I have realised lately that I have started having severe mood-swings. My behaviour has turned quite eccentric and I'm afraid it's affecting people around me. What should I do? Could it be bipolar?

It depends, consult a psychologist for detailed assessment. Psychologist can advise whether you need therapy or if its a disorder medication from psychiatrist. You need to explain symptoms in detail for accurate diagnosis and treatment.

Hello lybrate-user, i'm sorry for your loss. It could be that you might have not grieved your loved one's loss & still struggling to work around it. It would be beneficial if you meet a psychologist & address this concern so that you are guided in a proper way.

My husband is a chain smoker and he cannot control himself at all. What can I do about it? And he is also reluctant about going to rehab because of his busy schedule so what is the solution?

Dear, tobacco is addictive. Cigarette also contains 4000+ carcinogenic chemicals other than nicotine. The best method is to leave it and continue with your will power. There are other methods like nicotine replacement therapy and pharmacotherapy combined. But still you will need will power. You may consult a physician or deaddiction therapist or a rehabilitation facility for further advise. Take care.

Dear Lybrate user. I can understand. Everyone have fears. Everyone are afraid of one or other aspect in life. Your fear about riding bike came when you fell down twice from bike. That phobia will be vanished the more you try to ride a bike or when the time passes. Don't worry about the phobia much. I suggest online phobia therapy. Take care.

Psychologist, Palakkad
Dear , I can understand. You are just 25 and I just don' t see any impending problem to your memory. Please introspect. If you can recall the story of a popular movie you last seen, or if you can remember the names of your favorite friends, or if you can remember what you ate for yesterday' s break fast and dinner, possibly you do not have any memory problems. If you feel memory problems in your education, then the problem lies in your interest to the subject and the way you study. If you get bored while studying, naturally, you understand nothing, thereby no recollection. After going through the above two paragraphs, you please introspect, and come back if you still want to clarify something. Take care.

My body development is not regular and i am facing that my memory weak. please advice.?

My body development is not regular and i am facing that my memory weak. please advice.?
You will need to explain what you mean by? body development is not regular. If you think it has anything to do with memory, I will need to know what was irregular in the first place. Regarding memory you can do the following to develop it. 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.

She was all fine before 4 years suddenly this things have started when she was 26 yrs.

Schizophrenia in your sister s case is chronic, and requires life long (long term) medicines. Do not ever stop it without psychiatrist advise. The more you stop and symptoms recur there will be residual disability. If you take regular medicines like in hypertenison or diabetes, you can have good quality of life long term. All the best.

You are clearly under stress of some kind which you need to identify with a counselor. 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 callisthenic exercises with whatever else you are doing. A healthy body harbors a healthy mind.

Till now you have been studying these concepts at a very basic level, in class xi and xii you will be requires to study more in depth. If you are able to understand the concepts then what you really need to do next is practise a lot and revise often. That's the key to remembering your course content. Be very regular and test your understanding of a topic before moving on to the next topic. To increas your memory and brain power, you will need to take good care of your diet, exercise and sleep. Avoid all kinds of junk foods, have lots of fresh fruits, salads and drink a lot of water and other natural fluids like lime juice, nariyal pani and other homemade summer preparations. Make small achieveable targets every day and work in a systematic manner. Do not pile up your work, revise everyday. Avoid the use of electronic gadgets - mobiles, tabs, computer games etc. They are time wasters and tire you instead of refreshing you. For taking a break for relaxation either take a nap or exercise, dance or indulge in some music.

My wife is a patient of over angry. Really she is get hot talk very fast. Any solution.

BHMS
Homeopath, Faridabad
Hello, Your wife may be going through hard phase or going through some kind of stress or she may have so many responsibilities, so that she remains busy doing household work and don't get enough time to take care of self or else no one bothers about her and takes her for granted! You should interact with your wife to find out the cause. Most of the time, it's seen that among these common causes one of the cause is there. Practicing yoga with homoeopathic medication will help her in releasing the stress from your body. Brisk walk in a park will help her inhale more fresh air and oxygen for good functioning of the cells and tissues of the body. Medication: Give her homoeopathic - Schwabe’s Bacopa Monierri 1x/ thrice daily and Kali Phos. 6x/ once at night. Yogasana: Practice the following poses if she doesn’t has any other medical condition or pregnancy or else take an advice from your concern doctor and then only perform these. 1.Balasana: Sit on your heels with your big toes touching and hands resting on your thighs. Lower your belly and chest to rest between your knees, bringing your forehead to the floor. Relax your arms back beside your shins, palms facing up. Soften your breath by taking 5 to 10 long, deep inhalations and exhalations. 2.Savasana: lie back, letting your body sink into and open around the support. End in a supported pose on your back with a folded blanket under the length of the spine to help arch the upper and middle back, and lengthen the lower back. Move your arms a comfortable distance away from your body and anything else around you. Turn your palms to face up. Separate your legs a natural distance apart. Relax your feet and let them roll open. Finally, do a mental scan from head to toe: Where are you holding tension. Release it from every part of your body—including your heart and head. 3.Bhujanasana: Slowly slide forward from Child's Pose to lie facedown. Press your toes and forehead gently into the floor. Rest your palms lightly on the floor on either side of your chest with fingertips pointing forward and elbows bent and hugging in toward your ribcage. Inhale and lift your chest from the heart, pressing only very lightly into your palms and mostly using your back strength to hold your shoulders and chest up. Soften your shoulders. Then lift your hands off the floor completely, broadening across your collarbones and reaching your heart up. Take a couple of deep, slow breaths here. Then as you exhale, place your palms back down and gently lower your chest to floor.

I am having depression, sleeping in morning , always feels tired how can i overcome from this issues.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
This is the only condition were 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 scotching heat. I hope you can find someone to love and be loved too, if you are not already married. 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. If you are still not relieved from the depression, then go first to a counselor and later to a psychiatrist, if the counselor advises you.

Tumor is accumulation of cells. Tumors may affect the functioning of your body, especially when the size is increasing. Please consult a doctor at the earliest. For any disease, early treatment is half battle won. If your tumours are dangerous, the doctor will treat them, if they are not really dangerous, the doctor will suggest still some medication but most importantly you will be relieved of the stress once the diagnosis is done.

From the past month sometimes have a felling of suicide and sometimes I feel I should have a brain checkup. From the past month everything is like weird, I do not like to do the stuff I usually do the most when I'm sad or upset like listening songs, playing games, to find new ways of enjoyment, talking to friends, hanging out and some more such stuff. I think I have become emotionless I feel nothing means I do not get angry at any cost , I do not get sad even if some of my own family member or a close person hurts me a lot, I'm not even happy, I do not think this is due to hormonal changes, cause I had these hormonal fluctuations 2 years ago and I had no such reactions in the last year. I have tried to discuss these problems with my friends but no one had a solution which I could adopt for a change in my mind set. It is my humble request to you sir / ma'am please give the best solution so that I can overcome my mental problems. Thank you.

There is all likelihood that some unresolved childhood issue is cropping up for the last time seeking a resolution. If you or your parents know of anything that happened from your prenatal days till now, then take that information and consult with a counselor first. Suicidal tendencies may have very deep rooted life-threatening events that remained buried and is now surfacing. This is speculation and can only be verified by your parents. If all this is true, it then appears like you have touched upon an important matter to resolve. Otherwise, you may carry a permanent negative trait into adulthood and beyond and suffer unnecessary difficulties. See this as an eye-opener and an opportunity to sort out something that has long-term bearings.
