I am 89 year old & tired with life, I want to end my life. Suggest some easy way to end the life with one stroke only ?

In india, it is not yet legal to help in euthanasia. I doubt, if anyone will suggest anything in this regard. Yet, I do suggest that whatever days of your life are left, live it with an attitude, that this life will never come back again. Have an attitude of gratitude and remember all those things that were good in your life. People who were good to you, you were good to some people etc. Try to give back a little to the society, because this brings a happiness, which no amount of money can. This make your last days more peaceful and happier. If you have any queries, please contact me on private chat. Take care.

Excessive attachment in any form is harmful for any human being. Loving someone doesn't mean you don't love yourself or stop making yourself a priority. At such a young age, love seems to be the only need in the world. But as you will mature, you will realsie that the most important thing for a person is to be financially and emotionally independent. Only a human who is independent gets the deserved respect in any relationship. Follow your dreams, follow something which excites you and attain financial independence. Next is emotional independence. If you are unable to achieve this, there is no harm in taking professional help from a counceller or psychiatrist. You have your whole life ahead of you. Don't waste it for someone who doesn't respect you as much as you do. Good luck.

Hi I am kamal 24 years old. Its been 3 years I am on medication. My doctor said you are suffering from social anixiety. The medician help me to keep calm and relax. But communication is my big problem. I am working with international bpo where I need excellent communication to handle the u. S. Clients. But I cannot think clearley I always face problem while speaking. My thought process suddenly stucks and I feel I dont have anything to speak. But there are days when I speak with great confidence and handle the clients in good manner. It suddenly changes to other side where I face the same problem which I described above. I really need to resolve it. This is the big issue in my life please advice. My medications are buprone 300xl. Buspin10 mg. Vitamin capsule and fludec 20 mg capsule. Please advise.

The big mistake you are making is that you are not also in therapy. All the issues you describe are exactly suitable to be sought from counseling support. You should have a review of the medication too anyway after you mention these symptoms. The combination of therapy and medication is ideal for a proper recovery. Please attend a personality development course that highlights the five-factorial approach: physical, emotional, intellectual, social and spiritual quotients. If you develop in these five areas, you will certainly improve your confidence. Some personality courses emphasize and focus on public speaking to a large extend. It is not too bad an idea but it is a little narrow in perspective. You could instead attend a toast masters club, which does the same thing in a more organized manner. Apart from regular and aerobic exercise, you must also visit a gym to build a good body image. You can go for personal grooming classes too. While regular vigorous exercise develops your body, the regimen will also enlarge your heart and help you handle stressful situations much more competently than others who don? t exercise. Dress well, eat well, sleep well and conduct yourself well in social circles to build confidence. Perform well in your work, and feel good about your achievements. You could also go for hypnosis sessions to build your self-image from within. In addition, indulge spiritual wellness, faith and prayer that will boost your confidence really well. Emotional wellness will take care of the fear factor, which is your big problem. There are lots of affirmations, if said three times at a time, everyday, they will gradually strengthen your concept of yourself and your confidence. Yoga and meditation will also build you up. Speaking to a counselor will give you personal assistance in pursuing these changes. If the change in mood fluctuates from extremes of low to euphoria, you must report this to the doctor, immediately. You are young and a lot can be done only if you cooperate and combine medication with therapy.

If your diabetic on drugs lead a discipline life. Do not be tempted to take alcohol in any form. This in no way is going to help you aldo noe 1. Beer and sweet wine contain carbohydrates and may raise blood sugar. 2. Alcoholic drinks often have a lot of empty calories, making it more difficult to lose excess weight. 3/alcohol can interfere with the positive effects of oral diabetes medicines or insulin. 4. May increase triglyceride levels. 5. May increase blood pressure. So no alcohol in any form good luck.

Hello doctor, I got married in Jan 2017 .my husband is eight years elder than me. N this is arrange marriage. We didn't get much time before marriage to spend with each other. Because he leaves in canada n I leaves in India. We only talk on phone before 2 months of marriage. He came here for marriage. After that he went back. We spent 18 days together after marriage. N now we usually talk on phone. I got to know that he is short tampered. He usually yell on me because of other persons. N he use very abusive language for them in front of me. Those persons are some time my project manager, some times my brother ,or my sister .I don't know people around me. He have problem with all. N when I defend them that you are misunderstanding then he never listen n screams on me. N always complain to my mother in law about me. I don't know he is mentally fine or not. But what to do now I am afraid. My family too scared to send me there in canada now for him. Please guide me what to do Thanks n regards.

Try to get him realise what he does. In India, A female chatacter is seen as a holy importance. He needs to inderstand you or you can give him chance of getting better. The treatment for your complain is tendem love and intimacy. Get urself here prepare for giving him a chance or coming back if he can not change. Marriage is a initiation of happiness not sadness. Be calm and get him a chance. Its not called medical problem. I can only give advice. It may seem/be wrong also.

You must go and meet with a counselor immediately and if that person advises that you meet with a doctor you must do so and cooperate to your utmost. Please visit these professionals along with your parents. In the meantime please do the following sincerely because you could resolve the problem better with good cooperation: 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 scorching 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. Learn all about emotions and how to handle them and that will get you out of the depression rather easily and quickly. 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 every day and learn to be contented 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. Whatever happens please cooperate with the therapy and do not discontinue until the condition is completely resolved.

Hi, I cannot comment about the medical aspect of your question. You would have to seek a personal consultation with a Doctor for changing your medicine. However, seeking counselling and therapy to address the root cause of your anxieties and resulting muscle tension will help you resolve the problem itself and reduce the need for medication. Very often we give undue weightage to our negative thoughts, fears and worries which makes it difficult to cope with daily life. Effective counselling can help us to enhance our coping skills and live more productive lives without letting our fears and worries overwhelm us. Hope this helps. Take care.

Hi lybrate-userhere are 6 ways to gain weight healthily: 1. Eating 5 to 6 meals a day in order to gain weight, start eating 5-6 meals a day by breaking them into parts. Eating a lot at once may cause indigestion if the body fails to absorb all nutrients. Eat in small amounts, even if you are not hungry and there will be an increase in appetite from day to day. The aim should be to have a generously portioned breakfast, lunch and dinner, as well as two to three snacks in between. 2. Start weight training if you build your muscles through weight training, it will convert the extra weight into lean body mass and also stimulate your appetite. The extra muscle increases the rate of metabolism. When you start exercising you will often experience extreme muscle soreness but it goes away in 3-5 days. 3. Load up on protein besides weight training, a protein-rich diet can help you gain mass. Eating a meal heavy in protein shortly after finishing exercise can be highly effective in adding extra pounds to your body. However, a diet focused only on lean protein is not helpful. It is important to make sure that your diet has plenty of fat in it. Eat foods rich in protein like cheese, meat, eggs, etc to gain weight in a healthy manner. 4. Workout your entire body a lot of people focus only on training the muscles on their arms, chest and shoulders and this is a grave error. Firstly, it will give you a disproportionate body; and it will make you prone to injuries. Therefore, it's important to work out the entire body for a complete and balanced look. 5. Drink your calories to reach the calorie requirement only by eating may be tough. Drinking milk, milkshakes or protein shakes with little or no sugar can be an effective way to load up on the calorie requirements. 6. Be patient and believe in yourself gaining weight quickly in a healthy manner is unrealistic. Every body type is different and it takes months to gain weight. Living healthy by eating the right diet will increase your strength. It is also important to keep following the routine even if you don't see any gains. Caution: junk food and fried foods must be avoided; although have a tendency to add more fat to your body but are very low in vitamins and minerals which are essentially required to keep you really fit.

It's good that you don't have girl friends. Having a girl friend is inviting problems. It's time for you to study, concentrate on that and aim to achieve a goal in your life. Have friends, talk to them casually. Don't give too much importance. It's not an imp issue, don't waste your time thinking like this.

Selfitis and effects

Recently concluded study says taking selfitis is the obessive disorder of clicking one's own photos as a mental disorder taking selfies is ok but a compulsive urge to click yourself and uploaded the image on social media several times a day makes a candidate for selfitis which stems from self confidence
Borderline acute and chronic are the three levels of this disorder and counselling is the way to reduce it

Dear Lybrate user. Why should you go for suicide? This is no crime. You are in love with another man. There is nothing wrong in that. If you think itis wrong, you should change your attitude. Take it as normal and never get guilty or tensed. I suggest cognitive therapy. Take care.

Dear , I would like to know why you are unable to find a job for you? there are plenty of job available outside. Either you are looking for a job which is beyond your qualification or you are looking for status. Think and come below. You should get a job for lesser salary and you could be happy with that. At least, you have a job. Dear, you should be able to distinguish between disappointment and depression. Disappointment also brings on symptoms identical to depression but they are short lived. Your" no job situation" is your disappointment. Please post a private question to me with every detail. I will help you. Take care.

Dear lybrate-user, Please motivate her to seek psychiatric help. Allow her to talk her feelings and give value to her feelings. After consulting the psychiatrist if antidepressant is prescribed, encourage her to take the tablets and counsel her to wait patiently for tablets to work on her brain. It may take 2-3 weeks. Don't ask her to forget family disputes. She too wants to forget - but it comes automatically to her. Please remove sources of harmful suicidal attempts, like tablets, poisons, locked rooms with fan, etc.

Since hearing a few days ago the news that my friend's father died of heart attack, I'm becoming very confused and anxious whether I would get the same in future even though I'm underweight. Whenever I put on a little weight, I'm becoming very anxious and in the consequence, my weight is reduced gradually. My mind forces me to get anxious and confused day in and day out , only then you won't gain weight and heart problem. So pls tell me whether we should not lose our weight with anxiety. If an underweight or overweight person's weight is reduced with stress or anxiety, what will happen to his health? Which one of HDL and LDL will be reduced? And what's the danger thereof to one's health? If you tell me, definitely I will come out of it. Pls help me doctor. I have pinned all my hopes only on u.

Incorporate salad and fruits along with yogurt etc. In your daily food. 3. Sugar is very harmful for your overall health. Reduce its consumption as much as possible. There are so many resources and information available on tip of your finger. Use it in your favor. Read and explore what are the ways you could enhance your wellbeing. Over all wellness includes physical mental spiritual as well as emotional health. All these things will help you stay healthy and fit. You do not need to worry excessively about bad things that might happen. When you are worried you are engaging your energy and focus on some thing which is not productive. You have choice.

I am a 27yr old and have alcoholism last 6 months can you give suggestion for to stop drinking.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
I do not know how much alcohol you have been consuming but you can follow these guidelines anyway. It is best that you admit yourself into a de-addiction center and stay there for at least 6 months and after that attend counseling with a professional. There are medicines that help with the drinking just to ease the initial craving and to act as an antabuse i.e. you will have a serious reaction, if you consume even a small quantity of alcohol or alcohol based substances. It has to be carefully monitored to see that you not only consume the medication but you are also avoiding alcohol. Ultimately, it is your will power and the support that you receive from the medical fraternity and your close and dear ones. You must also learn to substitute and deal with the oral need, a rigid value system, the script issue, and of course take a look at all the genetic factors to plan a strategy not to get into what is called ‘cross addictions’ i.e. another form of addiction that may appear alright but is in fact as bad as the primary addiction. The center or hospital and the counselor will advise and guide you on several measures and precautions you will need to take to stay with your resolve. Even after the rehabilitation you must attend AA meetings and continue this support for a long time. The family will also need to attend some sessions and go for Al-anon meetings for their co-dependency issues. You cannot be treated in isolation because the family has gotten used to your drinking and have made some unhealthy adaptations to somehow cope. Make a serious plan with your family and whoever else’s support you can get and act on it fast.
