Your panic and anxiety are good enough reasons to cause all your sexual problems. Nearly 99% of sexual problems are psychological in nature. Often because you may get over-excited you may discharge early. You can then do it again and this time around the performance will be delayed and stretch for a longer time. You can even attempt it a third time after reasonable breaks of at least 20 minutes or so. You can also learn to curb your excitement and willfully delay ejaculation. You must be cooperative for any system of intervention to work for you, more so if the cause is psychological. I advise you to meet with a sexologist and learn how your anxiety is only increasing your problems. That person will also teach you certain measures to be taken and exercised to allow a free mind in sexual matters. The brain is the most important sexual organ: anything that disturbs it will directly impact your libido and performance. In fact most of the physical excitement is dependent up on how the brain is stimulated and aroused. That is what is involved in porn and ads where female bodies are used in sexually titillating ways to arouse your attention and goad the sexual drive or buying impulse, respectively. You must explore what inhibitions or anxious thoughts prevent sexual arousal, and address those feelings to completely free yourself from their negative influences. The sexologist is your best bet.

Bipolar Disorder - can anyone tell me what is the most effective and least amount of side effects?

BHARAT JYOTI, MRACGP, INCEPTOR, MD-PhD, MD - Psychiatry, FIPS, Fellow of Academy of General Education (FAGE), DPM, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Bangalore
Bipolar disorder is a lifelong condition. It runs an unpredictable course of ups and downs. When left untreated, these ups and downs can be devastating. The recurring manic and depressive episodes that characterize the disease make it difficult to lead a stable, productive life. In the manic phase, you may be hyperactive and irresponsible. In the depressive phase, it may be difficult to do anything at all. Early diagnosis and treatment can help you avoid these problems. Successful treatment of bipolar disorder depends on a combination of factors. Medication alone is not enough. In order to get the most out of treatment, it's important to educate yourself about the illness, communicate with your doctors and therapists, have a strong support system, make healthy lifestyle choices, and stick to your treatment plan. Recovering from bipolar disorder doesn?t happen overnight. As with the mood swings of bipolar disorder, treatment has its own ups and downs. Finding the right treatments takes time and setbacks happen. But with careful management and a commitment to getting better, you can get your symptoms under control and live fully.

I am suffering with panic disorder since 2009 and taking clonazepam 0.5 two times daily, provanol 20 mg two times and one antidepressant stalopam twice. It has become a routine and without taking this I feel uneasiness in head, palpitation and reeling head. After taking medicine I feel very sleepy. And at last I have to sleep for one hour minimum.

Yes clonazepam can cause sleep even if you've been taking it for a long period. To give you respite from sleepiness and other side effects your dosage regime need to be altered slightly. During this alteration you might have to tolerate few side effects for a few days but will definitely help you in the long run. Please make dose adjustments only when you can afford side effects for a few days.

All About Panic Disorder

All About Panic Disorder

Panic disorder is a serious condition that can strike without any reason or warning and the symptoms last for about 10 minutes, such as; a fear for imminent death or losing control, chills, numbness of toes or fingers, stomach ache problem or nausea, trembling, dizziness, chest pain, shortness of breath and difficulty in breathing.

Over time, a person with panic disorder develops a constant fear of having another panic attack, which can affect daily functioning and general quality of life.

Is it a heart attack or a panic attack?

Most of the symptoms of a panic attack are physical, and many times these symptoms are so severe that people think they are having a heart attack. In fact, many people suffering from panic attacks make repeated trips to the doctor or the emergency room in an attempt to get treatment for what they believe is a life-threatening medical problem. While it’s important to rule out possible medical causes of symptoms such as chest pain, heart palpitations, or difficulty breathing, it’s often panic that is overlooked as a potential cause—not the other way around.

What are the causes behind Panic Disorder?

Although the exact causes of panic attacks and panic disorder are unclear, the tendency to have panic attacks runs in families. There also appears to be a connection with major life transitions such as graduating from college and entering the workplace, getting married, and having a baby. Severe stress, such as the death of a loved one, divorce, or job loss can also trigger a panic attack.

Panic attacks can also be caused by medical conditions and other physical causes. Panic Disorder usually begins during late adolescence and early adulthood and is twice as common with women as compared to men.

How can Panic Disorder be treated?

  1. Psychotherapy- It is a type of counseling wherein trained professionals assist people by discussing strategies for comprehending and stabilizing this disorder.

  2. Cognitive Behavioral Theory- Cognitive behavioral theory aims at identifying possible triggers of panic attacks and helps one recognize and change their thought patterns and behaviors that stimulate such behavior.

  3. Medication- Anti-depressant medicines are used to cure panic disorders, such as Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors (SSRI), medications for reducing anxiety and certain cardiovascular medications such as beta-blockers to cope with situational anxiety.

Self-help Tips-

When it comes to panic attacks, professional treatment and therapy can make a big difference. But there are many things you can do to help yourself, too:

  1. Learn about panic, read up on anxiety, panic disorder, and the fight-or-flight response experienced during a panic attack.  

  2. Avoid smoking and caffeine.

  3. Learn how to control your breathing.

  4. Practice relaxation techniques regularly like Yoga and meditation.

Dear Lybrate user it's natural to feel drained out and stressed after a long day at work. Nothing to worry about. You just need to balance your work so that it don't causes you stress. If you go to your work without any happiness and enthusiasm it will again increase your stress and this vicious cycle will continue. so try to enjoy your work take that work load as challenge and work towards achieving ur targets. try take out time on weekends for going out with friends. some hobby time could be helpful. you can also indulge in getting spa and relaxing therapy. Try these steps. Please free to give your feedback.

Think positively and do meditation and yoga .Mind Control and some of its techniques. It’s a term that can have many meanings. Some people think of it as the ability to take control over the mind of other people. I prefer the meaning of controlling your own mind instead. It is the ability to understand and control your feelings, emotions and behaviour. As you do this you have full control of yourself and you can achieve many goals in your life. Also you will have great self-confidence which is the key to success. All the methods that are used for mind control have the same results. They bring you to a brain-state where you can reprogram your mind. Most of these techniques, when applied, require being active in order to affect you positively. The truth is that it is you making the changes and not the method you are using. The method just helps you reach the appropriate brain-state. Some benefits of mind control are listed below: o Develop Self-Esteem o Cure Fears o Quit bad habits o Become spontaneous and social o Fight Depression o Overcome painful situations Correct elements of your character o Change your reactions o Become more intuitive o The Silva Method I first read about Mind Control in a book written by Jose Silva. He has developed a method of mind control. This method is very simple and easy to follow. You just have to train your visualization skill (check my Visualization Exercises program) and to enter the alpha mind state, where you can change many things about yourself. The key is that in the alpha brain state your subconscious is accessible. The Silva method is based on the power of positive thinking. While you get into trance you start visualizing positive thoughts. As your subconscious mind is accessible you can pass these thoughts into it. This can have a dramatic effect on the way you feel. Self-HypnosisSelf-Hypnosis is a more general term for a technique that induces you into trance. Silva method uses a Self-Hypnosis technique to induce you into trance. While Silva method follows a standard path for the production of alpha brainwaves (click here for more info about brainwaves), Self-Hypnosis is any visualization technique that can bring you to the appropriate brain-state. While you try Self-Hypnosis you imagine things. You try to imagine and visualize as many details as you can. These details may be colours, textures, temperature, smells and generally whatever sensation you can think of. For example, an example visualization that can induce you very fast into trance is imagining that you are walking in a narrow path with dense vegetation at both sides and far in front of you there is a forest where you can hear birds or animals and the sky is clear with the Sun heating the top of your head. All these sensations that you imagine, as you try Self-Hypnosis, engage yourright hemisphere and accelerate the production of alpha brainwaves. Usually, you can get into trance in a few minutes if you can stay in your imaginary place and feel as many sensations as you can. Well, the difficult part of Self-Hypnosis is to focus your thoughts on the magical place you are imagining. It’s too difficult to stay in just one thought at the beginning of your relaxation. Many different thoughts tend to go through your mind, as the alpha brainwaves are produced. You can think of it as if you are in a boring class room. At some point you stop listening what the teacher says, you feel relaxed and you start daydreaming. This is the desired state you want to be in when you try mind control. Entering the alpha state is a skill which you can improve by training. You might even become able to get into trance in a matter of seconds. After some time a deep breath will be sufficient to bring you into trance. There are many products online that can help you experience self-hypnosis. These are usually audio products like CDs or Mp3s. Their great advantage over the traditional method of self-hypnosis is that you are guided by a hypnotherapist. Thus, you can just follow the instructions and eliminate the multiple thinking distractions. I have tried such products and I can say they are very helpful. They make self-hypnosis easy, maybe easier than the Silva method. You just have to concentrate on the voice and do whatever you are being instructed to. You can of course try alone. Check my free Self Hypnosis Instruction for a complete guide. Another way of reaching and maintaining an ideal brain state for Mind Control is by using Brainwave Entrainment. Brainwave Entrainment Brainwave Entrainment is when your brainwaves are synchronized to external stimuli. This may be auditory, visual or both. There are special devices that are called mind machines and use both stimuli methods to synchronize your brain. But I have no practical experience with such machines. I will talk mostly about the auditory brainwave entrainment which I have also tested. There are three different technologies of brainwave entrainment. These are: o Binaural Beats o Monaural Beats o Isochronic Tones Whatever technology is used, the aim is one: to induce you into trance. Brainwave entrainment is a powerful way to reach alpha brain-state. You can go even deeper reaching theta or delta brain-state. At these states you can Control you Mind effectively. As long as a session lasts you will remain at the ideal mind state having plenty of time to do your changes. Another powerful way to get quickly into trance is to combine self-hypnosis with brainwave entrainment. Your brainwaves will synchronize to the stimuli and in the same time you will help the brain to drop its frequency by imagining things. I think this is the most effective way to reach the ideal brain-state for Mind Control. Controlling the frequency of your brainwaves is also Mind Control. If you are able to alter the brainwaves consciously then you control your Mind. You can become creative, relaxed, alert or sleepy on demand. If you have any experience with brainwave entrainment then please feel freeto post your stories in the comments area. Your contributions are of great value to mind expanding techniques. Active Mind Control Ok, let’s suppose that you reach the ideal state of the mind. What will you do next? It’s a good question if you don’t have a purpose. You are the only one who knows why you want to be in a relaxed state and influence your subconscious mind. You may need to change an annoying aspect of your character, like being anxious easily or being too sensitive. Then, after reaching to the desired brain state, you start imagining yourself how it would be if you had not these annoying elements. You observe your new character and affirming that you don’t have any more these attributes. You close your meditative session always with an action that confirms that you have a new character from now on. This action may be to pass through a door, to step on a particular shape on the ground, to plunge in a pool or anything you like. By doing this often, your subconscious mind gets the message and finally you change your negative behaviour. This is effective Mind Control and is active. There is also passive mind control. Passive Mind Control Passive Mind Control can be achieved using subliminal messaging. You don’t have to think of anything, you just have to listen to relaxation music that has integrated subliminal messages. Subliminal messages are affirmations that are included in the track you listen to and you can’t consciously detect them. Their volume frequency is below the limit that the human ear can perceive consciously. These messages go directly to your subconscious mind. Although, subliminal messages are supposed to be an effective way to change your mind set and control your sensations and feelings, there is a lot of discussion if they really do work. Some people claim that subliminal messages definitely affect them, others believe that subliminal messaging is based on placebo effects. Anyway, we will try and we will see. Another problem is that you don’t know whether subliminal messaging products are credible. As you cannot hear the hidden messages, you don’t know what they say. Don’t try products that you are not sure for their origin. Lastly, the disadvantage of subliminal messaging is that every session is limited to a unique action. For example, if you want to shut your mouth in order to lose fat, you will listen to a subliminal session for weight loss. There are no sessions where you can make multiple changes to your character at the same time. But, using any of the previous Mind Control techniques you are able to make as many changes as you want.

Suffering from tremendous anxiety for my entrance exam, hampering personal relationships, health even normal day to day behavior, sudden mood swing, always preoccupied by single thought. Am i suffering from any serious disorder or is it normal?

Post Graduate Diploma In Rehabilitation Psychology, M A Clinical Psychology

Anxiety isn't bad its just a reaction to stress. Its normal & beneficial in some situations but for some of us, however, anxiety can become excessive and distressing psychological problem that affects quality of life and interferes with functioning in every sphere of life. Anxiety disorder has different symptoms, but all the symptoms have excessive, irrational fear and dread in common. Psychological counselling is known to have beneficial effects along with medicines. Certain lifestyle changes can also help persons with anxiety issues lead a normal life & be your confident self again. To specifically target your anxiety problems I need to know your age, if you have been taking alcohol ? / have you been smoking? what are other situations that makes you anxious ? come back with this information so that I can help you overcome your fears/ embarrassment (if any) and you can gradually be your usual self again.
