Alcohol dependence involves intense craving or desire to drink alcohol. People drink for pleasure or rationalize it on external factors like family problems, work tension, etc. They drink continuously, i.e. Almost daily or even weekly once or twice with withdrawal symptoms, tolerance, bodily damage, etc. They need to be brought for de addiction which involves You need to consult a psychiatrist and go for 3 steps of de addiction. 1st is detoxification, when alcohol is stopped and the withdrawal is made smooth with minimal discomfort, 2 nd is maintenance and further deaddiction when the physical problems and psychological state of the individual is maintained and anti-craving drugs started 3 rd rehabilitation, when relapse prevention is the goal, while maintaining deaddiction.

I have a problem of forgetting about the thing after every 5 minutes and I could not remember the facts normally. What should I do?

Dear , at this age you cannot have memory issues like amnesia. You are possibly having problem with concentration, memory and recollection. The best method to improve your concentration, memory power and recollection etc is to use your brain creatively again and again. Doing number puzzles, creative hobies like painting, games like chess etc can sharpen your brain and improve concentration. Exercise plays an important part in sharpening the brain and in many aspects of memory. Nutritious food including green vegetables, fruits, nuts, cereals and pulses are beneficial. Alcohol, nicotine, drugs, coffee, red meat etc are not that good for sharpening brain and memory power. Being happy and cheerful also contributes positively. You may ask a private question to me for more information. Take care.

Dear, at your age, memory problems like amnesia are not common. Many young people are having problems with memory. These problems are 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. If you want more of my help in this regard, please contact me. Take care.

Each relationship has its own place and importance. They are not comparable rather they supplement and complement each other. You are playing dual role of daughter and wife. Try to maintain respect for everyone including yourself and your decisions. Don't force your husband on your parents. Gradually when they see that you loved and meant to marry him, they might turn around. Remember that you do have the right to marry of your own choice. What you need to be sure of is your reasons for marrying this boy.

Thyroid does not directly affect erection but thyroid levels should be maintained to normal to avoid indirect effects. Your problem is psychological related with your personality. Depression and lack of confidence affect the erection directly. Medications can help in overcoming this problem. Along with them have confidence in yourself. You are perfectly normal. Believe in yourself. Their is solution to evry problem.

There are only 24 hours in a day and it' s recommended that you divide each day so that you are able to work, relax, sleep, exercise, socialise etc. If you are not doing this on a regular basis, then stress creeps into life. You need to design your life along these principals and decide what is best for you. These days, this balance is lost and is the basic reason for stress in life. Counselling helps you to bring in balance into your life by helping you to decide what is your expectations and dreams about life and if you are in line with this.

Sometimes I loose control of myself and get very aggressive. I feel insanely angry and at the same time I've this urge to just shut all the thoughts and not let the situation go out of hands. In this time I tend to do stuff that I regret later or at times instantly. I end up hurting the people I care about the most. Also sometimes it happens and I don't remember any of it. It even the reason for which it happened . Tired of feeling guilty and hopeless in a way for not being able to help it.

MBBS, MD Psychiatry, DNB Psychiatry

The fact that you remember being unnecessarily aggressive or angry at someone against your will suggests that you have an issue of impulse control. Your submission that you feel guilty of your actions just reiterates the same thing. Most of the times it is untreated and long standing stress and anxiety which leads to such problems but it would be more appropriate if you conuslt a psychiatrist in your vicinity for a complete evaluation and management. You may consult me for any further queries or online assistance for the same.

Tension, forgetfulness and decreased concentration can be a symptom of depression or anxiety. Consult a psychiatrist for effective treatment. Eat well, sleep on time, maintain a regular day structure, meditation, breathing exercises, focus on the task, rehearse all these will improve your memory and concentration and reduce stress.

Hello doctor, am under too stress. I want to clear my problem as soon as possible. I could not take any decisions because of this issues. Am married. But my family side no support. My husband was took care of me well. Now am 4 months pregnant. When I got confirmation about my pregnancy my husband feel happy. But at the same time he forced me to get my parents support. But they ignored me. Then after, he was silent. He was good to me. 20 days back his college friend started to msging to him. Day and night full chat. I told him to maintain timings. She too married and have 2 kids. But her personal family life is not good. She was his ex lover. But due to family reasons he rejected her. In earlier I did not take serious. But is sensed something going bad. I just checked his msges. They both wanted together. She literally made him to drag towards her. Because she needs love. He got mind distraction. His past memories made him to chat and he too started to move towards her. I keep on discussed with him smooth manner. Because am pregnant I should not be in much depress. And also I do not have support. So I was keep moving smooth with him. Yesterday, night she msged to him. I got too wild and I msged her to stop her msg. She immediately called him and ask about my place. Previously, he stayed in paying guest till arrange a house. So I think he maintain that he is living in paying guest. Because he do not want to loose her. And loose me also. After my msg he behaved very violent to me. He kicked me backside. Now am having slight pain in my stomach. He beated me very badly today morning. He forgot that am pregnant. He feels that his lies came out. But he covered up something to her. Now I do not know what he is going to take decision. And I do not know what am going to take decision. But my intension is not scolding her. I thought of control her msges. Because she came in between, he slipped suddenly. Human mentality will change anytime. But their conversation is like husband and wife. She is living australia. She having nice money. So she booked tickets to india to meet my husband. So what to predict regard this meeting? I can not even imagine if anything happen physical. But when ever I ask regard her msg. He told something to me. But he msged some other thing to her close. So please doctor advise me. What to do regard this.

There is hardly that can be done on a doctors part to resolve your personal issues with your husband. From a doctors perspective I would suggest you to maintain your calm. Being stressed all the time and reacting to his alleged actions is not going to sort things out. You both need to talk ina constructive way, preferably in front of a counsellor, who can be a family friend or so. Pregnancy is definitely a stressful state of mind and body and women tend to have issues of anxiety and depression even without any interpersonal stressors in their lives. If you feel you are unable to handle the stress and anxiety consult a psychiatrist in your vicinity.

Antidepressants at the earliest should be given. Nowadays many new latest drugs are available which can treat his depression that too with minimal/simple side effects. Counselling after few weeks of antidepressants also will help. He should try to be social, follow his hobbies, do some sporting activities etc. By doing these he can overcome depression.

You report of having dreams almost 3-4 times every night. Also you admit remembering them vividly in your short span of sleep. This itself suggests your lack of restful and relaxing sleep. A tense and anxious mind with a burden of sleep lag would eventually land up having more of rem sleep, causing dreams to be remembered. I would advise you you have 7-8 hours of restful sleep daily. For relaxation you may try deep breathing exercises, yoga or meditation too.

When under a lot of tension and stress I usually collapse for some seconds what should I do?

When under a lot of tension and stress I usually collapse for some seconds what should I do?
Hi, Try deep breathing exercise. Set aside relaxation time. Include rest and relaxation in your daily schedule. Don’t allow other obligations to encroach. This is your time to take a break from all responsibilities and recharge your batteries. Do something you enjoy every day. Make time for leisure activities that bring you joy, whether it be stargazing, playing the piano, or working on your bike. Keep your sense of humor. This includes the ability to laugh at yourself. The act of laughing helps your body fight stress in a number of ways. All the best :) Let me know if you have any questions.
