Perhaps it is time to shut down this business and start something else that is more promising. Not all businesses last long for various reasons. You do not have to think too much of your wife in all this. No doubt they are all upset with you for your failure but that discomfort should motivate you to push yourself to enter new business. You could talk to a business consultant familiar to your locality and business to instruct you whether you have to pump in more into the current business with some better strategies or change into a fresh venture. It is not right for your wife to show any attitude towards you, unless you are too stubborn. She needs to support you through thick and thin to get you back on your feet.

Ways to Deal With Obsessive Compulsive Disorder

Obsessive compulsive disorder (ocd) is a disorder that causes anxiety. It is also called as anxiety disorder. The main characteristics of this disorder are uncontrollable, unpleasant thoughts, which are continuing. Ocd causes the mind to get stuck on a specific thought or inclination. For instance, you may repeat a task forty times to ensure that it has been done properly. You will not be able to get it out of your mind. Ocd is characterized by obsessive thoughts and compulsive behavior patterns.

Some obsessive thoughts include:
1. The fear of being defiled by germs or soil and also of contaminating others.
2. The fear of losing control and hurting yourself or others.
3. Having sexual or brutal thoughts on the mind.
4. Extreme focus and devotion to religion and religious activities.
5. A sense of fear of losing or not having things you need.
6. Having the assumption that everything would go fine.
7. The person will become very superstitious.

Some compulsive behavior patterns include:
1. Inordinate double checking on things like locks, apparatuses and switches.
2. Over and over monitoring of friends and family to ensure they're safe.
3. Counting in the head, mumbling nonsense words without meaning.
4. Devoting a lot of time for washing and cleaning.
5. Praying without reason and taking part in religious ceremonies.
6. Accumulating junk material.

Here are some common ways to deal with ocd:
1. Regular exercise: exercise is the best natural remedy to prevent anxiety, which leads to ocd. Exercise checks your ocd symptoms. It makes your nerves stronger and hence you can focus your mind out of obsessive thoughts by yourself, when they arrive. Get at least thirty minutes of exercise regularly.

2. Connect with friends and family: social isolation is one of the common early symptoms of ocd. Social isolation can lead to ocd as well. Therefore, you must always stay connected to your friends and family so that you never get lonely and anti-social. Share everything with family.

3. Sleep sufficiently: lack of sleep or troubled sleep may lead to anxiety disorders. You need to sleep enough to be away from obsessive thoughts.

4. Perform relaxation techniques: simple practices like yoga, meditation, pranayama help you grow spiritually, relax your mind and keeps ocd away from you.

5. Tackle your fears: instead of avoiding fearful thoughts, let them flow and tackle them face to face. This will help you overcome the fear. Adopt measures so that you can focus on other things and ignore the obsessive thoughts. Distract yourself away from the obsession.

Ocd is a harmful disorder, and you should take all measures possible to keep away from it.

I am too angry person what can I do?

Shouting is a form of expression but if it is inappropriate you may cause more harm than good. You need to identify why you get so angry and throw this fit around as an expression. If this is a recent phenomenon, then it will be easy to identify what caused that disturbance and it can be sorted out. If it is from your childhood and you have suffered this reaction for a long time, then you will need to go back into childhood and find out what went wrong to make you so upset. Your parents will be able to help locate the cause. You can then go to a counselor and learn about anger management, which is not to control your anger but to learn to express it in appropriate ways. You must also examine yourself to see if you act angry whenever you are scared. This then means that you have chosen to escalate anger over your fear for some reason: it may have to do with feeling more powerful with anger than with fear or you may have received more attention by acting angry. Work on these issues and come out of this behavior through some counseling. Exercise is very good for you as it will expend the energy of anger out of your system and make anger more manageable.

Dear , I hope you are working. You should be able to understand the difference between depression and disappointment. Disappointment also brings on symptoms identical to depression. But these symptoms are short lived when compared to depression symptoms. Was there any deeply saddening or disappointing incidents in your life? is there any family problems? is there any job related stress or problems? let me know. Take care.

Dear lybrate-user, welcome to lybrate. The duty of your mind is to think. You cannot control your mind's thinking. Once you just leave your mind without diversion, it always end up in negative territory. But certainly you can divert your thinking. You can make your mind to be always positive by engaging in creative activities, hobbies, games and passionate towards whatever you do. Thereby you can reduce your stress and tension also. Once you can do this, loss of proper sleep and stress also can be made normal.

More so for teenagers because your nerves are just completing its total development and any substance abuse, like smoking, can lead to its permanent damage. Just don't even start because as teenagers, you are very vulnerable to the addictive effects of nicotine that you can become more easily enslaved to it. If you have started, then give it up soon.

Yes- cure is possible. The sooner you start treatment, soon you get relief. If SYMPTOMS ARE NO LONGER NORMAL OR TOUCHING UPON INSANITY, SEE A PSYCHIATRIST IMMEDIATELY. PSYCHIATRIST IS MBBS PLUS MD IN PSYCHIATRY- HE GIVES MEDICINES ONLY. TREATMENT STARTED EARLIER WILL CONTROL THE PROBLEM VERY FAST. Generally speaking, before starting medicines from a psychiatrist, it is advisable to get psycho-diagnostic testing done from a psychologist to determine what is the nature of symptoms- is it psychological –requiring counselling/psychotherapy or does the symptom require medicines from a psychiatrist. YOU MUST SEE A QUALIFIED AND TRAINED PSYCHOLOGIST FOR CORRECT DIAGNOSIS. MANY PEOPLE CALL THEMSELVES PSYCHOLOGIST, JUST AFTER A BA OR GRADUATION DEGREE IN PSYCHOLOGY, OR AFTER MA OR MASTERS IN PSYCHOLOGY. - A PhD in psychology is reqd. To qualify as doctor. Difference is same as you see MBBS doctor or MD doctor as a specialist for any illness. PSYCHOLOGIST IS AN EXPERT IN DIAGNOSIS BY PSYCHOLOGICAL TESTING AND COUNSELLING/PSYCHOTHERAPY I.E. TREATMENT WITHOUT MEDICINES. GET PROPER DIAGNOSIS FIRST FOLLOWED BY RIGHT TREATMENT. PLEASE GET DIAGNOSIS CONFIRMED FIRST THEN TAKE MEDICINES AS ADVISED. IT IS POSSIBLE THAT PROBLEM IS PSYCHOLOGICAL-THEN IT WILL NOT BE CURED BY MEDICINES. YOU WILL NEED PSYCHOTHERAPY.

Dear, at your age, memory problems like amnesia are not common. Many young people are having problems with memory. These problems are either they are too busy or due to anxiety and stress. Busy people use organizers or employ a personal assistant because they can't remember every task. You need to understand this. If you still say, you are having memory problems, we need to check your memory using memory test. If you want more of my help in this regard, please contact me. Take care.

We have 2 kids. The little one is 2 years old. My wife is 35. She is averse to any kind of foreplay. She does not like being touched or kissed on breast, on vagina, or on lips. She believes that all the above acts along with lip kissing are unhygienic. She does not allow oral sex. She seems least interested towards sex. She believes that having sex twice a week is too much. She still breastfeeds the little one. There are lot of arguments and quarrels on the above frequently. She feels that having sex twice a week is too much and that I am a maniac with regard to this.

Relax dear lybrate user. This happens in many families. Generally breast-feeding mothers have less hormone levels in their bodies which reduce their sexual desire. Once the breast milk stopped secretion they get thier menstrual cycle fully resumed and sexual hormones start functioning. In your case, the problem may be arising from various sources; 1. Due to stress caused by nursing two little kids. 2. Lack of knowledge of sexual intercourses. 3. Due to aversion caused by poor oral hygeine (e. G. Smoking, alcohol, tobaco chewing etc. If you have), 4. Due to the fear of infection to the child. 5. Some indian women possess an attitude that after having adequate children, sex should not be given that importance. My suggestions are; on your part 1. If you have such bad habits, make her believe that you have foreshaken all the habits that she dislikes. 2. If your wife enjoys direct penetration work without foreplays, while doing penetration, if you have patience, you can gently taste or kiss or whatever you want to do (without stopping hip movements), on her part she may be sex-educated by a counsellor. If she denies, you can provide her with a good book on healthy sexual practices available in the market, by a qualified sexologist.

I've depression particularly at nights. Within a gap of 15 days, I start getting unknown anxiety fears/attacks for no reason which start suddenly and depress me a lot. I'm struggling with this since >5 years. I've tried Homeopathy a year back" but it didn't help me much. I've now moved to allopathy since 6 months. I'm now taking Nexito 5 mg which my doctor prescribed. I was on Feliz S plus for 1 month and stopped which worked great. But, I'm still facing night fear episodes once in 15 days even after taking Nexito. I want this to be stopped as I'm unable to move out at nights as I'm worried about this panic attacks. Can anyone kindly help me about what to be done. I'm seriously suffering since many years. Please help.

Five years ago you were into your late teens and it is the final stage for you to resolve childhood issues and my suspicion is that you did not do that. Anyway it is still not too late. I think you are right about the possible depression, which is sadness based. The anxiety at night in particular is fear based and may cause you undue distress. The fear at night is expected because it is the time to retire and it can feel very lonely too. These emotions must be expressed, and ideally with a counselor. You may need to learn much about emotions too, and the counselor will meet that need too. First, visit the counselor and discuss your problem at length. If necessary take your parents and your entire developmental history from prenatal days till today. Also it would help if you took your family history from your grandparents onwards. The counselor will help identify the origins and give you a series of things to do. Once you work in tandem with the medication better outcomes are assured. Now cooperate with both of the therapies for the best results, for a substantially long time. Do not discontinue the counseling, if you are on medication. 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 scotching 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 too. Don’t wait for others to help. Use your own motivation, which might be at its lowest, but persevere and win this battle. You are young and you can do it with some commitment.
