Dear Lybrate user. I can understand. Loosing someone dear and near causes grief. Grief leads to disappointment. Grief related disappointment manifests symptoms as in the case of depression. But disappointment symptoms are far shorter in duration than depression. These symptoms will vanish in some days or weeks. Don; t worry. Physical exercise, outdoor games, entertainment, hobbies etc could help you divert your attention. I suggest cognitive therapy. Take care.

How Does Sex Affects Your Relationship

How Does Sex Affects Your Relationship

Physical intimacy forms a vital part of romantic relationships, marital or otherwise. Going by the general hierarchy of human needs, the drive for sex is one of the basic urges of a human being that needs to be fulfilled before moving on to higher level needs, which include security and companionship.

Sex in a relationship is very important because:
1. It ensures the overall satisfaction of both the individuals in the relationship.
2. It helps in forging a deeper emotional connect with the partner, thereby, establishing trust and understanding.
3. Sexual intimacy helps in establishing a rather firm relationship base, thus facilitating a stronger psychological bond.
4. Sex helps both the partners acknowledge the worth of the relationship, even more. Since, there is more clarity and transparency, sex helps both the partners come absolutely clean in terms of what they want from the relationship.
 

Foreplay
Foreplay helps in establishing trust in the relationship by letting the partner know that the other wants to stay with him/her and it is not the act of sexual intercourse that is only important. The lack of sex in a romantic relationship reduces the psychological wellbeing of both the partners and their emotional and physical satisfaction and takeaways from the relationship.

Complications
It is important to not use sexual act as a weapon or as an answer to disputes. This eventually results in the degradation of the relationship. In most marital or couple counselling sessions, the partners are questioned about their sex life and encouraged to enhance it, but not as a solution to their emotional problems. It is only advised to bring the couple closer. Research suggests that physical intimacy is a close second to emotional intimacy in relationships and they both go hand in hand in bettering the relationship. Needs, both sexual and emotional, require equal fulfilment to ensure a long standing relationship. However, both the types of needs need to be prioritized, and this priority varies among couples and both partners must work towards striking a balance between the two.

I have a friend. We both are very close to each other and share every secret. He has one elder brother, aged 31, working in a call center and one younger sister, completed her engineering searching for jobs. My friend is pursuing CA. His father is working in Railways and mother is a teacher. His parents have completed more than 32 years of marriage. Issue is his father at present is a earning more than 1lakh per month but he is not spending a single penny in the family or on himself. From the day they had got married. His salary comes to his account but within 1or 2 days he himself encash the whole amount by cheque and does not disclose where that amount is. When his mother ask to him regarding his salary for housing and other expenses his father tells salary has not came yet or I have sent those money to his sister or brother or sometimes to my friend. His father always lies to all the family members. They don't have a proper house to live. His mother is very much concerned about childrens wedding. What ever she is earning gets spend. She is not having any savings because of this. He and his siblings are staying away from home. His father has also got posted in Dhanbad, Jharkhand. Mother is staying in Patna alone. His father very often comes to Patna on weekend for Saturday or Sunday. Sometimes only for Sunday. Sometimes not at all. He is facing problems in his studies as the passing percentage is very low in the institute and his father keeps on telling him to fill the forms for Government Jobs but does not give him a single penny for anything. He gets only Rs. 5000 from his mother. Which is very hard to manage in a city like Delhi. He was telling he is very much disturbed regarding his family and his studies. Because of this he is facing failure from past 3 years and has got very much depressed. He is having tension all the time in his mind this has caused baldness for him. Please suggest how to handle the situation as his age is about 30 years old and still no job and he has not yet married. He is very much disturbed for lot of reasons. I feel very bad for him facing such issues. Please help!

It is very nice of you to care for your friend. As you are very close to your friend it is natural for you to feel bad for him. From what you have written it is apparent that your friend will not be able to change his father's behaviour. Also unless his parents are willing and open he or anyone else won't be able to do much about them. It is also clear that his mother has single handedly cared for her children and earned and raised them. This may sound harsh. I am very surprised that at about 30 years your friend is still depending on his mother and father financially. Not only that he blaming his father for not supporting him financially. Your friend should grow up and take charge of his life. Instead of feeling helpless or blaming either circumstances or his father for his destiny- he should invest his energy into. Completing his study, getting good grades and find a job. I. Am glad he is not married yet. He should not think about marriage until he is able to support himself. As a good friend I think you could take this opportunity to make your friend understand his own responsibility towards his life. He seems to be an intelligent person who if focus in his study would be easily able to pass and also secure a good job. I think you need to help him change his focus from blaming and expecting things from his father to taking charge of his own life. If you think he needs any specific advice then please feel free to book an audio consultation with me. It is truly painful to see such a talented young man not able to utilize his full potential. If need be he could speak to a counselor or psychologist for 2 to 3 months on a weekly basis. I do help you understand what I am saying regarding your friend taking charge of his life. Wishing you both very best.

Hi, Zolfresh is designed to be a sleeping tablet. Apart from improving your sleep it is good to know that it had a positive effect on your emotional wellbeing too in the past. Antidepressant medications are designed specifically to prove mood and related symptoms of depression. There are several different medications available to choose from classes such as SSRIs, SNRIs, TCAs etc. Most commonly SSRIs are prescribed as first line treatment for depression. However it is always advisable to consult a psychiatrist to discuss which medication suits you to imrpove your condition.

Dear lybrate-user you need to consult any professional as soon as possible, medicines along with counselling can help. Life is very precious we get only 1 life so enjoy as much as you can there are many colours in life ,only the difference lies in our approach just think about patient who is suffering from cancer at last stage that patient will desperately want to live as much as he/she can ,i know by only saying its really difficult to manage ,but you have to divert your mind, try to make yourself busy as much as you can so that no other type of thoughts come. And if still thought comes then write it on paper and also write that you will think on this topic at some other time mention the time and say to yourself that at now I am suppose to do some other work ,you can take the help of counsellor regarding this. If you need my help you can contact me. Make some new friends, try to chat on fb ,but anyhow you have to make yourself busy, increase social activities, you can do anulom vilom yoga and some deep breathing exercise, join any hobby class, listen loud music as it will interfere with your thought, you can make some plan with friends, make any good friend so that by sharing you will feel good. Take care.

I am scared to die or hear any death or accident of my close ones. Recently one of my relative died due to accident. So there is always fear inside me. I call my husband everytime everyday whether he reached ofice or not or anywhere else.He uses bike daily.So i am worried all the time .I feel fine when all my family members are home.Is this depression.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Death will come whenever it has to come. Trust me on this, and therefore focus on the moment. The present is important, and if you are alive, live like one enjoying that fact. You are developing a phobia about death without proper justification. If you have a good reason to worry about accidents, like if your husband drinks and rides the bike, I can understand. Other than that, it is mere generalization that one accident to someone else will mean that your husband will also somehow meet with one. This is a death fixation. This can cripple you, and it seems it already has. At least trust in God and say your prayers with faith. This type of obsession will make others uncomfortable and may in fact suggest, at an unconscious level, that some danger is imminent. This can have a disturbing effect on the other person and in fact may lead to an accident by self-fulfillment. If death has to come by destiny or design, there is nothing you can do about it, apart from taking all the usual precautions. Your fear it turning into an anxiety and will affect your children too. Meet with a counselor to work out the facts of the reality and without taking undue precautions live a normal life. Unexpressed fear is very suggestive, if you let it. Fear always tends to find a form, and it usually finds something scarier than the reality, and makes it look like a surety. Keep yourself occupied, do regular exercise and always express your feelings appropriately: ?The idle mind is a devil?s workshop. If your mind is fed positives thoughts and is occupied with mind-engaging activities, these ideas will not torment you like this. This is not yet depression but you can give yourself one over time.

Dear lybrate user, Applying of herbal treatments such as sage, lavender, tea tree oil and chamomile. These herbs have anti-pruritic and soothing properties which can relieve severe itch. These can also make the skin smoother upon application. Salt water application. This can be done several times in a day to alleviate itchiness. The salt contained in the solution attracts the water contained in the bumps, thus relieving swelling. Herbal medicines containing camphor and menthol can also be applied to the infected area. Camphor and mint have antibiotic properties. Proper hygiene. Daily bathing and cleansing can prevent as well as treat the painful red bumps on the skin.

Hi, my father had heavy drinking habit, we are trying to stop, he will leave that one are two days, then he will going as tease, how can I stop that,

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
That is part of the problem in his failure: 'we are trying to stop'. It is your father who wants and needs to want to stop! If he does the outcome will be successful and less frustrating. Because of his age and length of abuse it will be quite difficult but not impossible. If you think that he will find it very difficult, then admit him to a hospital and go for de-addiction: which normally lasts for about two weeks. Then follow that up with addiction counseling from a professional for at least three years to completely get rid of the habit. If this is also not enough, then admit him into a de-addiction center and let him stay there for at least 6 months and after that attend counseling with a professional. There are medicines that help with the drinking just to ease the initial craving. 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 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. His 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. His children will also have to attend meetings to work out their issues because of the father’s habit. In fact, they are all suffering from the Adult Children Of Alcoholics Syndrome (ACOAs), which in effect means that they are genetically predisposed to alcoholism or can have cross addiction problems and they will have similar traits of the abusing alcoholic but in a milder form. There are special support groups for them all over the world. Should they touch or indulge in alcohol or any addictive substances or behaviors, they could also become full-fledged addicts themselves. If your dad refuses to go for rehabilitation, then some centers have a method of picking him up when he is totally sloshed and is not able to fight back effectively. They will need the family’s written consent before willing to take him in this manner. Make a serious plan with your mom and other siblings and whoever else’s support he can get and act on it fast. Since he has tried a few times, make this one the final and do it like I have advised. It is really worth all the effort.
