My eyes are constantly feeling tired, and slightly burning up. Also tears up a little bit every now and then. My vision is not as good as before, but not that bad. I have no form of headache though. Could this mean I will be needing glasses? Or could this just be because of stress?

Issues in a Marriage

Post Graduate Diploma in Pyschology

Issues in a Marriage

The institution of marriage is a herculean task; little does it rest on the sanctified rituals and other vows of commitment. Tying of the knot is perhaps symbolic of the several ups and downs a couple faces together. Marriage is challenging precisely because of the myriad problems it entails. What makes a marriage successful is how two loving individuals face and combat each of these issues.

Let us take a look at the common marital issues:

  1. Money could grab a place between partners: Monetary problems can come in the way of happy living. Monetary constraints can make partners bicker as they lead to severe tension. If making both ends meet is a constant worry or if one individual earns way less than the other, friction in the marriage is but expected.
  2. Relatives and in- laws could irk your bond: Officious relatives, in- laws and other apparent well- wishers can do loads to spoil your marriage. They tend to create differences between husband and wife. There are times when they convey lies between the couple. Their unnecessary curiosity can also dampen your bond.
  3. Domestic responsibilities could also be the issue: Husbands and wives may have arguments and serious fights over issues related to the household; cleaning, washing, buying grocery can trigger disputes within the family. Housework should, therefore, be shared and done by both the partners.
  4. Decisions with regard to rear up children are often problematic: Married couples can behave in bizarre ways when it comes to taking decisions on behalf of their children. A difference in opinion in decision- making can make partners review their choice of one another. They may even doubt their child's secure future in the hands of their partner.
  5. Irregular sex can be a threat to emotional intimacy: Marriage endows a couple with so many duties that they may fail to make love that frequently. Lack of sexual intercourse can create marital problems.

Dear Rishabh, Alcohol and nicotine addiction also comes under abuse and addiction. If you’re ready to stop the substance and willing to get the support you need, you can recover from addiction and abuse —no matter how bad the addiction or how powerless you feel. The first step in treating addiction is accepting that you have a problem. Confronting an addiction and accepting responsibility for your actions isn’t easy. But it’s a necessary step on the road to treatment and recovery. You should then consult a psychiatrist / psychologist who fill follow this treatment. 1. Detoxification using medicines. 2. Behavior modification with the help of therapies. 3. Counseling. 4. Medication to sustain and 5. Long term support. These given steps are essential for any addict to get effectively rid of addiction. Therefore, you need to stick to the treatment plan and cooperate with your psychiatrist / psychologist. Take care.

I regularly do smoking and drinking but really wanna quit from these all things. So can you please suggest me some really helpful tips so that I can be free from these bad habits?

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Jaipur
Hi, to left your alcohol and smoking the foremost important thing is that your motivation. If you are motivated then you can. As we know that alcohol and tobacco work on brain and person who is used to consume it get dependent on that to work properly. If he wouldn't took these he would feel withdrawal in the form of tremors in hand, sweating, palpitation, anxiety etc in case of alcohol and some time it may leads to seizure also. In case of tobacco he feel irritability, unable to concentrate on work, remain preoccupied with same. So its prudent to take help of de-addiction specialist to manage all these. Other then that medication are also available to decrease craving. A de-addiction specialist also help you by other psychosocial intervention like motivation enhancement therapy, relapse prevention therapy and other one. So in order to get proper help you should visit a psychiatrist.

Since you showed considerable improvement with above medications it is advisable that you donot alter doses or stop or skip medications at your wish. Consult your treating physician or me online for a gradual reduction in number and doses of medications. This would ensure continued improvement and reduce chances of relapse in future.

General Physician,
Best age to stop smoking is before 40 ,In fact do not start all Only by using strong will power and avoiding all situations where you feel like smoking, chewing tobacco or drinking or using drugs avoiding friends who smoke and diverting mind by reading or chewing a gum, like NICORETTE and taking a walk when you crave for a smoke can all help. You can chew Nicorette gum which is nicotine replacement. There are medicines available. Which can be prescribed if asked personally Cigarette smoking is a leading preventable cause of mortality.

Hello. It's good that you have made your mind to give up this habit of chewing tobacco! There are bad effects of chewing tobacco which can ruin your whole life! Now, overcome this habit gradually and slowly, you can opt for some other healthy thing like saunf, dark chocolates to replace tobacco. Also, take homoeopathic medication by Schwabe - Daphne Indica 1x/ thrice daily for 4weeks. Revert back. All the very best!!

4 Stubborn Intelligence Myths That Just Won't Die. Know The Facts

4 Stubborn Intelligence Myths That Just Won't Die. Know The Facts
'Thought processing' or 'Mentality' is the mental processing of information verbally or visually. It can take many forms such as reasoning, problem-solving, day-dreaming, desiring, fantasizing and so on. There are many false notions about intelligence and our brains that are widely believed to be the truth. Here I am listing a few of those most common myths and what the actual facts are.

Myth #1: People tend to believe that thinking is conditioned by the extent of one's education. Higher education equals better thinking.
Fact: Education does not allow one to think independently. Formal education focuses on analytical and logical thinking abilities. Undoubtedly, logic & analysis help you succeed in life but divergent thinking is what defines one as a creative and original thinker.

Myth #2: People who have never received any sort of education can never be good thinkers.
Fact: People who receive little or no education do not have many references or lessons learnt in school to fall back upon. Their experiences are first-hand. It usually enables them to come up with original solutions to problems.

Myth #3: People with lower IQ (Intelligence Quotient) possess lesser thinking ability and those with higher IQ are better thinkers.
Fact: A higher IQ doesn't always necessarily equals greater thinking ability. Similarly, a lower IQ doesn't always equals lower thinking ability. There are a lot of other factors which play role here.

Myth #4: You are born with abilities to think, take decisions and solve problems. It cannot be acquired.
Fact: Thinking is a skill. And skills can be developed. Thus, thinking can be reinforced by training and practice. Consequently, problem solving, decision-making and creative thinking skills can evolve and improve.

I am a loud talker I have very loud voice a heavy and harsh voice which cause embarrassment in public. How can I speak softly and can have a pleasant tone quality. Do I have any problem in my vocal cord.

M.S. Counselling and Psychotherapy
Psychologist, Bangalore
I think you have learnt this from your parents/grandparents or other important people, in your early childhood. But the good news is, you can" unlearn" this behaviour and" relearn" how to speak politely and softly. You can practice talking when you are alone, inside a closed room. After practising alone to speak softly, then while in public, please make conscious efforts, to speak slowly and softly. Tell yourself that you need to speak in a gentle voice and to achieve this, do not say anything on your own. Speak only when someone asks your opinion or when you need to talk. Make small sentences. Be careful while choosing your words. Make a list of words which you feel are harsh and try to replace it with milder words. Inform your family memebers about it so that they will not worry when they find you talking alone in a closed room. Please ask your family members and friends to help you in your efforts, by signalling you, when you start talking harshly/loudly. Many times it can be because of anxiety or anger. If you feel people are not listening to you then you are likely to talk in a louder voice. It there is some resentment or anger you are likely to use harsh words. Please check with yourself, what is happening. You already have awareness and acceptance about this, which is very appreicable. Now take the next step to make the necessary changes as mentioned above. All the best.

Love is an emotion, a positive feeling. It grows into a relation between a boy & girl when it is two sided, when both find each other compatible, understand & respect each other or when their expectations are fulfilled. Maybe she had the feeling of love emotionally, but practically could not let it develop into a relation for some reasons personal to her, & walked out. That relation is past now. & life had moved ahead of it by 5 years. Do not take it in a negative & destructive way, but look at it maturely & practically. A relation is never successful if it is not compatible & two sided. Such relation ultimately breaks up at one point, & may be your relation would have broken down, if not then maybe later. If would have broken later would have harmed you more, as with years emotions would have grown stronger, maybe would have been married by then or maybe would have passed that age when you could have planned your life in a new way. She realized that the relation was not compatible for her, & she discontinued it. That was a good & healthy decision from her side to move out, rather than playing with your emotion or lingering something which was not possible from her side. Do not bring ego in between, as a break up does not mean personally either of the two is unworthy or not suitable, but it is the end of a relation that could not happen because of some reason. You are wasting your time in something that is past now. Plan your future & try to move ahead in life & take as whatever happened, had happened for good. Find someone with whom you are compatible & comfortable & start a new relation. As you said you had deep love for her; as the love did not grow into a relation, better to look at it a feeling you experienced once & try to move ahead towards an attuned relation. One cannot stay in the past, & have to move on. Do not keep any hatred feeling for her as it may harm both of you. Respect her decision & try to forget the past. You loved she once, always stay her well-wisher & long the best for her. One do not control over one’s emotion, but have control over one’s action. You both can still be good friends. At you will move ahead in life, you will slowly come out of your past. Think positive & all the best for your future life.

Dear , if you are able to watch a movie for two hours continuously, if you are able to play a game for an hour, then you do not have any concentration problems. You must be able to understand concentration, attention span, recollection and distraction. You can't be attentive towards your studies because you are not interested in it. You are able to watch movie and play game because you are interested in it. Human cannot be attentive towards anything for more than 10 minutes. Then you should study in such a way that your attention is continued and make the subjects are interesting to you. Effective learning techniques should help you. Recollection depends on anxiety, stress and other physical and circumstantial factors. Distractions while studying are plentiful. You should be able to overcome distractions or avoid distractions. Please understand the above. Change your study style and attitude accordingly. Please post a private question to me and I will help you with" effective learning" techniques. Take care.

Dear Lybrate user, At your friends age, Memory problems like amnesia are not common. Many young people are having problems with memory. These problems are either they are too busy or due to anxiety and stress. Busy people use organizers or employ a personal assistant because they can't remember every task. You need to understand this. If you still say, you are having memory problems, we need to check your memory using memory test. If you want more of my help in this regard, please contact me. Take care.

Hi sir. Why the medicines not working whether you have been irregular or some specific reason. Along with medicine he needs to work onto his thought process and also understand his personality if its in personality might lead to slow improvement. He needs cognitive behavior therapy along with jmpr deep muscle relaxation techniques provided by a qualified clinical psychologist.
