Dear lybrate user. I can understand. At your age, memory problems like amnesia, dementia etc are not possible. You could forget the location of items after keeping it somewhere. This is normal and happens with almost everyone. This forgetting happens due to preoccupation with other priorities or obsessive thinking. I suggest online counselling and cognitive behavior therapy. Take care.

Dear Lybrate User Getting involved into a sexual relationship with your partner is completely a couples decision. You both are adults and mature enough to take up decisions. Just remember that take your decision wisely as every decision will bring it's own consequences. If you made up a choice then also be prepared to handle it's repercussions. As partners you both need to talk to each other about each other worries and concerns. You both need to discuss about important ingredients of a relationship. Physical intimacy is important in a relationship but it's not the only thing that builds up the relationship. Both partners need to understand each other's priorities and needs. They need to value each other's decisions too. So have a dialogue with your partner. Lastly but very important thing is to discuss things with a gynaecologist. Take proper guidance from her. Clarify all your queries regarding your body with her. If you wish, you can also take your partner along when visiting or discussing things with her. All the best.

My husband's marital affair. i am depressed since 17 year. I take madicine fludac20mg. Please guide me ?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

I know that this is a very painful blow to your trust and self-image. If this had happened 17 years ago but is not being repeated, you must forgive him for your own sake more than for him and learn to carry on in life. You are living in misery and on medication, while the perpetrator (your husband) may be living quite comfortably, unperturbed. It does not make sense to continue your suffering because of him. Take life into your hands and prove to yourself that you are greater than these events. Your lingering in the past can only make you worse. Meet with a counselor and talk about your feelings and problems regularly until you are out of it completely. Then do regular exercise, socialize and make new friends, join a club, do some courses, live life well. Learn, through therapy, to love your husband for who he is now, and consider his misdemeanor an aberration under some impulsive influences. If you live with him, live well or live not with him at all. You must not remain in a painful situation when there are so many different things that you can do besides. Have him take you out for trips, tours and small outings and live a new life with him but with pleasure. The therapist will certainly help you with all this. In my opinion you could even come out off of the medication, if you leave all this to the past (where it really belongs), and make a new beginning.

Depression adversely affects every aspect of our lives – including our relationships – and when one partner is depressed, the relationship may suffer badly. Depression can cause adverse effects on any activity that requires energy, spontaneity and good co-ordination – and that includes sex. And, sadly, lots of individuals who are depressed often appear to lose interest in sex. •In men, the general damping down of brain activity causes feelings of tiredness and hopelessness, which may be associated with loss of libido and erection problems. Some days will seem better than others. On your better days, try to make an effort to show love and appreciation to your partner. •Try to go for a walk every day, preferably with your partner. Walking not only gets you out in the fresh air, but, like other forms of exercise, it releases endorphins in the brain. These are 'happy' chemicals that rapidly elevate your mood. And there's considerable evidence to suggest that exercise can be as good for combating depression as any antidepressant. •Even during your saddest periods, try to spot happy moments like a bird singing or a new flower blooming in your garden. Try to train yourself to notice three of these heart-warming moments per day. •You may have an odd relationship with food while you're depressed (you could have little appetite or constantly comfort eat), but try to eat five pieces of fruit per day. This is a caring thing to do for yourself and is good for your physical and mental health. •Listen to music that matters to you. •Have faith that the depression will pass and that you will enjoy your life again. •Even if you don't feel like full-on sex, do make the effort to have a cuddle. If you are worried that cuddling will project you into full sex when you don't want it, just tell your partner that you're not feeling like having sex, but that you would really like to cuddle up. If you do this, you may both feel a lot better. Touch and closeness can keep a relationship. Regards,

I am suffering from Borderline Personality Disorder - Coupled with depression. Please Advice

I am suffering from Borderline Personality Disorder - Coupled with depression. Please Advice
It can be very good if you are cooperative and follow it through. The BPD is long term, and involves a lot of therapy and regular medication from a psychiatrist. Because you are fairly young your prognosis will be better. Also where there is good family support and they are willing to be involved, much work can be achieved. But you must combine medication with counseling very seriously. There will be a tendency to hoodwink the therapist and that is going to be your nemesis. Be forewarned and refrain from acting on your impulses. You can follow these simple rules to handle the depression: Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber, nuts, avocado, exercise regularly, eat dark chocolate, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. I suggest you do the opposite of what this depression makes you feel like doing (actually, not doing): you will need to fight this condition. You must become active; stay upright during the daylight time; meet people; never sleep during the day, wake up by 6 am every day, play some active games, especially contact games, do physical exercises, talk to people and join some social clubs, attend Yoga classes etc. Watch sitcoms on TV or comedies and cheer yourself up. Go for excursions in groups, for outings, camps, conferences, and religious conventions. Get a pet dog and spend time training it, exercising it and relating to it. Expose yourself to some sunlight every day, at least 30 minutes but not in the scotching heat. Whatever happens, please incorporate these three important adaptations in your life: always be responsible, be respectful, and be functional. If you did these three, lots of things will go well in life. Please pray and have faith in God to alleviate your sufferings. Don’t wait for others to help. Use your own motivation, which might be at its lowest, but persevere and win this battle. Above all to be really happy, you need to live in love and for love: find someone to love and to love you back. A counselor is there only to facilitate you, all the hard word must come from you, and your cooperation with that person is very critical for your success. Be positive everyday and learn to be contended with what you have. Do some left brain exercises: it is the happy brain. Here are a few suggestions: shut your left nostril and breathe, move your eyes from right to left and vice versa for at least half a minute at a time, and do callisthenic exercises with some form of counting, regularly.

No they are safe drugs, but do not seem to be from a standard company, seems local ones. Get the same from a good company, ask your psychiatrist for it. Also you need to stop the Ona 0.5 mg after some time because that is not advisable on a longer run. All the best.

I am 26 year old man. I am suffering from psychological problem from last 1 year. My girl friend broke up with me (but I had not broke with her) 1 year back. Somehow I manage the situation and move on in life. But she keep on calling me 2-3 times month and some time 2-3 time a week also. Whenever I talked to her all past memories recollected in my mind & I goes into depression as it is impossible for me to talk to her as friend only. If I do not pick her call then I become anxious & restless & start thinking that may be she needed my help. Best thing is she never call me or text me but this is not happening. I had told her 3-4 times to not call me as I can not talk to you as friend only but she never listened to me. Please help me as I can't scold her or treat her badly. Thanks in advance.

As long as you keep talking to her, taking her calls and keeping contact with her, you will not be able to move on. If you want to get over her and move on with your life, a clean break is advised. Ending a relationship is difficult enough but staying in touch with your ex girlfriend will keep your focus on her constantly. Take a hard look at why you are maintaining contact with her. She doesn't seem to be interested in getting back with you but is just contacting you when she wants something. This situation is keeping you stuck in a vicious cycle. Take a decision and break the pattern.

What's the reason of mental disease? Whats the reason of obsessive compulsive disorder? Give me answer in detail. Plz.thank you.

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Chennai
Psychiatric illnesses occur due to bio-psycho-social reasons. Biological is your brain neurons and functioning, psychological are the factors during your developmental stage and sociological are the external environment/ people/ job/ stress u r exposed to. So it is multifactorial for various disorders, each contributing in varying proportion. For OCD, there is altered serotonergic ( a neurotransmitter) transmission in certain brain areas as the main reason.

Hi doctor, I want to quit smoking. Shall I get any medicine for that. Please let me know.

Fellow Observership, Certificate in Forensic Psychology, MD-Psychiatry, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Akola
Hello, smoking is one of the easiest & one of the most difficult habits to break because 1. Quitting cigarettes does not cause any immediate harm 2. Cigarettes are so easily available that one does succumbs into temptation of smoking just 1 more before stopping altogether. Regarding your question, easy way is decide a quit date 1 week from now & reduce the number of cigarettes you smoke to half from today. Secondly, you can purchase nicotex/quitsure park & suck type nicotine chewing gums to take care of your cigarette craving & substitute them for cigarettes. For smoking & related query, do as I suggested. Afterwards get back to me after 1 week for next plan of action. Good luck.

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. If you?re ready to stop smoking and willing to get the support you need, you can recover from nicotine addiction and abuse abuse?no matter how bad the addiction or how powerless you feel. The first step in treating nicotine 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 smoking. Therefore, you need to stick to the treatment plan and cooperate with your psychiatrist / psychologist. Take care.

I am 19 year old male. I have these headaches, these are due to gastric problem or tension. My eyes start paining very easily after using laptop for few minutes and sometime I also have this anxiety problem. Like sometime when I am with my friends or family. It feels like am I really belong here, and then it become hard to breath. And I also have this suicidal mind more than 10 times a day I feel like ending my life. I already lost interest in my classes/studies. I do not like to do anything new. And sometime I become depressed but sometime not very frequently. So I am asking that it is possible that these all problems are made up by my brain. Because when I become angry I harm myself like I punch on the wall, or scratch myself till bleeding or beat myself up with stick. That make my headache low. But sometime I do it these thing without any situation. Sometime my hand shake, I think that is due to my smoking habit but I am not chain smoker. So please tell me is there any problem or just my mind playing with me.

You are indulging in self-harm which is providing you temporary relief from headache. Has something traumatic happened in your early life? I will suggest you to visit a psychiatrist as soon as possible. You may need some medications to stabilize before you can begin with psychotherapy. You need to go for counselling to talk about the real issues bothering you deep inside. Do help yourself.

Hi lybrate-user. Usually a male's height grows till 20-21 years of age, so this may not be your final height. Our height depends on two things - genetics and nutrition. You cannot do anything about the former. For nutrition you can increase the amount of protein in your diet to boost your growth. Stretching exercises like skipping, jumping may help, though there is no scientific proof of it. Most of all you need to know that your height is not at all abnormal. You fall within the range of an average indian male's height. The amount of distress you are expressing at something normal is concerning! no one becomes attractive because they are tall or fair or muscular or any other feature of their body. Attractiveness comes with personality. Focus on developing a healthy and happy personality. People like individuals who are kind, calm, confident and happy. You are just 17. You can learn so many things, do so much. Develop your skills and personality. For your height, you can always wear shoes with a little heel.
