I am a 39 year old male. I have never had sex. In d past I was used to smoke marijuana and consume alcohol too. It has been an year since I hv been a teetotaller. At the age of 28, I had got the opportunity to hv sec but could not as the moment I was ready my erection went off. At age age of 36 again I got the opportunity twice but then the same happened. Now I am into a stable relationship. I want sex now. Its not that I do not get erection or its a case of erectile dysfunction. Also on getting second opportunity to hv sex I consumed a pill vigora for stable erection but that did not work. Suggest what could be d possible cause. What precaution should I take to make it happen. Thanx n regards,

The center of sex is in the mind and not in the organs. The fear of outcome in any action hampers it. So the performance pressure, you are putting on yourself is causing the current problem just go with a mind-set of having good time and not as if you are going for a competitive exam, where you should outscore others! also don't fear of losing her. Just relax.

I am suffering from depression, anxiety, restlessness, feeling of helplessness. Life is losing its meaning. No suicidal tendency but unworthiness. Help me with homeopathy if possible.

Hi everyone I want to know that if pain is inevitable why we are afraid of pain, now everyday lot of people die and accidents happenings all around the world but I am shocked to see how these people tolerate pain and fear of death. I am very much coward and I am very afraid of slight pain, even I do not like getting injection and I avoid many of the things due to pain, I also know that no pain no gain but I am still frightened of pain and I do not like getting out of comfort zone as it is painful and also I hate pain I am lazy and I want to get rid of laziness but its really very painful and even if we want to achieve something like good grades or mastering a skill we have to undergo pain so if success requires pain so why people avoid pain why I am so afraid of pain as each and every person is undergoing pain so how I can prepare myself for facing pain or getting out of comfort zone or to tolerate physical pain.

Your question is a very existential one, which means you are asking a question about an experience which all of us go through in everyday lives and is of philosophical concern for all of us. No one wants pain. Try to see that it is in the nature of pain that it is avoided. Pain implies something which discomforts us or which makes us at unease. Everyone wants to be happy and pleasurable all the time. But this is not so in real sense. Nature consists of bipolarities where each and every phenomena has an equal opposite. People who can experience pleasure only experience pain. Schizophrenic individuals do not experience much pain because they are devoid of pleasure too. Therefore, for experience of appropriate pleasure, an equal share of painful experiences is must. Since your question is much philosophical so I am answering that way. Your second problem is laziness that you mentioned. Laziness is a sign of creativity too. You seem to think deeply about your condition and due to this you seem to bother about your present condition. You see yourself as lazy and unproductive. But this is how nature is. Nature is lazy too. Do you see any deadline in nature's functioning? Nature's phenomena happen on their own. More important for nature is Harmony with other things around. You should also look for the same in your life. Harmony! You want to come out of your comfort zone which means you want a change in your life. But as I can see, your thinking shows that life is too difficult to overcome even few minor issues. You see everything as cumbersome and a burden on you. You are surrounded by a lot of pain. Pain is what you see in you life everywhere. Moving ahead and looking back - there is pain everywhere. Slightest change for you means bearing a lot of pain. You are preoccupied by existential concerns of how to make meaning out of your life. This is why you find yourself lazy because you see that everyone around you is taking efforts to become active and successful and competitive but you are not among those. You find yourself different from others, unique in several aspects. Even success is aversive for you. You seem to be a thinker kind of a person who wants to think and reflect on life. Let me tell you. This thinking style is your asset. Your life will make a deeper meaning for you in long run but everything will run slowly. The reason is, unlike others, you are able to see the meaninglessness of life. At the very core, life has no meaning and you are able to sense this. This makes your life burdensome and worthless. Life has meaning but at the same time it s meaningless - another dichotomy. People who are running for success only want pleasure and hence they experience pain too in achieving success. But they are not able to see the other side of life. You can feel that. Most people only want to see meaning in life and hence they seem selfish and active. But you see the other side. You see life's meaninglessness and hence you feel pain more. They are just busy in seeking pleasure so they suffer more. But believe me, you are not suffering rather living life. You live pain, people suffer pain - thats the difference. Your approach is more deeper than of most people. Stay with this approach and way of life and your life will find meaning. No specific solution will work.

Hi, I understand you are undergoing a difficult situation. Your sister needs psychiatric medication along with psychotherapy, vocational training or activities in a systematic way to get better. Yoga, Walking, learning new hobbies and venting out her emotions are all necessary. Please get the guidance from the nearest counselor or medical practitioner to move forward in a right direction.

I am 21 year old man. I am not able to sleep at night. I am little in depression. So what should I do?

I am 21 year old man. I am not able to sleep at night. I am little in depression. So what should I do?
You must deal with your depression with a counselor and if that person advises you to meet with a doctor, please do so without discontinuing the counseling. For the sleep problems you may try some of the following: In your case particularly, do not sleep during the day; don’t even lie down. Go for regular exercise (breathing through your nostrils only) at a fixed time (at about 6 am) every day, whether you sleep or not. You must develop this habit of sleeping by 10 pm latest every night and wake up at a uniform time by 6 am every morning, even if you do not get sleep. If you do not get sleep, just lie down and if you have a bed lamp (or you could get one) lie down and read something light but not exciting. Your eyes will tire and you will fall asleep. If you like you may also put on light and soft music with the sleep function on. Depending on whether you are a visual or auditory person, you may watch TV in a lying down position until you feel sleepy. Have a warm bath before going to bed (for some people a cold bath at night seems to induce sleep! If you are one of them, please do so). Place the head side of your bed in a North-South position. The room must be as dark as possible and there should be no electronic items that give off even a light LED glow. There must be ample ventilation in the room. Avoid strong odors, except lavender, on your body or in the room, or on your sheets and clothes. There should not be any live plants in your bedroom. Sleep with the lightest of clothes or without any clothing. When lying down to sleep, lie down on your left ear as much as possible. Do not sleep directly under an overhead fan. You must eat a good breakfast, a fairly light lunch, and an early dinner, which should be a very light meal. Whatever you eat in the other meals, have only a pure carbohydrate meal at night with any vegetables, and preferably before 8 pm. Do not drink much liquids after or near about dinner time. When lying down to sleep you may use the 4-7-8 breathing pattern of sleep inducement i.e. breathe in for four counts through your nostril only, hold for 7 counts, and exhale with a whoosh sound, through your mouth only, for 8 counts. Repeat this four times in the morning and just before you sleep at night. If you know Emotional Freedom Technique or EFT (check this out either on YouTube or Google), then please practice this too for sleep induction. Self-hypnosis and slow relaxation techniques, at night will be tremendously useful. Acupuncture or acupressure will both be very useful too. Pray last thing at night before you sleep.

Good. Introspection is the first step to success. Since you can reason yourself that drinking is a bad habit, it will be easy for you to get rid of it. Avoidance of difficult situation and preconceived estimation of other's reaction cause people to indulge in unhelpful habits. If you pick up biographies of great people you will find that after lot of failures and consistent effort towards desired goals led them to achieve, what they are today. Board exams are important in getting admission for pursuing higher studies. How you want yourself to be looked upon as is more imortant than that. Sometimes self identity and image are affected by low self esteem. Life is a journey and live it to its brim. You cannot predict your future.

Dear lybrate-user, Welcome to Lybrate. Alcohol addiction also comes under abuse and addiction. If you’re ready to stop the substance and willing to get the support you need, you can recover from addiction and abuse —no matter how bad the addiction or how powerless you feel. The first step in treating addiction is accepting that you have a problem. Confronting an addiction and accepting responsibility for your actions isn’t easy. But it’s a necessary step on the road to treatment and recovery. You should then consult a psychiatrist / psychologist who fill follow this treatment. 1. Detoxification using medicines. 2. Behavior modification with the help of therapies. 3. Counseling. 4. Medication to sustain and 5. Long term support. These given steps are essential for any addict to get effectively rid of addiction. Therefore, you need to stick to the treatment plan and cooperate with your psychiatrist / psychologist. Take care.

Dear doctors, over thinking and confusion are also called stress? Is Over thinking or confusion also called stress?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

Dear doctors, over thinking and confusion are also called stress? Is Over thinking or confusion also called stress?
They are not called stress: overthinking and confusion m ay be because of stress or may be the cause of stress. You are on medication to reduce stress so you need to work with a counselor too, and identify where this started and treat the same over a period of time. The combination is ideal for a good resolution. It is not enough to give these symptoms a name. It is vitally important to get the right therapy for them and resolve the problem. Normally, these symptoms are a sign of some fear. In counseling, I would advise you to get some help around this fear and resolve it for a good experience to life hereafter.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

Your husband is complicating matters by consuming alcohol after this surgery and also being a diabetic. You must take him to his doctor and find out from him how dangerous alcohol is for his condition. It seems that he has a strong oral issue which has switched from heavy eating to heavy drinking, after the surgery. This may indicate some issue stemming from his early childhood ? normally some deep pain that he is smothering by intoxication. He will need to be hospitalized to detoxify him and then for some extensive addiction counseling to resolve this for good. You could then both go for AA meetings and Al-anon support groups: the former for your husband and the latter for family members of alcoholics like you. You could also contact me for the book on addictions, for a fee of Rs. 250/- only.

I have a major problem when it comes to studying. I'm a pretty clever guy, I've always done well in exams but for these past two years my exam anxiety took a turn for the worse. Every time I start to prepare for my exams, everything just falls out of place. I can't study at all. I would have everything I need a good timetable, all my notes ready, plenty of time in advance and then it all goes downhill from there. Whenever I try to study I get awful panic attacks. First it starts with "okay I'm going to try my best! I want to study for 15 minutes and finish these pages! I can do this! but for some reason it turns into paralyzing fear. I try to read over my notes but my mind shuts down, I start to lose breath and then feel so immensely nauseous that I end up having to leave my room because it feels like I'm about to throw up. The panic attack keeps on getting worse and I end up walking around the entire house through all the rooms for hours just feeling like I'm unable to breathe and control my thoughts, not being aware that I'm actually doing this and that it's been hours. Then I start to feel incredibly incompetent and pathetic and cry, whilst still panicking. At the end of the day I would have spent hours without end panicking and crying, even to the point where I can't bring myself to go back to my room (where I study) to try again. The day would have gone to waste and the self-hatred begins to unleash, making it all worse. It's not that I don't want to study. I actually really want to do well and feel proud of myself. I don't understand why this happens every single time to the point where it's a few days before the exam and the panic attacks have become much worse. One more big problem is that I experience very much negative thoughts and vulgar thoughts even about god. Without any reason. The problem is that my parents think that this is all a silly act and that it stems from a lack of proper time management and procrastination. I have exams in 15 days and I have still enough time to ace them if I can bring myself to stop panicking. All this happens with high intensity when I am far away from my home i mean I lived in hostel in a city away from my home. But when I am home then intensity is reduced still I can't study I plan much but study a little. please help.

Tremors, feeling anxious or nervous, sense of panic, sweating, increased heartbeat, feeling of impending doom, stomach discomfort, dizziness etc are signs of anxiety. These can be debilitating. If the anxiety us overwhelming, consult a psychiatrist at the earliest. With the right medication and counseling, it is likely your symptoms will improve. Other than that, try yoga, deep breathing, meditation, moderate exercise, progressive muscular relaxation and guided meditation. If you want better results while studying, revision is the key. Repeated revision consolidates the information in the brain and helps to retain the information. Other than that, try a daily exercise of recalling your entire day in as much detail as possible before you sleep. Initially only important or superficial details are recalled, but with practice minor details can also be recalled. Be more organized; make lists. Use acronyms and mnemonic devices to help you remember. Take 45 minute slots followed by a 5-15 minute break. Eat and at proper times. Drink plenty of water. Find time for exercise or meditation. Keep time for proper revision at end of study session. Revise before you sleep.

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.
