Dear lybrate-user, You are only 31 years old. You seem to be having both alcohol and sexual problem. Stress need not be controlled by alcohol alone. There are other methods of stress management. Both loose erection and quick evacuation may be due to lack of proper blood supply to penis. You need to get your blood sugar, BP, lipids and heart checked up. If anything is disturbed, it needs to be corrected. Alcohol increases your desire to have sex and takes away the performance. Please ask your wife whether it is lack of sex or alcohol and late return from work bothers her more. If you stop alcohol, you may spend some quality time with your wife. She will be happy and help you to get better erection and delayed ejaculation. With all the reports come online text or audio.

Dear lybrateuser, -first try to stop smoking completely since one or two cigarettes occasionally can lead you to more numbers slowly -slowly -for your problems take a healthy diet & do regular exercises --eat vegetables, fruits, whole grain foods like oats, dalia, dairy products like milk, eggs, paneer, nuts, non-veg like fish, chicken, have yoghurt daily -start doing exercises to increase your strength & stamina, do brisk walking, jogging, swimming, yoga, after sometime your problems will go away.

Dear lybrate-user, There is no way of knowing exactly who will get schizophrenia. However, about 1 in 100 people worldwide will develop the illness. Since schizophrenia tends to run in families, your chances may be higher because you mother has the disease. It is estimated, the risk factor for you is about 10%.(10 in 100) Depression is a part of negative symptoms of Schizophrenia. With other symptoms and mental status examination, any psychiatrist will be able to diagnose you. Please remember that if schizophrenia is diagnosed and treated in first 2 years, it will not become chronic, needing life long medicines.

Psychiatrist, Gurgaon
I have more stress in mind .but. I don't know to come out from stress .plz help me.
Stress is a reaction to a real or perceived event that acts as a stressor. In other words, how much stressed one feels depends on how much stress one perceives in a given situation. Start by making a stress diary. Identify what causes stress. Ask why it causes stress. Is it a negative presumption about the even or a reality that is bothering you. Then figure out, how you have been dealing with the stressor. If the way you handle stress doesn't help, figure out the alternatives. If you by yourself are not able to do this exercise, consult a psychotherapist.

Good morning. I am getting irritation with my daughters behavior. Going into depression.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Good morning. I am getting irritation with my daughters behavior. Going into depression.
I don't know what your daughter'sd behavior is all about. But for your depression please do the following: 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.

Smoking - Why Is It Harmful for Your Health?

M.B.B.S,C.C.A,D.C.A,AASECT,FPA,AAD,M.I.M.S
General Physician, Gorakhpur
Smoking - Why Is It Harmful for Your Health?

Smoking has several bad effects on your body, and it can invite many diseases be it related to the heart, lungs, brain or respiratory system. Millions of people everywhere in this world die from problems triggered by smoking. Cigarette smoking is one of the most harmful threats to your body; there is no way you can expect to remain safe while being an addict. It is not easy to give up smoking in a day. You might require some other sort of oral stimulation in the process of quitting.

There are many toxic compounds in a cigarette which further damage your cells. Tobacco is carcinogenic and hence cigarette smoking can result in several types of cancer. Tobacco smoke mainly consists of:

  1. Nicotine: This is an extremely addictive substance. As smokers are hooked to the nicotine, they find it very hard to quit. This acts really fast on their lungs, and reaches to the brain within 15 seconds after you inhale.
  2. Carbon monoxide: It is a dangerous gas without any taste or smell. You body absorbs it immediately as it is very hard to discriminate between oxygen and carbon monoxide. Carbon monoxide decreases heart rate and muscle functions thus pushing you towards slow death.
  3. Tar: It is a poisonous chemical which causes cancer. Whilst smoking, 70% tar remains in your lungs. It is basically a sticky brown material.

Smoking is one of the most important reasons behind preventable deaths. The diseases that can be caused by smoking are:

  1. Brain: stroke is one most threatening diseases that can be caused by smoking. Smoking increases your chances of suffering from a stroke. Smoking increases brain aneurysm, which develops the chances of stroke. It can rupture the blood vessels in your brain and it can lead to brain death too.
  2. Heart: when you smoke the smoke enters the blood vessels of your body and it damages the blood circulation system. It can give you several heart diseases like - stroke, heart attack, coronary heart problem and peripheral heart problem.
  3. Lungs: your lungs get the worst effects of smoking. Asthma, cough, wheezing and cold are just the tip of the iceberg. Your lungs directly absorb the nicotine and tar. Other diseases like pneumonia, lung cancer and emphysema can also occur.
  4. Mouth and throat: smoking causes very common oral problems like bad breath and stained teeth. It can also cause gum cancer and throat cancer. 93% of throat, head and neck cancers occur due to smoking.
  5. Infertility and reproduction: smoking destroys blood vessels, which supply blood to the penis causing male impotence. It destroys sperm count in men and egg count in women. It can also cause cervical cancer. Apart from this smoking also causes premature birth, stillbirth and illness. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a General Physician.

Hello dear. There are several different forms of depressions-Major depression (also called major depressive disorder, Dysthymia disorder, Psychotic depression, Postpartum depression, Seasonal affective disorder (SAD). You should find a health care professional or a facility that treats patients with depression to know the real cause of depression. The main thing to keep in mind is to be compassionate. Encourage to talk to talk about how he feel without judging what is said. Encourage your brother to get a checkup from the family physician. While your brother may resist the idea of talking to a mental health professional about depression, but may regard the family doctor as a less threatening option. A general practitioner can diagnose depression and prescribe treatment, including making a referral to a licensed therapist or psychologist. Sometimes, having a professional make the suggestion is the key to getting someone to seek help. When talking to someone with severe depression, it’s important to remember that the person has a mental illness. Avoid using language that may be perceived as blaming the person, minimizing the situation or dismissing the circumstances. For example, instead of telling your brother to “just snap out of it,” or stating “It’s all in your head,” ask him if there is anything you can do to help him. Be compassionate, understanding and encouraging. The first line of treatment of depression is typically medication. Changes in brain chemistry may be responsible for the condition, and medication can help correct this issue. A doctor can recommend the right medication for your particular situation. Remember, though, that it does take time to work, so don’t give up if you don’t see improvement within the first week or two. Other things you can do to treat depression include exercising, controlling blood sugar levels and eating a healthier diet. These things can support your recovery effort and help prevent relapses. While a doctor will recommend various treatment options, at the end of the day, you must choose the best one for you. It can, however, be challenging deciding between depressive disorder solutions, especially if you’ve never suffered from the condition before. Think about the outcome you want to achieve, and factor in your personal preferences. For instance, you may want to get rid of the depression but don’t want to use pharmaceutical drugs. Talk to your healthcare provider about options that don’t involve medication, such as over-the-counter supplements and lifestyle changes. Finally its you and your family members who have to play a key role in helping your brother out of depression. Try taking him for a walk every day in a park Let him be close to nature Ask him to walk on green grass. Try to make him listen to Indian classical music Do things that makes your brother happy, it can be making his favorite dish or playing his favorite song/s etc. Playing with children even helps Make him feel that he is not alone and you and others are with him always no matter what happens. Print his favorite picture, can be a family photo or your pic with your brother and frame it and hung it on his room. When you feel that he is cooperating ask him to join yoga classes or laughter classes (you can also join him) Try becoming his Buddy so that he can open up and discuss things with you and crack jokes Play outdoor games like basket ball or badminton with him This all will require patience and time so don’t get frustrated. In the mean time consult your family doctor and do what he says and do see that he is taking medicines regularly if he is kept on medication. Good Luck.

Dear , alprazolam is an effective medication for treating generalized anxiety and panic disorders. Taking away xanax, alprazolam or any other benzodiazepine suddenly, especially in the case of an addicted person, can lead to consequences like insomnia, nausea, vomiting, headache etc. The withdrawal process takes time and is to be made systematically. Tapering is an effective method. You should get help from de-addiction center or psychiatrist for further advice. Take care.

My eight year old son is very lazy and aggressive in nature, how can I change him ?

Hypnotherapist, DCS, BSIC, Advanced Trainee of Transactional Analysis, Advanced Skills in Counselling
Psychologist,
Children learn from their environment. How is the atmosphere in your home, school and his friends circle? also he will be lazy in some activities and active in some others. Try to understand if he's interested in these activities. What is your reasons for wanting him to do it? is there any other thing that he likes and willing to do and you will also get your thing done? slowly you will need to develop negotiating skills to talk with your son as he's close to becoming a teenager. Children respond very well to negotiations. Don't try to change him. It'll boomerang on you as he's already aggressive.

BEING POSITIVE

MBBS, MD - Psychiatry, MBA (Healthcare)
Psychiatrist, Davanagere
BEING POSITIVE

Being positive is the best thing you can do for yourself!

Do you see life as a blessing, an opportunity or a burden? the answer to this question plays a significant role in shaping your existence as it decides your outlook towards life. Being positive or optimistic is highly beneficial for your psychological and physical well-being. Positive thinking is an idea that not only drives you towards success, but also makes way for happiness in your life. 

Cultivating positivity is undoubtedly the best thing you can do for yourself as it makes your life worth living, besides delivering a bunch of health benefits.

Here are 6 of them.

1. Gives you a longer life span

A positive outlook not only keeps you happy, but also increases your life expectancy by manifold in comparison to people with pessimistic thoughts. A recent dutch study analysed the thought patterns of people for 9 years to come to this conclusion. According to this study, which was published in jama psychiatry, people with a generally pessimistic approach have decreased life expectancy by 55%. 

2. Increases good cholesterol level
A research was conducted in 2013 by harvard school of public health to find the link between optimism and cholesterol levels. The study was carried out among middle-aged people and it revealed that that optimistic thought patterns indicated increased levels of “good” cholesterol.

3. Boosts your immune system
Researchers are of the opinion that people who cultivate positive thoughts show a stronger immune response in comparison to people who associate themselves with negative emotions.

4. Increases your confidence
Having positive thoughts can be very advantageous for you as it teaches you to feel good about yourself. This encourages you to try new things and accept challenges more heartily, which in turn boosts your confidence level drastically. Increased self confidence drives you towards success and enhances your performance in all phases of life.

5. Helps you cope with stress better
Studies show that when optimists face a situation, which is not in their favour, they focus more on solving the problem instead of getting disappointed or frustrated. Positive thoughts make you enthusiastic and teach you to deal with any stressful situation with a smile, thereby helping you to work your way out of a crisis. It has also been observed that positive thinking among adolescents acts as a source of protection against depression and behavioural problems commonly faced during teenage.

6. Reduces risk of cardiovascular diseases
A recent study conducted by the american heart association, and published in its journal circulation, showed that people who depicted a positive attitude towards life had decreased their chances of getting heart diseases by 73% in comparison to their pessimistic counterparts. According to researchers, this happens because optimism leads people towards a healthier lifestyle, comprising of a balanced diet and a proper exercise regime. Moreover, optimistic people also have the improved ability to deal with stress, which further points towards a healthy existence.

I am dharam, 33 years old, single, working in creative field (television serials making), facing anxiety disorder. Felt as if will lose something. That causing low confidence also at times and results lack of interest at work.

BASM, MD, MS (Counseling & Psychotherapy), MSc - Psychology, Certificate in Clinical psychology of children and Young People, Certificate in Psychological First Aid, Certificate in Positive Psychology
Psychologist, Palakkad
Anxiety disorders are a category of mental disorders characterized by feelings of anxiety and fear, where anxiety is a worry about future events and fear is a reaction to current events. These feelings may cause physical symptoms, such as a racing heart and shakiness. Your problem is a mental disorder. Not a mental disease. Therefore no medicines are required. Mental disorder can be successfully treated with the help of awareness, meditation, psychotherapy techniques, life style changes etc. I think two or three counseling sessions and psycho therapy techniques should solve your problem. Let me know if you are willing to undergo counseling sessions and tailor made psycho therapy through mobile. Take care.

MBBS, MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Gopalganj
Medication regime which you are talking about is more likely indicative of treatment of psychotic depression having some mixed features. So in this medication needs to be continued long term. May be few years. All a psychiatrist can say is if you stop medication abruptly then subsequent episode is going to be more rapid and severe.

Inability to concentrate can be because of stress, anxiety, boredom, preoccupation with a bothersome thought or Attention Deficit Disorders. Identifying the cause helps us deal with the problem. In the mean time, make a time schedule for the day. Include regular exercise and stress reducing activities like sports or a hobby. Make small goals and revise within 12 hours of studying a topic. If you can't study alone, find a study partner.
