I don't know how to read. Even though I read & revise many times I forget them. Again wen I start to read I will feel that I am reading it for first time. How can improve my memory power & how should I read. is there any procedure that I can do so that I can concentrate?

Thanks for your query. This can happen because you are unable to concentrate on what you are reading or it is presented to you in a manner that you cannot retain in your memory or you are too busy and occupied with activities other than study either in your mind or outside. At your age memory problems are uncommon. You just have to modify the way you study. Please contact me in private section and I will be able to advise accordingly. Please ask me in private section for medicines.

My uncle is alcoholic, he want to leave that, he is trying since from many days but he couldn't left. What he should do?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Your uncle has a good situation that he needs help and he also wants help. This is the best situation to give it up. Now it is difficult to do because he has become addicted to alcohol and has a lot to do. Under such circumstances it is best that you admit him into a de-addiction center and let him stay there for at least 6 months and after that 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. he will have a serious reaction, if he consumes even a small quantity of alcohol or alcohol based substances. It has to be carefully monitored to see that he not only consumes the medication but is also avoiding alcohol. Ultimately, it is his will power and the support that he receives from the medical fraternity and his close and dear ones. He 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 him on several measures and precautions he will need to take to stay with his resolve. Even after the rehabilitation he 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. He cannot be treated in isolation because the family has gotten used to his drinking and have made some unhealthy adaptations to somehow cope. The 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. He needs to make a serious plan with his wife and the children and whoever else’s support he can get and act on it fast.

Sir I'm male 21 year old engineering student, my problem is that I can't study more than one hour, but my course is very vast.

Dont worry. Read one hour at a time, daily. That is sufficient. If not, after one hour take abreak for 10 minutes. Then continue. Write down notes, prepare charts or diagrams doing all these will generate interest in that subject.

Hi Doctor, Am a drinking person, past 4 years am regularly drinking evry two days once. Now I want stop the habit. Please advice me.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Only strong will power, determination, attending AA meetings and diverting mind when tempted will help you stop alcohol Alcohol causes 7 types of cancer, including breast, mouth and bowel cancers. When you drink alcohol, cancer-causing chemicals are formed. Alcohol also affects hormone levels and makes cells even more likely to be damaged by smoking. The less alcohol you drink, the lower the risk of cancer. No type of alcohol is better or worse than another, it is the alcohol itself that leads to the damage, regardless of whether it is in wine, beer or spirits. And drinking and smoking together are even worse for you. Not everyone who drinks alcohol will develop cancer. But on the whole, scientists have found that some cancers are more common in people who drink more alcohol than others. Every year, alcohol causes 4% of cancers .Tips to cut down on alcohol. There are lots of simple ways to cut down on the amount of alcohol you drink. It can help to work out if there are particular times or situations when you tend to have a drink, whether that’s a bad day at work or a weekly pub quiz tradition, and plan what you’ll say and do differently next time. Have more alcohol-free days a week. For liver health it’s best to have at least 2 days off alcohol in a row each week. Try agreeing on certain days with your partner or a friend and help each other and stick to it. If you are planning to drink alcohol, decide on a limit in advance and make sure you don’t go over it. Swap every other alcoholic drink for a soft one – starting with your first drink. Try shandy instead of a pint of beer, or swap some wine for soda and have a spritzer. Don’t stock up on beer, wine or spirits at home. Finish one drink before pouring another, because topping up drinks makes it harder to keep track of how much you’ve had and when you planned to stop. Avoid buying drinks in rounds, that way you don’t have to keep pace with anyone. Tell a friend or partner that you’re cutting down on alcohol, they can support you – or even join you.

This is all stress and worries of life. May be issues of married life/future marriage, you may be having insecurities and fear. Just relax. Ask yourself what bothers you? have a positive self-talk, and learn what are those things you don't like. You need to accept your self and move on. You need to take care of your lifestyle and learn to be happy. If you cant do it yourself, meet a relationship/life coach/ stress management super-specialist like me. Once you open your heart out, you will feel free and begin to fly in life.

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 when the physical problems and psychological state of the individual is maintained and 3 rd rehbailitation, when anti cravinf medicines and counselling is given. All the best.

My memory is week when I read or write anything after 1 day or an hours I forget. As I am a student it creates lots of problems. Please tell me how to make my memory strong.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

Because of your age you may have hormonal imbalances which may impact your memory because of the chemical but also the distractions that come with it. But you may work on the following even if the hormones kick in: daily exercise of at least half an hour is a must. Even if you go to a gym, ask for aerobic and/or callisthenic exercises with whatever else you are doing. A healthy body harbors a healthy mind. With regard to memory, it is very important that your brain and body is ideally rested to be able to recall whatever is required, rather comfortably. Puzzles pose problems to the brain that help it to use new pathways and neurons, which give the brain considerable exercise. It taxes the left brain to use logic to solve the myriad possibilities which other activities do not stimulate. Crosswords are excellent for vocabulary learning and use. Jigsaws and rubik cube stimulate different permutations to finally settle on the most likely one. Picture completion and anagrams help approach problem solving from several angles. Do sudoku, and memory co-relation activities and skills. Have a good night? s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber (whole grains, fruits and vegetables), nuts, avocado, eat dark chocolate, consume less of fat and use olive oil instead, do yoga meditation exercises, etc. You need to check out if you are stronger visual or auditory. The visual is a better mode than the auditory. However, if you combine the two modes, you will get the best concentration. Have a special place of learning, which should be well lit, with soft painted walls, well-ventilated, with no distractions. When you get bored, study by writing. If you repeat learning at least five to seven times, you will apparently remember for a longer time. Sit comfortably but do not slouch. The reading material should be of a fairly large print. Study at small intervals of about 40 minutes and then take a break or change the subject. Short-term memory is a faculty of the left brain, and long-term memory is a feature of the right brain. When people are stressed, they tend to favor the right brain and abandon the left brain, where short-term memory resides. So, it is really very simple: deal with the stress and activate left brain functions. Here are a few suggestions to activate left brain function: 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. There are some memory enhancing techniques and study methods that your teacher will be able to guide you with. If your home life is full of distractions and stress, it is likely to affect your memory, adversely. In that case, I suggest that the family goes for counseling too.

You are going through grief reaction, which is normal after loss of a loved one. Time is the healer for the emotional and behavioral changes, however if your depression is severe enough to affect you in a significant manner, kindly consult a psychiatrist for short term antidepressant medication, depending on the complaints. There are stages in grief shock, denial, acceptance, bargaining, depression, resolution. If the depressed mood is very much, consult a psychiatrist and take a course of antidepressants. The recovery will be hastened.

Dear lybrate user, your headache and body pain might be because of a number of reasons like, lack of sleep, stress, lack of proper food, vitamin deficiencies etc. You need to consult a doctor, who will check you physically and only then will be able to diagnose the real cause of your discomfort. It is advisable to visit your doctor first and follow his/her advise. Later on once you start feeling better physically, then again check with yourself, if you still feel depressed or sad then you may consult a counsellor, who will help you to get rid of your negative thoughts. Take care.

Mr. Lybrate-user there is a standard treatment for schizophrenia all over the world be it india pakistan iran turkey. Schizophrenia is a long standing illness may be life long in most cases but it can be made stable through medicines. Just like bp diabetes medicine go on life long and the person may suffer from symptoms time to time same way in schizophrenia symptoms may occur time to time when medicine will be revised but has to be taken life long. Consult for any guidance. Show him to a good psychiatrist and stick with treatment.

Dear Ms. lybrate-user, I went through your query in detail and can understand what you must be going through in life. The symptoms that you have mentioned are definitely suggestive of depression. Feeling tired, lack of concentration, feeling sad, anxiety, sleep disturbances, headache are all symptoms of depression. You should consider getting yourself evaluated by a psychiatrist and accordingly initiate treatment. Medications ad psychotherapy will help you in getting over your symptoms and recover from depression. Although you have not mentioned details about the particular incidents, I am sure talking about them to your psychiatrist will help. Talk to someone close daily to vent out your feelings. You can also consider writing a diary daily. Start exercising daily. I do hope that you are soon able to recover from your symptoms. Best wishes.

Guess What: Shedding Tears while Watching Movies is NOT Awkward!

MBA (HR), D.Sc, MS - Counselling and Psychotherapy, M.Sc - Psychotherapy

Guess What: Shedding Tears while Watching Movies is NOT Awkward!

Shedding tears while watching movies can make you feel better

We all love watching movies be it comedy, action, family dramas or emotional ones. So many of us get emotional while watching an emotional movie. But how many of us actually shed tears? many of us are too conscious or suppressive about how we feel while watching a movie with friends. While watching comedy movies makes us happier and rejuvenates, do you have an idea that crying while watching emotional/dramatic movies has an even more positive impact on us than comic laughter.

Let's see how and why?

1. Some shed tears and some don't: while watching an emotional movie, some of us get emotional and some not only get emotional but cry too. But come to think of it, if you are totally involved in an emotional movie, where a scene comes where you get emotional and you feel like crying but you don't cry, aren't you suppressing an emotion within you? it's certainly a better idea to go with the flow and cry when you feel like crying.

2. Why crying is good: now you must be thinking that i'm strong enough to not let my emotions over drive me, then why should I cry? but do you have an idea that by doing you are harming yourself. If you do not cry, that sadness will hold on to you and you will keep thinking about it but if you shed tears, it will relieve you and you will feel better and happy after some time. Suppressing any kind of emotion is bad for your mental peace. Better take it out and feel relieved. If you will keep the sadness within you, it will keep on growing.

3. Why crying is better than laughing: no one would believe that crying could be better than laughing. The duration of holding on to an emotional situation is more than a happier one. But if we let the sad emotion flow in the form of tears, the feeling of sadness will go and we will feel light and happier.

Memory can be increased by encoding data using various memorising techniques like mnemonics. You have mentioned that you are suffering from anxiety and depression and are on medication. Please do regular exercise like jogging or walking or yoga etc, eat well balanced food, sleep well and spend time in activities that you enjoy doing. You can consult a counsellor for exploring your issue. You can take guidance of your psychiatrist too.

Feeling bad & nervous. Want to be happy always. Want to get out of anger stress & depression.

Feeling bad & nervous. Want to be happy always. Want to get out of anger stress & depression.
Stress is part of our life. We need to think how we are looking at it. Stress is like string instrument, if string is too tight or even too loose then music is not played well. But is its in proper tension ot plays wonderful music. Same our day to day stressful events. It is important how much we get stressed because of them. If too much stressed then it results into anxiety depression and anger. Then we wait for the situation to get better. But all we needto do is relax ourself first and look at situation carefully, believe in our ability to handle them, remember when similar things happened in past and we did them successfully. It is our belief in our self that keeps us going. Also learning self hypnosis and mindfulness meditations help us keep calm and handle such situations in a better way. Do mindfulness breathing exercises 4times a day. Write your positive achievements everyday to boost your confidence. Engage in hobby. Look out for and cherish happy moments. Remember we are not always stressed. No two moments are same. Warm regards
