Hello sir I amjohn 24 year old I am facing ed problem since 5 year I am very depressed pls help me out this problem.
The word depressed is a common everyday word. People might say" i'm depressed" when in fact they mean" i'm fed up because i've had a row, or failed an exam, or lost my job" etc. These ups and downs of life are common and normal. Most people recover quite quickly. With true depression, you have a low mood and other symptoms each day for at least two weeks consult a psychiatrist and get evaluated. Your depression needs to be evaluated, if mild option is cbt, cognitive behavior therapy alone or along with medicines, if moderate both, if severe, medication s mainly and later cbt.

After 6 months if you develop these symptoms those are not medication side effects. Antidepressants usually get washed off in 4-8 weeks. Your present complaints are most likely due to recurrence of Depression, consult your psychiatrist for remedy.

Hello user I can tell you to deal with your bad thoughts but for another problem you have to consult any doctor r psychologist fro this. Controlling thoughts will just end up giving more importance to them. They will come back ten times stronger. Because at the level of the mind, what you resists, persists. Do not try to control thoughts without a tool. Breath is a very powerful tool. Doing Pranayam, Meditation, breathing in a specific rhythm will help in having a say over your mind and thoughts. Mostly unwanted thoughts come to you when your work load is less and idle time is more. The more we sit without any activity, the more thoughts come to us. Drink plenty of water, do yoga, gym, running, meditation, sports, listen to music, get creative, spend time with nature, develop a hobby and you will find bad thoughts will eventually subside. Watch your food habits and bowel moment, Include fresh fruits and vegetables. Spend time out in the sun. Check your Vitamin D and B12 levels. More importantly relax. Get old sleep. Stop excess use of gadgets or watching TV. Spend time out in the nature. Work/Study and do whatever that keeps you busy.

Though masturbation is a normal, healthy behavior, you seem to have compulsive masturbation and excessive sexual desire. There are medications to treat this.

Everything starts from me, he never do or say things that hurts me but sometimes when I get angry I use 2 take out all ma frustrations n anger @ him. I feel very guilty for all that I wana stop all this bt I just cant control my anger, it hs happened many times bt each time he excuses me n overlook ma mistakes. He is very very sweet. But few days ago in anger I said him things that I dint mean at all n he is so hurt that he dont talk 2 me nicely now. I cant see my relation gettin broken like this. I feel very bad. I appologised alot for that n tried 2 console him but he is very hurt. I love him very very mch I cant see him this way. I want our relation to be like before. Please help me soon. I dont wana looe him.

If you are angry, then you need to manage your anger and channelise it properly. You lose your temper on him because you know that he is sweet and will not retaliate back. This is called displacement of emotions. You need to take out your anger on the person with whom you are actually angry. Sort out your issues with that person. If you continue to behave like this, you might just lose him completely. When you are apologising, try to be genuine without giving justification of your actions. Listen to what he has to say. Give him time to accept your apology. Don' t expect everything to happen the way you want it to be. Counselling helps in assertive communications and mending broken relationships.

Hard Time Making Friends? These Tips Will Help You Initiate Friendship

Hard Time Making Friends? These Tips Will Help You Initiate Friendship

Friendship is the fuel that keeps life interesting. Imagine a robotic life where you do not have anyone with whom you can chill or unwind at the end of the day. Friends are people with whom you can be yourself without having to worry about needs and requirements or judgements, at least most of the time. They are the layer that lies between your family and the rest of the world and provide you with a balance of sorts as far as insights, outsider perspective, advice for meeting challenges and unadulterated enjoyment go. 

But many times, extreme shyness and an introvert nature can stop people from making friends easily. So how can you initiate friendships and keep them close? Here are a few tips!

  1. Understand Shyness: First of all, understand why you may be shy and how it makes your brain work. Shyness strips you of your security when you are faced with a new place or face. Also, it can lead to dismissive or avoidant behaviour, which keeps us from approaching people and learning more about them. Also, it keeps us anxious and preoccupied and makes us think that we will be met with rejection if we try to initiate friendship. Sounds vaguely familiar? Read on to know more.
  2. Eye Contact and First Impressions: The first way to initiate a new friendship is by making eye contact and following it up with a smile before the person in question averts his or her gaze. This is an unspoken language that is almost always answered similarly.
  3. Greeting: You can now approach the person and start by saying hello. It may be someone whom you have been seeing on your way to class or in the office cafeteria or even someone who lives in your building. So chances are, that this person would have noticed you too. Introduce yourself and ask for the person's name.
  4. Acknowledgement: Use the person's name often to show that you are acknowledging the friendship and ensuring that a bond begins to settle between the two of you from the word go. Offer to introduce this new friend to your other friends as further acknowledge of this new friendship.
  5. Information: In a new friendship, it is crucial to find common grounds without breaking the barriers of privacy. So ensure that you ask neutral questions about hobbies, family, education, work and other such issues without asking the when, where, what and how of things that might have to be explained by sharing personal details. In this way the person in front becomes more comfortable.

Be aware of the reasons that stop you and build your confidence when it comes to approaching people for friendship!

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.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. The duty of your mind is to think. If you are unable to control your mind, your mind will wander into negative territories which in tuen will give anxiety and stress. I suggest online counselling, life style changes and cognitive therapy. Feel free to contact me. Take care.

Dear, this problems is called hypochondriasis rather than ocd. You must be able to distinguish between mental disease and mental disorder. Your problem is a mental disorder. Not a mental disease. These mental disorders are usually treated with a combination of medicines and other means like awareness, meditation, psychotherapy techniques, life style changes etc. I think two or three counseling sessions and psycho therapy techniques should solve your problem. Let me know if you are willing to undergo counseling sessions and tailor made psycho therapy through mobile. Take care.

Its just an attitude problem. Due to high sebsitivity/emotional mind is the cause of all these expressions. Urs age also a bit significant to get easily excited. If you plan to follow few tips regularly without fail, then your all emotions will come under control. **try to follow regulary yoga **breathing exercises/pranayaama **meditation **try to go for art of living's sessions where thar sudarshana kriya would b thought is very effective in balancing mind&body equilibrium. **whenever you feel like you got hurt, try to grt engaged with friends r with your family members to get deviated from that incident. Or try to watch movie r with your favourite hobby, work whatever. But do not sit alone in that situation. Brooding will upset you more. *try to share everything (especially that bitter feelings) with your trusted one. That will reduce the intensity. If you want to cry. Cry alone in a room without hesitation.
