Hello doctors. It's my humble request, pls read this story fully and guide me on this. I am 23 years old boy, in a distant relationship with a girl since 6 years. My relationship not started with her on the basis of physical appearance like what guys look in a girl today. But it all started with an emotional attachment, I never took her as a mean of satisfying my sexual need. I did not feel lustfull to her, but I loved her. Though I felt sexually with her but it was a deep emotional bond rather than just a lustful feeling. I always used to be excited with her, used to cry for her, it was all ok. But things are not ok since last 2 and half year, I had been in a state of extreme depression for about a year, and also had have a lot of negative thoughts, it was sexual intrusive thoughts. Actually I worked in a company for two years, where the moral circumstances among staffs were not good, they watched on girls vulgarly, which I never found good, they used to use abusing words in their every conversation. Even people commented vulgarly on the females of their daughter's age. Whenever I faced their those kind of behaviors, I got panicked, their those vulgar comments felt in my ear like a needle piercing deeply. I was a very morally-good person. But what happened is that, I started having sexual intrusive thoughts, do not know why, may be becoz of their comments which always used to pop in my head. I still have those Intrusive thoughts, I am fighting them since last 3 years. I changed my life totally. I was a very emotional person, but now I do not Feels emotions, for no one. I also had have a lot of disappointment in my relationship with my lover, she is very lovable but one thing which is not good with her is that she never accept her faults, whenever we had a mess, she never messaged or called me first, always I did. This always disappointed me. When I was in the state of depression and a very high anxiety (caused by those intr. Thoughts), I started watching porn and masturbating heavily, 5-6 times a day, Whenever I had a mess with her or I was low, sad, anxious, I masturbated to make myself calm, But after every masturbation, I felt a deep guilt, how can I do that, I love my lover with the deepest of mt heart then how can I watch those girls in the porn, I felt myself cheating her. I have been struggling with this since last 3 years, have lost emotions, for her and also for others. Now I always ask myself, do I love her. Which somewhere in my heart I know that I do, but still I ask myself. My head feels different now. It seems like something is missing in the upper part of mt brain, I have started stammering a bit, I feel like I am not in a real world. Earlier I I used to be ok in between, but now I never get ok. I do not feel emotions, never get sexually aroused. Two things I need to know, 1)- do I love her. 02)- What should I do.

Akash, you seem to be suffering from guilt and low self esteem. You have mixed up your guilty feelings with masturbation and that has caused you to suffer from anxiety and depression. You seem to be a very sincere and sensitive person. Kindly get a few things cleared in your mind. Most if not all teenagers of your age take to masturbation and fantasizing since you do not have a partner with whom you can share your sexual desires. Masturbation is the only way to let out your sexual desires which is normal. Watching porn is not desirable, but you have not in anyway harmed your relationship with your girl friend by doing it. Thoughts always come to everyone's mind-sometimes good, sometimes bad, but so far as you do not misuse them and harm yourself and others, they are benign. You need not feel guilty. Your feelings for your lover are pure and you are a morally good person as you say. Go ahead removing all negative thoughts. You are unnecessarily blaming yourself for doing nothing wrong. You need not change nor follow others, let them be what they are, you stick to your morals. Good luck.

Eat a light diet - eat more of fruits and salads, avoid fried and oily foods. Drink a lot of water and exercise daily for 45mins-1hr. This will make you more active, alert and help you concentrate. Write your GOAL on a sheet of paper and put it where it is always visible. Memory is related to understanding -Therefore, 1. Always emphasize comprehension (understanding the topic) rather than cramming. 2. Divide task into smaller chunks - make points - ask your self the basic questions - What was there in the topic, Who did what , When, Where, Why and How? If you are able to answer these questions , you will generally remember it for long. 3. Revise the points orally before sleeping. 4. Keep yourself well hydrated- have water before sitting down to study. 5. Stop studying if you feel you can't understand- Take a short break for 10 mins, have a glass of water, stretch and get back to studying Set your targets for the next day before sleeping - and give yourself a suggestion that you are fresh after 6 hours of sleep.

Around 1 year age children generally speak few simple words. Communication delays must be addressed at early ages for better results. Speech pathologist can guide you reg. Intensive speech language stimulation. Any neuro motor problems must be ruled out. Seek professional help if there is absolutely no speech development yet.

5 Ways to Fight Depression If you feel depressed, it's best to do something about it — depression doesn't just go away on its own. In addition to getting help from a doctor or therapist, here are 5 things you can do to feel better. And if these are not useful you need antidepressants 1. Exercise. Take a 15- to 30-minute brisk walk every day — or dance, jog, or bike if you prefer. People who are depressed may not feel much like being active. In addition to getting aerobic exercise, some yoga poses can help relieve feelings of depression. Two other aspects of yoga — breathing exercises and meditation — can also help people with depression feel better. 2. Nurture yourself with good nutrition. Depression can affect appetite. One person may not feel like eating at all, but another might overeat.. Proper nutrition can influence a person's mood and energy. So eat plenty of fruits and vegetables and get regular meals (even if you don't feel hungry, try to eat something light, like a piece of fruit, to keep you going). 3. Identify troubles, but don't dwell on them. Try to identify any situations that have contributed to your depression. When you know what's got you feeling blue and why, talk about it with a caring friend. Talking is a way to release the feelings and to receive some understanding. 4. Express yourself. With depression, a person's creativity and sense of fun may seem blocked. Exercise your imagination (painting, drawing, doodling, sewing, writing, dancing, composing music, etc.) and you not only get those creative juices flowing, you also loosen up some positive emotions. Take time to play with a friend or a pet, or do something fun for yourself. Find something to laugh about — a funny movie, perhaps. Laughter helps lighten your mood. 5. Try to notice good things. Depression affects a person's thoughts, making everything seem dismal, negative, and hopeless. If depression has you noticing only the negative, make an effort to notice the good things in life. Try to notice one thing, then try to think of one more. Consider your strengths, gifts, or blessings. Most of all, don't forget to be patient with yourself.

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.

Hi I want to discuss this issue with real seriousness that my friend Rene has been suffering for quite a long, long time. It's actually very agonizing when you notice you are different from the others and yet you have to deal with it as you have been suggested by your elders that it will be okay when you are 18. But that okay never happened. Being his childhood friend, he shared everything with me and so I came to know that he has been suffering from micropenis syndrome all throughout his life. His hormonal changes were bit late too. His voice started breaking at 15 years while he started growing beard at late 17. Most importantly his penis never grew after 8 years or nine years. Is there any treatment for this type of medical problems. Now he is 19 and doing engineering and I feel it's high time to see a doctor. I would be highly grateful if you could provide with me some informations regarding this because its really a grave situation for me and my friend. Every one at his age is having girlfriends and he is scared of getting into any type of relationships. Sometimes a person need someone more than a friend but he is too scared and embarrassed with his own self. He have been bullied quite a lot in school. Recently it's hitting him really bad. He feels depressed whenever we, our friends start talking about our lives, our future. It's really hard for him to swim through the awkwardness of his own life. Please look into the matter. I would highly appreciate your views.

Dear lybrate user, thank you for the detailed information. I really appreciate the love and care you have for your friend. I think you both are unnecessarily worried. His voice started breaking at 15 and he started growing beard at the age of 17 - then it is perfectly normal. Some people have early physical changes - at the age of 12 -13 some have late at 16 - 17. His growth will depend on his genes. Do not compare him with you or any of your friends. If at all, look into his family history - enquire about his father, uncles, brothers - at what age did they started showing physical signs of sexual maturity and then you will understand that, probably they all have matured at the same age. And now at the age of 19, if his voice and beard is like any other boy, there is nothing to worry about. Now regarding the micropenis syndrome - you both need to understand that men have penis in different sizes (like women have breasts in different sizes) and you need not worry so much about his small size. Penis size increases automatically on sexual arousal. I will strongly recommend you both to see a sexologist. You both need more sex education which will include human anatomy. Please do not feel shy and please consult a renowned sexologist, who will give you more knowledge about your bodies and sex. Worrying about it all the time, will damage your friend's self confidence. You both consult a sexologist so that you both can gain more knowledge and support each other. All the best.

Taking spicy drink in the morning does not make any sense. Instead take lemon honey, then drink 2 glasses of plain water, eat a banana and head for gym. Drink again water, eat breakfast after gym. Never drink fruit juice, but eat equivalent fruits. Take heavy carbohydrates in breakfast, light lunch and high protein but light dinner.

Obviously, you are very depressed to contemplate death. In fact, I think that you have an anger related depression and it may have its roots somewhere in early childhood. You must talk to your parents to find out if there was anything that happened in your infancy, including the prenatal stage, which may have contributed to this depression. You may visit a counselor along with your parents and discuss the depression and follow a treatment plan, immediately. That person will certainly want you to consult a psychiatrist to introduce you to medication. I think that this is an urgent thing to do. It is very important to maintain working with the counselor for a long term, which is essential to your recovery. In the meantime, do as much as is permissible of the following: You must be active and work towards your reformation. Many lifestyle changes need to be made to progress away for the condition. When you are depressed, you will feel lazy though I would like to call it lethargy. There is an inertia and lack of energy to even think, let alone act. You are required to literally do the opposite of what you feel like doing. Depression makes you want to withdraw, lie down, sleep, become lethargic, slow down, make you too lazy to even think etc. So when I suggested doing the opposite, 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, eat more of proteins, nuts, fruits, and vegetables, 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. The 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. Please continue the medication and only under doctor's orders should you change them.

It is your psychological feeling. Masturbation is a healthy habit. It is not at all caused for erectile dysfunction. But after masturbation there is no chance of erection. If we want to enjoy to see your erection, then stop masturbation one week then erection starts. Masturbation and continuous erection both are not possible. First you stop masturbation. Then erection starts. There is now mistake of masturbation. But when press severely then normal erection stops. You need to press again. So why you worry. Better to stop masturbation. Of if you unable then continue. Ok.

If you are an occasional smoker - with public messages, health awareness programs and your own doctors advice, you can quit. If you are a regular smoker, motivational therapy with a trained psychotherapist or a psychiatrist and enormous will power will help you quit. If you are a diseased smoker, consult a de addiction psychiatrist at the earliest. He may give you anti-smoking medications and de addiction treatment.

5 signs that you or your loved one may have bipolar disorder

DPM, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Mumbai
5 signs that you or your loved one may have bipolar disorder

Bipolar disorder is a condition where the patient may go through certain periods of extreme happiness and joy which is known as mania. On the other hand, there may be other periods where the patient may be extremely sad and depressed and even suicidal.

In some individuals, these phases may last quite long whereas, in others, they may change very quickly. However, there are certain common symptoms displayed by patients with bipolar disorder. Let's look at a few of them.

  • Feeling extremely happy, to the point of being careless - Certain patients, at the onset of bipolar disorder, will feel extremely happy and have their sense of judgment hampered. When patients feel very elated without proper context, or for very small reasons, it could be an indication that the person is experiencing mania.
  • Feeling extremely depressed - Similarly, on the other end of the spectrum, if a person feels extremely depressed without an appropriate reason, it may be due to bipolar disorder. Also, the severity of depression and the length of time for which a person experiences it is also an indicator of the condition.
  • Lack of interest in activities which formerly interested you - You may suddenly lose interest in an activity that genuinely interested you earlier. This may include your profession or hobbies.
  • Loss of appetite during the depression phases - During the phases of depression or sadness, which may sometimes last for months, a person may rapidly lose weight due to lack of interest in food. Even for patients who have shorter cycles of changes lasting for only a few weeks, this will be noticeable.
  • Extreme restlessness and lack of sleep during the manic phases - When the person enters a manic or happy cycle, it may trigger over enthusiasm, restlessness and lack of sleep. This, like the depression phase, will also vary from patient to patient and may continue for the entire duration of the phase. A jump from a depression cycle into this phase will be definitely noticed by others.


If a few of these symptoms are detected, then the patient should be taken to a mental health professional for appropriate treatment as soon as possible.

'Consult'.
