The end of a relationship often feels like the end of the world. After all the time and energy you have invested in it, it is very painful when it gets over. Keep in mind that life is full of ups and downs; nothing is permanent. The pain you feel today will go away with time. Give yourself time to heal. Give time, time. In the meanwhile don't isolate yourself from your friends and family. Confide in someone you are comfortable with. Make a list of life goals, and plan how to achieve them. Relationships are an important part of your life, but they are not everything. Spend time with those close to you, indulge in some enjoyable activities. Keep yourself busy. Slowly you will see that there is a lot to life. However if you are feeling suicidal, consult a psychiatrist immediately. Don't wait to feel worse.

By eating rat poison, by will be in bigger trouble. Suicidal attempt will not solve your problem. Instead, please discuss your troubles with someone you trust. You need to find support from your relatives or friends. If that is not possible please talk to a counsellor.

Hello Doctor, My father has two elder brothers who live in a nearby town with their respective spouses. All of them are senior citizens who have mostly been unhealthy for the last two decades. They regularly consult doctors but the real problem is inactivity and depression. Now, my father has gone to their place to spend some time with them. Apart from taking them to a doctor, what else can my father do to make them happy and healthy? Also, they have frequent tiffs amongst themselves on trivial issues and they call on my father, who is the youngest of all brothers to solve their issues. My father tries to be neutral while suggesting solutions and they follow his suggestions too, but still, somehow they go back to their depressed, anxious about life, health-and-relationships state. Please suggest.

If they are not receptive or cooperative, then they are suffering and probably getting some gratification from it. Your dad has to follow a technbique of detached attachment: that is, he need not take it to heart if they do not follow his advice and clearly says that to them and functions seriously like that. In time, they will get teh message and either will stop playing games or will take him seriously enough and obey his advice. They are older and so they may be more senile if the age difference is too much. Your dad should not take anything to heart and just be there to continue giving them advice but not worried if they follow it or not.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. Crying is never a trouble. In fact crying is good to wash off your worries. But excessive emotional sadness is definitely is not good. This show low emotional quotient. This leads to low self esteem and low self confidence. I suggest corrective measures like personality development training online. Take care.

Hi, lybrate-user I can understand that weight gain is a big problem now a day. The main reason behind weight gain is eating more of the processed food, less of exercise and drinking less water. You observe the habit of him, you will find that these three reasons. Hence to lose weight cutting on processed food, sugary food, drinking 3-4 liter of water daily and exercise for min of 30 min per day is essential. Balanced food is the key to long term weight loss. I can suggest a diet plan and some dietary supplement for quick weight loss. I am suggesting a general diet and supplement for him. Sample Diet PlanBreakfast – green Juice.Lunch – vegetable pulao with pineapple fruits. Dinner – paneer with green salad. Snacks – 25g almonds with green tea. Suggested supplement Microfruit tab after breakfast Cytofresh tab after breakfast Lipolyzer tummy tab after lunch Lipolyzer hips and thigh tab after dinner.

I married in 2012, was arrange. Before the wedding we were talking on the phone. Then I was think . She is a good girl and will be a good life partner. But after marriage it was not certain. As soon as I had thought it was the opposite. She not like to live with my family in it together . They all want something separate and individual and some of his childish antics have hatred in my heart for her. An act of her has always hated the feeling throughout. Which has resulted in the recent. Those that I was upset with the private job pressure. For this, I wanted to own a small business. Something for which lack of money was falling. For this I wanted to sell our gold jewelery . But she did not support me, and My dream was break to a small business. Am now unemployed because of its 6 months. That's one reason that I 'll hate my wife . And I do not like to be with her. Now I am so frustrated and depressed. I do not think there ever will be able to forget this. Some time ago, for not getting a job because I had decided to commit suicide. But I have avoided death . But I do not think I have much time venture to avoid death. So doctor tell me how to adjust in this situation. My big problem is m not want to live my life with wife because I so hate her.

Marriage is about love, understanding and adjustments. But expectations are the biggest hurdle in all these. Marriage is about what two people as a couple want to do, unfortunately in indian joint families it is what the family wants from the daughter in law, which seems to be the case in your marriage. From what you are describing it seems that you two have not developed a relationship of trust. In the absence of trust their cannot be any love. When a woman marries a man, it becomes his duty to uphold her respect in the family, by giving that respect to the woman in your life, you ensure that she will stand by you in all times. But in the absence of trust, and in a situation where the husband is not supportive, she will also decide not to support. The best for you would be to develop a relationship with your wife, try to know her likes and dislikes. It is not fair to ask her to adjust to other people's or your likes all the time. At times you will also have to let her do what she likes. Keeping a family together doesn't mean that everyone has to do, see or eat the same thing. Only those relationships and families can be happy where everyone has the freedom to what they like within some boundaries. If you keep hating her, then you can't be happy. And thinking of dying is a very childish thought- why do you want to run away from the situation, without trying. If you can't bear to live with her, then it would be better to separate rather than dying.

Dear lybrate-user. In one way, being confused is good. In such conditions you will take decisions after much deliberation and such decisions will be always perfect. Decision taking power comes from experience. The more you are experienced in an aspect, the more you will be able to take decisions faster. Therefore, do not underestimate yourself. Get your experience and approach things with caution always. Take care.

Hi sir I use to chew gutka for a long time what are the precautions should I take?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
If it is Hans and gutkha products, they are both very dangerous. I am so glad that your intention is to quit these habits. There are no guarantees about stopping one’s addiction. But that does not mean we should not keep at it, over and over again until we succeed. Both are tobacco products and will therefore have addictive components to them. It may feel like you can’t stop but that it really not true. If you do not try, then it will never happen. You must try and try again until you succeed. The problem with addiction is that you have two products which are both conditioned to various events in your daily life and as such it will make it difficult but not impossible. You could work with an addiction counselor to help you process the rehabilitation. It is important to first find out about the ill-effects of tobacco use to have a reason that alarms you about continuing in the habit. The information is really scary and true. The nicotine in tobacco stimulates the heart beat to raise the blood pressure in no time at all. So you must avoid it like the plague: it is just very bad medicine for you. In fact it is highly toxic too. You will need to stop consuming any tobacco related items with immediate effect. Nicotine also reduces the erectile capacity of your penis to hamper satisfying sex. You should start vigorous exercises, gradually increasing it over a period of time. You need to replace the oral urge with some healthy food substitute to satiate the need. You may also take hard candy or chewing gum. If the urge is too strong, then use nicotine chewing gum or nicotine patches, for a little while until the tobacco drive reduces, substantially. Both will help but I am inclined to favor the gum because it is an oral habit and it will occupy the mouth just as though you were still chewing tobacco. When you want it will be easier to give up the gum. Keep yourself occupied or engaged with interesting activities during the times when it is most tempting. Keep the company of non-users for some time i.e. at least for the first 21 days. Above all announce it to everyone that you have quit consuming Hans. You must persevere with the best support until you defeat this addiction. Counseling is very useful in the initial stages and when temptations are at their highest.

Dear lybrate user, one of the major nutritional substance required for human body is carbohydrate. We take carbohydrate in the form of rice, wheat, sugar etc. The complex molecules of carbohydrate are broken down into simple glucose molecules during digestion & released in the blood stream to be absorbed by the muscle cells. Muscle cells utilise the glucose molecules to release energy by breaking down those glucose molecules. Insulin hormone plays a vital role in the absorption of the glucose molecules by the muscle cells. In abnormal conditions, either due to less production of insulin or due to resistance to insulin, the process of absorption of glucose by the muscles comes to a stand still. The glucose molecules remains in the bloodstream which results in the increase in the blood sugar level. The failure of utilisation of the glucose molecules by the muscle cells results in production of less energy than normal condition. This is externally manifested as the fatigue & tiredness of the patient. This excess amount of blood sugar compels the kidney to function more than normal level in order to excrete the blood sugar molecules through urine. As a result the patient suffers from frequent urination. This abnormal condition is clinically known as diabetes mellitus. Once a patient is diagnosed with diabetes he has to take regular medicine to keep his blood sugar level within normal limits. Take homoeopathic mother tincture gymnema sylvestra q, 30 drops, thrice daily, after meals, in a cup of water. Also you need to walk at least 1 hour daily without any interval. Also you need to take a low carbohydrate rich diet. Avoid rice, sweet dishes, fruits, cold drinks, fast foods, alcoholic beverages, potato etc.

Weight gain after quitting smoking does not increase the risk of heart disease

In a study published in Journal of American Association, researchers from Switzerland have shown that in non?diabetics, weight gain after quitting smoking does not take away the cardiovascular benefits of quitting smoking.

There is a net cardiovascular benefit of smoking cessation despite subsequent weight gain. Smoking cessation is always beneficial for smokers.

People gain 6 to 8 pounds of weight after quitting smoking. In the study, quitting smoking was also linked with a decreased risk of heart attack or cardiac death compared to smokers.

Hi, your mind may need some kind of rest. You should try to be active through exercise. Meditation is preferable for you to get rid of running and clouding of thoughts. Eat healthy food - nuts, green leafy vegetables and lots of water. Apart from that if your thoughts are persistent, anxiety provoking and interferes with your daily activities. Then you should consult a psychiatrist. all the best

It is unrealistic to believe you can rid yourself of frustration forever, but you can learn to do things to minimize your frustrations and to make sure you do not engage in unhealthy responses to frustration. You will need to learn to distinguish between what you hope will happen, what will probably happen, and what actually happened. Life inevitably has its ups and downs -- its moments of relaxation and times of tension. When you learn to truly accept this reality, you come one step closer to being able to deal with frustration in a healthy way. There are several types of problems that we encounter in everyday living: those which you know can be solved, those which you are not sure if they can be solved or not, those you know are totally out of your control, and those you are so confused about that you do not even know what the problem is. You need to be able to accurately assess your abilities to alter situations that prevent you from solving your problems and reaching your goal. Then you will be able to assess which of the types of problems you have encountered, and you will then be able to develop a realistic plan. Learning to take things in stride will also help you to be more content and happy which, in turn, will help you to more easily overcome anger and frustration. If you are upset, sad, anxious, or depressed you will have less patience and tolerance for everything and everybody. Ask if any more doubts are there.

Is it ok if person smokes as well as does enough physical work normal for his health?
Smoking is associated with significantly serious health problems like lung cancer, oral cancer, impotence, etc. The risk of cancer is even higher in those with family history of smoking. Smoking also causes harm to people around you as they become passive smokers. The best thing is to quit smoking immediately to promote good health. There is no connection between exercise and smoking; exercise will not reverse the harmful effects of smoking.
