Sex is a physical need of any normal adult person. You are very young and are likely to have a strong urge. What makes you think that you will have to kill this urge? if your wife is not comfortable with having sex with you or if you or she has any inhibitions towards sex, please consult a counsellor or a sexologist. Killing this urge may not be helpful for you in the long run. It will rather prove to be harmful. Instead try to understand how you both can enjoy healthy sex life and thereby strenghen your marital bond.

Hi. I am staying away from family since 4 years. I am having lot of mental issues. I am going into depression. I finds my life to be hopeless. My marriage is going to get fixed by family. My family dint accept my boyfriend. Now I am struggling to forget him. I hv no other option than leaving him since my parents hv blackmailed me that they will be no more if I won't forget him. So all these things are making my life difficult. I can't sleep at nights. Mornings I gets up and I finds I am losing everything. Kind of exhausted feeling. I am struggling with life. I am not finding happiness in life. I have no hopes no dreams. I don't know what's going to happen if I continues to be like this. I can't live like this. It's painful. I need some kind of psychiatric help or I might complete lose myself.

Good ​Morning, I understand the situation that you are in. Life is so much more worth living and you know that for a fact since you have lived your life so far, you just need to enjoy what is going on and be in the present; neither in the past nor in the future. I agree that depression and anxiety that you are experiencing are due to circumstantial reasons and I believe they will alleviate when the situation changes. Positive thinking will get you where you need to be in life. If your marriage is fixed, it might be helpful to speak with your fiancee about your feelings so that he understands. If you feel understood, it may be a good relationship. Do not discount others and idealize only one person. Marriage in INDIA is about families and not about only yourself or only your and the other. So it might be useful to count them in and take heart in the fact that the person who they have chosen for you may be the right person also. It is easier said than done. However, moving on to your symptoms, I believe you need to be on medications for a good 3-4 months and we can help you with the same. Please pay and book an appointment and we can discuss options for medication therapy for you. Look forward to hearing from you. If you need help with booking an appointment online with me on this website either text, audio or video appointment for confidential and private consultation you may do so by contacting the help desk of Lybrate.

You need to meet with a counselor immediately and if that person feels you need to meet with a doctor too, you must do so. You must cooperate with both therapies and be consistent. I suggest that you visit these professionals along with your parents because their involvement is quite critical to your recovery. If it is of recent origin, you could easily pin-point it and take care of it. But I suspect that it may have to do with something in your developmental years, or your family background. In the meantime do the following, sincerely: 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 scotching 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: find someone to love and to love you back. If you love yourself adequately, you will never do harm to yourself. Be positive always and learn to do everything possible to invest into yourself. Life is extremely precious and because the depression, which is a mood disorder, makes you feel like giving up you must still persevere. 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 everyday and learn to be contended 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. Because you are young the prognosis is good subject to your cooperation.

Good Morning ~ Male pattern balding starts very early for some and late for others, however it is usually familial and you should not be worried about hair loss. I am glad you quit smoking and I am sure you will get good results from using Mintop hair solution, even if the improvement will take time you will see good results. However you need to keep using the lotion or solution to maintain the hair growth. Also there are some definitive side effects of using Minoxidil and you should read it before you start using the solution since you are quite young now. I am sure you will have questions and I welcome any clarifications at any time. Look forward to hearing from you. If you need help with booking an appointment online with me on this website either text, audio or video appointment for confidential and private consultation you may do so by contacting the help desk of Lybrate.

This is all stress and worries of life. May be issues of married life/future marriage, you may be having insecurities and fear. Just relax. Ask yourself what bothers you? have a positive self-talk, and learn what are those things you don't like. You need to accept your self and move on. You need to take care of your lifestyle and learn to be happy. If you cant do it yourself, meet a life coach/ stress management super-specialist like me. Once you open your heart out, you will feel free and begin to fly in life. I assure you that I can manage this and help u.

I'm a 23 year male. I was good in my studies at school level. Gradually it decreased. I've never took my studies seriously, I had a confidence that even if I study a week before exams, I'd pass. During my graduation I had a breakup and to come out of it wasn't easy for me. I can't explain it in this mail but every day was like hell to me, I couldn't sleep, eat properly and what not. Slowly I've started getting out of my self pity thoughts. In these situations I thought that I wouldn't pass my xams but somehow I did. After that I've done a course but I didn't had enough confidence in me, by that time I was different than what I was in my early days. I could hardly remember or understand the concept. I couldn't think creatively, so I thought to go for another course, now i've completed that but same again. I'm out of my confidence, cannot concentrate on anything, after failing in an interview I thought that at least from now I'll prepare again but I can't even start a thing. My job profile needs creative thinking, but I cannot even think normally. Some times I feel my cognitive functions aren't normal. What should I do to get out of my situation? I need to improve the functioning of my brain. I should have confidence, passion. Should I consult a psychiatrist? Please someone suggest me a detailed answer.

lybrate-user, you began by telling about your problems with studies and how your grades/marks have lowered in recent years since you completed schooling. As I can see, much of your concerns are about how your abilities and thinking are not matching upto your expectations. You have taken different courses and did your best to keep yourself confident but it hasn't helped you much. You seem to be having greater worries about how you think and why your thoughts are not focused on any particular goal. A bad experience in a relationship also added up to your worries and distressing mental condition. A relationship usually distracts and preoccupies with attachment issues which makes life difficult to handle. These long series of negative events and circumstances have reduced your overall motivation and lead to a distressing mental state where you constantly worry about your abilities. From a clinical perspective, it would not be possible to make any valid diagnosis as of now. For that more interviewing is needed and clinical tests need to be done (psychological assessments). Many times due to repeated failures, we develop a negative attitude towards ourselves and remain in a constant state of depressed mood and low energy. In your situation, it seems you do require medical consultation. But medicines won't help you for long and may not alleviate all the problems. Negative thinking develops over time and mostly it is not a direct effect of one or two circumstances. Low confidence, self-pity thoughts, poor concentration, low motivation, lack of energy and low self esteem are some of the persistent effects of negative thought process. You also believe that you may not be having normal cognitive functions. You seem to over-think about your performance, which is impacting your life achievements. Negative thoughts result from negative beliefs about self. When we think we are unworthy then we lose the confidence to take initiatives and get biased towards seeing all negative outcomes. We don't welcome any new changes in our life cheerfully. This has happened with you that with every new goal you have set for yourself, you have gradually become hopeless with that achievement. This is mainly because you don't feel much confident towards yourself. Deep into your mind, you believe you don't deserve a positive outcome. We can say that you think in a very black-and-white mode of thought process. This implies that either things should be all good for you or all bad. There is no mid-way for you currently. You are achieving some things in your life but you don't see them as worthy to change your life altogether. Here comes the importance of understanding your own thoughts and beliefs. It is important for you to know how your long held beliefs about yourself have impacted your mental state. It is not entirely some brain chemical which is causing this distress. Body is equally effected by how we think, than being just the other way around. So for temporary benefits, you may take medicines. But for long term relief and cure, you need to see a Clinical Psychologist and take Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) which is a form of psychotherapy. CBT is a very effective therapy for long term benefits from depression and anxiety. All the Best.

Guess What: Shedding Tears while Watching Movies is NOT Awkward!

Guess What: Shedding Tears while Watching Movies is NOT Awkward!

Shedding tears while watching movies can make you feel better

We all love watching movies be it comedy, action, family dramas or emotional ones. So many of us get emotional while watching an emotional movie. But how many of us actually shed tears? many of us are too conscious or suppressive about how we feel while watching a movie with friends. While watching comedy movies makes us happier and rejuvenates, do you have an idea that crying while watching emotional/dramatic movies has an even more positive impact on us than comic laughter.

Let's see how and why?

1. Some shed tears and some don't: while watching an emotional movie, some of us get emotional and some not only get emotional but cry too. But come to think of it, if you are totally involved in an emotional movie, where a scene comes where you get emotional and you feel like crying but you don't cry, aren't you suppressing an emotion within you? it's certainly a better idea to go with the flow and cry when you feel like crying.

2. Why crying is good: now you must be thinking that i'm strong enough to not let my emotions over drive me, then why should I cry? but do you have an idea that by doing you are harming yourself. If you do not cry, that sadness will hold on to you and you will keep thinking about it but if you shed tears, it will relieve you and you will feel better and happy after some time. Suppressing any kind of emotion is bad for your mental peace. Better take it out and feel relieved. If you will keep the sadness within you, it will keep on growing.

3. Why crying is better than laughing: no one would believe that crying could be better than laughing. The duration of holding on to an emotional situation is more than a happier one. But if we let the sad emotion flow in the form of tears, the feeling of sadness will go and we will feel light and happier.

Dear lybrate-user. Nice to hear that you quit smoking. Your body starts its repair process immediately on your quitting. In your case, it should take less than 6 months for the body to completely repair your lungs provided you don't restart smoking. Take care.

Fear is a natural response to situational threats. If there is frequent response of fear without having any threats, then it is a symptom of mental illness which need to be treated by a Psychiatrist. Psychologist will help you to identify your fear related thoughts and to learn to distort these thoughts and implanting constructive positive thoughts. You will also learn to relax your mind

I'm 23 years old male. I'm unable to pronounce the letters r, re,RU, ir pls help me to find the solutions pls.

MBBS
General Physician, Mumbai
One of the main reasons for difficulty to pronounce is fear and anxiety. Reduce your speed of speech for now, thus the pronouncing difficulty would decrease and fluency of your speech would become better. When fluency of speech reaches normal, then you gradually increase speed of speech, thus the overall speech can become as original. Because stress and anxiety increases difficulty of speech, you should also do transcendental meditation. How meditation affects health? it has been scientifically proved that meditation not only helps the mind but also body because controlled mind and purification of consciousness leads to better lifestyle and improved habits of food, sleep etc which in turn leads to better overall health. Most diseases have their roots in uncontrolled mind and impure consciousness. So do transcendental meditation by finding and reading iskcon books, either from internet and/or from your nearest iskcon center. Hope this helps,

We should learn to accept and enjoy what god has given us. Why do you want to think that you are a gay and spoil your life. Too much of internet viewing is not good. You get half the information.

These are signs of hysteria and breathing is really important to calming yourself down. This is a fear-based behavior and can be very difficult to treat because you have found an unhealthy adaptation to a normal fear which you feel is impossible to resolve. Apart from regular and aerobic exercising, you must also visit a gym to build a good body image. You can go for personal grooming classes too. While regular vigorous exercise develops your body, the regimen will also enlarge your heart and help you handle stressful situations much more competently than others who don’t exercise. Dress well, eat well, sleep well and conduct yourself well in social circles to build confidence. Perform well in your studies and work, and feel good about your achievements. You could also go for hypnosis sessions to build your self-image from within. Now, remember that all your problems are in your mind: spiritual wellness, faith and prayer will boost your confidence really well. Emotional wellness will take care of the fear factor. There are lots of affirmations, if said three times at a time, everyday, they will gradually strengthen your concept of yourself. Yoga and meditation will also build you up. Speaking to a counselor will give you personal assistance in pursuing these goals.

It is very natural at your age to have an urge of physical relationship and an intimate friend. You are only 20 and actually this is the prime time in your life to focus on your career. Please remember that what ever you can achieve by studying now, will be helpful for you for the rest of the life. If you get distracted now, your studies and career will suffer. And ultimately your future will be affected. So for the time being, do not do anything out of desperation. Do not fall under peer pressure to have a girl friend. For your sexual urge, you can try masturbation. You will be relieved of your tension. But please remember, masturbation is healthy only when you want to relieve yourself of sexual urge. It should not be done as a habit. Compulsive masturbation is harmful for your future relationship.

6 bad behaviors every man should pay attention to

In light of the several recent cases of men battering their wives and maltreating women, it’s about time we talked about certain unhealthy character traits


The statistics of people, especially women in Nigeria, who are abused daily or sustain permanent life-altering physical and psychological injuries is startling.

In trying to attain a more healthy and peaceful society, here are 6 characteristics every man should get rid of:

A few of the initial behaviors you may want to check are intense jealousy, fixation and history of abuse. If you have relatives that have been known to be violent in the past in any way, then you may want to address that.

Here are the six other behaviors to look out for:

Threats: If you tell a lady to do something and she doesn’t oblige you request, you shouldn’t then resolve to threats and violent promises. Being calm and reasoning things out is the way forward.

Commanding behavior: No one likes to be ordered around. A woman is not a piece of furniture that can be pushed around. Respect everyone around you and treat them the way you would like to be treated.

Irrational mood swings: If you notice that you go from 0-100 in a second, then you have an issue on your hands. Get the help of a therapist or prayers, whatever helps.

Destructive behavior: There are so many ways you can have an argument without throwing something against the wall or putting your fist through a wall.

Harmful insults: Watch the words that come out of your mouth. There are certain things we say in the heat of the moment that we can’t take back. However, if they occur often, then you should check it.

Violent outbursts during arguments: Lastly, if your voice keeps rising during arguments to a point where the people in the next compound feel like they are in the same room as you or the person you’re arguing with is flinching, then there’s an issue.

Finally, in regard to this issue, if you know anyone in an abusive relationship or you may be in one yourself and you are the abuser, use these signs as a check and get some help.
