Hi, welcome to lybrate. What you have is more of performance anxiety during sex. I need to understand the thoughts you have while you are getting intimate with someone. Whenever these kinds of anxious thoughts and feelings become attached to sex and performance, the body releases stress hormones that can interfere with sexual arousal and performance. This failure to perform can cause even greater anxiety, resulting in a vicious circle. Knowing how to break the cycle of sexual performance anxiety can help both partners have a healthier sex life and a happier relationship. Take a moment to focus on your breathing before initiating sex. Use that time to clear your head of any thoughts that might distract you or cause you additional anxiety. If you find it impossible to let go of the stresses from that day, try having sex on a less-stressful day instead. Trying and failing when you can't clear your mind will only cause further stress and anxiety. It may also help to meditate before having sex as meditation is known to alleviate anxiety. Enjoy every sensation you are having with your partner, and communicate throughout the experience with your partner. Communication can help alleviate a lot of anxiety and ensure both you and your partner are comfortable throughout the experience. Focus should be on your partner not on yourself.

Dear lybrate-user, I don't know what type of treatment you are taking from psychologist. If it is cognitive therapy it can be anywhere between 5 months to 6 months of weekly sessions. One needs to go step by step in therapy and it takes many sessions. Usually 18-20 sessions will do if you are regular to sessions.

Dear doctor we have come to know that estrogen (estradiol) supply to brain may boost neuron plasticity and regeneration. Please help us by advising the way to supply this female hormone that can cure schizophrenia and the dose. We will be highly obliged and thankful to you.

MBBS, DPM

Dear Rajinder, Schizophrenia is not just neuron plasticity or regeneration. It is due to many complex neurochemicals' imbalances in brain. So estrogens have not yet come into the clinical treatment of schizophrenia. In order to find a cure for schizophrenia, plenty of things are tried in lab or on animals or even humans. Many of them give optimistic findings in lab or animals. The same may not be found in persons suffering from schizophrenia. Right now, it is long term anti-psychotics and other psycho-social methods, are the treatment.

I can't seem to focus on anything. I feel as if I am in a dream. None of my actions are conscious and I am also having problem understanding what people are saying.

I am 22 years old, I get angry often what should I do?

Dear, anger and aggression are emotions. Anger comes when you become irritated. Irritation happens when you don't like something, or when something is repeated. As anger is an emotion, it should be vent out. You should be able to throw anger out instead of controlling it. But more perfect will be, know the frustrating situations and stop being emotional. If practiced properly, you will not get irritated at those circumstances at all. Those techniques are much easier to understand. Take care.

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 callisthenic exercises with some form of counting, regularly. Whatever happens please cooperate with the therapy and do not discontinue until the condition is completely resolved. Discuss your suicidal thoughts with the counselor and remember your life has just begun and you should not do something stupid impulsively. Life is extremely precious and when you sort out the matters, you will love and appreciate life to the fullest. Life is challenging and that is true for everyone.

Anxiety disorders are a category of mental disorders characterized by feelings of anxiety and fear, where anxiety is a worry about future events and fear is a reaction to current events. These feelings may cause physical symptoms, such as a racing heart and shakiness. There are a number of anxiety disorders: including generalized anxiety disorder, a specific phobia, social anxiety disorder, separation anxiety disorder, agoraphobia, and panic disorder among others. While each has its own characteristics and symptoms, they all include symptoms of anxiety. I need to know more about your anxiety so that I will be able to diagnose it properly and provide you tips to overcome and manage your anxiety. Take care.

Hi lybrate-user, everyone is beautiful, we all are, you are. This is not the right basis to make assumptions about yourself. Everything is not based in skin colour and appearance. The right people will realize your worth and stay. Why would you want to stay with people who don't respect you the way you are and see you superficially. You are handsome and no less compared to anyone. Chin up and face everyone. Do not stop looking the right girl will enter your life soon. But yes girls love confident guys. So I guess you need to be one- confident and successful. All the best.

I am sure you are one of those who does not combine medication with therapy. I advise you to seek some counseling together with the medication and you will see so much improvement that you can consider going off of the medication together with the doctor's approval. In the meantime consider the following: 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.

Do deep breathing exercises. Two-minute relaxation: switch your thoughts to yourself and your breathing. Take a few deep breaths, exhaling slowly. Mentally scan your body. Notice areas that feel tense or cramped. Loosen up these areas. Let go of as much tension as you can. Rotate your head in a smooth, circular motion once or twice. (stop any movements that cause pain) roll your shoulders forward and backward several times. Let all of your muscles completely relax. Recall a pleasant thought for a few seconds. Take another deep breath and exhale slowly. How can I learn to relax? mind relaxation: close your eyes. Breathe normally through your nose. As you exhale, silently say to yourself the word" aum" a short word such as" aham brahmasmi" or a short phrase such as" tat tvam asi" continue for 10 minutes. If your mind wanders, gently remind yourself to think about your breathing and your chosen word or phrase. Let your breathing become slow and steady. Deep-breathing relaxation: imagine a spot just below your navel. Breathe into that spot and fill your abdomen with air. Let the air fill you from the abdomen up, then let it out, like deflating a balloon. With every long, slow breath out, you should feel more relaxed.

Hi lybrate-user, first of all if the anxiety symptoms are severe, seek medication from psychiatrist. If you are in a busy place, e. G. Work, school, or general public. Distance yourself, going to a quieter, more secluded place where you can refocus, out of range of surprising or load sounds or many people. Breathe in through your nose, out through your mouth. This helps to slow down your breathing whilst providing your body with the optimum amount of oxygen. It is often tempting to focus on the physical symptoms of an anxiety attack, e. G. Shaking, hot and cold flushes, short and quick breathes, feeling like you want to vomit etc. Definitely acknowledge the physical things you are feeling, but do not focus on them as this can often just make you more anxious. Slow down that breathing. In through your nose, out through your mouth. This is key. Step outside and get some fresh air, take a breather, fresh air definitely helps. Also helpful to remember the anxiety is only something you feel and experience. Anxiety is not who you are. Stay connected to the people around you. It can be tempting to isolate yourself, but friendship and support is so beneficial and everyone needs people around them to help them laugh, and keep things in perspective. Consult for any clarification.
