You are into an abusive relationship and there may be other problems that make you still remain in such love with the abuser. You may be needing abuse as a way of feeling wanted anyway! The boy does not sound a suitable match for you. But if you are still unable to come out of this relationship I suggest you meet with a counselor and get some guidance as to how you can deal with this situation. There must be love, respect, and commitment, and he must bring out the best in you. You are not even prepared for he exams and busy caught up with boy who is causing the depression. It sounds all wrong and you must either get out of this relationship or go for counseling.

What kind of pill would be best for a severe stress, anxiety level and also help with depression?
Sir, instead of using any Pill - go for a complete detox of ur body with the help of ayurveda's Panchakarma therapy. It includes Abhyangam (Massage with medicated oils) n medicated steam bath. this wud rejuvenate ur body - improving ur work efficiency and bettering ur sleep. It will also strengthen ur nerves and muscles. These procedures will take out the harmful toxins out of ur body - cleansing ur body. Also take Shirodhara which would completely take the stress out of ur body and u will feel light, fresh and full of energy.

Recently in sonography I found out that I have renal agenesis. My right kidney is absent. I never had any problem related to excretion. The ultrasound technician told that it is very normal. What all things should I avoid? What are the things that I shouldn't do? What about having alcohol?

Significance of Sexual Health and Mental Health

MS Human Sexuality, M.Phil Clinical Psychology, PhD (Behaviour Modification), Certified In Treatment of Resistant Depression
Sexologist, Hyderabad
Significance of Sexual Health and Mental Health

Does a struggle with mental illness mean losing one’s cherished sexuality? No, it certainly doesn’t. But many people struggle far more than necessary because they don’t have the information and support they need to address the challenges that can arise around sex and mental well-being.

Sex is a matter of mind

We often think of sex as something our bodies are doing, but a lot of our sex life takes place in our brains. It’s important to realize that, for all genders, our thoughts and feelings play a vital role in getting us turned on and keeping us that way.

Anxiety or depression can strongly affect arousal and can definitely ruin the mood sometimes. Anxiety and other related mental health struggles can make it hard to be relaxed enough to have or enjoy sex, overshadowing it with a host of worries or intrusive distractions. When we are very unwell and struggling just to function, sex is rarely at the top of our mind.

The struggle with mental illness in a variety of forms can hurt a person’s self-esteem and make them feel unworthy of sexual attention. For example, a person may have an unrealistic view of their own body and may actively seek to deny or discipline the body as a way of coping. In these cases, it’s important to be critical of the beauty norms we are shown by the media, step away from the practice of measuring or defining ourselves, and to seek to rediscover our love and appreciation for our bodies and our sexual selves.

Substance use may put limitations or restrictions upon one’s sexual interest. Some drugs can affect your brain in ways that make you less able to feel pleasure from sex for periods of time after their use.

Substance use can be a problem when it leads to sexual behaviours one may not feel proud of. Under the influence of drugs, you may do things that you regret, such as having sex with someone you wouldn’t have while sober, or doing things you normally might be uncomfortable with; such as being filmed or photographed during sex, or having sex in public spaces. These personal-boundary transgressions can lead to shame and loss of self-esteem and cause conflict in relationships.

Additionally, addiction or mental health problems like mania may be associated with intentionally seeking risky situations such as having unprotected sex with strangers or seeking ever escalating levels of violence, humiliation, and bodily harm (both in real life and in the pornography one is consuming). This can impact a person’s ability to find interest in having sex with their steady partner, because the sought-after thrill or risk is no longer present.

When you become an ally to your partner and deepen your communication, your sex life is certain to benefit. Great sex is often based on great connection, and by working on your communication you are nurturing that connection.

we are all entitled to knowledge about our sexuality and that good scientific knowledge about sex is necessary for us to be able to make informed sexual choices. By educating ourselves, whether we are young or old, we can make sex better for everyone.

We all have a right to enjoy and appreciate our sexuality. Do your best to not let mental illness steal that away from you and the ones you love!

Cognitive behavioural therapy will be helpful. Pay attention to your breath. Challenge negative thinking and unrealistic expectations. Challenge your fear of others by making face to face contact with friendly people. Use sensory input relaxing and uplifting music to calm urself.

Respected doctors, I am too depressed, it all began with the month of April. Till March I was a normal person. I do things repeatedly, washing hands about a hundred times. Checking calculations in exams about 10 times even if I know that the result is correct. Washing clothes for no reason driven by the fear of contamination. All this has ruined my health, time and studies. Please help me get out of this before it gets transformed in my other ways of life. It disturbs my sleep and my mental peace. Unable to focus on my studies.

What you are discribing are symptoms of obsessive cumplesive disorder. It is caused by a complex interaction of genetics, environment, personality, and stressors. As you have observed the symptoms recently, I would suggest you to co silt a physician at your earliest. In your case it is very much likely thst you would be able to co troll the symptoms and lead a normal. Life again. The two main treatments for ocd are psychotherapy and medications. Often, treatment is most effective with a combination of these. Exposure and response prevention (erp) therapy is one of the most effective treatment. This therapy involves gradually exposing you to your fear and having you learn healthy ways to cope with your anxiety. Exposure therapy takes effort and practice, but you may enjoy a better quality of life once you learn to manage your obsessions and compulsions. Therapy may take place in individual, family or group sessions.

What are the side effects of antidepressant? what is alternative therapy for anxiety disorder?
Hello sir, which antidepressant are you currently taking? as such every antidepressant will have its own specific side effects but in general antidepressants prescribed for anxiety disorders belong to category of ssri. They all have common side effects like nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, worsening anxiety, reduced sleep etc. Which occur only for first 1-2 weeks. After which body starts adapting & these problems disappear. Alternate therapy for anxiety disorder depends on the type of disorder you are suffering. You can get back to me for further help. Good luck.
