Hie lybrate-user. Don't worry keep taking medicines and start doing meditation and exercises. In the short run, Take a break as soon as you recognize that you're angry. Stop what you're doing, get away from whatever is irritating you, and just take a breather. Breathe deeply, from your diaphragm; breathing from your chest won't relax you. Picture your breath coming up from your "gut. Slowly repeat a calm word or phrase such as "relax, "take it easy. Repeat it to yourself while breathing deeply. Use imagery; visualize a relaxing experience, from either your memory or your imagination. Ask for the support of someone you trust. If you're still upset, sharing your concerns with a close friend or confidant might help. Try to see some humor in what angered you. After you've calmed down and established that you're ready to get over the incident, try to see the lighter side. In the long run, Do some physical exercises. The endorphins from exercise can help you calm down, and moving your body provides a physical outlet for your rage. Cognitive restructuring - Ask yourself honestly if you see everyone and everything as an adversary or an obstacle. Odds are, the world isn't exactly that way - but you think it is. Change the way you think about life. Keep a journal of what upsets you and how you plan to fix it. Lastly, if all else fails, visit a mental health professional Thank You.

Sir I use to forget things frequently and sometimes I forget the work I have gone for.Please suggest some solution

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

This type of forgetfulness is not normal and is definitely stress induced. It is referred to as discounting: which is really a loss of awareness though we wrongly describe it as forgetting, for want of a better word. You are discounting almost like that of an aged person. You need to identify the stress and do some work with a counselor to sort it out. You may be aware of the stress but have not done anything substantial to deal with it and so the extent of discounting. It has to do with an emotion, normally. Are you sad, scared, or angry, and are you not expressing the same? There are other reasons for discounting but I will not go into that to avoid confusing you. If you are not able to relate to he emotional factor, let me know and we can explore the other contributing factors.

Good afternoon. mera brother ke alcohol adict ke bare ma question puchana chata hu. Ki unke alchoal adict h.or unke liver or kidney bhi kafi kuch nuksan ho suka h.unko alchoal chudvana chate h.eske bare me sugesation dijiye.

you may attempt the following and see how it works: I know you have probably tried a de-addiction center but he should not have been released if he was not ready. So in this attempt, he may be taken to another de-addiction center that is stricter and will also have a follow-up treatment and AA meetings for him to compulsorily attend. Whatever I suggest, kindly involve or share it with mom or elder family members to make it effective and suffer the least backlashes, if any. Ideally, your brother should want to give up alcohol himself to begin with. If not, it is going to be an uphill task and to the most part impossible. However, you should not be in want of trying. If he is unwilling to seek help, he needs to be admitted to a rehabilitation center for at least 6 months. If not, there are centers who will come and pick him up when he is drunk, when his resistance will be ineffective. This will require mom's or his wife's permission and written consent. After your brother returns from therapy, there will be a lot of follow-ups, both in the house and in his daily activities that must be meticulously adhered to. There is a medicine called Disulfiram, which only the doctor can prescribe, and it is very powerful that even if he attempts to drink a small quantity, he can have serious reactions that may sometimes entail hospitalization. You have to monitor his intake of the medicine and keep a close watch on him. He also has to go for regular counseling for at least three years! Apart from his health, he will also affect the family and all his children will carry genetic factors for alcoholism. If he is into business or working, he will soon not be able to continue and he will go into financial ruin. He will lose all his friends and become ostracized by his society. He will lose his dignity, self-esteem, self-confidence, and become a misfit. He will also lose his sexual capacity, liver function, heart function, kidney etc. These are all symptoms of 'Hitting Rock Bottom' Now it is difficult to give up because he has become addicted to alcohol for some time and has a lot to do. The consumption of Antabuse has to be carefully monitored to see that he not only consumes the medication but is also avoiding alcohol. Ultimately, it is his will power and the support that he receives from the medical fraternity and his close and dear ones. He must also learn to substitute and deal with the oral need, a rigid value system, the script issue, and of course take a look at all the genetic factors to plan a strategy not to get into what is called ‘cross addictions’ i.e. Another form of addiction that may appear alright but is in fact as bad as the primary addiction. The center or hospital and the counselor will advise and guide him on several measures and precautions he will need to take to stay with his resolve. Even after the rehabilitation he must attend AA meetings and continue this support for a long time. The family will also need to attend some sessions and go for Al-anon meetings for their co-dependency issues. He cannot be treated in isolation because the family has gotten used to his drinking and have made some unhealthy adaptations to somehow cope. The children, including you and whoever else is there, will also have to attend meetings to work out their issues because of the father’s habit. In fact, they are all suffering from the Adult Children Of Alcoholics Syndrome (ACOAs), which in effect means that you are genetically predisposed to alcoholism or can have cross addiction problems and that you will have similar traits of the abusing alcoholic but in a milder form. There are special support groups for them all over the world. Should they touch or indulge in alcohol or any addictive substances or behaviors, they could also become full-fledged addicts themselves. Now you should not give up on him but neither should you harass him. Be continuously after him and in the end, you will succeed. His medical condition may warrant a very strict course of action.

Hi, I understand this a difficult period for you. Take a time out. We have to understand that in life things do not always turn out the way we want them to. Distract, meet your friends, engage in hobbies and understand involve in some sports. This feeling will improve with time. May be you are focusing and thinking too much about her. Start engaging in activities that you used to enjoy before. If possible consult a Psychologist for counselling. One you get a platform to share your feelings gradually you will start feeling better. Thanks Thanks.

4 Ways To Deal With Depression!

4 Ways To Deal With Depression!

Depression is a psychological condition, which can develop in men and women of any age. No one can identify the cause of depression. It can be excessive stress, failure in relationships, academic pressure and various other issues of these sorts. But depression in itself is a serious condition and needs to be treated as soon as possible, lest it aggravates.

Before trying to deal with depression through medicines and counselling, it is important to recognise the signs and symptoms of this condition and try as much as possible to come out of it on your own. There are certain natural remedies, which work during the initial stages of depression. It is only when these fail or it aggravates that the patient must be rushed for immediate counselling. Here are certain natural ways of treating depression.

  1. Sleep well: A sign that you are suffering from depression is lack of sleep. One does not get sleep no matter how hard he/she tries. Even after having sleeping pills, one does not get the correct amount of sleep that he/she requires. This triggers insomnia, thereby causing other health problems to develop. Thus, sleeping is mandatory. If needed, you must force yourself to sleep.
  2. Eat well: It is often said and seen that depression leads you to binge eat or over eat. Overeating would include indulging yourself to too much chips, chocolates, junk food and the like. This would unnecessarily make you gain extra pounds and can trigger obesity. Alternately, it has been seen that the patient lacks the desire to eat anything. This too can lead to adverse effects as the body balance gets disturbed.
  3. Exercise: Regular exercise helps in diverting your mind to something else for a little while. It also helps in keeping you fit and healthy. In case you do not like to exercise, you can opt for jogging or running or even simply taking a walk out in the open. Going out and inhaling fresh air, makes you focus on positive thoughts for a while. A daily dose of positive thoughts can do wonders for you.
  4. Experiment with yourself: Try something new each day that you have not tried ever before. This might include cooking, knitting, riding a bike and the likes. This keeps you busy and keeps your mind off the negative thoughts. What’s more, you might discover some of your hidden talents.

These are some of the natural remedies that you can opt for to fight depression before consulting a psychologist for the same.

Correlation Between Smoking and Erectile Dysfunction in Men

Correlation Between Smoking and Erectile Dysfunction in Men


There are many factors such as physical and psychological factors in their wide rages that can cause erectile dysfunction in men. One of the causes is known to be smoking because smoking has the capability to destroy blood vessels and arteries not to open well enough to allow free flow of blood. The World Health Organization always warn that smokers are liable to die young because of many health risks they exposing themselves to. Among many such diseases include heart disease, stroke, cardiovascular diseases, and pulmonary disease.

Do not let it cross your mind that Viagra will be of help. Recent findings had revealed that, for a rigid, stronger and quicker erection in men, smoking must be stopped.

This writes up tends to do justice to the correlation between smoking and erectile dysfunction in men and as well shed light on many reasons why you need to quit smoking because smoking can damage blood vessels and impede regular blood flow that can cause erectile dysfunction.

Signs and Causes of Erectile Dysfunction

There are many signs and causes of erectile dysfunction in men. There is a great need to seek medical help for any of the signs that will later be listed here, most especially if it has been re-occurring.

This will enable your medical doctor to examine the fundamental cause and what are needed to be treated. Recent findings have shown that there is a strong correlation between smoking and erectile dysfunction and males who completely quit smoking can have stronger, more rigid erections when compared to those who do not quit.

Signs of Erectile Dysfunction

Below are the signs and symptoms of erectile dysfunction:

  • Dropped interest in sex
  • Difficulty in having rigid erection
  • Inability to sustain an erection while having sex
  • Causes of Erectile Dysfunction

As it was mentioned earlier, there are many causes of erectile dysfunction. Listed below are the major causes of ED:

How is Erection Possible?
Erection occurs when there is an increase in blood flow to the penis which is always stirred by sexual imaginations or physical touch with the penis. When stirred, the penis becomes relax and make way for increases blood flow via the penile arteries into the two chambers in the penis which is referred to as the corpora cavernosa.

As soon as the chambers become filled up, the penis becomes rigid. When the muscles contract and the accrued blood flow out via the penile veins, then erection become placid.

Consequent upon the above, erectile dysfunction happens when there is an issue at any stage of the process.

However, the chemicals present in cigarette have the capacity to destroy the blood vessels in men's penis and affect its rigidity. The chemicals not only have adverse effects on the penis but also injure the kidneys, lung, brain, heart and many tissues in the entire body.

Revelation from Researches

Studies have shown that men who smoke cause more harm to their sperm than those who do not smoke. Smokers' testes and accessory glands were observed to have inflammation which results in damaged sperm. This smoking habit negatively affects the health movement in the sperm that leads to increased DNA fragmentation in the sperm.

Erectile dysfunction is known to develop at any adult stage. But it tends to be common as men advance in age. Researchers have discovered that the fundamental problem of erectile dysfunction in younger men is most likely caused by inhalation from a cigarette.

People who smoke are at much higher risk of having erectile dysfunction compared to non-smokers. The level of damages done to your erectile function, your age and damage to other parts of the body can affect the level of erectile function reversibility when you quit smoking.

Impacts of Smoking on the Sexual Health

Active smoking and in some instances passive smoking can cause erectile dysfunction. Smoking has the capacity to destroy healthy muscles in the penis which in-turn affect erectile functioning. This also can lead to a lesser libido.

Cigarette smoking has an adverse effect on the sex life of both men and women and brings about infertility. Also, there is this problem of having a reduction in the size of the penis. Now, imagine the psychological effects it will have on someone who is used to having a larger size of a penis. There is the problem of infertility too.

Coping and Managing Erectile Dysfunction

Erectile dysfunction has a demonstrative impact on the affected man and his partner. Men with this condition usually feel frustrated, sad, little or no confidence and furious let alone a partner who is being denied sexual pleasure. The good news is that erectile dysfunction or impotence can be treated.

Some of the steps in alleviating this issue include being honest, opening up to both your partner and the doctor. Communication is an essential tool in the analysis and management of the state of your health. There is a great need to always let your partner know how you are feeling for adequate support and assistance.

Also, note that you will require patience with self in your treatment and recovery process, having it in mind that individual response to treatment is relative.

This is clearly an anxiety disorder. Treatment is possible and can be done in many different ways. Medicines alone, psychotherapy alone or a combination of both can be used. We routinely encounter clients with such problems at our center and treat them with good results. It will need some basic evaluation and difficult to suggest it in a brief text. You must consult an expert at the earliest in order to prevent yourself on missing out from many good things in life!
