Dear lybrateuser, -first try to stop smoking completely since one or two cigarettes occasionally can lead you to more numbers slowly -slowly -for your problems take a healthy diet & do regular exercises --eat vegetables, fruits, whole grain foods like oats, dalia, dairy products like milk, eggs, paneer, nuts, non-veg like fish, chicken, have yoghurt daily -start doing exercises to increase your strength & stamina, do brisk walking, jogging, swimming, yoga, after sometime your problems will go away.

Sir/Madam, I am 27years old unmarried boy. My father expired due to road accident last year at age of 51. He was living in Jaipur along with family (mother and brother). I was close to him as he was my idol. My sole aim of life was to make him proud by fulfilling his wish of me become IAS. But since the accident I am very depressed. I think about him every day. I always believed everything happens for a good reason but I can't find any in this. I lost faith in god. He was really a good man. Never did wrong to anybody and taught me same. That's why I feel so much anger that why he went away like this. I have so much regrets like when He was in hospital after accident I got scared so much that I didn't do anything for him. I should have been brave. I regret that he was in tension in his last days as he was cheated by his brother and I knowing this fact didn't console or reduce his tension, I was busy in my job. I am living in Noida alone. I left my job 4 months ago and I am unable to prepare for a new job. I was senior software engineer. I don't find positivity in anything. I lost interest in everything. I lost aim of my life and don't know what to do with my life. He was the most important thing in my life. I will never b as good man as him. I can't move on. Sometimes I wish I was dead instead of him. My mother always keep talking about him and cries everyday. This makes me even more sad. Sometimes I feel like I don't want to live anymore but I don't have this option as I have to take care of my brother and mother. But I don't how much more I can take it. Please help me.

Your father is there in heaven looking at you and must be feeling very proud of you that you respect and love him so much. I am sure you are a good man that you want to take care of your family. These kinds of feelings are normal after loosing your loved ones. Do not blame your self for any kind of behaviour or do not feel guilty for anything now get hold of your self and start thinking what your dad would want of you. Always experience his blessings n his presence around you. You can still make him proud. He wants you to be happy so pamper yourself with your friends and go out often. I am sure you will be fine and soon you will get a good job. Do not loose faith in god sometimes we can not understand his ways. God surely has better plan for you and your father is in better place now. All the best sm and take care of yourself and your family.

I am 25 female. Suffering from major breakdown in every area of my life. One bad incident and whole life came crashing down. I am trying very hard to deal with it but it just seems impossible to come out of of. Death seems to be the only way to freedom from this struggle. But problem is, I am not a weak person and though I really want to anyhow just free myself from this, suicide is not my way.

Dear Lybrate user. I can understand. Definitely yes. Suicide is not your way. You have enough experience fighting negative situations in your life. All those situations gave you a lot of positive lessons which are your greatest assets. Be proud of them. As you had see many negatives, the bright part is near. Don't surrender. Positives are round the corner. Be patient. Take care.

I think you get into a panic mode during the exams and develop the jitters. It is best for you to do deep breathing for a few minutes and you will calm down immediately. There is a good exercise that helps to lower panic immediately: block your closed lips with your index finger and blow tight against your cheeks and hold that breath for some time and then release it. Your heart beat will slow down instantly and you will have a calmer demeanor to approach your exam paper. A lot of the reason may be true because of stress perhaps. But you may work on the following to help you: 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.

You must be under some stress or creating stress. Meet with a counselor and do sort that out for good memory. In the meantime do the following: 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.

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 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 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.

Antidepressants take 2-3 weeks to start acting. The dose also need to be increased. If you don't tolerate the dose, another antidepressant will be added. Along with these psychosocial therapies need to be done. If you go on changing doctors, every doctor starts with one type of antidepressant. She/he does not get a chance to help you further. Stay with one doctor and ask her/him to refer you another doctor if necessary

Dear , anxiety disorder is not a disease. It is a disorder. Mental disorder not requires medicines. Psychotherapy, life style changes, meditation etc are enough to cure your problem. You must learn and educate yourself about your anxiety disorder. The more you try to" cure" your anxiety, anxiety increases and cure is not possible. You have to change your mindset. Post a direct question to me

Psychologist,
You may be under some stress, and I do not know if you are aware of it. Find out what this disturbance is all about and as you address it, memory and concentration will happily return to favor you. Do meet with a counselor, if your stress is too much. In the meantime please follow the suggested 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.

Hello, dandruff causes hair loss so its necessary to treat dandruff first. Take thuja 200, 5 drops in the morning, once in a week. Take arnica q and cochleria arom. Q in equal amount, mix with equal amount of coconut oil, and apply this on your scalp, thrice a day. Wash your hair with b&t anti- dandruff shampoo. Home remedies are as follows:- coconut oil helps eliminate dandruff due to its antifungal properties. It also moisturizes dry scalp and provides relief from itching. Take some coconut oil and mix half the amount of lemon juice in it. 1. Rub it on your scalp and massage for a few minutes. 2. Wash your hair after at least 20 minutes. 3. Follow this remedy two to three times a week. Revert me after 1 month.

Dear Jyotsna, Congratulations for taking care, understanding and helping your husband for 6 years. Please let me know, what medicines you were giving him to avoid alcohol. It may be Ativan kind of tablets. Is he now dependent on Ativan or some other sleeping pill? He may be still in depression and that is why he is still dependent on pills. He needs proper treatment for depression along with getting him out of sleeping pills. Otherwise he may shift from one dependence to another to get some relief from depression. Please take help from the doctor who gave medicines to avoid alcohol. He may help you to diagnose depression or sleep disorder in Vikas and help you out.
