I drink 3 times a week and my age is 23 so do i have any side effects for this in future?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

Well you do not state how much you drink each time. If you take two drinks at a time, then it is not a problem immediately. If you do not have much self-control in other areas, then one day you will start losing control in your drinking too. Or if you are susceptible to stress, you will increase your drinking. If you have any preconditions to addictions, you will be prone to increase the quantity and frequency of drinking. There are two aspects to consider for addictions: dependence and tolerance. The former is when the mind and the body become too dependent on alcohol to face life, or situations, or stresses. Then you cannot give it up easily or function normally without it. The second feature is that of tolerance, which is common to all addictive substances: as time goes by you will need more quantities to get the same effect. In which case, you will gradually increase the consumption of alcohol over time till you become enslaved to it. If you try to stop it, you will experience withdrawal symptoms which can be very severe too. Regarding side effects there are many, if you go into heavy drinking: you will get an enlarged heart, brain damage with heavy drinking, late to work and lots of absenteeism, accidents while driving or otherwise, marriage problems, health difficulties including cancer of several organs, loss of employments, loss of libido and sexual functions, loss of opportunities etc. The list can go on and on. If you want to read more about addictions you may contact me with a payment of Rs. 250/- for my book on it. Postage is free.

You better to do friendliness with that girl. Friendliness get more satisfaction freedom and enjoyment it is good for your mental status. In love everything is stress. Every movement is stress. It may develop your personal problems. In friendliness you have chance to enjoy so many corners of life. You can directly ask any matter and enjoy with them. I think love is waste for your personality. You have no capacity to control your stress then do not go love. Better to enjoy friendliness. Nothing you will get in love it is waste of time. Unnecessary stress. So please follow my suggestion it will helps to you in all aspects. Ok best of luck.

M suffering from stomach related problem since February this year. M not able to digest my lunch time food properly and I have to rush to the bathroom to poop for the second time in a day. This is happening daily. I have taken antibiotics which helped me to get relief but that was short lived. The problem came back after 4 to 5 days when I had to remain empty stomach for 2 hours. Moreover ; stress seems to worsen the situation. Please help me.

You are certainly looking at depression but a doctor will confirm for sure. Three years is quite a bit of neglect and it is important you meet someo0pne soon. So, you must go and meet with a counselor immediately and if that person advises that you meet with a doctor you must do so and cooperate to your utmost. Please visit these professionals along with your parents. In the meantime please do the following sincerely because you could resolve the problem better with good cooperation: Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber, nuts, avocado, exercise regularly, eat dark chocolate, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. I suggest you do the opposite of what this depression makes you feel like doing (actually, not doing): you will need to fight this condition. You must become active; stay upright during the daylight time; meet people; never sleep during the day, wake up by 6 am every day, play some active games, especially contact games, do physical exercises, talk to people and join some social clubs, attend Yoga classes etc. Watch sitcoms on TV or comedies and cheer yourself up. Go for excursions in groups, for outings, camps, conferences, and religious conventions. Get a pet dog and spend time training it, exercising it and relating to it. Expose yourself to some sunlight every day, at least, 30 minutes but not in the scorching heat. Whatever happens, please incorporate these three important adaptations in your life: always be responsible, be respectful, and be functional. If you did these three, lots of things will go well in life. Please pray and have faith in God to alleviate your sufferings. Don’t wait for others to help. Use your own motivation, which might be at its lowest, but persevere and win this battle. Above all to be really happy, you need to live in love and for love. Learn all about emotions and how to handle them and that will get you out of the depression rather easily and quickly. A counselor is there only to facilitate you, all the hard word must come from you, and your cooperation with that person is very critical for your success. Be positive every day and learn to be contented with what you have. Do some left brain exercises: it is the happy brain. Here are a few suggestions: 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. Whatever happens please cooperate with the therapy and do not discontinue until the condition is completely resolved.

I am not very active going lazzy every day what to do and my nerves system is getting slow and also I forgot tings its very difficult to remember any thing.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Strategies for Remembering 1. Become interested in what you're learning. We're all better remembering what interests us. Few people, for example, have a difficult time remembering the names of people they find attractive. If you're not intrinsically interested in what you're learning or trying to remember, you must find a way to become so. 2. Find a way to leverage your visual memory. You'll be surprised by how much more this will enable you to remember. For example, imagine you're at a party and are introduced to five people in quick succession. How can you quickly memorize their names? Pick out a single defining visual characteristic of each person and connect it to a visual representation of their name, preferably through an action of some kind. Remember: Memory is predominantly visual. 3. Create a mental memory tree. If you're trying to memorize a large number of facts, find a way to relate them in your mind visually with a memory tree. Construct big branches first, then leaves. Branches and leaves should carry labels that are personally meaningful to you in some way, and the organization of the facts ("leaves") should be logical.. 4. Associate what you're trying to learn with what you already know. It seems the more mental connections we have to a piece of information, the more successful we'll be in remembering it. This is why using mnemonics. Write out the items to be memorized over and over and over. 5. When reading for retention, summarize each paragraph in the margin. This requires you to think about what you're reading, recycle it, and teach it to yourself again. Even take the concepts you're learning and reason forward with them; apply them to imagined novel situations, which creates more neural connections to reinforce the memory. 6. Do most of your studying in the afternoon. Though you may identify yourself as a "morning person" or "evening person" at least one Study. suggests your ability to memorize isn't influenced as much by what time of day you perceive yourself to be most alert but by the time of day you actually study—afternoon appearing to be the best. 7. Get adequate sleep to consolidate and retain memories. Not just at night after you've studied but the day, you study as well. Far better to do this than to stay up cramming all night for an exam.

I am diagnosed by my doctor as to have bipolar disorder. I am under medication for last 9 months. But I am still depressed. I am prescribed to take Divalproex Sodium 250 m. G. And Fluoxetine 40 mg a day. What should I do?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
It can be a crippling disease if not treated, and if treated early, the prognosis is good. So quickly visit a counsellor apart from your psychiatrist and you must then follow the medication and therapy prescribed. Comply with all the medical prescriptions and work in tandem with a counselor for a long time and learn coping skills and techniques to handle the daily challenges you will face. There are certain adaptations that will suit you during the elation phase and there are certain behaviors that are required during the depressed phases. In the meantime, you can do certain things that will give you benefits anyway. Emotional therapy will alleviate a lot of the problems faced in this condition because it is a mood disorder. You need to particularly look at your levels of anger both for its reasonableness and to express it in an appropriate manner. I suspect that much of this anger may have origins in early childhood that you may never be aware of now. Talk to your parents and explore that angle. This information will help the counselor too. Also, you will need to check whether there is any genetic factor involved. You must exercise regularly, eat healthily and sleep normally too. If your motivation and cooperation are good much can be achieved. You must have a time-structured schedule filled with interesting and reasonable activities and it must be monitored for compliance and delivery. The reason I say this is that many times you will be inclined to have grandiose notions and confidently believe that you are doing fine and that you can do without the medication. This will set you back many months in the treatment and delay and sabotage the recovery: forewarned you are forearmed. If this combination of medication with therapy is maintained for at least three years without any episodes or breakdowns, it is possible to taper the medication in consonance with the doctor.

I am a 27 years old female. I got married one and a half years back. I am a working woman. For the last two years my health is deteriorating. Its reflecting on my face in particular. I have always been thin. My body structure still remains the same but somehow my face is like degenerating. I am losing my looks. My skin is darkening continuously. I have a lot of pain in my legs all the time as well as a little pain in my body all over. My periods are irregular. Earlier they used to be after 2-2. 5 months. Nowadays for the last one year or so they lag by around 10-12 days. During my six months courtship I had seen two doctors as my health started getting affected and every one was saying bridal glow is missing. No issues from me being happy with the marriage or not, absolutely fine there. But the doctor gave me few medicines which I came to know dealt with depression. Moreover at that time I skipped my periods for around 3 months. After testing it came out to be polycystic ovary syndrome. I started medication, but discontinued as I felt it did not suit me and I started keeping unwell and my wedding day was approaching. At that I fell very ill with not feeling like being around people. I wanted to just sleep and be alone. Byt right after my wedding I was very fine. But of late I have a feeling at times that I am not happy. I want to cry. I suddenly become sad. I infact think a lot. If any one around me is not smiling or not talking to me I think that person is angry at me and get tensed. I feel mostly people must be talking bad about me. Earlier I never used to get angry. But now I get angry and pissed off at smallest of things. I feel suffocated at times and also feel heavy weight on my head. I dont shout out my anger but burn inside. I myself feel my blood burning when I get angry or feel like crying. I have a continuous feeling of my short comings and incapabilities and feel no one is happy with me. I also get jealous if someone is good at something particularly in which I lag like talking to people. I am an introvert and cannot striike a conversation. So if someone is very talkative I get angry. I am drowsy very often and I can sleep 24*7. I am not sure what am I suffering from if suffering at all. In text it may sound very severe though it is not that high as it appears. Please help.

There is a four step process to determining if you may suffer from alcohol intolerance. Remember that only a doctor can officially diagnose you and your symptoms, but the following can help you determine if you may be suffering from alcohol intolerance. Describe symptoms keep a close eye on what symptoms you suffer around the time you have consumed alcohol. Also, be sure to know your genetic history of family members with allergies. Conduct a physical examination being carefully examined by a doctor can determine exactly what the cause may be, while dismissing other possible options. Take a skin test this is a method of testing for allergic reactions to various products, such as grains. If your skin becomes raised or starts having rashes after being pricked with a small of the product you may be allergic to you, then you will have discovered precisely what elements in an alcoholic drink you are allergic to, so you can know what to avoid. Take a blood test another test that can determine not only allergies, but also the state of your immune system, is a blood test. This type of test will look for immunoglobulin antibodies, those that fight off allergies, but it is not always an accurate test.

I'm fed up with life. Life is not worth living for me. I'm not living life but just passing it. I'm worthy of nothing. There is a lack of happiness lack of confidence lack of concentration. There is no hope no enlightenment no dream no aim in life. I'm very much disinterested, very much disheartened. I'm sailing in a boat without the sailor in the stormy sea. I'm just like the kite which strings are cutoff. I'm skipping my drugs for the high blood pressure. My blood pressure shoots up to 200/130 without any symptoms.

Depression is very common in today's life but breaking down in stress is not the solution, think about those people who are sleeping in the footpaths who don't even know whether they will get today's bread or not, life is very important, help someone needy bring smile in face of helpless people, you will get internal peace and you will forget your tensions, also don't ignore your high bp, have medicines regularly but don't make it as habit better go for homoeopathic constitutional treatment which will cure you permanently since homoeopathic medicines act very nicely on brain and mind also.

I have violent mood swings. During any conversation if any thing is said against me or a different opinion is expressed against my opinion I become angry and violent and vulgar speech comes out of me. I am very particular and perfectionist in my work and if other family members do not follow it I get angry. What to do ? If this is psychological disorder then suggest a Doctor in Jaipur.

Dear lybrate-user, memory and mind power consists of understanding, storage and recollection of information you learn. Understanding depends on concentration. The more creative you are on doing tasks or reading, the more you understand. Storage and recollection depends on your understanding and how well you review what you have learned. Repetition and review of material learned and other tasks provide easy recollection. You can improve your concentration and total brain power with the help of green leafy vegetables, exercise, creative activities, number puzzles like sudoku etc. Hard work is the key to learning and recollection. Take care.

I'm 23 years old male. I'm unable to pronounce the letters r, re,RU, ir pls help me to find the solutions pls.

MBBS
General Physician, Mumbai
One of the main reasons for difficulty to pronounce is fear and anxiety. Reduce your speed of speech for now, thus the pronouncing difficulty would decrease and fluency of your speech would become better. When fluency of speech reaches normal, then you gradually increase speed of speech, thus the overall speech can become as original. Because stress and anxiety increases difficulty of speech, you should also do transcendental meditation. How meditation affects health? it has been scientifically proved that meditation not only helps the mind but also body because controlled mind and purification of consciousness leads to better lifestyle and improved habits of food, sleep etc which in turn leads to better overall health. Most diseases have their roots in uncontrolled mind and impure consciousness. So do transcendental meditation by finding and reading iskcon books, either from internet and/or from your nearest iskcon center. Hope this helps,

It looks like she is smarting after the breakup. I think that you should move on rather quickly and for that you need to take some measures. You must deal with all your feelings you had around her and clear it out of your system. Remove all the gifts, reminders of her, and give it away or destroy them. Avoid places, situations, companions, and occasions that you two used to frequent, at least for some time. Meet a lot with other friends whom you might have neglected all these months and renew the contacts all over again. Please do not bad mouth her to anyone and just say that we broke up for some good reasons and you are okay with that. Start an exercise regimen and get on with your studies, and career building, with a renewed vigor. Do not get into another relationship as yet, and if the feelings for this girl continue to haunt you, please meet with a counselor and share them with that person. In time this will all be history and you will be happy you moved on.
