I can not control my anger. Even in case of small small things I got angry and want to die. I got totally mad if things can not go smoothly. I think what I want I should get and if this will not happen I can not control my anger.

You must quit your smoking completely and you must do it now, seriously. 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. But don’t be discouraged because it is not too late even now to reverse all the ill-effects of smoking. 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. 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 chewing 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. But don’t fool yourself any smoking is harmful, and you need to seriously get on with quitting it completely and immediately.

Hello sir/ma'am i'm 20 years old boy and I always have suicide dreams, its about 4 or 5 times in a week, is it good or bad for my health?

No single therapeutic approach is suitable for all people considering suicide or suicidal tendencies. The most common ways to treat underlying illnesses associated with suicide are with medication, talk therapy or a combination of the two. Cognitive (talk therapy) and behavioral (changing behavior) therapies aim at relieving the despair of suicidal patients by showing them other solutions to their problems and new ways to think about themselves and their world. Behavioral methods, such as training in assertiveness, problem-solving, social skills, and muscle relaxation, may reduce depression, anxiety, and social ineptitude. Cognitive and behavioral homework assignments are planned in collaboration with the patient and explained as experiments that will be educational even if they fail. The therapist emphasizes that the patient is doing most of the work, because it is especially important for a person thinking about suicide not to see the therapist as necessary for their survival. Recent research strongly supports the use of medication to treat the underlying depression associated with suicide. Antidepressant medication acts on chemical pathways of the brain related to mood. There are many very effective antidepressants. The two most common types are selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (ssris) and tricyclic antidepressants (tcas). Other new types of antidepressants (e. G. Alpha-2 antagonist, selective norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors (snris) and aminoketones), and an older class, monoamine oxidase inhibitors (maois), are also prescribed by some doctors. Antidepressant medications are not habit-forming. Although some symptoms such as insomnia, often improve within a week or two, it may take three or four weeks before you feel better; the full benefit of medication may require six to eight weeks of treatment. Sometimes changes need to be made in dosage or medication type before improvements are noticed. It is usually recommended that medications be taken for at least four to nine months after the depressive symptoms have improved. People with chronic depression may need to stay on medication to prevent or lessen further episodes. People taking antidepressants should be monitored by a doctor who knows about treating clinical depression to ensure the best treatment with the fewest side effects. It is also very important that your doctor be informed about all other medicines that are taken, including vitamins and herbal supplements, in order to help avoid dangerous interactions. Alcohol or other drugs can interact negatively with antidepressant medication. Do not discontinue medication without discussing the decision with your doctor. Ask privately if you need more advice.

Dear , dream analysis is an area which is not approved scientifically. There could be many interpretations and all of them can be obtained on searching . But we, as we follow ethics, do not believe in interpretation of dreams because it has not been proved yet. Therefore, my sincere request to you will be, to not to think obsessively about your dreams. You are just 26. Exercise very hard and do many physical activities so that you get good dreamless sleep.

There is some kind of vulnerability in you to want to die for another person so easily. To make matters worse you say he does not understand. Are you saying he does not really understand or he does want to love you in return?! You must meet with a counselor along with your parents and see if there were any childhood experiences that have contributed to this vulnerability.You are just 20 and life has only begun and you already want to end it! You sound more and more like someone with a serious rejection issue. It has become so bad that I feel you are now rejecting yourself in contemplating suicide! You may be angry about something and because you think that it cannot be expressed, you are turning it inwards. The identity crisis is a typical issue of someone who is dependent on others for acknowledgment and tends to identify with other personalities. You probably suffer from low self-esteem. But far worse than that is my fear that you have this rejection issue, which is compounded with abandonment issues and separation anxiety. The fear of acceptance may then trigger a performance-oriented individual who will depend entirely on other people’s opinion and assessment of himself. This will make you even more vulnerable and susceptible to rejection, and you may hurt very badly and easily at the slightest sign of rejection. There is a way about this, but meet with a counselor first and see what can be worked out to learn to accept yourself first. If you did this you will naturally perform well and will not depend on others, entirely, for their acceptance. If you know of any reason to believe that this rejection is true from your childhood it would help tremendously. Talk to your parents and find out what they remember or you could take them with you to meet with the counselor. If you learn to accept yourself first then the identity may be formed, but the best way to develop an identity is to know your emotions and how to express them. Your feelings are a very good indicator of who you are. A counselor will help you do this well. Depression itself is anger turned inwards. Your life is very, very precious. You would be wasting it if you destroyed it for an undeserving fellow.

Hi One of the simplest and most effective ways to induce sleep is to rub some oil on the scalp and the soles of the feet before going to bed. Use sesame oil, brahmi oil, jasmine oil, or coconut oil and massage gently for a few minutes. Slightly warming the oil before applying is helpful. 1-1 drop of cow ghee in both nostrils at night time before sleep. Take sarpgandha vati 1-1 tab twice a day. Take pranacharya no tens capsule 1-1 twice a day. Avoid spicy food. Junk food. Fermented food. Tea.coffee. Do pranayama early in the morning.

NO JOY IN LIFE , THINKING THAT ONE DAY I AM GOING TO DIE. EVERYBODY TO THE MATTER NEAR AND DEAR, SO NOT LIVING FOR THE DAY, FEEL DEPRESSED , SON AND DAUGHTER NOT UP TO THE MARK WHICH I EXPECTED AND WORKED FOR THEM I AM VERY VERY VERY INCOMPLETE.

Dear lybrate-user, I can understand your problem. Diseases that commonly cause shaky hands include parkinson's disease, overactive thyroid (hyperthyroidism), and multiple sclerosis. Shaky hands may occur after ingesting or withdrawing from certain drugs or substances, such as alcohol and caffeine. You are too young for parkinson. You need to check your thyroid. Please consult a physician. Take care.

Dear , at your age, memory problems like amnesia are not common. Many young people are having problems with memory. These problems are either they are too busy or due to anxiety and stress. Busy people use organizers or employ a personal assistant because they can't remember every task. You need to understand this. If you still say, you are having memory problems, need to check your memory using memory test.

Chemistry, physics and biology are not separate subjects. They interrelated. In fact our body contains chemical components and electricity (you exhale carbon molecules and your heart needs electricity to function. For example, there are many rooms in your house, but wholly it is a house. Likewise, we are made up bio-chemical-physical rooms. Your dislike of these subjects may be due to some negative attitude or experience towards the concerned teachers during your early school life. Or, there may be a gap in knowledge because of your aversion. Better relearn these 2 subjects from 5th std. On wards, that will help you better understand the subjects and increase your interest. A stethoscope is a product of physics, and an injection or tablet is a product of chemistry.
