It is okay. This also means that your depression is not completely treated. There may be a need for psychotherapy or increase in dose of medicines. Please consult your psychiatrist on this. Partially treating depression is not satisfactory. Depression should be treated completely. Take care!

I had a break up and when I am riding bike isee other couple I think that may my girl and my minds gets disturb bcoz of this I dnt like go out what to do please tell me?

It means that your break up is done only in term of words, your mind still wants to posses her. In other words you want to be her owner. And this kind of possesiveness or ownership may have directed you in such a way that you may have set some restrictions on her freedom and that might be the cause of conflicts between you and your girl leading to a break up. If my view is right, you think, do initiate to express your apologies to her. You will feel relaxed. One thing is certain in this world, all the spiritual teachings say" all the pains and miseries we experiece have their origin in possesiveness"

I am 28 year female. I have been in relationship with a guy for 3years I got pregnant 2times mistakenly. Last I used tablets misoprost. I used as per instructions but I was 4-5months pregnant already baby was abort but some clumps and wastage was stuck which took me to hospital for internal wash. Now it's almost last year August thing but still I'm in emotional trauma. I M living alone. I felt bad about baby. I regret and I feel suicidal sometime. I need medical help to come out of this. I lost my baby. even after this. Because I was blaming him for all this happened.

It is normal to feel greef. After what you have gone through. In your emotional moment you may blame your partner and inam sure you know that it is not just him. It was both of you. What happend happend and now it is past. We can't do anything about what is gone. What lies ahead is your future. How would you now want to move ahead. Focus on your plan for your future. Always remember that you are in charge of your life. Many times we get influenced by stories and movies and keep building our emotions around them. Think about the other circumstances as well. What would have happend if you had a baby. Are you ready to deal with all that would have come with it? you might be depressed thinking and feeling other things. Always remember that your life and your happiness is your choice. Focus on how to build happy and fulfilling life ahead. Start doing some kind of physical exercise do 30 to 40 minutes 4to 5 times in a week. Doing mindfulness meditation for 10 minutes to begin with would help you build resilience that will help you manage your stress in a much better way. Engage yourself in some activities yiu engage and focus more on building tomorrow than feeling guilty about yesterday. If you feel. That you need initial support to stop negative thought chain and begin positive change in your life feel free to contact me. As a psychologist I will work with you and provide you that initial support system till you once again become confident and independent. Hope this helps wishing you very best.

You need to relax- over thinking is not good. Learn to take things easy. Anxiety will definitely affect your sex life and marriage. Adopt a healthy routine- eat healthy, drink lots of water, exercise everyday for 45 mins to 1 hour. Spend time with family and friends. You should have positive thinking, be optimistic about things. Don't expect from people- the more you think in terms of that people should behave in these ways only, and the more you try to change others, more you will be stressed. Look at the positives in others and have faith in yourself.

Yes. Just follow up with your doctor regularly who will monitor you in pregnancy. They can see your medication and do regular ultrasounds to monitor the baby. Most women have completely normal pregnancies.

When I do study , my mind walk some other way. I can not do my 100% in my work. Can you please tell me what should I do?

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
CONCENTRATION TIPS Here’s some tips to get into a state of deep concentration where work / or studies flow easily so that you can do well in examinations/ and or do your work well. 1) Cut Off the Noise Getting into a state of concentration can take at least fifteen minutes. If you are getting distracted every five, you can’t possibly focus entirely on your work. Request that people don’t interrupt you when working on a big project. If you are required to answer phones and drop-in’s immediately, schedule work when the office is less busy. 2) Structure Your Environment The place you work can have an impact on your ability to focus. Try to locate yourself so you are facing potential distractions such as doors, phones or windows. This way you can take a glance to assess sounds that would otherwise break your focus. 3) Clarify Objectives Know what your goal is clearly before you start. If you aren’t sure what the end result is, the confusion will make it impossible to focus. 4) Divide Blobs . If you have a large project that needs work, clearly identify a path that you will use to get started working on it. If the sequence of actions isn’t obvious, it will be difficult to concentrate. Taking a few minutes to plan not only your end result, but the order you will complete any steps, can save hours in wasted thinking. 5) Know the Rules Get clear on what the guidelines are for the task ahead. What level of quality do you need? What standards do you need to follow? What constraints are there? If the rules aren’t clear from the outset, you will slip out of concentration as you ponder them later. 6) Set a Deadline Deadlines have both advantages and disadvantages when trying to force concentration. A deadline can make it easier to forget the non-essential and speed up your working time. If you give yourself only an hour to design a logo, you will keep it simple and avoid fiddling with extravagant designs. Time limits have disadvantages when they cause you to worry about the time you have left instead of the task itself. 7) Break down Roadblocks Roadblocks occur whenever you hit a tricky problem in your work. This can happen when you run out of ideas or your focus wavers. Break down roadblocks by brainstorming or planning on a piece of paper. Writing out your thought processes can keep you focused even if you might become frustrated. 8) Isolate Yourself Become a hermit and stay away from other people if you want to get work done. Unless your work is based on other people they will only break your focus. Create a private space and refuse to talk to anyone until your work is finished. Put a sign on your door to steer away drop-ins and don’t answer your phone. 9) Healthy Body, Sharper Mind What you put into your body affects the way you concentrate. Nobody would expect peak performance if they showed up drunk to work. But if you allow yourself to get chronic sleep deprivation, overuse stimulants like caffeine or eat dense, fatty foods your concentration will suffer. Try to cut out one of your unhealthy habits for just thirty days to see if there is a difference in your energy levels. I’ve found even small steps can create dramatic changes in my ability to focus. 10) Be Patient Before I write an article, I often sit at my desk for a fifteen or twenty minutes before I put finger on the keyboard. During this time I feel a strong urge to leave or do something else. But I know that if I am patient, I’ll stumble upon an idea to write about and enter a state of flow. Without a little patience, you can’t take advantage of flow when it rushed through you. If you need strong concentration I recommend periods of 90-120 minutes. Any less than that and you will waste too much time getting started before the flow can continue. More than this is possible to sustain focus, but you will probably benefit from a quick break. These are the general guidelines for concentration, studying well or doing your job. Regards.

I am not able to remember anything for long How can I developed my memory power What can I do to increase my mind power I am suffering from frustration I can't keep focus on my study.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Research-based strategies to boost your memory and keep it strong 7 Strategies for Remembering 1. Become interested in what you're learning. We're all better remembering what interests us. Few people, for example, have a difficult time remembering the names of people they find attractive. If you're not intrinsically interested in what you're learning or trying to remember, you must find a way to become so. 2. Find a way to leverage your visual memory. You'll be surprised by how much more this will enable you to remember. For example, imagine you're at a party and are introduced to five people in quick succession. How can you quickly memorize their names? Pick out a single defining visual characteristic of each person and connect it to a visual representation of their name, preferably through an action of some kind. Remember: Memory is predominantly visual. 3. Create a mental memory tree. If you're trying to memorize a large number of facts, find a way to relate them in your mind visually with a memory tree. Construct big branches first, then leaves. Branches and leaves should carry labels that are personally meaningful to you in some way, and the organization of the facts ("leaves") should be logical.. 4. Associate what you're trying to learn with what you already know. It seems the more mental connections we have to a piece of information, the more successful we'll be in remembering it. This is why using mnemonics. Write out the items to be memorized over and over and over. 5. When reading for retention, summarize each paragraph in the margin. This requires you to think about what you're reading, recycle it, and teach it to yourself again. Even take the concepts you're learning and reason forward with them; apply them to imagined novel situations, which creates more neural connections to reinforce the memory. 6. Do most of your studying in the afternoon. Though you may identify yourself as a "morning person" or "evening person" at least one Study. suggests your ability to memorize isn't influenced as much by what time of day you perceive yourself to be most alert but by the time of day you actually study—afternoon appearing to be the best. 7. Get adequate sleep to consolidate and retain memories. Not just at night after you've studied but the day, you study as well. Far better to do this than to stay up cramming all night for an exam.

My question is that I am very weak mind person and I want to be intelligent. So, what should I do.?

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
You must mention your age in a consultation and your job reason why think you are weak minded.Intelligence is genetically linked and cannot be modified by medicines .. But you can try mind stimulating games and learn relaxation techniques. For more doubts you ask me privately. Anyway take MENTAT tab 1-1-1 and see if it helps. Step by step: 1. Turn off as many distractions in your house as possible ? tv, computers, and even lights ( makes for a good reason to get out some candles) 2. Get into some comfortable clothes and boil a cup of your favourite hot tea 3. Sit in your favourite spot in your house with a nice window to look out. Get a nice pillow to sit cross legged on and drape a warm blanket over your shoulders. 4. Close your eyes, listen to your breath, notice how soft and fleshy your entire being is. 5. Do this for as long as possible up to a half hour ? a trance like relaxation should even occur 6. Take solace in knowing you can get back to your modern day goodies once this is over. You will also be a bit more healthier mentally.

Is smoking once a day harmful? I was a chain smoker 3 years back but now due to stress I feel like again starting it. So is it safe if I smoke only once a day?

Smoking once a day may not be as harmful, but it will still affect the lung tissues, still add up plaque formation in arteries. Funnily, it does not relieves stress, nicotine creates stress between two fags and then supposedly relieves it! take care.

Dear lybrate user. Welcome to lybrate. I can understand. Loosing someone near and dear is called grief and depression related to grief is pretty normal. But this sort of depression does not stay for long. This depression gets cleared within a span of some weeks. The best option for you is to undergo counseling and depression related therapy. Anyhow, there is nothing to worry. Most of the psychological problems can be cured with scientific therapy methods. Take care.
