You seem to have an emotionally labile mood and you seem to be susceptible to stressors in your daily life. That makes you vulnerable in relationships. Feeling sad, depressed, having a low self esteem, staying away from people in spite of being alone etc are signs of a depressive phase. This also quite common with thyroid abnormalities, vitamin deficiencies etc. You need to get evaluated by a psychiatrist for the definitive management that you need. It may include some medications and counselling.

My husband is having a wired behaviour which leads to violence and stressful atmosphere at home. I am very scared at times As it is putting bad impact on my 2.5 years daughter. I need your expert support. Thanks.

You must both seek a counselor's help. If that person feels that he needs psychiatric help, then he can be directed to seek such help. If you suggested it, he may rebel and act violent towards you. If he refuses to behave himself, you can take immediate action even through the police, for domestic violence. If you do not act and always look afraid, he will only get worse and lose all control. He needs help and someone has to take some effective measures.

Hi, The medication you are taking helps to reduce anxiety and in getting better sleep. You will have to consult your doctor regarding how long you should keep taking it. According to me. You should also address your anxiety relating to fear of meeting with a road accident again. Sometimes we face an unfortunate incident and somehow our mind starts over focusing on that 1 particular incident or 1 particular detail out of the whole incident and blows it out of proportion as a result of which we start getting anxious thoughts and worries which then lead to bodily symptoms such as acidity, heartburn, palpitations etc. Later these bodily symptoms start becoming a source of anxiety and worry thus compounding the problem. For example, you are 31 years old and as per your query you met with 1 accident that too where you did not face any loss or injury (I presume). 31 years x 365 days = 11315 days. Out of 11315 days, you met with an accident once but now your mind is only focusing on that 1 day and ignoring the rest 11314 days when nothing happened. Accepted that the possibility is always there but the probability is quite low. We cannot stop living our lives because of a fear that may or may not come true. Anxiety emerges when we give undue importance to a thought that arises in our mind and start believing it to be true without sufficient ground to do so. Please try to focus on the many times when nothing has happened to you and relax. That will help you the most in the long run. Do not allow one single thought to over power your entire life, I am sure there are other beautiful aspects to it too which make life worthwhile. Hope this helps.

Sir one of my best buddy have one bad habits he drink wine so can you give me solution how stop him to drink wine.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
If you think that he will find it very difficult, then admit him to a hospital and go for de-addiction: which normally lasts for about two weeks. Then follow that up with addiction counseling from a professional for at least three years to completely get rid of the habit. If this is also not enough, then admit him into a de-addiction center and let him stay there for at least 6 months and after that attend counseling with a professional. There are medicines that help with the drinking just to ease the initial craving. Ultimately, it is his will power and the support that he receives from the medical fraternity and his close and dear ones. He must also learn to substitute and deal with the oral need, a rigid value system, the script issue, and of course look at all the genetic factors to plan a strategy not to get into what is called ‘cross addictions’ i.e. another form of addiction that may appear alright but is in fact as bad as the primary addiction. The center or hospital and the counselor will advise and guide him on several measures and precautions he will need to take to stay with his resolve. Even after the rehabilitation he must attend AA meetings and continue this support for a long time. His family will also need to attend some sessions and go for Al-anon meetings for their co-dependency issues. He cannot be treated in isolation because the family has gotten used to his drinking and have made some unhealthy adaptations to somehow cope. His children will also have to attend meetings to work out their issues because of the father’s habit. In fact, they are all suffering from the Adult Children Of Alcoholics Syndrome (ACOAs), which in effect means that they are genetically predisposed to alcoholism or can have cross addiction problems and they will have similar traits of the abusing alcoholic but in a milder form. There are special support groups for them all over the world. Should they touch or indulge in alcohol or any addictive substances or behaviors, they could also become full-fledged addicts themselves. If your buddy refuses to go for rehabilitation, then some centers have a method of picking him up when he is totally sloshed and is not able to fight back effectively. They will need the family’s written consent before willing to take him in this manner. Make a serious plan with the wife and children and whoever else’s support he can get and act on it fast.

When Will My Newborn Start Teething?

When Will My Newborn Start Teething?

Tooth eruption is not only a sign that your child is acquiring the ability to tear, bite, and chew food but it also effects the baby's weight gain, immunity strengthening and development of the brain indirectly.

It is observed that most babies get their first tooth at around 6 months after birth, but they may start gnawing as early as 3 months or as late as 14, and may vary from child to child.  This depends on many factors, one of them being as when the parents started sprouting teeth and whether or not your baby was a preemie. In case of premature and low birth weight babies there may be a delay in their first tooth eruption. Children should have a full set of primary teeth by the time they are almost three.

Babies generally undergo the following Teething Timeline:

  • 6 months: lower central incisors

  • 8 months: upper central incisors

  • 10 months: lower and upper lateral incisors

  • 14 months: first molars

  • 18 months: canines

  • 24 months: second molars

Symptoms of Teething:

  • Babies start gnawing to relieve the pain of an emerging tooth.

  • Puffy and red gums

  • Excessive drooling

  • Irritation, especially at night

  • Tugging Ear

  • A change in eating habits

Methods to Soothe the Pain:

Teething is a physiological process, no major intervention is needed.

  • Distraction: You can often soothe your child simply by diverting their minds off the pain by any new toy.

  • You shouldn't use teethers and topical teething gels to soothe the pain as they might be toxic to babies.

Symptoms of teething usually disappear when the tooth breaks through the gum. In case your baby is teething and the pain prevails , the following signs and symptoms are seen - high fever, diarrhea, or vomiting, highly inflamed gums or blue gum (Cysts) or any kind of lesion or bumps on the gums. In such case you should consult the pediatrician for further guidance.

Dear, In my opinion, smoking is easy to quit. Tobacco is addictive. Cigarette also contains 4000+ carcinogenic chemicals other than nicotine. The best method is to leave it and continue with your will power. There are other methods like Nicotine Replacement therapy and pharmacotherapy combined. If you?re ready to stop smoking and willing to get the support you need, you can recover from nicotine addiction and abuse abuse?no matter how bad the addiction or how powerless you feel. The first step in treating nicotine addiction is accepting that you have a problem. Confronting an addiction and accepting responsibility for your actions isn?t easy. But it?s a necessary step on the road to treatment and recovery. You should then consult a psychiatrist / psychologist who fill follow this treatment. 1. Detoxification using medicines. 2. Behavior modification with the help of therapies. 3. Counseling. 4. Medication to sustain and 5. Long term support. These given steps are essential for any addict to get effectively rid of smoking. Therefore, you need to stick to the treatment plan and cooperate with your psychiatrist / psychologist. Take care.

I'm suffering from obsessive compulsive disorder what to do sir now I'm using pantoprazole, nitrazepam, escitalopram shall I use these medicines or stop or take another tablets can you suggest sir.

Psychologist, Delhi
Please first visit a psychologist and get psychological testing done to confirm if you have ocd or ocd like symptoms. If it is ocd, you will be cured by medicines but in case reports reveal you have ocd like symptoms, then psychotherapy is the cure, medicines will not help much. Psychotherapy is treatment given by talking and a psychologist is the specialist who treats psychological problems without medicines.

Hie, M a girl N I smoke cigarette twice a day, is it okay or it will effect me badly?

MD - Alternate Medicine, BHMS
Homeopath, Surat
Your lungs can be very badly affected by smoking. Coughs, colds, wheezing and asthma are just the start. Smoking can cause fatal diseases such as pneumonia, emphysema and lung cancer. Smoking causes 84% of deaths from lung cancer and 83% of deaths from chronic obstructive lung disease, including bronchitis. To leave that habit: sauna bath for 5 days which helps you to drain out nicotine from the sweat produced over skin. This will reduce your craving for smoking. Then revert me back with follow-up.

Actually I used masturbate regularly. As I am very much attracted towards sex. Whenever I see a girl or lady only two things come in my mind her breast and bumps and starts looking at her vaginal area and after that I have to masturbate. Please help me to get out of it. I tried a lot to indulge in some other activities but nothing is working.

MBBS, MD Psychiatry, DNB Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Nagpur
Since you admit you are obsessed with sexual thoughts on seeing females and have to compulsively masturbate after that to relieve the anxiety, it suggests that you have a obsessive compulsive symptoms. You have also attempted controlling them by diverting yourself to other activities but that failed. So I would suggest you to seek assistance with medicines and counseling from a psychiatrist. Consult online for further queries and help.

I am feeling emotionless now days and that too on a very high scale. For example If I get 20% in a exam I won't feel any bad. Even if I won't be having any job I don't have any fear .Jo hona hain hone do" I am not having any feelings. Can this be linked to excessive masturbation?

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Chennai
U need your emotions to be evaluated by a psycchiatrist, no it is not linked to masturbation. Masturbation is a very healthy form of sexual outlet, do not feel guilty about it. Nearly 99% of men and more than 60% of women masturbate. It starts from adolescence and goes on in some people even till death. The pleasure (orgasm) from masturbation is said to be unique from sexual intercourse. In men, most of the liquid contains only water and some fructose and hormones. Hence it does not drain your energy. Many equate masturbation/ seminal fluid loss to lack of energy, impotency and so on. Many quacks, religious heads and pseudo healers also propagate the idea that masturbation is a disorder/ and wrongful behavior and instill fear on the mind of innocent men and women (we can see posters in train and bus stand, offering help for this behavior). Consult a psychiatrist, if you have excessive masturbation guilt or compulsive masturbation. Compulsive masturbation is when a person continues with frequent masturbation neglecting his/ her other work like education, job or social obligations. In fact masturbation reduces the sexual tension and helps focus on task at hand better.

I want to increase my memory and concentration. What I have to do ? I really wanna increase my memory. Help me.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
7 Ways to Remember Anything Research-based strategies to boost your memory and keep it strong 7 Strategies for Remembering 1.Become interested in what you're learning. We're all better remembering what interests us. Few people, for example, have a difficult time remembering the names of people they find attractive. If you're not intrinsically interested in what you're learning or trying to remember, you must find a way to become so. 2.Find a way to leverage your visual memory. You'll be surprised by how much more this will enable you to remember. For example, imagine you're at a party and are introduced to five people in quick succession. How can you quickly memorize their names? Pick out a single defining visual characteristic of each person and connect it to a visual representation of their name, preferably through an action of some kind. Remember: Memory is predominantly visual. 3.Create a mental memory tree. If you're trying to memorize a large number of facts, find a way to relate them in your mind visually with a memory tree. Construct big branches first, then leaves. Branches and leaves should carry labels that are personally meaningful to you in some way, and the organization of the facts ("leaves") should be logical. 4.Associate what you're trying to learn with what you already know. It seems the more mental connections we have to a piece of information, the more successful we'll be in remembering it. This is why using mnemonics. Write out the items to be memorized over and over and over. 5.When reading for retention, summarize each paragraph in the margin. This requires you to think about what you're reading, recycle it, and teach it to yourself again. Even take the concepts you're learning and reason forward with them; apply them to imagined novel situations, which creates more neural connections to reinforce the memory. 6.Do most of your studying in the afternoon. Though you may identify yourself as a "morning person" or "evening person" at least one Study. Suggests your ability to memorize isn't influenced as much by what time of day you perceive yourself to be most alert but by the time of day you actually study—afternoon appearing to be the best. 7.Get adequate sleep to consolidate and retain memories. Not just at night after you've studied but the day, you study as well. Far better to do this than to stay up cramming all night for an exam.

10 Reasons Why You Should Quit Smoking Right Now!

10 Reasons Why You Should Quit Smoking Right Now!
Smoking is less socially acceptable these days. Most workplaces, shopping malls, theaters and stores prohibit smoking.

Many government entities are enacting laws to ban smoking from all indoor public places, including bars and restaurants. However, despite all these steps, this very expensive habit is still prevalent in society.

Mostly people start smoking as teens, and they are addicted by the time they reach adulthood. There are many different reasons why people smoke. They can start out of curiosity, peer pressure, a desire to fit in with a group or look older and mature, or even to rebel.

It can also be influenced by parental example or used as a means to reduce stress and feel more relaxed. In some countries like the united states, the impact of advertising and media is waning as governments have restricted such practices, but it continues in many parts of the world.

According to the centers for disease control and prevention, an estimated 43.8 million americans smoke. It is the leading cause of preventable deaths in the u. S.

Smoking kills more people than obesity, substance abuse, infectious diseases, firearms and traffic accidents.

There are about 600 ingredients in cigarettes that when burned create more than 7, 000 chemicals. Some of the most harmful chemicals released in cigarette smoke are nicotine, tar, carbon monoxide, hydrogen cyanide, formaldehyde, arsenic, ammonia, lead, benzene, butane, cadmium, hexamine, toluene and lots more.

These chemicals are harmful to the smoker as well as those exposed to secondhand smoke.

This habit is very difficult to break. Even when cutting down on cigarettes, you begin to go into a withdrawal phase and experience a variety of symptoms like headaches, fatigue, irritability and nicotine cravings.

But there are many reasons to quit, not the least of which are improving your health and saving your hard-earned money.
