Dear lybrate-user, You are having depressive symptom currently. You do not need stress for depression to occur. Depression also occur in hypothyroidism, vit b12 and vit D3 deficiency. Get your thyroid test done first. We will plan to start antidepressant medication once we talk to you. You can start brisk walking in morning, maintain your sleep and wakeup time and get yourself involved in small projects like learning new musical instrument or any thing which you like. All of these thing will help you. All d best.

My father lives in anger. His age is 61 years. His bp is normal. What should we do to controll his anger. Please tell me.

Hypnotherapist, DCS, BSIC, Advanced Trainee of Transactional Analysis, Advanced Skills in Counselling
Psychologist,
He would be getting angry for various reasons. At that age there are various losses connected to health, power, work, prestige etc. Such losses can make a person sad, angry, afraid etc. Counselling helps in such cases to help the person understand the changes happening with growing age and coping and managing with them more effectively without getting angry and aggressive. In your fathers case, both individual counselling to help him manage his anger and family therapy so that the family members can understand each other better and support each other when going through a rough time.

It is your psychological feeling. Masturbation is a healthy habit. It is not at all caused for erectile dysfunction. But after masturbation there is no chance of erection. If we want to enjoy to see your erection, then stop masturbation one week then erection starts. Masturbation and continuous erection both are not possible. First you stop masturbation. Then erection starts. There is now mistake of masturbation. But when press severely then normal erection stops. You need to press again. So why you worry. Better to stop masturbation. Of if you unable then continue. Ok.

Dear lybrate user. If the girl in question is from a good and sound family, and if they are reasonably cultured, your parents are bound to agree after some fuss and cry. Tell them boldly. Make them understand that you are serious. Take care.

Hi Sir/Mam, Am a smoking guy. Am smoking past 12 years regularly. Now I go to got married by next two months so I want to stop the habit. Pls advice me.

Psychologist, Pune
Hello quit it now and focus on your health. Make it your goal not just coz of your marriage. Exercises and drinking of lot water and sharing will help do not worry too much about it. Avoid triggers like tea/coffee particular food items etc which will give you the urge to smoke avoid friends who smoke. Set a reminder in your mobile every one hour saying you do not have to smoke indulge in hobbies spen more time building relations. Read listen to nice music eat ice cream. Gud health proper intake of food positive mindset gud sleep and exercises will help you.

I think I have a more of a mental or a psychological problem. I cannot open up my feelings with other people whether they may be my family or friends. Also I keep constantly lying to them for no apparent reason. I think I need some help in this part. Also my attitude towards any work is not serious at all. I need to improvise on that. Any good suggestions?

You must be able to distinguish between mental disease and mental disorder. Your problem is a mental disorder. Not a mental disease. Therefore no medicines are required. Mental disorder can be successfully treated with the help of awareness, meditation, psychotherapy techniques, life style changes etc. I think two or three counseling sessions and psycho therapy techniques should solve your problem. Let me know if you are willing to undergo counseling sessions and tailor made psycho therapy through mobile. Take care.

Hi, I was an occasional drinker. However off late my drinking has increased and now I drink almost everyday. Eventhough my intake is something like 2 beers at most a day, I have it almost every day. I would like to restrict this habit and be a social drinker. How can I prevent myself from being a full blown alcoholic and control this urge for alcohol.

Hello, this daily drinking habit will lead to dependency. Not sure since hoe long you are having alcohol on daily basis. Find out the triggering factor for alcohol consumption and try to solve it. Do you get craving for alcohol? if you have withdrawal symptoms I would advice you to meet nearby psychiatrist and get treated. You can have dinner before your usual time of drinking which would reduce your craving. Avoid going out with bad company. Spend quality time with family. Try to wake up early morning and practice yoga, breathing exercise, jogging, meditation etc which will keep you motivated. Start taking b complex tablets.

I am 22 years old and currently doing pg in physics. I have the problem that I usually feel frightened to speak in front of a gathering, and the problem only becomes worse if there are women around. Like I somehow don't feel comfortable in classroom and ask questions to the teacher. I always feel uncomfortable to speak to the girls when they come to for help or to discuss anything. I feel awkward (become red faced and sweat) if people look at me when I speak, but there is no such problem if there is complete darkness or there are only a few known people around. I have always been a bright student with thousands of successes to cheer about but this problem somehow doesn't allow me to enjoy my hard earned successes. Now I am in a fix what to do. I was thinking about taking sbl tranquil. please let me know if it is gonna help.

Stammering is not a disease it's always related to your psyche. Stammering is a normal phenomena it happens to all in different life situations. All have fears, anxieties while talking to strangers, opposite gender or seniors. But god has gifted us with coping mechanisms which help us to deal with such fears or anxieties. If one lag to cope in such situations stammering increases n becomes uncontrollable this is where the problem starts. So try to be confident and never avoid any situation where you feel under confident. Let stammering happen rather than avoiding talking in a particular situation or with someone. It will boost your confidence. Try to consult a good speech pathologist/ therapist. Speech therapy along with counseling will be of greater help. Try to speak slow and boost up your confidence. Talk to all avoid none. Take care.

You are a nice person and able to take correct course. All you need is guidance so that you can reach your goals in life that are higher than saying -i love you- to your friend! if possible, tell your parents that you need to see a psychologist. Sittings with a psychologist will definitely help you offload all your tensions, stress, worries. But, it will cost per sitting-if your parents can pay, good. Else, start doing pranayaam as taught by baba ramdev daily on astha channel 5.00 to 7.30 am. Very very effective- esp anulom-vilom and bramri and udgit are a must. You will get miraculous results for free and without adverse effects of allopathic medicines and will gain good physical and mental health, increase in your stamina, good concentration, improved memory, etc. Your mind will become focused and stop wandering. You will be able to move on.

Relationship is between two individuals, who are different in there mental make-up and different demands from a relationship. May be your friend is airy and mercurial in nature who is restless and looking for change all the time. And you demand more stability, are more possessive and want more of his attention with your smaller social circle than him. Neither he will change nor you, can a middle ground be found. You must consider this before entering a formal relationship!

How Having Siblings Can Keep You Positive and Healthy?

CST Psychiatry, DNB (PSYCHIATRY), MD - Psychiatry, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Delhi
How Having Siblings Can Keep You Positive and Healthy?

In most Indian homes, a family is not complete with just one child. Until about a couple of decades ago, a family with a single child was very rare. The most common response would be 'with whom the child will play'. Between the siblings, there is always so much love. Starting from getting attention from the parent to education at all stages of life, this is one relationship which just grows and grows. While it definitely is a feel-good factor, scientifically too, it has been proven to have multiple benefits.

Read on to know some benefits of having siblings and how it can help you stay healthy and positive.

  1. A constant companion: With a sibling around, there is no need to look for a play or study companion. There is always one available right in the same home. This provides for a happy, healthy equation with a lot of give and take that just extends through life.
  2. Continuous learning environment: With a sibling around, the learning never stops. There is a constant teacher/mentor-student relationship with the elder one having an upper hand and trying to teach the younger one all sorts of things from using a chalk to spoon to math to magic.
  3. Sharing begins at home: Whether it is your toys or colours, stationary or chocolates, siblings share a lot of stuff and so from a very young age, there is a behaviour that encourages sharing of all sorts of things. Studies have shown that children with siblings show a lot more sympathy and are more open to sharing things as compared to single children.
  4. Builds selflessness: The next time you see two siblings, notice how the elder one is always so protective of the younger one. The elder one is willing to give up their chocolate just so the younger one smiles. Similarly, the younger one also would give up a toy so that the elder one is happy. This selflessness is ingrained in children with siblings, which extends into their other relationships too later in life.
  5. Tougher individuals: Problem solving is something which gets built in early in life when children have siblings. This comes in handy later in life too, which makes them tougher individuals. They are also better skilled at negotiating, good at setting and achieving goals, managing relationships (both professional and personal), and are so more successful.

The relationship with a sibling just continues through life. The above are some pointers as to how having a sibling makes for a happy, healthier, and positive life. Anyone with a sibling would definitely vouch for these!!

I get anger very soon and infact for a very small reason and sometimes for no reason please help me.

Dear, I highly recommend that you seek help. These are tough issues to work on by yourself. The medications may have triggered a negative reaction for you and the unresolved grief could be making your anger more intense. *One of the golden rules of therapy is that if you can change your thinking and perceptions/interpretations of things you can then change your feelings and behavior. You can’t really change your feelings without understanding the thoughts underlying them and you are generally more successful in changing behaviors if you have some insight into why you do what you do. I hope you find help soon and I hope you can learn to live in a more peaceful and focused way. Good luck.
