Dear lybrate-user. Having an urge to have sex with a masculine man is not a bad habit. But having sex with men is a bad habit and is called homosexual urges. Though it is not a crime, it is better to avoid it because it is anti natural. You are having this anxiety feeling just because of that anti-natural credentials. Counseling can help you. Take care.

I think you probably have low self esteem. May be you did not get enough appreciation from people around you. Please understand that we all are different from each other and we all are unique. Hence you are also unique and are as important as any other person in this world. Do not compare yourself with any other person. You are only 18 and this is the time in your life when you need to study a lot, learn new skills so that you can have a bright future. Make a list of your strengths (plus points), paste/hang it at a place where you can see it every day. Think about the things you want to improve upon, start working on them. Have a goal in life. Take advise from experienced people. Be in the company of friends who have good values and are positive. If possible talk to your school/college counsellor. Counselling will help you to relieve your stress and tensions. All the best.

My son is 3.2 years old, he has lisping in his words, is it terminate itself as he grows or something has to be done from our side I e to look after the doctor in the same, please advice.

Advance Course in Neuro linguistic Programming, Diploma In Dyslexic Studies, Masters In Psychological Counselling
Psychologist, Mumbai
Lisping could be due to physiological and psychological reasons. Among the physiological factors are the functioning of the tongue, the vibration of the vocal cords, the cleft of the pallet etc. You need to first identify wether it is a developmental issue by consuling a speech language therapist (slp. Once that is ruled out then you need to address the psychological issues.

Hi am taking all things seriously, not getting proper sleep, getting angry and tensed just I can see all negative.

Hi am taking all things seriously, not getting proper sleep, getting angry and tensed just I can see all negative.
It is not bad to take things seriously, provided you read them in proper perspective. You yourself have mentioned that you take everything in negative. This is what needs to be corrected. You sem to be reading too much between the lines which gives unrequired dimentions to happenings around you. Take things as they are, evaluate them peacefully without prejudice. Don't react instantly, hold on for some time and over a period you will automatically realize a reduction in your undesired responses like irritation and anger. Try to divert your attention towards activities you like, this will pacify your mind and help in smooth induction of sound sleep.

Psychologist, Palakkad
Anxiety disorders are a category of mental disorders characterized by feelings of anxiety and fear, where anxiety is a worry about future events and fear is a reaction to current events. These feelings may cause physical symptoms, such as a racing heart and shakiness. There are a number of anxiety disorders: including generalized anxiety disorder, a specific phobia, social anxiety disorder, separation anxiety disorder, agoraphobia, and panic disorder among others. While each has its own characteristics and symptoms, they all include symptoms of anxiety. I need to know more about your anxiety so that I will be able to diagnose it properly and provide you tips to overcome and manage your anxiety. Take care.

If your mind is disturbed then sit silently for 10 minutes switching your mobile alone and focus on your breathing. Just focus on the inhalation and exhalation for ten minutes.

There may be a spurt in your growth hormone and i9t will last as long as your body is increasing in size. During this time all the energy is focussed and devoted to the growing of yoru body where the bone grows faster than the flesh. This will lead to feeling of exhaustion and tiredness. You will need to consume more protein and calcium at this time and you must exercise to channelize the growth in desirable areas. For concentration please do some of these recommendations: I suspect that the adolescent issues with regard to hormones may be affecting your ability to concentrate and remember. When the hormones play up, it lasts for a period of close to two years and during that time you could be influenced by three signs directly impacted by the chemical: you will tend to become aggressive and rebellious, you will become sexually active, and you will have acne and pimple problems. The hormonal imbalances may not only impact your memory because of the chemical but also bring some distractions that come with it. But you may work on the following even if the hormones kick in: 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 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 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. There is 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 the family goes for counseling too. 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. You may also include these noted foods that are good for your brain health: Brain-Friendly Foods MIND stands for Mediterranean-DASH Intervention for Neurodegenerative Delay. But the MIND approach “specifically includes foods and nutrients that medical literature and data show to be good for the brain, such as berries,” says Martha Clare Morris, ScD, director of nutrition and nutritional epidemiology at Rush University Medical Center. You eat things from these 10 food groups: •Green leafy vegetables (like spinach and salad greens): At least six servings a week •Other vegetables: At least one a day •Nuts: Five servings a week •Berries: Two or more servings a week •Beans: At least three servings a week •Whole grains: Three or more servings a day •Fish: Once a week •Poultry (like chicken or turkey): Two times a week •Olive oil: Use it as your main cooking oil. •Wine: One glass a day You avoid: •Red meat: Less than four servings a week •Butter and margarine: Less than a tablespoon daily •Cheese: Less than one serving a week •Pastries and sweets: Less than five servings a week •Fried or fast food: Less than one serving a week.

Dear, concentration in other worlds is called attention. Attention is the period of time you are able to be attentive to any subject or act. Usually for any adult, it is less than 10 minutes. To improve attention span, you need to energetic and the task should be interesting or you should be passionate about the task. Exercise well, be entertained and be passionate to what you do. Your attention span will improve. Take care.

Many a times for anxiety disorder, you need to take long term medications. So kindly consult your psychiatrist regularly and take them as advised. Newer desvenlafaxine has come, which controls anxiety better then plain venlafaxine. Discuss with your psychiatrist. All the best.

I am 18 years old and cannot memories any studies. What should I do?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist,
Yes, this may be true because of your age. I suspect that you are going through a spurt in the production of the male sex hormone, which affects you in three ways quite unknown to you. First, there will be a sexual agenda that it will kick off, secondly, there will be aggressiveness and rebelliousness, and thirdly, you will suffer from acne and pimple problems. This is the effect of the hormone that has a duration of almost two years and you will have no control over it. But if you have a good value system you will tide over this phase without significant damage. The hormonal imbalances may not only impact your memory because of the chemical but also bring along some distractions that come with it. But you may work on the following even if the hormones kick in: 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.

I am 53 years old. Of late I am unable to remember simple things like carrying my specs or office bag until someone reminds me every time to do the same. Moreover I am unable to recollect the incident or the person whom I met 2 to3 days back and I end up asking him why he has come or for what purpose. If this is dementia then please help me out of this trouble.

Dear Mr. Lybrate-user. You may have normal age related memory problem or mild cognitive impairment. There are chances of underlying depression also which may cause pseudementia like picture also. So I think though still it's not a mazor problem it should be assessed properly.

It is the nature of the brain or mind to continuously produce thoughts, otherwise you will become a yogi. It is also the nature of thought to wander or shift here and there. The problem is, you are not in a position to channellize them for a good purpose. I mean, have achievable aims or targets in life which could be helpful for the betterment of youself, your family and for the world. You will realize that your thoughts are really your boons.
