Dear lybrate user. I can understand. You must quit smoking immediately. Gymnasium exercises and smoking never go hand in hand. Please quit smoking. Regarding your building of muscles, you have to make a chart of food you take and then consult me again. You may have to alter your diet so that you get all the required nutrients. Also let me know for how many hours you exercise in gym, and what types of exercises you do and how many times. Take care.

my son is 20 years old and studying B. Tech 3rd year now. He was very soft and cute upto the age of 16 years. However, during college days and till now his behavior is changed a lot. He is always likes to spent with friends, not focusing on studies, more anger, irritated. Due to this, I am disturbed a lot and some times shouts on him. In general, he is very innocent. Because of the friends, he is neglecting studies and careless. Please advice what kind of measures to be taken with my son to bring back to normal.

You son is growing up. He is in a phase of his life, where he is evolving as a seperate individual. His hormone levels are high. He is full of youth and energy and hence will have curiosity towards life. He would like to experiment with various things and will be more adventurous than before. He will argue with you do not shout at him, be firm. But do not worry, if you have given him good values till now, he will know how to handle life. Presently, he will prefer company of his friends and he might say that you are backward, orthodox etc etc. Just listen to what he says. Have open communication with him. Do not judge him for anything. Let him enjoy the freedom of being a seperate individual. He will have different views and opinions about everything in life. He is getting angry with you probably because, you are trying to restrict him. It is high time, that he takes responsibility for his own behaviour. Make him understand that if he fails in the exams, his future will get affected. You do not take responsibility for his behaviour and studies. Let him responsibility for his life. At the same time, try to understand his dreams. Guide him properly. Take him to various successful people in life. Let him interact with them. Soon he will realise, how he needs to behave. At the age of 20, present day children are a challenge for all parents. You do not have to bring your son back to normal, because I think he is normal. He is just full of energy, youth, curiosity and plenty of dreams but no life experience. Keep a check on his friend circle, so that he does not get into any kind of addictions. Give him freedom, talk to him about your worries, listen to his concerns, view points, have faith in him, let him know that he is very valuable to you. At the same time, please do not let him manipulate you. Be in control of the situations as a father. All the best.

Hi Team I can't control my self for consuming alcohol, can you please help me out.

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Chennai
Alcohol dependence involves intense craving or desire to drink alcohol. People drink for pleasure or rationalize it on external factors like family problems, work tension, etc. They drink continuously, i.e. Almost daily or even weekly once or twice with withdrawal symptoms, tolerance, bodily damage, etc. They need to be brought for de addiction which involves You need to consult a psychiatrist and go for 3 steps of de addiction. 1st is detoxification, when alcohol is stopped and the withdrawal is made smooth with minimal discomfort, 2 nd is maintenance and further deaddiction when the physical problems and psychological state of the individual is maintained and anti-craving drugs started 3 rd rehabilitation, when relapse prevention is the goal, while maintaining deaddiction. All the best.

I'm fed up with life and life is not worth living for me. There is a lack of happiness lack of confidence and lack of concentration. There is no hope no enlightenment no dream no aim in life. I'm very much disinterested disheartened and depressed. I'm under a lot of stress and anxiety. I'm sailing in a boat without the sailor in the stormy sea. I'm just like the kite which strings are cutoff. I'm not living life but just passing it. I'm worthy of nothing. I'm feeling lonely in the midst of the crowd. I'm skipping my drugs for the high blood pressure. My blood pressure shoots up to 200/130 without any symptoms. I pass nights together without sleep. I have cutoff myself from my inner and outer self. I'm unable to cope up with life. If it's physical crisis I can deal with it, but as far as the emotional and moral crisis are concerned I'm just unable to deal with it.

Dear friend, I feel strongly for you. I wish I could be close to you say what I am going to tell you right now. If I try to understand how you might be feeling I feel suffocated. I am sure you are not only feeling lonely and suffocated but you are also feeling hopelessness. I do hope that you understand that what you are feeling in not only psychological. It has some strong physiology working behind it. You have some chemical imbalance in your body. That is what is creating this emotional tornado in our mind. I know with proper care and actions you will be able to once again enjoy your life and will also be able to contribute positively to make this world a better place. I am asking you to please take help from either a counselor or a psychologist. If need to consult a psychiatric and start medication. I will be more than happy to help you come out of this dark tunnel and lead a beautiful life ahead. You need to seek help and consult someone as soon as possible. I am also giving you some tips below which you can try, one thing at a time, one day at a time. I love you and I want you to take charge of your life. You may not know but you are here for a reason. What ever it is that is hurting you will go away the moment you start taking charge. As a human being you deserve the best. You deserve love and respect from people around you and love and respect begins with self. Look at yourself in the mirror and love that lady for who she is. You have endless potential within you. You could be whatever you decide you want to be. Have faith and let it go. Try following things and it will help you one day at a time. Stress has become part of our daily life now. Due to being in this chronic stress there is lot of negative energy and thinking as well as behavior processes are triggered. The good news is that our mind could be wired to switch back to positive things and resilience building. When things does not happen as we wish or people do not behave as we expect that is when out of disappointment, frustration, loneliness, anger, sadness. Etc we react and our mind starts thinking negative thoughts. Changing this pattern of responding to stressful situation requires both persistence and patience. Also you will only be able to work on this out of love and kindness towards you. Strong motivation will go a long way. Writing a statement about how would you want to respond in a similar situation and how will your life and your happiness will change if you do learn to manage your stress and how to respond to it. Once that is clear. Try following things to learn relaxation response which leads to better coping mechanism on a daily basis. To begin with doing guided progressive muscular relaxation before sleeping will help you relax. You could google and download an audio file. I would also suggest you to take a multiple small break to take 3 nice and deep breath while keeping your eyes closed. You could do this while sitting or standing or while even walking or climbing stairs (keep your eyes open in that case). When you take a nice and deep break there is actual physiological change in your body. This will help you to activate parasympathetic nervous system which promotes relaxation and helps you calm down and think more clearly. This will also actually improve your performance in your work. Along with this exercise is one of the best way to relive stress and stay fit. Engage in any kind of physical activity at least 4 times a week. This also helps in stress reduction. Along with this some relaxation exercises as well as engaging in joyful activities such as music, singing, dancing, reading, being in nature, gardening, talking with friends or anything which you enjoy will help reducing stress and rejuvenation of your mind and body. Have good routine for sleep and eating. Lot of research has now proven that sugar is very harmful for our health. Reduce sugar and refined white floor in your diet as much as you could. Along with this also increase consumption of raw vegetables in the form of salad in both the meals of your day.

Dear lybrate-user. Please understand there are no short cuts to cure the performance anxiety on bed. This happens because of over expectation. But the more you try to cure it, the more it worsens. That is the basic problem of any performance anxiety. So keep this in mind. Approach it coolly. If not today, tomorrow it will be ok. If you want an" immediate cure" it worsens. Take care.

Life is very precious and its equally important that you live every second happily and enjoy all the beautiful colours of life ,i can understand the situation through which you are going its really painful. Through your query I can feel that you want to change this situation its really good ,when there is a will there is a way. Any professional can show the path but you have to go on that path, you need slightly change in your approach .when any time negative thought runs then just say to yourself that I will deal all this from evening 6 pm to 7 pm and presently I am suppose to do any work which you are doing and at evening write all the thoughts in diary, one more way is that share all thoughts with any good friend. Divert your mind ,make yourself busy as muc h as you can so that you don't get time to think ,make some good friends with whom you can share your feelings, develop some hobby, take sleep of 6-8 hours it is compulsory, for this don't sleep at day time ,you need to maintain your sleeping cycle ,do some yoga and meditation, don't think on this topic as much you will think you will be more frustrated because these thoughts are endless. Take care.

Dear Sir, I am 32 years old and working in a company. For the past few months I am facing an issue related to remembering name of people (both india as well as foreign nationals). I need to understand if its normal or progression towards some kind of disease.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
We have a peculiar situation in India, and I suppose some other nationalities may suffer a similar problem, especially with names. In the culture that one is brought up, names that are the norm here (like Shivaramakrishnan) are tongue-twisters for a western man. This is not some kind of disease but the dialect you are familiar to is more easily remembered. But because we are exposed to two or more types of names from different dialects, we will tend to struggle to remember because of the mental gymnastics involved. That will be some of the effect in your case, where we are so inclined to think in one language and convert it into another before articulating it, let alone remembering it. You may however have some problem if you struggle too much; then you are advised to write these names down and learn to memorize them by association with other easily remembered events, occasions etc. to be able to commit them to a permanent memory bank. You can do it by sparing a little effort, and over time the enigma would become simplified and you need not feel like you are suffering from any disease at all.

Where there is smoke, there is always fire. I am sure you cannot be all that innocent and suffering like this without reason. In every situation, we contribute in some way or the other to our problems. So if you look at what you are contributing to your situation, then you can change that and expect better results. If you know them apologise and meet her again and invite her back. But you must guarantee not to re[peat those problems. It is true that there are people who can be problematic even with the best of situations, yet I recommend that you try to win her over with love. You must also visit a counselor and sort out your issues under that person's guidance. Trying to resolve your problems without professional help will never work out because it seems like the problems are deep-rooted and needs external help. I don't know if the discord is beyond repair but it is worth trying with help from others, but seek the help of a professional only. You must own responsibility for your actions and change your behavior first. Both partners contribute to the situation though it may not be equal contribution. But the solution lies in both of you dealing with your own contributions to make a success out of the reconciliation.

Medical History- Abused codeine- 400 mg, alcohol, Marijuana, nicotine in combination for around 4 years, sought psychiatric help but to no avail, now on alprazolam- 4 mg a day for around 2 months, it helped a lot for fighting with above mentioned drugs, now completely off of codeine and seeming no problems with other mentioned drugs but want to get off alprazolam as well as the anxiety. Is abrupt cessation of alprazolam safe, becoz i don't have an urge to take them, i stopped taking it for around 4 days but experienced some withdrawal symptoms so i started with a 2 mg a day in 2 divided doses and withdrawals are completely gone, mentally ready to rely on innocent activities like yoga, pranayams, exercises. Is a gradual decrease of .5 mg every 7 days would do the trick for me or shal i stop it immediately and suffer withdrawals that i think would be short lasting, but the confusion is that immediate cessation would lead to the return of other habits becoz of that anxiety... Pls help.

You seem to have taken the right step in your life by deciding to be off recreational drugs. But I don't understand why you are hesitant to take professional help to get you off drugs. Abrupt cessation may cause withdrawal symptoms, relapse of drug abuse and many other complications. Why don't you consult a psychiatrist who will give you medicines temporarily to reduce your withdrawal symptoms. Also he will help you in overcoming craving and preventing relapse. - Dr.Parthasarathy, Psychiatrist OMR Chennai.

Amla juice is ok. Use it. Do not think too much about hair lose. Hair comes again do not think about it. Because of stress. You face so many problems. So do not give stress on your mind. Avoid too much thinking on small things. As per your parents advice it is temporary. Hair comes again. Do not worry. Take amla juice it is good. Take rest. Sleep very well. Take good food. Concentrate on your studies. Share all your feelings with your family members and friends. Do not sit alone and don't think on small issues. Be happy all the time. Best of luck.

Dear Lybrate user. In many of the cases Stammering has two important reasons. Vocal chord misalignment or other problems are the primary reason. For this vocal chord complaint, you should consult an ENT specialist and get it corrected. Second reason is purely psychological. Stammer therapy can help you in psychological reasons. Take care.

I think you must take her to a counselor soon. This is actually a transition phase when she is moving over from childhood to adulthood: sometimes she will feel and want to be treated like an adult, and at other times she will feel and act like a little child. She will also think that she knows what she is doing but that is an immature bluff. Still do not disagree with her outright. Let her feel that he is right but discuss the plans and decisions as though you will be going along with it but very artfully bring it back to some rationality yet make it appear that it was her decision and that it was after all right! She may be having a spurt in the production of the male sex hormone, testosterone, which fortunately has a duration of two years, only. Due to this chemical alone there are three identified features that present itself over which she has no control: she will be sexually active, aggressive and rebellious, and she will have acne and pimple problems. Then if she has unresolved childhood issues (which I suspect), they will compound the situation and fuel her uncontrolled behavior. Please remember that she herself may not be aware of all this. In her case, she is manifesting a lot of anger: do you know of any reason from her childhood that may have contributed to unresolved anger? Go to a counselor and discuss these matters over and get support to take care of her. Now what else can you do? The parents need to become her best friends i.e. you must always ally with her and find the path of least resistance, without displaying any weakness. Communication must always be open and favorable. The moment she hides things and does not communicate with you or you withdraw it, there is serious danger. So the parents must make her feel wanted and loved and must never reject or neglect her. Avoid all types of confrontations and discus your concerns with her, openly. Never give her anything without there being some negotiations – barter with her; you give her something in return for some compliance from her. There has to be some ground rules and established boundaries in your house. Let it appear like it is her choice to comply. You have to be strong and firm in some matters. Don’t make decisions for her: offer alternatives that help her make responsible choices. I recommend that you take her for career counseling and determine her aptitude for academic pursuits. There is no harm to tell her that you are afraid as to what is going to happen to her, and afraid that you cannot handle her. This is a fact and so there is no shame in being that open to her. Remember that she is seeking attention by these means. Do not deprive her of it. In fact listen to her arguments, and see where she is coming from and get into that frame of reference to understand her. She may be frustrated with you, if you insist in having it your way, when the world is undergoing rapid changes every day. Try to understand her. Both parents must be on the same page and not argue about her in her presence. Let her know that she is dealing with a united front and that she cannot play games pitching one parent against another. But she must always feel love and acceptance. Two years will fly in a jiffy, and she will settle down very amicably. The way you deal with her, you could either escalate the situation, because you think and know that you are older and stronger; or you could facilitate a youngster to tide over this situation with great resolve and character formation, by being her best friend during this period of strife and turmoil.
