You seem to be having high expectations fro your first night and your husbnd. And you are thoroughly disappointed that this is how your sex life will be? well to ally your doubts, it looks like that your husband hasn't got any experience of having sex before (which might mean that he's not slept around. Which could be good news for you and he's saved his chastity for you). This also might mean that he was suffering from performance anxiety and ddnt know hw to please you in bed. When a man is anxious and scared, it's common that he'll perform poorly in bed and if he's not even skilled then it'll be an even worst show ever. On top of that he might be scared of you as well. I'm not sure if the first nights outcome should be used as a yardstick to measure and evaluate his sexual prowess through out his life or could you give him a second chance where you could teach him how to pleasure you. Since you seem to be having some knowledge on this subject. If you see the statistics, you will know that most first nights are failures. I also suggest that you give your marriage a second chance so that your husband is more skilled in this subject. A sex therapist or counsellor can also help him to reduce his anxiety in bed and learn the techniques. For you, I suggest that you don't judge him so harshly and be patient with him. He's not an impotent loser just because he" came" too early. He's much more than a sex machine in bed! and probably you haven't noticed that yet. Marriage is not only about sex. Please see him as a human being who is willing to share his life with you and get old with you. A deeper understanding, trust, mutual respect, open communication are the central to a successful married life. All the best.

Dear lybrate user...I can understand your agony, but in life there will be numerous instances when it will be mandatory for you to take your stand and disagree with other people. Always the one's who keep their own point at the top priority are the one's who leave a mark behind them. Everyone is different and everyone has different body structure and shape. No one gets greatness for their external appearances even the movie stars, but what they get greatness for is the expertise they have got. You need to be proud to be yourself, to be a human being and once you start respecting yourself, people around you will start respecting you. There is no reason always for people who bully others, but the motivation for them to bully is the distress and reaction they produce in the other individual. Stop giving them the thrill they get by bullying you and this will mark the beginning of change. I hope this is useful to you. Take care

Congratulations, that is really good that you want to stop smoking because it is really very harmful. Just the fact that you want to give up smoking is a good starting point. The habit can be very difficult to halt because of the many conditions attached to smoking. In fact these conditions can exist all through the day unlike other addictions. But your desire to want to stop is the most important factor. It is important to find out about the ill-effects of smoking to have a reason that alarms you about continuing in the habit. The information is really scary. The nicotine in tobacco smoke stimulates the heart beat to raise the blood pressure in no time at all. So you must avoid it like the plague: it is just very bad medicine for you. In fact it is highly toxic too. You will need to stop smoking or consuming any tobacco related items with immediate effect. You should start vigorous exercises, gradually increasing it over a period of time. Do deep breathing exercises every time you feel like smoking (try Yoga), and replace the oral urge with some healthy food substitute to satiate the need. You may also take hard candy or chewing gum. If the urge is too strong, then use nicotine chewing gum or nicotine patches, for a little while until the smoking drive reduces substantially. You may also join Smokers Anonymous in your city where the support is really extraordinary for like-minded people who are also in the same situation. Keep yourself occupied or engaged with interesting activities during the times when it is most tempting. Keep the company of non-smokers for some time i.e. at least for the first 21 days. Above all announce it to everyone that you have quit smoking. Here?s a piece of very good advice: even if you accidentally/willfully take a cigarette, it is not the end of the world ? you can start the cessation all over again. You must persevere with the best support until you defeat this addiction. Counseling is very useful in the initial stages and when temptations are at their highest. All the damage you incurred earlier because of the smoking can be reverted back to normal in quick time.

My boyfriend is suffering from delusions of persecution & is on treatment for substance induced psychotic disorder since an year now. He's not abusing any substance now & he's not scared of people anymore but his delusion on me has not gone away still. He thinks i've drugged him & i'm the cause of all his suffering. He's uncomfortable meeting me. This illness has ripped our relationship apart. He stays in mumbai & I had to leave mumbai because he was totally scared of me. I'm in kolkata. Now the problem is he can't stay with me but can't be away too. He talks to me everyday & we have a platonic relationship. The intensity of his delusion isn't as strong as before though. My question is'will he never realize his delusions? is there any hope? he's suffering from psoriasis too now. How can I contribute in his wellbeing?

Usually drug-induced psychosis fortunately has a two-year duration and will subside on its own. It is good he is on treatment though which will make it easier. Even the geographical distance between you two will give him the space and time to work on the issues since he is blaming you for his self-induced condition. He needs counseling to sort out his distortion with your involvement and come to terms with his contribution and the addiction. Most addicts have a problem accepting the seriousness of their problem and use denial to blame other people and factors for their plight. He needs to sort this out first. You just have to be assuring to him and talk like normal and that you are not guilty of any wrong doing. There is no point in getting into a slanging match while denying it. If that happens, just keep quiet and say that it is up to him to believe you or not. I also think that if he does not work or resolve his problem, you may have to take a call about the future of this relationship from your side at least. You may go about it as gently as possible but the hard reality is that there is something wrong to begin with and unless that is worked up on and dealt with, with some guarantees that that will not recur as a permanent problem in the future, you could be looking at letting him go. If you still want to pursue the relationship, please get involved in his recovery to understand the implications and the extent he has resolved the addiction problem and the psychosis. Sometimes the chemical could have induced an underlying predisposition to the psychosis. Then it is a different situation all together. You must also work on why you were attracted to such a personality, and if that moots some serious work, please do so for your own good, whether you make it with him or not.

Dear, writers cramp usually is due to neurological problems or nerve problems. Prolonged' same method' writing may cause this. There are no medicines available to treat it. The best method is to find a new way to write. Alter the way she holds pen. Increase the height of hand' s position etc can give her relief. Take care.

Can you suggest me some treatment?
Please help me. I am very worried. Help me.
Depression is a state of mind, your doctor needs to understand your problems and factors responsible for depression. Depression is like boiling milk in a vessel. When milk starts boiling you either need to stop the flame or remove the vessel rather than taking milk out of the vessel to prevent spiling. similarly your doctor needs to talk to you and understand what is bothering you and that will also help in chalking out the right treatment. Above all stop caring about things which are bothering you, when you can not control go with the flow keep on doing your work, nothing is permanent, this situation will also pass the only thing remain will be the result of your efforts. so just motivate yourself and see a qualified doctor for mental physical and spiritual health. Homoeopathy is good at it. Wish you a speedy recovery..

What is stress?

Stress is a fact of nature in which forces from the inside or outside world affect the individual. The individual responds to stress in ways that affect the individual, as well as their environment. Due to the overabundance of stress in our modern lives, we usually think of stress as a negative experience, but from a biological point of view, stress can be a neutral, negative, or positive experience.

In general, stress is related to both external and internal factors. External factors include the physical environment, including your job, your relationships with others, your home, and all the situations, challenges, difficulties, and expectations you're confronted with on a daily basis. Internal factors determine your body's ability to respond to, and deal with, the external stress-inducing factors. Internal factors which influence your ability to handle stress include your nutritional status, overall health and fitness levels, emotional well-being, and the amount of sleep and rest you get.

Stress has driven evolutionary change (the development and natural selection of species over time). Thus, the species that adapted best to the causes of stress (stressors) have survived and evolved into the plant and animal kingdoms we now observe.

Almost all areas of the body that are affected by stress.
