Sometimes the experiences of childhood can make a person lean towards the other gender. I suggest that you meet a counsellor to help you vent out your thoughts and emotion. Counselling is confidential and non judgemental. She can also help you decide the best course of action since you mention marriage. There are many ways to get around this situation.

Dear, 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.

BHMS, MD - Homoeopathy

Yes, there can be some serious withdrawal symptom occur if you suddenly stop taking alcohol. So to avoid this, decrease quantity of alcohol, and also increase gap of days slowly, in this way you can easily quit alcohol completely in 1 or 2 months.

Hi lybrate-user the headache that you are experiencing, could be because of" stress" you could also be a bit in depression but for that you need to ask a psychologist who will diagnose your problem and tell you ways to deal with the problem. Anger and laziness both can be associated to stress/depressed state of mind.

It is the mental state of teen age. You should focus on your study as taking it as playing. The problem might be shared with your parent, they will rescue. At the same time from your statement it may be that you are anemic and also craved for salty food. If it is then there has enough scope of treatment in homoeopathy which is also required for correction of your mental state of disappointment. Urgently contact as JEE/NEET is ahead.

Dear Lybrate user. I can understand. Your daughter is just 3 and half years. Please consider her age. Children do act according to what they are trained for. You must understand you can easily train your child to do whatever you want. For training you have to first understand the child and her needs. You can use trial and error method or reward punishment method. If you don't have time, a psychologist should help you. I suggest online behaviour therapy for your child. Take care.

I am 58 year old professional women, working as a professor in an academic institution. Will retire in two years. For last one year, I have lost interest in work, just manage to do the routine work, and not feeling like any new challenges or tasks. I even avoid the assignments which I did brilliantly in the past such as designing capacity building strategies for NGOs or other organizations. I was very committed to the students and always was available for them, but have become dry in my relationship with them Also trying to avoid socializing and find excuses to avoid attending social events. Currently working on my doctoral thesis that is not moving ahead.

Dear user, I am sure you are stressed. Stress is simply a reaction to a stimulus that disturbs our physical or mental equilibrium. In other words, it's an omnipresent part of life. A stressful event can trigger the “fight-or-flight” response, causing hormones such as adrenaline and cortisol to surge through the body. A little bit of stress, known as “acute stress,” can be exciting—it keeps us active and alert. But long-term, or “chronic stress,” can have detrimental effects on health. You may not be able to control the stressors in your world, but you can alter your reaction to them. I need to know, what are the causes with which you are stressed? Once you know the reason, you will be able to adjust with it with some tips and tricks. Please let me know the details. Take care.

You are into an anger-related depression and need the assistance of a counselor too. This I am sure you have not tried and that is why there is so much trouble coming out of the depression. So find a good counselor and work with that person along with the medication you are taking. A lot of your symptoms are either induced by the depression or is a part of the disorder. So they should all stand to benefit if you combined the two therapies. 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. As regards the concentration you are sure to have hormonal imbalances which may impact your memory because of the chemical but also the distractions that come with it; together with depression I can imagine your problems. 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, 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 the family goes for counseling.

Hi, firstly rule out the following, drug and alcohol use can have a negative impact on memory functioning. Exercise and good health are associated with better brain oxygenation and improved speed of learning and recall. Fatigue can interrupt our ability to attend to incoming information as well as to retrieve stored information. The impact of stress and tension on memory abilities should not be underestimated. Feelings of anxiety and/or depression can interrupt your ability to attend to information, store information, and retrieve information. Tips: writing things down can help you remember things. Writing is a form of rehearsal. Writing also allows you to process the information through a other modalitites. Long-term memory requires a structure or framework so that you can retrieve information later. Organize information. Separate information into meaningful groups that share common attributes (e. G. When studying history learn facts associated with a particular time period, a particular person, or significant historical event together, as a group). For more queries and suggestion, you can contact me directly. All the best:)

How is his performance in school? how is his behavior otherwise? at 13 your child is at a very fragile age and will need to be handled carefully. Make sure that you show keen interest in activities that he likes. If possible, participate in them. This will help you establish a rapport with him and he' s more likely to take you seriously if he sees that you' re trying to understand him.

I am very confused about my career. I have an MBA degree and did job in a bank for one year. Due to health, I left my job and joined my family business but it is not satisfying my life. I really don't know, who am I? When I watch a movie, I wish I would be a director, actor,writer etc. When I see rich people with luxurious life, I wish I would be there. When I see a celebrity I wish people would love me. Only I think kinds of those situations. But when I go to prepare myself to do something which I think to be, my moral and willpower go down.

Do not lose heart. These are quite common symptoms at your age. You are not satisfied with your life. If you can pursue something of your choice then it is fine. If not, best thing would be to gradually start a routined life in which there is exercise, reading and meditation. You will slowly build up your will power and your life will get a direction. Pursue a hobby and try to see where your interest lies. Last but not the least, be positive. That is the key to being happy and excelling in life.
