You are perhaps suffering from a condition called as phobia which basically means that you are uncomfortable visiting public places. There can also be other undisclosed issues which needs to be discussed. However in the mean time you can continue using the same medicine and feel better. For long run I would recommend you that you also perhaps see a psychologist as they will able to help you with strategies to deal when faced with such situations. Hope this helps. Cheers.

How to remember biology fast. And how to concentrate on study. And how to do smart study.

Hello, There are few food which helps you in boosting up your memory power, increases focus & concentration, so try to take more of these: 1.Choline: Good sources of choline include liver, milk, eggs and peanuts. 2.Vitamin B: B vitamins are not synthesized in the body, and thus need to be obtained from food. B-complex vitamins are water-soluble vitamins, which means that they are not stored within the body. In consequence, the B vitamins need ongoing replenishment. Vitamin B1 (thiamine) rich sources include unrefined grain products, ready-to-eat cereals, meat (especially pork), dairy products, peanuts, legumes, fruits and eggs. Foods that contain high concentrations of vitamin B3 (niacin) in the free form include beans and organ meat, as well as enriched grain and cereal products. While niacin is present in corn and other grains, the bioavailability of the nutrient is much less than it is in protein-rich sources. The role of vitamin B9 (folic acid) during pregnancy is vital to normal development of the nervous system in the fetus. Good sources of folate include liver, ready-to-eat breakfast cereals, beans, asparagus, spinach, broccoli, and orange juice.Animal protein products are a good source of vitamin B12 (cobalamine), particularly organ meats such as kidney or liver. Other good sources are fish, eggs, and dairy products. 3.Vitamin A: The foods highest in Vitamin A are any pigmented fruits and vegetables and leafy green vegetables. 4.Zinc: Zinc is a very important part of the brain as well; many regions of the brain, such as the cerebellum, and hippocampus have neurons that contain this nutrient.Zinc is needed to maintain normal Vitamin A levels in blood plasma. Sources of zinc are meats, certain seafood, whole grains, baked beans, oatmeal, milk (low-fat), cashewnut, almonds, kidney-beans, cheese, peas, spinach, sesame seeds, pumpkin seeds, flaxseeds. Medication: Take homoeopathic medicine for increasing memory - Anacardium 200/ once daily.

Dear lybrate user. When people ruminate, they over-think or obsess about situations or life events, such as work or relationships. Research has shown that rumination is associated with a variety of negative consequences, including depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder, binge-drinking and binge-eating. I suggest you to force stop rumination. Engage in physical activities, outdoor games, entertainment etc. When in work try to provide some sort of break to yourself every half an hour. Take care.

Dear lybrate-user, You may be suffering from a Personality Disorder - may be borderline or emotionally unstable personality disorder. Please consult a psychiatrist or clinical psychologist for either diabolic or cognitive therapy. It may take many sessions over 6 - 9 months. It is worth. You are just 22 years. You need to settle in life, marriage, carrier etc. Let not your personality disturb your life, especially relationships too much.

4 Ways To Manage If Someone Is Suffering From Depression!

4 Ways To Manage If Someone Is Suffering From Depression!

Most mental and emotional health issues are inconspicuous in nature and, therefore, cause more harm than they otherwise should, most people still live with a number of symptoms of depression without even realizing it or do little to address it. When the depressive symptoms last for more than 2 weeks and affect the individual's personal, social or occupational life, it is known as clinical depression or major depression. There is often a delay in opting for the treatment because of the social taboo associated with depression.

Depression makes a person miserable, disappointed, restless or numb for long and tedious timeframes, and is debilitating, particularly when they can't demonstrate their feelings and worries to anybody. It can meddle with their productivity and can become a concern not only in workplaces, but also in social circles.

So here's how to deal with a friend or family member in a depressed state of mind:

  1. Be considerate: Do understand that depression doesn't mean" trouble". Melancholy is a condition with an assortment of side effects like exhaustion, confused mind state and rest issues. These are all side effects of melancholy. Crabbiness is an exceptionally basic side effect, which once in a while is encountered by many individuals, and can lead to an expanded sensitivity. Normally, it's difficult to be sympathetic with someone who is behaving grumpily. But you need to make a conscious effort to still see the positive in depressed individuals and lead them to hope.
  2. Encourage and support: Try not to shame people for being negative. Dejection changes the world into a scene of pessimism. Discouraged individuals don't just focus on the negatives, but they also disregard the positives.
  3. Do validate: Approval can help manage a depressed state, and can wean a friend or family member out of depression. Remember that someone with dejection is not living in the same universe as you. The laws that oversee your universe don't exist in theirs.Depressed individuals require your understanding, your empathy, and your affection, considerably more when they are having a troublesome day, week or month. It is hard, but possible. Discouraged individuals value a positive backing in particular.
  4. Never say 'you're too much': When someone with depression is told "you're too much" particularly by somebody near them, it can send them spiralling into blame and nervousness and bitterness. Being encouraging and empowering is likewise useful. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

My brain some time remain hang. I can't thik anything even my education hamper due this reason. What can I do?
Hello, The best way of increasing the concentration as well as releasing the mental stress/ tension is through exercises (sp. yoga and meditation) which increases your blood circulation, boosts up oxygen in each and every tissue of the body. Stress can make mental health problems worse. So, the another way by which you can help your body deal with stress by avoiding certain foods and eating a balanced diet. Things to avoid: Avoid or limit caffeine and "power drinks." Coffee, tea, some soda pop, and chocolate have caffeine. Caffeine causes you to feel "wound up," which can make stressful situations seem more intense. If you drink a lot of caffeine, reduce how much you drink gradually. If you stop drinking caffeine suddenly, you may have headaches and find it hard to focus. Power drinks, such as Red Bull, also have ingredients that keep you on edge. Don't skip meals or eat on the run. Skipping meals can make stress-related symptoms such as headaches or stomach tension worse. Use mealtimes to relax, enjoy the flavor of your food, and reflect on your day. Don't eat to relieve stress. This can lead to overeating and guilt. If you tend to do this, replace eating with other actions that relieve stress, such as taking a walk, playing with a pet, or taking a bath. Don't turn to alcohol if you feel stressed. Alcohol can make you feel worse and may change how well your medicines work. Try not to drink or drink only on special occasions. At these times limit yourself to 2 drinks if you're a man and 1 drink if you're a woman. Eat a balanced diet A balanced diet includes: Breads, cereals, pasta, and rice. Choose whole-grain breads, cold and cooked cereals and grains, pasta (without creamy sauces), hard rolls, or low-fat or fat-free crackers. Watch out for grain-based foods that have added fats and sugars, such as pastries, granola, snack crackers, and chips. These may cause weight gain or raise your cholesterol levels. Fruits and vegetables. Eat plenty of fruits and vegetables. They have little if any fat and lots of nutrients. Eat at least 2 cups of fruit and 2½ cups of vegetables every day. Meat and meat alternatives. Meat is a good source of protein. Choose fish and lean poultry instead of red meat and fried meats. Beans, tofu, and nuts are also good protein sources. Milk and milk products. Choose low-fat or fat-free products. If you have problems digesting milk, try eating cheese or yogurt instead, since these foods are low in lactose. Fats and oils. Limit fats and oils, including those you use in cooking. Choose oils that are liquid at room temperature (unsaturated fats), such as canola oil and olive oil. Avoid trans fats, which are found in margarines, crackers, cookies, and snack foods. Save sweets and high-fat snacks for special occasions. Nuts and seeds. Eating walnuts, almonds will no doubt increase your memory power! Also, includes seeds like sesame seeds, flaxseeds, sunflower seeds, etc. which are good sources of protein, omega-3 fatty acids and vitamin E. Water. Drink water when you are thirsty. For most people that means about 8 to 10 glasses of liquid a day. Medication: Take homoeopathic medicines - Bacopa Monierri Q/ 10 drops in 1/2 cup of water/ thrice daily and Kali Phos. 6x/ once at night. Take them for 20 days. Revert me back.

Dear lybrate-user. Masturbation is normal, natural and is never a health problem. You can safely masturbate thrice or four times in a week. Worrying creates anxiety. Stop worrying. Indulge in games and hobbies. Take care.

You must go and meet with a counselor immediately and if that person advises that you meet with a doctor you must do so and cooperate to your utmost. Please visit these professionals along with your parents. In the meantime please do the following sincerely because you could resolve the problem better with good cooperation: 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 scorching 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. Learn all about emotions and how to handle them and that will get you out of the depression rather easily and quickly. 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 every day and learn to be contented 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 calisthenic exercises with some form of counting, regularly. Whatever happens please cooperate with the therapy and do not discontinue until the condition is completely resolved.

I always imagine that I would be film star or a cricketer hitting only sixes in a stadiam and all are watching me. Sometimes I just imagine an extraordinary personality that I can never be in real life for showing my ability that is not in me really. People say that I smiles while walking on the road. I smiles really anywhere while imagining. Is it a mental disease? Am I going to be mad? Please help me.
