I get dreams of murders, somebody chasing me with a knife 95% of the time. What can be the reason?

Dear , dream analysis is an area which is not approved scientifically. There could be many interpretations and all of them can be obtained on searching . But we, as we follow ethics, do not believe in interpretation of dreams because it has not been proved yet. Therefore, my sincere request to you will be, to not to think obsessively about your dreams. You are just 26. Exercise very hard and do many physical activities so that you get good dreamless sleep.

HI, Is there any medication that can stop my husband from abusing alcohol everyday.

MBBS, DPM

HI, Is there any medication that can stop my husband from abusing alcohol everyday.
Dear lybrate-user, Is he taking Disulfiram daily? Please check on that to make sure that he is taking it daily. Disulfiram causes aversion towards alcohol by giving unpleasant sensations if he drinks. He may be skipping disulfiram due to craving to drink and he does not know how to deal with it. If he has craving for alcohol, you need to give him costly anti craving drugs for at least 9 - 12 months. You need to help him motivate himself continuously and reward him if he reduces drinks or postpones drinking. If he gets any withdrawal symptoms, take the help of the doctor to help him out. It is challenging for him also. If you also join with him, you can face the challenge better. All the best.

I always have anxiety and fear. How to cure it naturally ?what should I try to include in my routine.
Hello Lybrate user Anxiety and fear are due to our overthinking and negative thinking about possible events in future. One can deal with it effectively by changing ones pattern of thinking. Try to evaluate situations positively and not overthink about personal or professional life. It might take a few months but can be treatable. Try maintaining a thought dairy and write about your worries and try to share it with someone close to look for positive ways for cope with it. Also try making regular exercise routine along with breathing exercises. For better management of the symptoms you can also consult a clinical psychologist.

Fever is not considered medically significant until body temperature is above 100.4 F (38 C). Fever serves as one of the body's natural defences against bacteria and viruses which cannot live at a higher temperatures. Also, the body's defence mechanisms seem to work more efficiently at a higher temperature -Fevers of 104 F (40 C) or higher may be dangerous and demand immediate treatments like: -Acetaminophen (dolo-650 mg) twice or thrice can be used to lower a fever . Aspirin should not be used for fever in children/ adolescents or during a viral illness. -Wear loose fitting clothes and don’t overdress. Overdressing can cause temperature to rise further. -Tepid water (85 F [30 C]) baths may help bring down a fever -The body should be cooled with a wet sponge. -A fever can cause severe dehydration. Drink plenty of fluids.. Have citrus fruits, particularly Vitamin C rich ones like mausami, Amla juice etc. -Take light and easily digestible home cooked meals .avoid outside food -Wash hands frequently with soap and water especially after returning from public places or public transport. -Further therapy depends on the cause of fever like urinary infection/typhoid or malaria/dengue infection and the accompanying symptoms that need to be investigated and treated accordingly

Hi lybrate-user! You need to change your life style completely at least to some extent to overcome this problem. You need to control your mind only then you can concentrate. You can actually undergo certain therapies to overcome this problem completely unless otherwise you volunteer to undergo treatment and counselling. If you need to consult with me online definitely you can. Take care.

Dear lybrate-user, From what you have mentioned, it seems that you are suffering from symptoms of Obsessive Compulsive disorder (OCD). OCD causes symptoms of repeated thoughts, in your case regarding contamination. It could also be doubts. Due to these thoughts, compulsive repeated behaviour results, in your case repeated cleaning and hand washing. In case of doubts, it could be repeated checking behaviour. OCD is a treatable condition. Medications and psychotherapy in form of exposure and response prevention will help you recover from all the symptoms. Please consult a psychiatrist and get yourself evaluated. Accordingly treatment can be initiated. I do hope that you recover completely. Best wishes.

Daily exercise of at least half an hour is a must. Even if you go to a gym, ask for aerobic and/or callisthenic exercises with whatever else you are doing. A healthy body harbors a healthy mind. With regard to memory, it is very important that your brain and body is ideally rested to be able to recall whatever is required, rather comfortably. Puzzles pose problems to the brain that help it to use new pathways and neurons, which give the brain considerable exercise. It taxes the left brain to use logic to solve the myriad possibilities which other activities do not stimulate. Crosswords are excellent for vocabulary learning and use. Jigsaws and Rubik cube stimulate different permutations to finally settle on the most likely one. Picture completion and anagrams help approach problem-solving from several angles. Do Sudoku, and memory co-relation activities and skills. Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber (whole grains, fruits and vegetables), nuts, avocado, eat dark chocolate, consume less of fat and use olive oil instead, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. You need to check out if you are stronger visual or auditory. The visual is a better mode than the auditory. However, if you combine the two modes, you will get the best concentration. Have a special place of learning, which should be well lit, with soft painted walls, well-ventilated, with no distractions. When you get bored, study by writing. If you repeat learning, at least, five to seven times, you will apparently remember for a longer time. Sit comfortably but do not slouch. The reading material should be of a fairly large print. Study at small intervals of about 40 minutes and then take a break or change the subject. Short-term memory is a faculty of the left brain, and long-term memory is a feature of the right brain. When people are stressed, they tend to favor the right brain and abandon the left brain, where short-term memory resides. So, it is really very simple: deal with the stress and activate left brain functions. Here are a few suggestions to activate left brain function: 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. There is a new exercise called Super Brain Yoga, which is done by holding the right earlobe with your left thumb and index finger, and the left earlobe with your right hand’s thumb and index finger. In this position, you must squat down and rise up and do this for five minutes every day. There is some memory enhancing techniques and study methods that your teacher will be able to guide you with. If your home life is full of distractions and stress, it is likely to affect your memory, adversely. In that case, I suggest that the family goes for counseling too. The following foods do help too: Blueberries, walnuts, turmeric, Spinach, tomatoes, broccoli, acorn squash, green tea, oily fish, boiled egg, turkey, apples, oatmeal, leafy greens, lentils, pumpkin seeds, avocado, cinnamon, thyme, sunflower seeds, and red wine. Avoid sugar and junk food. You may also include these noted foods that are good for your brain health: Brain-Friendly Foods MIND stands for Mediterranean-DASH Intervention for Neurodegenerative Delay. But the MIND approach “specifically includes foods and nutrients that medical literature and data show to be good for the brain, such as berries,” says Martha Clare Morris, ScD, director of nutrition and nutritional epidemiology at Rush University Medical Center. You eat things from these 10 food groups: •Green leafy vegetables (like spinach and salad greens): At least six servings a week •Other vegetables: At least one a day •Nuts: Five servings a week •Berries: Two or more servings a week •Beans: At least three servings a week •Whole grains: Three or more servings a day •Fish: Once a week •Poultry (like chicken or turkey): Two times a week •Olive oil: Use it as your main cooking oil. •Wine: One glass a day You avoid: •Red meat: Less than four servings a week •Butter and margarine: Less than a tablespoon daily •Cheese: Less than one serving a week •Pastries and sweets: Less than five servings a week •Fried or fast food: Less than one serving a week.

There is no fixed time per cigarrette... It may occur in 2 months and may not occur in 20 years.. Depends on individual. But once it will start, it will not give you a chance to correct your mistakes.

I have been ill for 6 months. I have not been doing any of my work because of headache, low mood, heaviness in head. I do not get up early in the morning. Helpless to speak or talk, weak memory, hopeless in life. I do not do my work. Only take food and go to bed or watch tv or search google etc. I gave up my job of teaching. I feel very helplessness to talk my family or others. I think I am useless and do not enjoy my life at all. I am married and I have a 4 years old daughter. It has happened 5 times before in 2006,2007,2010,2013 & 2014. After treatment I became cure every time within 3-4 months. But this time I have been taking medicines regularly but no improvement. Doctors say it is depression. But I am very hopeless this time. I do not understand what to do. Please help me.

It is depression and you need to combine medication with counseling for any long-term recovery. You need both counseling and medical intervention. The combination is ideal for the cure to be complete. In fact, counseling will need to go on for a long time to develop skills and techniques to cope with everyday challenges of your life. If you remain episode-free for three years at least, you can be weaned off of the medication. In the meantime please do the following that can be done all by yourself as you desire: You must be active and work towards your reformation. Many lifestyle changes need to be made to progress away for the condition. When you are depressed, you will feel lazy though I would like to call it lethargy. There is an inertia and lack of energy to even think, let alone act. You are required to literally do the opposite of what you feel like doing. Depression makes you want to withdraw, lie down, sleep, become lethargic, slow down, make you too lazy to even think etc. So when I suggested doing the opposite, you will need to fight this disease. 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, eat more of proteins and vegetables, 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 things, 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. If you are young and you can do it with some commitment. The doctor and counselor are there only to facilitate you, all the hard word must come from you, and your cooperation with them is very critical for your success.

I have been in a few relationships in the past but I wasn't really in love with anyone. But this relationship changed everything. It showed me all the sides of me that I hadn't seen before. I was a lot more attached, emotional, caring, concerned and most of all patient. I just feel that I've finally found someone I can land with. But since I have been in relationships before and I got over them pretty easily, my partner doesn't trust me and when he broke off I am completely devastated, in a way I have never been before. He says that my basic nature was being carefree and not attached to anyone. And what I am feeling is not real. But I don't think that. I think what I am feeling right now is actually real because breaking up and making up has been going on since a few months in this relationship. And I'm still unable to accept it. In the past, when the break ups occurred I could easily cope up with them in a day or two. So what I am asking here is can a person really change in such a way? And Can I be trusted for loyalty and everything even I've had relationships. I'm completely and entirely loyal to this particular person. I was pretty social nd materialistic before and and now I'm so much more comfortable being what I am now. I don't seek validation from others anymore and feel a lot more matured. Can people change really change the way I have? And also, how can I build up my credibility as a loyal person?

YOu have to be just what you are and credibility will be gained by your sincere dealings. If this guy cannot accept you as you are, relax and you will get a person who suits you well. Just be calm and patient and do meditaion.
