I think so I am having stress. Need psychotherapy. Many life issues. Not completely happy or satisfied.

I think so I am having stress. Need psychotherapy. Many life issues. Not completely happy or satisfied.
Dear Swarnima, Please don't take too much stress. All the life issues can be broken into many small issues with psychotherapy. Then you will learn how to manage the stresses of life. Be happy and satisfied.

I always keeps thinking of about something or the other because of which I can not concentrate on any thing for much time, because I will starting or day dreaming about something. Also I am very sensitive to what people say. I keep thinking over and over again, specially about my weaknesses or like why someone yelled at me or why they are laughing at me etc. I was never like this before. I never used to be so sensitive with thoughts. Because of this problem I can not enjoy myself. How can this be helped. Can someone help me out? Thankyou.

Dear Akhil, The duty of your mind is to think. You cannot control your mind's thinking. Once you just leave your mind without diversion, it always end up in negative territory. But certainly you can divert your thinking. You can make your mind to be always positive by engaging in creative activities, hobbies, games and passionate towards whatever you do. Thereby you can reduce your stress and tension also. Once you can do this, loss of proper sleep and stress also can be made normal. Please consult a psychologist for more advice. Take care.

What are the effects of smoking marijuana? Some people says that it is not harmful, what is the truth, harmful or not?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
That is the effect of marijuana and that is also the catch in it: its pleasant effects and creative stimulus are enticing but so are the dangers. Not much is known about its entertainment value or benefits. There is a lot of hype by those who want to legitimize it and those who love it: there is a bias because of their selfish motives. The antagonists on the other hand willfully propagate the dangers, sometimes without substantiated reasons to dissuade its use. If you know it is harmful why would you want to play with it. The obsession and compulsive use is when you become addicted to the substance. Just for your information here’s what WebMD has to say: ‘No matter how it gets into your system, it affects almost every organ in your body, and your nervous system and immune system, too. When you smoke pot, your body absorbs THC right away. (If you eat baked goods or another item, it may take much longer for your body to absorb THC, because it has to break down in your stomach before it enters your bloodstream). You may notice changes in your body right after you smoke. The effects usually stop after 3 or 4 hours. Smoking pot can increase your heart rate by as much as two times for up to 3 hours. That’s why some people have a heart attack right after they use marijuana. It can increase bleeding, lower blood pressure, and affect your blood sugar, too. We don’t yet know if marijuana is linked to higher odds of getting lung cancer. But the process does irritate your lungs -- which is why regular pot smokers are more likely to have an ongoing cough and to have lung-related health problems like chest colds and lung infections. Other physical effects of marijuana include: • Dizziness • Shallow breathing • Red eyes and dilated pupils • Dry mouth • Increased appetite • Slowed reaction time (If you drive after using marijuana, your risk of being in a car accident more than doubles.) If you’re a long-time user, you can have physical withdrawal symptoms -- like cravings, irritability, sleeplessness, and less appetite -- when you stop.’ It being a hallucinogen, it can lead to hallucinations and even a phenomenon called ‘cross hallucinations’ i.e. for example, you can see sounds and hear colors!!!

Dealing With Anxiety And Depression
  • Welcome humor. A good laugh goes a long way.
  • Maintain a positive attitude. Make an effort to replace negative thoughts with positive ones.
  • Accept that you cannot control everything. Put your stress in perspective: Is it really as bad as you think?
  • Exercise daily to help you feel good and maintain your health. Check out the fitness tips below.
  • Thoughts: Do not let your thoughts control you. Defuse your thoughts by saying "it's just a Thought".
  • You have a choice.  You have two sides of subpersonality one who says "I'm deprssed" and the other says " You are fine" which one is stronger ?? :- Its the one you feed...!
  • Symptoms: Just like anyother deseases example Fever , cold there are symptoms which will make your psychologically weak and it can be cure since you have identified that those are symptoms of fever and cold and by taking medicine it will be just fine. Like wise if you can understand the symptoms and the cause for Anxiety and Depression you can work with it and manage to get better.

Gynecologist may have asked you to wait to be assured of health/well-being of the child. Else if you have made-up your mind, you can go for it. Also in case your wife does have a c-sec/surgical delivery, you could request the gynecologist to do a tubectomy for her.

Hello Doctor, I am 23 years Old and I am a ca final student not able to give my exams due to this mental illness From past 16 months I am suffering from bad anxiety and depression but from past week my thoughts getting changed everyday earlier I was getting that everyone is talking about me or wants to kill me now I am getting that I want to kill others or I want to do some violative act or want to kill or hurt myself. Well yesterday I went to the psychiatrist and he has diagnosed me with OCD and prescribed me Paxidep CR 12.5 once in a day, Clonazepam 0.50 Mg 1 and half tablet a day and risperidone 2 mg Half medicine in the night I have start taking other medicines except risperidone as it is a anti psychotic Now please can you tell me what symptoms I am going through and should I take risperidone.

Hi, Thanks for writing in, welcome to the forum. Let us look at your scenario systematically. First, what is the likely diagnosis? It is difficult to say with the limited information available, but if one were to conclude with this information, I would agree with the diagnosis that was assigned to you (OCD). Your doctor is not using risperidone as an antipsychotic here, but as an augmenting agent. The dose of risperidone is on the lower side and that further confirms his intentions. The use of risperidone when there is unsatisfactory improvement with an SSRI is well known and proven beyond doubt. But the question here is whether we can just have improvement with an appropriate dose of paxidep alone or not. The only way to get to know that is to try it without the risperidone with appropriate dose adjustments from time to time. A call regarding risperidone can be taken after a few weeks of treatment along these lines. Please understand that all of the above suggestions are for your information only and I have no intention to question or interfere with your doctor's line of treatment. Also, since I have not seen you, I am assuming that the diagnosis of OCD is accurate and you have previously not taken medicines for the same or previously did not have any psychiatric ailments. A number of psychiatric terms, diagnoses and medication classes are deceptively similar to words used in general english. For example the word obsession as used in english and as used in psychiatry are completely different. Similarly, a medicine that is called an antidepressant or an antipsychotic is not simply a medicine to be given in depression and psychosis only, but depending upon the dose and other medicines being used alongside, can have vastly different effects and can be used in many different conditions. For example, a medicine such as propranolol, depending upon the dose and formulation can be used in the treatment of migraine, BP, anxiety, heart disease, intra-abdominal bleeds, aggression and so on. So stay away from a simplistic interpretation of what a medicine is for and clarify with the doctor. Take care!

Phobia, almost 4 years have passed. I do not go out of my home. I go rarely when it is necessary to go. Those streets in which I spent my childhood even my teenage and 2 years of my young era. My problem is that I got failed in my CA exam. I think that when I go outside people look at me and talk about me. If I have to bring something from near to the my home, I mean some grocery item I went with helmet and with byk so that people can not look at me. Even I do not go out just for 5 meter from my home. God, please help me. I know that doctor can ask that can I think about suicide. Yes I thought about that. But I am so strong I will never never never do that. I know I am fighting with difficulties, and suicide is not a solution. But I am so stressed. When I do my studies I start thinking, remembering what has gone wrong, what mistakes I have done in past, I talk my self. Even if I decided to go to morning walk then I decide to go in dark I mean 4: 30 am and return at 5: 30 so that people can not see me. 2-3 year ago I consulted with some phyc. He told me that I have COD problem. He prescribed me medicine I took that regularly for some time but by those medicine I got sleep all the time. Please help me.

Hello Lybrate user. No doubt you are going through some tough phase in your life. And its really something that makes life very difficult. Every time people feels pressure But think once is't that its the condition which is created by you only and so you can stop it also. You have created one wall around yourself and you are dealing every second with it. You need to focus on your aim only nothing else and you will feel all this thing will change slowly. Is it worth that you are focussing on such matter which is not in your control, you can't change the thinking of every single people around you and its not required ,what is your duty is to just focus on your work. There will always be some people who will support and some people who will criticise you only their number will vary and it happens with everyone .no one can change this ,what you can change is your approach, and your thinking ,it will take time but you will see the difference and any professional can help you in this. Please consult any professional as soon as possible. If you need my help you can contact me online. Take care.

I think I am loosing my self I feel so unhealthy stress tired body pain all the time.

I think I am loosing my self I feel so unhealthy stress
tired body pain all the time.
Kindly consult a psychiatrist and get your stress evaluated. Stress is the feeling of being under too much mental or emotional pressure. Pressure turns into stress when you feel unable to cope. People have different ways of reacting to stress, so a situation that feels stressful to one person may be motivating to someone else. Many of life’s demands can cause stress, particularly work, relationships and money problems. And, when you feel stressed, it can get in the way of sorting out these demands, or can even affect everything you do. Stress can affect how you feel, think, behave and how your body works. In fact, common signs of stress include sleeping problems, sweating, loss of appetite and difficulty concentrating. You may feel anxious, irritable or low in self esteem, and you may have racing thoughts, worry constantly or go over things in your head. You may notice that you lose your temper more easily, drink more or act unreasonably. You may also experience headaches, muscle tension or pain, or dizziness. Stress causes a surge of hormones in your body. These stress hormones are released to enable you to deal with pressures or threats – the so-called "fight or flight" response. Once the pressure or threat has passed, your stress hormone levels will usually return to normal. However, if you're constantly under stress, these hormones will remain in your body, leading to the symptoms of stress.

I'm unable to sleep deeply since a week. It's like I take naps in the nights. I was tensed for my studies because of the lengthy course when my exam dates weren't published. But now as they are declared, I feel relaxed but still can't sleep. I don't know the reason. My doctor advised me to meet a psychologist, who has given me some medicines and now I am able to sleep properly as well. My query is that will I get habitual to these medicines and depend upon them throughout my life? Or is it okay to take them? Also suggest me what should I do to sleep properly as when I don't, my head start aching badly as I have migraine too. Suggest me some natural stress relievers as I think stress is the reason for my sleeplessness. Also if you find any other reason please let e know.

Dear Aayushi. Your present problem is stress related. Please understand stress. Stress is simply a reaction to a stimulus that disturbs our physical or mental equilibrium. In other words, it's an omnipresent part of life. A stressful event can trigger the “fight-or-flight” response, causing hormones such as adrenaline and cortisol to surge through the body. A little bit of stress, known as “acute stress,” can be exciting—it keeps us active and alert. But long-term, or “chronic stress,” can have detrimental effects on health. You may not be able to control the stressors in your world, but you can alter your reaction to them. Physical exercise, creative activities, deep breathing, being away from the situation for sometime etc can help you tackle the stress. Stress disorder is usually treated with a combination of psychiatric medicines, psychotherapy, life style changes, meditation and exercise. Once you make the necessary amendments in your life with the help of the above said therapies and life style changes, learn how to manage the depressive episodes without medicines and learn to relax, the medicines can be weaned off over a period of one year. There are no side effects for the medicines and if you continue for more than one month, you will be addicted. Please consult a psychologist online or in person for advise, counseling and therapy. Take care.
