I don't want to live feel unwanted in family friends. No one bothers to even talk to me and friends try to take advantage. At times feel I should do something drastically wrong and finish offyself. Have a few friends but no one wants me to be introduced in there family and want them to know about me. All want a secret relationship which at time hurts a lot. Why people are so rude and nasty to me. As a family I don't have anyone and I think friends are my family but me always proved wrong. Why.

HI lybrate-user! Where you in love with your boyfriend. Did you both cross the limits or planned to get married. Did you try to contact him, if go what was his answer. Just be bold enough to ask him why he cheated You, first try to know the reason. Do not get depressed easily. He is not worthy enough for you. At least feel happy that it happened before your marriage or before having kids. Look he has cheated you. There may be number of reasons for his marriage may be parents force or status, caste or someone attractive, actually speaking true love was not in his heart to marry you. What is the use of thinking such a silly person in life who showed only his positive character in life and not the bad character. He had the worst character which you found out now only. Okay no use of killing yourself or feeling sad instead covert your negative reactions into more positive one by getting married to more handsome and respectable person to the society, try to build in your personality, try to look smarter and attractive, try to come to higher level career wise, this is punishment you give to him. Do not punish yourself by killing you. Take care. Do not worry. If you feel free to contact me either through text chat or call me when you find difficulty to manage then consult me With regards, P

Psychologist,
Dear, tobacco is addictive. Cigarette also contains 4000+ carcinogenic chemicals other than nicotine. The best method is to leave it and continue with your will power. There are other methods like nicotine replacement therapy and pharmacotherapy combined. But still you will need will power. You may consult a physician or deaddiction therapist or a rehabilitation facility for further advise. Take care.

I can't forget my ex girlfriend at any cost. I always contemplate on her. Her memories gush through my mind. I have become ecstatic and almost mad without her. Pls help me.

Psychologist, Delhi
Hi Lybrate user, through your concern I can feel your unconditional love for that girl. But its the time now that you should move on ,just ask from your sole that the girl who is not caring about you now whether she will be right person for you. May be presently your feeling is dominating so can't feel anythingbut after few days you will realise it. You love someone its really wonder feeling you should proud of yourself that you are loving someone but at the same time you must understand that for any relation whether between married or unmarried couple when both agrees then only that relation can continue ,when by anyway any one forcibly tries to continue as other partner is not intrested then it will become burden. You cannot force any one to love or for care ,if anyhow in any type of pressure someone comes then it will be for short time only ,it can be for long time only if someone comes by realising your love and importance. Lets come to your problem that you are still missing that her and it is affecting you very badly you will be normal in few days as time is the best healer. In the meantime you can follow my few suggestions don't be in contact with that girl or any common friend ,involve yourself in some activity, you can join any hobby class, be social as much as you can ,main concept is make your routine such that you don't get time to think on this topic as it will only make your life hell and you will gain nothing, if there will be any chance then it can be only by giving some space in your relation. Take care.

Stress - Homeopathic Remedies For It!

Stress - Homeopathic Remedies For It!

Stress affects every aspect of our lives. It does not allow you to think or focus on anything else, tempts you to binge eat and takes control of your lifestyle. Stress can also cause severe health problems that can result in heart disease. Thus it is very necessary to learn how to control and manage stress. Managing your stress effectively can help you cope with it better and let your remain in control of your life.

Homeopathy is based on the belief that the mind and body are connected. Thus by treating one, the other can benefit as well. Thus when prescribing a form of treatment for any health condition, attention is always paid to the mental state of the patient. Homeopathy can be very effective in treating and controlling stress and stress related problems. When treating stress with homeopathy, it is essential to first understand the cause of stress.

Some common homeopathic remedies for stress are:

  1. Arsenic album: This is usually prescribed to people who are generally anxious and nervous. People affected by the stress of being late for an event or meeting can also be given this remedy to ease the stress. Patients who benefit from this form of treatment are also often hypochondriacs who constantly feel that every minor symptom is a sign of a major illness.
  2. Bryonia: This is very effective remedy for all kinds of stress. It can also be used to treat stress triggered by uncertainty at the workplace and insecurity about not having enough money even though they work very hard.
  3. Calcarea carbonica: This is also a common homeopathic remedy for work place related stress. People who are concerned about being observed or stressed by an upcoming deadline can be benefited by this medication. This type of stress can commonly be seen at the time of appraisals.
  4. Staphysagria: People who are extremely sensitive and feel that the world is unjust and unfair to them cab be benefited by Staphysagria. This is often faced by children bullied in school and people in corporate work environments. Staphysagria boosts confidence levels and thus makes the person feel less vulnerable.
  5. Ignatia: Emotional stress is very well treated by Ignatia. This homeopathic remedy addresses feelings of disappointment and guilt and stress that follows an emotional loss such as the loss of a loved one or breaking up for a relationship. It also fights the desire to withdraw from family and friends and moodiness.

I think I have a clear idea of what is bothering you, and I hope I am right to the ‘T’. I don’t think you have completely worked on the problem of addiction. In fact the reason you are not working out with your wife has to do with a lot of unresolved issues pertaining to the addiction. You see mere abstinence from alcohol is not enough: there are so many matters to be considered before you can seriously say and claim that you are no longer an addict. Now I am aware that according to AA principles, ‘Once you are an addict, you are always an addict’. I come from a different school of thought about that but let me not elaborate about that here. There are four important areas you need to definitely resolve the addiction problem: the Oral issue, the Genetic issue, the Rigid Value System, and the Script issue. Apart from that there is an addict personality that has to be made whole and many unhealthy adaptations have to be resolved. You and your wife, for example, married when you had that personality and she has now become fed up and wants out. If you have not changed that personality, you are literally asking her to live with you with the only change being that you have abstained from the alcohol! Although that is in itself a huge change, your basic personality has not changed. Apart from that it seems like there are emotional matters that are bothering you still and these could become impediments to yourself, let alone another person, like your wife! I suggest that you go back to addiction therapy and discuss these matters for a start and take it forward from there. I believe that if this is done well, you can regain your life all over again.

My wife is 27, she is very aggressive in nature and negative thinker. When she is angry she starts blaming me for she not being happy. She starts the work and leaves half way and she get bored of things very fast. If she is tense she just doesn't do anything except for sleeping. When she is angry she gets violent. She doesn't even come to doctor. What should I do.

Psychologist,
Looks like you both are going through a difficult time in your marriage. Since you have only written about what she does but not about your behaviour, I sense that you either withdraw and remain quiet or both of you argue and it leads to fights between the 2 of you. In either case you will benefit with couple counselling so that you are able to talk to each other openly and transparently so that the actual problems can be spoken about openly. Communications styles differ in all people which leads to many misunderstandings and differences. A succesful marriage requires both parties to understand each other and participate in a manner to support the relationship, as well as personal goals and interests. A visit to the doctor will not be wrong either. Maybe both of you can go as a couple instead of making her as the" identified patient" (she seems to be feeling blamed and cornered hence refusing to cooperate). You could suggest to her that you want to see a doctor" for both of us" so that we can work out the differences between us. Say what you mean and do it genuinely.

Negative thinking is more to do with your state of mind. 1. Develop self-esteem and make friends with positive thinking people. 2. Every person is unique and nobody is perfect 3. Focus on your positive qualities and feel proud of your achievements 4 Don't keep doubting yourself. 5. Keep busy with your work and studies; maintain your schedule *Don’t keep grudge, anger and envy against any body. 6. Avoid fast food and eat healthy nutritious food. 7. Regular vigorous physical exercise is very important. With improved blood circulation, toxins will be eliminated from your body. You will become very energetic and your mind will become fresh as well as positive. 8. Exercise has a positive effect. It makes you feel better. It fights the stress by creating natural and constructive outlet for releasing negative thoughts and emotions such as anger. 9. Exercise boosts the production of feel good hormones or endorphins. 10. Maintain healthy habits and have adequate sleep 11 Keep helping others without any expectation and it gives immense satisfaction 12. If you still want some medicine, take homoeopathic medicine Alfalfa mother tincture 5 to 10 drops in half glass of water twice daily.

Since childhood i'm always lost in my own world with no much friends. I find difficulty in focusing any kind of task. I get lost in my own thoughts in middle of any conversation or any task. I forget things very often. I am too slow in doing any work. I lose interest on things very soon, managing , knowing ,recalling things in detail and finishing assigned task is a burden for me. Whereas others do it easily. I also get involved so much on task dat I forget to eat drink completely unaware of the surrounding n family too totally forgotten. What problem do I have. Is medication helpful in this case. If yes, should I go for homeopathy or allopathic treatment. please help.

The 5 Stages of Loss and Grief

The 5 Stages of Loss and Grief The stages of mourning and grief are universal and are experienced by people from all walks of life. Mourning occurs in response to an individual’s own terminal illness, the loss of a close relationship, or to the death of a valued being, human or animal.
In our bereavement, we spend different lengths of time working through each step and express each stage with different levels of intensity. The five stages do not necessarily occur in any specific order. We often move between stages before achieving a more peaceful acceptance of death. Many of us are not afforded the luxury of time required to achieve this final stage of grief.

The death of your loved one might inspire you to evaluate your own feelings of mortality. Throughout each stage, a common thread of hope emerges: As long as there is life, there is hope. As long as there is hope, there is life.

Many people do not experience the stages in the order listed below, which is okay. The key to understanding the stages is not to feel like you must go through every one of them, in precise order. Instead, it’s more helpful to look at them as guides in the grieving process — it helps you understand and put into context where you are.

All, keep in mind — all people grieve differently. Some people will wear their emotions on their sleeve and be outwardly emotional. Others will experience their grief more internally, and may not cry. You should try and not judge how a person experiences their grief, as each person will experience it differently.

1. Denial and Isolation

The first reaction to learning of terminal illness or death of a cherished loved one is to deny the reality of the situation. It is a normal reaction to rationalize overwhelming emotions. It is a defense mechanism that buffers the immediate shock. We block out the words and hide from the facts. This is a temporary response that carries us through the first wave of pain.


2. Anger

As the masking effects of denial and isolation begin to wear, reality and its pain re-emerge. We are not ready. The intense emotion is deflected from our vulnerable core, redirected and expressed instead as anger. The anger may be aimed at inanimate objects, complete strangers, friends or family. Anger may be directed at our dying or deceased loved one. Rationally, we know the person is not to be blamed. Emotionally, however, we may resent the person for causing us pain or for leaving us. We feel guilty for being angry, and this makes us more angry.

Remember, grieving is a personal process that has no time limit, nor one “right” way to do it.
The doctor who diagnosed the illness and was unable to cure the disease might become a convenient target. Health professionals deal with death and dying every day. That does not make them immune to the suffering of their patients or to those who grieve for them.

Do not hesitate to ask your doctor to give you extra time or to explain just once more the details of your loved one’s illness. Arrange a special appointment or ask that he telephone you at the end of his day. Ask for clear answers to your questions regarding medical diagnosis and treatment. Understand the options available to you. Take your time.

3. Bargaining

The normal reaction to feelings of helplessness and vulnerability is often a need to regain control–

If only we had sought medical attention sooner…
If only we got a second opinion from another doctor…
If only we had tried to be a better person toward them…
Secretly, we may make a deal with God or our higher power in an attempt to postpone the inevitable. This is a weaker line of defense to protect us from the painful reality.


4. Depression

Two types of depression are associated with mourning. The first one is a reaction to practical implications relating to the loss. Sadness and regret predominate this type of depression. We worry about the costs and burial. We worry that, in our grief, we have spent less time with others that depend on us. This phase may be eased by simple clarification and reassurance. We may need a bit of helpful cooperation and a few kind words. The second type of depression is more subtle and, in a sense, perhaps more private. It is our quiet preparation to separate and to bid our loved one farewell. Sometimes all we really need is a hug.


5. Acceptance

Reaching this stage of mourning is a gift not afforded to everyone. Death may be sudden and unexpected or we may never see beyond our anger or denial. It is not necessarily a mark of bravery to resist the inevitable and to deny ourselves the opportunity to make our peace. This phase is marked by withdrawal and calm. This is not a period of happiness and must be distinguished from depression.

Loved ones that are terminally ill or aging appear to go through a final period of withdrawal. This is by no means a suggestion that they are aware of their own impending death or such, only that physical decline may be sufficient to produce a similar response. Their behavior implies that it is natural to reach a stage at which social interaction is limited. The dignity and grace shown by our dying loved ones may well be their last gift to us.

Coping with loss is a ultimately a deeply personal and singular experience — nobody can help you go through it more easily or understand all the emotions that you’re going through. But others can be there for you and help comfort you through this process. The best thing you can do is to allow yourself to feel the grief as it comes over you. Resisting it only will prolon
