Hello lybrate-user, if cricket is your passion and you feel happy playing and practising cricket then you shouldn't worry about anything. Immerse yourself in your passion, enjoy it and master it. You will experience a bliss in this process. Success, happiness, prosperity and friends will always be your partners if you are sincere about what you do. Don't worry about having or losing friends, those who value you will find a way to stay in touch and those you value, you'll find a way to communicate with them as and when you can. Take it easy. Good luck!

Hello , ocd is a difficult disorder to treat, but with proper treatment and behaviour therapy, you can experience significant relief, such that it will no longer affect your studying or day to day activities. Drugs like fluvoxamine need to be taken at an adequate dose for 6-12 weeks to see measurable results. You haven't mentioned the dose and duration of the drugs mentioned. Besides, if still there is inadequate relief, there are numerous augmentation medicines which can be given along with fluvoxamine. Take care. Consult privately for more help" stop obsessing" is a book that I would recommend to help you overcome ocd.

Don't try to board two boats at a time. If you enjoy smoking, continue to do the same but with a slight added attention. Whenever you are about to smoke, just be aware of the whole process, right from feeling it between your fingers-putting it between your lips with attention on tobacco smell- to lighting it and most importantly being aware of smoke entering your mouth and filling up your lungs, also see the picture of smoker's lung picture on the cigarette box at the same time!

Diabetes together with depression is a horrible combination in terms of energy. I am sure you may not have done this: work with a counselor too. S/he will guide you to work on several other related issues to help you walk through life and handle everyday routines very effectively. It is not enough to rely only on medication. In fact, this is the only condition where you are required to literally do the opposite of what you feel like doing. Depression makes you want to withdraw, lie down, sleep, become lethargic, slow down, make you too lazy to even think etc. So when I suggested doing the opposite, you will need to fight this disease. You must become active; stay upright during the daylight time; meet people; never sleep during the day, and 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, eat more of proteins and vegetables, attend Yoga classes etc. Watch a lot of 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. I hope you have someone to love and be loved too. Whatever happens please incorporate these three important adaptations in your life: always be responsible, be respectful, and be functional. If you did these three things lots of things will go well in life. Please pray and have faith in God to alleviate your sufferings too.

I want to write a book.
I want to lose weight.
I want to make more money.
I want to change the world.
I want to….

Most of us have a list of “I want to’s” but far fewer of us go any further than that.

Why?

It’s not because we can't, although sometimes we like to tell ourselves that.

It’s really because we don't want to bad enough.

“If it’s important you’ll find a way. If it’s not, you’ll find an excuse.”

It’s time to take inventory and decide.

Who do you want to become? What do you want to achieve?

There’s no better day than today to start turning those “I want to’s” into “to do’s.”

It might not be easy and it probably won't happen overnight but your life, your mission, whatever it is you were called to do is too important for you to settle. Don't keep putting it off. Don't keep wishing and dreaming. Start doing.

And, when you want to give up… read this again and keep going.

Every success comes at a price (time, effort, attention). You just need to be willing to pay it.

When we get older, some people experience memory loss while others have a very sharp memory still. You can avoid multi tasking too frequently. Learning to manage emotional stress like anxiety, anger and fear will also help to retain memory. Taking frequent breaks and relaxing is very important. Getting adequate deep sleep is of utmost importance. Physical and mental exercises which refresh the brain including yoga, deep breathing, meditation are of immense importance too.

Stammering is a speech disorder which affects your and personality. I can understand it has been giving you lot of anxiety and doubts. What you need is a therapist who can retrain the way you speak. As a start I would like you to read aloud as much as possible by taking each letter of a word at a time. L- e- t - t - e - r. Llllllllllll. Each word should extended as much as you can. This should continue for half an hour daily. Then you need to do relaxation exercises. After practicing this for one week. I will tell you next step.

Hello lybrate-user, there are no side effects of having limited physical contact with other people, physically or mentally. Having too much of a physical contact on the other hand can lead to many problems, both, physical and mental. So, focus over your studies and engage in some outdoor sports. Good luck.

Well you are not much older than a teenager right now and these feelings are okay for your age. The only problem is that you, cannot or rather should not, act on them. You have to learn to moderate these impulses and the more you worry about them the more difficult it will be for you to control your libido. However you cannot walk around with a high libido and a somewhat lost control. Indulging in it is what can cause bother. You must go out and socialize and meet more people and mix around with both sexes. In time you will be able to understand and respect girls and not see them as mere sex objects. You will also respect your sexual feeling and know that it has to be used responsibly. Right now vigorous games and sports will channelize a lot of this energy and reduce the urge. Your focus must be on your studies but not at the neglect of other aspects of our personality. If you like you could attend sex education classes and get a more refined idea of relationships with the opposite sex and relish a wholesome contact with them. Your view right now seems too telescopically directed towards their bodies due to the hormonal influences. There is so much more to do with your life at this current moment that this will distract you no end: time and opportunity can be permanently lost. You can have great times later on after achieving good development in your all round personality. Stay focused on the right priorities. You may feel like you have no control but that is all in your head and a primed body.

Dear lybrate-user. It is always better to leave smoking. Once you leave smoking, immediately, your body starts the repair procedure and within one year, the body will be completely restored. You have to provide enhancement in the form of never smoking again, physical exercises etc. Take care.

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 am in deeply depression since 8 months. I am staying single & unmarried. My family is depending on me only. My earnings are not much saving but I can handle any kind criticalities. I am the decision maker in my family. Now I am afraid to make decisions & take action on which happenings on my family. Present situation is that I am not able to concentrate to my personality development. I don't trust people much & I don't like to dependent on anyone. If I trust, I always try to be with them only and I can do anything for them (if not possible by me also). But they feel like bored & casually. I tried to avoid loneliness. I used to play chess most with online users. So that I get some relax for while but how can I play whole day? I also did whole day for some days. I did reading stories now I feel like these all stories I read already. I used to listening songs with high volumes but it seems like ear can damage. Now a days I am getting angry on everyone with small reasons. I feel that I wanna cry loudly, I wanna laugh bigger, I wanna shout very loud voice, I wanna fight. But I can not do these all things. I have respect in society & my office. I did not used at least rubbish language & I did not rude also. If I share my problems with anyone, they says me like its time to start drink, get married, get dating kind of, go for outings, and so many. I don't tried to make nonsense of myself because if anything goes wrong with me, the effect will be on my entire family. That's why I am so careful myself.

Mr. lybrate-user the complaints you have described clearly states that you are suffering from clinical depression. Unable to concentrate on work, not interested in previous pleasurable activities, feeling loneliness, irritability and crying spells all are classical symptoms of depression. Well stress, work environment, family pressure all can burden any individual. You at an young age are seeming to carry the burden of your whole family which is very much appreciable. My first advice to you is avoid using Internet and gadgets to make you better, they may worsen you in turn. Kindly don't use smoking and alcohol, particularly when depressed which can worsen you further. Try to be with friends and family. Spend time in places were people are engaged like malls and parks. Take a small break from the hectic schedule you are having. Maintain proper sleep pattern. Don't skip food. Practice exercises and yoga if possible, they are very essential to refresh ourselves. Love Yourself. Also kindly consult a psychiatrist for detailed evaluation and treatment. Be relaxed stay healthy.

Dear lybrate user, 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 ends up in negative territory. Over thinking leads to obsession, self talking and laziness. 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. Anyhow, there is nothing to worry. Most of the psychological problems can be cured with scientific therapy methods. Take care.
