Depression is a treatable illness. Experiencing suicidal thoughts and negative thoughts during depression is common. However ending your life is not a solution to any problem. And since depression is treatable. You should consult a psychiatrist and Start treatment.

I'M 20 years old. I'M in a relationship from past 1.5 years. Everything was alright. My boyfriend used to smoke cannabis a lot n only hang out with his friends from morning till late nights. But after my constant practices he left everything. N was only with me. My happiness was everything for him. But from a week now he started smoking cannabis. N doesn't gives m any attention. Whenever I tried talking to him it ended up only with Me crying over n over again. He shows as if nothing affects him. He is facing some financial problem due to his betting habit in i-pill. He asked me for some money few days back but I wasn't able to help. And he's facing some problem at home also. Today I had talked to him he said he's bored of me. Then he said he is not bored. He's bored of his own life. I asked around 1000 times then he said he is not happy with me because of my short temper. And also because m not supporting him not giving him money. But he also says he loves me a lot despite of knowing my past because I had told him all about my past. But whatever he says he does only one thing ie ignoring me. And whenever he's out with his friends n that happens everyday now from 1 week. No matter how many Times 100-200 I call him he switches off his phn ignores me shows as if nothing matters to him only his friends are imp to him. So today I didn't talk to him after he said he's not happy. Wot should I do. I'M vry emotional m crying from almost a week now.Please tell sir.

Your friend had addiction and he needs progessional help regarding his behavior. He needs money for his drugs and he will do anything to get the money. He knows that you have strong feelings for him so he will exploit it and try different ways so that you will give him money. Also we all have past. You may have told him about your past. Please do not let him use that information to ruine your future. It doesn't matter what is your past. You can't change it. Let that doesn't stop you from a bright future. You are very young. I would suggest you to focus on your studies and first be financially as well as emotionally independent. I do understand that you have strong feelings for your boyfriend. At this age the hormones and chemicals have huge influence on you. Please do not let that influemce your future. We all have past. We can't do anything about our past. You can't let your past ruine your future. About your boyfriend. He do need help and for anyone to be able to help him first he needs to except that he has a problem and secondly he needs to be willing to take help. Unless he is willing to receive help no one can help him. So please be wise and start thinking about what is right for you. I do hope you are open to understand what I am saying. If you want to talk about how you could bring some major changes feel free to talk to me. Wishing you very best please do take good care of yourself.

I forget always. Like my mobile in cab, name of people, story of movie which I have seen 2-3 times and forgets many trivial things. I also feel drowsy all the day and can take deep sleep any time.

General Physician,
Feeling drowsy and sleepy can be due to hypothyroidism and need check up .7 Ways to Remember Anything Research-based strategies to boost your memory and keep it strong 7 Strategies for Remembering 1.Become interested in what you're learning. We're all better remembering what interests us. Few people, for example, have a difficult time remembering the names of people they find attractive. If you're not intrinsically interested in what you're learning or trying to remember, you must find a way to become so. 2.Find a way to leverage your visual memory. You'll be surprised by how much more this will enable you to remember. For example, imagine you're at a party and are introduced to five people in quick succession. How can you quickly memorize their names? Pick out a single defining visual characteristic of each person and connect it to a visual representation of their name, preferably through an action of some kind. Remember: Memory is predominantly visual. 3.Create a mental memory tree. If you're trying to memorize a large number of facts, find a way to relate them in your mind visually with a memory tree. Construct big branches first, then leaves. Branches and leaves should carry labels that are personally meaningful to you in some way, and the organization of the facts ("leaves") should be logical. 4.Associate what you're trying to learn with what you already know. It seems the more mental connections we have to a piece of information, the more successful we'll be in remembering it. This is why using mnemonics. Write out the items to be memorized over and over and over. 5.When reading for retention, summarize each paragraph in the margin. This requires you to think about what you're reading, recycle it, and teach it to yourself again. Even take the concepts you're learning and reason forward with them; apply them to imagined novel situations, which creates more neural connections to reinforce the memory. 6.Do most of your studying in the afternoon. Though you may identify yourself as a "morning person" or "evening person" at least one Study. Suggests your ability to memorize isn't influenced as much by what time of day you perceive yourself to be most alert but by the time of day you actually study—afternoon appearing to be the best. 7.Get adequate sleep to consolidate and retain memories. Not just at night after you've studied but the day, you study as well. Far better to do this than to stay up cramming all night for an exam.

Dear lybrate user. 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.

For a friend with depression here are the good, bad and ugly advice you could give:

GOOD: Get help from a professional. I am here to support you.

BAD: Many others face bigger problems in life and are not depressed. Be confident.

UGLY: Don't be a weak hearted person. Don't act like this purposefully.

My friend is getting angry very easily how can we treat his mood disorder by ourselves.

We are parents to a 14 year old daughter and 11 year old son. I am in a transferable job and the family moves with me. Our daughter started her periods when she was 9.5 years.It was the time that she stated being physically abusive towards her mother without any reason or remorse. In the last 3-4 years her behavior towards her parents, sibling has worsened. In our last relocation 3 years back, she had problems in making friends at school for which we sought professional counselling, got her enrolled in sports and things were a little better for a few days.We also took homeopathic treatment to treat the aggression in her. One day we learnt that she has infatuation for a 17 year old boy at the sports academy. The boy was suggesting sexual advances towards her as we could gather from her personal diary. We could intervene and resolve the issue. We have also been meeting the school counseller off and on. During this time she was making use of the mobile phone which we had kept for use at home ( in place for the regular landline). Last year she pestered and forced her to buy her a smartphone.Our problems aggravated manifold after we bought the smartphone. Her attention towards her studies nosedived despite taking extra tuitions. She would throw her clothes, towels etc on floor after use and listen to music on the cell all the time.Her sleep wake cycle is also abnormal. She would get up at 12 PM on holidays. For last 6 months she is friends with a 17 year old boy of her school and has been chatting with him on FB/whattsapp. The boy is making sexual advances towards her while in the school( as we could understand from her phone). We were called one day in the school to inform that she has been bunking her classes. All this while we have been very supportive /sympathetic towards our child. The teachers have suggested that we take the smartphone back from her. But her behavior is so violent and abnormal that we do not know to head in which direction.

You have not only described the problem well but most of what you have done has been good so far. Let me explain what your child is going through. She has entered adolescence earlier by nearly 4 years. An unprepared child has to face the onset of puberty at a much earlier time and further she may not have had all her childhood milestones met adequately because her childhood has been cramped by those 4 years. Secondly, there will be a spurt in the production of the male sex hormone, testosterone, which has a duration of two years. Due to this chemical alone there are three identified features that present itself over which she has no control: she will be sexually active, aggressive and rebellious, and she will have acne and pimple problems. Then if she has unresolved childhood issues, they will compound the situation and fuel her uncontrolled behavior. Please remember that she herself may not be aware of all this. Now what to do? You parents need to become her best friend i.E. You must always ally with her and find the path of least resistance. Communication must always be open and favorable. The moment she hides things and does not communicate with you or you withdraw it, there is serious danger. Avoid all types of confrontations and discus your concerns with her. Indulge in her and make home a beautiful place for her to want to be in. Sports and games will expend a lot of the aggression and energy. Go with her and encourage her to participate. Yes, in all this she will get into relationships, which is not the crime. It would be grave failure on your part as parents to have not prepared her with sex education and strong morals that she could exercise, if they were present. Boys are also driven by these hormones and will want sex and put her under pressure to give sex in exchange for the friendship. You have to handle this very carefully, gently and always with abundant love. Some practical things to do: ask the teacher to confiscate the Smartphone. It is better if the school acts on this, than if you did ? again remember to follow the path of least resistance with her from your side. Involve the counselor as much as possible without disgracing her. Now this is very important: never give her anything without there being some negotiations ? barter with her, you give her something in return for some compliance from her. If you can befriend her close companions, especially her peers, you can reach her through them to influence her positively but it has to be done with strict confidence. On holidays let her sleep late, no harm in that. If she is going through a spurt in her growth hormone, she will feel unduly exhausted. Keep in touch with her school authorities always. Also remember that her lack of control over her behavior is a sign that she has a lot of impulses to contend with. I am alluding to this so that you should never provoke inadvertently that she impulsively does something serious to her life just to spite you! Your frequent transfers don?t help much either but then what can be done, if your work is shaped like that! The female child needs and wants a lot of attention from the male parent. Please be there for her at all times and let her know that too.

I am having Good amount of anxiety or Ocd. Doctor,I wamt to ask that if I practise pranayama or anulom vinolom on a regular basis can it bring my ocd to a nominal level or should I go to a clinical psychologist or psychiatrist?

MBBS, MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Mumbai
Pranayama, Anulom vinolom, meditation, exercise are all beneficial to good physical and mental health. However, they are NOT treatments by themselves. At best they can be considered as adjuvants, they help to improve the patient's health and thus their condition. If you are indeed suffering from OCD, it is vital that you seek professional help by consulting a psychiatrist. With the right medication and counseling you will see relief in your symptoms.

Hi Lybrate user thanks for the query through your concern I can feel your unconditional love for that girl. You love someone its really wonder feeling you should proud of yourself that you are loving someone unconditionally its her bad luck that she is loosing you .but you cannot force any one to love or for care ,if anyhow in any type of pressure someone came then it will be for short time only ,it can be for long time only if someone comes by realising your love and importance. Relation between lovers or any couple is like bicycle and couples are like their wheels when there will be balance then it will run smoothly and when there will be any type of disturbance in any wheel it will lead to disbalance in your what you can do is to talk clearly and if she says no then you must stop any type of contact with her because you will gain nothing and your life will be like hell. Try to divert your mind involve yourself in some other activity make some new friends. May be you are thinking that you can convince her but if there will be any chance then it can be only by giving some space in your relation. Take care.

I am asking this question for my family friend who is an professor of genomic science and we'll established in her life. Her marriage was fixed with a guy whom she had 6 years long relationship and few months ago they got engaged. She is a cheerful and expressive for all her emotion. But her fiance is opposite. Shy, less talkative and uncommunicative. Inspite of this they had long relationship and suddenly another guy comes to her life with all the attributes she has in her life and she starts feeling for him. The new guy's mentality is like my friend's mentality. Both of them fell for each others and the boy proposed my friend but she denied (before her engagement) but now she thinks she is feeling a special level for the second man with whom she spends quality times. She doesn't want to hurt her fiance and his family and getting depressed.

Hi! Marrying one person and leading life forever is good instead of divorcing and marrying someone better than the partner unless the partner is cruel or fake. The same way is love also. They have already had relationship for long and then falling with another guy just because he is more better than her previous lover is really non-justice. Ask your friend if she knows in and about her previous lover character. Getting married to someone whom she know very well is good to get married. The character of shyness, not social will change after marriage. If the previous lover gets more responsibility naturally shyness and other character will change. She can change him into a perfect person if she really loved him. That means she did not love him truly. She is expecting something else from a guy. With regards, Psy. MSV.

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 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.

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.
