I am 26 years old. I dont know why I cannot adjust properly at some places. Many times it has happened that people say that I need to consult a psychiatrist. They say that I am disturbed. But there are many who have never told me these things. Consulting a psychologist costs much and I don't want to take unnecessary medicines.

Hii Lybrate-userthanks for sharing your problem. If its possible ,share your problem with your parents and then that they can break the communication barrier between you and your husband. And when still problem continues then you must focus on yourself. There are many shades in life and ups and downs are its part but I think we should live in present and live every second of life and make some goal for future. Make any good friend and share everything it will help you lot, try for job as it will make you busy and you will interact with people there make your routine such that you don't get free time to think, I understand this is really tough time for you but you cannot run away from the situation you have to face it .just think only about yourself do whatever you want to do.

Am a be final year student, nowadays am not able to concentrate on my studies, so please provide me some tips to concentrate on studies.

DHMS (Diploma in Homeopathic Medicine and Surgery)
Homeopath, Ludhiana
Homoeopathic medicine----------------------- BRENUP (ALLEN) Drink 2 spoon twice daily----------------------------------- Just make up a routine and a balance between your studies and entertainment. Study time means only studies and nothing else in your mind. Most of the successful people reached great heights just due to their fixed schedule and not by becoming a book worm. So be focused and start a new era in your life as the easiest way to taste success in life is only through studies----------------So whenever you study, study with full concentration and don’t let other activities like Friends, girls, masturbation, Facebook, Whatsapp, Mobile etc engulf your mind as it is a problem of most of you in your age and you people give it the name lack of Concentration---------Friends are always for the time being and if you want to continue relationship with some of your good friends life long then always think and act one step ahead of them as once in your life you taste failure, all your so called friends will be gone-------Always keep one thing in mind that this World is for rising stars and when you are rising, your all odds will be accepted but once you are a failure, your good deeds will be ignored-----------------So to become a rising star, you must study hard, just think that there is not any word like Lack of Concentration and positively you will have to work hard and succeed in life, no other motive right now, just keep focus on the target that you have decided for urelf----------------Best of luck--------

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. This happens because you are irritated ln seeing that girl. This also means you had several bad experiences with that girl. Why don't you shift to anothed room? this problem will constantly present itself unless you distance yourself from that or change the attitude. I suggest psychological counselling. Take care.

Dear lybrate-user, bilirubin level gives reading for total bilirubin, direct bilirubin and indirect bilirubin. It is not a drug to have side effect. If you want to know how much your alcohol has spoilt your liver, please give me ggt, sgot and sgpt levels in lft and also mcv in hemogram. If you come on private consultation, I can give you 10 questions on audit scale to find out your chances of becoming dependent on alcohol at the cost of your liver.

Dear Lybrate user. In many of the cases Stammering has two important reasons. Vocal chord misalignment or other problems are the primary reason. For this vocal chord complaint, you should consult an ENT specialist and get it corrected. Second reason is purely psychological. Stammer therapy can help you in psychological reasons. Take care.

I am not able to concentrate on my education. When I sit for studying, I have started thinking on other matters. What should I do for better concentration?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Your distracted mind is playing havoc: there is a reason for that though.I firmly suspect that the adolescent issues with regard to hormones may be affecting your ability to concentrate and remember. When the hormones play up, it lasts for a period of close to two years and during that time you could be influenced by three signs directly impacted by the chemical: you will tend to become aggressive and rebellious, you will become sexually active, and you will have acne and pimple problems. The hormonal imbalances may not only impact your memory because of the chemical but also bring some 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 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. 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. 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. Avoid sugar and junk food.

Understanding Autism.


Autism is a complex neurodevelopmental disorder that affects 1-2 people out of every 1,000 people worldwide. It is a wide spectrum disorder, so no two people with autism will have the exact same symptoms. There are those who function easily, those who are impaired and struggle to live normally and then there are others in between. Difficulties in communicating, social impairment and repetitive patterns of behaviour are some of the major symptoms that characterise autism and the related autism spectrum disorders (ASD).


Read the following articles to gain a better understanding of this condition:


Diagnosing Autism

In order to create awareness and combat this problem, early diagnosis and social acceptance is necessary. Here's a brief on what we can do to recognise autism.

 

Decoding the Symptoms of Autism

Although there is no scientific cure for autism, its symptoms can be worked upon with the help of a communication or behavioural therapist. 

 

Treatments for Autism

In this article, we chalk out the main treatments and therapies for curing autism in children and adolescents.

 

In conclusion, it’s important to treat these conditions not as disorders but to accept them as differences. Accept them in the same way we accept people of all races. These conditions are not caused by any disease or injury but because of genetics andenvironmental factors. Science suggests that neurological diversity has helped humans throughout their evolution to survive in the environment. It’s possible that those affected might just come up with solutions for problems that might escape those with normal brain wiring. Not because they’re necessarily smarter, or better, but because they think differently.  So it’s necessary to accept, respect and accommodate those with such conditions.  To care, not repair is the outlook we should have for the betterment of mankind.

Dear lybrate-user, I would like you to read about fetishism, in psychology, a form of sexual deviance involving erotic attachment to an inanimate object or an ordinarily asexual part of the human body. Fetishism as a mental condition may be defined as the necessity to use a non-genital object in order to achieve sexual gratification. The affected person has created a strong association between an object and sexual pleasure or gratification. The object may be some other body part, an article of clothing, or, less frequently, some more impersonal object. A person with a fetish often spends significant amounts of time thinking about the object of the fetish. Further, the object is intimately related to sexual pleasure or gratification. In the extreme, the presence of the fetish object is required for sexual release and gratification. The person with fetishism frequently masturbates while holding, rubbing, or smelling the fetish object or may ask the sexual partner to wear the object during their sexual encounters. Usually the fetish is required or strongly preferred for sexual excitement, and in its absence there may be erectile dysfunction in males. The condition occurs almost exclusively among men, and most of the objects used relate to the female body or female clothing. The articles of clothing most commonly used are shoes and items of female underclothes. Olfactory sensations are also frequently important. For some people with a paraphilia such as fetishism, paraphilic fantasies or stimuli may be necessary for erotic arousal and are always included in sexual activity, or the presence of the fetish object may occur only episodically. For example, the fetish object may only be necessary for arousal during periods of stress, and at other times, the person is able to function sexually without the fetish or stimuli related to the fetish. If you have any further query, feel free to contact.

How to increase concentration power, as I can not concentrate more than 2 minutes.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You are probably under some form of stress. The migraine headaches indicate that as well as that there could be reasons for the stress to stem from unexpressed anger. Are you aware of any such feeling pending expression in your life when you look back to even childhood? You could discuss these matters with a counselor and see if together you can both identify the reasons for the stress. Apart from that you can do some of the following to improve memory and concentration. Although concentration is different to memory, they can affect each other. 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.

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, broccoli, blueberries, fish, coconut oil, wheat sprouts, tomatoes, sunflower seeds, eat dark chocolate, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. 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.

Hello sir, I have too much stress. What should I do for relief? Please tell me.
Dear, Stress is simply a reaction to a stimulus that disturbs our physical or mental equilibrium. In other words, it's an omnipresent part of life. A stressful event can trigger the “fight-or-flight” response, causing hormones such as adrenaline and cortisol to surge through the body. A little bit of stress, known as “acute stress,” can be exciting—it keeps us active and alert. But long-term, or “chronic stress,” can have detrimental effects on health. You may not be able to control the stressors in your world, but you can alter your reaction to them. I need to know, what are the causes with which you are stressed? Once you know the reason, you will be able to adjust with it with some psycho therapy methods. Please let me know the details. Take care.

You have to meet with a doctor who will prescribe disulfiram and if he takes even cough syrup which has a little alcohol, he can suffer some adverse reactions. So he has to be warned and he has to be sure to take the medicine.
