I love a girl very much. and going to propose her. I love her that much as I can only see her as my wife. But sometimes i'm not able to trust her. I think she is lying. So that should I do to increase my faith in her. I do not want to loose her.

You have not mentioned whether she loves you too. That will make a huge difference to this issue you are facing. If she loves you too, you must learn to trust her until she proves she is trustworthy. You have not mentioned on what basis you have a lack of faith in her. If hse has proven that she cannot be trusted it would indeed be foolish to trust such a person however much you love her. Anyway, when you are in a relationship you must trust the person and if you cannot then give up the girl and find someone you can trust. Trust is integral to any relationship. Whenever you feel she is lying and you have proof, then confront her and see how she responds. It is better to deal with the lying now than later. Another thing, do not think of marriage at this juncture. it is too early and there will be many other girls who will cause your heart to flutter. That is exactly why we have an engagement: to find out whether you can make it with this girl by discovering her traits and to see if they match yours. When you have an agenda like marriage up front, you will rui9n the relationship by wanting to own the person and controlling and such things that will destroy the courtship. You may be insecure yourself and I am wondering whether you are suitable for her or not. You just have to trust her and when she really proves that she lies too much, then you can take a call even if she is your dream girl. All of us lie even you. So I do not know what moral compass you think you are following but check that out first and see if she and you are within the bounds of normal lying.

A systolic reading of 135 is not considered to be high and check your eye sight for refractive error and get your blood checked for cbc.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. Chewing tobacco is also as dangerous as cigarette smoking. In the long run, chewing tobacco habit can cause, mouth, throat or stomach cancer, ulcers, mental disorders and addiction disorders etc. I suggest you to quit the habit using your mind power. I will help you with motivation therapy. Take care.

There are no lumps or red spots in these areas. I also develops some spots which take time to heal. I had a laryngoscopy two months ago which showed no symptoms of oral or throat cancer. Should I be worried?

So little change in diet can give very good result Drinks, alcohol, cola, tea and coffee also enhance craving for cigarettes. So drink more water and juice. Also you can switch from wine to a vodka and tomato juice), These affects their need to reach for a cigarette. 3. Physical exercise : Even a five-minute walk or stretch) cuts cravings and help brain to produce anti-craving chemicals. 4. Make a non smoking friends: this is one of the most important step 5.

Want to know about bipolar disorder and its side effects and complete consultancy.Please tell.

Want to know about bipolar disorder and its side effects and complete consultancy.Please tell.
It can be a crippling disease if not treated and if treated early the prognosis is good. So quickly visit a psychiatrist and seek his/her opinion and you must then follow the medication prescribed. Comply with all the medical prescriptions and work in tandem with a counselor for a long time and learn coping skills and techniques to handle the daily challenges you will face. There are certain adaptations that will suit you during the elation phase and there are certain behaviors that are required during the depressed phases. In the meantime you can do certain things that will give you benefits anyway. Emotional therapy will alleviate a lot of the problems faced in this condition because it is a mood disorder. You need to particularly look at your levels of anger both for its reasonableness and to express it in appropriate manner. I suspect that much of this anger may have origins in early childhood that you may never be aware of now. Talk to your parents and explore that angle. This information will help the counselor too. Also you will need to check whether there is any genetic factor involved. You must exercise regularly, eat healthily and sleep normally too. If your motivation and cooperation is good much can be achieved. You must have a time-structured schedule filled with interesting and reasonable activities and it must be monitored for compliance and delivery. The reason I say this is that many times you will be inclined to have grandiose notions and confidently believe that you can do without the medication. This will set you back many months in the treatment and delay and sabotage the recovery: forewarned you are forearmed. If this combination of medication with therapy is maintained for at least three years without any episodes or breakdowns, it is possible to taper the medication in consonance with the doctor. Bipolar is characterized by two extreme poles i.e. Feeling very high (mania) and suddenly feeling very low (depression). You can ask the doctor for the symptoms he noticed in you for a personal understanding. Regarding some of the symptoms here goes: Mania is a term that describes the emotional highs of bipolar disorder. In general, symptoms of a manic episode may include: •High energy, excessive activity, and/or restlessness •Overly good mood •Irritability •Fast, erratic talking •Racing thoughts •Inability to concentrate •Little need for sleep •Feelings of power •Poor judgment •Reckless spending •High sex drive •Alcohol or drug abuse •Aggression •Refusal to admit that there is a problem Bipolar Symptoms: Depression In bipolar disorder, manic episodes alternate with periods of emotional lows, which are known as depressive episodes. Signs of a depressive episode may include: •Sadness, anxiety, or a feeling of emptiness •Hopelessness •Feelings of guilt, feeling worthless, or feeling helpless •Lack of interest in activities that were once enjoyable, such as sex •Low energy •Trouble with concentration or memory •Restlessness or irritability •Excessive sleeping or insomnia •Changes in appetite or weight •Pain or other physical symptoms not explained by an illness or injury Thoughts of death, or suicidal thoughts or attempts to kill the self.
