    Dissociation identity disorder (did), previously known as multiple personality disorder (mpd) is a mental disorder characterized by at least two distinct and relatively enduring identities or dissociated personality states that alternately show in a person's behavior, accompanied by memory impairment for important information not explained by ordinary forgetfulness.

    Let me explain this in a simple way.

    Example 1- lets say there is Mr. X and Mr. Y. Mr. X is very impressed by the personality of Mr. Y. So he starts liking him. He also tries to sepnd more time with him. He may with time start copying him or seek his help. This problem become so severe that after some time, in a flash Mr. X wakes up and become a copy of Mr. Y. However Mr. X cannot forget that he is actually Mr. X and not Mr. Y. Thus, Mr. X has developed a split personality where he and Mr. Y co exist. This may with time lead to further mental health deterioration such as depression, loss of memory, personality changes, mania, psychosis, antisocial behavior and above all a loss of control and insight in ones life.

    Example 2- Mr. X may not be impressed with Mr. Y. But here it's the reverse. Mr. Y is impressed by Mr. X and wants to be a part of Mr. X s personality. He forces himself on Mr. X until he becomes a part of Mr. X. Therefore Mr. Y has been successful in forcing himself on Mr. X although Mr. X wanted to distance himself form Mr. Y but could not due to various reasons.

    Example 3- this problem does not need to be confined to just 2 people. Any number of people can force themselves on Mr. X depending on his plotters and schemers. Therefore Mr. X loses his mental health and his personality becomes broken into several pieces which have been thrust on him.

    Some people tend to do this voluntarily because of the fact that they like Mr. Y possessions but in most cases people are victimized into this as they are struggling to make ends meet in their lives. The result is agony, despair, loss of self control. An annihilating world and an end full of shame and contempt because of loss of control depending on how erroneous Mr. Y and his associated are.

    Many marriages have been broken because of their spouses developing mpd. Spouses who were happy with each other, suddenly turn hostile and throw them out of their lives because they are now possessed with Mr. Y s who are interested in other spouses than their own. Many children also loose their parents love and care because their parents are no longer interested in them and they desert them or send them to boarding schools.

    This disease is a social evil and a menace to a justful society. But the stress on taking precaution lies with us.

    Developmental trauma

    People diagnosed with did often report that they have experienced severe physical and sexual abuse, especially during early to mid-childhood, and others report an early loss, serious medical illness or other traumatic event. They also report more historical psychological trauma than those diagnosed with any other mental illness. Severe sexual, physical, or psychological trauma in childhood has been proposed as an explanation for its development; awareness, memories and emotions of harmful actions or events caused by the trauma are removed from consciousness, and alternate personalities or sub-personalities form with differing memories, emotions and behavior.

    As of 2011, approximately 250 cases of did in children have been identified,

    Problems with diagnosis

    People with did are diagnosed with five to seven comorbid disorders on average much higher than other mental illnesses. Due to overlapping symptoms, differential diagnosis includes schizophrenia, normal and rapid-cycling bipolar disorder, epilepsy, borderline personality disorder, and asperger syndrome. Delusions or auditory hallucinations can be mistaken for speech by other personalities. Persistence and consistency of identities and behavior, amnesia, measures of dissociation or hypnotizability and reports from family members or other associates indicating a history of such changes can help distinguish did from other conditions. A diagnosis of did takes precedence over any other dissociation disorders.


    Common treatment methods include an eclectic mix of psychotherapy techniques, including cognitive behavioral therapy hypnotherapy and medications can be used for comorbid disorders and/or targeted symptom relief. Some behavior therapists initially use behavioral treatments such as only responding to a single identity, and then use more traditional therapy once a consistent response is established. Brief treatment due to managed care may be difficult, as individuals diagnosed with did may have unusual difficulties in trusting a therapist and take a prolonged period to form a comfortable therapeutic alliance. Regular contact (weekly or biweekly) is more common, and treatment generally lasts years not weeks or months. Sleep hygiene has been suggested as a treatment option,

    Legal issues

    Individuals diagnosed with did may accuse others of abuse but lack objective evidence and base their accusations solely on regular or recovered memories. There are questions regarding the civil and political rights of alters, particularly which alter can legally represent the person, sign a contract or vote. Finally, individuals diagnosed with did who are accused of crimes may deny culpability due to the crime being committed by a different identity state.

    Some people approach medical professionals seeking help for substance addictions. Most of them are deeply engrossed in their addictions and cant bear the thought of coming out of it. Althought it may be hampering their functioning in day to day life in a gross manner. Most of them are looking for quick fix solutions because their system is so dysfunctional by constant abuse.

    Why quick fix solution. Because they want to get rid of the consequnces of their habits in an instant and feel like as if they have never abused any substance which has built up toxicity in their body to such an extent that they have become dysfunctional. so they feel someone elses, blood or other organs can completly absolve them of the past toxin buid up.

    Abusers have to remember one basic thing. You cannot burden the soul of another person for your mistakes no matter who you are. You cannot subcontract your karma to others. Your karma is for you to resolve and deal with. Attacking unconsenting donors to build your karma is a ignorants delusion for paradise.

    Be honest to yourself. Admit you have a problem. Seek help not to sublet your karma but take it in your own hands and build it urself. There is no such things as saints who will clean you of your sins. why look for saints who can do nothing for you when you are the only one for your road to heaven. If you transgress this basic principle you can seek worldly pleasures for some time but the consequences are imminent and disastrous.

    Remember, change always comes from within. Not from healers, or saints or angels or saintly doctors. If you cannot change urself nobody except god can and please stop seeking god in people

    These days I come across a lot of people who are contemplating changing their professions. I have seen a lot of software engineers, doctors and other professionals thinking about going into professions such as farming, agriculture, painting, arts, business etc. Is it possible for these middle-aged professionals to change their careers midway in their life into a field where they have no training or exposure? will it have any impact on their mental and psychological wellbeing in trying to leave behind all their experience and hard work in moving to an area where they have to begin their new careers from the scratch?

    What are the issues that lead to these complications.

    Misjudged choices- many youngsters have a glorified image of many professions but are really not aware of the ground realities once it actually comes to taking up and working in a particular profession. Most of the time the youngsters do not have access to any professionals they wish to take up and hence have no good understanding or idea of how their choice of profession particularly works when it comes to making it a career.

    Lack of good employers- in a world where the yearly revenues and profits are more important than the employee, there is not really much hope when it comes to employees priorities and satisfaction irrespective of his abilities and hard work.

    Dedicated career choices- many people pick up careers because some of their relative influenced them to take up a particular career and loose interest in that career once they loose that relative or something untoward happens to them. This is an unhealthy state of mind and our careers should be influenced by our aptitude and abilities than on any individual.

    Health problems- most careers today are structured in such a way that they yield maximum profit from each employee irrespective of the hazards it poses on their mental and physical wellbeing. In the rush for more money, many employees end up with back pains, hand pains and other body pains apart from mental illnesses such as depression, bipolar disorder, mania etc.

    Inability to match expectations of employers- with hundreds and thousands of employees competing for a single job anywhere, employers have the liberty to set up standards for the job that only one in a thousand or sometimes even in lakhs can match. This was unlike the previous generation of government employees who worked as per their conveniences. This invariably leads to a lot of psychological problems such as jealousy, hatred, unhealthy competition, rivalry and sometimes even criminal endeavours in trying to be the successful one.

    Is it possible to adapt to a new profession? we may think that it is very easy to start a new career because we have problems with the present one. But we should really ask ourselves if we can learn how to learn, practice and become as well versed in the new profession as the old one in which we have spent so much time and effort. Unfortunately due to the frustration many people jump into new endeavours not realizing that it may take decades to even be good enough in the new career.

    Exploitation- we should just remember that if we can be exploited in a profession for which we have spent decades training, how easy it will be for the employer to exploit us in a profession we are beginning now!

    Draining resources- a second or a changed career usually involves a lot of investment involving money, time and effort. It is quite possible that the result of the second career may end with the same results and frustration as the first career and in the process drains up all the earnings, hard work and experience of the first career. While there are many institutes and counsellors advising you to change careers and acquire new degrees, these usually drain up and wash out all the good out of the first career.

    Societal taboos- when the social circle comes to know of a changed career from a software engineer to a farmer, a lot of tongues are going to wag and it is bound to have a psychological impact on the family of the individual changing his profession. This adds to the confusion which would already reach its peak by now. The ridicule and taunting are going to have an adverse impact on the well-being of the second career as well. Questions will be asked as to why you choose the first career or if somebody forced you to choose the first career! nobody who hasn’t worked will understand the stress and problems associated with your career but will rather glorify it as confused and lost the individual.

    Fear of failure- while having convincingly given up the first career, people will not hesitate in branding the individual as a failure and will start betting that the second career will meet the same fate and this will constantly play on the psyche of the individual who will eventually end up with multiple failures and be branded as a good for nothing, while everybody will overlook the employment conditions and troubles.

    Changing careers with partners- nowadays it's seen that men and women want to change careers to suit their changing partners. While there is no harm in changing careers for a valid reason, just changing your career because your partner has changed doesn't make sense as per your own interests. We must understand that a career is built because of our own efforts and our partners may only be in a support role. Just because the person making your breakfast has changed we cannot go on changing our careers. If it was necessary to change careers with partners nobody would be doing a job he was educated for! we should realize that our careers are gods gift so that we grow closer to his mercy and it has nothing to do with who our partners are. If our partners had the power of god to shower mercy and graciousness on our careers as god does then indeed this concept would have been true. A human who has no control over his own life and death cannot control our careers!

    To conclude, psychologically, do not base your career on people around you. You never know the if person you changed your career for may be there after a few years, months or days. If you do want to change your career do it for yourself and for god and not a factor which is transient in itself.

    A new relationship involves a lot of weighing from both the sides. Learn what really matters to win people over in this post. When you want to build a new relationship, whether it is for work, business, personal, marriage, friendship etc there are several factors that help take off and bloom the relationship. These factors are broadly the same in different age groups as far as psychological impact matters. Some of the most important influential factors from a psychological point of view have been highlighted here.

    1. Presentation- When you want to draw someone into relationship with you for any reason, it is important that you present yourself at you best levels be it physical or mental. Like they say that the first impression is the best impression, your display of you strengths creates an impression that helps people decide what they want to do with you. This doesn't mean you should hide all your weaknesses but highlighting your strengths is as important as making your weaknesses clear. Always learn to put your best foot forward as sometimes that itself may not be enough. You can't really send your neighbour for your job interview!! There are many instances when people send different photographs in their applications and different ones appear for the exams. This is mere cheating and not winning.

    2. Plan – Let people know what you want to do with them and what they can they can do with you. No one can say they don’t have a plan. There is always some plan. Knowing it strengthens why you want to have that relationship in the first place. Otherwise it's like something which is there but you can never want to do anything with! When you are honest with your plans and they workout as you described it, it creates confidence in relationship or else it is destroyed forever. You can cheat a person with your plans once, not forever.

    3. Possibilities- Will this relationship bring me trouble? Obviously nobody wants to get into a relationship with anybody that brings them trouble be it physical or mental. Next question is whether it will benefit me? Small or big depends on person's needs. Some relationships neither bring us trouble nor benefits us, such relationships are better than the ones which can cause harm.

    4. Potential – Question. Does this relationship you are trying to develop have any possibilities of growth a few or many years down the line. Obviously we have a lot of friends who wither by passing of time. Does this relationship have an expiry date irrespective of how well or bad it goes? Like when we join college we know for sure that the friends will be with us till the duration of the course and that's it. We will know that if we study together it will help us achieve great grades in college and hence a great life later. These kind of growth possibilities or possibilities of deterioration are important to be well aware of and will naturally decide the course of relationships.

    5. Progress – No matter what our initial assessments are, how the relationships helps us fare in the outside world will ultimately decide the future of any relationship. Loss, sorrow, tragedy, degradation in any aspect of life, insults, injury, loss of health etc will never help any relationship continue or last.

    6. Partnerships – When we want to build a relationship with someone, the best way to do it is to obviously partner with that person in as many activities as possible. The more interested a person is the more activities that person will involve you in and try to do it with you. This type of partnership activities, be it spending a few hours in the evening, or a few minutes on phone, or an association of months or years are a foolproof way to show you are interested. Conversely a person who doesn't partner with you in anything is extremely unlikely to ever have any sort of relationship with you. Partnership in activities is the only way to show and know that you are interested or the other person is interested respectively. After all chasing the moon, stars and rainbow are activities of people who don’t realize its out of their reach. Sensible people are busy with what their eyes see, hands feel, ears listen, tongue tastes and thinking perceives as appropriate.

    7. Positioning attitudes- As a tree bends with the winds to prevent from cracking, we all have to be flexible with our attitudes towards each other. Being too rigid about our protocol on how relationships should run irrespective of the reality and circumstances of the person we are having a relationship with is naturally going to break relationships. After all a doctor who heals and prevents all illnesses is better than a doctor who abuses his patients for falling ill but never does anything for them. Eg: You get bed and good food in a hotel as well as at your home. A hotel will provide food only on payment of money, but family will provide it whenever your hungry. Hence hotels can never expect the same emotions as family can, and this is as natural as it should be. Hence be careful what you want from a relationship. Whether you want to be treated as a hotel or family is entirely how you play yourself with others. After all only families can expect loyalty not hotels.

    8. Politeness- In any relationship, many years down the line, what our long term memory retains is how comfortable we were in that relationship. Even if we profit from a particular relationship, the fact that it shook us mentally and emotionally will never allow us to go back or retain that relationship. Life is short and the only thing that matters is to spend it comfortably. Not destroy our peace for some benefit that destroys our peace of mind.

    9. Personation- While sending a representative of your organization for a client meeting may work in business, you cant really send a representative to meet you wife or kids at home. In personal relationship, lack of your physical presence obviously means that you don’t have time for them. In any relationship, individuality matters a lot. Just imagine, if all actors acted exactly the same in movies, why would you prefer any particular one over the other as your favourite? The nuances and differences in our personalities are what makes us all unique. We are not robots from a particular brand to behave exactly the same way. If a person in a relationship doesn't sense your individuality you are wasting their time by trying to have a relationship with them, especially a personal one.

    10. Positive reinforcement- When we get into a relationship, it is important that we feel good about ourselves and what we are doing. If you feel like a shoplifter entering a shop, you will not feel good about that relationship. When a shopkeeper welcomes us, shows us his products, tells us their details and provides all the explanations on how we will be well off with the product, provides his guarantee for it, confirms its essence, many people buy it even if they don’t compulsively need it. It’s the same in relationships. On the same side if a shopkeeper is arrogant, avoidant, abusive, insulting etc you are very unlikely to buy anything in that shop because you are not sure that the shopkeeper means any good and will be happy with the shopkeeper s product. The experience of buying is as important as the product we buy. Nobody is happy about something they got when they weren't treated the right way or is interested in retaining it when they don’t get good service for it.

    11. Persistence on all Ps – Obviously when we want relationships to last, we need to be persistent on all the above P's. Otherwise it wont take long for a relationship to be counted in “once upon a time”!! A simple conversation even if for a few minutes every now and then when you need it may make it seem that you are still there for a person. Without even that people may even find it hard to remember that they even had something to do with you sometime before keeping in mind the the numerous activities we involve daily to maintain our lifestyles.

    Marriage as a contract provides a psychological strength towards reaping benefits of companionship, intimacy, physical relationship etc. When we try to indulge in relationships outside it there are many issues that play on our mental psychology and mental status and this article is about how it effects our minds.

    Relationships are better in people with similar religious, educational and family backgrounds. It has been found that if this does not happen the chances of a successful and lasting marriage are very low as it is difficult to cope with the enumerous differences in language, food habits, ideology, beliefs and practices etc. While social friendship and work partnerships are a different ball game physical relationships and marriages pose much intricately complicated issues in such differences. While indulging in sex outside marriage people may give into their lust, but these differences will slowly start effecting the sustenance of a lasting commitment.

    Guilt is something that some may carry for a longtime. Especially since we pass through different belief systems. Passing through different environments from conservative to liberal will expose our acts to judgement and criticism when there are fluctuating belief systems in different parts of societies we pass through creating an udesirable opinion about those who do such things.

    Depression on others finding out- there are patients who are married with children and have a relationship outside marriage. Later on, on their family finding out they could go into depression, sometimes so severe that they are unable to cope not just with their work but also with their daily life and could need to go through intense psychiatric treatment to get over it.
    Issues with ethical and religious beliefs- for some I ndulgence and then having to discuss this with social contacts does not seem to provide a comfortable situation for anyone be it a woman or man.

    Stigma of being an indulger distances such people from partners who are seeking stable long term commitment and they end up in a circle of people who indulge in such activities without ever finding a stable and lasting relationship.

    Legal issues- it may create legal problems which only get complicated if there is a pregnancy with people seeking abortions illegally and other medical issues.

    Sexually transmitted diseases- are frequent and common in such groups of people which may be life ending if exposed to hiv, herpes, gonorrhea, syphilis etc creating not just long term medical problems but also social stigma and isolation.

    Trust issues-future partners will have trust issues in committing to people in such relationships.

    Image issues- even celebrities have their out of marriage sex splashed in the media with loss ofcredibility, public criticism and often lead to divorces and other legal problems.

    Seeking out behavior- people who have tendencies to look out of marriage for sex tend to develop a seeking out behavior which becomes an impediment to their personality by forcing themselves to constantly be on the lookout for such oppurtunities. This can become like an habit they cant get rid off enforced from influences within!

    Lack of social support- people often find no support from anywhere when something goes wrong in such relationships. This can lead to alcoholism and other addictions leading to psychiatric visits and deaddiction centers.

    While there is nothing wrong with having sex and it is completely normal to have the desire to have sex, we have to remember that the manner in which we do that has a very significant bearing on our overall wellbeing and life.

    Why Sleep Deprivation Can Be Hazardous

    Exams, work, parties, stress, worries – there numerous reasons because of which we do not sleep well and begin the next day sleep deprived. At times, this extends to multiple times in a week and before we realize, it poses bigger health health hazards than you can imagine.

    10 health hazards sleep deprivation can lead to-

    1) Induces Accidents - If you haven’t slept well the night before, you are bound to be drowsy. It is extremely unsafe to drive when sleepy, as this puts you at a high risk of meeting with an accident. Not just while driving, there are known to be more accidents inside the office, when one is sleep deprived.
    2) Makes You Dumb - When sleep deprived, our senses are not alert. And when our senses are not alert, our brain slackens. Lack of sleep impairs attention, reasoning, concentration, and reasoning. It takes us time to grasp situations and facts, we tend to be dumb.
    3) Poses Serious Health Threats - Sleep disorders are known to cause heart attack, heart disease, heart failure, irregular heartbeat, stroke, diabetes, insomnia and high blood pressure.
    4) Dip in Sex Drive - Sleep deprivation depletes one’s energy and increases tension in the mind. This leads to lack of concentration and a massive dip in one’s sex drive. Both men and women are known to express lowered interest in sex when they are sleep deprived.
    5) Ages Your Skin - We all know that one sleepless night gives us puffy eyes and sallow skin. However, chronic sleep disorder also results in fine lines, dark circles under the eyes and lackluster skin. Human growth hormones are released while we sleep. So the lesser one sleep, the lesser is the hormone released. And thus affects our skin.
    6) Leads To Depression - Depression feeds on insomnia and vice versa. While good sleep at regular intervals is known to calm the senses and helps treat depression, lack of sleep at times aggravates the symptoms of depression.
    7) Makes You Forgetful - When sleep deprived, one tends to be forgotten. Not a surprise since due to lack of sleep, one is not alert as it is. Scientifically explained, one needs to be in deep sleep for the sharp wave ripples to occur and sharpen one’s memory.
    8) Causes Weight Gain - Studies say that the more one sleeps, the more weight they lose. And in instances of sleep deprivation, exactly the opposite happens. Sleeping less than six hours a day increases your risk to be obese, according to studies.
    9) Increases Risk Of Chronic Diseases - Lack of sleep increases the risk of cardiovascular diseases. It is very important to sleep the required amount of hours, every night, to assist all organs to function smoothly.
    10) Impairs judgement - Sleep deprivation affects focus and other senses. This in turn impairs judgment as one might find it difficult to focus while taking decisions. You might start sleeping lesser than 7-8 hours and find that your body has adjusted to it, however in the long run, it will start showing adverse effects on your body.

    What are conversion disorders?

    As I have been getting a lot of questions of pain in hands/legs, headaches, irritation/pain in eyes and other with motor or sensory symptoms without any conventional medical tests showing any abnormality, I have presented below a brief description of conversion disorders.

    A conversion disorder causes patients to suffer from neurological symptoms, such as numbness, blindness, paralysis, or fits without a definable organic cause. It is thought that symptoms arise in response to stressful situations affecting a patient's mental health.


    Some of the most typical symptoms include blindness, partial or total paralysis, inability to speak, deafness, numbness, sores, difficulty swallowing, incontinence, balance problems, seizures, tremors, and difficulty walking

    Impaired vision (hysterical blindness), double vision, impaired hearing (deafness) and loss or disturbance of touch or pain sensation


    Symptoms arise through the power of suggestion, acting on a personality vulnerable to dissociation especially due to enforced replacement. In this hypothetical process, the subject's experience of their leg, for example, is split-off from the rest of their consciousness, resulting in paralysis or numbness in that leg which may re surface later.


    The exclusion of neurological disease, the exclusion of feigning, and the determination of a psychological mechanism which is associated with stressors and conflicts.


    Occupational therapy
    Treatment of comorbid depression or anxiety if present.
    Physical rehabilitation
    Replacement of lost abilities suitably due to transference or loss of abilities

    If you have any further queries please feel free to ask me a private question.

    Fasting in ramadhan/ramzan

    As the month of ramazan begins muslims will indulge in fasting from sunrise to sunset for a month. Here are some health tips that will help during this month.

    Before sunrise-

    1. Please make sure you have sufficient food to help you atleast in the early hours of fast. Make sure you dont eat too oily or spicy food as this may cause heartburn and acidity later in the day.

    2. Make sure you drink lots of water. Atleast 1 liter of water will help you during the day

    3. If you area diabetic you can take your medications before food in the morning. However you should look out for hypoglycemia if you dont have enough food.

    4. Hypoglycemia or low sugar can occur in diabetics. Hence it is advisable to look out for sweating, shivering, giddiness, loss of conciousness. If any of these occur you must take some sugar immediately otherwise low sugar can lead to loss of conciousness, coma and even death.

    5. Diabetics with poor sugar control and people on insulin should be extremely cautious about the risk of low sugar and high sugar. Please ensure you check your blood sugar atleast twice a day or when you develop symptoms of hypoglycemia.

    6. The key to diabetics fasting is that you should eat enough in the morning to help you through the day but in small quantities enough to control your sugar levels.

    7. Taking a short walk is good after morning food.

    After sunset-

    1. Please dont indulge in breaking the fast by taking high calorie food such as soft drinks, fried items and excessive sweets.

    2. Eat in instalments of 1-2hour gaps as sudden consumption of snacks and dinner in a short span will overload your blood with glucose.

    3. A walk after iftar is good for digestion and metabolism.

    4. Eat food atleast 2 hours before going to sleep.

    5. The tendency to overeat is high after fasting. You can avoid this by taking lots of salads and fruits.

    6. If you are a diabetic you must make sure that after breaking your fast you can take your medications 30 minutes before dinner.

    Role of relationship problems in depression and suicides -
    Almost everyday we read about people ending their lives by committing suicides from celebrities to common man to even children . Although this is not permitted in any religion and there is a legal debate on whether it should be legalized, the fact remains that people are driven towards this unfortunate step. Let's take a look at the common reasons for suicides to become so very common.

    1) Lack of intimacy- We see that although we are surrounded by people most of people are having friends only on Facebook. Even among the people we interact everyday nobody wants to open up with anyone or allow you to open up with them.The fact that you are surrounded by people who don't share themselves with you intimately starts pulling your mind downwards. Work colleagues are bothered only about work, family is only bothered about the income you are generating, partners are obsessed with how much you can spend on them, friends are occupied with what benefits you can share with them. Therefore all in all, despite having all relationships, people feel left out and alone like as if their inner self has been left unwanted and uncared of. The monotony of mechanical life hastens the culmination of this abuse into drastic steps like suicide.

    2) High demands- People are often left to fend with high demands from them from their social circle. Many people cannot attempt this and some who attempt are not able to make it. This leaves them with a feeling of failure which is often frowned and looked down upon whether it is a student or a professional. It is no surprise that today even below 10 years olds are successfully attempting suicides.

    3) Inappropriate planning- Planning is a key necessity for successful results whether it is financial or relationships. but unfortunately many people are unable to obtain the correct know how which will enable to implement their plans successfully.

    4) Inability to cope- Many people plan to do things but are unable to cope with the harsh realities that come with the plans. To some it may be unseen to some unbearable. So although they set out on doing something the journey is not what they had expected.

    5) Lack of results- Sometimes although everything is planned well, executed well and completed well it does not fetch us the rewards that may seem appropriate to the level of efforts. This is something that is very difficult to deal for most people and is a result of many unfortunate casualties.

    6) Lack of desire-It is very important to have something to look forward to in life. But unfortunately in an age where drinking water and using the toilet cost s money many people cannot think of having something to look forward to and hence this unfortunate step.

    Therefore, you have to be very prudent in what we are doing today because we can never predict which way our lives may go and even importantly which way you may yourself go based purely on circumstances beyond our control dependent on the choices we make today or others make for us. Although suicide is not a sensible solution to any problem it does remain a common reality. If you are feeling suicidal please remember to seek help.

    What is depression and how to deal with it.

    We all have times is life when we feel sad and low. Is that a disease and does it require treatment? how to differentiate that sad feeling with depression? this is the question that comes to our mind which leads us to seek treatment from a doctor.

    Depression is basically a disorder of mood where there is an reduction of a chemical called serotonin in the brain. Lack of sunlight, stressfull events such as child birth, illness, divorce, work tensions, bereavement, pain, lack of intimate relationships etc can all lead to depression.

    To be classified as depression the following symptoms must be present for at least 2 weeks.
    Loss of interest or pleasure in anything including what you used to enjoy before.
    Sleep disturbances including early wakening, excessive sleeping or inability to sleep.
    Ideas of guilt or worthlessness
    Decrease or increase in appetite
    Inability to concentrate
    Slow and sluggish thought process and movements.

    As you can notice all these symptoms effect our normal daily functioning and hence requires immediate attention. Suicidal risk in particular is an emergency and needs hospitalization.

    The treatment depends on the condition of the patient and there are several options. Nowadays being depressed has become a cool thing and people take antidepressants" happy pills" by themselves. This is not a healthy thing to do. You must consult a doctor and get yourself evaluated before you take any medicines.

    Please feel free to ask me a private question if you need further information.

    When to take insulin in diabetes

    From being diagnosed as a new diabetic to many years later after it the question that haunts diabetics is whether i should take insulin now or in the future. If you are a type diabetic (in young people) you start with insulin right away but if you are diagnosed with late onset diabetes (above 35 years- exceptions apply) you delay it for as long as possible.

    The answer to this is simple. You continue on diet, exercise and tablets as long as you can maintain your sugar levels within normal and when inspite of this your blood sugar levels are uncontrolled (consitently above 200 mg/dl) and you are developing complications such as high blood sugar levels, infections (unresolving) or ketoacidosis etc. Obviously the trouble to take insulin is not more than being confined to an ICU bed and hence you will need to start taking insulin once twice or even thrice a day.

    For any kind of illness the most often question the patient asks if what kind of food is to be taken for the patient. Although this cannot severely affect outcome acutely in any illness over a long time it is very significant.

    First i will talk about junk food or fast food. This is the most popular kind of food because it gives instant gratification. This added with brand value is also nowadays a sense of accomplishment for some people. The food here will give instant pleasure but because of the fact that to do that it is often prepared in a way that it become s of a high calorific value with a lot of taste. But consumption over a period of time makes eaters prone to obesity, diabetes, hypertension etc.

    Second is processed food. They are in a way similar to fast food but in addition to calories they are made and stored with a lot of additives and preservatives. Examples are all canned and packed food. Even though it is ideal food for those on the go due to nuber of chemicals added in it exposes the eater to their
    side effects.

    The best choice is of course home food. Made with natural ingredients without the pressure or motive of having to sell for profit make it made with concern for health both long term and short term. But the problem is availability and this is what exposes most people to the above 2 categories. With option from vegetables, fruits cereals and pulses and breads with no chemicals and presentation motive the motto here being natural for good health and life makes it the wisest choice in our diets. The food here is as is to be such that you be what your meant to be at best for yourself and others rather than living a life for show off or sacrificing good food for other priorities.

    How to maintain normal sugar levels.

    If you are a diabetic one of the major challenges you face is to keep your sugar levels under control all the time. The temptation to indulge in food versus the consequences of a raised blood sugar is a dilemma you face everyday. So what is the way to deal with this situation.

    It is important that you don't starve and have food enough to keep you going through the day whether you are working or not. Thus it is important to understand the food you are eating. Lets say that food can be of 2 types. Even food that will not raise your sugars too much and odd foods that will raise your blood sugar easily and quickly.

    Examples of even food s are vegetables, fruits which are not too sweet and moderate quantities of rice and pulses. Examples of odd foods are sweets, sweet sugary drinks, sugar heavy products, excessive quantities of cereals and pulses etc.

    So the easy way to balance your diet is to use even foods for hunger and odd foods to be avoided as much as possible.

    Of course the effects of exercise and regular medications should not be ignored in managing diabetes.

    Erectile dysfunction is a condition where a man is unable to have a penile erection sufficient enough to penetrate and ejaculate. It is caused due to blocks in blood circulation in the blood vessels of the penis. It is also common also due to psychological factors.

    The role of viagra/sildenafil is to dilate the blood vessels in the penis so that the blood circulation improves and enables a sufficient erection. However since it is a blood vessel dilator it can lead to fall in blood pressure if more than 2 are taken in a day. Also long term abuse can lead to failure of the drug to acheive its function. In cases where there is an actual block in penile blood vessels it is the suitable choice but often we see that people percieve it as a magic pill that will make someone who uses it a super performer in sex which is untrue.

    The biggest aphrodisiac is a not a pill but a partner whom you like and are comfortable with. Spending pleasant time with your partner and having a good relation are very important for good sexual performance. There is nothing more powerful than the perception and emotions for your partner in your mind that can influence your sexual performance. When negative emotions and mental blocks arise in a relationship then sexual performance is bound to suffer. When your mind does not like something about your partner or the act of intercourse itself for some reason it is of no use to abuse viagra as some kind of magical remedy for all problems which it is not.

    This is a question that is asked very often. Both these condition Hypertension and Diabetes are not like cold or fever where we take medications and stop them when it subsides. They are not diseases but rather conditions that develop in the body. By conditions i mean that they can be controlled but never really eliminated. The means of controlling is by medications. There are some exceptions such as obesity high grade and pregnancy where in diabetes and hypertension occur but are lost once significant weight is reduced or after child is delivered. However, otherwise they go out of control if medication is not taken after the condition is under control especially during periods of stress and excessive eating. Even in obesity and pregnancy the drugs are only stopped under medical supervision and monitoring periodically (weekly or biweekly) and it is never advisabale for patients to stop medications on their own.

    Many people think at least for once if they can eliminate all allopathic medicines and try some other form of treatment from another system of medicine to get rid of diabetes and hypertension completely. If this was possible then there would be a documented or known case of such a thing happening but unfortunately there is none. Therefore do not stop or discontinue medications without medical supervision and periodic monitoring of both conditions or else it may have serious consequences.

    Many people are curious to know if they have diabetes. It is natural to worry especially if there are changes in their health.

    Usually diabetes presents with increased thirst, increased urination, tiredness, weight loss, increased appetite. If you have any of these symptoms you should have your blood sugar levels tested. There are 3 tests which need to be done. One is fasting sugars, two is post prandial sugars and three is HBA1c. These 3 tests if on the higher side will indicate diabetes. The third test of HBA1c will indicate the duration of increased blood sugars in the previous months. A consultation post these 3 tests will enable your doctor to guide you on the further mode of treatment.

    The management of diabtes in basicially through drugs, insulin, exercise and diet modifications. If you have further doubts you should consult on further management.

    Please make sure you have no skin allergies particulary to bleaching agents such as chlorine. Any contact dermatitis could worsen on exposure to such waters. Always have a shower before entering the pool and make sure you use pools where this practice is followed. Always have a thorough shower after using the pool. Always use protective glasses to avoid conjunctivitis. Avoid swallowing water from the pool. If you want to spit make sure you do it outside the water or in the water collection system in the corners. If you develop any skin problems stop immediately and seek help.
