Your love is immature and possessive which is more dangerous than cancer. True love is beyond doubts. You can not change the past. But, you can change your thought about the past. Since you are 21, your lover must also be around 20 who may not make right decisions regarding love (past one). She loves you in the present. You are digging out the past which nobody can change. Practicing forgiveness and unconditional love will lead you to a divine love-life. Hell? (past) or heaven? (present)= the choice is yours.

Expect More from Autistic Kids

If you think it's easy being a kid with autism, think again. Not only are you faced with all of the challenges related to a serious developmental disorder, but you're ALSO faced with a raft of raised expectations that other kids are spared.

You read that right. It's true. Kids with autism are very often expected to behave better, focus better, and interact with more social graces than kids without autism.

High Functioning Autism
And if they don't the consequences can be severe. Rather than receiving a "pass" as typical kids might ("he's having a bad day," "she's just a little shy," etc.), kids with autism who don't present themselves in a manner deemed "appropriate" can receive consequences or be quickly relegated to "special" classrooms, segregated sports teams, and yet more intensive therapies.

What do these increased expectations look like? Here are a few comparisons that may surprise you.

Typically developing children are often "addicted" to cell phones, ipads, and other devices. When addressed, they may give fleeting glances to the peers adults around them. This poor social etiquette is generally given a passing shrug, as adults note how times -- and expectations -- have changed. Not so for children on the autism spectrum. When they fail to look an adult or peer in the eye, they are challenged to do so -- and may received consequences such as the loss of a privilege if they fail to do so.
Etiquette is, let's face it, a dying art. Very few typically developing children are asked to shake hands firmly with adults while making direct eye contact and saying lines like "it's a pleasure to meet you." Children with autism, however, are taught just these somewhat archaic skills -- skills which are not only age inappropriate, but which mark them as even more "special" among their peers.

Conversation among children, particularly boys, is typically very basic. Kids may say little more than "lookit!" "Cool!" "Can I try?" for long periods of time. And that's fine. Unless the children happen to be autistic. In that case, assuming they are verbal, they are asked to ask and answer questions that are utterly inappropriate for children of their age. What 10 year old -- except an autistic child in a social skills group run, almost always, by middle-aged women -- says "how was your weekend? did you have a good time at the zoo? which animals did you like best? we went to the movies. I enjoyed seeing the new Disney film."
Plenty of typically developing children are shy, or have a tough time reading body language and social cues. When that happens, adults may note that the child is shy, and either accommodate their preferences or gently encourage more social interaction. Autistic children are not so lucky. A preference for quiet and/or solitude is rarely seen as a personal preference, and instead is viewed as an autistic symptom. As a result, it must be "remediated" through a course of social skills training, peer "buddy" events, and other therapeutic programs.
Many typically developing children have behavior issues at school. They may blurt out answers rather than raise their hands, lose focus during tests, or have a tough time sharing or collaborating. When that happens, for the most part, teachers respond with brief admonitions to "raise your hand," "play nicely," or "work with your partner." Children with autism, however, have a much tougher standard to meet. When they "blurt" or lose focus, they are subject to various consequences which may range from losing privileges to actually being transferred to a segregated school setting.
When a typical child comes home and spends time alone to wind down, parents are usually very accepting. After all, everyone needs a little alone time -- right? When a child with autism does the same, however, parents are concerned: is he making friends? Does he need more social skills therapy? There's a good chance that alone time will not be tolerated.

Sir, my father smokes frequently, many times me and my family members asked to give it up, he tried it several times but unable to give it up, is there any medicine which could keep him away from it or is there any course he should follow? plz.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

Ideally you must spend a lot of time convincing him to stop the smoking. Of course he will agree sometimes and sometimes he will change his mind. Giving up is difficult but if you highlight the dangers of smoking regularly he may one day decide to quit. Never give up on him. Because of his age and quantity of cigarettes smoked and the length of abuse, he will find is even harder. When quitting, he must take one day at a time. If he looks too far ahead he will get discouraged and will give up. If he sits and counts the number of days he has given up, that will also focus too much on achievement. He must focus on the here and now, on that day to be precise. After all quitting is not that easy due to many factors. So even if he fails one day, he must try and try again. Very few people succeed in their first attempt. His persistence and yours will eventually pay off. 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 his 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 him about continuing in the habit. The information is really scary but true and he must remind himself about this every day. The nicotine in tobacco smoke stimulates the heart beat to raise the blood pressure in no time at all. So he must avoid it like the plague: it is just very bad medicine for him. In fact it is highly toxic too. He will need to stop smoking or consuming any tobacco related items with immediate effect. He should start vigorous exercises, gradually increasing it over a period of time. Do deep breathing exercises every time he feels like smoking (try Yoga), and replace the oral urge with some healthy food substitute to satiate the need. He 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. He 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 him 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 he has quit smoking. Here’s a piece of very good advice: even if he accidentally/willfully takes a cigarette, it is not the end of the world – he can start the cessation all over again. He must persevere with the best support until he defeats this addiction. Counseling is very useful in the initial stages and when temptations are at their highest. Everyone who can help him should be involved until he succeeds. If all this does not work, you can admit him into a rehabilitation center and let him stay there until he has completely quit the habit.

This can be ideally worked out with a therapist who will see the need to explore your developmental history to source the origins. In the meantime, it is very prudent to understand that sex has many more dimensions than the mere act of physical copulation. There is, besides the physical aspect, the emotional, intellectual, social and even the spiritual dimension to sex. In this context we refer to it as sexuality which has to it femininity and masculinity. In fact all of us have both these aspects to our sexuality, and if a male has developed more of the femininity in him, he is likely to display effeminate traits and may even favor female companions and relations. So a good education of these different aspects and dimensions of sex and sexuality will play a significant role in helping you to determine your orientation and favor the one that is most desirable to you. A sex educationist can help you a lot to understand the male and female natures in us called Anima and Animus. If this is not the case, then your orientation may have to be revised.

Why It Is Important To Quit Cigarettes Using Smokeless Tobacco?

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Ahmedabad
Why It Is Important To Quit Cigarettes Using Smokeless Tobacco?

The use of any tobacco product has both immediate and long-term effects on your health and overall well-being. Smokeless tobacco stains and wears down your teeth, causes your gums to recede (peel back) and produces mouth sores. Bad breath is also a common problem. Over time, the use of smokeless tobacco can cause mouth cancer. Nicotine from smokeless tobacco also raises blood pressure and cholesterol levels, and can increase your risk of having heart attack. List your own reasons for wanting to quit using smokeless tobacco. In addition to the effects of smokeless tobacco on your health, you may be concerned about saving money or setting a good example for family members and friends. Write down your reasons for wanting to quit. Then keep your list in places where you can see it often. Visit nearby psychiatrist for de-addiction if required.

Proxy treatment for an adult refusing treatment requires you to submit a petition to magistrate/ judge who will examine the said person by summoning and then refer her to a psychiatrist (medical board) for assessment by a reception order. Based on the psychiatric teams finding the said person can be forceful treated under the judge's supervision so human rights are not violated at the same time, a suffering mentally ill person lacking insight, get treated correctly.

Keep to yourself for some days. Don't try to struggle for the opposite. This too will pass. If you struggle against the" depression" it may last longer or else take a counseling session.

Thanks for your suggestion. I am on Theo-asthalin tabs 1-0-1 and Aerocort inhaler, which contains both a long acting beta 2-agonist and a cartico steroid. Asthmatic attacks have disappeared. I have a question. I am on Valium 2 mg 1-0-1 for anxiety and Nitrosun 10 mg 0-1-0 for my afternoon distress. Of course, they have been prescribed by my psychiatrist. They belong to the same group viz Benzodiazepine. Kindly clarify, if they can be taken together out of fear of toxity.

Valium and nitrosun as rightly said are benzodiazepines usually prescribed for relieving anxiety and they do impart good sleep. There are few chances of toxicity at the dosage which you are taking but they need to taken cautiously when one is having history of asthama. There are more chances of being dependent on them if taken for long period of time as they have addictive potential. Ideally one needs to work on his anxiety by behavioural therapy and these medicines can be helpful in initial phase but should not be taken for more than 1-2 months.

I cannot work among a group of people. I have social anxiety, inferiority complex, insecurities with appearance. I have a very very poor memory and I lack concentration. I am 46 and complaining like a college goer. I am ashamed of myself. I am good for nothing fellow. I am a useless fellow. I have worked at various concerns and I find people working and feeling normal like whereas I find myself in a miserable state unable to perform my job, unable to socialise, and then the other issues which I discussed before. I may commit suicide if my situation deteriorates. Is there anyone in this world who can help me without taking any fees. Rgds Monty.

Dear lybrate-user, You have to take treatment for your hand washing obsessions. It needs long term high dose antidepressants by a psychiatrist. Recently mental health care bill was passed in loksabha. It states that mentally ill has a right for free treatment and care. Please go to the government hospital at Nashik and ask for psychiatrist. He/she will treat you free of cost. You have every right to ask for free treatment. Later you can ask for disability assessment since you are unable to earn or be in a job. With many years of OCD and no permanent job, you may qualify for 40% disability. That certification gives many benefits to you just like a blind person getting benefits. You can get job under disabled quota also. It may take 2-3 days of waiting and meeting relevant persons at government district hospital. Please make this efforts since OCD is a chronic disorder needing continuous long term treatment and care.
