Dear lybrate user. I can understand. You are in love with your wife and she loves you. But she do not interact positively with your family members. These are initial stages of your married life. You have to be a little bit strict in some matters like your family matters. Take care.

Spend your time in nice activities like nice books and articles , and avoid cheap and flickering pleasure of smoking weed which can damage your life. Smoking weed is an intoxicant which is bad for body, mind and well-being. One should be ready to realize the bad effects, then one can avoid smoking weeds by engaging mind and body in more constructive activities Please remember that Smoking weed is toxic to your body , mind and well-being. The earlier you can stop this habit , the healthier it can be for you. The lower taste and sinful habit of smoking can be stopped by replacing it with the higher taste. Simply read nice books which give you a higher meaning to life than chemicals in smoking. In place of smoking, spend your time by doing yoga. To know about sources of books and articles kindly contact me

Hello, I am sorry for your loss. Life becomes hard when you loose your close one. But we need to cope up with the situation. Keeping everything with yourself will increase the burden. You need to talk to people you trust or make new friends even if you don't like it. Try and express your feelings in a way you like. Distract your self to the other activities that you like. You need to support yourself. It will take time but you will come over it. All the best.

I am 40 Years old and 15 Years of alcohol addiction, I take 360 Ml daily, Now I want to withdraw this habit, as my target of enjoying all Kind of valid Drugs have been fulfilled. Usually I could control 3-4 days without Alcohol, but after this I start thinking that I am not addicted and than I again start taking the same. Need to know the side effects of withdrawal.

This is the deception very artfully proposed by the unconscious mind and at a time that you are vulnerable it will convince you that you can quit whenever you want and that it is easy. Then you fall into the trap all over again. You need to identify why you need to drink, and go back into your childhood to find out other influences on your personality that makes you prone to addiction. Meet with an addiction counselor and work with them to sort out this drive. Your already display the classic tendency to first obsess about it and then compulsively feel driven to meet that need. The simplest thing to do is to do some other interesting activity during the evening times. Meet your oral need with some other non-intoxicating drink like soups, juices, and sodas with lime, etc. If you think that you will find it very difficult, then admit yourself to a hospital and go for de-addiction: which normally lasts for about two weeks. Then follow that up with addiction counseling from a professional for at least three years to completely get rid of the habit. If this is also not enough, then admit yourself into a de-addiction center and stay there for at least 6 months and after that attend counseling with a professional. There are medicines that help with the drinking just to ease the initial craving. 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 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. Your 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 and have made some unhealthy adaptations to somehow cope. Make a serious plan with the family and whoever else’s support you can get and act on it fast. As a combination these two therapies (counseling and rehabilitation) will aid in dealing with the addiction. It will however take a long time to completely come off of the enslavement: three years to be exact with therapy. Alcohol withdrawal syndrome can be a life-threatening condition in people who have been drinking heavily and then either stop or significantly reduce their alcohol consumption. Symptoms can begin as early as two hours after the last drink, persist for weeks, and range from mild anxiety and shakiness to severe complications, such as seizures and delirium tremens (also called DTs). The death rate from DTs -- which are characterized by confusion, rapid heartbeat, and fever -- is estimated to range from 1% to 5%. Because alcohol withdrawal symptoms can rapidly worsen, it's important to seek medical attention even if symptoms are seemingly mild. Appropriate alcohol withdrawal treatments can reduce the risk of developing withdrawal seizures or DTs. It's especially important to see a doctor if you have other health conditions such as infections, heart disease, lung disease, or a history of seizures. If seizures, fever, severe confusion, hallucinations, or irregular heartbeats occur, take the patient to an emergency room

45 years is a long time for tobacco?s chemicals to be coursing through your system. It has probably caused a lot of damage already. But it is never too late to stop. Although I do not know your reason to want to stop but it does sound compelling enough for you to want to even be jailed to keep you off of the cigarettes. You could instead consider admitting yourself into a hospital to detoxify your system to remove the physical craving to some extent and then you can work on the psychological conditioning and dependence. You can also admit yourself into any naturopathy or Ayurvedic institutes to help with the cessation of the smoking habit. They will gladly welcome you, and have had good success rates. You must stop smoking abruptly and immediately. You may use substitutes like nicotine chewing gums, nicotine patches, and electronic cigarettes to ease the craving in the beginning. Nicotine is the addictive substance in tobacco smoke that causes the dependence. There are various conditions tight through the day that your smoking is adapted to and at those times the craving will become very high. You must plan to distract your mind and your body with something more attractive and interesting to do and consume to temporarily stave off the urge. You need to give your decision to quit, wide publicity and keep the company of non-smokers for a long time. Start a good exercise program and healthy eating habits and diet. Work with a counselor through contracts, where both are obliged to support each other through the quitting phase. Do a complete medical check to see what health concerns have been caused by the extensive smoking and take care of those issues too. The decision to quit is a very good starting point, and the damage caused so far could be reversed to a large extent, adding a good many years to your life and saving on all the wasteful expenditure.

Dear, You must be able to understand Concentration, attention span, recollection and distraction. If you are able to watch a movie for two hours continuously, if you are able to play a game for an hour, then you do not have any concentration problems. You can't be attentive towards your studies because you are not interested in it. You are able to watch movie and play game because you are interested in it. Human cannot be attentive towards anything for more than 10 minutes. Then you should study in such a way that your attention is continued and make the subjects are interesting to you. Effective learning techniques should help you. Recollection depends on anxiety, stress and other physical and circumstantial factors. Distractions while studying are plentiful. You should be able to overcome distractions or avoid distractions. Please understand the above. Change your study style and attitude accordingly. Please post a private question to me and I will help you with "effective learning" techniques. Avocados, Beetroots, Blueberries, Broccoli. Celery, Coconut Oil, Dark Chocolate etc are good for improving concentration. Take care.

I am 22 years old. I don't know whether to call my problem depression, jealousy or stubborn. I am having a friend who is best friend to me. I am also a very good friend to her but I don't feel my importance in her life any more since the time she became close to one of my other friend. They use to chat at least one hour daily. And I don't know what to say after 10 min. I feel that I am not good enough to be her best friend as the other guy. I tried to break there friendship (not a good hearted deed I know) but they became even more close. I asked her not to talk to him she said-" he has not done anything wrong, is a good person and I love talking to him moreover he has not taken your place but has created his own" I REALLY UNDERSTAND THAT. And don't want to break there friendship from heart. But I was so depressed so stubborn that I taunted her for ruining my life every time we talked. Then too she tried to make every thing right. Now time has come that I loose my mental stability when ever I seen them both online at the same time and say something that ruin my friendship even more. I just can't control it. I don't want to say any thing but I feel restless I breath heavily my heart goes heavy blood pumping in my head. I want to control it please help.

You are experiencing extreme, may be pathological jealousy. Obviously you understand it is irrational and mean. But you are too overwhelmed by the emotional reaction to deal with it properly. First thing you need to do is learn how to relax your body and calm down at least a little when you feel jealous. Right now you are reacting emotionally. Your body is going in fight mode, as if there is a real physical danger to your survival and you have to act now. You can change that. Learn to control your breathing. That is the easiest. Take slow deep breaths. Practice this when you are fine and use it when you feel angry or anxious. Drink a glass of cold water. Wash your face. Next, stop following your'friend' on social media. Stop checking her activities on facebook, whatsapp, etc. Take a couple of hours'off' everyday, where you switch off your phone and computer, especially during the time when you know you will talk to her or spy on her. Talk to her in person. Chats often create more misunderstanding. You probably have feelings for her, you may want to take your friendship to another level, you probably want to date her. Tell her how you feel. Let her take her time to process and decide. Listen to her and finally, respect her decision. It is her life. If you can't take it, walk away with civility and dignity. It's ok. You will find a lot of nice people in your life if you are nice to them.

Depression in Women- Be Aware No Beware!

Depression in Women- Be Aware No Beware!

Mood swings bother you and everyone around you!

Everyone experiences disappointment or sadness in life. When the "down" times last a long time or interfere with your ability to function, you may be suffering from a common medical illness called depression. According to research, women experience twice the rate of depression as men, regardless of race or ethnic background. An estimated 1 in 8 women will face major depression in their lifetimes. Despite high prevalence rates people are reluctant to acknowledge clinical depression as a disorder that should be evaluated and treated.

Researchers suspect that, rather than a single cause, many factors unique to women's lives play a role in developing depression. These factors include - genetic and biological, reproductive, hormonal, abuse and oppression, interpersonal and certain psychological and personality characteristics. However the stages in a woman's life can also subject her to depression- menstruation, pregnancy, child birth and menopause. Given below are some of the signs and symptoms that you may be experiencing related to your life stage.

Premenstrual Dysphonic Disorder - This affects around 3-8% of the women. In this behavioral changes are observed in women 5 days prior to the commencement of their menstrual cycle. The common symptoms are:

  • Lack of interest in common activities, such as hobbies

  • Moderate to severe feelings of tension or anxiety with low energy

  • Mood Swings , such as feeling overly sensitive

  • Moderate to severe feelings of hopelessness or depression, feeling overwhelmed

  • Physical symptoms, such as weight gain, joint or muscle pain, or a headache

  • Changes in sleeping patterns, such as sleeping too much or too little

  • Changes in eating habits or food cravings

  • Problems focusing or concentrating

  • Unusual irritability or anger

Management:  Be calm and relaxed. Keep a check and monitor your cycle and emotional outbursts. If you notice some continuity it's important that you consult a specialist. Ignoring the issues can have an effect on your relationships. Be open and talk to your family and your partner about the same.

Pregnancy and Post Partum Mood Disorders- Pregnancy is a stage in which a woman's body is going through a number of hormonal changes. These changes can have a major effect on the mood and can increase the risk of developing depression. Even post pregnancy the risk doesn't end. The following are a list of symptoms. Be informed if you are pregnant or have just delivered a child.

  • Lifestyle or work changes resulting in relationship problems

  • Episodes of depression and irritability

  • Feeling of lack of social support and lost feeling

  • Mixed feelings about being pregnant

  • Feeling that pregnancy has pulled you down

Please note that a woman can feel depressed during pregnancy and the feeling can become worse post child birth. It affects 10-25% of women in India. It's important to understand that it's not just you but your body that is going through change. Hormonal fluctuations, psychological pressures and social support all attribute to the same. Be open and consult specialists. Also talk to your family and your spouse.

Peri Menopause and Menopause Depression- Risk of depression may increase during the transition to menopause, a stage called Peri menopause, when hormone levels may fluctuate erratically. Depression risk also may rise during early menopause or after menopause - both times when estrogen levels are significantly reduced.

Women need to aware that they are vulnerable to develop depression and need professional help to avoid it from causing personal and functional impairment.

Be informed and consult a Psychiatrist if you are experiencing any of the above.

Dear lybrate-user. You can make village action committee taking help from other like minded village people. Take help of women and other youngsters. Try to convince the smoking people. Definitely it will be not that easy and could take much time. But slowly and steadily, you will see the change. You can take help from the store people and request not to sell smoking ingredients etc. One step at a time, leads to success. Take care.
