus, spinach, broccoli, and orange juice.Animal protein products are a good source of vitamin B12 (cobalamine), particularly organ meats such as kidney or liver. Other good sources are fish, eggs, and dairy products. 3.Vitamin A: The foods highest in Vitamin A are any pigmented fruits and vegetables and leafy green vegetables. 4.Zinc: Zinc is a very important part of the brain as well; many regions of the brain, such as the cerebellum, and hippocampus have neurons that contain this nutrient.Zinc is needed to maintain normal Vitamin A levels in blood plasma. Sources of zinc are meats, certain seafood, whole grains, baked beans, oatmeal, milk (low-fat), cashewnut, almonds, kidney-beans, cheese, peas, spinach, sesame seeds, pumpkin seeds, flaxseeds. Medication: Take homoeopathic medicine for increasing memory - Anacardium 200/ once daily. For Depression: Hello, Practicing yoga helps you in releasing the stress from your body. Brisk walk in a park will help you inhale more fresh air and oxygen for good functioning of the cells and tissues of the body. Medication: Take Schwabe’s Bacopa Monierri 1x/ thrice daily and Kali Phos. 6x/ once at night.

Dear lybrate user, I really appreciate your efforts to get your loved one out of addiction. He needs to undergo de-addiction treatment. Take him to a de-addiction center. The doctor their will first de-toxify his body, then will give him some medication to manage withdrawal symptoms. At the same time he will need some counselling. The counselling process will help him to find out his triggers for smoking and help him to deal with those stressors. The counselling process will also help him to manage his anger and stress. It is very nice of you to be concerned about him. But please understand that he needs to take responsibility for his own actions and his life. Do not take the entire responsibility for his de-addiction or behavioural problems on your shoulders. Make him responsible. Let him do things for himself. Take care.

Traumatic life events in the child hood, has affected your personality development. From your text it is apparent that you have, emotionally unstable and impulsive personality traits. These people have unexplained mood swings, high rejection sensitivity poor anger control, tendencies of harming themselves. First you should know yourself better, identify the shortcomings (which we all have) and work on it. You should practice more patience, try to react as less you can, regular meditations and breathing pranayama will increase your resilience and decrease anxiety. Take help of professional if you are not able to handle it.

Dear, Depression is a state of mind, reacting to missing something expected. This means he is anxious about something. Medications do work on the symptoms but try to understand the problem. Try to fix up an appointment to discuss.

I am in a physical relationship with a man who is married & who I love. I too am married. The man I love says he is committed & loves his wife and can never ever think of leaving her ever. While he also has multiple sexual relationships with other women. I fail to understand if he loves his wife truly and is committed to her than why does he opts for sexual relationships, that too with multiple women. What is his psyche behind this? Isn't he betraying his wife? If there is betrayl than how can he claim to love his wife? He also told me that once you are inyour 40s and 50s you need a support to look after you, to care for you and if you get a good person, you shouldn't ever leave her. While I am very straight forward, I will divorce my husband as I don't love him. Please help.

While you raise some pertinent questions about this man?s professed commitment to his wife and that he is fooling around with other women, I fail to understand how it matters to you! He is that kind of a man: he wants his cake and eat it too; and he is successfully doing it. What is baffling is that you know that this is not appropriate; you know that he is betraying his wife; you know that he is sleeping around with so many women, yet you yourself are bedding with him and have no qualms about letting down another woman i.e. his wife! You are also encouraging this man in his infidelity and making him feel that it is okay to sleep around. Even if you do not love your husband, you are in an unacceptable relationship for various reasons and I do not know what justifications you can cook up to make your aiding and abetting with this man?s unacceptable liaisons, look acceptable! It is almost like the frying pan calling the kettle black! You be the judge of your behavior and let him be answerable for his actions. Analyzing his actions, while encouraging them yourself is not in the right league at all. Just for your understanding anyway, men will justify and make something that is grossly illegitimate look very legitimate when they themselves are indulging in it. The explanation he gave you when being in your 40s and 50s is a whole lot of crap, but you seemed to have accepted it without question!

Loss of interest, decreased concentration and attention, feeling low and disturbed sleep or appetite are some of the signs of depression. Consult a psychiatrist who will assess you in detail. If you are feeling suicidal or hopeless, seek professional help immediately. Try some relaxation techniques like yoga, meditation and deep breathing. Indulge in hobbies. Spend time with people close to you.

Prioritizing is the most important step towards achieving goals

Prioritizing is the most important step towards achieving goals
"You pile up enough for tomorrow. You' will find you are left with nothing, but a lot of empty yesterdays" - Prof Harold Hill

Life is busy. It seems it is impossible to move towards your dreams. If you have a full time job and kids, it's even more harder.

So if you don't purposefully carve time out every day to progress in diet and exercise and improve- no doubt without fail, your muscle mass will get lost in the bargain of muscle mass reducing with age

Before you know, you will be old and withered - wondering where all that time went.

So start acting now.

Dear user. I can understand. I do not know for how many years you are married, what is the general behavior of your husband and in-laws etc. Therefore it is very difficult to answer your question directly. But I can say very clearly that many family relationships break just because of misunderstanding and lack of trust. You must understand clearly whether you are actually and correctly understands your husbands behavior, of just blaming. If you are hundred percent perfect and right (if you feel) then we will talk about your husband's behavior and in that case he needs family counseling. Take care.
