Hi there i am 28 year old girl. Recently I had gone through a big problem in my life which turned my life. From that day sometimes it happens when I think about anything serious I am unable to breathe for some time and my left hand started paining. Had gone through ECG there was right axis deviation in that but when undergone ECHO it was normal. But the same problem continues with me still when I took anything serious. Moreover I feel stressed so often after that.

Dear madam, as you said, you have your own emotions and he is behaving like a dumb. May be he might have got married to use your money also to enjoy with his girlfriend without knowing anyone around him. He will not let you to leave the home, coz he needs your money. I guess that he is not getting satisfaction out of your relationship. First of all, ask him what bothers him not to have a peaceful life with you? is that the money or the extramarital relationship? if he decides for sure that he doesn't want to lead life with u, stop giving him money or your salary. Tell him that you want the money for your safety as he decided to leave. Tell his parents that he is in contact with another lady so that he is not having proper personal life with u, it is important because he may think of situations to transfer his mistakes on you. Tell your brother and mother that this what the situation is going on. Do not stay with him! coz without his knowledge or by any situational chance if you get pregnant, do you think that he will take care of you? if you say yes, then will try to give him a chance to learn from his mistakes. But if your mind says that he will never regret for his mistakes, then it is the time for your call. Coz you have ask questions in your mind that does he prepare his mind for the child in future? does he spend time and money for the upbringing of your child? so you need to walk away from that place dear. If your family members forces you to get married to the next person, then think of it! meanwhile focus on your job and earn some money for your future safety. Learn from this mistake that do never give your personal valuable things like passbook and jewels to anyone whom you r going to live with unless you have full faith in him.

I am 24th year old have memory loss issue some time before 2 month. What should I do.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You need to look back two months ago to see what might have happened to stress you. Natural concentration is when the mind can hold a thought for a long time, when thoughts are under our own control. Without concentration the mind goes here, there and everywhere, jumping like a monkey from branch to branch, idea to idea. When there is a natural concentration, we can control our mind and there is peace. This one-pointed concentration on a thought, holding it for as long as we like, gradually collects strength in the mind and in the self. A strong mind is a mind that is peaceful, stable, satisfied and can remain in the deeper meaning of a thought. There is no waste caused by over-thinking, or the high speed of thought: These are the two greatest diseases of the mind these days, which is why there is so much stress and mental breakdown. Stress can foil concentration and learning ability. Although concentration is different to memory, they can affect each other. Concentration precedes memory. If you are under stress your concentration will go for a toss, then naturally memory will be totally foiled. So meet with a counselor to take care of the stress and your memory will happily return. You can follow these simple rules in the meantime: 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. 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. 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 is a new exercise called Super Brain Yoga, which is done by holding the right earlobe with your left thumb and index finger, and the left earlobe with your right hand’s thumb and index finger. In this position you must squat down and rise up and do this for five minutes every day. 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. The following foods do help too: Blueberries, walnuts, turmeric, Spinach, tomatoes, broccoli, acorn squash, green tea, oily fish, boiled egg, turkey, apples, oatmeal, leafy greens, lentils, pumpkin seeds, avocado, cinnamon, thyme, sunflower seeds, and red wine.

Cannabis (marijuana/hashish/ganja/charas/weed) consumption is associated with chronic amotivation syndrome and behavioral problems. It has been known to trigger psychotic episodes, as well as anxiety attacks. Consider getting an evaluation by a psychiatrist with experience in deaddiction to get to the root of the problem. Strict abstinence from any kind of substance of abuse is essential for proper recovery.

You have essential fatty deficiency along with several other vitamins as a result your seretonin (neuro transmitter) and other feel good enzyme levels are low as a result your body is not capable of stress management. You must eat walnuts, flex seeds, fishes like salmon, mackerel, sardines etc. Severe deficiency is treated nutritional supplements, especially when the soils are depleted and our diet is unable to provide our body with essential nutrients.

My wife is 57 years. She has thyroid problem and regularly taking tablets. She is unable to tolerate even silly problems. Often she is loosing her patience, getting angry & scolding family members. Doing all works very slowly thus going to bed late early morning by 2 or 3 am. My question is whether due to thyroid these are all happen or is she mentally retarded? please answer.

Sir, you please cross check your endocrinologist about normalcy of thyroid medications. Once he gives a clear signal about his concern, then we can think this is endocrine related psychiatric disorder, which are very much common in such cases and managed easily.

Dear Reshan, Welcome to lybrate. The duty of your mind is to think. You cannot control your mind's thinking. Once you just leave your mind without diversion, it always end up in negative territory. But certainly you can divert your thinking. You can make your mind to be always positive by engaging in creative activities, hobbies, games and passionate towards whatever you do. Thereby you can reduce your stress and tension also. Once you can do this, loss of proper sleep and stress also can be made normal. Please consult a psychologist for more advice. Take care.

But if this feeling is pervasive and has been present for a long time along with some other symptoms, its better you consult a psychiatrist with all possible complaints and details.

What is the reason of either stress incontinence or urgency incontinence ? Is there any medicine for it or exercises can resolve the problem?

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
What is the reason of either stress incontinence or urgency incontinence ? Is there any medicine for it or exercises ...
Stress incontinence is the unintentional or uncontrollable leakage of urine. In other words, the inability to control your urge to urinate in certain circumstances. It is a serious and embarrassing disorder, which can lead to social isolation. Stress incontinence typically occurs when certain kinds of physical movement puts pressure on your bladder. Laughing, sneezing, coughing, jumping, vigorous exercise, and heavy lifting can all cause stress incontinence. Any pressure placed on the abdomen and bladder can lead to the loss of urine.Urge incontinence occurs when you have a sudden urge to urinate. In urge incontinence, the bladder contracts when it shouldn’t, causing some urine to leak through the sphincter muscles holding the bladder closed.Kegel exercises are usually the first treatment option for urinary incontinence. The process strengthens the muscles involved in urination, specifically the pelvic floor muscles. Try contracting the pelvic floor for 5 to 10 seconds, and then rest for the same amount of time. Contracting the pelvic floor is the same as when you stop the flow of urine midstream. If you’re unsure if you’re doing it correctly, try stopping your urine midstream. Doing a Kegel exercise should replicate that sensation of stopping your urine.

Dear lybrate user please try to bring some change in your lifestyle like waking up early in the morning and going for a walk, doing some exercises. You can also join some gym. I would suggest that you start maintaining a daily diary. Write your thoughts and associated feelings there. Try to reflect upon the reasons for these negative thoughts. Whenever these thoughts crop up in your mind try to distract yourself. Most important suggestion is that along with these medicines you please start consulting a psychologist and take up regular one on one counseling sessions. I hope you will benefited from the above mentioned suggestions and try to apply them in your life. Please feel free to give your feedback. Take care.

My husband, 53 years old, has almost stopped communicating with family and friends. He avoids company, refuses to go out other than office, doesn't answer phone calls except extremely important. He is a regular drinker and a chain smoker. He is not open to any kind of conversation. He watches TV all the time he is at home. He sleeps around the clock on weekends. His health checkup shows that his vital organs are functioning perfectly. He suffers from Vitamin D deficiency, for which he is under medication for the past 3 months and his triglyceride level is high. We are married for 24 years. He hardly ever initiated sex, even when we were newly married. He is a single child of over-protective parents. He has had a few extra-marital liasons till some years back. He has never initiated any kind of family outings. His academic performance in school/college was below average. There was traces of sexual perversion and sadism in him, which get exposed through his behaviour at times, specially when he is high on alcohol. He gets attracted to very young girls and maid servants. He refuses to undergo counselling/treatment. How can I help him?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
He is an alcoholic, a smoker, a womanizer, a sexual pervert, non-communicative, does not have intimacy with you, he was unfaithful, he has high triglycerides, is withdrawn, and a weekend recluse. Wow! What a basket case list of problems, and yet you want to help him. He is both blessed and cursed. He is blessed to have someone like you who has stood by him all these years and through all these problems. But he also cursed for this very reason: you are what we call a co-dependent ? A role that facilitates the addictions. You must immediately attend an Al-Anon group where you will meet other family members of alcoholics who support each other and adopt strategies and methods to counter the problem of the addict, and to change your own role to bring about the change in your husband. They have a 12-step program that is highly effective and will address the situation potently. He must be taken for counseling, or admitted in a facility for rehabilitation. Some institutes will wait till he is in a sufficiently enough drunken stupor to pick him up by force, if you give them the undertaking to go ahead with this action. If you feel bad, sorry or reluctant, then you are facilitating the addiction and coming in the way of his recovery. He needs help and so do you. It is a family disease, and firm actions are the order of the day. Use the help of other strong and respected family members to push for these measures. You may want to read my book on addictions to better understand the problems and take right actions. It is not too late, so just go ahead.

Smoking is associated with significantly serious health problems like lung cancer, oral cancer, impotence, etc. It also causes breathlessness and difficulty in breathing, and reduction in stamina. The best thing is to quit smoking immediately to promote good health. Consult a psychiatrist for the same. You may consult me if required.

HI lybrate-user, is it because you have any particular thoughts going on in your head? Practice Mindful Breathing The primary goal of mindful breathing is simply a calm, nonjudging awareness, allowing thoughts and feelings to come and go without getting caught up in them. Sit comfortably, with your eyes closed and your spine reasonably straight. Bring your attention to your breathing. Imagine that you have a balloon in your tummy. Every time you breathe in, the balloon inflates. Each time you breathe out, the balloon deflates. Notice the sensations in your abdomen as the balloon inflates and deflates. Your abdomen rising with the in-breath, and falling with the out-breath. Thoughts will come into your mind, and that’s okay, because that’s just what the human mind does. Simply notice those thoughts, then bring your attention back to your breathing. Likewise, you can notice sounds, physical feelings, and emotions, and again, just bring your attention back to your breathing. You don’t have to follow those thoughts or feelings, don’t judge yourself for having them, or analyse them in any way. It’s okay for the thoughts to be there. Just notice those thoughts, and let them drift on by, bringing your attention back to your breathing. Whenever you notice that your attention has drifted off and is becoming caught up in thoughts or feelings, simply note that the attention has drifted, and then gently bring the attention back to your breathing. It's okay and natural for thoughts to enter into your awareness, and for your attention to follow them. No matter how many times this happens, just keep bringing your attention back to your breathing. Consult with me for therapy.

Mix these with 100 ml water and drink it every morning and night.(same dose). Do not stop your allopathic medicines. Ask your doctor whether he can taper it down if you feel alright.

The reasons behind depression should be addressed and its symptoms treated, meditation is like thought diversion, may produce temporary relief, but does not cure depression. Also in some meditation can worsen occurence of negative thoughts in a silent/ blank mind.
