no... isabgul is good to take and also increase the intake of lots of salad, fruits in your diet as well as drink lots of water. This problem is might be due to the side effects of the medicines. Do some kind of physical exercise for half an hour daily.

Sometimes I feel like sharing these with someone but then I can't, I can't open up in front of any of my friends, neither my boyfriend as he might misunderstand me, all I do is just cry and cry.

You seem to be suffering from Borderline Personality or Emotionally unstable personality. The cause is unknown but research suggests there is an interaction between adverse life events and genetic factors. Neurobiological research suggests that abnormalities in the frontolimbic networks are associated with many of the symptoms There is a pattern of sometimes rapid fluctuation from periods of confidence to despair, with fear of abandonment and rejection. There is a particularly strong tendency towards suicidal thinking and self-harm. They have love-hate relationship with close ones. Transient psychotic symptoms, including brief delusions and hallucinations, may also be present. It is also associated with substantial impairment of social, psychological and occupational functioning and quality of life. People with emotionally unstable personality disorder are particularly at risk of suicide. Its course is variable and, although many people recover over time. Kindly consult a psychiatrist for remedy.

My wife has panic attacks while traveling in vehicles . In trains also she has such attacks but only in general compartments but she is ok in AC coaches. Due to this anxiety of traveling she is distracted from doing her daily chores as a homemaker. Please advice

You need to first get her evaluated by a psychiatrist to find out if its an anxiety disorder. If she is fine in AC coaches it may be anxiety due to specific event or place, like crowded place or for security in general compartments. It can be an insecurity which causes the anxiety like safety issues. That needs to be analyzed. If she is being dysfunctional take her to a psychiatrist for treatment. Simultaneous counseling is needed.

Dear, Tobacco is addictive. Cigarette also contains 4000+ carcinogenic chemicals other than nicotine. The best method is to leave it and continue with your will power. There are other methods like Nicotine Replacement therapy and pharmacotherapy combined. If you?re ready to stop smoking and willing to get the support you need, you can recover from nicotine addiction and abuse abuse?no matter how bad the addiction or how powerless you feel. The first step in treating nicotine 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 smoking. Therefore, you need to stick to the treatment plan and cooperate with your psychiatrist / psychologist. Take care.

Hi Team, I am trying to quit smoking from past 2 to 3 months but I am not able to do that. I've been stopping it for 2 to 3 days but again I am pulling towards it. please suggest me better ways to stop it in any manner. Thanks & Regards, Harish☺

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
That is how it is for most people who want to quit. They rarely succeed in the first attempt. So you must persevere and you will definitely succeed. I don't know how you attempted it the last time but do use some of these methods recommended: You have to quit cold turkey because the body and mind will torture you endlessly while attempting a reduction in smoking. The tobacco tar in cigarette smoke lines your lung with huge patches that make that portion dysfunctional. Your oxygen carrying capacity is jeopardized, and breathing is impinged on. But don’t be discouraged because it is not too late even now to reverse all the ill-effects of smoking. I don’t know what other organs could be damaged but do go for a thorough medical check-up to assess the effects of your abuse. Regarding improving your lungs, do a lot of aerobic exercise breathing through your nostrils only. Then there are a lot of deep breathing exercises in Yoga which you can learn too. Deep breathing cleanses your system and lungs and restores it to good health. Deep breathing uses the 80% of the lungs which are not normally used in normal breathing and even when exerting yourself. The greatest effect is in the lungs because this substance is processed through the respiratory system directly through the lung surface. When quitting, you must take one day at a time; though you must give up all smoking at once, and promptly. If you look too far ahead you will get discouraged and will give up. If you sit and count the number of days you have given up, that will also focus too much on achievement. You must focus on the here and now, on that day to be precise. After all quitting is not that easy due to many factors. So even if you fail one day, you must try and try again. Very few people succeed in their first attempt. Your persistence will eventually pay off. The urge to discontinue is hampered by many factors but the worst of them is the conditioning. In fact, these conditions can exist all through the day, unlike other addictions. But your desire to want to stop is the most important factor. It is important to find out about the ill-effects of smoking to have a reason that alarms you about continuing the habit. The information is really scary but true and you must remind yourself about this every day. The nicotine in tobacco smoke stimulates the heartbeat to raise the blood pressure in no time at all. So you must avoid it like the plague: it is just very bad medicine for you. In fact, it is highly toxic too. You will need to stop smoking or consuming any tobacco related items with immediate effect. You should start vigorous exercises, gradually increasing it over a period of time. Do deep breathing exercises every time you feel like smoking (try Yoga), and replace the oral urge with some healthy food substitute to satiate the need. You may also take hard candy or chew gum. If the urge is too strong, then use nicotine gums and nicotine patches, for a little while until the smoking drive reduces, substantially. You may also join Smokers Anonymous in your city where the support is really extraordinary for like-minded people who are also in the same situation. Keep yourself occupied or engaged with interesting activities during the times when it is most tempting. Keep the company of non-smokers for some time i.e. at least for the first 21 days. Above all announce it to everyone that you have quit smoking. Here’s a piece of very good advice: even if you accidentally/willfully take a cigarette, it is not the end of the world – you can start the cessation all over again. You must persevere with the best support until you defeat this addiction. Counseling is very useful in the initial stages and when temptations are at their highest. You could also join twitter2quit program and enjoy its success to give up smoking.

Dear Viraj, General Anxiety disorder treatment consists of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, life style changes, relaxation therapy and meditation. Once you learn how to manage your anxiety yourself with the help of the above treatment methods, You will be cured. The process is a bit lengthy and could take any period between one year to 2 years according to the depth of the anxiety problem and the circumstances at which the patient lives. Keep the period of treatment in mind, prepare yourself to take up the treatment and consult a psychologist online or in person. Take care.

Narcissistic Personality Disorder - Common Traits Revealed!

MD - Podiatrist
Psychiatrist, Lucknow
Narcissistic Personality Disorder - Common Traits Revealed!

While it is true that all our egos need some boosting from time to time, constantly nursing it to feel too proud about oneself and being too self-indulgent does not help. In plain words, that is what a narcissist does. The term finds its roots in Greek mythology where Narcissus was so absorbed with himself. This gradually got converted to Narcissism to indicate people (who, like him) became too self-obsessed.

By definition, it is applied to people who have a long-term pattern of grandiosity above themselves, either in fantasy or in actual behaviour. They constantly seek admiration, are too self-indulgent, and have a great degree of apathy towards almost everybody else.

The following are some traits that are usually found in people with this personality.

  1. They are preoccupied with fantasies where they see themselves with unlimited power, beauty, success, and brilliance.
  2. Have a false perception of superiority and do not associate with most people
  3. Completely lack apathy and do not usually connect with the feelings of people around them
  4. Have a grandiose opinion about themselves and think they are super-important in the lives of everybody around them
  5. Expect appreciation and praise, even if not worthy of it
  6. Think of themselves as special and unique
  7. Are considered arrogant and haughty by most people who associate with them
  8. Constantly seeks admiration and compliments
  9. Prone to exploiting relationships
  10. Enjoy flattery
  11. Inability to accept even small rejections
  12. Inability to take criticism
  13. Deep hidden feeling of insecurity and low self-esteem
  14. Can be very defensive and try to prove their point
  15. Fear of humiliation
  16. Very vulnerable, especially to rejections, humiliations
  17. Get enraged without specific reason to feel better and put down the other person
  18. If someone contradicts their view point, there could be major argument and even physical assault
  19. A combination of these features usually causes problems in relationships and friendships and affects their overall personal and professional lives. It is more common in males, and tends to decrease with age.

While initially narcissist may come across as extremely confident personalities, slowly it comes across as much more than that. While they do feel confident, at times, the confidence may not be true. It is just that feeling of self-importance which makes them to believe that what they are doing is right.

Causes: While there is no single cause leading to someone developing this personality, a combination of genetic, social, and psychological factors leads to this condition. Excessive pampering and/or criticism also can lead to this.

Treatment: This usually requires long-term counselling with people who are trained in handling such cases. They need to become less self-indulgent and more empathetic towards others, which takes time, but is not impossible.
 

I have depression but I did not know how it happened. My condition is miserable so in this regard I want to help from you.

Alcohol And Its Effect On Sexual Life

BUMS ( Mumbai ),H.E.S(pune),
General Physician, Mumbai
Alcohol And Its Effect On Sexual Life

Excess of anything is never healthy and the same applies in the case of alcohol. Alcohol experts have come to a conclusion that drinking too much alcohol reduces affects negatively in both the genders.

Alcohol Myth Busted

Since time immemorial, people have considered alcohol to be an aphrodisiac. However, this myth has been busted time and again by the side effects of excessive alcohol. On the contrary, alcohol is known to induce depression after consumption.

Alcohol, if consumed in unnatural quantity over a period of time can turn conditions like 'brewer's droop', which otherwise might be temporary into permanent impotence. Alcohol addiction is a cardinal sin for couples planning on having a baby. Women, whose bodies are much more sensitive and complex than a man's body, react greatly to even a small quantity of alcohol. Even government's guidelines on low-risk alcohol consumption unit do not guarantee no harm, and people are known to have taken much longer time to get pregnant and irregularity in their menstrual cycles even after abiding by the government's guidelines.

What Is Moderation?

No one is asking you to completely cut down on alcohol. But moderation should then be a religion for all the drinkers. Moderate drinking includes no more than 2 drinks per day (US. Centre for Disease Control and Prevention). The explanation is that your liver can act on alcohol at one standard size drink an hour, so heavy drinking means that too much alcohol for the liver to handle and hence unhealthy toxins are released in the body having an adverse effect on the sex life.

Some of the more common problems caused by alcohol in a couple's sex life are:

  • Long-term erectile dysfunction: The most common of all the problems, erectile dysfunction can most commonly be attributed to heavy drinking. 60% of men who are alcohol addicts are known to be suffering from loss of sexual appetite.
  • Ruined Families and relationships: Alcohol can be considered one of the biggest inducers of divorce among couples. It makes people less caring and more and more involved in their drinking antics. 90% of domestic violence incidents include alcohol.
  • Side effects of smoking: Drinking is usually accompanied by cigarettes and a cocktail of these two substances can be a deadly weapon against your sanity. For men below 40, erectile dysfunction primarily happens because of excessive smoking.
  • STDs: Alcohol consumption helps people shed their inhibition and cases of unprotected sex increases. It increases your chances of actually getting an STD. 50% of all impromptu sexual encounters happen in the presence of alcohol and 60% STD spread when alcohol is also in the picture. Young adults who consume alcohol at an alarming rate are 7 times more likely to indulge in unprotected sexual intercourse.

Hence, we see that alcohol addiction does not compliment healthy sex life and therefore people must toe in line at the right time to ensure the wellbeing of their lifestyle and sexual activities.

Hi there, When a person is suffering from problems like anxiety and depression, they lose interest in many things, including sex. You need to be supportive and patient. Help her through her recovery, rather than being impatient and being pushy about the issue of sex. As she recovers, her libido will come back as well. Till then focus on cultivating a health relationship.

My fiance is having a best friend and he proposed her in December 2014 she had recently separated from her boyfriend. Both my fiance and that girl are school friends. She initially said yes and said he would be perfect for her. But later in Feb 2015 she said she is not getting feelings for him and she was in love with someone else. He insisted that she should take time she behaved rudely with him but he waited and said take your time. This continued till December 2105 then he accepted her as friend he continues to be her best friend. She behaves very rudely sometimes with him and he even cries for her. But still he thinks she is her best friend and he will take care of her. Then in Feb 2016 family introduced me to him and we said yes to each other after 2-3 meeting he told me about his past and he said she is still her best friend because she is very nice girl. He was happy that he has me and her in his life two angels in his life. Later on I found that he gets upset if she says something to him and he cries and he fears that she may leave if he will something to her he always pleases her and gift her to make her remember him. He said to me she is important in my life. He loves me I can see that but he sometimes behave rudely with me but he never behaves in that way with her. I told him that she is important in her life more than me but he said he loves me more than her. I told him that you won't want to accept the truth. He loves me he cares for me whenever he behaves rudely he says sorry. But I don't know what is happening with him and it will be going to difficult after marriage and I accepted their relation because I know he wants both in her life but sometimes I feel it is going to change my nature after marriage. I told him to consult a psychiatrist. He said he needs no psychiatrist and said no one cares for his feelings.

Dear Lybrate user thanks for the query ,Its good that both of you love and understand each other, its obvious that your fiance have soft feeling for that girl and its more than normal friendship, you must talk to your fiance about this matter ,you should give him some space and time on the other hand you should also consider the bonding between them otherwise it can be problem for you in future. There should be balance in every relation ,if at any time again that girl will say yes to your fiance then? Just consider on all points before marriage .if you need my help you can contact me .take care.

Hi my self Nazeer, I have short temper memory problem, I have taken many medicine but no changes. What should I do.

Masters in Clinical Psychology
Psychologist, Lucknow
Hi lybrate-user, Do the following: 1. Think before you speak In the heat of the moment, it's easy to say something you'll later regret. Take a few moments to collect your thoughts before saying anything — and allow others involved in the situation to do the same. 2. Once you're calm, express your anger As soon as you're thinking clearly, express your frustration in an assertive but nonconfrontational way. State your concerns and needs clearly and directly, without hurting others or trying to control them. 3. Get some exercise Physical activity can help reduce stress that can cause you to become angry. If you feel your anger escalating, go for a brisk walk or run, or spend some time doing other enjoyable physical activities. 4. Take a timeout Give yourself short breaks during times of the day that tend to be stressful. A few moments of quiet time might help you feel better prepared to handle what's ahead without getting irritated or angry. 5. Identify possible solutions Instead of focusing on what made you mad, work on resolving the issue at hand. Remind yourself that anger won't fix anything and might only make it worse.

I am the only person in my class during college, also now in work having anxiety, mind related problem. But i am not mad. I am taking treatment frm psychiatrist but no solution.

I take leave often from school days. I could not change myself. Took medicines but no improvement. Is this problem due to my birth defects, when I was in my moms stomach? Is this due to genes of my dad, mom? What is your suggestion, advice? Should I consult genetic doctors for any surgery? Doctors said due to chemical changes in brain [serotonin] may be reason. Even after taking psychiatric medicines, no improvement. Slight OCD is there for 11 years. Still not cured. Do you know any doctors in chennai to consult and find solution? I have seen many doctors but no solution. Waiting 4 your reply.

I drink 3 times a week and my age is 23 so do i have any side effects for this in future?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Well you do not state how much you drink each time. If you take two drinks at a time, then it is not a problem immediately. If you do not have much self-control in other areas, then one day you will start losing control in your drinking too. Or if you are susceptible to stress, you will increase your drinking. If you have any preconditions to addictions, you will be prone to increase the quantity and frequency of drinking. There are two aspects to consider for addictions: dependence and tolerance. The former is when the mind and the body become too dependent on alcohol to face life, or situations, or stresses. Then you cannot give it up easily or function normally without it. The second feature is that of tolerance, which is common to all addictive substances: as time goes by you will need more quantities to get the same effect. In which case, you will gradually increase the consumption of alcohol over time till you become enslaved to it. If you try to stop it, you will experience withdrawal symptoms which can be very severe too. Regarding side effects there are many, if you go into heavy drinking: you will get an enlarged heart, brain damage with heavy drinking, late to work and lots of absenteeism, accidents while driving or otherwise, marriage problems, health difficulties including cancer of several organs, loss of employments, loss of libido and sexual functions, loss of opportunities etc. The list can go on and on. If you want to read more about addictions you may contact me with a payment of Rs. 250/- for my book on it. Postage is free.
