For 2 consecutive days now my uncle seems to zone out and doesn't realize where he is. He starts laughing all of a sudden and we need to nudge him a few times before he snaps out of it. What could be causing this? He is approximately 64 year old.

He is probably going into age-related mental disturbance and apart from nudging him back to the reality you must engage him with something more stimulating than what is occupying him internally. You should take him to a psychiatrist immediately and get an assessment for more specific diagnosis and prescription. The earlier the intervention, the better the prognosis. He must also exercise at a level suitable to his age and approved by his physician. A lot of mind engaging activities and exercises will be of great benefit for him. Take him out on social visits and have people visit him too, especially people who are known to him. If he is neglected he can fast become dysfunctional too. Because of his age there may be stressors peculiar to him and it may be useful if a counselor could extract them out for treatment. Also his constitution and lowering defense mechanisms may be in question due to advancing seniority. Building that up may be an impossible task but worth the try. If you keep his mind occupied and develop his physical health in tandem, you will see some remarkable changes and stability.

The only difference between psychologist and psychiatrist is, that a psychiatrist can prescribe medications if required, while a psychologist can not. If you need to consult, you can consult a psychiatrist.

I am 51 years high tension and not able to concentrate in my work and job, Smoking as increased and want to stop all this. What should I do.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
The tension means that you are not handling your emotions well. Meet with a counselor to sort that out. Your smoking will give you a false sense of control because nicotine is a mood modifier​. You have to quit cold turkey because the body and mind will torture you endlessly while attempting a reduction in smoking. The tobacco tar in cigarette smoke lines your lung with huge patches that make that portion dysfunctional. Your oxygen carrying capacity is jeopardized, and breathing is impinged on. But don’t be discouraged because it is not too late even now to reverse all the ill-effects of smoking. I don’t know what other organs could be damaged but do go for a thorough medical check-up to assess the effects of your abuse. Regarding improving your lungs, do a lot of aerobic exercise breathing through your nostrils only. Then there are a lot of deep breathing exercises in Yoga which you can learn too. Deep breathing cleanses your system and lungs and restores it to good health. Deep breathing uses the 80% of the lungs which are not normally used in normal breathing and even when exerting yourself. The greatest effect is in the lungs because this substance is processed through the respiratory system directly through the lung surface. When quitting, you must take one day at a time; though you must give up all smoking at once, and promptly. If you look too far ahead you will get discouraged and will give up. If you sit and count the number of days you have given up, that will also focus too much on achievement. You must focus on the here and now, on that day to be precise. After all quitting is not that easy due to many factors. So even if you fail one day, you must try and try again. Very few people succeed in their first attempt. Your persistence will eventually pay off. The urge to discontinue is hampered by many factors but the worst of them is the conditioning. In fact, these conditions can exist all through the day, unlike other addictions. But your desire to want to stop is the most important factor. It is important to find out about the ill-effects of smoking to have a reason that alarms you about continuing the habit. The information is really scary but true and you must remind yourself about this every day. The nicotine in tobacco smoke stimulates the heartbeat to raise the blood pressure in no time at all. So you must avoid it like the plague: it is just very bad medicine for you. In fact, it is highly toxic too. You will need to stop smoking or consuming any tobacco related items with immediate effect. You should start vigorous exercises, gradually increasing it over a period of time. Do deep breathing exercises every time you feel like smoking (try Yoga), and replace the oral urge with some healthy food substitute to satiate the need. You may also take hard candy or chew gum. If the urge is too strong, then use nicotine gums and nicotine patches, for a little while until the smoking drive reduces, substantially. You may also join Smokers Anonymous in your city where the support is really extraordinary for like-minded people who are also in the same situation. Keep yourself occupied or engaged with interesting activities during the times when it is most tempting. Keep the company of non-smokers for some time i.e. At least for the first 21 days. Above all announce it to everyone that you have quit smoking. Here’s a piece of very good advice: even if you accidentally/willfully take a cigarette, it is not the end of the world – you can start the cessation all over again. You must persevere with the best support until you defeat this addiction. Counseling is very useful in the initial stages and when temptations are at their highest. You could also join twitter2quit program and enjoy its success to give up smoking.

You are very unlikely to suffer from any hormonal issues at this age. Depression? Yes. You must go and meet with a counselor immediately and if that person advises that you meet with a doctor you must do so and cooperate to your utmost. Please visit these professionals along with your parents. 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. The headaches need to be investigated for any medical causes or it could be related to depression es[pecially if you have an anger-related depression.

I have been smoking for 3 years. On an avg at 3 cigarettes a day. What would have been its impact on my health.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Fortunately, almost all the damage by smoking can be reversed, if and when you stop and take measures to lead a healthy life of exercise, diet and rest. It is difficult to quantify the extent of damage but effects could be felt in your stamina, skin wrinkling, lung capacity, heart strain, eye damage, sexual erectile capacity, tooth decay and tartar buildup, foul breath, damage to the celia lining your throat, brain cells, and for some people the early stages of cancer promoting conditions, and a host of other problems. You are advised to stop immediately and abruptly.

Dear lybrate user, I can imagine how sad, frustrated and hopeless you might be feeling presently. At the age of 25 if you have incurred loss, then that means you started you business at a very young age. And that shows that you are courageous. Unfortunately you have incurred loss, but that is part and parcel of having your own business. Do not get discouraged. Try to find out what went wrong. Make a note in your mind, not the repeat your mistake. Please understand that you are an engineer. Use your knowledge and skill to think about various options. Keep trying harder for job. At the same time, keep dreaming about having your own business again. Take calculated risks. Take some guidance from experienced people. We all go through ups and downs in life. Use your courage to bounce back. Remeber, life keeps changing constantly. These difficult days will pass. Keep trying harder till you succeed. You are only 25. There is whole life ahead of you. Take challeges head on. All the best.

I am suffering from depression and mujhe chalte samay mud ke dekhne ki aadat hai.
Hello, There are many aspects of depression, the more of them you have the more likely you are to have a clinical depression. Some patients feel severely depressed and suicidal. If you have these feelings you should go to the emergency department immediately. Other things that people with depression can feel are sadness, low energy, lack of motivation, poor sleep, irritability, weight gain or loss, poor self image and sometimes even a lack of touch with reality. The more of these symptoms you have the more likely it is that you have serious depression. Treatments for depression include medications, counseling and exercise. Again the more of these you do the better your chance for a successful treatment. Good luck to you,

Hello sir, I am 22 years 8 months old. I am having a problem with my confidence. I feel like i'm very afraid to do something even though tasks are very silly. I try to convince myself a lot like there is nothing fearful in whatever I want to do. But I am not able to convince myself. Examples: 1) I shiver a lot in the interviews even though i'm quite good at speaking. I'm sure I can communicate well. I tried to convince myself a lot but still problem persist. 2) my Girl Friend is avoiding me (It hurts me a lot). And just wanted to know the reason why she had done this to me. I want convince her but I couldn't convince myself to start the conversation. One day I forcefully tried but brain stopped working. Couldn't get right words out of my mouth. Please advise me something. Because of this I couldn't achieve anything great in my life. I feel very low and weak whenever something is bothering me. I read inspiration books and all the motivational stuff a lot. I try to fool my mind nothing worked. Its not like I fail in every situation. Whenever I find something troublesome in my thoughts I just could not overwrite it to be brave or to act like brave. Thank you for letting me share my problem at least.

I can see a lot of initiatives in your behaviours, which I could rarely see in many individuals of your age group. But, the problem is, may be, due to performance anxiety which hinders your performance and thereby reducing your confidence level. Let me give you a suggestions to overcone your problem. 1. First thing is, you have to understand and accept the fact that everybody at your age has to go through such kind of anxieties in their life. Even officers holding higher ranks experience the same anxiety reactions when facing their superiors for further advancement. The fact is, you are exaggerating the shortcomings. 2. Learn and practice some yoga techniques like asanas, pranayama and meditation from a qualified teacher. This will help you manage your physical arousal due to anxiety such, as rapid heart beat and pulse rate, increased breathing pattern racing of thought etc. To a desirable extent and therby help you remain calm in such situations. 3. Set smaller goals you are trying to achieve, and mentally rehearse a particular activity again and again, for ex. Your interview situation. Also practice mock interviews with the help of your friends/parents or even your teachers. This will help you to face the actual situation in a relaxed manner to a great extent. 4. If you achieve and reach a good position in your career life, your girl friend will automatically fall in line with you (because of your higher confidence level and her increased confidence level too on you). Until then, do not bother about her. All the best.

Hi lybrate-user, Welcome to Lybrate. I understand your problem and I feel you need counseling/therapy for your issues. First and foremost practice mindfulness breathing daily as many times as you can for 10-15 minutes. The primary goal of mindful breathing is simply a calm, nonjudging awareness, allowing thoughts and feelings to come and go without getting caught up in them. Sit comfortably, with your eyes closed and your spine reasonably straight. Bring your attention to your breathing. Imagine that you have a balloon in your tummy. Every time you breathe in, the balloon inflates. Each time you breathe out, the balloon deflates. Notice the sensations in your abdomen as the balloon inflates and deflates. Your abdomen rising with the in-breath, and falling with the out-breath. Thoughts will come into your mind, and that’s okay, because that’s just what the human mind does. Simply notice those thoughts, then bring your attention back to your breathing. Likewise, you can notice sounds, physical feelings, and emotions, and again, just bring your attention back to your breathing. You don’t have to follow those thoughts or feelings, don’t judge yourself for having them, or analyse them in any way. It’s okay for the thoughts to be there. Just notice those thoughts, and let them drift on by, bringing your attention back to your breathing. Whenever you notice that your attention has drifted off and is becoming caught up in thoughts or feelings, simply note that the attention has drifted, and then gently bring the attention back to your breathing. It's okay and natural for thoughts to enter into your awareness, and for your attention to follow them. No matter how many times this happens, just keep bringing your attention back to your breathing.

Dear lybrate-user, thanks for the question. I went through the question and I do understand your problems. I do not see any nerve problems except that of anxiety disorder. You are having anxiety disorder and quite naturally you are going to face many symptoms as you mentioned here. We need to find the basic cause of your anxiety disorder and treat the cause. Anxiety disorder is usually treated with a combination of psychotherapy, life style change and relaxation therapy. If done correctly, success is for sure. Please consult a psychologist. I hope my answer is satisfatory. I am further available for clarifications. Take care.

Dreams is one of the automatic defense mechanism that helps in ventilating our unfulfilled desires in our unconscious mind thereby acting as a stress buster. Do not worry about its effects till you feel that you have confusion between dreams and real life.
