Hello, my neighbour is a female age of 28 She wants to have sex with me, always I denied, I explain her it's wrong but she is not listening, pls suggest what do I do?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You are right to refuse her and you must keep far away from her as you could be a huge temptation for her. She is far older than you and her libido may be stimulated to high levels making it difficult for her to contain herself. She should ideally seek to get married and settle down in life. You have so many other things to do in life and cannot be caught up with this situation, which can bring a lot of disturbances in your scheme of things in life. Please focus on your career and academics. This can be very difficult especially at your age but it is certainly not a welcome distraction.

hi, I can empathize and understand your situation . The problem is surely due to the side effects of the drug. You plz ask your psychiatrist to prescribe some medicine to reduce this problem. As far as the damage to the kidney problem I would suggest you to get the renal function test (RFT) done. It will show you the correct status of your kidneys. Along with this I would advise you to drink a lot of water in day time and reduce the quantity of water intake after 6:00 pm so that your sleep won't get disturbed. Also go for a brisk walk daily for at least half an hour. Regards Sunita

Concentration

MBA (HR), D.Sc, MS - Counselling and Psychotherapy, M.Sc - Psychotherapy
Psychologist, Pune
Concentration
Want to improve your Concentration?

1. Cut out the noise. Noise is a distraction and interrupts our thinking. It makes it harder for us to focus, to process, retrieve and then use information.

2. Structure your environment. Try and set aside a specific place to study - somewhere that is quiet, and free from normal, everyday distractions.

3. Know what you’re aiming for. You won’t achieve much without clear objectives. You need to have a concrete and specific goal. That is, something you can measure and can work towards.

4. Plan your studying for the day. Tick off your achievements as you work through your list. That will help to keep you focused, so you’re less inclined to daydream - or to waste time doing futile, pointless things.

5. Know what the guidelines and the standards are. Then, adhere closely to those when doing you’re doing practice tests, or writing an assignment, or thinking through your answers.

6. Expect to meet roadblocks. That way, obstacles won’t throw you off your course. You’ll get up and work around them – so they don’t destroy your plans.

7. Become a hermit and isolate yourself. It’s just for a short time, and it’s worth it in the end.

8. Be patient, and hang in there, when you feel unmotivated. If you can just push through this, you will find that you learn something.

Tension, forgetfulness and decreased concentration can be a symptom of depression or anxiety. Consult a psychiatrist for effective treatment. Eat well, sleep on time, maintain a regular day structure, meditation, breathing exercises, focus on the task, rehearse all these will improve your memory and concentration and reduce stress.

I am a 2 year old boy I dont have memory power I cannot remember what learn.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist,
I suggest that you get your parent or some elder person to read this and explain it to you. It is a good time to work on your memory improvement skills. In some kids the hormonal imbalances may be noticed earlier which may impact your memory because of the chemical but also the 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 exercise 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.

Hello user I can tell you to deal with your bad thoughts but for another problem you have to consult any doctor r psychologist fro this. Controlling thoughts will just end up giving more importance to them. They will come back ten times stronger. Because at the level of the mind, what you resists, persists. Do not try to control thoughts without a tool. Breath is a very powerful tool. Doing Pranayam, Meditation, breathing in a specific rhythm will help in having a say over your mind and thoughts. Mostly unwanted thoughts come to you when your work load is less and idle time is more. The more we sit without any activity, the more thoughts come to us. Drink plenty of water, do yoga, gym, running, meditation, sports, listen to music, get creative, spend time with nature, develop a hobby and you will find bad thoughts will eventually subside. Watch your food habits and bowel moment, Include fresh fruits and vegetables. Spend time out in the sun. Check your Vitamin D and B12 levels. More importantly relax. Get old sleep. Stop excess use of gadgets or watching TV. Spend time out in the nature. Work/Study and do whatever that keeps you busy.

My relation who is 24 years is suffering from schizophrenia and he is refusing to use medicines prescribed by Doctors. What should be done Is there any alternative? Is Electric Convulsion Treatment (ECT} is an answer to this. If so is it advisable and risks involved.

MBBS, MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Pondicherry
For a condition like schizophrenia, it would be ideal if the patient is able to take medication regularly. However, it is a challenge as well. In such cases, the next option available is usually that of injections that can be administered on a fortnightly or monthly basis. ECT is usually considered when the patient is quite agitated or suicidal, in which case it is found to be very effective. It is a safe option and the risks involved are only those that are associated with anaesthesia for individuals having other medical illness (hypertension, cardiac problem etc). In the absence of such risks, one would experience mild headache or body pains after the ECT.

Cognitive behaviour therapy works better in OCD, anxiety disorder and depression , but it may take long time to cure unless it is combined with some medications. CBT is a form of psychotherapy and if combined with pharmacotherapy it works best.

Hi, I'm a 20 years old college student, depressed since 2 years. Life was normal when used to go school. cause, I hardly used to spend time with my family. But, the whole scenario had changed from the day I started going college. And it's not studies, it's my parents who, I don't know expects WHAT from me. I have siblings and cousins who earns good and are enjoying their life to the fullest now. I even have a younger cousin and my aunt always compares Me with her every time, in front of guest in front of neighbours and the sad part is my parents do nothing but just laugh with them. I feel like I am in a competition competing with my siblings and cousin, when they are praised and everybody laughs at me. Not body supports me not my mother, father not even my real sisters. They never did guide me ever. They literally laugh at me when I do something wrong and my parents scold me and always try to make numbers by showing me the real culprit. And I know, it's not there fault, my parents don't trust me enough to believe me. I feel like nobody's there for me. My life is so depressing. I feel like killing myself:(My life is a big NO NO. No matter whatever I do, I know, my parents won't take my side, ever ever ever. I know you must be thinking, no way a parent can be like this. they don't like me but life is all about adjusting and I've tried to adjust it since years and now I can't, I repeat, I can't take this anymore. Please advise.

Dear lybrate-user, I know nobody likes comparison with others. You can beat it, by excelling in another aspect where you are more talented. For all these, your negative attitude will not help. You are using in your thinking many global words like no one, no body, no no, ever ever, etc. You should question yourself whether it is a fact or your thought. It may be your thought only which you are confusing as fact. In the world, everything happens 100% is rare. Like that never happens 0% is also rare. When you think of rare things, you will be rarely right. Since you feel like killing yourself, it is better that you come on online consultation and treatment. Or tell your parents to take you to psychiatrist or clinical psychologist. You may be given antidepressant tablets and/or talk therapy. With treatment your attitude about your family will change. Please remember that your were fine in school days in the same family since your attitude was not so negative at that time.

Https://www.Dropbox.Com/s/99zlkbsyit9yyh7/Lab%20Results%20-%20WellnessFXf.Pdf?dl=0 Lab results are a little over year old but my issues are getting worse now and I don't have a lot of money to blow on a lot of test. I wake up with a really bad headache Evey morning and it goes down a couple hours later but never really leaves. It feels like when you stand up really quick and you get dizzy for a while but all the time. Also I'm really fatigued all the time. Sometimes ill have a good day but most of the time after working 8 hours all I want to do is rest. I sleep 9 to 12 hours a day some times more if I feel horrible. If I sleep less I can't get though my work day. I have really bad pain behide my eyes making it really have to concentrate on anything. I'm really thirsty for water and urinate more than most people. I pee clear almost always. My stools change allot but I get the runs often. I eat a lot of fryed foods. Sweets and fruit make me feel worse. I don't drink pop or coffee cause they make me feel worse. I'm would not blame this on depression because on good days I'm happy with my life. When I feel like crap I don't feel motivated to do anything. I googled a lot already and it sounds like diabetes but my a1c test from the lab results said levels were normal. I wanted to post a few places before I go to the doctors and demand a fasting glucose test. So please help me out and tell me what you think.

I get angry at small things and cant control it. I even get violent once angry. I wish I could control my angle but I cant.

Hypnotherapist, DCS, BSIC, Advanced Trainee of Transactional Analysis, Advanced Skills in Counselling
Psychologist,
Anger is a healthy emotion if expressed in an appropriate manner. It helps to protect your personal boundaries and indicates that some of your needs are not being met. Your anger over small issues suggests that you have become habitual to it and need anger management. When you get angry and violent then you are suppressing someone else by showing your power and that is counter productive and anti social behaviour. Please take counselling sessions to take control of your anger.
