It's not the psychiatric illness that is being stigmatised rather it's the treatment for the same that's being viewed with a stigmatising fear. It's disheartening. . Spread awarness and uproot stigma. .

Masturbation is almost certainly good for your sex life. Masturbating doesn't reflect on your relationship. Masturbation doesn't have the health benefits that sex does. Masturbation is not risk, free. There's no" normal" amount of masturbation. Guys can get hung up on whether they masturbate too much. But it's not how many times you masturbate in a week (or day) that really matters, says logan levkoff, phd, a sexologist and sex educator. It's how it fits into your life. If you masturbate many times a day and have a healthy, satisfying life, good for you. But if you masturbate many times a day and you're missing work or giving up on sex with your partner because of it, consider seeing a sex therapist.

Dear lybrate-user don't get disheartened sometime in spite of no cause a couple may take time in conceiving naturally, as stress, diet and lifestyle are also factors which affects fertility. Since all your reports are fine, you should try for 3-4 month more during your fertile days i. E ovulation time and follow a healthy lifestyle and take diet including lots of fruits and salad. Quit coffee and fried food. Do some regular exercise or workout, so that your cycle will be regular and fertility will increase. Still if not able to conceive then get both of you fully investigated and ultrasound done and consult gyne for help.

Comply with all the medical prescriptions and work in tandem with a counselor for a long time and learn coping skills and techniques to handle the daily challenges you will face. There are certain adaptations that will suit you during the elation phase and there are certain behaviors that are required during the depressed phases. In the meantime you can do certain things that will give you benefits anyway. Emotional therapy will alleviate a lot of the problems faced in this condition because it is a mood disorder. You need to particularly look at your levels of anger both for its reasonableness and to express it in appropriate manner. I suspect that much of this anger may have origins in early childhood that you may never be aware of it now. Talk to your parents and explore that angle. This information will help the counselor too. Also you will need to check whether there is any genetic factor involved. You must exercise regularly, eat healthily and sleep normally too. If your motivation and cooperation is good much can be achieved. You must have a time-structured schedule filled with interesting and reasonable activities and it must be monitored for compliance and delivery. The reason I say this is that many times you will be inclined to have grandiose notions and confidently believe that you can do without the medication. This will set you back many months in the treatment and delay and sabotage the recovery: forewarned you are forearmed. If this combination of medication with therapy is maintained for at least three years without any episodes or breakdowns, it is possible to taper the medication in consonance with the doctor.

4 Ways To Manage If Someone Is Suffering From Depression!

Psychiatrist, Ahmedabad
4 Ways To Manage If Someone Is Suffering From Depression!

Most mental and emotional health issues are inconspicuous in nature and, therefore, cause more harm than they otherwise should, most people still live with a number of symptoms of depression without even realizing it or do little to address it. When the depressive symptoms last for more than 2 weeks and affect the individual's personal, social or occupational life, it is known as clinical depression or major depression. There is often a delay in opting for the treatment because of the social taboo associated with depression.

Depression makes a person miserable, disappointed, restless or numb for long and tedious timeframes, and is debilitating, particularly when they can't demonstrate their feelings and worries to anybody. It can meddle with their productivity and can become a concern not only in workplaces, but also in social circles.

So here's how to deal with a friend or family member in a depressed state of mind:

  1. Be considerate: Do understand that depression doesn't mean" trouble". Melancholy is a condition with an assortment of side effects like exhaustion, confused mind state and rest issues. These are all side effects of melancholy. Crabbiness is an exceptionally basic side effect, which once in a while is encountered by many individuals, and can lead to an expanded sensitivity. Normally, it's difficult to be sympathetic with someone who is behaving grumpily. But you need to make a conscious effort to still see the positive in depressed individuals and lead them to hope.
  2. Encourage and support: Try not to shame people for being negative. Dejection changes the world into a scene of pessimism. Discouraged individuals don't just focus on the negatives, but they also disregard the positives.
  3. Do validate: Approval can help manage a depressed state, and can wean a friend or family member out of depression. Remember that someone with dejection is not living in the same universe as you. The laws that oversee your universe don't exist in theirs.Depressed individuals require your understanding, your empathy, and your affection, considerably more when they are having a troublesome day, week or month. It is hard, but possible. Discouraged individuals value a positive backing in particular.
  4. Never say 'you're too much': When someone with depression is told "you're too much" particularly by somebody near them, it can send them spiralling into blame and nervousness and bitterness. Being encouraging and empowering is likewise useful. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Hi lybrate-user. You are stuck with a dilemma that affects many in your situation. Remember that fever can get better without any intervention, the body over a period of time will recover. So do we wait? Similarly depression and anxiety to can recover over a period of time, but it may cause lot of distress and handicap us during the time taken to get better. So if you can take medicines to get better and use you natural techniques to stay better - that would be the ideal situation, But for mild conditions, medicines may not be required. So for your queries - 1. Not, lifelong medicines are not required, provided you do continue with the natural remedies mentioned by you. 2. Cure possible, but this would be decided by the severity of your symptoms and the distress that is present. 3. Exercise ensures that you are better placed to reduce the chances of recurrence and if it were to still come about, it could be of lesser severity.
