Dear Lybrate user. Satisfaction with the relationship is very important for our well being. If somebody has major or minor issues with his her relationship then it leads to stress and depressive feelings. But most important in a relationship is communication. If you and your partner are not having open communication then it will lead to problems. Communication can resolve all the misunderstandings so try have a active conversation with your partner. Rest you need to provide more specific details about your problems to get more specific solutions. Feel free to get in touch for any help. Take Care.

Dear lybrate user. Welcome to lybrate. I can understand. Loosing someone near and dear from a deep relationship like love affair is called grief and depression related to grief is pretty normal. But this sort of depression does not stay for long. This depression gets cleared within a span of some weeks. The best option for you is to undergo counseling and depression related therapy. Take care.

Tips to Overcome Sexual Shyness

MD - General Medicine
Sexologist, Nashik
Tips to Overcome Sexual Shyness

While getting together in bed is something that everyone fantasizes or thinks about, when it comes to the actual act of being with a partner, shyness and inhibitions may stop you from actually having a god experience. While some factors for shyness can be physical, in most cases, they border on emotional and psychological problems.

Factors that might cause sexual shyness:
Some of the factors that cause sexual shyness could be:

  1. A fear arising from lack of experience
  2. A low self esteem
  3. Bad encounters and experiences in the past
  4. Body image issues

These are all factors, which can be changed and controlled with a slight change in your thinking and conditioning yourself in certain ways.

Overcoming sexual shyness with a partner: 
While most people have active fantasies about sex, when it comes to a one on one experience, many people feel out of their comfort zone. Let's look at a few mental and thought conditioning exercises that can help you counter sexual shyness.

  1. Don't have major expectations: One of the biggest issues with mostly men and to some extent women, is that they have elaborate fantasies, which don't come true in the real world and thus aren't prepared to handle real life sexual situation when they come up. Thus you should preferably have a no expectation approach.
  2. Ensure that the surroundings are comfortable: If you are having a hurried encounter or in a situation you aren't comfortable in, it might lead to bad experience, which will keep manifesting every time you have sexual encounters. Thus make sure that your surroundings are comfortable and you are relaxed before the act.
  3. Don't let physical shortcomings scare you: Both men and women tend to be very conscious about their bodies. If you have to be naked in front of someone, you may feel even more self conscious. Stop feeling bad or sorry for yourself because of your body. No human being is perfect and if the other person wants to be with you in bed, they will ignore any physical imperfections that you think you may have.
  4. Think about the act and prepare: Remember that you are with a person and not with a fantasy. Once you are comfortable with a person and usually after a few times, you can then try fantasies and role playing. Initially think about the act before in your head and feel excited in its anticipation.
  5. Enjoy the build up and the foreplay: Sex isn't just the penetrative part, but all the fun section like kissing and foreplay that build up to it. Go slow and enjoy those sections as well and you will automatically be aroused enough to a point where inhibitions will go away.

I want to stop drinking alcohol and I want stop smoking also please give suggestion.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You must, on a war footing, exercise restraint and stop the use of all these substances. Since you have probably tried and found it extremely difficult I suggest you do one of the following: It sounds like you are in an advanced stage of alcoholism and tobacco use and need admission to a rehabilitation center to ideally help deal with this problem. There are no guarantees about stopping one’s addiction. But that does not mean we should not keep at it, over and over again until we succeed. Now it is difficult to give up all by yourself because you have become addicted to alcohol and tobacco and there is so much to do. Under such circumstances it is best that you admit yourself into a de-addiction center and stay there for at least 6 months and after that you can attend counseling with a professional. There are medicines that help with the drinking just to ease the initial craving and to act as an antabuse i.e. you will have a serious reaction, if you consume even a small quantity of alcohol or alcohol based substances. It has to be carefully monitored to see that you do not only consume the medication but you are also avoiding alcohol. Ultimately, it is your will power and the support that you receive from the medical fraternity and your close and dear ones. You 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 you on several measures and precautions you will need to take to stay with your resolve. Even after the rehabilitation you 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. You cannot be treated in isolation because the family has gotten used to your drinking in particular and have made some unhealthy adaptations to somehow cope. Make a serious plan with whoever else’s support you can get and act on it fast. If you are not cooperative, there are some centers that will come and pick you up, after you are completely drunk, and admit you by force. This will however, require the wife and family’s consent. Do not delay for any reason and stop fooling around with half decisions.

General Physician,
10 Study Tips to Improve Your Learning Study Tip 1: Underlining Underlining is one of the simplest and best known study tips. It’s easy to highlight the most significant parts of what you’re reading. One key sentence per paragraph and a few important phrases here and there. You can only retain a certain amount so it’s best to retain the most important information. Study Tip 2: Make your own note and taking notes is one of the most widespread study skills out there. Essentially the aim of note-taking is to summarise lectures or articles in your own words so you can easily remember the ideas. Study Tip 3: Mind mapping A good Mind map can save you many hours of study and further consolidate your knowledge for your exams. Mind Maps are an extremely versatile tools. They can be used for brainstorming, outlining essays or study topics and for general exam preparation, ExamTime offers the ability to create Mind Maps quickly and easily which makes them the ideal tool when it comes to exams. Study Tip 4: Flash cards:- Using these are a particularly effective method of learning when trying to assimilate different facts, dates, formulas or vocabulary. Subjects such as History, Physics, Maths, Chemistry, Geography or any language are made much easier if you incorporate Flashcards in to your study. Study Tip 5: Case Studies Sometimes it can be difficult to grasp the implications of some theories. This is where studying case studies can be a big help. Case studies can help you visualise a theory and place it in a more familiar and realistic context. This is especially useful in business or law subjects. Study Tip 6: Quizzes are an excellent way to review study notes in the weeks and days before an exam. Quizzes can show where your strengths and weaknesses are, so it allows you to focus your efforts more precisely. Moreover, if you share your Study Quiz with your classmates and test each other as much as possible you can discover even more details and areas you may have overlooked. So before any exam, make sure you create and share a bunch of different Quizzes with your Friends. Study Tip 7: Brainstorming This is another study technique that is ideal for studying with friends and/or classmates. Brainstorming is a great way to expand every possible idea out of any topic. Just get a bunch of friends together and shoot the breeze, there are no wrong answers when brainstorming – just talk and capture the ideas, you can review afterward. Study Tip 8: Mnemonic Rules Mnemonics are especially useful when memorising lists and sets. Mnemonics rules basically work by associating certain concepts with other concepts that are more familiar to us. There are many different ways to make mnemonics and these can be individual to the person. Study Tip 9: ORGANISE your study One of the most effective study skills is also one of the most often overlooked; this is organising your study. Creating a TIME TABLE gives you goals and a time in which to achieve them. Having a study timetable as you study is greatly motivational Study Tip 10: Drawing Many people find it easier to recall images rather than text that is why they are better able to memorise concepts if they associate them with pictures or drawings. If you find answer helpful please click on “helpful” tab for knowing my efforts are useful CONCENTRATION TIPS Here’s some tips to get into a state of deep concentration where work / or studies flow easily so that you can do well in examinations/ and or do your work well. 1) Cut Off the Noise Getting into a state of concentration can take at least fifteen minutes. If you are getting distracted every five, you can’t possibly focus entirely on your work. Request that people don’t interrupt you when working on a big project. If you are required to answer phones and drop-in’s immediately, schedule work when the office is less busy. 2) Structure Your Environment The place you work can have an impact on your ability to focus. Try to locate yourself so you are facing potential distractions such as doors, phones or windows. This way you can take a glance to assess sounds that would otherwise break your focus. 3) Clarify Objectives Know what your goal is clearly before you start. If you aren’t sure what the end result is, the confusion will make it impossible to focus. 4) Divide Blobs. If you have a large project that needs work, clearly identify a path that you will use to get started working on it. If the sequence of actions isn’t obvious, it will be difficult to concentrate. Taking a few minutes to plan not only your end result, but the order you will complete any steps, can save hours in wasted thinking. 5) Know the Rules Get clear on what the guidelines are for the task ahead. What level of quality do you need? What standards do you need to follow? What constraints are there? If the rules aren’t clear from the outset, you will slip out of concentration as you ponder them later. 6) Set a Deadline Deadlines have both advantages and disadvantages when trying to force concentration. A deadline can make it easier to forget the non-essential and speed up your working time. If you give yourself only an hour to design a logo, you will keep it simple and avoid fiddling with extravagant designs. Time limits have disadvantages when they cause you to worry about the time you have left instead of the task itself. 7) Break down Roadblocks Roadblocks occur whenever you hit a tricky problem in your work. This can happen when you run out of ideas or your focus wavers. Break down roadblocks by brainstorming or planning on a piece of paper. Writing out your thought processes can keep you focused even if you might become frustrated. 8) Isolate Yourself Become a hermit and stay away from other people if you want to get work done. Unless your work is based on other people they will only break your focus. Create a private space and refuse to talk to anyone until your work is finished. Put a sign on your door to steer away drop-ins and don’t answer your phone. 9) Healthy Body, Sharper Mind What you put into your body affects the way you concentrate. Nobody would expect peak performance if they showed up drunk to work. But if you allow yourself to get chronic sleep deprivation, overuse stimulants like caffeine or eat dense, fatty foods your concentration will suffer. Try to cut out one of your unhealthy habits for just thirty days to see if there is a difference in your energy levels. I’ve found even small steps can create dramatic changes in my ability to focus. 10) Be Patient Before I write an article, I often sit at my desk for a fifteen or twenty minutes before I put finger on the keyboard. During this time I feel a strong urge to leave or do something else. But I know that if I am patient, I’ll stumble upon an idea to write about and enter a state of flow. Without a little patience, you can’t take advantage of flow when it rushed through you. If you need strong concentration I recommend periods of 90-120 minutes. Any less than that and you will waste too much time getting started before the flow can continue. More than this is possible to sustain focus, but you will probably benefit from a quick break. These are the general guidelines for concentration, studying well or doing your job. Regards.

50 is an age where the body really starts slowing down. Your wife might be going through lot of hormonal changes. She might be noticing that her body is aging faster now. This might be difficult for her to accept. She needs to slow down as far as her household chores are concerned. People at home need to help her. Also talk to her and encourage her to share her feelings, her worries etc. Just listening to her will make her feel better. Encourage her to go for a general routine medical check up as well.

If you haven't had a professional diagnosis yet then please don't say that you have depression because the thought sits in the mind and takes deep roots and even if you didn't have depression you will start showing symptoms of it gradually. Please get a proper diagnosis from a psychiatrist and also see a counsellor for cbt therapy meant for reducing the rumination and irrational and unhealthy thoughts and beliefs about self others and various situations. Eating a healthy and we'll balanced diet is an important recovery tool from depression as the brain and mind both function well if it received enough lean proteins, vitamins, minerals and omega 3 fatty acids. Adequate amount of exercise release natural anti depressants like serotonin, tryptophan and norepinephrin in the brain to maintain mental and emotional equilibrium. Sleeping regularly for 7-8hours is a must for the body and mind to recover from daily stress. Learning how to deal and cope with tough life situations is very important so that you feel confident of living the life of your choice. Having a healthy social circle and a satisfying hobby is important for feelings of accomplishment and acceptance in the society.

Sir my uncle age 57 years old they have useing alchohal in very big value what can we to leave this bad habbit.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
If you think that he will find it very difficult, then admit him to a hospital and go for de-addiction: which normally lasts for about two weeks. Then follow that up with addiction counseling from a professional for at least three years to completely get rid of the habit. If this is also not enough, then admit him into a de-addiction center and let him stay there for at least 6 months and after that attend counseling with a professional. There are medicines that help with the drinking just to ease the initial craving. 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 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. His 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. His children 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 they are genetically predisposed to alcoholism or can have cross addiction problems and they 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. If your uncle refuses to go for rehabilitation, then some centers have a method of picking him up when he is totally sloshed and is not able to fight back effectively. They will need the family? s written consent before willing to take him in this manner. Make a serious plan with the wife and children and whoever else? s support he can get and act on it fast.

Shivering is a part of physiological manifestation of anxiety. It can just be a normal trait which if is an isolated presentation may not actually require treatment. However, given that you have had multiple such attacks, it may indicate towards an anxiety condition of which there are many. For a proper treatment, the trigger for anxiety, frequency, type of clinical presentation, associated medical conditions etc need to be identified and keeping all these things in consideration, then a suitable form of treatment has to be decided which can be just a simple relaxation technique or a behavioral intervention, CBT technique or psychopharmacological intervention or a combination of some of these. Best call for you would be not to diagnose the issue by yourself which several people try to do and instead visit a qualified psychiatrist. Mostly a proper treatment will relieve you of your symptoms. Wish you all the best.

Homeopath, Faridabad
Hello, Your wife may be going through hard phase or going through some kind of stress or she may have so many responsibilities, so that she remains busy doing household work and don't get enough time to take care of self or else no one bothers about her and takes her for granted! You should interact with your wife to find out the cause. Most of the time, it's seen that among these common causes one of the cause is there. Practicing yoga with homoeopathic medication will help her in releasing the stress from your body. Brisk walk in a park will help her inhale more fresh air and oxygen for good functioning of the cells and tissues of the body. Medication: Give her homoeopathic - Schwabe’s Bacopa Monierri 1x/ thrice daily and Kali Phos. 6x/ once at night. Yogasana: Practice the following poses if she doesn’t has any other 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 Doctor. I am not able to clear up my confusion and figure out the aim of my life and passion. I have work experience of 10 years but I am mediocre when it comes to putting efforts. I am distracted by many things around and I spend too much time on thinking within myself.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

It appears likely that you may be in the wrong profession or career. If you are not showing the interest in a particular job and not growing either, then it is quite suggestive of your being in a field that does not match your aptitude. You must meet with a career guidance counselor and do the tests for aptitude and career guidance and determine what you are actually made for. These counselors may not be willing to do a test at this late time in your life but do request them and they will if you put sufficient pressure. When this has been done you can see with the counselor’s help how to incorporate your aptitude with the current job that you are doing and make a suitable ‘adjustment’ so that various lose strings can be drawn together and a suitable job opening with your present qualification can be accommodated. Introspection is good if you are focused on a particular idea for development. If not, it will serve no purpose other than extending your problems to overwhelming levels.

I have a problem. I'm not able to speak with girls seeing their eyes. Please help me to get rid of this habit

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You lack confidence around girls. You probably become too self-conscious, and for some reason underrate yourself. The greatest problem I notice with some men with this type of problem is the discomfort of talking to girls, assuming that there is something sexual. This is a perception unfortunately in our society. It is not normal. You are a nice tall, strapping man, and girls will love to be in your company, without any secret or sexual agenda. So, dispel that idea out of your head, you will feel a lot more at ease talking to them looking into their eyes. Don?t encourage any other ideas in your head but that I am talking to a girl and she is my sister who needs my respect. Incidentally, the eye-to-eye contact does have a little intimidation to it because it feels like the person can see deep into you and you are all exposed. This is fortunately a total fallacy and the belief can make you uncomfortable. In my profession I have to look directly into the eyes of my counselors and I wish I can find out all of that person's secrets! It is just not possible. So face the girl and talk to her. In fact, many girls will mistakenly feel that you are shady, perhaps hiding something unpleasant, or have ulterior purposes. Would you want them to believe in all those lies! On the other hand, if you look them into the eye, they will feel that they can trust you, and that you are a safe person. What a contrast!

Dexamaethasone can produce mood disorder, you r right. Discuss this side effect with your doc, and ask for alternative. If this is very much essential for your survival or well being, you need to concurrently consult a psychiatrist and take a mood stabilizer along with it.

Of course, psychoses may have the chances of genetic transmission. If your wife's other physical conditions are normal, the chances for her to carry and give birth to a child is also equal to that of normal women. But, if you are willing to dedicate and involve yourself in giving her the emotional, financial and physical support, and help her get proper psychiatric and other treatments periodically your chances of getting a normal baby is brighter.
