I am 24 years old girl and I am in love with a 56 years old married man. He respects my feelings and tries his best to keep me happy but he cannot leave his wife and child and even I can't ask him to do so since it would be a sin from my side. But it hurts me a lot as it feels like I cannot get him completely even when are together holding each other. I really love him and I really love all his wrinkles and dry skin, I just can't think of anybody else. I want to adjust and be happy with all that he tries to give me because I know he really tries, he really cares for me, for my feelings and my honesty towards him. Please help me to adjust myself and control my extra desires. I lost my both the parents at the age of 11 so I have seen the world and this is the reason I know nobody can love me the way he does. I don't want to hurt him.

You are into a relationship without a future. It is common for a person with deprived childhood to attach with any possible source of comfort and affection. But, such a relationship is usually not acceptable to the society. Also, the wife and child of the person with whom you are in relationship will be in angst and perhaps rightly. You will definitely get a right match for yourself someday. Like you, there may be several good boys in need of love. You just need to look out into the world around you. The first thing I will suggest, is to take time off this relationship for few days to think clearly. You should be able to get a solution yourself.

I am glad that you are seeking help online. Thank you for the brief description of your problem and the fact that you are having bipolar disorder for the last 4 years. I agree that medications can be very helpful however you are seeking non medication methods to treat your problems. I am unaware of any foods that can help with your mood stabilization however many methods at psychotherapy can be helpful. If you know the difference between your symptoms and your true self i.e. Self assessment and mindfulness can be helpful. Also educating your family and friends who are near and dear about your illness and involving them in treatment when possible is helpful. Working on healthy lifestyle choices is also helpful. Also, although a combination of these may be helpful, individual treatments may be all that you need or a combination of a few of them. I advise you to consult a psychiatrist or a psychologist for further care.

You may have sinusitis frontal or maxillary or it could be error of refraction of vision so get your eye-site checked of for correction of vision if there is any. Do warm saline gargle regularly and have homemade freshly prepared lemon juices which id very rich in vitamin c thereby increasing your body autoimmunity which prevents infection including viral infection. Have plenty of water by mouth. Go for regular morning walk followed by free hand exercise. It will be alright.

Kindly consult a psychiatrist and get your stress evaluated. Stress is the feeling of being under too much mental or emotional pressure. Pressure turns into stress when you feel unable to cope. People have different ways of reacting to stress, so a situation that feels stressful to one person may be motivating to someone else. Many of life’s demands can cause stress, particularly work, relationships and money problems. And, when you feel stressed, it can get in the way of sorting out these demands, or can even affect everything you do. Stress can affect how you feel, think, behave and how your body works. In fact, common signs of stress include sleeping problems, sweating, loss of appetite and difficulty concentrating. You may feel anxious, irritable or low in self esteem, and you may have racing thoughts, worry constantly or go over things in your head. You may notice that you lose your temper more easily, drink more or act unreasonably. You may also experience headaches, muscle tension or pain, or dizziness. Stress causes a surge of hormones in your body. These stress hormones are released to enable you to deal with pressures or threats – the so-called "fight or flight" response. Once the pressure or threat has passed, your stress hormone levels will usually return to normal. However, if you're constantly under stress, these hormones will remain in your body, leading to the symptoms of stress.

Dear lybrate user it's really difficult to deal with this constant feelings of self doubt, worry, tension etc. It can really disturb your daily life style. It's good you have asked for solution because this shows that you are ready to bring change in your life style. You can do one thing that sit in a comfortable place, you may take 3 deep breaths and start praying to almighty about your situation. This may help you to relax and reflect upon your and then take pen and paper and you may try noting those thoughts and feelings as they come, without pausing. Write as much as you can and without worrying about the language or words you used. You just need to pour out your feelings. After finishing you may pray for peace. When you are in a relaxed state you may try to read that note and you may get the answers to your disturbing thoughts. Try out this and give your feedback. Take care.

Hi I am taking bupron sr 150 and cognisules for depression. Does it have any side effect? how long I need to take this medicine?

DNB (PSYCHIATRY), DPM, MBBS,
Psychiatrist, Gurgaon
Bupropion can cause rise in blood pressure, so you need to monitor your bp. In higher doses or in those individuals who have history of fits, it can precipitate fits. Generally duration of treatment during first episode of depression is 6months but it can vary.

A boy is so obssesed and desperate that he always texts me that too from untraceable company numbers. I donno how he pulls out my personal contact numbers. I complained to the police and he was warned twice to stop but his behaviour continues. I have done everything to make him understand i' m not interested in him. At times, I get scared what should I do to stop him before his behaviour gets extreme & tries to harm me in some way?

Dear , ignorance is the only way in this juncture. You complained to the police and he was warned twice. The third time you complain surely he will go to jail. Do it. He will not do anything. He is doing all these because he knows that you fears him or his future activities against you. Don' t worry. Go ahead, of course with the help of adults in your family. Take care.

Dear user, Anxiety disorders are a category of mental disorders characterized by feelings of anxiety and fear, where anxiety is a worry about future events and fear is a reaction to current events. These feelings may cause physical symptoms, such as a racing heart and shakiness. There are a number of anxiety disorders: including generalized anxiety disorder, a specific phobia, social anxiety disorder, separation anxiety disorder, agoraphobia, and panic disorder among others. While each has its own characteristics and symptoms, they all include symptoms of anxiety. Anxiety medicines alone cannot cure anxiety disorders mainly because medicines do not alter behavior. Behavior change and Continuous practice of the changed behavior cure anxiety. I suggest anxiety education, progressive counseling and progressive psychotherapy. I assure you complete cure. I need to know more about your anxiety so that I will be able to diagnose it properly and provide you tips to overcome and manage your anxiety. Take care.

I got addicted to smoking since last three years. I can't resist it. What should I do get off of it? Please suggest me.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
The urge to discontinue is hampered by many factors but the worst of them is the conditioning. In fact these conditions can exist all through the day unlike other addictions. But your desire to want to stop is the most important factor. It is important to find out about the ill-effects of smoking to have a reason that alarms you about continuing in the habit. The information is really scary but true. The nicotine in tobacco smoke stimulates the heart beat to raise the blood pressure in no time at all. So you must avoid it like the plague: it is just very bad medicine for you. In fact it is highly toxic too. You will need to stop smoking or consuming any tobacco related items with immediate effect. You should start vigorous exercises, gradually increasing it over a period of time. Do deep breathing exercises every time you feel like smoking (try Yoga), and replace the oral urge with some healthy food substitute to satiate the need. You may also take hard candy or chewing gum. If the urge is too strong, then use nicotine chewing gum or nicotine patches, for a little while until the smoking drive reduces, substantially. You may also join Smokers Anonymous in your city where the support is really extraordinary for like-minded people who are also in the same situation. Keep yourself occupied or engaged with interesting activities during the times when it is most tempting. Keep the company of non-smokers for some time i.e. at least for the first 21 days. Above all announce it to everyone that you have quit smoking. Here’s a piece of very good advice: even if you accidentally/willfully take a cigarette, it is not the end of the world – you can start the cessation all over again. You must persevere with the best support until you defeat this addiction. Counseling is very useful in the initial stages and when temptations are at their highest.

Pulmonologist/Chest specialist - No Smoking question. I am 34 year old male. I smoke around 10-15 cigarettes in a day. I took Champix 1 mg a day and quit smoking but after stopping the medicine smoking starts again. Now I am taking 1 mg twice a day. What is the normal dosage. Should it be 1 mg once a day or twice a day? How long should be the duration of treatment?

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Start taking the tablets one week before the quit date. The aim is to build up the dose so your body gets used to the medicine before the quit date. The usual advice is to start with 0.5 mg daily for the first three days. Then 0.5 mg twice daily on days four to seven. Then, 1 mg twice daily for 11 weeks. Take each dose with a full glass of water, preferably after eating. So, ideally, after breakfast and after your evening meal.

Often anxiety and depression go hand in hand. You need to seek some counseling help and if the person feels you need to meet with a doctor kindly do so with all cooperation. 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.

Smoking can stimulate you and raise your BP immediately: it is best you give it up. But this sudden development may have something to do with stress related to something you are angry about. If you know what that is you can deal with it but if you don't then meet with a counselor and sort that out for instant relief. In the meantime kindly implement some of these suggestions: 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.

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. Take care.
