Hi lybrate-user I understand what you are going through. 1. There is no perfect penis size. Any size would do and make you have a satisfactory sexual life. 2. I feel you have body shaming. You are ashamed of being obese and that's why you avoid being intimate with anyone. You can go for liposuction altho exercise would be very healthy not only to reduce weight but for overall mental and emotional weelbeing too. Consult with me for therapy. All the best.

Dear, tobacco is addictive. Cigarette also contains 4000+ carcinogenic chemicals other than nicotine. The best method is to leave it and continue with your will power. There are other methods like nicotine replacement therapy and pharmacotherapy combined. But still you will need will power. You may consult a physician or deaddiction therapist or a rehabilitation facility for further advise. Take care.

I did a lot of test. Like echo cardiogram/ chest xray / ct scan on brain and sinus/ CBC blood test/ sugar test/ liver function test/ kidney function test/ thyroid function test/crp test/ cardiac profile/ dimer test./ ECG test. All my test can back normal. But I still feel sick something my head feel heavy. My body feel tired and lazy. Sometime I feel sleep in the day . My doctor told me maybe anxiety is the cause. Because my doc tor said all my test is good. Seeing all my test is good I do not need to worry if I am sick with a disease or something right.

Dear lybrate user. The way you have carried out a number of tests for yourself, definitely suggest your anxiety, worry and doubt about yourself being healthy. If you are preoccupied with the idea of being diseased and get various tests done time to time even when assured to be healthy by doctor, you may be suffering from hypochondriasis which can be treated with medications. Anyways this is the side of story I have perceived from the information made available by you. For appropriate management you need to get in touch so that complete history and symptoms of your condition can be understood and treatment will be based on the same.

How can one reduce his anger?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

Anger is really a good feeling. Since it a high energy feeling, many of us mistakenly believe that we must be aggressive and violent. That is far from the truth. We must, however, express the emotion. This is where people have a problem. We can express our feelings by just talking about it. As soon as you do that, the level of the feeling will come down and you will return to emotional balance. Unexpressed anger can cause devastation in your system over time: It can give you headaches, fevers, muscle tension, heart ailments and lead to social malfunction. The cost is heavy. We falsely think that people will not like us, if we expressed our anger. In fact, we get more respect when we are open about our feelings. Those who clam up actually cannot be trusted. You don?t want to be counted among them do you? Live a healthy life by expressing your feelings, always.

I am in depression. Due to a lier friend. What should I do now to come out from depression?
You are not really depressed; you are just angry and feel let down. The solution is really very simple: break the relationship with the liar. But the more complicated fact is that everybody lies at least four times a day! lying is quite common and so it is important to accept this fact and learn to live with it. Don? t take it too personally. You must learn to also believe some of what you hear, and know to discern the difference between lies and truth. Many times you have to leave it to the individual to learn lessons from their lies. When people lie one major fallout is that others will not trust them. If you lose the trust of people, what is left? it is important for you to be honest as much as possible. Sometimes you can tell people, and if they accept they can indeed reform but if they don? t, then you have a problem on your hands. Then it is better to quit the relationship.

The first step of quitting any habit is deciding to quit it and second and most important step is be determine on first step. Now do it step by step one cigarette per week. And the number of cigarette you are taking per day within those number of weeks you will quit this habit for sure. Worst way is trying to quit suddenly all together. Good luck.

how do I recover my health?
Dear , mental stress during work is quite common a problem with almost all youngsters and middle aged people. This happens because, at the initial stages of their job, they don't feel satisfied with their job and their salary. The second problem is their passion towards their job. They do not have enough knowledge and if they try to excel in their job, they will be disappointed. First few years should be dedicated to gain more knowledge and to be passionate. There should be a change in attitude and perception. I think one or two telephone counseling sessions with me should provide you with insight to your problem and tips to overcome it. Please let me know if you are willing for online counseling session. Take care.

Every cigarette you smoke will affect your erectile capacity, and in the long run it can lead to impotence. The nicotine in tobacco smoke is a vasco-constrictor which means that it narrows the blood vessels and reduces the blood supply. The penis gets erect from the pressure of the blood that rushes to it when you get sexually aroused. But because of the poor blood flow, it can decrease in its capacity to remain rigid for sexual penetration. Smoking can also affect men's sperm, which can reduce fertility and also increase risks for birth defects and miscarriage. You are well advised to quit immediately.

Dear lybrate-user, welcome to lybrate. Memory and mind power depends mainly on three aspects. Understanding, storage and recollection. To understand what you are studying, you must be able to be attentive or concentrate. Concentration is possible when you are interested in that subject. Creative way of learning can help you concentrate and understand easily. When you are able to understand and concentrate, it is stored within your brain. If you read more and more it will be store in long term memory. Third part is retrieval. Whenever you want to retrive what you learned and stored, your brain gets the request, searches the database and retrieves the information for you. The retrieval may prove to be difficult if you are anxious, stressed, worried or tired physically or mentally. Retrieval is more easy when you are relaxed and healthy. Brain needs nutrients to keep itself sharp. Fruits, vegetables and dry fruits provide much needed nutrients for your brain. Include at least one fruit in your daily diet. Physical exercises, entertainment, hobbies, relaxation, memory games like sudoku etc help keep your memory sharp and active. Take care.

I am a male of 47 years and suffering from serious emotional eating disorders. At times, I just walk down the stairs leaving my work to find something to eat and take an aimless stroll. Am I going to depression? I am having serious differences with my children as I try to steer them clear of the hardship of lives. They think that I am over reactive, hotlar type and thus do not have any respect for me.

I am a male of 47 years and suffering from serious emotional eating disorders. At times, I just walk down the stairs ...
First, let me address your emotional eating disorder. You need to identify the emotion that is behind the excessive eating: are you sad, angry, afraid or happy that you tend to want to eat every time? when you have done that it is as simple as addressing the feeling that feeds into the over-eating and you will cease to have a problem. This can be done with a counselor, ideally. Many of us over-eat when emotionally distraught. You are already over-weight and for some people weight gain is a side effect of the medication. Apart from that it is likely that your metabolism might have reduced considerably making you susceptible to gain weight even with small quantities of food. If you still want to eat (i mean healthy food of course), you can consume more, if you did some noteworthy exercise, after getting approval from your doctor. Exercise boosts your metabolic rate. Foods also boost metabolism: egg whites, lean meat, water, chili peppers, coffee, green tea, milk, whole grains, and lentils. Cucumber is a zero calorie food and takes long to digest and much metabolism too. If you have it before each meal and any amount too, it will curb the amount of consumption. Even so, the addictive aspect of eating involves the obsession and compulsion i. E. Your mind will be always thinking about food and then it will feed into a compulsion to consume something. So, if you occupy yourself, (not busy) then the mind will not think too much on food and therefore it will negate the compulsion. Now all these measures will have a positive effect on your bp. Regarding gaining the respect of your children, it is true that people who are losing control over their own habits, like in an addiction type of circumstance, tend to be too protective and restrictive towards their children. You need to trust your children by giving them more freedom. You can trust your children more by giving them the right values in childhood and then you can relax because it acts like a vaccination. Your role as a parent is to offer them good role models and to give them useful information to help them handle life. If they mess up, it is still okay, but the great advantage you have is to know that you had told them and now it is their responsibility, not yours.
