I am so much depressed due to my bf. He left me for 2 years due to family reasons. I was gone through bad depression, weight loss, insomnia, now again he felt sry and we are in relationship where he doesn't understand me. He doesn't let me feel happy. I want to leave him but I can't. Everytime this ends up with thought of suicide. I hate my life. I am student of bds 1st year. I am not able to answer in viva though I know answer.

You are a student now and you concentrate on studies. Your main intention should be on completing your degree. If you waste your time on unnecessary issues you will lose one year. Wasted time never returns. Later you will regret for that. So act bravely and concentrate on your studies. If your boyfriend does not understand you or your feelings , then he is no good. Don't enter into a deep relationship and repent later. Avoid him till you finish your exams.

I have a lot of anger management issues. Any suggestions? Can my diet affect it too?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Diet may have some effect but not much. At your age, this development is quite significant because during this time there will be a spurt in the production of the male sex hormone, testosterone, which has a duration of two years. Due to this chemical alone, there are three identified features that present itself over which you will have poor control: you will be sexually active, aggressive and rebellious, and you will have acne and pimple problems. Then if you have unresolved childhood issues, they will compound the situation and fuel uncontrolled behavior. Please remember that you may not be aware of all this. Your anger is probably related to some deep rooted anger that you are carrying from your childhood. It is probably being provoked further by a spurt in the production of the male hormone testosterone, mentioned earlier. After that, it will subside and stabilize. Discuss with your parents whether they are aware of anything that might have provoked this anger from your childhood. Then either by yourself or along with your parents do meet with a counselor and discuss the same. The counselor will educate you about emotions and help you develop skills to express your anger in appropriate ways. You need anger management classes but you also need to know of its origins. Exercise is a very good way to expend the energy of anger so that it is under some control. But it still needs to be expressed. With regard to expression, it is better if you just spoke about it and gave it vent. No physical action of violence is acceptable and definitely, you should not treat your parents to any kind of aggression. Even if your anger is justified, violence is not the way. Finally, if you are a spiritual person, it is possible to hand over your anger to God to deal with it for you: it works really well.

HI Mr. lybrate-user, I want you to practice JPMR. Jacobson’s relaxation technique, also known as progressive relaxation therapy, is a type of therapy that focuses on tightening and relaxing specific muscle groups in sequence. By concentrating on specific areas and tensing and then relaxing them, you can become more aware of your body and physical sensations. Professionals who use this technique often combine it with breathing exercises or mental imagery. A guide may talk you through the process, starting at the head or feet and working through the body. Practicing relaxation techniques can have a variety of health benefits. It can relieve anxiety, lower your blood pressure, reduce the likelihood of seizures, and improve your sleep. Research shows a connection between relaxation and blood pressure, perhaps because stress is a contributing factor to high blood pressure. There is also some evidence that Jacobson’s relaxation technique can effectively help people with epilepsy reduce the amount and frequency of seizures. Jacobson’s relaxation technique is commonly used to help people with insomnia as well. Several studies have looked at whether or not it’s effective. Some have had mixed results, while others show promise. In some cases people who didn’t get more sleep still felt better rested after relaxation therapy. Whole-Body Technique Feet Bring your attention to your feet. Point your feet downward, and curl your toes under. Tighten your toe muscles gently, but don’t strain. Notice the tension for a few moments, then release, and notice the relaxation. Repeat. Become aware of the difference between the muscles when they’re tensed and relaxed. Continue to tense and relax the leg muscles from the foot to the abdominal area. Abdomen Gently tighten the muscles of your abdomen, but don’t strain. Notice the tension for a few moments. Then release, and notice the relaxation. Repeat. Become aware of the difference between the tensed muscles and the relaxed muscles. Shoulders and Neck Very gently shrug your shoulders straight up towards your ears. Don’t strain. Feel the tension for a few moments, release, and then feel the relaxation. Repeat. Notice the difference between the tensed muscles and the relaxed muscles. Focus on the neck muscles, first tensing and then relaxing until you feel total relaxation in this area. Here is the three-step process Close your hands tightly to feel the tension. Hold for 5 seconds, and slowly allow the fingers to release one by one until they’re completely relaxed. Press your lips tightly together and hold for 5 seconds, feeling the tension. Slowly release. The lips should be completely relaxed and barely touching after the release. Finally, press your tongue against the roof of your mouth for 5 seconds, and notice the tension. Slowly relax the tongue until it’s sitting on the floor of the mouth and your jaws are slightly unclenched. Do it two times a day. Consult for same.

Dear Lybrate User, I think you are too conscious about your own self. I think you need to boost your self confidence and don't strive for perfection every time. Enjoy all the activities in life whether it is playing cricket, or eating food or sleeping. Look at all the good points life has offered you and enjoy each and every moment of life. You are very young, have a dream then make a plan to achieve that dream. Take small and firm steps towards your dream. You have to make your life healthy and interesting. Please understand that semen is produced in every healthy young adult male body, at regular intervals. It appears that you are not masturbating, hence the semen that is produced in your body, comes out automatically, at night. This is neither sexual weakness nor it is to be called "nightfall problem" This is very natural. Do not worry about it. You may talk to a Counsellor to get more awareness about your own self i.e. To know how your mind and body works and why physical and mental health are important. All the best.

God help those who help themselves. Jo bhi hua sahi nahi hua but aage life jeena hai to uske hisab se decide karo, ek baar usko call karo aur poori baat discuss karo uske baad hi decide ho payega pahle bina darey usse baat karo kyunki aise ghoot ke koi fayda nahi. At least you will not regret in future that I did't try. Then accordingly we can plan further. Good luck.

It can be a nightmare or night terror. Do not worry if it is not affecting your day time functioning. If this occurs repeatedly and is affecting to you, consult a psychiatrist and certain medications t regulate sleep cycle (not sleeping pills), can help you come out of the problem. All the best.

You need to relax yourself before trying to concentrate or trying to study. Only when you feel calm and relaxed you can focus. Go out for regular walks to start with it, or if you are into playing any sport start playing it in a routine everyday for some time.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. You may be correct. Your girl friend could be mentally in relationship with you. But do not take it as a conclusion. You have to wait and watch. You also has observed many things about her like she behaves immature etc. I suggest you to propose to her, if you are interested and immediately you will get your answer. Take care.

Dear , panic disorder is due to underlying anxiety and anxiety is to be treated first. Please address your anxiety with the help of psychotherapy, meditation, exercise and life style changes. I will help you in these aspects if you desire so. Your psychiatrist is the person who is supposed to prescribe ssris and you should trust him in this matter. The dosage depends on several aspects and your psychiatrist takes care of every aspects before prescribing. You may talk to your psychiatrist regarding your weight gain problem. Take care.

First of all you should take rest for 1-2 days so that your body can fight with underlying infection with its full immunity and start the below medication:- Take gelesemium 200, twice daily . Take Eupatrium perf 200, 5 drops thrice daily. Take Antifebrinum 3x, 2 tabs , thrice daily. Take Alfavena malt, 1 tsf, thrice daily. Drink lots of water and take light homemade food like dalia and khichdi, avoid oily, spicy, fried, junk and cold drinks. In case of high uncontrollable fever, don't panic you should do cold sponging to lower down the temperature.If fever does not goes then go for a set of blood tests. Revert me with feedback. Take care of your health.GOOD DAY.Take care.

You must be very careful because your stress will be felt by the unborn child biochemically. You are in fact responsible for the health of two of you: yourself and your child. You must be kept in the best of emotional and psychological health apart from the physical fitness. If you can take your husband for counseling to your gynecologist she will explain all this to him. Even if he does not listen to her then talk to his parents and have them intervene. You yourself can also go for counseling to a clinical counselor and that person will help you handle your emotions especially the feelings of anger. You must be emotionally well balanced and always in good composure. Please do not neglect this state of yours under any circumstances. Somebody out there is in a position to help you by talking to your husband.

Loss of interest, decreased concentration and attention, feeling low and disturbed sleep or appetite are some of the signs of depression. Consult a psychiatrist who will assess you in detail. If you are feeling suicidal or hopeless, seek professional help immediately. Try some relaxation techniques like yoga, meditation and deep breathing. Indulge in hobbies. Spend time with people close to you.

Hi, after all its winters, its quite ok to feel little lazy, you can have some good food so that you can be energetic. Avoid oily foods, high sugars as well because it will make you more lethargic. Go for more fruits and vegetables, fluids and soups.
