Hi lybrate-user. After tooth removal you have to wait for at least 4-5 days for smoking. If you ll do smoking on same day then there might be possibility of' dry socket. It is a condition of unbearable pain.

Hello Lybrate user I know it might be difficult to adjust to new work environment. Try having a routine like workout or gym or yoga for thrice a week then socialize by going for events which are Available online or join some hobby class. If you still feeling depressed its better to connect with a psychologist to help out with your problems. I hope this was helpful to you.

Good Morning ~ Masturbation is not an unusual phenomenon and I would think that you might have negative attitudes about it and therefore have put it on paper. Let me assure you that it is not a problem unless you are doing it only to relieve your sexual energies due to either extreme sexual urges or non-availability of a sexual partner. The low back pain, disturbed sleep, bodyache, tiredness, low memory and focus are some of the symptoms are excessive masturbation. If you could control the number of times you masturbate in a day the symptoms may gradually subside, however you should get an ophthalmological opinion for the blurred vision. If you believe there are other causes for the symptoms that you describe, I appreciate you letting me know and we can take it from there.

You talk about this condition rather casually. It is very, very serious and the earlier it is resolved the better. Because you are young the prognosis is good. Apart from that this the last time you will get to sort it out in your teens. If done well now, you could save a lot of time, money, and pain. Meet with a doctor immediately. Comply with all the medical prescriptions and work in tandem with a counselor for a long time and learn coping skills and techniques to handle the daily challenges you will face. There are certain adaptations that will suit you during the elation phase and there are certain behaviors that are required during the depressed phases. In the meantime you can do certain things that will give you benefits anyway. Emotional therapy will alleviate a lot of the problems faced in this condition because it is a mood disorder. You need to particularly look at your levels of anger both for its reasonableness and to express it in appropriate manner. I suspect that much of this anger may have origins in early childhood that you may never be aware of it now. Talk to your parents and explore that angle. This information will help the counselor too. Also you will need to check whether there is any genetic factor involved. You must exercise regularly, eat healthily and sleep normally too. If your motivation and cooperation is good much can be achieved. You must have a time-structured schedule filled with interesting and reasonable activities and it must be monitored for compliance and delivery. The reason I say this is that many times you will be inclined to have grandiose notions and confidently believe that you can do without the medication. This will set you back many months in the treatment and delay and sabotage the recovery: forewarned you are forearmed. If this combination of medication with therapy is maintained for at least three years without any episodes or breakdowns, it is possible to taper the medication in consonance with the doctor.

The double effect of smoking and drinking will definitely affect your erectile capability. Smoking directly impacts your erection and it can do so immediately when you smoke. You can recover completely with quitting smoking and going on an exercise program immediately. You may visit a sexologist to determine the extent of damage and that person will also give you problem-specific actions to take.

I'm a 28 years old girl, unmarried. I'm addicted to smoking. I started it very casually 2 yrs. First with 1 cigarette, then 2, then 5 and gradually the number of cigarette kept increasing. Now I smoke 20 cigarettes per day. I don't have any emotional issues nor do I have now. Just The fun part became an addiction. Now I want to quit desperately. I tried many times but every time it resulted in failure. The withdrawal symptoms are too much to ask for. When I don't smoke for 6-7 hrs I feel anger and rage in me and after that a period of depression which lasts. I read many articles on Internet about quitting. I tried every non medical trick but I couldn't deal with the withdrawal symptoms with enough motivation. If I can get some help or any good medicine which will help me quit it will be helpful.

Dear friend, congrats you have a strong willpower, but some time you loose your confidence. I assure you that nothing will go wrong when you quit smoking. This is a false belief that withdrawal of smoking causes any damage. But what happens when you quit, a low confidence again provokes to restart. Here what should be done, just take few deep breaths and a glass of cold water and lemon juice and sip this slowly. Spend 10, _15 min. Try to engage your mind in any work, play with mobile, or just finish your incomplete work. Set a target for one day only, don't. Go in that surrounding where you use to smoke. Initially you will feel lonely ness but this can not harm. Spend the day. Tell your self about this and you will find a little victory. Just continue the program. I don't want to suggest any medicine right now because I want to know your experience. Start today and tell your progress to guide further. I am with you and always ready to help. When people can quit why cannot. You.

Masturbation has nothing to do with brain power or memory. The guilt around it may have caused enough stress to cause a lot of distraction and therefore there might have been some memory loss.You may be under this stress, and I do not know if you are aware of it. Find out if there is any other disturbance and as you address it, memory and concentration will happily return to favor you. Do meet with a counselor, if your stress is too much. In the meantime please follow the suggested guidelines: Daily exercise of at least half an hour is a must. Even if you go to a gym, ask for aerobic and/or calisthenics 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 or coconut 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. Short-term memory is a faculty of the left brain, and long-term memory is a feature of the right brain. But you must have short term memory to convert it into long-term memory. So the emphasis must be in activating good short term memory, ideally and always. 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. If your home life is full of distractions and stress, it is likely to affect your memory, adversely. In that case, I suggest that you and the family go for counseling too.

Lack of sleep and disturbed sleep are two of the main reasons behind daytime sleepiness. Hence, setting a proper sleeping schedule is one of the best ways to prevent daytime drowsiness. Proper sleep will even help fight low energy, fatigue, depression and stress. Different people need different amounts of sleep to function well, however an average of 7 to 8 hours of sound sleep is enough to help your body function properly. To help enjoy sound sleep: •Maintain a sleep schedule that has a consistent bedtime and wake time. •Keep your bedroom completely dark to promote restful sleep. If needed, use shades or blinds to block out any exterior light. •Invest in a good quality mattress, comforter and pillows to improve your sleep quality. •Read a book or do some relaxing yoga stretches for about 20 minutes before going to bed. •Limit your screen time staring at computers, TVs or phones in the evening before going to bed.

You seem to be having lot of anxiety about the same. Tremors, feeling anxious or nervous, sense of panic, sweating, increased heartbeat, feeling of impending doom, stomach discomfort, dizziness etc are signs of anxiety. These can be debilitating. If the anxiety us overwhelming, consult a psychiatrist at the earliest. With the right medication and counseling, it is likely your symptoms will improve. Other than that, try yoga, deep breathing, meditation, moderate exercise, progressive muscular relaxation and guided meditation.

Stress and Stuttering - How to Deal with It?

MD, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Delhi
Stress and Stuttering - How to Deal with It?

Stuttering is a type of speech disorder wherein, a person speaks slower than normal. It is quite  common in the age group of 3 to 8. The relationship between stress and stuttering has been pondered over for decades now. A lot of people seem to believe that stress and stuttering are co-related. On the contrary, recent studies show that stress is more of a consequence rather than a cause of stuttering. If you take the first theory into consideration, then according to that, children would be the greatest victims of anxiety and stress. But it is seen that the level of stress increases proportionately with the increase in age.

Social anxiety in teenagers increases due to stuttering, when they come across individuals who can speak in a normal pace. This in turn can crush their self confidence and lead them to isolate themselves from social groups and people in general. Hence, it is important to deal with stuttering in the early ages or as and when it occurs. 

Sometimes stuttering can develop due to physical or mental trauma.  Most people with stuttering do not seek therapy for it because they might not think of it to be too severe. Little do they realise that a simple process of speech therapy can help them overcome this disability and rejuvenate their level of self-confidence.

It has also come to light, that people with relapse in stuttering post therapy has shown a three-fold increase in anxiety levels than normal. Hence we cannot ignore the strong relationship between stress and stuttering. So from the above evidence, it is safe to conclude that social anxiety or stress develops as a result of chronic stuttering.

How to deal with stress related to stuttering?

Seeking help is a great start to tackle your disability. If your stuttering is prominent enough to warrant therapy, you must seek professional help for the same. You must also learn to control your anxiety by dismissing any anxious thought or make sincere efforts in controlling physical anxiety.

You can also try to increase your social skills by participating in events, such as public speaking that can reduce your stress levels and make yourself more confident about yourself. One must also remember that a person is defined by what he does rather than what he says. So never let a minor disability come in the way of your self worth! If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Psychiatrist.

Dear friend getting married and moving to a big city like mumbai in it self is a huge change a d chllenge. What yiu are feeling is ina way very common feeling among young women after 18 to 24 months of marriage. The money moon period in marriage ends around this time. Now you both settle in your after marriage life and the reality sinks in. The happily everafter feeling also starts fading a little bit. Now yoh start seeing your spouses limitations and weaknesses also. Overall this is a stressful time. On a brighter side. Now you both are comfortable leaving woth each other and open to expose yourself as it is to another one. This is from where the true journey of happily ever after begins. Understanding how you both are different. Not only as an individual bit there are else some differences in your gender. Helping and supporting each other while you express how you feel and what are your needs and how could the other support you in filling the same woukd go a long way. I would suggest you to take charge of your life. Think what makes you happy. What you enjoy doing that bring joy and satisfaction in your day. One baby step each day would help you chart a new path and better future togather as a psychologist and life coach I have been trained to help and guide individuals through this journey I do offer weekly sessions for 3 months to 6 months where we work togather you bring about concrete changes on your life.
