Dear, 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 practised properly, you will not get irritated at those circumstances at all. Those techniques are much easier to understand. Please post a private question with all the details and I shall help you with those tips and tricks. Take care.

One of my family member is addicted with smoking and is unable to relax. How can he quit smoking?

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Kolkata
Smoking addiction is treatable condition. But, it can only be attempted when you beloved family member is motivated. Elaboration about the side-effects of smoking should help in this regard. To start with, he/she can attempt to decrease the amount of use by himself/herself. Your psychiatrist will help you subsequently.

All your suffering, anxiety, dream etc., are nothing but deviations. At the age of 21, if a person's predominant thoughts and activities are directed towards career goals and achievments he will most likely attain a bright future in married life and social life as well. Your fear of becoming a gay is absolutely irrational. Take deep dive into your career goal, all these unnecessary thoughts and fears will automatically vanish.

Panic Attacks

Panic Attacks

What is a panic attack?

Panic attack is a sudden onset of intense fear, or terror that occurs without apparent cause. Physical symptoms may include shortness of breath, palpitations or accelerated heart rate, chest pain or discomfort. Psychological symptoms may include a suffocating sensation or a sense of unease and lack of touch with reality. Once you have recognized the symptoms as a panic attack, here are a few techniques you can try:

  • Shift your focus:

Try focusing on a neutral object or person. Try focusing on a colour which relaxes you and focus on it surrounding you. Now try focusing on a silly word or something that makes you laugh. Notice how your focus shifts and how your body responds.

  • Imagine the positive:

Replace a negative state with a more positive one. Imagine a time when you felt confident, safe or calm. Imagine the sounds, tastes, views and feelings of that moment. Now submerge in that moment till your body relaxes.

  • Use these grounding techniques:

Look around you and identify:

  • 5 things you see

  • 4 things you feel

  • 3 things you hear

  • 2 things you smell

  • 1 thing you taste

Deep breathing:

Breathe in for 4 seconds then exhale all the way out. Now breathe in for 6 seconds, then exhale all the way out. Now breathe in for 8 seconds, then exhale all the way. Feel even the smallest muscles relaxing and continue breathing slowly.

I'm in a relationship from last 8 months and we were very happy in beginning. He used to call me, text me, listened to me, understood me. But now things have completely changed. He feels bored with me, we make love sometimes but not sex. What should I do to bring back my relation?

Sexologist, Pune
A relationship changes many times during our life times. It may get better or may get worse. Sometimes it remains status quo. But at no point one can experience the same moments or feelings that one has experienced in the past. Because we also change during the course of time. Give yourself some time, if you really care for each other it is likely that you will stick on. But do not spoil the present moment with expectations. Just enjoy being with each other.

Dear, at your age, memory problems like amnesia are not common. Many young people are having problems with memory. These problems are either they are too busy or due to anxiety and stress. Busy people use organizers or employ a personal assistant because they can't remember every task. You need to understand this. If you still say, you are having memory problems, we need to check your memory using memory test. If you want more of my help in this regard, please contact me. Take care.

Dear lybrate-user, The "sleeping pills" that she may be taking, may be prescribed by the doctor. The dose what she is taking may be more than what is prescribed. Find a person in her family who can supervise her tablets for now. After marriage, you can supervise. In a bipolar disorder this kind of overdose may become harmful and fatal also.

Schizophrenia: Causes, Symptoms and Treatment

M. D. Psychiatry, Diploma in Psychological Medicine-DPM, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Noida
Schizophrenia: Causes, Symptoms and Treatment

Schizophrenia is a debilitating mental and emotional condition that is characterised by a heavily distorted thought process as well as hallucinations and even extreme fear that borders on paranoia. Let us find out more about this debilitating disease:

Causes:

  1. Genetics: Genetic factors play an important role in the development of schizophrenia.
  2. Environment: Possible environmental factors include obstetric complications, the mother's exposure to influenza during pregnancy or starvation. It has also been suggested that stress, trauma even migration can lead to the emergence of schizophrenia. 
  3. Neurodevelopmental Factors: Schizophrenia appears to be a neurodevelopmental disorder. That is changes that cause the illness have been occurring from the earliest stages of development even in utero, and may continue to influence the development of the brain over the first 25 years of life. 

Symptoms
This disease has a variety of symptoms include cognitive and emotional ones that can vary in the degree and severity. One of the most common symptoms included hallucinations and delusions where the patient may end up imagining things that do not really exist. The patient may also be gripped by sudden and crippling fear like paranoia, which can be debilitating as far as everyday functioning of the person goes. The symptoms can also interfere with the way a person deals with situations and life skills on a cognitive basis. Withdrawal and hopelessness are also a part of this disease.

Treatment
The earliest signs and symptoms must be referred to a psychiatrist. The treatment involves the management of the case of an individual basis along with psychological rehabilitation programs and inclusion of the patient in self-help groups. Housing and employment programs must also be availed so as to keep the patient busy. Also, behaviour therapy will be required in such cases. The mode of counselling should usually be on a one on one basis, although many doctors also suggest that group therapy can help in showing examples of progress so as to encourage the patient to change and get a new lease of life.

Dear, You must be able to understand Concentration, attention span, recollection and distraction. If you are able to watch a movie for two hours continuously, if you are able to play a game for an hour, then you do not have any concentration problems. You can't be attentive towards your studies because you are not interested in it. You are able to watch movie and play game because you are interested in it. Human cannot be attentive towards anything for more than 10 minutes. Then you should study in such a way that your attention is continued and make the subjects are interesting to you. Effective learning techniques should help you. Recollection depends on anxiety, stress and other physical and circumstantial factors. Distractions while studying are plentiful. You should be able to overcome distractions or avoid distractions. Please understand the above. Change your study style and attitude accordingly. Please post a private question to me and I will help you with "effective learning" techniques. Avocados, Beetroots, Blueberries, Broccoli. Celery, Coconut Oil, Dark Chocolate etc are good for improving concentration. Take care.

Dear Lybrate user It's important that along with medicines your brother must take some help from Psychologist. One on one sessions are required. Also try making some lifestyle changes like early morning walk/jogging or Yoga. Trying engage in some hobby. You both brothers can spend some brother time watching movie together or going to some trip together. Hope these solutions will help. Take care.

I am having regular smoking and drinks habits. What is the effect on my body. How should I skip all the habits. Any treatment now to confirm the status of body now in 2015. Please advice if you can.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
One of the immediate concerns will be cirrhosis of the liver. The combination of smoking and drinking increases the risk many times. There is also the enlarged heart and weak heart beat after long duration of alcohol consumption. There is the danger of cancer of so many organs that it is too long to list all the problems. Here are just a few: Blocked arteries, loss of stamina, lung damage, skin damage, kidney, hepatitis B, eyes, teeth and gums, hair, etc. You can go for a complete medical and psychiatric evaluation. The problem is that even if you know the dangers you will not quit unless something dramatic happens.There is only one reason, and that is, that you have not reached your ?Rock bottom? so that you will be stopped right in your tracks! Before that happens you must, on a war footing, exercise restraint and stop the use of all these substances. Since you have probably tried and found it extremely difficult I suggest you do one of the following: It sounds like you are in an advanced stage of alcoholism and tobacco use and need admission to a rehabilitation center to ideally help deal with this problem. There are no guarantees about stopping one?s addiction. But that does not mean we should not keep at it, over and over again until we succeed. Now it is difficult to give up all by yourself because you have become addicted to alcohol and tobacco and there is so much to do. Under such circumstances it is best that you admit yourself into a de-addiction center and stay there for at least 6 months and after that you can attend counseling with a professional. There are medicines that help with the drinking just to ease the initial craving and to act as an antabuse i.e. you will have a serious reaction, if you consume even a small quantity of alcohol or alcohol based substances. It has to be carefully monitored to see that you do not only consume the medication but you are also avoiding alcohol. Ultimately, it is your will power and the support that you receive from the medical fraternity and your close and dear ones. You must also learn to substitute and deal with the oral need, a rigid value system, the script issue, and of course take a look at all the genetic factors to plan a strategy not to get into what is called ?cross addictions? i.e. another form of addiction that may appear alright but is in fact as bad as the primary addiction. The center or hospital and the counselor will advise and guide you on several measures and precautions you will need to take to stay with your resolve. Even after the rehabilitation you must attend AA meetings and continue this support for a long time. The family will also need to attend some sessions and go for Al-anon meetings for their co-dependency issues. You cannot be treated in isolation because the family has gotten used to your drinking in particular and have made some unhealthy adaptations to somehow cope. Your children will also have to attend meetings to work out their issues because of the father?s habit. In fact, they are all suffering from the Adult Children Of Alcoholics Syndrome (ACOAs), which in effect means that they are genetically predisposed to alcoholism or can have cross addiction problems, and that they will have similar traits of the abusing alcoholic but in a milder form. There are special support groups for them all over the world. Should they touch or indulge in alcohol or any addictive substances or behaviors, they could also become full-fledged addicts themselves. Make a serious plan with whoever else?s support you can get and act on it fast. If you are not cooperative, there are some centers that will come and pick you up, after you are completely drunk, and admit you by force. This will however, require the wife and family?s consent. Do not delay for any reason and stop fooling around with half decisions. This must be your last and final attempt and make it a successful one.

Please provide me the medicine that I can give him by mixing into the food and serve to him. I want that he doesn't come to know about this as he will not take medicine. So provide me the answers accordingly.

No one will give you those medicines because it has to be carefully monitored and the person needs to know about what he is consuming, especially antabuse for the alcoholism problem. The medicine for the cigarette smoking is also given only by prescription from a doctor who has to examine him. If you want to help him otherwise these are the things you can do: Ideally he must want to stop these habits. Otherwise it will become a futile exercise. If these habits have become too much then you will need to admit him into a center for rehabilitation. He will need to be there for at least 6 months and they will do detoxification and treatment for the addictive nature followed by extensive counseling. There are medicines that help with the drinking just to ease the initial craving and to act as an antabuse i.e. he will have a serious reaction, if he consumes even a small quantity of alcohol or alcohol based substances. It has to be carefully monitored to see that he not only consumes the medication but is also avoiding alcohol.
