You are victim of immaturity and lack of experience in heterosexual relations. this so called love failure may be your first experience,generally leads to failure if you learn from your experience your mistakes then you succeed in geting romentic love in future. if you breakdown in nervousness then you learn nothing.think why you failed and decide about not making such mistakes again.read psychology books learn about relationship.learn about feminine psychology. there are medicine like olenzapine which may help you forget her.but there is no harm if you remember as a person you like a good friend who is not with you.take energy from her pleasant memory.set a goal in life and disolve your psychic energy in it's achievement.

Sorry to inform you that there is nothing you can do to increase the size of your penis. It is good that you have a lot of healthy habits but that has no contribution to the size of your sexual organ. But here perhaps is huge consolation, when we men look at our penis from above as we can normally do, it always appears as small. The only way we can compare and determine whether it is smaller than most others’ organs are is by measuring it in its placid size and when it is enlarged in sexual excitement. And the other great news for you to know is that size does not matter for sexual gratification, either for you or your partner. In fact when the penis is smaller (I do not mean too small as in tiny!) and the woman is very excited, her cervix attempts to reach the tip of your penis and it is of immense satisfaction to her! If your organ was large she may not be able to do so and will lose on that special gratification. Now the masturbation of twice a day may be connected to this fear of a small penis: masturbation will never increase the size. The other fear is that you will become addicted to masturbation inadvertently and there may be other repercussions to worry about. So masturbate in moderation.

Dear lybrate user, it is better for your daughter to continue the medicines prescribed by the doctor, for the time being. But along with this she certainly needs counselling. She might have a number of issues at this age, which she may not be able to share with anyone. The counselling process will give her an outlet to express herself and understand her own mind. Cbt will work for her, but don't insist on it. Let the counsellor decide which therapy will suit your daughter. Most counsellors would use" integrative therapy" which might be more useful. Once she is able to modify her thought processes and behaviour, her depression might go away, only then after consulting the counsellor and your doctor, you can stop the medication. Take care.

What you think becomes reality, so eliminate negative thoughts and write down positive affirmations like for eg" I can do it" paste it everywhere in your room see it every time you leave or enter. Mentally imagine yourself getting successful in what you want. Read the book" the secret" surround yourself with positive people and try to find out positive in everything.

Dear , you are just 20 and you should concentrate more on your education and career rather than worrying about affairs. You can go and talk to her and tell her your intentions. If she agree, fine. If not, forget it and concentrate on your education. I think one or two telephone counseling sessions with me should provide you with insight to your problem and tips to over come it. Please let me know if you are willing for telephone counseling session. Take care.

My brother had distorted thoughts and was in a depressing state last month and we consulted the psychiatrist. She diagnosed him to be suffering from psychotic disorder but thankfully this is at a very initial stage. She also prescribed medicines risnia and dicorate for a week initially and then eventually for a month once a day. With medicines he became fine. Cud also have sound sleep and remained happy. Our parents and I supported him throughout, also took him out every other day for movies or dining out, etc. She also advised us to consult a psychologist for counselling. However within 2-3 sessions we found that the counselling was a waste of time since this psychologist was only giving general knowledge to my brother. Though one month of medicine is over. My brother has continuously been complaining of mild pain in his head, especially in his temple area. Do we need to again visit the psychiatrist or should we consult a neurosurgeon? We at home are confused right now, what to do?

1. Consult a psychiatrist on a regular basis and get all investigations including medical, neurological etc. So that in future to avoid any kind of relapse if it occurs. 2. A clinical psychologist's role in such cases is generally to psycho educate patient or family members (as you said psychologist was just giving general knowledge) as psychotic disorders are considered chronic mental illness therefore medications are the first line of prescriptions to deal with this. 3. As part of your role and other family members is more crucial here and I appreciate that you have supported him and this is good way to overcome and better management of his problem. 4. Consult a neurologist for headache and get all investigations done for this.

How to Deal with OCD

CERTIFICATE COURSE IN HOMOEOPATHIC CARDIOLOGY, M.D.(HOMOEO.)PSYCHIATRY, B.H.M.S.(BACHELOR OF HOMOEOPATHIC MEDICINE & SURGERY.)
Psychiatrist, Delhi
How to Deal with OCD

Obsessive Compulsive Disorder is also known as OCD. It is a mental ailment that causes specific changes in the brain as well as the behaviour of the patient. It can also cause severe anxiety and lead the patient to consume a lot of time for completing even the most normal tasks. These obsessions are like thoughts, images and even videos playing where the cause of a certain action becomes more profound with the number of imagined risks if it is not done in a specific way, as per the mind of the patient. These turn into repetitive actions undertaken by the patient, where these actions are known as compulsions.

Hence the term: obsessive compulsive disorder. Washing, cleaning, losing control, contamination fears and more are only a few of the thoughts that plague patients suffering from this disorder. While this disorder may not have a specific cure, there are various ways in which it can be managed. Let us look at some of these methods.

Causes of OCD

The exact cause of OCD is unknown. It is generally considered unlikely that OCD develops purely psychologically as a consequence of the way we are brought up.

  1. Genetics and Physiology: It is generally accepted that OCD arises from differences in the physiology of the brain in people with the condition.
  2. Serotonin: Lack of serotonin activity appears to be involved in causing OCD. Serotonin is a calming and inhibitory neurotransmitter, one of its main actions is to control and put the brakes on painful, worrying or anxious thoughts.
  3. Traumatic Life Events: Traumatic emotional events such as bereavement may trigger or worsen OCD in people who already have a tendency to have the condition.

Treatment of OCD

For best results in treating this troublesome anxiety disorder combine brain-chemistry balancing approaches with psychotherapy techniques.

  1. Nutritional Therapy: Try tryptophan and St John's Wort to increase serotonin. Rhodiola has been shown to help generalised anxiety disorder however Rhodiola has the ability to raise 'brain energy' and therefore hypothetically may exa-sperate OCD symptoms. 
  2. The Inositol Treatment of OCD: Inositol, one of the B vitamins, has been found effective in treating OCD. Inositol is used in biochemical processes that affect serotonin receptors.
  3. Psychotherapy: This is also known as discussion or talk therapy where the patient is allowed to engage with a therapist who is usually a psychiatrist or a clinical psychologist. The doctor will help the patient in first of all, becoming aware of the problem by helping the patient carry out various tasks in a controlled environment. These tasks will be timed and then relayed to the patient before the exposure therapy begins, where the patient will be taught to build a better quality of life. This a long term and time taking process which can also involve group sessions and sessions with the family members. Also, this method takes a lot of practice so that the patient learns how to regulate the obsessions and stop the compulsive behaviour gradually.
  4. Exercise: Numerous studies have shown the benefits of exercise upon mental health. So, a minimum of 20mins of daily exercise can help you a lot.
  5. Relaxation Training & Meditation: Learning meditation and relaxation techniques may enhance one's ability to control anxiety and one's thoughts in general.
  6. Medication: There are various kinds of medicines that can be prescribed for these patients. Anti-depressants can help the patient in overcoming the fears and anxiety that a person feels when the wheels of one's imagination begin to turn towards obsessive thoughts. This will also help in tackling the hopelessness that the person feels when faced with the so called depressing outcome of not bowing to the compulsive habits.

Putting It All Together

  • Follow the diet for serotonin deficient depression, and GABA deficient anxiety.
  • Consult with a qualified therapist using behavioural rather than analytical techniques.
  • Do some repetitive mind-occupying/filling as opposed to mind-emptying meditations everyday.

Chronic intake of alcohol will defntly cause adverse effects on your health gradually. The important organ that will be effected by alcohol is majorly liver, which is vital organ of body. So, its better to make it reduced gradually the quantity wise& frequency wise.

Depression can happen to anyone  and does happen to one in four of us over our lifetimes.  Different factors that make it more likely to happen include biological make up, upbringing, or reactions to life events. What keeps it going though is how we deal with those things. The way we think and what we do affects the way we feel. Thinking differently: * STOP take a pause, do relaxation breathing. And ask yourself. What I am racing to- is it fact or opinion? Or is it a negative thinking? * Do something different to divert mind from these thoughts * learn Mindfulness activity and breathing * Self hypnosis helps to reinforce positive thoughts and positive self image * Use positive self talk * Engage in a hobby. Most importantly even when one is depressed he is not always experiencing depression. No two moments are same. Look closely. Each moment is new. Be Happy!

Heart over Head
Expressing emotions.... Emotional wellness
Emotions can be understood from a solid tree. Roots tell about the foundation and values, stem its integrity, branches its behaviour and flowers are its emotions. If a tree attracts bees, birds and human beings it is magnetic and that is its emotional wellness. Emotional wellness makes you magnetic.Like tree, emotions cannot be permanent. That is why they are called “emotions”-- the word comes from motion, movement. They move; hence they are emotions. Emotions are dynamic like waves on water, they change continuously. This moment you are sad, that moment you are happy; this moment you are angry, that moment you are compassionate. This moment you love, another moment full of hatred; the morning was beautiful, the evening is ugly. And this goes on.This cannot be your nature, because behind all these changes something is needed like a thread that holds all of them together. You continue as an entity – so what is the thread, the polestar? What is permanent in you? There are two types of emotions – expressive and repressive. Expressive emotions might hurt others but repressive emotions will hurt you. The root of all illness and disease is repressive emotions, if you are repressed; it slowly hurts you in a holistic way and eventually affects your expressive emotions. The key to success is to create a balance between these two emotions like riding a bicycle.Emotions have to be relieved, relaxed. When you feel like crying you have to cry; when you feel like laughing you have to laugh. You have to drop this nonsense of repression; you have to learn expression, because only through your sentiments, your emotions, your sensitivity, do you come to that vibration through which communication is possible. If one has to choose between the head and the heart, one should choose the heart, because all the beautiful values of life belong to the heart. The head is a good mechanic, technician, but you cannot live your life joyously just by being a mechanic, a technician, a scientist. The head has no capacity for joy, for blissfulness, for silence, for innocence, for beauty, for love, for all that makes the life rich -- it is the heart that has this capacity.You have been taught never to be angry and you think that a person who is never angry is bound to be very loving. You are wrong. A person who is never angry will not be able to love either. They go together; they come in the same package. A person who really loves will sometimes be really angry. But that anger is beautiful – it is out of love! The energy is hot, and you will not feel hurt by the person’s anger. In fact, you will feel grateful that the person was angry. Have you watched it? If you love someone and you do something and the person is really angry, frankly angry, you feel grateful because he loved you so much that he can afford the anger.If you love yourself and that is a must in life, you will never be repressive, you will be expressive of whatsoever life gives: its joys, its sadness, its peaks, its lows, its days, and its nights. Remember, all negative emotions need energy; they drain you. And all positive emotions and positive attitudes are dynamos of energy; they create more energy, they never drain you.If you are happy, suddenly the whole world flows toward you with energy, the whole world laughs with you. The whole existence goes on giving you more. You are not a burden, you are a flower, you are not a rock and you are a bird. The whole existence feels happy about you.Being emotionally well is more than just handling stress. It also involves being attentive to your thoughts, feelings and behaviours, whether positive or negative.Emotional wellness implies the ability to be aware of and accept our feelings, rather than deny them, have an optimistic approach towards life, and enjoy life despite its occasional disappointments and frustrations.The path to emotional wellness may involve awareness of thoughts and feelings, having a positive attitude, seeking support and expressing emotions in a suitable manner. Setting priorities, accepting mistakes and learning from them are other factors.Practice a few steps like protect your self esteem, take control after a failure, distract yourself from brooding thoughts and find meaning after a loss. Practice physical wellness by doing breathing exercises and manage your daily stress.

I am 55 years old. Suffering from depression/anxiety/bipolar disorder. Taking medicines since 1979. Have no pleasure in life. Also suicidal thoughts. What is the remedy? how to get better?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Yes, you will have suicidal thoughts but not if you were also working on these issues with a counselor. For all of these many years you have delayed getting better by failing to combine therapy with medicines. The challenges of everyday living pose a major stress to people and they learn to cope with it through various adaptations, techniques, and tools. In the case of the bipolar condition your adjustability is more difficult than the normal population. Apart from this there are many issues of the mind that medication cannot address, and these are ideally worked out in therapy. Please put yourself on a tight time-schedule with exercises, interesting activities, functional occupations; and being a contributor to your family and society at large. Eat healthily, sleep well, and go for regular counseling. There is a lot of anger that is not being dealt with for many years too. Suicide is not an option even though it may appeal to you because of your struggles. You can live a good life subject to your doing more in the manner explained above. Life will then look full of hope; and many of your desires will and can be fulfilled.

Dear lybrate-user. Dark circle has many causes. Smoking won't have much effect on skin around your eyes. See your physician or psychiatrist and get urself evaluated. Till then you maintain your sleep time, diet and do exercise for 40 min. Maintain your water intake 3 to 3.5 L.this will improve your problem.

Meet an expert, this questions cant be solved this way. You may be having insecurities and fear. Just relax. Ask yourself what bothers you? have a positive self-talk, and learn what are those things you don't like. You need to accept your self and move on. You need to take care of your lifestyle and learn to be happy. If you cant do it yourself, meet a life coach/ stress management super-specialist like me. Once you open your heart out, you will feel free and begin to fly in life. I assure you that I can manage this and help u.

You need to be careful because porn may provide great sexual entertainment but it also stokes the desire, which will then lead to desire-fulfillment and that will lead to impulses. It actually objectifies women and sex to levels that makes you lose respect for them. Besides, the whole thing is dramatized to such crazy levels of performance (that is why it sells too) that you are made to feel grossly inadequate. It is really far from the reality, and these are exceptional actors, with some exceptional endowments and actions that you may even look at your own spouse (later when you get married, that is) with disdain, or inadequacies that is most unfair. After you have been stimulated you are left hungry in your groin to want to fulfill your desires, and if not met soon, leaves you with that raving libido, and it can goad you to do something inappropriate. In essence it spoils a very beautiful thing and reduces it to mere physical impulses. After some time you get disgusted when you have had too much of it; whereas natural sex will never cause that affect at all. If you have so much of sexual energy you can channelize it into activities, sports, games, and hobbies. You need to distract yourself when the drive is very strong in you, which may be so if your levels of testosterone are very high too. You need to socialize with members of the opposite sex and enjoy their company to experience the different aspects of a woman and to also feel the different aspects of sex and not get frozen in the carnal part of it alone. Sex has five different dimensions to it: there is the physical aspect, the emotional aspect, the intellectual aspect, the social aspect and finally there is the spiritual aspect. The latter may surprise you but this is where respect and regard for women and their bodies will come up to help treat them with value. If you cultivate these dimensions of sex I am sure you will perceive women differently and with a lot of respect. Eventually when you are into a serious relationship with a woman, you will truly enjoy the whole concept of romance and being and falling in love with the real thing: That my friend will be a different ball-game. Do not play with a poor replica of sex, and shy away from the real person and thing, which are so wholesome. Here are some things you can do to get back your concentration and memory: Daily exercise of at least half an hour is a must. Even if you go to a gym, ask for aerobic and/or callisthenic exercises with whatever else you are doing. A healthy body harbors a healthy mind. With regard to memory, it is very important that your brain and body is ideally rested to be able to recall whatever is required, rather comfortably. Puzzles pose problems to the brain that help it to use new pathways and neurons, which give the brain considerable exercise. It taxes the left brain to use logic to solve the myriad possibilities which other activities do not stimulate. Crosswords are excellent for vocabulary learning and use. Jigsaws and Rubik cube stimulate different permutations to finally settle on the most likely one. Picture completion and anagrams help approach problem solving from several angles. Do Sudoku, and memory co-relation activities and skills. Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber (whole grains, fruits and vegetables), nuts, avocado, eat dark chocolate, consume less of fat and use olive oil instead, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. You need to check out if you are stronger visual or auditory. The visual is a better mode than the auditory. However, if you combine the two modes, you will get the best concentration. Have a special place of learning, which should be well lit, with soft painted walls, well-ventilated, with no distractions. When you get bored, study by writing. If you repeat learning at least five to seven times, you will apparently remember for a longer time. Sit comfortably but do not slouch. The reading material should be of a fairly large print. Study at small intervals of about 40 minutes and then take a break or change the subject. Short-term memory is a faculty of the left brain, and long-term memory is a feature of the right brain. When people are stressed, they tend to favor the right brain and abandon the left brain, where short-term memory resides. So, it is really very simple: deal with the stress and activate left brain functions. Here are a few suggestions to activate left brain function: 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. There is a new exercise called Super Brain Yoga, which is done by holding the right earlobe with your left thumb and index finger, and the left earlobe with your right hand’s thumb and index finger. In this position you must squat down and rise up and do this for five minutes every day. There are some memory enhancing techniques and study methods that your teacher will be able to guide you with. If your home life is full of distractions and stress, it is likely to affect your memory, adversely. In that case, I suggest that the family goes for counseling too. The following foods do help too: Blueberries, walnuts, turmeric, Spinach, tomatoes, broccoli, acorn squash, green tea, oily fish, boiled egg, turkey, apples, oatmeal, leafy greens, lentils, pumpkin seeds, avocado, cinnamon, thyme, sunflower seeds, and red wine. Avoid sugar and junk food.

I would recommend you not to put pressure while urinating. Let the urine come out naturally. If some little amount of urine remains back in the bladder it is not an issue. Don't bother. The bladder has the capacity to store a lot of urine otherwise. If you strain while urinating you may cause other problems. If you are facing burning sensations or increased frequency. Please consult a urologist. Hope this answer has helped you in some way. Do let me know if you have any other queries.
