hi ...appreciate your courage to seek help! You seem to be struggling with boundary issues and thats creating alot of confusion in your mind. Your issue requires lot more details and exploration , thus I suggest you to seek counselling as it will help you immensely . Regarding masturbation, its not harmful if done in moderation and only to release your sexual excitement to give pleasure to yourself. but if you are masturbating compulsively and not enjoying the act, then you need to seek help. Counselling can help you with this issue too. All the best.
24 years old female from Delhi asked
Hello doctor I did love marriage marriage ko one n half year hogaya. I have one baby he is fr four months now n life is so problematic now my is husband is not supportive. He use to scold me without any reason. Mjh se cheek trh se baat bhi nahii karta. He talks to me wid disrespect and abhi m apni mom dad k yaha hu as I mentioned that mnne love marriage ki thi to my mom also use to say such things bht kchh sunna padta h I am so depressed kabhi kbhii bht suicidal thoughts aate hainn mind m pls help me to get out of it plsssss.
Hi,...it must be very confusing and hurtful for you to see your husband treat you in ways not respectful. You are feeling sad as your mother seems to be holding you responsible for all that is happening in your life. You are also feeling lonely as there doesn't seem to be any support around you. A lot must have changed around you since your marriage, trying to settle in a married life itself brings a lot of challenges and now you have a baby to take care of. Gather yourself up, see how brave you have been to handle so many changes. Your body must be recuperating from childbirth, and yes you do need support from your people around you. Tell them that you need their support in various dimensions. Talk to your husband about things around him. See if your time together with your husband has reduced after your child's birth. Notice since when has his behaviour changed towards you. Let him know how important he is to you, also tell him what you loved about him and are missing that. Take out some time exclusively for him, try to put your child to sleep early and utilise that time to be with your husband sharing quality time together. To your parents, try to hear out all their concerns for you and also tell them how important they are to you . Show them your love. Tell them how much of their support you need. I'm sure they will be willing to let go of their anger over your marriage and accept your husband as a part of the family. In doing all this stay calm and receptive. And in order to be calm and receptive you need to take care of yourself first. Begin a routine for your physical well being and love yourself for your mental well being. Doing a love marriage is not a crime and you don't have to feel guilty over it. Eat well, sleep well, go out with your friends, do things that used to give you happiness and satisfaction. If your husband or parents are not cooperating then you can seek family or couple counselling to work on the relationships. Whatever happens keep faith in yourself, you are a strong girl and will not allow suicidal thoughts to overcome your living spirit. Just that things are overwhelmingly non favourable for you, you are feeling hopeless. But little effort and lots of self care and open communication with your people maybe helpful. There is always help available, you can always consult a counsellor to work out a solution around your area. Take care of yourself!!
21 years old male from Jamshedpur asked
I am 21 year old. And I been hurted in my head a year ago when I was travelling in a car so a big jerk came and the car jerk on that so my head was hurted from the car roofs and that time it was just the pain for hours. But after a week it started creating problems like I feel that my concentration and memory level is been decreased. It has been year passed what should I do. It could be a blood clot or what.
Hi. It's unlikely that the impact would have created memory loss for you. If you are worried about there being blood clot then it's better to get checked/scanned than to live in speculation. Visit a neurologist and discuss your concerns.
27 years old female from Korba asked
My question is psychologic. I am a good looking fair boy. One year ago I had married with a girl which is whitish in color and not too beautiful not ugly. I done marriage under the pressure of my parents. Now I am feeling complexion as I look my all frds wife they are almost everyone fair and beautiful. And now I feel complexion to go to any party and also when I look to my wife I feel cheated and I am not talking with her very nicely. I am not going to any public place with her inspite of her nature is very nice. Help.
hi, you are looking at the shallow aspect of life. If you wanted to marry a beautiful fair girl then you could have told your parents about it instead of getting married under pressure and hurting your wife for no fault of hers! You maybe finding it hard because your wife doesn't fit the category of beautiful that you were looking for in your spouse but there are other aspects to a person's personality other than beauty. You mentioned that your wife is nice by nature, will it be possible to accept her for her niceness which is a boon these days....connect with her other qualities, connect to the person she is, at a human level. How would it have been if your wife was beautiful but not 'nice', would you be happy then? You feeling conscious about taking your wife among your get-togethers has got to do with your own unacceptable of her as she is. How much happy are your friends in their married life is a secret best known to them. The day you will learn to connect with her at humane level, you may realise her true beauty which will only enhance with the growing years together, skin beauty will only fade with time and it's the emotional connect that you will build with her will last for long. So look deeper into her as a living being with feelings and emotions and don't judge her for her colour. She too has the right to reject you for the way you treat her but she is being kind to you. Spend some quality time together and explore each others likes, wants, needs and dreams. This will bring to your notice other truly beautiful aspects of each other and help in creating a secure relationship.
29 years old female from Rewa asked
My sister - 28 years old - is suffering from schizophrenia. She is taking medical treatment right now. She's having this problem of auditory hallucinations, (very much) forgetfulness (in the sense that she needs instructions daily for almost everything), lethargic in nature almost in everything, being depressive in nature, negative and suicidal thoughts, etc. There are other signs and symptoms as well which sometimes come and go. She started telling all these things when she was 15-16 years. Earlier problem was not so much. It was like memory loss in the beginning. She couldn't remember things. She started being slow in daily chores and then came depression. After 4-5 years other signs and symptoms followed. In the beginning stages of the illness, my family members didn't pay much attention to it thinking that she's deliberately complaining because she doesn't want to do anything including studies. We're family of 8 in which there are 5 sisters and one brother and parents. So initially the problem was ignored for almost 4-5 years. Then she was taken to general physician who referred her to psychiatric care in Allahabad. But after taking medicines from there, she started to suffer from temporary memory loss in such a way that we needed to instruct her for almost everything, it was like she lost control of life. After that came auditory hallucinations, negative and suicidal thoughts, and more troubling depression. We consulted another psychiatric clinic, but her condition didn't improve. Her habits didn't change. She's still depressive. Most of the times she remains idle and like idol. Most of the times she wouldn't know what to do next. All she care about are non essential things. She complains also that medicines are giving her no health benefits. Apart from that she's continuously gaining weight. She doesn't have any idea that she's an adult now, not a child anymore, her way of life is instructive, not natural though. I think her problem is chronic. Now my parents are wanting her to get married. At this stage, with all these issues with my sister, would you recommend my sister to get married? Would you say that she should (at this stage) get married so probably after marriage she can get better? It's worrisome to think about it. And is there any hope?
Hi, appreciate your concern for your sister. Auditory hallucinations are signs of schizophrenia. Your sister needs holistic care, that is, along with medication she needs to be under counselling. You and your family members too will need to know more about schizophrenia and what help you all can provide to each other and to your sister. Marriage is not a miracle cure for problems and diseases. Marriage involves other set of people, their dreams and aspirations for life, hence it's not an option to be chosen carelessly. Besides your sister will not be able to cope up with the additional challenges that come with married life. Focus on helping your sister to gain some amount of functionality to help herself. Sit with your sister's psychiatrist and understand about the disease and the treatment plan. If you are not satisfied with the treatment from the current psychiatrist then seek second opinion by visiting a clinic that specializes in treatment for schizophrenia and like, and continued counselling sessions are a must along with medication.

This is a case of social phobia and lack of hygiene and disconnect from everyone can also be signs of depression. This person you are talking about needs immediate medical as well as therapy intervention. Do take him to a counsellor/psychologist, who will assess whether he needs psychiatric help. Also continued psychotherapy will be required in this case.

Am starts crying when remember all that .please give me advice how I can recover from this situation and concentrate on my career. What I do now.
Hi. It takes a lot of conviction and courage to stand by what one has decided and in your case you have stood your ground, be proud of it! your pain is understandable, you are probably feeling betrayed, hurt, confused and even rejected. It is difficult and painful to let go of a relationship that meant so much to you and to have it repeat again, can be devastating. Be gentle with yourself and don't indulge in self doubt. Any relationship is based on respect, trust, care and understanding, open communication being vital element. If you sensed that there wasn't much honesty from your partner, then trusting him would have been difficult. Don't blame yourself over it. You are very young and there will be many opportunities to meet the right kind of person for you. Concentrate on building up your career goals and close relationships (family and friends), this will provide a sound holding or support for you. If you still find yourself upset for longer time then consult a counsellor/psychologist to explore further. Take care.
0 year old male from Lucknow asked
I am too depressed as I am in a relationship in which he black mails me ki me tumhe badnaam kerduga papa ko goli maarduga he is vry powerful I am depressed I have attempted suicide also no one is there to share my feelings as my parents expectations are high from me I don't wanna broke them I feel sometimes I need a psychiatrist but don't I feel is it I am mental or what? Please advise.
Hi, you seem to be in an abusive relationship and it, obviously is having very negative impact on you. He is using your fears regarding your image in your parents eyes as a weakness and blackmailing you. This behaviour will become worse with time. You need to talk to your parents or helpful siblings who can help you. Why it's important to involve your parents is firstly, your fears will be addressed, secondly, being elders they will be able to help you more sensibly. Yes there is every possibility of your parents getting angry with you but their anger may not last long because they love you and want the best for you. Putting up with your parents anger is better than going through this abusive relationship with your boyfriend which may have long-lasting impact over your mental health and future relationships. If you have other trusted family members who can help you in this, you can take their help too if parental help is not an option for you. Take care.
21 years old male from Anantapur asked
I have been masturbating excessively I am unable to control it . Does it causes for pimples .I have been worrying about it. please give suggestions.
Masturbation doesn't cause pimples. Masturbation, when done under moderation and only for self pleasure, does not cause any harm. It becomes a problem only when you feel a compulsion to do it and don't enjoy it either, which seems to be the issue in your case. Do consult a psychologist or sexologist to assess your situation and guide you further.
30 years old male from Hyderabad asked
I am 30 recently married my wife doesn't have interest in sex. I have tried different types of foreplay for getting into mood but no use she doesn't feel anything when ever we talk about sex she is getting angry on me she does want to talk on sex Please tell how to solve this problem. For this issue our relationship is in trouble now.
It's very frustrating and confusing when one of the partner appears to be very elusive of an intimate part of the relationship. Lack of intimacy does impact the relationship in many ways. Meet a sexologist and relationship therapist or a psychologist along with your wife to understand what's happening in the relationship and what's stopping your wife from indulging in intimacy. Don't ignore or delay thinking that time will make everything alright. The sooner you resolve this issue, the better it will be. All the best.
year old female from Mumbai asked
One of my friends bf wants to do sex with her. But she do not want to do it before their marriage. Thats the reason their relationship are in a very bad condition. Her bf always upset .he starts ignoring her. What she can do .to save their relationship.& she is virgin too. So she is little bit scared to do sex. Suggest some solution.
hi, Ask your friend to talk to him and understand what sex really means to him, listen to him patiently acknowledging his frustration along with explaining to him about her concern and why the decision is important for her. If your friends bf really loves her then he will have regard for her concern and will be supportive and understanding. But if he is continuing his distancing and hurting behaviour then she needs to consider whether she's willing to bear with such kind of forceful and manipulative behaviour for rest of her life or she can look for other options .
25 years old male from Mumbai asked
Hi, my boyfriend break up with me 2 weeks later. We were in relationship for 3 months. And in this 3 months we met once. That was our first date. He even lip lock and huggged me on first date. I don't wanted to do it but he was so much hurry for those things. Reason for break up first he told lets be happy in happiness of parents. Then he told after 2-3 days he was not happy with me. I truly loved and trusted him alot. I can't understand what he was doing with me and what he wanted actually. Because after break up also he told me wants to be my best friend for life. He dint even removed me still from social networking sites i.es, Facebook and watsapp. He was caring and understanding alot that made me loved him seriously and truly. I can't forget him anyhow now. Also I miss him alot but I can't tell him whats there actually in my mind. It's like I can't concentrate anywhere he's always on my mind. After break up he also txt me 2-3 times but I dint replied him. But still I can't understand y he has kept me on social networking sites if he don't love me. Even I told him I don't want to b his friend now. Please help me. I'M totally in depression.Please tell sir.
Hi, you are feeling betrayed, hurt, angry and sad over how your boyfriend has distanced himself from you. You are going through a difficult phase in terms of your emotions and maybe hoping he might come back to you again and hence cognitively you are trying to understand why he hasn't disconnected with you over the social network sites. He may have his own reasons to justify his decision and what he does is not in your control. What you can do is understand and get in touch with what's happening to you. Are you happy in this state? what would you like to do now? do you see any future with this guy who is finding it hard to commit and stay in the relationship? how does it matter whether he hasn't deleted your contact from those sites? it's also important to understand that usually boys and girls are in an exploratory phase around this age trying to understand how and with whom they are able to relate, and in this process there are heartaches for some. You have displayed a huge amount of courage by not replying back to his messages and it shows you value yourself, which is really good. This time is very critical for you in terms of your career or future goals, so start thinking about your goals and make efforts to work towards them. You can also block him from your networks if it gives you some amount of relief/freedom and also allow yourself to feel your pain. Gradually you will be out of it and looking life in the face with renewed zeal. So take care of yourself and give yourself your attention.
30 years old female from Hyderabad asked
My son is 6 years old. He is studying in second standard, he is healthy and active .but when he study for the exams he will forgot all what he studied. please suggest .
Hi, is there some kind of pressure around studies on your son? how is the home environment and relationship of family members with each other. If the child has no diagnosed history of learning difficulty, then he will generally do well. Be observant about your and others behaviour towards his education. Undue pressure and expectation will only create problems for him. You can make studies a fun activity, allowing him to ask more and more questions and providing him with answers. You can play memorising games with him and lovingly teach him ways to memorize if something seems difficult. Let him be curious about things around him, and allow him to learn through exploration. Talk to him what he likes about school, teachers and studies and what he doesn't like about them. Identify what is challenging for him. Let him have fixed timings for study and play. Follow a schedule for good diet. Seek help of counsellor for further guidance.
23 years old female from Panipat asked
I have been feeling low lately. I wish to be left out alone yet I want to understand why I am doing this to myself. I hv severed my bonds with my siblings and it has reached a stage where I cnt bear evn talking to them on phn after months. Life seems hopeless. I get sad far too often evn whn things are goin jst fine. Future haunts me. I dnt knw whthr I need help or its jst a phase where I hv gone nuts. And one mre thing, I hv always hd phases like this. Bt they were short. something always pulled me out of this mood. But now, am scared if I end up doing something irreversible.Please tell.
Hi, if you find yourself very energetic for some period followed by a period of extreme sadness or depression and see this cycle repeating itself, then you could be suffering from bipolar disorder. And if that's the case then do consult a psychiatrist soon as you may need medication treatment. Along with medicines, you will also need to be under counselling. But don't worry, you will be able to manage your mood and get some relief, but it's really important to remain under counselling. Take care.
25 years old female from Gurgaon asked
I am quite active and jolly type of girl. I always used to to every work on time and perfectly without depending on others. From few days, do not know what's going on as I just used to sleep all the time just got wake up for office only. Its not in my hand to wake up early if I wish to. Don't know what's going on. Everything is going fine in my life except some marital problems from last 4-5 months. Pls suggest what should I do. Should I need to consult a psychiatric?
You seem to be stressed. You mentioned that there is some marital problems going on since past few months, it's likely that you are disturbed by them and your energy is low. Don't ignore these issues, instead be proactive to resolve them. Be open to seek help if things don't get sorted out between you too. I will suggest you go for couple counselling with your spouse to understand and sort out the differences. The earlier you tackle them, the lesser the heartache later. All the best!
39 years old male from Chandigarh asked
My son is 8.5 yes old he developed a complex in himself that his friends won't play with him they always make laugh of him which is quite true too. I don't under stand how to overcome his phobia, please help.
Your son doesn't have a phobia. His fears and reactions are based on real experience. His friends are laughing at him and he is feeling bullied. As a parent you have to accept and acknowledge his feelings of hurt, rejection, sadness etc. Don't try to brush aside what he is going through. He is just 8.5 years old and requires your support. Talk to him about what is happening, why are the friends laughing at him and what would he like to happen instead. You can accompany your son to the play area just to give him a secured feeling and calmly observe his interaction with his friends, if the boys are being rude, help your son to say out to them how he feels because of their behaviour. What is most important here is your son should not feel like something is wrong about himself because somebody not being nice to you doesn't mean that you are bad. If these kids are too rough and not the right kind for your son then encourage him to seek out other kids who may like to do activities that he too enjoys. Also encourage him to play on his own, this will also provide him curious moments to explore and understand his surroundings and he can learn to entertain himself all by himself. Never try to push him to go and retaliate or label him weak if he is unable to give back what other kids are doing to him. Definitely encourage him to speak up for himself about what's okay and what's not okay. Let him know that you are there for him and he is not alone. Give your love and support to your child, and help him to learn life's lessons from such challenges and don't get overwhelmed by them. As a parent, you need to feel secure and only then can you pass it on. So relax, take few deep breaths and have fun with your kid.
38 years old female from Delhi asked
I am having Depression since 2 days. I have taken my medicine but it has not helped please advice. I can't eat I can't sleep. continuously the worrying thought is coming in my mind. I am not able to concentrate or take proper interest in things as earlier.
Hi, you must be feeling uninterested in daily routine, also frustrated about the fact that something is not alright! you have mentioned that you are under depression for past two days and are on medications since but not seeing any change. Well, you will have to give sometime for the medicine show some effect. So be patient and meanwhile you can do other activities to feel better like spend some time with close friends, go for movie, watch comedy serials, pursue some hobby, go for walk, do exercise, eat balanced food, listen to music, keep yourself engaged in some activity. Have fixed timings for meals and sleep. Sleep n wake up at same time irrespective of whether you get sleep or not. It's also important to look for the reasons for your depression. I hope your doctor has referred you to a counsellor to unburden yourself off your pain and issues. If you aren't seeing any counselor then do so asap. Take care.
20 years old female from Adilabad asked
In 10th class my percentage is 87%, in intermediate my percentage is 85%, in b. Tech I failed subjects. So please give me some tips to gain interest. And what food items gives more interest?
Hi, you have scored really well in your 10th and intermediates. If you aren't able to study well in your b. Tech then either you are not interested in the course and doing it maybe because you have been told to do so. You need to figure out what and where does your interest lie. Is this the course that would help you in your chosen career. If yes then try to create a schedule for your study. Chunk your portions into doable sets and follow your time table. Don't leave your studies for last moment exam panics. Make study a regular habit and you will be able to achieve the percentage that you wish to get. All the best!
21 years old male from Delhi asked
Hello doctor. I love her girl for 8 standard. Many ups and downs but my relation continue for after pass the 12 th class some days then avoided me and then result is breakup and for 15 months I not forgot this girl. But girl enter a new relation. How can forgot this girl. But girl check my last seen and send a message for a fake id then fight for a still boyfriend. How can forgot these things. I talk with me for every place. My mind not a exact place and think the girl every time. How can forgot this girl. My studies suffer this activities.
It must be very painful for you to have let go of a relationship that you were holding on for long time sailing through the ups and downs of the same. You have grieved for really long, 15 months is too long! about time to let go of her, she has clearly indicated that she has moved on and you should too. Ups and downs are good acid tests for relationships, you may also need to see your role in them. Learn from your mistakes and give life another chance. You may need to forgive and forget her, not for her sake but for yours. This is your life and what you want to do with it, depends on you. Whether you choose to ruin it because your girl friend has left you or you want to give priority to other important things in life like your studies, then career, your family etc is up to you. I'm sure you value your parents, your studies and other people around you, and who might be there to support you and care for you. Life is beautiful and you have choice to make it even more beautiful. So throw away any gift or pic or things you may have of her, delete her contact num and don't try to connect with her. Do it not because you want to hate her but because you want to free yourself from those memories. Don't hold any kind of grudge against her either. Just let her go from your mind. Don't try hard to forget. Just look at other things around you that need your attention, go around with friends, have fun, make schedule for your studies, set goals for your career, dream big. And when you focus on all the goods around you and the loving people that you have, forgetting her won't be difficult. Indulge in self care and love yourself. Take care.
