Hi, Many people come across a dream that has some kind of perversion in it. Some even have actual sexual release through those dreams. Sexual dreams may be a means to compensate for what is lacking in real life. Dreams of sexual nature are common among people of all age groups and one should learn to deal with them rather than feel guilty. The theme of a dream does not matter. As far as the dream is not interfering with daily life and one is sleeping well, the content of the dream should not be given any importance. To conclude, interpretation of dreams is important to understand what they are telling you. Identifying the theme is the first step towards this. Correlating the theme to your life in general or a particular event of your life will help in understanding the dream better. Dreams should not be taken at face value—try to look at their symbolic meaning. To remember the dreams and to help interpret them better, it is advised to write down your dreams in a journal and then consult with a psychologist All the best.

To solve yoru sleep problem do the following: In your case particularly, do not sleep during the day; don’t even lie down. Go for regular exercise (breathing through your nostrils only) at a fixed time (at about 6 am) every day, whether you sleep or not. You must develop this habit of sleeping by 10 pm latest every night and wake up at a uniform time by 6 am every morning, even if you do not get sleep. If you do not get sleep, just lie down and if you have a bed lamp (or you could get one) lie down and read something light but not exciting. Your eyes will tire and you will fall asleep. If you like you may also put on light and soft music with the sleep function on. Depending on whether you are a visual or auditory person, you may watch TV in a lying down position until you feel sleepy. Have a warm bath before going to bed (for some people a cold bath at night seems to induce sleep! If you are one of them, please do so). Place the head side of your bed in a North-South position. The room must be as dark as possible and there should be no electronic items that give off even a light LED glow. There must be ample ventilation in the room. Avoid strong odors, except lavender, on your body or in the room, or on your sheets and clothes. There should not be any live plants in your bedroom. Sleep with the lightest of clothes or without any clothing. When lying down to sleep, lie down on your left ear as much as possible. Do not sleep directly under an overhead fan. You must eat a good breakfast, a fairly light lunch, and an early dinner, which should be a very light meal. Whatever you eat in the other meals, have only a pure carbohydrate meal at night with any vegetables, and preferably before 8 pm. Do not drink much liquids after or near about dinner time. When lying down to sleep you may use the 4-7-8 breathing pattern of sleep inducement i.e. Breathe in for four counts through your nostril only, hold for 7 counts, and exhale with a whoosh sound, through your mouth only, for 8 counts. Repeat this four times in the morning and just before you sleep at night. If you know Emotional Freedom Technique or EFT (check this out either on YouTube or Google), then please practice this too for sleep induction. Self-hypnosis and slow relaxation techniques, at night will be tremendously useful. Acupuncture or acupressure will both be very useful too. Pray last thing at night before you sleep. For 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. 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.

Side Effects of Cannabis on Mental Health

M.D Psychiatry , MBBS

Side Effects of Cannabis on Mental Health

Cananbis Sativa is a hemp plant, which creates a variety of drugs including marijuana. This plant has an active ingredient known as THC that makes a person feel high upon ingestion. The compounds of this ingredient can also affect the way a person's body functions. Usually, high doses of this can cause potentially life threatening effects on the person. It is mostly ingested in the form of dried leaves, flowers, stems and seeds. People also mix it in vapourisers, or brew it as tea. It may also be baked as cookies.

While the physical side effects are many, smoking or ingesting this substance can also lead to many mental side effects. Let us find out more:

  • Physical Side Effects: As per various medical studies, the inhalation or ingestion of Cannabis can take your heart rate to an increased level of two times its normal rate. This state can last up to three hours. Also, people who have had very high doses or suffer from this increased heart rate for a prolonged period may die due to a sudden cardiac arrest. Dizziness and shallow breathing are also a part of the side effects while dilated pupils and red eyes may also be seen. Further, a sudden spike in one's appetite and a dry mouth are some of the other side effects.
  • Cravings: A person who has ingested Cannabis may experience many side effects that are on the mental and emotional side. The more mild side effects include the experience of cravings for certain types of food, as well as an increase in one's appetite where the person does not manage to keep track of what he or she is eating, and in what quantity. Also, sleeplessness and irritability may set in.
  • Mind and Mood Changes: After Cannabis ingestion, the person may feel extremely happy or extremely sad. Either which ways, the patient will feel a sense of detachment as far as reality goes. While he or she may not be acutely aware of the same, the people around the patient will be able to sense this with the words and actions of the person. The patient may also experience a distorted sense of time and motion, while depression and anxiety may also set in with prolonged abuse of this drug. Short term memory impairment may also take place, which can lead to forgetfulness regarding important details. Also, random thinking and strange fears may begin to plague the person in question.

I am 19 years old, I am in collage and living out of my home town for study purpose, Actually I am going through hard of my life, Due to some reasons my best friend and I, had some trust issues, we don't talk much now, my sister is also my best friend but recently we had huge fights and she also trusts me less than before, I feel lonely I often cry, I can't concentrate on studies or any other work, I am mentally disturbed too much, I want our brother sister relation back as it was before, I can't stop thinking about it. Please I need help from a doctor to be mentally healthy.

Brother sister relation is like Tom and Jerry cartoon .They always fight with each other but love each other as well. So as far as fight is concern then don’t be so frustrated as you are now. The Best way to solve this problem is TALK WITH YOUR SISTER.In the same way what you have written here. Just talk once and tell her what’s your condition to her and I am sure this will sort within some minute. Just talk to her .Best o luck.

Hello lybrate-user, it is quite human and normal to feel possessive about your family members because you love and care for them. And I sense that you too want their love, acceptance and support from them. 1. However it is important to remember our boundaries with everyone including family members so that the relationship has breathing space and all members are able to" grow together" and find their own individual space in this world. In psychology we call it the human need for individuality and togetherness. 2. When a person gets both kind of space in life, they feel connected, safe, secure, Confident and liberated. This is very important for all people to give and take from each other. 3. If a person doesn’t get the space to experiment and do things in their own way, their individual personal growth stops and high possibilities of dysfunctional living ie. Arguments, misunderstanding, poor physical and mental health. 4. Thus I suggest that you give your family members the space to branch out and grow in different ways which might be their dream. 5. Trusting them and being patient with them is important. Doing their own thing doesn't mean that they don't like you or will forget you. This is a very innate need and they will function best when they get space and also enjoy some emotional closeness with each other. 6. While they are doing their own thing, I suggest that you start looking into your own life and pick up a lost hobby, catch up with friends or whatever you think you didn't have time for and had sacrificed for the sake of your family. This way every person will have space and support of each other.

Hi lybrate-user, thats very sad to hear but don't lose hope. A professional can help you in this. I suggest you to take her to a professional Counselling will help a lot. Meanwhile: You need to speak to her very wisely. Explain the pros and cons if she listens to you, if not then ask to do the same to someone who, she trust the most, can be a friend or family. Ask her to practice deep breathing. She must eat healthy (leafy vegetables, citrus fruits, walnuts etc.) and on time. A good night sleep is must. No to coffee. No to alcohol. Can have dark chocolate instead. Take her out in greenery without your phones. Take Care For any further query feel free to contact me Thanks, Archana Narwani.
