I am a computer engineer present I have a social anxiety disorder please I need some suggests.

I am a computer engineer present I have a social anxiety disorder please I need some suggests.
Anxiety has all to do with fear and your inability (or so you would tend to think) to handle the same. Fear is based on looking too much into the future and imagining things that usually do not tend to happen (usually 90% of your fears will not happen). You need to change your perception of the fearful stimulus then you can change your response to the fear. The first one is the best and will preempt the need for the second. If you are already far gone into the reaction mode, then you need both responses to counter the attack. The way we see things in life (like half empty or half full glass) is very dependent on our attitude. Attitude may have developed over many years but fortunately can change in a matter of sustained choices made and acted up on now. Accordingly you choose to see things as either threatening or as an opportunity. The opportunist will be positive and work with the situation to make good out of it. The individual who sees it as threatening, will, out of fear, try to avoid/run away from the situation or react with anxiety. Yes, self-belief does impact it too, but you can see that prior to that, perception will tarnish the belief system too. Here, you can see that all the resolution lies in just changing your perception/attitude, even if it is against odds. Changing your response, despite the perception, is building up of your reserves and resources to handle any contingency that life throws up at you. And life throws up situations quite regularly and heavily. For this you need to develop a fit mind and body: The former, by meditation and mind exercises; and the later, by exercises and proper diet. You need good sleep too. Included in the development of the mind is the handling of emotions, in your case, fear. These changes will give you a handle on life and your perceptions and responses. Prayer is really powerful, if you are a spiritual person. Repeat some personally framed affirmations that are geared to calming you down and building confidence. Do a personality course too. Anything that develops you personally will be of great assistance in building resilience.

Please note the following for your condition: • Avoid big meals late in the evening. You need three to four hours to digest a big meal. • Spicy or sugary food, even at suppertime, is usually a bad idea. Spices can irritate your stomach, and when it tosses and turns, so will you. Having a lot of sugary food—especially chocolate, which contains caffeine—can make you feel jumpy. • Try a soothing aromatic bath before bedtime. Add 5 drops lavender oil and 3 drops ylang-ylang oil to warm bathwater and enjoy a nice soak. Limit your screen time staring at computers, TVs or phones in the evening before going to bed Also take Nux vom 30 - thrice daily for next 7 days and revert back.

How to increase my memory power. So that I can easily remember what works I should do and should remember all the answers of my portion and etc. Please advice me.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
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 are 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.

Dear user. I can understand. I am really sorry. There are no tonics available to keep your health intact or maintained when you continue taking liquor and cigarettes. 350 ml per day is almost half a bottle or 6 large. This is too much a daily dose. Please quit drinking and smoking. Then we can think about tonics to restore your health. Take care.

My husband, 53 years old, has almost stopped communicating with family and friends. He avoids company, refuses to go out other than office, doesn't answer phone calls except extremely important. He is a regular drinker and a chain smoker. He is not open to any kind of conversation. He watches TV all the time he is at home. He sleeps around the clock on weekends. His health checkup shows that his vital organs are functioning perfectly. He suffers from Vitamin D deficiency, for which he is under medication for the past 3 months and his triglyceride level is high. We are married for 24 years. He hardly ever initiated sex, even when we were newly married. He is a single child of over-protective parents. He has had a few extra-marital liasons till some years back. He has never initiated any kind of family outings. His academic performance in school/college was below average. There was traces of sexual perversion and sadism in him, which get exposed through his behaviour at times, specially when he is high on alcohol. He gets attracted to very young girls and maid servants. He refuses to undergo counselling/treatment. How can I help him?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
He is an alcoholic, a smoker, a womanizer, a sexual pervert, non-communicative, does not have intimacy with you, he was unfaithful, he has high triglycerides, is withdrawn, and a weekend recluse. Wow! What a basket case list of problems, and yet you want to help him. He is both blessed and cursed. He is blessed to have someone like you who has stood by him all these years and through all these problems. But he also cursed for this very reason: you are what we call a co-dependent ? A role that facilitates the addictions. You must immediately attend an Al-Anon group where you will meet other family members of alcoholics who support each other and adopt strategies and methods to counter the problem of the addict, and to change your own role to bring about the change in your husband. They have a 12-step program that is highly effective and will address the situation potently. He must be taken for counseling, or admitted in a facility for rehabilitation. Some institutes will wait till he is in a sufficiently enough drunken stupor to pick him up by force, if you give them the undertaking to go ahead with this action. If you feel bad, sorry or reluctant, then you are facilitating the addiction and coming in the way of his recovery. He needs help and so do you. It is a family disease, and firm actions are the order of the day. Use the help of other strong and respected family members to push for these measures. You may want to read my book on addictions to better understand the problems and take right actions. It is not too late, so just go ahead.

Bipolar can be treated by Allopathy or homeopathic drugs? Which is more effective? Tnx.
In my humble opinion, allopathic drugs are the agents of choice for treatment of bipolar disorder. Lithium that you are on is among the best medicines for bipolar disorder provided it is prescribed in the proper dosage and monitored properly. In cases where lithium is ineffective, many other agents are available to treat this condition. Take care!

Yes ofcourse it's alarming. Stop smoking. Get an x ray. And if nothing on x-ray get a hrct of the chest done. Don't ignore the hemoptysis.

Dear Lybrate User, It appears to me that you are under lot of stress. I also guess that this has something to do with your family and childhood experiences. You appear to be sad and having low self confidence. Probably you did not get love and appreciation from your near and dear ones when you were growing up. Please seek help from a Counsellor. By talking to a Counsellor you will get more self awareness and you will know what is happening to you. The Counsellor will also help you to be more confident about yourself. When you will feel better about yourself, you social interaction would improve. Your mind is empty probably because there is no purpose left in life, for you. Your poor concentration and weight gain also probably is because of stress. During the process of Counselling, you will learn to relive and manage your stress. All the best.

I was in love with my future wife but suddenly we broke out. What can I do to regain my love back please assist me.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
It looks like you are pining for her after the breakup. Have you analyzed why you two had this fallout? If it your fault, then apologize and see if she is amenable. If not you may have done something quite unforgivable. It seems that you have discovered perhaps that a heterosexual relationship is very different from normal relations. It is very intense, and the very thing that makes it attractive (the opposite sex and all its nuances), can also be its nemesis. You must learn what that difference is and find out how to live with a love relationship. There must be love, respect, commitment, honesty, trust, and freedom in the romantic scene. If you have not offered all this, she may not feel secure. You could both meet with a relationship counselor and work out the problems and see if you can cope up with what is required to satisfy her. You could also meet with her parents along with your parents and negotiate a compromise and some commitments to work out the issues. If however, this is final, then remove all associations of hers: gifts, notes, letters, cards, emails, and any reminders to get her out of your system, not just the mind. Keep the good memories but don’t indulge in them. Get back to your old pals and revive those contacts. Normally when we get a girlfriend, we drop all our friends and live exclusively with her. This is not a good thing to do, generally. So do get back to them and get into good social circles. They will help you get over her. Do not talk ill or malign your ex to your friends, whatever was the reason. That is, unfortunately, a very bad habit many of us have – we must still respect her reputation and treat her with dignity. Do meet up with a counselor and talk about your feelings, openly, if you are still not able to cope.

Dear, you should understand your problems. If a psychiatrist or psychologist advises you, you need treatment, you should get it. Otherwise, anxiety will be the result. You need to get evaluated again. Proper diagnosis can help you manage your problems. Psychotherapy, meditation etc can help you manage your ADHD, anxiety disorders without medicine. You may post a private question in this regard and I am willing to help you. Take care.

Hi doctors. I am 26 years old. I am facing a serious issue, which is related with my behaviour. I imagine things a lot and because of that I have inculcated a habit of talking to myself, I find it very difficult to control my emotions and I talk loudly which means that I actually talk to myself loudly. This habit has become so weird that people have actually seen me talking on road with myself and even at work, which is really embarassing. I accept that I don't have to many friends, and I really don't know y I don't have to many friends, most of the time I feel like staying alone, with a fear that what if I am sitting with my friends and they saw me talking to myself, will further spoil my image, is being alone, not having to many friends, is that the root cause of the problem? I really don't know, even when I am at work, I tend to imagine a lot and the problem is that my imagination has got no control, it is all situational, I at times feel that I am literally becoming mad but I have actually scene people with similar behaviour and that's why I didn't feel like consulting a doctor earlier and because of that I felt that it's all normal but now the problem is becoming severe, it has become so severe that most of the times I feel disconnected with real world and most of the time engrossed in imaginative world, before people could actually start considering me mad, I want somebody to help please. Is there a treatment for this? I also want to mention that my mom also have this habit, could it be hereditary or something else, please help? help would be highly appreciated! regards,

For your condition I would suggest you to consult a psychologist or psychiatrist immediately. What you are going through is understood, but why have you never taken any help. Kindly consult a professional as your problem can be solved with proper therapy and treatment. Stop living in imaginary world by going out and meeting people and living in the real world. The cause for this may be your hidden anxiety about something, but this needs to be dealt with immediately. Get help.

Dear, 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.

Since she was a sexual partner, your obsession with your ex-partner is normal. You need to ignore this thought with CBT.
