I am a 46 years old guy with OCD (cleanliness - washing hands after most activities with soap) and I have worked for 3 to 4 years all put together. I am jobless since quite some time. I do few household work and lead a idle life. I cannot cope with daily job routine, also I cannot perform on the job. Job is a must for me for survival as my savings are getting exhausted. These days I get tired easily. I find I lack energy also. I feel lethargic, sleepy most of the time. I am scared of the future. I am scared of life as I am unable to get job also. How do I make myself feel active, energetic. Rgds, Monty.

You need to stop smoking immediately and consult a chest physician, it can be due to lung inflammation or cardiac causes (angina). Get ecg, cxr, echo and blood tests to find the reason. If you can not stop smoking on your own, consult a psychiatrist for anti-craving drugs.

5 Ways to Deal With Relationship Conflict!

5 Ways to Deal With Relationship Conflict!

Intimate relationships bring out intense emotions and feelings in people. It is important to remember that your partner has opinions and feelings which can often be different from your own. This can make it difficult to always be in sync and may sometimes lead to fights. Often, we try to avoid fighting either by simply pretending to agree or by being aggressively stubborn that the other person agrees out of fear. That is why it is important to be able to fight productively and in such a way that a consensus is reached.

Here are a few ways you can resolve conflict:

1. Remember that the other person also cares about you

No matter how upset you are with your partner it is important to remember that you both care about each other. If you didn’t you wouldn’t be trying to find a resolution.

2. Don’t speak in generalities

When trying to resolve a conflict it is important to point the specific of what is bothering you rather than talking in general. If you talk about an isolated incident, it is easier to understand.

3. Don’t be afraid to admit you are wrong

People rarely get upset for no reason. Even though you may not think you did something wrong, your partner may. Keep an open mind when listening to them and don’t be afraid to admit you were wrong. Most importantly, know that it is okay for your partner and you to have differing opinions and perspectives about issues.

4. Convey active listening

Repeat to your partner what you think you’ve heard them say and ask clarifying questions. This is important when you think your partner is being irrational. You don’t necessarily have to agree with their point of view to take their feelings seriously. People assume they know what the other person has said. But this often leads to misunderstandings.

5. Have patience

Trying to solve a long-standing issue in a relationship takes time. We have all have problems that we carry with us at all times. Conflicts will lessen in intensity over time. It is important to be patient and resolve conflicts with a rational mind frame.

Suffering from headaches last 10-15 days. It's start effecting my thinking and memory. What should I do.
As you know that headache is usually due to some kind of stress (known or unknown). Effects on thinking & memory is also due to negative thoughts only I.e. Stress. It may be due to stress in studies, professional or family. At no meditation clinic mind management is available which is simple easy less time taking & not available anywhere. After mind management mind gets free out of stress insecurity in professional /family life. & becomes a super mind. What is a super mind - No extra thoughts only useful thoughts ,how to face comparison etc. All this mind comes to know in 1st meeting that yes the above facts are true & possible. Also effects on body & brain r treated with powerful techniques like craniosacral balancing n quantum touch visceral manipulation (especially for digestive system )which act on whole body. All treatment is available online Regards

I am 20 years old. I realize that remember power of my brain decreasing gradually. So what can I do?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Your brain power will not decrease unless you are not exercising it. You may be under some stress, and I do not know if you are aware of it. Find out what this disturbance is all about and as you address it, memory and concentration will happily return to favor you. Do meet with a counselor, if your stress is too much. In the meantime please follow the suggested guidelines: 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. 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. If your home life is full of distractions and stress, it is likely to affect your memory, adversely. In that case, I suggest that you and the family go for counseling too.

I am suffering from addition of smoking and I want to give up this habit how can I do this.

D.P.M, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Mumbai
Hello. Its great decision to quit. Set a date when you will absolutely not smoke. Work towards that day by gradually decreasing the number of cigarettes per day. Buy only one cigarette at a time and walk ten minutes to a shop before you buy the next one. You can also use the nicotine chewing gums available in chemists. You can consult a psychiatrist for medications to reduce craving. Good luck!

My father age is 65 he is suffering from parkinson. His health going down day by day he take levodopa 4 to 6 times in a day. He is also so impatient please suggest how can we care him.

COMT, MPTh/MPT
Physiotherapist, Surat
I understand your concern for your father. In physiotherapy we have several techniques to treat Parkinson’s patients like stretching exercises, manipulation techniques, mobility program, co-ordination/balance training etc. Physical therapy is the best treatment that we can offer to patients to make them work independently by increasing there functional performance. So I would recommend you to take him to physiotherapist who can make a best treatment plan from further deterioration of disease. By the time you can ask him to do daily walk for 20 min (if he can do independently) and general mobility exercises so that his muscles does not get stiff / rigid. Regards.

Hi, i've a healthy relationship with a guy, but m really worried abt him, he is always saying things like I feel ionely, not loved and that no one cares, no one understands, he has suicidal thoughts sometimes which makes me very frightened and I really want to help him, what should I do?

He may be going through some emotional turmoil or some professional difficulties. Have open communication with him about it without giving any advice and just listening to him. If there is nothing like this, he may be just going through low phase where he wants more attention and support. Don't let him feel like a victim, which he already does. He is just feeling pity for himself which needs to be stopped.

I wanna a psychiatrist consultation I am depressed in love matter I wanna forget my guy and come out of it.
The word depressed is a common everyday word. People might say" i'm depressed" when in fact they mean" i'm fed up because i've had a row, or failed an exam, or lost my job" etc. These ups and downs of life are common and normal. Most people recover quite quickly. With true depression, you have a low mood and other symptoms each day for at least two weeks The common symptoms are (few might be present in a person with depression) Feelings of sadness, tearfulness, emptiness or hopelessness Angry outbursts, irritability or frustration, even over small matters Loss of interest or pleasure in most or all normal activities, such as sex, hobbies or sports Sleep disturbances, including insomnia or sleeping too much Tiredness and lack of energy, so even small tasks take extra effort Changes in appetite — often reduced appetite and weight loss, but increased cravings for food and weight gain in some people Anxiety, agitation or restlessness Slowed thinking, speaking or body movements Feelings of worthlessness or guilt, fixating on past failures or blaming yourself for things that aren't your responsibility Trouble thinking, concentrating, making decisions and remembering things Frequent or recurrent thoughts of death, suicidal thoughts, suicide attempts or suicide Unexplained physical problems, such as back pain or headaches General medical conditions and substances causing depression also needs to be ruled out. Consult a psychiatrist and get evaluated.
