You and your mom need to express your grief around the loss of this family member completely. A father and husband are a great loss for the both of you and that vacuum that he has created can never be filled adequately by anyone else. And the loss is, therefore, permanent. You need to talk about him and all the experiences he had brought into your lives to exhaust it out pf your system. Then gradually you will learn to accept it and come to terms with it too. This is a gradual process and at the end of it, you will have accepted the reality and can move on with your lives. If it is too intense, meet with a counselor and deal with it. It is better to deal with it now than to let it come up much later, which will affect your lives adversely. You will probably have to become the man of the house if there is no other male around. You will soon move on but for your mom, the loss is more difficult to handle. You must be there for her and support her extensively to come out of the grief.

The simplest method of removing minor surface stains is polishing, or micro-abrasion if staining is more intrinsic. Provided that your discolouration is not due to inadequate enamel exposing the dentin, tooth whitening (bleaching) is often the most effective treatment for yellow stained teeth. Advance procedures can be done with laser. Use snowdent tooth paste for whitening until then. Apply snowdent paste on the teeth. Wait for 10 to 15 min. Then brush your teeth with the same paste. Applying it overnight for better results.

Sir my memory is not sharp I have problem to remembered something for a long time and not easily learn anything what should I do please tell me.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Usually stress is the cause for his development. If you meet with a counselor you will be able to sort that out and enjoy good sharp memory.In the meantime do some of these recommendations very faithfully: 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.

I got my drivers license like a month ago. However, I am terrified of driving. I hateeee driving because I am always thinking that something wrong will happened. I use to love to drive when I almost got into an accident and was totally frozen! Doctors said that I suffer from anxiety. They did not tell me anything further but I will like to start back to drive comfortably on my own. Any suggestions? Thank you in advance.

Its natural to be anxious before re starting something in which you almost failed once. However if that keeps you terrified of driving due to which you keep away from it, then you certainly have anxiety that is impairing your functioning. This may include behaviour therapies to relax while driving with some medications if required.

Dear lybrate user. You have to convince him about why failing exams never is an end to the journey but it is just a beginning. There will be many exams in the future (including life related exams) and passing in every one of them is impossible. Take him for a psychological counseling. Take care.

Hello lybrate-user, Stress is one of the commonest situation we all are dealing in with and I can understand your pressures. Since we have to work and manage our personal life too it is important to keep a check on WORK-LIFE BALANCE. Try to take out some time for yourself and for relaxing activities which may help you improving your mood and health and in turn bring positive attitude too. Spending quality time with family and peers is also helpful along with regular exercises. Hope that keeps your BP in control. Take care of yourself. Life is valuable. Good luck.

Dear lybrate-user, If your weight loss is due to severe anxiety, you should go for anxiety treatment rather than worrying about weight loss alone. Be happy - you don't have any serious illness causing weight loss. You can also consult a dietitian about weight gaining diet.

Hi lybrate-user, You have to take the medication at least for 18 months and further the doctor would decide on whether to continue. In my opinion if your OCD and anxiety is stabilised it sufficient you take XET cr alone but do consult and opine your doctor for the same. Every doctor has a reason to prescribe which every patient should ask for. There would be side effect but in terms of risk benefit you should continue. Good luck!

Dear lybrate user, counselling typically is for a shorter duration and psychotherapy is for a longer duration. In situational difficulties or simple problems counselling is helpful but for conditions of slightly major intensity like moderate to severe depression, addictions, schizophrenia etc. Psychotherapy is used. Psychotherapist uses one particular therapeutic approach to deal with the person's problems. But in counselling integrative (mixed) therapy approach can be used. Counselling is more about making the person aware about his/her own mind set, values and perceptions and thought processes and it encourages the person to modify his/her perceptions or reactions etc. Psychotherapy is a slow and steady effort which follows specific guidelines of a therapy and ultimately helps the person to come out of acute depression, anxiety, phobia etc. While in counselling, a person need not be under medication. But mostly when under psychotherapy the person is put on some medication by the psychiatrist (not the counsellor), here medication and therapy goes hand in hand.

I get annoyed and angry on little discussions. I don't have much friends in life. I don't have a stable job. Mostly my spare time goes in playing games on Google Play like shadow fight 2 and dark lands. People think I am immature. Very few people understand my capabilities. I feel quite lowly about myself at times. Need a corner for myself to cry just after I am angry. I don't intend to hurt anyone. Let me know how can I overcome all of this. My head aches.

I feel you need to organize your life and also prioritize things in your life. There is some inner conflict which may be making you annoyed and angry on little things. Step out try to socialize with people, make meaningful friendships. You have to push your limits. You can take a helpless stance instead work your way through it. Keep a dairy of events in your life day to day. Make a schedule and stick to it. Exercise daily for 30 minutes eat healthy- lots of fruits and green leafy vegetables. Learn some communication and presentation skills- if not by yourself seek help of a professional. I am sure you do not intend to hurt anyone, I wonder what makes you say that?

Well whatever is your problem the root causes seem to be in the childhood and past painful experiences. All these can change with proper psychotherapy, and I can really help you in this. There is a process by which you can let go of the past and its impact, and start enjoying the present with confidence, thanks.
