Dear lybrate user. I can understand. Heroine addiction comes under SUBSTANCE ABUSE AND ADDICTION. Deaddiction treatment is best suited for such addictions. Medically assisted drug detoxification or alcohol detoxification alone is ineffective as a treatment for addiction. The National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) recommends detoxification followed by both medication (where applicable) and behavioral therapy, followed by relapse prevention.

I am 26 years old. My hairs are turning into grays since 2010. I tried mahabhrungraj oil for 3 months but it couldn't help. I wants to stop the graying of hairs. So please suggest some remedy. It is possible to turn the grays into black again? If yes then how? Does oil massage for 6 to 8 months make any effect? I heard that Eating black sesame seeds will help to turn greys black again? Is it true? Please help. I never smoke. I am a vegetarian. I don't eat salty or fast food. But from past few years I usually sleeps at late nights. Please help.

Hi there ~ trying the remedies that you suggest might be helpful, however if stress and lack of sleep/sleep cycle difficulties is the cause then book an appointment with me so that I can try to help with medications. I am glad you do not smoke as it can add to early graying and being vegetarian has nothing to do with premature graying. Using over the counter multivitamin multimineral medications may be helpful and I can suggest some as well. I hope this helps. Take care and have a lovely day! sincerely

Pimples are not caused by heat. They are called Acne.Acne is the common cause of spots. Most people with acne are aged between 12 and 25 but some older and younger people are affected. Boys are more commonly affected than girls. Acne usually affects the face but may also affect the back, neck and chest. The severity can range from mild to severe. About 8 in 10 teenagers develop some degree of acne. Often it is mild. However, it is estimated that about 3 in 10 teenagers have acne bad enough to need treatment to prevent scarring. Untreated acne usually lasts about 4-5 years before settling. However, it can last for many years in some cases. This is due to the hormonal changes of puberty which stimulate the sebaceous glands. As a rule, the more sebum that you make, the more greasy your skin feels and the worse acne is likely to be

Hello Doctor, Am Sasi. Am 27 year old girl. Am divorced girl. My ex husband has bipolar disorder. So we could not run our life peacefully. Now my problem is my life. During divorce process, I came separately and I run my life in hostel, also am working girl. My parents can't keep me in their home because of family status issues. I had understand their situation and I started my life with my career. Dueto my official transfer I had to move some other place. I met one person that place. I got inspired by his career attitude. Because that time my only one support is my job. He guided me very well without any expectation. He want me as a good professional girl. But the fact is I fall love with him. He too divorced. But he has a daughter. He loves her most. We shared our life each other. I felt he is very comfortable person in my life. I proposed him. He shared his previous divorce life. He told some reason why he got divorce. After apply his divorce, he come to know he is going to have a baby. But he do not want his wife in his life. Somehow he got his divorce also, he shared about his love. He loved one girl after his divorce truly. She used him financially. She left him. But He didn't forget her still. They both lived living together life 2 years I think so. She got married with high rich person. Then due to his official transfer he came to my place. He hated his ex wife very badly. But his ex wife getting nice money from him by the reason of daughter. He never say no to his daughter for anything. Then I ask him to get his daughter from his ex wife and I ask him to take care of his daughter. But she is 7 year kid. She can't come out from her mother. In between he started to like me. He got possessiveness on me. We both feel hostel life is bored. No proper food. He suffered a lot. He gave a nick name to me that am his" food angel" I can't see his sufferings. If he feel bad, automatically I helped him. Then I come to know about hi divorce cancellation. One day he received phone call from his ex wife family that his brother in law died. So his daughter got severe fever. That kid started to ask abt her father. He went their place and attended funeral. His daughter got scare of everything he stained his daughter place 3 days. All are asked him to cancel his divorce for his daughter. But his ex wifr not willing to cancel the divorce. Every family member advised her and made her to take cancel the divorce. This issue I come to know later from him. Because he knows how am loving him. I feel my extreme true love in him. I prepared myself to live his memories. I just want to be with him. Meanwhile we had physical contact with hearty relationship. Then when we both in hotel he told his divorce cancel process. I cried a lot. He told" sasi I want you in gd position. My daughter life is too important. You don't know the pain of divorce cancellation. I do not't want to see that women face. But I sacrifices my life for my daughter. You have a age, you can marry anyone as years wish. This is a life time commitment. I really do not want any additional commitment in my life. Am having enough of problem. But I keep on cry. Because I do not want to leave him. Then I feel I want to be with him as much possible. We had discussed about living together life. He told that" living together life is good but when we separate it ll hurt very bad" then he said ok for taking home and all. After divorce process also he stained with me only. He did't bring his family to his place. We started our life very peacefully. He always make aware of about people mentality. Bcoz I do not have such gd knowledge abt people mindset. He taught me everything. We both lived like a skin and nail. He started to love me a lot. Effect is I got pregnancy because of him. But my divorce was still ongoing process that time. Then he advised me to abort baby because of legal issues. I don't know what to do. Doctor advised me to continue my pregnancy for avoid future problems. But I listened to him. I feel very bad after my abortion. Still am guilty feel. I crushed my baby. Then he got official transfer he moved some other place. My parents want me in home for sometime. So I had resigned my job and went to native place. But I and him had a big question mark that what to do next in life. I informed my parents that am loving this person. But they did't agree. Suddenly his dad hot heart attack. He asked some money from me. Really he feel bad that I was not with him in his difficult situations. He told the same thing that, sasi I want you to be with me, I could not face anything without years moral support. Then after 1 month back he ask me to come to his place for marriage. We know this is illegal marriage. But he do not want his wife and I do not want anyone except him. Suddenly some misunderstanding happen between us. He scolded me a lot. But I had compromised with him. At one point I left my family for him. Before my arrival he tod that" sasi our relationship is not legal. So we should take care of some limits. But my love feel does not allow me to think anything. I just want him in my life. I came over ther. His dad want to stay with him. So I can't saty his home. So I took a hostel room temporary. He took me to his home and I stained over there for 10 days. He put leave to his office. He introduced me as a wife to his owner. Then because of his parents arrival I came back to hostel. Then again he ask me to come to his home and I stained over there. Then due to my official reason I had to move some other place for 1 month. We received one hardable news from his wife that, his daughter got sexual abuse. He immediately arrived her place and tried to solve the problem. Here, I feel uncomfortable to stay in hostel. But his permanent official transfer came. He informed his owner that he is going to vacate his home. But I asked him that I want to stay over there. He said ok to me. But he took his all things to his native. When I reach his home nothing is there except few cloths and things. He msged only one thing to me. Life will move hard as much we think. Try to save yourself. I try to be with you. My daughter suffering unwanted issue. I ll come to you soon. I understand his position. I stained very calm. But I missed him a lot. My msges made him uncomfortable. He started to feel bad abt me. At one point he msged to my mom that, I was torchering him my msges, she never ever understood his position" My parents came to my place and wantely made me return back to home. But here all are asking about him. My parents informed to everyone tha I got 2nd marriage. Now my parents giving me torcher like anything. Am suffering a lot. I want to get rid of from this home. Each and everything they are scolding me. But still can't hate him. I want my baby from him. I can not imagine anyone instead of him. Even he knows my mindset. I want to see his happiness again. He feel I did not treat him normal way. Whatever problem he has that is one part. But he forgot about my life. He did not spoke to me well when I was his home. Actually now he do not want me. His mind full of his daughter. I did not oppose his love on his daughter. But he forgot abt my life. Doctor I want him back. If I go there I do not know how he ll react to me.(i think definitely he ll react bad manner). But other point of chance is he ll accept me. He got permanent official place. Now he is staying in hostel only. Because his family stained other state. So due to language problem they never come his place. He used to visit them yearly once or twice. Now my only wish is I want baby from him. I can take care of my self and baby and if he wish I can take care of him also. Please advise me how to solve this problem smooth manner.

It seems more and more like a one-sided wish. You have to grow out of this obsession to have a baby from him. It is because of this that you can make him take advantage of you. In such a relationship and for that matter in any relationship it must be reciprocal i.e. both must have love and respect for each other, mutually. If it is true that because of his daughter he is taking these steps then you must respect that and not disturb it. Whatever the reason and however much you love him, his priorities are very different from yours and they do not match up. It is too complicated, and I would not advise you doing something that might jeopardize his marital situation, whether he claims he loves her or his daughter or not. The fact is that he is not willing to take a brave step towards you. So, as difficult as it may seem, please leave this man and find another more deserving and someone more committed to you: otherwise I am afraid you are repeating your problems all over again.

Lybrate-user, hope you are depressed and full of anxiety disorder. Try to defend it by your positive thoughts. Time will solve, do not be suppressed, be bold and brave to go ahead. When you are going to br filled up with your mind with negative mind discard it saying I am potent and matters not good and burden to me. So and so it will turn into positive. Ok.

Dear, planophobia is a common disorder and many people overcome it with flying experience. You need desensitization therapy. I think two or more health related counseling should clear your problem. Please let me know if you are willing for telephonic counseling. Take care.

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.

If it is only a loud sound that makes you shaky for few minutes. Then there is no need to worry about it. But if you are having anxiety apart from such situations also then we need to evaluate your problem.

Anxiety disorders are a category of mental disorders characterized by feelings of anxiety and fear, where anxiety is a worry about future events and fear is a reaction to current events. These feelings may cause physical symptoms, such as a racing heart and shakiness. There are a number of anxiety disorders: including generalized anxiety disorder, a specific phobia, social anxiety disorder, separation anxiety disorder, agoraphobia, and panic disorder among others. While each has its own characteristics and symptoms, they all include symptoms of anxiety. I need to know more about your anxiety so that I will be able to diagnose it properly and provide you tips to overcome and manage your anxiety.. Take care.
