Depression is a serious mental illness causing significant personal distress and socio-occupational dysfunction. Person suffering from depression experience sadness of mood, low self esteem, poor self confidence, bleak view of future, lack of energy, reduced pleasure in surroundings, altered sleep and appetite. They usually feel themselves helpless and hopeless. Many a time they are unable to take right decision. Few of them commit suicide and many of them suffer for many months with loss of job and earning. If you are having these symptoms, you must take a professional help. I advise you for psychiatric evaluation.

Weak or strong are relative terms. Find out your strength and work on them. Play sudoko or do logical reasoning and puzzles for brain nourishment. Eat healthy, stay fit, exercise and yoga. Stop seeking approval from others, those who laughed at you defined themselves not you.

Advice. Avoid sitting cross legged. Avoid squatting- quadriceps exercises- lie straight, make a towel role and put it under the knee, press the keen against the role, hold it for 20 secs. Repeat 20 times twice a day. This will help relieve some pain. Core strengthening exercise- straight leg raised with toes turned outward, repeat 10 times, twice a day. Hams stretching- lie straight, take the leg up, pull the feet towards yourself, with a elastic tube or normal belt. Repeat 10 times, twice a day. Sports taping- stretch the tape from both ends and apply on the affected area contrast fomentation (hot and cold). Ankle stretch calves get a custom made insole. Hams stretching. Sports taping. Hot fomentation.

Is there is any medicine for quitting smoking? please guide.

Yes there are medications for quitting smoking. But it all needs your strong determination regarding quitting smoking. Firstly there are nicotine lozenges (quitsure, niclonz 2mg/ 4 mg) which should be taken when you wish to smoke. You may contact your local psychiatrist for special medications like varenicline, bupropion etc.

Hi there ~ first things first. You need your blood sugars under control, and this is a priority. You need to get yourself to a diabetologist and consult them to check if you need changes in your medications. I strongly believe that you do. Next off, you need to control your blood pressure and hypertension along with uncontrolled diabetes is the cause of many medical emergencies like stroke, heart attack, etc, stress is the result of or the causative factor in many cases for the medical conditions that you are experiencing. I believe that you may need to consult with a psychiatrist after your medical problems are solved to see if you need any medications or therapeutic measures like relaxation techniques and yoga pranayama dhyana meditation and mindfulness to overcome stress. Hope this helps. Take care and have a lovely day!

First the reason behind your distaste towards sex needs to be explored, whether it is reduced desire, dryness, or painful feeling, vaginismus or cultural taboo, that u harbour. there are no hard and fast medicines to increase the desire. There are some medicines which will improve blood supply tot eh areas, so the pleasure can be felt better

" it not what you have lost but what you have left that counts" relax lybrate user. I could understand your stressful state of mind. A husband's indifference over his wife for a long period of time will certainly cause immense pain. But, you can change this state to the better if you have the strong will. Yes, drop your expectation of love from your husband. You will feel free at once. Accept the stressor that can not be changed. Your 2 children can distract you from all your worries. Focus your concentration on them. You can also distract yourself by doing some job at home that gives any income. Sitting and crying will not help in any way. Rebuild your relationship with your friends and relatives, expand your social network. Fortune favours only the bold. Whatever you have been doing to him, do it without any emotional content, expectation or dislike. He may turn good in course of time.

Hello Doctor, I am facing some psychological issues for a long time now and I am unable to overcome it, I need some professional advice. Tall women, I like them and feel more attracted towards them. But, I feel intimidated when they around me at work, in public transport or any event and also in family and friends. It doesn't matter if I know them or not my confidence and self esteem are always low around them. I couldn't think straight when they are around and couldn't able to make eye contact while having a conversation with them. It affects my communication skills a lot as well as my productivity. I have tried not to let these things affect me but there's no improvement. Also I tend to compare myself with them and then I self-pity my self and blame god, society, my family, ultimately feel distressed. I am short you must have assessed it by now. Sometimes I feel women don't find me attractive because I am short or anyone who is short in today's generation. While Growing up we all must have heard that "Women like tall men or they find tall men attractive and they would like to settle down with a tall man" Growing up I thought and treated these sayings as a cliché but now I think this cliche has become a fact for me. Whenever I have interacted with a girl, they always put me in their friend circle or see me as their brother. I don't hit on every girl I see, I am not a pervert. Yeah I have liked few girls, but they didn't feel the same about me when I told them about my feelings and I am totally cool with it, I have no hard feelings for them. But the aftermath is, this made me feel like that I am not good enough. SO COULD YOU PLEASE OFFER SOME ADVICE ON HOW I COULD LIVE EFFICIENTLY WITHOUT LETTING THESE THINGS AFFECT ME. THANK YOU.

Many couples make strange bedfellows. In other words, not all attractions are suitable according to appearances and yours will also likely be the same. There is a 'chemistry' as they say, or there is something that clicks when you find your true mate, to some extent. Tall, dark, ahndso0me men are a hard to come by, but the personality of an individual is dependent on five areas: physical, emotional, intellectual, social and spiritual fitness. How you carry yourself is more important than your height and shape and size. Then the most important feature to find in someone is their character. By now you must have assessed that these are things that you can develop. You need to develop good and admirable character judged by your value system. Your physical fitness is primed by regular exercise and diet. You may, in addition, attend a personality development course, good conversation course, public speaking course, and a self-grooming course to really project yourself as a suitable and desirable candidate. Above all, you must be happy with yourself first. You may be falsely seeking tall girls as a projection of your need to be tall. So develop your overall personality and you will see girls flocking to be your​ friend!

You need to hear some good music. If you can sing it would be much better. Try to do meditation at least 5 min before going to bed. Do morning walk regularly. Have a sound sleep of 8 hours daily. In the mean time do check your blood pressure and get back to me.

Is there any psychotherapy available for same sex attractions? I had attraction towards girls when i was in childhood . But now my sexual attraction happens only with same sex ( boys) .

In order to prevent tension headaches, you need to reduce your anxiety. The first thing you need to do is make sure that you understand your headaches are a result of anxiety. For those with severe anxiety, or that suffer from panic attacks, it's not uncommon to get a rush of anxiety when you suffer from a headache, or any kind of weird sensation in your head. For example, a quick, sharp, shooting pain in the head that happens in a moment and leaves quickly can easily be caused by anxiety, but has a tendency to trigger anxiety attacks in those with panic disorder. You need to take time to convince yourself of this thought, because one of the main issues with tension headaches is that the fear it's something worse leads to further stress and further tension. In addition, you need to follow it up with anxiety reduction strategies: •Make sure that you're exercising, eating healthy, and drinking plenty of water. Poor eating habits and inactivity genuinely lead to more anxiety, and this may easily be contributing to your anxiety and headaches. •Learn anxiety reduction strategies for before your anxiety is out of control. Tension headaches can be stopped if they're stopped when the headaches are mild. As soon as you start feeling stressed, start deep breathing or progressive muscle relaxation to gain more control over the amount of stress you experience. •Always try to get enough sleep. Sleep is one of life's main coping strategies, and a lack of sleep contributes to further stress, and further eye strain (both of which lead to more tension headaches. Finally, you'll need to figure out how your anxiety is affecting you and what steps can be taken to cure it completely. If you have any further query feel free to contact. Regards, Sukanya Biswas.
