Dear lybrate user. I can understand. At your age, memory problems like amnesia, dementia etc are not possible. Don't worry. Still if you insist that you have memory problems, we need to conduct a memory test online. Take care.

Dear Lybrate User Getting involved into a sexual relationship with your partner is completely a couples decision. You both are adults and mature enough to take up decisions. Just remember that take your decision wisely as every decision will bring it's own consequences. If you made up a choice then also be prepared to handle it's repercussions. As partners you both need to talk to each other about each other worries and concerns. You both need to discuss about important ingredients of a relationship. Physical intimacy is important in a relationship but it's not the only thing that builds up the relationship. Both partners need to understand each other's priorities and needs. They need to value each other's decisions too. So have a dialogue with your partner. Lastly but very important thing is to discuss things with a gynaecologist. Take proper guidance from her. Clarify all your queries regarding your body with her. If you wish, you can also take your partner along when visiting or discussing things with her. All the best.

Sex change as medical procedure. Humans are most commonly said to have "a sex change" when they undergo sex reassignment therapy, that is, a set of medical procedures undergone by transgender people to alter their sexual characteristics from male to female or from female to male. Sex reassignment surgery or SRS (also known as gender confirmation surgery, gender reassignment surgery, genital reconstruction surgery, sex realignment surgery, or, colloquially, a sex change) is the surgical procedure (or procedures) by which a transgender person's physical appearance and function of their existing.

My brother age 21 yrs drinks alcohol. I wanted to ask if giving dizone is safe. I am worried about its impotency side effect.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
The most common side effect of disulfiram includes drowsiness and fatigue. Many patients experience metallic or garlic-like aftertaste, but most patients develop tolerance to this effect. In addition, disulfiram is also associated with impotence. This is most common in doses of 500 mg daily. Disulfiram can also cause blurred vision, skin discoloration, inflammation of the skin, increased heart rate, and mental changes. During the first three months of therapy, patients should have their liver function evaluated. Patients need to be monitored for the signs of jaundice, nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, light stools and dark urine as these may be the signs of liver damage due to disulfiram. The signs of alcohol ingestion include flushing, headache, nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain. If he uses will power, he can stop using. Can help him with regular advice and follow up. Ask privately

Anticipation of stress and preparing oneself for anticipated stressful life events prevents anxiety and stress related disorders.
For example: like one prepares for mock tests well ahead in time before the main exam or even spot exams, in a similar way anticipate life stressors. For example, if one is 30yrs old - mid career, anticipate financial stress and plan for it. Anticipate BP or Diabetes in Mid Forties and start changing lifestyle now. Anticipate heart disease and operation in Mid- fifties, anticipate illhealth of other family members, anticipate financial stress about children's education, children leaving home in your sixties, anticipate mobility problems in late 60's and 70's.
Anticipate and prepare for health insurance etc.
Despite all this planning expect any sudden life events. Taking time for yourself - building your skills, exercising, enjoyable hobbies, playing a small role in society and leading a balanced simple life can alleviate lots of stress related illness and anxiety disorders and of course LESS MEDICAL BILLS.

Hello doctor, we known cigarette is a harmful for human body. If we can't leave this bad habit now. please help

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You can leave it but you must persevere until you meet success. 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 in 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 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 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.

It sounds to me like you are depressed and very often anxiety goes with the depression. You must go and meet with a counselor immediately and if that person advises that you meet with a doctor you must do so and cooperate to your utmost. Please visit these professionals along with your parents. 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 scorching 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 every day and learn to be contented 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. Life is extremely precious and everything that can sustain and promote life must be sought after. You must discuss this with your counselor. I also suggest that you pursue​ spiritual wellness because a genuinely spiritually sound person will never contemplate suicide or attempt it ever.

What is memory and how we can recall the things quickly?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist,
Memory is the ability of the brain to recall any stimulus that your five senses have registered in your daily routine, either consciously or unconsciously. There are long term and short term memories. Memory plays a very important role in learning, solving problems, speech, knowledge accumulation, imagination skills, conversations, composing etc. that will affect your confidence and performance. To recall quickly one would need to train the brain by exercises to actually practice the speed factor. For example, you may read some material from a page and practice recalling whatever you are able to remember within the shortest time. You must also learn to live stress-free, sleep well, eat well, exercise and use certain permutations to aid memory. For example, moderate consumption of red wine and peanuts have been recently found to improve memory. There are several other exercises you may wish to use to improve your speed. If you like you may contact me for some suggestions.

I am a college going girl of 20 years. I always keep thinking about anything bad and remain sad. I always want to be alone and leave my home or to hurt myself in anyway. If I am with my friends then I'll be ok and don't let them even know about that I am depressed but as they leave I am again like before. I feel like. Lie on bed and remain silent. Dont want to speak even a word, don't even want to move, neither wanna eat anything nor drink. I don't even want anyone around me. I want to be alone forever. I want to be at a place where no one knows me. I am feeling like i am going mad.

To really understand your problem in its totality, is to go back home to your family of origin to trace some of the genesis of your problems. You may ignore all my assessments for want of complete evidence, and that is okay. I am not the world’s perfect diagnostic man, nor do I boast of knowing it all. So feel free to take what appeals and dump the rest in the garbage can. In my opinion, I think that your problem lies in the fear of rejection. This rejection is usually founded in your family of origin, and is somewhat manifest in some descriptions you have given already. This is not to find fault in your parents: they may have done a lot of things with good intentions but may have inadvertently set up rejection. If you go way back, and see if there was any rejection prenatally or postnatally (again all this with intention or without), the child will pick up the sensation or feel like she is not wanted or even rejected. As you can see, I am presuming all this. You will have to give it substance, if you so have the substance. Without reaching to any conclusions, just indulge in this thought to see if there is any semblance of truth to explore it further. Your parents may throw light on this but don’t share too much of what I saying until it has been verified. Also find out, if there was an abortion or miscarriage before or after you were born. Whether you were wanted by both parents at birth. Whether they expected a male child and were disappointed that you were a girl. How long were you breast-fed by mom etc? These will all throw some light on my proposal of rejection, if there is any truth. You must be your best friend but when you want to hurt yourself then it is a sign that you have become your worst enemy. The solution is really very simple: you must accept and love yourself, first. Take all this material and meet with a counselor with your parents and get some help to resolve the rejection. Withdrawn from people will add to the depression: your resolution lies with being and loving people!

Hi i am 18 years old and I've been smoking herbal shisha. My dad won't let me buy one. We know its not good for us but herbal is better than tobacco shisha right? And I used to smoke cigarettes and herbal shisha is better than that right? I just wanna show my dad it is bad but not the point of tobacco or cigarettes. I also never heard of someone get cancer from it. Its not ruled out but still. Please advise.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Perhaps this article will help throw some light on your mis-perceptions. the other danger is that because it is a smoking habit but without tobacco after sometime you will easily switch over to tobacco smoking too. Read this article: Just because something is marketed as herbal doesn’t make it healthy—especially when it comes to smoking shisha, which can contain toxic metals, tar and other carcinogenic compounds sometimes on par with cigarettes, warn researchers from the University of Alberta. In a new study published this month in the peer-reviewed journal Tobacco Control, an international team of researchers led by the U of A studied three popular Canadian brands of herbal shisha and found trace toxic metals such as chromium, nickel and arsenic, in addition to high levels of tar in smoke inhaled from shisha hookahs, or water pipes. Herbal shisha also contained carcinogenic compounds such as chrysene, found in coal tar, and naphthalene, used in mothballs, in levels matching or exceeding what’s found in cigarettes. None of the three brands identified ingredients or had content warnings—a level of oversight not required in Alberta. “It’s a misuse of the word herbal, which has a connotation of health,” said Barry Finegan, lead author and a professor of anesthesiology and pain medicine in the Faculty of Medicine & Dentistry. “Unlike a bottle of pop, which contains a list of ingredients, you can buy a package of shisha material commercially and have no idea what’s actually in it. A consumer cannot assess carefully what’s in the package and whether there’s a potential health risk; there’s no consistency to it.”

You are still young. Only since 5 years you are smoking. These things makes quitting comparatively easy. Later, it is hard and takes more efforts to quit. If you have any withdrawal symptoms like headache, lack of concentration, increased hunger, irritability or lack of memory, you can try with nicotine gum or lozenges or patch. Please motivate yourself continuously with some gifts for next 12 weeks. That will reduce craving for nicotine. All the best. Cough and chest pain needs investigations to rule out harmful effects of smoking. Even if they are normal at present, quitting smoking keeps it normal for many years.
