You need to focus on your social development skills, or the lack of it. You may have neglected this all your life or may come from a home where these skills are absent or poor. Fortunately because you are young you can improve on it soon. The final test of any personality is in the social context: what happens to you when you are with people? the next big test is when you are with members of the opposite sex. And the ultimate test of a personality is when you bed and board with a member of the opposite sex in marriage. You describe problems in two of these areas and must attend to it soon. You can start by attending a personality development course. You can also do a conversational skills course, a public speaking skills course, elocution course, and attend the toastmasters club. You may also meet with a counselor and learn about emotions and how to handle them appropriately. You may also have a poor self image, self esteem, self-confidence for various reasons; which may also be worked out with a counselor. While you are doing all this please frequent meetings, conferences, social clubs, participate in group games, seminars, get-togethers, parties, etc. You need to start gradually and build up as you pcik up the confidence. Also one big mistake we men make is that when we meet a girl we tend to think and see it a a sexual encounter unnecessarily. This will immediately complicate the simple meetings and bring in all kinds of unsavory elements into it. Be very conscious of this and willfully dispel this influence and learn to be cool.

When my wife is much stressed and due to some family disturbances she avoids sex saying not having mood. In this situation what shall do to have a pleasure sex and relief her from such stress or shall I quit sex at that time. Kindly advice and also advice how to seduce her in that situation.

Very simple (if you have patient enough). Deliberately induce her to talk about her stressors/problems, with active and sympathic listening. Do not pass any judgements/comments. Ask what are the measures she can take to overcome those problems. Give your advise or options only if she asks for. In other words, be a counsellor in such times. She will definitely feel relaxed. Then you can cuddle her like a child for a while without trying for sex. It will automatically end up in what you aimed at.

I am a 28 year old male, my question is that I feel like I have some problem with me because I tends to forget, focus, and I dont feel comfortable when face a crowd or a gatherings, I also have some problem with my hearings, etc. So would I be able to get cured because I am facing a lot of problem while in workplace, so kindly please help me. Thank you for your service.

What has caused all this? at your age you should be enjoying life with your friends and family. If you are sleeping for 12 - 16 hours per day, that means you are under lot of stress. Try to face the reality of life. Share your worries with someone who can understand you. If you do not have a friend or family member to share your burden with, then please talk to a counsellor. The counsellor will not judge you. The counsellor will only help you understand what is happening to you and how you can cope up with it. All the best.

Hi lybrate-user, the first step to getting back the colour of your lips is to stop smoking. Quitting can have some really amazing and immediate effects on your body. Apart from that, drinking enough water and keeping your lips well moisturised is an essential part of getting back their colour. Another great way to help your lips regain their colour is to exfoliate them regularly and avoid licking your lips (as this will only make them drier and tend to cause a change in their colour). Home remedies to lighten lips naturally toothbrush exfoliation: this is an extremely simple way to exfoliate your lips. All you need is to apply some petroleum jelly or olive oil on your lips and use a soft tooth brush to gently exfoliate them. Run the brush over your lips in gentle circular motions for about three to four minutes. Then wash your lips with some warm water and apply some desi ghee on them to keep them moisturised. Sugar and lemon exfoliation: this is another method to exfoliate your lips. Take a teaspoon of sugar, add a few drops of olive oil and lemon to the mix. Now take this paste and apply it on your lips. Gently massage your lips with this paste using soft circular motions to exfoliate them. Once all the sugar has dissolved or fallen off, wash away the excess with normal water. Lip packs lemon and honey pack: this is a great bleaching and moisturising pack. The lemon helps to change the colour of your lips and the honey nourishes the lips, making them soft and supple. To make this pack, take equal quantities of the juice of a lemon and honey. Mix it well and apply this on your lips. Allow it to stay for about twenty to thirty minutes and wash it off with normal water. Honey is great for supple and soft skin, know more here. Glycerine and lemon pack: again, a great natural bleaching and moisturising pack, this pack is best used just before you go to bed. Mix equal quantities of glycerine and lemon and apply this to your lips and allow it to stay overnight. Wash it off the next morning with normal water. Know other beauty benefits of glycerine here. Almond oil and honey pack: this pack uses the goodness of almonds and honey to change the colour of your lips. Mix some almond oil with honey in equal quantities and apply it to your lips. Now allow this mixture to stay for about thirty minutes and wash it off with plain water. Apply this pack three to four times a day for best results. Rose petals and milk pack: roses have amazing effect on the lips. Not only does it lend them a pinkish hue, but it also nourishes the skin. This pack is especially good to exfoliate your lips and make them look fuller. To make this pack, crush some fresh rose petals and add milk cream (malai) and honey to the paste. Now mix it well and apply the paste to your lips. Allow it to stay for fifteen to twenty minutes and then wash it off first with milk and then with water. Here are some beauty benefits of raw milk. Beetroot pack: beetroots have been used for centuries by women to make their lips look healthy, pink and plumper. But apart from the colour that beetroot lends to the lip, s it also adds to the overall health of the skin. Grate a little fresh beetroot and add some lemon and milk cream (malai) to the mix. Apply this paste on your lips and wash off after fifteen to twenty minutes. Turmeric and lemon pack: this pack employs the healing properties of turmeric and the bleaching effect of lemon to make it a great pack for lighter lips. Take a teaspoonful of turmeric and add the juice of half a lemon to it. Now mix well and apply this paste on your lips. Leave it on for about ten minutes and then wash off with water. Turmeric or haldi ensures glowing skin, know more about it here. Pomegranate and malai pack: the coarseness of pomegranate seeds and the colour it imparts is a very effective tool to change the colour of your lips from an unattractive blackish blue to healthy pink. To make this pack, grind a few pomegranate seeds into a coarse paste. Now, add some milk cream or malai to the paste and apply it on your lips. Allow it to stay for a few minutes and wash it off with normal water. For all these home remedies to work, it is essential that you moisturise your lips well after you wash off the pack. Remember that these are home remedies, they will give results only after prolonged use. So, just follow any one of the tips and watch your lips go back to their original colour. Also, know how to make lip balm at home. Hope this helps.

Can the Immune System Trigger Alzheimer's Disease

DM - Neurology
Neurologist
Ask Free Question
Alzheimer's disease is a neurological problem that is characterised by a cognitive decline and memory loss. It is a type of neurodegenerative dementia. The symptoms of alzheimer's disease include not being able to absorb and retain new information, lack of reasoning and judging, not being able to take on complex tasks, impaired visuospatial abilities, problems in reading, writing and speech, among many others. If a person has at least two of these symptoms in a debilitating manner, then the diagnosis can be made in favour of alzheimer's disease. The main causes of alzheimer's are shrinkage of the brain size and death of the brain cells. The immune system is also said to trigger this neurodegenerative disease. Let us find out what medical science has found so far.

1. Connections: many a times, in alzheimer's disease, the memory and behaviour of the person changes because the brain is unable to make proper neural connections which can lead to memory loss of how a person behaved and the elements that formed the basis of the patient's cognition. Apparently, the immune system behaves in the same way within the brain and blocks the connection. This happens because there is constant communication between the brain and immune system along neurological lines, which is where the disease first emanates.

2. Inflammation: the brain is prone to inflammation or swelling that is not the normal kind. This inflammation happens as a result of the activation of the infection fighting neurotransmitters and the chemical changes that happen in the brain when an infection strikes. The inflammation usually happens in the plaques or clumps which the brain tries to protect. These clumps are made up of a protein called amyloid. The immune system is responsible for creating this inflammation in the brain of the patient.

3. Pattern recognition receptors: many of these receptors work in different manners and cooperate with each other to create a response in the brain. These prrs can be found in the brain plaques, and they develop the signs of danger which further fuels the inflammation in the brain as a matter of protection.

4. Activation of cells linked with the immune system: when the prrs begin to respond, it basically activates the immune system and the cells of the same. This is the basic reaction that causes the changes in brain which then leads to the attachment of the protein to the tissue that is diseased, in which case alzheimer's disease starts. The inflammation that we had spoken about earlier basically happens in the nervous tissue.

It is important to recognise and act on the initial signs of alzheimer's disease before it progresses beyond one's control.

It seems that you are scared to talk to people. The desire is there but the fear is crippling you. You need to meet with a counselor to deal with this fear and learn how to express the feeling as well as to reach out. Are you afraid that you may not speak well, or that your ideas are not that good, or that people will judge you, or that they will find out about how poor you are intellectually, etc? these are unnecessary dialogues you have and they are not true at all. When people are in conversation, we are listening to information and how you present the same. You are very harsh on yourself and have decided, for some reason, that you are not good enough. You may have been reprimanded in childhood for speaking or your parents may have been too strict at home. These could intimidate you when you are to speak in front of people. All these matters must be taken up with the counselor. Start talking to people at home first, particularly children, and slowly grade up to older teens and then to adults, as you build confidence. If you prepare and rehearse the conversation you are likely to have, you will do very well when you actually do it. Now there is no guarantee that whatever you prepared is going to be the exact conversation but since you are prepared most of the conversation will go according to script and the rest will be easy to handle because they will be minor deviations from the main course. You could attend the toastmasters club, and go for conversational skills courses too. Good social practice will eventually see you through. Nothing will happen, if you are passive about this. For your information public speaking is the number one fear of all mankind. Yet, people speak and appear so confident: it is because they use the fear to advantage and prepare themselves well. So you are not alone.

I'm in depression. Reason is nothing but why it is happening with me since 7 days. Please help.
Depression is an illness like other illnesses. It can happen to any body, even physically strong and mentally robust persons may have depression. There may not be any reason, and it may occur without any reason also. Do you have other features of depression, like:- 1. Do you enjoy the pleasurable things like watching favourite tv serial or music as you used to enjoy earlier? 2. Do you like talking to others or you prefer to be alone now a days? 3. Do you feel sad most of the time and think negative about future? 4. Do you have enough sound sleep, do you feel fresh at morning? 5. Do you ever think yourself guilty of whatever wrong happened to you? 6. Do you feel yourself devoid of energy always? 7. Do you have lost concentration in job/ confidence in self? if more than 03 of the above answer are in yes in your case then you appears to be stressed and depressed. Adopt a healthy lifestyle with good diet, enough rest and recreation, adequate socialization and sleep. I suggest you to consult a psychiatrist who may assess you in detail and help you with some medicines and psychotherapy.

Life will not offer anything on a platter for you. You make your life. You cannot do so, if you hate yourself. This is a setup for depression. Instead of being your best friend, you have become your own enemy. When you became a diabetic, and you were extremely disappointed by that, it could be the reason. But in my opinion, it seems more than that. Go out there and face the world, in that manner you will attract positive forces and events into your life. Think positive, you will become positive. Your attitude has to change. Speak to a counselor to identify any past events in your life that may have impacted your mood and attitude. Work on what you discover and big changes may be the order of the day

You seem to be having high expectations fro your first night and your husbnd. And you are thoroughly disappointed that this is how your sex life will be? well to ally your doubts, it looks like that your husband hasn't got any experience of having sex before (which might mean that he's not slept around. Which could be good news for you and he's saved his chastity for you). This also might mean that he was suffering from performance anxiety and ddnt know hw to please you in bed. When a man is anxious and scared, it's common that he'll perform poorly in bed and if he's not even skilled then it'll be an even worst show ever. On top of that he might be scared of you as well. I'm not sure if the first nights outcome should be used as a yardstick to measure and evaluate his sexual prowess through out his life or could you give him a second chance where you could teach him how to pleasure you. Since you seem to be having some knowledge on this subject. If you see the statistics, you will know that most first nights are failures. I also suggest that you give your marriage a second chance so that your husband is more skilled in this subject. A sex therapist or counsellor can also help him to reduce his anxiety in bed and learn the techniques. For you, I suggest that you don't judge him so harshly and be patient with him. He's not an impotent loser just because he" came" too early. He's much more than a sex machine in bed! and probably you haven't noticed that yet. Marriage is not only about sex. Please see him as a human being who is willing to share his life with you and get old with you. A deeper understanding, trust, mutual respect, open communication are the central to a successful married life. All the best.

Medical causes of such panic episodes also have to be investigated in detail to form the most appropriate management plan. Consult a good psychiatrist in your city with details of your complaints.
