Since you know some thing is wrong between you and your wife, either try to talk it out with your wife. If that effort meets a dead end, contact a marriage counselor and get in to therapy.

Actually. I have so much tensions That's why i feel irritated all the time. Tell me what i should do now ?

Hypnotherapist, DCS, BSIC, Advanced Trainee of Transactional Analysis, Advanced Skills in Counselling
Psychologist,
To deal with your irritation, you need to sort out the source of irritation. Also the fact that people will not behave as per your expectation every time. So being realistic about what you expect from whom and how much, would help you in the long run. If you are a person who doesn't speak her mind out when irritated and holds it within is also not good for your emotional health. Irritation is a superficial feeling, hiding underneathe real feelings of hurt, shame, embarrassment, disappointment etc. Try to understand what is it that you are feeling just before you start getting irritated. Sometimes sharing without blaming that you are upset, hurt, disappointed etc with the other person will also help you. Do give a valid reason for it to support your feelings. All these things require a lot of self aweness which a counselling psychologist will help you to achieve. Do visit one in your city. I work in Bangalore and offer Skype sessions too for outside clients.

Signs that You are Suffering from an Anxiety Disorder

Signs that You are Suffering from an Anxiety Disorder

All individuals get nervous or anxious at some point of time or the other due to a plethora of reasons. But for some individuals, anxiety becomes so frequent and forceful, that it overpower their lives. Normal anxiety is often short lived, but the feeling may last for few hours. However, an anxiety problem becomes an anxiety disorder when anxious feelings are very intense and last for weeks or months. Anxiety disorder exists in different forms like panic attacks, social anxiety and phobia.

The most common form of anxiety is Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD) during which an individual worries too much about everyday things and situations, both large and small. The person in this condition has persistent anxious thoughts on most days of the week, for six months. Moreover, the anxiety is so overpowering that it interferes with daily life and is coupled by noticeable symptoms like fatigue. The anxiety level goes to such an extent that causes a lot of dysfunction and suffering. If a person suffers from sleep problems and finds himself regularly awake and agitated or worried, then it is a tell-tale sign of generalized anxiety disorder. This is followed by a situation when one wakes up overstimulated with mind racing and one is unable to calm down.

When the anxiety is tied to a specific situation and the fear is overwhelming and out of proportion to the actual risks then the condition is phobia. This can be due to anything ranging from crowd, animals to flying in an aeroplane or using an escalator. Muscle tension like clenching of jaw or fists or flexing of muscles though out the body always accompanies anxiety disorders. Regular exercise can help keep muscle tension under control, but the tension may get triggered up if an injury or other unforeseen event disrupts a person's workout habits. Panic disorder is repeated, unexpected panic attacks where one encounters panic in a situation where most people wouldn’t be afraid. Anxiety also leads to chronic digestive problems like cramping and bloating of stomach.

Social phobia or social anxiety disorder occurs when one develops an intense fear of being judged or embarrassed in public. People with social anxiety disorder have a tendency to worry for weeks leading to an event or situation. When and if they manage it, they tend to be deeply uncomfortable and are always judgemental about it. In case of social anxiety disorder, the anxiety is triggered by everyday situations like one-on-one conversation at a get-together, or eating and drinking in front of small group. The person feels that everybody is watching him and experiences profuse sweating, trembling, nausea and person becomes tongue-tied. These disruptions make it hard for the person to meet new people and maintain relationships.

Panic disorder causes terrifying panic attacks when the person experiences a sudden gripping feeling of fear and helplessness which lasts for several minutes. It is generally accompanied with scary symptoms like breathing problems, a pounding heart, numb hands and sweating.

Excessive fear of being separated from home or a loved one is separation anxiety disorder. Post -traumatic stress disorder is an anxiety disorder in which the patient relives a disturbing or traumatic event like a violent encounter, the sudden death of a loved one.

An anxiety disorder affects the thinking, feelings as well as behaviour of a normal person. It’s important to seek professional help if one see any of the warning signs of anxiety disorders in an individual.

Sudden onset of memory loss can be due psychological or neurological reasons. Neurological reasons can be usually ruled out by a mri scan. Psychological reasons can be an acute stressful event or a depressive episode. Get yourself evaluated and wishes for a speedy recovery.

Dear Lybrate user, Break ups can be a tough phase to pass through. We feel like a huge loss has just occured. Make sure you give yourself the space to acknowledge what has happened. Also remeber that eveyrhting is temporary, even this pain you are going through. Try diverting yourself to tasks you love doing. Also, try to reflect on the lessons you have learnt through your jouney and the postive side of what has happened. Rationalizing what has happened helps to a great extent. Give it some time to pass through. Even after all this if your pain does not seem manageable I would recommend you to visit a professional psychologist. Usually psychologists or counselors have a lot of experience and knowledge about how to skillfully deal with life issues such as break ups. You could also connect with us online to explore the issue further and help you feel better. Be proactive in dealing with your issue. All the best!

Ten Ways to Improve Your Sex Life

GAMS-AYURVEDA, MD-TCM
Sexologist, Faridabad
Ten Ways to Improve Your Sex Life

The greater part of us can recollect the hot, zesty minutes when the love life  was new and everything was rosy between you and your partner. However, the flame of a decent love life may fade away. Gradually, you and your partner may have an uninteresting sexual life.

In order to break the deadlock, you must find ways to bring back the old flame. Here are 10 ways, following which you can slowly get back to your glory days:

  1. For men, keeping a healthy heart is a must for long lasting spirit in bed. Your penis chips away with circulatory strain. The mind sends signals to your penis that causes vessels to swell with blood. Your heart is in charge of pumping the blood. When the heart is not functioning at its best, it can bring about issues with the blood stream from the heart to the vessels in your penis. This can make it hard to accomplish a full erection. Ensure your circulatory framework is working at top shape. Essentially, what is useful for your heart is useful for your sexual well-being.
  2. One of the most ideal approaches to enhance your sexual well-being is cardiovascular activity. Sex gets your heart rate up, yet standard activity can help your sexual execution by keeping your heart fit as a fiddle. Sweat breaking activities, such as running and swimming, can do marvels to uplift your charisma.
  3. In case of men, some food items help  in increasing blood flow. This accounts for better erection. Example, banana (rich in potassium), onion, garlic, chilies and pepper. Some of these items reduce hypertension.
  4. There are many people who have certain sexual problems, but keep them to themselves. People tend to hide their problems from their partners because of fear of failure. These problems should be talked about, given attention and be cured in order to restore the normal sexual performance and Erectile Dysfunction is one such problem.
  5. Sex is a two way road. Giving careful consideration to your partner's longing makes sex pleasurable for them and turns you on as well. Discussing this in advance will make it easier for you. 
  6. In case you're not enduring the length you desire in bed, you may require some practice. Masturbation can help you enhance your stamina.
  7. Exposure to sunlight decreases the production of melatonin. Less melatonin increases the potential for sexual urge. Spend some time in the sun.
  8. Reduce much stress possible from your life. Stress boosts blood pressure and heart rate and your sexual performance gets hampered.
  9. Get rid of unhealthy habits, such as smoking and drinking. Such stimulants may lead to impotency, and you must avoid them to maintain sexual health.
  10. Experiment with new and different sexual positions to make it more interesting and fun for your partner.

Dear , the duty of your mind is to think. You cannot control your mind's thinking. But certainly you can divert your thinking. You can make your mind to be always positive by engaging in creative activities, hobbies, games and passionate towards whatever you do. Thereby you can reduce your stress and tension also. Once you can do this, loss of proper sleep and stress also can be made normal. Please provide me with more information and post a private question. I will help you with this. Take care.

Hello sir, you asked me to be more clear about my anxiety condition. As I have mentioned earlier that I am asocial person so I have limited people in my life. I was advised by local doctor last year to enhance my social circle try socializing which has only lead to develop some expectations and has made me more social. I have a body shivering problem. I can not figure out the reason of sour relations with everyone including my parents which is disturbing me. Most of the time pessimistic no matter how much I try making it positive. Also have to deal with future oriented anxiety. Its been 6 days of chronic headache due to my decision of quiting smoking. No one is happy with me.

Good Morning ~ I am glad your social anxiety disorder or social phobia is gradually getting better and you are socializing more. Body shivering or tremors can be due to anxiety attacks or panic attacks and this can be easily treated with either therapy or medications. I recommend a combination of both which is more effective. With regards to your parents and your problems with relationship with them I would have to learn more so that I can understand and try to help with your condition a bit better. Underlying depression may be the cause of pessimism and procrastination, along with social phobia. Anticipatory anxiety which is being worried about becoming worried is something which needs to be treated medically.

Hello lybrate user, first of all you have to investigate the reason behind your weakness. If there's anything that you are hiding that is excessive masturbation , any difficult situation, anxiety, apprehension related to your performance, etc. then provide details so that I can help you with that.

Dear Lybrate user. I can understand. Your daughter is just 3 and half years. Please consider her age. Children do act according to what they are trained for. You must understand you can easily train your child to do whatever you want. For training you have to first understand the child and her needs. You can use trial and error method or reward punishment method. If you don't have time, a psychologist should help you. I suggest online behaviour therapy for your child. Take care.

My son is 33 years old, married for three years, achiever, working in a MNC, everything is hunky dory but in d last one year he is very obsessed with abs, pumping up and body building and has been taking zomacton (somatotropin) hormones for the last one year. He is very withdrawn, has mood swings. My daughter in law says he is absolutely disinterested in physical activity. Has no vices whatsoever. Well behaved, is not very social and is an introvert .He is feeling life is meaningless and has suicidal feelings at times (he has contemplated suicide when he was alone) he is not gregarious by nature. His routine is office, gym,eat n sleep and on weekends sleep a lot. His life has all d pluses, loving wife, v Good education, loving sibling and parents. V good job U name it n he has it all but of late he asks about d purpose of life and wants to write a book on it. Doesn't party, v occasional drinker, no subs abuse ever, no smoking or womanizing. While talking to his wife also, at times goes into a shell and wants to b left alone. What could b wrong? His wife is v chirpy and not at all demanding.

Dear Lybrate User, I think it will be helpful if your son and daughter in law seek help from a Couple Counsellor. It appears to me that either your son has had some difficult/traumatic childhood experiences or he might be having some doubts about his sexuality and sexual desire. The Counsellor will help them. If your son refuses to go to the Counsellor please ask your daughter in law to take the appointment and start the process. Many times young couples may not be able to share their sexual concerns with the elders in the house. The Counsellor will be of great help. Seek Counsellor's help at the earliest. All the best.
