Dear lybrate user. I can understand. Feeling of attraction towards a male is not homosexual attitude or gay. You may feel attraction. At the same time you are also able to maintain yourself not to do it. This is positive. Therefore you are on the right track. Don't worry unnecessarily. I suggest online counseling and cognitive therapy. Take care.

A medical doctor will perhaps answer your problem regarding meningitis. I am going to touch on an emotional angle to all the problems you have mentioned. Her headaches, depression and fever have a strong basis originating from unexpressed anger. I am also aware that these can be caused by meningitis too but as mentioned I am showing an emotional perspective to it. It is therefore interesting that you do mention that she has a problem with getting easily angry and does get into depression, which is also anger related in my opinion. So apart from following the medical approach, do meet with a counselor and discuss her anger issues and where it has originated from. Perhaps there may be some information from her past either from her parents or from her own knowledge. It could be quite deep rooted and therapy must delve deeply too to get to the bottom of this residual anger until it is expressed, appropriately. The anger may be such that she may not feel like expressing it and therefore she has chosen to keep it under wraps. Any feeling that is suppressed will find a way of expressing itself internally and causing a lot of distress including headaches, fever, and depression. It may be useful to read a book by an author called Louise L. Hay, entitled, ?You can heal your life? to understand how emotions that have not been dealt with can disturb your life, and also how to go about healing the same.

Hello. My friend, Dilshad had undergone psychiatric treatment and counselling due to anxiety disorder. He still now feels as if he is not right or he is sick. He was talking today with me and said that he feels that his days are counted now. I know its just because of his anxiety disorder but I am really worried about him.

Ask him to seek help more from counseling in tandem with the psychiatrist's help. There are so many things to learn in life and coping mechanisms that the mere use of medicines will not suffice. The combination os these two therapies will definitely help sort out these dilemmas. If it is not effective then have him change counselors or doctors to see what works with him best. He is not talking in a healthy manner when he says that his days are counted. If he has discussed this with his counselor, surely they will want for him to do more intense work.

I am 24 years old male. I am a chain smoker since last 3 years. I wana quite the smoking. I tried many things like nicotine paper chewing but no result found. What should I do?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You must try and try again until you succeed. NO one wins this battle with smoking in the first attempt. If you persevere you will definitely succeed. In the meantime do try some of these recommendations: You have to quit cold turkey because the body and mind will torture you endlessly while attempting a reduction in smoking. The tobacco tar in cigarette smoke lines your lung with huge patches that make that portion dysfunctional. Your oxygen carrying capacity is jeopardized, and breathing is impinged on. But don’t be discouraged because it is not too late even now to reverse all the ill-effects of smoking. I don’t know what other organs could be damaged but do go for a thorough medical check-up to assess the effects of your abuse. Regarding improving your lungs, do a lot of aerobic exercise breathing through your nostrils only. Then there are a lot of deep breathing exercises in Yoga which you can learn too. Deep breathing cleanses your system and lungs and restores it to good health. Deep breathing uses the 80% of the lungs which are not normally used in normal breathing and even when exerting yourself. The greatest effect is in the lungs because this substance is processed through the respiratory system directly through the lung surface. When quitting, you must take one day at a time; though you must give up all smoking at once, and promptly. If you look too far ahead you will get discouraged and will give up. If you sit and count the number of days you have given up, that will also focus too much on achievement. You must focus on the here and now, on that day to be precise. After all quitting is not that easy due to many factors. So even if you fail one day, you must try and try again. Very few people succeed in their first attempt. Your persistence will eventually pay off. The urge to discontinue is hampered by many factors but the worst of them is the conditioning. In fact, these conditions can exist all through the day, unlike other addictions. But your desire to want to stop is the most important factor. It is important to find out about the ill-effects of smoking to have a reason that alarms you about continuing the habit. The information is really scary but true and you must remind yourself about this every day. The nicotine in tobacco smoke stimulates the heartbeat to raise the blood pressure in no time at all. So you must avoid it like the plague: it is just very bad medicine for you. In fact, it is highly toxic too. You will need to stop smoking or consuming any tobacco related items with immediate effect. You should start vigorous exercises, gradually increasing it over a period of time. Do deep breathing exercises every time you feel like smoking (try Yoga), and replace the oral urge with some healthy food substitute to satiate the need. You may also take hard candy or chew gum. If the urge is too strong, then use nicotine gums and nicotine patches, for a little while until the smoking drive reduces, substantially. You may also join Smokers Anonymous in your city where the support is really extraordinary for like-minded people who are also in the same situation. Keep yourself occupied or engaged with interesting activities during the times when it is most tempting. Keep the company of non-smokers for some time i.e. at least for the first 21 days. Above all announce it to everyone that you have quit smoking. Here’s a piece of very good advice: even if you accidentally/willfully take a cigarette, it is not the end of the world – you can start the cessation all over again. You must persevere with the best support until you defeat this addiction. Counseling is very useful in the initial stages and when temptations are at their highest. You could also join twitter2quit program and enjoy its success to give up smoking.

Hi, yesterday night I was having severe headache and it felt like I had a loss of balance. Before this in the evening, I had an argument with my boyfriend and was really upset. Also, I only had some donuts and maggie noodles for the whole day which was unusual. The headache went away in the morning after sleeping.I also have this numbness in both of my legs almost daily mostly after taking meals. I also have some issues with managing my anger. Can you please tell what could be the problem and if I need to worry?

Hi, What is your age? How is your sleep & appetite? Do you have any other health issue? Kindly give above information so that we can identify if there is anything to worry.There can be multiple causes for headache, may be you were stressed back then that gave you a "tension headache" or you have not been eating enough which can be another cause for feeling weak and low on energy. Secondly if anger is taking a troll on you, I can help you in dealing with your anger. Come back with answers. ALL THE BEST!!
