Dear lybrate user. I can understand. There aremtwo ways. First way is to completely disregard astrologers and take up driving as a profession. But, once you do that, should not worry or think about astrology or fate. Second method is to accept the astrology is c8rrect and lead a life accordingly and accept whatever job you get. Not as being compelled, but as a passion.

Anxiety begets anxiety but this shouldn't hinder your career. Many talented students lie in the crowd just because they can't express their views publicly. They can't communicate properly with authorities due to most anxiety situations does occur when you think this is very important to me. One thing is that if you take adequate treatment regimen you could come out of that crowd that I can guarantee u. Message me your exact symptoms, anxiety situation treatment can be planned accordingly.

Not all guys are same. You need to just trust people but no blind faith. We can only survive peacefully when we trust. Keep a watch on his actions but don; t ruin your life bothering about his moves. Let it go. If you feel you have found a better man don't ruin it by living in the past or carrying baggage of past. Breathe in and exhale all your worries. Take counseling form me.

Respected Sir, I am an Engineer, having my own business related to Agriculture and Gardening. I feel depressed most of the time, as I am on my own and have nobody to support or encourage during my business and financial depressions. My wife is a spend thrift who does't care about my financial problems. I have aged parents to take care. My only consolation is, my children are outstanding in their studies. But when I think about my future, I always feel a knot in my stomach and feel unhappy. I don't even get a sound sleep and have a very disturbed sleep. Even a slight sound makes me wide awake. I don't know what to do. What is my trouble and how to come out of this?

You need to stop worrying about losses and gains and your wife spending// You count your blessings. Do exercise/ meditation/ yoga/ Pranayama/walking in a systematic manner. Dont worry no one takes interest in you. Talk to your wife and children about it freely they will help you. Try CBT. Sleep well./eat regularly Check your health with blood tests/ Look forwards not backward/ Take courage and challenge yourself to recover.

Her headaches might be because of tensions. From the symptoms you described, it does not appear to be like migraine. Encourage her to share her worries with you or someone who she can trust. Assure her of your support as well. Tell her that you love her and you care for her. Tell her that when she is worried you also get affected and you both together can find some solutions to your problems. Also ask her to avoid going out in the mornings presently, as it is very hot outside because of summers. Ask her to drink plenty of water. See if she is having her food properly or not. In spite of doing all this, if the headache continues then consult a doctor. Avoid self medication. Take care.

This kind of relationship is a physical as well as emotional gamble. The first thing to make sure is that you are absolutely ready for it. While it is easy to give into our urges, it is also necessary to take precautions as follows 1. You have to be mentally and physically prepared. 2. Check for stds sexually transmitted diseases before entering into a relationship. 3 ensure you are not being taped. 4 use condoms take your time to decide if you are really comfortable with the idea and only proceed if you are.

Yes ofcourse it's alarming. Stop smoking. Get an x ray. And if nothing on x-ray get a hrct of the chest done. Don't ignore the hemoptysis.

Dear, you must be able to distinguish between mental disease and mental disorder. Your problem is a mental disorder. Not a mental disease. These mental disorders are usually treated with a combination of medicines and other means like awareness, meditation, psychotherapy techniques, life style changes etc. I think two or three counseling sessions and psycho therapy techniques should solve her problem. Let me know if she is willing to undergo counseling sessions and tailor made psycho therapy through mobile. Take care.

You have to drink a plenty of water or other fluid. The quantity should always more than two litre of water you intake. Only this will help you to stop this stone formation. Or you can take suggestion from a normal physician that what you have to stop or eat in small quantity. There are many vegetables which increase the percentage of formation of stone in every person. Drink water as much you can only it will help you remove those particals through urine which can be make stone in your body.
