Dear fhk. Welcome to lybrate. I can understand. Loosing someone near and dear is called grief and depression related to grief is pretty normal. But this sort of depression does not stay for long. This depression gets cleared within a span of some weeks. The best option for you is to undergo counseling and depression related therapy. Take care.

I face issues in making decisions. Fear is what stops me. How to deal with such situation?

I face issues in making decisions. Fear is what stops me. How to deal with such situation?
Hi lybrate-user, Fearing change keeps all of us stuck in place some times when it would be better to move on. That's normal human nature, but it's not serving us well. How do we get past it? It's not easy, but here are some questions that may help. 1. What's the worst that can happen if I make this change? I'm not suggesting you indulge in worst-case-scenario fantasies. What I am recommending is that you think about the difficulties you're likeliest to encounter as a result of your big change, and make plans to mitigate them. 2. What's the best that can happen if I don't make this change? Sometimes this question is the push we need to face up to change. It's simple: If you're unhappy with the status quo, and all you're likely to get is more of the same, then you have a choice: Learn to love what you already have, or go get something new. If you can't do the former, then you'd better do the latter, or you may be stuck in the doldrums forever. 3. Can anyone ever know everything? There's a simple answer to this one: Obviously not. This tells you that if an unknown future seems scary--well it is, and it is for everyone. Thinking you'll know what will happen if you change your life is as much an illusion as thinking that you know what will happen if you don't. In other words--it's all a mystery, so if you have the urge to give something new a try, you might as well go for it. 4. If I don't make this change, will everything else stay the same? This, too, has an obvious answer: No, it won't. This is something to keep in mind when making a decision about change. It's human nature to believe that the conditions we're accustomed to seeing will always be there but it isn't true. You may pass on that great business opportunity for the security of your job, only to be a victim of downsizing a year later. Or you could go start that new business, only to find that your former boss leaves and you'd have gotten that promotion if you'd stayed. Either way, there's a risk, and a choice to make. 5. Can I give myself permission to be sad about the life I left behind? You may need a little time to feel sad about the life you're leaving behind before you can fully move on to a new one. That's OK. And it doesn't mean you're making the wrong decision by changing. (Here's more on how to let go of what's holding you back.) 6. Will I be able to handle it if things go wrong? This may be the fear that's really holding you back. And the answer to this question is almost certainly yes. Most people are more resourceful than we realize, and more able to deal with difficulty. If you're letting this concern stop you from making a change--don't. You can handle more than you know. 7. If not now, when? No one likes to think about this, but the fact is each of us has no idea how little or how long we have left on this planet. I'll always remember my high school friend Stephen who advised trying out many careers because, he said, "Your life is long. It wasn't for him: He died of cancer at the age of 38. Consult me or any other psychologist to deal with this issue from the roots. All the best you can consult with me too.

Does masturbating affects health during teenage? How many times should one masturbate in a week? What should one do to improve memory power? Does smoking affects human blood pressure if yes then how?

Masturbation twice per week is healthy. Masturbation should be done when there is no time limit and there is no fear that someone while doing so will catch them. Use start and stop technique in masturbation. Lots of people complained of weakness from masturbation and wants some medicines, if one feels sexual weakness (erection problem, low desire, etc) from masturbation then it could be psychological, low testosterone level, and poor nutrition so people should not feel guilty regarding masturbation, should check their testosterone level and get treated, and improve nutrition status. There are some homeopathic medicines, which if given according to over all symptoms of patient can improve the weakness apparently caused by masturbation and help regain lost vigour. Masturbation if done excessively and poor food intake can lead to sexual problems/erectile dysfunction.

You are a sports person. Do not compromise with your health. Smoking is not good for anyone, its just harmful to you & your health. Keep away from it.

Hi Sir, I am an athlete I smoke 1 cigarette per day does it affect my performance.

MBBS
General Physician, Mumbai
Dear Lybrateuser, - It is advisable to completely avoid smoking especially as you are an athlete as a single cigarette also has 500-600 toxins in it which harm the body & secondly since nicotine is a habit forming chemical it may increase your dependency on it & the number of cigarettes can increase over the time, to keep your body fit & healthy give it up completely.

Hi the normal sleep requirement is 6 to 8 hrs preferably a continuous one. This may vary according to individual. Any thing less or more can be harmful. Always the bets way of studying is sitting irrespective of whether its on the floor or the chair. Only thing you need is a platform which can support you in holding the book at a height and distance which does not give too much of strain to your backbone.

My wife is suffering from paranoid schizophrenia. Sometimes she is very rigid and violent. Sizdon plus medicine she is taking. But she is reluctant to take a medicine. What should be done. Also she doesn't believe on any body including me also.

MD - Psychiatry, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Thane
Lybrate user, Welcome to this forum! I see that your wife is refusing to take treatment and she is symptomatic i.e paranoid about others. There are other ways to deal with this problem - 1) get her admitted in a hospital with psychiatry ward. 2) can start with depot injections or tablets that medicines that can be given on months/weekly basis. 3) follow up with psychiatrist for any other suggestions. All the best! Regular treatment is of utmost importance in a violent patient. Healthy mind is as important as healthy body. For more queries you can consult me online.

Your dreams carry the emotional attachments of your sub-conscious mind. It is very normal to get that dream. You can however decide'consciously' how much importance you want to give to these remnant feelings. Ignore it, don't act on it, let it fade away or think about it, be concerned and take an action that may disturb your present. Choice is yours.
