Dear lybrate-user. Welcome to lybrate. Kidneys are the organs that help filter waste products from the blood. They are also involved in regulating blood pressure, electrolyte balance, and red blood cell production in the body. There are many causes for kidney problems. Three of the main reasons are lack of blood flow to the kidneys direct damage to the kidneys themselves urine backed up in the kidneys cigarette also contains 4000+ carcinogenic chemicals other than nicotine.

Dear lybrate-user, past is past. Past is dead. Past lives only in your thoughts. In that case, your fear is from thinking about past happening. In that case it is irrational. Irrational obsession. You will be needing rational emotive therapy. I suggest you to consult a psychologist. Take care.

Dear lybrate user. Please calm down. You are just 18. You are not going to marry your girl friend tomorrow or next month. You have t complete your education, get a job and then marriage comes. So don't be too impatient. You are in love and so be it. Continue loving your girl friend. Don't worry about what your family members say, because those opinions are largely instinctual. Continue with your love and education. Get good job and propose her. At that moment, your family members would not disagree. Take care.

After 15 days I tried to contact her she is telling that she wants to be a free bird, she want to explore and enjoy its seems. I was restricting her from bad things. But she has not understood me. Now she has move on. She hangouts with my enemies and she is more happy. But the problem is that I can't see that I feel guilt and some feeling which is rune my life. I begged to her like dog. That I can't be without her. But she says please get lost. I can't move on. I am stuck. Please help me how to forget her and her memories always come into mind. So please help me. I just wanna be strong like that! Please help me and give me good suggestion s respected sir or madam. I am really not going good.

If you had broken up and you are still thinking about her, it only means that you loved this girl very much.If you were not the one to break up with her, then she has played a game and now you have regrets. The clock cannot be turned back again, I suppose. You are pining for her too much and that can be your weakness that she can either exploit or abuse. This means that you might have entered into a symbiosis and her leaving has become life-threatening. That itself might be the reason for the breakup. Girls want a relationship where independence is respected and there is no clingy behavior. You have got to look into this aspect of your personality. Are you becoming too dependent on the girl and therefore demanding, even if it appears that you are protecting her? This is not a welcome feature for a girl to want to maintain this relationship. If she is willfully meeting with your opponents then the message is very clear : she just does not want you! You must therefore develop yourself to become independent and responsible. Maintain respectful distance. There are three important developments in an individual that creates an autonomous personality: intimacy, awareness, and spontaneity. Of these, awareness is of great importance: it will help you know yourself internally and to also make you conscious of other people around you. Such a person is able to meet his needs and that of the other in a balanced manner. You must learn to do this soon. You are still young and have a lot to learn. In fact when you enter college, you will meet many girls and will interact with them. If you resolve the symbiosis, you will do really well. Meet with a counselor and describe your longings, needs and wants, openly. Take your parents along and let them describe your entire life till now and the counselor will get an understanding of your plight. Remove everything that is a reminder of this girl and start working on your development. Demonstrate how you will look after yourself and work on doing that. Learn independence skills and do a personality development course too. You are still so young that when this relationship started you were only 15 years: too young to get serious with any one. And never get serious with anyone unless all the compatibility issues and the adjustability is really well understood and established.

Viral fever takes 3-5 days.

Anger Management - 12 Tips To Help You!

M.S. Counselling and Psychotherapy
Psychologist, Bangalore
Anger Management - 12 Tips To Help You!

Anger is good. It protects you. But intense, uncontrolled anger may destroy valuable relationships. Anger is a result of anxiety and fear. When we assume that our expectations will not be met, we become anxious. When we feel unsure about our own capabilities we become anxious. This anxiety creates fear. Anxiety comes from our beliefs. All beliefs can be modified.

Anger has lots of energy. Avoid arguments/confrontations when you are very angry. When you are very angry you are likely to use rough language which may damage your relations and you are likely to behave impulsively. All this you might regret later on. Following are a few techniques which will help you to manage your anger in difficult situations :

  1. Sit down and have a glass of water, slowly. This will help you to calm down a little.
  2. Avoid or go away from that room or situation. Tell the people concerned, that you are angry and would like to discuss it some other time.
  3. Deep breathing exercises help a lot. Close your eyes, take 10 deep breaths, turn your attention towards your body. See what is happening to your body. Tell your body muscles to relax. If your heart is beating fast, if you are breathing fast, continue deep breathing, till it normalises.
  4. Now understand what is making you angry. Understand your own anxiety and fear related to the issue.
  5. Let the other person know how you are “feeling”. Start your statements, “I feel hurt/insulted/let down/neglected etc. when you do this”, instead of saying “You hurt/neglect me”. When you express your feeling in this manner, the other person does not feel blamed, which makes the other person more receptive.
  6. Focus on the current issue, don’t bring in past situations.
  7. Tell the other person, what you want or expect, instead of telling what you do not want. E.G. Instead of saying “I don’t want you to go out now”, say “I would like you to stay at home today”.
  8. Listen carefully what the other person wants to tell you. Give others a chance to voice their opinions.
  9. Make an eye contact and be firm but polite while communicating your point of view.
  10. Understand everyone’s responsibility in the situation. Try to see, what is your share in the problematic situation? Work on that.
  11. Understand what change you want.
  12. Have realistic expectations from others and also from yourself. 

    If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a psychologist.

Sir I am drinking alcohol one or two times in one month is there any. Problem to my health.

MBBS, MD Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Kolkata
Certainly alcohol has many ill effects. To begin with, it is habit forming and one can easily become dependant on it. It can cause memory problems, liver damage, accidents, passing out (black outs) and not to forget, social as well as monetary problems. Try and curtail your intake or even quit altogether. It is better to stay away from vices.

The end of a relationship often feels like the end of the world. After all the time and energy you have invested in it, it is very painful when it gets over. Keep in mind that life is full of ups and downs; nothing is permanent. The pain you feel today will go away with time. Give yourself time to heal. Give time, time. In the meanwhile don't isolate yourself from your friends and family. Confide in someone you are comfortable with. Make a list of life goals, and plan how to achieve them. Relationships are an important part of your life, but they are not everything. Spend time with those close to you, indulge in some enjoyable activities. Keep yourself busy. Slowly you will see that there is a lot to life. However if you are feeling suicidal, consult a psychiatrist immediately. Don't wait to feel worse.

I will be so calm and quite with my friends but I am always getting angry without any reason when I am in my house or with parents. Could you please help me.

M.S. Counselling and Psychotherapy
Psychologist, Bangalore
Probably, you are not allowed to be yourself at home. Probably there are many things about your parents, that make you angry but you are unable to express your feelings. You have suppressed anger towards your parents. Hence you are getting angry with them all the time. Please try to find out, what are you angry about. May be you want more freedom, more love, more attention, less restrictions etc. Etc. Once you realise what is bothering you, talk to them without getting angry. Try to convey to them how you feel, when they behave in certain ways. Also please try to think from your parent's view point. They probably are still treating you like a child. Make them understand that you are growing up now, take responsibilities, which you can shoulder. Assure them of your abilities and strengths. All the best.

I am a 21 year old gye, I have habit of smoking cigarettes. I smoke almost 6-5 cig. Sticks a day. Sometimes I suffer from cough. Especially in morning. But is is ok after some time. I am more curious about my sexual health till now I am not having any problem as such. But can this habit have effect on my sexual life in future?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

Yes, smoking can do quite some damage to sperms, sperm production and to erectile disfunction. The vasoconstricting action of nicotine can reduce the flow of blood to the penis and lead to poor erection. So ideally you should give up smoking altogether. Smoking is never healthy for anyone.

Hello. Masturbation is a medically healthy and psychologically normal habit. It is considered abnormal only when it inhibits partner-oriented behavior, is done in public, or is sufficiently compulsive to cause distress. Masturbation does not produce premature ejaculation. Post-masturbation effects: a man whose penis has suffered a blunt trauma, severe bend or other injury during intercourse or masturbation may, rarely, sustain a penile fracture or suffer from peyronie's disease. Phimosis is" a contracted foreskin (that) may cause trouble by hurting when an attempt is made to pull the foreskin back" in these cases, any energetic manipulation of the penis can be problematic. A small percentage of men suffer from postorgasmic illness syndrome (pois), which can cause severe muscle pain throughout the body and other symptoms immediately following ejaculation, whether due to masturbation or partnered sex. The symptoms last for up to a week. Masturbation drains vital nutrients from the body. If body is in the state of good health to recover, supported by healthy food, regular exercise and calm mind, this practice may cause no impact. Continued drain without enough nutrition reach can lead to weakness (trauma), reflected both in mind (lack of self confidence is the most common) and in the body (digestive disorders, hair fall, frequent urination etc). Medication: take silicea 200 and alfaalfa tonic - both twice daily for 3 weeks.

I am 23 year old famle. I have social anxiety disorder. What should I do. I have problem in interaction with people. ...
About the issue itself: Do you know if this is a family trait, or is the family by anyways less to socialize, or have you had any problem with fear because of some family or childhood experience? Have you ever been embarrassed in public by someone that it has left an indelible mark in your personality? You can take the answers to these questions to a counselor and resolve the same. Any way you must deal with your fear of people and it will be the best solution to your problem. In the meantime do some confidence building exercises by attending a personality development course, public speaking skills course (I suggest you join the Toastmasters Club), work out at a gym to build good self-image, and join social events to practice your skills. Surprisingly many people are often in the same boat as you, and so you are not alone. The very people you are intimidated by may be afraid of you too!!!! There are three important developments to have to make an autonomous personality: Awareness, intimacy and spontaneity. If you are super aware or too conscious of yourself, it will affect the intimacy and spontaneity. Although your problem is now directly to do with intimacy, you can see that they are all connected. Go and work on these matters with a counselor for this level of social anxiety to disappear from your life for good.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 studies and work, and feel good about your achievements. You could also go for hypnosis sessions to build your self-image from within. Now, remember that all your problems are in your mind: spiritual wellness, faith and prayer will boost your confidence really well. Emotional wellness will take care of the fear factor. There are lots of affirmations, if said three times at a time, everyday, they will gradually strengthen your concept of yourself. Yoga and meditation will also build you up. Speaking to a counselor will give you personal assistance in pursuing these goals. The ultimate test of a personality is in the social context. The greater test is when we meet with the opposite sex. And the final test is when we have to bed and board with a member of the opposite sex in marriage. If you wait for that time to resolve it, it might be too late and traumatizing. Even if you are afraid of people, face your fear and see what happens. They are certainly not going to kill you. So what is the worst that can happen? Really nothing, but it will feel great to have friends and lots of companions in life. We are after all social animals, gregarious by nature and need each other. So don’t handicap yourself on this front. Attend a personality development class, personal grooming class, public speaking class, and conversation classes. It will help to do a lot of this with a close friend, if you have one. If not, find one. We are into relationships all the time. It is near impossible to live without people. All research has shown that living with someone gives us good health and long life too.

I hate myself. I feel as is life has nothing in store for me. Earlier it was occasional, now it is regular phenomena. I am a diabetic too.Does that have anything to do with that?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Life will not offer anything on a platter for you. You make your life. You cannot do so, if you hate yourself. This is a setup for depression. Instead of being your best friend, you have become your own enemy. When you became a diabetic, and you were extremely disappointed by that, it could be the reason. But in my opinion, it seems more than that. Go out there and face the world, in that manner you will attract positive forces and events into your life. Think positive, you will become positive. Your attitude has to change. Speak to a counselor to identify any past events in your life that may have impacted your mood and attitude. Work on what you discover and big changes may be the order of the day
