I am facing problem from 3-4 years of stammering problem. I am a student. I can't read properly.

M.Sc - Applied Psychology, MS - Counselling and Psychotherapy
Psychologist,
Hello lybrate user, I believe every person who stutters is slightly different. From the top, we would all look same but if you dive deeper you would know everyone is different with respect to syllables on which they stutter, frequency, places they might stutter, may stutter while talking to specific people etc. So you need to analyse your stuttering with respect to above points so you can work to reduce it with greater efficiency. Here are the things which is useful: 1. Breathing: this has been already stressed enough by other people. Notice your breathing pattern when you stammer. You will notice that you breath shallow while stammering and try to complete sentence as soon as possible which leads to more stuttering. Taking control of your breathing can do wonders. Breath deep and talk slowly. 2. Substitution: when you make note of syllables/words on which you stammer, you can substitute those with their synonyms on which you don't stutter. Another trick is inserting things like'umm'you know'i feel' etc when you feel that you are about to stammer. 3. Mirror technique: this helped me a lot. Shut the door, stand alone in front of a mirror, start reading any small article/chapter loudly for around 20 mins from a magazine/ newspaper which you haven't read before. When you are done with reading that, look in the mirror and try to talk about it loudly. Try it for 30 days and see if you can feel the difference. 4. Acceptance: accept the fact that there are millions like you. Don't try to hide it or run away from it. Accept it as a part of you and try to live with it. Thank you. Try to consult any speech therapist too.

I have a phobia which scare me to get into the enclosed places such as Lift, metro rail and closed room if some lock from outside. When i lock from inside there is no problem. I have cervical problem also. Please guide me.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Phobias are fear-based problems where you exaggerate the stimulus to very frightful proportions. You have very high level of fear which you are not dealing with properly. You will need to meet with a counselor to identify that and find ways to counter it effectively. Now because of that fear you explain it rather clearly that if you are in control, the phobia is less: like closing the door from inside gives you control, whereas if it is shut from the outside you have no control. As a result you may have control issues too. The cervical problem could be stress induced - all connected to the scare. Fear is such a common human trait that there have been special schools devoted to the study and understanding of it. You are not alone but do reach out and resolve this soon for you to enjoy a normal and peaceful life.

I was 75 kg before 2 years. After that I slightly kind of became a stress eater. That means from a certain point in my life till now, eating different kinds of tasty oily food only gives me happiness. If I become sad also I eat so much and happy also I eat too much.

Dealing with stress by eating is a common occurrence. 'Comfort food' tends to make you feel better because it is usually something delicious, fried or sweet, and loaded with calories. It is also seen that people with anxiety and depression tend to resort to comfort eating. The problem is that being overweight or obese puts you at a high risk for heart disease and diabetes. I suggest you talk to a psychiatrist to look for any depression or anxiety. If that is the underlying cause, medication and counseling will help you. Other than that you need to consult an experienced nutritionist who will help you plan a diet which suits your lifestyle. Don't go for any fad diets or plans which are in vogue; not all of them are suitable for everyone to implement. You will need to incorporate exercise along with dietary modification and lifestyle change. The best results are seen with a combination of diet and exercise. Before starting any form of exercise, consult a doctor and get a check up done. Do not opt for very strenuous exercise immediately as you might injure yourself or harm yourself. Keep in mind this is a long road, with lot of obstacles, but with motivation and hard work you will be able to achieve your goals. Wish you the best.

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.

Stress does not allow you to concentrate hence try controlling your stress. Organize yourself. Spending your time and enrgy so you can handle stress more effectively. Control your environment by controlling who and what is surrounding you. Love yourself by giving yourself positive feedback. Reward yourself by planning leisure activities into your life. Exercise regularly, listening to relaxing music, communicating with friends and loved ones. Reset yourself as regularly as possible.

Dear Lybrate user. I can understand. Memory and mind power depends on three aspects. Understanding, retention and recollection. Recollection is easy if your retention is proper and flawless. Retention is possible when you are able understand what you read or learn. To understand you should have concentration. Concentration comes from effective learning techniques based on creative and active learning. Physical exercise, outdoor games, entertainment, socializing coupled with systematic learning improves your memory and mind power. Vegetables, fruits and nuts are perfect for memory. Brain games like sudoku and jigsaw puzzles helps too. Avocados, Beetroots, Blueberries, Broccoli. Celery, Coconut Oil, Dark Chocolate etc are good for improving concentration and memory. I suggest online education counseling. Take care.

Hello, I understand that having a baby is very important for you and somewhere in your mind, probably your time clock is ticking away saying that you are getting older now and may not have a baby. And you are so keen to have a baby of your own? this thought alone might be a cause for more anxiety, sense of loss, sadness and anger with yourself. However, I would like to bring to your notice that overthinking about this or anything else will only bring emotional imbalance leading to more bp fluctuations. Our mind and body are connected and any mental and emotional imbalance causes an imbalance in the body. 1. Please exercise everyday within your capacity to burn off the excess calories and fat intake. Exercising will also help in uplifting your mood and improve your self image and give you a sense of control over your body. 2. Eat only healthy food limiting oil, sugars, processed and refined foods to the bare minimum. Raw and whole food diet having more of fruits, vegetables, whole grains is known to control and reduce rising bp. Add a source of good fats like walnuts, nuts and oil seeds to improve your heart functioning. Cut out meats and unhealthy cooking styles and choose steaming, stir frying over boiling and frying. 3. Yoga, meditation etc to control your anxiety and calm down the mind to help become emotionally stable and peaceful. This will also keep your bp stable. Bhramri and anulom vilom are especially 2 pranayamas very helpful in bringing emotional balance. 4. Counselling to help you learn tips and techniques to manage stressful events without losing your mental and emotional equilibrium. You will be able to cope with stress and learn to manage stress and tension with ease. 5. Only when you are healthy, will your baby be healthy. It will need a lot of attention and care when it arrives. What kind of life do you want to give your child? please consider the chances of you not feeling fit enough to take care of the baby keeping your health in mind. 6. Consider other options of having a child: would you rather consider adopting a baby over putting your body through this stress. Or would you like to volunteer your time in a childrens playhome or shelters where abandoned children are taken care of? there are number of ways that you can still meet your need to bring up a child and feel worthwhile and fulfilled. Please consider your options and their pros and cons before rushing in to any decision. Take care.

I am in very depression because I lost someone very important to me please give me some advice.
Losing someone close is a big loss and your state of mind is understandable. However you need to get over this and move on. This is going to take some time though. However if you feel your depressive thoughts are more than usual and it's getting difficult for you to go through this phase you can vouch a psychiatrist for help and counseling.
