Hi I will prescribe some harmless but effective flower remedy available in homoeopathy shops. Try to buy original medicines. Mix 3 drops of mimulus + 3 drops of rock rose + 3 drops of aspen. Mix these with 100 ml water and drink it every morning and night.(same dose) on empty stomach.

Dear lybrate user, I think it must have been very difficult for you to take insults in the form of teasing. Beating etc since childhood. I sense that these insults have impacted you a lot. Probably no one appreciated you till now. As a result you have low self esteem and low confidence. It appears to me that you believe in what people say about you, hence you think that you are weak and coward. According to me, the reason why you do not retaliate is, that is what your parents/teachers or other elders at home told you to do. Probably, because of your low self esteem, you also thought that you'deserve' this kind of treatment. Though you were angry, you did not fight back, because you thought you were physically weak as well. Emotional abuse is more hurtful than physical abuse. Even if people are making fun of your squint, please accept it as your reality. And look at yourself as a" whole" person and you will realise that you are lucky to have a healthy, normal body. Now please understand that, you are 22 and an adult and not small/weak anymore. Try to get enough physical strength with the help of good nutrition and exercise. Then you will not feel weak, physically. Then make a list of your strengths, that you think you have, read it everyday. Do not take negativity from anyone. Believe in yourself. No one is" born" weak emotionally/morally. The life experiences cause this weakness. Now you need to take charge of your life. Tell yourself that you are valuable. You have many skills/strengths. Keep yourself away from people who try to pull you down. Be with the people who have positive attitude towards life. Only you can help yourself - try to gain more physical and emotional strength. All the best.

Being fearful, will make you avoid situations which can effect your overall quality of life and not just your career. The more you avoid the more situation will get worse, so it is like a vicious circle. If you find difficult to express yourself in social situations, it is important for you to consult a psychologist, who can help you overcome this.

It must be very painful for you to have let go of a relationship that you were holding on for long time sailing through the ups and downs of the same. You have grieved for really long, 15 months is too long! about time to let go of her, she has clearly indicated that she has moved on and you should too. Ups and downs are good acid tests for relationships, you may also need to see your role in them. Learn from your mistakes and give life another chance. You may need to forgive and forget her, not for her sake but for yours. This is your life and what you want to do with it, depends on you. Whether you choose to ruin it because your girl friend has left you or you want to give priority to other important things in life like your studies, then career, your family etc is up to you. I'm sure you value your parents, your studies and other people around you, and who might be there to support you and care for you. Life is beautiful and you have choice to make it even more beautiful. So throw away any gift or pic or things you may have of her, delete her contact num and don't try to connect with her. Do it not because you want to hate her but because you want to free yourself from those memories. Don't hold any kind of grudge against her either. Just let her go from your mind. Don't try hard to forget. Just look at other things around you that need your attention, go around with friends, have fun, make schedule for your studies, set goals for your career, dream big. And when you focus on all the goods around you and the loving people that you have, forgetting her won't be difficult. Indulge in self care and love yourself. Take care.

I have breathing problem during night. Most of the time it feels like I am not able to breathe at all and might die due to lack of oxygen.

Hi lybrate-user. It appears that you are having panic attacks. It is a common problem and mostly result from misinterpretation of normal bodily symptoms. One would need to understand your symptoms in more details. Like when it started, in what circumstances do you get these symptoms, any symptom in between the attack. Very effective treatment is available for these symptoms. Meet a nearby psychiatrist.

To combat stress and anxiety shall one take multivitamin or a good nutritional supplement daily and are there any side effects of taking a nutritional supplement daily for a longer period of time.

Only certain vitamins and nutrients are said to have good effects on anxiety and stress. However there is no documentary evidence to substantiate these findings. There is no harm in taking some vitamins like the ones of b complex group because these are water soluble and can be easily washed out from the body. But whether they are useful for daily use is questionable. Some other nutrients like vitamin a and vitamin d may accumulate in body if taken unnecessarily or in larger amounts. Hence it is advisable to use any supplement under the supervision of a doctor only.

Antidepressants do not have side effects which cannot be managed. Depression has worse effects on health and general well being of a person than side effects of medications if any. Lithium tests are advised usually if you already are taking any medications for your problem. It is a mood stabilizer and used for resistant relapsing depressions or bipolar disorders. Consult online for any queries and assistance.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. Your studies broke due to unavoidable circumstances. You are never the reason. You must understand those reasons and try to recap those lost portions. I know it may not be possible fully. But you can do it somehow. Don't worry about those exams now. Just get as much knowledge as you can and go write the exams. You always have your supplementary. I suggest you to have online counseling. Take care.

Dear lybrate user, welcome to lybrate. Memory and mind power depends mainly on three aspects. Understanding, storage and recollection. To understand what you are studying, you must be able to be attentive or concentrate. Concentration is possible when you are interested in that subject. Creative way of learning can help you concentrate and understand easily. When you are able to understand and concentrate, it is stored within your brain. If you read more and more it will be store in long term memory. Third part is retrieval. Whenever you want to retrive what you learned and stored, your brain gets the request, searches the database and retrieves the information for you. The retrieval may prove to be difficult if you are anxious, stressed, worried or tired physically or mentally. Retrieval is more easy when you are relaxed and healthy. Brain needs nutrients to keep itself sharp. Fruits, vegetables and dry fruits provide much needed nutrients for your brain. Include at least one fruit in your daily diet. Physical exercises, entertainment, hobbies, relaxation, memory games like sudoku etc help keep your memory sharp and active. Take care.

Dear lybrate-user, Welcome to Lybrate. Tobacco is addictive. Cigarette also contains 4000+ carcinogenic chemicals other than nicotine. Nicotine and other chemicals can cause cancer of different types and areas. Throat cancer, mouth cancer, lung cancer, stomach cancer and brain problems can result. Over and above smoking may also increase the risk factor of heart attack and brain stroke. Please quit smoking. The best method is to leave it and continue with your will power. There are other methods like Nicotine Replacement therapy and pharmacotherapy combined. If you’re ready to stop smoking and willing to get the support you need, you can recover from nicotine addiction and abuse abuse—no matter how bad the addiction or how powerless you feel. The first step in treating nicotine addiction is accepting that you have a problem. Confronting an addiction and accepting responsibility for your actions isn’t easy. But it’s a necessary step on the road to treatment and recovery. You should then consult a psychiatrist / psychologist who fill follow this treatment. 1. Detoxification using medicines. 2. Behavior modification with the help of therapies. 3. Counseling. 4. Medication to sustain and 5. Long term support. These given steps are essential for any addict to get effectively rid of smoking. Therefore, you need to stick to the treatment plan and cooperate with your psychiatrist / psychologist. Mind power building therapy, motivation therapy etc should help you doing so. I suggest you to consult a psychologist or de addiction therapist. Take care.
