I am 21 and I have a boyfriend from college. We are very happy now. But something's from past gets in mind once in a while. My boyfriend has a girl best friend who is not too close to people. Last year my boyfriend went to a college tour. She got too close and cozy to him during it. He dint bother as he is always open to friends. When they returned I heard of them and got really angry with him. I thought she was emotionally close to him. But she also started to be physically close, holding hands while walking, sitting etc. And even talking of it. So after I heard of it and got angry he said it was not anything bad and he just allowed best friends as they should be. Later the month when that girl was more talking to another friend, my boyfriend got sad thinking that their friendship was fading. He got angry to her little .when she asked why, he said he didn't wanted to lose her best friendship and that he was possessive of her love and care she gave him. She convinced him that no one could take his place. He wanted her friendship back and they talked that way being emotional sent and all. When I told him to limit his friendship with her he said he wouldn't leave her friend as he is equally important to him as I am .I an his girl friend and she is his best friend. That hurted me to hear that he was too attached with his best friend . Later I got depressed and once I saw his chats with her during their friendship re union and all, I hated him .and got sad. He also got sad for making me sad. And said he didn't wanted to be selfish. His friends are friends. Nothing more. And he wanted them. Later due to my complaining he reduced his friendship. She also understood. Now we are hapy. But I thought I was mean even though I was hurt. So I told him he could be best friends again. He was happy to hear. I want to forget that memory of those days when they occur sometimes now. I want to forgive her and let her out of mind.

The past looms over us - especially the bad memories. No need to be guilty of being selfish - in all relationships, clear boundaries need to be laid down right from the beginning, so that there are no misunderstandings later on. So, what you did was absolutely right. As for the memories disturbing you, focus on where you want to take your relationship from here - it is always our choice what we want to remember from the past - if you remember the sweet memories they will grow bigger in your mind. To forgive her, all you have to do is relax, take a few deep breaths, close your eyes and while releasing your breath, say to yourself i'm free, I free you. And forgive her. The anger will only come back, if you think about that episode negatively, if you see it like any other incident, then it will not hurt you.

Every thought or feeling that comes in your mind / brain is natural. Homosexual thoughts are very common in both men and women. 100% of people in the world have them. If you are attracted to your wife and have a stable and happy married life, then I would suggest that you treat these thoughts just like a heterosexual attraction. Just like you would brush away feelings of attraction towards another woman, ignore these thoughts and feelings as straying of the mind. Calling a thought unimportant is the best way to help it fade away. The more you pay attention to it, stronger it becomes. However, if the attraction you feel is very strong, you are unhappy in your marriage, you feel uncomfortable in your current sexual role, then it's time to introspect who you really are. What you do about it is another matter all together.

Hello, dandruff causes hair loss so its necessary to treat dandruff first. Take thuja 200, 5 drops in the morning, once in a week. Take arnica q and cochleria arom. Q in equal amount, mix with equal amount of coconut oil, and apply this on your scalp, thrice a day. Wash your hair with b&t anti- dandruff shampoo. Home remedies are as follows:- coconut oil helps eliminate dandruff due to its antifungal properties. It also moisturizes dry scalp and provides relief from itching. Take some coconut oil and mix half the amount of lemon juice in it. 1. Rub it on your scalp and massage for a few minutes. 2. Wash your hair after at least 20 minutes. 3. Follow this remedy two to three times a week. Revert me after 1 month.

BHMS

Healthy and balanced diet is important in reducing risk of memory loss. Green leafy vegetables reduce the risk of decline of memory with age. Good social relationships and interactions can help reduce risk of memory loss. Brain activity should be maintained. This can be regular reading, writing, learning a new skill, or instrument, doing crossword or puzzles etc. stimulates brain cells and lower risk of memory loss. For further queries get back to me.

Dear Lybrate user, Anger and aggression are emotions. Anger comes when you become irritated. Irritation happens when you don't like something, or when something is repeated. As anger is an emotion, it should be vent out. You should be able to throw anger out instead of controlling it. But more perfect will be, know the frustrating situations and stop being emotional. If practiced properly, you will not get irritated at those circumstances at all. Those techniques are much easier to understand. Take care.

Bipolar disorder - Is it a Common Depression Type?

Bipolar disorder - Is it a Common Depression Type?

Depression is a very common emotion you might have experienced at least once during your lifetime. Depression refers to a state of mind when you are feeling low due to persistent sadness and loss of interest. But if the depression is chronic and long lasting for you, then it indicates that you are suffering from clinical depression. Under clinical depression, it is preferable that you go through a proper treatment course by a certified therapist. The Most common types of depressions are:

  1. Major depression - Under this type of a depression you will be depressed for most days of the week and if this condition extends for a period greater than 2 weeks, then it is a case of major depression. The most common method to treat a major depression is to talk to a mental health specialist and take medications called antidepressants (only after a prescription by a certified doctor).
  2. Persistent depressive disorder - This is a more severe and long lasting type of depression which is identified if you are depressed over a period longer than 2 hours. The most common symptoms of this type of a disorder are - change in your appetite, too much or too little sleep, lack of energy or fatigue, low self-esteem, trouble concentrating or making decisions, feeling hopeless among others.
  3. Bipolar disorderIf you are experiencing extreme ups and downs of mood abruptly and without any apparent reason, then you might be suffering from this disorder. This disorder is commonly known as a maniac depression, because during an up phase you will be extremely happy, joyful outgoing and talkative but during the low phase you will be sad, tired and depressed.
  4. Seasonal affective disorder - This type of a depression might bother you only during the winter season. This happens whenever the days are shorter and your body is not able to get enough of sunlight. This mostly happens in the case of people who are very fond of sunlight, and they prefer the sunshine over dark periods of the night. This disorder is treated by SAD antidepressants and everyday light therapy of 15 to 20 minutes.
  5. Psychotic depression - Under this type of a depression, you will have a major depression along with some psychotic symptoms like - hallucinations, delusions, and paranoia. Hallucinations mean viewing things that are not there, in reality, delusions are false beliefs or misconceptions and paranoia is the constant fear that somebody is going to harm you. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Psychologist.

Dear lybrate user. Welcome to lybrate. I can understand. Loosing someone near and dear is called grief and depression related to grief is pretty normal. But this sort of depression does not stay for long. This depression gets cleared within a span of some weeks. The best option for you is to undergo counseling and depression related therapy. Take care.

8 Guidelines for a Happy Relationship

8 Guidelines for a Happy Relationship

No matter which kind of relationship couple are in, they always have some issues and look to be happier, and more connected, though the issues can be different for different couples - money, sex, infidelity, in-laws, children etc. Despite this, any relationship is completely subjective and no clear cut rules can be executed on it. Yet, following certain guidelines may help proceed happily in a relationship.

1.Love yourself - You must love yourself before you love another. By accepting yourself and fully being what you are, your simple presence can make others happy. Accepting yourself fully as you are and showing yourself this same unconditional love will provide protection, healing, and confidence to work on your shortfalls.

2.Adopt a positive lifestyle - There are many different ways in which you can embrace a more positive lifestyle - practice affirmations, express gratitude, meditation, exercise. Just find something that helps you unwind and enjoy life. And most importantly - keep doing these things.

3.Empathize with your partner - The ability to empathize is what inhibits us from just going through life doing whatever we want, without regard for others. It is what makes a compromise in a relationship possible. If you realize that something you've done has hurt another person and you can empathize with his/her pain or unhappiness, you will hesitate to do that again.

4. Take responsibility: Don't try to figure out who's right - When couples come for therapy, one or both tend to think that the primary problem is their partner. Both people co-create the climate of the relationship. And both need to do some things differently to create the marriage or relationship they both really want. If your intention is to create a more positive world for yourself and those around you, it's up to you to have the thoughts, moods, and actions that will create that world.

5. Stay connected - When there is distress in the marriage or relationship, one or both usually feel some emotional disconnection. Frequently, sexual passion diminishes as well. (However, sometimes one partner will try to increase frequency of sex in an effort to feel connected). And often, people will busy themselves with work or kids instead, or do other things to either try to feel connected or to avoid being alone with the person with whom they feel the pain of disconnection.

6. Express thoughts, feelings, and wishes - Resentment can build when couples sweep things under the rug, so be vulnerable and don't bury negative feelings, but try to express them in a respectful way. Opening up to your partner can make you feel vulnerable and exposed, but it is the most important part of an intimate relationship.

7. Try new things together - Boredom can be a major obstacle to lasting romantic or companionate love. Psychological research has suggested that couples who experience the most intense love are the ones who enjoy participating in new or challenging 'self-expanding' activities together.

8. Preserve your independence - Neediness and caretaking in long-term partnerships -- which can easily result from looking to the partnership for safety, security and stability -- damper the erotic spark. But if couples can maintain independence and witness each other participating in individual activities at which they're skilled, they can continue to see their partner in an ever-new light.

Hey, I am 18 years old. I am very shy when surrounded by people. I get really angry at my mother. I always had this hatred towards her. Even when I was a kid. At times I am fine with her but at other times I feel a strong hatred towards her. Recently I was playing with her, well I was angry. Really angry. I was not myself.

You need help immediately before this turns out to become ugly. There is obviously some reason from childhood that has triggered this feeling and needs investigation and resolution. At your age, this may be compounded with hormonal productions, which will tend to spurt in quantity and lead to complications. During this time there will be a spurt in the production of the male sex hormone, testosterone, which has a duration of two years. Due to this chemical alone, there are three identified features that present itself over which you have little or no control: you will be sexually active, aggressive and rebellious, and you will have acne and pimple problems. Then if you has unresolved childhood issues, like I think you have, they will compound the situation and fuel uncontrolled behavior. If you are losing self-control you are likely to have all fo these symptoms and need professional help right away. You can discuss this with your parents and get their help, how much ever you hate doing this.

Yes yoga and exercising are good ways to fight depression, but one may need the help of medicines if not improving. A lasik surgery is safe, but finer details should be consulted with an ophthalmologist. Yes, even cancer patients on chemotherapy should exercise as per tolerability.

Dear lybrate-user. General exercises like jogging and stretching will be good. More useful would be agile games like badminton, football, basketball etc. Studies show that a high-protein, low-sugar, no-additive diet combined with adhd-friendly supplements like fish oil and zinc can drastically improve adhd symptoms in children and adults. Take care.

Started smoking again? Now what !

Started smoking again? Now what !

Having a small setback doesn't mean you're a smoker again. Most people try to quit smoking several times before they kick the habit for good. Identify the triggers or trouble spots you ran into and learn from your mistakes. 


    1. You're not a failure if you slip up. It doesn't mean you can't quit for good.
    2. Don't let a slip become a mudslide. Throw out the rest of the pack. It's important to get back on the non-smoking track now.
    3. Look back at your quit log and feel good about the time you went without smoking.
    4. Find the trigger. Exactly what was it that made you smoke again? decide how you will cope with that issue the next time it comes up.
    5. Learn from your experience. What has been most helpful? what didn't work?
    6. Are you using a medicine to help you quit? call your doctor if you start smoking again. Some medicines cannot be used if you are smoking at the same time.

Hello- you can dilate your vaginal opening by insertion of penis with lubrication/or you can dilate by inserting more fingers in it. Once the passage gets dilated it will automatically widens the space due to hormonal changes and will ease the penitration of penis nxt time. Use proper lubrication during all this.
