Dear, you must be able to distinguish between mental disease and mental disorder. Your problem is a mental disorder. Not a mental disease. These mental disorders are usually treated with a combination of medicines and other means like awareness, meditation, psychotherapy techniques, life style changes etc. I think two or three counseling sessions and psycho therapy techniques should solve your problem. Let me know if you are willing to undergo counseling sessions and tailor made psycho therapy through mobile. Take care.

Don't worry about that thoughts. Don't think why they come. Just write down those thoughts when they comes and whatever they are. Just take a deep breath and start doing breathing exercise focus on your breathing only. Do it for 2 to 5 minutes. It will keep your mind relax and calm. Don't worry every thing will be fine.

Dear, memory and mind power consists of understanding, storage and recollection of information you learn. Understanding depends on concentration. The more creative you are on doing tasks or reading, the more you understand. Storage and recollection depends on your understanding and how well you review what you have learned. Repetition and review of material learned and other tasks provides easy recollection. You can improve your concentration and total brain power with the help of green leafy vegetables, exercise, creative activities, number puzzles like sudoku etc. Hard work is the key to learning and recollection. Take care.

Hi Vishnu, Since you are a medical student yourself, you are aware of the Sleep and wake cycle of your body. The only way to get your normal cycle back is by starting to sleep at the normal time and try and wake up at the normal time according to your schedule. The most important part in this will be stick to your schedule. It will take atleast a week for your body to get used to this new cycle but it will happen.

This is clearly an anxiety disorder. Treatment is possible and can be done in many different ways. Medicines alone, psychotherapy alone or a combination of both can be used. We routinely encounter clients with such problems at our center and treat them with good results. It will need some basic evaluation and difficult to suggest it in a brief text. You must consult an expert at the earliest in order to prevent yourself on missing out from many good things in life!

Break up means you learned good lesson. Do not do that mistake again. Take some gap of the relations. Better to maintain friendly relations with boys. Maintain distance with girls. Concentrate on your work. Better to spend most of the time with family members and friends. Dot be alone. Feel always comfortable. Do not feel and think about depression. Feel always I am ok. I have no problems. Think always in a positive manner, ok best wishes.

You just need to quit smoking because it is harmful even when you smoke one cigarette. Just because you do not have a problem as yet, it does not mean that smoking is alright. You are obviously functioning on a reactive mode i.e. you will stop only when you have a problem. At that time it will become too late and you may have a permanent problem and will be stuck with it for the rest of your life. Be proactive: anyway, if something is not good for you why do it in the first place? Just quit is my best advice​.

You may be under some stress, and I do not know if you are aware of it. Find out what this disturbance is all about and as you address it, memory and concentration will happily return to favor you. Do meet with a counselor, if your stress is too much. In the meantime please follow the suggested guidelines: Daily exercise of at least half an hour is a must. Even if you go to a gym, ask for aerobic and/or calisthenics 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 or coconut 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. Short-term memory is a faculty of the left brain, and long-term memory is a feature of the right brain. But you must have short term memory to convert it into long-term memory. So the emphasis must be in activating good short term memory, ideally and always. 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. If your home life is full of distractions and stress, it is likely to affect your memory, adversely. In that case, I suggest that you and the family go for counseling too.

I am not too clear about some aspects of your question. First of all, this is not a compatible marriage due to the age difference and that this'kid' is still a minor and this whole matter is illegal. Just because no one else will marry you it does not mean that you should sleep with anyone who is there. It is also not true that no one will marry you: there are plenty of people around who will marry you. It is pure superstition and irrational conclusions. If you are pregnant, you can have the child and even if it is out-of-wedlock, and even after that you can get married to someone else but not to this boy. He is already setting terms and conditions without even being matured. At any cost, you must get out of this arrangement, whatever people say and think. This is illegal and grossly inappropriate. At least you should be sensible about all this although already you have not acted sensibly while allowing sexual contact.

Dear, confidence comes from experience. Level of confidence is different for different things or tasks in life. To improve your confidence you need to undergo confidence building therapy. I think two or more counseling sessions and therapy should be good for you. Please let me know if you are willing for telephone counseling sessions. Take care.

Dear lybrate-user, Welcome to Lybrate. Alcohol and nicotine addiction also comes under abuse and addiction. If you’re ready to stop the substance and willing to get the support you need, you can recover from addiction and abuse —no matter how bad the addiction or how powerless you feel. The first step in treating addiction is accepting that you have a problem. Confronting an addiction and accepting responsibility for your actions isn’t easy. But it’s a necessary step on the road to treatment and recovery. You should then consult a psychiatrist / psychologist who fill follow this treatment. 1. Detoxification using medicines. 2. Behavior modification with the help of therapies. 3. Counseling. 4. Medication to sustain and 5. Long term support. These given steps are essential for any addict to get effectively rid of addiction. Therefore, you need to stick to the treatment plan. Take care.
