You may need to review your medication with these types of symptoms. The alcohol and smoking is not at all helping and the prognosis for your depression will only worsen with the continued use of these two substances: Kindly work towards stopping the same, immediately. I do not believe in astrologers or astrology, so kindly excuse my saying that they do not help at all. I would rather suggest you work with a counselor to deal with a lot of your issues and find ways to develop skills to cope with life. Your depression is clearly anger related and the suicidal drive must be worked on with counseling. Your disinterest in life itself is of concern. So do treat this as urgent and seek both psychiatric and counseling help.

I have a body pains in the get up in the early morning every day please tell me what can I do?

I have a body pains in the get up in the early morning every day please tell me what can I do?
What is the severity of pain? is the pain continous or intermittent? is it pulsating? since pain is a complex phenomenon, there are many treatment options medications, therapies, and mind-body techniques. Apart from pain killers, there is evidence that certain dietary supplements and vitamins can help with certain types of pain. Fish oil is often used to reduce pain associated with swelling. A therapeutic diet complemented with few medications for pain management can also work wonders. Do reply back for medication prescriptions. Being also a general physician and registered dietitian, I prescribe both evidence based herbal as well as allopathic medicines complementing with dietary guidelines and home remedies carefully personalized for each individual patient.

You are first of fooling around with medications: if the doctor has prescribed it then it was for a good reason. If you have attacks in the future the doctor will certainly give you more. Panic attacks are fear based, and you will tend to exaggerate the response to the stimulus. What happened when these attacks started may have some bearing on your state. The other possibility is that your constitution may have undergone a bit of change favoring the negative side. If you have been on prolonged stress quite unaware to yourself, then it is possible that that stress may have lowered your defenses. Any which way you look at it, your response to fear is not normal and therefore the panic. Work with a counselor: medication is not enough to help you process these emotions and to deal with it so that it does not escalate in this manner. You will probably not show any signs of medical problems because the effects have not yet reached physical proportions. It will though, if this situation is not brought under control. The quicker you work on this in therapy, the easier life is going to be. Constant and persistent stress will lower your immune system that you may develop other complications. You seem keen to sort this out and that is good motivation. Now work at it with hammer and tongs and sort out the fear. For your constitution I advise a lot of exercise, meditation, eat healthily, sleep adequately, pray with faith, love people and yourself, and be positive. Combine medication with counseling and you will get best results. If you want to be free of medication then in counseling you will develop new skills and techniques to deal with life's issues and can come off of medicines for good.

Let me explain what your son is going through. He has just entered adolescence. He may be having a spurt in the production of the male sex hormone, testosterone, earlier by nearly two years, which fortunately has a duration of two years, only. Due to this chemical alone there are three identified features that present itself over which he has no control: he will be sexually active, aggressive and rebellious, and he will have acne and pimple problems. Then if he has unresolved childhood issues, they will compound the situation and fuel his uncontrolled behavior. Please remember that he himself may not be aware of all this. In his case, he is manifesting a lot of anger in his stubbornness: do you know of any reason from his childhood that may have contributed to unresolved anger? go to a counselor and discuss these matters over and get support to take care of him. Now what else can you do? you parents need to become his best friend i. E. You must always ally with him and find the path of least resistance, without displaying any weakness. Communication must always be open and favorable. The moment he hides things and does not communicate with you or you withdraw it, there is serious danger. Avoid all types of confrontations and discus your concerns with him, openly. Never give him anything without there being some negotiations? barter with him; you give him something in return for some compliance from him. There has to be some ground rules and established boundaries in your house. Let it appear like it is his choice to comply. You have to be strong and firm in some matters. Don? t make decisions for him: offer alternatives that help him make responsible choices. I recommend that you take him for career counseling and determine his aptitude for academic pursuits. Whatever you do, never let him feel rejected by you. There is no harm to tell him that you are afraid as to what is going to happen to him, and afraid that you cannot handle him. This is a fact and so there is no shame in being that open to him. Remember that he is seeking attention by these means. Do not deprive him of it. In fact listen to his arguments, and see where he is coming from and get into that frame of reference to understand him. He may be frustrated with you, if you insist in having it your way, when the world is undergoing rapid changes every day. Try to understand him. Both parents must be on the same page and not argue about him in his presence. Let him know that he is dealing with a united front and that he cannot play games pitching one parent against another. But he must always feel love and acceptance. Two years will fly in a jiffy, and he will settle down very amicably. The way you deal with him, you could either escalate the situation, because you think and know that you are older and stronger; or you could facilitate a youngster to tide over this situation with great resolve and character formation, by being his best friend during this period of strife and turmoil.

Happy Birthday, Bill Gates! Top 5 Gates’ personality traits your child can pick up

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

Happy Birthday, Bill Gates! Top 5 Gates’ personality traits your child can pick up
5 awesome Bill Gates personality traits you can help your child pick up

Do you want to know what makes Bill Gates not just a mega-successful businessman but also a great human being? Well apart from outstanding business chops and an IQ of 160 of course. It is his attitude to life in general. If you want to see your child touch the peak of success personally and professionally, the apple of your eye should have certain integral personality traits. Here’s how you can effectively imbibe them in him/her. And there’s no better day to get started than today, the Microsoft founder’s Birthday!

1. Make your child a fighter.
We’ve often heard Bill Gates exhorting people to not give up despite the odds against them. “Life is not fair, get used to it” is his golden mantra. When your child seems down and beaten, always be there to support and encourage him, just like Gates’ parents were there to nurture his dream of computer programming from their club’s funds.

2. Inculcate traits of sensitivity and warmth.
A life lesson Gates champions is that of giving back to the society through his notable charitable endeavours such as the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. So how do you teach your child to realise his dream in this highly competitive world without losing his compassion? The answer is simple; encourage your child to perform small, daily acts of kindness like donating part of his pocket money, helping an elderly to cross the road or feeding the poor.

3. ‘No’ to shortcuts. ‘yes’ to patience and honesty.
Bill Gates is a strong believer of hard work. He’ll tell you that you need to work hard to realise your dream with shortcuts being a no-go. If your child is tempted to indulge in shortcuts, do not hesitate to gently admonish him. To be patient and honest consistently is hard even for us adults. Nevertheless, make yourself a role model for your child.

4. Stay humble.
One of the reasons behind the immense success of Microsoft’s founder is that he sees great opportunities even in the smallest and lowliest of work. “Flipping burgers is not beneath your dignity” He’s famously been quoted time and again. If you want your child to climb the ladders of success like this monumental man encourage him to get his hands dirty. You could begin with getting him to help out in household chores to get your point across.

5. Learn to learn from your mistakes.
The man of wisdom strongly advises to teach your child to learn from his mistakes. Whenever your child does something wrong, give him some time and space to understand his mistakes so that the lessons learnt remain with him for life. If the lesson turns out to be positive then the mistake made was worth it. In time, your little tyke will no longer depend on you or others to correct his mistakes. We’ll be looking at a self-sufficient person in his own right.

Could you please suggest How to overcome this and have normal sleep. Really this makes me become negative and now a days I am always getting the negative thoughts in my mind. Because of all these things, I am unable to do what I am supposed to do in professional life.

Well. You may be in chronic stress disorder. The sources of stress may be arising from your profession, family burdens and also from social issues which can exert pressure on your mind leading to such sleep disorders. If your blood sugar, cholesterol, hemoglobin and thyroid hormone levels are normal, you are in need of psychological counseling. You can work out your bottled-up emotions to a good friend and also your well wisher, which can help you ventilate your emotions to a certain extent.

Thanks in...
Your height is good enough and cannot be increased at all at this age. You can however do a lot of tricks with the clothing designs and patterns to appear taller than you are. You will need to exercise and do some gym workouts to build muscle. Increase your intake of proteins and mixed carbohydrates. I do recommend that you become fat without muscle gain, though. If you manage to calm down you could reduce yoru basic metabolic rate and that way gain some weight.

I have recently learnt about the demerits of Oleanz RT 20, which is being given to one of my relationship, who is under treatment for last 9-10 months after having diagnosed for Schizophrenia. Now, I seek your kind advice on the following lines; 01. Will the treatment continue life long? 02. Could the dozes be gradually reduced e.g.from 20 mg to 15 to 10 to 5 & then stopped. 03. Can a person fully recover from his past ailment of Schizophrenia? 04. Are there any alternative for Oleanz, which is less harmful in the long-term?

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Chennai
Oleanz is an excellent drug for acute/ immediate management of schizophrenia. Whether the treatment is going to be short lived or life long cannot be answered now, it depends on various factors and patient response. Yes the dose can be gradually brought down if the patient improves and maintains well. Total recovery in Schizophrenia rests on nearly 40-50 prognostic factors. There are alternatives to oleanz.

Dear lybrate user. Welcome to lybrate. Anxiety disorders are a category of mental disorders characterized by feelings of anxiety and fear, where anxiety is a worry about future events and fear is a reaction to current events. When a person fears about something now (which may or may not happen in the future) and if he do it repeatedly, it is called anxiety disorder. These fear provoking feelings are called anxiety and it may cause variety of physical symptoms, such as a racing heart, restlessness, helplessness and shakiness. There are a number of anxiety disorders: including generalized anxiety disorder, a specific phobia, social anxiety disorder, separation anxiety disorder, agoraphobia, and panic disorder among others. While each has its own characteristics and symptoms, they all include symptoms of anxiety. I need to know more about your anxiety so that I will be able to diagnose it properly and provide you counseling and psychotherapy to overcome and manage your anxiety. Take care.
