Hi lybrate-user, please chart out the stressors or issues at your work. Understand what are the factors which you can control and which you cannot. Plan with the help of a counselor how to face the issues at your work. Sometime our own assumption, negative thoughts and exaggeration may be the main reason. Take necessary steps and you can deal your issues.

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.

Yes lybrate-user, you are suffering from phobic anxiety. It is panic attack which you translate it as nearing heart attack. Panic is panic it never will turn into heart attack you must have noticed panic attack last for few minutes and then subsides. Anxiety is fear. It's the activation of the fight or flight system, which is the system that your body uses to react to fear responses. Anxiety disorders occur because the body is activating that response when no danger is present. But in addition to being fear, anxiety also causes other fears. That's one of the reasons that anxiety can be hard to treat without help. One of the fears it causes is a fear of cardiovascular problems (poor heart health), and often those fears end up contributing to further anxiety. It would be disingenuous to say you do not have a heart condition, because there is no way to know until you talk to your doctor. But let's assume that you're like most people - your doctor is going to tell you that nothing is wrong with your heart. So then why are these cardiovascular problems occurring? the answer is likely to be hyperventilation. Hyperventilation is also known as" over-breathing, and contrary to popular belief, it's not caused by getting too little air. It's actually caused by breathing out too much carbon dioxide. Your body needs the right balance of carbon dioxide to function. When you breathe too quickly (or breathe in more oxygen than your body needs), your cells are drained of their carbon dioxide and your entire body is forced to work much harder in order to function. Your blood vessels constrict, your brain gets less oxygen, and your heart has to beat extra fast because your blood is slowing down. This what causes the vast majority of the symptoms of a panic attack. And what makes it worse is that hyperventilation makes it feel like you're not getting enough oxygen, even though the reality is that you've taken in too much. Because of that feeling, most people continue to hyperventilate even more in order to try to get a" full breath" only to hyperventilate even further and experience a worsening of the symptoms. When you combine these symptoms with anxiety, you get a constant feeling that your heart is in poor health. The first thing you need to do is practice better breathing. Since hyperventilation causes most of the symptoms, it's important to start breathing more efficiently. Take slow, controlled breaths, and fight the urge to yawn or expand your chest. The moment you start to feel as though a panic attack is coming on, try the following: breathe in slowly, taking at least 5 seconds. Hold for two seconds. Breathe out as though whistling for 7 seconds. Never rush the air out of your body, and try to give yourself time to regain your carbon dioxide level. Don't hold your breath for too long though since holding your breath can cause similar symptoms and may exacerbate your anxiety. Controlling your breathing won't stop your panic attacks, but they should reduce the severity, and for many that alone can help reduce the frequency of panic attacks in the future. Once you've controlled your breathing it's time to combat your overall anxiety, which in turn will decrease your cardiovascular health fears. All the best consult a psychologist for same. All the best.

Sir my memory is not sharp I have problem to remembered something for a long time and not easily learn anything what should I do please tell me.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

Usually stress is the cause for his development. If you meet with a counselor you will be able to sort that out and enjoy good sharp memory.In the meantime do some of these recommendations very faithfully: Daily exercise of at least half an hour is a must. Even if you go to a gym, ask for aerobic and/or callisthenic exercises with whatever else you are doing. A healthy body harbors a healthy mind. With regard to memory, it is very important that your brain and body is ideally rested to be able to recall whatever is required, rather comfortably. Puzzles pose problems to the brain that help it to use new pathways and neurons, which give the brain considerable exercise. It taxes the left brain to use logic to solve the myriad possibilities which other activities do not stimulate. Crosswords are excellent for vocabulary learning and use. Jigsaws and Rubik cube stimulate different permutations to finally settle on the most likely one. Picture completion and anagrams help approach problem solving from several angles. Do Sudoku, and memory co-relation activities and skills. Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber (whole grains, fruits and vegetables), nuts, avocado, eat dark chocolate, consume less of fat and use olive oil instead, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. You need to check out if you are stronger visual or auditory. The visual is a better mode than the auditory. However, if you combine the two modes, you will get the best concentration. Have a special place of learning, which should be well lit, with soft painted walls, well-ventilated, with no distractions. When you get bored, study by writing. If you repeat learning at least five to seven times, you will apparently remember for a longer time. Sit comfortably but do not slouch. The reading material should be of a fairly large print. Study at small intervals of about 40 minutes and then take a break or change the subject. Short-term memory is a faculty of the left brain, and long-term memory is a feature of the right brain. When people are stressed, they tend to favor the right brain and abandon the left brain, where short-term memory resides. So, it is really very simple: deal with the stress and activate left brain functions. Here are a few suggestions to activate left brain function: shut your left nostril and breathe, move your eyes from right to left and vice versa for at least half a minute at a time, and do callisthenic exercises with some form of counting, regularly. There is a new exercise called Super Brain Yoga, which is done by holding the right earlobe with your left thumb and index finger, and the left earlobe with your right hand’s thumb and index finger. In this position you must squat down and rise up and do this for five minutes every day. There are some memory enhancing techniques and study methods that your teacher will be able to guide you with. If your home life is full of distractions and stress, it is likely to affect your memory, adversely. In that case, I suggest that the family goes for counseling too. The following foods do help too: Blueberries, walnuts, turmeric, Spinach, tomatoes, broccoli, acorn squash, green tea, oily fish, boiled egg, turkey, apples, oatmeal, leafy greens, lentils, pumpkin seeds, avocado, cinnamon, thyme, sunflower seeds, and red wine. Avoid sugar and junk food.

Being otherwise calm and but at times having an uncontrolled anger outburst for few minutes that you later regret, is suggestive of either a personality problem, impulse control disorder or underlying agitated depression. These are just possibilities which can be evaluated and managed accordingly by consulting a psychiatrist. At times unresolved mental stress may also lead to such symptoms'i would therefore suggest you to consult a psychiatrist for the same. Try mental relaxation exercises like deep breathing for 15-20 minutes, yoga or meditation etc.

You are having mild form of depression.In the initial stages or in the milder forms or in people who are not aware of the disease, depression can go unidentified till its implications become too obvious. People often overlook it as a mere low mood or some start assuming it as a part of their psychological makeup. Homeopathic treatment for depression is great form of alternative medicine and natural therapy for depression .The best part of homeopathic treatment is that the homeopathic medicines are natural and totally side effects free and its long term use leads to no damage to the body.

Am I suffering with depression? Couple of months I quit my good paying job and started own start-up. Things didn't go as planned, now I'm jobless with an about to fail start-up. I'm having issues in facing people, talking to others over phone, taking basic decisions and I want to sleep all the time, scared to get out of bed in morning, keep thinking about worst things that can happen in world. Is it symptom of depression or just a phase of anxiety?

It is more a sign of depression. The lethargy, reneging from taking decisions and withdrawal are typical symptoms of this condition. Anyone who focuses too much into the future is bound to get scared. Although your future looks bleak, it is not like it is the end of the road. You are still young and you have not lost your ability or qualification to venture into another start-up; or you could just go back to working with whomever or whatever you were doing before, without a hitch. Don?t let pride come into the picture. There are too many great people who have failed repeatedly and became a success because of those setbacks. Here?s something to motivate you, ?I've missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I've lost almost 300 games. 26 times, I've been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I've failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed? Michael Jordan. When you know something is definitely not working, cut your losses and review the failure to learn the lessons it has to teach and go forward into a viable venture, wiser and more prudent. Stop brooding over your loss, get up and face the day with a good round of exercise everyday and become an action man. Passivity is criminal in my books and should be in yours too: Do something, even if it is wrong! If the depression colludes with anxiety, it will cripple you in your very first setback. You are probably going to meet many drawbacks in life but you must pick yourself up and beat the hell out of new opportunities that accompany every failure. Get up and do things differently. The name you give your condition is not at all important, it is the motivation you get from the challenge that your future is going to be glorified.
