This, at the face of it, seems like depression. A detailed evaluation will be needed to evaluate the exact diagnosis. But it appears that this should respond well to treatment. In order to help you better, we will need certain more details like: similar episodes in the past, any other psychological problems in the past, any other medical illnesses and medicines that you may be on. Please get a complete hemogram, TSH and vitamin B12 levels done. Medicines such as fluoxetine or venlafaxine could work very well for you. Besides these, you must start exercising 30 minutes per day even though you may not be feeling like doing so. Go out and meet friends and well wishers even if you dont feel like doing so. Sleep no more than 8 hours a day and no less than 6 hours. Do not lie down on the bed during day. Do not ignore food even though appetite may not be great. These measures will help you. Take care!

Practice yoga and meditation. You have to stop worrying about it, start concentration on your schedules and try repeat in your mind once at least. And recall frequently if you wish or follow a diary with plan for the day/ thing to do/ learn. Once you try this frequently you will remember better. Keep up up physical health and mental rest fully frequently. Practice mental relaxation and breathing exercises.

Alcohol - How it Affects Your Sex Life?

Alcohol - How it Affects Your Sex Life?

Alcohol can it affect your intimacy level with your partner, yes! But with this you might be wondering how can that be possible when you actually sustain yourself for long, maybe longer than you should be. It is probably the “whiskey penis”. Alcohol may give you a sense of elation at one point of time, but it is essentially a nervous depressant. The over consumption of alcohol mainly has a reduced effect on sensitivity for both men and women.

How alcohol affects sex life in men: The effect of alcohol on the sex life of men is immense. In most cases, chronic and acute cases of alcohol consumption have shown to reduce the production of testosterone in men. Since testosterone is the hormone that results in the increase in libido in men, the effects of alcohol really reduce the performance in men. It has shown to reduce pleasurability and it can also reduce the intensity of orgasms. Sometimes, it can cause difficulty in ejaculation or delayed ejaculation.

How alcohol affects sex life in women: Alcohol can have a very mixed effect on women in general. While it can increase sexual arousal and desire, it can also result in low sensitivity. Women have a higher percentage of fat as compared to water in their bodies, this means that alcohol has a more profound effect on their bodies as compared to that in men. Their bodies also take longer to process and eliminate the alcohol. While some women report a heightened sense of sexual arousal and an increase in the duration of the orgasm, a large number of women also complain of lesser lubrication.

Alcohol also has a psychological effect; that is the loss of inhibition that may help in developing carnal instincts when intoxicated. This psychological effect may have a more profound effect than the physiological effects as a result of which women might claim that alcohol does indeed help in better sex. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a sexologist.

Dear lybrate user, if you were diagnosed with bipolar disorder and depression and if you were on medication for last 15 yrs, it will be harmful if you stop medication on your own. Your present anger and restlessness is a result of stopping this medication. I think, you need to understand your condition. You are going to need medication throughout your life for at least bipolar disorder. Please understand that it is like managing bp or sugar with medicines, where the disease is kept under control, with the help of medicines. Regarding your depression, you may start counselling sessions along with the medication, but you need to discuss with your psychiatrist before you stop medicines for depression. It might be frustrating for you to realise that you need to be under medication, life long; because it has side effects. But please understand that if you stop the medicines, it will cause more harm. Please consult a counsellor at the earliest.

I just broke up with my fiancee who also happens to be my business partner. We were living in. Still have to see him everyday after he coldly walked out on me (rather asked me to move out of my house as his parents were living with us). His issues with me were blown out of proportion by his parents resulting in a bad break up. I hv quit my start up with him. Am job hunting. I'm 29 and i'm scared I won't find a good life partner now. I'm depressed. I get anxiety attacks.

Have self respect, this person doesn't deserve you, also you are fortunate that you didn't marry him, and you got timely reminder. Just relax and move on in life, throw them out of your house and don't give them your house. Don't bow down to his dictates, and understand what would have been the situation if you married him. Be quick, relax you will find good partner and man of your life. If you cant handle yourself meet an expert marriage and relationship coach.For further assistance you can concern me privately.

Certainly you would not ejaculate or make full sexual act while watching porn movies, talking adult or making out with partner if somebody try to delay or not ejaculate hold on ejaculation for long time pain is felt later on. So it should not done so. Wish you good health.

Hello, There are many aspects of depression, the more of them you have the more likely you are to have a clinical depression. Some patients feel severely depressed and suicidal. If you have these feelings you should go to the emergency department immediately. Other things that people with depression can feel are sadness, low energy, lack of motivation, poor sleep, irritability, weight gain or loss, poor self image and sometimes even a lack of touch with reality. The more of these symptoms you have the more likely it is that you have serious depression. Treatments for depression include medications, counseling and exercise. Again the more of these you do the better your chance for a successful treatment. Good luck to you,

Hello Doctors, just wanted to explain my Stress and Anxiety problem. I am really in a stress or rather depression which I can say. I for the past 2 months started to think that I am not well and react to even a small boil that comes on my body that makes me think I am with a STD or some major organ failure etc. I only have sex with my wife and not anyone else. BOTH ARE LOYAL TO EACH other SO I DO not HAVE TO SUSPECT HER. But this stress or thinking module made me get a TMJ problem and I am having a pop noise every time I take a hard bite or sometimes my jaw feels like it's getting locked. So I am using a night TMJ mouth appliances. Now for the past 3 days I suddenly developed pain in my left axillary part. Not sure what I did and got that pain and a slight swelling, its makes me get too worried. I tried to see if there is any boils or lump but found nothing. Is it anything serious. The pain is in the left armpit and moves slightly in front (not very much, just upto the end of my armpit hair distance I can say). What can it be and is it something I need to worry about. I seen a Ortho today but he seems to not check that part but just said it could be a strain and gave me an injection with some muscle relaxing tabs. Why am I getting so worried that something wrong is going to happen to me and my stress/anxiety level is high I suppose. Please suggest me what to do. I am also planning to join a fitness centre to reduce my weight from being 150Kgs. Thank you in advance. Will contact if any future ref needed in person.

Dear lybrate-user. Welcome to lybrate. 150 kgs at the age of 27 is too much. You have to bring it down. Regarding the pain, you have nothing to worry. As your ortho said, it could just be muscle cramp. Your problem is health anxiety. Health anxiety disorder treatment consists of cognitive behavioral therapy, life style changes, relaxation therapy and meditation. Once you learn how to manage your anxiety yourself with the help of the above treatment methods, you will be cured. The process is a bit lengthy and could take any period between one year to 2 years according to the depth of the anxiety problem and the circumstances at which the patient lives. Keep the period of treatment in mind, prepare yourself to take up the treatment and consult a psychologist online or in person. Take care.

Respected Sir, Body Dysmorphic Disorder is a perfectly treatable condition and I would ask you to relax and make sure you see a psychiatrist who can give you the necessary help. If you have already tried any form of pschotherapy and it has not been successful, there are still medicines that you can take which will help you with your problem. It will take 3-6 months, but it is perfectly treatable and I am sure that the associated depression would also clear once the underlying disorder is treated. The psychotherapy of choice would be Cognitive Behavioural Therapy but with your associated depressive symptoms, I would suggest that you might need medicines which can only be prescribed by a psychiatrist. I am aware of various psychiatrists based in jalandhar whom you contact for the same or it can be done online but not via this platform as the rules of answering open questions explicitly state that I am not allowed to prescribe any medicines.

Does anxiety cure through medication. Or automatically? I am taking anti depressant medicine like galop plus 10.
Anxiety is when these anxious feelings don't go away – when they're ongoing and happen without any particular reason or cause. It’s a serious condition that makes it hard to cope with daily life. Everyone feels anxious from time to time, but for someone experiencing anxiety, these feelings aren't easily controlled. For the treatment go for counseling. You can take homeopathic medicine which has proven results in anxiety. These medicines are without any side-effects. Regards.

Early morning depression are supposed to be more associated with physiological conditions where medicines can be of help. However your can try some life style changes such as trying to make your mornings brisk by involving in physical exercises such as morning walks. Morning walks outside the home can also be a source of meeting people and socilizing which can help you to divert your attention from the preoccupation with your past. Your of" here and now" method to focus on your present may also be helpful. However finding solution to the problems in the current which is associated with the past can also do wonders.

So many things in mind creat insomnia or depression. First you need to relax your body and mind. Don't over think about the situation and take a chill. Things happen for good in life so first except the reality. And secondly start with yoga and pranayama it will definitely help you in attaining your sleep and your thoughts.

So do not feel and do not worry. It is better to stop the alcohol in future also. It is best for your personality. Ok best wishes.
