I am having a relationship problem with my girlfriend. I am unable to say that she hurts me directly without hurting her.

Dear,relationship problems are always underscored by love and affection. Once you have pure love and affection, relationship problems are like simple pebbles in dal. You will have to become mature to take it and throw it and ignore it. If you make it an issue, everybody suffer. Take care.

How many acupuncture treatments does it take to relieve stress? Is this something that needs continual treatment?

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
How many acupuncture treatments does it take to relieve stress? Is this something that needs continual treatment?
Acupuncture treatment involves the insertion of fine, sterile needles into specific sites (acupuncture points) along the body's meridians to clear energy blockages and encourage the normal flow of qi through the individual.The frequency and number of treatments differ from person to person. Some people experience dramatic relief in the first treatment. For complex or long-standing chronic conditions, one to two treatments per week for several months may be recommended. For acute problems, usually fewer visits are required, usually eight to ten visits in total. An individualized treatment plan that includes the expected number of treatments will be discussed during your initial visit.

Nahi aap jo describe kar rahe ho woh Parkinson's ka lakshan nahi. Mood disorder (mania) mein aisa hota hai. Agar aisa bartaav woh pehli baar kar rahe ho to usually woh koi brain ka problem ya body me aur koi change ki wajah se se ho sakta hain. Unko psychiatrist ki zaroorat hain. Kafi sare investigations chahiye honge, including MRI and HIV.

My head always pains in a extreme level.I get angry very soon if things don't happen as I want,or anything goes wrong I can't be quite. If the person is bigger than me I don't think I should not talk loud with t hem,after words I feel guilty,but we can't take words back. Before 8 years my nature was opposite I dont use to talk harshly with anyone,but know I can't bare wrong things . What to do. I feel very guilty but I can't control my self

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

You see we always recommend that people express themselves every time they have feelings. But we also inform them that they need to express feelings in an appropriate manner. If you don?t, the expressions will backfire and make you worse than before. Acting impulsive and screaming and shouting will make the situation worse. Then you feel guilt and give yourself a headache. Almost all headaches are related to unexpressed anger. So now the moot question is, is this anger from the present or does it come from your distant past. Whichever it is, it has to be dealt with now. Exercise gives vent to the energy of anger. So it is proposed as a good measure to lessen the impact of it. You must meet with a counselor and learn some skills with regard to emotions and a lot of your impulsive behavior will come down drastically and you will behavior with decorum. Learn to offer your anger to God, especially if it is from your past, if you are the spiritual type. Even so every time you feel anger now, it must be dealt with promptly.

Dear Sunaina. Welcome to lybrate. I understand your problem. Concentration is attention span. Attention span is at any given time is less than 10 minutes for any person. You should be able to be creative in your learning tasks. Over and above you should have interest and dedication to whatever you do to have proper attention. Search google for '' effective learning methods '' and adopt some of them. Your concentration will improve. Consult a psychologist online for counseling. Exam related anxiety is performance anxiety. Once you learn to study systematically your performance anxiety will be gone. Take care.

I am 43 yes, have bipolar disorder for past 20 yes. Can it pass on to my children. 8 years old another 16 yr. What symptoms show this disorder.

DPM, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Mumbai
Yes, bipolar disorder is hereditary. Your children have a 10-15% chance of having bipolar disorder. The symptoms mostly manifest in middle or late adulthood. Keep an eye on any mood symptoms that your children show. Educate them about the illness. There is no need to be afraid, as most of the times the symptoms can be controlled with medicines. Also, most patients live a relatively normal life as the symptoms are episodic. One should monitor sleep changes and mood changes. Any extreme deviation could be a signal for an episode.

Dear Ajay. Welcome to lybrate. A person above 50 will be naturally ageing. Secondly there is no safe limit to alcohol consumption. Alcohol is a poison and your liver will be damaged even if you take a single peg. Take care.

Alternative Medicine Specialist, Chandigarh
Tips on Work /Life Balance:

In theory this formula sounds good: “One third of your time should be spent taking care of business. Then spend one third taking care of the inner and the physical you. And one third for family, friends, community, and the world at large.” That would be desirable if we lived in an ideal world.

The answer is: Simply do your best! The key is to learn to be present in whatever third you're living in. So when you're working, work. And when you’re loving, love. And when you're eating, eat.

The secret is this: Listen to your body, pay attention to the signals it gives off.
When you listen to your body, you will know when it’s functioning at optimal levels. Your body will tell you when you've had enough sleep or when you've had enough food.

It’s about living more mindfully. It’s about being aware of where you are, in excess or in deficiency, and taking the steps needed to restore balance and achieve that natural state of equilibrium. Your body will thank you.

Doctor, I'm a 24 year old girl. I have a slight loss of memory when it come to work that I keep forgetting about certain works I did the day before or the payments I made and received. This is creating a little problem at work. And I do keep over thinking about my future as I want a career and I have been getting proposals for marriage, when i'm not at all ready for it. I wish to work and make some money. I keep avoiding all the family get together and meetings with relatives as they keep asking me about my exams (I'm a CA student. I wanted to be a designer in the first place, but was ok with mothers choice. Even I agreed to it. But I regret it very badly now. I asked several times to switch my career choice and all I kept getting as reply was "try. Try" I am literally tired now. I could not pass the levels in CA and now I stand with a UG degree and 3 years experience. Best part is articleship is not counted as experience when you apply for jobs. I still tried and my applications are getting rejected. I sleep a lot. I keep thinking a lot. And Im worried about my future. Above these worries to have a proper career, my parents want me to get married. I do not want to marry without my own job, and live the rest of my life with someones money. I want my own income. Doctor, I do not know if these are nonsense or if i'm being immature, but I do face a lot of mental stress and my friends say that I have changed and become more silent, when I used to be a very lively person. I want support from my parents side. All I want is that. If I should be able to do something, then I need only them to be strong and have faith in me and god. I tried convincing them, but every next time they come up with another proposal that too of 31 and 32 years old,(they think age defines maturity, but I do not believe when they them self is an example. as I have not mentioned anything about my choices. Please guide me if i'm wrong with my views regarding life and career. Thank you Doctor.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. You are perfectly correct about your career and goals and even in the matter of your marriage. Your problem is saturation. Your attitude is the reason behind the saturation. Your parents are asking you to try and try again. You are disappointed because you feel ca is not for you. How can you say so? at the age of 4, when you started going to school, was maths you desired. English or hindi you liked? did you like or desire science? still you learned. How and why? simply because you understood its requirement and did not possess negative attitude as you possess now. Remember the proverb" nothing is impossible" if you have the right sense and positive attitude. I suggest online counselling. Take care.

I am suffering from body aches after getting up in the morning with having bad breath also. Want to know some solution?
Bad breath could be due to 1. Poor oral hygiene/ gingivitis/caries tooth 2. Maintain good oral hygiene by brushing your teeth twice daily 3. Rinse your mouth with hexidine/betadine mouth wash 2-3 times daily 4. Avoid smoking/chewing tobacco if any 5. Use dental flush to clean food particle stuck in between teeth 6. Consult dentist for examination of oral cavity and follow advice and treatment accordingly.

I didnt remember name after 1 or 2 days memory loss problem. I am facing what can i do?

Post Graduate Diploma In Rehabilitation Psychology, M A Clinical Psychology
Psychologist, Bhopal
Hi VIJAY Problem described by you is very common. Often we fail to register the names in the first place since introductory conversations are very brief. Next time you come across a new name 1. Make sure you have clearly heard the name, 2. Associate the name with the persons face, persona, actions 3. Repeat the name in following conversation. Ex. Ajay would you like to have coffee. Ajay it was nice meeting you. If your problem persist and you find you are missing out on other things too, you might want to consult psychologist/ psychiatrist. All the best!!

The people who are surrounded us ...
First you should tell about yourself. What you are doing for society. What is your work for society. Briefly explain about your service for society. First introspect your self what is my primary responsibility for society. 1. Can I respect to my parents. 2. Can I help anyone. 3. Can I fulfill my role in my family. 4. Can I help any poor people. If you perfect about mentioned activities then you have right question to society. Ok.

Signs and Symptoms of Borderline Personality Disorder

D.P.M, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Mumbai
Signs and Symptoms of Borderline Personality Disorder

Borderline personality disorder is connected with the mental health of the patient and is usually seen in the way the patient perceives himself or herself. This has a deep impact on the brain and overall functioning of the patient. It leads to problems in the personal life and relationships of the patient. These problems are usually triggered by a fear of abandonment. Let us explore the signs and symptoms of this condition to understand it in a better manner:

  1. Discouraging Attitude: One of the earliest signs of this disorder includes having an attitude that is very discouraging. This attitude may remain limited to the patient or may extend to the people around him or her.
  2. Self-Identity: This disorder has a marked impact on the self-identity of the patient. There is usually a rapid decline in the way the patient may view himself or herself. A self-deprecating attitude will usually be seen among patients suffering from this condition, where the self-esteem hits an all-time low along with low self-confidence.
  3. Relationships: Whether it the patient's personal relationships, family, friends or work based relationships, there will be a sharp decline in the quality of interactions that the patient indulges in, due to this disorder. The interactions and dynamics of all relationships will usually take on an intense turn as the patient will have varied unfounded concerns that come from the fear of abandonment. This usually stems from some form of childhood trauma triggered by parental separation or loss.
  4. Impulsive Behavior: Patients suffering from this disorder will also display impulsive behavior that may lead to gambling, and other risky behavior. This kind of behavior can usually lead to accidents and losses as well as further lowering of the sense of self-esteem that the patient may experience. Also, abuse and binge eating are some of the symptoms of this kind of behavior.
  5. Suicidal threats: There may be threats of suicide by patients who are suffering from this disorder. This usually happens because most of these patients end up feeling lost and empty, which makes them think that their life and all its activities are completely futile. If you happen to meet someone who consistently talks about how useless he or she is and how nothing in life seems to have a purpose, then you may want to recommend this person to a psychiatrist as these are the earliest signs and symptoms of borderline personality disorder.
  6. Mood swings: The patient will also suffer from intense mood swings. These could last up to several days and even weeks. These mood swings could go from happiness to severe anxiety and even shame.
