I am unable to control my impatience, anger and anxiety, as a result I make the life of people around me difficult. I do not think my expectations are unrealistic. It's just that I do not tolerate chalta-hai attitude. People feel that I go into minute details. But then quality comes with details. Maybe I'm failing to carry people with me.

You probably are a high achiever, and do not like and perhaps cannot even tolerate people who are lackadaisical. While that is a good thing for you, people are all born and bred differently. A good leader is the one who can tap into each one?s capability and get the best out of them, not the best you want, necessarily. So it depends on the kind of people you have, and the ideal technique would be to bring the best of each individual, within their capacity. Impatience, anger and anxiety have never brought about harmony in work situations to produce the best. You must love your people and with love much more can be achieved. When you over-detail, you lose the larger picture. That is where you may be getting caught up with the minor steps, at the cost of the end result. There has to be a discrete blend between the process and the result. You cannot be stuck in one end or the other. You last statement is quite revealing and a very honest assessment: you have got to carry people with you. I think it is in Howard University that you are greeted with a huge banner that reads something like this: ?The bottom line of any organization is its people? In people, it is through good relationships. If you build good relations while getting work done, everyone will go home satiated and the work will get done excellently: details and large picture too. You seem to be the common factor, where the problem probably lies. If you don't believe me, then have an open discussion with the workforce and find answers. You may even discuss my response, to stimulate some openness.

Dear, you must be able to distinguish between mental disease and mental disorder. Your problem is a mental disorder. Not a mental disease. These mental disorders are usually treated with a combination of medicines and other means like awareness, meditation, psychotherapy techniques, life style changes etc. I think two or three counseling sessions and psycho therapy techniques should solve her problem. Let me know if she is willing to undergo counseling sessions and tailor made psycho therapy through mobile. Take care.

Have Kids - 4 Ways You Can Rekindle Your Love Life!

MD, DYA, PGDCR

Have Kids - 4 Ways You Can Rekindle Your Love Life!

With kids entering the marriage scene, most couples end up in a routine that primarily revolves around the kids. The intimacy levels nosedive with no time, energy, or the privacy left for private moments. While some people just resign to it as normal course of marriage, others can get frustrated and even look for ways to please themselves outside marriage. The good news is that one need not lose hope. While taking care of children definitely comes as a responsibility, it need not take away all your pleasures of a married life. There can still be a good sexual relationship; all it requires is a little bit of planning and conscious attempts from both partners.

  1. Planned dates: Leave your baby with either a good friend of a family member (grandparents, uncles or aunts) and take some time out at least once a month. This gives you time away from the never-ending responsibility of kids. While you are assured that the child is safe with the short-term babysitter, you get complete private space and time to be with your partner. The wonders this can do are to be seen to be believed.
  2. Separate child’s bedroom: This not only gives you the required privacy, it also helps by instilling some good manners in the child. Early on in life, it knows that it has its own space and the parents, theirs. While there can be occasional days when the child can doze off to sleep with the parents, it has to spend the night in its own bed. With privacy being one of the main reasons for lack of parents, this will take care of it.
  3. Winding up early for the day: While the list of things to do never seems to end, you need to put a stop to it to say, that is all you can manage for the day. Going to bed tired and drained for the day is definitely not going to help your sex life. It is absolutely fine to leave a couple of things to do for tomorrow, so you can go to bed with some energy left for romance.
  4. Small talk, but not about the small ones: While kids do engulf your life, make a conscious attempt to talk about something else. It could be a movie or a book or something that happened in office or home, but not about the kids. This can pep you both up unbelievably and do wonders for rekindling the love in your life.

While kids definitely are the center of your lives, take some time out for yourselves. It works wonders for the relationship, making the other person feel important and loved, and of course, it is mutual.

You incurred a loss that is understandable. In fact losing someone to drugs and alcoholism is even more disturbing. But if you continue feeling sad and depressed about your loss and feel unable to get out of it, you should not hesitate in seeking help from a psychiatrist. You may psychiatrist for counseling and treatment with medications if required.

Drinking water is a very good thing, if you have been doing this for more than two months, there must have been some improvement with your glow. But, you cannot expect your skin to glow any further just by drinking water. There are certain foods that improve your skin from inside or you can simply start with tablet nutraskin (natural skin therapy) to make your skin glow. If you do not like to apply face packs, make sure you cleanse and moisturise your skin daily.

Dear lybrate-user, welcome to lybrate. Anger and aggression are emotions. Anger comes when you become irritated. Irritation happens when you don't like something, or when something is repeated. As anger is an emotion, it should be vent out. You should be able to throw anger out instead of controlling it. But more perfect will be, know the frustrating situations and stop being emotional. If practiced properly, you will not get irritated at those circumstances at all. Those techniques are much easier to understand. I suggest anger management therapy. Take care.

Can you please suggest medicines what should be taken if the person has a habit of smoking cigarettes and taking tobacco.

General Physician,
STOP SMOKING Best age to stop smoking is before 40, In fact do not start all Only by using strong will power and avoiding all situations where you feel like smoking, chewing tobacco or drinking or using drugs avoiding friends who smoke and diverting mind by reading or chewing a gum, like NICORETTE and taking a walk when you crave for a smoke can all help. You can chew Nicorette gum which is nicotine replacement. There are medicines available. Which can be prescribed if asked personally Cigarette smoking is a leading preventable cause of mortality. It kills more than 60 lakh people worldwide every year. More than 50% of regular smokers would invariably die from tobacco-related illnesses which includes heart attack, cancer or asthmatic lung diseases. Best age to stop smoking is before 40 31st May is “World No Tobacco Day” Quitting smoking before the age of 40 is associated with larger decline in premature death than stopping it at a later date. Best age therefore to stop smoking is before 40. However, stopping smoking even after the age of 50 is still associated with lower risk of death as compared to those who continue to smoke. Even in smokers aged 80 years or more, quitting smoking appears to reduce some mortality.

Hi lybrate-user, Dark circles around eyes is a common problem nowadays. There are treatment options available with you to choose from. These range from creams and ointments for local application to oral medications. Treatment with peels show significant improvement in appearance of dark circles. Here are few suggestions, please start eating within 30 mins of getting up in morning. Exercise at least 30 mins a day. Do not plan but quit smoking asap. It’s important to find out the reason you are developing pigmentation around eyes, to layout a personalized treatment plan for you. Please book a private text consultation for further advice.

Dear lybrate-user your mom appears quite sensitive & a family person. Your brother going to chennai for better job prospects has to be emphasized, and I am sure she must be happy for him to be progressing in life--which definitely is something to feel good about. If expailened properly I am sure she wd understand. Her breathing & other problems are manifestations of anxiety. Explain her & insist upon leading an healthy life-style i.e; regular early morning routine, some walk or yoga on a regular basis, taking balanced diet, socialise, evening walk or going to public places with positive vibrations, talk about happy moments of the past & what all positives lie in store for future. Hope this helps! wishing you all the best!

ALCOHOL -PROBLEM DRINKING / STEPS TO AVOID DEPENDENCE

More than 17 million people suffer from alcohol abuse or dependence
But not everyone can tell when heavy drinking crosses the line to alcoholism.

To help people identify when drinking becomes a problem, five major signs of alcohol abuse or dependence:

One is a high tolerance for alcohol, which means a person drinks increasing amounts of alcohol. Someone with a high tolerance may drink more than others without showing obvious signs of intoxication.
Another sign is having withdrawal symptoms when not drinking. These symptoms include anxiety, trembling, jumpiness, sweating, nausea and vomiting, insomnia, irritability, depression, fatigue, headaches and loss of appetite. Some people suffer potentially life-threatening withdrawal seizures, Jacobs said in a university news release.
People with a drinking problem often spend less time on activities that used to be important to them because their drinking is consuming more of their time, energy and focus.
Those who are addicted to alcohol may continue to drink despite negative consequences. Work troubles, damage to a marriage or other relationships or health problems are some possible consequences.
The fifth sign is that someone can't quit or reduce their drinking even when they want to.
If you or someone you know has these signs of alcohol addiction, help is available. Talk to your doctor and/or seek professional counseling,

Long-term alcohol use can harm every organ in your body, including your brain, according to Jacobs. Alcohol abuse can also damage your career, finances, emotional stability, and adversely impact your family and friends.

"Alcohol use disorders are equal opportunity diseases. People from all walks of life are affected, but with the appropriate treatment and care, lifelong recovery is possible"

Sir go for a complete detox of your body with the help of ayurveda's panchakarma therapy. It includes abhyangam (massage with medicated oils) n medicated steam bath. This wud rejuvenate your body - improving your work efficiency and bettering your sleep. It will also strengthen your nerves and muscles. These procedures will take out the harmful toxins out of your body - cleansing your body. Also take shirodhara which would completely take the stress out of your body and you will feel light, fresh and full of energy. Strictly avoid all junks, oily -spicy food, pickles if you r eating, drink lots of water, juices or daily have fresh fruits. Try to keep your bowel clear.

Hello- you can dilate your vaginal opening by insertion of penis with lubrication/or you can dilate by inserting more fingers in it. Once the passage gets dilated it will automatically widens the space due to hormonal changes and will ease the penitration of penis nxt time. Use proper lubrication during all this.

Hi i Am married for 12 yrs and want to be loyal to my wife. We don't yet have children and don't have a diagnosis of why. But my problem is more psychiatric now. My wife and me used to have a very loving relationship for couple of years. But slowly we had several arguments over silly things over the years and she kept blowing things out of proportion. I had an affair. I ended that and my wife though upset, also understood that situations drove me to it and her mistake also there for fighting immaturely over silly things. But my best friend who was supportive to us in the troubled times is now having an emotional affair with my wife. I don't think they had a sexual relationship, but she is emotionally attached to him and her text messages to him say she loves him. After all this; my emotions are in a turmoil and I tend to seek love outside and now talk to a couple of women intimately. I fear am turning into a love addict or something. My sexual relationship with my wife has been just once in a month or even less for nearly a year now. I know it's not a physical problem that I have and purely psychological. I have not confronted her or anything. But she knows I suspect her of having a relationship with him, but still continues to text him and such behind my back. At times she also acts loving with me. Our relationship has become like actors with no idea of what is true or not. Am 40 and she is 35. We are also running out of time to have a child. But in all this state I can't seem to want a child and she too refuses treatment. It's a stalemate now and I don't know how to solve the problems and which to tackle first. I am aware that a relationship has to be built on trust and such, but don't know how to break out of this vicious cycle and my seeming addiction of running after women.

I think that your anxiety, which is fear based, irritates you easily and gets you angry. In other words, the anger/irritation is an escalation over the fear. This is not advisable and it is happening because you are not dealing well with the anxiety. Anger is a cover-up feeling for the fear, and people may mistakenly respond to the anger whilst the scare remains unresolved and it may also increase because of the discomfort you have caused to others with the anger! this is why you have been behaving irritable and have now managed to push your girlfriend away for good. About the issue itself: do you know if this is a family trait, or is the family by anyways less to socialize, or have you had any problem with fear because of some family or childhood experience? have you ever been embarrassed in public by someone that it has left an indelible mark in your personality? you can take the answers to these questions to a counselor and resolve the same. Anyway, you must deal with your fear. In the meantime do some confidence building exercises by attending a personality development course, public speaking skills course (i suggest you join the toastmasters club), work out at a gym to build good self-image, and join social events to practice your skills. Surprisingly many people are often in the same boat as you, and so you are not alone. The very people you are intimidated by may be afraid of you too! there are three important developments to have to make an autonomous personality: awareness, intimacy, and spontaneity. If you are super aware or too conscious of yourself, it will affect the intimacy and spontaneity. Although your problem is now directly to do with intimacy, you can see that they are all connected. Go and work on these matters with a counselor for this level of social anxiety to disappear from your life for good.
