Each relationship has its own place and importance. They are not comparable rather they supplement and complement each other. You are playing dual role of daughter and wife. Try to maintain respect for everyone including yourself and your decisions. Don't force your husband on your parents. Gradually when they see that you loved and meant to marry him, they might turn around. Remember that you do have the right to marry of your own choice. What you need to be sure of is your reasons for marrying this boy.

Dear lybrate user, nice of you to write to me and express your issue of concern. The fact that you have taken out the time to write to me about is shows that you would like to resolve the issue. I appreciate the concern for your kids and family. View life and the events that you pass through in an objective way. Be a simple observer and assist all especially your family members deal with their issues. Take some time out and develop some goals (long term / short term) for yourself. Live your life according to that. In your free time pursue an interesting hobby. Take out some time also for meditation and silent reflection. If any event takes place that angers you look at it objectively, take 2/3 deep breaths before you respond. Do meet a counselor / therapist for further assistance. You are welcome to write to me and contact me if you do require any further assistance. Wishing you all the best!

I am very short tempered because of which I end up getting angry and frustrated. Such a behaviour results in hurting my loved ones. How to control this?

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Guwahati
Emotions are our feelings. Sometimes we are happy & sometimes sad, sometimes angry & upset, while sometimes calm & contented. Joy, sorrow, fear, grief, anger, jealousy, love etc are normal human emotions which every individual experiences. These emotions are there in everyone, but how one reacts to the emotions vary from person to person, based on his tolerance level, coping skills, patience etc. Anger is one such emotion, which do harm if not controlled. One does not have control over his emotions, but has control over his actions. Anger is a basic emotion which every human being experiences in response to life events or situations. If out of control it may harm in aspect of career, relationships & varied aspects of life, and also brings in immense feeling of insult, frustrations, disappointment, & other negative feelings within. Try the following measures to control short tempered nature: 1)First realize & acknowledge that you have the anger outburst problem, & stay aware & cautious about it. 2)Try to understand your own emotions especially those events, situations etc that triggers your anger. Whenever you face any such situations, stay alert & calm, try to avoid it or control it. 3)When you are angry, take a short break, move away from that place if possible, have a cup of tea or coffee etc to calm your mind. 4)Whenever you are feeling angry, try to interrupt the anger cycle in the following way: a)At that moment do not talk & try to divert yourself & control your anger first. In the state of anger you may say or do things which you may regret later after you calm down. B)Try to distract your mind by visiting a favorite website, listen a song on your cell phone, do something that comforts you or daydream about an activity of choice etc. C)Use countdown to distract your mind- start counting backwards from 100 to1. D)Use physical relaxation techniques like deep breathing exercise. E)Use mental relaxation techniques like positive thinking & imagery, where you imagine anything that gives you happiness. F)Just talk to someone with whom you feel comfortable and relaxed. G)Take your anger as a humor & laugh it away. Try till your anger calms down. 5)If any person or situation is triggering your anger repeatedly talk to the concerned person when you are in a calm & relaxed state of mind, or work on solving the situation. 6)Work on increasing the calmness of your mind, so that you do not break down easily in any situation. For that do physical activities like regular exercise, yoga, meditation, relaxation techniques like deep breathing exercise daily. Sleep adequately & maintain a healthy lifestyle. 7)Avoid substance of abuse like alcohol, cannabis etc, as these substances reduces frustration tolerance & makes the mind restless easily. 8)Try to be good listener & develop good communication skills, as proper communication solves many problems. 9)Learn to assert yourself, express your feelings calmly & directly, without becoming hostile & defensive. 10)Do not try to suppress your anger, but try to solve it. As suppressing anger leads to anxiety, depression, & other detrimental effects on the body within. If after trying above also you are not able to control your anger, then seek professional help. Consult a Psychiatrist who will evaluate you & advice you medicines or counseling sessions accordingly. All the best.

My husband is having drinking habit from his 9th std age. Now he is 37 years old. He is a pharmaceutical manager. His job is a field work. He says due to the physical strains, mental worries and the financial constrains he is drinking unavoidably. But now a days he is becoming addict to alcohol. He use to drink daily. Some times more than two larges. If one day he miss to drink his mind craving for drinks and he become irresistible. And also he is having smoking habit. He smokes 1 full packet cigarette per day. Whenever he skips drinking for more than 2 days head ache stars to him and always angry on family members. His eyes and nails turned to yellow color. I suspect this may be the symptoms of liver malfunctioning. His lips and teeth are turned black due to nicotine toxins. He breaths very tough. Even he is breathing hard when speaking. He spends all most half of his salary for drinking. Moreover he is becoming a debtor having debts in many banks and private loan providers. We have 3 kids. The condition of my family is really very bad. I want him to come out of this habit completely. I joined him in a addiction center also before 8 months. He stayed there for 1 month and was remained non drinker for 5 months after coming from the deaddiction center. But unfortunately he started his habit again. He is very chronic. Sometimes he hates his habits and wants to come out. Sometimes he will not obey my words and behave harsh to drink. He is psychologically affected a lot. He attempted for suicide for 2 times. He is not ready to come to meet doctor. I am helpless. I came to know from a friend that homeopathy medicines can cure addiction and with the help of homeopathy treatment a person can over come the drinking habit for lifetime. But I do not know whom to approach and which doctor is best to consult. home doctors whoever read this, kindly help me. Pls guide me what are the medicines to be taken, in what potential or power, dosage, how many times a day, how long the medicines have to be taken etc.

Hi. Yes, there are homoeopathic medicines which will help your husband to get rid of his addiction of smoking and drinking! give your husband homoeopathic medicines - schwabe's daphne indica and quercus robur 1x - both thrice daily for 6 months regularly. Management: give him fresh, nutritive, balanced and healthy food consisting more of seasonal fruits, green vegetables, pulses, legumes, nuts, flaxseeds, 10-12 glasses of water in a day, 6-8hrs. Of sleep daily and think healthy! yoga poses: -marichyasana: it is performed by sitting in a comfortable position on the floor. Sit cross-legged on the floor and pull your right thigh towards your chest. Twist your body towards the right side. Repeat the twist on the left side. -suryanamaskar: to begin with, hold your hands folded in front of you (as in the indian namaskara pose) and look at the sun. Raise your hands straight upwards in the folded position. Bend down and touch your feet. Stretch one leg outwards and arch your body backwards. Bend forward in the downward dog pose and then rest your entire body on your belly. Next, slowly lift up your torso in the cobra pose. Now, return back to the downward dog pose and all the other poses you have performed before it in the return sequence. Ultimately, you will return to the folded hands pose which you have started with. -baddha konasana is performed in a seated posture. Start by sitting with your legs stretched outwards. Now fold one leg and then the next, and place them with the soles of the feet in contact with each other. Remain seated in the position for as long as you can. -balasana helps in combating alcoholism by strengthening the mind of the alcohol addict. This asana relieves mental stress and fatigue and improves blood circulation to the brain. To perform this asana, kneel down, touch the floor with your forehead and stretch out your hands in the front. Revert.

Sadnes and happines is part of life.Death of parents and that too at a early age is a real shoking in everbodys life but Mukta I know tht it is an irrepairable los for you,but life must go on.Moreover your father must have great dreams for you.Try fulfilling those dreams if you are a real daughter of your father and if you want to make that soul happy ,whereeever he is.You should lead rom the front so that your mother dont feel this loss as she i the one who is the most to suffer as you will be buy in your respective life one day.So put aside thiss emotional element and be brave,as this world is for brave people who have nitched their own way and people discard,reject and avoid losers and emotionally weak people.So if you want to make your father happy and proud,adopt the way that he ha told you and force all your energy in fulfilling your dreams so that one day your mother is proud of you and so does your father .

As you mentioned you are already taking medication for thyroid problem. And moreover, mind needs rest, to recover itself. Our body clock is designed in such a way that only 6-8 hrs sleep in the night will be beneficial for the proper functioning of body and mind. So, try studying at daytime, and get proper sleep at night, only then you mind gets relaxed. Taking medication for relaxing mind, can relax your mind for sometime, but have serious ill effect afterwards on your health.

Lips cannot be normal by any means if smoking continues. They will become normal in few months once smoking is stopped. You may take help of de addiction centres. There is nothing wrong in that for good reason. Smoking causes all types of cancers now well proven.

Mr. Lybrate-user. The foremost thing is you are having an impression that" you are alone, no one is there to take care of" change your mentality. If your mind is disturbed you cannot concentrate in your daily activities. The reason behind your stress can b personal, acadamical or official. So first you have to find out the problem. Share with your parents, close friends. Find out the solutions & get rid of from those problems. Live happily.

As is evident, good control of diabetes & blood pressure is very important. Take adequate measures to reduce stress in your life, in general eyelid flicker could be a sign of tiredness, lack of sleep, overwork, too much travel, inadequate or inappropriate food, and so on. Usually, it is a minor & vague sign of general debility. Correct the above states, if any, in your present lifestyle. In addition, wash your closed eyes gently with cold (not chilled) water, eat well (as appropriate for your diabetes & blood pressure) and get some rest. Inform if there is no improvement with these measures.

I am taking the support of gym exercises and tea coffee for leaving this habit and also I succeeded to reduce it in last few days.

Tobacco and nicotine are intoxicants which are bad for body, mind and well-being. One should be ready to realize the bad effects, then one can avoid cigarettes by engaging mind and body in more constructive activities.

You cannot calculate weight gain on the basis of dosage or when you restarted. Neither should you stop or restart medication without the doctor's consent and consultation. It is, in fact, dangerous. The weight gain is a side effect but at least the depression gets taken care of. Anyway, do talk to the doctor about your concerns but do not self-regulate the medication at any cost. Additionally, you can follow some of these instructions, which includes exercise mandatorily: You must go and meet with a counselor immediately and with your doctor and you must cooperate with both 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.
