Autism is a neurodevelopment disorder in which the children have decreased social interaction, stereotyped behaviour, language problem along with co-morbid medical disorders. There are some medications which can help to control her behavioral issues but the main onus lies on occupational/speech therapy and regular counseling for the parents and child.

Recently I was on some meds for my OCD and high anxiety. Did not help but made me gain absurd 10 kgs in just 2 months. Now it's been another 3 months after I stopped them. Been actively working out cardio and on strict diet but still not been able to remove those extra kgs especially man boobs. Is there any fat burner to assist in losing weight without altering my high anxiety condition? PS I'm not on any meds right now. T hanks.

How Smoking is Harmful For Your Health?

How Smoking is Harmful For Your Health?

The risks and harms of smoking are pretty much common knowledge to most people. Especially when the pack of cigarettes practically screams it out to you in bold letters. Yet, as statistics would say, smoking in young adults has been on the rise in the recent years. What makes them take this step? Maybe it is peer pressure, or maybe they do it for the thrill of it. Every country takes a great initiative in educating their population, yet some fail to understand the complexity of the situation.

Here are some of the reasons that will tell you that even a single puff of the deadly tobacco can severely harm your health and general well-being

  1. Cigarette smoking is the leading cause of cancer. It can cause cancer in most organs of the body. Smoking cigarettes can cause the following
    • Nose cancer
    • Throat cancer
    • Larynx cancer
    • Mouth cancer
    • Oesophageal cancer
    • Lung cancer
    • Liver cancer
    • Cervix cancer
    • Stomach cancer
    • Kidney cancer
    • Colorectal cancer
    • Cervical cancer etc.
  2. Smokers are more prone to respiratory diseases because smoking is capable of compromising the immune system of the body.
  3. Autoimmune diseases such as Crohn’s disease and rheumatoid arthritis are more likely to occur in smokers as their immune system is compromised by smoking.
  4. Smoking has been linked to diabetes type 2. This type of diabetes develops during adulthood. The more cigarettes a person smokes, the more likely is the person to develop this disease.
  5. Smoking puts you at risk of developing several heart diseases such as angina, heart attacks, etc. because the nicotine in the body results in the lowering of good cholesterol. This causes deposition of bad cholesterol in the arteries.
  6. Tobacco can cause tooth decay and several other oral problems such as gingivitis and other problems of the gum.
  7. Cigarettes constrict your blood vessels. This constant narrowing of blood vessels can cause erectile dysfunction in men and leads to the infertility in both men and women. It also makes them difficult to achieve orgasms.
  8. You might find yourself craving for cigarettes when you’re stressed out. This is because the effect of nicotine in the cigarettes is lowered by the hormone produced during a stressful situation, i.e. cortisone.
  9. Nicotine that causes momentary central nervous system stimulation can cause addiction and dependence. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a General Physician.

Hello doctors. It's my humble request, pls read this story fully and guide me on this. I am 23 years old boy, in a distant relationship with a girl since 6 years. My relationship not started with her on the basis of physical appearance like what guys look in a girl today. But it all started with an emotional attachment, I never took her as a mean of satisfying my sexual need. I did not feel lustfull to her, but I loved her. Though I felt sexually with her but it was a deep emotional bond rather than just a lustful feeling. I always used to be excited with her, used to cry for her, it was all ok. But things are not ok since last 2 and half year, I had been in a state of extreme depression for about a year, and also had have a lot of negative thoughts, it was sexual intrusive thoughts. Actually I worked in a company for two years, where the moral circumstances among staffs were not good, they watched on girls vulgarly, which I never found good, they used to use abusing words in their every conversation. Even people commented vulgarly on the females of their daughter's age. Whenever I faced their those kind of behaviors, I got panicked, their those vulgar comments felt in my ear like a needle piercing deeply. I was a very morally-good person. But what happened is that, I started having sexual intrusive thoughts, do not know why, may be becoz of their comments which always used to pop in my head. I still have those Intrusive thoughts, I am fighting them since last 3 years. I changed my life totally. I was a very emotional person, but now I do not Feels emotions, for no one. I also had have a lot of disappointment in my relationship with my lover, she is very lovable but one thing which is not good with her is that she never accept her faults, whenever we had a mess, she never messaged or called me first, always I did. This always disappointed me. When I was in the state of depression and a very high anxiety (caused by those intr. Thoughts), I started watching porn and masturbating heavily, 5-6 times a day, Whenever I had a mess with her or I was low, sad, anxious, I masturbated to make myself calm, But after every masturbation, I felt a deep guilt, how can I do that, I love my lover with the deepest of mt heart then how can I watch those girls in the porn, I felt myself cheating her. I have been struggling with this since last 3 years, have lost emotions, for her and also for others. Now I always ask myself, do I love her. Which somewhere in my heart I know that I do, but still I ask myself. My head feels different now. It seems like something is missing in the upper part of mt brain, I have started stammering a bit, I feel like I am not in a real world. Earlier I I used to be ok in between, but now I never get ok. I do not feel emotions, never get sexually aroused. Two things I need to know, 1)- do I love her. 02)- What should I do.

Akash, you seem to be suffering from guilt and low self esteem. You have mixed up your guilty feelings with masturbation and that has caused you to suffer from anxiety and depression. You seem to be a very sincere and sensitive person. Kindly get a few things cleared in your mind. Most if not all teenagers of your age take to masturbation and fantasizing since you do not have a partner with whom you can share your sexual desires. Masturbation is the only way to let out your sexual desires which is normal. Watching porn is not desirable, but you have not in anyway harmed your relationship with your girl friend by doing it. Thoughts always come to everyone's mind-sometimes good, sometimes bad, but so far as you do not misuse them and harm yourself and others, they are benign. You need not feel guilty. Your feelings for your lover are pure and you are a morally good person as you say. Go ahead removing all negative thoughts. You are unnecessarily blaming yourself for doing nothing wrong. You need not change nor follow others, let them be what they are, you stick to your morals. Good luck.

Walking and biking are both excellent forms of cardiovascular exercise which, when performed regularly, can ward off disease, shed pounds, improve mental outlook. Each have their merits and drawbacks, and which is the best choice for you largely depends upon what you'll enjoy doing most, the health of your joints and how much weight you'd like to lose. The Pros of Walking- walking is quickly becoming one of the country's most popular fitness activities. It is easily performed nearly anywhere, requires little equipment and doesn't pound the joints as hard as running. The Cons of Walking- Ironically, one of walking's pros is also one of its cons: it's easy. An average 155-pound adult walking briskly only burns about 267 calories per hour -- and that may not be enough to maintain a low weight, depending on caloric intake. But most importantly, a person with joint problems in the ankles or knees may find walking quickly or over long distances too difficult to do over a prolonged period of time. The Pros of Biking- Like walking, biking is low-impact and easy. It's also fun, and burns a lot of calories -- significantly more than brisk walking. Biking builds leg (muscular) strength The Cons of Biking- Although biking is fun and provides numerous health benefits, there are also cons. First, bikes are expensive, and they require upkeep. Second, people who have knee problems may find biking difficult. To get the best exercise benefits, bikers must try to avoid long downhill stretches and straightaways, because these conditions don't keep the heart rate high. Finally, bikers must watch for road hazards, traffic and weather conditions, all of which can turn a nice ride into a nasty nightmare. I hope the above answer has helped you.

at your age, memory problems like amnesia, dementia or alzheimer's are not common. Many young people do complain having problems with memory. These problems are due to either they are too busy or due to anxiety and stress. Busy people use organizers or employ a personal assistant because they can't remember every task. You need to understand this. If you still say, you are having memory problems, we need to check your memory using memory test. You may contact a clinical psychologist or neurologist for memory test and further investigation. Take care.
