Dear Sir, I am doing chartered accountants course in Chennai. I am not yet completed my inter label, due to my family problem and my age is now 26. Now my family is fine & my elder brother giving money for my study. But when I am reading, to my mind past problem of my & my family coming. I am feeling emotional & why not yet completed my inter label making me and my mind weak and again my hostel siner boys talling me, why are you not going for a job. But I want to study. Please help me how to forget all & concentrate on my study as my exam is starting in may 3rd 2015. Thank you.

I think that your hostel friends are giving you good advice. If you are not able to concentrate and you keep thinking of the past and the family situation, then it is better for you to work somewhere. At work you will be compelled to concentrate on the job. Sometimes it is better to take a break from your studies due to the distractions you experience. You can still do your inter, by studying in the evening. You may also go for tutorials, which will aid you in studying. This will entail some costs for which you need to work. Do not waste your brother?s hard-earned money, if you are not doing justice to it. There are a lot of youngsters who work and study. I think you need help in your studies, if not from tutorials, ask some of your friends to help. You may have a mind block that is hampering concentration.

I am in confusion. I don't know what to do. I have two kids. My doesn't love me and his kids also. He won't spend time with family. He always want to spend with others expect with us. If he is in home he will be with mobile and laptop. He will not leave mobile for sec. He carries mobile Even he go to toilet. He always hold mobile and will be doing in mobile. He won't even speak for 5 mins with love to me. And he is so lazy. I have to do everything for him. Only bath he will do by his own other than that I have to do everything. He treats me like servant. I don't mind doing that if he show love on me. But he won't. I really want to die but I can't because I have kids they are two young and I can't imagine them with out me because definitely my husband will not take care of them if I die. And I can't go away from him with my kids. Because I don't have any assets to look after them. But if I stay like this I will go mad. Please suggest me what to do. Is there anything wrong with my mentality. Or with his mentality. How to change my life.

" it not what you have lost but what you have left that counts" relax lybrate user. I could understand your stressful state of mind. A husband's indifference over his wife for a long period of time will certainly cause immense pain. But, you can change this state to the better if you have the strong will. Yes, drop your expectation of love from your husband. You will feel free at once. Accept the stressor that can not be changed. Your 2 children can distract you from all your worries. Focus your concentration on them. You can also distract yourself by doing some job at home that gives any income. Sitting and crying will not help in any way. Rebuild your relationship with your friends and relatives, expand your social network. Fortune favours only the bold. Whatever you have been doing to him, do it without any emotional content, expectation or dislike. He may turn good in course of time.

Dear doctor, You are requested to kindly recommend supplements for production of new neurons in the hippocampus of brain as that is the only center of regeneration of brain. Those supplements if cross blood brain barrier will help cure schizophrenia patients. We will be highly obliged and thankful to you.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Supplements cannot make a real difference or make neurons grow as you expect and you can try Mecobalamin .Though scientists have long known that new brain cells are able “enhance learning” – they never thought that “learning” could actually cause the birth of new brain cells… that is, until recently. In recent animal studies, researchers have found that there was a direct relationship between “learning” and the survival rate of newly-birthed brain cells. When researchers taught certain rodents a wide-variety of cognitive tasks which involved a wide-range of brain areas – scientists found that the more the animal “learned” – the more new neurons were able to survive in the hippocampus. Scientists have made it clear that “learning” can increase the presence of new neurons in the brain. Brain cells that are born in the hippocampus, which normally die off, are literally “rescued” by “learning” experiences. There is still plenty of research being conducted in this area and not all sources agree. However, your best bet is to keep your brain power boosted and your mind sharp. Always try to learn something new! Meditation has always thought to have been beneficial for the brain. Recent compelling evidence from scientific researchers at Yale, Harvard, and Massachusetts Institute of Technology revealed that meditation can allow us to “grow bigger brains.” Though this isn’t the same thing as neurogenesis, meditation could very well be an activity that boosts the birth rate of neurons. Researchers also discovered that meditators literally had an altered-physical brain structure compared to non-meditators. Brain scanning technology [i.e. MRIs] showed that meditation boosted thickness of brain structure dealing with attention, sensory input, and memory functions. The thickening was found to be more noticeable in adults than younger individuals. It’s interesting because the same sections of our cortex that meditation thickens, tend to get thinner as we age.

I want to get rid of smoking what should I do for it please suggest medicines for it.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Only by using strong will power and avoiding all situations where you feel like smoking, chewing tobacco or drinking or using drugs avoiding friends who smoke and diverting mind by reading or chewing a gum, like NICORETTE and taking a walk when you crave for a smoke can all help. You can chew Nicorette gum which is nicotine replacement. There are medicines available. Which can be prescribed if asked personally Cigarette smoking is a leading preventable cause of mortality. It kills more than 60 lakh people worldwide every year. More than 50% of regular smokers would invariably die from tobacco-related illnesses which includes heart attack, cancer or asthmatic lung diseases. Best age to stop smoking is before 40 31st May is “World No Tobacco Day” Quitting smoking before the age of 40 is associated with larger decline in premature death than stopping it at a later date. Best age therefore to stop smoking is before 40. However, stopping smoking even after the age of 50 is still associated with lower risk of death as compared to those who continue to smoke. Even in smokers aged 80 years or more, quitting smoking appears to reduce some mortality.

Dear Lybrate user, Anger and aggression are emotions. Anger comes when you become irritated. Irritation happens when you don't like something, or when something is repeated. As anger is an emotion, it should be vent out. You should be able to throw anger out instead of controlling it. But more perfect will be, know the frustrating situations and stop being emotional. If practiced properly, you will not get irritated at those circumstances at all. Those techniques are much easier to understand. Take care.

Rivotril will only manage your physical complaints of anxiety and at your age it might have cognitive slowing causing memory issues. If you are depressed then the treatment would be to deal with the thought process and medications pertaining to it will be beneficial. For that it is advisable to consult a psychiatrist.

WHEN WE GET PAIN, WE HAVE NO CHOICE BUT TO BEAR IT. NOW, IT IS UPTO YOU HOW YOU DECIDE TO BEAR- CRYING IT OUT OR GATHERING YOURSELF BIT BY BIT AND CREATING A NEW YOU! YOU NEED TO LEARN TO THANK GOD FOR THE OPPORTUNITY HE HAS BLESSED YOU WITH! YOU CAN NOT EVEN IMAGINE WHAT STATE YOU WOULD HAVE BEEN IN - HAD YOU GOT MARRIED WITH THIS GUY AND WHAT IF HE WALKED OUT ON YOU FOR ANOTHER GIRL! SO, PLEASE START TO PRAY AND THANK GOD THAT HE SAVED YOU! THE BEST WAY POSSIBLE TO ERASE PAIN IS TO DRESS SOMEONE ELSE'S WOUNDS. SO, LOOK UP , SEE PEOPLE AROUND YOU WHO NEED JUST A CARING GESTURE FROM YOU AND YOU CAN BRING A SMILE ON THEIR FACE. JUST TRY IT OUT, I GUARANTEE, YOU WILL FEEL WONDERFUL. GIVE YOUR LOVE TO THOSE WHO HAVE NO ONE AROUND. THEN SEE, HOW MUCH THOSE PEOPLE WILL LOVE YOU BACK!

My father (age 55) having a problem of drinking alcohol. He also patient of diabetes and liver problems but he is not quitting drinking habit. Is there any solution to prevent my father to drinking?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Ideally, the decision to want to quit must come from the addict himself. In this case, there is a danger to his life (being diabetic and already having liver damage), if he continues, and therefore the decision must be made by responsible others. If this is difficult for you, do get the counsel and help of an elderly relative whom he respects and let him do the convincing. If he does not cooperate, then take the decision and call in the rehabilitation center to just take him away. He may be what people refer to as an addict on ?skid row? i.E. Only death can stop him ? 20% of alcoholics are on skid row, world over. Knowing that someone else responsible has to make that decision for him and will do him the favor of a life-saving course of action, do so without any hesitation. Do not feel any guilt about doing this because you will surely save his life, and perhaps his health.

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.

I don't know what is the problem in my life? Or is it my destiny? Or it was predestined? I am not able to decide. Or is it the wrong choice and decision or past mistakes that I am suffering in my life? I am not satisfied with the present situation in my life. I have never been able to achieve what I wanted in my life. I see myself with lots of potential. I am like all rounder. I am good looking person, I can sing, dance, act, study, play any games etc. But I am not expert in any area. With the increase in weight I am becoming more and more depressed. I don't face people especially with the opposite sex. Inferiority complex has made me sluggish. People see me as lazy. I spend more time watching TV. I don't have any friends that's because I don't trust people. I am reserved kind of person. I want to change my situation but don't know where to start.

You are in charge of your life whatever else happens. You are also in charge of your destiny and you draw up a plan in early childhood that will determine the life path. This is called a script. To really understand your problem in its totality, is to go back home to your family of origin to trace some of the genesis of your problems. You may ignore all my assessments for want of complete evidence, and that is okay. I am not the world’s perfect diagnostic man, nor do I boast of knowing it all. So feel free to take what appeals and dump the rest in the garbage can. In my opinion, I think that your problem lies in the fear of rejection. This rejection is usually founded in your family of origin and is somewhat manifest in some descriptions you have given already. This is not to find fault with your parents: they may have done a lot of things with good intentions but may have inadvertently set up rejection. If you go way back, and see if there was any rejection prenatally or postnatally (again all this with intention or without), the child will pick up the sensation or feel like he is not wanted or even rejected. As you can see, I am presuming all this. You will have to give it substance if you so have the substance. Without reaching to any conclusions, just indulge in this thought to see if there is any semblance of truth to explore it further. Your parents may throw light on this but don’t share too much of what I saying until it has been verified. Also find out, if there was an abortion or miscarriage before or after you were born. Whether you were wanted by both parents at birth. Whether they expected a female child and were disappointed that you were a boy! How long were you breastfed by mom etc? These will all throw some light on my proposal of rejection if there is any truth.
