How do I help someone who is realised to the fact that the boy she was going to marry in a months time does not want to marry because he has commitment phobia.

I lost my classmate last year in a tragic accident. From then I feel very depressed. Please help.

I lost my classmate last year in a tragic accident. From then I feel very depressed. Please help.
Loosing someone close is very tough emotionally. Sometimes persistent grief leads to depression as it causes constant stress response in your body. You may want to see a psychologist or a counselor for few weeks to break the thought pattern that you are having right now and begin a positive pattern. I would also advice to try following things as you are young and stress is present in our daily life these days. Building resilience will go a long way and help you cope up with many life circumstances. Building your resilience will also help you manage your stress and help in depression. Try following things to learn relaxation response which leads to better coping mechanism on a daily basis. To begin with doing guided progressive muscular relaxation before sleeping will help you relax. You could google and download an audio file. I would also suggest you to take a multiple small break to take 3 nice and deep breath while keeping your eyes closed. You could do this while sitting or standing or while even walking or climbing stairs (keep your eyes open in that case). When you take a nice and deep break there is actual physiological change in your body. This will help you to activate parasympathetic nervous system which promotes relaxation and helps you calm down and think more clearly. This will also actually improve your performance in your work. Along with this exercise is one of the best way to relive stress and stay fit. Engage in any kind of physical activity at least 4 times a week. This also helps in stress reduction. Along with this some relaxation exercises as well as engaging in joyful activities such as music, singing, dancing, reading, being in nature, gardening, talking with friends or anything which you enjoy will help reducing stress and rejuvenation of your mind and body. Have good routine for sleep and eating. Lot of research has now proven that sugar is very harmful for our health. Reduce sugar and refined white floor in your diet as much as you could. Along with this also increase consumption of raw vegetables in the form of salad in both the meals of your day. Hope this helps. Wishing you very best.

Being Good in Bed takes much more than Knowing good Kamasutra Skills

Being Good in Bed takes much more than Knowing good Kamasutra Skills
"Focussing only on sexual intimacy is unhelpful unless you have an emotional compatibility with your partner. This is because, good relationship and good sexual intimacy are very closely linked to each other.
Here are three top tips to help improve couple compatibility.

*Make time and Talk to Each Other: Share your day with your partner. Talk about the good things that happened, the challenges you faced and anything that strengthens the mental bond.

*Stop Criticizing: this is Something that couples desperately need to work upon. You don't have to be harsh while telling your complaints given the fact you'd have to wake up right next to your partner every day. Try converting your complaints into requests for change in them.

*Help Each Other in Your work:
Just extend your helping hand to help your partner in the things that they do. Sometimes, saying ""I am here for you"" is good enough for the person."

Dear lybrate-user. Welcome to lybrate. I can understand. Loosing someone near and dear is called grief and depression related to grief is pretty normal. But this sort of depression does not stay for long. This depression gets cleared within a span of some weeks. The best option for you is to undergo counseling and depression related therapy. Take care.

Drinking a cup or two throughout the day can be relaxing, but this much is bad for you. Coffee and tea are dehydrating and addictive. Whenever you have an urge to have coffee, have a glass of water and have some fruit or light snack instead. That would have a better impact and help you concentrate better, without harming. Having this much coffee actually kills your appetite.

I have a habit of smoking. I want to quit it. Do I need any medicine to stop smoking?

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Kolkata
Many a times clients make up their mind only to loose motivation midway. Make sure you don't do the same. Before medicines, try this. Set a quit date and keep on decreasing till that day. Abstain from smoking from the quit date. You may face withdrawal once you completely stop smoking. If you can't control withdrawals meet a psychiatrist for medicines. There is a high chance you can do it without medicines. Just see that the quit date is not too far away.

Headaches is something which is very tricky. It is one of the commonest physical symptom arising due to inability to cope with excessive stress. But it is something which can be a presentation of grave medical illness as well. This is why you should get yourself evaluated to rule out any physical cause of headache. If they are ruled out managing stress by pharmacological and non-pharmacological methods is recommended.

Alcohol dependence involves intense craving or desire to drink alcohol. People drink for pleasure or rationalize it on external factors like family problems, work tension, etc. They drink continuously, i.e. Almost daily or even weekly once or twice with withdrawal symptoms, tolerance, bodily damage, etc. They need to be brought for de addiction which involves You need to consult a psychiatrist and go for 3 steps of de addiction. 1st is detoxification, when alcohol is stopped and the withdrawal is made smooth with minimal discomfort, 2 nd is maintenance and further deaddiction when the physical problems and psychological state of the individual is maintained and anti-craving drugs started 3 rd rehabilitation, when relapse prevention is the goal, while maintaining deaddiction.

Yes this is clearly a sign of addiction. It is a type of'procedural addiction' masturabation gives you the same high (dopamine high) that a drug of abuse would give. It is safe when it's done under control. You seem to be getting excessively and easily aroused. You need to exert control over your arousal, not on masturabation. When you get sexual thoughts distract your mind with something neutral. Make a list of distractions, like listening to a song, calling someone, thinking about a non arousing topic, looking at different things in the surroundings, etc. Do not go to a place where you can relieve yourself, because every time you do it, your brain gets a'kick' and this action becomes more reinforced. It will reduce gradually. There are medicines available for hyper sexuality, that you can take temporarily while you practice more self-control. Visit a psychiatrist for complete guidance.
