I want a baby but my wife is not interest in baby,so how can i handle this situation,please help me.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
I am sure that you two have not been for premarital counseling where all these matters and more are usually discussed and formulated. Any way the thing to do is to find out why she does not want to have a baby or is it only for now. If it is the latter then you can wait for some time. That is a reasonable ask. But if it is the former, then she does not some counseling to understand whether her reasons are sound or are based on some whims and misunderstandings. I don't even know how long you have been married but if it is early in marriage, then again she may not be ready for a child. Having a child is a major responsibility and it is important that you too are ready for it. There is what is called continuous marriage counseling, where the couple seek support right through their marriage during crisis and otherwise to learn to live well and happily. You may want to seek that type of help too. Please do not use an force. I hope you are both having wholesome sex too as that too will help her determine to have a child. For these and other matters, i advise you to seek more counseling and please do it on time.

I would suggest you to first consult a psychologist. Regular counselling therapy will help you better manage your emotions. You will also be able to learn to respond in a more mature and positive way to situations which currently triggering anger and sadness. If your psychologist feels that you need to go on medication then she will send you to psychiatrist. Even if you need to start medicine continue your sessions with psychologist. This will help you reduce and eventually stop medicines. Hope this helps wishing you very best.

Hello, I am suffering from extreme depression from last one year. I failed in exams, as a result. I tried to overcome on my own but now it is becoming worse. I cant concentrate on studies, cant enjoy things, my brain always is in worry & always tensed, dont know when I smiled last tym, a temporary relief I get is only when I go out with friends but after reaching home again I forget to smile or if I go to gym. Every morning I cant wake up early. I always feel tired and my mind tensed. And what is even worse is my allergy. Every morning I get up with running nose and countless sneezes. Dust and particle allergy is to blame. Can I beat this stress with medicines, are medicines effective in depression, I wanna feel light and active and ofcourse happy like when I was in college?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
The allergy is a sign of grief, and so is the depression. It is good that you have identified what activities help you and what do not. Now I recommend that you meet with a counselor soon and talk to the person about all these problems. You will be guided well, and you will also need to know about emotions and how to deal with them. It is good you like the company of your friends and can therefore keep in touch with them often and for long durations. In other words, do everything possible in your spare time to be with people. If you are staying with your family, then the other times can be spent with them until you have to sleep. Do not sleep beyond 6.30 am, every day. Get into a healthy routine of exercise, good diet, and proper sleep habits, soon. Exercise is really good for a lot of reasons but primarily because the aerobic exercise stimulates the brain to product natural antidepressants. The allergy too will disappear over time. There is some sadness from your past that is the culprit. Can you identify it? if not, the counselor will help you. The sadness will naturally precipitate a lot of tears. That too you must do with someone, never alone. Be committed to the therapy. If the counselor thinks that you need medical intervention, that person will surely send you to a doctor for psychiatric consultation.

Dear, 5 cigerettes per day is nothing. You wil be able to stop it without any problem. Just leave it and pledge never to touch. Show your will power to yourself. You may feel craving problem for three days. In those days use nicotine chewing gum. Then stop that too. Take care.

Depression is a treatable disease of the mind, which certainly affects your thinking, mood, emotions and also your decision making. Rather than blaming god or anyone for waste of your money, it would be more appropriate to start treatment for your depression. Like any other illness it is completely treatable. Consult online with a brief description of your present complaints and details of treatment taken if any so far. Take care.

Dear user. You are already 26 and you have enough experience and capacity to think logically and conclusively. You are not in a dilemma but in a confusion. Open your mind. Write down the pros and cons of the presented situations in front of you. Then select the one which is most rewarding, promising and peaceful. Otherwise, I suggest online counseling. Take care.

I am 18 yrs old & suffer from headache n always feeling disappointed by myself want to go abroad but family can't support me so everyday think about suicide.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You are very young and have a full life ahead of you. Sometimes when we are not able to get what we want, we need to adjust our wants to cope with the situation. If your parents cannot afford to fund your trip abroad, then that is the reality and you must learn to accept that. People who cannot make these changes to suit the situation end up becoming maladjusted persons and can suffer more problems in life. It is our resilience that is a sign of good mental health. Surely you do not come into that category!!! Please talk to a counselor, either with your parents or without them too, and discuss your problems at length. At your age you will need to see a lot more of life and realize that you are not mature enough to take your life for want of proper understanding of your circumstances. A counselor will do the needful to explain these intricacies of life. Even so, if you have a concrete reason and plan I am sure money can be arranged. To process this you will need a third person like a counselor to find out a way to do this and convince your parents too. There are loans that are available subject to the plan be feasible. Discuss these options and if need be meet with a career guidance counselor to be sure that your aspirations are in tune with your skills and aptitude. That person will also suggest the different ways to raise loans to fulfill your ambitions. But nothing is worth taking your life for. Your anger is making you have headaches and if it is not dealt with soon, you could end up depressed. Don’t be so rigid. Negotiate everything. There is always a way, if you are flexible.

It seems stress related and at your age, there could be a lot of hormonal imbalances that could cause some disturbances that need attention. Anger may be one of the unresolved issues that are seeking resolution and is coming up at this juncture just for that. Meet with a counselor and seek some help regarding your emotions. In the meantime, you could implement some of these suggestions to improve sleep: In your case particularly, do not sleep during the day; don’t even lie down. Go for regular exercise (breathing through your nostrils only) at a fixed time (at about 6 am) every day, whether you sleep or not. You must develop this habit of sleeping by 10 pm latest every night and wake up at a uniform time by 6 am every morning, even if you do not get sleep. If you do not get sleep, just lie down and if you have a bed lamp (or you could get one) lie down and read something light but not exciting. Your eyes will tire and you will fall asleep. If you like you may also put on light and soft music with the sleep function on. Depending on whether you are a visual or auditory person, you may watch TV in a lying down position until you feel sleepy. Have a warm bath before going to bed (for some people a cold bath at night seems to induce sleep! If you are one of them, please do so). Place the head side of your bed in a North-South position. The room must be as dark as possible and there should be no electronic items that give off even a light LED glow. There must be ample ventilation in the room. Avoid strong odors, except lavender, on your body or in the room, or on your sheets and clothes. There should not be any live plants in your bedroom. Sleep with the lightest of clothes or without any clothing. When lying down to sleep, lie down on your left ear as much as possible. Do not sleep directly under an overhead fan. You must eat a good breakfast, a fairly light lunch, and an early dinner, which should be a very light meal. Whatever you eat in the other meals, have only a pure carbohydrate meal at night with any vegetables, and preferably before 8 pm. Do not drink much liquids after or near about dinner time. When lying down to sleep you may use the 4-7-8 breathing pattern of sleep inducement i.e. Breathe in for four counts through your nostril only, hold for 7 counts, and exhale with a whoosh sound, through your mouth only, for 8 counts. Repeat this four times in the morning and just before you sleep at night. If you know Emotional Freedom Technique or EFT (check this out either on YouTube or Google), then please practice this too for sleep induction. Self-hypnosis and slow relaxation techniques, at night will be tremendously useful. Acupuncture or acupressure will both be very useful too. Pray last thing at night before you sleep.

Dear, panic attacks and anxiety disorder can be managed with the help of psychotherapy, meditation, exercise and life style changes. Please post a private question to me with every detail. I will help you. Take care. You must be able to distinguish between mental disease and mental disorder. Your problem is a mental disorder. Not a mental disease. Therefore no medicines are required. Mental disorder can be successfully treated with the help of 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.

Dear lybrate-user. That is a great achievement. Body starts its repair process the moment you stop smoking and drinking. Just leave it to the body. Physical exercise is a must. Have nutritious diet with plenty of water and fruits. It should take around 12 months for the body to completely repair itself. Take care.
