I am a 26 Years Old working in a MNC, I have an affair with a 37 years old lady, though being into a relationship from past 8 years to a girl with whom I am ready to get settled but I am not able to move on from that lady, she is honest and caring, when I met her ,she already had an EMA and when I proposed her after few months of our friendship, she told me about her EMA but I kept on approaching her, seeing me depress, she started meeting me and soon these meetings resulted in intimacy followed by affair, after few months I requested her to end up with that EMA (about whom she told earlier) ,she even tried but was not able to move out of it, now whenever I ask her, she simply remains neutral and I get hurted with it. What shall I do? I really feel messed up into all these and not able to identify right or wrong. Please help.

In life love, passion and lust have thin boundaries. As long as it is a consensual sex between 2 consenting adults then it is medically not wrong. But different societies, and culture promote monogamy as the way of life and consider these events as ethically wrong. Whether this is right, varies between individual perception according to their own brought up, cultural values, and knowledge. What is right for one is wrong for another. So don't make life complicated and live as it comes. Enjoy life without making others or yourself unhappy.

I lost somebody close last year and feel depressed since then I keep all the things ti myself only. please help me.
What you are going through is greaving. Loosing loved one is not easy to deal with emotionally. I am sorry for your loss. There are few things I would like you to try. 1. When you feel sad. Feel the feeling of sadness fully. You may close your eyes and let that sadness flow through your mind and body. If tears flow let them flow. Cry it out. Feeling what you feel fully and totally is healing. Once you feel your sadness fully. You might feel the lightness in your heart. Feel that too and say out loud. How wonderful! and engage your mind remembering some good qualities and good times you spent with the person you are missing. 2. Regular simple breath awareness meditation also help manage your loss. 3. You may also l write daily 3 to 5 things you are grateful to every morning. These things could be as simple as having a bed to sleep and food to eat. Affirm what you write and add new thing in your list for 7 to10 days. Along wit this engaging yourself in some kind of physical exercise such as walking or yoga. 5. Engaging yourself with something like reading, listening to good upbeat music, gardening will also help you feel little lighter. 6. You may decide to go out and help someone in need. Rendon act of kindness has been proven helpful in both greaving process and depression. Sometimes long lasting grieving may convert into depression and you need external. Support to cope up and build resilience. Hope this helps wishing you very best.

Hi there ~ Coping with Grief and Loss Losing someone or something you love or care deeply about is very painful. You may experience all kinds of difficult emotions and it may feel like the pain and sadness you're experiencing will never let up. These are normal reactions to a significant loss. But while there is no right or wrong way to grieve, there are healthy ways to cope with the pain that, in time, can renew you and permit you to move on. What is grief? Grief is a natural response to loss. It’s the emotional suffering you feel when something or someone you love is taken away. The more significant the loss, the more intense the grief will be. You may associate grief with the death of a loved one—which is often the cause of the most intense type of grief—but any loss can cause grief, including: Divorce or relationship breakup Loss of health Losing a job Loss of financial stability A miscarriage Retirement Death of a pet Loss of a cherished dream A loved one’s serious illness Loss of a friendship Loss of safety after a trauma Selling the family home The more significant the loss, the more intense the grief. However, even subtle losses can lead to grief. For example, you might experience grief after moving away from home, graduating from college, changing jobs, selling your family home, or retiring from a career you loved. Everyone grieves differently Grieving is a personal and highly individual experience. How you grieve depends on many factors, including your personality and coping style, your life experience, your faith, and the nature of the loss. The grieving process takes time. Healing happens gradually; it can’t be forced or hurried—and there is no “normal” timetable for grieving. Some people start to feel better in weeks or months. For others, the grieving process is measured in years. Whatever your grief experience, it’s important to be patient with yourself and allow the process to naturally unfold. Myths and facts about grief MYTH: The pain will go away faster if you ignore it. Fact: Trying to ignore your pain or keep it from surfacing will only make it worse in the long run. For real healing it is necessary to face your grief and actively deal with it. MYTH: It’s important to be “be strong” in the face of loss. Fact: Feeling sad, frightened, or lonely is a normal reaction to loss. Crying doesn’t mean you are weak. You don’t need to “protect” your family or friends by putting on a brave front. Showing your true feelings can help them and you. MYTH: If you don’t cry, it means you aren’t sorry about the loss. Fact: Crying is a normal response to sadness, but it’s not the only one. Those who don’t cry may feel the pain just as deeply as others. They may simply have other ways of showing it. MYTH: Grief should last about a year. Fact: There is no right or wrong time frame for grieving. How long it takes can differ from person to person. Source: Center for Grief and Healing Are there stages of grief? In 1969, psychiatrist Elisabeth Kübler-Ross introduced what became known as the “five stages of grief.” These stages of grief were based on her studies of the feelings of patients facing terminal illness, but many people have generalized them to other types of negative life changes and losses, such as the death of a loved one or a break-up. The five stages of grief: Denial: “This can’t be happening to me.” Anger: “Why is this happening? Who is to blame?” Bargaining: “Make this not happen, and in return I will ____.” Depression: “I’m too sad to do anything.” Acceptance: “I’m at peace with what happened.” If you are experiencing any of these emotions following a loss, it may help to know that your reaction is natural and that you’ll heal in time. However, not everyone who grieves goes through all of these stages—and that’s okay. Contrary to popular belief, you do not have to go through each stage in order to heal. In fact, some people resolve their grief without going through any of these stages. And if you do go through these stages of grief, you probably won’t experience them in a neat, sequential order, so don’t worry about what you “should” be feeling or which stage you’re supposed to be in. Kübler-Ross herself never intended for these stages to be a rigid framework that applies to everyone who mourns. In her last book before her death in 2004, she said of the five stages of grief: “They were never meant to help tuck messy emotions into neat packages. They are responses to loss that many people have, but there is not a typical response to loss, as there is no typical loss. Our grieving is as individual as our lives.” Grief can be a roller coaster Instead of a series of stages, we might also think of the grieving process as a roller coaster, full of ups and downs, highs and lows. Like many roller coasters, the ride tends to be rougher in the beginning, the lows may be deeper and longer. The difficult periods should become less intense and shorter as time goes by, but it takes time to work through a loss. Even years after a loss, especially at special events such as a family wedding or the birth of a child, we may still experience a strong sense of grief. Source: Hospice Foundation of America Common symptoms of grief While loss affects people in different ways, many experience the following symptoms when they’re grieving. Just remember that almost anything that you experience in the early stages of grief is normal—including feeling like you’re going crazy, feeling like you’re in a bad dream, or questioning your religious beliefs. Shock and disbelief – Right after a loss, it can be hard to accept what happened. You may feel numb, have trouble believing that the loss really happened, or even deny the truth. If someone you love has died, you may keep expecting him or her to show up, even though you know he or she is gone. Sadness – Profound sadness is probably the most universally experienced symptom of grief. You may have feelings of emptiness, despair, yearning, or deep loneliness. You may also cry a lot or feel emotionally unstable. Guilt – You may regret or feel guilty about things you did or didn’t say or do. You may also feel guilty about certain feelings (e.g. Feeling relieved when the person died after a long, difficult illness). After a death, you may even feel guilty for not doing something to prevent the death, even if there was nothing more you could have done. Anger – Even if the loss was nobody’s fault, you may feel angry and resentful. If you lost a loved one, you may be angry with yourself, God, the doctors, or even the person who died for abandoning you. You may feel the need to blame someone for the injustice that was done to you. Fear – A significant loss can trigger a host of worries and fears. You may feel anxious, helpless, or insecure. You may even have panic attacks. The death of a loved one can trigger fears about your own mortality, of facing life without that person, or the responsibilities you now face alone. Physical symptoms – We often think of grief as a strictly emotional process, but grief often involves physical problems, including fatigue, nausea, lowered immunity, weight loss or weight gain, aches and pains, and insomnia. Coping with grief and loss tip 1: Get support The single most important factor in healing from loss is having the support of other people. Even if you aren’t comfortable talking about your feelings under normal circumstances, it’s important to express them when you’re grieving. Sharing your loss makes the burden of grief easier to carry. Wherever the support comes from, accept it and do not grieve alone. Connecting to others will help you heal. Finding support after a loss Turn to friends and family members – Now is the time to lean on the people who care about you, even if you take pride in being strong and self-sufficient. Draw loved ones close, rather than avoiding them, and accept the assistance that’s offered. Oftentimes, people want to help but don’t know how, so tell them what you need—whether it’s a shoulder to cry on or help with funeral arrangements. Draw comfort from your faith – If you follow a religious tradition, embrace the comfort its mourning rituals can provide. Spiritual activities that are meaningful to you—such as praying, meditating, or going to church—can offer solace. If you’re questioning your faith in the wake of the loss, talk to a clergy member or others in your religious community. Join a support group – Grief can feel very lonely, even when you have loved ones around. Sharing your sorrow with others who have experienced similar losses can help. To find a bereavement support group in your area, contact local hospitals, hospices, funeral homes, and counseling centers. Talk to a therapist or grief counselor – If your grief feels like too much to bear, call a mental health professional with experience in grief counseling. An experienced therapist can help you work through intense emotions and overcome obstacles to your grieving. Coping with grief and loss tip 2: Take care of yourself When you’re grieving, it’s more important than ever to take care of yourself. The stress of a major loss can quickly deplete your energy and emotional reserves. Looking after your physical and emotional needs will help you get through this difficult time. Face your feelings. You can try to suppress your grief, but you can’t avoid it forever. In order to heal, you have to acknowledge the pain. Trying to avoid feelings of sadness and loss only prolongs the grieving process. Unresolved grief can also lead to complications such as depression, anxiety, substance abuse, and health problems. Express your feelings in a tangible or creative way. Write about your loss in a journal. If you’ve lost a loved one, write a letter saying the things you never got to say; make a scrapbook or photo album celebrating the person’s life; or get involved in a cause or organization that was important to him or her. Look after your physical health. The mind and body are connected. When you feel good physically, you’ll also feel better emotionally. Combat stress and fatigue by getting enough sleep, eating right, and exercising. Don’t use alcohol or drugs to numb the pain of grief or lift your mood artificially. Don’t let anyone tell you how to feel, and don’t tell yourself how to feel either. Your grief is your own, and no one else can tell you when it’s time to “move on” or “get over it.” Let yourself feel whatever you feel without embarrassment or judgment. It’s okay to be angry, to yell at the heavens, to cry or not to cry. It’s also okay to laugh, to find moments of joy, and to let go when you’re ready. Plan ahead for grief “triggers.” Anniversaries, holidays, and milestones can reawaken memories and feelings. Be prepared for an emotional wallop, and know that it’s completely normal. If you’re sharing a holiday or lifecycle event with other relatives, talk to them ahead of time about their expectations and agree on strategies to honor the person you loved. Using social media for support Memorial pages on Facebook and other social media sites have become popular ways to inform a wide audience of a loved one’s passing and to reach out for support. As well as allowing you to impart practical information, such as funeral plans, these pages allow friends and loved ones to post their own tributes or condolences. Reading such messages can often provide some comfort for those grieving the loss. Of course, posting sensitive content on social media has its risks as well. Memorial pages are often open to anyone with a Facebook account. This may encourage people who hardly knew the deceased to post well-meaning but inappropriate comments or advice. Worse, memorial pages can also attract internet trolls. There have been many well-publicized cases of strangers posting cruel or abusive messages on Facebook memorial pages. To gain some protection, you can opt to create a closed group on Facebook rather than a public page, which means people have to be approved by a group member before they can access the memorial. It’s also important to remember that while social media can be a useful tool for reaching out to others, it can’t replace the face-to-face connection and support you need at this time. When grief doesn’t go away It’s normal to feel sad, numb, or angry following a loss. But as time passes, these emotions should become less intense as you accept the loss and start to move forward. If you aren’t feeling better over time, or your grief is getting worse, it may be a sign that your grief has developed into a more serious problem, such as complicated grief or major depression. Complicated grief The sadness of losing someone you love never goes away completely, but it shouldn’t remain center stage. If the pain of the loss is so constant and severe that it keeps you from resuming your life, you may be suffering from a condition known as complicated grief. Complicated grief is like being stuck in an intense state of mourning. You may have trouble accepting the death long after it has occurred or be so preoccupied with the person who died that it disrupts your daily routine and undermines your other relationships. Symptoms of complicated grief include: Intense longing and yearning for the deceased Intrusive thoughts or images of your loved one Denial of the death or sense of disbelief Imagining that your loved one is alive Searching for the person in familiar places Avoiding things that remind you of your loved one Extreme anger or bitterness over the loss Feeling that life is empty or meaningless The difference between grief and depression Distinguishing between grief and clinical depression isn’t always easy as they share many symptoms, but there are ways to tell the difference. Remember, grief can be a roller coaster. It involves a wide variety of emotions and a mix of good and bad days. Even when you’re in the middle of the grieving process, you will have moments of pleasure or happiness. With depression, on the other hand, the feelings of emptiness and despair are constant. Other symptoms that suggest depression, not just grief: Intense, pervasive sense of guilt Thoughts of suicide or a preoccupation with dying Feelings of hopelessness or worthlessness Slow speech and body movements Inability to function at work, home, and/or school Seeing or hearing things that aren’t there Can antidepressants help grief? As a general rule, normal grief does not warrant the use of antidepressants. While medication may relieve some of the symptoms of grief, it cannot treat the cause, which is the loss itself. Furthermore, by numbing the pain that must be worked through eventually, antidepressants delay the mourning process. When to seek professional help for grief If you recognize any of the above symptoms of complicated grief or clinical depression, talk to a mental health professional right away. Left untreated, complicated grief and depression can lead to significant emotional damage, life-threatening health problems, and even suicide. But treatment can help you get better. Contact a grief counselor or professional therapist if you: Feel like life isn’t worth living Wish you had died with your loved one Blame yourself for the loss or for failing to prevent it Feel numb and disconnected from others for more than a few weeks Are having difficulty trusting others since your loss Are unable to perform your normal daily activities I hope this helps.

I have a habit of smoking. I want to quit it. Do I need any medicine to stop smoking?

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Kolkata
Many a times clients make up their mind only to loose motivation midway. Make sure you don't do the same. Before medicines, try this. Set a quit date and keep on decreasing till that day. Abstain from smoking from the quit date. You may face withdrawal once you completely stop smoking. If you can't control withdrawals meet a psychiatrist for medicines. There is a high chance you can do it without medicines. Just see that the quit date is not too far away.

Hello doctor. I suffer from anxiety and get depressed at t times.I get tremors when I am over anxious .And suffer from lot of phobias .Married for 7 years now and working.But I look cheerful .I badly want to get rid of phobias .I am scared to travel specially by air.I have also taken some ayurvedic medicines and counselling to overcome this problem as I was suffering from insomnia .That's helped me a lot.One more thing to mention.I have brittle flat n rough nails n doctor told me that I am allergic to gluten .

The problem of phobia is that it has to do with exaggerating the stimulus i.E. Air travel is quite normal and safe, yet your mind plays tricks with possibilities and probabilities and converts them into realities. You become so convinced that no one can change the fact in your head. Then the fear, not the fact, becomes life-threatening and incapacitates you. You will need, through therapy, to be taken through the motions of whatever it is you are phobic about and de-sensitivize you over a period of time. Since you are saying counseling has helped a lot, do continue in it until it is resolved. In the meantime do regular exercise and build a bigger heart that reacts to fear better than the normal person. The bottom-line of any phobia is abnormal levels of fear based in your past. If the feeling of fear is dealt with, it is sure to speed up your recovery. Regarding the nails, kindly follow your doctor's advice.

Dear . Stress and anxiety is part of everyday life. In fact they are defense mechanism of body with which body is able to tackle threatening situation. So you cannot cure both of them. You learn to manage them. Psychotherapy techniques, yoga, meditation, breathing exercises etc will be of immense help to you. You may ask a private question to me with all details and some examples. I will provide you tailor made therapy suitable for you. Take care.

I am 20 years old students. Many a times if feel so much anger that I am not able to control that. Can you please suggest me what to do to cope up with this.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You need to identify why you get so angry. 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.

He has Dyslexia. Please try Counselling. I need further information about school/Home environment and any other behavioural changes you notice. Dyslexia is an ongoing difficulty that has to be managed by parents and teachers together. Parents specially should be keenly aware of the symptoms and many manifestations of a Learning Disability, and initiate immediate action if they suspect anything. The Dyslexia Association of India recommends a comprehensive test if need be. This assessment can serve to put at ease many a worry that may be plaguing a parents mind. It can serve as a platform for them to be able to understand what is actually going on in the child's academic sphere and how as the first line of defense you as a parent can help your child. We would like to share with you, that an assessment with the Dyslexia Association of India is a Not For Profit activity. In fact it is time and money well invested. Its is an investment in knowing the strengths and weakness of your child and making an attempt to understand the child better. As a parent there are several important facts to consider where you child is concerned. Early intervention and diagnosis is an absolute must. Several conditions can induce dyslexic type tendencies as far as academic performance is concerned. Hearing Impairment, Poor vision, Glare from the board, bright light, supersensitive hearing. Making sure the child feels valued and loved. This is just not the parents responsibility, this is important at school too. Remember your child will spend more time with other adults and their peers than they spend with you. A dyslexic child will probably not be able to remember the stuff he needs for school the next day. It is important to work with the teacher to make sure you know what he needs for school. A good teacher will help; remember it is in their interest too to make sure the day goes smoothly! Help pack their school bag. Routine can be good. Remember a Dyslexic child will also have strengths that you may not, he or she may be artistic, musical. They are of course just as intelligent as their non-dyslexic peers! Its just works differently. Their long-term memory may be better than yours. They have to operate in visual and imaginative environment, as adults we get out of practice. If they have to research something for school, get the video or tape. Good teaching is not just talk and chalk While the symptoms relating to Dyslexia have been described earlier on, parents may want to keep the following in mind where their children are concerned. These three issues are the basic building blocks of academic performance and any difficulty usually shows up here first. Reading Reading and the problems that the child may display. Hesitant and laboured reading, especially out loud Omitting or adding extra words Reading at a reasonable rate, but with a low level of comprehension Failure to recognize familiar words Missing a line or reading the same line twice Losing the place or using a finger or marker to keep the place Difficulty in pin-pointing the main idea in a passage Finding difficulty in the use of dictionaries, directories, encyclopaedias Writing Writing and the problems you may see. Poor standard of written work compared to oral ability Poor handwriting with badly formed letters Good handwriting but production of work extremely slow Badly set out work with spellings crossed out several times Spells the same word differently in one piece of work Has difficulty with punctuation and grammar Confuses upper and lower case letters Writes a great deal but loses track of the main idea. Wanders off from the main point. Writes very little but to the point Has difficulty taking notes in lessons Finds organization of work and personal timetable difficult Clearly knows more than he can commit to paper Mathematics Mathematics and the issues associated with Maths. It is not Mathematics that is the problem with the child. Mathematics being a pure language is fairly straightforward. It is the same problems that we see in the other subjects across the curriculum that is the main issue. So what are the main issues? Difficulty remembering tables and formulae Finds sequencing difficult Confusing signs such as + and x The child can think at a high level in mathematics, but needs a calculator to remember basic facts Misreads questions that include words Confuses directions - left and right Finds mental arithmetic at speed very difficult Does not put the number in the tenth and hundred?s place correctly and the decimal under the decimal when adding or subtracting.

I am a CA student so I am busy all the day. and I am not able to concentrate on my health. I have gained a lot of weight these days. So can you suggest me a proper meal or any specific diet which will help me in losing my weight as well as which does not effect my concentration power. As I have heard from my friend that dieting makes concentration power low. So can you help me out in this?

Thanks for the query. Lack of concentration is due to lack of nutrients in our diet. It is important to know that just eating two heavy meals a day will not fulfill your nutrient needs. Most often we skip meals especially when at work or in college. We start our day on empty stomach but our work or stress or activity is never reduced. This causes weakness and lack of energy levels. This also leads to weight gain. Food is our source of energy and if you don't eat well as per your needs you are going to get deficient in many nutrients. This deficiency will lead to lack of concentration and fat accumulation. So, start by eating the right foods at the right time. Eat meals at frequent intervals. Smaller meals at regular intervals will help burn fats. Eat a mid meal between each main meal. Avoid junk foods. Include dairy, eggs, nuts, fruits in your meals. This is something you can manage out of home too. Avoid alcohol and smoking. Sleep well.    Exercise at least thrice a week or whenever it is possible for you to manage.
