Dear, the pain is due to masturbation and trying to do it almost immediately after the first masturbation. There should be a gap of 12 hours between two masturbation. I suggest, at this age, to masturbate thrice or four times a day. Never more than that. If you reduce the masturbation frequency, your pain will go away. Don't worry. Take care.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. Stress related disorders and related dissociation is normal and such symptoms could stay for some months, slowly recovering. One counselling is never enough. Repeated counselling sessions and psychotherapy can be of immense help. Take care.

I'm preparing for my gate exam and want to study at least 10 hrs a day but I'm getting very sleepy everyone suggesting me to go for coffee but I have read somewhere that coffee reduces the thinking Capability .so is there any natural and effective way to be energetic and awake please give proper answer don't provide irrelevant ans.

MBBS, MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Chennai
Mr. lybrate-user feeling sleepy during exams usually occurs due to reasons like poor sleep, poor diet and stress. Try to schedule your studies. A target oriented schedule with daily targets to achieve can help you. Avoid smoking and alcohol if any. Try to take few breaks in between. Don't strain to read more than 3 hrs continuously. Use stick notes to read and highlight. Daily do mild exercises and yoga which can make you fresh and energetic for studies. Don't skip breakfast. Eat a healthy and balanced diet. Maintain a proper sleep pattern. If possible go for combined study for few hours daily to motivate yourself and study. Be relaxed and stay healthy. All the best for your exams.

I have more stress in mind .but. I don't know to come out from stress .plz help me.
Stress is a reaction to a real or perceived event that acts as a stressor. In other words, how much stressed one feels depends on how much stress one perceives in a given situation. Start by making a stress diary. Identify what causes stress. Ask why it causes stress. Is it a negative presumption about the even or a reality that is bothering you. Then figure out, how you have been dealing with the stressor. If the way you handle stress doesn't help, figure out the alternatives. If you by yourself are not able to do this exercise, consult a psychotherapist.

My 4 year old daughter is acting insecure and strange. I have filled for a divorce last month and she was taken away from me forcefully for 15 days. She was with her father and not allowed to talk to me. Now I have got her back legally and she can not see her father anymore. He has refused to take visiting rights. Now she is living with me at my parents house. Should I see a child psychologist for her behavior changes?

Your daughter is only 4 year old and the divorce proceedings between you and your husband, are beyond her. A child craves for both the parents and chosing one of them is very traumatic for the child. The child is undergoing a lot of traumatic events and that is making her sad, angry and insecure. It is very sad that she was taken away from you forcibly. From her view point it is also sad that she cannot see her father now. I understand that you also are going through a lot and are under lot of stress. I am sure you had strong reasons for making these choices. I would request you to give your daughter some more time to settle down and then try to talk to her normally. Don't drag your daughter into your disagreements with your husband. It would be helpful if you do not get angry with her for loving her father and see that you do not speak ill about him in front of her. I understand, this is not easy and how sad all this must be for you. See, many times, children feel responsible for their parents' fights and keep feeling guilty. She might be confused, hence might be acting strange and feeling insecured. There is a lot to be done in your case. Kindly seek help from a counsellor.

There is no reason good enough to contemplate death. Life has a lot of problems and we must learnt to deal with it by being disciplined. Life is extremely precious and must be preserved at all cost: you have only one chance in this world and hopelessness will haunt but you can overcome all this with some help and other people. Sounds to me like you are into an anger related depression. If you have not been on medication and you want to remain so, you will have to work very hard to recover from this condition. You must first of all seek the help of a counselor, ideally. If that person thinks that you need to meet with a doctor you will need to do so and cooperate right through. 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 scotching 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: find someone to love and to love you back, if you are not already married. 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 everyday and learn to be contended 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.

The first thing is to have a fixed time table wherein you will have fix time to wake up, for meals, for rest and enjoyment and also fixed timing for going to bed. If possible, start your day early in the morning - with the sun rise. Go for a walk/jog or do some yoga/pranayama or take up any other physical exercise like cycling/swimming/game of your choice. Have healthy breakfast. Best food for all meals would be lots of fruits and vegetables, alongwith carbohydrates, proteins and essential fats. Hence you can have dal, roti, rice, subzi, salad, curd etc daily. Have sugar and fried food in moderation. Avoid fast and junk food loaded only with calories. More importantly have plenty of water. Avoid smoking and alcohol. About reducing stress - stress is part and parcel of our lives. Hence we all need to learn to manage our stress. Understand what is causing this stress and try to analyse the cause. Search for various options and choose best possible option that suits you. Yoga/meditation and physical exercise are good stress busters. Learn time management and anger management techniques. Be in the company of people with positive attitude and learn to enjoy life. All the best.

How to concentrate on studies? I want to study till late night. But then I am not able to wake up early.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Please do not disturb your sleep for your studies. It will have a negative affect on your concentration. I suspect that the adolescent issues with regard to hormones may be affecting your ability to concentrate and remember. When the hormones play up, it lasts for a period of close to two years and during that time you could be influenced by three signs directly impacted by the chemical: you will tend to become aggressive and rebellious, you will become sexually active, and you will have acne and pimple problems. The hormonal imbalances may not only impact your memory because of the chemical but also bring some distractions that come with it. But you may work on the following even if the hormones kick in: Daily exercise of at least half an hour is a must. Even if you go to a gym, ask for aerobic and/or callisthenic exercises with whatever else you are doing. A healthy body harbors a healthy mind. With regard to memory, it is very important that your brain and body is ideally rested to be able to recall whatever is required, rather comfortably. Puzzles pose problems to the brain that help it to use new pathways and neurons, which give the brain considerable exercise. It taxes the left brain to use logic to solve the myriad possibilities which other activities do not stimulate. Crosswords are excellent for vocabulary learning and use. Jigsaws and Rubik cube stimulate different permutations to finally settle on the most likely one. Picture completion and anagrams help approach problem solving from several angles. Do Sudoku, and memory co-relation activities and skills. Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber (whole grains, fruits and vegetables), nuts, avocado, eat dark chocolate, consume less of fat and use olive oil instead, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. You need to check out if you are stronger visual or auditory. The visual is a better mode than the auditory. However, if you combine the two modes, you will get the best concentration. Have a special place of learning, which should be well lit, with soft painted walls, well-ventilated, with no distractions. When you get bored, study by writing. If you repeat learning at least five to seven times, you will apparently remember for a longer time. Sit comfortably but do not slouch. The reading material should be of a fairly large print. Study at small intervals of about 40 minutes and then take a break or change the subject. There is a new exercise called Super Brain Yoga, which is done by holding the right earlobe with your left thumb and index finger, and the left earlobe with your right hand’s thumb and index finger. In this position you must squat down and rise up and do this for five minutes every day. Short-term memory is a faculty of the left brain, and long-term memory is a feature of the right brain. When people are stressed, they tend to favor the right brain and abandon the left brain, where short-term memory resides. So, it is really very simple: deal with the stress and activate left brain functions. Here are a few suggestions to activate left brain function: 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. There are some memory enhancing techniques and study methods that your teacher will be able to guide you with. If your home life is full of distractions and stress, it is likely to affect your memory, adversely. In that case, I suggest that the family goes for counseling too. The following foods do help too: Blueberries, walnuts, turmeric, Spinach, tomatoes, broccoli, acorn squash, green tea, oily fish, boiled egg, turkey, apples, oatmeal, leafy greens, lentils, pumpkin seeds, avocado, cinnamon, thyme, sunflower seeds, and red wine. Avoid junk food.

I have a thin voice. How do I get a nice and thick voice by using home remedies or medicine?

You do not have a nodule or polyp in your vocal fold. So there is no need of medicine. The only remedy for your voice problem is to undergo voice therapy. For reference search digital manipulation in voice therapy. But do not try it without a speech therapist observation.
