You can resolve this problem. There are two problems here: fear and intimidation in front of people.You have a problem with fear. The fear has to do with people and more so if they are people in authority. If you deal with that fear, then a lot of your stammering will stop. Talk to a counselor and sort that out. There will still be a residue affect left because of pure habit. This can be resolved by some exercises, which should begin with real earnest right away. Practice speaking aloud in a closed room, but this time, choose words for which your stammer is most. Also practice singing sentences but ending the last word as a statement that is read. Next time end with two words stated, then three words etc. The lip exercise: with tight pressure press and roll the tip of your tongue against the edge of your lips, clockwise first and then anticlockwise, as many times as you possibly can. Purse your lips into an ‘O’ and withdraw it back stretching it like when you say an ‘E’, several times a day. Drop your lower jaw and flip it left to right and right to left, as many times as you can to loosen it. Practice making a resonating sound by increasing and decreasing the volume within the same breath. Sing the vowels A, E, I, O, U stretching each vowel as much as you can.

You can come out of depression but you need to combine counseling with medication. In counseling, you will learn a lot of skills and techniques that will help you to meet the daily challenges in life for that of a depressed person. 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, 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 callisthenic exercises with some form of counting, regularly. Whatever happens please cooperate with the therapy and do not discontinue until the condition is completely resolved.

I am loving one person, but he is not much caring me. He loves and take care of me only when I am near to him. I want to forget him and lead my life or I want to make him to love me more. What should I do. Do I need to take counseling. And if want to do any work or anything always negative vibes are coming in mind like I can't do this and I may lose in this. I want to improve my positive energy. I am reserved type and I can't move freely with everyone. I want to change that attitude and want to be free and jovial with everyone. Please suggest me the solution. Thank You.

Unfortunately some people spend their lifetime "changing" themselves. Better approach is to accept oneself unconditionally. Self respect stems from loving oneself. Comparing with other personality type and wanting to be like them is like coconut tree wanting to be like mango tree. Make a list of your own strong points and love your self for them. It is painful to live with someone who criticises you, finds faults with you all the time. It is even more painful if that criticising person is yourself. When you have healthy self respect you effortlessly improve in other areas if necessary. Drop the person if you don't see he values you. After dropping him (stopping communication) if he really misses you he will come back. If he doesn't, then you are better off away from such a person. Take care. Be yourself. That's the way to grow in healthy way.

Respected Sir, The fact that you mention that you were suffering from Depression and GAD since 7 years and took treatment only for 2 would lead me to believe that you were either irregular in your treatment or inadequately treated. If that is the case, the symptoms you mentioned are clearly due to persisting of your depression. On the other hand if you have been taking the drugs regularly and still have these symptoms, that would make yours a resistant case. I would have to know the drugs that you had been taking to help you out further, if you feel that you were resistant even after complying with the treatment.

Yes, you can start the medication right away but you must also do counseling. Depression and anxiety go together for many people. 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, 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.

Whatever happens please cooperate with the therapy and do not discontinue until the condition is completely resolved. To improve your sleep please do the following too: In your case particularly, do not sleep during the day; don’t even lie down. Go for regular exercise (breathing through your nostrils only) at a fixed time (at about 6 am) every day, whether you sleep or not. You must develop this habit of sleeping by 10 pm latest every night and wake up at a uniform time by 6 am every morning, even if you do not get sleep. If you do not get sleep, just lie down and if you have a bed lamp (or you could get one) lie down and read something light but not exciting. Your eyes will tire and you will fall asleep. If you like you may also put on light and soft music with the sleep function on. Depending on whether you are a visual or auditory person, you may watch TV in a lying down position until you feel sleepy. Have a warm bath before going to bed (for some people a cold bath at night seems to induce sleep! If you are one of them, please do so). Place the head side of your bed in a North-South position. The room must be as dark as possible and there should be no electronic items that give off even a light LED glow. There must be ample ventilation in the room. Avoid strong odors, except lavender, on your body or in the room, or on your sheets and clothes. There should not be any live plants in your bedroom. Sleep with the lightest of clothes or without any clothing. When lying down to sleep, lie down on your left ear as much as possible. Do not sleep directly under an overhead fan. You must eat a good breakfast, a fairly light lunch, and an early dinner, which should be a very light meal. Whatever you eat in the other meals, have only a pure carbohydrate meal at night with any vegetables, and preferably before 8 pm. Do not drink much liquids after or near about dinner time. When lying down to sleep you may use the 4-7-8 breathing pattern of sleep inducement i.e. Breathe in for four counts through your nostril only, hold for 7 counts, and exhale with a whoosh sound, through your mouth only, for 8 counts. Repeat this four times in the morning and just before you sleep at night. If you know Emotional Freedom Technique or EFT (check this out either on YouTube or Google), then please practice this too for sleep induction. Self-hypnosis and slow relaxation techniques, at night will be tremendously useful. Acupuncture or acupressure will both be very useful too. Pray last thing at night before you sleep.

Hello lybrate-user, I can understand your concern. In your case you can go with 5 mg daily for 1 month. After that you can divide 5 mg tablet in to 4 parts and start taking 3/4th means 3.75 mg for 3 weeks and later on 1/2 (2.5 mg) and 1/4th (1.25 mg) tablet gradually in same manner to prevent withdrawal. Apart form this relaxation techniques, yoga and meditation can help. Take care. For detail consultation and queries you can contact me on www.Lybrate.com/drchintan.

Diabetes Proves Deadly for Smokers

While it is well known that smoking causes lung cancer, heavy smokers with diabetes are also at increased risk of death from causes other than lung cancer, according to a study being presented next week at the annual meeting of the radiological society of north america (rsna).

Diabetes is a chronic illness in which there are high levels of glucose in the blood. More than 29 million people in the u. S. Have diabetes, up from the previous estimate of 26 million in 2010, according to a report released by the centers for disease control and prevention. One in four people with diabetes doesn't know he or she has it. Having diabetes can also put people at risk for numerous other health complications.

To determine the extent to which diabetes is associated with deaths from lung cancer, other cancers, and other causes among heavy smokers, researchers examined the risk for all-cause mortality among people with and without diabetes within the national lung screening trial (nlst), a massive, multicenter trial that compared low-dose helical ct with chest x-ray for early detection of lung cancer in current and former heavy smokers.

" in our study, we found a statistically significant link between diabetes and all-cause deaths, non-lung cancer deaths and lung cancer deaths in women" said kavita garg, m. D, professor of radiology from the university of colorado -- denver.

For the study, Dr. Garg and colleagues looked at data from 53, 454 participants in the nlst and identified 5, 174 participants who reported having diabetes at screening.

They conducted an analysis of the relative risk for overall mortality, lung cancer mortality, and non-lung cancer mortality associated with diabetes, adjusting for age, gender, body mass index (bmi), and pack-years of smoking. Over the course of the study, there were 3, 936 total deaths, including 1, 021 from lung cancer and 826 from cancers not of the lung.

Participants with diabetes tended to be older, reported more pack-years of smoking, and had a higher bmi than those without diabetes. There were 650 deaths (12.6 percent of patients) among participants with diabetes and 3, 286 deaths (6.8 percent of patients) among participants without diabetes.

" we found that diabetes doubles the risk for all-cause mortality and non-lung cancer mortality among heavy smokers" Dr. Garg said" we also found that women with diabetes have an increased risk of lung-cancer mortality, but did not find the same effect in men"

The researchers continue to analyze data in an effort to better understand the underlying cause. In the meantime, Dr. Garg emphasizes the importance of taking control of diabetes and undergoing lung cancer screening if you're a smoker.

" patients have to take care of their diabetes to maximize the benefit of ct screening for lung cancer" she said" it truly makes a magnitude of difference in mortality risk"

Respected Sir, If the doctor you consulted was a psychiatrist and he felt that there was a need for you to take them after his evaluation, I am inclined to agree with him. However you are right that there are withdrawal symptoms on stopping Paroxetine abruptly. Hence if you wish to stop these drugs, I would advise you to discuss the same with your doc so that he can taper and stop accordingly. The withdrawal symptoms are also temporary and hardly last more than 2 weeks. I am not entirely sure what you meant by natural method, but there are various forms of psychotherapy that can also help you with your anxiety. Good luck.

Dear Lybrate user, It seems like it was a very traumatic experience for you to miss out on your exams, but if I underatand you correctly, you have the opportunity to do your exams in about three months, and you are able to study for them and do them? So it sounds to me that the best way to come out of this trauma is to do the exams the next time you can, and be gentle to yourself on the way there. The guilt you are feeling for not showing up the first time is not helping you. Try instead to see what you might learn from this experience and see that whatever reasons you had for not showing up, you just couldn't make it that time. All the best!

I was a chain smoker but now started gym. How can I increase my stamina and clear my lungs.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

To increase your stamina you need to exercise regularly and increase the time and intensity of your exercise. While exercising it is very important to breathe only through your nostrils. Aerobic exercise is the best and pay less emphasis on weight training as such. When you smoke you damage your lungs: when you smoke more you damage your lungs more: and if you smoke less you damage your lungs no less – well maybe a little less. 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 upon. 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. 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.

Dear Rajesh, If such a food is available, the doctors will be recommending it all over the world instead of creating awareness of depression and spending lots of money on developing new antidepressant tablets. However, whatever is recommended for heart's health is also advised for depression, like omega 3 rich food (oily fish, flax seeds). Tryptophan rich food like banana is also advised. The dose of them is highly impractical for anyone to consume.

Tremors, feeling anxious or nervous, sense of panic, sweating, increased heartbeat, feeling of impending doom, stomach discomfort, dizziness etc are signs of anxiety. These can be debilitating. If the anxiety us overwhelming, consult a psychiatrist at the earliest. With the right medication and counseling, it is likely your symptoms will improve. Other than that, try yoga, deep breathing, meditation, moderate exercise, progressive muscular relaxation and guided meditation. Please do not experiment with medicines. This is not something you can do on your own, based on what you have heard. Do not take any medications on your own without the approval of your treating doctor. The side effects of mixing medications can be life threatening and often fatal.

Respected Sir, The numerous symptoms that you have mentioned could be due to the stress of your studies and exams. However they could also be due to various other medical/ neurological reasons. Hence I would suggest that you first get consultation from a Physician or Neurologist to rule out any physical causes for your symptoms. Now coming to the mental part, I would suggest that you keep a schedule or time table first and learn to manage your time. This is important as the memory loss could be due to overcrowding of your brain with many thoughts. Secondly, keep some daily for Exercises, yoga or atleast some basic relaxation exercises. These could not only help in improving your mental state but also help with your allergies. If the symptoms still persist and no physical cause is identified, I would suggest that you get in touch with a psychiatrist too to get yourself thoroughly evaluated and get the necessary treatment.

Stammering 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. Hope your query is answered. Feel free to ask if you have any doubts. Wishing you good health.

Dear Mit, You have to motivate him for stopping chewing tobacco. Apart from the bad effects of chewing tobacco, you have to inform him of health benefits of stopping. You should understand, it is not easy. You should appreciate any small efforts he takes to stop - though there are lapses in between. Make him chew only the betel leaves and nuts without tobacco.He can keep his mouth busy with cloves, elachi or cinnamon also. If he has withdrawal, assure him of nicotine replacement chewing gum. In 12 weeks time he will be able to master his craving. Keep giving him some gifts for reducing tobacco chewing. Show him the results of his medical illnesses's improvement like BP or sugar results.
