Since birth of my child, our sex life has come to an end Everytime I ask for sex my wife denies for the fear of getting impregnated again despite making her aware of contraception. To be honest; watching porn was the only relief I got but later I seem to have thoughts about sex and female body images all the time and was worried of what if it may turn into a compulsion or obsession and stopped watching porn however the thoughts of sex or images never ceased. I try my best to keep me religious and concentrate on divinity however it fails. I am really worried since I have a baby daughter. How to control this. Kindly help.

It would be highly un-intelligent to concentrate on religion to counter sexual thoughts. It will drive you crazy. Your burning desire not fulfilled is leading to this frustration and sexual chain of thoughts, do not control it, you cannot your wife needs counseling. Persuade her into that, tell frankly how it is affecting you. Remember what is happening to you is not abnormal, do not panic or feel guilty, it will magnify the problem.

m sure that you will soon be able to get over this feeling of depression which is a temporary phase. It might take some time. Spend time with your friends and family. Talk to them share your feelings with them. Try to go out to have fun. You can join gym or swimming or tennis. Do meditation and yoga everyday. Avoid being alone and thinking about the lost person. You can use following herbal combination to keep you calm for few days..it is without any side effects. .. SAARASWATARISHTA KADHA 2 spoons twice a day with equal quantity of warm water.

For 2 consecutive days now my uncle seems to zone out and doesn't realize where he is. He starts laughing all of a sudden and we need to nudge him a few times before he snaps out of it. What could be causing this? He is approximately 64 year old.

He is probably going into age-related mental disturbance and apart from nudging him back to the reality you must engage him with something more stimulating than what is occupying him internally. You should take him to a psychiatrist immediately and get an assessment for more specific diagnosis and prescription. The earlier the intervention, the better the prognosis. He must also exercise at a level suitable to his age and approved by his physician. A lot of mind engaging activities and exercises will be of great benefit for him. Take him out on social visits and have people visit him too, especially people who are known to him. If he is neglected he can fast become dysfunctional too. Because of his age there may be stressors peculiar to him and it may be useful if a counselor could extract them out for treatment. Also his constitution and lowering defense mechanisms may be in question due to advancing seniority. Building that up may be an impossible task but worth the try. If you keep his mind occupied and develop his physical health in tandem, you will see some remarkable changes and stability.

I suspect that the adolescent issues with regard to hormones may be affecting your ability to concentrate and remember. When the hormones play up, it lasts for a period of close to two years and during that time you could be influenced by three signs directly impacted by the chemical: you will tend to become aggressive and rebellious, you will become sexually active, and you will have acne and pimple problems. The hormonal imbalances may not only impact your memory because of the chemical but also bring some distractions that come with it. But you may work on the following even if the hormones kick in: Daily exercise of at least half an hour is a must. Even if you go to a gym, ask for aerobic and/or callisthenic exercises with whatever else you are doing. A healthy body harbors a healthy mind. With regard to memory, it is very important that your brain and body is ideally rested to be able to recall whatever is required, rather comfortably. Puzzles pose problems to the brain that help it to use new pathways and neurons, which give the brain considerable exercise. It taxes the left brain to use logic to solve the myriad possibilities which other activities do not stimulate. Crosswords are excellent for vocabulary learning and use. Jigsaws and Rubik cube stimulate different permutations to finally settle on the most likely one. Picture completion and anagrams help approach problem solving from several angles. Do Sudoku, and memory co-relation activities and skills. Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber (whole grains, fruits and vegetables), nuts, avocado, eat dark chocolate, consume less of fat and use olive oil instead, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. You need to check out if you are stronger visual or auditory. The visual is a better mode than the auditory. However, if you combine the two modes, you will get the best concentration. Have a special place of learning, which should be well lit, with soft painted walls, well-ventilated, with no distractions. When you get bored, study by writing. If you repeat learning at least five to seven times, you will apparently remember for a longer time. Sit comfortably but do not slouch. The reading material should be of a fairly large print. Study at small intervals of about 40 minutes and then take a break or change the subject. Short-term memory is a faculty of the left brain, and long-term memory is a feature of the right brain. When people are stressed, they tend to favor the right brain and abandon the left brain, where short-term memory resides. So, it is really very simple: deal with the stress and activate left brain functions. Here are a few suggestions to activate left brain function: shut your left nostril and breathe, move your eyes from right to left and vice versa for at least half a minute at a time, and do callisthenic exercises with some form of counting, regularly. There is a new exercise called Super Brain Yoga, which is done by holding the right earlobe with your left thumb and index finger, and the left earlobe with your right hand’s thumb and index finger. In this position you must squat down and rise up and do this for five minutes every day. There are some memory enhancing techniques and study methods that your teacher will be able to guide you with. If your home life is full of distractions and stress, it is likely to affect your memory, adversely. In that case, I suggest that the family goes for counseling too. The following foods do help too: Blueberries, walnuts, turmeric, Spinach, tomatoes, broccoli, acorn squash, green tea, oily fish, boiled egg, turkey, apples, oatmeal, leafy greens, lentils, pumpkin seeds, avocado, cinnamon, thyme, sunflower seeds, and red wine. Avoid junk food.

Dear user. I can understand. You are HEALTH ANXIOUS, it seems. Hypochondriasis is an Obsession with the idea of having a serious but undiagnosed medical condition. Health anxiety is not a serious mental disorder but without proper treatment the person affected could be depressed and continuously engaged in negative thoughts. I suggest online counseling, cognitive Behavior Therapy and Relaxation therapy. Take care.

Hi lybrate-user, I have been through this during my own training. First you need to go back to the purpose of why you want to become a doctor. Then trace it forward by deciding what you can do immediately. Make daily target, simple ones which you can achieve. Don't take load which you can't handle. To start with, what are you going to do tomorrow? Write it down on a piece of paper and see how much you did. You are going through this so that one day you can understand the pain of others. So you are on the path of becoming a sensitive doctor. Best of luck!

Dear Lybrate user, Death anxiety is the morbid, abnormal, or persistent fear of one's own mortality. It is also referred to as thanatophobia (fear of death), and is distinguished from necrophobia, which is a specific fear of dead or dying persons and/or things (i.e. Others who are dead or dying, not one's own death or dying). This is an anxiety disorder. Anxiety disorders are a category of mental disorders characterized by feelings of anxiety and fear, where anxiety is a worry about future events and fear is a reaction to current events. These feelings may cause physical symptoms, such as a racing heart and shakiness. There are a number of anxiety disorders: including generalized anxiety disorder, a specific phobia, social anxiety disorder, separation anxiety disorder, agoraphobia, and panic disorder among others. While each has its own characteristics and symptoms, they all include symptoms of anxiety. I need to know more about your anxiety so that I will be able to diagnose it properly and provide you tips to overcome and manage your anxiety. Take care.

I am male 20 years old. From birth I am having stammer and I had also completed homeopathic course to decrease it or to overcome from it but nothing happened. I came to know that it will decrease as I grow but I am not able to see any difference before and now. Please suggest me a way so that I can work on it. Because having stammer in today's life is very embarrassing.

If your stammer is because of social anxiety, then you may consult a counsellor who will help you to gain more self confidence and thereby reducing your anxiety if any.

Dear lybrate-user. General exercises like jogging and stretching will be good. More useful would be agile games like badminton, football, basketball etc. Studies show that a high-protein, low-sugar, no-additive diet combined with adhd-friendly supplements like fish oil and zinc can drastically improve adhd symptoms in children and adults. Take care.

Do not feel bad lybrate-user. It is very common phenomenon. What you studying you like the subject or you r studying for passing the examination. When your heart say something else and mind says sommething else then you do not feel like concentrating on that because you r confused. You have to be clear for yourself where your heat and mind meets on same platfom. You will see every thing will fall in place it self. Try it.
