The best way to deal with the situation is to keep taking a nice and deep breath which will help you stay calm and in control. Don't let their anxiety or excitement disturb you. In you look inside, you know how you did in the exam.Now it is time to simply accept it, and accordingly make a next plan. also, doing activities like listening to music you like, and watching a commedy movie or a tv show to keep yourself calm will also help. if it is not too hot at your place then going for a long walk in the evening might also help release the pressure and calm your nerve. If you wathc hindi movies then, remember Aamirkhan from three idiots and keep telling yourself "all is well". spend some time with friends, as they are in exact same situation like you, you all togather will be able to help eachother relax and be prepared for tomorrow. If you need any help once the results are out, feel free to contact me. wishing you best result tomorrow and very bright future ahead,

Hi. I'm 24 yr old woman. I was in relationship with a guy for abt 9 months. We both loved each other. But now only I came to know he is already married. So I had ended up the relationship with him. But I feel very bad abt myself. I'm not a type of person to love a married man. Really I don't know tat he is already married. If I had known before itself means I would not have spoken with him. Daily i'm crying. I feel like I want to commit suicide. Becoz I loved a married man. I always having the feeling of committing suicide. How to get rid of this thought. Please help me.

Sounds like you are very angry with yourself. It is okay to be angry with yourself for having being fooled around by this guy. Then you need to express it to someone, like you have done to me and the matter is over. I really admire you for breaking up with this guy after knowing that he is married. It is very difficult to be in love and then discover that you were deceived all this time. But you have done really well to be able to quit the relationship on the discovery. Now pick up the pieces and make good of your life. It was that guy who deceived you and he should feel all the guilt, not you. So be proud that you did the right thing and that you did not deceive anyone yourself. Do not be harsh on yourself and your life is very precious. No man is more important than your life. Get rid of all reminders of this fellow and do not frequent places, situations, or company that you used to keep with this guy for some time. Talk to someone else also if you need to, and go and do some vigorous exercise every day, and be proud yourself. I am.

Try to talk to your friend and ask him to express what is making him angry or what is irritating him. You will have to be more tactful and patient with him. People get angry when certain expectations are not met. There is anxiety when they are underconfident. So try to find out what is happening to him, If he does not open up to you, may be you can take him to a Counsellor. He needs counselling to cope up with his anxiety disorder.

I am having regular smoking and drinks habits. What is the effect on my body. How should I skip all the habits. Any treatment now to confirm the status of body now in 2015. Please advice if you can.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
One of the immediate concerns will be cirrhosis of the liver. The combination of smoking and drinking increases the risk many times. There is also the enlarged heart and weak heart beat after long duration of alcohol consumption. There is the danger of cancer of so many organs that it is too long to list all the problems. Here are just a few: Blocked arteries, loss of stamina, lung damage, skin damage, kidney, hepatitis B, eyes, teeth and gums, hair, etc. You can go for a complete medical and psychiatric evaluation. The problem is that even if you know the dangers you will not quit unless something dramatic happens.There is only one reason, and that is, that you have not reached your ?Rock bottom? so that you will be stopped right in your tracks! Before that happens you must, on a war footing, exercise restraint and stop the use of all these substances. Since you have probably tried and found it extremely difficult I suggest you do one of the following: It sounds like you are in an advanced stage of alcoholism and tobacco use and need admission to a rehabilitation center to ideally help deal with this problem. There are no guarantees about stopping one?s addiction. But that does not mean we should not keep at it, over and over again until we succeed. Now it is difficult to give up all by yourself because you have become addicted to alcohol and tobacco and there is so much to do. Under such circumstances it is best that you admit yourself into a de-addiction center and stay there for at least 6 months and after that you can attend counseling with a professional. There are medicines that help with the drinking just to ease the initial craving and to act as an antabuse i.e. you will have a serious reaction, if you consume even a small quantity of alcohol or alcohol based substances. It has to be carefully monitored to see that you do not only consume the medication but you are also avoiding alcohol. Ultimately, it is your will power and the support that you receive from the medical fraternity and your close and dear ones. You must also learn to substitute and deal with the oral need, a rigid value system, the script issue, and of course take a look at all the genetic factors to plan a strategy not to get into what is called ?cross addictions? i.e. another form of addiction that may appear alright but is in fact as bad as the primary addiction. The center or hospital and the counselor will advise and guide you on several measures and precautions you will need to take to stay with your resolve. Even after the rehabilitation you must attend AA meetings and continue this support for a long time. The family will also need to attend some sessions and go for Al-anon meetings for their co-dependency issues. You cannot be treated in isolation because the family has gotten used to your drinking in particular and have made some unhealthy adaptations to somehow cope. Your children will also have to attend meetings to work out their issues because of the father?s habit. In fact, they are all suffering from the Adult Children Of Alcoholics Syndrome (ACOAs), which in effect means that they are genetically predisposed to alcoholism or can have cross addiction problems, and that they will have similar traits of the abusing alcoholic but in a milder form. There are special support groups for them all over the world. Should they touch or indulge in alcohol or any addictive substances or behaviors, they could also become full-fledged addicts themselves. Make a serious plan with whoever else?s support you can get and act on it fast. If you are not cooperative, there are some centers that will come and pick you up, after you are completely drunk, and admit you by force. This will however, require the wife and family?s consent. Do not delay for any reason and stop fooling around with half decisions. This must be your last and final attempt and make it a successful one.

I am 20 years old I have an a speech problem (hesitation) from starting so how can I clear my problem please give me a best advise.

PDDM, MHA, MBBS
General Physician, Nashik
It can be made lesser only and only by speech therapy. So you should take the help of a speech therapist. Also, i'd suggest you to visit a psychologist as confidence plays a great role in dealing with this problem. I'd suggest you to speak very slowly, word by word. People may make fun of this but believe me, slowly you'll get better at it.

Well Mr. lybrate-user the symptoms you are describing maybe due to social Anxiety/social phobia you may be experiencing. These symptoms are usually present in social situations, leading a desire for escape or avoid those situations. Usually shyness, behavioral inhibition are predisposing factors. Relaxing techniques, skills training, can reduce your symptoms. If your problems are persisting kindly consult a psychiatrist.

Dear lybrate-user. Welcome to lybrate. I can understand. Loosing someone near and dear is called grief and depression related to grief is pretty normal. But this sort of depression does not stay for long. This depression gets cleared within a span of some weeks. The best option for you is to undergo counseling and depression related therapy. Take care.

No. Any problem if it goes without treatment will never go off on own. E. G. If you have high fever and keep hoping it will go on its own. It will not. Any illness should not be ignored but treated. You are very young and deep depression you talk of - is curable fast - at your age with right diagnosis and treatment. First get psychological testing from a qualified and trained psychologist- a specialist for diagnosis of mental illness and providing counselling and psychotherapy- treatment without medicines. Based on report get recommended treatment from psychologist - if your depression like symptoms have psychological basis or take medicines from psychiatrist if it is an illness to be treated.

By going into depression will not solve your problem, but you will have to find a solution of your present condition on your own and nobody will help you or guide you, you will have to use your own brain to come out of this depression and my homoeopathic medicines will help you in this direction but I want you only to take help of these medicines for few days and once normal, leave these medicines as I do not want lybrate-userto be medicine dependent. Most of the successful people in this world have made their own way in their own terms and conditions but you simply by saying depression seems that you are scared of this world. Do not be scared and come out of your own created web and be a man. You can do what others can do, you just need motivation and nothing else. Work hard on your goals, only then it will be yours. No doubt that you are going through tough time presently but you will have to come out of it positively ------------- one day you will surely thank me for these suggestions homoeopathic medicine alpha ts (wilmar schwabe india) drink 20 drops in 20 ml fresh water 3 times daily for 15 days.

My father was having weight problem. His weight was 113. So we consulted an ayurvedic doctor. He gave some medicines and advised to follow a diet. Now his weight is 92. My father is following this from last 5 months. But from last 3 months he is suffering from different disorder. After few days, twice in a week, he feels a lot of weakness, cold and most importantly depression. He was a very optimistic person but during this attack he totally lost his emotional control. He has never been through such disorder before. Firstly the doctor told that this might be due to vitamin b13 deficiency. But blood reports are normal. Now even the doctor is not able to get the exact cause. Please help us through this. Do this need a psychiatric treatment? Is this due to allergy of the medicines that the ayurvedic doctor gave?

I do not think that his condition is because of some allergy to the medication. He might need some psychological intervention if he gets depressed or if he is losing emotional control totally. If you notice this again, please consult a counsellor who will help you. But more importantly, your father needs lot of motivation. It must be quite tough for him. It is possible that his self esteem has gone down or in those few days he loses patience. It will be very helpful if you make a chart where you mark his weight loss in bright colours and appreciate even the smallest weight loss noticed. Display the chart in his room. Reward him (not food) when he achieves his targets. Ask him to make a plan about what all activities he would like to do when he loses weight. See to it that he has some regular exercise. He needs to feel important so give him responsibilities which he can handle and which he would be interested in. At this stage in life, he has nothing much to look forward to so spend time with daily and talk to him. Talk to him about his past, your future and and the present happenings in life, talk about his friends, his previous achievements etc. Ask his grandchildren to spend time with him. Make him feel worthy of living. All the best.

I am 23 years old male. I trying to stop smocking. How can I stop that bad habit. And is der any tablets for stop smoking in market. Of der pls tell me. If I stop suddenly what happens.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You need to meet with a doctor to get a prescription for medicines to aid in smoking cessation. You have to quit cold turkey because the body and mind will torture you endlessly while attempting a reduction in smoking. The tobacco tar in cigarette smoke lines your lung with huge patches that make that portion dysfunctional. Your oxygen carrying capacity is jeopardized, and breathing is impinged on. But don’t be discouraged because it is not too late even now to reverse all the ill-effects of smoking. I don’t know what other organs could be damaged but do go for a thorough medical check-up to assess the effects of your abuse. Regarding improving your lungs, do a lot of aerobic exercise breathing through your nostrils only. Then there are a lot of deep breathing exercises in Yoga which you can learn too. Deep breathing cleanses your system and lungs and restores it to good health. Deep breathing uses the 80% of the lungs which are not normally used in normal breathing and even when exerting yourself. The greatest effect is in the lungs because this substance is processed through the respiratory system directly through the lung surface. When quitting, you must take one day at a time; though you must give up all smoking at once, and promptly. If you look too far ahead you will get discouraged and will give up. If you sit and count the number of days you have given up, that will also focus too much on achievement. You must focus on the here and now, on that day to be precise. After all quitting is not that easy due to many factors. So even if you fail one day, you must try and try again. Very few people succeed in their first attempt. Your persistence will eventually pay off. The urge to discontinue is hampered by many factors but the worst of them is the conditioning. In fact, these conditions can exist all through the day, unlike other addictions. But your desire to want to stop is the most important factor. It is important to find out about the ill-effects of smoking to have a reason that alarms you about continuing the habit. The information is really scary but true and you must remind yourself about this every day. The nicotine in tobacco smoke stimulates the heartbeat to raise the blood pressure in no time at all. So you must avoid it like the plague: it is just very bad medicine for you. In fact, it is highly toxic too. You will need to stop smoking or consuming any tobacco related items with immediate effect. You should start vigorous exercises, gradually increasing it over a period of time. Do deep breathing exercises every time you feel like smoking (try Yoga), and replace the oral urge with some healthy food substitute to satiate the need. You may also take hard candy or chew gum. If the urge is too strong, then use nicotine gums and nicotine patches, for a little while until the smoking drive reduces, substantially. You may also join Smokers Anonymous in your city where the support is really extraordinary for like-minded people who are also in the same situation. Keep yourself occupied or engaged with interesting activities during the times when it is most tempting. Keep the company of non-smokers for some time i. E. At least for the first 21 days. Above all announce it to everyone that you have quit smoking. Here’s a piece of very good advice: even if you accidentally/willfully take a cigarette, it is not the end of the world – you can start the cessation all over again. You must persevere with the best support until you defeat this addiction. Counseling is very useful in the initial stages and when temptations are at their highest. You could also join twitter2quit program and enjoy its success to give up smoking.

Hi never stop the drugs prescribed by psychiatrist even if you do not have problems. You have to take for a long time (about 5 years) because there is a chance of relapse. For a hard swelling on your face consult. A general physician.

Congratulation to your new life. Your bed habits can damage your sexual fuction, respiratory functions, brain functions, cardiovascular functions. But it accurs after period of long time (7 to 10 year) so, you are fully heathy and if any damage accurs to your body it will automatically become healthy after stoping it.
