I feel very depressed and over obsessive about making things happen my way. Like a compulsion and impatience.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You need to identify what is the fear that is causing these difficulties. The obsession is a repeating thought pattern without solutions to them. This is a sign of insecurity that may stem from your past. You may not be sure of yourself in terms of decision making due to troubling conflict and confusion. This increases the fear. Also the control issue that you display by wanting things to happen only your way, is indicative of lack of trust coming from fear. In time you will lose patience and escalate anger over this fear and become violent. Then everyone will relate to your anger not realizing that your real feeling is in fact fear. Meet with a counselor and take help to deal with your fear. Exercise is excellent to build your physical constitution to cope with fear better.

This is all like madness: who would agree to marry such an older woman, with four kids, and your own aunt at that and now you are trying to push your personal agenda of insisting on sex. These are things that should have been discussed when they proposed this marriage itself and the matter could have been sorted out. If you knew why you married her in the first place you could answer your question of whether you should divorce her or not. If you think you still can live with her in spite of all this, then give her some time and develop some feelings between you two first. Marriage is not all about sex and if you focus on the other dimensions of the relationship you may win her over to consensual consummation happily. To me, all this sounds wrong to begin with and your consenting to the marriage itself is a matter of concern of poor thinking. Since your mom had convinced you at the outset, ask her opinion, though I think I know her response already and to some extent, I think I know what your response will be too. You need to grow up and make decisions for yoruself, then you would be responsible for them.

Dear lybrate-user, welcome to lybrate. Anger and aggression are emotions. Anger comes when you become irritated. Irritation happens when you don't like something, or when something is repeated. As anger is an emotion, it should be vent out. You should be able to throw anger out instead of controlling it. But more perfect will be, know the frustrating situations and stop being emotional. If practiced properly, you will not get irritated at those circumstances at all. Those techniques are much easier to understand. Please consult a psychologist online or in person for further advice. Take care.

MD - Homeopathy
Homeopath, Pimpri-Chinchwad
Depression And Homeopathy

Depression can be referred to as a psychiatric dysfunction which is generally associated with a recurrent feeling of sadness, loneliness, disinterest in daily affairs and low self-confidence. Due to the stresses of the modern lifestyle and constant anxiety the occurrence of depression is on the rise and it is affecting more people around the world.

Love disappointment, loss in business, disharmony in the family, performance pressure, death of a loved one, some unfortunate events in life, Domination, Abuse sexual and physical are one of the main reasons of depression. Homeopathy lauds the benefit that it does not induce drug dependency and no side effects.

Causes

Depression can spring up because of hereditary factors, excessive substance abuse, hormonal imbalances, sudden shock or trauma and also anxiety. Depression tends to be chronic and can come back in timely intervals to hamper your life.

Symptoms

The symptoms of depression include loss of appetite, a recurrent feeling of exhaustion, tendencies of isolating oneself continuously, significant trouble while sleeping, abrupt mood swings, lack of concentration in daily affairs and recurrent feeling of melancholy.

Homeopathic Treatment for Depression

Homeopathy is one of the most popular holistic systems of medicine. The selection of remedy is based upon the theory of individualization and symptoms similarity by using holistic approach. This is the only way through which a state of complete health can be regained by removing all the sign and symptoms from which the patient is suffering. The aim of homeopathy is not only to treat depression but to address its underlying cause and individual susceptibility. As far as therapeutic medication is concerned, several medicines are available for depression treatment that can be selected on the basis of cause, condition, sensation and modalities of the complaints. For individualized remedy selection and treatment, the patient should consult a qualified homeopathic doctor in person. Some important remedies are given below for depression treatment:

  1. Sepia – This medication is useful for people who face recurrent episodes of sudden mood swings and feelings of isolation. If someone gets depressed with the slightest of the matters, Sepia can also be helpful.
  2. Aurum Metallicum – If someone undergoes the symptoms of recurrent suicidal tendencies, hopelessness and a lowered self-confidence, this preparation can be recommended.
  3. Cimicifuga – Cimicifuga can be really useful if you undergo the symptoms of severe headache and neck pains during depression along with intense episodes of desolation.
  4. Causticum – If someone suffers from the symptoms of memory loss, frequent weeping and the depression had occurred due to the loss of someone close, Causticum can be recommended.
  5. Phosphoric acid – If you suffer from the symptoms of appetite loss and social awkwardness, a prescribed dosage of phosphoric acid might help in the elimination of the symptoms.
  6. Kalium Phosphoricum – This is a very important medication as it is very effective at treating depression that occurs due to stress. People who are overworked or students who have over-studied and may have developed depression from of stress are greatly benefitted by this medication.

These are just a few of the commonly used Homeopathic remedies and are mentioned only to create awareness about the effectiveness of Homeopathic medicines for Depression. It is not advisable to resort to self-medication for any disease. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a homeopath.

How to increase memory? Please answer me with patience? Sleep timing? Diet?Habit's?

BASM, MD, MS (Counseling & Psychotherapy), MSc - Psychology, Certificate in Clinical psychology of children and Young People, Certificate in Psychological First Aid, Certificate in Positive Psychology
Psychologist, Palakkad
Dear Lybrate user. I can understand. Memory and mind power depends on three aspects. Understanding, retention and recollection. Recollection is easy if your retention is proper and flawless. Retention is possible when you are able understand what you read or learn. To understand you should have concentration. Concentration comes from effective learning techniques based on creative and active learning. Physical exercise, outdoor games, entertainment, socializing coupled with systematic learning improves your memory and mind power. Vegetables, fruits and nuts are perfect for memory. Brain games like sudoku and jigsaw puzzles helps too. I suggest online education counseling. Take care.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

Since the boy is your son, kindly prevail on him to refrain from continuing this discord. Your daughter-in-law is the new person in your house, and must be treated with lots of love and respect. If your influence is not respected, then send them immediately to a marriage counselor and let them discuss this matter with the professional. In my opinion a marriage brings two families together and they must be equally respected. It is not a simple matter: respect is every man?s right. Why bring the family into disrepute or into their conflicts. In the Christian faith, we are very clear that when a man and woman marry, they become one flesh and must leave their father and mother and live by themselves. You must put your foot down, with your son in particular, that if they cannot respect their families, they can stay by themselves somewhere else. This might jolt them to a sensible reality. There is a risk but you cannot pussyfoot with this situation. The primary relationship for the couple is each other, then it is their children and then it is the parents. In any of these levels disrespect is never allowed or encouraged. Unnecessarily, they will need to stand for their own parents and make life miserable for themselves. In that case it is better for them to live by themselves, and exclusively for each other. Whatever happens, the couple?s marriage must be saved and restored to good levels of respect.

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.

In spite of our good relation my wife very often develops relationships with doctors in the hospital she works, here matter of discussion is very much personal and physical, when confronted she admitted her mistake but started it again, is there any guarantee she will not go physical with any of her doctors? I can not understand how the educated doctors also behave like that in spite of having their wife and children, they will argue it as natural friendship, but they immediately turn their faces if they are asked to tell it to their wife, tried to coerce my wife in building extra marital with my wife, when I intervened he threatened me with legal steps, can I trust mt wife?

Master of Clinical Psychology, Post Graduate Diploma in Psychological Counselling

Trust is very much important in maintaining relationships. Open and direct communication without impulsive reactions is very important. Talk to your wife about your and her feelings towards your relationship. Express your love and care for her and tell her that you value it. Instead of blaming her, ask her expectations from the marital relationship. (on physical and mental level). Be transparent and committed. Give her assurance of your commitment. Try to spend more time with her and share your pleasant memories with each other.

You are in deviation. Watching ponrographs only increase your disire and there is a danger of becoming obsessed with that habit leading to many other problems like loss of concentration, feeling of guilt, and even to depression. So that is not a good idea. Prostitution is very bad idea through which you will loose your future in all dimensios, since you are only 19. It is quite normal to have sexual thoughts and feelings at your age. Mind it, it is a trap which dicides whether your future is bright or dark. I mean, you are provided with tremendous physical and mental energy at this age by mother nature. If you direct this energy towards your career achievement and goals, you will get whatever you like, say name, fame, beautiful wife, power, money etc. Otherwise if you are wasting your energies in such a way you have mentioned, it is sure you loose both the present and future. Masturbation, strictly once in a week, will give you some relief without affecting your health.

See a counsellor immediately. It is reversible. Join a club, laugh a lot, have friends and partying, do exercises, play outdoor sports games. Love your family. Spend time talking to family. Negativity comes out of loneliness and failures. Right attitude can help you win over situation.

Is there any medicine or counselling that helps to stop drinking alcohol completely. If so please let me know.

MBBS, DPM
Psychiatrist, Bangalore
Dear lybrate-user, It is a crores of rupees question. Many researchers are still spending much time and energy to find such a medicine or counseling. Right now, we have effective drugs to counteract withdrawal symptoms. We have 2-3 types of tablets to counteract craving for alcohol. Of course, we have disulfiram (antabuse) for developing aversion towards alcohol. We also have motivational enhancement therapy, relapse prevention therapy, family therapy, individual therapy, etc. With these things, mostly in combination of all, anyone can stop drinking completely. Remember alcohol dependence is a chronic recurring disorder. Please remember the above advice is for those who became dependent on alcohol - not for anyone who drinks. They can stop drinking alcohol completely without much help from medicines.

Dear, Tobacco is addictive. Cigarette also contains 4000+ carcinogenic chemicals other than nicotine. The best method is to leave it and continue with your will power. There are other methods like Nicotine Replacement therapy and pharmacotherapy combined. If you?re ready to stop smoking and willing to get the support you need, you can recover from nicotine addiction and abuse abuse?no matter how bad the addiction or how powerless you feel. The first step in treating nicotine addiction is accepting that you have a problem. Confronting an addiction and accepting responsibility for your actions isn?t easy. But it?s a necessary step on the road to treatment and recovery. You should then consult a psychiatrist / psychologist who fill follow this treatment. 1. Detoxification using medicines. 2. Behavior modification with the help of therapies. 3. Counseling. 4. Medication to sustain and 5. Long term support. These given steps are essential for any addict to get effectively rid of smoking. Therefore, you need to stick to the treatment plan and cooperate with your psychiatrist / psychologist. Take care.
