I also want to control my anger. I loose control on me at the time of anger. But later I realised my mistake. But sometimes it's too late. Suggest me something. I badly need this.

MD, MBBS

You need psychological counseling and training to learn either to avoid or to control or to tolerate or to cope with the anger. You have to learn stress and anger management as well as to manage the situation smartly without hurting g anyone otherwise your social and personal relationships would be damaged.

I am 33 years old suffering from ocd since 2005. I am on medication like clopiramine, ziprasidone etc. Will I be ok fully?

MD - Psychiatry

How you feel after taking medicine. If you r ok, then continue the same. If not then add another medicine like escitalopram, fluoxetine, buspirone. Along with medicine if you start cognitive behavior therapy in your management program then it will increase prognosis

unmarried sex leads to sex. fear, urgency, tension, anxious may cause for depression. real life sex there is no depression. enjoy the sex without tension, foreplay plays very important role. direct sex may cause for tension. create peaceful environment. before sex mutual sharing of thoughts is important. sex means not one man work. both should participate with enjoyment.let you follow both of them. best of luck.

I have given some anger control tips, try following them, If it doesn't work, consult a psychiatrist. All the best. 1. Think before you speak In the heat of the moment, it's easy to say something you'll later regret. Take a few moments to collect your thoughts before saying anything — and allow others involved in the situation to do the same. 2. Once you're calm, express your anger As soon as you're thinking clearly, express your frustration in an assertive but nonconfrontational way. State your concerns and needs clearly and directly, without hurting others or trying to control them. 3. Get some exercise Physical activity can help reduce stress that can cause you to become angry. If you feel your anger escalating, go for a brisk walk or run, or spend some time doing other enjoyable physical activities. 4. Take a timeout Timeouts aren't just for kids. Give yourself short breaks during times of the day that tend to be stressful. A few moments of quiet time might help you feel better prepared to handle what's ahead without getting irritated or angry. 5. Identify possible solutions Instead of focusing on what made you mad, work on resolving the issue at hand. Does your child's messy room drive you crazy? Close the door. Is your partner late for dinner every night? Schedule meals later in the evening — or agree to eat on your own a few times a week. Remind yourself that anger won't fix anything and might only make it worse. 6. Stick with 'I' statements To avoid criticizing or placing blame — which might only increase tension — use "I" statements to describe the problem. Be respectful and specific. For example, say, "I'm upset that you left the table without offering to help with the dishes, instead of, "You never do any housework. 7. Don't hold a grudge Forgiveness is a powerful tool. If you allow anger and other negative feelings to crowd out positive feelings, you might find yourself swallowed up by your own bitterness or sense of injustice. But if you can forgive someone who angered you, you might both learn from the situation. It's unrealistic to expect everyone to behave exactly as you want at all times. 8. Use humor to release tension Lightening up can help diffuse tension. Use humor to help you face what's making you angry and, possibly, any unrealistic expectations you have for how things should go. Avoid sarcasm, though — it can hurt feelings and make things worse. 9. Practice relaxation skills When your temper flares, put relaxation skills to work. Practice deep-breathing exercises, imagine a relaxing scene, or repeat a calming word or phrase, such as, "Take it easy. You might also listen to music, write in a journal or do a few yoga poses — whatever it takes to encourage relaxation. 10. Know when to seek help Learning to control anger is a challenge for everyone at times. Consider seeking help for anger issues if your anger seems out of control, causes you to do things you regret or hurts those around you.

I was in too much depression in January 2015 (love and educational stress), then my left arm, neck and leg started getting numb, I then visited a neurologist and got rid of the problem, bt after that my penis got shortened and loose, I was so afraid (got depressed once again) I didn't discuss it to anyone and visited a famous skin specialist cum sexologist, he said you are a bachelor come to me when you r going to get married, since then I lost my confidence and the condition of my penis is still the same bt sometimes I pee too much yellow in colour and bad odour too. Can you please tell me what may have happened to my penis, can I get back to my original size, shape and enthusiasm?

You seem to be feeling disappointment a lot and taking it to heart. Emotional disturbances have their effect on the physical body as well. I suggest that you please look into it and undertake some counselling sessions to build back your confidence, enthusiasm and self esteem. Yellow color urine and smell could be due to drinking very little water as well. If you are on multivitamins then again urine smells and becomes yellow. I suggest that you look for reasons for your problems and tackle them one by one rather than sinking emotionally. Take a second and third opinion and read up on your condition yourself and educate yourself. Take care.

Dear Lybrate user There is no SIMPLE way to cure stress and depression. First of all, Depression is a medical illness which requires thorough investigation and understanding so that underlying cause can be treated. For stress, ideally stress management is the trick. This entails, understanding the source of your stress, identifying it, accepting it and working on methods to cope with it. I would recommend a stress management direction for you. You can begin by modifying your lifestyle (kicking any bad habits) and adopting healthy ones. This is a slow and life long process. And will not CURE stress. Instead just help cope with it.

OCD - 4 Ways to Manage It!

DPM, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Mumbai
OCD - 4 Ways to Manage It!

Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) is a type of anxiety disorder in which a person has recurring thoughts and feels the urge to perform certain specific tasks at regular intervals. Living with OCD can very difficult and medications or therapy alone cannot guarantee complete recovery. The patient himself/herself has to take certain steps to win against the disease.

Here are some measures you can take to control the symptoms of OCD to recover faster.

1. Accept the truth: If you cultivate an accepting approach towards the fact that you are suffering from OCD and will experience obsessive thoughts then it will be easier to cope with the situation. You have to convince yourself that the recurring thoughts and compulsions you're having are not real, do not imply anything and will go away soon. This helps you maintain an optimistic approach and accelerate your recovery process.

2. Try to postpone your compulsions: When you have the urge to do certain ritualistic tasks try not to give in to them. Try to suppress the urges by saying to yourself that you will do it later and then involve yourself in normal day to day activities so that the compulsions can't rule you anymore.

3. Divert your attention: When you feel that you are having a recurring thought or compulsion, try to distract yourself by channelizing your thoughts towards some other activity. You will find that as you engage yourself in other activities, the obsessive compulsive thoughts will lose their impact on you and will prove to be less bothering.

4. Tell yourself that ocd is one of the most insignificant things of your life: Reduce the amount of value you impart to the disorder. Try to convince yourself that ocd cannot change your way of living life and you don't need to give in to your recurring thoughts and compulsions every time. Try to believe that you will not let this disorder affect your life in anyway and it's just your brain bringing these thoughts, not you. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a psychiatrist.

Can I chew nicotex 4mg chewing gum to help to quit smoking, now I am smoking 20 cigarette.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Yeah sure. 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 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. 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. All the damage you incurred earlier because of the smoking can be reverted back to normal in quick time.

Stop worrying, be calm and analyze your problem to get solution, consult your family well wishers and friends, you will get solution. No problem exists without solution, so be optimistic. Take bath twice, sufficient sleep, regular diet, exercise and be in company of friends or family, do not be alone. If like visit any temple, chant any liking mantra. Time is a good healer, so your bad time will pass away and good will comes.

Dear lybrate-user, memory and mind power depends mainly on three aspects. Understanding, storage and recollection. To understand what you are studying, you must be able to be attentive or concentrate. Concentration is possible when you are interested in that subject. Creative way of learning can help you concentrate and understand easily. When you are able to understand and concentrate, it is stored within your brain. If you read more and more it will be store in long term memory. Third part is retrieval. Whenever you want to retrive what you learned and stored, your brain gets the request, searches the database and retrieves the information for you. The retrieval may prove to be difficult if you are anxious, stressed, worried or tired physically or mentally. Retrieval is more easy when you are relaxed and healthy. Brain needs nutrients to keep itself sharp. Fruits, vegetables and dry fruits provide much needed nutrients for your brain. Include at least one fruit in your daily diet. Physical exercises, entertainment, hobbies, relaxation, memory games like sudoku etc help keep your memory sharp and active. Take care.

Dear lybrate user if you are getting suicidal thoughts immediately consult a psychologist, it seems you need regular therapy sessions. Please reflect upon the causes of such feelings. Sometimes when our daily routine gets monotonous we do get these feelings. Its important to identify the causes so that we will work upon those reasons and remove them immediately from your life. Try to make a thought journal and when you get negative thoughts you can write in it or share with some loved one.
