My friend nikita. She's 28 and has a male best friend since 6 years. They knew each other since childhood, became friends through Facebook, exchanged their numbers and they both became good friends. They started talking everyday and also had long conversations at night. Then one day, when they were having their usual talks at night, her friend said something to her that only people in relationship say or do. Nikita thought that he's kidding and didn't respond and the guy slept. Next day again they spoke as usual and the guy gave this reason that he slept unknowingly last night. And he behaved like he don't know what happened yesterday. Nikita thought he might be sleepy and have said that, so she did not say anything to him. But this continued. Nikita already had a crush on him since childhood. So now when he said the same thing to her she couldn't stop herself and started responding. Nikita was in a dilemma that may be he likes her. But they never used to talk the same way during day time. So this went on for 6-7 months. Then one day the guy said to her that he likes a girl and he started describing that girl. Nikita thought that he's talking about her but unfortunately she was not that girl. Nikita has till now never asked him why he said her all those things and why did he said those 3 words to her when he did not mean anything. And the guy behaves the same like he used to during the day times (as if nothing had happened last night). Finally now the guy is with some other girl and my friend still thinks that he has a habit of talking in sleep. She is still thinking why did this happen. She keeps on asking this question to herself that was she in a relationship with someone and they broke up or someone (her best friend) made fool of her. And is it possible that someone can say the same type of things in sleep everyday till 6-7 months. They are still friends. He moved on in his life but my friend is not happy. She can't sleep at night, doesn't like to talk to anyone, doesn't like to eat, cries often, doesn't like to go out anywhere. Also she was a case of scoliosis and now she has operated. Due to post operation she can't be busy in other activities. Also she has suffered a lot from scoliosis. Please suggest what should she do now. Thank you.

This boy seems to have had crush for nikita and impulsively proposed. Then he might have met what he felt was a better girl and made up excuses of talking in night. No person unconsicously talks the same at night or proposes. Another possibility is the boy was manipulaitve. Whatever it is, nikita would get back to her normalcy with a short course of antidepressants and CBT (Cognitive Behavior Therapy from a psychiatrist. All the best.

The laziness and dullness is because of the depression you are going through. Figure out if there is a reason try to resolve, take my help if you want. Start exercising atleast 30 minutes daily to feel better. If you feel its severe you can seek treatment- medication and also psychotherapy side by side.

Is Marijuana bad for health? Please tell me.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist,
Until the dust settles down with the numerous studies that are both positive and negative, we will need to wait and see to take a definitive stand. Not much is still known about its entertainment value or benefits. There is a lot of hype by those who want to legitimize it and those who love it: there is a bias because of their selfish motives. The antagonists on the other hand willfully propagate the dangers, sometimes without substantiated reasons to dissuade its use. If you know it is harmful why would you want to play with it. The obsession and compulsive use is when you become addicted to the substance. Just for your information here?s what WebMD has to say: ?No matter how it gets into your system, it affects almost every organ in your body, and your nervous system and immune system, too. When you smoke pot, your body absorbs THC right away. (If you eat a baked good or another item, it may take much longer for your body to absorb THC, because it has to break down in your stomach before it enters your bloodstream). You may notice changes in your body right after you smoke. The effects usually stop after 3 or 4 hours. Smoking pot can increase your heart rate by as much as two times for up to 3 hours. That?s why some people have a heart attack right after they use marijuana. It can increase bleeding, lower blood pressure, and affect your blood sugar, too. We don?t yet know if marijuana is linked to higher odds of getting lung cancer. But the process does irritate your lungs -- which is why regular pot smokers are more likely to have an ongoing cough and to have lung-related health problems like chest colds and lung infections. Other physical effects of marijuana include: ? Dizziness ? Shallow breathing ? Red eyes and dilated pupils ? Dry mouth ? Increased appetite ? Slowed reaction time (If you drive after using marijuana, your risk of being in a car accident more than doubles.) If you?re a long-time user, you can have physical withdrawal symptoms -- like cravings, irritability, sleeplessness, and less appetite -- when you stop.? It being a hallucinogen, it can lead to hallucinations and even a phenomenon called ?cross hallucinations? i.e. for example, you can see sounds and hear colors!!!

Usually, there will some discomfort initially in a new place. The decision to send you there must have been a well thought-out matter perhaps even involving you. So when you look back and consider all the pros and cons of that decision and find somethings terribly wrong only then can your request be considered. If you leave now, it will definitely appear to your aunt and uncle that you do not favor their place and that may be an insult. So if you are absolutely sure, talk to your parents first and see how they react to your desire to leave and if they see good reasons to support you then only it is possible for you to move. If there are things that can be done to make adjustments on either side then look at that option too and see what can be worked out. Only in an impossible situation should you give up on this arrangement. Ultimately, even if these things can be done, it is your studies that are of paramount importance: Nothing should jeopardise your studies. So do reason it out with your folks before making and conveying this decision.

Alcohol in Pregnancy: Is it Safe?

Certification in IVF & Infertility, Diplomate Gynae Laparoscopy, Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (MRCOG), MD - Obstetrics & Gynaecology, MBBS
Gynaecologist, Ghaziabad
Alcohol in Pregnancy: Is it Safe?

Most people will give you a blatant No. And they are quite right to do so. But if you have been a habitual offender who can't unwind without their drink, pregnancy is going to be a big problem. So does the rule stand in all cases? What if you drank when you didn't know you were pregnant yet? What if you had a light drink here and there, will it literally spell disaster? Let's find out.

Contradictory advice everywhere: Most doctors will advice you to stay away completely from alcohol as soon as that first positive emerges in your test. Others may give you a little leeway and let you have an occasional drink. There are friends who'll confess to have cheated during their pregnancy and snuck in a beer or two and say that their kids turned out just fine. There are other friends will scorn on you for even thinking such a thing. Same goes for your relatives. Like all things in pregnancy, random advice will just not work.

How much can you drink? Let's assume that you are confident nothing will happen and want to be adventurous and give it a cautious try. Danish researchers have some good news for you. Some studies have shown that low to moderate consumption of alcohol does not harm the baby. In fact, in 2012, Danish researchers released a highly publicized study that found no major problems in children below 5 years whose mothers had consumed 1- 8 alcoholic drinks a week during pregnancy.

Unfortunately, not all research is made equal. With pregnancy, each mother, each child and progression of each pregnancy is different. It really has to be on a case by case basis and nothing can be taken on face value. Most people will still advise you to completely go off alcohol as there is 'no safe' amount during pregnancy. Some women have a larger quantity of the enzyme that breaks down alcohol. If a woman with lower levels of this enzyme drinks alcohol, it is more likely to harm her unborn child as the alcohol will remain in her bloodstream longer.

How alcohol can affect your child?

A number of disorders that can affect your child when in the womb and even after because of alcohol consumption. These disorders are collectively called 'Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder'. It is characterized by increased risk in miscarriage and stillbirth. It can also result in the baby having low birth weight and increase problems with learning, speech, attention span, language and hyperactivity. Alcohol consumption may also affect girl child and a baby boy differently. While both may turn out to have aggressive and delinquent behaviour, girls are more likely to develop mental health problems too.

If you are unable to give up on alcohol, you need to immediately get professional help to overcome your addiction. Also note that the term 'non-alcoholic' beverage is misleading as they can contain trace amounts of it. Consult a doctor today on which drinks are safe for you.

Sir! I don't feel interest in study. I prepare for civil services examination. I have been facing failure for 5 years consecutively. That's why I have lost my confidence. I don't want to study. Is this symptom of depression?

MD, MBBS
General Physician, Noida
Yes. You have loss of motivation because of repeated failures. You do also have despair. I.e. You have lost hope for success in your subconscious mind. Both lack of motivation & presence of despair have caused loss of interest in studies which further deteriorated your performance on day today basis resulting into a feeling of inability to clear exam even this time eroding your confidence. All these together have resulted into a feeling or state of hopelessness & helplessness which if lasted for longer time results into neurotic or endogenous depression due to permanent changes in receptors of neurotransmitters in brain. Take psychological counseling and psychotherapy for motivation enhancement and removing hopelessness with or without medication.

Hi lybrate-user, you have to take it without any breaks in between, slowly and gradually doctor will taper it. Have patient just like for bp diabetes people take medicine for lifelong same way, depression medicine is for longer duration but if depression is not that severe at some point it will be discontinued. Psychotherapy will help you a lot along with medication.

You are in a very complicated situation: having bipolar can increase your sex drive to very high levels. In your case it has stoked the desire but not the performance. In any case seeking love for your sister-in-law is not permissible and it cannot be one-way, either. Fortunately, she does not know it is a blessing. Neither should you think that marrying someone else to forget her is going to solve the problem: you seem like you cannot fulfill your sexual desires and cannot consummate the marriage. So can you see how complicated your problem is? first things first; you need to see how well your treatment is working out for you. Secondly, you must work with a counselor too to maximize the benefits of combined therapies. You must also discuss your sexual fantasies with the counselor and get some guidance as to how to handle it. In a probable situation you may be asked to leave this house or ask the brother and his wife to shift to another home! you must also discuss if the sexual problems you are having is a result of the effects of the medication, and see if alternative medications may be tried. For you to be in a position to marry someone, you must get well and have proper employment etc. The starting of a family entails some genetic counseling, where it may ill-advised to have children. I really respect you for having kept your control around your sister-in-law, and it is recommended take effective action to maintain it so. Bipolar can be a crippling disease if not treated, and if treated early, the prognosis is good. Comply with all the medical prescriptions and work in tandem with a counselor for a long time and learn coping skills and techniques to handle the daily challenges you will face. There are certain adaptations that will suit you during the elation phase and there are certain behaviors that are required during the depressed phases. In the meantime you can do certain things that will give you benefits anyway. Emotional therapy will alleviate a lot of the problems faced in this condition because it is a mood disorder. You need to particularly look at your levels of anger both for its reasonableness and to express it in appropriate manner. I suspect that much of this anger may have origins in early childhood that you may never be aware of now. Talk to your parents and explore that angle. This information will help the counselor too. Also you will need to check whether there is any genetic factor involved. You must exercise regularly, eat healthily and sleep normally too. If your motivation and cooperation is good much can be achieved. You must have a time-structured schedule filled with interesting and reasonable activities and it must be monitored for compliance and delivery. The reason I say this is that many times you will be inclined to have grandiose notions and confidently believe that you can do without the medication, and other things like marrying your sister-in-law. This will set you back many months in the treatment and delay and sabotage the recovery: forewarned you are forearmed. If this combination of medication with therapy is maintained for at least three years without any episodes or breakdowns, it is possible to taper the medication in consonance with the doctor.
