I am having continuous thoughts of suicide, but my parents think that it will be ok by the time passes. Should I consider it to be right or seek help from the doctors?

Dear Lybrate user. I can understand. Depressive disorder or depression is a neuro chemical disorder. Suicidal tendency is one main symptom of depression. You must be able to distinguish between mental disease and mental disorder. Your problem is a mental disorder. Not a mental disease. These mental disorders are usually treated with a combination of medicines and other means like awareness, meditation, Psychotherapy techniques, life style changes etc. Take care.

Dear lybrate user, high sugar levels are definately a cause for you to worry about your mother. Stress can be major contributing factor for high sugar levels. It appears to me that your mother is emotional kind of person. She may not sharing her feelings with anyone. But that causes tension. She needs an outlet to express her emotions. I would suggest you to take her to a counsellor who will help her to relieve of her intense feelings. Once her tension is released then she will be able to think rationally and will have lesser stress.

I am constantly worried about little things. I have social anxiety and I can not even talk to my friends and family comfortably. Whenever I need to talk to my teachers or strangers my heart starts thumping. This is affecting my personal life and career goals very badly. I am shocked at how bad I am with social interactions and personal life management. I also feel like my cognitive ability has declined as I used to be very sharp but now I struggle understanding even simple concepts. Sometimes I have vague thoughts of suicide but I know I will never get this far. I really need to know what is going on with me and what can I do about it. I am completely unable to make good relations even if I try hard. I really need help.

Dear Lybrateuser, -You have social anxiety disorder especially when meeting & facing people -you should try to overcome your anxiety by diverting your mind in various activities like reading, listening to music, following a hobby instead of thinking all the time about your problems -do deep breathing & yoga in the morning for 10-15 min daily & other aerobic exercises like walking, jogging, these will bring down your stress level & relax your mind & body, interact more with your parents, friends, speak out & do deep breathing if anxiety grips you -eat a well balanced diet with more of fruits & vegetables, do not skip meals, have meals on time -have 7-8 glasses of water for good hydration which helps in concentration & keeps you energized -sleep well for 7-8 hrs at night, keep your sleep & wake up time fixed -if not much relief then consult a councellor, will help you.

This is probably a personality related issue. These kinds of problems are common and not treatable with medicines. This is particularly so if your nature has been so since early years. However, psychotherapy or specialized counseling can certainly help. It will need some time and effort from your side to do this.

Masturbation has nothing to do with memory power. The stress about you thinking it is a problem will affect your memory. So stop worrying about it. Masturbation is not really bad; it is the addiction to it that is bad. Not even the number of years is a problem but the frequency and compulsiveness to do it is to be considered for its ill-effects. At your age you may feel it difficult and it can become addictive if you have alone time, if you obsess about it, and if you are not into relationships. The problem with addiction to this is that you may go on to prefer masturbation to heterosexual contact, even when you are married. That obviously would be an insult to your wife and will lead to a lot of conflict. Heterosexual contact is very wholesome and the physiology is made exactly for penile and vaginal contact. You will instead enjoy a poor replica of this and not know or care for the difference. The second thing that can happen with addiction is that it will become compulsive and will have no boundaries or limits, since it can be done all by yourself, whenever, wherever, and however too. The big problem a lot of children get into is the guilt around this. A useful way to discharge the energy is to get into contact games, or exercises, or even hobbies to channelize it. Also you should not spend too much time alone, and you need to keep your mind occupied with other interesting things and a lot of socializing. Even if you are not interested in marriage, for whatever reasons, it will help you to get into a friendship with a girl and enjoy the relationship where there will be a lot of excitement when you fall in love. Right now your hormones may be very active and your physiological apparatus is primed and ready for sexual stimulation. But because of your age and even otherwise it is important to develop good control and not feed into your impulses. Keeping yourself occupied and living a healthy social life are the keys to manage your sexual drives. In the meantime do some of these recommendations very faithfully to improve memory: 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 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 is a new exercise called Super Brain Yoga, which is done by holding the right earlobe with your left thumb and index finger, and the left earlobe with your right hand’s thumb and index finger. In this position, you must squat down and rise up and do this for five minutes every day. There is 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 the family goes for counseling too. The following foods do help too: Blueberries, walnuts, turmeric, Spinach, tomatoes, broccoli, acorn squash, green tea, oily fish, boiled egg, turkey, apples, oatmeal, leafy greens, lentils, pumpkin seeds, avocado, cinnamon, thyme, sunflower seeds, and red wine. Avoid sugar and junk food. You may also include these noted foods that are good for your brain health: Brain-Friendly Foods MIND stands for Mediterranean-DASH Intervention for Neurodegenerative Delay. But the MIND approach “specifically includes foods and nutrients that medical literature and data show to be good for the brain, such as berries,” says Martha Clare Morris, ScD, director of nutrition and nutritional epidemiology at Rush University Medical Center. You eat things from these 10 food groups: •Green leafy vegetables (like spinach and salad greens): At least six servings a week •Other vegetables: At least one a day •Nuts: Five servings a week •Berries: Two or more servings a week •Beans: At least three servings a week •Whole grains: Three or more servings a day •Fish: Once a week •Poultry (like chicken or turkey): Two times a week •Olive oil: Use it as your main cooking oil. •Wine: One glass a day You avoid: •Red meat: Less than four servings a week •Butter and margarine: Less than a tablespoon daily •Cheese: Less than one serving a week •Pastries and sweets: Less than five servings a week •Fried or fast food: Less than one serving a week.

Dear Lybrate user. I can understand. Memory and mind power depends on three aspects. Understanding, retention and recollection. Recollection is easy if your retention is proper and flawless. Retention is possible when you are able understand what you read or learn. To understand you should have concentration. Concentration comes from effective learning techniques based on creative and active learning. Physical exercise, outdoor games, entertainment, socializing coupled with systematic learning improves your memory and mind power. Brain games like sudoku and jigsaw puzzles helps too. I suggest online education counseling. Take care.

You should have first appreciated his frankness and that he wants out of this addiction. This is a very good starting point. I also must take this opportunity to mention that institutions, especially educational ones, must invite experts on these topics to educate both staff and students so that both prevention and cure can be attempted at the first point of contact, at the institutional level. You did right to guide him to the counselor and I hope that person was able to help him. Even so it is always better for you to know yourself what to do to start with. Please remember that you cannot be an expert but at least you could do the correct thing when someone reaches out to you. The most important thing is to acknowledge the honesty and then guide the person to the right help. In any addiction there is a huge component of obsession. That is the individual will think about sex very often until it leads to the compulsion i. E. There will be a strong tendency to want to act on that obsession. It will feed into an impulse. Immediate measures would be to have him restrict his access to the net, dvds and magazines. He must also occupy his mind with thoughts other than sex, by engaging him in activities of interest, being in groups, exercising, and finding other sources of entertainment. He should also be put on a schedule of tight activities. He must be taught to respect a contract to call you whenever he is tempted and you must help him out at that time to overcome the impulse. A good sex education program will help him respect sex and the opposite gender, and kill the curiosity and experimental drive. Guiding him towards a relationship with the opposite sex will also lighten the burden of seeing girls in a rather telescopic view and making them objects of love. He will need the support of whomever it is possible to get involved without compromising on confidentiality. It might take some time for him to come out of it, especially if he is into late adolescence when the hormones at its highest.

Hi I am 30 years old, I am smoking for the past 10+ years, now I want to quit smoking but I could not as I have tried many ways. Do you have a any solution please.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You may be very close to resolving your habit once and for all. Particularly with regard to smoking, it is the repeated attempts that finally are rewarded with success. So do not give up and go for another attempt. This time around use some of the suggestions I propose below. The habit can be very difficult because of the many conditions attached to smoking. 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 in the habit. The information is really scary. The nicotine in tobacco smoke stimulates the heart beat 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 chewing gum. If the urge is too strong, then use nicotine chewing gum or 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. All the damage you incurred earlier because of the smoking can be reverted back to normal in quick time. I think that this is your last attempt: you will succeed.

My question is psychologic. I am a good looking fair boy. One year ago I had married with a girl which is whitish in color and not too beautiful not ugly. I done marriage under the pressure of my parents. Now I am feeling complexion as I look my all frds wife they are almost everyone fair and beautiful. And now I feel complexion to go to any party and also when I look to my wife I feel cheated and I am not talking with her very nicely. I am not going to any public place with her inspite of her nature is very nice. Help.

M.Sc - Applied Psychology
Psychologist, Bangalore
hi, you are looking at the shallow aspect of life. If you wanted to marry a beautiful fair girl then you could have told your parents about it instead of getting married under pressure and hurting your wife for no fault of hers! You maybe finding it hard because your wife doesn't fit the category of beautiful that you were looking for in your spouse but there are other aspects to a person's personality other than beauty. You mentioned that your wife is nice by nature, will it be possible to accept her for her niceness which is a boon these days....connect with her other qualities, connect to the person she is, at a human level. How would it have been if your wife was beautiful but not 'nice', would you be happy then? You feeling conscious about taking your wife among your get-togethers has got to do with your own unacceptable of her as she is. How much happy are your friends in their married life is a secret best known to them. The day you will learn to connect with her at humane level, you may realise her true beauty which will only enhance with the growing years together, skin beauty will only fade with time and it's the emotional connect that you will build with her will last for long. So look deeper into her as a living being with feelings and emotions and don't judge her for her colour. She too has the right to reject you for the way you treat her but she is being kind to you. Spend some quality time together and explore each others likes, wants, needs and dreams. This will bring to your notice other truly beautiful aspects of each other and help in creating a secure relationship.

I am 24 yrs old female. I am not able to concentrate on anything. I get headache very easily. I cannot sleep. Most of the time I cry too much and sometimes I want to end my life. Am I suffering from depression or its just thyroid problem?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
I am most certain it is depression and it is an anger related one too. Life is very precious and no matter how bad the situation is do not even think about suicide. If it keeps coming back to you talk to someone regularly. Any way I think you must meet with a counselor and if that person thinks that you need to meet with a doctor too, you must. But your cooperation is a must with both therapies. Your concentration will definitely be affected under these circumstances. The earlier you treat this condition the better. In the meantime please do the following sincerely because you could resolve the problem better with good cooperation: Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber, nuts, avocado, exercise regularly, eat dark chocolate, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. I suggest you do the opposite of what this depression makes you feel like doing (actually, not doing): you will need to fight this condition. You must become active; stay upright during the daylight time; meet people; never sleep during the day, wake up by 6 am every day, play some active games, especially contact games, do physical exercises, talk to people and join some social clubs, attend Yoga classes etc. Watch sitcoms on TV or comedies and cheer yourself up. Go for excursions in groups, for outings, camps, conferences, and religious conventions. Get a pet dog and spend time training it, exercising it and relating to it. Expose yourself to some sunlight every day, at least 30 minutes but not in the scotching heat. Whatever happens, please incorporate these three important adaptations in your life: always be responsible, be respectful, and be functional. If you did these three, lots of things will go well in life. Please pray and have faith in God to alleviate your sufferings. Don’t wait for others to help. Use your own motivation, which might be at its lowest, but persevere and win this battle. Above all to be really happy, you need to live in love and for love. Learn all about emotions and how to handle them and that will get you out of the depression rather easily and quickly. A counselor is there only to facilitate you, all the hard word must come from you, and your cooperation with that person is very critical for your success. Be positive everyday and learn to be contended with what you have. Do some left brain exercises: it is the happy brain. Here are a few suggestions: 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. Whatever happens please cooperate with the therapy and do not discontinue until the condition is completely resolved.

You could be having a spurt in your growth hormone and will feel this level of sleepiness and tiredness. In the meantime examine the following for relevance to your current age: I suspect that the adolescent issues with regard to hormones may be affecting your ability to concentrate and remember. When the hormones play up, it lasts for a period of close to two years and during that time you could be influenced by three signs directly impacted by the chemical: you will tend to become aggressive and rebellious, you will become sexually active, and you will have acne and pimple problems. The hormonal imbalances may not only impact your memory because of the chemical but also bring some distractions that come with it. But you may work on the following even if the hormones kick in: 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.

4 Everyday Habits That Can Kill Your Love Life

MBBS, MCCEE, Fellowship in Sexual Medicine
Sexologist, Jaipur
4 Everyday Habits That Can Kill Your Love Life

Daily habits have the power to leave you limp during or after intercourse. These habits can result in low libido and low desire to engage in intercourse with your partner. However, once you identify them, it is easier to rectify them.

Here are a few daily things which might leave you limp:

  1. Not nourishing your libido enough: One major reason of a depreciating sex drive can be attributed to low libido, which can be an outcome of poor dietary choices. Add more aphrodisiacs to your diet such as oysters, dark chocolates, bananas, strawberries and yogurt which are rich in zinc, magnesium and other minerals which help in increasing your sex drive.
  2. Over-masturbation: Engaging in self-stimulation too many times a day can result in fatigue and other health problems. The acceptable number of times a person should masturbate in a day is 2-3 times, however, if you engage in masturbation more than that, you can experience problems like a limp, flaccid penis and reduced sexual drive.
  3. Increase in insulin levels: Consuming too much sugar during the day can result in spiked insulin (blood sugar levels) in your body. This ends up making you feel more lethargic. It was recently discovered that in men, insulin raises ‘oestrogen’, leading to low libido and in graver cases, erectile dysfunction. Another study linked excess glucose or blood sugar with a dip in the levels of testosterone, thus, leaving you limp before/after intercourse.
  4. Stress: Though some amount of stress is considered normal, when the levels of distress go sky-rocketing, it might leave you limp as if affects your sexual performance. Instead of relieving stress, sex ends up feeling more like a liability which can result in you having problems getting an erection or getting an orgasm. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.

My cousin has recently developed a habit of drinking wine. He often comes drunk at home. and his mom is very worried. What should be the solution sir?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Ideally, he must want to stop himself. If not he has not reached what is called, 'Hitting Rock Bottom'. There are no guarantees about stopping one’s addiction. But that does not mean we should not keep at it, over and over again until we succeed. Now it is difficult to give up all by himself because he has become addicted to alcohol and there is so much to do. Under such circumstances it is best that you admit him into a de-addiction center and let him stay there for at least 6 months and after that he can attend counseling with a professional. There are medicines that help with the drinking just to ease the initial craving and to act as an antabuse i.e. he will have a serious reaction, if he consumes even a small quantity of alcohol or alcohol based substances. It has to be carefully monitored to see that he not only consumes the medication but is also avoiding alcohol. Ultimately, it is his will power and the support that he receives from the medical fraternity and his close and dear ones. He must also learn to substitute and deal with the oral need, a rigid value system, the script issue, and of course take a look at all the genetic factors to plan a strategy not to get into what is called ‘cross addictions’ i.e. another form of addiction that may appear alright but is in fact as bad as the primary addiction. The center or hospital and the counselor will advise and guide him on several measures and precautions he will need to take to stay with his resolve. Even after the rehabilitation he must attend AA meetings and continue this support for a long time. The family will also need to attend some sessions and go for Al-anon meetings for their co-dependency issues. He cannot be treated in isolation because the family has gotten used to his drinking and have made some unhealthy adaptations to somehow cope. Make a serious plan with whoever else’s support he can get and act on it fast. If he is not cooperative, there are some centers that will come and pick him up, after he is completely drunk, and admit him by force. This will however, require the family’s consent.
