Dear Lybrate user lybrate-user ,every thing happens for reason so there must be some reason for your sadness, may be due to any reason or lonliness or bitter exprience with friends or anyone. We can not make everyone happy its just impossible what maximum any one can do is to make himself/herself happy, and its everyone's right is to be happy we cannot change the thinking of people or situation around us but we can get the things or reasons which make us happy. We get only one life after that we don't know what will happen in future, what we can do is to live every second of life, what do you want to be, what do you want to eat, to do, your career, your friends, your likings etc. Develop some hobby, make some good friends, make yourself busy, as much you will think you will get frustrate and will gain nothing, live only for yourself, and this can be possible when you will involve yourself in some other things first start from joining any hobby class and make any good friend with whom you can share everything .you can take help of any counsellor ,you can also contact me regarding this. Take care.

Night falls are physiological at males of your age if they occur once in a while, say once once in 15-20 days. This usually occurs due to overflow incontinence during sleep. Night falls do not cause any adverse effects on the body. However if you have frequent night falls and feel like having pe too then you should certainly contact a psychiatrist for treatment. Treatment includes a short course of medications and practicing some exercises that help in controlling night emissions and premature ejaculations.

I'm an 18 year old student. I think I have OCD. Whenever I study, I repeat the simplest of the words over and over again until I satisfy myself that it sounds the same and is the same word which I read. It is frustrating to repeat words like "development" in my head to make sure that it is the same word that I'm seeing in my book. The same goes for learning and understanding things. If I don't repeat anything many times and visualise even the simplest thing​, then I get scared that I'm going to forget it and I'm dragged into a vicious cycle of repeating the same stuff. This wastes a lot of my time and decreases my efficiency. Kindly suggest something. Thanks.

Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) is a common mental health problem. Symptoms typically include recurring thoughts and repetitive actions in response to the recurring thoughts. A common example is recurring thoughts about germs and dirt, with a need to wash your hands repeatedly to "clean off the germs" repeating something in mind, counting, checking, etc. However, there are many other examples. The usual treatments are cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI) antidepressant medicine, or both. Treatment often works well to reduce the symptoms and distress of OCD greatly. Consult a psychiatrist. All the best.

Now a days although looks matters but what matters more is your being successful in life, so your age is to be serious regarding your carrier rather than for a girl, first try to reach a height where you know that she will not avoid you and this can only be done with your efforts in building up your future-------------it is very easy to love but most difficult to feed your family, to fulfil their demands-------------------------------so be practical and think practical---------------

Sir, my fingers usually shake slightly even when without tension or stress. What's the reason for this?
Dear lybrate-user, I can understand your problem. Diseases that commonly cause shaky hands include parkinson's disease, overactive thyroid (hyperthyroidism), and multiple sclerosis. Shaky hands may occur after ingesting or withdrawing from certain drugs or substances, such as alcohol and caffeine. You are too young for parkinson. You need to check your thyroid. Please consult a physician. Take care.

Hello doctor, My question is what is bipolar I m talking tablet since 7 year is it cure completely or not.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
I don’t know when the last time you reviewed the medication with your doctor was. If it was a long time back, kindly go to the doctor and ask for a review, after describing the symptoms. Now I suspect that along with the medicine, you are not doing some therapy as well, am I right? In that case, it is very important for you to seek some counseling help for bipolar, and learn some skills and techniques to cope with life. Particularly, I would recommend some work on emotions. When you have done this for three years at least, without any symptoms or relapses, you could look at gradually weaning yourself off of the medication, with the doctor’s help and recommendation, and monitoring. The combination of medicine and therapy is very potent. You will be put on a schedule of activities, exercises, socializing, and dealing with your emotions.

Are you illiterate? Then you could have a problem in this highly competitive work environment. If you have been laid off for just a few months, then do not get discouraged. If you have been fired, you may have a real problem. Otherwise, do persevere and actively seek employment according to your aptitude. Sometimes you may have to take up any job for the time being and keep on the lookout for a more suitable one that meets your career aspirations. Depending on your field of work, things may be easy or difficult. Giving up is never the right course. Life is a fight always but a disciplined approach will take you far and wide. If in the interim you are able to develop some more skills or attend courses that would enhance your marketability and make your r�sum� read even better, please undertake to do them. You could always explain to prospective employers that you used your time well and productively. That sure will impress companies and provide you with suitable openings. Of course, there are a lot of self-employment opportunities that anyone can do anytime, if they are determined and have some seed money: No qualifications, no literacy, no handicaps. You will be your own master and your results will depend entirely on you.

M.S. Counselling and Psychotherapy

Keep listening to sanskrit shlokas and reciting them. Many times stammering is a result of low self confidence. You need to be aware of your strengths and try to improve upon your skills. You may take an appointment with a counsellor.

You need to consult a psychiatrist and get you depression evaluated, whether mild, moderate or severe. Or the word depressed is a common everyday word. People might say" i'm depressed" when in fact they mean" i'm fed up because i've had a row, or failed an exam, or lost my job" etc. These ups and downs of life are common and normal. Most people recover quite quickly. With true depression, you have a low mood and other symptoms each day for at least two weeks consult a psychiatrist and get evaluated.

I was a happy and good minded guy still somewhat I am but its gone bad when somehow I started spending most of my time at home . My cousin gave me all kinds of Hollywood TV series and I was never this guy of giving such time to any kind of series but I started watching them everyday and 5 hours a day . It all started 2 years back . I saw a lot of changes in me at that time , I started going late and I was unable to get rid of it. I started spending giving time to TV series and I started liking it a lot. Because of all this I never felt but I had developed social anxiety issue . I was not believing at first that a guy like me I was use to so confident and had killer instinct , how was I having social anxiety and somewhere still it is present in me . Whenever I have to go out for some work I hated going out . All this was because I started blushing for no good reason . In metro whenever any one use to stare at me I started blushing but earlier it was not a big deal . Even in simple conversation I use to go red and it was awkward very awkward for me . Its been 2 years now I always had fight with it . I never used any drug . Now its much better to some extent but still even today whenever I am put on spot it happens again . I do not know even if I could get rid of it completely . I just want it to be over .

Yes, you can get rid of it completely. This is particularly true, because, in the past you were that way. It can be done either with or without medicines depending upon your choice. F you want a more rapid effect, medicines can be combined with psychotherapy or advanced counseling or behavior therapy. So the bottomline is it is completely possible to make you the way you were earlier. If you only want to take medicines, I will need a few more details like any other medical or psychological problem that you have or may have had earlier, history of bipolar disorder either in yourself and your family. These issues are best addressed in an in person interview, but if it is not possible, a somewhat toned down version can be tried online as well. It is upto you, take care!

During depression one looses the power to experience any emotion. But what if mind just learns to embrace depression because the reality seems too harsh to bear? So mind just steps back into the emotionless state so as to be devoid of any feelings? What's d solution to the problem.

During depression one looses the power to experience any emotion. But what if mind just learns to embrace depression ...
Psychotherapy is the solution. It is very convenient to be in your shell and letting everyone else look after you. Whenever we have a secondary gain we accept things the way they are instead of changing without realizing how much harm it is causing and will cause in longer run. Through psychotherapy we can get in roots of the problem and challenge your irrational thinking. There are better ways to deal with situation and problem instead of escaping by being emotionless. Consult a psychologist for your problem. You can consult me too.

It is normal for the brain to have thoughts. The only way to control it is to ignore the thought and understand it is just a thought and has no greater power on your mind and self and in the bigger scheme of things. Stay focused on the present and at the activity on hand, not on the thought which like you yourself said is bad.

Sir, I'm want to know that how to improve brain memory and to keep our body fit and healthy

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Daily exercise of at least half an hour is a must. Even if you go to a gym, ask for aerobic exercise 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, 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. Have a special place of learning, which should be well lit, with soft painted walls, well-ventilated, with no distractions. When you get bored, study by writing. If you repeat learning at least five to seven times, you will apparently remember for a longer time. Sit comfortably but do not slouch. The reading material should be of a fairly large print. Study at small intervals of about 40 minutes and then take a break or change the subject. 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. There are some memory enhancing techniques and study methods that your teacher will be able to guide you with. Recently they have discovered that moderate consumption of red wine and peanuts do help.

I want to stop drinking alcohol and I want stop smoking also please give suggestion.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You must, on a war footing, exercise restraint and stop the use of all these substances. Since you have probably tried and found it extremely difficult I suggest you do one of the following: It sounds like you are in an advanced stage of alcoholism and tobacco use and need admission to a rehabilitation center to ideally help deal with this problem. There are no guarantees about stopping one’s addiction. But that does not mean we should not keep at it, over and over again until we succeed. Now it is difficult to give up all by yourself because you have become addicted to alcohol and tobacco and there is so much to do. Under such circumstances it is best that you admit yourself into a de-addiction center and stay there for at least 6 months and after that you can attend counseling with a professional. There are medicines that help with the drinking just to ease the initial craving and to act as an antabuse i.e. you will have a serious reaction, if you consume even a small quantity of alcohol or alcohol based substances. It has to be carefully monitored to see that you do not only consume the medication but you are also avoiding alcohol. Ultimately, it is your will power and the support that you receive from the medical fraternity and your close and dear ones. You must also learn to substitute and deal with the oral need, a rigid value system, the script issue, and of course take a look at all the genetic factors to plan a strategy not to get into what is called ‘cross addictions’ i.e. another form of addiction that may appear alright but is in fact as bad as the primary addiction. The center or hospital and the counselor will advise and guide you on several measures and precautions you will need to take to stay with your resolve. Even after the rehabilitation you must attend AA meetings and continue this support for a long time. The family will also need to attend some sessions and go for Al-anon meetings for their co-dependency issues. You cannot be treated in isolation because the family has gotten used to your drinking in particular and have made some unhealthy adaptations to somehow cope. Make a serious plan with whoever else’s support you can get and act on it fast. If you are not cooperative, there are some centers that will come and pick you up, after you are completely drunk, and admit you by force. This will however, require the wife and family’s consent. Do not delay for any reason and stop fooling around with half decisions.
