What you are experiencing is very common after a profound loss of life. The feeling that your gm is still present around will last for a few days or weeks. You will get over this feeling. No there are no souls or ghosts. It shows that you loved her very much and are missing her.

How does my drinking affects me and my baby as I am pregnant?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist,
The World Health Organization (WHO) advises pregnant women to not drink alcohol at all. We don't know how much alcohol is safe for you to have while you're pregnant. That's why many experts advise you to cut out alcohol throughout pregnancy. Also the actual amount of alcohol you can have during pregnancy is probably different for every woman because everyone metabolizes alcohol differently. If you do decide to drink alcohol take no more than one (10ml) or two units of alcohol, once or twice a week. Alcohol is a toxin. When you drink alcohol, it rapidly reaches your baby across the placenta, via your bloodstream. If you drink too much alcohol during pregnancy it can permanently damage your developing baby's cells. This could affect how your baby's face, organs and brain grow. Heavy drinking can also damage your baby's nervous system. This can result in your baby having learning difficulties and problems with movement and coordination throughout his life. The term for all these problems is fetal alcohol spectrum disorders (FASD). It's called a spectrum because the problems can range from mild learning difficulties, through to birth defects. Full-blown fetal alcohol syndrome (FAS) is at the extreme end of the spectrum of disorders. Babies with FAS tend to have facial defects, to be born small and to carry on being small for their age. These children will have learning difficulties, poor coordination and behavioral problems for the rest of their lives. Heavy drinking can also cause problems with your pregnancy, such as miscarriage and premature birth. Too much alcohol can even increase the risk of your baby being stillborn. The effects are more in the first and third trimesters.

50 is an age where the body really starts slowing down. Your wife might be going through lot of hormonal changes. She might be noticing that her body is aging faster now. This might be difficult for her to accept. She needs to slow down as far as her household chores are concerned. People at home need to help her. Also talk to her and encourage her to share her feelings, her worries etc. Just listening to her will make her feel better. Encourage her to go for a general routine medical check up as well.

Hi, May be you are studying without much concentration or this could be of lack of quality sleep. You can improve concentration by- eating nutritious food, avoid rich or Junk food at dinner.

Better concentration and focus makes your daily life easier and productive. I have put down some pointers below that will help improve your concentration and memory. Get good nights rest 7-8 hours. Eat rights. Try and organise your day, this will help reduce anxiety and stress level during work. Don't try to do multitasking. Try to do most daunting task first thing in the morning. Don't try and look for perfection in everything you attempt. Take breaks from work or study at regular intervals this will help you unwind and concentrate better. Don't judge your work in comparison of others. Yoga, specially pranayaam will help. Attempt sudoko and crossword to improve your memory. Replace negative thoughts with productive thoughts. There is always room for improvement, channelise your energy to use your weakness as your strength. Jot down your thoughts to refer as a ready reckoner anything you do can we done better with a calm mind, have faith in yourself. Good luck & take care.

These off and on feeling bodyache and headeche may be due to viral infections. You can take tablet of paracetamol or calpol when you feel feverish or headeche. Do regular warm saline gargle have homemade freshly prepared lemon juice which is rich in c thereby increasing your body autoimmune system which prevent infection.

BHMS

Of course, take care of your diet and rest. Think of doing regular breathing exercises and meditation. Work with your thought and emotions which are unproductive and blocks you from being enthusiastic and energetic. Check if you a re properly aligned with your life plan. Because you are at your best when you are totally aligned with your life plan.

This is all stress and worries of life. May be issues of love/future/marriage, you are having insecurities and fear. Just relax. Ask yourself what bothers you? have a positive self-talk, and learn what are those things you don't like. You need to accept your self and move on. You need to take care of your lifestyle and learn to be happy. If you cant do it yourself, meet a life coach/ stress management super-specialist like me. Once you open your heart out, you will feel free and begin to fly in life.

I have a bad habit of chewing tobacco. And now I want to stop eating that. Can you say what steps should I take to stop chewing tobacco?

BASM, MD, MS (Counseling & Psychotherapy), MSc - Psychology, Certificate in Clinical psychology of children and Young People, Certificate in Psychological First Aid, Certificate in Positive Psychology
Psychologist, Palakkad
Dear lybrate-user, Welcome to Lybrate. Chewing tobacco 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. Take care.

No - Why Saying it is Healthier at Times?

MSc, PGDGC
Psychologist, Chennai
No - Why Saying it is Healthier at Times?

'No' appears to be a very simple and straightforward word. However, it can be shockingly hard to say. People most of the time agree to things that they really do not want. Since they would preferably feel overburdened and low rather than disappoint somebody, saying "no" feels easier to maintain connections with people.

The repercussions of this absence of disagreement is critical. By overcommitting ourselves, we are actually consuming the majority of our positive energy and using it somewhere where you might not want to. This takes away from our common character and quality. It leaves us tired and we meet each day like it is simply one more battle. We also give up our own requirements for space, stillness, relaxation and imagination and are bound to our state.

To stay away from this, we must know about our own necessities and priorities for both mental and physical well-being and joy. For this, one may have to know when saying "yes" will fulfill your requirement for rest, relaxation or self-awareness. When one does this, their unfounded dread of not being socially acceptable from saying "no" will go away gradually.

Here are three reasons why saying "no" can prove to be beneficial:

  1. You will have additional time: The extra time made by saying "no" will, at any rate, prevent that forced clock from ticking. It will make you feel like you are in control. This can truly lighten up your mood and lift your anxiety and bolster your health. Rather than saying yes to going out for lunch or a party that you feel obligated to go to, but might not want to, simply try to say no. You will automatically feel happier when you are sitting at home, relaxing rather than forcefully socialising.
  2. You will be less remorseful: At first, you may be reluctant to state "no" because of a paranoid fear of passing up a major opportunity or the fear of missing out. As a general rule, nonetheless, in case that you need to state "no," odds are you have much better explanations for you not being there. If you do go for it, you might regret it afterwards thinking that you could have done something better with your time rather than having completely wasted it.
  3. Your associates will respect you for it: No one wants that they should be taken for granted. However, in case that you continue saying "yes" to each demand or opportunity, that is precisely how individuals will come to see you. The more you say "yes," the more individuals will generally expect things of you. This could prompt to a drop in your status and position and loss of control over others.

Ask him to join singing class. He will be changed slowly. Thats good Do not expect things fast. Do something where he needs to speak or ask him to be a teacher in a coaching centre. Only 6 months. Then see the result.

Hi. My anxiety started from light headedness. Few weeks I became alright. I thought its general light headedness then I went to general physician. He did all blood tests in which my hemoglobin was low, my fbs was on borderline. Thyroid profile was lil bit high. Vit d was also low and cbc result was fine so he prescribed me medicines for all of that but suddenly I got panic attack and I that this lightheadedness is occurring due to cancer, infct my all tests were done as I hv mentioned above. Do not know y I got stuck on cancer word and I got panic attack. Although my treatment is going on for the same. Will I be fine? My question is only this all happened due to light headedness. So light headedness is part of anxiety? I mean is light headedness initial level of anxiety? Although I hv heard dat palpitations, fear etc happen first in anxiety. Thn y light headedness? please reply.

Hi lybrate-user, I can understand your feelings and your worries are not false. When some symptoms occur we tend to think negative outcomes first. So you thought of cancer. Here you have to educate yourself for various causes of lightheadedness. Analyse deeply when you felt it for the first time did you change your schedule suddenly? Or you were dehydrated? Or were you having any infection? Think and write down all the possible causes. You are now over thinking about it. So first pause and think of the causes of lightheadedness. You will be fine once you treat this. It may be due to your imbalanced thyroid levels or vit D level too. So don't worry. Also read about anxiety also. I would suggest you to get your vitamin B 12 check also. Have healthy diet and drink lots of water. For further consultation you may take appointment with me.

Dear lybrate-user, 16 is a very beautiful age when you grow up, out of a "child" phase into a "young man" phase. There are hormone changes that confuse and can lead to depression if not understood. Follow a healthy diet and get a lot of physical exercise. Sweating helps reduce the burden of growing up hormone imbalances and you will start to fell better in a day or two. Regards.

I am 24 years old and got married before 1 and half year about. Me and my husband were living apart after 10 days of our marriage because we both are working in different cities and we just met in 2-3 months or few days. But now we both shifted and started living together. I don't know the reason but instead of making love we both started fighting with each other. I am really not getting the reason the situation is getting worst and worst. This is my fault I got angry in each and every situation. We both love each other a lot. Please tell me the reason. Why this is happening with me. Why I am getting hyper so frequently.

It is normal to have differences in opinion" REAL MEANING OF MARRIAGE": From a spiritual perspective one should feel that their partner is something more than just my husband or my wife. A husband should feel towards his wife that this is the daughter of God - this is God’s deeply beloved daughter that has been entrusted in my care. How you treat her is how God will receive you. How you speak to her, how you act toward her, how you protect her are all important. Protection is said to be on three levels - physical, emotional and spiritual. To give that protection, to be forgiving to each other and to honor your spouse as God's property, God's gift, is how you will make spiritual progress. And a wife should feel that her partner is not just her husband but he is God’s beloved child entrusted in her care to protect, to be faithful to, and to encourage. If you see each other in this light, marriage really is yoga. Your relationship will be yoga in essence and you will make great spiritual progress.
