My husband looks at all the girls. But I do not mind. But before someday he told me he has some feel towards my sister even my sister is a mother of 2 child. Recently I noted he is looking at my sister I asked to him, he is saying he is feeling like want to see my sister in bad thought. I feel so problematic I feel like want to leave my husband. Is there any solution?

Relax dear lybrate-user. Your case is the classic example of our deteriorating cultural values. I mean it is not uncommon during the past few decades in our country. It seems to me that you are a possesive wife, nothing wrong in it if he is also a possessive husband. If he sees his'feeling' toward your sister is wrong and needs you to help forget her, then you should accept him and find ways to help him. On the contrary, if he tries to rationalize his behaviour, you can rethink about the relationship" divorce the ownership, not the ownerdom" I mean you can get out of this problem by emotionally detaching yourself from him. Because your children need a father, you need a huband (as a label) for some social issues. In other words, use your car for transportation but do not identify yourself (as a proud owner) with it. You can stop thinking and worrying about him by distracting youself engaging in child-rearing and learning something new to earn money etc. You can contact me by phone through lybrate if you need further guidance.

When I drink alcohol After 5 hours my body is infected and swelling my stomach in both side What is the solution of it?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Your constitution is not made to process alcohol. The reaction is the result of an accumulation of acetaldehyde, a metabolic byproduct of the catabolic metabolism of alcohol, and is caused by an acetaldehyde dehydrogenase deficiency. You are advised not to indulge in alcohol consumption for your own good.

Dear Deepa, you should understand this is just affection. If he is just a brother to you, you should never venture to have affair with him. Realize the situation sooner than later. Take care.

Dear user, I can understand. You must understand the difference between alcohol addiction and abuse. You can definitely quit alcohol in one go. Just stop it and swear not to drink again. Engage yourself in games and other engaging activities during evenings or when you feel the urge. Just a week, your habit should change. There are many other methods, which you can see through internet. The best method is what I suggested. Please try it without fail. Take care.

My ht is 168cm my wt 78kgs I am a smoker but not heavy every day I smoke 6 to 7 cigarettes I have normal diet.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

This extent of smoking for a diabetic is bad medicine, really. You have to stop smoking, but you must also want to stop. It is in the decision that much help and support to cease the habit, is going to be very potent. Nothing can happen if you don’t cooperate from wanting to quit. Diabetes will affect the heart, the kidneys, the eyes among many other organs and smoking will affect them directly leading to many complications. The worst I can think of is the damage to the kidneys. If that happens, you could be on dialysis, which is not only incorrigibly expensive but the whole process and frequency is very, very tedious. Please give this a serious thought and stop immediately and abruptly. It will be difficult but it is worth the effort. This knowledge and there are more frightful information that is astounding and scary. That information itself should help you stay out of it. The tobacco tar in cigarette smoke lines your lung with huge patches that make that portion dysfunctional. Your oxygen carrying capacity is jeopardized, and breathing is impinged. The nicotine in tobacco smoke stimulates the heart beat to raise the blood pressure in no time at all. And one of its effects is to affect the erectile capacity of your penis. There are more than 4000 harmful chemicals in cigarette smoke!!! Then you need to identify why you smoke: there is an oral need, the nicotine effect, the psychological effect of covering up some other issue, for style, to impress, etc. You may discover that the reasons may be unimportant at this stage because you have become too addicted and the habit has become compulsive. You should start exercises, gradually increasing it over a period of time. Do deep breathing exercises every time you feel like smoking (try Yoga), and replace the oral urge with some healthy food substitute to satiate the need, for a little while. If the urge is too strong, then use nicotine chewing gum or nicotine patches, for a little while until the smoking drive reduces, substantially. You may join Smokers Anonymous in your city where the support is really extraordinary for like-minded people who are also in the same situation. Keep yourself occupied or engaged with interesting activities during the times when it is most tempting. Keep the company of non-smokers for some time i.e. at least for the first 21 days. Above all, announce it to everyone that you have quit smoking. Here’s a piece of very good advice: even if you accidentally/willfully take a cigarette, it is not the end of the world – you can start the cessation all over again. 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.

Hello. Everyone goes through tough times at different points in their lives, and we all feel sad every now and then. It’s important to understand that feeling sad temporarily is very different from being depressed-or having depression. You’re lucky in a sense that your parents are providing you with this opportunity. I understand that it’s a challenge for you. However, think about all the rewards you’re going to reap in the future. But still if you feel like that you are not happy and feeling like depressed so do all these things 1.Exercise 2.Good eating habits (no sugar, for me sugar exacerbates depression for whatever reason) 3.Good sleeping habits 4.Sunlight 5.A break from routine 6.Therapy from any psychologist thank you.

Me and my girlfriend engage in oral sex often. Is oral sex good, Both in health and relationship way of concern.

Oral sex is just a alternative sexual experience other than natural vaginal sex. Oral sex is neither compulsory nor mandatory for a good relationship among sexual partners. It is personal choice hence it is neither good nor bad.

I'm 22 female. Suffering from lot of depression and I'm very skinny. For past two days there been no sleep so I took sleeping pills. For next two days I felt sleepy then 3rd day even after taken pills I'm awake. Pls help me I'm totally depressed.

Hello, if you are feeling severely depressed, your lack of sleep could be because of it. Sleep disturbances like lack or excess of sleep are a common and major symptom of depression. Sleeping pills is a temporary solution. It will not help if the cause of your sleep problem is depression, infact sleeping pills worsen depression. Antidepressants which promote healthy sleep will treat your insomnia as well as depression. For better sleep, follow some tips:- 1) make your room completely dark at night. 2) your room must be well ventilated. 3) a warm shower and head massage with oil before sleep time. 4) avoid tea/coffee after 5.00pm. Don't sleep in day. And don't use bed for eating /watching tv. Take care.

Hi my dear friend you are assuming things. Always think before you talk. I think there is a problem with your understanding things. Your interpretation of things are wrong. My friend act slowly but positively. I will prescribe you some flower remedy available in all homoeopathy shops. Mix 7 drops of cerato + 7 drops of gentian +7 drops of aspen + 7 drops of larch + 7 drops of star of bethlehem + 7 drops of schleranthus. Mix these with 50 ml water and take every 12 hours for 2 months. You have to develop confidence and strong will power in yourself. Ok do not worry. Everything will be all right.

I am 29 year old female .i am suffering from severe depression and anxiety from last 4 years. I have tried medicines and meditation but nothing works. My profession is such that I cannot takes medicines which are sedatives or put me into the sleep or slightest of delusion. What should I do. (i have gone through counselling and have met reputed doctors as well) .

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Except for being unable to take sedatives, you have tried everything almost. I am sure that you may be one of those who has done counseling for a brief and stuck to the medication. Now, that won't do: you must combine the two therapies simultaneously and in fact, continue with counseling more consistently to get good and productive results. Even so, kindly resort to the following recommendations and see what happens: Please visit these professionals along with your parents. In the meantime please do the following sincerely because you could resolve the problem better with good cooperation: Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber, nuts, avocado, exercise regularly, eat dark chocolate, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. I suggest you do the opposite of what this depression makes you feel like doing (actually, not doing): you will need to fight this condition. You must become active; stay upright during the daylight time; meet people; never sleep during the day, wake up by 6 am every day, play some active games, especially contact games, do physical exercises, talk to people and join some social clubs, attend Yoga classes etc. Watch sitcoms on TV or comedies and cheer yourself up. Go for excursions in groups, for outings, camps, conferences, and religious conventions. Get a pet dog and spend time training it, exercising it and relating to it. Expose yourself to some sunlight every day, at least, 30 minutes but not in the scorching heat. Whatever happens, please incorporate these three important adaptations in your life: always be responsible, be respectful, and be functional. If you did these three, lots of things will go well in life. Please pray and have faith in God to alleviate your sufferings. Don’t wait for others to help. Use your own motivation, which might be at its lowest, but persevere and win this battle. Above all to be really happy, you need to live in love and for love. Learn all about emotions and how to handle them and that will get you out of the depression rather easily and quickly. A counselor is there only to facilitate you, all the hard word must come from you, and your cooperation with that person is very critical for your success. Be positive every day and learn to be contented with what you have. Do some left brain exercises: it is the happy brain. Here are a few suggestions: shut your left nostril and breathe, move your eyes from right to left and vice versa for at least half a minute at a time, and do callisthenic exercises with some form of counting, regularly. Whatever happens please cooperate with the therapy and do not discontinue until the condition is completely resolved.

I can not read 5 minute with concentration. Many past thoughts such as what I do in the college what other has done comes to mind. Please help sir.

Psychologist, Hyderabad
Dear lybrate-user, try this method many people are success first and most sleep early wake up early at 4.0 AM and study with fresh mind, of course subjects which you are not interested you must spend more time and repeat it many times, "Practice makes Perfect" not only human including pets. Parrots are talking and dogs are dancing . Switch off mobile phone when you go to bed and switch it on at 6AM. Example some people they don't like Mathematics but it is essential for Life everyday and every time we are depended on Mathematics, Right from Doctor to business man, including vegetable seller, we can understand many other distraction disturbed minds It is like love issues. still not able to concentrate go for counselling help in person or audio/video. please give us feedback after trying for weekdays.

I have breathing problem during night. Most of the time it feels like I am not able to breathe at all and might die due to lack of oxygen. But actually I am breathing normally and it is just what I feel strongly in my mind which is actually causing me a problem. What should I do to avoid such suffocation feeling.

MBBS, MD - Psychiatry, CE (New York)
Psychiatrist, Delhi
Hi lybrate-user. It appears that you are having panic attacks. It is a common problem and mostly result from misinterpretation of normal bodily symptoms. One would need to understand your symptoms in more details. Like when it started, in what circumstances do you get these symptoms, any symptom in between the attack. Very effective treatment is available for these symptoms. Meet a nearby psychiatrist.

Internal depressive thoughts may cause for sleeplessness. Better to express your internal frustrated thoughts to your family members and friends. When burden of thoughts may come then your mind relaxed. Be friendly with others. Do not be alone. Feel always confident. Try to practise dynamic nature slowly it will come normal manner. Do not be sensitive. If you want you can change the total atmosphere. Be brave always. Feel always confidendent. Give positive suggestions to your mind. Better to take help of others in rush. Later slowly develop you alone cross the rush. Ok be confident do not feel depress. Ok best of luck.
