Dear, family harmony depends on both husband and wife. Both should be able to respect and trust each other. 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.

You are risking your health, in my opinion. You should get yourself measured for hypertension every month. If your reading is below 130/85 mmgg exercises and good diet should be maintained without medicines. If it is above 130/85 mmgg, you should continue take minimum dose of hypertension medicine. Hypertension is called a silent killer. It will never create a problem for you in the short period. But in long term, continuous hypertension can cause kidney, heart related problems. Consult a physician immediately.

I think if you are having problems in your marital life, you should first discuss it with our support system, usually your family members with whom you should sit and discuss your concerns. If then also your problem is not getting addressed then you can take professional help.

A medical doctor will perhaps answer your problem regarding meningitis. I am going to touch on an emotional angle to all the problems you have mentioned. Her headaches, depression and fever have a strong basis originating from unexpressed anger. I am also aware that these can be caused by meningitis too but as mentioned I am showing an emotional perspective to it. It is therefore interesting that you do mention that she has a problem with getting easily angry and does get into depression, which is also anger related in my opinion. So apart from following the medical approach, do meet with a counselor and discuss her anger issues and where it has originated from. Perhaps there may be some information from her past either from her parents or from her own knowledge. It could be quite deep rooted and therapy must delve deeply too to get to the bottom of this residual anger until it is expressed, appropriately. The anger may be such that she may not feel like expressing it and therefore she has chosen to keep it under wraps. Any feeling that is suppressed will find a way of expressing itself internally and causing a lot of distress including headaches, fever, and depression. It may be useful to read a book by an author called Louise L. Hay, entitled, ?You can heal your life? to understand how emotions that have not been dealt with can disturb your life, and also how to go about healing the same.

Dear lybrate-user, How much your day today life is affected by OCD need to be assessed. How much your thinking time is wasted with your obsession also need to be assessed. Then, I may be able to answer your question. Yes, it can be treated without drugs with Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) alone. This therapy needs about 18-20 sessions of half to one and half hour sessions and a co therapist from your family or friends.

Hello, good to know that you want to quit smoking & congratulations for your resolve! Now as you said smoking calms your stress & nerves, real problem is your anxiety or possibly depression & hence even if you manage to quit smoking on your own; you will hook up to some other addiction.Hence,Please answer these questions before I can help 1. Do you tend to worry about smallest of matters, issues all the time? 2. Do you always feel keyed up/tensed? 3. how is your sleep? do you get bad dreams? 4. Do you feel uneasy at public place, crowded place, closed space like lift? Do you feel uneasy/shy talking with girls, teachers etc.? Good luck

I am 36 year old man drink and gutkha addict 15 years I want leave all this habits.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist
Ask Free Question
I am so glad that your intention is to quit both of these habits. Both of them are orally ingested habits of alcohol and gutkha and so quitting can be a little difficult but can be done at one time. Since you have probably tried and found it extremely difficult I suggest you do one of the following: It sounds like you are in an advanced stage of alcoholism and gutkha use and need admission to a rehabilitation center to ideally help deal with this problem. There are no guarantees about stopping one?s addiction. But that does not mean we should not keep at it, over and over again until we succeed. Now it is difficult to give up all by yourself because you have become addicted to alcohol and gutkha and there is so much to do. Under such circumstances it is best that you admit yourself into a de-addiction center and stay there for at least 6 months and after that you can 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 do 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 in particular and have made some unhealthy adaptations to somehow cope. Your children will also have to attend meetings to work out their issues because of the father?s habit. In fact, they are all suffering from the Adult Children of Alcoholics Syndrome (ACOAs), which in effect means that they are genetically predisposed to alcoholism or can have cross addiction problems, and that they will have similar traits of the abusing alcoholic but in a milder form. There are special support groups for them all over the world. Should they touch or indulge in alcohol or any addictive substances or behaviors, they could also become full-fledged addicts themselves. Make a serious plan with whoever else?s support you can get and act on it fast. If you are not cooperative, there are some centers that will come and pick you up, after you are completely drunk, and admit you by force. This will however, require the wife and family?s consent. Do not delay for any reason and stop fooling around with half decisions. This must be your last and final attempt and make it a successful one.

No advantages till now of smoking weed. Medically, it is used only in terminal patients, cancer patients on chemotherapy and aids patients for keeping them comfortable. There are no health benefits. It is just like alcohol addiction, cigarette smoking and illegal drug addiction. Why are you asking this? it is illegal in the country. It is also a gateway to addiction for other drugs such as cocaine.

There is no way anyone can calculate your longevity on the basis of your alcohol consumption alone. There are so many other factors to be considered and so you are fooling yourself by statistics. You must also factor in that at this rate of consumption you will gradually develop tolerance and dependence on alcohol so that you will'need' larger quantities to attain the same pleasure. You are well advised to quit from the regular use forthwith.

Dear lybrate user. Welcome to lybrate. I can understand. Loosing someone near and dear is called grief and depression related to grief is pretty normal. But this sort of depression does not stay for long. This depression gets cleared within a span of some weeks. The best option for you is to undergo counseling and depression related therapy. Anyhow, there is nothing to worry. Most of the psychological problems can be cured with scientific therapy methods. Take care.
