My age is 49 yrs, I am a patient of bipolar disorder. What medicines shall I need to take to come out of the depression ?

Dear , first of all I would like to know whether you are diagnosed as bipolar or you are just assuming. If you are diagnosed, then you must be taking medicines. Tell me what are those medicines. Then I shall tell you if you need anything more. Secondly, bipolar disorder is treated with psychotherapy and medicines together. I think two or three counseling sessions and psycho therapy techniques should help manage your problem. Let me know if you are willing to undergo counseling sessions and tailor made psycho therapy through mobile. Take care.

A relationship with a girl is not a quiz. Hugs, kisses, and sex may all come about int he course of a healthy relationship but you cannot earmark a certain behavior or time it out. To really keep a relationship strong you must respect each other and never use pressure to manipulate anything. There must be love, commitment, obligation, trust, respect, and mutuality in everything that is said and done. You seemed to be focused too much on the physical aspects and that itself is holding the wrong end of the stick. You see, we are into relations all throughout our lives. Yet, for the least of reasons, when it comes to marriage we are ready to throw in the towel. I am glad that you are seeking to know how to keep the relationship strong and healthy. Yes, communication is important. But there are two important considerations that matter a lot before you take the plunge (if you do that is): compatibility and adjustability. The former is almost a fixed aspect of both of you and it includes education, language, communication, community, caste, religion, socio-economic status, personality etc. The more the similarity, the better. The second consideration, that of adjustability, is more important and plays a very important role to determine whether your relationship will remain healthy or not. If compatibility is good, less adjustability is required. But as in most cases, there will be some disparity, and this will tax adjustability considerably. If you are not able or willing to adjust, all hell will break lose. This is what you must examine while you are courting each other. Is s/he willing to make the adjustment around you, and are you able to and willing to adjust for the sake of the relationship. If you know there are stark difficulties, then better to close that prospect. Everything involves some aspect of culture eventually: for example, she may be used to going out with her friends for drinks often. Now if you cannot adjust with this, then this will be a definite area of conflict. There are too many possibilities and this space will not suffice to give elaborate responses. Both of you will generally act positively before marriage but soon after the nuptials one or both of you will tend to control the other and there lies the danger. So it is very difficult to determine the true nature of an individual at the onset. But it is worth the try. So test everything to be fully satisfied, and this is best achieved by good and open communication. For your information, there are three areas that stand out as contributing to divorce: sex, in-laws, and finances. Discuss these areas and get to know the other’s mindset. Better to be safe than sorry. I have a very important suggestion to give you if you are looking for a strong relationship to culminate in marriage: please seek premarital counseling where many of these facts will be explained and taught to both of you if you get a qualified counselor to do it.

Dear lybrate user...Scientifically anxiety leads to weight gain and not weight loss. Anxiety or any kind of stress leads to elevation of blood cortisol and this hormone is responsible to increase weight particularly in the waist region of the body. What I perceive in your case is that you are not able to gain weight and this makes you feel anxious in social situations. Anxiety is a normal phenomenon and is essential to survive and take appropriate actions once situations demands, but it is the excess than the situation appropriate anxiety that is harmful and needs to be targeted. Neurobiologically excess of anxiety or stress leads to increase in the hormone cortisol and having high cortisol is not good for our body systems. High cortisol leads to high blood sugar level and in long rul may cause Diabetes Mellitus, Heart Attacks, Stroke and paralysis, Hypertension and many more. So managing stress in life is very essential for being healthy. Learning Stress Management in life will definitely help you. Be in touch for learning more stuff. Take care

Hello Doctor, I am facing some psychological issues for a long time now and I am unable to overcome it, I need some professional advice. Tall women, I like them and feel more attracted towards them. But, I feel intimidated when they around me at work, in public transport or any event and also in family and friends. It doesn't matter if I know them or not my confidence and self esteem are always low around them. I couldn't think straight when they are around and couldn't able to make eye contact while having a conversation with them. It affects my communication skills a lot as well as my productivity. I have tried not to let these things affect me but there's no improvement. Also I tend to compare myself with them and then I self-pity my self and blame god, society, my family, ultimately feel distressed. I am short you must have assessed it by now. Sometimes I feel women don't find me attractive because I am short or anyone who is short in today's generation. While Growing up we all must have heard that "Women like tall men or they find tall men attractive and they would like to settle down with a tall man" Growing up I thought and treated these sayings as a cliché but now I think this cliche has become a fact for me. Whenever I have interacted with a girl, they always put me in their friend circle or see me as their brother. I don't hit on every girl I see, I am not a pervert. Yeah I have liked few girls, but they didn't feel the same about me when I told them about my feelings and I am totally cool with it, I have no hard feelings for them. But the aftermath is, this made me feel like that I am not good enough. SO COULD YOU PLEASE OFFER SOME ADVICE ON HOW I COULD LIVE EFFICIENTLY WITHOUT LETTING THESE THINGS AFFECT ME. THANK YOU.

Many couples make strange bedfellows. In other words, not all attractions are suitable according to appearances and yours will also likely be the same. There is a 'chemistry' as they say, or there is something that clicks when you find your true mate, to some extent. Tall, dark, ahndso0me men are a hard to come by, but the personality of an individual is dependent on five areas: physical, emotional, intellectual, social and spiritual fitness. How you carry yourself is more important than your height and shape and size. Then the most important feature to find in someone is their character. By now you must have assessed that these are things that you can develop. You need to develop good and admirable character judged by your value system. Your physical fitness is primed by regular exercise and diet. You may, in addition, attend a personality development course, good conversation course, public speaking course, and a self-grooming course to really project yourself as a suitable and desirable candidate. Above all, you must be happy with yourself first. You may be falsely seeking tall girls as a projection of your need to be tall. So develop your overall personality and you will see girls flocking to be your​ friend!

Dear lybrate-user, the problem with alcohol is it gives too much desire and takes away the performance. If you are consuming daily, probably you are dependent on alcohol. You need to stop alcohol with the help of doctor and medicines. Your sex life will improve after that. Don't say that your friends are having sex after alcohol. Each one has different way of reacting to alcohol. This is your way. Your sex life will improve once you get married to your girl friend. Lot of things, like less time, urgency, guilt of making her pregnant, inferiority complex etc may be playing a role. All of them will improve once you get married. Don't worry - you are able to get erection, you are able to penetrate - these things show you are normal.

Get yourself thoroughly assessed by a neurologist to know if you need any medication to slow the disease progress. For your symptomatic treatment a regular excercise is must.

I am a smoker how I reduce smoking because I want to leave it but don't do it how I can?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Yes, you would want to leave it and not just reduce it. You have made a wonderful decision and it will affect you positively in the future for sure. But it is not easy because there is a lot of conditioning associated with it and these can be spread over the whole day and night!!! When you decide, it must be done immediately and abruptly. Waiting another day will jeopardize the decision. Since you want to do it I recommend that you seek the help of a counselor and do it with support. You need to identify with 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 vigorous 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. To help process all of the above and to get support, go for counseling and persevere with it until you are completely over it.

Everyday I am waking up in the morning or at dawn when suddenly I get awake with itchiness inside nose, sneezing,runny nose, and watery eyes. It happens mostly when I get awake late at night. If I use nasivion spray and take antihistamine (sinarest/Flucold) at its onset, it goes away. But again it happens next morning. Is it rhinitis and what over the counter drug will be good?

Codeine is an opiate and is addictive. When you try to leave it, there may be some withdrawal symptoms like agitation, anxiety, insomnia etc. Depending on the severity of the dependence, the withdrawal symptoms vary. You need to consult a doctor and treatment of withdrawal symptoms symptomatically. Cognitive behavioral therapy also could be used. Take care.

People will always have their opinion about you which will keep changing. So will your self esteem depend on their definition of you or your definition of what is good about you. Focus on what you are good at and create a definition which shows you in positive light. Do you like yourself at all? if you respect yourself, your husband will respect you. So what if you are dependant on him for money. He depends on you for running the house and taking care of his kids. Feel proud of yourself that you are pitching towards the responsibilities of marriage and doing your bit. And when he says that you are not good enough, then have these things ready to tell him. If you have the time, start earning something small to support yourself. Work gives money, respect, prestige and many connections with outside world. It helps to get noticed and appreciated by people who really mean it. Don' t depend on your husband to appreciate you. One day he will, when he sees the old you again. Click on private chat to consult me for counselling for relationship issues and low self esteem.

I am 21 year old and I am drug addict codeine syrup long time. what should I do?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist,
Codeine addiction is worsened by increasing tolerance levels for the drug. If you are having a serious addiction and you cannot quit its use, you will have to admit yourself to a rehabilitation center and go through their program for a complete recovery. This type of treatment is ideal because it takes you away from the influences of people and circumstances that you have gotten conditioned to and will make it easier in a different geographical location. When you come out of the center you must continue with addiction counseling for three years at least before being free of the enslavement. You will also need to attend na meetings regularly and get a lot of support from other users who are also recovering. You will need to make some lifestyle changes and work on the stress that is normally the reason most youngsters get addicted to codeine. There is also the oral issue, the rigid value system, the genetic factors, and the script issue that has to be worked upon with the counselor. You will need to start regular vigorous exercise, sleep well, and start on a healthy diet. You must follow a tight time schedule with interesting and productive activities. The counselor will also teach you new ways of finding joy without the use of chemicals. You should socialize with people, join new groups, attend conferences, meetings, seminars etc. To be involved with other important activities in your neighborhood. You will need to go for a thorough medical checkup and determine that there was no serious damage to your body because of the abuse.
