My sister (45 years) has been suffering from schizophrenia since last 2/3 years. I consulted pshychiatrist and accordingly medicins were prescribed. But she does not want to take medicine claiming that she is not suffering from any ailment. We are helpless. Kindly advise.
Discussing ed problems with your partner
Communication plays one of the most important roles in any sexual relationship.
For most men who begin to detect the signs of erectile dysfunction, it can be a big challenge to admit it to their partner about the problem.
Emotions may run high and you may feel nervous or awkward and get stressed about your partner's reaction to it.
But always remember that your problem is also affecting your partner. And a clear discussion may be the first step to the diagnosis and treatment of your problem.
Try and get past the initial hesitation and talk it out to your partner. Feeling embarrassed about discussing your problem of erectile dysfunction can make your relationship even worse.
While it is not easy to communicate with your partner about your erection problems, it is imperative that you do so.
Here are a few tips for getting the conversation started.
1. Don't hesitate
Sometimes the most difficult part is just starting the conversation on this subject. Yet you need to explain the issue in plain simple words.
Admitting it your partner can be the first step to getting started on the road to recovery.
Make sure that you and your partner are comfortable and not stressed out at the time you choose to discuss the matter.
It might feel awkward at the beginning but once the conversation flows, it will be much easier for you to explain. Talking frankly about your problem will also increase the chances of winning the emotional support of your partner.
2. Discuss the treatment options
Because of the advancement in medicine, erection problems are much easily treated than ever before.
Once you have opened the discussion on this subject let your partner know that there are treatments available for this problem. This will give her hope and a positive attitude towards the situation.
Having your partner's support in taking the treatment will make it much easier for both of you to deal with it.
3. Be positive
Stay supportive and positive. Be more expressive about your feelings of love and attraction towards her. Let her know you care.
Focus more on emotional intimacy. Sometimes going bravely through such difficulties together makes the relationship even stronger.
Avoiding the issue of impotence will not make it disappear but will just raise the level of tension and frustration in the relationship.
Therefore, it's very important to discuss the issue with your partner and subsequently, seek medical help and counseling as soon as possible.
Keeping these things in mind, you can deal better with the problem of erectile dysfunction and reduce its impact on your relationship.

This is for my 15 years old nephew. He has anxiety problem. Of late, he went to himachal where he was 95% normal. He had only time fixation ie particular work to be done at a particular time. He ate well and loved to have a bath. But he wanted to stay there and not come back to Mumbai. He wanted to stay in Hotels and enjoy himself. His mother forcibly brought him back ultimately. Now he does not eat well, and not had bath since the last 3 months. He eats only Once a day. And he says he will only eat and have bath once he is out of Mumbai. He speaks in code language with his mother saying that he feels scared if she speaks in normal language. But he speaks in normal language ie English and hinder with outsiders. He refuses to open his eyes at home saying he feels scared but opens his eyes once he is out in The restaurant. He is paranoid about home and the areas around. How he is going to behave at a particular place ie home is pre planned by him. Eg: closing eyes, not letting others speak at home etc. We have a cordial home environment and this boy is the only child in the house. Thus pampered. Kindly let us know. We are worried.

Everyone forgets things once in a while, but for some people this forgetfulness can be a sign of a bigger problem. People who cannot remember important information about their life may be said to be suffering from dissociative amnesia. This can cause memory loss of specific events and themes or make the person forget a majority of their identity and history in general. This dissociative disorder can be mild or be severe enough to affect the daily functioning of a person.
Lost memories cannot be brought back with treatment but treatment can help a person suffering from this disorder reconnect with people and feel secure in their surroundings. The treatment of this condition must be customized to the person’s symptoms. Some forms of treatment for dissociative amnesia are:
- Psychotherapy: This is also known as talk therapy as it largely involves conversations between the patient and doctor. It is the main form of therapy used to treat this condition and can also act as an umbrella for many other types of therapy.
- Cognitive behavioral therapy: Cognitive therapy focuses on changing the person’s behaviour. It focuses on thinking patterns and feelings that are harmful to the person self-image.
- Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing: Dissociative amnesia is often associated with traumatic events. In such cases eye movement desensitization and reprocessing is used to address symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorders such as nightmares and flashbacks.
- Dialectic behaviour therapy: People who have suffered from abuse or trauma may have severe personality disturbances which may include dissociative amnesia. In such cases, dialectic behaviour therapy may be used.
- Family therapy: Dissociative amnesia is often a recurrent condition and affects not only the life of the patient but that of his or her family as well. Hence therapy for the entire family is often necessary.
- Creative therapies: Cognitive therapy includes art therapy, music therapy etc. This allows patients to explore different ways of expressing their thoughts and feelings.
- Meditation: Meditation and practising relaxation techniques make people more aware of their internal stress levels and equip them to better handle their symptoms.
- Clinical hypnosis: When being used to treat this disorder, hypnosis allows a person to express thoughts and emotions they may have hidden form their conscious minds. Through hypnosis the patient can achieve a different state of consciousness through relaxation techniques, concentration and attention.
- Medication: Dissociative amnesia cannot be treated through medication but antidepressants and anti-anxiety medication can help deal with the disorder by calming the mind. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a psychiatrist.
