Dear , Greetings! Anxiety is at core of IBS and resultant constipation and piles. Physically you need to add running to your schedule. For anxiety here is a short technique to help you. But along with this technique you require therapeutic intervention to alleviate the cause of chronic anxiety. Hypnotherapy (child and life regression) might help you too depending upon the psychologist's perspective. Technique- breathing. Whenever you feel anxiety take deep breaths. Inhale with count of 4-Hold for 2 seconds-Exhale with count 8. Exhale = 2 Inhale. This technique helps in reducing anxiety. Another method, try Progressive Muscle Relaxation technique. For faster results twice a day is recommended.

How to Deal with Stress of Raising a Child with Special Needs?

MBBS
General Physician, Jammu
How to Deal with Stress of Raising a Child with Special Needs?

Parenting in the recent past has become extremely stressful than what it used to be a couple of generations earlier. This stress has increased manifold if the child has special needs. Be it a physical or an emotional disability, the caretaker has a lot of additional responsibilities when raising a child with special needs. Also bringing up such a child is extremely rewarding in the long run, when you see them accomplish things in life, for which your contribution is far greater than in normal children.

Read on to for some guidance on how to manage a child with special need.

  1. Understand the problem your child is facing: The problem may become evident prenatally, at birth, or sometimes it will reveal itself as the child grows up. Whatever the case, once identified, understand the various issues it brings along. This is true especially in case of syndromes like Down's or learning disabilities, which have more implications. Review the medical history thoroughly with the doctor to understand the child better and play your role better.
  2. Supportive community: There are a lot of supportive communities, which will consist of similar people and so a lot of mutual support and help would be available. The emotional components of empathy and sympathy play an equally important role here.
  3. Let’s face it: Caring for such a child is an ongoing process. The sooner this fact is accepted, the easier the journey will be. The children need to be reassured that they are not alone, they are differently perfect, they need to forgive themselves, to not be hard on themselves, and not to lose heart. The parent and the caretakers also need to realize that it is like a never-ending marathon and bracing up for this long haul is very important. There might be times when mistakes happen, tough decisions are taken, and you have to be hard on the child and yourself. However, don’t lose heart and encourage both the child and yourself. It is okay for these slips to happen, just accept them.
  4. Live for today: On a daily basis, forgive small wrongs both for your child and yourself. Trust your instincts, celebrate the little wins, don’t compare your child to anybody else, and protect him from getting bullied. The child needs to be told that you are unique and special and to set your own pace and compete against yourself. Work on your sense of humor and get professional help for both the child’s needs and your additional responsibilities.

While the stress of caring for a child with special needs is quite high, these are very small and simple ways to deal with the stress of raising a child with special needs. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a general physician.

I have stammering problem since a long time. When I am getting nervous or meeting someone for the first time then it happens so badly. So please give me a permanent solution for this problem?

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Chennai
Stammering is typically recognised by a tense struggle to get words out. This makes it different from the normal non-fluency we all experience which includes hesitations and repetitions. Commonly it involves repeating or prolonging sounds or words, or getting stuck without any sound (silent blocking). Sometimes people put in extra sounds or words. Often people lose eye contact. Some people who stammer talk their way round difficult words so that you may not realise they stammer at all. This avoidance of words, and avoidance of speaking in some or many situations, is an important aspect of stammering. Stammering varies tremendously from person to person and is highly variable for the person who stammers who may be fluent one minute and struggling to speak the next.

Loss of interest, appetite, anxiety, worthlessness, social isolation indicates what?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Loss of interest, appetite, anxiety, worthlessness, social isolation indicates what?
All these are indications of depression, probably due to age and lack of occupation. He needs to feel worthy and may need to talk about a lot of things about his past. He just needs a good listener and something useful to do. He could also do with some travelling and spiritual pursuits. He needs to meet with his peers and socialize some. What about his wife? if she is around, they could visit relatives together, both in town and those living outside. He may find that he is useless in the present scenario of this fast moving world, and that he is insignificant. He may be encouraged to read; and where it is possible, if his health permits, to do some child care with his grand-kids. He can also find some role in any social work organization too. If these are not followed, he may waste away his twilight years and age faster than normal.

Counsellor cannot suggest medications. I can understand your husband is having mood disorder and also dependent on diazepam, which will worsen mood symptoms, also produce cognitive decline (early onest dementia), and personality changes. You need to consult a psychiatrist and give him appropriate antidepressants at the same time gradually weaning him off diazepam and giving alternate safe medication. All the best.

My aunt is very sweet and loving. But on the contrary she gets violent even at 60 and hardly can control her anger. At times she gets very depressed about life and actually it is increasing day by day and she keeps ruminating over the past and recalling the past unpleasant memories. She feels alienated but it is not so. It is in her thought process. Everyone in the family loves n cares for her but she feels insecure. And one thing lastly she gets panicky about petty matters.

Your aunt is becoming old now and life becomes more difficult at this age. It becomes difficult for a person, to see that the body and mind is getting older. Older people have lesser patience. Because of this she might be feeling frustrated and sad. She might be having some health issues, which may be making her insecure and angry. Encourage her to talk about her past life experiences and when she is ruminating over it, validate her feelings. Try to understand the situations from her view point. All she needs is more love and respect. Give her responsibilities that she can shoulder. Involve her in family decisions. Make her feel important. Talk to her about "letting go" of things so that she will not keep worrying unnecessarily. Encourage her to pursue some hobbies or activities she could not undertake till now. Encourage her to have her own social circle. She needs to understand that if she becomes more positive and flexible about life, she can still enjoy life to the fullest and ultimately her anger will reduce.

Dear Lybrate user There is no SIMPLE way to cure stress and depression. First of all, Depression is a medical illness which requires thorough investigation and understanding so that underlying cause can be treated. For stress, ideally stress management is the trick. This entails, understanding the source of your stress, identifying it, accepting it and working on methods to cope with it. I would recommend a stress management direction for you. You can begin by modifying your lifestyle (kicking any bad habits) and adopting healthy ones. This is a slow and life long process. And will not CURE stress. Instead just help cope with it.

Hi lybrate-user, if you really want to cure your anxiety forever, you need to have a long term treatment plan that takes into consideration your anxiety symptoms, what you're suffering from, how badly you're suffering, and your specific anxiety disorder. First and foremost, don't let your anxiety cause you to make poor decisions about anxiety treatments. The reality is that most" rapid" treatments don't work. You'll find many people that claim that they have an extract or a medicine that can cure your anxiety immediately, and unfortunately it's never the case - it's people taking advantage of you in your time of need, and hoping the placebo effect will be enough to cure your anxiety. Even prescription medications have a" false" component. Prescription medicines can give you some help with anxiety, but that help is only temporary, and your mind and body can actually become dependent on these medications. As soon as you stop taking them, your anxiety may not only come back - it could even be worse than before. Curing your anxiety is a process - it's a process that can happen, for everyone, but those that hope they can get instant anxiety help are going to be disappointed, and possibly taken advantage of. Your symptoms define your anxiety if you really want to cure your anxiety forever, you need to have a long term treatment plan that takes into consideration your anxiety symptoms, what you're suffering from, how badly you're suffering, and your specific anxiety disorder. Imately effective treatment. Setting up a long term plan - making realistic goalsi possible to reduce your anxiety every day. There are countless tips to learn to manage it. But you need to do two things: you need to make sure that you're giving yourself realistic goals. You need to make it a long term plan. You can get anxiety help now - help that will genuinely reduce your experience with anxiety. But it will only reduce it so much. You'll still need to keep at it, and commit to it in a way that will guarantee short and long term results. Realistic goals will ensure that you don't give up. You're bound to have setbacks, because life isn't stress free. A long term plan will also make sure that you keep at it - you'll not only have something to do next, you'll also know what to do next. For example, let's look at several strategies you can do right now that will reduce your anxiety: start jogging jogging isn't just for your health. Jogging releases endorphins, which are neurotransmitters that improve mood. It also tires muscles, and there is evidence that extra energy in muscles becomes converted to a feeling of anxiety. Sleep better getting more sleep will fight anxiety right away. Far too many people are allowing themselves to be sleep deprived, but sleep is one of the most important and easy tools your mind has for coping with stress. Breathing training many anxiety symptoms, particularly for those with anxiety attacks, are a result of inadequate breathing techniques. Anxiety can actually train your body to breathe poorly, leading to hyperventilation and a variety of related symptoms. Exposure therapy exposure is a cognitive behavioral technique that trains you to get used to things that used to cause you anxiety. For example, if you often get anxiety when you feel dizzy, you spin around in a chair and use a variety of techniques to calm your mind. Lifestyle changes many lifestyle changes that you will need to make in order to live with anxiety also require long term changes. For example, who you spend time with may need to change, as will how you react at your workplace. These strategies take longer, and require more effort and planning on your part. They're also not immediately successful, and there are often setbacks. Realistic goals and an effective and healthy plan can reduce the effects of these setbacks. You'll also need to be okay with admitting to yourself that you have an anxiety problem that needs to be solved. If you continue to try to fight the truth about your anxiety, you'll struggle to overcome it. Anxiety and stress are very real problems that affect people every day, and there's nothing wrong with you if you suffer from them. As soon as you can come to terms with your anxiety, you'll be on the right path towards treating it. Consult for psychotherapy for anxiety.

Alcohol dependence is associated with significant physical, mental and social problems. Physically, there can be liver failure, jaundice, vomiting of blood, passing blood in stools, stomach ulcers, damage to nerves of the body, swelling of legs, fluid collection in abdomen, and many more. Mentally, there is irreversible brain damage, worsening of anxiety or depression, triggering of psychosis and mood disorders, dementia, etc. From a social point of view, there may be isolation from neighbors or family, increased abusive behavior to children or spouses, legal problems, accidents, etc. Anti craving medications are available which will help to reduce the craving. Consult a psychiatrist with experience in deaddiction.

Dear Lybrate user, Welcome to Lybrate. Opium 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 it any mental disorder that I get angry quickly and start to scold shout and after some times I regret for my behaviour and started to crying lonely, I get tears after watching any kind of little emotional scene . Some people call me that I am getting mad and need counselling.Please tell.

M.S. Counselling and Psychotherapy
Psychologist, Bangalore
Dear lybrate user, you are not getting mad and you do not have any mental disorder. But what is happening is, your suppressed grief and sad feelings are coming to surface, the moment you see someone in pain. When you cry after watching an emotional scene, you are actually not crying for the characters in the movie/serials, but you are letting your own pain an outlet, by crying. You are experiencing your suppressed pain and hence you get emotional at the smallest trigger, and start crying. Your friends are right in saying that counselling will help you. Please consult a counsellor. The counsellor will help you to get in touch with your own suppressed sad feelings and and will help you to let it out. Once you do this you will have better emotional control. Take care.

As you have mentioned your mother have depressive features. I assume that you might be having little clear picture of what depressive symptoms are.
