Dear lybrate-user, There is no relation between poor concentration and masturbation. Masturbation is just a way to release sexual excitement. Although poor concentration is a symptom of depression along with other symptom. You need an evaluation from psychiatrist. Good medicine with best results are available now. Consult psychiatrist we will certainly help you. Till then share your feeling with good friend or family member. Do brisk walking in the morning for 30 min. Try to maintain your sleep and wakeup time. These lifestyle changes will help you.

Sir I have problems that I am not feeling good i am suffering from anxiety so please help me.
Anxiety is a protective mechanism of the body. It prepares us for impending dangers or tasks. A little bit of anxiety is always beneficial for performance. However uncontrolled anxiety can impair performances adversely. If you feel your anxiety impairs your day to day activity or performance in general, then you should not hesitate for treatment under a psychiatrist. The treatment may include counselling, behaviour techniques to tackle anxiety and medications if required. Consult online for further assistance.

I am a love failure my girlfriend she just gone leaving me alone I am feeling very depressed what should I do please tell me.

I am a love failure my girlfriend she just gone leaving me alone I am feeling very depressed what should I do please ...
You've not fallen in love; you always rise in love. Love is beautiful only when it is mutual or both ways. In your situation, she probably didn't love you enough or fell out of love; consider it her loss. Don't get these heavy words and feelings like "depressed" come your way. Remember, life goes on. I know it is easier said than done but Time is a Healer. You will get over her soon, you just need to make attempts and efforts to distract yourself, go out, meet friends, do activities you are passionate about. You have a long life and a true love awaiting you in future! Good luck :)

My dadi expired all family members are in depression please help what to do in this situation.
Hi, this phase is called bereavement (depression). This is very common for all people who lost their dear ones. It may be there for 6 months depending upon the affection you had with person. Focus them to take fresh juice first, some small house hold activity, being with small kid, some pet in your home, accepting the loss, all the above makes the difference in your family life.

Hi my self Nazeer, I have short temper memory problem, I have taken many medicine but no changes. What should I do.

Masters in Clinical Psychology
Psychologist, Lucknow
Hi lybrate-user, Do the following: 1. Think before you speak In the heat of the moment, it's easy to say something you'll later regret. Take a few moments to collect your thoughts before saying anything — and allow others involved in the situation to do the same. 2. Once you're calm, express your anger As soon as you're thinking clearly, express your frustration in an assertive but nonconfrontational way. State your concerns and needs clearly and directly, without hurting others or trying to control them. 3. Get some exercise Physical activity can help reduce stress that can cause you to become angry. If you feel your anger escalating, go for a brisk walk or run, or spend some time doing other enjoyable physical activities. 4. Take a timeout Give yourself short breaks during times of the day that tend to be stressful. A few moments of quiet time might help you feel better prepared to handle what's ahead without getting irritated or angry. 5. Identify possible solutions Instead of focusing on what made you mad, work on resolving the issue at hand. Remind yourself that anger won't fix anything and might only make it worse.

Ways To Deal With Hypochondriasis!

MBBS
General Physician, Durg
Ways To Deal With Hypochondriasis!

People who are constantly troubled by the fear of physical illness or who excessively feel worried about their health are commonly referred to as hypochondriacs. This phenomenon is called somatic symptom disorder, also known as hypochondria or hypochondriasis. Despite the evidence of medical tests proving that they do not suffer from any disease or illness, hypochondriacs are perpetually worried about their health. This is mainly because of their misinterpretation of minor health problems or normal body functions as something serious. Somatic symptom disorder affects both males and females equally, and it usually happens during early adulthood.

Causes and symptoms: Their complaints may range from minor issues like pain or stress to more serious problems concerning breathing or headaches. Hypochondriacs rarely try to deceive themselves, and they genuinely believe that they have health problems, however unrealistic their beliefs might be. The exact causes are indefinite and unknown, but they generally arise from considerable physical or sexual abuse in their early childhood. Moreover, parents or close relatives suffering from the disorder may also induce such fears into the child, who would eventually behave in a similar pattern later in adulthood.

Diagnosis: Diagnosis of the disorder can be very troublesome, mainly because of their inherent conviction that they are suffering from physical illness. However, the disorder can be treated through proper supportive care or psychotherapy. Antidepressants and anti-anxiety drugs are also used sometimes.

Dealing with the disorder: Hypochondria can often lead to a chronic condition, which can be long lasting. Although there are no definite ways of preventing it, there is one method to reduce the intensity of the symptoms and help patients cope up with the disorder. It is by providing them a supportive and understanding environment, one in which they can fight the distress and trouble that comes along with the somatic symptom disorder. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a General Physician.

Dear lybrate-user. Please understand there are no short cuts to cure the performance anxiety on bed. This happens because of over expectation. But the more you try to cure it, the more it worsens. That is the basic problem of any performance anxiety. So keep this in mind. Approach it coolly. If not today, tomorrow it will be ok. If you want an" immediate cure" it worsens. Take care.

Dear lybrate user, this happens when u r too anxious about exams or u r not focusing well. Study when ur mind is fresh, rehearsing is important. After reading a stanza think over it and picturize d concept in ur mind. Dont just go on reading go to d roots, to d concept. Draw notes. Do yoga and meditation daily Take good sleep Take balanced diet. Those were some tips to memorise, follow those well and consult privately for homoeopathic treatment.

Dear, 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.

I am suffering from marital discord and my wife hardly communicates when my parents are around. She leaves home at her own will. I am not finding any source of happiness in my marriage of 5 years.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
This is a long-standing factor, repeated and confirmed as very critical to sustain a marriage: communication. When there is no communication, there is danger that the union will collapse. You must immediately reach out to a marriage counselor and both of you must attend the sessions. If she is unwilling, you at least go and seek help as to how to make something happen from your side. Ideally, it would best for both to attend, but she may not cooperate like you have indicated. Sometimes you have to take matters in your own hands to do the right things. Passivity under these circumstances is criminal. Be firm but with love. Even when she does not talk, you can initiate conversations in subtle ways, skirting controversial issues and gradually improving and increasing non-threatening dialogues. For example, ignore the non-communication during your parents? visits but as soon as they are gone and she is open to some talking, discuss matters of the house, children, her work or yours, old friends etc. There are so many topics that are easy for conversing about. Your parents, don? t forget, are her in-laws. There is a host of problems between mother-in-law and daughter-in-law universally, that it is referred to as a syndrome. If you discus controversies with her, you will be pressing the wrong buttons. Don? t even bother about your parents being respected, if you want to save your marriage. In fact, you can tell them not to visit for some time until something positive happens between you two. You must be ingenious without it being obvious. If you play the cards right, you can make conducive communication happen in your marriage as though you had never had a problem at all!

You should learn to enjoy your job. You are giving 100% but you are not passionate about your job. You take the examples of scientists, who are not aware of time when they research. Once you become passionate, you don't feel mentally stressed. You may post a detailed private querty to me (for a fee) and I shall provide you some tips.

How can you avoid stress

M.B.S.(HOMEO), MD - Homeopathy

How can you avoid stress
Speak up. Not being able to talk about your needs and concerns creates stress and can make negative feelings worse. Assertive communication can help you express how you feel in a thoughtful, tactful way.
Ask for help. People who have a strong network of family and friends manage stress better.
Sometimes stress is just too much to handle alone. Talking to a friend or family member may help, but you may also want to see a counselor.

Hello doctors. My age is 30 unmarried men one day I met a person. Both of us travelling in same bus became frnds and exchanged phone no. S we met 2-3 times for casual talking while talking he supposed to touch here and there one day he touched my organ I thought its accidental touch but he supposed to touch regularly am also feeling good and I was also enjoying. And it turned to masturbate each other. I was shocked by seeing his penis with 7-8 inches fat healthy penis comparing with my penis it is 3-4 times huge. I was attracted and not able to forget him. But didnt have any type of sex with him only mastrubation. From last 6-7 months I realised it was wrong and am not talking with him now I changed my phone no. And aware of him. Now a days iam getting feeling to watch men's bulge is it homosex symptoms or comparing penis size am not understanding. I need counselling are treatment.

You are suffering from inferiority complex. Like women are obsessed of the size of their breasts, men are for penis. This is due to all stress and worries. You are having insecurities and fear of married life and size of penis. Just relax and have a positive self-talk, you need to accept your self and move on. You need to take care of your lifestyle and learn to be happy. If you cant do it yourself, meet a life coach/ stress management super-specialist like me. Once you open your heart out, you will feel free and begin to fly in life.
