Q-1: My elder sister wanted to marry to our cousin whom she liked very much. He was 3 years younger than my sister and doing MBA. She shared her feelings with him with the hope of being loved by him but he refused to accept her.  She felt to be rejected and worthless because he rejected her because of her age and less education. His parents tried to convince him to marry my but he did not agree. Since then, my sister could not well. She is so lethargic and does not take interest in daily activities.  She talks less and spends most of the time sitting alone. She frequently has headache, body pain and poor appetite. Doctors prescribed medicine for the complaints she reported to them. I scare that by taking medicine frequently, she would be addicted. Kindly suggest me how I could help my sister.   Maria- Sialkot

A: Dear Maria, You should consult psychologist for your sister. Psychotherapy will help her to feel good and accept the reality. Only medicine will never work out and general physician, in fact, is not an appropriate healer for the problem you sister is suffering from. Frequent use of medicine for body complaints will make her habituated of that. Beside this, you and other family members must be there to support her.  With the help of psychologist, she will realize herself what she should do. DFN
