My son is 33 years old, married for three years, achiever, working in a MNC, everything is hunky dory but in d last one year he is very obsessed with abs, pumping up and body building and has been taking zomacton (somatotropin) hormones for the last one year. He is very withdrawn, has mood swings. My daughter in law says he is absolutely disinterested in physical activity. Has no vices whatsoever. Well behaved, is not very social and is an introvert .He is feeling life is meaningless and has suicidal feelings at times (he has contemplated suicide when he was alone) he is not gregarious by nature. His routine is office, gym,eat n sleep and on weekends sleep a lot. His life has all d pluses, loving wife, v Good education, loving sibling and parents. V good job U name it n he has it all but of late he asks about d purpose of life and wants to write a book on it. Doesn't party, v occasional drinker, no subs abuse ever, no smoking or womanizing. While talking to his wife also, at times goes into a shell and wants to b left alone. What could b wrong? His wife is v chirpy and not at all demanding.

Dear Lybrate User, I think it will be helpful if your son and daughter in law seek help from a Couple Counsellor. It appears to me that either your son has had some difficult/traumatic childhood experiences or he might be having some doubts about his sexuality and sexual desire. The Counsellor will help them. If your son refuses to go to the Counsellor please ask your daughter in law to take the appointment and start the process. Many times young couples may not be able to share their sexual concerns with the elders in the house. The Counsellor will be of great help. Seek Counsellor's help at the earliest. All the best.

My father took decision to quit smoke. He had been smoking for thirty years . Presently he has not smoked for 6 days and he is feeling very anxious and irritated all the time. Please also recommend how to detoxify the lungs too.

My father took decision to quit smoke. He had been smoking for thirty years . Presently he has not smoked for 6 days ...
This is a very treasured moment in his life itself. You must encourage him and be with him engaging him as much as possible. He will feel anxiety and irritation for some time but do encourage him to talk about his feelings. The tobacco tar in cigarette smoke lines the lungs with huge patches that make that portion dysfunctional. His oxygen carrying capacity is jeopardized, and breathing will be impinged. But don’t be discouraged because it is not too late even now to reverse all the ill-effects of smoking. I don’t know what other organs could be damaged but take him for a thorough medical check-up to assess the effects of his abuse. Regarding improving his lungs, he needs to do a lot of aerobic exercise breathing through his nostrils only. Then there are a lot of deep breathing exercises in Yoga which he can learn too. Deep breathing cleanses his system and lungs and restores it to good health. Deep breathing uses the 80% of the lungs which are not normally used in normal breathing and even when exerting himself. The greatest effect is in the lungs because this substance is processed through the respiratory system directly through the lung surface. He should start vigorous exercises, gradually increasing it over a period of time. Do deep breathing exercises every time he feels like smoking (try Yoga), and replace the oral urge with some healthy food substitute to satiate the need. He may also take hard candy or chewing gum. If the urge is too strong, then use nicotine gums and nicotine patches, for a little while until the smoking drive reduces, substantially. He may also join Smokers Anonymous in his city where the support is really extraordinary for like-minded people who are also in the same situation. Keep himself occupied or engaged with interesting activities during the times when it is most tempting. Keep the company of non-smokers for some time i.e. at least for the first 21 days. Above all let him announce it to everyone that he has quit smoking. Here’s a piece of very good advice: even if he accidentally/willfully takes a cigarette, it is not the end of the world – he can start the cessation all over again. He must persevere with the best support until he defeats this addiction. Counseling is very useful in the initial stages and when temptations are at their highest. HIsd resolution is important and keeping him motivated is the task for the rest of the family. You must capture this opportunity and make it his best effort.

Being happy is always ones own choice. You should learn to live happily and peacefully. You can be happy or sad watching a butterfly sitting on a flower. That is your choice. But wise men prefer to be happy on every occasion. You may post a private question to me with every detail and I shall provide all the required steps to be taken to manage your problem (for a fee).

I want to quit smoking what shud I do some time I just stop smoking then later again I start smoking I want to stop completely.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Best age to stop smoking is before 40 ,In fact do not start all Only by using strong will power and avoiding all situations where you feel like smoking, chewing tobacco or drinking or using drugs/ weed, 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 cry a lot. Whenever i get angry, i cry. I can't control that. Is that a depression?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Do you cry when you are sad also? If you didn?t I would be surprised. Anyway what you are doing is called ?feeling substitution. For some reason you have had no permission to be or express anger; or you have had a bad experience when you expressed anger and it had backfired on you; or you may have a wrong concept that anger is bad; or you may think that anger leads to bad consequences. All or any of these reasons could have made you substitute anger with grief. That way you do not have to deal with the feeling and you could invite the sympathy of people around you. Anger is a pure energy feeling. People therefore mistakenly think that they need to act violent, aggressive or do some damage as an act of its expression. This fallacy has lead to so many unnecessary and very harmful outcomes, unfortunately. In fact anger is a good feeling that must be expressed but can be done calmly, gently and comfortably. Yes, people do not like to see someone angry because of them but that does not mean you need to avoid the feeling altogether. I suggest you talk to someone about this and explore feeling the anger and expressing it to see, if your fears are justified. You will be surprised. Many times that I have expressed anger legitimately and appropriately, I have invited so much of respect instead. You are certainly not depressed, if other factors remain normal.

There are so many medicines in the market. Allopathic, ayurvedic and e. T. C. But it is behavioural problem. When your mind is strong. You can control your thoughts. The mind status should be stable with the help of psychologist. Mind control it is permanent therapy. Medicine works for some time after that then the same status there is no usage. You are unable use continuously medicine. Then you feel some time alcohol is better than medicine. Short time medicine capability. Where as behaviour therapy is permanent method there is no side effects. It is total life style modification method. It is better to consult a very good psychologist in your area. Ok best of luck.

Do anti depressants lead to suicide or suicidal tendencies if taken for longer period of time. Do they become ineffective if taken for longer duration?

The term 'longer duration' is vague one. Lets get it this way...there are guidelines about how long antidepressants should be continued in any given case. Discontinuation of treatment before that period carries high risk of relapse.On the otherhand, decrease in effectiveness over time is not established. Emergence of suicidal ideas after initiating treatment with antidepressants is not established. But yes, some studies have observed that initial improvement in motor activity and energy before improvement in depressive ideas might increase chances of acting upon these wishes.

Hi, Take homoeopathic medicine for increasing memory - Anacardium 200/ once daily. Management: -Meditate for at least 15 to 30 minutes each day physically changes your brain, making you less anxious, and more rational and empathetic. -Besides increasing your physical strength and flexibility, yoga changes your brain. Research suggests that in addition to reducing stress, anxiety, and depression, yoga protects the brain from shrinking with age. -Exercise daily as it would can help offset the cognitive decline brought on by aging and increasingly sedentary lifestyles. -Get enough sleep. On average, adults need between 7.5 and 9 hours of sleep each night. When you aren’t getting enough sleep, it affects your brain’s ability to do this, and your memory suffers. -Spend time with people whose company you enjoy, and who make you feel like the best version of you. -laughter can improve short-term memory in older adults. -Cutting down on your use of technology (i. E. Sitting in front of your computer, phone, or tablet) for even 30 minutes can improve your brain health and help you think more deeply.

I think you get into a panic mode during the exams and develop the jitters. It is best for you to do deep breathing for a few minutes and you will calm down immediately. There is a good exercise that helps to lower panic immediately: block your closed lips with your index finger and blow tight against your cheeks and hold that breath for some time and then release it. Your heart beat will slow down instantly and you will have a calmer demeanor to approach your exam paper. A lot of the reason may be true because of stress perhaps. But you may work on the following to better improve yourself: Daily exercise of at least half an hour is a must. Even if you go to a gym, ask for aerobic and/or callisthenic exercises with whatever else you are doing. A healthy body harbors a healthy mind. With regard to memory, it is very important that your brain and body is ideally rested to be able to recall whatever is required, rather comfortably. Puzzles pose problems to the brain that help it to use new pathways and neurons, which give the brain considerable exercise. It taxes the left brain to use logic to solve the myriad possibilities which other activities do not stimulate. Crosswords are excellent for vocabulary learning and use. Jigsaws and Rubik cube stimulate different permutations to finally settle on the most likely one. Picture completion and anagrams help approach problem solving from several angles. Do Sudoku, and memory co-relation activities and skills. Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber (whole grains, fruits and vegetables), nuts, avocado, eat dark chocolate, consume less of fat and use olive or coconut oil instead, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. You need to check out if you are stronger visual or auditory. The visual is a better mode than the auditory. However, if you combine the two modes, you will get the best concentration. Have a special place of learning, which should be well lit, with soft painted walls, well-ventilated, with no distractions. When you get bored, study by writing. If you repeat learning at least five to seven times, you will apparently remember for a longer time. Sit comfortably but do not slouch. The reading material should be of a fairly large print. Study at small intervals of about 40 minutes and then take a break or change the subject. Short-term memory is a faculty of the left brain, and long-term memory is a feature of the right brain. When people are stressed, they tend to favor the right brain and abandon the left brain, where short-term memory resides. So, it is really very simple: deal with the stress and activate left brain functions. Here are a few suggestions to activate left brain function: shut your left nostril and breathe, move your eyes from right to left and vice versa for at least half a minute at a time, and do callisthenic exercises with some form of counting, regularly. There are some memory enhancing techniques and study methods that your teacher will be able to guide you with. If your home life is full of distractions and stress, it is likely to affect your memory, adversely. In that case, I suggest that you and the family go for counseling too.

Dear lybrate-user, welcome to lybrate. 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. Take care.

Dear, from the given description, I see some anxiety disorder. But there is nothing to worry. You must be able to distinguish between mental disease and mental disorder. Your problem is a mental disorder. Not a mental disease. Therefore no medicines are required. Mental disorder can be successfully treated with the help of awareness, meditation, psychotherapy techniques, life style changes etc. I think two or three counseling sessions and psycho therapy techniques should solve your problem. Let me know if you are willing to undergo counseling sessions and tailor made psycho therapy through mobile. Take care.

I couldn't control my mind in the nights when I am going to sleep. It starts thinking many useless thoughts. Because ...
When you are going to sleep try Mindful breathing: The primary goal of mindful breathing is simply a calm, nonjudging awareness, allowing thoughts and feelings to come and go without getting caught up in them.  Sit comfortably, with your eyes closed and your spine reasonably straight. Bring your attention to your breathing. Imagine that you have a balloon in your tummy. Every time you breathe in, the balloon inflates. Each time you breathe out, the balloon deflates. Notice the sensations in your abdomen as the balloon inflates and deflates. Your abdomen rising with the in-breath, and falling with the out-breath. Thoughts will come into your mind, and that’s okay, because that’s just what the human mind does. Simply notice those thoughts, then bring your attention back to your breathing.  Likewise, you can notice sounds, physical feelings, and emotions, and again, just bring your attention back to your breathing. You don’t have to follow those thoughts or feelings, don’t judge yourself for having them, or analyse them in any way. It’s okay for the thoughts to be there. Just notice those thoughts, and let them drift on by, bringing your attention back to your breathing. Whenever you notice that your attention has drifted off and is becoming caught up in thoughts or feelings, simply note that the attention has drifted, and then gently bring the attention back to your breathing. It's okay and natural for thoughts to enter into your awareness, and for your attention to follow them. No matter how many times this happens, just keep bringing your attention back to your breathing.
