One friend have homosexual interest want to marry can his interest change to females.Please tell.
Of course, it could change. However, he must want the change and with some therapy he could develop the natural tendency to love the members of the opposite sex. Have him visit a counselor or sexologist and explore this possibility.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. For sure you do not have any psychiatric disorder. Don't worry. Participation in new ventures and being involved in it should be purely based on experience and knowledge. When you acquire knowledge and experience automatically you will be able to start new ventures. Second aspect is your attitude. Keep your attitude positive. Don't let negative thoughts derail your attitude. I suggest online personality development counselling. Feel free to contact me. Take care.

I have two male children. 12 years complete and second one 6 years completed. They always arguing fighting. At least 5mints they are not leaving peacefully. What can I do. Pls help me. I have loss my patience about them. I am employee. They are in 8th and 2nd standard.

Hi there ~ this is a very common problem among siblings. However there are a couple of things that you could do to prevent arguments and fighting at home and live peacefully. Be strict with your kids and award them only when they do their tasks according to your satisfaction, while giving them tasks make sure you do not give them the same tasks. Also separately allot time for both kids and make sure your give time-outs (punishment in the form of isolation for 5 minutes) when they do not listen to you or follow your instructions. If you continue to have problems please visit with a child psychologist since your children may have hyperactivity issues. Hope this helps. Take care and have a lovely day!

Kleptomania is an impulse control disorder, but very often there is an underlying emotional disorder which triggers the problem. This requires evaluation of personality and understanding the underlying causes. The treatment is effective if the patient, relatives and therapist work as a team.

After ejaculation I am feeling very depressed, plzz give me some advice and medication.
It is only exhaustion which is a very very normal phenomena. It is due to the complete relaxation of your nervous, muscular and skeletal systems. You feel depressed because you may have learnt some false idea in your childhood from friends or cheap medias that masturbation/ejaculation leads to tiredness or depression which inturn creates a guilt feeling. In fact the feeling of relaxation and satisfaction can be enjoyed tremendously.

I just had breakup with my gf. From then I am feeling depressed and lost. please help me.
This is a hard time for you. Please tell yourself that these are all valid feelings. It is a loss for you and your mind will take its time to cope with the loss. Give yourself that tie and don't be in a rush. In the meanwhile, try to seek support from your closed ones, read stories of people who have suffered loses and what helped them come out of it, make healthy friendships, follow your interests etc. When gloom and grief takes you over, quickly remind yourself that these are normal feelings and it too shall pass. Nothing in the world is permanent. It would be a good idea to do lot of physical activity at this time. For further help you can contact me.

Dear Doctor, I was having gastro issue earlier and went to the endoscopy it's calm down now! Some times I use to have heartpalpication when am getting vomiting and nervousness, finally consult a cardiologist from mixture hospital Hyderabad. After his consultant he said. Not to worry this is because anxiety, for anxiety is that dangerous and related to Psychology. I was not getting sleep so doctor suggested to have TRIKA 0.5 mg, should I take this every day after food / do I take for long time! Please clear my doubts! Suggested medicine: Trika 0.5 tablet, is this tablet has a side effects! / not? Thank you all,

Trika 0.5 mg is alprazolam, which can be taken for short duration only, maximum 2 weeks. If anxiety requires treatment for long, kindly consult a psychiatrist, who will give better and more appropriate medications. Trika when taken on a longer run cam cause early dementia, shrinking of brain, memory loss, personality changes, withdrawal seizures, irriability and depression. So kindly avoid it, mostly people are made addicted to trika by cardiologist and physician who see the cardiac parameters and sleep and are unaware of the side effects it produces to the mind/ brain. All the best.

My wife is feeling frustrated due to apathetic attitude of her Bahu(daughter in law). She expects her to take care of her but she is a neutral lady,unless asked she does not act. What to do?

It is quite natural in our country this sort of role transfer build up a conflict. You need to counsel your wife to adapt as the time changes and you can encourage your bahu to takeup the responsibility of the household and cousel her too. Hopefully acceptance is ultimate answer for such an issue.

How to overcome forgetfulness? I have forgot about 50 p. C of what people say; what I had said, lessons, names and others also. Please give me some advice.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

Yes, this may be true because of your age and the stress of your depression. I suspect that you are going through a spurt in the production of the male sex hormone, which affects you in three ways quite unknown to you. First, there will be a sexual agenda that it will kick off, secondly, there will be aggressiveness and rebelliousness, and thirdly, you will suffer from acne and pimple problems. This is the effect of the hormone that has a duration of almost two years and you will have no control over it. But if you have a good value system you will tide over this phase without significant damage. The hormonal imbalances may not only impact your memory because of the chemical but also bring along some distractions that come with it. But you may work on the following even if the hormones kick in: 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 are 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 you and the family go for counseling too.

HI gaurav, See in your situation, if the girl you had sex with is not HIV infected you may not contract HIV but the only way to know whether you have or not is get yourself tested in 3 months time. Dont stress out so much. Have patience.

Is permanent cure of schizophrenia possible? If person stop medicine when he or she is normal and stable Is there is a chance to happen again?

MBBS, MD Psychiatry, DNB Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Nagpur
Schizophrenia is treatable disorder just like diabetes and any metabolic disease. It requires a course of medications initially to bring severe symptoms under control and then stabilise with lesser doses. A maintenance therapy of minimal dose might be required to prevent relapses. This maintenance therapy (in a patient who has successfully achieved remission of symptoms with regular medications) may range from 2-5 years. In about 1/3 rd cases of frequent relapses or severer symptoms maintenance therapy may be required for even a longer time.

I am smoking from last 12 years, my age is 30. I want to quit smoking for my better health. I tried quitting 2 times, once for 2 months and second time for 4 months in 2011. I definitely want to quit smoking and I want to consult a doctor before I start quit quitting. Please help me with your suggestions. I live in bangalore

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

You are doing well to want to quit. Having tried it already twice is what quitting smoking is all about: very rarely do people succeed in their first attempt. But persevere you must. When you decide, it must be done immediately and abruptly. Waiting another day will jeopardize the decision. Since you want to do it again this time I recommend that you seek the help of a counselor and do it with support. I guess you know all the harm cigarettes do to your system, which is why I suppose you are seeking to quit. But now 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 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? like you are doing now. You must persevere with the best support until you defeat this addiction.
