SCRIPTO-PHOBIA / GRAPHO-PHOBIA (ENGLISH)


GRAPHO-PHOBIA
FEAR OF WRITING IN FRONT OF PUBLIC; OR SOMEONE ELSE
Scripto-Phobia

WHAT IS GRAPHO-PHOBIA ?
WHEN A PERSON GETS SCARED TO WRITE IN PRESENCE OF SOMEONE ELSE, OR IN PRESENCE OF PUBLIC/ SOCIAL GROUP. STARTS AVOIDING SUCH SITUATIONS, GETS WORRIED ABOUT FACING SIMILAR SITUATION IN FUTURE, THIS PROCESS IS CALLED GRAPHO-PHOBIA.
THE PERSON FEARS MAKING ERRORS WHILE WRITING IN FRONT OF OTHERS, SOMETIMES WORRIES THAT OTHER/ OTHERS WILL MAKE FUN OF HIM, THEY WILL LAUGH AT HIM, WHICH IN TURN WILL MAKE HIM FEEL LOW / MORALLY DOWN.
IS HAVING GRAPHO-PHOBIA DANGEROUS?
AS SUCH IT IS NOT A DANGEROUS CONDITION. BUT DEFINITELY IT HAMPERS PERSON’S PERFORMANCE. IN CORPORATE WORLD, USUALLY SMALL TEAMS ARE FORMED AND EMPLOYEES ARE TOLD TO LEAD THE TEAMS. IN THIS CASE THERE IS NECESSITY OF SHOWING PRESENTATION, WRITING IN FRONT OF GROUP. BUT WITH THIS TYPE OF PHOBIA THE PERSON SIMPLY TENDS TO AVOID THE SITUATION AND CAUSES MANY LOSSES IN APPRECIATION AND PERSONAL GROWTH.
IN SOME CASES PEOPLE GET SCARED TO SIGN ON CHEQUE IN CROWDED PLACES OR , IN FRONT OF OTHERS , THIS LEADS TO A GREAT LIMITATION , IF IN CASE OF EMERGENCY THE PERSON NEEDS TO SIGN A CHEQUE URGENTLY IN A PUBLIC PLACE .
THESE LIMITATIONS CAN BE SURELY OVERCOME IF WE UNDERSTAND THE PHENOMENON OF FEAR-PHOBIA PROPERLY.
WHY DOES THIS GRAPHO-PHOBIA HAPPEN TO SOME PEOPLE? (ETIOLOGY)
THE CONDITION MAY BE SEEN IN RESPONSE TO MANY FACTORS IN LIFE FEW OF WHICH WE DISCUSS HERE ARE:-
1.     PSYCHOLOGICAL
2.    BIOLOGICAL
USUALLY A BILOGICAL SET UP OF A PERSON MAKES HIM MORE VULNERABLE TO GET THIS PHOBIA, ON THE TOP OF IT PSYCHOLOGICAL FACTORS TRIGGER OR ACTIVATE THIS CONDITION.
PSYCHOLOGICAL FACTORS
GENERAL GROWTH OF THE CHILD, IN WHICH ENVIRONMENT THE CHILD IS BORN AND BROUGHT UP , THE RESPONSE OF FAMILY MEMBERS TO STRESSFUL CONDITIONS , THE LEARNED BEHAVIOUR OF THE CHILD , ATTITUDES OF THE CHILD TOWARDS , IN FUTURE DECIDE THE EXPRESSION OF PHOBIA LIKE CONDITIONS .
THE PSYCHOLOGICAL GROWTH OF THE CHILD
IN CHILDHOOD WHILE WRITING SOMETHING, IF SOMONE HAD CRITICISED HIM, OR LAUGHED AT HIM, OR WAS MADE FUN OF; CHILDS STARTS TAKING THESE CRITICISM SERIOUSLY. COMPARING WITH HANDWRITING OF SIBLINGS OR BETTER CHILDREN FROM CLASS MAY AGGREVATE THIS SELF EMBARASSING ATTITUDE. CHILD MAY START ASSUMING THAT HIS HANDWRITING IS WORST AND CAN NOT BE SHOWN TO OTHERS. THIS LEADS TO AVOIDING BEHAVIOUR. AVOIDING NATURALLY INCREASES FEAR, THAT STILL SOMEONE MAY CRITICISE, IF THEY SEE MY HANDWRITING.
THIS LEADS TO GUILT AND LOW SELF CONFIDENCE IN CHILD, WHICH IS EXPRESSED IN LATER LIFE.
BIOLOGICAL FACTORS
BIOLOGICAL FACTORS ARE VERY COMMONLY INVOLVED IN FORMATION OF PHOBIA. THERE ARE MANY STUDIES SHOWING GENETIC PREDIPOSITION OF PHOBIA IN MANY CASES. MANY TIMES THE ANXIETY DISORDERS ARE TRACED BACK IN PARENTS, OR THEIR CHILDHOOD HISTORY.
THERE STUDIES WHICH SHOW STRONG CONNECTION BETWEEN NEUROTRANSMITTER IMBALANCE AND EXPRESSION OF THIS CONDITION.
COMMONLY INVOVLED NEUROTRANSMITTERS ARE DOPAMINE, EPINEPHRINE AND SEROTONIN.
MOREOVER TREATING THESE CONDITIONS WITH MEDICINES WHICH BRING BACK THESE NEUROTRANMITTERS IN BALANCE HELP IN IMPROVING THE CONDITIONS ALSO INDICATE THE CO-RELATION.

TREATMENT
PSYCHOLOGICAL
COUNSELLING AND BEHAVIOUR MODIFICATIONS
COUNSELLING IS FOUND TO BE VERY HELPFUL IN RESOLVING PHOBIAS.
COUNSELLING TARGETS PERSONS PERTICULAR FAULTY BEJHAVIOUR, TRIES TO FIND OUT FAULTY OR IRRATION THOUGHT, IDEA OR ATTITUDE BEHIND IT. IT MOTIVATES THE PERSON TO UNDERSTAND HIS/HER OWN THINKING AND MAKE APPROPRIATE MODIFICATIONS IN IT. THIS LEADS TO BETTER POSITIVE RATIONAL THOUGHTS AND MORE RATIONAL BEHAVIOUR OUTPUT.
FOR COUNSELLING TO ACT STRONG COMPLAINCE MOTIVATION AND PATIENCE IS NEEDED.

BIOLOGICAL / MEDICINES
AS STATED EARLIER IN THIS TOPIC , THERE IS STRONG BIOLOGICAL BASE TO THIS CONDITION . TO OVERCOME THIS NEUROTRANMITTER IMBALANCE MEDICINES ARE VERY HELPFUL.
IT IS NOT NECESSARY AT ALL THAT THE PERSON WILL NEED MEDICINES THROUGHOUT HIS/HER LIFE. THESE MEDICINES ARE HELP TO OVERCOME THE DEFICIT.
USUALLY THERE IS A PRESCRIBED COURSE OF THESE MEDICINES, WHICH MAY VARY FROM PERSON TO PERSON, DEPENDING ON THE CONDITION AND RESPONSE TO TREATMENT.
MEDICINES FOR THESE CONDITIONS ARE NOT ADDICTITION FORMING IN NATURE.
IT IS POSSIBLE THAT THE DOCTOR CAN STOP THE MEDICINES AFTER A PERTICULAR COURSE OF TIME.
THE PERSON USUALLY DOES NOT NEED TO TAKE MEDINES LIFELONG.
THESE ARE MYTHS WHICH AVOID THE PERSON FROM TAKING PROFESSIONAL HELP.
CONCLUSION – GRAPHO-PHOBIA IS A CONDITION WHICH CAN BE TREATED FULLY, THE PERSON CAN DEVELOP HIS/HER NORMAL POTENTIAL AND ABILITIES. THIS CONDITION NEEDES TO BE UNDERSTOOD AND TREATED PROPERLY.

This Child was operated for having swallowed a cigarette lighter -viral message-fact behind the scene -schizophrenia

Recently May 2019 there is a viral message on whatsapp which is spreading fear in parents as it says 
"This Child was operated for having swallowed a cigarette lighter. But can you imagine what all stuff the doctors discovered during the course of the operation. It is, therefore, necessary to pay attention to what small kids are upto...." 
Along with this message video is forwarded




Common sense to apply :-
 The food pipe is so small , even for adults it becomes difficult to swallow a large sized tablet. How a child can swallow such big objects shown in this viral video .
Only one who does not have touch with reality , does not understand what he or she is doing can only do this act of swallowing multiple hard objects. And I was right . I found the possible fact behind this video.
