I am 34 year old male married married for the last five years and having a kid of 3 years . My terms with my wife are getting worser resulting to verbal and sometimes severeverbal exchange thereby affecting the child. So I am staying aloof in another rented hostel to avoid my parents who are in support of my wife and I feel that staying aloof may help my child not to witness such drastic environment. Please suggest as of what can I do to over come this mental stress since staying away from my kid is a very tough job for me.

Hi lybrate-user, marital problem is something which most of the couple face these days. Do not worry, you love your child, then you have to sacrifice certain things for your child sake. I will suggest certain tips that you need to follow. First of all your problem is very simple to solve. First when verbal argument arises please leave that place and relax yourself outside say relative house, driving or a movie come back home after 2 or 3 hours. Do not take verbal comments seriously deep into you from your wife. Just let it go, let your wife scream, if it is more serious leave her alone go out and come after 2 to 3 hours. Secondly, as days go on buy what your wife likes, give her surprises, express your love through greeting, surprises and when you find her in a happy mood take her out say a restaurant and discuss and both of them come to an agreement to adjust and give up certain thing to make your life happy for both of you and to your child. I would say she would definitely adjust and accept your suggestions to lead an happy life. Do not tease or comment your wife. Try to praise her lot, even if it is wrong. Do not allow verbal argument turn into a quarrel, before that you leave your wife alone and make her understand that you love her also. She will also love you in turn. Best wishes msv.

The mood swings are of major concern and you will need to visit a doctor and a counselor to work on that. Whether your irregular periods is connected to the mood swings is quite likely because of the stress you may be undergoing. At your age, this observation is good and important as this is the final stage for resolutions and problems that need attention as they crop up more during this phase. The mood swings are likely to do with a problem of unresolved anger and while that sounds simple, it isn't. So with all seriousness cooperate with both therapies for the best results and be careful that you do not quit therapies just because you may be feeling fine: the doctor and the counselor​ should make that decision.

My husband always in aggressive mood always possessive and don't lyk my praises and always says to me that I have a depression problem. Please tell me what can I do.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
If your husband was a doctor, I would have said your need some treatment. But if he is trying to scare you and blame your behavior by throwing diagnoses around, it must not be allowed to work. If you are indeed doubtful, then you can meet with a counselor to know, if his accusations are true. But if he harasses you like this then it is possible that you could get depressed because of it. Now if you let him do that, then that will be an unfortunate neglect on your part. You must stand up for yourself and be counted. You should both go for marital counseling and sort out your differences and find out what is his insecurity. Are you making him insecure or is he suffering from this problem apart from you? if it is the former then you need to work on that. If it is the latter, then he has much to work on. If he is not willing to come for therapy, you go at least and learn how to cope and deal with this situation. Sometimes when he sees you working on your issues he may feel encouraged to come and then you will have the best situation for marital counseling. But do not be passive and take all this nonsense. This can lead to a grossly mismanaged relationship in the long run because you failed to take prompt action.

Dear, Tobacco is addictive. Cigarette also contains 4000+ carcinogenic chemicals other than nicotine. The best method is to leave it and continue with your will power. There are other methods like Nicotine Replacement therapy and pharmacotherapy combined. If you?re ready to stop smoking and willing to get the support you need, you can recover from nicotine addiction and abuse abuse?no matter how bad the addiction or how powerless you feel. The first step in treating nicotine 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 smoking. Therefore, you need to stick to the treatment plan and cooperate with your psychiatrist / psychologist. Take care.

General Physician,
You need to open up your mind with wife and discuss. If you cannot start a communication please do it in the presence of someone acceptable to both of you like a close relative or friend. If this is not possible you will have to see a marriage counsellor or psychologist and find out exactly where the problem is. You keep in touch with me.

Cognitive dysfunction can possibly be attributed to both: your illness, as well as the medications you are taking. It is however essential that you take the medication as prescribed by your psychiatrist. Do not modify, alter, stop or change any medications on your own. The best thing would be to approach your treating doctor with this problem so that they can make any changes (if required) in your prescription.

Clearly there is a genetic factor to consider. Both of you must seek the help of a counselor and if that person feels you need medication too, you will need to oblige. However, counseling must continue until the treatment is complete.Relying only on the chemical intervention is grossly insufficient. By just popping in pills how do you hope to develop skills and tools to manage life?! You can follow these simple rules too: Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber, nuts, avocado, exercise regularly, eat dark chocolate, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. I suggest you do the opposite of what this depression makes you feel like doing (actually, not doing): you will need to fight this condition. You must become active; stay upright during the daylight time; meet people; never sleep during the day, wake up by 6 am every day, play some active games, especially contact games, do physical exercises, talk to people and join some social clubs, attend Yoga classes etc. Watch sitcoms on TV or comedies and cheer yourself up. Go for excursions in groups, for outings, camps, conferences, and religious conventions. Get a pet dog and spend time training it, exercising it and relating to it. Expose yourself to some sunlight every day, at least 30 minutes but not in the scotching heat. Whatever happens, please incorporate these three important adaptations in your life: always be responsible, be respectful, and be functional. If you did these three, lots of things will go well in life. Please pray and have faith in God to alleviate your sufferings. Don’t wait for others to help. Use your own motivation, which might be at its lowest, but persevere and win this battle. Above all to be really happy, you need to live in love and for love: find someone to love and to love you back. A counselor is there only to facilitate you, all the hard word must come from you, and your cooperation with that person is very critical for your success. Be positive everyday and learn to be contended with what you have. Do some left brain exercises: it is the happy brain. Here are a few suggestions: shut your left nostril and breathe, move your eyes from right to left and vice versa for at least half a minute at a time, and do callisthenic exercises with some form of counting, regularly.

I am in a relationship with my girlfriend for the last 2 years. Both of us were in India till now. And now she would be going to Germany next month for PhD. Owing to the time difference between India and Germany we would be getting hardly 2 hours everyday, due to our busy schedule. These thoughts of separation has sent her in a depression and this is taking a toll on our relationship. Please suggest us what to do?

Dear , please understand she is not depressed. You should be able to distinguish between disappointment and depression. Disappointment also brings on symptoms identical to depression but they are short lived. She may not be mature enough to solve the problem fast. But it will be solved as time passes. You told that her depression takes the toll in your relationship. That may not be the case. She can always choose not to go to germany if she really loves you. She has to decide, whether career or you. Even if she chooses career and goes to germany, once there, her disappointment will be short lived. Being in conflict is the problem. I suggest you to advice your girl friend to consult me online. One or two counseling sessions should set her mind straight thinking. Take care.

What should I do to increase memory power. pls tell me doctor?

PhD (Psychology), MSc Psychology, MS
Psychologist,
Dear, memory and mind power consists of understanding, storage and recollection of information you learn. Understanding depends on concentration. The more creative you are on doing tasks or reading, the more you understand. Storage and recollection depends on your understanding and how well you review what you have learned. Repetition and review of material learned and other tasks provides easy recollection. You can improve your concentration and total brain power with the help of green leafy vegetables, exercise, creative activities, number puzzles like sudoku etc. Hard work is the key to learning and recollection. Take care.

Hello, there are few yoga poses which helps in calming your mind and relieves stress, but first learn these under a qualified yoga-teacher as many poses are prohibited in certain diseases or medical conditions! exercises: practice shavasana or corpse pose as it looks like a dead body. If practiced correctly and with full efforts, can relax every body part, relaxing not only the body but also the mind: spread the legs one to two feet apart, the toes are turned outwards, the heels facing each other, a comfortable distance apart. Bring the arms a little away from the body, palms turned upward. Relax the neck and allow it to turn to the side if it is more comfortable. Close the eyes and focus the attention on the body, breathing normally. Begin focusing each body part and relaxing it, then moving on. Keep the mind focused on relaxation, the breath should be normal. Relax the whole body. Anuloma involves inhaling through both nostrils together and exhaling each breath alternately between the left and right nostrils. The thumb of the right hand is used to manipulate the right nostril, while the pinky and ring finger are used to control the left nostril. There are many other poses of yoga like balasan, setu bandha sarvangasan, uttanasan, garudasan, savasana, triconasana, viprita karani, marjaryasana, dhyana, bhujangasana, anulom-vilum, pranayam, etc.

This is not a physical medical problem. I wanted to speak to a doctor about my social anxiety, and what I can do do gain control over this. Since I was a small child I have been very shy. Now that I am an adult I am less shy, but still have problems speaking to others. Not just strangers. I also have a problem speaking with my own family. People that I do not feel 100% comfortable around. I enjoy being around large groups of people, but I have a problem speaking to them. It seems like when I speak I am spending more time on my facial expressions, or what I said the last time I spoke, or how the person I am speaking to thinks of me, or what I will say the next time I say something to this person. By thinking about everything other than what I'm actually saying I tend to say words incorrectly. I'll have to repeat the word to correct it. Then, I'll be so humiliated that I just said a word incorrectly and how embarrassed that I am that I continue to say the wrong words or continue to say the words improperly. I also find it very difficult to look folks in the eyes for too long. Especially during silent moments. I am a very affectionate person, and I find that I need to be loved on physically and told that I am loved, but I find it difficult to get too close to people I'm not very comfortable with. I also find it difficult to keep friendships. It's not because my friends don't want to be my friends anymore. It's because when I feel like I'm getting to close to a friend, or that I'm opening up too much I shy away. I won't answer the phone for that person anymore or I'll make an excuse to not meet up with them and keep our plans together. My relationships with my husband, my children and my sister and mother are all very normal relationships. I'm also very close to my father, he was my favorite parent when I was growing up and I even work with him everyday but I find that I feel very nervous around him all the time. More so because I'm afraid that he will see how awkward and strange I am. I have always seeker my father's approval all my life and being in front of him everyday while working is almost too much for me to handle. It's somewhat overwhelming. I'm constantly afraid I will mess up or do something wrong and my fear is that he will see it. I almost feel as if I love him so much and look up to him so much that I prefer to not be around him everyday due to the higher risk of letting him see how strange I am. Or maybe that he will find out that I'm not as smart as he thinks I am. I know these feelings are not normal. I can't just do something mindlessly. I'm constantly mapping out in my head my every move, but that almost always causes me to mess up what I'm doing because it's impossible to map out my every move and word but still focus on what I'm doing and saying. I wish that I could just relax. I think my fear is humiliation, or showing people that I'm not terribly smart, but part of me feels like I am very smart. What is wrong with me?

hi... I think the root cause of your problem is only one that you are not loving yourself. And when you are not loving yourself your self confidence is going lower and lower. So just start loving yourself and everything will fall into their place. Now the question is how to love ourselves?.. here is my answer for it : start praising yourself. Daily say loudly one positive sentence about yourself to yourself in front of a mirror. Indulge yourself in the hobby which you love. Don't seek others approval for anything you do. Learn to take responsibility of your act. I would suggest you to take part in some team activity. Remember it is you only who can help you not anybody else. if you want further guidance I would be glad to guide you . All the best. regards Sunita

What is grasping power? Somebody's telling me there's no grasping power to u. Small of thinks I can get a tension so which doctors I want to consult it's please suggest a good psychologist.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
It makes sense that the word grasp means understanding a concept since you are "getting a hold of an idea" just as you would grasp something tangible to hold. Grasp is good for when you're talking about comprehending the scale of something, or the full picture of a multi-faceted problem or idea. You can consult me if yu wnat .Grasping power depends upon practice and concentration. If you keep a focused mind only on one thing that you would like to achieve then your grasping power pertaining to that area will definitely increase. Try noting down the things you are unable to grasp easily and recall them every night you sleep and check till how many days you are able to recall them with ease. After some time you get habituated to this but this time you don't need to note them down but you'll be grasping them instantly. The other way is make sure you try to memorize things you need using key words. Once that key word strikes your mind, you'll be able to get the entire scenario. Thinking speed can be improved by brain storming a variety of ideas pertaining to that area which you are trying to think. So once you try to inculcate these habits you can improve them gradually. Grasping and thinking speed development needs a rigorous practice.

To gain weight you should eat more calories than you burn. Plus not only you have to eat calorie dense food but you have to keep in mind that what you are eating is healthy too. In the process of weight gain you do not want to put weight in an uneven manner and look unhealthy rather than looking bright and healthy. 1. Start with changing your lifestly. Start working out if you are not active. The biggest myth that prevails now a days is that thin people do not need to work out. This is wrong. When you challenge your body, it is forced to grow. But this growth can only be possible if you are eating enough food to let the body absorb and grow in size and muscles. 2. Eat Healthy – Stop drinking and smoking too much if you are indulged in it. Limit your intake of junk food, pepsi, sugary stuff etc. Do not at all starve yourself. Make it a habit to eat something healthy every 3 hours. This means you have to eat 6 small meals in a day. Your Daily food intake should ideally consist of – a. Have plenty of nuts, dry fuits and seeds. Almonds, walnuts, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, figs, dates and raisins. They are full of healthy fats needed by a human body. b. Good amount of fruits and vegetables – Bananas, apples, pomegranate, green leafy vegetables. Fruits and vegetables helps in absorption of food in the body and together, completes your daily nutrition need. c. If you are a non- vegetarian - Eat eggs, chicken etc. d. Eat whole grains – Try to have multi grains spread throughout the day. Wheat, brown rice, oats, bajra, daliya etc should be taken in multiple meals in a day. e. Eat Sprouts – Chana and moong which are full of protein and nutrients. f. You can supplement your diet with good quality multi-vitamin capsules. If you are lacking in protein, you can buy a high quality whey protein and have it with banana shake twice a day. g. You can take natural food items like wheat grass which is full of essential nutrients which helps in weight gain. Try to be patient while you are on the process of weight gain. Results take time to show. Just follow the regimen of weight gain religiously and you will soon start seeing the results.
