Dr. I am stammering too much. Does that stammering have treatment or operation. I really worried about it so much.

M.S. Counselling and Psychotherapy
Psychologist, Bangalore
You can consult a speech therapist for stammering. You need to observe, if you stammering is more in particular situations or do you stammer more while you are with some specific people. If it is so, then the stammering is more because of lack of confidence and because of fear of being judged by others. If the stammer was there even in the childhood, then may be you were scared of some people and there might have been performance anxiety and lack of self esteem. You may consult a counsellor who can help you in building up your self confidence. A systematic therapy will be of help. All the best.

Dear , You could be stressed. Stress is simply a reaction to a stimulus that disturbs our physical or mental equilibrium. In other words, it's an omnipresent part of life. A stressful event can trigger the ?fight-or-flight? response, causing hormones such as adrenaline and cortisol to surge through the body. A little bit of stress, known as ?acute stress,? can be exciting?it keeps us active and alert. But long-term, or ?chronic stress,? can have detrimental effects on health. You may not be able to control the stressors in your world, but you can alter your reaction to them. I need to know, what are the causes with which you are stressed? Once you know the reason, you will be able to adjust with it with some tips and tricks. Please let me know the details. Take care.

Hi Vishnu, Since you are a medical student yourself, you are aware of the Sleep and wake cycle of your body. The only way to get your normal cycle back is by starting to sleep at the normal time and try and wake up at the normal time according to your schedule. The most important part in this will be stick to your schedule. It will take atleast a week for your body to get used to this new cycle but it will happen.

I lost somebody close last year and since then feel very depressed and prefer keeping tomy self all the time. Please help me.

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Guwahati
I lost somebody close last year and since then feel very depressed and prefer keeping tomy self all the time. Please ...
Losing someone close is a very painful situation when one undergoes immense emotional suffering. Grief is a natural response to loss of someone or something important for you. It’s the emotional suffering one undergoes following the loss. But life has to go on so one should cope with these difficult emotions in a healthy way. Last one year must have been a difficult time for you. Try the following to cope with the loss: •Face your feelings: More you try to avoid or suppress your feelings & loss, the pain will get more intense & prolonged. Unresolved grief can also lead to complications such as depression, anxiety, substance abuse, and health problems. Accept the loss, acknowledge the pain & face it. When it comes to the mind, do not try to divert your mind, but try to rationalize the thought & explain yourself the reality. •Do not stay alone, but try to stay amongst friends, family members or anyone you are comfortable with & share your feelings. At the same time avoid people who demotivate you, spread negativity or make you feel more uncomfortable. •If you follow a religious tradition, then spend some time in spiritual activities like praying & meditating, as it provides solace. •Express your feelings in a creative way: You can write down your feelings, make an album depicting aspects of the life of your loved one, do something constructive like fulfilling some incomplete task of your close one, and do some good social work in his or her name or something that your close one would have liked. You can plant a tree in his or her name & take care of it. •Usually the grief comes back during events like death anniversaries, birthday, days which were significant to of the one gone. Memories & feelings get awakened at those moments. So mentally prepare yourself before such events & do something constructive on that day. •Maintain a schedule & try to follow it to keep yourself diverted & active. Go for a walk, exercise regularly, eat healthy, sleep adequately. •Avoid substance of abuse. Many a times it is seen people take support of abusive substances like alcohol, drugs, cannabis etc to run away from the pain of loss. It is an unhealthy way of coping with grief & does harm in the long run. Stay away from any substance of abuse. •Pursue your hobbies or those activities that provided you joy & satisfaction. •Take a break & plan a holiday to reduce the stress. •Join a support group consisting of people who had experienced similar loss. Sharing with someone who can understand your feeling really helps. Staying alone & isolated brings in more pain. Now-a-days there are such groups in social media including Facebook where they post messages reading which provides comfort, where one can post their feelings as well. But one should take proper precautions before posting personal information in those memorial pages. You can opt to create a closed group in Facebook than posting in a public page. •If the grief persists, get yourself evaluated by a Psychiatrist who will evaluate you & advice you counseling sessions or prescribe you medicines accordingly. •Allow time to heal. Time is the best healer, & with time the pain will lessen up but memories will remain intact. So have patience & continue with life in a positive way.

I am in a relationship with my bf from 5 months. But he already cleared that he can't marry me as his parents are very conservative and we both are of different castes. We both love each other. Is the relationship is worth keeping without commitment?

Masters in Clinical Psychology
Psychologist, Lucknow
If you both have understanding and are mature enough to carry on with the relationship without commitment it's fine. But many a times we get very emotionally attached with the person and when one fine day we have to leave the person it gets really diffuclt and then begins cycle of blame game guilty feelings sadness etc. So decide like an adult. My advise would be get over the relation if you had plans of marrying, if you are mature enough to detach you self from the person after years of togetherness then it's up to you. All the best.

Are You Suffering From Adjustment Disorder?

What Is Adjustment Disorder
Adjustment disorder is considered to be a group of conditions, which usually occur when a person experiences difficulty in coping with the stressful life events. These usually include relationship issues, job issues or the demise of a loved one. The incapacity to adjust to stressful events leads to psychological and sometimes physical symptoms.


Symptoms of Adjustment Disorder
The psychological and physical symptoms linked with adjustment disorder occur either during or instantly after a stressful event. The disorder only lasts for 6 months, but the symptoms might continue if the stressor has not been removed. The symptoms might vary from person to person.

The psychological symptoms are anxiety, crying, impulsiveness, lack of concentration, low or loss of self esteem, feeling hopeless, sad or trapped, and withdrawn attitude along with suicidal tendencies.

These physical symptoms can include trembling, twitching of the muscles, soreness, body pain, insomnia, indigestion and fatigue.

Adjustment disorder might display psychological and physical symptoms separately or together.

Types of Adjustment Disorder

There are 6 adjustment disorders and each one of them is associated with different symptoms:
1) Adjustment disorder with depressed mood: People diagnosed with this suffer from feelings of hopelessness and sadness is often related with crying. Also, a person might not enjoy the activities, which he earlier enjoyed.
2) Adjustment disorder with anxiety: Symptoms of this are anxiety along with being anxious, overwhelmed, and worried. People with this show less concentration and poor memory. When diagnosed in children, it is usually due to the separation anxiety from loved ones and parents.
3) Adjustment disorder with mixed anxiety and depressed mood: In this both anxiety and depression is experienced.
4) Adjustment disorder with disturbance of conduct: The symptoms of this disorder are more about the involvement of the behavioral issues like starting a quarrel, reckless driving, destructing property and stealing. Teens suffering from this might become absent from school.
5) Adjustment disorder with mixed disturbance of emotions and conduct: The symptoms of anxiety, depression, and behavioral issues are observed.
6) Adjustment disorder unspecified: People who are diagnosed with this type of disorder usually display symptoms those are not associated with other disorders. They exhibit more of physical symptoms and problems with family and friends or at school and workplace.

Treatment of Adjustment Disorder:
If diagnosed with an adjustment disorder, a person can definitely benefit from treatment. This is usually treated with therapy or medicines or a combination of both.
- Therapy is the first choice. A health counselor or a psychologist can give counseling and if there is a need for medication, then you might be referred to a psychiatrist.
- Medication like Nonbenzodiazepine anxiolytic, SSRI or SNRI and benzodiazepines might be prescribed for reducing the symptoms of anxiety.

General Physician,
It is genetic and not related to foods. 10 Study Tips to Improve Your Learning Study Tip 1: Underlining Underlining is one of the simplest and best known study tips. It’s easy to highlight the most significant parts of what you’re reading. One key sentence per paragraph and a few important phrases here and there. You can only retain a certain amount so it’s best to retain the most important information. Study Tip 2: Make your own note and taking notes is one of the most widespread study skills out there. Essentially the aim of note-taking is to summarise lectures or articles in your own words so you can easily remember the ideas. Study Tip 3: Mind mapping A good Mind map can save you many hours of study and further consolidate your knowledge for your exams. Mind Maps are an extremely versatile tools. They can be used for brainstorming, outlining essays or study topics and for general exam preparation, ExamTime offers the ability to create Mind Maps quickly and easily which makes them the ideal tool when it comes to exams. Study Tip 4: Flash cards:- Using these are a particularly effective method of learning when trying to assimilate different facts, dates, formulas or vocabulary. Subjects such as History, Physics, Maths, Chemistry, Geography or any language are made much easier if you incorporate Flashcards in to your study. Study Tip 5: Case Studies Sometimes it can be difficult to grasp the implications of some theories. This is where studying case studies can be a big help. Case studies can help you visualise a theory and place it in a more familiar and realistic context. This is especially useful in business or law subjects. Study Tip 6: Quizzes are an excellent way to review study notes in the weeks and days before an exam. Quizzes can show where your strengths and weaknesses are, so it allows you to focus your efforts more precisely. Moreover, if you share your Study Quiz with your classmates and test each other as much as possible you can discover even more details and areas you may have overlooked. So before any exam, make sure you create and share a bunch of different Quizzes with your Friends. Study Tip 7: Brainstorming This is another study technique that is ideal for studying with friends and/or classmates. Brainstorming is a great way to expand every possible idea out of any topic. Just get a bunch of friends together and shoot the breeze, there are no wrong answers when brainstorming – just talk and capture the ideas, you can review afterward. Study Tip 8: Mnemonic Rules Mnemonics are especially useful when memorising lists and sets. Mnemonics rules basically work by associating certain concepts with other concepts that are more familiar to us. There are many different ways to make mnemonics and these can be individual to the person. Study Tip 9: ORGANISE your study One of the most effective study skills is also one of the most often overlooked; this is organising your study. Creating a TIME TABLE gives you goals and a time in which to achieve them. Having a study timetable as you study is greatly motivational Study Tip 10: Drawing Many people find it easier to recall images rather than text that is why they are better able to memorise concepts if they associate them with pictures or drawings. If you find answer helpful please click on “helpful” tab for knowing my efforts are useful Research-based strategies to boost your memory and keep it strong 7 Strategies for Remembering 1. Become interested in what you're learning. We're all better remembering what interests us. Few people, for example, have a difficult time remembering the names of people they find attractive. If you're not intrinsically interested in what you're learning or trying to remember, you must find a way to become so. 2. Find a way to leverage your visual memory. You'll be surprised by how much more this will enable you to remember. For example, imagine you're at a party and are introduced to five people in quick succession. How can you quickly memorize their names? Pick out a single defining visual characteristic of each person and connect it to a visual representation of their name, preferably through an action of some kind. Remember: Memory is predominantly visual. 3. Create a mental memory tree. If you're trying to memorize a large number of facts, find a way to relate them in your mind visually with a memory tree. Construct big branches first, then leaves. Branches and leaves should carry labels that are personally meaningful to you in some way, and the organization of the facts ("leaves") should be logical.. 4. Associate what you're trying to learn with what you already know. It seems the more mental connections we have to a piece of information, the more successful we'll be in remembering it. This is why using mnemonics. Write out the items to be memorized over and over and over. 5. When reading for retention, summarize each paragraph in the margin. This requires you to think about what you're reading, recycle it, and teach it to yourself again. Even take the concepts you're learning and reason forward with them; apply them to imagined novel situations, which creates more neural connections to reinforce the memory. 6. Do most of your studying in the afternoon. Though you may identify yourself as a "morning person" or "evening person" at least one Study. suggests your ability to memorize isn't influenced as much by what time of day you perceive yourself to be most alert but by the time of day you actually study—afternoon appearing to be the best. 7. Get adequate sleep to consolidate and retain memories. Not just at night after you've studied but the day, you study as well. Far better to do this than to stay up cramming all night for an exam.

Dear, you must have tried very hard for a long time to keep fit and prevent weight gain. Thats why you are worried about weight gain on trivial basis. Weight loss has a science behind it and weight can not be gained in a fraction of time. You have already activated your metabolism by doing regular exercise to keep you fit and your body needs rest too otherwise thr will be stress and fatigue of muscles which may injure you. If you have looked carefully, every fitness regime talks about appropriate resting periods for the body to prepare for next exercise and for the changes to take place. There is a reason behind these. Fitness is achieved by following rules and principles refrding how body works. Exercizing too much may not do miracles. You are getting obsessed about weight loss thats why you worry too much. Do not fovus on irrelevant worries that your mind throws at you. Believe in your efforts. Fitness is not only achieved but maintained for long periods too. So make exercise a part of your lifestyle instead of a one time activity. Then you will develop a lighter attitude towards fitness. Rather than pushing yourself beyond limits.

Are you suffering from SOCIAL ANXIETY DISORDER?? Take this test & Know yourself!!!
Social Anxiety Disorder
An intense fear of social situations that leads to difficulties
with personal relationships and at the workplace or in school is most common in people with social anxiety disorder. Individuals with social anxiety disorder often have an irrational fear of being humiliated in public for “saying something stupid,” or “not knowing what to say.” Some people use drugs and alcohol to try and reduce their anxiety. This is very dangerous because even though some drugs make people feel less anxious when they are high, anxiety becomes even worse when the drugs wear off.
Treatment for Social Anxiety Disorder
What treatments are available for anxiety disorders?
Effective treatments include medications and psychotherapy techniques like imagined exposure. In most cases, a combination of psychotherapy techniques and medications is most beneficial.Some commonly used medications for anxiety
disorders are medications called selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors
(SSRIs) like sertraline (Daxid), escitalopram (Nexito) & many more. In addition, importance of having a good diet and getting enough sleep are known to decrease symptoms in people. Regular exercise has also been scientifically proven to be effective.
