Dear Lybrate User, It is not clear how you came out of severe depression. If you were under some medication, then it is possible that these medicines have affected your sexual desire and erection. Please talk to your Doctor (who prescribed these medicines to you) about it. Since you have taken it probably only for a year there might not be any permanent damage. I would suggest - please talk to a Counsellor. Only medicines may work temporarily, in case of depression. But if you seek counselling help, you will be treating the root cause of your depression. You need to have regular counselling sessions. The Counselling sessions will help you to modify your thoughts so that you are out of depression and will have more self confidence. Many of the sexual problems are because of emotional issues and not any physical defects. Your present sexual problems might get resolved when you start feeling happy and confident. Please talk to a Counsellor at the earliest. Take care.

To be very frank, if you have the will there will be a way. Make up your mind and all other things will fall in place automatically. Stop making excuses and face the reality. Be honest to accept all your weaknesses and commit yourself to work sincerely. Give your best and keep improving on a daily basis. Don't under estimate yourself. Don't degrade your self esteem. Slowly and studily work upon your weak points and then you will pick up speed in no time and excel in what ever you do! have faith in your self!

I am 22 years old, I have been smoking cigarettes for the past 3 years and now I hav decided to quit smoking. I used to smoke at the most 2 cigarettes per day, but last week I went on trip with my friends and smoked about 30-40 cigarettes in 3 days. After the trip I felt so bad about myself that I decided to quit smoking once and for all, now I have smoked any cigarette in 4 days. But I came to know from internet that quiting suddenly will cause serious issues on neurotransmitters and on health. Please guide me with the situation and tell me if I need to take any special food to increase neurotransmitters.

Dear Lybrate user. You are not an addict to smoking. Over and above you are smoking for just three years, and that too two cigarettes per day. In this rate of smoking, quitting will never have any serious issues with neurotransmitters. Don't worry. I assure you no withdrawal symptoms of neurotransmitter problems. Quit smoking. Take care.

I am not able to concentrate I am feeling sleepy whole day what should I do please tell me it's my exam time.

Dear lybrate-user, try this method many people are success first and most sleep early wake up early at 4.0 am and study with fresh mind, of course subjects which you are not interested you must spend more time and repeat it many times" practice makes perfect" not only human including pets. Parrots are talking and dogs are dancing. Switch off mobile phone when you go to bed and switch it on at 6 am. Example some people they don't like mathematics but it is essential for life everyday and every time we are depended on mathematics, right from doctor to business man, including vegetable seller, we can understand many other distraction disturbed minds it is like love issues. Still not able to concentrate go for counselling help.

I think my problem is related to psychiatrist or psychologist - I m not sure. Need that clarity. For long, I have been finding myself dull, not interested in life or work. At times I don't remember what I discussed with someone or I have promised to do. I even tend to forget things, tasks. I don't find energy in myself to do something or initiate something other than my regular office job or mandatory things required to do at home. Though I try but I don't enjoy with people companies or with family if I go outside. Feels depressed from a long time now. Sometimes have a pain at back of neck where the head joins but not always. There is a history of last 7 years when I got married and in parallel I switched job. One. My wife was not able to align with my side of family and in all that jugglery it have me a lot of stress. Though I was hyper active in my life before marriage foreg doing gym, joining dance class, going parties, doing adventurous activities but suddenly everything came to stop as she was and is not interested in any playful activity nor she was ever supportive if I propose to do the same. It continuously added onto my stress and my physical health deteriorated. Though my wife situation with my side of family improved now but now I m not able to aggregate any energy to do outside fun activities. Romance and sex also was hardly present between us which also caused added stress and life is running as it is as if I m living for some reason that is our daughter. Two. My job switch at the same time. I moved from a big firm to a small family company at the same time. The environment was too demanding and the boss behavior was unbearable. It was all time shouting, screaming environment, a lot of micro management was done from his side - which caused me a lot of stress. Though I tried to leave the job many times - resigned 3 times - but he did not allowed me to leave and created an environment that I could not leave it. But it never improved the situation. He has been very active to track our cvs on all job sites and everytime used to show printouts of our cv and forced us to remove the profiles. Though I have been finally able to quit last year still jobless that time. But now my new job does not have that kind of environment. And I feel lot relieved. But that previous job has created such an impact on my mental status that I m still struggling with my mental strengths, energy levels, no concentration power, low remembrance and a lost will-power that I used to have in ample. (symptoms mentioned in 1st para). Looking for some guidance how to come back to a better life and get back my will power, concentration power, stamina, remembrance power and so a happy un- depressed life.

Dear, all the problems you have mentioned in your quesion is related to attitude and related mood. If your attitude is not right, everything you look into will present itself as dull. That includes your body. You are feeling dull because you are not properly looking into the eventualities. Positive thinking will help you a lot. I suggest you to consult a psychologist. Take care.

To increase your memory you should have mental calmness, for that sleep for at least 6 hours at night and do meditation daily. Eat nutritious and iron rich food and do some yoga daily. Daily set a goal that i have to study and learn this much and try to achieve that. Take homeopathic anacardium 200 , one dose daily for increasing memory power and better concentration.

The right way is to not bother about people, not chase them and run after them. Real people with real intentions will recognize your worth and stay with you and its them you need to cherish. Consult a psychologist to get counseling about how to proceed and go about in relationships and key to maintain it. Also, learn about faulty patterns if any which is occurring and causing you to lose people. You can consult me for same.

Hello lybrate-user- weight loss can be easily achieved by following some ayurvedic rules- a) go to bed before 10 pm and wake up early morning if you want to study. B) avoid fast foods and foods which are processed in nature. C) practice kapalbhati pranayam in the morning. D) have foods which have more fiber content. E) take evening meals before 7 pm and try not to take milk while going to bed. F) drink water before meals as it will decrease your food urge and will reduce your weight.

I really want to quit smoking but finding difficult I smoke 3 To 4 cigarettes does it harm too much what to do? Help.

M.Sc - Applied Psychology
Psychologist, Bangalore
If you want to quit smoking then you can definitely do it. It is important not to give in to craving while you are trying to quit. There will be intense craving which may not last for very long. If you can distract yourself by doing some exercise or yoga or any activity when craving is there, just after couple of mins the craving will go and you can then pat your back for not smoking. You can get in touch with a tobacco cessation clinic and seek their help if required.

I wanted to quit smoking for the past six months And I am taking nicotine gum but I am not able to quit it as if now any other way I can wait smoking?

MBBS, DPM
Psychiatrist, Bangalore
Dear lybrate-user, Congratulations for quitting smoking for past 6 months. Usually the craving for nicotine comes down in 6 month's time. The nicotine gum should be taken as per your need in the beginning. You need to gradually increase time between 2 gums. Please take long term, say 12 weeks or so. Along with that you need psychosocial help also to continuously motivating you. See if the following tips help you. Otherwise please come back with more details of your support system. When you stop suddenly, you may get withdrawal symptoms like restlessness, irritability, lack of concentration, increased hunger, sleep disturbance, headache, impatience, anxiety, depression, etc. If you have them please don’t get back to smoking, take nicotine gum or lozenge or patch. They are available in all medical shops. You don’t need a prescription from doctors. Use 2 mg gum if you smoke less than 25 cigarettes/day. Use 4 mg gum if you smoke more than 25 cigarettes/day. First 6 weeks, use 1 gum every 1 – 2 hours. Reduce it in week 7 – 9 to one gum every 2 – 4 hours. In week 10 – 12, reduce it further to 1 gum every 4 -8 hours. By 3 months, you will be able to stop both cigarettes and gum fully without any withdrawal symptoms. Please feel confident that you can do it and give yourself some gift for doing it like vacation or books or new mobile. Smoking is a chronic relapsing condition like diabetes and B.P. So please don’t worry if you restart smoking. Start all over again to stop. You will learn the situations that make you smoke and avoid them. Please think of health benefits and money saved often. Plan how to avoid relapsing situations, like smoking friends, along with alcohol, stressful feeling or depression. Delay, drink, deep breathe, distract and discuss are the helpful tips. Increase of non smoking zones, gift yourself for stopping smoking. Even chewing cinnamon may delay. Please remember that the urge to smoke comes and goes like waves. Delay and see whether it goes away. It will be like a passing cloud.

Dear , dreams are brain unconscious processes. You hardly have any control over them. Dreams could be related to past also. If you are able to explain your dream in detail, we will be able to do" dream analysis" and tell you what it means. To avoid dreams, you should work physically hard and sleep soundly. Take care.

It's a very comman problem. You need to practice at home with your friends, and go ahead. Just do it once and the fear will disappear. It's not a speech problem.

Are You a New Mommy - Know How You Can Beat the Stress!

It is common to go nuts when your newborn begins moaning! You'd need to have the nerves of a bomb-squad professional not to give it a chance to get to you. In any case, with a little experience, that is exactly what you'll create (or near it).

Likewise, don't accept that your baby is crying since she's genuinely tragic or upset. "It's anything but difficult to feel along these lines since that is the reason we cry. Nonetheless, newborn children do it to impart a wide range of things - that they're drained, icy, wet, exhausted, hungry, or overstimulated. Instead of stressing that something is truly wrong, consider crying her method for conversing with you." As you build up a routine with your baby, you'll slowly have the capacity to make sense of what she needs just by the sound of her cries.

Numerous new moms may feel overpowered and ponder:

Take comfort; numerous new moms feel a similar way. These worries are basic and superbly ordinary. You can find a way to deal with the stretch of being another mother.

  1. Rest: Get as much rest as you can, wherever and at whatever point you can. Rest when the baby dozes. Get a brisk rest in the traveler's seat amid an auto ride.

  2. Eat Healthy Foods: The right foods can give you more vitality. Do whatever it takes not to overburden on caffeine. Rather, eat healthy foods and drink lots of water.

  3. Work out: You might not have sufficient energy to do long workouts. In any case, even a couple of minutes here and there spread for the duration of the day can help you have more vitality! Take baby for a walk.

  4. Expect an influx of emotions: Absence of rest, included stretch and stress can abandon you having an inclination that you're on an exciting ride of emotions all around the same time. Relax because of realizing that you're not the only one! If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a gynaecologist.

Dear, you must be able to understand concentration, attention span, recollection and distraction. If you are able to watch a movie for two hours continuously, if you are able to play a game for an hour, then you do not have any concentration problems. You can't be attentive towards your studies because you are not interested in it. You are able to watch movie and play game because you are interested in it. Human cannot be attentive towards anything for more than 10 minutes. Then you should study in such a way that your attention is continued and make the subjects are interesting to you. Effective learning techniques should help you. Recollection depends on anxiety, stress and other physical and circumstantial factors. Distractions while studying are plentiful. You should be able to overcome distractions or avoid distractions. Please understand the above. Change your study style and attitude accordingly. Please post a private question to me and I will help you with" effective learning" techniques. Take care.
