Hello sir. I have very stressed. When you take tension in my stomach pain start and I goes weak. I do not eat food.
I have been taking one risdone plus and oleanz 5 for 27 days. I'm suffering from anxiety and depression. I don't see any improvement. How long will it take to get result?
I am in a state of mental stress, my hair have started greying. I think 20-30% have greyed and I am only 25 years old. I feel depressed, frustrated, alone. I also feel lethargic. I don't feel the urge to work, I have Insomnia. Can you help me out?
Hello, I can't understand the problem I am facing right now. I am explaining here what is happening with me. Generally Problem arises in between 3 pm to 6 pm. I think may be it's related to mind. During this period I feel lonely, depressed and fear. flashes of memory comes in my mind and disturbs my mind so much. I remember some moments of my past life randomly and I can't control myself, it feels like I want to go in that past again, I want to live that moment again. Sometimes it makes me cry, I can't control it and it makes me fear. At that time I feel totally lonely and under pressure. I can't stay that time, feels like I am in some jail and want to come out of it, want to go back in that moments once more and I fear what will happen next, what if I will loose my friends, what if I will go away from family, even I fear very little things without any reason. My breath increases and my body can't sit calmly, it feels like I want to cry so much and don't want to stay at one place.
My father is a schizophrenic, he has been admitted 3 times in 3 years at Bhopal memorial hospital and research center. Since he is suffering from this disease he barely knows about illusions and accepts them as reality. He never takes the prescribed medicines suggested by doctor as he always has two pictures in his mind 1.Either it's some planning to give him any poison 2.He is fine and do not need any medicine. Now the issue is recently he is facing trouble with urine related issue. He is unable to pee in adequate amount and in proportion to amount of his water or liquid intake. He told me that he feels that he has to pee but is unable to do properly. So is it a normal infection that has nothing to do with schizophrenia or is it a common characteristic with schizophrenia? Can it be a UTI? What would be the point of consultation in this case a psychiatrist or a urologist? Is this curable or not? And what would be the best way of Making him take his medicines?
I have a problem in my mind nothing is more safe means when I am study anything I will loose it after a half and hour. Its be like a fool to study hard and gaining is less. Please help me? How to diagnosis it?

5 Ways To Remove Stress Instantly
Feeling the blues once in a while is natural for the kind of hectic lives we lead. But feeling stressed and burned out deeply affects on our body, mind and soul. When you feel stressed, you need to take measures that can help you cope up. Something as simple as saying ‘I love you’ in the mirror once in a morning turns around the way you approach your day.
Try these stress reducing tips to rejuvenate yourselves immediately.
1) Meditate- Its the best way out. It eases anxiety, which is the culprit behind those stressed out moments. All you have to do is just close your eyes, focus your attention on positive thoughts or repeatedly chanting 'Om' which has a vibrational impact. Don’t let negative thoughts distract you.
2) Inhale Deeply- There are several occasions when you might not be able to mediate. In such a case, simply start to inhale through your nose, bring it to your abdomen and let it make way through your body slowly. Deep breathing can also reduce the instances of blood pressure.
3) Laugh Out Loud- Laughing can reduce cortisol, a hormone responsible for stress. You can watch your favourite comedy show, a sitcom or simply look for a few videos online.
4) Listen To Music- Simple but effective. Listening to music can lower your blood pressure, heart rate as well as anxiety. Go ahead and create a playlist of your favourite songs or music. And if you fancy, try to sing on the top of your lungs too!
5) Exercise- Exercising has too many incredible benefits. One of them is easing depression and anxiety. Deal with stress by exercising a few minutes every day. Ideally, 30 minutes a day is what you should aim for.

As with other skills and milestones, the age at which kids learn language and start talking can very. Many babies happily babble" mama" and" dada" well before their first birthday, and most toddlers can say about 20 words by the time they're 18 months old. But what if a 2-year-old isn't really talking yet or only puts two words together?
Knowing what's" normal" and what's not in speech and language development can help parents figure out if there's cause for concern or if their child is right on schedule.
How are speech and language different?
Speech is the verbal expression of language and includes articulation (the way sounds and words are formed).
Language is the entire system of giving and getting information in a meaningful way. It's understanding and being understood through communication — verbal, nonverbal, and written.
What are speech or language delays?
Speech and language problems differ, but often overlap. For example:
A child with a language delay might pronounce words well but only be able to put two words together.
A child with a speech delay might use words and phrases to express ideas but be difficult to understand.
When do kids develop speech and language skills?
The stages of speech and language development are the same for all kids, but the age at which kids develop them can vary a lot.
During routine speech therapist/ doctors look to see if kids have reached developmental milestones at these ages:
Before 12 months
By the first birthday, babies should be using their voices to relate to their environment. Cooing and babbling are early stages of speech development. At around 9 months, babies begin to string sounds together, use different tones of speech, and say words like" mama" and" dada" (without really understanding what those words mean).
Before 12 months of age, babies also should be paying attention to sound and starting to recognize names of common objects (bottle, binky, etc.). Babies who watch intently but don't react to sound could be showing signs of hearing loss
By 12 to 15 months
Kids this age should have a wide range of speech sounds in their babbling (like p, b, m, d, or n), begin to imitate sounds and words they hear, and often say one or more words (not including" mama" and" dada"). Nouns usually come first, like" baby" and" ball" they also should be able to understand and follow simple one-step directions (" please give me the toy" etc.).
From 18 to 24 months
Most (but not all) toddlers can say about 20 words by 18 months and 50 or more words by the time they turn 2. By age 2, kids are starting to combine two words to make simple sentences, such as" baby crying" or" daddy big" a 2-year-old should be able to identify common objects (in person and in pictures); point to eyes, ears, or nose when asked; and follow two-step commands (" please pick up the toy and give it to me" for example).
From 2 to 3 years
Parents often see huge gains in their child's speech. A toddler's vocabulary should increase (to too many words to count) and he or she should routinely combine three or more words into sentences.
Comprehension also should increase — by age 3, a child should begin to understand what it means to" put it on the table" or" put it under the bed" kids also should begin to identify colors and understand descriptive concepts (big versus little, for example).
What are the signs of a speech or language delay?
A baby who doesn't respond to sound or who isn't vocalizing should be seen by a doctor right away. But often, it's hard for parents to know if their child is just taking a little longer to reach a speech or language milestone, or if there's a problem that needs medical attention.
Here are some things to watch for. Call your doctor if your child:
By 12 months: isn't using gestures, such as pointing or waving bye-bye
By 18 months: prefers gestures over vocalizations to communicate
By 18 months: has trouble imitating sounds
Has trouble understanding simple verbal requests
By 2 years: can only imitate speech or actions and doesn't produce words or phrases spontaneously
By 2 years: says only certain sounds or words repeatedly and can't use oral language to communicate more than his or her immediate needs
By 2 years: can't follow simple directions
By 2 years: has an unusual tone of voice (such as raspy or nasal sounding)
Is more difficult to understand than expected for his or her age:
Parents and regular caregivers should understand about half of a child's speech at 2 years and about three quarters at 3 years.
By 4 years old, a child should be mostly understood, even by people who don't know the child.
What causes speech or language delays?
A speech delay in an otherwise normally developing child might be due to an oral impairment, like problems with the tongue or palate (the roof of the mouth). And a short frenulum (the fold beneath the tongue) can limit tongue movement for speech production.
Many kids with speech delays have oral-motor problems. These happen when there's a problem in the areas of the brain responsible for speech, making it hard to coordinate the lips, tongue, and jaw to produce speech sounds. These kids also might have other oral-motor problems, such as feeding difficulties.
Hearing problems are also commonly related to delayed speech. That's why an audiologistshould test a child's hearing whenever there's a speech concern. Kids who have trouble hearing may have trouble articulating as well as understanding, imitating, and using language.
Ear infection especially, chronic infection, can affect hearing. Simple ear infections that have been treated, though, should not affect speech. And, as long as there is normal hearing in at least one ear, speech and language will develop normally.
How are speech or language delays diagnosed?
If you or your doctor think that your child might have a problem, it's important to get an early evaluation by a speech_ language therapistyou can find a speech-language pathologist on your own, or ask your health care provider to refer you to one.
The speech-language pathologist will evaluate your child's speech and language skills within the context of total development. The pathologist will do standardized tests and look for milestones in speech and language development.
The speech-language pathologist will also assess:
What your child understands (called receptive language)
What your child can say (called expressive language)
If your child is attempting to communicate in other ways, such as pointing, head shaking, gesturing, etc.
Sound development and clarity of speech
Your child's oral-motor status (how the mouth, tongue, palate, etc, work together for speech as well as eating and swallowing)
Based on the test results, the speech-language pathologist might recommend speech therapy for your child.
How does speech therapy help?
The speech therapist will work with your child to improve speech and language skills, and show you what to do at home to help your child.
What can parents do?
Parental involvement is an important part of helping kids who have a speech or language problem.
Here are a few ways to encourage speech development at home:
Spend a lot of time communicating with your child. Even during infancy — talk, sing, and encourage imitation of sounds and gestures.
Read to your child. Start reading when your child is a baby. Look for age-appropriate soft or board books or picture books that encourage kids to look while you name the pictures. Try starting with a classic book (such as pat the bunny, in which your child imitates the patting motion) or books with textures that kids can touch. Later, let your child point to recognizable pictures and try to name them. Then move on to nursery rhymes, which have rhythmic appeal. Progress to predictable books (such as brown bear, brown bear, what do you see?) that let kids anticipate what happens. Your little one may even start to memorize favorite stories.
Use everyday situations. To reinforce your child's speech and language, talk your way through the day. For example, name foods at the grocery store, explain what you're doing as you cook a meal or clean a room, point out objects around the house, and as you drive, point out sounds you hear. Ask questions and acknowledge your child's responses (even when they're hard to understand). Keep things simple, but avoid" baby talk"
Recognizing and treating speech and language delays early on is the best approach. With proper therapy and time, your child will be better able to communicate with you and the rest of the world.
