My parents separated when I was 3. I have been victim of domestic violence by my elder sibling since childhood. He has beaten me and my mother always I think he has anger issues and has bossed around me countless number of time. But now he is better now. 2 years back a friend of mine encourage me to masturbate and I got addicted to it. And I have been depressed and suicidal since long time I also have been very close to killing my self once. But there have been period when I used to feel very high between these years that make me doubt if I have Bipolar Disorder. I also suffer from anxiety and panic attacks. And I think it's all due to addiction of masturbation. I can't really stop it. My longest streak without doing it was 6 days but then I started to feel anxious and panic attacks and then I relapsed. I am tired most of the time. Have serious insomnia. Find it hard to concentrate and remember routes. Need some serious help:(

Masturbation is a very healthy form of sexual outlet, do not feel guilty about it. Nearly 99% of men and more than 60% of women masturbate. It starts from adolescence and goes on in some people even till death. The pleasure (orgasm) from masturbation is said to be unique from sexual intercourse. In men, most of the liquid contains only water and some fructose and hormones. Hence it does not drain your energy. Many equate masturbation/ seminal fluid loss to lack of energy, impotency and so on. Many quacks, religious heads and pseudo healers also propagate the idea that masturbation is a disorder/ and wrongful behavior and instill fear on the mind of innocent men and women (we can see posters in train and bus stand, offering help for this behavior). Consult a psychiatrist, if you have excessive masturbation guilt or compulsive masturbation. Compulsive masturbation is when a person continues with frequent masturbation neglecting his/ her other work like education, job or social obligations. In fact masturbation.

Hi lybrate-user, you need to practice deep breathing. Deep breathing can be a great way to manage anxiety during or before social situations. Deep breathing can help reduce the physical symptoms of your anxiety, many of which are a result of breathing too quickly. Do breathing exercises everyday so it becomes second nature and comes naturally when you're in a stressful situation. Breathe through your abdomen, not your chest. To do this, lay on the floor or sit straight in a chair. Place a hand on your chest, the other on your abdomen. As you inhale, the hand on your abdomen should move while the one on your chest stays mostly at the same place. Inhale slowly and deeply through your nose. Hold for a count of 7. Exhale slowly through your mouth for a count of 8. Gently contract your abdominal muscles to get all the air from the lungs. This is extremely important. Complete 5 deep breaths. Try 1 deep breath per 10 seconds. Apart from this, consult a psychologist and discuss your issues in detail to get help and rid of stress. All the best.

I'm 19 yr old nd I cant concentrate on studies. I always have pain in head. What should I do?

M. Phil Clinical Psychology
Psychologist, Hyderabad
Consult a general physical to rule out any medical cause. If you've already done that then you might want to inculcate the following: - 30 minutes of physical activity - you can also try breathing exercises for a few minutes every day. - create a structured plan for each day. It will help you feel less anxious about your study material. Make sure to not do too much initially.

My mother, age 49 is suffering from Systemic lupus erythromatosis for past 13 tears or so. Atleast our doctor has diagnosed that. She is better now for most of the time. But she is weak most of the time. Her bone strength seems to decrease. She also easily get angry. Have mood swings and I think she also suffers from anxiety. Is it the side effects of the disease or just because of medicines. Also can anybody suggest a diagnosis so that I can check if she really suffering from SLE. For just cross checking.

HELLO lybrate-user, Please note. Systemic lupus erythematosus, often abbreviated as SLE or lupus, is a systemic autoimmune disease (or autoimmune connective tissue disease) in which the body’s immune system mistakenly attacks healthy tissue. There are many kinds of lupus. The most common type is systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), which affects many internal organs in the body. SLE most often harms the heart, joints, skin, lungs, blood vessels, liver, kidneys, and nervous system. The course of the disease is unpredictable, with periods of illness (called flare-ups) alternating with remissions. Remidies. If you keep on signs and symptoms Try to: See your doctor regularly. Having regular checkups instead of only seeing your doctor when your symptoms worsen may help your doctor prevent flare-ups, and can be useful in addressing routine health concerns, such as stress, diet and exercise that can be helpful in preventing lupus complications. Get adequate rest. People with lupus often experience persistent fatigue that's different from normal tiredness and that isn't necessarily relieved by rest. For that reason, it can be hard to judge when you need to slow down. Get plenty of sleep at night and naps or breaks during the day as needed. Be sun smart. Because ultraviolet light can trigger a flare, wear protective clothing — such as a hat, long-sleeved shirt and long pants — and use sunscreens with a sun protection factor (SPF) of at least 55 every time you go outside. Get regular exercise. Exercise can help you recover from a flare, reduce your risk of heart attack, help fight depression and promote general well-being. Don't smoke. Smoking increases your risk of cardiovascular disease and can worsen the effects of lupus on your heart and blood vessels. Eat a healthy diet. A healthy diet emphasizes fruits, vegetables and whole grains. Sometimes you may have dietary restrictions, especially if you have high blood pressure, kidney damage or gastrointestinal problems. Otherwise, get 5 to 6 treatments of acupuncture it will be of great help.

Hi I am 29 years old woman, 4 years back I got married, initially we both were very happy with each others company, after 3 months I got conceived. Since then he started rejecting me. But i'm not able to understand the reason. He never allow me to touch his phone. He has lots of girl friends. Accidentally if I see his phone there will be a chat with his friends, he never talk to me with love and care. I am getting dipressed day by day. He loves his mother. My mom and his mom were childhood friends. I think he married me for the sake of his mother, but what right he has to disturb my life. He will never change but want to live happyly in all conditions.

Hi lybrate-user, You have anxiety which is causing lack of concentration as well it seems your mind is preoccupied with a lot of thought and ongoing stress and masturbation is a way of finding relief or escaping from it. You need to consult a psychologist and seek psychotherapy and counseling. Its the only method which is going to benefit you in short and long run. For now, practice Mindful Breathing The primary goal of mindful breathing is simply a calm, nonjudging awareness, allowing thoughts and feelings to come and go without getting caught up in them. Sit comfortably, with your eyes closed and your spine reasonably straight. Bring your attention to your breathing. Imagine that you have a balloon in your tummy. Every time you breathe in, the balloon inflates. Each time you breathe out, the balloon deflates. Notice the sensations in your abdomen as the balloon inflates and deflates. Your abdomen rising with the in-breath, and falling with the out-breath. Thoughts will come into your mind, and that’s okay, because that’s just what the human mind does. Simply notice those thoughts, then bring your attention back to your breathing. Likewise, you can notice sounds, physical feelings, and emotions, and again, just bring your attention back to your breathing. You don’t have to follow those thoughts or feelings, don’t judge yourself for having them, or analyse them in any way. It’s okay for the thoughts to be there. Just notice those thoughts, and let them drift on by, bringing your attention back to your breathing. Whenever you notice that your attention has drifted off and is becoming caught up in thoughts or feelings, simply note that the attention has drifted, and then gently bring the attention back to your breathing. It's okay and natural for thoughts to enter into your awareness, and for your attention to follow them. No matter how many times this happens, just keep bringing your attention back to your breathing. You can consult with me too for therapy. All the best.

First of all with an asthmatic condition, your friend is fooling around with a poison that uses and harms the respiratory system. He desperately needs to quit smoking. The erratic pattern, induced by his attempts to quit, is worthy endeavors but true success lies in his finding support either through therapy or through the support of a close friend. Let him not attempt to stop gradually because the success rate of such attempts is neither permanent nor reliable. He needs to stop abruptly and immediately. He should give it much publicity, to all and sundry, so that he is compelled to save face and keep up his word in his social circles, when temptations become too trying. He may indulge in satisfying his oral need (which will become heightened due to the quitting of the smoking) with hard candy, chewing gum, and other consumables. There are nicotine chewing gums, nicotine patches, and electronic cigarettes that may be used as substitutes to reduce the craving and thus to eventually give up the habit. Whenever the need it stimulated, he may resort to deep breathing to simulate the act of smoking with nothing to actually ingest though. He needs to find out and equip himself with the knowledge of tobacco and all the damage it causes as a strong deterrent to his continuing the habit. The knowledge is scary. The times he has higher cravings have to be identified and he has to do something to occupy himself and his oral need to stave off the impulse. He needs to get into an active exercise regimen and healthy lifestyle that will embarrass him to abuse his body again by such poisonous items.

I am 32 yrs old male married, am addicted to booze (drink). With out booze I am uncontrollable my self please suggest me.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

If you cannot manage without alcohol, then you are pretty badly addicted to the stuff. You must explore why you need to drink. Are you covering up some deep rooted pain? Are you avoiding something that you are ashamed of or do not want to look at? Is there a deep issue that you are unable to deal with? And so on. 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. Your children will also have to attend meetings to work out their issues because of the father?s habit. In fact, they are all suffering from the Adult Children Of Alcoholics Syndrome (ACOAs), which in effect means that they are genetically predisposed to alcoholism or can have cross addiction problems and they will have similar traits of the abusing alcoholic but in a milder form. There are special support groups for them all over the world. Should they touch or indulge in alcohol or any addictive substances or behaviors, they could also become full-fledged addicts themselves. They will need the family?s written consent before willing to take him in this manner. Make a serious plan with the wife and children and whoever else?s support you can get and act on it fast.
