This is a psychological problem. I have performed poorly in class 12 examinations. I am very much depressed about it. I know its my fault. My family life is complicated. I could not sleep at nights due to frustration but still I try to be strong and think positive and move forward in life. But the main problem is my parents are always torturing and bullying me whenever they are getting the chance. I have had mental breakdowns but still they will not understand. I cannot breathe freely. They are always harassing me. I have tried to make them understand my problems but they are not interested. I have no one to share my sorrows and griefs and day by day I am breaking down mentally. I just have no idea what to do. All my efforts to make my parents understand have failed. My self confidence is now down to negative values due to this onslaught of my parents. Please try to understand. I really tried everything I could.

Dear lybrate-user. Welcome to lybrate. You are disappointed, distressed and lack interest in life. I do not know much about your parents and their attitude and behavior. Therefore I cannot comment on them. I can talk to you. I think you should change your attitude. Suppose, you are getting employed and your boss is always harassing and bullying you, what will you do? apply that situation here. Change your attitude. Take care.

Hi, most importantly, meet him, sit down clarify whatever doubts you have whatever is making you uncomfortable. If he loves you he should comfort you and provide you the solution. You are planning your marriage with him 2 years is not a long time to know everything about each other. Please its advised to know and gather all information about him from all the sources and if all is positive marry him. Make sure this parents are aware about you. The behavior needs some modification, so sit down and talk about it. Tell him your expectations and ask him about his. Only when you are fully satisfied take this major step called marriage. Consult me for any doubts. All the best.

It is nice to be in a relationship. It is very exciting and thrilling as you try to build that relationship. Yes, one should be optimistic, and try to have a close relationship with trust. It looks like you have fallen in love for the first time, and you are excited about it and afraid of messing it up and loosing your love. Be calm. It is a two way affair. And the other person also should like you and love you. There relationship expects sustainability and keep growing. It should not be just liking external appearance, alertness, social and economic status. Even though physical attraction is also part of it but not the only attraction. Then there are chances of you yielding to temptaions and later might feel cheated, exploited, used and ditched. Go slow. You won't loose anything. Have faith in your self. Don't be afraid of loosing him for some other good looking lady. Try to understand him in a cool manner. Your dear of loosing him, will hasten you to become physical and into love making. You may feel this way you will be able to bind him. Don't be anxious and disappointed even if you loose in maintaining relationship. I am asking you not to jump to conclusions very fast. Hope I have not discouraged you. Be cautious. Wish you good luck. Haridas psychiatrist.

You must forgive for your own sake. The poison that is meant for the other is going to eat you up like a consumptive disease. Forgetting is trying to remove a memory which is, near impossible. However, if you express the emotions behind the memory it is possible to make the memory less powerful and therefore less harmful. You can also deal with that past in what is called Gestalt therapy and remove the pain of the past. Meet with a counselor and get the necessary help to enable this. 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 callisthenic exercises with some form of counting, regularly. Whatever happens please cooperate with the therapy and do not discontinue until the condition is completely resolved.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. You become emotional after speaking rudely to any person whether he is right or wrong. In my opinion there is nothing to worry. You are actual ideal human being with lot of sympathy and empathy. I suggest you to go ahead and be like this. You are bound to change in future, but keep your present trait intact. It will help you in future. Take care.

Sir, my grandfather has several illnesses, and other doctors told me that it is not curable. Im mot certain what the diseases are, but im going to describe some conditions about him. My grandfather is unable to move properly and always lies on the bed. He can barely walk. His speech is very slurred and needs extra effort to speak clearly. It has gotten to the point where we are unable to understand him. He also remains always idle. He never moves and stares at the ceiling. He also had alzheimer before showing these conditions, where he sometimes forgot smaller details spoken to him. He now never speaks, does not react to our voices, and other external stimuli. Could you please tell me what is going on? Thank you.

Hi, I think your granfather is old enough to have such problem. Actually, as you told he is not able to speak or react and even move, he has become tired of speaking, coz he is clear enough that whatever he speaks others want understand and react, but I think he can definitely see others around him so please if he knows to read then, kindly write in bold letters "your affection towards him "if you really love him. I can understand from the way you have expressed your grandfather's difficulty that you love and care more your grandfather. Do not worry, you are still young to understand what exactly happened to him. Each and everyone as we Grow older and older, our organs function slowly decreases and then finally stops functioning then, that is the end, but some stay healthy for long, the reason is some are strong, some are weak, some are hereditary problem, some are not. Many reasons matter, what to do we are not God to do some magic right. But at this time, I want you to express your love to your dear grandfather through actions, Do take care of him as long as possible, he will feel the comfort and warmth definitely from you all that is the happiness you can give him. Take Care. With regards,

General Physician,

Changing your behaviour – your physical work, lifestyle, and even your way of thinking -- are all natural depression treatments .these tips can help you feel better -- starting right now. 1. Get in a routine. If you’re depressed, you need a routine depression can strip away the structure from your life. One day melts into the next. Setting a gentle daily schedule can help you get back on track. 2. When you're depressed, you may feel like you can't accomplish anything. That makes you feel worse about yourself. To push back, set daily goals for yourself. "Start very small,” "Make your goal something that you can succeed at, like doing the dishes every other day." As you start to feel better, you can add more challenging daily goals. 3. Exercise- It temporarily boosts feel-good chemicals called endorphins. It may also have long-term benefits for people. Regular exercise seems to encourage the brain to rewire itself in positive ways. How much exercise do you need? You don’t need to run marathons to get a benefit. Just walking a few times a week can help. 4. Eat healthy. There is no magic / special; diet that corrects depression. It's a good idea to watch what you eat, though. If depression tends to make you overeat, getting in control of your eating will help you feel better. Although nothing is definitive, there’s evidence that foods with omega-3 fatty acids (such as fish) and folic acid (such as spinach) could help ease depression. 5. Get enough sleep. Depression can make it hard to get enough sleep and can make depression worse. What can you do? Start by making some changes to your lifestyle. Go to bed and get up at the same time every day. Try not to nap. Take all the distractions out of your bedroom -- no computer and no TV. In time, you may find your sleep improves. 6. Take on responsibilities. When you’re depressed, you may want to pull back from life and give up your responsibilities at home and at work. Staying involved and having daily responsibilities can work as a natural depression treatment. They ground you and give you a sense of accomplishment. If you're not up to full-time school or work, that’s fine. Think about part-time. If that seems like too much, consider volunteer work. 7. Challenge negative thoughts. In your fight against depression, a lot of the work is mental -- changing how you think. When you're depressed, you leap to the worst possible conclusions. You might feel like no one likes you, but is there real evidence for that? You might feel like the most worthless person on the planet, but is that really likely? It takes practice, but in time you can beat back those negative thoughts before they get out of control. 8. Check with your doctor before using supplements. "There's promising evidence for certain supplements for depression," Those include fish oil, folic acid. Always check with your doctor before starting any supplement, especially if you’re already taking medications 9. Do something new. When you’re depressed, you’re in a rut. Push yourself to do something different. Go to a museum. Pick up a used book and read it on a park bench. Volunteer at a soup kitchen. Take a language class. "When we challenge ourselves to do something different, there are chemical changes in the brain, "Trying something new alters the levels of [the brain chemical] dopamine, which is associated with pleasure, enjoyment, and learning." 10. Try to have fun. If you’re depressed, make time for things you enjoy. What if nothing seems fun anymore? "That's just a symptom of depression," You have to keep trying anyway. As strange as it might sound, you have to work at having fun. Plan things you used to enjoy, even if they feel like a chore. Keep going to the movies. Keep going out with friends for dinner. When you're depressed, you can lose the knack for enjoying life, you have to relearn how to do it. In time, fun things really will feel fun again. If these do not work for you can consult me on this site for medicine prescription

Dear lybrate-user, you are just 20. You will not face any withdrawal symptoms or health consequences on suddenly leaving smoking. Quitting addictive substances is not an easytask. You can go for deaddiction therapy. But according to me, the best method would be, you quit the habbit now itself. Sustain the quitting with the help of self motivation. I suggest counseling and psychotherapy. Please consult a psychologist. Take care.

I am the 22 years old guy, I have three disturbing problems which depressed me badly: An average student not able to bring good marks to proud my parents about myself, which make me sad and depressed as my parents investing money to my education. Secondly, since my father’s death I feel low about myself as what to do in future, I feel like sky is crashing on me, family pressure, the more I fight the more I shatters, for my father I did not do anything, thirdly I am in love with someone but she dnt loves me, I tried to show her but she dnt try to understand my feelings. She loves somebody else. First time I loved someone. I fight with her but she don’t understand my feelings. All these feelings strangles me and I can’t control them and these shatters me totally. I don’t get sleep for all these things sometimes. I don’t like to eat. But my father’s death hits me strongly as I pains me so much. Sometimes I feel I have nowhere to go. Sometimes I feel why god took him why not me as I feel worthless since my childhood. Feels I am walking in dark. Nobody is there for me. What to do? How to control these feelings before it will late to be better?

You may be going into aa self-pity mode and this will ruin all your hopes and aspirations. If your father is dead and you want to be grateful for all the money that is spent, then you will work harder and do everything well. But by pitying yourself you can go on messing up your life and become useless in the end. If you are genuine you will really do all that you ought to do and come out with flying colors. If you father dies when you were a teen I could see the severity of the loss. "Even so for his sake and yours you must push yourself to do better than others. Having a girlfriend in the middle of all this is also bad planning. Which girl will want to be with you if you do not do well in life? Again if you are serious about a girl, show your worth and prove that you are deserving of this girl. In my opinion, you have chosen the wrong girl, in the sense that she is already seeing another boy. In your place, I would determine to look fit, study well and develop good character. In these developments, you will not only be a success but you will be an attractive proposition for any suitable girl! So get up early and go for regular exercise, eat well and healthily, sleep well and be responsible with your academic pursuits.

I have an anxiety problem when I am about to give a speech. What should I do to stop feeling scared?
This is very normal for everyone. Even the greatest speakers have this problem every time they speak in public. It is the number fear for mankind. The problem lasts for only 90 seconds!!! So, you are advised to prepare a good opening sentence and then it will ease up considerably. Good preparation is good generally and look at friendly faces when you are actually speaking. Take a deep breath before the speech and come well dressed too.

Hi, You need psychotherapy, consult a psychologist online or in person for proper treatment. Exercise will not only make you feel better about yourself, but will flood your body with feel-good endorphins. Some researchers even believe that increasing your body heat, a natural result of exercise, may alter neural circuits controlling cognitive function and mood, including those that affect the neurotransmitter serotonin. Researchers believe this response can boost your mood, increase relaxation, and alleviate anxiety. Caffeine boosts your energy, and can make you jittery and anxious. If you can't go cold turkey, try reducing by a cup a day and see if you notice any decrease in your anxiety symptoms. You can also try switching to a drink with less caffeine and more health benefits, such as green tea. Deficiencies in magnesium, vitamin B12, and zinc have been linked to symptoms of anxiety. Vegans and vegetarians in particular should watch their B12 intake, as the vitamin is only found in animal products. • Studies link an unhappy gut with an unhappy mind, so avoid eating difficult to digest foods like processed meals, foods high in saturated fats, and fried foods. • Finally, don't let yourself become so hungry that your blood sugar drops, which can lead to an anxiety attack.

When one is under stress, as you are now, a lot of psychosomatic problems will arise. You need to look at your feelings of either sadness and/or anger. These emotions may be lying in your system unexpressed for various reasons and they can cause a lot of distress, including depression. What affects the mind affects the body. So talk to a counselor and doctor about your feelings and all your problems could easily be resolved, other things being normal.

Take pain relief tablets. Or consult ophthalmologist. Why you worried small things. I think you are not expressed any feelings with others. It is better to share the feelings with friends. Do not be alone. You are thinking alone too much on every aspect. Because that you are facing small problems and worrying very much. Do not develop sad movements. Be pleasant in all the time. It is good to you. It is better to consult psychologist he will analyse the problem and suggest some of modifications in your behaviour. Or otherwise yourself analyse and take further modifications. First thing better to share your personal feelings with your elders and friends. Take the advise of them and feel always comfortable and be friendly with your agemates. Enjoy the every movement of life. Eye pain may be psycho somatic means there is no problem but person affected severely. It should be rectified in psychologist. Better to consult a good psychologist. Best of luck. Best wishes.

I am 18year old guy. And now a days I habe lost interest in studies. Whenever I sit for studies I am unable to concentrate for a single minute. What to do. please help me plz.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
If you have lost interest in your studies then may be you are in the wrong course. 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. Perhaps you are not exercising enough everyday! Look into all of these matters and deal with it in an appropriate fashion. 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. There is a new exercise called Super Brain Yoga, which is done by holding the right earlobe with your left thumb and index finger, and the left earlobe with your right hand’s thumb and index finger. In this position you must squat down and rise up and do this for five minutes every day. The following foods do help too: Blueberries, walnuts, turmeric, Spinach, tomatoes, broccoli, acorn squash, green tea, oily fish, boiled egg, turkey, apples, oatmeal, leafy greens, lentils, pumpkin seeds, avocado, cinnamon, thyme, sunflower seeds, and red wine. Avoid sugar and junk food.
