Consult a psychiatrist immediately. Suicidal ideas are a psychiatric emergency. You may be suffering from depression or any other psychological problem. Many good treatments are available currently and I strongly urge you to try them under expert supervision.

Shahbaaz,what I can say you only is that this is not end of the world.We have to come across many failures in life.Life is very harsh but a true human being is that who make these failures his power and makes history.Make her realise her mistake and this you can do by a pure mind and hard work.Dont have a grudge against her in mind and think that God has some other more important work for you.These failures always teach us and I am sure you must have got a lesson by this breakup.Place that lesson in your mind and move forward as if nothing had happened.Myself is a homoeopathic doctor and I will recommend you following homoeopathic medicine to take alongwith IGNATIA AMARA 1M ( Dr Reckeweg) Drink 5 drops every 3rd day P.L.30 (Dr Reckeweg) Ask the homoeopathic pharmacist to prepare this medicine in 30 number globules and quantity 2 drahm.Start taking 4 tab 3 times daily.

My wife is having Parkinsons. No trembling but stiffness in muscle, difficulty in walking, speech, writing. Taking treatment with syndopa 900 mg/daily for the past six years. What is your suggestion to get relief / improvement . Siddha, Ayurvedic, homeopathy or any alternate treatment is ok ?

DM - Neurology, MD - General Medicine, MBBS
Neurologist, Chennai
Syndopa is the best medicine available for Parkinson's disease. However the dosing and dosage interval should be individualized based on the need. Even improper dosing and dosage interval may produce poor control. Also there are many other drugs available which could helpful if added to Syndopa judiciously. There is a surgical procedure called DBS is available which can give better result in carefully selected patients.

You have yourself diagnosed your problem! when you give too much priority to someone else, it is at the expense of your own self--you are not getting it back as you would want or deserve from your friend. This means, you are giving more than what you are getting. So, definitely, it will hurt. Please, for your sake, raise our own position i. E. You come first and then your friend. Give in a relationship that much where it is equal or atleast returned. Protect yourself from hurt by giving less in such a relationship. You will feel relieved and much better. Create some space for self and focus on your career.

Sir, I want to quiet Smoking and drinking. Hardly once in a month I drink alcohol but at the age of 30 is that possible to quiet and will be any harm if I quiet.

Dear, Welcome to Lybrate. Smoking and drinking 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 and cooperate with your psychiatrist / psychologist. Take care.

Sleep is not a cure for stress although it may help in relieving it. You need to examine what is causing the stress and go after it to seek a resolution. When you do not express feelings you will land up with stress. Check what feelings you are not dealing with and then tackle that to find relief which is a permanent solution: sleep will give you temporary escape and will also give you the necessary rest from the day’s stress but it will never resolve it. In fact, you may feel fresher after good sleep to then take up the stressors of the next day. But to resolve it you need to deal with the unexpressed feelings which may have become a habit from childhood. Meet with a counselor and that person will help you process your feelings and find ways to express them once and for all and give you permanent relief. The rudeness is a sign that you are scared. so meeting a counselor is mandatory to your​ resolution.

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.

After 12th pass I am not anymore interested in studies what r the reasons behind this?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Whenever I start studying I feel sleepy and so I can not do my study well. What to do to get concentrated on studies? It is obvious that you are not interested in your studies because it may not be suitable to your aptitude. Please meet with a career guidance counselor and do some tests that will also determine what your natural skills are and then choose an appropriate career and course. It may also be that you have studied these topics already right through the year and find it very boring to do it all over again. You may be just sleep deprived! Perhaps you are not exercising enough everyday! Look into all of these matters and deal with it in an appropriate fashion. In fact every time you feel sleepy, just get up and do some jumping jacks and it will wake you up. If you are feeling sleepy, do some written work. In the worst case scenario, you may have some tea or coffee and that will perk you up. Never have too much carbohydrate meals before studying, it will make you drowsy. In terms of concentration here are a few 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. 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 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. 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 you and the family go for counseling too.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. This usually happens because f lack of self confidence and lack of self esteem. Lack of proper experience in the field also can cause these problems. You need to improve your attitude, self confidence and self esteem along with experience. I suggest online therapy to improve all these. Take care.

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. Your daughter needs counseling and anger management techniques. Take care.

Hello doctor, I want to consult regarding my 4 years old son. My kid is extremely naughty. I used to beat him whenever he used to do anything wrong or he didn't follow me. Today's situation is beating is not making any difference now. He actually turned rude and doesn't listen to others at all. I am worried with his such behavior. I have stopped beating him now. Now I try my level best to handle him calmly. I always try to be polite just to change his nature. But no results. He fights with his friends. Doesn't share his toys and other things. He doesn't listen to me at all. He just ignores whatever I say. He is just very rude with others. I do talk to him for making him realize that beating or fighting is bad. I play with him. I tell him bed time stories for making him feel that he should be a good child and should behave well With others. But no result. Pls suggest how to handle him.

Modify your stories, it should be indirect . The main character of the story should be a 4 yr old boy with similarities with him but not him. The moral of the story could be that it is mutual relationship in the world. Those who help get helped , make friends get more friends and the child in the end becomes happy & satisfied. You should purposely not give attention to him(ignore) when he is behaving improperly. He may not be sharing anything, give him time some kids take long to do that.He seems to have a certain personality, which is his genetic make-up. All the efforts should be passive/indirect or YOUR child takes it to his SELF(Strong sense of self/ego).

Dreams is one of the automatic defense mechanism that helps in ventilating our unfulfilled desires in our unconscious mind thereby acting as a stress buster. Do not worry about its effects till you feel that you have confusion between dreams and real life.
