Hello doc. I joined a school as a chemistry teacher. I observed that there are 1-2 students in every class that they start to shiver whenever something is asked to them. And if the teacher is in not good mood and teacher talks to them abt any topic these students can't stop to shiver themselves. Doc. I want to help these children. I teach class 9th to 12th. So, pls help me how can I help them and my nature is polite and most of the time I talk in very low and static voice still they feel like fear. Doc. Pls suggest me what to do?

It is due to their fear of teacher and is anxiety related. If you want to help it is a very good sign as a teacher as the teacher has to see the overall development of a student and not just lecture them alone. YOu call to them to a private room and if possible, in your locale, take them to a beach or park and be very friendly with them and tell them you are there to help them as a friend and not to punish them as a teacher. It is time consuming but canbe simple in some cases. Please Inform me personally by this site

You must go and meet with a counselor immediately and if that person advises that you meet with a doctor you must do so and cooperate to your utmost. Please visit these professionals along with your parents. In the meantime please do the following sincerely because you could resolve the problem better with good cooperation: Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber, nuts, avocado, exercise regularly, eat dark chocolate, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. I suggest you do the opposite of what this depression makes you feel like doing (actually, not doing): you will need to fight this condition. You must become active; stay upright during the daylight time; meet people; never sleep during the day, wake up by 6 am every day, play some active games, especially contact games, do physical exercises, talk to people and join some social clubs, attend Yoga classes etc. Watch sitcoms on TV or comedies and cheer yourself up. Go for excursions in groups, for outings, camps, conferences, and religious conventions. Get a pet dog and spend time training it, exercising it and relating to it. Expose yourself to some sunlight every day, at least, 30 minutes but not in the scorching heat. Whatever happens, please incorporate these three important adaptations in your life: always be responsible, be respectful, and be functional. If you did these three, lots of things will go well in life. Please pray and have faith in God to alleviate your sufferings. Don’t wait for others to help. Use your own motivation, which might be at its lowest, but persevere and win this battle. Above all to be really happy, you need to live in love and for love. Learn all about emotions and how to handle them and that will get you out of the depression rather easily and quickly. A counselor is there only to facilitate you, all the hard word must come from you, and your cooperation with that person is very critical for your success. Be positive every day and learn to be contented with what you have. Do some left brain exercises: it is the happy brain. Here are a few suggestions: shut your left nostril and breathe, move your eyes from right to left and vice versa for at least half a minute at a time, and do callisthenic exercises with some form of counting, regularly. Whatever happens please cooperate with the therapy and do not discontinue until the condition is completely resolved.

Dear lybrate-user, You may be suffering from a treatable mental disorder. May be your father is also suffering from the same disorder. One of the symptoms of this disorder is, what psychiatrist call as apathy or lack of emotions. May be you also have an auditory hallucination, someone in head asking you to do wrong things. Please at the earliest consult a psychiatrist and get diagnosed. Treatment may be long, but it is worth to live a better quality of life. But it is better that you don't take your dad's drugs on your own or start alcohol. They may not be proper treatment for your age and the type of work that you do.

You have a wandering mind probably due to some stress related distraction. You need to identify the stress and when you deal with that with a counselor a lot of focus and good memory will happily return. Please do the following anyway:Daily exercise of at least half an hour is a must. Even if you go to a gym, ask for aerobic and/or callisthenic exercises with whatever else you are doing. A healthy body harbors a healthy mind. With regard to memory, it is very important that your brain and body is ideally rested to be able to recall whatever is required, rather comfortably. Puzzles pose problems to the brain that help it to use new pathways and neurons, which give the brain considerable exercise. It taxes the left brain to use logic to solve the myriad possibilities which other activities do not stimulate. Crosswords are excellent for vocabulary learning and use. Jigsaws and Rubik cube stimulate different permutations to finally settle on the most likely one. Picture completion and anagrams help approach problem solving from several angles. Do Sudoku, and memory co-relation activities and skills. Have a good night?s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber (whole grains, fruits and vegetables), nuts, avocado, eat dark chocolate, consume less of fat and use olive or coconut oil instead, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. You need to check out if you are stronger visual or auditory. The visual is a better mode than the auditory. However, if you combine the two modes, you will get the best concentration. Have a special place of learning, which should be well lit, with soft painted walls, well-ventilated, with no distractions. When you get bored, study by writing. If you repeat learning at least five to seven times, you will apparently remember for a longer time. Sit comfortably but do not slouch. The reading material should be of a fairly large print. Study at small intervals of about 40 minutes and then take a break or change the subject. Short-term memory is a faculty of the left brain, and long-term memory is a feature of the right brain. When people are stressed, they tend to favor the right brain and abandon the left brain, where short-term memory resides. So, it is really very simple: deal with the stress and activate left brain functions. Here are a few suggestions to activate left brain function: shut your left nostril and breathe, move your eyes from right to left and vice versa for at least half a minute at a time, and do callisthenic exercises with some form of counting, regularly. There are some memory enhancing techniques and study methods that your teacher will be able to guide you with. If your home life is full of distractions and stress, it is likely to affect your memory, adversely. In that case, I suggest that you and the family go for counseling too.

You must be able to distinguish between mental disease and mental disorder. Your problem is a mental disorder. Not a mental disease. Therefore no medicines are required. Mental disorder can be successfully treated with the help of awareness, meditation, psychotherapy techniques, life style changes etc. I think two or three counseling sessions and psycho therapy techniques should solve your problem. Let me know if you are willing to undergo counseling sessions and tailor made psycho therapy through mobile. Take care.

How to Deal With Acute Stress Disorder

What is Acute Stress Disorder
Acute stress reaction usually happens when some stressful events occur. Acute usually indicates that the symptoms occur quickly and do not last for a long time. Symptoms, such as anxiety and stress occur when exposed to stressful events. It is believed that acute stress disorder occurs after unexpected crisis like traumatic events, serious accidents, domestic violence, sexual assaults or sudden bereavement. Acute stress reactions are commonly seen in people who have experienced major disasters or terrorist incidents.

Symptoms of Acute Stress Reaction
Symptoms of the condition develop very quickly, within minutes to hours in response to a stressful condition. Some of the symptoms are:
- Anxiety, mood changes, emotional trauma (ups and downs), poor concentration and sleep, irritability and the desire to be alone
- Unpleasant recurrent dreams
- Avoiding situations and people who may cause anxiety and stress
- Emotionally numb
- Nausea, palpitations, headaches, abdominal pain, difficulty in breathing and chest pain are usually caused by the stress hormones like epinephrine.

Management of Acute Stress Disorder
Generally treatment is not required as the symptoms go when the stressful episode is over. Talking to family and friends or understanding the symptoms is helpful. Some people might experience extended symptoms. The following can be done:

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT): This is the therapy where a person can talk to an experienced therapist to understand the patterns and the triggers that charge the problem. The aim of the therapist is to change the way a person thinks and help him avoid the thoughts and be more realistic and calm. Usually when CBT is used for acute stress disorder patients then it is termed as trauma focused CBT.

Counselling: This is usually done when the symptoms are more severe or persistent. It is helpful as it helps to explore the way to deal with the stress and its symptoms. Psychiatrists help by counselling the people and also there are many online resources, which might be helpful.

Being otherwise calm and but at times having an uncontrolled anger outburst for few minutes that you later regret, is suggestive of either a personality problem, impulse control disorder or underlying agitated depression. These are just possibilities which can be evaluated and managed accordingly by consulting a psychiatrist. At times unresolved mental stress may also lead to such symptoms'i would therefore suggest you to consult a psychiatrist for the same. Try mental relaxation exercises like deep breathing for 15-20 minutes, yoga or meditation etc.

Hye, Thanks for the query. If you want to gain some weight, you need to eat more calories than you burn. 1. Eat 5 to 6 meals a day In order to gain weight, you need to start eating 5-6 meals a day. However, it is important that you break these meals into parts, as eating a lot at once may result in indigestion. Also, be sure to include healthy foods in your diet for a healthy weight gain. 2. Weight train at least 3 times a week When you train with weights, your muscles grow. 3. Consume more calories than you burn. Eating calories more than your normal intake may not be easy, but you must do it if you want to stop being skinny. Make sure you don’t do it just by overeating at once, but instead do it gradually over the whole day. 4. Work out your entire body A lot of gym goers usually train only the muscles on their arms, chest and shoulders and this is a grave error. Make sure you workout your entire body for a wholesome weight gain. 5. Load up on protein As informed earlier, you have to consume more calories than your normal intake every day. You can do this by eating foods rich in protein like dairy, meat, eggs, nuts, dry fruits, pulses, sprouts, smoothies, milk shakes etc. 6. Drink your calories It may be tough to meet your calorie requirements by just eating. Drinking milk, lassi, milkshakes or fruit smoothies with little or no sugar can be a great way to load up on the required calories. 7. Try and eat fast (but don’t choke on it) Your body takes some time to give signals of satiety which is why eating fast can help you eat more. 8. Focus on recovery after each workout Stretching exercises, foods rich in carbohydrates can help recover your body significantly. Also, you should aim for 8 hours of sleep as inadequate sleep can cause several problems. 9. Be patient with yourself.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. The duty of the mind is to think. Once you sit at homemand do nothing and let the mind free, naturally it will wander around negative territories. Therefore, I suggest not to sit idle. Engage in education, physicalmactiv7ties, oitdoor and indoor games, entertainment, socialization etc. Creative and busy mind do not wander into negative territory. Take care.

I have lot of pressure from home front. My wife's habit to follow all types of religious stuffs i.E. Vast, astrology, normal baba, ramdev baba. 24 hrs we use to have same discussion on rahu, ketu shukr man gal. I have no intention to stop her but there has to be limit for all these things. When there is no positive responses on discussion on these topics from my side the chapter from Mahabharat starts at home. Really fed up.

If you don't respond positively, then how do you respond to her? She can pursue any interest of her choice. And so can you. You just need to talk to her assertively that her hobby is not something that you understand, so cannot participate in discussions. Find some legitimate excuse to move out of that situation, but don't forget to show and tell her that she's still a likeable person and you enjoy her company. Offer other activities that you both can do together. In Mahabharata, 2 people are needed to fight. If you don't fight then she will have to back of. Remember Gandhiji and talk sweetly and firmly with your wife. Soon she will leave you to do your own things in peace. Take care.

Alcoholism is alcohol addiction. If you're ready to stop drinking and willing to get the support you need, you can recover from alcoholism and alcohol abuse no matter how bad the addiction or how powerless you feel. The first step in treating alcoholism 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 alcoholism. Therefore, you need to stick to the treatment plan and cooperate with your psychiatrist / psychologist. Take care.

You must never stop medication without the doctor's advice. Also. Ideally, you should be on medication and counseling and if you are episode-free for three years, you can be weaned off of it but always with the approval of the doctor. Counseling is very important together​ with medication.

Try to start your day early in the morning. Write down the things that you want to do during the day, and follow that routine. Have healthy food and on time. Have plenty of water. You need some physical exercise, like walk, jog, run, cycling, gym, yoga. Choose whatever you like and do it. This will help you in releasing your stress and when the body is tired it will help you in having a good sleep. It appears that you are having lots of tension/stress. Please try to analyse the causes and contributing factors of your stress. Try to search for best options to reduce this stress. Share your emotional burden with family and friends whom you trust. If all this does not help then talk to a counsellor who will help you in understanding and managing stress which will result in you having peace of mind and getting required sleep. All the best.
