I was in too much depression in January 2015 (love and educational stress), then my left arm, neck and leg started getting numb, I then visited a neurologist and got rid of the problem, bt after that my penis got shortened and loose, I was so afraid (got depressed once again) I didn't discuss it to anyone and visited a famous skin specialist cum sexologist, he said you are a bachelor come to me when you r going to get married, since then I lost my confidence and the condition of my penis is still the same bt sometimes I pee too much yellow in colour and bad odour too. Can you please tell me what may have happened to my penis, can I get back to my original size, shape and enthusiasm?

You seem to be feeling disappointment a lot and taking it to heart. Emotional disturbances have their effect on the physical body as well. I suggest that you please look into it and undertake some counselling sessions to build back your confidence, enthusiasm and self esteem. Yellow color urine and smell could be due to drinking very little water as well. If you are on multivitamins then again urine smells and becomes yellow. I suggest that you look for reasons for your problems and tackle them one by one rather than sinking emotionally. Take a second and third opinion and read up on your condition yourself and educate yourself. Take care.

Is that possible to leave smoking and how it can be dangerous for life?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist,
Of course it is possible to quit smoking although it may appear near impossible. Smoking is always dangerous to life and to the others who inhale the side-stream and secondhand smoke. 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.

Hello Dr. I always feel depressed, tensed irritation and serious looking at everything I do not know what to do ?

Hello Dr. I always feel depressed, tensed irritation and serious looking at everything I do not know what to do ?
Sounds to me like you are into an anger related depression. If you have not been on medication and you want to remain so, you will have to work very hard to recover from this condition. You must first of all seek the help of a counselor, ideally. If that person thinks that you need to meet with a doctor you will need to do so and cooperate right through. 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 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, if you are not already married. 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 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. Whatever happens please cooperate with the therapy and do not discontinue until the condition is completely resolved.

Its been 4 months of my marriage. Previously before marriage I was so active, bold and powerful n now I do not know what is happening to me. I am always absent minded. I forget things n get into slow motion. Like m becoming slow. Not really active with whatever I do. Specially in the kitchen. My mind stops working sometimes. I dont know where I just get lost in my mind. I also feel sleepy. I just get numb, m suddenly if anyone does that work which I was doing. I feel embarrassed. and the family has started calling me as a sluggy fish. What should I do. M losing my confidence and temper too.

Sounds like you could suffering from an anger slow down. If you know what you are angry with especially after the marriage, you could direct a lot of therapy towards handling the problem. We normally get angry, when we want something and we know we are not going to get it or when we are provoked. You could talk to a counselor and see if you both can identify the reason for this anger and as you deal with it a lot of your daydreaming and spacing out will disappear. If this anger is turned inwards, as you would want to do because you think there is no solution to it you could also precipitate depression. Sometimes, the counselor could help you identify the origins of the anger if it that emotion, and make it easier for you. You may get your husband into confidence too.

There may be many factors contributing to this behavior. The manner of the death of his father, any childhood or upbringing issues, and that he is in his late teens. Of course the loss of his father may be a great contributor when he was only 14 years. He is missing him but from the standpoint of an authority figure, a role model, a person who could have been there with him for more years and several such things. If you can find a man from among the relatives to cozy up to him and fill in the void, it will help tremendously. In the meantime, you could act like one and help him tide over this adolescence period without infringing on his freedom. He can also get a lot of help from a counselor with whom he gels. A good career guidance will also give him specific direction, in which a father would have played a very significant role. He needs a good paternal guide and you can explore this in many areas with the right people involved. Get him to be actively involved in sports and games and that will channelize his energy and keep him occupied healthily. Have a lot of talks with him without moralizing but keep all communication channels open. Sometimes it may help for him to know how much you miss your husband and how difficult it is living without him. You may be surprised how that will impact him. Share with him but do not succumb your authority, nor should you molly-coddle him. Because of the hormones he will be acting up too. During this time there will be a spurt in the production of the male sex hormone, testosterone, which has a duration of two years. Due to this chemical alone there are three identified features that present itself over which he has no control: he will be sexually active, aggressive and rebellious, and he will have acne and pimple problems. Then if he has unresolved childhood issues, they will compound the situation and fuel his uncontrolled behavior. Please remember that he himself may not be aware of all this. He is establishing himself among his peers, and he will try to be fashionable in every way possible. What is outrageous to you is very much in, with youngsters today. I am not asking you to become like them but you must understand that this is a different generation and era. He will be seeking a lot of attention from his friends and some of them think that they have to be horrendously different for social acceptance. They will smoke, drink, do drugs, have relationships with girls just to impress their peers. Now what to do? You as a parent need to become his best friend i.e. You must always ally with him and find the path of least resistance, without displaying any weakness. Communication must always be open and favorable. The moment he hides things and does not communicate with you or you withdraw it, there is serious danger. Avoid all types of confrontations and discus your concerns with him, openly. Indulge in him and make home a beautiful place for him to want to be in. Now remember he needs money for all his adventures, which is a commodity he does not have and is not earning it either. That is your bargaining chip or weapon. Use it to negotiate compliance on a barter basis. Never give him anything without there being some negotiations – barter with him; you give him something in return for some compliance from him. There has to be some ground rules in living in your house. If he cannot adhere to them, let him choose to live elsewhere, on his own earnings. Let it appear like it is his choice. You have to be strong and firm in some matters. Don’t make decisions for him: offer alternatives that help him make responsible choices. I recommend that you take him for career counseling and determine his aptitude for academic pursuits. Offer him the option then, that he does his course or goes to work. If you feed him with all the comforts, he will never be under pressure to do anything. In fact you may be encouraging him in his negative behaviors by facilitating them. If you can befriend his close companions, especially his peers, you can reach him through them to influence him positively but it has to be done with strict confidence. You may also have some respected elder relative whom he regards highly. Use his/her assistance to get some obedience out of him. Whatever you do, never let him feel rejected by you. There is no harm to tell him that you are afraid as to what is going to happen to him, and afraid that you cannot handle him. This is a fact and so there is no shame in being that open to him.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. There is nothing much you can do to solve this problem yourself. You need to quit gutkha first. The best option is to use your will power and pledge never to restart it again. Secondly, please make sure to take deaddiction therapy. Thirdly consult a reconstructive surgeon to correct your jaw muscles. Take care.

See, for such reason its not fair to be depressed. You try to convince your love to her. If she is not agreeing you can not do anything more, better search some other girl and get married soon, to get rid from it.

I request you to provide all the symptoms she shows so that I can analyze the problem and provide curative measures. In any case, worrying is not at all a solution.

Dear friend, why is it that one expects things to go in a desired way all the time? how can it be possible? this demand for things to go in a certain way is the root cause of worry/stress.
