I am not feeling well, I have  fever little bit body pain cough what should I do.
It could be viral. Very common in this season. Have plenty of fluids, rest, do betadine gargles, take steam. For fever you can take antipyretics like pcm. Hopefully it should improve in a week. If not consult a physician.

My mom is having a stress problem due to which she is unable to sleep properly at night.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
My mom is having a stress problem due to which she is unable to sleep properly at night.
She needs to talk to a counselor regarding the stress. In the meantime, she can do the following: In her case particularly, do not sleep during the day; don’t even lie down. Go for regular exercise (breathing through her nostrils only) at a fixed time (at about 6 am) every day, whether she sleeps or not. She must develop this habit of sleeping by 10 pm latest every night and wake up at a uniform time by 6 am every morning, even if she does not get sleep. If she does not get sleep, just let her lie down and if she has a bed lamp (or you could get her one) let her lie down and read something light but not exciting. Her eyes will tire and she will fall asleep. If she likes she may also put on the light and soft music with the sleep function on. Depending on whether she is a visual or auditory person, she may watch TV in a lying down position until she feels sleepy. Have a warm bath before going to bed (for some people a cold bath at night seems to induce sleep! If she is one of them, please do so). Place the head side of her bed in a North-South position. The room must be as dark as possible and there should be no electronic items that give off even a light LED glow. There must be ample ventilation in the room. Avoid strong odors, except lavender, on her body or in the room, or on her sheets and clothes. There should not be any live plants in her bedroom. Sleep with the lightest of clothes or without any clothing. When lying down to sleep, lie down on her left ear as much as possible. Do not sleep directly under an overhead fan. She must eat a good breakfast, a fairly light lunch, and an early dinner, which should be a very light meal. Whatever she eats in the other meals, have only a pure carbohydrate meal at night with any vegetables, and preferably before 8 pm. Do not drink too much liquids after or near about dinner time. When lying down to sleep she may use the 4-7-8 breathing pattern of sleep inducement i. E. Breathe in for four counts through your nostril only, hold for 7 counts, and exhale with a whoosh sound, through your mouth only, for 8 counts. Repeat this four times in the morning and just before she sleeps at night. If she knows Emotional Freedom Technique or EFT (check this out either on YouTube or Google), then please practice this too for sleep induction. Self-hypnosis and slow relaxation techniques, at night will be tremendously useful. Acupuncture or acupressure will both be very useful too. Pray last thing at night before she sleeps.

Obsessive-Compulsive Behaviour: How You Can Manage it?

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Delhi
Obsessive-Compulsive Behaviour: How You Can Manage it?

Obsessive compulsive behaviour is form of anxiety disorder in which unreasonable thoughts and fears, which are obsessions that lead one to do repetitive compulsive behaviour. Root causes of obsessive compulsiveness are complex and often deep seated. The underlying emotional states may include the fear of unknown, not being in control, negative outcomes, failure, rejection, shame, annihilation or embarrassment

Signs and symptoms of OCD
Most people with obsessive-compulsive disorder have both obsessions and compulsions, but some people experience just one or the other.

Obsessive thoughts:

Common obsessive thoughts in OCD include:

  • Fear of being contaminated by germs or dirt or contaminating others
  • Fear of losing control and harming yourself or others
  • Intrusive sexually explicit or violent thoughts and images
  • Excessive focus on religious or moral ideas
  • Fear of losing or not having things you might need
  • Order and symmetry: the idea that everything must line up “just right”
  • Superstitions; excessive attention to something considered lucky or unlucky

Compulsive behaviors:

Common compulsive behaviors in OCD include:

  • Excessive double-checking of things, such as locks, appliances, and switches
  • Repeatedly checking in on loved ones to make sure they’re safe
  • Counting, tapping, repeating certain words, or doing other senseless things to reduce anxiety
  • Spending a lot of time washing or cleaning
  • Ordering or arranging things “just so”
  • Praying excessively or engaging in rituals triggered by religious fear

You can eliminate mild obsessive compulsion easily, whereas, severe obsessive compulsiveness, require support of medical and mental health professionals.

When you start pondering or obsessing over an activity, you must try to stop the negative pattern, and provide control and security. A good anchor code stops an obsessive thought pattern and provides fact-based security for new action. One can get it under control and recover from it, however at the present, there is no cure. It is a potential that will always be there in the background, even when one's life is no longer affected by it.

The treatment for obsessive compulsive behaviour depends on the how much the condition is affecting the daily life of the person. There are two main treatments, firstly Cognitive-behavioural therapy, which involves graded exposure and response prevention and the second being medication. The cognitive behaviour therapy emboldens one to face one's fear and let the obsessive thoughts occur without neutralising them with compulsions. In second case, treatment is by medication to control one's symptoms by altering the balance of chemicals in brain.

Obsessive compulsive behaviour that has a relatively minor impact on one's daily life is usually treated with a short course of cognitive behavioural therapy. Cognitive behavioural therapy involves exposure and response prevention that is used to help people with all severities. People with mild to moderate behaviour usually need about 10 hours of therapist treatment, combined with exercises to be done at home between sessions. Those with moderate to severe symptoms may need a more intensive course of therapy that lasts longer than 10 hours.

During the sessions, one works with therapist to break down the problems into their separate parts like physical feelings, thoughts and actions. The therapist encourages you to face your fear and let the obsessive thoughts occur without putting them right. It requires motivation and one should start with situations that cause the least anxiety first. These exposure exercises need to take place many times a day, and need to be done for one to two hours without engaging in compulsions to undo them. People with Obsessive compulsive behaviour find that when they confront their anxiety without carrying the compulsion, the anxiety goes away. Each time, the chances of anxiety reduces and last for a shorter period of time. 

Once you have one exposure task, you can move on to a more difficult task, until you have overcome all of the situations that make you anxious.  It is important to remember it can take several months before a treatment has a noticeable effect. It is extremely vital to remember that no one is perfect, nor can anyone recover perfectly.  Even in well maintained recoveries, people can occasionally mess up and forget what they are supposed to be doing. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a psychiatrist.

You are over-reacting due to fear. Your imagination probably runs wild with the over-sensitivity to the prick. It is really a minor pain (literally ?just a pin-prick?) and can never cause you any harm or severe pain. If you convince yourself in the brain that that is what it is, it will never feel so bad. Some nurses are so adept at giving these injections that you will never even feel it! So, change your mind and the injection will be a different experience. There are so many treatments that must be administered through the needle that you cannot really avoid. If you continue to react like this then you could develop hysteria to a simple medical administration.

She is into a sadness-related depression. She must immediately meet with a counselor and seek professional help. It is not to her good to avoid people anyway and must be involved in social activities as much as possible. She may refuse but you must insist and make her involved. In the meantime let her do the following sincerely because at her age she 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 she does the opposite of what this depression makes her feel like doing (actually, not doing): she will need to fight this condition. She 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 herself to some sunlight every day, at least 30 minutes but not in the scotching heat. Whatever happens, she needs to incorporate these three important adaptations in her life: always be responsible, be respectful, and be functional. If she did these three, lots of things will go well in life. Have her pray and have faith in God to alleviate her sufferings. She should not wait for others to help, eventually. She should use her own motivation, which might be at its lowest, but if she perseveres she will win this battle. Above all she should be really happy; she needs to live in love and for love: find someone to love and to love her back. If she loves herself adequately, she will never do harm to herself. Let her be positive always and learn to do everything possible to invest into herself. Life is extremely precious and because the depression, which is a mood disorder, makes her feel like giving up she must still persevere. Learn all about emotions and how to handle them and that will get her out of the depression rather easily and quickly. A counselor is there only to facilitate her, all the hard word must come from her, and her cooperation with that person is very critical for her success. She can 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.

My son is 13yrs old, and he is not taking anythings seriously and even not interested in his studies all time joking and he feels all things are easy in life please help me how to make him understand.

M. Phil Clinical Psychology

How is his performance in school? how is his behavior otherwise? at 13 your child is at a very fragile age and will need to be handled carefully. Make sure that you show keen interest in activities that he likes. If possible, participate in them. This will help you establish a rapport with him and he' s more likely to take you seriously if he sees that you' re trying to understand him.

Autism

Autism is the most common condition in a group of developmental disorders known as the autism spectrum disorders (asds). Autism is characterized by impaired social interaction, problems with verbal and nonverbal communication, and unusual, repetitive, or severely limited activities 

Autistic children have difficulties with social interaction, problems with verbal and nonverbal communication, and repetitive behaviors and narrow obsessive interests. 

Children with autism may fail to respond to their name and often avoid eye contact with other people. They have difficulty interpreting what others are thinking or feeling because they can’t understand social cues, such as tone of voice or facial expressions, and don’t watch other people’s faces for clues about appropriate behavior. They often lack empathy and engage in repetitive movements such as rocking and twirling, they also tend to start speaking later than other children and may refer to themselves by name instead of “i” or “me.” children with autism don’t know how to play interactively with other children. Some speak in a sing-song voice about a narrow range of favorite topics, with little regard for the interests of the person to whom they are speaking. Many children with autism have a reduced sensitivity to pain, but are abnormally sensitive to sound, touch, or other sensory stimulation. These unusual reactions may contribute to behavioral symptoms.

Its quite normal to feel sad and feel depressed sometimes. Accept the reality. Most of the times people recover normalcy over time as the routine duties resume. So have faith and share your feelings with people who are close to you and get back to regular rhythm slowly.

You seemed to have stayed long enough in this marriage to have a two year old baby! If you are so depressed please meet with a counselor and if the depression is due entirely to the marriage then meet with a marriage counselor and get some guidelines as to how to manage with this relationship without getting depressed. If they advice you against the marriage are you willing to divorce this man? You must be clear about all these matters should a decision like that has to be made. About earning money, it is possible to do your own business in an MLM type venture. If you wish to know more details please contact me. There is no problem without a solution.

I have panic disorder for the period of two years. Please suggests suitable medications (also suggest some natural antidepressants)

Hypnotherapist, DCS, BSIC, Advanced Trainee of Transactional Analysis, Advanced Skills in Counselling
Psychologist,
It is not good to have panic and it is possible to get over it. In counselling, panic is reduced gradually by helping the client to learn to calm down, see the problem in small chunks and also work on the thoughts that accompany panic and anxiety. If you feel incompetent or inadequate in certain situations, then you can decide not to do it at all if you can afford to or you can arm yourself with new skills to feel in control and confident. Eg. If you have to drive your car to work and you don' t know how to drive, then you attend classes to learn driving. Please click on private chat if you are interested to take the discussion further.

Good Morning, Medication treatment for depression needs to be intensively monitored and the dose titrated up for optimal outcomes and therefore you need to visit with your psychiatrist when she needs to be seen by one. Also your mother may need an increase in the dose of medications and therefore you may need to contact your psychiatrist as soon as possible.

MA
Psychologist, Pune
Hi, I am glad to hear that you have a habit that you see as life threatening. That is the first step towards solving a problem. Set small goals which is easier to accomplish. If you are a chain smoker then restrict your smoking to half the amount for a day. After two weeks reduce the consumption by half again. Find substitutes for smoking.

Dear lybrate user...What I understand from your question is that you masturbate once a month but still you are having ejaculation early in the morning. As per the normal body physiology, formation of sperms and ejaculate in the body is a continuous process and there is a limit to storage in the body. Once the amount of semen exceeds the limit, it is ejaculated out and it happens whenever there is some erotic stimulation which can be by sight or smell or touch or by any of our senses. Masturbation once a month is just not enough to get rid of the amount that is formed in a month in the body and thus early in the morning when the REM sleep that is the shallow sleep is more, a person gets erection in dreams and may ejaculate. So my advice to you would be that either you get rid of it voluntarily or just take a chill pill and relax and let the body do it for you. You do not need to worry but just accept. Although still if you want than there are medications which may help you deal with your problem. Take care

Hi lybrate-user, Its you and only you who can change the habit and lifestyle and for this you need to take necessary actions. It is important to get yourself busy in productive things and make a schedule to organize your life better. Apart from that I would like you to practice Mindful Breathing The primary goal of mindful breathing is simply a calm, nonjudging awareness, allowing thoughts and feelings to come and go without getting caught up in them. Sit comfortably, with your eyes closed and your spine reasonably straight. Bring your attention to your breathing. Imagine that you have a balloon in your tummy. Every time you breathe in, the balloon inflates. Each time you breathe out, the balloon deflates. Notice the sensations in your abdomen as the balloon inflates and deflates. Your abdomen rising with the in-breath, and falling with the out-breath. Thoughts will come into your mind, and that’s okay, because that’s just what the human mind does. Simply notice those thoughts, then bring your attention back to your breathing. Likewise, you can notice sounds, physical feelings, and emotions, and again, just bring your attention back to your breathing. You don’t have to follow those thoughts or feelings, don’t judge yourself for having them, or analyse them in any way. It’s okay for the thoughts to be there. Just notice those thoughts, and let them drift on by, bringing your attention back to your breathing. Whenever you notice that your attention has drifted off and is becoming caught up in thoughts or feelings, simply note that the attention has drifted, and then gently bring the attention back to your breathing. It's okay and natural for thoughts to enter into your awareness, and for your attention to follow them. No matter how many times this happens, just keep bringing your attention back to your breathing. Consult me for therapy.

My voice was very good. I use to smoke but quit 2 months back. But if I speak continuously even 10 mnts also. My voice getting rough. Please do the needful.

MBBS, MD - Psychiatry, Clinical Elective

Quitting smoking is not supposed to be related to hoarseness of voice. But, during the initial period after quitting you may experience throat irritation and increased cough. If that is what you have, you can relax. Otherwise consult ENT specialist for change of voice.

Dear Sachin. Welcome to lybrate. Depression related to lost love is pretty common. You have to accept the fact. Accepting the fact that the lost love will not come back, is the first step towards cure. Accept it. Also accept that you can do nothing about it. Slowly your emotions will die down. Don't worry. It is a matter of two or three weeks. Consult a psychologist online for counseling if need be. Take care.

Dear lybrate-user, it is good that you wants stop smoking, we are destroying our health by smoking normal human takes oxygen into lungs 12 -15 times per minute (12 - 15 breaths) lungs mixes oxygen in blood and it purifies our blood, by smoking we are mixing not only oxygen adding and mixing bad elements like nicotine etc. In oxygen, that spoils our blood and our body all organs like lungs, heart, kidney etc. In our body. How to quit: by willingness and willpower" where there is a will there is a way" reduce one by one day by day.
