These are anxiety attacks by your over-reaction to fearful situations, especially when you have to face an interview. You are having a problem handling fear and this may be habituated from childhood from overbearing parents. Either one or both of your parents may have exercised strict controls and expectations on you and now you have become intimidated by this pressure. They may have meant well but could have in the bargain gone overboard and caused this reaction in you. You should meet with a counselor and learn how to handle this fear and master your emotions. This is not to control your feelings but to learn to express them appropriately. When we are afraid it is very important to express the feeling but also to reach out for support. You may also go for public speaking skills course or attend the ?Toastmasters Club?. Additionally, you may attend a personality development course. Visit a gym and build your body image, do aerobic exercises, Yoga and meditation, eat healthily, and sleep well. Handling emotions efficiently will go a long way to make you face your fear. You may also take some multivitamins and multi-minerals as supplements.

Hello, you could be suffering from intermittent explosive disorder which is an impulse control disorder in which small upsetting events could trigger an anger outburst during which person does not have much control over his behaviour. This is followed by a sense of relief and guilt for whatever is said or done during the anger outburst. There are anger management techniques as well as effective medicines for this condition.

Dear lybrate user, you have mentioned, that you are reacting to any stimulus, aggressively because you are seeing these objects as a threat to your life. By reacting like this you are trying to protect yourself. It appears to me that either you have learnt this behaviour from your father or mother or any other relative who was with you when you were growing up. So this is like a" learnt" reaction, which is faulty, now, to overcome this, you need to do the following: 1. Every morning or evening, whenever you can spare 20 minutes - sit at a quiet place. Close your eyes, take 10 deep breaths. With closed eyes try to look inside your body. Understand that this body can protect itsel. Now imagine, that there is a soothing white light, which is a source of energy, above your head. With a calm mind, start receiving that soothing light through your head. Concentrate on all your body parts starting with your head, ending with your toes. Imagine that all your body parts are receiving that soothing light. Just continue imagining this for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes take another 10 deep breaths and imagine that all your body parts have become more powerful now. Do this exercise everyday at lease for 3 months. Also understand that you are very young and full of strength. Go to gym at least thrice a week. This will make your body stronger. Once you have stronger body, you will be more confident about yourself. Everyday tell yourself that you are strong enough to protect yourself. After about 3 months, start looking at pictures of small insects, animals etc in the book/magazine, from a distance. Find information about them and learn how to tame, how to protect yourself from them etc. After a week touch these pictures. Then tell yourself that the pictures do not harm you. Later on slowly, try to be familiar with actual real insects or animals (you can take help of your friends or a counsellor). Please understand that you are huge in size if you compare yourself with these insects/animals. You do have more power and you do have more matured brain than theirs' you need to know, that, with the above exercise, you have gained more power. Every morning and at night, before going to bed, tell yourself that you are very strong and you can protect yourself. Tell yourself that you need to be calm all the time, because when you are calm, you can take better decisions. You also may take help from a cousellor, who can find out the reason for your abnormal reactions and help you to get rid of such embarrassing situations.

I used to smoke. But now I want to quit smoking how it is possible? How to intoxify my body from nicotine?

Dear lybrate user, you may need a bit of willpower to stop smoking permanently. You could easily abstain yourself from smoking during the initial 2-3 days. But after few days of abstaining from smoking you will feel a strong craving to smoke a cigarette whenever you face any tense situation. Here lies your real test. You will need a lot of willpower to resist that craving & face any tense situation without the help of nicotine. However, you can take homoeopathic mother tincture daphne indica q, 30 drops, thrice daily, after meals, in a cup of water. This medicine will help to reduce your craving for nicotine.

Masturbation has nothing to do with brain power or memory. The guilt around it may have caused enough stress to cause a lot of distraction and therefore there might have been some memory loss.You may be under this stress, and I do not know if you are aware of it. Find out if there is any other disturbance and as you address it, memory and concentration will happily return to favor you. Do meet with a counselor, if your stress is too much. In the meantime please follow the suggested guidelines: Daily exercise of at least half an hour is a must. Even if you go to a gym, ask for aerobic and/or calisthenics 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 or coconut 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. Short-term memory is a faculty of the left brain, and long-term memory is a feature of the right brain. But you must have short term memory to convert it into long-term memory. So the emphasis must be in activating good short term memory, ideally and always. 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. If your home life is full of distractions and stress, it is likely to affect your memory, adversely. In that case, I suggest that you and the family go for counseling too.

Dear, you must be able to distinguish between mental disease and mental disorder. Your problem is a mental disorder. Not a mental disease. These mental disorders are usually treated with a combination of medicines and other means like awareness, meditation, psychotherapy techniques, life style changes etc. I think two or three counseling sessions and psycho therapy techniques should solve your problem. Let me know if you are willing to undergo counseling sessions and tailor made psycho therapy through mobile. Take care.

Nothing to worry really. Withdrawal symptoms will run their course and will gradually fade away. Drinking a lot of fluids and do good vigorous exercises and that will lessen the effects. If it gets really unbearable you can visit a doctor who will prescribe medicines to ease the symptoms​.

I am 20 years old I had sex with my boyfriend for the first time but I didn't get bleed he had doubt on me that i'm not virgin. But I know how much dedicated I am to him but he is not yet all trust me. What should I do?

Dear lybrate user, I can imagine how hurtful it must be for you when your boyfriend is doubting your character. I think, you both need little sex education. When a girl has intercourse for the first time, she is likely to have some bleeding because the hymen breaks when the penis enters the vagina. But please understand that the hymen can get torned even while playing, trekking, cycling or doing any other rigorous physical activity. At the same time in some cases, a girl can have sex but the hymen may remain intact. So whether a girl bleeds or does not bleed at the time of first intercourse, is not a sign of virginity. Please talk to your boyfriend about it or ask him to talk to a doctor.

Keep your lungs filled. .5.Breathe out through the nose while humming.

You must have been smoking for a long time and may have tried several times to quit it too. But you must keep trying until you succeed. This is the pattern with smoking: you fail and then you try again. One day you will succeed. You may feel that it is impossible to give up at your age or for having smoked so much. But that it not true. I know of so many people who have given up and were very high level smokers (even 40 cigarettes a day!). You can follow some of these instructions to help you this time. The habit can be very difficult to halt because of the many conditions attached to smoking. In fact these conditions can exist all through the day unlike other addictions. But your desire to want to stop is the most important factor. It is important to find out about the ill-effects of smoking to have a reason that alarms you about continuing in the habit. The information is really scary. The nicotine in tobacco smoke stimulates the heart beat to raise the blood pressure in no time at all. So you must avoid it like the plague: it is just very bad medicine for you. In fact it is highly toxic too. You will need to stop smoking or consuming any tobacco related items with immediate effect. 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 chewing gum or 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. All the damage you incurred earlier because of the smoking can be reverted back to normal in quick time.

Dear , depression and related symptoms are body's defense mechanism against stress and fear and therefore you cannot fully eliminate it. When the symptoms become more frequent and prominent, it is called depressive disorder. It is a disorder and not a disease. Understanding depression helps you manage it properly. Education, awareness, cbt, ret etc are the therapeutical areas with which depressive disorder is managed effectively. Please post a detailed private question to me and I am sure I will be able to help and cure your problem. Take care.
