Dear. Welcome to lybrate. I can understand. Loosing someone near and dear is called grief and depression related to grief is pretty normal. But this sort of depression does not stay for long. This depression gets cleared within a span of some weeks. The best option for you is to undergo counseling and depression related therapy. Take care.

I can not concentrate on my study due to destruction of weird sex thinking.Is this a bad symptom of anything?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Absolutely not. Obsession about sex has been an old haunt of mankind. However, when it cripples you in anyway, then it is of concern. If it is occasional, like I imagine in your case, it may go away in the same manner it came. But if you indulged in it, it will continue and will plague you to distraction. So what to do? Just don?t indulge in it. When it comes, look at it, like it, and then let it go. Channelize your energy into some active contact games, regularly. Also meet up and socialize with heterogeneous groups and learn what it takes to relate to both sexes, comfortably. Learn that meeting with girls does not have to be only sexually oriented. There are so many things that happen between boys and girls and so much to learn about the opposite gender to help you to relate to them in a refined manner. Sex is sacred and you need to have respect for the opposite gender. Over time, you will develop a healthy attitude and good self-control around your sexual impulses and will turn out to be a thorough gentleman. I suggest you also get some sex education from a reliable source and know its nuances and impulse generation capacity. You will also learn how to deal with the sexual drive, whenever it comes on.

Hi Kavya, if you have polycystic ovarian disease, you are prone for weight gain. You should have healthy lifestyle. Like exercise daily for 40min. Diet rich in antioxidants, protein, amino acids. Avoid bakery products, sweet, potato, rice.

I want to ask For how to quite drink habit, I'm drinking from many years, now I want to quite this habit.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
If you think that you will find it very difficult, then admit yourself to a hospital and go for de-addiction: which normally lasts for about two weeks. Then follow that up with addiction counseling from a professional for at least three years to completely get rid of the habit. If this is also not enough, then admit yourself into a de-addiction center and stay there for at least 6 months and after that attend counseling with a professional. There are medicines that help with the drinking just to ease the initial craving. 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 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. Your 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 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 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 the wife and children and whoever else’s support you can get and act on it fast.

How can I rid off from smoking And what are the side effects of sudden stop of smoking.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You must try and try again. Very few people succeed in their first attempt. Your persistence will eventually pay off. The urge to discontinue is hampered by many factors but the worst of them is the conditioning. In fact these conditions can exist all through the day unlike other addictions. But your desire to want to stop is the most important factor. It is important to find out about the ill-effects of smoking to have a reason that alarms you about continuing in the habit. The information is really scary but true. The nicotine in tobacco smoke stimulates the heart beat to raise the blood pressure in no time at all. So you must avoid it like the plague: it is just very bad medicine for you. In fact it is highly toxic too. You will need to stop smoking or consuming any tobacco related items with immediate effect. You should start vigorous exercises, gradually increasing it over a period of time. Do deep breathing exercises every time you feel like smoking (try Yoga), and replace the oral urge with some healthy food substitute to satiate the need. You may also take hard candy or chewing gum. If the urge is too strong, then use nicotine chewing gum or nicotine patches, for a little while until the smoking drive reduces, substantially. You may also join Smokers Anonymous in your city where the support is really extraordinary for like-minded people who are also in the same situation. Keep yourself occupied or engaged with interesting activities during the times when it is most tempting. Keep the company of non-smokers for some time i.e. at least for the first 21 days. Above all announce it to everyone that you have quit smoking. Here’s a piece of very good advice: even if you accidentally/willfully take a cigarette, it is not the end of the world – you can start the cessation all over again. You must persevere with the best support until you defeat this addiction. Counseling is very useful in the initial stages and when temptations are at their highest. You will get easily agitated and develop a short fuse. If you used a nicotine patch a lot of these withdrawal symptoms will cease.

I have taken multiple (4 to 5) online tests which shows I have moderate BPD. I feel I do please help.

I have taken multiple (4 to 5) online tests which shows I have moderate BPD. I feel I do please help.
Dear user, BPD is a personality disorder where a person is emotionally unstable and lacks any long lasting relationships. There feelings of emptiness, with frequent mood fluctuations, and lack of persistent goals in life. Person is impulsive with threatening behaviors often displayed towards others or self. There are feelings of guilt and depression. Suicidal or self-harm behaviors are also present. Many other behaviors may be present, chief problem lies with trusting others and believing in self/others. These behaviors need to be assessed by a trained professional for the presence of any disordered condition. As you can see, many of these behaviors are sometimes present in most of us at some point of time in our life, which may be due to different reasons. BPD is a clinical disorder and needs professional diagnosis to reach to any conclusion. Online tests may be there to help you identify those behaviors which may qualify to be part of BPD but one should not believe in online tests which don't have any credibility. You have not mentioned names of any such sites from where you have self-diagnosed yourself. Self-diagnosis is a dangerous attempt, in case of psychiatric disorders specially. This may put a wrong perception in you about your distressing mental condition and you may start feeling more helpless. Its better you visit a psychiatrist or a clinical psychologist for an appropriate diagnosis. There are psychiatric interviews which are specifically designed to diagnose personality disorders. You may get one and see which one you have, in fact you have to first check whether you have any BPD or other disorder or not. So try not to self-diagnose yourself and consult a specialist. There are good therapies that help BPD patients. BPD people respond best to psychotherapies, specially DBT.

Separation Anxiety In Kids - 5 Ways To Deal With It!

Separation Anxiety In Kids - 5 Ways To Deal With It!

It is absolutely natural for your little ones to be anxious when you are separating from them. Though it can be difficult, but separation anxiety is one of the stages of development. It is supposed to fade away gradually by practicing some coping strategies. In case it intensifies and starts to interrupt with normal, daily activities, your child may have a separation anxiety disorder.

  1. Teach your child about separation anxiety: Regardless of the type of problem your child is struggling with, it is important for him or her to understand several things about anxiety. You should explain that anxiety is an adaptive system that signals the body that we are in danger. But it becomes a grave problem when the body tells that there is a danger even when there is no real danger. You should try to help your child identify his or her feelings and thoughts that he or she comes across when separating from you.
  2. Encourage your child not to seek help: Those kids who deal with separation anxiety seek excessive assurance from their parents. They keep on asking different questions in order to be cent percent sure that nothing would happen to them or their parents after they separate. You should tell your child that it is anxiety speaking for them and you can even make a plan with your child to beat anxiety.
  3. Create your child’s toolbox: One of the best ways to assist your child in dealing with separation anxiety is to create a toolbox for him or her that can be utilized if he feels scared. You should teach him or her to relax through calm breathing and relaxing his or her muscles.
  4. Teach your child to think realistically: Often it is found that kids with separation anxiety have thoughts that are quite unrealistic, but they don’t realize this when they feel anxious. For instance, if you and your husband are coming home late, your child may feel that both of his parents have had an accident. You may help him cope with it through a plan that would aid your child to detect the unhelpful thoughts and develop new thoughts that are realistic and helpful.
  5. Build your child’s bravery: In order to overcome separation anxiety, your kid has to practice some skills every time he faces such a situation. It is quite like an exercise that has to be turned into a habit so that your child feels better and gradually improves until he reaches his goals. If you wish to discuss any specific problem, you can consult a psychologist.

Check whether she is having the problem only when she is stressed or even in normal circumstances. Also check whether she has problem of urine incontinence ie involuntary leakage of urine whenever she exerts herself. First meet a urologist to rule out any physical problem. If all physical problems are ruled out. Bed wetting is a symptom of high anxiety or stress. It Absoultly necessary that she meets a clinical psychologist have a proper evaluation and therapy done. Temporarily relaxation excecises and proper management of water intake can be helpful.

It is normal. Try to organize your life. Be serious with issues. You practise concentrating / getup early and study and do some relaxation and start the day with positive affirmation and thinking and remembering you have a goal in life. Do some physical exercise like yoa or walking and concentration. Dedicate yourself to some cause.

It may not be depression alone. I think you should meet with a counselor and a doctor and cooperate with both therapies. Your age is very significant to this problem. There may be some childhood matters that were not resolved. Whatever happens you must do regular exercise, eat healthily, sleep well, and be balanced emotionally. Since you are young there will be the effects of hormones that can compound the situation, and there can be this last chance to resolve the past issues. But the prognosis is very good if you start now and in real earnest.

My wife is not happy because she think that I do not understand her but from my side I am trying my best. Acc to my duty schedule I stay with her 35 days in 2 month. Acc to her she need emotional support from me but I do not knew how should I do. Becoz as I start trying something she says that it will not work even before I started. Me myself got demotivated. When we stay together we always fight but when I went on duty she need me there. When I stay with her she says that I am with her But I am Not with her. She thinks that I need only sex from her. Yes I need sex but not only sex I need need her love n I want to give her love but my 100%(according to me) is 10% of what she need. She says that she need only emotional support and love and she should feel that I am loving her But I do not know how to do it. This is the root cause of our problem that when we stay together we fight and when we stay away we need each other. Pls guide us so that we can live happy married life.

The question you asked is pretty difficult to solve by texting. Basically there is absolute lack of bonding between you and your wife and that has lead to misunderstanding. Proper communication is the key to quality solutions. Make an effort to have quality one to one talk with her in an atmosphere of peace and joy. If you can not handle all this then avoid feeling frustrated and connect me directly via this platform either in person or online/Skype. A relationship coach, marriage mentor and expert sexologist needed for both of you because here both of you are right as well as wrong. That's how the relationships are. Move on connect me if you really looking for great marital and sexual relationship chemistry.

Hi You have asked a very good question. And it also seems that you are quite well informed about your medicines and their mechanism of action. Antidepressants usually act by modulating the level of serotonin. There are certain foods which can have an impact on serotonin. However not significant enough to be of any clinical use. A healthy balanced diet consisting of vegetables, fruits and fibers along with regular exercise is recommended in general. Regards.
