Financial Issues Between A Couple!

Financial Issues Between A Couple!

Financial issues can crop up between a couple, and if not sorted out in time, it has the potential to disrupt marital bliss. From the 19 th century to the 21 st century, the financial dependence of women on men has had a gradual transformation to financial independence. Yet financial issues between couples have not ebbed.

Having Different Spending and Saving Habits

The most common thread of discord among couples relates to spending habits. Sometimes it is the woman who likes to splurge on clothes and accessories, while the man likes to save every penny. Sometimes it is the man who likes to spend on booze and gambling and the woman likes to save. Sometimes both of them may be splurging on the stuff of their liking and they blame each other for not saving enough.

Debt Positions

Most people live with loans, be it credit card loans, car loans, home loans or something else. As couples discuss each other’s debt position, sparks may start flying if one has an awful record of taking loans and repayments.

Financial Obligations

Most often, while discussing financial matters, couples don’t take into consideration each other’s obligations. If one has inherited a debt from his/her late parents, one may have to repay it. This is an obligation that people have to meet if they don’t want to let go of the property which had been mortgaged to secure the loan. However, the wife may not try to understand this obligation on her husband’s part. Sparks may fly
between those couples regarding such financial obligations.

Power Play

Power play between partners can arise when one earns and the other does not. It may also arise when one of the partners does not have a job or one earns considerably more than the other. If one of the partners hails from a rich family and the other has a modest financial background, it may also cause power play between them. In all these cases, one with more income, a rich family background or the sole earning member may want to dictate spending or saving terms. This can cause friction between the partners.

Expenditure Related to Children

Having children is bliss, but raising them is expensive. It can cause friction between the partners if one wants to have more children than the other. If one partner wants two or more children, but the other is worried about the cost of raising more than one child, it may cause a squabble between them. At the end of the day, it boils down to being a financial issue.

Caring for Extended Family

One may need to take a loan to provide medical aid to his/her parents or to help his/her brother who has lost his job. However, the other partner may be upset with that person for this. It may result in bickering.

Whatever the case might be, it is important for partners to resolve any financial issue that may arise. And in case they are not able to resolve it themselves, they can get in touch with an experienced Psychologist to get a professional resolution.

8 Ways To Prevent Alzheimer's Disease!

8 Ways To Prevent Alzheimer's Disease!

Alzheimer’s disease is a neurological, irreversible, progressive brain disorder. It is a chronic neurodegenerative dementia that causes the death of brain cells, causing memory loss and cognitive decline. It affects a person’s thinking and behavior. The symptoms develop slowly and get worse as time passes.

Causes:
As it is a kind of dementia, Alzheimer’s is caused by the death of brain cells. Over a course of time, brain cells die progressively and at the end, the tissue is left with fewer nerve cells and connections. As a result, the total brain size shrinks. Tiny inclusions called plaques and tangles can be seen in the postmortem. These cannot be seen or tested in a living Alzheimer’s affected brain. These plaques are given the name “amyloid plaques” because they are found among the dying cells of the brain when a protein called beta-amyloid builds. The tangles stay in the neurons; they are formed from a protein called tau.

There are several reasons behind all this, some of which are listed below-

  1. Anti-anxiety medications
  2. Hitting on the head too many times
  3. Regularly sleep-deprived
  4. Loneliness
  5. Diabetes in the brain
  6. Old age
  7. Genetic line
  8. Down’s syndrome
  9. Cardiovascular diseases

Symptoms:
Alzheimer’s disease damages the brain, so the clinical signs and symptoms begin to show very early. The symptoms are-

  1. Memory loss
  2. Agitation and mood swings
  3. Poor judgment
  4. The trouble with money calculations
  5. Difficulty doing familiar tasks
  6. Trouble in planning or solving a problem
  7. Confusion with time and place
  8. Difficulty in communicating
  9. Loss of motivation
  10. Inappropriate behavior
  11. Aggressive personality
  12. Childlike behavior

Preventing Alzheimer’s disease:
Alzheimer’s disease ultimately results in death. Even if there are treatments, they cannot fully cure it. So it’s better to try to prevent it before it happens. Ways to prevent Alzheimer’s disease are-

  1. Eating more fruits and vegetables.
  2. Eating berries every day.
  3. Increasing omega-3 fatty acids.
  4. Taking folic acid supplements.
  5. Drinking grape juice or red wine with evening meal.
  6. Doing the Mediterranean style diet.
  7. Controlling the blood pressure.
  8. Having strong social support.

Treatment of Alzheimer’s disease:

  1. Treatment of Alzheimer’s disease is a long time process.
  2. First of all, doctors perform a physical exam to check the overall neurological health. By this, they check muscle strength, reflexes, walking ability, sense of sight and hearing, coordination and balance.
  3. Then comes the blood test to find the cause of confusion and memory loss by checking the thyroid disorder and vitamin deficiency.
  4. Then they perform the neuropsychological test and check the mental status.
  5. Then there are other tests, like MRI, CT, and PET.
  6. After all this, drugs are given and a safe and supportive environment is created with proper exercise and nutrition.

Alzheimer’s disease is undoubtedly the worst kind of disease. Hence, it is highly recommended to contact a doctor as soon as any symptom is noticed.

Parkinson's Disease - How To Track It Early?

Parkinson's Disease - How To Track It Early?

Neurology is the branch of science and medicine dealing with the central and peripheral nervous system. The nervous system is made of the brain and spinal cord. The disorders, illness or injuries of the nervous system can become problematic for people suffering from them. One of the worst diseases of the nervous system is Parkinson’s disease.

It is a progressive disorder affecting the central nervous system that leads to slowing down of movement and slurring of speech over a period of time. It is a condition where the nerve cells in the brain producing dopamine (a neurotransmitter) are affected.

Some of the early signs of Parkinson’s include:

  1. Tremor: If you have noticed a slight shaking of your hands or limbs, then Parkinson’s might be the cause. The trembling can range from mild to severe as the disease progresses. The back-and-forth rubbing of your thumb and forefinger is known as pill-rolling tremor. One of the most prominent signs is your hand shaking even when it is rested.
  2. Bradykinesia (slow movement): As the disease progresses, you may find it difficult to move your hands or legs or going from one place to another. Even making the smallest movement will require an increased effort on your part.
  3. Rigid Muscles: The muscles in your body can become stiff causing you pain and making it difficult to perform physical activities.
  4. Masked Face: Your face may experience spasms or become stiff periodically. It can also lead to complete paralysis on one side of the face.
  5. Stooping or improper balance: Having Parkinson’s disease can make your body posture imbalanced resulting in stooping or hunching over.
  6. Decreased Automatic Movements: You may experience difficulty in smiling, blinking or swinging your arms while walking.
  7. Alteration in voice or speaking: Your voice can become soft or you may slur while talking. You can also experience a monotonous voice.
  8. Writing may become small: You can experience changes in your handwriting as it becomes small and crowded.
  9. Loss of Smell: The smell of food sitting right in front of you may not register in your olfactory resulting in loss of appetite.
  10. ConstipationHaving Parkinson’s disease can lead to patients experiencing irritable bowel syndrome.
  11. Have Trouble SleepingIt might be difficult to fall asleep for people suffering from Parkinson’s. Also, there are sudden movements during the sleeping process.
  12. DizzinessPeople suffering from Parkinson’s may faint from time to time.

These were some of the symptoms and signs by which you can tell whether a person has Parkinson’s or not. However, as of now it is not curable and can only be treated with medicines. But, early detection can definitely help in preventing it from affecting the whole body.

Change your routine and avoid triggers Have a look at your current routine and identify the times you smoke – with a cup of coffee in the morning, after a meal, or with lunch. You will need to make changes to your routine and break those habits. If you have coffee and a smoke in the morning, try drinking tea instead. Cigarette after a meal? Go for a short walk.

Hi, I am 22 years old. Male. I studied b. Sc nursing. I Have some mental illness. I am getting over angry. I am getting aggressive even small things. I lost my concentration. Some times I speaks lonely. I feel worthless. Hopeless. Helpless. Daily I am getting suicidal thoughts. When I was in first year. I lost my friend (he did suicide because of his family problems) I felt so depressed in that time. Some times he start to speak with me. (is it hallucination) night mares also.

You may be in serious trouble and need immediate help. I understand you're losing your friend in such a manner may be quite unbearable but your reaction to it doesn't augur well in terms of your coping. This may be because you already have a predisposition towards some disturbance and that might have gotten activated. Please meet a doctor immediately and a counselor. You must work with both the professionals to get the best results. Needless to say your cooperation is critical to your recovery. 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, spend time in nature or gardening, 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.

Hi lybrate-user, yes ayurveda treatment available for OCD. Western medicine has found that OCD usually develops from a combination of genetic and environmental factors. In Ayurvedic tradition, conditions like OCD are linked to an imbalance within the bodies delicate biochemistry. According to Ayurveda, mental health concerns develop when one of the primary doshas is out of balance. *Vata imbalance can contribute to anxiety, fear and insomnia *Pitta imbalance can cause anger, compulsions and irritability *Kapha imbalance can lead to lethargy and depression In most cases of OCD, the Vata dosha is especially aggravated and out of balance. A variety of different factors can cause this imbalance. These include: *Diet and digestion: The accumulation of toxins Stress Lack of exercise Ayurvedic treatment for OCD and related anxiety conditions seeks to re-balance your biochemistry through the removal of toxins and restoration of healthy physiological functioning. This multifaceted approach often involves the following, in consultation with our Ayurvedic doctors or consultants. *Lifestyle modifications *Counselling *Prescription of kitchen and medicinal herbal medicines *Instruction in gentle yoga postures and breathing exercises *Prescription of Ayurvedic rejuvenating massage and detoxing treatments including: *AbhyangaAbhyanga or herbal oil massage treatment, which involves herbal oils being massaged into the body to penetrate deeply through the skin into the tissue and muscles. It encourages the elimination of stagnant waste and allows nutrients to reach starved cells. The result is an increased state of awareness, directing the body's internal healing system. *Shirodhara or the rebalancing treatment, which involves a continuous flow of herbal oil being poured gently across the forehead to calm the mind and spirit. *Udvartana involves a healing warm oil massage to encourage the elimination of toxins deep within the body and tissues followed by an exfoliation treatment with an Ayurvedic herbal paste to enliven and revitalise the skin. *Panchakarma or Ayurvedic detox, a complete cleansing process used to rid the body of toxic build up and restore balance to the entire system.

The first and most important step is to accept yourself, as you are. That will be the foundation you will build your life on for the rest of your life. Learn to be thankful for what you have Accept the lessons from the past, but have no regrets. The past will never be back. So remember what you learnt and move on Stop worrying about others’ perception about you. For Others, you are just a small part of their lives… but your life is yours 100 percent Be Nice to yourself. If you are overcritical… life becomes a drag Ask everyone you care for, about what they think your strengths are Never ask for feedback on weaknesses. That is a domain you have to explore yourself Learn from the past, do not dwell there. Nothing can be achieved by brooding over the past Remember to communicate. There are never any unique problems. There is a merit to seeking ideas and feedback from people who care for you See that you have no scope for self doubt Be willing to act and accept the learnings from any action Take initiative…. As newer areas of your competency evolve, go ahead take risks The solution for your challenges is to divert the energy within, in a direction that is so inspiring that the anger is no more a priority for you.
