Dear lybrate user...Having arousal difficulty and having erection difficulty are two different problems. Arousal problem suggest that you have decreased desire for sexual activity, while erectile difficulty suggest difficulty in having erection after good desire or arousal. You can get in touch with a clear idea about your problem.

I hope that the new course that you have joined is of your choice and liking. First and foremost, do not hold any guilt of having dropped engg. It is not the end of the world. We all make wrong decisions at times and there is no harm in realising it changing course. Right from the beginning, start to set goals for yourself with respect to your studies. Be regular with your classes and engage yourself in discussions with friends regarding issues related to your course. Be confident, focus on yourself- avoid any kind of comparison with anyone. You are unique and so are your abilities. Find your strength area and work on it. Have faith in yourself, you'll be able to complete this new course, if you approach it with the right attitude. Start some physical exercise, yoga or meditation to improve your confidence and concentration.

Every personality is different from person to person. Hand writings also different from person to person. There is no good hand writing and bad writing. Everything is specific signature. In this stage very difficult to improve your hand writing. I think you are internally suffering from any other disturbances. Better to analyse your internal frustrated thoughts. Better to share with others. Better to friendly with others. Do not be alone. Do not think I loss confidence. Confidence comes based on our activities. Better to do activities with confident. Then it improves your confidence. If not possible better to consult psychologist to analyse your internal feelings and problems. Best of luck.

MD - Psychiatry, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Patna
It is nice to know that you have concern for your friend. Liquor is dangerous to health as well as it has social and economical implications. If a person is addicted to alcohol, he should consult a psychiatrist. Deaddiction procedure includes detoxification, vitamin supplementation, psychotherapy, and anticraving medicines. Certainly he will be helped.

I want to become a civil servant, so I left my career and joined a light job to finance myself. Initially I was good in preparation but these days am unable to do so. Due to that shift job im unable to coupe up with sleep and lacking a mindset for preparation which is also making me depress. Please help.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Sleep is very important to concentration and short term memory. Are you exercising? A good work out every day will help you sleep well. Shift timings can mess up your circadian cycles to badly impact sleep. Check back and see what has disturbed your preparations recently. Go back to the conditions that suited you earlier. Do group study or attend some tutorials, especially if the exams are approaching shortly. You have been responsible in your plans, so I believe that you can reorganize yourself to sort out this problem.

Hello lybrate-user, Stress is one of the commonest situation we all are dealing in with and I can understand your pressures. Since we have to work and manage our personal life too it is important to keep a check on WORK-LIFE BALANCE. Try to take out some time for yourself and for relaxing activities which may help you improving your mood and health and in turn bring positive attitude too. Spending quality time with family and peers is also helpful along with regular exercises. Hope that keeps your BP in control. Take care of yourself. Life is valuable. Good luck.

Hai I am a medical student. Doing my first year. I can't concentrate on my studies properly due to have load. How can I approach each subjects. Anatomy, physiology and biochemistry. How will I study effectively. Seniors told study only important.. Is it enough?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Obviously you are not planning your studies well. Even if you are overloaded, it is possible to carefully make a timetable and follow that meticulously and complete your portions. Please see if these points help: Hints For Planning A Better Study Schedule 1. Plan a schedule of balanced activities. College life has many aspects which are very important to success. Some have fixed time requirements and some are flexible. Some of the most common which you must consider are: • FIXED: Eating FLEXIBLE: Sleeping • Organizations vs Recreation • Classes vs Study • Church vs Relaxation • Work vs Personal Affairs 2. Plan enough time in studying to do justice to each subject. Most college classes are planned to require about three hours of work per week per credit in the course. By multiplying your credit load by three you can get a good idea of the time you should provide for studying. Of course, if you are a slow reader, or have other study deficiencies, you may need to plan more time in order to meet the competition of college classes. 3. Study at a regular time and in a regular place. Establishing habits of study is extremely important. Knowing what you are going to study, and when, saves a lot of time in making decisions and retracing your steps to get necessary materials, etc. Avoid generalizations in your schedule such as “STUDY.” Commit yourself more definitely to “STUDY HISTORY” OR “STUDY CHEMISTRY” at certain regular hours. 4. Study as soon after your lecture class as possible. One hour spent soon after class will do as much good in developing an understanding of materials as several hours a few days later. Check over lecture notes while they are still fresh in your mind. Start assignments while your memory of the assignment is still accurate. 5. Utilize odd hours during the day for studying. The scattered one- or two-hour free periods between classes are easily wasted. Planning and establishing habits of using them for studying for the class just finished will result in free time for recreation or activities at other times in the week. 6. Limit your blocks of study time to no more than 2 hours on any one course at one time. After 1 ½ to 2 hours of study you begin to tire rapidly and your ability to concentrate decreases rapidly. Taking a break and then switching to studying some other course will provide the change necessary to keep up your efficiency. 7. Trade time – don’t steal it. When unexpected events arise that take up time you had planned to study, decide immediately where you can find the time to make up the study missed and adjust your schedule for that week. Note the weekend evenings - most students can afford no more than one of them for recreation, but may wish to use different evenings on different weeks. This “trading agreement” provides for committing one night to study, but rotating it as recreational possibilities vary. 8. Provide space for review. That is, a regular weekly period when you will review the work in each of your courses and be sure you are up-to-date. This review should be cumulative, covering briefly all the work done thus far in the quarter. 9. Practice self-recitation as a device for increasing memory. Organize your notes in a question and answer form and think in terms of questions and answers about the main ideas of the material as you review weekly. When preparing for exams, try to predict the questions the instructor may ask. 10. Keep carefully organized notes on both lectures and assignments. Good notes are one of the best bases for review. Watch for key ideas in lectures and try to express them in your own words in your notes. Watch for headings and bold face type in your reading to give you clues for main ideas in your notes. Take down careful notes as to exactly what assignments are made and when they are due

I have no concentration. What I need to do, in order to give full concentration towards my work?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
If you are under some stress, there will be difficulty remembering. So if you handled stress better, you will certainly improve. With regard to memory, it is very important that your brain and body is rested well to be able to recall whatever is required, rather comfortably. So, catch a good 8 hours of sleep every night. 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 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, 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. You may also meet with a counselor to take care of the stress related emotions, and then you will fare better too.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.

Anxiety is the biggest enemy of concetration, when some one is stressed about a exam then till a certain level it is good but if the stress goes beyoned a particular point your performance will come down so the key is to keep yourself in optimal stress so that you can perform better, if the anxiety is too much then you need to take help for it.

I am 22 years old mail habitual of smoking 1-3 cigarette a day from last 5 years. I want to quit it. Kindly confirm will it create any problem after quitting or will it be okay?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You will be very thankful fr having quit this bad habit and there will be no problems but a lot of good health and happiness. Initially it will be difficult but please persevere. When quitting, you must take one day at a time. If you look too far ahead you will get discouraged and will give up. If you sit and count the number of days you have given up, that will also focus too much on achievement. You must focus on the here and now, on that day to be precise. After all quitting is not that easy due to many factors. So even if you fail one day, you must try and try again. Very few people succeed in their first attempt. Your persistence will eventually pay off. The urge to discontinue is hampered by many factors but the worst of them is the conditioning. In fact these conditions can exist all through the day unlike other addictions. But your desire to want to stop is the most important factor. It is important to find out about the ill-effects of smoking to have a reason that alarms you about continuing in the habit. The information is really scary but true and you must remind yourself about this every day. The nicotine in tobacco smoke stimulates the heart beat to raise the blood pressure in no time at all. So you must avoid it like the plague: it is just very bad medicine for you. In fact it is highly toxic too. You will need to stop smoking or consuming any tobacco related items with immediate effect. 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. You may also take hard candy or chewing gum. If the urge is too strong, then use nicotine chewing gum or nicotine patches, for a little while until the smoking drive reduces, substantially. You may also join Smokers Anonymous in your city where the support is really extraordinary for like-minded people who are also in the same situation. Keep yourself occupied or engaged with interesting activities during the times when it is most tempting. Keep the company of non-smokers for some time i.e. at least for the first 21 days. Above all announce it to everyone that you have quit smoking. Here’s a piece of very good advice: even if you accidentally/willfully take a cigarette, it is not the end of the world – you can start the cessation all over again. You must persevere with the best support until you defeat this addiction. Counseling is very useful in the initial stages and when temptations are at their highest.

Hello, welcome to lybrate I can understand you problem very well. Yes social phobia is a mental ailment, characterised by difficulty to be in social places, difficulty to face strangers, difficulty in giving presentations, facing social gatherings, interviews as well. This leads to significant distress and dysfunction as well. However with the help of medications and psychosocial intervention this condition can be managed. To know more about social phobia, its causes, associated stressors and available treatment options, you can consult me in private.

Dear lybrate-user, welcome to lybrate. Anger and aggression are emotions. Anger comes when you become irritated. Irritation happens when you don't like something, or when something is repeated. As anger is an emotion, it should be vent out. You should be able to throw anger out instead of controlling it. But more perfect will be, know the frustrating situations and stop being emotional. If practiced properly, you will not get irritated at those circumstances at all. Those techniques are much easier to understand. I suggest anger management therapy. Take care.

This fear of death can be quite crippling if you tend to believe in it. Obviously you do. In other words you have a trust problem: trusting in life and in the developments in medicine and other huge benefits of modern science. Now this kind of fear has some basis from some traumatic experience from childhood. If you have already identified that it would help tremendously. The tendency to use right brain, which has a penchant for exaggerating things quite out of proportion, is your handicap. You must meet with a counselor and seriously study all the possible ways that you fear death and the hypochondriacally suggestive factors that you must be obsessing about. When you check these out with another person you trust, you can see your discrepancy in perception and belief in comparison, and perhaps that will help you to change the outlook. You need to have explicit faith in the therapist for this to be effective. Also you will need to examine if the fear about death is related to any particular aspect of your health and explore the measures you can take to stave off that possibility. This is a very important boosting action to take, and you will feel physically able and fit. I am referring to regular physical exercises especially of the aerobic kind; eating healthily, and stress management. But I think that the greatest benefit you can really experience is from the spiritual angle, if you have faith in god. If you have not explored this, you must. For this you must speak to a spiritual counselor or even a psycho spiritual one. Death is an eventuality and accepting that with good faith will really go a long way to love life, to live life to the fullest, and to enjoy every moment of existence as though there is no tomorrow. Everybody else is living life knowing that death will come to them someday but that it can be hastened by neglecting your lifestyle or abusing healthy living. The spiritual pursuit is the best bet among a lot of other measures too which are not possible to mention in this forum.

You have a combination of many issues that can make anyone depressed. Since you are already on medication, you must now include counseling in the therapy to get the best results. In the meantime you may follow these actions: 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.
