It is not a serious problem. We all have the same tendency to behave like your mother in varying degrees. Some people are obsessed to behave to a larger extent. My suggestions are 1. Let her express as fully as possible the bad situstions she likes to talk about, by encouraging her showing interest and asking questions related to the topic, and let her write the same on a paper, but do not forget to draw conclusions from the above processes and to ask what are the benefits of spending some quality time in it instead of spending in some other positive activities. 2. Make her learn and engage in new a skill or hobby that she most enjoys which distract her from such obsessional behaviours.

You should have conveyed that to your psychiatrist. Nothing wrong in being gay, but if you marry a girl that is injustice s you can not sexually or emotionally satisfy her needs. If you were bisexual too, you could have proceeded. So if you are still gay and have no physical attraction to a female, do not marry a lady and spoil her life.

4 Supporting Foods That Help When You Plan to QUIT SMOKING!

4 Supporting Foods That Help When You Plan to QUIT SMOKING!
4 Surprising foods that can help you quit smoking

Smoking can be one of the most difficult habits to break, requiring a great amount of willpower and commitment. If you’re a smoker who is looking to quit this habit, making some simple changes in your food habit can ease the quitting process.

So, how does food help in quitting smoking? While certain foods can help to reduce your nicotine dependence, there are other foods out there that have been found to make cigarettes taste terrible. Here are some of the options that you can try out if you’re planning to quit smoking:

1. Milk
Milk can give cigarettes a terrible taste. A study conducted by the Duke University shows that consuming a glass of milk right before smoking can make you think that the cancer stick has a bitter taste.
While it’s still not clear what component in milk brings about such an effect, it’s suspected that the bitter taste is a result of the chemical reaction between the lactose in milk and the tobacco smoke. So, have a glass of milk each time you want to smoke.

2. Nuts
Another helpful food alternative that will keep you from reaching for those cigarettes are nuts. This is because hunger can cause you to have a nicotine craving. You can reduce the urge to smoke by having nuts that are high in soluble fibre as they will slow down your digestion.
Full of nutrients, protein and energy, having them whenever you feel the need to light a cigarette can be highly effective in helping you to quit the bad habit.

3. Fruits rich in Vitamin C
Smoking brings about a fall in your body’s Vitamin C levels, which you can easily replenish by consuming fruits that are high on Vitamin C. You can try citrus fruits like oranges and lemons that are known to have high Vitamin C content, or you can even include pomegranates in your diet.
By including these fruits in your diet you can significantly cut down your need to smoke, as these fruits provide a thrust that is similar when you smoke a cigarette. Besides, they leave a similar bitter aftertaste in your mouth as when you smoke after drinking milk.

4. Vegetables
Besides milk and citrus fruits, certain vegetables are also known to give cigarettes a horrible taste. The vegetables that you need to include in your diet are celery, carrots, zucchini, cucumber and eggplant. They have been proven to be very effective in reducing nicotine craving. Take for instance carrots; they contain a compound known as carotenoids, which not only gives cigarettes a bitter taste, but can also make you less dependent on nicotine.
Another reason as to why you must have these vegetables is because they are a simple way of tricking your brain into thinking that they look like cigarettes (because of their stick shape) and can give you the illusion of an actual cigarette whenever you have them.
So, include these foods in your diet and see yourself saying goodbye to smoking much faster.

General Physician,
Mental health: What's normal, what's not

Understanding what's considered normal mental health can be tricky. See how feelings, thoughts and behaviors determine mental health and how to recognize if you or a loved one needs help.

What's the difference between mental health and mental illness? Sometimes the answer is clear, but often the distinction between mental health and mental illness isn't so obvious. For example, if you're afraid of giving a speech in public, does it mean you have a mental health condition or a run-of-the-mill case of nerves? Or, when does shyness become a case of social phobia?

Here's help understanding how mental health conditions are identified.

Why is it so tough to tell what's normal?

It's often difficult to distinguish normal mental health from mental illness because there's no easy test to show if something's wrong. Also, primary mental health conditions can be mimicked by physical disorders. Mental health conditions are judged not to be due to a physical disorder and are diagnosed and treated based on signs and symptoms, as well as on how much the condition affects your daily life. Signs and symptoms can affect your:

Behavior. Obsessive hand-washing or drinking too much alcohol might be signs of a mental health condition.
Feelings. Sometimes a mental health condition is characterized by a deep or ongoing sadness, euphoria or anger.
Thinking. Delusions ? fixed beliefs that are not changeable in light of conflicting evidence ? or thoughts of suicide might be symptoms of a mental health condition.
What is the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM)?

The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM) is a guide published by the American Psychiatric Association that explains the signs and symptoms of several hundred mental health conditions.

Mental health providers use the DSM to diagnose everything from anorexia to voyeurism and, if necessary, determine appropriate treatment. Health insurance companies also use the DSM to determine coverage and benefits and to reimburse mental health providers.
How do mental health providers diagnose mental health conditions?

To determine if you have a mental health condition, a mental health provider will work with you and your loved ones to assess:

Your symptoms. Your mental health provider will ask about your symptoms, when they began and how they've affected your life. How you perceive your thoughts and behaviors and how much your signs and symptoms affect your daily activities can help determine what's normal for you. For instance, you might realize that you aren't coping well or that you don't want to do the things you used to enjoy. You might feel sad, hopeless or discouraged. If your sadness has a specific cause, such as divorce, your feelings could be a normal, temporary reaction. However, if you have symptoms that are severe or don't go away, you could have depression. You might also need to have a physical exam to rule out any underlying health conditions.
Others' perceptions. Your perceptions alone might not give you an accurate picture of your behavior, thoughts or ability to function. Other people in your life can help you understand whether your behavior is normal or healthy. For example, if you have bipolar disorder, you might think your mood swings are just part of the normal ups and downs of life. Your thoughts and actions, however, might appear abnormal to others or cause problems at work, in relationships or in other areas of your life.
When is an evaluation or treatment needed?

Each mental health condition has its own set of signs and symptoms. In general, however, professional help may be warranted if you or a loved one experiences:

Marked change in personality, eating or sleeping patterns
Inability to cope with problems or daily activities
Strange or grandiose ideas
Excessive anxiety
Prolonged depression or apathy
Thinking or talking about suicide
Substance abuse
Extreme mood swings or excessive anger, hostility or violent behavior
Many people who have mental health conditions consider their signs and symptoms a normal part of life or avoid treatment out of shame or fear. If you're concerned about your mental health or a loved one's mental health, don't hesitate to seek advice.

Consult your family doctor, make an appointment with a counselor or psychologist, or encourage your loved one to seek help. With appropriate support, you can identify mental health conditions and explore treatment options, such as medications or counseling.

Regarding online consultation there are certain points which all should know and follow.
1) The description of the diseases should be complete in all respects, including any tests done and any medicines already taking. Just saying I have diabetes since 10 years and taking Metformin cannot help a discerning doctor a scientific advice.
2) Your place and name and mail id and phone number should be in the question. It is necessary at times to know where you stay to give a good advice. (For example if there the climate is warm or cold and many other factors)
3) It is necessary to keep in regular touch for some diseases like diabetes and hypertension. So make it a point to be in touch by asking private questions. And repeat the essential point of the previous question to give a continuing answer. All these are said with intention to give a scientifically correct answer and talk as if in a regular consultation about which I am very keen to.
4) For personalised attention and follow up ask privately and it is better to make online payment if you are asked to by the doctor. It involves his time and dedication to give you expert advice after studying your problem. Ask personally in case of doubts about any medical matter. Www.Lybrate.Com/drsajeev

If you are willing to accept me as your regular health care giver / doctor I can give you regular, prompt,
well studied and scientific answers for all your medical problems, which you ask me privately in this site. Sorry to say I will ask for a small payment for my efforts and intelligently studied answers. Regards. Www.Lybrate.Com/drsajeev
Ask privately. It is essential and useful to have a doctor answer your doubts online as it time spent in going to a clinic. Majority of diseases can be treated by online by consultation with an experienced doctor and does not need physical examination. You can use this site and ask me privately
