I have pain in my right hand. Please advise.

Give pressure the dipping point on the portion between the thumb and the index finger on the back of the palm. Press and release for 15 times where the pain is more. This will solve the problem. Further do some wrist rotation exercise.

Dear lybrate-user, it is good that you wants to stop smoking, try this method we are destroying our health by smoking normal human takes oxygen into lungs 12 -15 times per minute (12 - 15 breaths) lungs mixes oxygen in blood and it purifies our blood, by smoking we are mixing not only oxygen adding and mixing bad elements like nicotine etc. In oxygen, that spoils our blood and our body all organs like lungs, heart, kidney etc. In our body. How to quit: by willingness and willpower" where there is a will there is a way" reduce one by one day by day.

HI gaurav, See in your situation, if the girl you had sex with is not HIV infected you may not contract HIV but the only way to know whether you have or not is get yourself tested in 3 months time. Dont stress out so much. Have patience.

I am 38 years old lady. I am very short tempered. I have high anger specifically in menstrual days. I feel depressed, irritated and angry in periods. I can't control myself. I had too many break ups in relations because of my depression and anger. Now I feel insecurity. Life becomes tough for me. What should I do to control my anger? I don't know what I say during my anger. Then I feel guilty but it would be too late. Please help me to save my relationship.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
During Menses mood changes is common and you can only control it . But for depression you need antidepressants and do meditation and yoga. Some of the "typical" responses to frustration include anger, quitting (burn out or giving up), loss of self-esteem and self-confidence, stress and depression. Anger management: 10 tips to tame your temper ANGER: There is a saying "Frustration begets anger and anger begets aggression." Direct anger, is expressed toward the object perceived as the cause of the frustration. If a machine does not work, you might hit it or kick it. If someone gets in your way, you could verbally threaten them or push them aside. If the source of the frustration is too powerful or threatening for direct aggression, displaced aggression is often used. The aggression is redirected toward a less threatening and more available object. An angry person often acts without thinking. The person has given in to the frustration and they have given up restraint. Anger can be a healthy response if it motivates us to positive action but all too often the actions we engage in when angry are destructive. Indeed, if we could see a videotape of ourselves getting angry, the humiliation might well help cure us of anger. When you feel frustration building, you have to practice learned responses that lead to healthy actions instead of destructive ones. GIVING UP: Giving up on a goal can be productive if the goal is truly out of reach. However, more often giving up (quitting or being apathetic) is another form of giving in to frustration. When repeatedly frustrated, people can drop out of school, quit jobs, or move away. Apathy is giving up all of your goals, so you cannot be frustrated by trying to reach them. We live in difficult time and we have to be persistent in order to accomplish. Consider how many projects you began, and then gave up, because you became frustrated and lost patience. Make a list of things you started and quit because they seemed too difficult. Now calculate the disappointment and loss you suffered by not dealing with the frustration in a more healthy way. Try to remember that quitters never win, and winners never quit. Losing your temper means you're a quitter. LOSS OF CONFIDENCE: is a terrible frequent side effect of giving up and not fulfilling your goal. A loss of self-confidence and self-esteem, means that If we quit once, then the next time we plan a goal, we may not be able to accurately assess our ability to carry it out and we stop trusting ourselves and our own abilities. This became a self-fulfilling and self-destructive attitude. You need to be able to learn that when the going gets tough, you say to yourself "It is worth it!" and by following through, it not only gets the job done, but it builds self-confidence. STRESS: is the "wear and tear" our body and mind experiences as we adjust to the frustrations our continually changing environment. Too frequently, extreme, or prolonged frustration and stress strains us and generates distress signals. Our body experiences distress signals in a variety of ways, often in the form of: irritability, anger, fatigue anxiety, headache, depression, stomach aches, hypertension, migraines, ulcers, heart attacks, or colitis. DEPRESSION: Depression can affect almost every aspect of your life. It affects people of all ages, income, race, and cultures. Depression can affect the way you eat and sleep the way you feel about yourself, the way one think about things, and the way you interact with others. While we all feel depression at various appropriate times in our lives, excess or inappropriate depression cannot be easily dismissed or wished away. OTHER REACTIONS: abuse of drugs & alcohol is self-destructive and usually futile attempt at dealing with frustration, as are many eating and weight problems and addictions Whenever the immediate effects of the addictive behaviour wear off, users find themselves back in the same, or even worse, frustrating situation. Learning To Deal With Frustration 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. Treatment of Frustration Frustration and anger are fundamental emotions that everyone experiences from time to time. From a very early age, people learn to express frustration by copying the behaviour they see modelled around them, and by expressing frustration and angry behaviour and seeing what they can get away with. We all suffer from frustration, and being able to effectively deal with frustration is a very important skill to develop. Each person needs to learn how to control frustration, so that it does not control them. The following is a brief overview of types of frustration management programs and resources that have proved helpful in understanding and controlling frustration and anger. I have found several approaches to treatment that have been effective for my clients including: Individual and Group Therapy for Anger Management. A therapist who can observe and analyse your behaviour from an impartial perspective, can help you with your reality testing. A therapist knows many effective frustration and anger management strategies and will be able to help you develop a personalized set of strategies for changing both your thinking and behaviour. Depending on your needs, your therapist may work with you on breathing or meditation exercises to reduce frustration, safe and appropriate emotional and physical techniques to release frustration, communication, or cognitive restructuring (a method for disputing and changing the way you think). Relaxation and exercise Simple relaxation tools such as deep breathing and relaxing imagery can help calm down feelings of frustration and anger. Breathing deeply, from your diaphragm, will help while breathing from your chest won't relax you. While breathing, you can slowly repeat a calm word or phrase such as "relax," "calm down" or "take it easy." Non-strenuous exercise, like yoga, can relax your muscles and make you feel much calmer. Strenuous and vigorous exercise can also help you to work off frustration and angry feelings. Frustration can have a highly damaging impact on our frame of mind. It can turn a positive person into a person who sees nearly everything as a problem. It can slow you down, inhibit your progress, and at times completely immobilize you. We can become so wound up with our frustration that we do not, and cannot, think or act rationally. Our frustration can often exacerbate a situation and create a vicious circle. If we are convinced that our actions are not working, no matter how hard we try, we are much more likely to reduce, rather than increase, our chances of success. Remember, you cannot eliminate frustration. In spite of all your efforts, things will happen that will cause you frustration and anger. Life is filled with frustration, pain, loss, and the unpredictable actions of others. You can't change that; but you can change the way you let such events affect you. If you feel that your degree of frustration is really out of control, if it is having an impact on your relationships and on important parts of your life, you might consider counselling to learn how to handle it better. Please contact me Privately on this site or another therapist.

I am 24 years of age. I have a bf and we are in a relation fr abt 5 yrs. Our families know abt it and everything is fine. I had askd something abt my relationship before also. I jst want to ask something particular. This might seem to be irritating or nagging but that is actually what I feel. My bf has gone for a tour. I know that he needs to enjoy der instead of thinking abt me or anything else. I do not disturb him by calling. I just msg him on watsapp. I wait for his one msg. He comes online but does not msg me. I asked him since he came online he can jst leave a small msg which would make me feel good. He said that I was at work and so he dint text. Its a saturday and I wrk fr half day. Even though he forgot that its a saturday I do come home arnd 2-2: 30 for lunch break and he had come online just before that. It might seem a bit irritating but it really kills me from inside. Yesterday I jst pranked him saying I am admitted in the hospital. I gt a call frm him in d next 5 mins. Thats when I tld him that its not that he does not have time but its just abt your preference. When I am out of station I give him my time by myself. But I always have to ask him y he couldnt find a bit of time to even msg me. I am a person who feels these small things matter a lot and makes me feel good. He knows everything about me by nw. I just want an experts opinion on this bcos wen I tell him or explain to him he never agrees. He feels wat I say is wrong. Is taking small efforts more impnt then always giving reasons ?Kindly advise.

Psychologist, Delhi
Hi lybrate-user if these things will remain for long time then its not good for your relation. May be some time he could be busy but many times not responding is really the matter to consider. Talk with your bf about all this with calm mind ,try to sought out the problem. And you should also understand every relation demands some space. Stop fighting on small things. Any thing can be solve through conversation what it demands healthy discussion, don't sit and think about this and take some step.

In the first stage try to follow these 5 steps 1• A support system is very important. Just like drugs and alcohol addictions, no one should have to go through breaking an addiction alone. A support system can be made up of close family members, your spouse or a support group mentor. 2• Avoiding your compulsions. This may include avoiding certain places or watching porn. Avoiding your temptations is vital in trying to break your sex addiction. Because sex addicts view sex as their “high,” it’s important to know to avoid these compulsions. 3• Facing your problem. One of the top ways to recovery is admitting you have a problem. Until you admit you have a problem, nothing will help you get over sex addiction. Some people will need help getting to this stage. 4• Joining a support group. Many times people need to be around people who share the same addictions they are trying to battle. Finding like-minded people helps people discuss what they are feeling. Support groups help people realize they have a problem without being judgmental. 5• Seeking professional help. When trying to control a sex addiction on your own is no longer effective, professional help is needed. For that you will hve to visit in person because many a times face to face understanding is of great help.

For optimal brain function eat lean proteins which you get from dals, soya, tofu, mushrooms, dairy etc. Walnuts, flaxseed and chia seeds will give you much needed omega3 fatty acids.

If you are an occasional smoker - with public messages, health awareness programs and your own doctor's advice, you can quit. If you are a regular smoker, motivational therapy with a trained psychotherapist or a psychiatrist and enormous will power will help you quit. If you are a diseased smoker, consult a de addiction psychiatrist at the earliest. He may give you anti-smoking medications and de addiction treatment.

I am 22 years old girl and I don't know why I just feel irritated and annoyed from all people around me! I am in a relationship with a guy but I keep fighting from him for no reason or on silly reasons. I had a person in my past in he is there 24x7 in my mind when I am alone or upset, most of the time he is the reason for my sadness, but again as he left me and hurt me badly in my past I don't want him in my life I think of doing suicide all the time and most of the time feel helpless and miserable but I cant express this to others and so I try my best to stay happy. But I think I fake it all the time. Need help. Please suggest.

Hello. Its indeed a very delicate situation & you do need some expert medical help. The real problem here is your residual feelings of attraction towards him which are making you possessive. You also need to understand here that if your ex managed to move forward in his life; even you can also successfully move forward in life despite keeping your feelings of love for him. At present, the simplest advice I can give is start keeping a diary & start writing your thoughts multiple times a day especially during your times of distress, feelings of possession & when you become tearful. Secondly, you need to consult a psychiatrist & remain in his/her continuous supervision to effectively manage this difficult phase with help of medicines & counselling. Please consult privately.

10 Stress Busting Exercises for Working Moms

Stress is a very common factor for all working moms. Work, home and taking care of the child all together causes great amount of stress in working mothers. Exercising makes the body release endorphins, which are stress fighting hormones and help in relieving stress. There are various types of exercises which a working woman can do.

  1. High energy activities: High energy aerobic exercises lead to an increased heart rate, which results in production of more endorphins that make the body fight stress naturally. They include running, skipping, dancing, etc. These also improve physical and mental health.
  2. Yoga: Yoga is excellent for stress relief. It involves movement and stationary poses or postures, along with breathing exercises. Yoga enhances the body's natural response to relaxation, making your life healthier.
  3. Tai Chi: Tai chi involves a series of flowing movements of the body along with breathing. Having its roots in martial arts, Tai Chi provides efficient stress relief.
  4. Pilates: This exercise involves a series of movements and exercises performed on a mat. Pilates enhance strength, flexibility, endurance and immunity of the body.
  5. Martial arts: Martial arts is an effective way of unleashing energy and venting out frustration, which result in reducing stress. There are different forms of martial arts to choose from, which include Judo, karate, Taekwondo and several others.
  6. Kick boxing: Kick boxing reduces stress to a great extent and involves punching and kicking, which is performed with discipline. Kickboxing incorporates a rigorous workout schedule and is a great way to vent out frustration and energy, releasing stress.
  7. Team sports: Team sports are an ideal way to relieve stress, work out and have fun, altogether. Playing tennis, cricket or football offers a double amount of stress relief. Playing with your family will encourage bonding, fun and help in relieving stress together.
  8. On the go exercises: Several exercises such as running or jogging and cycling allow you to have a break, breathe some fresh country air and get your mind freshened up. Along with the release of energy, travelling across beautiful places helps in stress relief.
  9. Meditation: Meditation is an amazing mind exercise for stress relief. It requires great concentration and must be performed in a quiet atmosphere. Peace of mind is obtained.
  10. Gym activities: A gym has a lot of exercising instruments and devices. They involve power and strength and energy is unleashed. This is an ideal vent for anger and frustration, which results in great stress relief.

Working moms face a lot of stress, which arise from various aspects of life, including work, home and children. Stress busting exercises should be practised to maintain a perfect mental health. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.

Dear, according to your situation, you should not try to mend up the issue. Because later, after marriage, the problem could escalate. The best option is to forget the episode. When you decide to forget the episode, the psychological trauma will end within some time. I think two or three counseling sessions and psycho therapy techniques should solve your problem. Let me know if you are willing to undergo counseling sessions and tailor made psycho therapy through mobile. Take care.

It seems to be adjustment problem. Instead of speaking continuously pray in your mind. Take early morning walk. Share your feelings with your best friend. Think about positive things of your life.
