I need to know this? Handjob is going slow down the memory power because I do once per week. Is that good or bad?

Dear Vidyasagar. Welcome to lybrate. Masturbation in limit is not unhealthy and is not going to affect your memory. Thrice or four times a week at your age is considered within limit. Stick to masturbation thrice or four times a week and there is no health issue. Take care.

Any addiction is harmful for the body and so is marijuana. Drink lots of water and fresh fruit and vegetable juices to clear the toxins from your body. Take good sleep for 8-10 hours and exercise for 1 hour atleast 3-4 days a week for a better life.

I am getting mental tension I am getting bp more how can that tension be reduced help me.
Life is full of challenges. See what is the cause of your tension. Are you happy with your family life and what are you studying presently? what are your dreams? decide your goals and try to achieve it step by step. Understand your strengths and try to improve upon your skills. When life is difficult, we have minimum 2 choices - one is - keep complaining and keep failing, second is - take charge of your life and try to face the difficulties, and try to solve it. Make best possible efforts.

What is the effect of moderate alcohol on body and which is the second most common organ effected by alcohol abuse.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
There is probably no danger in moderate consumption. The problem is that what is moderate now may become full-fledged alcoholism because over time you will develop tolerance and dependence and the consumption will increase and you could become addicted. All of us will obviously deny this and have great confidence that that could never happen to you: this is a great fallacy. Facts prove otherwise. Remember everyone started like that and many have ended alcoholics. In relation to the effects of alcohol on the organs in the body, there is no determined path because of the many other factors that affect the body. It is rather safe to say that the brain is the next organ that will be disturbed by alcohol abuse, other conditions being normal.

This is the treatment for him. You did not mention whether your father is diabetic or not. Give Walnut one or two pieces daily, along with the medication feel free to update.

Dear Doctor My son has been suffering from OCD for past more than a year, he tries to clean his TV screen repeatedly and checks his electronic gadgets. Has been under treatment for anxiety, depression and also OCD last two years. Present medication is Fludac, sized on and admenta. Not able to control his OCD and feels stressed all the time, is not able to concentrate and does not like to go to college, please advise. Very tormenting for him as well as his parents.

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Chennai
I can understand the OCD symptoms being severe in intensity along with anxiety and depression. But whatever be the severity OCD symptoms can definitely be brought under control. What is the dose of fludac and sizodon. Admenta doesn't act on OCD symptoms. I am surprised why another OCD reducing ,medication has not been added. I think he needs revision of prescription, kindly take a 2nd opinion, from an experienced psychiatrist, he should be alright. Also, if possible combine CBT and Behavior modification technique from a a clinical psychologist, for better daily functioning. Wishes to your son for speedy remission.

I was not like this before, I hate myself. I have anxiety, has recommended "Tolaz 10 md" I took for 6 months now. I'm tired all day. Test I have done: Brain MRI scan - which was with extreme difficulty because I was unable to bear the sound of the scan machine in my ears and head, EEG, Blood work tablets I have taken: pacitane - which worked that time, now triggers panic attack if I take it. Tolaz 10 md - puts me to sleep, I'm tired all day, taken for 6 months/ have spent most of my savings, now dependent I'am allergic to amoxicillin and sulphur drugs.

Hi, I can understand your worry and also feel the severity of the problem. At 1st for anxiety, tolaz 10 is not the treatment and not even pacitane. Anxiety needs to be explored in detail. The agony of the tests you have undergone is understandable. I can help you out with this. Please take an online consultation on my profile. Thank you.

Dear lybrate-user, Welcome to Lybrate. Brown sugar 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.

Always my husband is not so responsible towards me and my children. He only wants his mother and sister. He treats them very luxurious and I n my children even not the needful. I am very much worried and suffering how he deals with us in our married life of six years. How he will be responsible, I made him the possibility to attend counselling with every matured people, but he blindly after his mother and sister neglecting us. Basic information is about my husband.

Dear Lybrate User, It appears that you feel neglected, hurt and sad. It appears that your husband has certain values and beliefs because of which he thinks that his wife and children have second priority in his life. This is because of his upbringing and his own life experiences. It will be very helpful if you both go to a Professional Counsellor. Do not seek counselling from any family member or friends. It has its limitations. If your husband is not willing to go for couple counselling, then at least you seek help from a Professional Counsellor and start the process. It will help you a lot. Take care.

Yours is not a healthy love at all. Maintain your friendship as such. Maintain neither like nor dislike attitude toward him. Do not bother about believing in or doubting the boys and its not the right time to think over such things. A true love is beyond such things. Love your noble creer of medicine, you will find how foolishly you are being trapped by the so called hormonal influences.

Dear lybrate-user, You seem to be having many symptoms of a serious mental disorder. Of course it will be treatable if diagnosed properly. Please don't get married without treatment. It will add to your burden. With treatment you can find a job and you will not feel others are exploiting you. Please take your mother along to a psychiatrist to give further information to diagnose you. She may help you to co operate with treatment.

I feel really worried for such teenagers who are ruining their and their parents life in fumes.myself is a homoeopath and I assure you that I will give my best in helping your son quit this menace but it can only be done if your son also want to quit this habit.We cannot implements our thoughts on others and especially if children then even more problem.So first ask him to talk to me.I think after talking to me for 10 minutes he will change his perception about smoking and can give a serious thought about quitting this habit.But important aspect is WHETHER HE WANT TO QUIT IT.

How can a spouse of an alcoholic husband recover and support him after his rehabilitation?

Masters in Clinical Psychology & Certified Cognitive Behaviour Therapy Practioner, Certified Neuro linguistic programming Practioner, Masters in Clinical Psychology, Post Graduate Diploma in Child and ADolescent Counselling
Psychologist, Pune
You can be there for your spouse – and help preserve your marriage – by taking the following steps: Educate yourself. Learn about the process of recovery and the risk factors for relapse, and work with your spouse on their relapse prevention plan. Try to understand your spouse’s journey into sobriety and the obstacles and personal torment they’ve faced. Open the lines of communication. Talk to your spouse about the kind of support they need, taking care not to sacrifice your own emotional, physical or mental health. Share your hopes and expectations so that you can work toward the same goals. In counseling, you’ll be able to practice new communication skills and work together to identify and manage feelings. Know that your relationship is going to change. Your spouse’s progress may be slow, or it may be surprisingly quick. They may meet new friends, excel at work and perhaps even outshine you. Allow your spouse some freedom to explore who they are without drugs or alcohol, knowing that a shift in responsibilities and power dynamics can bring greater happiness to your home. Know that you and/or your spouse may consider leaving the marriage. In the process of getting reacquainted, you may feel that you never knew or loved your spouse, or that you no longer have anything in common. The emotional ups and downs of recovery may place a great deal of stress on the relationship, and it can be difficult to repair the damage, particularly if legal or financial problems continue to impact the family. Counseling can help you reconnect and remember why you came together in the first place. Be patient. Even without drugs or alcohol, your spouse may not become the person you’ve always hoped they’d be – at least not quickly. It will take time for them to fulfill family responsibilities, and it may take time for you to be ready to put those responsibilities back in their hands. Work on forgiveness. Partners often have a lot of pain and anger built up after years of dealing with an addicted spouse. Those feelings are unquestionably valid, but holding on to them may prevent you from healing and moving forward. Avoid blame. Remember that addiction is a disease – not a moral failing or lack of willpower – and your spouse likely feels a great deal of shame and guilt for their past behaviors. Praise your spouse’s progress. Encourage them to go to 12-Step meetings and meet with their sponsor any time, even if it’s inconvenient. Prepare for setbacks. Even after completing drug rehab, your spouse may struggle on the path of addiction recovery. Hurdles can range from lying, manipulating and selfishness to full-blown relapse. Don’t take relapse personally. Your spouse’s recovery involves you, but it is really about them. If your spouse falls back into old patterns, continue to lend your support and get them back into drug rehab. Spend time getting to know each other again. You may not recognize the individual you’re living with, but chances are you’ll grow to like this person far more than the person they were under the influence of drugs or alcohol. For most couples with a spouse in addiction recovery, life doesn’t magically fall into place without a lot of hard work by both partners. Recovery can deepen the bonds of marriage, but only if you take care of yourself and each other. Although recovery may be your spouse’s number-one priority right now, there’s an important place for you in the process.

In your age preoccupation about girl boobs and porn is very much common. But if these thoughts come so frequently to impair your day to day functioning in a significant manner, I would suggest you to consult a psychiatrist for remedy. It would be dramatic and relieving. All the best.
