Hi there i am 28 year old girl. Recently I had gone through a big problem in my life which turned my life. From that day sometimes it happens when I think about anything serious I am unable to breathe for some time and my left hand started paining. Had gone through ECG there was right axis deviation in that but when undergone ECHO it was normal. But the same problem continues with me still when I took anything serious. Moreover I feel stressed so often after that.

Problems in study in youth
Problems in study in youth

Now a days students from all over india started complaining of poor concentration and poor memory problem, anger outburst.

There are many reasons for above mentioned complaints.

First thing that affect your study is atmosphere, plan your study room according to your need.

Second is any relationship issues with your friends, family and others.

Third one is use of gadgets in between study. One can set daily limit for gadget use.

Fourth one is underlying psychological issues such as low mood, any stressor, repetitive thoughts or images, fearfulness, sleep problems.

Fifth one is not interested in study at all from the beginning so one should have proper interest in study. Interest in study can be evoked by your life's long term goals.


These are only few specific problem. There may be other reason also according to individual life.

Hi, I'm 23 years old male. I am having erectile dysfunction from past 5 years due to over masturbation. I have masturbate 3 to 8 times continuous daily for over 10 years. All these days I had thought it will be cured but Now I'm getting scared. My penis has shrinked to its fullest and all the veins have swollen up, because of the shrinkage the skin is protruding at the tip of pennis with swollen veins. The semen when I masturbate will be colourless. And very loose. I feel more and more to masturbate once I finish masturbation. I'm having severe hair loss and hair thinning. I am not able to any work or I'm always feeling dull and depressed. I have stopped masturbation from 5 days. I somewhat feel good mentally. But I have strong urges to watch porn and masturbate. Please help me. I am stuck in life. I have suicidal thoughts. My health has deteriorated. My immunity when I recently checked was some 7000. But Range was 4k to 14k for male.

Hi the description of your problem only shows your lack of knowledge about sexuality and false beliefs about mastrubation, if you are getting even a partial erection while trying to mastrubare then it si not erectile dysfunction and all other symptoms you talk about are just a part of normal physiology. But the frequency with you seem to be involving in mastrubation only suggests that you are obsessed with the thought of mastrubation. This may be because you may be a loner with put much friends and may be you are not focussed on doing any productive goal oriented work. Just try to set an goal for yourself and divert your full focus on it. Also try to connect with your friends and spend time with them. If you have difficulty in doing all these things better consult a clinical psychologist who will help you to overcome this problem.

Whenever this thought comes ask yourself just one question. What is important to me now and in future. My studies or this insult? if the person has insulted you then is he or she really worth to sacrifice on the most important thing of your life now that is study. You might ruin your whole life thinking about this and not focusing on studies. How is it going to affect you in future? think and decide. Use your intellect to control emotional mind. Let go for your own benefit. Take care.

You should eat simple foods like vegetables and cow's milk, avoid tobacco products and reduce common tea and coffee which can cause vaso-constriction leading to headache. Anxiety and fear is due to disconnection from god, so re-connect with god by chanting, reading and hearing nice stories in your free time, thus avoid unnecessary thoughts, doubts and negative feelings by replacing negative feelings with higher taste of transcendental meditation.

If that girl is not spending time with you then she may not be interested in you. If she has a problem with her family or any such thing then she can at least tell you about it. These are important signs to indicate her commitment and if she loves you or not. At least you must have the courage to ask her and find out why she is not willing to spend time with you! In fact love is spelt with these letters, TIME. If someone is willing to spend time with you it indicates how much they are committed to you and therefore how much they love you. So do not waste time on this girl and don?t get disturbed since she is not as interested as you are. Go and love someone else who deserves your love. Now you may not like what I am saying but this is the truth and you are only disturbing your health by not sleeping too. This relationship must bring the best out of you, if not it is not good for you, period. Loe is a two way relationship.

Hello- Being depressed can make you feel helpless. You're not. Along with therapy and sometimes medication, there's a lot you can do on your own to fight back. Changing your behavior -- your physical activity, lifestyle, and even your way of thinking -- are all natural depression treatments. These tips can help you feel better -- starting right now. 1. Get in a routine. If you’re depressed, you need a routine. 2. Set goals. When you're depressed, you may feel like you can't accomplish anything. That makes you feel worse about yourself. To push back, set daily goals for yourself. 3. Exercise. It temporarily boosts feel-good chemicals called endorphins. It may also have long-term benefits for people with depression. 4. Eat healthy. There is no magic diet that fixes depression. It's a good idea to watch what you eat, though. If depression tends to make you overeat, getting in control of your eating will help you feel better. 5. Get enough sleep. Depression can make it hard to get enough shut-eye, and too little sleep can make depression worse. 6. Take on responsibilities. When you’re depressed, you may want to pull back from life and give up your responsibilities at home and at work. 7. Challenge negative thoughts. In your fight against depression, a lot of the work is mental -- changing how you think. 8. Check with your doctor before using supplements. 9. Do something new. When you’re depressed, you’re in a rut. Push yourself to do something different. 10. Try to have fun. If you’re depressed, make time for things you enjoy.

Dear, You must be able to understand Concentration, attention span, recollection and distraction. If you are able to watch a movie for two hours continuously, if you are able to play a game for an hour, then you do not have any concentration problems. You can't be attentive towards your studies because you are not interested in it. You are able to watch movie and play game because you are interested in it. Human cannot be attentive towards anything for more than 10 minutes. Then you should study in such a way that your attention is continued and make the subjects are interesting to you. Effective learning techniques should help you. Recollection depends on anxiety, stress and other physical and circumstantial factors. Distractions while studying are plentiful. You should be able to overcome distractions or avoid distractions. Please understand the above. Change your study style and attitude accordingly. Please post a private question to me and I will help you with "effective learning" techniques. Take care.

Dear lybrate user, welcome to lybrate. At your age, memory problems like amnesia, dementia or alzheimer's are not common. Many young people do complain having problems with memory. These problems are due to 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, we need to check your memory using memory test. Take care.

If you are an occasional smoker - with public messages, health awareness programs and your own doctors advice, you can quit. If you are a regular smoker, motivational therapy with a trained psychotherapist or a psychiatrist and enormous will power will help you quit. If you are a diseased smoker, consult a de addiction psychiatrist at the earliest. He may give you anti-smoking medications and de addiction treatment.

Hye, thanks for the query. There are absolutely no health benefits of smoking or alcohol you can try to justify your drinking or smoking but the truth is there is no recommendation at all. Even two beers daily will end up in your getting some health issue. Smoking increases your risk of cancer, heart disease, type 2 diabetes, eye disorders such as cataracts, rheumatoid arthritis, dental problems and stroke. That's because the substances in cigarettes can damage your organs and increase your body's level of free radicals, compounds that harm dna and cellular tissue. There aren't any foods or drugs that can prevent or undo the effects of smoking. Alcohol give you unwanted fats in the body and liver damage in the long run.

You are going through grief reaction, which is normal after loss of a loved one. Time is the healer for the emotional and behavioral changes, however if your depression is severe enough to affect you in a significant manner, kindly consult a psychiatrist for short term antidepressant medication, depending on the complaints. Try to get away from loneliness and meet other friends or relatives.
