I love a guy. And we have been in a relationship for 5 years. And I know he loves me too. But I don't understand, he says he can't marry me. I don't know the reason because I'm afraid that he'll get annoyed and I'll ruin everything. He is possessive as well as caring about me as a mother. Sometimes he loves me like i cannot express. But he becomes so angry. And never discuss about future. Or why he don't want to marry? Please suggest and I really love him. I just want to be with him.

Ms. Lybrate-user, many times there are these differences in men and women. For a woman a relationship is always marriage oriented, but many men are not looking for a commitment when they are in a relationship. So you have to set your priorities, if marriage is your goal, lose your fear and talk to him. But if the relationship dynamics are such that you are afraid to even talk to him. My dear I am afraid your relationship is not very sound. Trust, freedom and commitment these qualities are very important for a stable relationship.

I am suffering from depression for last two years, headache. Now I am doing yoga but not getting relief, what to do.

Dear, welcome to lybrate. Yoga alone can never cure depression. Clinical depression or depressive disorder is a neurochemical disorder. Clinical depression is usually treated with a combination of psychiatric medicines, psychotherapy, life style changes, meditation and exercise. I hope you are undergoing psychiatric treatment, otherwise, please approach a psychiatrist. Once you make the necessary amendments in your life with the help of the above said therapies and life style changes, learn how to manage the depressive episodes without medicines and learn to relax, the medicines can be weaned off over a period of one year. The best option for you is to undergo counseling and depression related therapy. Take care.

I have severe depression and anxiety and panic disorder along with ptsd. I also have a mess if?

Homeopath, Faridabad
Hello, Practicing yoga with homoeopathic medication helps you in releasing the stress from your body. Brisk walk in a park will help you inhale more fresh air and oxygen for good functioning of the cells and tissues of the body. Medication: Take Schwabe’s Bacopa Monierri 1x/ thrice daily and Kali Phos. 6x/ once at night. Yogasana: Practice the following poses if you don’t have any medical condition or pregnancy or else take an advice from your concern doctor and then only perform these. 1. Balasana: Sit on your heels with your big toes touching and hands resting on your thighs. Lower your belly and chest to rest between your knees, bringing your forehead to the floor. Relax your arms back beside your shins, palms facing up. Soften your breath by taking 5 to 10 long, deep inhalations and exhalations. 2. Savasana: lie back, letting your body sink into and open around the support. End in a supported pose on your back with a folded blanket under the length of the spine to help arch the upper and middle back, and lengthen the lower back. Move your arms a comfortable distance away from your body and anything else around you. Turn your palms to face up. Separate your legs a natural distance apart. Relax your feet and let them roll open. Finally, do a mental scan from head to toe: Where are you holding tension. Release it from every part of your body—including your heart and head. 3. Bhujanasana: Slowly slide forward from Child's Pose to lie facedown. Press your toes and forehead gently into the floor. Rest your palms lightly on the floor on either side of your chest with fingertips pointing forward and elbows bent and hugging in toward your ribcage. Inhale and lift your chest from the heart, pressing only very lightly into your palms and mostly using your back strength to hold your shoulders and chest up. Soften your shoulders. Then lift your hands off the floor completely, broadening across your collarbones and reaching your heart up. Take a couple of deep, slow breaths here. Then as you exhale, place your palms back down and gently lower your chest to floor.

Hi, last month it was my first experience while I was starting my work in office, my ears started to vibrate like a pulsate, I felt annoying and immediately took leave and consulted ent specialist? he prescribed me vertin tablet 16mg, I was alright taking that tablet. Again from last two week I am feeling the same vibration in my ears and imbalance? I consulted another ent specialist who did septoplast surgery to me on 2010? he did some tests using earphones in my ears and told there is no problem in my ears and I will become perfect in 10 days, he prescribed me with 2 tablets (prothiaden 25mg night time after food and prodex 20mg morning after food) I felt very anxiety and confused and fear like phobia very suddenly when I took prothiaden 25mg for the 2nd day. I called to doctor and he asked me to stop prothiaden as that was side effect? the third day afternoon I felt same and was sweating too? again I called to doctor and he asked me to stop both the tablet and asked me to consult neurologist. Neurologist doctor told me I have panic disorder and I will be alright in few days? he prescribed me nexito 10mg and betacap tr 40? unfortunately the next day I again felt weakness in my body and dry mouth and wheezing? once I phone called to doc he asked me to stop betacap as that is side effect as I have asthma? but even though after taking nexito I am feeling sick, difficulty in breathing? I stopped all the tablets and I was fine little for the next day? I felt weakness anxiety again sometime for half an hour to one hour today afternoon while I was working in office? I still feel shaken worrying if it comes again to me? what should I do if again I feel the same?

Hello your symptoms match those of panic disorder. Nexito takes atleast 1-2 weeks to show effect. You need to wait till it starts working. In the meanwhile, you can take an anti anxiety drug like clonazepam during a panic attack. Also, psychotherapy done along with medicines shows better results.

Hello Dr, I am a male .I used to crossdress myself like a female when am alone .why does this happens to me? Am I normal? Please tell me!

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Chennai
Wearing females dress for sexual gratification is called transvestism. This is a type of sexual perversion if this occurs consistently leading to impairment in life. If this behavior is rare, once in a while, it can be ignored as falling under a deviance of normalcy, so do not worry. Consult a psychiatrist if you have further doubts. All the best.

Dear lybrate-user, I would like you to read about fetishism, in psychology, a form of sexual deviance involving erotic attachment to an inanimate object or an ordinarily asexual part of the human body. Fetishism as a mental condition may be defined as the necessity to use a non-genital object in order to achieve sexual gratification. The affected person has created a strong association between an object and sexual pleasure or gratification. The object may be some other body part, an article of clothing, or, less frequently, some more impersonal object. A person with a fetish often spends significant amounts of time thinking about the object of the fetish. Further, the object is intimately related to sexual pleasure or gratification. In the extreme, the presence of the fetish object is required for sexual release and gratification. The person with fetishism frequently masturbates while holding, rubbing, or smelling the fetish object or may ask the sexual partner to wear the object during their sexual encounters. Usually the fetish is required or strongly preferred for sexual excitement, and in its absence there may be erectile dysfunction in males. The condition occurs almost exclusively among men, and most of the objects used relate to the female body or female clothing. The articles of clothing most commonly used are shoes and items of female underclothes. Olfactory sensations are also frequently important. For some people with a paraphilia such as fetishism, paraphilic fantasies or stimuli may be necessary for erotic arousal and are always included in sexual activity, or the presence of the fetish object may occur only episodically. For example, the fetish object may only be necessary for arousal during periods of stress, and at other times, the person is able to function sexually without the fetish or stimuli related to the fetish. If you have any further query, feel free to contact.

In my mind, there are continuously coming thoughts. And some full of negative energy. If I want to remove it what should I do for it?

Homeopath, Solan
Hello, negative thinking occurs some times because you have issues or emotions to get out so never hides your feeling inside. And just clear your issues. And some times negative thinking happens because you are not happy inside. So you need to do some things dat makes you happy like whatever you like. And you need to be do some yoga, and most important is meditation keep calm and throw your all negative wives in a dustbin and full your self with positive thinking. And never get depressed every thing will be good in life. Troubles came only for short period and be happy in all situations. And negative thinking makea you selfish. So be positive.

Iam studying B. Tech. I am not able to remember during exams what I have read. I should read a question 5 to 6 times to get it. Please suggest me what should I do.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

You are definitely under some stress. Meet with a counselor and take care of the stress to regain your concentration. In teh meantime do the following regularly: Daily exercise of at least half an hour is a must. Even if you go to a gym, ask for aerobic and/or callisthenic exercises with whatever else you are doing. A healthy body harbors a healthy mind. With regard to memory, it is very important that your brain and body is ideally rested to be able to recall whatever is required, rather comfortably. Puzzles pose problems to the brain that help it to use new pathways and neurons, which give the brain considerable exercise. It taxes the left brain to use logic to solve the myriad possibilities which other activities do not stimulate. Crosswords are excellent for vocabulary learning and use. Jigsaws and Rubik cube stimulate different permutations to finally settle on the most likely one. Picture completion and anagrams help approach problem solving from several angles. Do Sudoku, and memory co-relation activities and skills. Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber (whole grains, fruits and vegetables), nuts, avocado, eat dark chocolate, consume less of fat and use olive oil instead, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. You need to check out if you are stronger visual or auditory. The visual is a better mode than the auditory. However, if you combine the two modes, you will get the best concentration. Have a special place of learning, which should be well lit, with soft painted walls, well-ventilated, with no distractions. When you get bored, study by writing. If you repeat learning at least five to seven times, you will apparently remember for a longer time. Sit comfortably but do not slouch. The reading material should be of a fairly large print. Study at small intervals of about 40 minutes and then take a break or change the subject. Short-term memory is a faculty of the left brain, and long-term memory is a feature of the right brain. When people are stressed, they tend to favor the right brain and abandon the left brain, where short-term memory resides. So, it is really very simple: deal with the stress and activate left brain functions. Here are a few suggestions to activate left brain function: 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. There is a new exercise called Super Brain Yoga, which is done by holding the right earlobe with your left thumb and index finger, and the left earlobe with your right hand’s thumb and index finger. In this position you must squat down and rise up and do this for five minutes every day. There are some memory enhancing techniques and study methods that your teacher will be able to guide you with. If your home life is full of distractions and stress, it is likely to affect your memory, adversely. In that case, I suggest that the family goes for counseling too. The following foods do help too: Blueberries, walnuts, turmeric, Spinach, tomatoes, broccoli, acorn squash, green tea, oily fish, boiled egg, turkey, apples, oatmeal, leafy greens, lentils, pumpkin seeds, avocado, cinnamon, thyme, sunflower seeds, and red wine. Avoid sugar and junk food.

Dear lybrate user. The quantity and viscosity of semen depends on many factors including your body's hydration level, stress, frequency of masturbation or sexual intercourse etc. I assure you, quantity or viscosity or semen never determines the quality or sexual performance. Don't worry about it and take care.

Hello, I'm 25 year old working women. My parents want me to get married and are working on it. I feel like I'm not ready yet. I feel like I need some more time. I tried telling this to my parents, but they say, "as per your age you r ready and once yu get married everything will b fine. Sometimes I feel my parents are correct and sometimes I feel if I listen to them I'm gonna spoil my life and even my partner's life. Due to immense pressure by my parents and over thinking. I've found myself being moody and irritated etc. I wanna control all this. Pls help Thank you.

Psychologist, Delhi
Its very common now a days neither your parents are wrong nor you are wrong ,its correct that 25 is the right age for marriage but if still you are not ready then its better that you wait for 1 year and during this time you can makeup your mind for this. Marriage is life time commitment so its decision should not be taken in hurry or in someone's pressure. You can also take help of any professional regarding this .And if still this condition continues then its better that you should avoid this, by thinking on this topic you will gain nothing ,only your frustration level will increase and it will adversely effect your working capacity .share all this with any good friend then you will feel relax. Take care.

Dear Lybrate user, Depression involves feelings of helplessness, hopelessness and worthlessness about the self, world and future. There is also a distinct lack of interest in activities that were once enjoyable and there might also be changes in sleeping and eating habits. If you notice any of these in your wife, then I suggest you consult a clinical psychologist who will be able to help you and your wife cope with the symptoms effectively.

There is some job related problem in my life. And its too long now. So I sometimes feel very sad and always depressed and thinks of suicide too.

Ph. D - Psychology, Professional Certified Coach
Psychologist, Ahmedabad
Stress is a by product of our modern life style. Due to chronic stress you have a negative chain of thought repeating in your mind. The wonderful new is that our mind could be wired to switch back to positive things and resilience building. When things does not happen as we wish or people do not behave as we expect that is when out of disappointment, frustration, loneliness, anger, sadness. Etc we react and our mind starts thinking negative thoughts. Changing this pattern of responding to stressful situation requires both persistence and patience. Also you will only be able to work on this out of love and kindness towards you. Strong motivation will go a long way. Writing a statement about how would you want to respond in a similar situation and how will your life and your happiness will change if you do learn to manage your stress and how to respond to it. Once that is clear. Try following things to learn relaxation response which leads to better coping mechanism on a daily basis. To begin with doing guided progressive muscular relaxation before sleeping will help you relax. You could google and download an audio file. I would also suggest you to take a multiple small break to take 3 nice and deep breath while keeping your eyes closed. You could do this while sitting or standing or while even walking or climbing stairs (keep your eyes open in that case). When you take a nice and deep break there is actual physiological change in your body. This will help you to activate parasympathetic nervous system which promotes relaxation and helps you calm down and think more clearly. This will also actually improve your performance in your work. Along with this exercise is one of the best way to relive stress and stay fit. Engage in any kind of physical activity at least 4 times a week. This also helps in stress reduction. Along with this some relaxation exercises as well as engaging in joyful activities such as music, singing, dancing, reading, being in nature, gardening, talking with friends or anything which you enjoy will help reducing stress and rejuvenation of your mind and body. Have good routine for sleep and eating. Lot of research has now proven that sugar is very harmful for our health. Reduce sugar and refined white floor in your diet as much as you could. Along with this also increase consumption of raw vegetables in the form of salad in both the meals of your day. As a positive psychologist and a certified life and wellness coach I would be able to help build resilience and confidence to take on life and learn how to excel in what you do. Hope this helps. Wishing you very best.
