Yours kids are now young enough to be sleep in a separate room. If possible. You may give a separate room to them. Every one have privacy. You should not sex while they are sleeping in your room. Because growing young kids are very inquisitive in nature. They may awaken. You may do when those are not present at home and even not probability to come. Condition may be manipulated very well. If planned well. Wish you good relations.

4 Logical Ways to Save Your Relationship When You’re Depressed

4 Logical Ways to Save Your Relationship When You’re Depressed
Ways to Save Your Relationship When You’re Depressed

The foremost thing that you can do to save your relationship is get your spouse treated for depression. When you are depressed, whether it is because of your relationship with your partner or some other reason, you must make joint efforts to save your relationship. Non depressed spouse has to take the lead. A relationship cannot go further only with the patience of one partner. Efforts and care of both the partners go hand in hand.

However, there are few things you can do even when you or your partner is depressed.

1. Communication: Don’t stop communicating with your partner. It’s very important to understand your partner’s viewpoint and to make him understand your viewpoint. Until, both of you share your thoughts and concerns; you will not be able to save the relationship.

2. Think about your commitment: When you are depressed, you might make your partner responsible for all the wrong things. You need to be wise. Don’t let one bad moment spoil your years of relationship. Think of the commitment you have made to your partner and then you might handle the situation in a more loving way.

3. Don’t leave your partner alone for longer time: After presenting your viewpoint, you must give your partner some time to digest everything. What is easy for you might be difficult for him and what is difficult for you might be easy for him? In such a case, you need to leave him alone for some time but do take care that this silence shouldn’t continue for a longer time.

4. Don’t play blame games: If you are depressed, you shouldn’t let your partner suffer from that. Do not strain the relationship any further by playing blame games. That will not help. When your spouse says something that seems negative try not to personalize it, even if it's directed at you. Attribute it to the state of depression.

While this can be a very difficult time for both you and your spouse, you can weather this storm with compassion and empathy.

I don't knoe what to do now. I am feeling like committing suicide. Every1 is hating me even my parents. All are thinking I am a bloody loser and dats true. I am a loser. Because now I have no job. No friends. No beauty. No intellect only a lifeless body. Dat I want to destroy now.

Dear lybrate-user, every person in this world is beautiful. You can look beautiful if you have enough self confidence and" there is no cosmetic for beauty, like happiness" presently it appears that you are not happy with yourself and your life situations, hence you are not finding yourselff good enough/beautiful. Your parents may be disappointed with you for not living up to their expectations. They may not be hating you. If you have encountered more failures in life, that does not make you a loser. But if you stop trying, that will make you a loser for sure. So don't lose heart, explore different possibilities in life and keep trying, don't give up. There will be failures and set backs in life. If you don't have a job right now, that does not mean you will never get a job. Just keep trying harder. A person fails when she/he stops trying. You feel like committing suicide because you are thinking that, that is the best option for you. But it is not true. You have not explored enough options. All you need to do is, stop taking negativity from others. Focus on your strengths. Read about all the great scientists and other great personalities and you will know how they also had to face failures many times in life. Have faith in yourself. All the best.

Hi doc, I am 17 years old. I had depression for 3 years but now it's in balance. I also have social anxiety I have had it all my life because of this I cannot go outside and do simple tasks. I don't like to talk to people and even I if do wanna talk with somebody I can't because of my anxiety. Also I feel like I am in a dream I don't feel like I am living and when I go outside this feeling increases. I feel like it's gonna ruin my future and my career. My family notices that I cannot socialize or go outside and they say I cannot do anything in my life like that. I feel like a burden. I feel like it's bringing my depression back. I want to treat my social anxiety medication worked only for a while. Now I don't want to take medication. Should I get therapy? I have heard it's working for other people.

Hi Lybrate user, I can understand your concern and I suggest you to continue your medications till your doctor asks you to do so. Also going for therapy will help you to manage your anxiety and socialise with people. Meanwhile, I suggest you to try going out for social gathering (it's ok if you don't interact with others in the beginning) while you are out, try being with someone you trust. Once you feel little confident, try speaking to one person you don't know. Take your trust ones help. Gradually increase the number of people you meet. Do it atleast twice a week. This will help you to build your confidence and face your anxiety. Ignore what people tell you and believe yourself. Little dedication and patience will help.

If it is very mild OCD, it can be controlled without medicines, with behavior therapy approaches. You can consult a psychiatrist or clinical psychologist. OCD can cause death by suicide due to unbearability of symptoms and secondary depression.

Why my husband feel totally drain out by 6 pm in the evening everyday. He is 56 years old man.
Dear, the reason could be stress. Stress is simply a reaction to a stimulus that disturbs our physical or mental equilibrium. In other words, it's an omnipresent part of life. A stressful event can trigger the fight-or-flight response, causing hormones such as adrenaline and cortisol to surge through the body. A little bit of stress, known as? acute stress? can be exciting? it keeps us active and alert. But long-term, or chronic stress? can have detrimental effects on health. You may not be able to control the stressors in your world, but you can alter your reaction to them. I need to know, what are the causes with which you are stressed? once you know the reason, you will be able to adjust with it with some tips and tricks. Please let me know the details. Take care.

Hello. I'm seeking help for my relative. He's 27 of age highly intelligent, sharp but disturbingly introvert. He's an iim/IIT but have been asked to resign from last companies he's somehow managed to work with. He ill treats his mom and brother. Is angry and annoyed. waste all his time sleeping or playing games on computer. He never leaves home , even his room. I think he's in severe depression and needs help. But we aren't able to convince him for that. He won't meet anyone at all. Doesn't talk to anyone other than his mother. When forced with love even if with strict behavior for getting a job or making his life better/ or getting help. He starts rough and arrogant behavior .start throwing stuff around and says he'll commit suicide. We have no clue how to deal with this situation and help him. We were thinking of not caring him at all for few days, like making mom to stay away for a week from him. So that he could realize that he actually would need other human contact in future apart from his mother. Would it work?? Or worsen the case? We fear for if he'll go somewhere and do something wrong. Please help by suggesting something to make our life better.

MD Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Chennai
From what you are describing he may be suffering from a more serious psychiatric illness than depression. Sometimes patients are not aware of their illness and hence refuse treatment. In such cases treatment can be offered with the family's consent. He needs family support and we cannot predict how he would respond to being left alone. Consult a psychiatrist as soon as possible.

I am in the second year of degree college and my concern is that I have no friends in college. Like literally no friends, also I have some social anxiety. When I see people around me, I don't find things to talk and I think that I just don't fit in, sometimes I do talk to random people but I don't end up becoming friends. What is the issue? Is it that I don't fit in? There are some people that I want to talk to but I don't like to seem desperate so I don't make the move. This is becoming a huge problem as I fear that I will not get a guy because no guy talks to me. I feel that I just don't know how to socialize and don't know to communicate may be because I am not fun or my face is ugly or I am not audible at times. Should I change myself. And the bigger problem is now that people know me as an introvert they would rather not talk to me at all. I am not friends with anyone in the college and I am a total loner. What should I do? My college life has become an hell.

Those people who suffer from a rejection issue find themselves in this predicament. Find out why these people are neglecting you. Are you doing something to cause this? There must be a way you behave or present yourself that they are choosing to neglect you. Once you have identified that, change that behavior in you. Before you do so ask yourself, do you love yourself first of all? I suspect that there may be a problem of self-acceptance and self-love. If you don’t love yourself, then you may depend on others too much for the love you need. Inevitably, they will reject you or at least neglect you. You could be suffering from the rejection issue from which all these outcomes will be activated. This is how social priorities are normally set: first you love god, then yourself sufficiently, and then others. If you are full of appropriate love, you will attract others’ love by default. As easy as that!!! The identity crisis is typical of someone who is dependent on others for acknowledgement and tends to identify with other personalities. You probably suffer from low self-esteem. But far worse than that is my fear that you may have some serious rejection issues. The fear of acceptance may then trigger a performance-oriented individual who will depend entirely on other people’s opinion and assessment of himself. This will make you even more vulnerable and susceptible to rejection, and you may hurt very badly and easily at the slightest sign of rejection. There is a way about this, but meet with a counselor and see what can be worked out to learn to accept yourself first. If you did this you will naturally perform well and will not depend on others, entirely, for their acceptance. If you know of any reason to believe that this rejection is true from your childhood it would help tremendously. Talk to your parents and find out what they remember or you could take them with you to meet with the counselor. If you learn to accept yourself first then the identity may be formed, but the best way to develop an identity is to know your emotions and how to express them. Your feelings are a very good indicator of who you are. A counselor will help you do this well. You already sound like someone who has a poor self-image. This itself can push people away inadvertently. This can be resolved with some work with a counselor.
