I am 27 year old now. I don' t hava a proper job nor good friends. I always feel lonely and frustrated in my life and it' s effecting very much in my small family. I' m controlling all my negativity things of my life. Please suggest me to live a normal life.

Controlling the negativity is not the solution: go and face the world. Find a better job, make new friends, and socialize a lot. These things will get you out of your state, of what seems like, a depression. You need to lead an active life anyway and strengthen yourself to face the difficulties that life shoves on you, regularly. Negativity is there all the time for all the people. You have not been specially chosen to be troubled by it. If others can cope, you can too. Don? T believe in the negative: be positive. In fact I suggest the following to you always: be respectful, be responsible, and be functional.

There is nothing to get depressed about this. You probably have a wandering eye with an active imagination and therefore you are getting sexually aroused with another woman. Perhaps your marriage is going through what used to be called a 7-year itch and it is getting a bit stale and not as exciting as before. Even the sexual act may be a routine affair and does not get your mojo going. Also, your spouse may be losing her sexual appeal for various reasons and this is also, therefore, losing your attraction towards her. You will need to either accept all this and make good with what you have or the both of you need to introduce other exciting ways to stimulate your marriage to make it more satiating. You sound like you are overweight and this can be a contributor too. So some exercise will do you good and your​ hunger for sex will be aroused enough to want it with your spouse itself.

Very simple. Make sure everytime your body is being pricked by a needle that whether it is a properly sterilized one or disposable new one. You can also request your medical person to remove the packaging of syrenges and needles only in front of you, you have every right to do so. Nowadays, only disposable syrenges and needles are in use.

I feel sleepy during daytime and due to which I can't concentrate on my studies what should I do to avoid sleep.
Dear lybrate-user, I want to ask you about your night sleep. If it is fine then you need to undergo thyroid test to evaluate you for hypothyroidism. Start exercise daily for 30 to 40 mins, 3.5 to 4L water intake per day. Take hot shower 30 min before sleep and apply lotion on your limbs. I am sure this will help you. Get back to me with thyroid report. All d best.

You both may be having different ideas and fatancies about sexual relationship. It is also possible that your urge is stronger than hers. But to learn more about it talk to a counsellor or a sexologist. Sexual satisfaction is very important for a marriage to sustain. Any dissatisfaction of sexual needs will complicate the relation further. Kindly seek professional help at the earliest.

Before 8 years my nature was opposite I dont use to talk harshly with anyone,but know I can't bare wrong things . What to do. I feel very guilty but I can't control my self

You see we always recommend that people express themselves every time they have feelings. But we also inform them that they need to express feelings in an appropriate manner. If you don?t, the expressions will backfire and make you worse than before. Acting impulsive and screaming and shouting will make the situation worse. Then you feel guilt and give yourself a headache. Almost all headaches are related to unexpressed anger. So now the moot question is, is this anger from the present or does it come from your distant past. Whichever it is, it has to be dealt with now. Exercise gives vent to the energy of anger. So it is proposed as a good measure to lessen the impact of it. You must meet with a counselor and learn some skills with regard to emotions and a lot of your impulsive behavior will come down drastically and you will behavior with decorum. Learn to offer your anger to God, especially if it is from your past, if you are the spiritual type. Even so every time you feel anger now, it must be dealt with promptly.

Lybrate-user, its a myth that masturbation will drain you or is unhealthy. You don't have to feel guilty about it at all. Till the time its rewarding and not a hindrance you can carry on with it. Its natural. But if you feel its in excess or want to stop it for other reasons, consult with a psychologist for psychotherapy- to learn to deal ways to curb it. All the best.

I am 21 years old I have problem of memory loss so, what should I do to be good in memory power.

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, welcome to lybrate. Memory and mind power depends mainly on three aspects. Understanding, storage and recollection. To understand what you are studying, you must be able to be attentive or concentrate. Concentration is possible when you are interested in that subject. Creative way of learning can help you concentrate and understand easily. When you are able to understand and concentrate, it is stored within your brain. If you read more and more it will be store in long term memory. Third part is retrieval. Whenever you want to retrive what you learned and stored, your brain gets the request, searches the database and retrieves the information for you. The retrieval may prove to be difficult if you are anxious, stressed, worried or tired physically or mentally. Retrieval is more easy when you are relaxed and healthy. Brain needs nutrients to keep itself sharp. Fruits, vegetables and dry fruits provide much needed nutrients for your brain. Include at least one fruit in your daily diet. Physical exercises, entertainment, hobbies, relaxation, memory games like sudoku etc help keep your memory sharp and active. You may consult a psychologist.

Hello. Doctor I have some short temper I am unable to control my short temper I am highly tempered when someone irritates me please doctor pleas give me proper suggestion for my disease.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Some of the "typical" responses to frustration include anger, quitting (burn out or giving up), loss of self-esteem and self-confidence, stress and depression. Anger management: 10 tips to tame your temper ANGER: There is a saying "Frustration begets anger and anger begets aggression." Direct anger, is expressed toward the object perceived as the cause of the frustration. If a machine does not work, you might hit it or kick it. If someone gets in your way, you could verbally threaten them or push them aside. If the source of the frustration is too powerful or threatening for direct aggression, displaced aggression is often used. The aggression is redirected toward a less threatening and more available object. An angry person often acts without thinking. The person has given in to the frustration and they have given up restraint. Anger can be a healthy response if it motivates us to positive action but all too often the actions we engage in when angry are destructive. Indeed, if we could see a videotape of ourselves getting angry, the humiliation might well help cure us of anger. When you feel frustration building, you have to practice learned responses that lead to healthy actions instead of destructive ones. GIVING UP: Giving up on a goal can be productive if the goal is truly out of reach. However, more often giving up (quitting or being apathetic) is another form of giving in to frustration. When repeatedly frustrated, people can drop out of school, quit jobs, or move away. Apathy is giving up all of your goals, so you cannot be frustrated by trying to reach them. We live in difficult time and we have to be persistent in order to accomplish. Consider how many projects you began, and then gave up, because you became frustrated and lost patience. Make a list of things you started and quit because they seemed too difficult. Now calculate the disappointment and loss you suffered by not dealing with the frustration in a more healthy way. Try to remember that quitters never win, and winners never quit. Losing your temper means you're a quitter. LOSS OF CONFIDENCE: is a terrible frequent side effect of giving up and not fulfilling your goal. A loss of self-confidence and self-esteem, means that If we quit once, then the next time we plan a goal, we may not be able to accurately assess our ability to carry it out and we stop trusting ourselves and our own abilities. This became a self-fulfilling and self-destructive attitude. You need to be able to learn that when the going gets tough, you say to yourself "It is worth it!" and by following through, it not only gets the job done, but it builds self-confidence. STRESS: is the "wear and tear" our body and mind experiences as we adjust to the frustrations our continually changing environment. Too frequently, extreme, or prolonged frustration and stress strains us and generates distress signals. Our body experiences distress signals in a variety of ways, often in the form of: irritability, anger, fatigue anxiety, headache, depression, stomach aches, hypertension, migraines, ulcers, heart attacks, or colitis. DEPRESSION: Depression can affect almost every aspect of your life. It affects people of all ages, income, race, and cultures. Depression can affect the way you eat and sleep the way you feel about yourself, the way one think about things, and the way you interact with others. While we all feel depression at various appropriate times in our lives, excess or inappropriate depression cannot be easily dismissed or wished away. OTHER REACTIONS: abuse of drugs & alcohol is self-destructive and usually futile attempt at dealing with frustration, as are many eating and weight problems and addictions Whenever the immediate effects of the addictive behaviour wear off, users find themselves back in the same, or even worse, frustrating situation. Learning To Deal With Frustration It is unrealistic to believe you can rid yourself of frustration forever, but you can learn to do things to minimize your frustrations and to make sure you do not engage in unhealthy responses to frustration. You will need to learn to distinguish between what you hope will happen, what will probably happen, and what actually happened. Life inevitably has its ups and downs -- its moments of relaxation and times of tension. When you learn to truly accept this reality, you come one step closer to being able to deal with frustration in a healthy way. There are several types of problems that we encounter in everyday living: those which you know can be solved, those which you are not sure if they can be solved or not, those you know are totally out of your control, and those you are so confused about that you do not even know what the problem is. You need to be able to accurately assess your abilities to alter situations that prevent you from solving your problems and reaching your goal. Then you will be able to assess which of the types of problems you have encountered, and you will then be able to develop a realistic plan. Learning to take things in stride will also help you to be more content and happy which, in turn, will help you to more easily overcome anger and frustration. If you are upset, sad, anxious, or depressed you will have less patience and tolerance for everything and everybody.

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.

Dear lybrate user, welcome to lybrate. The duty of your mind is to think. You cannot control your mind's thinking. Once you just leave your mind without diversion, it always ends up in negative territory. Over thinking leads to obsession, self talking and laziness. 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. Anyhow, there is nothing to worry. Most of the psychological problems can be cured with scientific therapy methods. Take care.

When you are not studying take break with some nice soothing music, divine music or walking outside especially in morning and listening to audio on your earphones, and do some meditation and yoga to balance mind. Avoid meat, eggs and intoxicants and too much time of social media and television.
