If family is not staying with you. Better to develop a very good friendly relations with others. In office or your environment. Please talk in phone with your family members who close to you. Do not be alone. Aloneness is a very dangerous thing. Attend social gatherings. Spend time social media. Recreate yourself go movies, visit new places. Share every feeling with your close friends. Enjoy every movement of life. Best of luck.

Sir , I am masturbating for about 5-6 years. I am not able to control it , even if I try to control it , once if I am feeling a little comfortable I always start masturbating for even a very pity reason. At present I am feeling very weak , I am getting afraid of even a small mosquito or a housefly when I am alone and they make some sound or sit on any part of my body. And I am not able to converse properly if I am involved in any argument I am shaking and shivering as if someone is going to kill me. I don' t know why but I am not able to control my emotions. I am getting demotivated easily , I am getting angry for pity reason , sometimes I am getting very depressed. I don' t know what happened to me. I keep thinking of even a small situation for many days , and this is one of the reason why I am always absent minded. I am not able to keep relationships bonds proper even with my own family members (brothers , sisters , mother , father aunt , uncle etc ) . I am not able to concentrate in my studies , I know I can do it I understand things , their concepts easily only if I read and understand it with full dedication but I am not able to stay focussed towards my studies I study only for 20-30 minutes and I start losing my energy and concentration. But if I play I play properly , energetically but after that I am very - very much tired. I am no able to handle even a small situation , that other people does no even bother about .I am not able to fight with anyone I am very bad looking many people say this. These are my problems. What can I do for them?

Dear lybrate user, I think you are very sensitive, anxious and underconfident. I guess you are carrying some shame and/or guilt because of your compulsive masturbation. I appreciate your self awareness and your willingness to change. I think, you need to understand your own worth. Make a list of all good things about you. Write all positive points about your personality and skills that you have. Don't bother about what others say about you. Write what you think about yourself - all positive points. Stick this list at a place where you can see it often. Believe in this. You are only 17, you have whole life ahead of you. What you do today is going to affect your future. If you try to make yourself stronger physically and mentally, you will have a better future. Have a goal in life which would be rational and feasible. Start working towards achieving this goal. Make a step by step, concrete plan, have a fixed routine and go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Learn some communication skills which will help you in having cordial relations with people around you. Have some exercise routine - may be play some games (physical games and not computer games), go for cycling, yoga, mountaineering etc whatever you like. This will give you more self confidence and help in reducing your anxiety. Any person who is happy and confident looks good. So don't worry about looks. Once you start feeling better about yourself, you will like yourself - looks wise. If possible talk to your school/college counsellor who will help you to get rid of this habit.

I am smoking for 4 years. I was having dry cough for a month. Today suddenly when I woke up in evening I coughed blood, in very less quantity though, but that made me worried. Can you help me.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Yes, that is indeed worrying. Please go for a medical check-up to an ENT specialist, immediately. And the obvious measure you must take is to stop smoking completely. This is a reactive measure but it has to be done. In future, you must become proactive and prevent the likelihood of problems before they occur. You have to quit cold turkey because the body and mind will torture you endlessly while attempting a reduction in smoking. The tobacco tar in cigarette smoke lines your lung with huge patches that make that portion dysfunctional. Your oxygen carrying capacity is jeopardized, and breathing is impinged on. But don’t be discouraged because it is not too late even now to reverse all the ill-effects of smoking. I don’t know what other organs could be damaged but do go for a thorough medical check-up to assess the effects of your abuse. Regarding improving your lungs, do a lot of aerobic exercise breathing through your nostrils only. Then there are a lot of deep breathing exercises in Yoga which you can learn too. Deep breathing cleanses your system and lungs and restores it to good health. Deep breathing uses the 80% of the lungs which are not normally used in normal breathing and even when exerting yourself. The greatest effect is in the lungs because this substance is processed through the respiratory system directly through the lung surface. When quitting, you must take one day at a time; though you must give up all smoking at once, and promptly. If you look too far ahead you will get discouraged and will give up. If you sit and count the number of days you have given up, that will also focus too much on achievement. You must focus on the here and now, on that day to be precise. After all quitting is not that easy due to many factors. So even if you fail one day, you must try and try again. Very few people succeed in their first attempt. Your persistence will eventually pay off. The urge to discontinue is hampered by many factors but the worst of them is the conditioning. In fact, these conditions can exist all through the day, unlike other addictions. But your desire to want to stop is the most important factor. It is important to find out about the ill-effects of smoking to have a reason that alarms you about continuing the habit. The information is really scary but true and you must remind yourself about this every day. The nicotine in tobacco smoke stimulates the heartbeat to raise the blood pressure in no time at all. So you must avoid it like the plague: it is just very bad medicine for you. In fact, it is highly toxic too. You will need to stop smoking or consuming any tobacco related items with immediate effect. You should start vigorous exercises, gradually increasing it over a period of time. Do deep breathing exercises every time you feel like smoking (try Yoga), and replace the oral urge with some healthy food substitute to satiate the need. You may also take hard candy or chew gum. If the urge is too strong, then use nicotine gums and nicotine patches, for a little while until the smoking drive reduces, substantially. You may also join Smokers Anonymous in your city where the support is really extraordinary for like-minded people who are also in the same situation. Keep yourself occupied or engaged with interesting activities during the times when it is most tempting. Keep the company of non-smokers for some time i.e. at least for the first 21 days. Above all announce it to everyone that you have quit smoking. Here’s a piece of very good advice: even if you accidentally/willfully take a cigarette, it is not the end of the world – you can start the cessation all over again. You must persevere with the best support until you defeat this addiction. Counseling is very useful in the initial stages and when temptations are at their highest. You could also join twitter2quit program and enjoy its success to give up smoking.

Dear lybrate user, your daughter needs to get rid of her ocd and needs treatment for ocd, pcod and obesity. Marriage is not the solution, it will create more problems in her life, if she gets married without getting treated for her ailments. She probably has low self esteem and may have a few suppressed emotions. It is advisable that you take her to a counsellor. The counsellor will help her to open up and express her feelings. The counsellor will help her to modify her thought processes and thereby will help her have higher self esteem and confidence. This will motivate her to take care of her body and mind and thereby help her in reducing her weight and discard thoughts which are harmful.

I am suffering from Lupus Nephritis since 4 years. Now the protein level has come in the range level since 4 months. I am taking Mycept 500 (BD). Doctors are not stopping my medicine. Can you help?

It's too risky to stop medicines completely. The risk of taking medicines is much lesser than not taking it. I will trust your doctors opinion. In any case even if protein has become normal doesn't mean everything has become silent. Lupus is mostly a lifelong disease. So your doctor will see whole picture before stopping it and if they feel it's risk they won't. Trust them and discuss with them Best wishes

I am a 24 year old girl. I had a breakup and I am feeling low. I am a bit introvert, unable entire share my thoughts. The reason for the breakup was because he doesn't wanted to marry me.

M.Sc - Applied Psychology
Psychologist, Bangalore
Dear lybrate-user, its hard emotionally after a breakup and becomes even more harder if the person never had intentions of including you in lifes larger plans but is not it better that he communicated it to you so that you were free to make a choice than to keep you hanging with an unclear promise! young people of your age are still in stage of understanding what kind of partner they would like to have in their life and how they make choices depends on their awareness of their own selfs and needs and value system. Maybe your ex boy friends value system was not same as yours, maybe his expectations of a partner were different from yours, maybe his goals, dreams and aspirations were different as yours. If the bond is strong then with mutual understanding and love many of the difference are taken care of but that requires a huge amount of maturity. So if the break up has happened, you know why it has happened. Being an introvert surely makes moving on a bit difficult but nontheless its not impossible. You may hesitate to talk to known people and thats okay. You can definitely try consulting a counsellor as there will be a certain amount of comfort factor with regards to anonymity, also this platform will provide you the space to let out all the hurt, grief and pain that you must be holding inside you which should be let out or else they sure know how to create havoc in our mind and life. In counselling you will also be able to explore what works for and what does not besides getting in touch with your belief and value systems, see which ones are limiting your potentials and which are directing your life. Hope this was helpful for you.

You must check out the leg pains with a doctor, immediately. Sounds to me like you are into an anger related depression. If you have not been on medication and you want to remain so, you will have to work very hard to recover from this condition. You must first of all seek the help of a counselor, ideally. If that person thinks that you need to meet with a doctor you will need to do so and cooperate right through. In the meantime please do the following sincerely because you could resolve the problem better with good cooperation: Have a good night���s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber, nuts, avocado, exercise regularly, eat dark chocolate, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. I suggest you do the opposite of what this depression makes you feel like doing (actually, not doing): you will need to fight this condition. You must become active; stay upright during the daylight time; meet people; never sleep during the day, wake up by 6 am every day, play some active games, especially contact games, do physical exercises, talk to people and join some social clubs, attend Yoga classes etc. Watch sitcoms on TV or comedies and cheer yourself up. Go for excursions in groups, for outings, camps, conferences, and religious conventions. Get a pet dog and spend time training it, exercising it and relating to it. Expose yourself to some sunlight every day, at least 30 minutes but not in the scotching heat. Whatever happens, please incorporate these three important adaptations in your life: always be responsible, be respectful, and be functional. If you did these three, lots of things will go well in life. Please pray and have faith in God to alleviate your sufferings. Don���t wait for others to help. Use your own motivation, which might be at its lowest, but persevere and win this battle. Above all to be really happy, you need to live in love and for love: find someone to love and to love you back, if you are not already married. Learn all about emotions and how to handle them and that will get you out of the depression rather easily and quickly. A counselor is there only to facilitate you, all the hard word must come from you, and your cooperation with that person is very critical for your success. Be positive everyday and learn to be contended with what you have. Do some left brain exercises: it is the happy brain. Here are a few suggestions: 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. Whatever happens please cooperate with the therapy and do not discontinue until the condition is completely resolved.

What makes you think that identification or diagnosis of depression is of any help? if at all depression is not a pathology, it is a vague clubbing of particular thought patterns. The root cause of depression is our value system, which says you should be someone. One is always in the process of being someone (happy, rich, kind, religious. Peaceful) there is an eternal psychological conflict between" what you are" and what you ought to be. Expectation brings frustration. The more the expectation the more the frustration. And the more you struggle to be depression -free, the longer it will stay, can you let it die its own death? or keep grappling with it?

This is a very delicate and important phase of your married life: the first two years is when you build your relationship and learn to make all the adjustments for the rest of your lives. According to how these two years go, the rest of your life will be the same. So you are already starting on the wrong foot! If it is the others in the family then speak to your husband and move out and live on your own, if you can afford it. This is the best solution because if you lived in his house you are an in-law and cannot say anything. Whereas, if you lived in your own home, you can live in peace and live to love each other. Show him this response and see what he has to say. If he is not willing to listen then do meet with a marriage counselor and get talking about solutions, and that person can also help you to learn to live in the same house if you went for what is called ‘continuing counseling’.

Hi. I'm sorry to hear about your mother. From what you describe, she seems to be suffering from mental illness, the nature of which can only be clearly ascertained after detailed evaluation. Many people suffering from mental illness are resistant to visiting doctors, and families are often not able to force them to consult a doctor, leading to a delay in commencement of care, and consequent long term damage. I would suggest you to take the assistance of the local police for escorting her to a psychiatrist. Another option is to contact your local hospital's psychiatry department. Many hospitals (especially government run mental health institutions, such as ihbas, in delhi) have mobile mental health units for this very purpose. Take care.

Yes, you can go for memory tonics. Apart from that, try to meditate for 15 minutes daily in the morning and evening. Also, do not completely avoid music, you can hear it from time to time. Try concentration exercises like: take a book or a magazine and count the number of words in a single paragraph. Count them again to ensure that you have counted correctly. You can start off with one paragraph and as you get used to it, move on to counting words in two paragraphs. Then move on to counting words on the whole page. Make sure that you perform the counting mentally and only with your eyes without pointing your finger at each word. This is one of the simplest brain exercises to improve concentration. Select an inspiring word or just a simple sound and think about it in your mind, repeating it in your mind for 5 minutes. Once your mind has begun to concentrate on it easily, move on to 10 minutes of uninterrupted concentration. When you start feeling drained out just tell yourself 5 more pages and stay with the book.
