Hi, I am a regular smoker I have been smoking from last 5 years I guess but yesterday something unusual happened with me as I came home after smoking. I saw blood coming out of my nose is that a serious issue or it happens with everyone?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
It is serious and must be investigated to know what is the damage and the likely cause. You have been smoking from the age of 15 years and so the damage for teenagers is more because your nerves were still forming and completing its formation. You have not mentioned the quantity of cigarettes consumed but it is certain to have increased over the years to be in excess. You need to stop smoking immediately and visit the doctor to check on this bleeding.

You may be suffering with Bipolar or Unipolar Depression. It is important to consult a Psychiatrist in person, as an accurate diagnosis is prelude to correct treatment. The usual treatment for Unipolar Depression can be detrimental in case of Bipolar depression.

Dear Lybrate user. You are not a psycho for sure. This is habitual. There is nothing wrong about it. This is just because you carry the "teaching" to your home. You should shrug "teaching" off at the school itself. I suggest an hour of outdoor games to shrug off "teaching" after coming back from your school. Within a week your problem will be solved. Take care.

Hello, ajeet, I can understand your worry, this is a problematic condition and most of the men do come across this problem. Sexual problems do have a treatment. Chronic illness do contribute to loss of libido, reduced interest in sexual activities, premature ejaculation as well. Though their are no structural anomalies detected by psychological factors can also contribute to these conditions. Most common psychological factors includes: depressive states, anxiety states, acute stress, relational issues, burnout etc. Few medications also can contribute to such states such antiviral, interferons, betablockers etc. Hence to get a complete picture about your problems, a detailed evaluation is necessary. Also this will help in formulating a management plan comprising of both pharmacological approach as well as psychological interventions, so that you can get recover in a better way and can have a better functional life ahead.

Homoeopathic medicine ACONITE NAP 1M ( Dr Reckeweg) Drink 5 drops today night itself and forget this medicine now for 15 days P.L.30 .Ask the homoeopathic pharmacit to prepare thi medicine 2 drahm in 30 number globules and tart taking 4 tabs 3 timess daily for 15 days starting from omorrow. Report me after 15 days With some time and practice (this is not an overnight phenomenon), you too can be a self-confident person, both inside and out, whom others admire. 1. Stay away from negativity and bring on the positivity This is the time to really evaluate your inner circle, including friends and family. This is a tough one, but it's time to seriously consider getting away from those individuals who put you down and shred your confidence.Be positive, even if you're not feeling it quite yet. Put some positive enthusiasm into your interactions with others and hit the ground running, excited to begin your next project. Stop focusing on the problems in your life and instead begin to focus on solutions and making positive changes. 2. Change your body language and image This is where posture, smiling, eye contact, and speech slowly come into play. Just the simple act of pulling your shoulders back gives others the impression that you are a confident person. Smiling will not only make you feel better, but will make others feel more comfortable around you. Imagine a person with good posture and a smile and you'll be envisioning someone who is self-confident. Look at the person you are speaking to, not at your shoes--keeping eye contact shows confidence. Last, speak slowly. Research has proved that those who take the time to speak slowly and clearly feel more self-confidence and appear more self-confident to others. The added bonus is they will actually be able to understand what you are saying. Go the extra mile and style your hair, give yourself a clean shave, and dress nicely. Not only will this make you feel better about yourself, but others are more likely to perceive you as successful and self-confident as well. A great tip: When you purchase a new outfit, practice wearing it at home first to get past any wardrobe malfunctions before heading out. 3. Don't accept failure and get rid of the negative voices in your head Never give up. Never accept failure. There is a solution to everything, Low self-confidence is often caused by the negative thoughts running through our minds on an endless track. If you are constantly bashing yourself and saying you're not good enough, aren't attractive enough, aren't smart enough or athletic enough, and on and on, you are creating a self-fulfilling prophecy. You are becoming what you are preaching inside your head, and that's not good. The next time you hear that negativity in your head, switch it immediately to a positive affirmation and keep it up until it hits the caliber of a self-confidence boost. 4. Be prepared Learn everything there is to know about your field, job, presentation--whatever is next on your "to conquer" list. If you are prepared, and have the knowledge to back it up, your self-confidence will soar. 5. For tough times, when all else fails: Create a great list Life is full of challenges and there are times when it's difficult to keep our self-confidence up. Sit down right now and make a list of all the things in your life that you are thankful for, and another list of all the things you are proud of accomplishing. Once your lists are complete, post them on your refrigerator door, on the wall by your desk, on your bathroom mirror--somewhere where you can easily be reminded of what an amazing life you have and what an amazing person you really are. If you feel your self-confidence dwindling, take a look at those lists and let yourself feel and be inspired all over again by you.

Me 30 year old woman. I am separated but don't feel sad for that nowadays. Still sometimes I become depressed for 3 to 4 days and become emotionally vulnerable every month.

5 Ways to Fight Depression If you feel depressed, it's best to do something about it — depression doesn't just go away on its own. In addition to getting help from a doctor or therapist, here are 5 things you can do to feel better. 1.Exercise. Take a 15- to 30-minute brisk walk every day — or dance, jog, or bike if you prefer. People who are depressed may not feel much like being active. In addition to getting aerobic exercise, some yoga poses can help relieve feelings of depression. Two other aspects of yoga — breathing exercises and meditation — can also help people with depression feel better. 2.Nurture yourself with good nutrition. Depression can affect appetite. One person may not feel like eating at all, but another might overeat. Proper nutrition can influence a person's mood and energy. So eat plenty of fruits and vegetables and get regular meals (even if you don't feel hungry, try to eat something light, like a piece of fruit, to keep you going). 3.Identify troubles, but don't dwell on them. Try to identify any situations that have contributed to your depression. When you know what's got you feeling blue and why, talk about it with a caring friend. Talking is a way to release the feelings and to receive some understanding. 4. Express yourself. With depression, a person's creativity and sense of fun may seem blocked. Exercise your imagination (painting, drawing, doodling, sewing, writing, dancing, composing music, etc.) and you not only get those creative juices flowing, you also loosen up some positive emotions. Take time to play with a friend or a pet, or do something fun for yourself. Find something to laugh about — a funny movie, perhaps. Laughter helps lighten your mood. 5. Try to notice good things. Depression affects a person's thoughts, making everything seem dismal, negative, and hopeless. If depression has you noticing only the negative, make an effort to notice the good things in life. Try to notice one thing, then try to think of one more. Consider your strengths, gifts, or blessings. Most of all, don't forget to be patient with yourself. Depression takes time to heal. If you are happy with these answers please click on "useful” link so that I can know my efforts are not wasted. If you want more clarifications or prescription for medicines consult me on this site to ask me directly and not in open questions session It's not easy to say exactly what causes depression and anxiety – it's different for everyone. Sometimes a difficult time in you or your mates' life can set off depression or anxiety, sometimes it's caused by a combination of things that has built up over time and sometimes, there's just no obvious cause at all.

I have a boyfriend and I am in the relation for about 5 years. He is very serious about me and loves me truly. But I feel disrespected most of the times. I feel I am not given the importance. There are many incidents which make me feel so. He never admits his mistakes. Never apologises. He does not take any efforts to convince me or try to talk to me when m angry or upset. On the other hand I take extra efforts when he is angry. He just ignores talking to me in that situation. When hes out with his friends I give him all his space and do not disturb him in betn by my calls or msgs. Only thing I tell him is to cum home early at least by 12 or 12: 30 am. But he never listens to me. It really irritates me. If I talk to him calmly about my issues he is always upto proving himself right. I wait for him till 3 am just to see if he reaches home safely but even if I call him hes very casual and does not respect or appreciate what I do for him. I have already been in tough stages of life since I lost my Brother. I really get frustrated sad and upset most of the times. I get worried about the future. Kindly advice me on how to make him realize my worth. How to control getting angry and be casual if he does not listen to me.

Dear lybrate-user, Thank you for contacting Lybrate. I understand your concern about WET DREAMS and I can see that you are concerned about its effect on your career. Let me tell you that night emissions of semen or ‘wet dreams’ are normal events. Semen is being manufactured by your genital organs continuously; it has to be expelled by some means. This situation is just akin to a glass of full water to which you add more water, with the logical result that it overflows! This happens to semen too. If one neither has sex nor masturbation for long time, semen gets expelled in the form of night emissions, which is normal. This is not an illness or disease. No need to consult doctor for this. No need of any medication as this is not an illness. When one engages in regular sexual activity with partner or masturbation, the night emissions will be decreased or disappear. You can definitely go for career of your choice. Wet dreams do not cause any difficulty in this regard. You may get counseling with psychiatrist or sexologist for it. If you have any further questions I will be happy to help. Wish you good health and bright career.

Dear Sain Langthasa, Thanks for the question. I can understand. You are YOU. Whatever your behavior today, whatever your body language today are learned from your past experiences and social interactions. Whatever you have learned can be unlearned or over written. This is a continuous process happening throughout your life. I suggest cognitive behavior therapy for you. Take care.

DHMS (Diploma in Homeopathic Medicine and Surgery)
Homeopath, Ludhiana
Cigratte contains Nicotine and Nicotine is a vasoconstrictor, meaning it tightens blood vessels and restricts blood flow. In the long term, it has even been shown to cause permanent damage to arteries. Since a man's erection depends on blood flow, it is assumed smoking would affect erections. Studies have confirmed this time and again.It has been proved that just two cigarettes could cause softer erections in male smokers and one of the main reason for ED ( Erectile Dysfunction) is smoking habitually. There is also a correlation between men affected by impotence and smoking.

My father drinks alcohol day and night. Is there any way to stop him from drinking alcohol.

MBBS, MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Mumbai
Alcohol dependence is associated with significant physical, mental and social problems. Physically, there can be liver failure, jaundice, vomiting of blood, passing blood in stools, stomach ulcers, damage to nerves of the body, swelling of legs, fluid collection in abdomen, and many more. Mentally, there is irreversible brain damage, worsening of anxiety or depression, triggering of psychosis and mood disorders, dementia, etc. From a social point of view, there may be isolation from neighbors or family, increased abusive behavior to children or spouses, legal problems, accidents, etc. Anti craving medications are available which will help to reduce the craving. Consult a psychiatrist with experience in deaddiction.

I do smoking on regular basis I want to leave but can not suggest me what step should I take to leave smoking permanently.

BHMS
Homeopath,
Dear lybrate user, you may need a bit of willpower to stop smoking permanently. You could easily abstain yourself from smoking during the initial 2-3 days. But after few days of abstaining from smoking you will feel a strong craving to smoke a cigarette whenever you face any tense situation. Here lies your real test. You will need a lot of willpower to resist that craving & face any tense situation without the help of nicotine. However, you can take homoeopathic mother tincture daphne indica q, 30 drops, thrice daily, after meals, in a cup of water. This medicine will help to reduce your craving for nicotine.

Doctor says I have simple schizophrenia, I need to confirm. I am currently taking levosulpiride, Clox (brand name) and omega 3,6,9 tabs. According to these information, what mental disorder or not I have?

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Guwahati
If you have doubt in your mind regarding your diagnosis, get yourself re-evaluated by a Psychiatrist, who will make the proper diagnosis based on your mental status examination & psychological test like Psycho-diagnostic evaluation. & if you are diagnosed to be suffering from a mental disorder, it will be best for you to accept the fact that you are suffering from the disorder, stay under regular supervision of your attending doctor, & adhere to treatment. Educate yourself adequately regarding the diagnosed illness, its symptoms etc. & if any doubt regarding the illness or its treatment come to your mind, always discuss with your attending doctor &/or family member, & do not take any decision alone. There are treatments available for mental disorders & a person with such disorders can lead a normal life on treatment. Along with, lead an active life, eat healthy diet, sleep adequately & stay away from substances of abuse like alcohol, tobacco etc. & stay positive about life. If it is difficult for you to accept the illness or you are not able to cope with it, then you can go for counseling sessions.

My age is 23 yrs. Preparing for govt. Exams for last 2 years ,my exams are in next few weeks and this is going to be my last attempt as I already wasted two precious years of my life. Still I don't feel like studying I am tensed and stressed I know if I fail this time also my life is going to be miserable .all people around me of my age group have a job but still I am not working hard to get a job for myself. I think l lost interest in these exams. I am not a hard working person .I don't feel like doing anything just sitting thinking negative ,getting frustrated and stressing unnecessary instead of studying. I think this year also I am not going to be selected. I am getting frustrated as I know I am not working hard so I won't be able to clear this time also. Nobody in my family can understand what I am feeling and going through. I have a lot of personality issues timid ,introvert ,negative thinking ,rigid ,poor communications skills (I cannot even talk to sales or customer care people ,imagine my level )and many more bad qualities. Also have no friends for like so many years .These two years also enhanced my personality problems as I mostly stayed indoors appearance wise also gained a lot of weight. Also when I think of other alternatives (if not selected) I feel I won't be able to sustain as I am low confident and not able to make friends .i hv a negative outlook of life and I feel everything in future is going to be negative. Not moving forward in life no growth just stagnant like a tree all the people / friends I use to know are doing wonderful things in their lives and growing each day and I'm still the same as I used to be. Right now I'm feeling depressed and hopeless. What should I do now?

Life is full of ups and down my friend. It has not happend to you only. It happens to many people but in a different ways. You just like others have many other options. Just relax and do not burden yourself. Every sucessfull person had worst times in his/her career or life. ITs part of life, take it as an experience. It is not the hard work which you can see and get results, it is also the consistency and sincerity which pays, may be a bit later, but it pays. Its your life, do not compare yourself with others. Your have different opportunities and problems than others. So what ever you are doing, if you think its not good, then simply stop doing that. It is as simple as that. Do not worry, you are just a kid. You have alot to learn. Stay positive. Stay in touch. Opt what you like. Do not be in a herd. Good luck.

Dear Lybrate user, At your age, Memory problems like amnesia are not common. Many young people are having problems with memory. These problems are either they are too busy or due to anxiety and stress. Busy people use organizers or employ a personal assistant because they can't remember every task. You need to understand this. If you still say, you are having memory problems, we need to check your memory using memory test. If you want more of my help in this regard, please contact me. Take care.

Dear, diagnosis is the key for any mental disorder. If proper diagnosis is made, proper treatment can be given and cure is almost sure. Otherwise things become bad. Even though doctors differ in their diagnosis, clinical psychologists / psychiatrists do not. Please consult a clinical psychologist or psychiatrist for proper diagnosis. Please do not exaggerate your symptoms thereby confusing those professionals. Take care.
