You are first of fooling around with medications: if the doctor has prescribed it then it was for a good reason. If you have attacks in the future the doctor will certainly give you more. Panic attacks are fear based, and you will tend to exaggerate the response to the stimulus. What happened when these attacks started may have some bearing on your state. The other possibility is that your constitution may have undergone a bit of change favoring the negative side. If you have been on prolonged stress quite unaware to yourself, then it is possible that that stress may have lowered your defenses. Any which way you look at it, your response to fear is not normal and therefore the panic. Work with a counselor: medication is not enough to help you process these emotions and to deal with it so that it does not escalate in this manner. You will probably not show any signs of medical problems because the effects have not yet reached physical proportions. It will though, if this situation is not brought under control. The quicker you work on this in therapy, the easier life is going to be. Constant and persistent stress will lower your immune system that you may develop other complications. You seem keen to sort this out and that is good motivation. Now work at it with hammer and tongs and sort out the fear. For your constitution I advise a lot of exercise, meditation, eat healthily, sleep adequately, pray with faith, love people and yourself, and be positive. Combine medication with counseling and you will get best results. If you want to be free of medication then in counseling you will develop new skills and techniques to deal with life's issues and can come off of medicines for good.

Loss of interest, decreased concentration and attention, feeling low and disturbed sleep or appetite are some of the signs of depression. Consult a psychiatrist who will assess you in detail. If you are feeling suicidal or hopeless, seek professional help immediately. Try some relaxation techniques like yoga, meditation and deep breathing. Indulge in hobbies. Spend time with people close to you.

Hello lybrate-user, change yourself. Unless and until you change your thoughts nothing can help you. For that be confident in you. Be sure of your abilities and your weak points. Negative thoughts come out of your poor self confidence and your fear to life. Don't get feared, your life is in you, put maximum effort to come forward.

Please remember that Smoking is toxic to your body , mind and well-being. The earlier you can stop this habit , the healthier it can be for you. The lower taste and sinful habit of smoking can be stopped by replacing it with the higher taste. Simply read nice books which give you a higher meaning to life than chemicals in smoking. To know further, you can ask me

Dear lybrate-user, When we are under stress due to examinations or increased pressure to excel, one can suffer from feelings of anxiousness or feelings of depression. I would advise you to firstly not pay much heed to the online depression test, they are not reliable. Can I also ask you to start practising deep breathing to help you manage your stress and anxiety. This will help you regulate your appetite and also help with concentration. Pls seek help from a psychologist or counsellor who can support you further. Also, try to inculcate some exercise in your routine. I hope you feel better soon.

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, consume less of fat and use olive oil instead, 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 is a new exercise called Super Brain Yoga, which is done by holding the right earlobe with your left thumb and index finger, and the left earlobe with your right hand’s thumb and index finger. In this position, you must squat down and rise up and do this for five minutes every day. There is 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 too. The following foods do help too: Blueberries, walnuts, turmeric, Spinach, tomatoes, broccoli, acorn squash, green tea, oily fish, boiled egg, turkey, apples, oatmeal, leafy greens, lentils, pumpkin seeds, avocado, cinnamon, thyme, sunflower seeds, and red wine. Avoid sugar and junk food.

Sufficient sleep, diet and relaxation are required for physical and mental fitness. Identify and release your negative thoughts. Replace them with positive ones. Stop yourself from repetitive thinking. Distract yourself by doing what you like most i. E. Listening music, reading, writing, drawing etc. If the stress persists more than two weeks, get help from a psychologist to release your stress.

Hello Doctor, I am 22 years old boy 1 year ago I faced a shock in my life that lead me to depression. psychiatrist advised me some medicine. I took for 15 days but after 15 days a local doctor advised me to give up that medicine as I could be addicted to it. Now after 1 year my life is almost alright. But still some times I feel restless for 1-3 minutes that's also very minor. I think I have recovered 90% depression as my muscle pain is also gone. Am I doing right.

At present you are almost symptom free- that is very good. Still, I would suggest you to see a psychologist, provided you can afford. Sittings with a psychologist will help you identify the source of your stress symptoms and once you are able to identify the root cause it can be treated permanently without the fear or apprehension that some problem can crop up anytime again.

I'm a 28 years old girl, unmarried. I'm addicted to smoking. I started it very casually 2 yrs. First with 1 cigarette, then 2, then 5 and gradually the number of cigarette kept increasing. Now I smoke 20 cigarettes per day. I don't have any emotional issues nor do I have now. Just The fun part became an addiction. Now I want to quit desperately. I tried many times but every time it resulted in failure. The withdrawal symptoms are too much to ask for. When I don't smoke for 6-7 hrs I feel anger and rage in me and after that a period of depression which lasts. I read many articles on Internet about quitting. I tried every non medical trick but I couldn't deal with the withdrawal symptoms with enough motivation. If I can get some help or any good medicine which will help me quit it will be helpful.

Dear friend, congrats you have a strong willpower, but some time you loose your confidence. I assure you that nothing will go wrong when you quit smoking. This is a false belief that withdrawal of smoking causes any damage. But what happens when you quit, a low confidence again provokes to restart. Here what should be done, just take few deep breaths and a glass of cold water and lemon juice and sip this slowly. Spend 10, _15 min. Try to engage your mind in any work, play with mobile, or just finish your incomplete work. Set a target for one day only, don't. Go in that surrounding where you use to smoke. Initially you will feel lonely ness but this can not harm. Spend the day. Tell your self about this and you will find a little victory. Just continue the program. I don't want to suggest any medicine right now because I want to know your experience. Start today and tell your progress to guide further. I am with you and always ready to help. When people can quit why cannot. You.

7 Ways to Remember Anything Research-based strategies to boost your memory and keep it strong 7 Strategies for Remembering 1.Become interested in what you're learning. We're all better remembering what interests us. Few people, for example, have a difficult time remembering the names of people they find attractive. If you're not intrinsically interested in what you're learning or trying to remember, you must find a way to become so. 2.Find a way to leverage your visual memory. You'll be surprised by how much more this will enable you to remember. For example, imagine you're at a party and are introduced to five people in quick succession. How can you quickly memorize their names? Pick out a single defining visual characteristic of each person and connect it to a visual representation of their name, preferably through an action of some kind. Remember: Memory is predominantly visual. 3.Create a mental memory tree. If you're trying to memorize a large number of facts, find a way to relate them in your mind visually with a memory tree. Construct big branches first, then leaves. Branches and leaves should carry labels that are personally meaningful to you in some way, and the organization of the facts ("leaves") should be logical. 4.Associate what you're trying to learn with what you already know. It seems the more mental connections we have to a piece of information, the more successful we'll be in remembering it. This is why using mnemonics. Write out the items to be memorized over and over and over. 5.When reading for retention, summarize each paragraph in the margin. This requires you to think about what you're reading, recycle it, and teach it to yourself again. Even take the concepts you're learning and reason forward with them; apply them to imagined novel situations, which creates more neural connections to reinforce the memory. 6.Do most of your studying in the afternoon. Though you may identify yourself as a "morning person" or "evening person" at least one Study. Suggests your ability to memorize isn't influenced as much by what time of day you perceive yourself to be most alert but by the time of day you actually study—afternoon appearing to be the best. 7.Get adequate sleep to consolidate and retain memories. Not just at night after you've studied but the day, you study as well. Far better to do this than to stay up cramming all night for an exam. No medicines can help, really.

The end of a relationship often feels like the end of the world. After all the time and energy you have invested in it, it is very painful when it gets over. Keep in mind that life is full of ups and downs; nothing is permanent. The pain you feel today will go away with time. Give yourself time to heal. Give time, time. In the meanwhile don't isolate yourself from your friends and family. Confide in someone you are comfortable with. Make a list of life goals, and plan how to achieve them. Relationships are an important part of your life, but they are not everything. Spend time with those close to you, indulge in some enjoyable activities. Keep yourself busy. Slowly you will see that there is a lot to life. However if you are feeling suicidal, consult a psychiatrist immediately. Don't wait to feel worse.

Dear lybrate user. I do not understand. There is no such brain tonic in the given generic name or brand name. In any case, you should not use brain tonics without the consent of a neurologist. Memory and mind power depends on three important factors. They are understanding, retention and recollection. Your brain stores information according what you perceive and it also depends on past experience. Understanding is the key. The more better understand, the more better will be the storage and retention. Once the brain retain it properly and stores in someplace where it can be retrieved easily, the more easy for it to recollect. So the basic step in remembrance is understanding. Make sure you understand whatever you study. There are" effective learning techniques" to help you. Physical exercise, outdoor games, indoor games, entertainment, hobbies etc also play an important part in improving brain power. Include green leafy vegetables, fruits, nuts etc in your daily diet. Make sure to play brain games like sudoku atleast once in a week. All the above, together, contributes to keep your brain sharp and healthy. Take care.

You are certainly into a depression. You could be in an anger related and this emotion, if not expressed turns inward causing the depression. Anger is energy and when this turns against you, it stifles the natural energy to make you feel tired, dull, listless and lethargic. If someone irritates you even slightly, you can easily flare-up. Then the vicious circle is for you to feel guilty and get angrier with yourself: more the depression. You have to get along with people especially in a profession like teaching! You must become active; stay upright during the daylight time; meet people; never sleep during the day, and 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, eat more of proteins and vegetables, attend Yoga classes etc. Watch a lot of 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 scotching heat. I hope you can find someone to love and be loved too. Whatever happens please incorporate these three important adaptations in your life: always be responsible, be respectful, and be functional. If you did these three things, lots of things will go well in life. Please pray and have faith in God to alleviate your sufferings. The bottom line is to deal with the anger. Do visit a counselor to help you and on that person’s recommendation you may visit a doctor too.

My daughter is 31 n married. Recently her behavior has been very strange and violent with her husband, this has resulted in frequent arguments, fights, major difference between them. I would like to know the remedy and treatment.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
It is impossible to give you a diagnosis or treatment prescription with this little information. However, this behavior is troubling and she certainly needs treatment. Ideally, she should meet with a counselor and then if that person recommends that she meet with a doctor she would need to do the same. It is preferable that she meets with a relationship counselor along with her husband to see how the relationship may have contributed to her condition. I am afraid that we cannot assume that her behavior is independent of her husband's interaction and that may be reflecting the malaise that haunts the marriage itself. So, before any judgement calls, it i9s better to meet with this counselor and see what unfolds.
