Take him to a psychiatrist promptly. If it is extreme as you say and it is delayed, he may then begin to distort reality. When that happens he may even slip into psychosis. Do not delay. Simultaneously let him seek talk therapy with someone who is trained to deal with paranoia.

Dear lybrate-user, all whatever you have mentioned are stressors of life. The stress can be eustress or distress. For many of your classmates these things are eustress to make the best of engineers. If it is distress for you, you need to undergo stress management technique from a clinical psychologist. Remember, it is not the stressor like academic pressure which causes distress in you. It is your bodily reaction to academic pressure which causes distress. Of course chronic distress causes not only diabetes but many other health effects. Try and manage your stresses better. All the best.

Hello sir. I am very sorry for your loss. We all go through the process of mourning and have thoughts of those who have left us. We get distressed during the initial few months but gradually, we learn to accept our loss and cherish the fond memories. If we fight to block the thoughts, then this would trouble us more. Let the thoughts come, and. Let them go. Do not try to modify your experience. This will help in reducing your distress. You will gradually learn this, but keep trying. You can take deep and slow breaths, try yoga or other form of meditation to keep you relaxed. Keep doing your routine work. Do exercise. Eat healthy, sleep well. Avoid much of tea/coffee. Keep in touch with your family and friends. Just try to be" normal" with time, you will definitely get better. Please take care.

Good morning. I am getting irritation with my daughters behavior. Going into depression.
I don't know what your daughter'sd behavior is all about. But for your depression please do the following: 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.

My 3 years old daughter doesn't speak much. She says words to explain what she wants but she doesn't talk fluently. She is good with her motor skill, body balance. She even tries to trick me. I'm a single parent. My ex husband was violent with me in front of my daughter till she was around 2 years old. Is it possible that violence that my daughter has witnessed has effected her growth or language skill in someway. Also I work long hours each day, I hardly give my daughter 3-4 hrs a day. She is mostly with her maid. Should I seek some psychological treatment for my daughter?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

Yes, the divorce and all the violence she has witnessed will have a bearing on this child. Being a girl child, she will also miss her father quite a bit now, and more later. It does not help that you don?t have much time to give her too. These years are most important to her and any way you can spend more time with her will diminish the total impact to a reasonable level, at least. Believe me, this is an investment with good dividends: otherwise you are looking at paying a great price for her and yourself, later. At this age she must talk incessantly, so this break up is certainly impacting her. She is angry and probably very sad. Divorce is always bad for the adults and worse for the kids. You have a responsibility to help her tide over the effects of this huge void in her life. You cannot obviously be father and mother to her, so a male figure around her will somewhat compensate this loss. You could go to a child psychologist both for assessment and some therapy. Don?t try to delay helping her on any front because it is easier to set things right as a preventive measure than as a curative one. She is already in a disturbed state but further negligence will lead to serious situations that at a later time even curative efforts may only nudge the issues and make it very difficult to do real justice.

You may be under some stress, and you may not be aware of it. Find out what this disturbance is all about 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 callisthenic 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 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. 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. The following foods do help too: Blueberries, walnuts, turmeric, Spinach, tomatoes, broccoli, acorn squash, green tea, oily fish, boiled egg, turkey, apples, oatmeal, leafy greens, lentils, pumpkin seeds, avocado, cinnamon, thyme, sunflower seeds, and red wine.

Dear, reassure your self, the time you feel like smoking, chew a cadamium or a peach. If you have symtomatic problem because of not smoking, there are nicotine chewing gums available, chew them when required. If you smoke and you feel it is must reduce the number of puffs and increase the duration of puff and along with the above measures you will drastically reduce smoking and if you have the determination you will ultimately give it up.

Dear Lybrate user. I can understand. Memory and mindpower depends on three important factors. They are understanding, retention and recollection. You should be able to understand the passage or the information given perfectly so as to help your brain to retain the information or knowledge. Once it is retained properly, recollection happens whenever a memory relation is given. Understanding usually requires creative learning methods and repetition. Providing rest to your brain every half hour while studying continuously help improve concentration. Physical exercises, entertainment, socialization improves memory. Diet which includes fruits, vegetables, nuts also improves memory. Mind games like Sudoku too help. Please understand these facts and apply them on your daily routine. Take care.

Your mother's death must have been a very devastating experience for you. Mother's love and support is indespensible and losing your mother must have created a void in your life. Like you have mentioned, it is huge trauma for you and your father and truma has almost life long impact on the lives of the survivors. It is important to know how you reacted after her death if you have not cried or not shared/expressed you sad feelings then, it might create problems in future for you. Please allow yourself to feel all the pain and express your feelings. Trauma creates an" emotional wound" which has to be treated like a" physical wound" when someone is physically injured and has a deep wound, the doctor needs to apply medicines, and clean the wound periodically. This experience is very very painful for the patient, but if the patient does not do this, then it can create further complications. Emotional wounds are also like this. People many times prefer not to talk about it, suppress it, deny the pain. But this does not help. Like the physical wound, emotional wound needs dressing - which is understanding and talking about the pain. By expressing (by talking or crying) you will relieve your pain. Kindly do that. You can support your father and seek emotional support from him. You both need some more time to come out of it. If possible talk to a counsellor, who will help you understand death and the process of grief. Cherish the good times and memories you shared with your mother. While keeping her memories close to your heart, try to move on with life. Try to accomplish your mother's dreams for you. All the best and take care.

I Lost Somebody Last Year And I Keep Feeling Depressed. What Should I Do Not Have To Do.
Dear lybrate user. Welcome to lybrate. I can understand. Loosing someone near and dear is called grief and depression related to grief is pretty normal. But this sort of depression does not stay for long. This depression gets cleared within a span of some weeks. The best option for you is to undergo counseling and depression related therapy. Anyhow, there is nothing to worry. Most of the psychological problems can be cured with scientific therapy methods. Take care.
