Dear doctor, I am 24 years old girl single. May be get married by six months. I have a great gud hearted friend in life. I like him a lot, sometimes I feel like he is more than a friend n he feels the same. But we both never shared this feeling to each other. We became friends in facebook 5 years ago. N we met 3 years ago. I never felt any insecurity with him as he is unique n very very good hearted brave and kind person. To be fair I fell in love with him but I never revealed it to him, though I propose him, he can not marry me right now, he has many responsibilities and ambitions in life. So I dont wanna make him in a trouble as he can think about marriage only after 5 yrs. He is 26 now. Now what my problem is. I recently went to a women's expo from there I got lot of information regarding pregnancy and other girls health issues and also about sex life. On that day I came back to home and shared my day with him, and showed him some pics regarding pregnancy taken at the expo. For the first time we chatted about these kind of things and it made him tempted. After that he started a lit bit flirting with me but I managed him. He became so. Open to me chatting these things in these days and I never restricted him as I like it. But still. We are good friends never crossed the limit. He is now far away from me. We chat on WhatsApp only. Recently He was very depressed and I tried to make him normal. While chatting He asked me to have a hot chat. But to maintain the friendship's beauty I refused it. He said that sexting can make both of us feel relaxed as I too have some depressions in life. But still I refused his request. I really do not want to spoil the beauty of a friendship. But on the other side I want to help him. At least for a one time he is asking to have a hit chat just to relax. I am very much confused doctor. Should I go for it? Or should I not? If I do hot chat with him what are the things I should be careful? Sometimes I feel like it is like cheating my future hubby.(but My friend is also a good guy n I dont feel any kind of insecurities with him. Even I too get tempted to have hot chat with him. What should I do doctor?

Hello miss a lot of boys and girls mix around a lot, there is much more freedom in knowing every friendship is not branded as romantic relationship. In addition today's youth have internet and chat media available to them with lots of privacy and freedom. But there is also a lot confusion amongst friendships as to where to draw the line. On the chat media people tend to open up lot more and expose even their weaknesses. All people who chat with you may not have honest and honorable intentions. There are a lot of sex predators who can cheat you and use you by getting you involved in sex crimes. Hot sext chats can be called sex crimes too, because here the other person is using you to get his sexual gratification. Once you discussed some reproductive issues with your friend and he now thinks you may be available for entertaining his sexual needs? just observe this, what does that tell you? he is not interested in committed relationship with you but wants you to engage in such practices, do you think he is really trustworthy? all mobile and internet chats can be recorded and accessed by the server. The person you are chatting with can use them against you and tell other people that you are a girl with loose morale and lack character, furthermore he may use one time incidence to pressurise you into doing similar or more dangerous things with his other friends. Keep all the possibilities in mind and stay away from chat media. If your friend does not appreciate your safety and honour, simply block him, but do protect your self.

5 surprising ways that stress affects your brain

Chronic stress might make you more susceptible to mental illness.

In a study published in molecular psychiatry, researchers found that chronic stress results in long-term changes in the brain. These changes, they suggest, might help explain why those who experience chronic stress are also more prone to mood and anxiety disorders later on in life.

Researchers from the university of california - berkeley performed a series of experiments looking at the impact of chronic stress on the brain.

They discovered that such stress creates more myelin-producing cells, but fewer neurons than normal. The result of this disruption is an excess of myelin in certain areas of the brain, which interferes with the timing and balance of communication.

In particular, the researchers looked at how stress impacted the brain's hippocampus. They suggest that stress might play a role in the development of mental disorders such as depression and various emotional disorders.

I'm an alcoholic, recently I done my lipids & sgpt test. At present I was advised to take UDILIV 300 twice daily with ROSUVAS F 20 during night only. Every time when I tried to withdraw alcohol I had PANIC ATTACK. Is it possible to take a little amount of alcohols per week with the above mentioned drugs or I should take some medicine instead of alcohol?? My sgpt level is 61.

You cannot have memory problems at the age of 26 unless you have any shock or wasting or brain degenerating diseases. Simple and routine memory problems occur to everyone because of their overwhelming tasks or overwhelming lazyness. This cannot be considered as memory loss. If you have memory problems, keep things in writings according to priority. Take care.

How can I abort myself at my home . I think I am pregnant of around 1 month . I don't want to go to the doctor. Due to society and all . I will be in danger and I am right now in depressed state . Please do reply. And all the thing and measures to be taken at home . I don't want to go any where and to anyone .

MBBS, DPM
Psychiatrist, Bangalore
Dear lybrate-user, why do you want to abort the child? think before you decide to abort. Think of the advantages of aborting and disadvantages of aborting. The same exercise for continuing the pregnancy. Remember that there is no option with all advantages only. For the advantages of that option you need to carry the disadvantages along. You have another 4-8 weeks time to think and to act on these options. At the end of this exercise, if you plan to abort for the advantages of it, here are the disadvantages. Your health may be at risk during abortion. If the uterus does not heal well or get infected, there are more chances for tubes to be blocked. That means you may not bear a child later on your life. Remember that abortion is legalised in india. No questions will be asked. You can go to any government gynecologist and demand abortion without giving reasons. You can sign the consent form yourself, because you are major. Discuss your options with your close friend/boy friend. You will be able to hear your voice. Or write them slowly on a piece of paper and send it to me. It will help you to make informed decisions. Don't be worried about the disadvantages of your decision. You have many strengths in your life with which you can deal with those disadvantages. All the best. Get back on private consultation after doing the homework exercise. You have time. With knowledge, you will make better decisions.

Hello, your wife is in need of a life coach who can guide her. In truth she requires a Psychologist who can uncover and undo the thoughts she is having in a therapeutic setting. However as she is showing paranoid ideation ie doubting on you, she may not be ready to go to a Psychologist. In this case you can ask her to take online sessions with me as I am a Life Coach as well. Regards.

I am 55 Yrs old I Suffered from clinical depression, for nearly18 years I took treatment from psychiatrists, and was also given lithium treatment. Lithium levels was low in my blood. Now I am OK, But I am scared about a relapse. Please advise.

MBBS, MD - Psychiatry

Lithium is usually given in Bipolar disorder and in some psychiatric disorder like depression, psychosis etc as augmenting agent. But a specific blood level is required to produce its effect. Also you have to know about its toxicity. Drink plenty of water. Always ask doctors prior to taking other medication especially pain killers. Perform regular test for serum lithium level.

Time is not in your hands. What will happen next nobody can know. But every body have to prepare for all the happenings and mishappenings. Tell this to your soul and mind during meditation. This will help you to come out of it. Do some relaxation therapy with your self with some breathing exercise. When you feel relax you feel batter for your life.

Dear Aditya, at your age, Memory problems like amnesia, dementia or Alzheimer's are not common. Many young people do complain having problems with memory. These problems are due to either they are too busy or due to anxiety and stress. Busy people use organizers or employ a personal assistant because they can't remember every task. You need to understand this. If you still say, you are having memory problems, we need to check your memory using memory test. You may contact a clinical psychologist or neurologist for memory test and further investigation. Take care.

Dear lybrate-user, children never studies. They always learn from experiences. They learn from what ever they do with interest. When they learn such, they cannot forget too. That is the reason why the curricula of children are always made interactive, with entertainment and play. In home also you should try to make the child learn with the help of kindergarten techniques. Take care.

Dear lybrate user. Dreams has nothing to do with past, present or future life. They are just illusions of your subconscious mind. Do not take those dreams seriously, because if you take them seriously, you will loose your present too. Ignore them. Once you ignore them, they will not come again and again and disturb you. Take care.

General Physician,
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

I have started smoking when I was 17. Now I'm 20 years old I wanna give up smoking I'm trying from past 1 nd half year. I used herbal tablets but no use I can't give up. I really wanna quit but something not letting happen. Please give me a best solution.

M.Phill
Psychologist, Chennai
Start your stop smoking plan with start s- set a quit date: choose a date within the next 2 weeks, so you have enough time to prepare without losing your motivation to quit, if you mainly smoke at work, quit on the weekend, so you have few days to adjust to the change. T- tell family, friends and co-workers that you plan to quit: let your friends and family in on your plan to quit smoking and tell them you need their support and encouragement to stop. Look for a quit buddy who wants to stop smoking as well. You can help each other get through the rough times. A- anticipate and plan for the challenges you'll face while quitting: most people who begin smoking again do so within the first 3 months. You can help yourself make it through by preparing ahead for common challenges, such as nicotine withdrawal and cigratte cravings. R- remove cigrattes & other products from your home, car and work: throw away all of your cigarettes, lighter, ashtrays and matches. Wash your clothes and freshen up anything that smells like smoke. T- talk to your doctor about getting help to quit: your doctor can prescribe medication to help with withdrawal.

Hi.I am on antidepressant nexito 10 from almost 6 years now. I feel side effects like fatigue and my weight has also increased.

First of all do not attempt to self-regulate the medication. Only a psychiatrist, who is not only qualified but also knows the various drug effects on different people to correctly taper the dosage. My concern is that you have not been into counseling along with the medication. Without that kind of support, it is near impossible to come off of the medication. Therapy will help with the knowledge, skills and the development of some coping mechanisms to enable recovery. For weight loss, there are some very good supplementary products that will help, but you need to exercise too. Depression is the only condition that you need to fight against all the tendencies that are peculiar to this disorder. Never give in to the fatigue, wake up early and exercise, especially the aerobic type, stay upright all through the day, meet people, do active things, socialize, and follow a healthy diet full of fiber.
