World Autism Awareness Day 2015

World Autism Awareness Day aims to increase people's awareness about people, especially children, with autism. The day often features educational events for teachers, health care workers and parents, as well as exhibitions showcasing work created by children with autism.

Autism is a developmental disability that remains with a person for his or her whole life. This condition affects the brain's functions. The first signs usually appear before a child is three years old. People with autism often:

Find social interaction difficult.
Have problems with verbal and non-verbal communication.
Demonstrate restrictive and repetitive behavior.
Have a limited set of interests and activities.

Autism affects girls and boys of all races and in all geographic regions and has a large impact on children, their families, communities and societies
Caring for and educating children and young people with this condition places challenges on health care, education and training programs.

If you want to live with her, then get a better job and accommodation. That is a very reasonable ask, really. Anyway, you are way too young to think of marriage and even if you do so now, you must make proper plans. Ideally, you must get everyone's support too. By the time you grow up some, you may change your mind about a lot of things. If after a few years of working,earning, saving, getting better accommodation you can decide if this is your true love. Talk to the girl and if she agrees with what I am saying, I am sure you will do the sensible thing. Both of you must be on the same page about your future. With time even your family members may change their mind. So, be patient and in the meantime get things done.

Better to consult psychiatrist for medication along with medication. It is better to consult psychologist for psychological counselling. Medicine will not work alone medicine work internally. But externally you have a need to change your thought process. If you come normal stage. Then continue with psychologist. You need to change your life style modification. Psychologist conduct cognitive behaviour modification therapy and some relaxation therapies do not sit alone. Do not think too much about the one aspect continuously. Better to share your internal feelings and problems with your close friends and family members. Be sociable all the time and be happy. No problem you will come soon from this problem. But be strictly follow the psychologist suggestions to change your complete thought process. Ok all the best.

Losing someone or something you love or care deeply about is very painful. You may experience all kinds of difficult emotions and it may feel like the pain and sadness you're experiencing will never let up. These are normal reactions to a significant loss. But while there is no right or wrong way to grieve, there are healthy ways to cope with the pain that, in time, can renew you and permit you to move on. The single most important factor in healing from loss is having the support of other people. Even if you aren’t comfortable talking about your feelings under normal circumstances, it’s important to express them when you’re grieving. Sharing your loss makes the burden of grief easier to carry. Wherever the support comes from, accept it and do not grieve alone. Connecting to others will help you heal. Finding support after a loss •Turn to friends and family members – Now is the time to lean on the people who care about you, even if you take pride in being strong and self-sufficient. Draw loved ones close, rather than avoiding them, and accept the assistance that’s offered. Oftentimes, people want to help but don’t know how, so tell them what you need—whether it’s a shoulder to cry on or help with funeral arrangements. •Draw comfort from your faith – If you follow a religious tradition, embrace the comfort its mourning rituals can provide. Spiritual activities that are meaningful to you—such as praying, meditating, or going to church—can offer solace. If you’re questioning your faith in the wake of the loss, talk to a clergy member or others in your religious community. •Talk to a therapist or grief counselor – If your grief feels like too much to bear, call a mental health professional with experience in grief counseling. An experienced therapist can help you work through intense emotions and overcome obstacles to your grieving. When you’re grieving, it’s more important than ever to take care of yourself. The stress of a major loss can quickly deplete your energy and emotional reserves. Looking after your physical and emotional needs will help you get through this difficult time. •Face your feelings. You can try to suppress your grief, but you can’t avoid it forever. In order to heal, you have to acknowledge the pain. Trying to avoid feelings of sadness and loss only prolongs the grieving process. Unresolved grief can also lead to complications such as depression, anxiety, substance abuse, and health problems. •Express your feelings in a tangible or creative way. Write about your loss in a journal. If you’ve lost a loved one, write a letter saying the things you never got to say; make a scrapbook or photo album celebrating the person’s life; or get involved in a cause or organization that was important to him or her. •Look after your physical health. The mind and body are connected. When you feel good physically, you’ll also feel better emotionally. Combat stress and fatigue by getting enough sleep, eating right, and exercising. Don’t use alcohol or drugs to numb the pain of grief or lift your mood artificially. •Don’t let anyone tell you how to feel, and don’t tell yourself how to feel either. Your grief is your own, and no one else can tell you when it’s time to “move on” or “get over it.” Let yourself feel whatever you feel without embarrassment or judgment. It’s okay to be angry, to yell at the heavens, to cry or not to cry. It’s also okay to laugh, to find moments of joy, and to let go when you’re ready. •Plan ahead for grief “triggers.” Anniversaries, holidays, and milestones can reawaken memories and feelings. Be prepared for an emotional wallop, and know that it’s completely normal. If you’re sharing a holiday or lifecycle event with other relatives, talk to them ahead of time about their expectations and agree on strategies to honor the person you loved. If you recognize any of the above symptoms of complicated grief or clinical depression, talk to a mental health professional right away. Left untreated, complicated grief and depression can lead to significant emotional damage, life-threatening health problems, and even suicide. But treatment can help you get better. Contact professional therapist if you: •Feel like life isn’t worth living •Wish you had died with your loved one •Blame yourself for the loss or for failing to prevent it •Feel numb and disconnected from others for more than a few weeks •Are having difficulty trusting others since your loss •Are unable to perform your normal daily activities Please contact if you have any further query. Regards

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. Agoraphobia treatment consists of cognitive behavioral therapy, life style changes, relaxation therapy and meditation. Once you learn how to manage your anxiety yourself with the help of the above treatment methods, you will be cured and you can stop the medicines if any. You are already under cbt treatment. Usually it takes 6 months to one year for a complete cure. The improvement purely depends on the efficacy of the cbt. Hope your cbt is good. Take care.

I am smoking cigarette from past 3 years. At the place of heart Weekly pain I feel. Aur per day. Does it is affect of cigarettes or other thing.

Psychiatrist, Bangalore
Dear Pritam, Every pain near heart is not from the heart. Since you know smoking is one of the risk factors of heart attack, it is better for you to quit smoking. Kepp motivating yourself. Keep a quit day as emotional day. If you have craving, you can take the help of nicotine gum or patch for 12 weeks. Keep rewarding yourself for every small effort you make towards quitting. All the best.

You definitely seem to have several issues. Smoking is definitely harmful for your overall health including sexual life. There are antismoking medications like bupropion and verinicline which you can get from a psychiatrist. The second issue is about your depression. Again anti-depressants with counseling will help you come out of these problems.

At age 50, one must drink on an average one drink /day. Th consumption of this drink should be very slow ending anywhere between 15-45 minutes one drink is equal to one of the following:--- -250 ml can or bottle of regular beer---- -100 ml can or bottle of malt liquor--- -60 ml glass of red or white wine--- -30 ml glass of hard liquor (spirits) like gin, vodka, or whiskey. --- although tolerance effect of consuming alcohol remains almost same in age group 50-65 year if factors remain sam but loneliness, boredom, anxiety, or depression, in fact, depression in older adults leads to decreased tolerance but increased diversion towards alcohol just causing health issues.

Hi doctor I am having problem with my voice. I am 19 when I speak to someone over the phone or in person, I always hear them saying" what" can you speak again". May be thats because my voice is not loud enough and clear. Also when I hang out with my friends as we laugh out loud so much, gossip so much, then at the end of day my throat feels like coughing.

I love a guy. And we have been in a relationship for 5 years. And I know he loves me too. But I don't understand, he says he can't marry me. I don't know the reason because I'm afraid that he'll get annoyed and I'll ruin everything. He is possessive as well as caring about me as a mother. Sometimes he loves me like i cannot express. But he becomes so angry. And never discuss about future. Or why he don't want to marry? Please suggest and I really love him. I just want to be with him.

Ms. Lybrate-user, many times there are these differences in men and women. For a woman a relationship is always marriage oriented, but many men are not looking for a commitment when they are in a relationship. So you have to set your priorities, if marriage is your goal, lose your fear and talk to him. But if the relationship dynamics are such that you are afraid to even talk to him. My dear I am afraid your relationship is not very sound. Trust, freedom and commitment these qualities are very important for a stable relationship.

I suddenly got very angry. In anger I did so many wrong things. Everyday I found the same problem. What I can do to manage my anger.

BASM, MD, MS (Counseling & Psychotherapy), MSc - Psychology, Certificate in Clinical psychology of children and Young People, Certificate in Psychological First Aid, Certificate in Positive Psychology
Psychologist, Palakkad
Dear lybrate-user, welcome to lybrate. Anger and aggression are emotions. Anger comes when you become irritated. Irritation happens when you don't like something, or when something is repeated. As anger is an emotion, it should be vent out. You should be able to throw anger out instead of controlling it. But more perfect will be, know the frustrating situations and stop being emotional. If practiced properly, you will not get irritated at those circumstances at all. Those techniques are much easier to understand. I suggest anger management therapy. Take care.
