From few months I'm suffering from frequent mood swings. Sometimes I feel that no one (among my friend circle) cares about me and I should not interact with people to avoid these things. Sometimes I feel that all the people are selfish and would abandoned you once their purpose gets fulfilled. Please suggest me some ways to move out of this situation.

Dear lybrate user. Your thoughts are reality. You are thinking right. You came to earth alone. You live alone. Relationships and friendships are momentary. They come and go. You are alone till you are available. Accept this truth and go ahead with positive attitude. I suggest counseling. Take care.

Dear Jaimim, Weed addiction also comes under abuse and addiction. If you’re ready to stop the substance and willing to get the support you need, you can recover from addiction and abuse —no matter how bad the addiction or how powerless you feel. The first step in treating addiction is accepting that you have a problem. Confronting an addiction and accepting responsibility for your actions isn’t easy. But it’s a necessary step on the road to treatment and recovery. You should then consult a psychiatrist / psychologist who fill follow this treatment. 1. Detoxification using medicines. 2. Behavior modification with the help of therapies. 3. Counseling. 4. Medication to sustain and 5. Long term support. These given steps are essential for any addict to get effectively rid of addiction. Therefore, you need to stick to the treatment plan and cooperate with your psychiatrist / psychologist. Take care.

Best way is to go to the ex girl friend and say sorry to her for the unnatural sexual relationship. Anal sex. You are just feeling the the attachment due to sexual feelings. Once you feel and express sorry, you will start feeling better. If it doesn't help then connect me directly online or in person.

I lost somebody close last year and since then feel very depressed and prefer keeping to myself the time please help me.
You are going through grief reaction, which is normal after loss of a loved one. Time is the healer for the emotional and behavioral changes, however if your depression is severe enough to affect you in a significant manner, kindly consult a psychiatrist for short term antidepressant medication, depending on the complaints. There are stages in grief shock, denial, acceptance, bargaining, depression, resolution. If the depressed mood is very much, consult a psychiatrist and take a course of antidepressants. The recovery will be hastened.

He lost in financial status for that reason he become hopeless and escapist. Better to take the help of your elders. Or his friends. Understand the situation properly. If not possible. It is better to take him psychiatrist. Along with psychiatric medicine it is better to consult psychologist for psychological counselling. You know he is very good person. Because of his mental condition. He disturbed and suspect to you. In this stage you do not develop negative thoughts. Understand his mental status is not good. If he reject the medicine then consult psychologist. It is not done only by you. Better to take his or your elders help. It is always best. Or request him or talk like a friend when he is good mood. If he scolds you do not bother wait for right time. You have chance to win one day. Upto that wait. God will helps to you. Do not develop depression status. Remaining time you better to develop a very good friendly relations in office environment. Ok all the best.

Why different place of body having random pain like running from one place ot another everyday?

Why different place of body having random pain like running from one place ot another everyday?
Hi there ~ what you describe seems to be a very classic case of radiating pain or vague bodily aches and pains that are related to a chronic medical condition. I hope you have yourself checked for diabetes, hypertension and other chronic medical condition. If you are a healthy individual with such pains somatization disorder may be a valuable diagnosis which could give you good relief from your symptoms in a quick and effective way. You will need to consult a neuropsychiatrist in that case to get your medications prescribed. Hope this helps. Take care and have a lovely day!

You need to think whether your mind is occupied with any other thoughts which have a disturbing outcome according to your imagination. It could be that you are thinking about a poor result and its consequences. Enjoy the journey of hard work in studying. Keep on telling yourself let me give the best try, at least I will have the satisfaction of trying.

Alcohol And Its Effect On Sexual Life

BUMS ( Mumbai ),H.E.S(pune),
General Physician, Mumbai
Alcohol And Its Effect On Sexual Life

Excess of anything is never healthy and the same applies in the case of alcohol. Alcohol experts have come to a conclusion that drinking too much alcohol reduces affects negatively in both the genders.

Alcohol Myth Busted

Since time immemorial, people have considered alcohol to be an aphrodisiac. However, this myth has been busted time and again by the side effects of excessive alcohol. On the contrary, alcohol is known to induce depression after consumption.

Alcohol, if consumed in unnatural quantity over a period of time can turn conditions like 'brewer's droop', which otherwise might be temporary into permanent impotence. Alcohol addiction is a cardinal sin for couples planning on having a baby. Women, whose bodies are much more sensitive and complex than a man's body, react greatly to even a small quantity of alcohol. Even government's guidelines on low-risk alcohol consumption unit do not guarantee no harm, and people are known to have taken much longer time to get pregnant and irregularity in their menstrual cycles even after abiding by the government's guidelines.

What Is Moderation?

No one is asking you to completely cut down on alcohol. But moderation should then be a religion for all the drinkers. Moderate drinking includes no more than 2 drinks per day (US. Centre for Disease Control and Prevention). The explanation is that your liver can act on alcohol at one standard size drink an hour, so heavy drinking means that too much alcohol for the liver to handle and hence unhealthy toxins are released in the body having an adverse effect on the sex life.

Some of the more common problems caused by alcohol in a couple's sex life are:

  • Long-term erectile dysfunction: The most common of all the problems, erectile dysfunction can most commonly be attributed to heavy drinking. 60% of men who are alcohol addicts are known to be suffering from loss of sexual appetite.
  • Ruined Families and relationships: Alcohol can be considered one of the biggest inducers of divorce among couples. It makes people less caring and more and more involved in their drinking antics. 90% of domestic violence incidents include alcohol.
  • Side effects of smoking: Drinking is usually accompanied by cigarettes and a cocktail of these two substances can be a deadly weapon against your sanity. For men below 40, erectile dysfunction primarily happens because of excessive smoking.
  • STDs: Alcohol consumption helps people shed their inhibition and cases of unprotected sex increases. It increases your chances of actually getting an STD. 50% of all impromptu sexual encounters happen in the presence of alcohol and 60% STD spread when alcohol is also in the picture. Young adults who consume alcohol at an alarming rate are 7 times more likely to indulge in unprotected sexual intercourse.

Hence, we see that alcohol addiction does not compliment healthy sex life and therefore people must toe in line at the right time to ensure the wellbeing of their lifestyle and sexual activities.

Dear doctor we have a patient of schizophrenia having auditory hallucinations and is under medication from Aiims Delhi. I have come to know through a scholarly article that increasing estrogen hormone especially estradiol b17 can reduce symptoms substantially. You are requested to advise medicine and the method of increasing the hormone. We will be highly obliged and thankful to you.

MBBS, MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Chennai
Well schizophrenia is a serious psychiatric illness which has lead to lot of research in the treatment. Many vitamin supplements, hormonal therapies and natural ingredients have been tried and have shown positive results but they are only in the preliminary stage. Regarding using oestrogen supplements, the results have not produced similar results in clinical practice and oestrogen supplements have many side effects to tolerate with it too. My kind advice to you is to stop surfing Internet which can mislead you. Believe your psychiatrist who can help you. Important point to note is that schizophrenia as of now is a disorder which can only kept under control and not cured and we have come across many clients with refractory auditory hallucinations even after multiple treatments. Well schizophrenia is a very complex disorder which can be very challenging at times due to the permanent neuronal changes they produce. Few tips to reduce auditory hallucinations are keeping ourself engaged, avoiding being alone and reading books and hearing to favourite music etc. Hope I was helpful. Thank you.
