What Is Asperger's Syndrome?

What Is Asperger's Syndrome?

Asperger's Syndrome has recently come under the umbrella of Autism Spectrum Disorder. This syndrome usually affects the social skills of the patient, most heavily. The patient may seem normal and even intelligent at first glance. But on closer interaction, several social skill problems will come to the fore including an obsessive focus on certain topics and issues. Repetitive behaviour is also a part of this disease.

Let us find out more about Asperger's Syndrome:

  • Symptoms: The symptoms usually begin to show up early on in one's childhood. The patient will not be able to make eye contact while speaking with others. Also, a perfectly normal person may seem inordinately shy and reserved during social interactions. This awkwardness may come to the fore in the form of looking for expression cues on other people's faces and even the body language. The patient may not be a very happy and lively soul, with hardly a smile to crack at the funniest of jokes. The lack of emotions or the emotionally numb state is also a major giveaway of the condition. Other symptoms may include a strong aversion towards change in food habits and routine.
  • Diagnosis: The diagnosis is usually done by mental health specialists like a developmental paediatrician, a psychiatrist, a psychologist or even a paediatric neurologist. These specialists can put the child through a variety of tests that will study the neurological health as well as the speech and emotional behaviour of the child.
  • Educating the Parent: Once the diagnosis has been done, the parents of the patient will have to appraised of the condition and its implications. The symptoms and treatment will have to be duly discussed even as the parents are put through training and therapy to learn techniques with which they can help the child in progressing along more normal lines. The therapy will also help the parents deal with the challenge of living with someone suffering from this condition.
  • Treatment: There are varied forms of treatment that aim at fixing the specific areas and symptoms that the patient is learning to live with. Social skills training, speech and language therapy, CBT or Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and other forms of treatment can help the child overcome many symptoms that come from this condition.

In the course of the treatment, it is important for the child, parent and therapist concerned to realise that there is no single approach that can be applied to all patients suffering from Asperger's Syndrome. Individual care and therapy will be required for individual cases. At the same time, most of the skills will need to be repeated at home so that the child takes them more seriously.

Have tried a lot to quit smoking but can't quit. Please tell me the fastest way to avoid smoking and tell medication as well if possible. Thank You.

General Physician,
Best age to stop smoking is before 40 ,In fact do not start all Only by using strong will power and avoiding all situations where you feel like smoking, chewing tobacco or drinking or using drugs/ weed, avoiding friends who smoke and diverting mind by reading or chewing a gum, like NICORETTE and taking a walk when you crave for a smoke can all help. You can chew Nicorette gum which is nicotine replacement. There are medicines available. Which can be prescribed if asked personally Cigarette smoking is a leading preventable cause of mortality. It kills more than 60 lakh people worldwide every year. More than 50% of regular smokers would invariably die from tobacco-related illnesses which includes heart attack, cancer or asthmatic lung diseases. Best age to stop smoking is before 40 31st May is “World No Tobacco Day” Quitting smoking before the age of 40 is associated with larger decline in premature death than stopping it at a later date. Best age therefore to stop smoking is before 40. However, stopping smoking even after the age of 50 is still associated with lower risk of death as compared to those who continue to smoke. Even in smokers aged 80 years or more, quitting smoking appears to reduce some mortality.

Is permanent cure of schizophrenia possible? If person stop medicine when he or she is normal and stable Is there is a chance to happen again?

MBBS, MD Psychiatry, DNB Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Nagpur
Schizophrenia is treatable disorder just like diabetes and any metabolic disease. It requires a course of medications initially to bring severe symptoms under control and then stabilise with lesser doses. A maintenance therapy of minimal dose might be required to prevent relapses. This maintenance therapy (in a patient who has successfully achieved remission of symptoms with regular medications) may range from 2-5 years. In about 1/3 rd cases of frequent relapses or severer symptoms maintenance therapy may be required for even a longer time.

Normally marijuana or ganja does not have such results but it is commonly seen that people selling them lace it with chemicals to give a bigger kick and is very harmful. Now since you have left it, rest assured, all effects will be reversed. So. Do not worry. There is no problem now.

It is in your hands. You are wantingly going to depressive status. If you want to come out of this status. You will come defenetely. Everything in your hands. Aloneness is a dangerous thing. If we want to be enjoy aloneness we need very good maturity. You do not have that capability. As per your age. You need very good friendly. Share and spend your feelings with friends. Make good friendly relations. Better to be busy. Learn new things in your life. Better to change the place or visit new places. Plan about your studies. Do the work properly. If think repeatedly about past incidents it have a chance to forget the present situations. So do not think about past incidents. Feel always comfortable and every movement of life. Best of luck.

Dear, depression is usually treated with a combination of medicines, psychotherapy, exercise and meditation. Depression is manageable with all these steps. I think you should tgry meditation, exercise and psychotherapy. I think two or three counseling sessions and psycho therapy techniques should solve her problem. Let me know if she is willing to undergo counseling sessions and tailor made psycho therapy through mobile. Take care.

I get angry and get tensed for small thing and I think the things which happens surrounding me are in negative way can I know it why? And I need a solution to overcome it.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
To be a safe and predictable person for those around you at work and at home, it is essential that you are able to maintain your composure when you feel like your buttons' are being pushed. This strength will help you to achieve your goals in business as well as your goals for your personal relationships. 1. Share negative emotions only in person or on the phone. E-mails, answering machine messages, and notes are too impersonal for the delicate nature of negative words. What feels like a bomb on paper may feel like a feather when delivered in person. 2. Pepper your responses with the phrase" I understand" this phrase will support your goals when the tension is high and you need to find common ground to form compromises or agreements with the other party. 3. Take notice when you feel threatened by what someone is saying to you. Resist the temptation to defend yourself or to" shut down" the other person's communication. It will take this kind of discipline to become an open, trusting communicator. 4. Practice making requests of others when you are angry. It is often much more useful to make a request than to share your anger. For example, if the babysitter is driving you crazy by leaving dirty dishes in the sink, it is better to make a request of them than to let your anger leak out in other ways such as by becoming more distant. 5. Try repeating the exact words that someone is saying to you when they are in a lot of emotional pain or when you disagree with them completely. This mirroring technique can keep both the speaker and the listener'cantered' in a difficult conversation, especially when the attitude of the person doing the mirroring is to gain understanding of a different point of view. 6. Take responsibility for your feelings to avoid blaming others. Notice when'blame shifting' begins to leak into your speech" I feel angry when you are twenty minutes late and you don't call me" is much better than" you make me so mad by being late.

Me and my husband are newly married not even a month. His brother seems very interfering to Me. This is the first weekend we are together and we have some time to spend. He has already made plans to visit us along with his family I was so pissed off when I found out. It was a hectic working week for me and I just set up our house. And was waiting for the weekend to relax with my husband. My husband also does not find this bothering. It seems my life post marriage is no. More mine and I cannot even make my own plans. It was better before marriage and I could hang out on weekends whenever I wanted to. I don't know if I am over reacting or is it something I need to seriously discuss with husband. I need some alone time with him as we need to develop some emotional closeness. His family does not get this. I don't know why? If I say something I will become the bad person here. What to do?

Dear Lybrate User, There needs to be a clear communication between you and your husband. Please understand that post marriage life is different from being a single. While being single definitely no nobody interferes and you are not answerable to anyone but yourself. While being married, though one can be non - answerable to the other Only when both the partners are okay with the situation and both are acting out as adults. Definitely you are right in bringing emotional closeness with husband and spending time with him alone to create bond. This would require clear communication from your part along with what we call - I Statements. Whenever you are communicating, start with - I Feel" ex. I will feel good if we will spend some time together alone. I think it would be wonderful to spend time together alone by going somewhere or at home. If someone asks you for weekend, would you please ask them to come next week or month. Or I request you to not make any plans for weekend with someone else. Or Do you have any plans for weekend. Let's plan together" Take your husband in confidence that you are with him and your intention is only to create more bonding with him. Males prefer their families first and they are very sensitive towards tjeir family. So drive this thing in a very slow gradual and sensitive manner. You can also make him understand that after marriage a guy's family becomes extended family and Husband n wife are now the Family. Create a balance between your wishes and plans and his. Divine Blessings!

9 Steps To De-Stress Yourself!

9 Steps To De-Stress Yourself!

Are you stressed out lately and not being able to overcome it for a long time? With the holiday season approaching, you are bound to feel worse as your stress is bound to get in the way of celebrations. Winter is a promising time for celebrating, travelling and having fun, and you cannot let your patience and stress ruin it. Here are some steps following which you will be able to cope with your stress and anxiety, so that you can enjoy

Start with a clear mind:

  1. Realize that some things are just beyond your control. This is a tough thing to do, but you have to accept it just like the fact that you cannot control rain, sun, and the actions of people. Fighting against something beyond your control will make you stressed out and miserable.
  2. Realize that there are things, which are in your control. Focus on them and get a firm grip on them. The power of controlling your actions and reactions lies only in your hands. You can also influence your state of consciousness, your physiological responses, and mental processes.
  3. Learn to surrender and seek acceptance. Instead of resisting against the aspects which you cannot control, surrender to them. This does not make you weak, nor a loser. It is just accepting that you cannot change certain things.
  4. Be mindful. Stop for a moment, and try observing your internal experience, without any form of judgement. Try to become more conscious and aware of what goes on inside you.
  5. Take charge of your thoughts. The aim here is not to ignore and deny certain thoughts, but to transform them after analyzing and acknowledging them.
  6. Utilize your breath. It is an effective tool, which remains with you forever and connects your body and mind. Deep, slow breathing can be more beneficial than you could ever imagine. Keep inhaling and exhaling till you feel relaxed. This is excellent for calming your nervous system.
  7. Look at the brighter side of life, no matter how hard it may be. Focusing on positive things might make you discover a solution for your stressful condition.
  8. Take proper care of yourself. Self care is important for eliminating stress. You should take regular showers, eat balanced diet, exercise regularly, and carry out pleasurable activities.
  9. It is important for you to abstain from comparing yourself with others. Comparisons can cause distorted perceptions and increase stress. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a psychologist.
