Hi lybrate-user, When someone does not want to stay with us- we can not force a person to do that. Its always better to free the person let go and you are lucky that it all happened quickly- otherwise you both would have been dragging a faulty unhealthy relationship. I do not know about her but it seems she is emotionally unstable too. Let bygones be bygones- go for the divorce you are young you will engaged again and this time please be careful while choosing your mate. All the best for counseling you can consult me. Happy to help.

Dear user. I can understand. Anger and aggression are emotions. Anger comes when you become irritated. Irritation happens when you don't like something, or when something is repeated. As anger is an emotion, it should be vent out. You should be able to throw anger out instead of controlling it. But more perfect will be, know the frustrating situations and stop being emotional. If practiced properly, you will not get irritated at those circumstances at all. Those techniques are much easier to understand. Thinking is a complex mechanism and your mind's job is to think. If you allow you to think without having control over it, it will always wander into negative territories. You should train yourself to keep your thoughts under your control. Cognitive therapy will help you in this case. Take care.

Hi. I exercise everyday 5 times a week with Shaun T's focus T25. I rest for two days. I know my body needs rest but I'm afraid if I don't do any physical activity for these 2 days that I'll gained back some fat that I worked so hard to get off. This has happened to me a few times before and it just makes me so depressed and frustrated. What do you suggest I do to prevent this?

Dear, you must have tried very hard for a long time to keep fit and prevent weight gain. Thats why you are worried about weight gain on trivial basis. Weight loss has a science behind it and weight can not be gained in a fraction of time. You have already activated your metabolism by doing regular exercise to keep you fit and your body needs rest too otherwise thr will be stress and fatigue of muscles which may injure you. If you have looked carefully, every fitness regime talks about appropriate resting periods for the body to prepare for next exercise and for the changes to take place. There is a reason behind these. Fitness is achieved by following rules and principles refrding how body works. Exercizing too much may not do miracles. You are getting obsessed about weight loss thats why you worry too much. Do not fovus on irrelevant worries that your mind throws at you. Believe in your efforts. Fitness is not only achieved but maintained for long periods too. So make exercise a part of your lifestyle instead of a one time activity. Then you will develop a lighter attitude towards fitness. Rather than pushing yourself beyond limits.

Hello, doctor I really dont know from where to start m married since December 2012 after marriage our 1st year of married life is going on very well but after 1 year everything has changed we both have lots of fights arguments upon small small things and my husband always end up all this thing by saying let's get separate I want to give you divorce or go back to your mother's place but always it's me who dont want to end dis relationship cos I truly luv him a lot he also luv me alot but I dont know why he always demand for separation. Our marriage is love marriage we both r long distance cousin we know each other from childhood earlier we used to be a good friend den one day he proposed me nd after dat we got married but he also sometimes regret dat day dat why he proposed me he also say dat it was his life biggest mistake. M not a good wife I dont know anything I sometimes feel like killing my self but m coward I m scared to do so. Dont know how to settle all dis thing again cos for him I hardly matters. I just can not say all dis thing to any one neither to my family member nor to my friends. Cos I just dnt want to put a negative picture of after married life in front of any one nad also I luv him soo much dat I dnt want dat my family or friends feel dat he is a bad guy. Please I need some guidance I realy need to know what possible things I can do to put everything back on tracks again. Thanks.

Let me be very very honest and straightforward in my approach! The fact that you had a love marriage and you want this marriage to continue suggests that you love your husband and he does too. There is no formula by which you can avoid dis harmonies in life. Differences in opinion are always going to be there. Both you and your husband should rather stop blaming each other and settle down to findings healthier ways to resolve differences in a much matured way. It is usually stress, anxiety, depression and one's personality which makes one vulnerable to react in a way which one doesnot actually want to or is it expected to. There is no bravery in committing suicide, in fact it is just a timid escape. Also negative thoughts and death wishes point to depression in you. I strongly suggest you to get evaluated for hormonal imbalances and start treatment for depressive symptoms. Also I suggest you and your husband to undergo counseling under a trained psychotherapist. Contact me online fir further assistance if you feel so.

On 4th April 2015 I got an Epilepsy attack in morning around 5 A.M. My wife told me that whole body got folded and after Epilepsy I was feeling vomiting issues. After 5 days I realized that some sound is coming from my mind or Ear I do not know but it is coming continuously. Till then I have contacted many Neuro /ENT .Some one says its Tinnitus and I have started medicine. Epilepsy : Encorate Chrono 500 MG two times (Regularly). For Tinnitus : Bilovas and rejunex cd. Some of my friends have told that you are not taking correct medicine for Epilepsy so you are hearing this sound as an side effect. I am not sure because all 3 Neuro doctors have prescribed me same medicine for Epilepsy. Kindly suggest me that if this can be the case or not. I am really confused and getting depressed / anxiety issues now.

MBBS, MD Psychiatry, DNB Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Nagpur
Epilepsy is a complex disorder of the brain which has various psychiatric components in it. Anxiety and depression are common. Encorate chrono is no doubt a very good medication for epilepsy. But i hope you have investigated yourself in detail for the first attack of epilepsy at your age. Epilepsy due to some reversible and treatable cause should always be sought for complete cure. Sounds from your mind/ ear need evaluation because sounds in tinnitus are peculiar and can hardly be confused with anything else.

Hello doc. I'm a 15 years old school going girl. And I've been having nightmares constantly for a week, to say. It's kinda awkward to tell. It's like I'm used to them now but sometimes they're so dreadful that I feel like screaming aloud in my bed (In midnight, it's so not okay you see). Last night I saw someone die before my eyes. And the scene is still lingering through my mind. Some of the dreams include being chased in a graveyard, ghosts roaming around in my house, and then this. A death and the spirits. I'm scared to death. I can't sleep. I don't want to sleep. But that's not possible of course. So please help me out on this. I don't wanna have those nightmares again. It's making me sick. Mentally sick. I want to go to a psychiatrist but I can't. For my parents think psychiatrists treat only a mentally retarded person.:(Please help me out. It's the only beam of hope I see.

HI lybrate-user, Bad dreams can be very unpleasant. Apart from being an uncomfortable experience, they can also interrupt sleep. Nightmares can have many causes, but the main causes are stress and trauma. Thankfully there are some steps you can take to stop these nightmares from occurring, allowing peaceful and restful sleep to return. Follow these methods to avoid having these nightmares in the first place. Don't dwell on your nightmares. Even though they may be truly terrifying and stick with you, try your best not to worry about them. Allowing them to cause your more stress and fear will only increase the likelihood of more nightmares in the future. Try to focus on positive life events instead of fear and worry. Thinking of a safe space or a loved one will help keep your mind in a positive space. Think of how much better your sleep is becoming now that you are improving it. Don't take your worries to bed with you. As much as possible, leave any fears or concerns behind you as you lay down to sleep. Dwelling on these negative things as you fall asleep will only increase the likelihood of having a bad dream. As you fall asleep, focus your mind on the rhythm of your breath. Gently and naturally, follow your inhalations and exhalations with your mind. If your mind wanders, refocus on your breath. Focusing on your breath will allow your thoughts to pass by without disturbing your sense of calm. Try not to dwell on any thoughts as you fall asleep. Let your thoughts pass by without focusing on them or making judgements about them Practice visualizing a safe space. If you feel too stressed or find yourself focusing on negativity, try imagining a safe space. By visualizing a safe space, you can find relief from the source of your anxiety for a time, allowing you to return relaxed and refocused. Find a real, physical space that you can get comfortable in. Start to imagine your safe space. Your safe space can be any place at all, real or imagined, that makes your feel secure and relaxed. Use all of your senses in your imagining of your safe space. See, hear, smell, feel, and maybe even taste your secure and safe space. Be aware of your body and any tension you are carrying. Release and relax that tension as you enjoy your safe space. Be in your space for for at least five to ten minutes. When you feel relaxed, slowly return by opening your eyes and calmly sitting for another minute. Use imagery rehearsal therapy. If your nightmares have repetitive elements or happen frequently, you can use imagery rehearsal therapy to rewrite your bad dreams. Follow these steps to take control of your nightmare: If you have a recurring nightmare, write it down in detail. Make any changes you want with your nightmare or write an entirely new dream that you want to have. For example, if you encounter a monster in your nightmare, try changing it into a kitten. Before bed, and throughout the day, imagine your new dream with the changes you made. Visualize the new narrative and remind yourself that this is how the dream is now. Be confident that this new dream is the one you will experience instead of the old nightmare. There are a multitude of additional potential causes. Examine the following possible causes of your nightmares to see if any of them are applicable to your situation: A new drug prescribed by your healthcare provider. Certain medications could cause nightmares as a side effect. Interactions with existing prescriptions and any new medications could also be responsible. Ask your doctor about any new prescriptions and if they may be responsible for your nightmares. Drinking too much alcohol. Alcohol consumption can cause nightmares by interrupting deeper levels of sleep, when dreams often occur. Reduce alcohol consumption to improve sleep quality and reduce the frequency of nightmares caused by heavy alcohol usage. Eating just before going to bed. When you eat before bed, your metabolism increases, keeping you awake and preventing you from having deep, restful sleep. Avoid any snacks before bed to sleep better and lower the chances of having a nightmare. Illness with a fever. Being ill, especially with a fever, can interrupt sleep patterns and cause nightmares. After you recover from the fever or illness, your nightmares should reduce in frequency. If they do not, talk with your doctor and look for another possible cause together. Stopping certain prescriptions. Ending your usage of a prescription, with a doctor's order, can be responsible for nightmares. If you are experiencing nightmares after ending a prescription, ask your doctor if this may be responsible and what to expect as you end the medication. Your nightmares may have common elements or will be exact repeats of previous nightmares. If you have the same nightmare consistently there may be unique causes behind this type of nightmare. The two main causes repeating nightmares are: Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). 71% to 96% of those with PTSD have been found to have may have nightmares. PTSD is caused by a terrifying event, either witnessed or undergone directly. Severe anxiety or depression. Suffering from either severe anxiety or depression can cause repetitive nightmares. Work with your doctor, therapist, or counselor to help reduce your anxiety or depression, which will in turn help to stop your nightmares. Improve your sleep. Take actions to make the quality of your sleep improve. Poor sleeping habits can make nightmares more likely to occur. Take some of the following steps to help get a good nights rest: Get regular exercise. Exercise helps you fall asleep faster and sleep more deeply. Limit caffeine and alcohol. Both can reduce the quality of your sleep. Make time for activities that you enjoy. Practice meditation or relaxation techniques. Have a regular sleep schedule. Go to bed and wake up at the same time everyday Make your bedroom a place for sleep only. Don't do any other activities in your bedroom that would be counted as “waking” activities. By mentally establishing that your bed is a place for sleep and rest alone, you will be able to fall asleep more quickly and more deeply. Avoid any activities, even simple ones such as reading or watching TV, while in your bed. Only go to bed when tired and ready for sleep. See, You are not alone. Nightmares are extremely common, affecting eighty to ninety percent of people at some point in their lives. Most often, a counselor or psychologist will help you to overcome your nightmares and you can consult me for same. All the best Hope it helped.

Dear user. You are 38 and you have enough experience and logical thinking capacity to analyze all these. You were in relationship with her for 13 long years. You know your friend better than anybody here. There could be something which makes her behave in this way. Don't panic, outraged. Have patience. Go talk to her. Talking can help in many ways. Take care.

A WOMAN’S BIGGEST SEX ORGAN IS HER BRAIN. Excite her emotions and mind, and her body will follow.” Turn her on first with her imagination – not her clitoris – then get physical. Women do indeed love incredible, mind-blowing sex. On a higher (advanced) level, it means she’s capable of having (and you giving) orgasms without any physical stimulation whatsoever. 1: Talk dirty to her! Send sexy texts, role-play, or write erotic poems. It’s hot, sexy, and it turns her the hell on! (Need proof? Romance novels are the highest selling genre of fiction books, with estimates at over 50%). 2: Tease her to please her. If you’re about to kiss her, go in for the kiss…slowly. Kiss her legs up toward her thighs… almost painstakingly slow. It’ll drive her crazy! Remember, the anticipation of something is often better than actually getting it – for men and women. Go too fast and she’ll think you’re a pervert. Go too slow and she’ll think you’re a wussy. A great lover knows when the time’s right, and when she’s ready to get things going! 3: Focus on her by: Taking off her clothes first Bringing her to orgasm before intercourse Asking her what she wants Exploring positions (and places) she loves.

General Physician,
If you feel excessive sleep or tiredness/ head spinning or vertigo like feeling you have to make sure you have no anaemia or hypothyroidism by doing a blood CBC & TSH and inform me directly 10 Study Tips to Improve Your Learning Study Tip 1: Underlining Underlining is one of the simplest and best known study tips. It’s easy to highlight the most significant parts of what you’re reading. One key sentence per paragraph and a few important phrases here and there. You can only retain a certain amount so it’s best to retain the most important information. Study Tip 2: Make your own note and taking notes is one of the most widespread study skills out there. Essentially the aim of note-taking is to summarise lectures or articles in your own words so you can easily remember the ideas. Study Tip 3: Mind mapping A good Mind map can save you many hours of study and further consolidate your knowledge for your exams. Mind Maps are an extremely versatile tools. They can be used for brainstorming, outlining essays or study topics and for general exam preparation, ExamTime offers the ability to create Mind Maps quickly and easily which makes them the ideal tool when it comes to exams. Study Tip 4: Flash cards:- Using these are a particularly effective method of learning when trying to assimilate different facts, dates, formulas or vocabulary. Subjects such as History, Physics, Maths, Chemistry, Geography or any language are made much easier if you incorporate Flashcards in to your study. Study Tip 5: Case Studies Sometimes it can be difficult to grasp the implications of some theories. This is where studying case studies can be a big help. Case studies can help you visualise a theory and place it in a more familiar and realistic context. This is especially useful in business or law subjects. Study Tip 6: Quizzes are an excellent way to review study notes in the weeks and days before an exam. Quizzes can show where your strengths and weaknesses are, so it allows you to focus your efforts more precisely. Moreover, if you share your Study Quiz with your classmates and test each other as much as possible you can discover even more details and areas you may have overlooked. So before any exam, make sure you create and share a bunch of different Quizzes with your Friends. Study Tip 7: Brainstorming This is another study technique that is ideal for studying with friends and/or classmates. Brainstorming is a great way to expand every possible idea out of any topic. Just get a bunch of friends together and shoot the breeze, there are no wrong answers when brainstorming – just talk and capture the ideas, you can review afterward. Study Tip 8: Mnemonic Rules Mnemonics are especially useful when memorising lists and sets. Mnemonics rules basically work by associating certain concepts with other concepts that are more familiar to us. There are many different ways to make mnemonics and these can be individual to the person. Study Tip 9: ORGANISE your study One of the most effective study skills is also one of the most often overlooked; this is organising your study. Creating a TIME TABLE gives you goals and a time in which to achieve them. Having a study timetable as you study is greatly motivational Study Tip 10: Drawing Many people find it easier to recall images rather than text that is why they are better able to memorise concepts if they associate them with pictures or drawings. If you find answer helpful please click on “helpful” tab for knowing my efforts are useful CONCENTRATION TIPS Here’s some tips to get into a state of deep concentration where work / or studies flow easily so that you can do well in examinations/ and or do your work well. 1) Cut Off the Noise Getting into a state of concentration can take at least fifteen minutes. If you are getting distracted every five, you can’t possibly focus entirely on your work. Request that people don’t interrupt you when working on a big project. If you are required to answer phones and drop-in’s immediately, schedule work when the office is less busy. 2) Structure Your Environment The place you work can have an impact on your ability to focus. Try to locate yourself so you are facing potential distractions such as doors, phones or windows. This way you can take a glance to assess sounds that would otherwise break your focus. 3) Clarify Objectives Know what your goal is clearly before you start. If you aren’t sure what the end result is, the confusion will make it impossible to focus. 4) Divide Blobs. If you have a large project that needs work, clearly identify a path that you will use to get started working on it. If the sequence of actions isn’t obvious, it will be difficult to concentrate. Taking a few minutes to plan not only your end result, but the order you will complete any steps, can save hours in wasted thinking. 5) Know the Rules Get clear on what the guidelines are for the task ahead. What level of quality do you need? What standards do you need to follow? What constraints are there? If the rules aren’t clear from the outset, you will slip out of concentration as you ponder them later. 6) Set a Deadline Deadlines have both advantages and disadvantages when trying to force concentration. A deadline can make it easier to forget the non-essential and speed up your working time. If you give yourself only an hour to design a logo, you will keep it simple and avoid fiddling with extravagant designs. Time limits have disadvantages when they cause you to worry about the time you have left instead of the task itself. 7) Break down Roadblocks Roadblocks occur whenever you hit a tricky problem in your work. This can happen when you run out of ideas or your focus wavers. Break down roadblocks by brainstorming or planning on a piece of paper. Writing out your thought processes can keep you focused even if you might become frustrated. 8) Isolate Yourself Become a hermit and stay away from other people if you want to get work done. Unless your work is based on other people they will only break your focus. Create a private space and refuse to talk to anyone until your work is finished. Put a sign on your door to steer away drop-ins and don’t answer your phone. 9) Healthy Body, Sharper Mind What you put into your body affects the way you concentrate. Nobody would expect peak performance if they showed up drunk to work. But if you allow yourself to get chronic sleep deprivation, overuse stimulants like caffeine or eat dense, fatty foods your concentration will suffer. Try to cut out one of your unhealthy habits for just thirty days to see if there is a difference in your energy levels. I’ve found even small steps can create dramatic changes in my ability to focus. 10) Be Patient Before I write an article, I often sit at my desk for a fifteen or twenty minutes before I put finger on the keyboard. During this time I feel a strong urge to leave or do something else. But I know that if I am patient, I’ll stumble upon an idea to write about and enter a state of flow. Without a little patience, you can’t take advantage of flow when it rushed through you. If you need strong concentration I recommend periods of 90-120 minutes. Any less than that and you will waste too much time getting started before the flow can continue. More than this is possible to sustain focus, but you will probably benefit from a quick break. These are the general guidelines for concentration, studying well or doing your job. Regards.
