Alcoholism is major issue to destroy inter personal relationship. There is only way to save family is to treat the affected person with help of medicine and counseling. You have to do proper consult with good homeopathic practitioner and psychologist.

Dear Saikumar. Welcome to lybrate. Pericardium pain could be due to smoking, acidity or lung disorders. You should consult a physician first for evaluation. Take care

I have a friend. We both are very close to each other and share every secret. He has one elder brother, aged 31, working in a call center and one younger sister, completed her engineering searching for jobs. My friend is pursuing CA. His father is working in Railways and mother is a teacher. His parents have completed more than 32 years of marriage. Issue is his father at present is a earning more than 1lakh per month but he is not spending a single penny in the family or on himself. From the day they had got married. His salary comes to his account but within 1or 2 days he himself encash the whole amount by cheque and does not disclose where that amount is. When his mother ask to him regarding his salary for housing and other expenses his father tells salary has not came yet or I have sent those money to his sister or brother or sometimes to my friend. His father always lies to all the family members. They don't have a proper house to live. His mother is very much concerned about childrens wedding. What ever she is earning gets spend. She is not having any savings because of this. He and his siblings are staying away from home. His father has also got posted in Dhanbad, Jharkhand. Mother is staying in Patna alone. His father very often comes to Patna on weekend for Saturday or Sunday. Sometimes only for Sunday. Sometimes not at all. He is facing problems in his studies as the passing percentage is very low in the institute and his father keeps on telling him to fill the forms for Government Jobs but does not give him a single penny for anything. He gets only Rs. 5000 from his mother. Which is very hard to manage in a city like Delhi. He was telling he is very much disturbed regarding his family and his studies. Because of this he is facing failure from past 3 years and has got very much depressed. He is having tension all the time in his mind this has caused baldness for him. Please suggest how to handle the situation as his age is about 30 years old and still no job and he has not yet married. He is very much disturbed for lot of reasons. I feel very bad for him facing such issues. Please help!

It is very nice of you to care for your friend. As you are very close to your friend it is natural for you to feel bad for him. From what you have written it is apparent that your friend will not be able to change his father's behaviour. Also unless his parents are willing and open he or anyone else won't be able to do much about them. It is also clear that his mother has single handedly cared for her children and earned and raised them. This may sound harsh. I am very surprised that at about 30 years your friend is still depending on his mother and father financially. Not only that he blaming his father for not supporting him financially. Your friend should grow up and take charge of his life. Instead of feeling helpless or blaming either circumstances or his father for his destiny- he should invest his energy into. Completing his study, getting good grades and find a job. I. Am glad he is not married yet. He should not think about marriage until he is able to support himself. As a good friend I think you could take this opportunity to make your friend understand his own responsibility towards his life. He seems to be an intelligent person who if focus in his study would be easily able to pass and also secure a good job. I think you need to help him change his focus from blaming and expecting things from his father to taking charge of his own life. If you think he needs any specific advice then please feel free to book an audio consultation with me. It is truly painful to see such a talented young man not able to utilize his full potential. If need be he could speak to a counselor or psychologist for 2 to 3 months on a weekly basis. I do help you understand what I am saying regarding your friend taking charge of his life. Wishing you both very best.

You should support him. Emotional and moral support will helps to him to come out of his status. No body should not do anything practically. But why should allow him lonely. As a friend we should support him. We show ways to overcome from his problems. Life is not ended with financial problems. It happens everyone life. We should tell truth of life. We should create a good environment. To entertain him. We should create a very good friendly relations. So you do as your level best friendly support o k. Good luck.

Dear lybrate-user. 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.

Saif and Kareena Show How to Bridge the Age Gap Perfectly in Relationships

Saif and Kareena Show How to Bridge the Age Gap Perfectly in Relationships

Saif and Kareena show you how to bridge the age gap perfectly in relationships

There’s a lot to learn from the love story of the 10th Nawab of Pataudi, Saif Ali Khan, and the Bollywood actress, Kareena Kapoor. Despite the 13 year age gap between them, the two have a very strong and mature relationship. So what keeps the two sticking together through thick and thin? Here’s how Saif and Kareena have bridged the age gap to emerge as a powerful couple.

1. They know that age is just a number

For Saif and Kareena the 13 year difference is not an issue. They know that what matters in the end is not how old you are but the kind of personality you have. Both Saif and Kareena have a mature personality, and they gel perfectly well with each other. This is the reason why they are able to connect and maintain a strong and healthy relationship.

2. They care about each other’s family

Kareena has a very strong relationship with Sharmila Tagore, Saif’s mother. Not only that, Kareena has also made sure she is on good terms with Saif’s children from his previous marriage as well. Accepting each other’s family and past is a very important step in making a relationship work. Not only that, their families act as a support group for them, which helps them going on despite the difference of years between them.

3. They share common interests

Another thing that makes their relationship work is the fact that they share several common interests, which help them in coming closer and making their bond stronger. Saif and Kareena often go on trips together, attend cricket matches together and make it a point to go out for regular romantic dinner dates.

4. They respect each others’ views

Nothing could be more important in a relationship than respecting each other’s decisions. The Pataudi family tradition had women changing to Islam after marriage, with even Sharmila Tagore converting after her marriage. However, Kareena did not want to, and Saif fully supported her decision. Even their marriage ceremony was a  mishmash of their differing religions. So, if you want your relationship to work, be very open and accepting of each other’s differences and views.

The habit can be very difficult to halt because of the many conditions attached to smoking. 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 in the habit. The information is really scary. The nicotine in tobacco smoke stimulates the heart beat 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 chewing gum. If the urge is too strong, then use nicotine chewing gum or 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. Because this is an oral habit, there will be a tendency to over-eat to satiate the oral need. This will in turn increase your body weight, though I don't know that that will be desirable for long.

You will need to check that she is not suffering from some psychological problem. If she remains happy otherwise but doesnot show interest in sex, then talk to her- instead of insisting for an intercourse spend romantic time with her, talk to her a lot. If she is generally low on energy and sad, then you should consult a doctor.

My father is suffering from parkinson he is 60 now. Tell me is there any treatment for this.

COMT, MPTh/MPT
Physiotherapist, Surat
I understand your concern for your father. Parkinson's is a neurological degenerative disease and yes we have a treatment for this. In such patients the aim of treatment is to preserve a patients independence and treat motor and non-motor symptoms relief by minimizing the adverse effects of medicine. The medicine that generally given in such cases is Levadopa which helps to decrease the level of symptoms. Generally such patients develop disability because of which they are less physically active. So in such cases physical therapy is the best treatment that we can offer to patients to make them work independently by increasing there functional performance. In physiotherapy we have several techniques to treat Parkinson’s patients like stretching exercises, manipulation techniques, mobility program, physical conditioning, co-ordination/balance training etc. So if patient suffering from any such disease start medicines immediately that a neurologist have recommended along with neurophysio who can make a best treatment plan from further deterioration of disease. For any further detail please contact right away. Best Regards.

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.

Every individual has his/her own strength and capability to do different things in different fields. Try to find out your strength and work on it. Its a good thing that you have started to analyse yourself and found out your problem. Now its time to sort it out. Start fixing a small goals which u can achieve easily. Then slowly raise up your goals to different level. Comparing ourselves with others can not solve the problems. People with whom you are comparing will also have problems which are invisible to you. So just forget about others and move forward in your own way. First our ambition should be to achieve happiness. Then you can win anything you want. All the best.
