Hi lybrate-user. No treatment for vaginismus is possible without an examination and therapy. However persistent pressure for treatment at times psychological trauma which deters the patient from visiting the doctor even more. I suggest first you relieve of her anxiety. Take her to a psychologist who can prescribe her medicines for anxiety. Sometimes in some cases anti anxiety medicines in itself treat the vaginismus. You never know, it might actually do the trick.

Dear Prasad, these are complex questions needing detailed evaluation. Detailed therapies and medicines are available. However please remember that if you try to forcibly remove negativity it is not possible. You must fill yourself with positivity such that negativity has no space. If you have had a proper meal at home you won't have the urge to eat junk food. Similar is the case here. Have a daily schedule with an optimal mix of pleasurable and productive activities with adequate slot for 7-8 hours of sleep

7 Ways to Remember Anything Research-based strategies to boost your memory and keep it strong 7 Strategies for Remembering 1.Become interested in what you're learning. We're all better remembering what interests us. Few people, for example, have a difficult time remembering the names of people they find attractive. If you're not intrinsically interested in what you're learning or trying to remember, you must find a way to become so. 2.Find a way to leverage your visual memory. You'll be surprised by how much more this will enable you to remember. For example, imagine you're at a party and are introduced to five people in quick succession. How can you quickly memorize their names? Pick out a single defining visual characteristic of each person and connect it to a visual representation of their name, preferably through an action of some kind. Remember: Memory is predominantly visual. 3.Create a mental memory tree. If you're trying to memorize a large number of facts, find a way to relate them in your mind visually with a memory tree. Construct big branches first, then leaves. Branches and leaves should carry labels that are personally meaningful to you in some way, and the organization of the facts ("leaves") should be logical. 4.Associate what you're trying to learn with what you already know. It seems the more mental connections we have to a piece of information, the more successful we'll be in remembering it. This is why using mnemonics. Write out the items to be memorized over and over and over. 5.When reading for retention, summarize each paragraph in the margin. This requires you to think about what you're reading, recycle it, and teach it to yourself again. Even take the concepts you're learning and reason forward with them; apply them to imagined novel situations, which creates more neural connections to reinforce the memory. 6.Do most of your studying in the afternoon. Though you may identify yourself as a "morning person" or "evening person" at least one Study. Suggests your ability to memorize isn't influenced as much by what time of day you perceive yourself to be most alert but by the time of day you actually study—afternoon appearing to be the best. 7.Get adequate sleep to consolidate and retain memories. Not just at night after you've studied but the day, you study as well. Far better to do this than to stay up cramming all night for an exam.

Know About The New Age Relationship Killer, "Phubbing" and Ways to Combat

Know About The New Age Relationship Killer, "Phubbing" and Ways to Combat
How "phubbing" is killing your relationship?

It may sometimes so happen that your partner may prefer texting someone else over talking to you. Also sometimes this seemingly harmless habit can turn into an obsession, when your partner just can’t help but steal glances at his phone while you two are trying to enjoy a romantic dinner. If this turns into a constant habit that just doesn’t wear off, then chances are you’re being phubbed by your partner, and what is happening to you has a specific name. It’s called p-phubbing, which is the act of snubbing your partner by being glued to the phone.
What phubbing is doing to your relationships?

Research shows that Mumbai is the most major hub of phubbing in India. However, the spread of phubbing is not just restricted to Mumbai and has made its presence felt in other metropolitans of the country. Phubbing has led to serious relationship troubles among most couples. James A. Roberts, a professor at Baylor University, co-authored a recent study on phubbing which was published in the journal Computers in Human Behaviour. The study revealed some shocking statistics.

1. More than 46% people complained of being phubbed by their partners
2. More than 22% confessed that phubbing is a major issue in their relationship
3. And about 37% said that being phubbed makes them feel depressed at some point of time.

The study also said that there’s a direct link between phubbing and relationship issues. Phubbing is particularly problematic for those with an anxious attachment style (which makes up 20% of the population of the world), although its effects are also felt on the rest of us. More and more people feel dissatisfied with their partners who ignore them or cut them short mid-sentence to check their phones. Many even feel that their partner is no longer interested in them. For quite a few people it’s the reason behind feelings of insecurity, neglect and depression, and dissatisfaction with life in general. In fact, the study showed that some people had gone as far as ending their relationship as the situation had worsened to a level where it could not be handled.

How can you combat it?

Phubbing now poses as a social evil that must be weeded out of society. If you and your partner suffer at the hands of phubbing, then there are certain things you can do to combat it.

1. The easiest way to put an end to it is to tell your partner how it makes you feel.
2. Make certain rules regarding cellphone use when out on a date, or just spending quality time with each other at home.
3. Alternatively, you can try your partner to quit the habit by leading by example. Don’t use your cellphone at all when with your partner, and show him that spending quality time with him is more important.
4. You can also try educating your partner on the ill-effects of phubbing and how it can adversely impact your relationship. This is best done when you catch him in the act.

Sometimes your partner may not be consciously phubbing you or showing signs of an obsessive phubber, but it is still important to correct his wrong habits. Most importantly cellphones were invented to bring humanity closer, and not distance people even while they are sitting in the same room. So keep that in mind, and put an end to this unhealthy habit.

It is absurd a son marrying his step mother because the father is no more. Even if she is your stem mother you are her" son" because she is a young widow, the relatives must be thinking about her future and asked you to marry her. But seriously, it will be detrimental for you and your future to marry her. You can take care of her as an individual or her son as you grow and earn. May be in future she can also find a divorcee or a widower of her age to marry? I do not think it will be a good decision to marry her. You can support her by earning and supporting the family and choose your wife in the future.

Everyone has to work to build and maintain the relationships. Marriage is very different than other form of relationships. special efforts are required to save and strengthen the relationship. Both men and women has to put efforts to understand and empathize with each other's feelings. Men and women think, feel and behave over the same issue. Many of us fail to understand other's emotions which often becomes the cause for fights and quarrels. Try to put yourself in her role and try to understand her feelings. Help her to understand your thoughts and emotions. Clear communication with no impulsive reactions is the key to rebuild your relationship. Look at your problem from the third person's perspective. Invest your energy in searching different options to resolve your issue rather than blaming yourself or your partner. Fresh mind always think positive and constructive. So relax and refresh your mind. --

Hi, I can understand your concern. You can get healthy on your own, it does work. You just have to want it. And really fight for it. And of course when your trying to recover on your own, its not as easy. When your at hospital and have proffessional help. Its easier. You have a meal plan, you have people watching you, making sure you eat. Do not exercise. They make sure you gain weight. They help you recover. While your trying to recover on your own, the most important thing is that you have support. That is very important. Its almost impossible, if you have no one you can talk to, no one who will be there beside you when things are hard. Or someone to remind you thatrecovery is worth it. Someone to make you smile. Whether thats your mum, best friend, boyfriend. Etc etc (but I do not know, when your sick its so easy to lose contact with people. And if you have lost contact. Its just to take contact with people again, and let them know your trying to recover and hope that they can help you, support you.) recovery is not easy, its a mental battle everyday. And facing your body is not easy while in recovery. Ok. The best thing to do is start off small. 3 meals a day, and then add on snacks. So you have 5-6 meals a day. That is the best thing. Its good for the metabolism anyway. Its just healthy to eat 5-6 meals a day. And when your eating 5-6 meals a day aim for 2500-3000 calories. Thats what you need to gain weight. But start off with roughly 1000-1200 calories, and then raise it. Really, calories should not be counted. But when your making a meal plan, then I guess you should know how mcuh your eating. Find foods that you like. It makes eating easier. So. I guess thats up to you to decide what you like and want to eat. But I suggest to eat full fat foods. It makes gaining weight easier. And that is what is needed in recovery. Do not forget that my best tips in recovery, are to hide the mirrors. Trust me, it does not help. Just have a small one so you can do your make up, brush your teeth, see your face. But hide the llong mirrors. Get rid of the scale. The number on the scale does not define you. Ok. So if your recoverying on your own. Yeah, it might be good to see if your gaining weight or losing weight, but decide a day. Like monday morning, once a week you check. And thats it. Hide the scale. And do not step on it unless its monday morning. You have to be tough with yourself. You have to be your own guard. And do not listen to the voice in your head. There will be bad days. Days when you just want to give up because you feel fat, or eveyrthing is hard. And thats normal, thats part of recovery. Thats the hard times. Thats when you need to be 10 times stronger, and just eat anyway. I also suggest to make food dates - i. E. Plan to have brunch with a friend, or go for lunch with someone. Go to dinner, or invite someone for dinner. Go out for frozen yoghurt etc etc. In the end you need to challenge yourself, and it also makes sure that you eat. It makes it easier if your with someone when your eating. You should consult a professional. You can consult with me for counselin and therapy regarding this. All the best.

It is not unusual in our society to not have strong marital relationship and most people do not focus on improving the same. Any relationship needs both focus and work of love to continue to be good. Marriage is no exception. There could be many reason like having a child or you also are working and busy wit house hold work. On top of this your in law issues. All these things drains you and you don't have time and energy left for your marriage. Similar thing cloud be possible for your husband. Right now you seem to be under lot of stress. If you could take few days off and go on a little holiday trip with your husband and son. Please do that. You both need to talk and understand each other and decide what is important for you. You may consult a marriage counselor who can help you work on I creasing positivity inna relationship and on an individual level. I understand that your son needs your focus attention ans love at the same time your relationship to. When I am saying you both need to talk. Inam not saying just blame each other and fight. I really want you to listen to each other deeply a d understand and make the bond of friendship stronger. My speciality is marriage and parenting. If you need any further advice or concrete guideline to be happy and content feel free to contact me. Wishing you very best.

I am 22 years old, I have been smoking cigarettes for the past 3 years and now I hav decided to quit smoking. I used to smoke at the most 2 cigarettes per day, but last week I went on trip with my friends and smoked about 30-40 cigarettes in 3 days. After the trip I felt so bad about myself that I decided to quit smoking once and for all, now I have smoked any cigarette in 4 days. But I came to know from internet that quiting suddenly will cause serious issues on neurotransmitters and on health. Please guide me with the situation and tell me if I need to take any special food to increase neurotransmitters.

Dear Lybrate user. You are not an addict to smoking. Over and above you are smoking for just three years, and that too two cigarettes per day. In this rate of smoking, quitting will never have any serious issues with neurotransmitters. Don't worry. I assure you no withdrawal symptoms of neurotransmitter problems. Quit smoking. Take care.

Dear Karan. Stage fear is one sort of performance anxiety which comes under general anxiety disorder. Singing in small groups and then go large etc are basic steps in the therapy and such systematic desensitization therapy methods can only cure your problem. Secondly you should not unnecessarily worry about this anxiety. Because if you worry, anxiety worsens. Consult a psychologist online. Take care.

Has medical science conclusively found the cause of clinical depression or paranoia? genetics? stress? why does the brain physiology of people suffering from mental illness differ from those of' normal' people? can it be said with surety that all mental illnesses are self inflicted?

MD Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Chennai
No medical science have not found a single cause. The reason why a person develops depression and other psychiatric illness is multifactorial. Many factors like genes, brain chemical changes, personality and stressful situations all contribute to the psychiatric illness. None of the the mental illness is self inflicted.

Hi, many a times we are fearful of situations which are vague and unhappy with circumstances. Its very important we recognize that it will not remain same forever, moreover it not situation which is good or bad but how we see it and interpret. You need to have an attitude of" jo hoga dekha jayega" you need to be carefree life is not about taking stress but enjoying as it is otherwise whole point of living is missed.

Yes, you are definitely under some stress. Go meet a counselor and get some help with that and you will be fine.Here are some things you can do to get back your concentration and memory: 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. 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 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. 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.
