You are going through grief reaction, which is normal after loss of a loved one. Time is the healer for the emotional and behavioral changes, however if your depression is severe enough to affect you in a significant manner, kindly consult a psychiatrist for short term antidepressant medication, depending on the complaints.

Anti depressant medication should be continued for at least one year. Due to depression there occur some chemical changes in brain. Antidepressant medications may reverse this change, which may take many months. After about a year of stablization if there was none relapse of illness, medicines may be gradually tapered before stopping it. So, my advise is to continue medicine as advised.

I have been married 4 months back. My husband was good in the beginning, we enjoyed a lot and we had sex regularly. He spends more time chatting with his friends and asks girl friends to send their photos (not nude) and even makes their friends as his. This was from the beginning but I noticed it recently. He hides many things from me. When I knew that he chats and questioned him He started deleting chats. He watches porn videos a lot and says that he is doing his work. He keeps a hand on me while sleeping and engages himself in chatting. He spends a lot money for his family and thinks a lot to buy many thing for me. He even drinks beer and eats non veg. He promised me that he will stop drinking. We have sex now a days only on weekends. He enjoys watching porn videos without me. We are not happy in our relation. I love him a lot and please suggest me something.

I think his true colors are just being revealed. Many of us portray a very good side of ours before marriage and for some time after too. But in time that ‘acting’ will cease and the true nature will emerge. If you are not happy with what he is doing then confront him, and you may do so openly in front of his folks or yours to make it more effective. But how much you can change him is a big question unless he himself wants to change. The reduction in sexual contact shows that he is getting his gratification from the porn and viewing other girls’ photos. If he is eating non-vegetarian and drinking beer that is a matter of choice and unless there is abuse of the substance and loss of control we cannot say that that is bad in itself. You must be more effective in dealing with him otherwise this will become the pattern of the relationship, forever. Then if he is willing you can both go for marital counseling and continue with that person until your matters are resolved. If all this does not produce results, then you must take a call, even if you love him passionately.

I have table work in office for a long time. Over a period of time I have been addicted in chewing tobacco. However I want to get rid of that. Please give me feasible solution.

STOP SMOKING Best age to stop smoking is before 40, In fact do not start all Only by using strong will power and avoiding all situations where you feel like smoking, chewing tobacco or drinking or using drugs/ weed, avoiding friends who smoke and diverting mind by reading or chewing a gum, like NICORETTE and taking a walk when you crave for a smoke can all help. You can chew Nicorette gum which is nicotine replacement. There are medicines available. Which can be prescribed if asked personally Cigarette smoking is a leading preventable cause of mortality. It kills more than 60 lakh people worldwide every year. More than 50% of regular smokers would invariably die from tobacco-related illnesses which includes heart attack, cancer or asthmatic lung diseases. Best age to stop smoking is before 40 31st May is “World No Tobacco Day” Quitting smoking before the age of 40 is associated with larger decline in premature death than stopping it at a later date. Best age therefore to stop smoking is before 40. However, stopping smoking even after the age of 50 is still associated with lower risk of death as compared to those who continue to smoke. Even in smokers aged 80 years or more, quitting smoking appears to reduce some mortality.

You are a suicide attempter and luckily you have not succeeded. The fact, that this guy loves you, albeit not enough to marry you against the wishes of his parents is an indication that you are lovable. You are probably into an anger related depression for all of the reasons you mention but do not turn that anger towards yourself. If this guy is not willing to marry you, just move on and find another guy who will be stronger in his resolve. This is a set up for failure as it stands, and you will get more disturbed and depressed when it really happens. Right now there seems to be no hope of any reconciliation between the two families, and therefore between you two too. If you love yourself you will not tolerate any of this nonsense with this boy and wait unnecessarily for some kind of unforeseeable outcome. Your life is very precious to you at least, and unless you show that to others (including this boy) he will not have that regard for you. Work on your depression with a counselor and sort out your personal issues and work towards building yourself up and making a fabulous personality with what you already have. Suitable boys will come flocking after you!

If you are able to attach a positive meaning to your hard work then there's a way to be motivated and study again. Imagine how successful and happy you will be after clearing and getting a good job. You will be able to achieve some of your goals and dreams and some, friends, young cousin or sibling might be inspired by your hard work. Humans always want to live happily and achieve something in life and have influence on others so that they feel important and acceptable in society. If your friendship and phone can find you long lasting happiness and satisfaction then do that by all means. You can only decide what is the best for you. Take care.

Dear, socially accepted sexual practices and socially unaccepted sexual practices exist in the same society. Your case socially unaccepted. That never means you are doing something wrong. There are many areas where we do not do or restrict our self from doing something which is socially unacceptable. In this case too, you have to restrict yourself. Please do not be anxious about it, but you should restrict. Take care.

All problems are actually solvable although we may not have as yet found the solution. You are both in it together and life will continue to throw challenges at you, again and again. Each time you overcome a particular situation you will indeed feel proud. In order to face a problem of any kind, unity is essential and if you two bicker with each other you will not be able to tackle this financial situation at all. Your strength lies in your togetherness. So please do meet with a marriage counselor and get help about being together and facing life. You will need a third person's involvement. Love is the key to any relationship. Your love looks like it has been shattered by monetary considerations. You cannot give into this in place of love. Please renew your love for each other. I am also certain that faith and spirituality is not an integral part of your life: therefore the struggle. In the bargain it is a good opportunity to renew your faith in the one above. If you are a christian, I am really shocked by your desperation. I have always said this in some sermons I have given: that the person who reads the bible daily and prays daily will never contemplate suicide. This is an absolute truth: the bible is life-giving. Go meet a pastor too and build your faith with renewed vigor: god is always waiting to help you, if you have faith and are obedient to him.

Its quite normal to feel sad and feel depressed sometimes. Accept the reality. Most of the times people recover normalcy over time as the routine duties resume. So have faith and share your feelings with people who are close to you and get back to regular rhythm slowly.

How to treat anxiety? I want to cure and why my left side of stomach downward to chest is paining?
You must go for counseling soon. Counseling will help in training you will skills and techniques to cope with the daily challenges in life and will give you a fair chance to manage your life. You must also develop your constitution to make it fit enough to cope with fear, felt many times unnecessarily. You may be taking normal fear and converting it into abnormal fear like anxiety and so on. Take care of the following: Mental stability can be achieved by learning a few skills in handling emotions in an appropriate manner. Stress management skills, which have a lot to do with expressing emotions, will need to be a major part of your recovery program. Emotionally you need the help of a counselor and that will help you tremendously to move from anxiety to normal fear. Please persevere and cooperate through all the support you need and you will come through successfully. Develop your body’s health by physical fitness through exercise, good rest (sleep), and a proper diet. Any way what you need to focus on is to do vigorous exercise of the aerobic kind for the heart’s fitness; meditation for the brain’s fitness; sleep for a well rested mind and body; a sound spiritual well being for good confidence and stability; and a diet with lots of vegetables, fruits, and whole grains. Vigorous exercise, especially of the callisthenic kind, will make your heart, which is a muscle, grow larger; and then your heart will need to beat less often and you will respond to the anxiety with a calmer disposition. If your mind, constitution, and your emotions are in check and fit, you will never be disturbed again. The earlier you tackle this, the easier it is going to be. You are young and you can treat your stomach disorder and anxiety at the same time with good results.

Dear, sleep is a blessing. If a person is able to sleep about 6 hours per day without any disturbance, he is considered blessed. I see you are stressed because of your job. The body rhytm must have changed because of the sleep schedule. You must be able to distinguish between mental disease and mental disorder. Your problem is a mental disorder. Not a mental disease. These mental disorders are usually treated with a combination of medicines and other means like awareness, meditation, psychotherapy techniques, life style changes etc. I think two or three counseling sessions and psycho therapy techniques should solve your problem. Let me know if you are willing to undergo counseling sessions and tailor made psycho therapy through mobile. Take care.

How to reduce obesity at high level and how it is related to tension enhancing. Please explain me?

How to reduce obesity at high level and how it is related to tension enhancing. Please explain me?
You may be into emotional eating for this weight gain. Whenever you are in tension, sometimes it may be depression, then you will tend to eat more to deal with the tension. You need to identify the emotion that is behind the excessive eating: are you sad, angry, afraid or happy that you tend to want to eat every time? When you have done that it is as simple as addressing the feeling that feeds into the over-eating and you will cease to have a problem. This can be done with a counselor, ideally. Many of us over-eat when emotionally distraught. You are already over-weight. Apart from that it is likely that your metabolism might have reduced considerably making you susceptible to gain weight even with small quantities of food. If you still want to eat (I mean healthy food of course), you can consume more, if you did some noteworthy exercise, after getting approval from your doctor. Exercise boosts your metabolic rate. Foods also boost metabolism: egg whites, lean meat, water, chili peppers, coffee, green tea, milk, whole grains, and lentils. Cucumber is a zero calorie food and takes long to digest and much metabolism too. If you have it before each meal and any amount too, it will curb the amount of consumption. Even so, the addictive aspect of eating involves the obsession and compulsion i.e. your mind will be always thinking about food and then it will feed into a compulsion to consume something. So, if you occupy yourself, (not busy) then the mind will not think too much on food and therefore it will negate the compulsion. Meet with a counselor and be very cooperative to true success.
