Love is such a “mysterious phenomenon” and many people put it all down to their own personal destiny. But in reality, it has nothing to do with fate, it was all related to your subconscious, which was quietly figuring out whether the person matches your checklist or not. The truth of the matter is that if you’re able to grow more aware of your subconscious mind’s specific criteria, you’ll be able to quickly determine why you fall for some people and not for others. Of course each person’s checklist is different and unique. The items on your list depend on your: •Values •Beliefs •Past experiences •Background •Previous relationships Seek help from a counselor for better guidance.

There is nothing wrong in doing oral sex, for that matter sex and then realizing that the person is not worth love or living. Do not people get divorced after marriage. Let her decide on her future, ask her to get a psychiatric consultation if she has emotional, thought or behavioral problems.

No they are safe drugs, but do not seem to be from a standard company, seems local ones. Get the same from a good company, ask your psychiatrist for it. Also you need to stop the Ona 0.5 mg after some time because that is not advisable on a longer run. All the best.

Dear lybrate user, you are in grief. You are missing your mother. Losing your mother in an accident must have been very traumatic for you. You need some time to come out of this pain. Please talk to your family and friends about your mother abour how painful it is for you. Cry, if you want to. Relieve yourself of this pain. Seek support from your family and friends. About your financial problems, talk to someone elder and more experienced person. Understand your own skills and start earning. May be you can start tutions, pick up part time job etc. Take one small step at a time. Be consistent in your efforts. Keep trying till you succeed. Once you get relief from both these issues, you will be able to sleep. Take care.

You can test your lung capacity by pft. It's hard to determine the extent of damage to your lungs. Smoking cessation can stop further damage and over few years your lungs will recover slowly. The damage also depends on the exposure in terms of smoke years (number of cigarettes per day x number of years of smoking). You may take help of a psychiatrist if you have difficulty in quitting smoking.

Hi lybrate-user, its really important that your discuss your stress to eliminate it from root. Do the following: exercise regularly. Targeted exercise goes a long way toward freeing your body of stress hormones and increasing your endorphin levels - responsible for feelings of happiness. Carve out time during your busy day to exercise to both keep your body healthy and as a natural outlet for your stress. You should notice the difference. Get enough sleep. Give your body the sleep it wants, and your stress levels will take a nosedive. Sleep is a mechanism by which your body recuperates and restores its energy reserves. If you're not getting enough sleep, your body will use stress to keep you active and alert in the absence of stored energy. Most adults need at least 7-8 hours of sleep per night. Young children and older adults need more, about 9-10 hours of sleep per night. Eat properly. Your body needs to be healthy, strong, happy and properly fueled to help you tackle stress. Like it or not, stress is a bodily reaction to anything that disturbs its natural state, meaning that your body can have a profound effect on producing and relieving stress. Water has been shown to relieve stress. That's because a dehydrated body creates cortisol, a stress hormone. An under-hydrated body creates stress to motivate the owner of the body to properly care for him/herself. Start decreasing caffeine and alcohol intake. In some cases, alcohol intake increases stress response in humans while being linked to substance dependency, a stressful condition itself. Caffeine is also responsible for raising stress levels, especially at work, so try to stick to water as a general rule. Eat a healthy breakfast and healthy snacks during the day. It is better to eat several smaller meals throughout the day than to consume three large meals. For a healthy stress-free diet, consume more complex carbohydrates such as whole-grain breads and pasta, foods high in vitamin a such as oranges, foods high in magnesium like spinach, soybeans or salmon, and black and green tea, which contain antioxidants. Practice yoga and meditation. Although you could technically consider yoga your daily exercise, practicing the deep stretches and slow body movements will help you to clear your mind. Meditating - clearing your mind - while practicing gentle yoga will give double the relaxation effect to ease your stress. Use guided imagery to imagine a place that makes you feel at peace. Imagine somewhere that you feel happy; focus on the details to fully remove your mind from the present. Do yoga alone or in a group setting to help you learn new poses. As you advance in your yoga, you will be able to form complex stretches that force you to focus and take your mind off your stress. Practice deep relaxation by doing progressive muscle relaxation. This is when you work through your body by tensing your muscles, holding the tension for ten seconds, and then releasing it. This will soften and relieve all the muscles in your body. Consult for same all the best.

Hi lybrate-user, you are such a supportive wife, kudos to you! has he been taking medication, if yes, since how long? may be its time to change the doctor or the medication. People do stabilize after taking right kind of medication. More than that I think he requires psychotherapy from a counselor. Coax him into going to a psychotherapist for dealing with his thoughts and emotions. He might be having negative attitude and thoughts which may come in form of irritability and aggression. So proper emotional regulation is also important. You can give him more green leafy vegetables, salad, fruits- banana's, less caffeine, tell him to start exercising you can exercise along with him or do yoga/ meditation. If the loss of libido is due to medication it can be addressed if there is some other reason, you can share so that we can work on a solution. All the best.

Dear lybrate-user, welcome to lybrate. 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. I suggest anger management therapy. Take care.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. Usually will power is the best attribute to get rid of addiction. Your father should be motivated to leave smoking with the help of his will power. If he is unable to do so, next convenient method will be deaddiction therapy. No medicines alone can help quit smoking. Deaddiction therapy uses a comprehensive approach which also includes medicines. Take care.

I am a 64 years old man, well eucated and still earning well. I am well behaved, decent and very considerate towards others. I always try to ensure that I am not a cause of any trouble or inconvenience to people around me. I generally try to remain away from people and avoid interactions. However, I have developed a feeling that many people atteractions because of the fear of being misunderstood. When I was in active employment many of my colleagues used to be quite afraid of me because of my profesional competence, sincerity, honesty, and dominating nature. Of late, I have started feeling that people around me harbour a feeling of jealosy and envy towards me, because of which I have developed a phobia of people and try to remain in my room at home as well as office. Lease advise, what should I do to avoid this phobia because on slightest provocation people react very badly towards me. Therefore, I have developed a great phobia but I can not run away from the society and have to learn the ways of life and modulate my behaviour rather than expecting others to change. Despite being a medical doctor, and being pretty well informed and aware, I am going into a shell, please suggest some way to get out of this situation.

It is one thing to quit but it is another matter staying quit. You have to quit cold turkey because the body and mind will torture you endlessly while attempting a reduction in smoking. The tobacco tar in cigarette smoke lines your lung with huge patches that make that portion dysfunctional. Your oxygen carrying capacity is jeopardized, and breathing is impinged on. 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 do go for a thorough medical check-up to assess the effects of your abuse. Regarding improving your lungs, do a lot of aerobic exercise breathing through your nostrils only. Then there are a lot of deep breathing exercises in Yoga which you can learn too. Deep breathing cleanses your 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 yourself. The greatest effect is in the lungs because this substance is processed through the respiratory system directly through the lung surface. When quitting, you must take one day at a time; though you must give up all smoking at once, and promptly. If you look too far ahead you will get discouraged and will give up. If you sit and count the number of days you have given up, that will also focus too much on achievement. You must focus on the here and now, on that day to be precise. After all quitting is not that easy due to many factors. So even if you fail one day, you must try and try again. Very few people succeed in their first attempt. Your persistence will eventually pay off. The urge to discontinue is hampered by many factors but the worst of them is the conditioning. In fact, these conditions can exist all through the day, unlike other addictions. But your desire to want to stop is the most important factor. It is important to find out about the ill-effects of smoking to have a reason that alarms you about continuing the habit. The information is really scary but true and you must remind yourself about this every day. The nicotine in tobacco smoke stimulates the heartbeat to raise the blood pressure in no time at all. So you must avoid it like the plague: it is just very bad medicine for you. In fact, it is highly toxic too. You will need to stop smoking or consuming any tobacco related items with immediate effect. You should start vigorous exercises, gradually increasing it over a period of time. Do deep breathing exercises every time you feel like smoking (try Yoga), and replace the oral urge with some healthy food substitute to satiate the need. You may also take hard candy or chew gum. If the urge is too strong, then use nicotine gums and nicotine patches, for a little while until the smoking drive reduces, substantially. You may also join Smokers Anonymous in your city where the support is really extraordinary for like-minded people who are also in the same situation. Keep yourself 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 announce it to everyone that you have quit smoking. Here’s a piece of very good advice: even if you accidentally/willfully take a cigarette, it is not the end of the world – you can start the cessation all over again. You must persevere with the best support until you defeat this addiction. Counseling is very useful in the initial stages and when temptations are at their highest. You could also join twitter2quit program and enjoy its success to give up smoking.
