Ask him to join singing class. He will be changed slowly. Thats good Do not expect things fast. Do something where he needs to speak or ask him to be a teacher in a coaching centre. Only 6 months. Then see the result.

I don't want to be a gay. But I m interested to men? what I have to do?

I don't want to be a gay. But I m interested to men? what I have to do?
Well, it's okay that you are interested in men. This means either you have more female members in your family or you have less unisex friends. It is natural that anybody is attracted towards handsome men and beautiful ladies. One another interpretation of this behaviour may be that you unconsciously feel uncomfortable with women due to whatever reasons ; or you feel inferior at some issues. All you do is to boost up your self confidence. Once you would start feeling handsome and confident internally you would be behaving with everybody normally. Don't think that others are looking at you and what they would be saying, instead think that you are looking at others and you are awesome. I hope this works for you.

Hello sir, you asked me to be more clear about my anxiety condition. As I have mentioned earlier that I am asocial person so I have limited people in my life. I was advised by local doctor last year to enhance my social circle try socializing which has only lead to develop some expectations and has made me more social. I have a body shivering problem. I can not figure out the reason of sour relations with everyone including my parents which is disturbing me. Most of the time pessimistic no matter how much I try making it positive. Also have to deal with future oriented anxiety. Its been 6 days of chronic headache due to my decision of quiting smoking. No one is happy with me.

Good Morning ~ I am glad your social anxiety disorder or social phobia is gradually getting better and you are socializing more. Body shivering or tremors can be due to anxiety attacks or panic attacks and this can be easily treated with either therapy or medications. I recommend a combination of both which is more effective. With regards to your parents and your problems with relationship with them I would have to learn more so that I can understand and try to help with your condition a bit better. Underlying depression may be the cause of pessimism and procrastination, along with social phobia. Anticipatory anxiety which is being worried about becoming worried is something which needs to be treated medically.

Depression is a serious mental illness causing significant personal distress and socio-occupational dysfunction. Person suffering from depression experience sadness of mood, low self esteem, poor self confidence, bleak view of future, lack of energy, reduced pleasure in surroundings, altered sleep and appetite. They usually feel themselves helpless and hopeless. Many a time they are unable to take right decision. Few of them commit suicide and many of them suffer for many months with loss of job and earning. If you are having these symptoms, you must take a professional help. I advise you for psychiatric evaluation.

That is because you are obsessed. No problem. Everyone are obsessed with. Especially when something wrong happens. You also do that. But in your case, it is happening every day. That simply means, you are not engaged yourself. You are employed. If you are busy with your job, you will not have time to be obsessive with what happened. Be passionate with your job.

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.

Intend to remember. Remembering well requires that you want to remember. If you have not made a decision to remember what you are reading/studying, you will forget almost immediately. Describe the place where you usually read. (Is it quiet? No TV? No stereo? No talking?) Are you motivated to remember what you read/study? For example, can you give a reason for remembering these ideas: score of the football game directions for "jumping" a dead battery ? when your battery is dead directions for getting to a job interview textbook material for a test Even though you are not interested in the subject you must read about, are you willing to use good reading strategies? Do you preview before you read? Do you ask questions and then read to answer your questions? Don't overload the memory. Seven items is the most our memories can comfortably handle in one bite, but even seven is too much for most people. Your memory prefers to have only three, four, or five things at one time. Therefore, if you need to remember something that has more than four or five items in a group, you will have to break up the group into smaller bites. Understand before you try to remember. If you don't understand something, your memory will have difficulty storing it. Work on understanding before you try to remember. Select the most interesting points. You can't expect to remember everything you read. Select the most important points by looking for answers to questions you have formed. No one can remember everything. If you try to remember every idea, you will probably not remember much of anything. Organize the material to be learned. Your memory works best when the information is organized. Organize first. Use formal or informal outlines or use mapping, and your memory will work for you. You may understand something when you see it, but if your mental filing system isn't working, you may not be able to find the right information when you need it. Relate the ideas to what you already know. Your memory will store new ideas if you relate them to old ideas. Make an association, create a mental picture, or use mnemonic devices to relate unknown information to information you already know. Use mnemonic devices. These memory devices aid memory, but should be simple, clear, and vivid. You remember the unusual, the funny, or both. Rhymes ? This method uses rhyming words to help you remember. Example: "I before E, except after C, or when sounded like A, as in neighbor and weigh." Acronyms ? A word made from the first letters of other words aids memory. Examples: "I. R. Soul" from the 6 strategies for better memory I ? Intend to remember R ? Relate the information S ? Select important ideas O ? Organize the details U ? Understand the ideas L ? Limit the amount "PRELIMINARY" to help police officers remember what steps to follow when called to the scene of a crime P ? Proceed to the scene. R ? Render assistance to the injured. E ? Effect the arrest of the perpetrator. L ? Locate and identify witnesses. I ? Interview complainant and witnesses. M ? Maintain the scene and protect evidence. I ? Interrogate suspects. N ? Note all conditions, events, and remarks. A ? Arrange for collection of evidence. R ? Report the incident fully and accurately. Y ? Yield Responsibility to detectives. Sentences ? Memory sentences are made where the first letters of words in the sentence are the same as the first letters of words that need to be recalled. Examples: "I Remember So Little Unless Organized."- from the first letter of each of the 6 strategies of memory (listed previously). "Please Excuse My Dear Aunt Sally."- for the order of operations in a math problem (parentheses, exponents, multiplication, division, addition, subtraction). Mnemonic devices are handy when studying for tests, but they should not be used as a substitute for understanding. Test yourself repeatedly. Memorize the material through repeated self-testing. Look at the first item in your notes; then look away and try to repeat it to yourself. After you learn each new item, go back and test yourself on all the previous items. Over learn the material. If you study a subject beyond the time needed for perfect recall, you will increase the length of time that you will remember it. Study before going to bed, but not ON your bed! Study thoroughly the material to be learned. Then go right to sleep without watching a late movie or allowing other activities to interfere with your new learning. Your mind will work to absorb much of the material during the night. In the morning spend a few minutes reviewing to solidly fix the material in your memory.Ask privately if you need help

Dear lybrate-user, please write whether you have visited the doctor recently and discussed with her/him your problems of sexual desires and your plan of getting married. If you have not done it, please go back and discuss. He may change the medicines or order blood test for prolactin levels or add another medicine. He may even advise you to postpone your plan of marriage for few more months. Till then please do not stop sizopride 100 mg. For increase of hair growth anywhere including beard also the same treatment. Go back to the same doctor and check prolactin level in blood. If you are still not happy, get back on private consultation with me online with all old prescriptions and a summary of your 5 years treatment, diagnosis, blood checks, earning capacity, family structure, marriage proposals etc.

Many people behave well before marriage because they don't want to lose the other person. You will also do the same thing. But after marriage they show their true nature: sometimes that very night, sometimes a week later and sometimes even years later. If he is showing his true nature now itself and you don't like it, call it off. May be he does not care enough and feels an advantage over you and is willing to act so. This may be a sign that he thinks too much about himself. This is not a good sign. so try him out and if you see more and more of his arrogance, I suggest that you call it off. In the fist few years couples normally go through a power struggle to decide who is going to be the boss. It seems like he wants to establish that he is the one who wears the pants in the house. If you like him despite that then it may be ok. You can decide from what I am saying how to go about it, isn't it?

Dear lybrate user. Welcome to lybrate. I can understand. Loosing someone near and dear 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. Anyhow, there is nothing to worry. Most of the psychological problems can be cured with scientific therapy methods. Take care.
