Mild Anxiety: What it is and How to Treat It

Do you have a habit of getting too anxious about minor matters? Is your severe anxiety hampering the smooth functioning of your daily life? Is anxiety giving you headaches, causing insomnia and making you paranoid? All these conditions imply that you are suffering from anxiety disorder. There are several types of anxiety disorders with various symptoms, and there are effective treatment procedures for curing them as well.

Signs and symptoms of severe anxiety/ anxiety disorder: The signs of anxiety disorder vary from person to person, but one common major symptom is severe fear, tension and worry even in petty situations.

Emotional symptoms:

The common emotional symptoms except fear and tension include the following:

  1. Feelings of great apprehension or a dread feeling
  2. Problem with concentration
  3. Feeling overly tensed
  4. Always anticipating the worst in any situation
  5. Feeling restless and irritable
  6. Watching out for danger signs in everything
  7. Feeling mentally blank

Physical symptoms:

Anxiety is much more than being just a feeling and several physical symptoms are observed as a result of the body's response to severe anxiety. The most common physical symptoms are as follows:

  1. A pounding heart
  2. Excessive sweating
  3. An upset or dizzy stomach
  4. Enhanced urge for urination and diarrhea
  5. Breathing problems
  6. Muscle tension
  7. Feeling twitches and tremors
  8. Severe headache and excess fatigue
  9. Sleeplessness or insomnia

Coping with severe anxiety:

In order to cope with anxiety disorder, you should follow these tips:

  1. You should connect with other people as being lonely or isolated may trigger your anxiety. Meet friends or join support groups. You should share your feelings with a loved one to ease the anxiety.
  2. You must start undertaking relaxation techniques such as mindfulness meditation, progressive muscle relaxation or deep breathing. These help in reducing your anxiety and make you feel relaxed.
  3. Regular exercise and work out is a natural stress buster and relieves anxiety. Practice different types of exercises strictly every day.
  4. You must get sufficient sleep as lack of sleep boosts your feelings of anxiety and tension. You should get nine hours of undisturbed sleep every night.
  5. You should reduce your intake of alcohol and caffeine products, which worsen your anxiety.
  6. You must train your mind to stay calm. The habit of needless worrying must be brought under control. You can undertake strategies such as creating a worry period, challenging the thoughts of anxiety and accepting uncertainty in life.

The self-help strategies for coping with severe anxiety can be quite effective. In some cases, fear and anxiety attacks become very severe and cause great distress in a person's life. In such cases, professional help is required. Certain behavior therapies can be undertaken for eliminating severe anxiety.

Medicines for anxiety disorders are known as anti- anxiety medications. They are not antibiotics. But are different class of drugs that work by maintaining the optimum level of certain neurotransmitters in your brain to stabilise your mood and reduce your anxiety.

DON'T RUSH YOUR SPEECH. SPEAK SLOWLY. FIND OUT SYLLABLES LIKE (KA, PA, MA Etc) WHICH MAKES MORE STAMMERING. PLACE YOUR TONGUE AND OTHER ORAL STRUCTURES IN CORRECT MANNER BEFORE PRODUCING THOSE SENTENCES WHICH STARTS FROM THOSE SYLLABLES.

Addiction - Understanding Its Effects!

Addiction - Understanding Its Effects!

Addiction can be considered as a behavioural change where a craving for something specific intensifies to such an extent that the consequences are ignored. Addiction controls the brain by diverting it in such a way that it registers only pleasure and does not give any importance to other standard drives like motivation and learning. In general, breaking up an addiction is difficult, but it is not impossible and with strong determination, addiction can be broken.

Effects of Addiction
In general, people are subjected to addiction will not have self-control over what they do. If addiction is not treated or diagnosed on time, it may reach harmful proportions. Addiction is not only related to consumption of drugs and alcohol. It may include other habits too, that cannot be controlled. Sometimes even having a particular craving for a fruit or a vegetable can be termed as an addiction. Among other things, the most harmful can be the usage of drugs, sexual pleasures and other effects that over a period of time can become uncontrollable.

How a person can get addicted?
A human brain registers all types of pleasures in the same way they register a joy from a psychoactive drug, sexual encounter, monetary rewards or a satisfying meal. When any of these things happen, the human brain releases a neurotransmitter dopamine in the nerve cells. If these habits become regular, the enzymes will be released in high quantities leading to the addiction problem.

Drugs usage leads to addiction within a short period of time. Consumption of almost all types of drugs, starting from nicotine to heroin leads to a powerful surge of dopamine in the nucleus accambance leading to high addiction. Addiction is not exactly a disease, but it is a condition that can occur at any age. It is likely to occur more during the young age where the required maturity is yet to be gained. So it is advisable to be careful during your adolescent period as this is the time when you are more vulnerable.

There are various medical tests to detect drug use by the person but so fas as Addiction is concern it is a pattern of drug use which affect behaviour, causes withdrawal, tolerance, craving ects. 

Treatment of Addiction
In Acute phase, detoxification is done in which withdrawal symptoms are addressed. Detoxification may last upto 3 to 4 weeks depending upon severity of symptoms and amount of drug use. Later in maintenance phase basically craving, behavioural changes is handled along with insight building psychotherapy is used.

Borderline Personality Disorder - Can Emotional Instability Be A Sign Of It?

Borderline Personality Disorder - Can Emotional Instability Be A Sign Of It?

Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) is such a disorder of personality that causes mood swings, self-esteem issues, impulsive behavior and recurrent self-harm behaviour. It is very difficult to lead a normal life with these varied psychological issues.

People suffering from BPD fear abandonment and loneliness. Yet, they have a tendency of showing mood swings, sudden emotional outburst or anger and hostility. This prevents them from having a long lasting relationship in life. It usually starts affecting the patient's life from early adulthood. It however seems to improve with age. The patient also has distorted self-image. He or she is unclear about what they want from life or what they are in reality. Even minor incidents can trigger intense reactions in people with BPD.

Symptoms of BPD:

  1. Disturbed self-image: People have self-esteem issues, they sometimes love or hate themselves or see themselves as evil. They have unclear goals, views, beliefs and often end up changing their friends, lovers, jobs, sexual identity frequently.
  2. Emotional instability: Intense feelings of rage, sorrow, anger, guilt and emptiness or loneliness are experienced by some sufferers of BPD. Extreme mood swings, lasting for a short span of time, are common in BPD. They may also have issues with their self-image where they cannot place themselves and don't know what they feel about themselves or who they are.
  3. Dysfunctional relationships: It is very difficult to maintain a normal relationship for people with personality disorder. They tend to have quick short-lived relationships and get put off very easily which leads to a lot of heartbreak. Suicidal tendencies and frequent self-harm behaviour like cutting skin using blades/ sharp objects are common. Drugs and alcohol abuse, eating disorders and sexual promiscuity are other forms of self-destructive behaviour commonly encountered in this population. 

Causes for BPD:

  1. Usually it has been found by researchers that it occurs to patients who have had a disturbed childhood. Complex and unpleasant happenings in the childhood may leave a deep impact on the patient's personality, which comes back as a disorder in his or her early adulthood. From mental, physical to sexual abuse in the childhood can lead to this condition in adults.
  2. Besides, researchers have discovered recently that this illness has hereditary links. Some genes may be responsible for BPD. Improper functioning of the brain is also another factor. Especially, the portion of brain that controls emotions might not be functioning properly in co-ordination with other parts of it.

Diagnosis for BPD:

There is no particular clinical test that can diagnose BPD. It can be diagnosed by a series of interactive session with the patient by a psychiatrist.

Love and support from family and friends are crucial for patients suffering from this disease. Prolonged counseling sessions, therapies and the effort to break away from the chronic gloomy thoughts will definitely lead one to a better life.

Hello, My elder brother is addicted to alcohol, he eats Gutkha and also smokes, he has this habits since 10 years now, he is now married for 3 years and have no kids, he became very weak and his head shakes all the time due to weakness we are very much worried and want him to get rid of this bad habits of alcohol, we have asked him to quit this habits but he won't listen. We do not want his wife life to get spoiled because of him. We want him to lead a healthy life. Please help.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

Both of them are orally ingested habits of alcohol and gutkha and so quitting can be a little difficult but can be done at one time. There are no guarantees about stopping one’s addiction. But that does not mean we should not keep at it, over and over again until we succeed. Now it is difficult to give up all by himself because he has become addicted to alcohol and gutkha and there is so much to do. Under such circumstances it is best that he is admitted into a de-addiction center and stay there for at least 6 months and after that he can attend counseling with a professional. Since he has probably tried and found it extremely difficult I suggest he does one of the following: It sounds like he is in an advanced stage of alcoholism and gutkha use and needs admission to a rehabilitation center to ideally help deal with this problem. 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 does not only consume 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 in particular and have made some unhealthy adaptations to somehow cope.

You have to consciously try. Stop saying ye nah I Hota hai. This way you are constantly telling your brain to not to quit smoking. Stop doing negative self talk. I am giving you affirmations that you have to repeat 40 time morning and at night before sleeping in front of the mirror looking into your eyes. 1. I love and accept myself. 2. I am able to stop smoking and I am feeling good. Drink minimum 3 liters of water. Try eating nicotine chewing gum.
