Dear lybrate user, I can imagine how sad, frustrated and hopeless you might be feeling presently. At the age of 25 if you have incurred loss, then that means you started you business at a very young age. And that shows that you are courageous. Unfortunately you have incurred loss, but that is part and parcel of having your own business. Do not get discouraged. Try to find out what went wrong. Make a note in your mind, not the repeat your mistake. Please understand that you are an engineer. Use your knowledge and skill to think about various options. Keep trying harder for job. At the same time, keep dreaming about having your own business again. Take calculated risks. Take some guidance from experienced people. We all go through ups and downs in life. Use your courage to bounce back. Remeber, life keeps changing constantly. These difficult days will pass. Keep trying harder till you succeed. You are only 25. There is whole life ahead of you. Take challeges head on. All the best.

Chewing chewable tablets may help faster absorption of the drug. There are chewable tabs which can be chewed but non chewable enteric coated tabs have to be swallowed as they should not come into contact with gastric acid and should directly reach intestines. Yu check your tables is enteric coated or film coated which can be chewed but bitter taste may be troublesome.

Hello lybrate user. Kindly consult a clinical psychologist for your aunt as along with medicines you need therapy/counseling too. These medicines have many side effects so it's important that through therapy you bring changes in the lifestyle of your aunt. Also take proper psychiatric help to know about the medicines. One should not change or remove medicines without proper consultation. Take care.

The proverbial exam fever is capable of causing a lot of stress. Stress is not a good indicator for studies. Because of your age you may have hormonal imbalances which may impact your memory because of the chemical but also the 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 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. 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 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 junk food.

Kindly consult a developmental pediatrician as soon as possible. It is not possible to give a proper diagnosis unless the child has been thoroughly evaluated. Please do not waste time and consult a doctor immediately. What ever the problem may be, it can be taken care of, only if the diagnosis is right.

I am becoming addicted to alcohol, what are the effects due to chronic abuse of alcohol?

Only strong will power, determination, attending AA meetings and diverting mind when tempted will help you stop alcohol Alcohol causes 7 types of cancer, including breast, mouth and bowel cancers. When you drink alcohol, cancer-causing chemicals are formed. Alcohol also affects hormone levels and makes cells even more likely to be damaged by smoking. The less alcohol you drink, the lower the risk of cancer. No type of alcohol is better or worse than another, it is the alcohol itself that leads to the damage, regardless of whether it is in wine, beer or spirits. And drinking and smoking together are even worse for you. Not everyone who drinks alcohol will develop cancer. But on the whole, scientists have found that some cancers are more common in people who drink more alcohol than others. Every year, alcohol causes 4% of cancers .Tips to cut down on alcohol. There are lots of simple ways to cut down on the amount of alcohol you drink. It can help to work out if there are particular times or situations when you tend to have a drink, whether that’s a bad day at work or a weekly pub quiz tradition, and plan what you’ll say and do differently next time. Have more alcohol-free days a week. For liver health it’s best to have at least 2 days off alcohol in a row each week. Try agreeing on certain days with your partner or a friend and help each other and stick to it. If you are planning to drink alcohol, decide on a limit in advance and make sure you don’t go over it. Swap every other alcoholic drink for a soft one – starting with your first drink. Try shandy instead of a pint of beer, or swap some wine for soda and have a spritzer. Don’t stock up on beer, wine or spirits at home. Finish one drink before pouring another, because topping up drinks makes it harder to keep track of how much you’ve had and when you planned to stop. Avoid buying drinks in rounds, that way you don’t have to keep pace with anyone. Tell a friend or partner that you’re cutting down on alcohol, they can support you – or even join you.

I would recommend you not to put pressure while urinating. Let the urine come out naturally. If some little amount of urine remains back in the bladder it is not an issue. Don't bother. The bladder has the capacity to store a lot of urine otherwise. If you strain while urinating you may cause other problems. If you are facing burning sensations or increased frequency. Please consult a urologist. Hope this answer has helped you in some way. Do let me know if you have any other queries.

There are way too many ways out of the situation and I believe that when in depression one looks so long at the door that is shut that they do not make an effort to open it or look at all the other doors that are options and thus the depression lingers. I would like you to speak with me in a one on one video or audio appointment as it would be an effective way to cope with your depression. Counseling may be one of the methods along with medications, however we can explore options if you make that small effort of booking an appointment. Take care and reach out!

Why my friend fears from god, she think the god punish him. Please tell the solution.

MS - Counselling and Psychotherapy, MPHIL

Devotion or bhakti as we call it, is based on love, not fear. Where there is love there is god. Tell your friend not to fear god but to love him. God will never punish only guide. Like the bhagavad gita tells us" lord krishna who is dwelling in everybody's heart, acts as a best wishing friend and purifies the devotee who constantly engages in hearing him" tell your friend that when she says she is scared of god, essentially she is scared of her own self, as god is within every one of us. She need not be afraid of her most trusted friend and guide. Ofcourse if your friend has any questions or wants to talk about this at length she can always talk to someone who is open to this discussion or consult a counsellor and seek help.
