Hi doctor, I'm very fearful while picking up the client call and strange people around me. My voice tremble like anything. Though, I know the answer to the client call, I couldn't explain to them comfortably. I feel ashamed when I finished call as I had a bad call. And, when strangers aren't around, my confident and way of speaking is really good. I'm not sure where this fear goes. Please help me. This is my career related issue and I have to come out of this problem. Currently, I'm taking medicines for hand tremor Betacap TR 40, Benfomet plus and Lonazep 0.25 which is suggested by neurologist. Please advise.

You are just afraid of people and their judgments of you. This is closely related to the fear of public speaking, which everyone has, including me. But you will not notice it because we use the fear t prepare and deliver the talk properly. You can imagine that nobody is there and just speak naturally. You are obviously good but have a low self-confidence and esteem. It is all about trusting people. Do you know why you do not trust people? Have you had a bad experience? If not, you will still need to meet people and live with them. The ultimate test of a personality is in the social context. The greater test is when we meet with the opposite sex. And the final test is when we have to bed and board with a member of the opposite sex in marriage. If you wait for that time to resolve it, it might be too late and traumatizing. Even if you are afraid of people, face your fear and see what happens. They are certainly not going to kill you. So what is the worst that can happen? Really nothing but it will feel great to have friends and lots of companions in life. We are after all social animals, gregarious by nature and need each other. So don’t handicap yourself on this front. Attend a personality development class, personal grooming class, public speaking class, and conversation classes. It will help to do a lot of this with a close friend, if you have one. If not, find one. We are into relationships all the time. It is near impossible to live without people. All research has shown that living with someone gives us good health and long life too.

After delivery she is getting angry very much she is treating people like enemies particularly those who she don't like is there any solution for this.

Hi, I suspect postpartum psychosis. After delivery Postpartum psychosis (or puerperal psychosis) is a term that covers a group of mental illnesses with the sudden onset of psychotic symptoms following childbirth. A typical example is for a woman to become irritable, have extreme mood swings and hallucinations, and possibly need psychiatric hospitalization. She may be having paranoia and doubting on her own family members that they are against her, conspiring. It can be depression too. Please see a psychiatrist in Mumbai immediately. consult for any help.

Which is the best thing to increase anxiety while studying to recall & revise fast and if one avoid sugar completely should he take caffeine in place of it or sugar is necessary.

Mr. Lybrate-user, best method for increasing memory is to learn a technique of visualisation, where you visulise the page or paragraph that has been read or studied, that is create a mental picture in front of your closed eyes, and memorise it. There is a book written by one Mr. Silva - silva mind control techniques/ or methods. Search for it and follow. That should help. Caffeine increases alertness for a few minutes to an hour or two. But it is followed by a feeling of dullness. Repeated use is not advised. Thanks for the question.

Dear lybrate user. Anger and aggression are emotions. Anger comes when you become irritated. Irritation happens when you don't like something, or when something is repeated. As anger is an emotion, it should be vent out. You should be able to throw anger out instead of controlling it. But more perfect will be, know the frustrating situations and stop being emotional. If practiced properly, you will not get irritated at those circumstances at all. Those techniques are much easier to understand. I suggest anger management therapy. Take care.

You could be under some form of stress. If you meet with a counselor and get that taken care of a lot of hair fall may diminish. Anyway, everyone one of us will lose hair to the extent of 75-100 per day, whether we like it or not. They are however also constantly replaced as you keep growing. There are however some bad habits that we do as youngsters that may increase hair fall: like combing your hair too often, pulling at your hair too strongly, shampooing everyday especially with strong and highly chemically based shampoos, improper diet, stress, not massaging your scalp (you need to gently do circular massage with your finger-tips everyday to strengthen the roots), is natural cleansers like shikkakai powder, liquids etc. Less exposure to direct sunlight, less use of hairsprays, hair gels, styling creams, and so on. You could also have a genetic factor inherited from your parents that will cause excess hair fall and baldness. You must also exercise regularly, sleep adequately, and eat well from the list below of good food for prevention: carrots, prunes, green peas, oats, shrimp, walnuts, eggs, chicken, low-fat dairy products, spinach, sweet potatoes, lentils, strawberry, oranges, papaya, blueberries, lime, kiwi fruit, mango, melon, broccoli, winter squash apricots, green and red peppers, millet, barley, wheat, cucumber, rice, bean sprouts, asparagus, black sesame seeds, garlic, cabbage, onions, turnips, lettuce, brussels sprouts, kale, seaweed, dry fruits, liver, salmon, tuna and oysters. Wow, that is indeed a good and exhaustive list.

Dear lybrate-user, try this method many people are success first and most sleep early wake up early at 4.0 am and study with fresh mind, of course subjects which you are not interested you must spend more time and repeat it many times" practice makes perfect" not only human including pets.. Switch off mobile phone when you go to bed and switch it on at 6am. Example some people they don't like mathematics but it is essential for life everyday and every time we are depended on mathematics, right from doctor to business man, including vegetable seller, we can understand many other distraction disturbed minds it is like love issues. Still not able to concentrate go for counselling

I am married for 15 years, having 13 years son. Living with my in laws. My in laws are very much abusive and intervene in every matter of us. My husband never supports me and never stop his parents to doing so. He is kind of mumma's boy. Each time after a big fight, my in laws used to go to their elder son's house, but again after few months my husband bring them back to our place and again the same things starts happening. Whenever his parents are not living with him, he doesn't live like a husband or a dad. As and when his parents are with us, at the same time he wants me to happy.

It not good for you all to stay together in the same house for long for various reasons. If these in-laws are unwell and need for you to take care of them, I can understand. But if they are staying with you for convenience's sake, then it will cause you all inconvenience unnecessarily. If you can put your foot down and really make it difficult for this arrangement to go on, then maybe your hubby will find it better to let them stay in the elder brother's house. Even that is not fair to them but if they have been housing them before, they may be able to handle it better. But if he is'momma's boy' you could get some reaction from your husband that may worsen the situation. Then you have a choice between the lesser of two evils. Their presence in the house may be spoiling him and letting him act less responsibly. You know there is a good trick to employ with him but you need to have the parents out of the house to make this work. There is a little bit of mothering and fathering that goes on between husbands and wives. I am sure that if you mother him a little excessively (obviously in their absence), you could make him dependent on you instead of his mother and gradually make him lean on you for those needs and'steal' him from her! this has to be done very subtly. You may also meet with a counselor and see how it works with support from a professional and get things under control. You could also have a sensible talk with him about these problems and see if he is willing to forego his parents for the welfare of the family. Do not leave any stone unturned in your endeavours to pursue this matter until you succeed. Your request is very reasonable and so other people, other than family, will always support you.

Hello lybrate user. You have not mentioned about the issues for which you get tensed easily. But in general at your age there is a lot of performance pressure and expectations which may build stress if not handled appropriately. You may need to work on some of your coping skills so as to deal with difficult situations. You may get in touch to learn a few. All the best.

Pregnancy is a physiological process and not a pathology (disease) we have put lots of what is to be done and what not, which is only creating hindrances in a natural process. Trust you body's intelligence. Birthing in animals is a such a smooth process, body takes care of everything. Ovarian cyst is not very uncommon. Just follow your gynaec's advice and enjoy this rare change, which will bring so much of joy to you. Remember fear and stress only harms the baby inside. Take a counseling session if you must. Relax.

Our mind is basically a chatter box, even when wr are sleeping there are thoughts, usually in the form of dreams. Since you are already on anti anxiety drugs, you need to go in for systematic psychotherapy. The disturing thought patterns are usually negative and self defeating. They make you increasingly anxious, nervous and affect your eating and sleeping patterns. You will have to look into your thoughts and challenge them, for example - everytime you have a negative thought regarding your ability to do something, ask yourself - how do you know? a trained psychologist can better help you practise this and get rid of your sleeping difficulty. Indulge in physical activities like exercise or sports. Drink a lot of water. Both these things relieve physical stress, and help reduce emotional stress. Also, yoga and meditation can help.
