Looking for help for prostate problem, back pain, anxiety, mild depressive feelings, etc.

Hi,

I am a 48 y.o. single man. I am experiencing lower back pain for past few years now. I also have problems while urination like weak flow, dripping, stopping and starting of urine, etc. but no pain or burning sensations.

It seems I also have some problem in my wind-pipe as sometimes it feels swollen making it difficult and little painful to swallow. When sometimes I get cold, which is very rarely for past 10-12 years, I feel infection, congestion, cough in the center of chest in the wind-pipe, with some discomfort while coughing.

Also for past couple of years or more, my right ear is clogged. I also feel slight pain in the right side of head. Sometimes I also feel pain in the right side of neck, right shoulder, right side of waist, right knee, right ankle, etc. As if there is some connection of some nerve throughout this entire right side of the body.

My face looks lack-luster with blackness below eyes.

I have been very nervous, anxious person and have had severe generalized social anxiety from childhood. I feel constriction, contraction and uneasy feelings in the upper part of the abdomen (solar plexus area?). I, kind of "feel" a sensation ( not pain ) in the spinal chord in the area that is just behind this area of abdomen. This sensation stronger when I sleep on my sides.

I also feel heaviness in head, do not feel all that fresh, not even after a full night's sleep.

More recently, I also am experiencing some constipation which I think might be related to the prostate enlargement problem. I don't know.

I have never done any job, never married and currently staying with my mother who has mental disorder.

I believe that my physical problems are mainly due to my psychological issues.

I have heard that homeopathy is very effective with issues originating from psychological imbalances. This makes me hopeful that it will help me regain my health.

Can anyone help?

Thank you and waiting for your response.

Hi,

Thank you for your response. I have tried to give the answers to my understanding. Hope they will help.

1. Age,sex,weight,country,occupation.

ANS.

Age : 48 years.

Sex : Male.

Weight : I haven't weighed in years, but it must be around 65 - 70 kg.

Country : India.

Occupation : Never done any job in the past. Have been freelancing online as a content writer for past 5 years or so on and off and also do a bit of web designing. However, it has been inconsistent with very marginal income. Staying with my mother who has Paranoid Schizophrenia and and am mostly dependent on my late father's pension money.

2. Main complaints and other associated troubles.

a)Where is the trouble; The exact locality of the complaint like hands,legs etc; duration of trouble.

ANS. As I have mentioned in the first post, currently the main problems that are concerning me are:

Urination problem with weak flow of urine, pressure on the bladder, dripping of urine, taking long time to urinate ( need to wait for a minute of two for the flow to start again, 2-3 times during urination ), stopping and flowing of the flow of urine, no burning or pain.

Mainly the pain is in the lower back region. I find it difficult to bend down due to it. Also find it a bit painful to sit down and then standing up again. Recently, I have been experiencing pain in the right knee mainly while bending it or sitting down or folding legs etc. No pain while walking or standing though.

Occasionally, there is slight pain in the right side of abdomen. It doesn't last much though. Just a fleeting sensation. It is mainly felt during masturbation. And in that case, on both sides of abdomen to some extent.

Sometimes there is slight pain in the right side of body including head, neck, shoulder, abdomen, waist, knee, ankle. This seems connected.

Also, more recently, there is some stiffness or pain in my joints in general. Maybe due to growing age...

Also, for past couple of years, my right ear is clogged. I have been mostly ignoring it except for putting some hydrogen peroxide in it once and an ear-wax disolving solution once.

Another issue is that there is some problem in the wind pipe as I often cough even though I don't have any cold. Also, when I eat something spicy, I start getting hick-ups. Sometimes, the wind-pipe seems to get swelling and there is some pain and difficulty in swallowing. This lasts for 2-3 days and slowly subsides and disappears on its own.

Also, whenever I get infection of cold, it somehow seems to be more affecting my wind-pipe. There is clogged feeling in the center of the chest and lungs and that part feels a bit painful while coughing with mucus. Sometimes even the infection seems to begin from that area itself.

As I said before, I feel a constricted or contracted kind of feeling in the upper part of the abdomen. Isn't that the solar plexus region? I have read that this area is related to feelings of fear, anxiety, etc. This is where my anxiety seems to originate from or affects the most. This is somehow connected to my chest and head as well as I feel contraction and stiff, heavy feelings in those areas too.

Also, I feel 'sensation' - not pain - in the region of the spinal chord exactly behind this upper part of abdomen. This 'sensation' is stronger when I lie on my sides rather than when I lie on my back.

b)What exactly do you feel, Sensation as pain, how pain feels or burn etc.

ANS. Well, the pain in the waist area is not very severe so I tend to accept and adjust with it. However it is a little annoying and frustrating to be having to deal with these pains and aches. Also, they do make me a bit anxious sometimes that they might be an indicaton of something more serious.

c)What are the factors that causes this trouble according to you.

ANS. My general outlook is that my psychological issues are behind most, if not all, of my physical issues. I have been quite an anxious, nervous person from my childhood and particularly over-sensitive to "other people's opinions, judgments or criticism about me".

These problems increased with growing age into a full-blown anxiety neurosis and social anxiety disorder and affected ( in fact, almost halted my progress in ) every area of my life from education, career, working, financial condition, relations, friendships, love, etc. etc. Until a few years back I was almost trapped in my house, in my room, just reading self-development and spiritual books using the computer and internet and had minimal or no contact with the outside world.

Also, I have been masturbating a lot during all this period ( past 25 years ) as it was my main and perhaps, for most of the time, only source of pleasure. I had a couple of 'on-and-off' relationships but ( at least to me ) they were mainly sexual and not so much emotional in nature. I believe that this excessive masturbation has caused some of my issues related to prostate, etc.

I also developed a habit of masturbating in front of a female member. This 'news' slowly spread among people and gave me a bad name in the society. I still face these issues where I am now.

In the past few years, I have slowly come a little out of my shell ( since I had to and also due to growing age and maturity perhaps ) since I had to live with my mother alone and look after things on my own which were mostly taken care of by my father or younger brother before.

d)Condition under which the complaint is reduced or you feel better like,cold or hot application,cold or hot weather,position as standing,walking,rest etc.

ANS. As I said above, the pain in the waist is felt while bending down or sitting down and then standing up, etc. Maybe while doing some other bodily movements that involve waist movement, it is felt only slightly. But at other times, it is not felt while walking, sitting, standing, etc.

The pain in the right ( more often ) and left side of abdomen is felt more after masturbation. Looks like masturbation has something to do with all these pains and aches.

Other than that, I am not particularly aware of any effects of heat or cold or whether conditions etc. on it.

e)Condition under which the complaint is increased like,cold or hot application,cold or hot weather,position as standing,walking,rest etc.

ANS. I think the above answer addresses this too.

f)Any other complaint any where in the body.

ANS. Mainly those mentioned above. However, I might mention one issue of mine which is of motion sickness. I feel dizzy and vomiting sensations when I travel by bus, car, etc. I don't have any motion sickness when I travel by train or auto though. Add this trouble with my anxiety and social anxiety and this makes me extremely reluctant to travel and coil back into my comfort zone.

In my adolescent days, I had sinus trouble when I used to catch cold. I had (migraine?) headache in which I had severe, throbbing pain only in the right side of my head. This pain would increase as the sun went higher and will slowly subside by evening.

When I was in my late teens, I suffered a sciatica injury to my right leg while exercising / playing and I didn't take proper treatment for that due to my SA. This resulted in wasting of some part of my calf muscle creating a permanent imbalance in my stature. The sol of my shoes or sandals in my right legs get worn out faster than the left leg and also there is blackness and thickness in the skin of the right foot on the outer side of the ankle due to rubbing of that part more on the shoes/sandals. I still occasionally feel some pain and muscle twitching in the right leg. Currently my right knee is hurting bad while bending or sitting down.

g)Onset time of troubles in detail, i.e which came first, after that what problem and so on.

ANS. The stiffness and discomfort in the upper part of the abdomen was felt from my younger age as one of the main symptoms of my anxiety. I also felt profuse sweating, dryness of mouth, rapid heartbeats, heaviness in breathing, etc. when I was in a social situation. I could hardly sleep the night before I had to go for something important and social like a family function, marriage, festivities, picnic, etc.

The 'sensation' in the spinal chord I can remember as something that developed later, maybe in my 30s. Since it is not a pain, I haven't paid much attention to it though.

As far as I can remember, a few years back ( more than 12 years ), when I masturbated, I felt a little pain in the right side of my abdomen. I didn't pay much attention to it. At that time the waist pain was not there at all. But since last 4-5 years at least, I remember having waist pain in growing amount and intensity.

h)Treatment method adopted and its result.

ANS. I have almost left all of this untreated. Mainly due to the very nature of my problem and also due to uncertainty about which treatment to adopt or will work or not.

I had visited a few psychiatrists, psychotherapists in the past for my social anxiety and related issues. They had prescribed medicines which I didn't take for more than a few days as they didn't felt 'natural' and made me feel drowsy, sleepy, etc. Also, I didn't continue with them perhaps for the same fear that took me to them - that it will pull me out of my comfort zone and I will have to face the very things that I have been avoiding all my life - so consciously or sub-consciously, I slid back into my more 'comfortable' social isolation.

3. History of diseases in family.

ANS. Main issue in our family has been my mother's mental problem which was diagnosed as "Paranoid Schizophrenia". It has affected us all but perhaps since I was mostly at home, I have had to deal with it a little more. Also, I have read that children having a parent with a serious mental illness like this have chances of developing mental health issues like anxiety, depression, obsessive compulsions, etc.

My younger brother ( 10 years younger ) who too had some social anxiety has been able to manage things better and is settled in life with job and is married. Maybe the intensity of his anxieties were lesser or he simply handled things better I don't know. When I was born, my mother was still un-diagnosed or treated. So maybe somehow that has anything to do with me having her fears, anxieties, etc. more than my brother who was born after she was under medical treatments already.

Other than this, my father was overall a socially well-liked person. However, he was quite a people-pleaser and would sometimes go way out of his way to help people, etc. Not that he didn't want to help, but I suspect that his generosity and helpfulness was mainly to get people's good favor.

He died of kidney failure 7 years ago. He was on dialysis for about a month before he died. I was alone there with him during this period. He had kidney stones before that. He drank alcohol to some extent but never so much to cause any problems to anyone. I sometimes fear that I might have a kidney disease like him ( he too had the problem of waist pain like me for years which he often dismissed as part of growing age ).

4. Personal History.

ANS. I have already mentioned that the main issue in my life has been that of anxiety, nervousness in general and social anxiety in particular. This has affected and caused most of the other problems in my life. I had these problems from my very childhood as long as I can remember.

As I remember, whenever there was a school event or trip I was nervous from the night before. I had difficulty sleeping. I was good in sports and liked playing but was afraid of taking part in competitions for having to compete in front of people and possible losing and being judged and criticized, etc. So I avoided taking part in any competitions including sports and any extra-curricular activities. Sometimes, when I somehow took part, I did well but was extremely nervous throughout. I was good at drawing and was admired by my schoolmates and drawing teacher for that which I felt good.

a)About childhood.

ANS. I was born in a village house in Belgaum, a small city in Maharashtra, India. However, after my birth there, my mom took me back to Mumbai by bus when I was just 1 month old. My childhood days were spent with my grand parents in a chawl in Mumbai.

We shifted to the suburbs when I was around 12 years of age. That was a more pleasant period of my life in many ways. Better home, cleaner surroundings, etc. However, my mother's problem started growing and soon my younger brother was born and my mother had to leave her job to look after us.

My social anxiety also grew with adolescence and the pressures of it including sexual feelings. Increasingly, I went on finding it difficult to mix with people and friends and I went on becoming a social recluse with only some close friends and neighbors initially and just my mother and brother later on.


b)Academic performance.

ANS. I was average. Not too dull not too smart. I used to study when the exams were very close. Then I used to study late at night due to the fear of failing and somehow managed to pass - particularly in maths. Interestingly though, in my 10th standard, I somehow got interested in the subject ( mainly because of one teacher who gave me tuition ) and practiced algebra right from the start of the year and got 90 out of 100 marks in that subject.

c)Any major incidents in life and the effect of it on life.

ANS. Following are some incidents that I think might have had some effect on me to contribute to my psychological problems.

I remember a cruel punishments in my KG school days when once I ( along with one another guy ) was made to stand naked in front of the whole class by a female teacher for some minor mischief.

Another indecent was when I was as big as in the 7th grade and still I was so afraid to ask permission of a strict teacher to allow me to go for a pee while in the examination hall. I kept on suppressing my urge and finally couldn't control and peed in my pants right in the class. Although no one noticed that except a few guys sitting around, I almost died of shame and embarrassment then and for many days after it while going to the school.

d)How you are satisfied with your sex life, friends, family members, company etc.

ANS. A lot of this has been mentioned in the above answers. About sex life, I do not have any except self-pleasuring. Mainly due to my social isolation. I have been masturbating regularly and even 4-5 times a day in the past. The frequency has gradually decreased over the years. Now, since I feel the above mentioned pains I masturbate even less - once or twice a week or lesser. Although I have had some sexual relationships with some females, I have never experienced intercourse yet. This is partly due to the problem of my tight foreskin.

I had friends in school and even college. However, with growing social anxiety I went on becoming isolated and avoided social contact. My friends went on becoming settled in life while I was just drifting around going nowhere. This caused even more inferiority in me and I went on avoiding them even more. I do sometimes talk to some of them on the phone once in a while but haven't met them in years.

Although I go out for daily works and meet and talk to people now, I don't have anyone whom I can call as a friend. There are only acquaintances with superficial communication.

About family, I have mentioned about my mother. I stay here with her in our village house. It has been a tough job staying with her. No day passes when we don't have arguments and fights. Her eccentric, suspicious, controlling behavior makes me irritated and I argue, quarrel, scream and even abuse her. Not something I am too happy with either.

However, staying all alone with her here has also helped me get out of my shell a little and go out and do things on my own for which I was dependent on my father or younger brother. In the past I even used to tell my brother to cut my hair to avoid going to the salon.

My brother has been living separately now for 12 years. I am having some problems with him about things. He hasn't visited us for 7-8 years now after my father death. I feel that he is staying aloof from us to avoid responsibility of our mother and even me. He sends some money when I ask for while I feel that he should send some money every month without me asking for it as his contribution towards the family with a mother having a serious mental illness.

I feel that I am taking all the burn of her problem while he is keeping aloof and sending money as if doing some favor. He is not even ready to talk to her on the phone once a month ( let alone every week ). He says that it makes him stressed and raises his blood pressure and that doctor has told him not to talk to anyone who makes him stressed. On this I asked him that in spite of being 10 years older I am living with that same mother 24/7 for past about 12 years and you can't even talk to her on the phone for a few minutes? On this he starts some arguments of my being jobless, and enjoying free stay and free food living on parents pension, etc.

He hasn't even talked to me on the phone for past 7-8 years. Our communication has been only through email and chat. I feel that he doesn't understand the value of my staying here with our mom on which he says that I am staying only for my selfish reasons and because I have no other choice.

This is true to quite some extent but at the same time one cannot deny the fact that my presence here has a tremendous value for my mother as well as benefits for my brother too. And so I feel that he should understand this 'value' of my staying here and should 'contribute' his share by sending money every month without me asking for it - particularly so since he and his wife both work and earn substantial income.

So this issues confuses me. I am not sure who is right. If my expectations are correct or he is more correct. Doesn't he have a moral obligation to send some money without me having to ask for it? His sending money as if doing some favor makes me annoyed.

5. Habits/Addiction.

a)Smoking, Alcohol,Sleeping pills, Laxative etc.

ANS. None of these. Drink 4-5 cups of tea a day.

b)Masturbation and frequency.

ANS. I have written about this above.

6. How is your Appetite and Thirst.

ANS. Both appetite and thirst seem normal to me. However, I think that I tend to eat more as a relief out of emotional stress than for hunger.

7. Likes and Dislikes.

Alcohol - Dislike.
Bread - Normal liking
Butter - Normal liking
Bitter - Dislike.
Salt - Just for taste.
Sweet - Like a lot.
Sour - not much liking.
Fats - Not much liking.
Milk - Not much.

Warm food-drink - Like in cold weather.
Cold food-drink - Like in hot weather.
Ice - Nothing special.
Ice cream - Like a lot.
Chocolates - Like.
Tea Coffee - Normal liking.

ANS.

b)Anything else about like and dislike of any activity with you or surrounding.

ANS. I always liked the time of evening around sunset even in my childhood. I find it kind of peaceful, mysterious, soothing.

8. Bowel movements.

a)Nature of stool, frequency, satisfactory or not.

ANS. More recently I have been experiencing some constipation. No regular bowel movements. Go to the bathroom once in two days or so. Stool is different depending upon what I have eaten, how much eaten, how many days been passed since last stool, etc. I guess. Sometimes solid, sometimes semi-solid. Not very satisfactory nowadays. Feels like more to be passed but not passing due to some obstruction ( enlarged prostate?).

b)Any discomforts associated with stool.

ANS. Nothing except the one stated above.

9. Urine.

a)Frequency, nature, volume.

ANS. More frequent while I masturbate or if I drink more water. Particularly, if I drink substantial water before doing to bed at night, I have to wake up a couple of times to pee.

Urine is dark when peeing after a long time or haven't drank much water for some time and light when peeing more frequently and when I have drank plenty of water.

b)Any discomfort before, during or after urination/odour

ANS. Bladders feel pressure before urination. Flow of urine is weak and stop and flow fashion. Bladders are not emptied and there is still the feeling that some urine is still there. So I have to wait for 1-2 minutes before the flow starts again. This happens 2-3 times while urinating thus taking a longer time 3-4 minutes to urinate completely.

No strong or striking odour to my knowledge.

10. For men.

a)Any difference in erection/want of erection/weak erection/Ejaculation early/late.

ANS. With age perhaps, the erection is not as strong and hard as before. Also the pleasure at orgasm is not so strong as before. Perhaps a little early ejaculation than before while I masturbate, but not too sure about this as this could be since I masturbate quite less these days.

b)Any other trouble in sex.

ANS. As above.

11. For Females.
a)Menses, Regular, Irregular,Early, Late.
ANS.
b)Duration of menses.
ANS.
c)Nature of flow, Scanty, Blood colour, Consistency, Odour, Staining, itching/ when and what makes it worse/better.
ANS.

12. Sleep.

a)The quality of sleep, the quietness or restlessness of sleep,
position of sleep, times of waking and reasons for waking,
need for cover over various parts of the body,
whether the window must be open or closed etc.
common dreams, peculiar sounds or gestures during sleep, etc.

ANS. Sleep as such is normal. However, there are some environmental or household issues that are not very conducive to sound sleeping. One of the most important issue is my mother's mental problem. She keeps talking to herself at any hour of the day. She sometimes do household works at odd times even at midnight. This disturbs my sleep. Also she cooks food very late at night. Sometimes I have to eat at 1-2 o'clock at night. This disrupts the eating and sleeping cycle.

Another problem sometimes is that we have around 6-7 cats in the house who sometimes fight at night or early in the morning disturbing sleep.

If I drink substantial water before going to bed, I have to go to the bathroom 2-3 times at night sometimes.

I like to cover my body and ears in particular while sleeping particularly in colder weather. Otherwise I also like to sleep without covering particularly so in hotter weather conditions. I don't like to cover my face or head though.

I generally like to keep the windows open but my mother doesn't allow me to do so and insists on keeping the windows tightly closed.

No particular dreams as such. However, I used to have this one type of dream sometimes ( rarely ) in the past in which I used to see tigers in and around our house and I was trying to escape from there or something like that. Don't remember the details but not a pleasant feeling dream obviously.

13. Sweat

a)How much, what parts, staining, Odour.

ANS. Social anxiety makes me sweat profusely when I am out of the house or in a social situation. I am drenched in sweat most of the times. Mostly all over the body including head, forehead, face, armpits, back, etc.

Used to stain clothes and strong odour in the past in my more younger times but nowadays doesn't seem so.

14. Weather

a)Tolerance to heat and cold, dryness, humidity, weather changes, sun,
foggy weather, wind drafts, closed rooms, etc.

ANS. Normal tolerance to heat and cold I guess.

Lips and heels crack in cold weather. Used to get cold and cough in colder and humid weather like the monsoon weather in the past when we stayed in Mumbai. But after coming to this village house, I hardly catch cold even in such weathers.

15. Mental Status

a)The quality of the patient's life in relationship to loved ones, family, friends and colleagues. Overall quality of energy available to function in daily life, and under various circumstances.

ANS. I think most of this has been covered above.

b)Any mental/emotional shocks occurring in the patient's life-grief, major financial losses separation from loved ones, death, identity crisis and other stress in life.

ANS. Nothing except the ones stated above.

c)Memory,ability to concentrate/comprehend.

ANS. Quite normal ability I guess.

d)Are you fearful of anything eg: Animals, people, being alone, darkness, death, disease, robbers, thunder, storm, high places.

ANS. Besides my social phobia I have some fear of thunder, serious diseases, high places. Although I like animals overall, I am not very comfortable around them particularly dogs, bulls, bufallows, etc. on the streets as I feel they can be unpredictable and might attack.

e)Are you anxious about anything: if yes, give details.

ANS. Mostly answered above.

f)Are you impatient.

ANS. I can be very patient at times and quite impatient at others. Depending upon the circumstances, strength of desire, etc. I guess.

g)Are you doubtful or suspicious.

ANS. Not in general. But I have been suspicious and jealous in love-relationships when I used to spy ( even dramatically ) on my partner. I feel even this stems from my insecurities about myself and about being able to find a opposite sex partner due to my SA.

Also I used to get jealous about my brother who was younger, better looking and generally seemed to be doing most of what I wanted to do but couldn't do due to my fears and anxieties.

h)Are you hurt easily (emotionally)how do you react. Does it cause hatred/revenge.

ANS. I can get hurt easily sometimes. Not always though. Again depends on who is doing it and other factors maybe. If someone taunts or talks bad to me I tend to react and talk back. This is not the most intelligent way but it happens like a knee-jerk reaction. I am slowly learning and understanding this and learning to not react so readily but instead hold myself back a little and keep my poise instead which feels better in the long run.

i)Does your pride get hurt easily.

ANS. Perhaps due to the not so satisfactory life I have lead, if someone or something taunts on that, I might get a bit upset and argue back trying to rationalizing how what I did was what I could do, etc. Other than that, I am not sure if I have anything going in my life that I should have great pride for.

Also, I believe that social anxiety has some egoistic nature involved as I am so much focused on and concerned about what others thing about ME, rather than any other thing in the interaction. The self-consciousness and fear of criticism or negative judgment by people, etc. So perhaps all that could be said to be partly related to 'hurting pride easily'.

j)Are you depressed, if so, reason/circumstances.

ANS. Overall, yes. Reasons are obvious. Not a severe state of depression though. But a mild lingering, ongoing state of low energy, less enthusiasm to do things, lack of strong motivation, etc.

Sometimes I feel that if I simply push myself more forcefully out of this situation, I might be better off than what I am now. But I keep postponing and keep staying in my comfort zone.

k)Do you like to share your problems.

ANS. Yes, for the most part I do.

l)Effect of consolation.

ANS. I might feel temporarily better but it doesn't offer a long term relief.

m)Do you ever become suicidal when? How.

ANS. No.

n)Memory- quality if poor, for what ( eg. Names, places, people, what you read).

ANS. Memory is sound.

o)Do you weep easily, effect of weeping, ie, does it make you worse or better.

ANS. Sometimes when I see an emotional scene in a movie, I do cry. But not on my own. I feel more anxious, fearful, stressed, irritated, frustrated, angery than weepy.

p)Are you easily irritated. What makes you angry, how do you express it.

ANS. Normally when things don't go the way I expected, I can get irritated and angry like any other person. But in my life, since many things are not particularly going well as I would like them to be, I get frustrated over the situation like having to stay here with my mother and get all the burn of her problems myself when my brother is staying conveniently aloof living a more normal and successful life. Or having to put up with mother's eccentric behavior and not being able to do anything to get myself out of the situation. Feeling stuck here. Feeling like stuck between the devil and the deep sea situation. I am also angry on myself for not doing enough efforts to come out of this dilemma.

q)Are you destructive.

ANS. When I am very frustrated and angry by something ( mostly by the above mentioned things ), I do get somewhat destructive in the sense that I kick or throw things in the house, etc. But its only for a while and I regain my control. Nothing too serious though.

This behaviour often happens when my mother behaves in weird, suspicious, controlling ways or doesn't listen to me or doesn't cooperate with me for doing even the important works. Otherwise I am normally more of a discussing things and finding a cooperative and mutually beneficial solution kind of a person.

I am quite argumentative though, at times. Since most of my time is spent with my mother, I tend to argue a lot with her - almost everyday on small to big things.

r)How good are you in making decisions.

ANS. I can be a little indecisive at times. However, sometimes I am fine with some decisions while sometimes I find it hard. Mainly due to my psychological fears and anxieties, I tend to get confused when it comes to take decisions that might threaten my current comfort zone or security. In that case, I often keep postponing things and my mind keeps over-thinking about things back and forth without making any real progress.

For example, even when thinking about where to find any help for these life problems I have been facing for so long, I have been confused for years. Thoughts like, whether to go to a homeopath, or some other forms of therapy, or whether I should force myself a bit to take action or wait for my inner conflicts to subside and heal so that some 'inspired' action might take place on its own, etc. etc. keep revolving inside my mind without deciding upon what to do and moving any further.

However, at other times, when the decisions are more general and not so serious, I can be reasonably fine with them.

s)Do you like company or like to remain alone.

ANS. Actually, I do like company of friends or people with whom I would feel at ease and relaxed. I am not so averse of such a company. However, due to my social anxiety, I generally feel self-conscious and nervous in people's company, which makes it difficult for me to be at ease or relaxed and share my feelings while I am with others. I am stressed and tense and uptight. This often robs me of the very fun of being with other people and enjoying social interactions.

However, I also like to be alone at times, enjoying my own things. At those times, I don't so much like anyone unnecessarily interfering or intruding my space.

t)How seriously are you affected by disorder and uncleanness in your surroundings.

ANS. I do like cleanliness and at least some order, that's for sure. Too unclean and disorganized surroundings do not feel all that comfortable or agreeable to me. However, I don't think I am too fanatic about it either. I can manage with less than perfect surroundings quite comfortably.

While living with my mother alone for past many years now, I am having to put up with all kinds of uncleanness and disorder. Since, she has schizophrenia, she is not very keen on these things most of the times as her mind is not very 'present' with the current surroundings. This does affect my mood and I get quite irritated and get into heated arguments with her.

u)How does failure appear to you?

ANS. Well, no one likes to fail. So I am also not too comfortable with failure I guess. It can make me feel low and disappointed. Perhaps, besides my social anxiety, fear of failure is one major reason why I keep safe in my comfort zone and avoid taking the risk of getting out and trying out things and, failing at them and then feeling bad.

v)Are there any matters that you deeply dislike?

ANS. Nothing to my awareness right now. Will let you know if something comes up to my mind.

w)What activities you deeply like? How does it affect your mood?

ANS. Currently, I don't feel too interested or passionate about anything really. I just spend the day doing what I have been doing for years. Most of the time is spent on the internet watching movies and videos.

If I can mention this as an activity I have been passionate about, then sexual fantasizing and masturbation has been one of the most exciting one for me for past many years. Whats more, I have been greatly turned on by masturbating in front of females. It has been a strong fetish or perversion in me since my adolescence. I have been facing ridicule, criticism and bad name for it and yet I have quite shamelessly continued doing so for past many many years. This is one area where I am not worried so much about making a bad impression on that female etc. I just wanted to have the thrill and excitement without bothering about anything. I have been watching porn for past many years now. I think that my excessive masturbation could be behind my prostate problem.

In my childhood days, I was interested in playing on the ground, going to places with natural surroundings ( I still do ), drawing, etc.

x)Are you affectionate? How does others sorrow affect you?

ANS. I think I am reasonably affectionate. Not stone-hearted. I love my cats and it hurts me when they suffer or die. I do like to be nice to people and help them. Not that I would go out of my way to do so, but I am not averse to helping others when they need it.

y)Any present fears in your life or future.

ANS. Presently the main concerns are about my health. Also, my mother is old ( 70 years ). So fear of her dying also sometimes comes in my mind and makes me sad and anxious. Also, about my future, since I am currently mainly dependent on my father's pension and don't have any substantial source of income of my own or any bank balance to rely upon - the thought of that - what will happen if my mother dies and the support of pension is gone? etc. So I think, more than feeling concerned about her death for any other reason like genuine concern about her or love for her, I am more fearful of that happening for my own selfish kinds of reasons I guess.

z)Any present life or future life desires.

ANS. Yes. I want to feel better. I want my body and mind to become healthy. I want to feel happy, healthy, enthusiastic, positive, peaceful and live life more positively. I want to feel less self-conscious, nervous, anxious and more self-confident around people. I want to mix with people comfortably and enjoy more normal social interactions with them. I want to earn a comfortable living by doing something I would enjoy doing. All in all, I want my life to become better, happier and healthier at all levels.

Thanks for the reply.

So are you not a homeopath? Isn't there any homeopathic remedy for my problems? I was a little disappointed that you have prescribed Ayurvedic medicine for me.

Anyway, should I take 2 tablets a day of Chandraprabha vati (1 after morning breakfast and 1 after the afternoon lunch)? Kindly clarify. Also, will it work for my probable prostate problem?
