She has frequent pain, very severe with some other symptoms like heavy tiredness. Life is very difficult for her. She has at times experienced minor and very temporary reduction of pain due to enhanced rest and massage. If rest can help reduce her pain, is there any other mind control system to reduce on her pain?

A. Yes, I went to yoga sessions once for my pain. I do yoga very regularly and have adequate sleep now. Massage therapy is a very good treatment to get relief from pain.

I just get 2-3 hours of sleep at night. After my lunch my tiredness starts again. My mind is getting confused now and I am losing on my focus. Why is this change happening in me?

A. There are some possibilities that you are not taking your diet in time or your diet may not be nutritious as per your requirements. This can cause you to have increased stress and you can lose your sleep. This may increase the tiredness. Check if you are taking your medicines in right time. This can also be due to your stress. You may have stress due to your lifestyle too, which needs to be well managed in a healthy way. You can meet your doctor, as any increase in stress due to sleep deprivation can raise the chances of episodes to return back.

Q. My son who is a bipolar trying to follow his dad. what else we can do to make him have positive mind set? My son who is a bipolar is 12 years old. He cries inside a locked room and is not acting to his age. He refuses to give any reasons for his behavior. He is emotional that he cries aloud while watching movies. During his episodes his behavior turns to a very negative and uncontrolled state. I get frustrated but my husband has no problem with his behavior and he keeps a very good patience on any of his odd behavior. Of late I have found that this has increased his positive thinking and he tries to follow his dad. What else we can do to make him have positive mind set?

A. These are very good signs and your husband is doing good to treat him. I call it as an Ideal healer and a dad’s role. You can also help him in finding his strength and skills and make him to bring them to a good level of expertise. This will help him to develop self confidence. This will make him more positive in his behavior.
