Dear doctor, I don't like to have sex but my husband wants every day as he feels relaxed after it and whenever we have I feel very tired and weaknesses for the next few days. It is very annoying and bringing negatively in our relationship. How to handle it?

Hi, Thanks for writing in. Welcome to the forum. This is a problem that is faced by a lot of couples. It is very common and a frequent source of conflict. As the couple do not speak much about this to each other, it further worsens the situation. Ideally, couples therapy, a form of psychotherapy should be done here. Many of my clients are doing great with this intervention. But if it is difficult for both of you to seek intervention together, you alone can also be evaluated and see what solutions can be evolved. Take care!

The age at which she had the breakdown is not surprising: late adolescence is normally the period when most people have these breakdowns and are indicative of childhood influences and genetic factors. This is the last time that she will get to resolve the issue and if it is not treated now it can lead to a permanent condition into adulthood. These symptoms must be reported to the doctor so that he can review the dosage or the medication. At her age, this disease can be quite crippling and difficult for her too. What she needs to do is to go for counseling along with the medication. She must be put on a tight time schedule of activities too. She must be occupied but not busy: occupational therapy is highly recommended. Anything that attracts her attention is normally good for her. Always keep her mind engaged with outside distractions because otherwise, she will go internal where all the craziness lurks. Once she goes internal she can get locked in and to get her to relate to the external world thereafter will become near impossible. Ideally, she should be around people who will interact with her. Sometimes these methods can actually relieve her of many symptoms of the disease. Exercise is an integral part of her daily routine but it has to be suitable to her age and physical condition. Remember there is no cure but getting her to become functional as much as possible is good for her and the family. This will be an on-going exercise and everyone must pitch in, be patient and kind, yet firm. Any passive state will encourage degeneration.

Physiotherapy is Safest Pain Management

Physiotherapy is Safest Pain Management

Human skeletal system is formed by bones. Bones unite at joints. Joints are the places where movement takes place. Muscles attached to the bones produce movement. Structures like ligaments are attached to bones which limit movement due to aging and repeated wear and tear the cartilage in between the bones looses its elasticity and gets worn out and has a bad impact over the joint. The problems that arises commonly are cervical spondylosis shoulder pain low back pain osteoarthritis knee heel pain etc,

Physiotherapy deals with these problems by relieving pain with modalities such as interferential therapy long wave diathermy laser therapy ultrasound therapy etc, once the pain subsides exercise therapy are started and ergonomical and home advice are given to prevent the recurrence. Physiotherapy is considered to be the safest method for this problems than surgical 
Methods. Physiotherapeutic modalities are non invasive without any adverse effects and complications

This is possibly a panic attack. Detailed evaluation will obviously be needed to confirm the same. The good news though is that panic attacks can be controlled relatively easily. The background of depression will also need evaluation. It is very well known that depression and panic attacks commonly occur in the same person. Medicines are usually needed to treat. The medicines are NOT addictive or sleep medicines and are safe. take care!

I have some psycholigal problem. As I am suffering from a recent breakup. So there is a big anger and restlessness.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You do not have a psychological problem but an emotional one: you are very angry and probably because you feel let down or taken advantage of. This sounds like a clear case of being let down by your boyfriend and therefore the restlessness. Perhaps at 35 it is likely more difficult and you may have been in this relationship for some time too. Look back into why this breakup took place and identify how much you have been the cause or taken things for granted. Then work on that for some time with a counselor and resolve it for good. You are still young and the possibilities are immense. But first get over this relationship before getting into another. Sometimes these things happen for the best. Suppose this had happened after marriage that could have been worse! Trust that there is a divine purpose and things will look up in time. Get quickly back into circulation and normalize your socialize life by catching up with old friends whom you might have neglected. Get involved with social activities and have a good time. You are now free and the whole world beckons. Do not brood and let it get the better of you. Talk to someone, including a counselor, and bring out all your feelings. Get rid of all reminders of this friend; be they gifts, photos, and avoid the favorite haunts, activities and people. In about six months, max, you will be out of this condition and ready to launch a new beginning. But in all this you must have learned a lesson, otherwise you will tend to repeat them without your knowledge. A counselor will guide you on that path. Become active, exercise regularly, talk about your feelings to clear it off of you. Otherwise you could land up with a depression. That can happen if you turn your anger inwards.

You are living a life of your parents. First you have to calm your self with breathing exercise and write down your feelings in it. When you settled down talk to your parents about your feeling and what you want in your life. Tell them softly but confidently that you can not live like this but you want to live with them because you love them. Accept them as they are but express your self. Don't think about anything wrong. If you want to take any help from us you can contact us.

My wife aged 43 years is taking her depression treatment of Tab. PaxidepCR 12.5 mg OD and Tab. Tab. Sulpitac 50 mg since May 2007. She is also a patient of Schizophrenia and now she is stable with the treatment. Will she take this treatment for life long or other wise?

(MRCPSYCH-UK), MD - Psychiatry, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Hyderabad
As of today, treatment for some forms of schizophrenia is life long. Since 2007, she is suffering from schizophrenia. So in all respects, she may have to take the medicines for life. Some intelligent doctor like me said the same for cancer and AIDS. But research has caught up and now we have treatment for both cancers and AIDS. So in all likelihood, there will be a permanent cure for schizophrenia.

I don't have always the same feeling about my boyfriend. I always get change of my mood that I don't want to love him and don't want to talk lovely and all. I don't know why I get changed like that though I love him. I think it may be due to some internal pressures from parents that not to talk with him. What should I do so that I could have stability in my mindset and mood so that I will not have the problem of change in my feelings.

Your problem is definitely your mind related and parents pressure . You practise mind control by doing a meditaion ad yoga and have a frank talk with a good friend or relative and My I tell you in 19 years you should be be only worrying about studies and not relation with a boy . If you cannot self control you ask me personally for drugs

Are you illiterate? Then you could have a problem in this highly competitive work environment. If you have been laid off for just a few months, then do not get discouraged. If you have been fired, you may have a real problem. Otherwise, do persevere and actively seek employment according to your aptitude. Sometimes you may have to take up any job for the time being and keep on the lookout for a more suitable one that meets your career aspirations. Depending on your field of work, things may be easy or difficult. Giving up is never the right course. Life is a fight always but a disciplined approach will take you far and wide. If in the interim you are able to develop some more skills or attend courses that would enhance your marketability and make your r�sum� read even better, please undertake to do them. You could always explain to prospective employers that you used your time well and productively. That sure will impress companies and provide you with suitable openings. Of course, there are a lot of self-employment opportunities that anyone can do anytime, if they are determined and have some seed money: No qualifications, no literacy, no handicaps. You will be your own master and your results will depend entirely on you.

HI lybrate-user, Sometimes, you just can't help feeling the urge to laugh. If you allow yourself to laugh during serious moments, you may end up accidentally offending someone. While it might not be that easy to stifle a laugh, for most people it can be done. If you feel the urge to laugh or say something completely irrelevant, excuse yourself immediately, if possible Think before you laugh. If someone says "My mother just died, your reaction may be to laugh. Not to make fun of the person or act like you do not care about their loss, but the sudden change of subject to something sad is awkward for you, so you feel like laughing or getting out of the conversation. Although you may not notice it, something triggers you to do so. Think first, then react. Listen closely to what the person says. Imagine immediately if you were in their situation. What would you do? Would you want someone laughing at you if your mother died? Listening to the person, then putting yourself in their place will help you realize that it's not something unimportant and funny. Think of something sad and depressing. If you need inspiration, the daily news is usually full of unfortunate events that will suffice to calm you down. Think about something that makes you want to cry. Although this can be unpleasant, it usually takes care of the uncontrollable urge to laugh. If sadness doesn't work, fear is also extremely effective. Think of a scene from a horror movie you just saw or a car accident. This is physically proven to work because the adrenaline (the fear hormone) released from your brain when you have these thoughts will block out the endorphins (the happiness or laughing hormone). It may take some practice to convince yourself enough of the fear, but once you have mastered it, it's very effective. Try pinching yourself or causing some other strong physical sensation, such as biting your inner cheek or your tongue (don't bite too hard!). Bite each side of your mouth together, so that the edge of your lips aren't rising up to make you smile or laugh. Hold your breath when you are about to laugh. This can act as a distraction, helping you beat the urge to laugh out loud. If you still squeeze out a smile which other people tend to notice, press your lips together so it doesn't look like you're smiling. Sometimes when you hold your breath though, it just squeezes the laugh out even louder or you laugh at yourself, so be cautious. Also, Use your breathing to control the laughter. Try exhaling as much of the air as possible from your lungs. This removal of the air will not allow the laugh to continue and make it stop. This usually works best when combined with the coughing technique mentioned above. A combination of techniques is often the best! Close your mouth and breathe heavily through your nose, as if you are laughing, just without opening your mouth. It can be covered up as a cold or something of that nature. Lastly, Distract yourself. Try a method for thinking about something else, or self calming. Some approaches that may help include: Count backwards from 10 to 1. If this doesn't work, try again. Even forward counting can help. Consult with me for counseling and therapy to figure out if it actually warrants more attention.

Why we can't divert our mind in anything else why we just things only one thing continuously.

M.Phil clinical Psychology, MS Psychotherapy and Counseling, PGDGC, MSc Psychology
Psychologist, Chennai
The simple fact is that your intense intention to divert your attention itself serves as a reminder to think about it. so don't try to forcefully divert your thoughts. instead involve in some physical activities associated with your areas of interest. socialize more. if you still find it difficult to get over the problem there is also a possibility that you are having obsessive compulsive disorder with predominant repeated thoughts. so consult a psychologist

Hi lybrate-user, Practice Mindful Breathing The primary goal of mindful breathing is simply a calm, nonjudging awareness, allowing thoughts and feelings to come and go without getting caught up in them. Sit comfortably, with your eyes closed and your spine reasonably straight. Bring your attention to your breathing. Imagine that you have a balloon in your tummy. Every time you breathe in, the balloon inflates. Each time you breathe out, the balloon deflates. Notice the sensations in your abdomen as the balloon inflates and deflates. Your abdomen rising with the in-breath, and falling with the out-breath. Thoughts will come into your mind, and that’s okay, because that’s just what the human mind does. Simply notice those thoughts, then bring your attention back to your breathing. Likewise, you can notice sounds, physical feelings, and emotions, and again, just bring your attention back to your breathing. You don’t have to follow those thoughts or feelings, don’t judge yourself for having them, or analyse them in any way. It’s okay for the thoughts to be there. Just notice those thoughts, and let them drift on by, bringing your attention back to your breathing. Whenever you notice that your attention has drifted off and is becoming caught up in thoughts or feelings, simply note that the attention has drifted, and then gently bring the attention back to your breathing. It's okay and natural for thoughts to enter into your awareness, and for your attention to follow them. No matter how many times this happens, just keep bringing your attention back to your breathing. Daily for 15 minutes. Consult a psychologist for counseling.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand your emotions. But I fail to understand why you can't tell your parents. Tell your parents to ask that girl for you. Then you will know exactly what is in her mind. Don't confuse yourself when you have a clear cut idea in front of you. Take care.

I lost somebody close and some then feel very depressed and prefer keeping to myself all the time. Please help.
Hi. I am sorry to hear about your loss. Losing someone causes grief reaction and this takes around 3 months to go completely. The stages of grief are. Initially there is denial for the loss that it is not possible to lose them. Second is anger towards god that why did he do this to you. Third stage of it is bargaining that god can have taken anyone one else or you instead of that person which also venish with tym. Fourth stage is depression which currently I think you r going through. And last stage is acceptance which will soon come and you will be out of it. If the stage persists for more than few months than definitely you should consult to a psychiatrist. So be cool and let the tym travel. If still you feel that you need treatment you can consult me. Thanks and tc.
