Hello Mady, Firstly, it is so difficult to understand problems in one go, it is easy to give solutions, but much important is the root cause of the problem. If you can find a qualified therapist then that may be a good idea for her. Some sessions will help her to bring herself back together. Therapist can help her to overcome the underlying (stressors) It is important that each stressor is addressed and dealt with appropriately. After few interventions she will be able to help herself in becoming normal again. Regards Stuti

Dear Lybrate user, At your age, Memory problems like amnesia are not common. Many young people are having problems with memory. These problems are either they are too busy or due to anxiety and stress. Busy people use organizers or employ a personal assistant because they can't remember every task. You need to understand this. If you still say, you are having memory problems, we need to check your memory using memory test. If you want more of my help in this regard, please contact me. Take care.

Hi I am expecting, but I dont have any excitement about it, my career is not on the track thats y I dont want to take baby right now, but my hubby wants. What should I have to do now?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

If your heart is not into this pregnancy, you may affect the unborn child. It is not your husband? s wish alone, you also must want that child and convey that to it in your feelings, attitude, and taking care of yourself. In fact it is necessary for that child to feel your love. Job and career will come later. Pregnancy is a blessing, and if it an unwanted child the effects will start showing on that child. Get excited, learn all about child rearing and get some special information from your gynecologist to foster good feelings. I don? t know your age but the earlier you get a child the better. Every thought and feeling that you go through is communicated to the child and that child must feel wanted and awaited with all the excitement possible. That is your responsibility.

Dear, you must be able to distinguish between mental disease and mental disorder. Your problem is a mental disorder. Not a mental disease. These mental disorders are usually treated with a combination of medicines and other means like awareness, meditation, psychotherapy techniques, life style changes etc. I think two or three counseling sessions and psycho therapy techniques should solve her problem. Let me know if she is willing to undergo counseling sessions and tailor made psycho therapy through mobile. Take care.

What you are feeling might be due to conic stress, result of our fast life style. You could also explain this as feeling burnout. To begin with doing guided progressive muscular relaxation before sleeping will help you relax. You good google and download an audio file. I would also suggest you to take a multiple small break to take 3 nice and deep breath while keeping your eyes closed. You could do this while sitting or standing or while even walking or climbing stairs (keep your eyes open in that case). When you take a nice and deep break there is actual physiological change in your body. Thus will help you to activate parasympathetic nervous system which promotes relaxation and helps you calm down and think more clearly. This will also actually improve your performance in your work. Along with this exercise is one of the best way to relive stress and stay fit. Engage in any kind of physical activity at least 4 times a week. This also helps in stress reduction. Along with this some relaxation exercises as well as engaging in joyful activities such as music, singing, dancing, reading, being in nature, gardening, talking with friends or anything which you enjoy will help reducing stress and rejuvenation of your mind and body. Have good routine for sleep and eating. Lot of research has now proven that sugar is very harmful for our health. Reduce sugar and refined white floor in your diet as much as you could. Along with this also increase consumption of raw vegetables in the form of salad in both the meals of your day. If you need help in exploring what works best for you and make this into your life style do let me know. As a trained wellness coach I could help you tailored your own holistic wellness program. Hope this helps wishing you very best.

Dear client as you mentioned in your query you are watching tv and eating. You're not interested in any other work, you are feeling depressed, hopeless, helpless. My first advise for you is to live your life fully, there are many good things in this world, life is so beautiful, enjoy it fully, spend your time with family members and friends make new friends, join any personality development classes, or any new learning classes in which you are interested, avoid watching tv alone. Watch some entertainment programs along with family members, fix a limited time for tv. Practice meditation do physical exercise/ activities regularly then you will understand how many things you're missed. Don't be upset/ disappointed at least now enjoy your life fully. All the best.

Dear, You must be able to understand Concentration, attention span, recollection and distraction. If you are able to watch a movie for two hours continuously, if you are able to play a game for an hour, then you do not have any concentration problems. You can't be attentive towards your studies because you are not interested in it. You are able to watch movie and play game because you are interested in it. Human cannot be attentive towards anything for more than 10 minutes. Then you should study in such a way that your attention is continued and make the subjects are interesting to you. Effective learning techniques should help you. Recollection depends on anxiety, stress and other physical and circumstantial factors. Distractions while studying are plentiful. You should be able to overcome distractions or avoid distractions. Please understand the above. Change your study style and attitude accordingly. Please post a private question to me and I will help you with "effective learning" techniques. Avocados, Beetroots, Blueberries, Broccoli. Celery, Coconut Oil, Dark Chocolate etc are good for improving concentration. Take care.

I do not have constant mind which is always oscillated and also I have fear, nerves and lot of negative thoughts. Due to this problem I quit my job. So that please give the better solution to overcome this problem.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
This must be pretty severe for you to quit your job!!! You must seek the help of a counselor especially to get some education about emotions particularly fear. You may be suffering from poor self-confidence and poor self-image. There is abnormal fear and it could do with some contribution from your upbringing. Perhaps you experienced strict parenting, or you were intimidated by dire consequences for failure; perhaps you were brought up believing that you were not as good as others; perhaps you were forced to show undue regard for elders and felt inferior around them, etc. In the meantime, you must do certain things to build your constitution physically, spiritually, emotionally, and mentally. Mental stability can be achieved by learning a few skills in handling emotions in an appropriate manner. Stress management skills, which have a lot to do with expressing emotions, will need to be a major part of your recovery program. Emotionally you need the help of a counselor and that will help you tremendously to move from anxiety to normal fear. Please persevere and cooperate through all the support you need and you will come through successfully. Develop your body’s health by physical fitness through exercise, good rest (sleep), and a proper diet. Anyway what you need to focus on is to do vigorous exercise of the aerobic kind for the heart’s fitness; meditation for the brain’s fitness; sleep for a well rested mind and body; a sound spiritual well-being​ for good confidence and stability; and a diet with lots of vegetables, fruits, and whole grains. Vigorous exercise, especially of the callisthenic kind, will make your heart, which is a muscle, grow larger; and then your heart will need to beat less often and you will respond to the anxiety with a calmer disposition. If your mind, constitution, and your emotions are in check and fit, you will never be disturbed again. You need to attend personality development courses, personal grooming courses, conversational skills courses, and definitely a good education will empower you to boost self-confidence and by default self-image. Learn never to compare yourself with others: you are unique and there is only one of your kind, ever. If you let that sink in and appreciate who you are truly, you will go places.

I am 30 year male and have some problem of memory loss for some time and also not able to do consideration for a long time. Is this due to my bad habit in childhood ?

MBBS, MD - Psychiatry, MBA (Healthcare)
Psychiatrist, Davanagere
Hi there ~ A Guide to Finding Treatments That Work Try to exercise on most days. You don’t have to go to the gym. A 30-minute walk four times a week is enough to provide benefits. Thirty minutes of activity every day is even better. Pick something enjoyable, so you’ll stick with it. Choose activities that play to your physical strengths or that you find challenging yet fun. Team sports can be a good choice because the social element keeps them interesting.

Dear, Tobacco is addictive. Cigarette also contains 4000+ carcinogenic chemicals other than nicotine. Smoking can affect your mouth, throat, lungs, heart, stomach and brain in many ways. Cancer is one among the potential diseases smoking can cause. The best method is to leave it and continue with your will power. There are other methods like Nicotine Replacement therapy and pharmacotherapy combined. Nicotine chewing gums too help as an alternative for cigarettes. But still you will need will power. You may consult a physician or deaddiction therapist or a rehabilitation facility for further advice. You can also opt for online deaddiction therapy. Take care.

Sir please tell me the meaning of depression and its symptoms of depression also how I can come out from from the depression.

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Patiala
Hello and thanks for your query let me tell you that depression is not synonymous to day to day stress with which we deal. It is a diagnosis which needs to fulfil certain criteria to be labelled as major depressive disorder. Its symptoms are sadness of mood, loss of interest in routine activities, decreased or increased sleep/appetite, fatigue, guilt, suicidal thoughts. Depending upon the severity of depressive disorder, certain medications along with psychotherapy and relaxation exercises can help. I advise you to consult a psychiatrist for proper diagnosis and management. Hope it helps. Regards Dr. Gourav monga consultant psychiatrist.

Stress Can Increase You Weight

Stress increases cortisol hormone in body which may increase hunger pangs, which makes you eat without hunger.
What to do.
1. Take 6-9 hr sleep daily
2. Do not drink alcohol
3. Chill. Don't take stress.

You asked: I am 18 year old, female. I have been suffering from stammering since childhood and normally with my family and other people I speak normally and hardly stutter but in public places when I am in situation such as in interviews, presentation etc I am hardly able to speak and sometimes the situation gets worse as I make faces while speaking and my stomach also squeezes. Go out of breath. So recently I was thinking to join a public speaking course or should I see speech therapist but I am confused as will it help me to improve?

MBBS, MD (AIIMS, Gold Medalist), Diploma in CBT (Glasgow)

Hi Tanya, Thanks for writing in. Welcome to the forum. From what you are saying, there appears to be a very strong component of social anxiety. This can be handled with psychotherapy, medicines or both depending upon the exacts nature and severity of the symptoms. Public speaking courses and speech therapy are also likely to help with respect to the specific issue of stammering in public places. But with regard to the several other aspects of this problem, speaking to a mental health expert is a good idea. Take care!

I don't why my mood won't be right. I remain unhappy and some days I when I am happy and with comfortable people around me I talk and engage socially. How do I come out of this situation?

BHMS
Homeopath, Faridabad
Hello, try to control your mood swings and keep the stress at bay! take homoeopathic medication - schwabe's bacopa monierri 1x/ thrice daily and kali phos. 6x/ once at night - take them for 4 weeks. Management: there are few yoga poses which helps in calming your mind and relieves stress. Exercises: practice shavasana or corpse pose as it looks like a dead body. If practiced correctly and with full efforts, can relax every body part, relaxing not only the body but also the mind: spread the legs one to two feet apart, the toes are turned outwards, the heels facing each other, a comfortable distance apart. Bring the arms a little away from the body, palms turned upward. Relax the neck and allow it to turn to the side if it is more comfortable. Close the eyes and focus the attention on the body, breathing normally. Begin focusing each body part and relaxing it, then moving on. Keep the mind focused on relaxation, the breath should be normal. Relax the whole body. (the mind and body are deeply connected. If the mind is occupied by thoughts and worries then the shavasana will be unsuccessful. Therefore one has to acquire the stability of the mind along with the stability of the body.) anuloma involves inhaling through both nostrils together and exhaling each breath alternately between the left and right nostrils. The thumb of the right hand is used to manipulate the right nostril, while the pinky and ring finger are used to control the left nostril. There are many other poses of yoga like balasan, setu bandha sarvangasan, uttanasan, garudasan, savasana, triconasana, viprita karani, marjaryasana, dhyana, bhujangasana, anulom-vilum, pranayam, etc. But first learn these under a qualified yoga-teacher as many poses are prohibited in certain diseases or medical conditions! another stress-buster can be getting involved in any of your hobbies (may be a childhood hobby which you used to enjoy a lot!) - dancing, singing, painting, listening to soothing music, playing musical instruments, etc.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. At your age memory problems like amnesia, dementia etc are not possible. I don't think you have any memory related problems. Still to be sure, I suggest you to undergo memory test online or offline. You may contact me after getting the result. Memory depends on three things. Understanding, retention and recollection. To understand better, you have to learn better, effectively. I suggest online educational counseling. Take care.

Night falls are physiological at males of your age if they occur once in a while, say once once in 15-20 days. This usually occurs due to overflow incontinence during sleep. Night falls do not cause any adverse effects on the body. However if you have frequent night falls and feel like having pe too then you should certainly contact a psychiatrist for treatment. Treatment includes a short course of medications and practicing some exercises that help in controlling night emissions and premature ejaculations.
