You may be in serious trouble and need immediate help. I understand you're losing your friend in such a manner may be quite unbearable but your reaction to it doesn't augur well in terms of your coping. This may be because you already have a predisposition towards some disturbance and that might have gotten activated. Please meet a doctor immediately and a counselor. You must work with both the professionals to get the best results. Needless to say your cooperation is critical to your recovery. In the meantime please do the following sincerely because you could resolve the problem better with good cooperation: 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, spend time in nature or gardening, 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 scorching 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. Learn all about emotions and how to handle them and that will get you out of the depression rather easily and quickly. 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 every day and learn to be contented 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 calisthenic exercises with some form of counting, regularly. Whatever happens please cooperate with the therapy and do not discontinue until the condition is completely resolved.

The first and most important step is to accept yourself, as you are. That will be the foundation you will build your life on for the rest of your life. Learn to be thankful for what you have Accept the lessons from the past, but have no regrets. The past will never be back. So remember what you learnt and move on Stop worrying about others’ perception about you. For Others, you are just a small part of their lives… but your life is yours 100 percent Be Nice to yourself. If you are overcritical… life becomes a drag Ask everyone you care for, about what they think your strengths are Never ask for feedback on weaknesses. That is a domain you have to explore yourself Learn from the past, do not dwell there. Nothing can be achieved by brooding over the past Remember to communicate. There are never any unique problems. There is a merit to seeking ideas and feedback from people who care for you See that you have no scope for self doubt Be willing to act and accept the learnings from any action Take initiative…. As newer areas of your competency evolve, go ahead take risks The solution for your challenges is to divert the energy within, in a direction that is so inspiring that the anger is no more a priority for you.

Alprax is being for the depression and anxiety which is not the right choice, better consult a psychiatrist apart from your gastro and get proper medications for them, which will lead to dramatic control for of your anxiety and depression apart from the vomiting complaint. You will be requiring SSRI, SNRI or TCA group or medications which can be decided by the psychiatrist after proper evaluation only.

Hi, In case of no improvement, any of the following may be the reasons: 1. Not taking the medicine regularly 2. The diagnosis may require a relook 3. There may be associated medical conditions which may mask the response of medicines. Please note that there are around 60-70 % chances of improvement with any single antidepressant. In case of non improvement, if none of the above factors is applicable, change in treatment strategy may be required. This may mean change in antidepressant or Psychotherapy or Brain Stimulation methods. You should discuss this with your treating Psychiatrist. As he knows the patient best, he should be able to guide you much better. Best wishes.

How An Abusive Relationship Affect Your Health?

How An Abusive Relationship Affect Your Health?

The effects of an abusive relationship are sometimes not visible until it is too late. While most of you will think of the emotional torture that the person goes through, there is more than what meets the eye. Imagine a female who is in a relationship with a guy who is very strict with finances. She might even be reluctant to ask for money so that she can buy her medicines regularly. For someone with asthma or epilepsy, this could be a devastating situation.

  1. Physical effects: Depending on how aggressive the person gets physically, the injuries could range from bruises to cuts to broken bones. There are instances of head injuries, and most partners suffer through in silence. When regularly subjected to abuse, the person could end up with chronic headaches, back pain, and digestive issues. They may not eat well or eat very poorly, leading to multiple health issues. In some cases, patients even fear from going to sleep as they feel scared of being raped or murdered. Regular medications may not be taken, which is very common and leads to various complications. For instance, not taking regular medications for diabetes can cause various complications.
  2. Emotional: Given that an abusive relationship is often suppressed, there is severe depression and anxiety that is beneath the surface. The person could become suicidal or get into substance abuse. There is low self-esteem and self-confidence in a person who is in an abusive relationship. This is worsened when the person who is abusing is around. The affected person would not be able to make decisions, feels tired, and has no zest for life. Worse is abuser convinces the other person that the problem lies with them. With kids around, the children could be subjected to long-term emotional damage. They could end up being rebels, get into bad company, get into substance abuse, feel neglected socially - and become anti-social.
  3. Social: A person in an abusive relationship often gets into isolation and tries to stay away from family and in particular friends. 

It is never too late to get out of an abusive relationship - seek help from an expert!

I think that you need to consult your doctor if the mania symptoms are high and disturbing your functioning. Your medication is useful in the treatment of unipolar depression and anxiety, so a review is recommended. I also strongly advise you to get into talk therapy too.

Postnatal Depression - How Eating Right Can Help You?

Postnatal Depression - How Eating Right Can Help You?

Giving birth to a baby should make a mother ecstatic but in many cases, this can lead to post-natal depression. This can include crying spells, mood swings, insomnia and anxiety. Post-natal depression can begin a few days after delivery and can continue for a few weeks post-delivery. In some cases, this depression can become a long-lasting condition known as post-partum depression. Hence it is important to be able to manage these feelings.

Here are a few tips.

  1. Eat right: Giving your body the right nutrition can help improve your mental health and prevent mood swings. Keep away from processed foods and eat fresh wholesome meals. Include plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables in your diet.
  2. Get a massage: New mothers often find it hard to sleep and this can aggravate post-natal depression. A massage is a great way to soothe tired muscles and calm the mind. Massages can also help the body recover from the strain of childbirth. Using certain oils can further intensify the benefits of a massage.
  3. Meditate: Meditation can be very beneficial for post-natal depression. The best time to meditate is as soon as you wake up. A mere 5-10 minutes of meditation can help calm the mind and give you the strength to get through the day.
  4. Counselling: If you feel yourself spiralling downwards, you must ask for help. A counsellor can understand what you are going through and can give you the tools you need to fight against it. Counsellors can also help you set realistic goals for yourself and teach you ways to respond to situations. In some cases, family therapy for you and your spouse could also help.
  5. Join a support group: Understand that you are not alone. Post-natal depression is a common condition faced by many young mothers. Joining a new mothers group can help you come to terms with the change in your life and help you deal with situations in a better way.

I am a 52 year old male living with a micro-penis or very tiny penis. This condition has made my life miserable such that I have never engaged in a relationship (never had sex), cannot socialise and suffer from anxiety and depression. I've been to different doctors but have not succeeded in finding help. I take 800 mg of Tramadol and 400 mg of propranolol everyday to feel a bit calm and be able to sleep. I have attempted suicide 3 times but miraculously survived. What should I do?

My friend trust me even a big penis 11-12 inches have failed to satisfy a woman, on the other hand even a small one of 3-4 inches have made them fulfilled. Size is not at all a parameter to judge the level of satisfaction of a female. Trust yourself, and give it a try with a girl, engage more on oral sex and be confident you would be able to satisfy her during penetration also.
