You can come out of depression but you need to combine counseling with medication. In counseling, you will learn a lot of skills and techniques that will help you to meet the daily challenges in life for that of a depressed person. In the meantime please do the following sincerely because you could resolve the problem better with good cooperation: Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber, nuts, avocado, exercise regularly, eat dark chocolate, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. I suggest you do the opposite of what this depression makes you feel like doing (actually, not doing): you will need to fight this condition. You must become active; stay upright during the daylight time; meet people; never sleep during the day, wake up by 6 am every day, play some active games, especially contact games, do physical exercises, talk to people and join some social clubs, attend Yoga classes etc. Watch sitcoms on TV or comedies and cheer yourself up. Go for excursions in groups, for outings, camps, conferences, and religious conventions. Get a pet dog and spend time training it, exercising it and relating to it. Expose yourself to some sunlight every day, at least, 30 minutes but not in the scorching heat. Whatever happens, please incorporate these three important adaptations in your life: always be responsible, be respectful, and be functional. If you did these three, lots of things will go well in life. Please pray and have faith in God to alleviate your sufferings. Don’t wait for others to help. Use your own motivation, which might be at its lowest, but persevere and win this battle. Above all to be really happy, you need to live in love and for love. Learn all about emotions and how to handle them and that will get you out of the depression rather easily and quickly. A counselor is there only to facilitate you, all the hard word must come from you, and your cooperation with that person is very critical for your success. Be positive every day and learn to be contented with what you have. Do some left brain exercises: it is the happy brain. Here are a few suggestions: 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. Whatever happens please cooperate with the therapy and do not discontinue until the condition is completely resolved.

Hello, There are many aspects of depression, the more of them you have the more likely you are to have a clinical depression. Some patients feel severely depressed and suicidal. If you have these feelings you should go to the emergency department immediately. Other things that people with depression can feel are sadness, low energy, lack of motivation, poor sleep, irritability, weight gain or loss, poor self image and sometimes even a lack of touch with reality. The more of these symptoms you have the more likely it is that you have serious depression. Treatments for depression include medications, counseling and exercise. Again the more of these you do the better your chance for a successful treatment. Good luck to you,

At your age the hormones are goading this drive and most of your mind and time will be occupied with this indulgence. You have to refrain from these habits and addiction by conscious effort.Masturbation is not really bad; it is the addiction to it that is bad. Not even the number of years is a problem but the frequency and compulsiveness to do it is to be considered for its ill-effects. At your age you may feel it difficult and it can become addictive if you have alone time, if you obsess about it, and if you are not into relationships. The problem with addiction to this is that you may go on to prefer masturbation to heterosexual contact, even when you are married. That obviously would be an insult to your wife and will lead to a lot of conflict. Heterosexual contact is very wholesome and the physiology is made exactly for penile and vaginal contact. You will instead enjoy a poor replica of this and not know or care for the difference. The second thing that can happen with addiction is that it will become compulsive and will have no boundaries or limits, since it can be done all by yourself, whenever, wherever, and however too. The big problem a lot of children get into is the guilt around this. A useful way to discharge the energy is to get into contact games, or exercises, or even hobbies to channelize it. Also you should not spend too much time alone, and you need to keep your mind occupied with other interesting things and a lot of socializing. Even if you are not interested in marriage, for whatever reasons, it will help you to get into a friendship with a girl and enjoy the relationship where there will be a lot of excitement when you fall in love. Right now your hormones may be very active and your physiological apparatus is primed and ready for sexual stimulation. But because of your age and even otherwise it is important to develop good control and not feed into your impulses. Keeping yourself occupied and living a healthy social life are the keys to manage your sexual drives.

You are looking down the barrel of a very difficult situation: She is making public her displeasure and is unwilling to seek help from a professional outside the home too. I think that she may have some inhibitions around sex, for many reasons, from her family of origin. In that case, you must be gentle in your approach and find out her discomfort and address that with a lot of understanding and some education. You say that she is also complaining of the frequency of your demands, or is it about how many times you want sex? If the latter, am I to understand that she does let you have sex but not so many times that you want it? If this is true, then again you must be gentle and coax her into the act, and reduce the frequency until she becomes more amenable. One thing to do, to make her more amenable, is to increase the foreplay to a level that is close to orgasm so that the experience is exhilarating that she may want more of it. It is also possible to get a close friend/relative (close also in age to hers), whom she respects to talk to her. In spite of all this, if there is still resistance, you may have to call her parents into the scene and have them intervene to remove whatever is holding her back. And if that fails too, then you will need to call in a spiritual leader to talk her into some compliance. Ideally, you want her to concede on her own volition but if she is playing this hard, you may have to resort to these measures recommended. My other concern is if she is volatile and does something drastic to herself because this is too much for her, we may be taking an undue risk. Consider all this before taking any chances that provoke an adverse reaction.

Why Counselling before Marriage is Important

Why Counselling before Marriage is Important

We as individuals are unique and blessed with independent thoughts and intellect, which help us in making decisions in life. One of the biggest decisions in life that we have to make is choosing a life partner. We may have to go through several proposals and meet lots of people before we are able to make this crucial choice and select an ideal partner to spend the rest of your life with. Many times, such decisions are made sooner and at sometimes we may have to seek the opinion of our friends, relatives and well-wishers to be able to find the perfect match.

In all cases, what really matters is that the relationship that we have build has to be strong enough to last a lifetime and that if there is any problem between the couple, they should be able to resolve it amicably, with understanding and maturity. In order to forge relationships that can last, the beginning of the association has to be crucial. There are a number of ways in which you can ensure that the beginning is smooth and that the rest of your lives are also spent in happiness.

The importance of counselling
In the modern times, when couples expect a lot more than couples of the olden times, it becomes extremely important to make sure that the couplevisits a marriage counsellor in time and is given an opportunity to get to know each other in a better manner. Here are a few ways in which counselling may be a boon for newly acquainted couples who are to get married.

  1. The counselling may help them realise their similarities and also understand what their strong points as a couple
  2. The session of understanding each other may also aid in knowing what they expect from each other in the long term rather than finding out the difficult way.
  3. It may also help in understanding the importance of amicable family relationships and how close and extended families help in the making of long and strong relationships.
  4. The pre-marriage counselling provided to couples also ensures that they are able to get a healthy and transparent forum to be able to know each other and understand what they can expect from life if they are together.

Getting the right kind of help
Although parents and elders usually advise the couple before they get married, it is important to make sure that formal counselling is also received from an expert in the field of psychology. When you choose to go to a worthy and trusted expert, you are able to ensure that the best methods of opening up to each other are used and that the session remains fruitful for the couple as well as their families in the long term.

Dearlybrate-user, in many ways, introversion is blessing. Introversion is creativity. Introversion boosts creativity and you, being alone and not liking to visit friends etc is blessing in that way. You have potential and utilize it positively. This behavior is never a sign of aging. Take care.

Smoking even a single cigarette is extremely harmful. Cigarette smoke has more than 4000 chemicals and most of them are dangerous. Your skin, heart, eyes, liver, lungs, esophagus, etc. Are the many organs to name just a few that will get seriously affected. Please do not believe anyone who says anything different. It is a lie to justify smoking and the harm is real and very bad.

Doctor I am 28 year male feeling scary to go outside always sit in home only. What is the solution for it?
Hello, Practicing yoga helps you in releasing the stress from your body. Brisk walk in a park will help you inhale more fresh air and oxygen for good functioning of the cells and tissues of the body. Medication: Take Schwabe’s Bacopa Monierri 1x/ thrice daily and Kali Phos. 6x/ once at night. Yogasana: Practice the following poses if you don’t have any medical condition or pregnancy or else take an advice from your concern doctor and then only perform these. 1.Balasana: Sit on your heels with your big toes touching and hands resting on your thighs. Lower your belly and chest to rest between your knees, bringing your forehead to the floor. Relax your arms back beside your shins, palms facing up. Soften your breath by taking 5 to 10 long, deep inhalations and exhalations. 2.Savasana: lie back, letting your body sink into and open around the support. End in a supported pose on your back with a folded blanket under the length of the spine to help arch the upper and middle back, and lengthen the lower back. Move your arms a comfortable distance away from your body and anything else around you. Turn your palms to face up. Separate your legs a natural distance apart. Relax your feet and let them roll open. Finally, do a mental scan from head to toe: Where are you holding tension. Release it from every part of your body—including your heart and head.

Dear Bharanidharan, Once your bipolar disorder is well under control with lithosun, sexual drives will be normal. During manic phase sex drive will be more and during depressive phase you may have less sex drive. It is normal to have different penis size - small during flaccid phase, big during erection. After all penis size is the blood supply to it

I am 43 yeas old and from last six months, sometimes I feel that my heart is beating very fast and noise of the same is heard by me, mainly at nights.

It is likely that there is a non-cardiac cause for this. Angiography may be done to rule out even a remote possibility of heart disease, and you can go ahead with it. If it is normal, then a psychiatrist consultation will be needed. In the meantime, get a thyroid profile and complete hemogram done (if not already done). If they are okay and angiography is normal, and you are cleared by the cardiologist, anti-anxiety medicines such as paroxetine or escitalopram or propranolol may prove very useful to you. These are not sleeping pills and will not make you drowsy. Take care!

Hello lybrate-user, it is quite human and normal to feel possessive about your family members because you love and care for them. And I sense that you too want their love, acceptance and support from them. 1. However it is important to remember our boundaries with everyone including family members so that the relationship has breathing space and all members are able to" grow together" and find their own individual space in this world. In psychology we call it the human need for individuality and togetherness. 2. When a person gets both kind of space in life, they feel connected, safe, secure, Confident and liberated. This is very important for all people to give and take from each other. 3. If a person doesn’t get the space to experiment and do things in their own way, their individual personal growth stops and high possibilities of dysfunctional living ie. Arguments, misunderstanding, poor physical and mental health. 4. Thus I suggest that you give your family members the space to branch out and grow in different ways which might be their dream. 5. Trusting them and being patient with them is important. Doing their own thing doesn't mean that they don't like you or will forget you. This is a very innate need and they will function best when they get space and also enjoy some emotional closeness with each other. 6. While they are doing their own thing, I suggest that you start looking into your own life and pick up a lost hobby, catch up with friends or whatever you think you didn't have time for and had sacrificed for the sake of your family. This way every person will have space and support of each other.

I Don't have any habits related to smoking or drinking. I don't drink coffee and tea either . I am well built with moderate height of 5.8 . My sexual perspect is good too . My problem - when I get angry, I go berserk. No matter what's in my hand, I use it to throw it away in anger . I never beat women but when I get angry I get so tensed that I beat myself with whatever I have in my hand . My flow of words is also kind of shaggy when I speak during the anger mode . No proper flow of sentence in other words . I get very very arrogant, angry and mad when someone tries to harm my loved ones especially. It's as if someone has occupied my body is how people tell me when I am in anger . Anything that you could help me with in order to stop this problem?

Unless you make up your mind, nothing will work efficiently as expected. You have to choose every time whether you want to get agitated or be patient and behave properly. You have realized that when you get angry you lose your sense of balance and later regret because you make a fool out of your self! its just a matter of time that you can overcome most of your problems provided you have a sincere willingness to change. You can write down your thoughts and reactions in a diary and analyse where you go wrong every time you get angry. Give yourself some time (may be a few months to slow down.) your friends and close relatives can give genuine feedback if you ask them to tell them the truth about your nature. Homeopathy can work wonderfully if a proper case is taken. Till then, work on the few suggestions that I have given.
