Dear lybrate user, welcome to lybrate. You must be able to understand concentration, attention span, recollection and distraction. If you are able to watch a movie for two hours continuously, if you are able to play a game for an hour, then you do not have any concentration problems. You can't be attentive towards your studies because you are not interested in it. You are able to watch movie and play game because you are interested in it. Human cannot be attentive towards anything for more than 10 minutes. If the task is boring, it is natural that that person will sleep or feel sleepy. Then you should study in such a way that your attention is continued and make the subjects are interesting to you. Effective learning techniques should help you. Recollection depends on anxiety, stress and other physical and circumstantial factors. Distractions while studying are plentiful. You should be able to overcome distractions or avoid distractions. Please understand the above. Change your study style and attitude accordingly. Please search internet for" effective learning" techniques. Take care.

Hi, thanks for writing in, welcome to the forum. Phases of preparation like this are stressful to most people. Some people are able to handle while others may not be able to. While most people would experience stress to some extent atleast, some will develop an anxiety or depressive disorder under these circumstances. Superficially at least, it appears that something of this sort is happening with you. I think it may be better for you to seek help because this kind of state of mind will prevent you from properly preparing as well; poor results will further fuel your anxiety and create a vicious cycle. With treatment your anxiety will reduce, you will be able to concentrate and remember better and, even though you will still have the hurdle of exam to clear, it will appear much less intimidating. I hope you get better soon. Take care!

Hi, I am sorry to say there are no proved medicines for stammering but practicing fluent talking methods like speaking slow and monitoring your stammering. You need to be patient and practice the guidelines given by your speech pathologist. You may do the following: 1. Speaking slow (not low volume but less speed) 2. Reading slow (not low volume but less speed) thanks.

Don't feel depressed. It's nature of every human being that some one or some thing is very important for us we don't want to lose it. And if we lose it we all feel depressed. It will take some time to come out of it. Be positive keep calm your self and keep busy your self in some of your favroute activities.

Hi my age is 20 and I am a college student. About a month ago I had severe panic attack during my flu and had to be rushed to the hospital. I was having shortness of breath with fever and other flu symptoms. We thought that it was an asthma attack or I was having some problem in my lungs since I was a regular smoker. However after few days all my reports were normal and I was released from the hospital. After a week I had the same thing and again I thought that I would just die. I was again rushed to the hospitals and this time they gave me shots of antibiotics and deriphyllin with some antacids. However after a few days when again my reports were normal I was suggested a psychiatrist and he diagnosed that I was suffering from anxiety disorder. I did not have any type of anxiety or panic before in my life so I refused to take the meds and decided that I will fight this on my own. One thing I observed that after eating full stomach I wud get severe episodes of panic or anxiety. Then I came back home and I was not better at all so I did a bit of my own research and found that when histamine increases in your body you can get anxiety attacks so I bought a cetrizine pill from the nearby drug store and ate it, I was feeling a hell lot of better the other day! so I told this to my doc and he prescribed me cetrizine for another 15 days. I also had blocked or stuffy nose so I was given levocitrazin hydrochloride and I had a weird tightness in my throat for which I was given some kind of gastric medicine. Those pills worked like magic all my anxiety gone I was feeling way better and started going out again. A mistake I did maybe that I started smoking again but very less like one cigarette when my friends were with me. I again caught cold without any fever and my anxiety was back. The cetrizine pills stopped working I am again having itchy skin however sneezing and itchy eyes are not happening and again my stomach is creating hell lot of acid and days and nights have become like hell for me. I can not eat because I get too much anxious or panicked after eating and my BP is too low. nausea DIZZINESS lightheadedness STUFFY NOSE AND CHOKING THROAT WITH ANXIETY AND SKIN ITCHING have become my day to day symptoms. I am not having fever. I am afraid to go out I do not have enough energy even to get my life straight. I am in a very bad place. I have given an allergy test whose reports are still to come. I also have ITCHY SCALP and sweat makes me itch more. I really need some advice. I do not even know which doctor to go to. I just want this misery to end.

Hi To overcome your anxiety, relax your mind. Don't think negatively. You have a negative assumption that after eating you will have panic attacks. Change your thinking. Think positively and give positive affirmations to yourself. Learn relaxation techniques and practice daily. Deep breathing will also help you. Develop good hobbies and engage yourself. Join yoga or pranayama classes. This gives you relief.

My wife age is 38, she is suffering from schizophrenia last four years but she does not take medication, she don't think that she is ill if we say that she is ill she become very aggressive what should we do? Please advice.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
She must somehow have the medication, if it has been prescribed. Some of the patients can be difficult about taking medication for fear of some unfounded reasons: the dull feeling, the weight gain, the low energy, etc., which are some of the drug reactions. There are medicines to counter these drug effects and if she is convinced she may cooperate. If you can talk and reason out the facts with her then she might be convinced more readily. If not she can be taken back to the doctor who diagnosed her and let him do the explaining. The other alternative is to talk to her doctor and see if s/he is willing to give some medication which can be slipped into her food or drink without her knowledge. In the worst case scenario she can be told that she will be admitted into the hospital or institution, if she does not cooperate. But you must be very careful that she does not do something drastic out of the fear of force being used. So you will need to monitor her 24 hours for her safety. There are also long-acting injections for schizophrenia, which may be administered too but in the guise of treating some other problem. Do consult her doctor to see if s/he has any other ingenious approach.

Good Morning ~ It appears to me that you have always had suspicious about your wife and so that has been confirmed now with your keeping a secret camera. You found that your wife was having sex with another man and you are upset about it. I am sure you want to do something about it. That something is very important and it can make of break your marriage. If you have kids it is important that you make sure they do not suffer. In your history you have made sure that you mention that you are not sexually active and masturbate. This may not be a good idea. The wisest way to go about it is to show you wife the video you made and confront her with it. It may also work well to actually know what she thinks. If she has remorse and regrets the episode to the extent where she feels guilty then it may be a good idea to patch things up for your kids sake. It seems also that your physical health is being affected due to your wife's sexual excursions. I hope you seek the help of a psychiatrist. Look forward to hearing from you. If you need help with booking an appointment online with me on this website either text, audio or video appointment for confidential and private consultation you may do so by contacting the help desk of Lybrate.

I feel that if you went for counseling too a lot can be done and resolved. So apart from the medication you need the help of a counselor who will equip you with coping skills and techniques to handle the daily pressures in life. Relying only on the chemical intervention is grossly insufficient. By just popping in pills how do you hope to develop skills and tools to manage life?! You can follow these simple rules too: 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 scotching 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: find someone to love and to love you back. 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 everyday and learn to be contended 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.

Sir when I trying to say something I fell stammering I take suggestion by physiatristAnd also done speech therapy but my problem not solve. What should I do?

M.Phill
Psychologist, Chennai
Let your mind relax- anxiety or nervousness is one of the major causes of stammering. Through proper relaxation this problem can be easily solved. When you are requiired to speak up and make people listen to what you have to say, give yourself a few minutes to clear your mind. It doesn't matter how long it takes to clear your mind. Once the mind has already reached the optimum state of relaxation, next step is to think positive thoughts. Think only positive thoughts and do not worry that you are going to stutter. This in itself is a great cure which will give you an inner confidence whenever you need to communicate. Think about someone you feel comfortable talking with. Start talking softly. Visualize thoughts and word. Read out loud. Slow down your speed of speech. Do relaxation and breathing exercises.

I will start it from beginning, In my teenage there was a stress and tension in my life for very long time and that was serious stress and tension, I do not know can I call that depression or not. Only doctors can say but that was long time of stress, Tension,disappointment ,inferiority complex and that situation of my life made me anxious and abnormally very aggressive and violent. However I got out from that situation and tension to some extent not totally. I faced very very weird type mental tension at very young age, At 16, 17,18. however I got out from that tension to some extent not totally, I turned 19, And left my little home town for studies in bangalore, There in bangalore I was happy to be there, New friends, New environment and big city bangalore. I was thinking of enjoy all this, although I was anxious but not that much. I felt anxiety and nervousness in social situations in college and hostels but that was under my control I was able to enjoy things. New life, I started smoking and drinking with my new friends and became heavy chain smoker, After some month I started feeling very very strong anxiety and social phobia. I stopped going college meeting friends other than room mates. I developed social anxiety disorder, GAD, Bipolar and many more, My life became hell. But that time I did not know that I am having a mental disorder, I did not understand why I became like this, I never think of going to doctor for any mental problem. I thought log kya kahenge ki kya mai pagal ho gaya hu. My life stopped, Study ruined, Very few friends, No girl friend very poor life with lots of expectations from life. I could do anything. I lost everything studies, Girls I loved, Money,Very precious time of life. But I did not share about my mental disorders with anyone. But some of my friends had doubt of my metal health. After struggling this kind of hellish life for seven years I thought of going to an Ayurveda doctor for this mental disorder, I thought herbal Ayurveda treatment would be good for mental disorders. I was benefited by Ayurveda medicines. I thought of quitting smoking so that I can adopt healthy lifestyle so that medicines would be more effective. After more than six months of taking medicine I realized that I did not need any medicine I just need to quit smoking drinking and a healthy lifestyle. All my friends smoke and drink but they are mentally healthy at all. I never thought smoking will cause me that much serious mental disorders. I quit it more than year ago. Now I am facing thing BRAIN FOG. It feels something opposite state of anxiety and it just refused to go. I think anti anxiety ayurvedic medicines caused me something like brain fog and it just refused to go. I think it is opposite state of anxiety so I again started cigarette and 8 Cups coffee in a day so that I can get rid of this brain fog and it seems like its working after lots of coffee I felt it going. I have lost my love I lost Everything in my life because I was mentally ill everybody was enjoying life and I was hiding in a room, Extreme extreme extreme level of social phobia. I think of suicide everyday. My life on chaos. Now I just want to know how to end this brain fog and how stay mentally healthy at all. Please suggest me right way.

Hi lybrate-user, First stop worrying. You should be courageous and bold enough to control your mind. This is not that serious. You should have overcome this problem during childhood, itself but you would not have known ways as you were very young. Look why you want to think about suicide. Look you should be strong to carry out ways to overcome this problem. Nature has many resources for you to divert and overcome this problem. BE BOLD why are you scared. First you should take steps to become normal. You should consult Psychiatrist for medicines that would help you and Psychologist who would help you to control your mind psychologically through various therapies and counselling. If you feel free to contact me either through text chat or call me. You are most welcome to come in for an online consultation so that I could help you overcome this problem provided you should take medicines prescribed by Psychiatrist. For this kind of problem yes you do have many ways to solve, then why thinking about suicide. Never give up to overcome this problem. Do not worry. Be cool. With regards,
