I suppose you are retired. In that case you may have a lot of spare time and worry about whether the family thinks about you often. This is your insecurity at this age. Have faith and trust god that he will take care of them; and the lack of contact does not mean that something is wrong with them. Many youngsters are really busy, whether studying or working. With an over-active mind and lots of time on your hand, you can spread a bit of unnecessary panic to them. If contact with your children is so important to your wellbeing, then call them up yourself. If not you could also tell them that you worry a lot and that you would like them to keep regular contact with you. There are a lot of things you can do at your age to keep yourself busy by joining likeminded and homogeneous age groups in your locality that have very interesting activities. For example, you could join a book reading club and you may then find that you do not have time to ponder on these negative thoughts.

I have stammering problem since I was child. I talk normally without stammering when I talks to friends or someone I know, but the problem starts when I talk to any strangers or front of many people on stage due to nervousness. It also happens when someone suddenly ask a question. It's really very big problem for me, I just want to overcome it. So if you please tell me what to do, I will be very obliged. Thank you & looking for your reply.

Speaking situations which are in your comfort zone, you will not face a problem. But when you are stepping out from your comfort zone stammering happens. This happens to all. But problem arise when you fail to cope with the situation. So you need to strengthen your coping mechanism. Speech therapy will help.

I do not chew my food enough. I always forget to do it. What to do? What happens if food is not chewed enough?

Dear lybrate user. Chewing food helps it to mix with saliva and the food also gets a pasty form. Saliva has many digestive components in it. Therefore chewing the food I always considered better. But, even if you do not chew enough cooked food, there may not be much difference. Our digestive system is strong enough to digest many things even without cooking. Take care.

Your friend attempted to end her life by consuming phenol. There may be possibilities of many reasons behind it: She may be suffering from depression, that everything around seemed dark to her & she saw no reason to stay alive & she planned the act. Or it may be that she is under some stress in her life with which she is not able to cope with & decided to end her life. A possibility of her attempt being an accidental act should also be looked into. It may also be an impulsive act which she had done in sudden anger, & had not planned it previously. Her attempt may also be her way of revolting against someone or some situation she was not happy with. Get her evaluated by a Psychiatrist, who will make the proper diagnosis regarding her mental state & then prescribe her medicines and/or advice her counseling sessions accordingly. Along with, she needs lots of encouragement & emotional support from her friends, well wishers & near ones to overcome this state. Encourage her to talk out her problems & ventilate her feelings, lead an active & healthy lifestyle & be optimistic with life. Also encourage her to evaluate situations practically & rationally, discuss stressful situations if any with well wishers or seek professional help in solving them, read motivational books & quotes to imbibe optimism within, & make her realize that life is precious & one is gifted with life for once only.

I always keep thinking about something like my past, people who hurted me, negative thoughts

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Well your past will always be there especially if there are impactful memories. It is good when you learn from it, then it will move out of your memory on its own. Those negative thoughts and people who have hurt you will come back until you resolve them. Note down all the past bad memories and deal with each one individually with someone like a counselor. Over time these memories will gradually fade. If you are matured enough, you can even drop those events as forgotten and forgiven. Forgiveness is more important for your sake than for the perpetrator’s sake, so just go ahead and do it fast. If you think that those people may be amenable to your expressions of distress done directly to them, then do so. Otherwise just express yourself to a counselor and get going. You may even write down all the bad memories on a piece of paper and burn it down as though you have finished with those events and people. That will also help purge it out of system. These are the ghosts of the past that will continue to haunt you, until it has been dealt with adequately.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. Unwanted negative events are known ro cause mental stress leading to anxiety and depression. Understanding the normalcy and generalized pattern of such symptoms can help you overcome. You don't need any medicines for now. I suggest online counselling and cognitive behavior therapy.

Dear, I feel 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 going through grief reaction, which is normal after loss of a loved one. Time is the healer for the emotional and behavioral changes, however if your depression is severe enough to affect you in a significant manner, kindly consult a psychiatrist for short term antidepressant medication, depending on the complaints. There are stages in grief shock, denial, acceptance, bargaining, depression, resolution. If the depressed mood is very much, consult a psychiatrist and take a course of antidepressants. The recovery will be hastened.

Hi I am kamal 24 years old. Its been 3 years I am on medication. My doctor said you are suffering from social anixiety. The medician help me to keep calm and relax. But communication is my big problem. I am working with international bpo where I need excellent communication to handle the u. S. Clients. But I cannot think clearley I always face problem while speaking. My thought process suddenly stucks and I feel I dont have anything to speak. But there are days when I speak with great confidence and handle the clients in good manner. It suddenly changes to other side where I face the same problem which I described above. I really need to resolve it. This is the big issue in my life please advice. My medications are buprone 300xl. Buspin10 mg. Vitamin capsule and fludec 20 mg capsule. Please advise.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

The big mistake you are making is that you are not also in therapy. All the issues you describe are exactly suitable to be sought from counseling support. You should have a review of the medication too anyway after you mention these symptoms. The combination of therapy and medication is ideal for a proper recovery. Please attend a personality development course that highlights the five-factorial approach: physical, emotional, intellectual, social and spiritual quotients. If you develop in these five areas, you will certainly improve your confidence. Some personality courses emphasize and focus on public speaking to a large extend. It is not too bad an idea but it is a little narrow in perspective. You could instead attend a toast masters club, which does the same thing in a more organized manner. Apart from regular and aerobic exercise, you must also visit a gym to build a good body image. You can go for personal grooming classes too. While regular vigorous exercise develops your body, the regimen will also enlarge your heart and help you handle stressful situations much more competently than others who don? t exercise. Dress well, eat well, sleep well and conduct yourself well in social circles to build confidence. Perform well in your work, and feel good about your achievements. You could also go for hypnosis sessions to build your self-image from within. In addition, indulge spiritual wellness, faith and prayer that will boost your confidence really well. Emotional wellness will take care of the fear factor, which is your big problem. There are lots of affirmations, if said three times at a time, everyday, they will gradually strengthen your concept of yourself and your confidence. Yoga and meditation will also build you up. Speaking to a counselor will give you personal assistance in pursuing these changes. If the change in mood fluctuates from extremes of low to euphoria, you must report this to the doctor, immediately. You are young and a lot can be done only if you cooperate and combine medication with therapy.

Sir, I want to stop smoking please suggest me. And when I was thinking not to smoke. I cant control my self and I am going to sleep.

MD - Psychiatry, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Patna
Thanks for asking your query at this forum. I want to educate you a little about addiction of smoking. Smoking provides instant nicotine to the body which is a potent neuro-activator. It gives a pleasurable kick to mind and thus a person wants to smoke again and again. There is a strong desire (craving) to smoke if person abstain from it for few hours/days. Person may have some discontinuation symptoms in the form of restlessness, anxiety, irritability etc. Due to craving and discontinuation symptoms a person can not easily discontinue smoking. You should gradually reduce the frequency of smoking. You may try throwing cigarette in half before finishing, so as to reduce the amount of nicotine. You may also take help of psychiatrist who may prescribe you few medicines for de-addiction like nicotine lozenges/chewing gums, tab champix etc to reduce the habit of smoking gradually. I wish you all the best.

Hi lybrate-user, please don't quit it all of a sudden. The rule is to gradually taper it and then discontinue it. Please consult your doctor, tell him your current state and if you are feeling better tell him to reduce the dose. You have to complete the full course of the medication otherwise you will have elapse. So don't take nay risk. You can consider changing your doctor also.

Good Morning ~ It is not unusual in south INDIA for men to get married to their cousins (i.e. Your maternal uncles daughter or your paternal aunts daughter), however a relationship between you and your cousin sister (i.e. Your maternal aunts daughter and your paternal uncles son) are forbidden in south INDIAn HINDU culture. If you believe that you can fit into these cultural traditions I recommend that you consult your elders in the family for the same. I hope you feel better with the solution to your problems. If you continue to have any issues or questions, please let me know.

Dear, memory and mind power consists of understanding, storage and recollection of information you learn. Understanding depends on concentration. The more creative you are on doing tasks or reading, the more you understand. Storage and recollection depends on your understanding and how well you review what you have learned. Repetition and review of material learned and other tasks provides easy recollection. You can improve your concentration and total brain power with the help of green leafy vegetables, exercise, creative activities, number puzzles like sudoku etc. Hard work is the key to learning and recollection.

Indecisiveness signifies significant underlying anxiety. So please tell me, do you feel worried all the time about about multiple issues ranging from day to day small problems to slightly bigger ones also? how is your sleep? in addition loss of self confidence also signifies anxiety. Now the solution to anxiety problems is a proper course of medicines & certain lifestyle changes ranging from as simple things as meditation & daily 30 minutes jogging to more complex things as structured diary writing, thought recording etc. But for all these to happen, you first need to describe your symptoms in detail so that I can give you proper help & a fast relief. Good luck!

I'm suffering from some psychological problems. I'm always having negative thoughts and sometimes I just want to leave everyone and commit suicide. I'm 19 years old female and I can't even study and I don't want to go to the college I just want to be alone every time. I lost my dad in my childhood and now I'm in a relationship from 3 years. But I'm not happy with it but I don't want to leave him I'm getting very serious for even small things. My over thinking was killing me I'm very depressed but I can't consult the doctor so please suggest me what I have to do. Due to this mental illness I'm also getting weak day by day. I don't even want to talk with friends or family members.

I don't understand why you can't consult a doctor. Sometimes this condition can be quite serious and a doctor's intervention is necessary. I think when you have suicidal ideation, a doctor's visit does become mandatory and is serious enough. Even if you don't want to meet with a doctor, at least visit with a counselor. Counselors are really good friends and you will enjoy the experience. At your age this claim is serious. If you have depression then there are some major ramifications to take into account. I believe there may be some genetic predisposition or there has been some childhood issue, related to anger, that needs urgent attention. 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.
