Dear user. I can understand. You are YOU. Whatever your behavior today, whatever your body language today are learned from your past experiences and social interactions. Whatever you have learned can be unlearned or over written. This is a continuous process happening throughout your life. I suggest cognitive behavior therapy for you. Take care.

Dear lybrate-user, welcome to lybrate. 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. Take care.

I am suffering with anxiety from past 5 years. Had panic attack two times and fearing to take on-site assignments. Can the fear overcome? Pls suggest.

Yes, you can.The important sign in panic attack is the feeling that you cannot handle fear and you are using an extreme reaction to the fear. You cannot control panic attack but you can do two things: you can change your perception of the fearful stimulus and you can change your response to the fear. The first one is the best and will preempt the need for the second. If you are already far gone into the reaction mode, then you need both responses to counter the attack. The way we see things in life (like half empty or half full glass) is very dependent on our attitude. Attitude may have developed over many years but fortunately can change in a matter of sustained choices made and acted up on now. Accordingly you choose to see things as either threatening or as an opportunity. The opportunist will be positive and work with the situation to make good out of it. The individual who sees it as threatening, will, out of fear, try to avoid/run away from the situation or react in a panic. Yes, self-belief does impact it too, but you can see that prior to that, perception will tarnish the belief system too. Here, you can see that all the resolution lies in just changing your perception/attitude, even if it is against odds. Changing your response, despite the perception, is building up of your reserves and resources to handle any contingency that life throws up at you. And life throws up situations quite regularly and heavily. For this you need to develop a fit mind and body: The former, by meditation and mind exercises; and the later, by exercises and proper diet. Included in the development of the mind is the handling of emotions, in your case fear. These changes will give you a handle on life and your perceptions and responses.

Dear lybrate-user, You can take a blood test to know whether you have B12 deficiency or not. If the levels are low, you need to take supplements. Any doctor can identify B6 deficiency. Please consult a doctor for appropriate treatment of OCD.

Hi, I'm a house wife. My husband is addicted to the phone. And we have understanding issues. I feel like m emotionally dependant on him. I do so many things for him on bed In turn this makes him sleep not sexually active. He is lazy. He doesn't admire me intern laugh at me. I feel the main reason behind this is good. He has a very possessive mother mainly mummas boy. He comes late to the room and falls asleep. I feel that my expectations are hurt. I am very emotionally dependant on him. I think this is my problem. I keep thinking about him since m idle. He comes from office I expect him to spend time with me intern I find him with the phone and in front of the TV watching debates. Its been 10 months we got married. I still didn't get thoughts of having a kid because of all these issues. The main issue is I wanted to marry a guy working in abroad, he was working in abroad but got transferred here after marriage unfortunately now he is here. My in laws mind me alot this is so disturbing. My husband is always parents oriented he sleeps only after they sleep. He is addicted to movies always watch movies on weekends and I would plan something for him on bed he would either sleep or doesn't enjoy what I do. When he comes from office I find him glued to the sofa with the phone. He leaves by 9.30 and comes home by 8 pm. He doesn't move from the sofa. He then watches debates on TV. At times I make him feel relaxed on bed by Strip tease, blowjob and I massage his whole body with oil sometimes only his private part. With candle light lit around to make him feel soothing. The reaction to this is he sleeps. He told me a few things that He feels lazy to continue He feels lazy to take bath the next day. I mean head bath He gets disturbed when it's getting late (after 12 am) .so he doesn't feel like having sex. The worst part is he never asked me anything till now. I do it by myself with so much interest I am feeling shy that as a girl I do it. I think I overdo it. He never asked me even once for a blowjob since 10 months of our marriage. He sleeps off all the time. At night we ll be lying on bed I start with my hand I find him asleep in a few min. Nowadays I stopped. What I wonder alot is. I am everything to him what a man would actually desire. More than what is on porn I can say. I do so much for him. It's not just stripteasing, it would be a dance to, And lastly he has a problem if we have contact on a day the next days at times not always I feel like having he shouts at me. Or if I ask two three days later he says we just had a few days ago now what. I don't get sleep Normally I feel disturbed and keep asking him whether he is awake or he slept and irritate him. He laughs at me. At times ,Saying y r you moving like that when I am teasing him. He laughs when I make noises during sex. Nowadays when I give him a blowjob or when I am over him wearing a night dress I don't find him looking at me. I find him looking at the wall in a deep thought. Past few times we did. There was a problem His penis was erect for a minute then It got down it took so much time for him to make it hard and finally it didn't .for which I did not get upset in turn I cheered him up saying its on no problem. I have see his past history. When he was a bachelor lot of porn And he has many girls as friends. He is very handsome very fair. So many girls admire him. I am very emotionally dependant on him and he takes advantage of that. I did not know I'll end up loving someone this much that I would consult a psychologist. Last thing doctor. I remember when ever I used to come to my mother's house and stay. When I go back I check his phone and found porn in history what shocked me was I am more than what is there. I was shocked I asked him. I did not scold him and all. Finally now I don't find but I get restless when. I leave him alone. His last seen at 3 am makes me feel a bit upset. It's incognito mode I feel. As far as I know he used to watch when he was a bachelor and now only when I come to my mother's house I think he watches. He is very attached to his mother. Actually he was in abroad I was happy seeing that I got married but now he is here and doesn't seem like going back .his parents are the main cause. Now too after coming back from office he never comes to the room because of his mother he feels what she ll think. Whether she is alone sitting in the hall. He ll everyday go talk to the mother nicely then only come inside the room. Mother is very possessive. If we go out together she has a change in her behavior. I had faced a lot of possessiveness from her side went through depression first few months now know how to tackle her. I would like to know what is the problem. How should I behave.

It is a common problem among men in the present times. There are many Psychological factors like anxiety, guilt or depression can also be the cause of premature ejaculation. First of all start eating a healthy diet like green vegetables like spinach, cabbage, kale etc contribute in male enhancement. Also citrus fruits like avocado, orange, and lemon that are rich in Vitamin B9. Avoid junk foods, smoking, alcohol consumption, avoid dairy products and sour items. Try some tips like think about something else during intercourse or use thicker condoms (Thicker condoms can reduce sensitivity and helps you last longer during intercourse). Take more time in foreplay and try some oral sex, gentle sex, slow sex Don't copy porn star Do YOGA and breathing exercise and running will give much of benefits. Also you can concern with us, if you want fast result. We provide therapies as well as ayurvedic medicines. You can also go through our courses regarding your problem.

Actually I am taking too much stress, if there is no reason for it how can I handle it?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

Actually I am taking too much stress, if there is no reason for it
how can I handle it?
First of all, the intensity of stress is in the perception. Change your perception, there is no stress: it’s like looking at a glass half full or half empty. Apart from that, all your emotions need to be dealt with by expression i.e. You need to talk about the feelings. Then you need to exercise regularly, eat fiber foods (whole grains, fruits and vegetables), sleep at least 8 hours every day, learn Yoga and meditation, learn stress management, and do a personality development course. Life is difficult no doubt, as a general rule, but what we do adds to the stress in our response. We add to the stress of life instead of reducing it or learning to deal with it. Many of us follow a policy of avoidance. We cannot do that all of our lives. So the first thing to do is to change your perception. For example, look at it as a challenge that you would like to meet with a positive outlook. See everything as a gift from God to perform as though you are doing it for Him. God never gives us work to do beyond our capacity. Now you may argue that it is the Government that is giving all the work. That is true in the overt sense, but if you look at it with spiritual eyes, you know that it is ultimately given by God. Secondly, build a good constitution mentally, emotionally and physically to combat stress. Eat healthily, sleep well, and exercise regularly. Talk about your emotions regularly to a good friend every day. Learn stress management techniques. Do Yoga and meditation. Pray every day to God to give you the strength, and offer your work as a prayer to Him – you will give your best and you will feel so satisfied when you do it well. These should see you through successfully without the stress.

I am 18 Year Old and am a college student .Really I don't know but am feeling like .really do I need an outing or something? I really hate my life now. I can't even explain what am feeling now. All of my other friends are so happy, they are shopping for Christmas and visiting places, meeting,and hang outs. My walls are filled with their selfish and pictures. And I hate seeing myself like this in my bed room, locked up and I want to go out but then I remember what are left to study and I sit to study and then I remember all these pics and I couldn't concentrate. I feel like left alone. Nobody misses me and then I don't want to brag in also. What is happening? I don't know.

You are probably depressed from anger. Studies has a place in your student life but it should not take all the place. You are young and should go out and have fun. At your age this claim is serious. If you have depression then there are some major ramifications to take into account. I believe there may be some genetic predisposition or there has been some childhood issue, related to anger, that needs urgent attention. You must go and meet with a counselor immediately and if that person advises that you meet with a doctor you must do so and cooperate to your utmost. Please visit these professionals along with your parents. In the meantime please do the following sincerely because you could resolve the problem better with good cooperation: Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber, nuts, avocado, exercise regularly, eat dark chocolate, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. I suggest you do the opposite of what this depression makes you feel like doing (actually, not doing): you will need to fight this condition. You must become active; stay upright during the daylight time; meet people; never sleep during the day, wake up by 6 am every day, play some active games, especially contact games, do physical exercises, talk to people and join some social clubs, attend Yoga classes etc. Watch sitcoms on TV or comedies and cheer yourself up. Go for excursions in groups, for outings, camps, conferences, and religious conventions. Get a pet dog and spend time training it, exercising it and relating to it. Expose yourself to some sunlight every day, at least, 30 minutes but not in the scorching heat. Whatever happens, please incorporate these three important adaptations in your life: always be responsible, be respectful, and be functional. If you did these three, lots of things will go well in life. Please pray and have faith in God to alleviate your sufferings. Don’t wait for others to help. Use your own motivation, which might be at its lowest, but persevere and win this battle. Above all to be really happy, you need to live in love and for love. Learn all about emotions and how to handle them and that will get you out of the depression rather easily and quickly. A counselor is there only to facilitate you, all the hard word must come from you, and your cooperation with that person is very critical for your success. Be positive every day and learn to be contented with what you have. Do some left brain exercises: it is the happy brain. Here are a few suggestions: shut your left nostril and breathe, move your eyes from right to left and vice versa for at least half a minute at a time, and do calisthenic exercises with some form of counting, regularly. Whatever happens please cooperate with the therapy and do not discontinue until the condition is completely resolved. As regards the concentration you are sure to have hormonal imbalances which may impact your memory because of the chemical but also the distractions that come with it; together with depression I can imagine your problems. But you may work on the following even if the hormones kick in: Daily exercise of at least half an hour is a must. Even if you go to a gym, ask for aerobic and/or callisthenic exercises with whatever else you are doing. A healthy body harbors a healthy mind. With regard to memory, it is very important that your brain and body is ideally rested to be able to recall whatever is required, rather comfortably. Puzzles pose problems to the brain that help it to use new pathways and neurons, which give the brain considerable exercise. It taxes the left brain to use logic to solve the myriad possibilities which other activities do not stimulate. Crosswords are excellent for vocabulary learning and use. Jigsaws and Rubik cube stimulate different permutations to finally settle on the most likely one. Picture completion and anagrams help approach problem solving from several angles. Do Sudoku, and memory co-relation activities and skills. Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber (whole grains, fruits and vegetables), nuts, avocado, eat dark chocolate, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. You need to check out if you are stronger visual or auditory. The visual is a better mode than the auditory. However, if you combine the two modes, you will get the best concentration. Have a special place of learning, which should be well lit, with soft painted walls, well-ventilated, with no distractions. When you get bored, study by writing. If you repeat learning at least five to seven times, you will apparently remember for a longer time. Sit comfortably but do not slouch. The reading material should be of a fairly large print. Study at small intervals of about 40 minutes and then take a break or change the subject. Short-term memory is a faculty of the left brain, and long-term memory is a feature of the right brain. When people are stressed, they tend to favor the right brain and abandon the left brain, where short-term memory resides. So, it is really very simple: deal with the stress and activate left brain functions. Here are a few suggestions to activate left brain function: shut your left nostril and breathe, move your eyes from right to left and vice versa for at least half a minute at a time, and do callisthenic exercises with some form of counting, regularly. There are some memory enhancing techniques and study methods that your teacher will be able to guide you with. If your home life is full of distractions and stress, it is likely to affect your memory, adversely. In that case, I suggest that the family goes for counseling.

Dear Lybrate User, I understand. It is important to explore the reasons behind your depression. If your depression is leading you to think negatively, here are a few things you can try: 1. If you are used to walking into a room and finding negative things, next time try to walk into a room and find 3 positive things instead. 2. Keep a gratitude journal: At the end of each day write down 5 things that you are thankful for that happened in your day. It can be something as small as having a good meal. 3. Do one thing everyday that calms you or makes you happy: start your day with something that has a calming effect on you like meditation or yoga or something that makes you happy like a good cup of coffee. Please consult privately for further help. Good luck.
