If you do not have any other medical problems, not on any other medicines, have no history of any other psychiatric illness or family history of bipolar disorder, in good faith I can suggest you some medicines. You can take prodep 20 mg one capsule after breakfast daily for 5 days and then increase it to two capsules. However, I strongly recommend that at some point you take a proper psychiatric consultation. Take care!

Dyslexia - Warning Signs That Your Kid Is Suffering From It!

Psychologist, Indore
Dyslexia - Warning Signs That Your Kid Is Suffering From It!

Raising a child with dyslexia can stir up a lot of emotions. You may look ahead and wonder if this learning issue will affect your child's future. But dyslexia is not a prediction of failure. Dyslexia is quite common, and many successful individuals have dyslexia.

Research has proven that there are different ways of teaching that can help people with dyslexia succeed. There's a lot you can do as a parent too.

What are the symptoms of dyslexia?

Because dyslexia affects some people more severely than others, your child's symptoms may look different from those in another child. Some kids with dyslexia have trouble with reading and spelling. Others may struggle to write or to tell left from right.

Dyslexia can also make it difficult for people to express themselves clearly. It can be hard for them to structure their thoughts during conversation. They may have trouble finding the right words to say.

Others struggle to understand what they're hearing. This is especially true when someone uses nonliteral language such as jokes and sarcasm.

The signs you see may also look different at various ages. Some of the warning signs for dyslexia, such as a speech delay, appear before a child reaches kindergarten. More often, though, dyslexia is identified in grade school. As schoolwork gets more demanding, trouble processing language becomes more apparent.

Here are some signs to look out for:

  • Warning Signs in Preschool or Kindergarten
  • Has trouble recognizing the letters of the alphabet
  • Struggles to match letters to sounds, such as not knowing what sounds b or h make
  • Has difficulty blending sounds into words, such as connecting C-H-A-T to the word chat

  • Gets tripped up by word problems in math
  • Has a tough time sounding out unfamiliar words
  • Has trouble following a sequence of directions

Warning Signs in High School-

  • Struggles with reading out loud
  • Doesn't read at the expected grade level
  • Has trouble understanding jokes or idioms
  • Has difficulty organizing and managing time
  • Struggles to summarize a story
  • Has difficulty learning a foreign language

Skills that are affected by Dyslexia-

Dyslexia doesn't just affect reading and writing. Here are some everyday skills and activities your child may be struggling with because of this learning issue:

  • Seems to "Zone out" or daydream often; gets lost easily or loses track of time.
  • Difficulty sustaining attention; seems "hyper" or "daydreamer."
  • Learns best through hands-on experience, demonstrations, experimentation, observation, and visual aids.

  • Reading or writing shows repetitions, additions, transpositions, omissions, substitutions, and reversals in letters, numbers and/or words.
  • Complains of feeling or seeing non-existent movement while reading, writing, or copying.
  • Seems to have difficulty with vision, yet eye exams don't reveal a problem.
  • Extremely keen sighted and observant, or lacks depth perception and peripheral vision.

Reads and rereads with little comprehension:

  • Spells phonetically and inconsistently.
  • Hearing and Speech Skills
  • Has extended hearing; hears things not said or apparent to others; easily distracted by sounds.
  • Difficulty putting thoughts into words; speaks in halting phrases; leaves sentences incomplete; stutters under stress; mispronounces long words, or transposes phrases, words, and syllables when speaking.

Writing and Motor Skills:

What can be done at home for dyslexia?

Helping your child with dyslexia can be a challenge, particularly if you're never been confident in your own reading and writing skills. But you don't have to be an expert to help work on certain skills or strengthen your child's self-esteem.

Keep in mind that kids (and families) are all different, so not all options will work for you. Don't panic if the first strategies you try aren't effective. You may need to try several approaches to find what works best for your child. Here are some things you can try at home:

  • Read out loud every day
  • Tap into your child's interests
  • Use audiobooks
  • Look for apps and other high-tech help
  • Focus on effort, not outcome
  • Make your home reader-friendly
  • Boost confidence

What can make the journey easier?

Dyslexia can present challenges for your child and for you. But with the proper support, almost all people with dyslexia can become accurate readers. Your involvement will help tremendously.

Wherever you are in your journey, whether you're just starting out or are well on your way, this site can help you find more ways to support your child. Here are a few things that can help make the journey easier:

  • Connect with other parents. Remember that you're not alone. Use our safe online community to find parents like you.
  • Get behavior advice. Parenting Coach offers expert-approved strategies on a variety of issues that can affect children with dyslexia, including trouble with time management, anxiety and fear, frustration and low self-esteem.
  • Build a support plan. Come up with a game plan and anticipate what lies ahead.

Understanding dyslexia and looking for ways to help your child is an important first step. There's a lot you can do just don't feel you have to do everything all at once. Pace yourself. If you try a bunch of strategies at the same time, it might be hard to figure out which ones are working. And do your best to stay positive. Your love and support can make a big difference in your child's life.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Dear Lybrate user, Tobacco is addictive. Cigarette also contains 4000+ carcinogenic chemicals other than nicotine. There are no medicines or short cuts available to keep your health intact while continue smoking. 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. But still you will need will power. You may consult a physician or deaddiction therapist or a rehabilitation facility for further advise. Take care.

Hello Doctor, I am 32 years old widow as I lost my hubby after 4 months of marriage in 2016. I was working with BPO but left after marriage. I moved to my sisters house after I lost my hubby as my in laws did not give my hubby money to me at all. It was an against love marriage and family still not aware of it. I do not have any savings and arguments happen btwn me and my family for me to get married when I do not even like the guy. Sometimes me and my sister also argue for small normal day-to-day things. I found a guy who is a seafarer but he wants me to work so I am doing my further studies. Now my parents do not support me much as my Boy friend belongs to different caste. I always had differences between me n my parents almost since 7 years back. I am very much depressed and feel very lonely and I even get thoughts to kill myself but I divert my mind because I know that only Strong woman can face all these. I still keep crying locking myself in a room and do not let anyone know. I am not able to concentrate on studies, I get distracted and disturbed. I get pressure from family to get married, get pressure from BF to make career and make savings, arguments btwn me n sister. I am fed up with life. Please suggest me what to do as I want to make my career and be independent and bloom in future. I want to show everyone that what I am capable of. I had enough taunts from everyone. I am 32 years old, 153 Inches, 76 Kg. On a medication--using Acenac, ST-cort, Ginkomat and calcirest M. Thank you.

I must appreciate you for gaining back the strength and thinking about your self and moving on in life. Your present condition calls for immediate attention. Kindly consult a Clinical Psychologist. Clinical Psychologist will conduct a detailed psychological evaluation and conduct therapy sessions with you. He or she will guide you to the right path. You are a 32 years old mature lady who very well can take decision for herself. If you don't like a guy then don't force yourself for marriage just because your family wants you too. Complete your education and look for a job. As that will give you a sense of security and will make you independent.

Cannabis An Ancient Treatment For Epilepsy

Advance Course in Neuro linguistic Programming, Diploma In Dyslexic Studies, Masters In Psychological Counselling
Psychologist, Mumbai

Cbd oil for epilepsy

Cannabis indica and cannabis sativa have been used therapeutically for thousands of years, including for the treatment of epilepsy. Today, cannabis is viewed as a controversial medical subject - thanks in large part to prohibition and decades of misinformation - but prior to 1937's 'marihuana tax act' cannabis was accepted by doctors and patients as a true medicine, and considered one of the safest and most effective forms of seizure control medication.

I loved a person a lot and we lived for 3 years. She find someone and I cannot live without her. This happened for second time. I could not concentrate on studies. My age was 22. I took so many sleeping pills but of no use. I went near to death but then I stopped. I do gym, yoga and meditation. My love cannot be erased and I cannot love new one. Only way is to permanently stop thinking. Is there any treatment for that so that my brain removes all prints of my love.

Hi Lybrate user, I understand your problem and it is callled as adjustment disorder .We are humans and we are bound to care for other human beings but some times we lose our identity in this process. You might have taken various sleeping pills but they are not the solution, what you need is a trained psychiatrist to remove your cognitive distortions (your thoughts troubling you because of your break up) and provide you CBT. The other medications like SSRIs may also help for some time. But do remember things are transient, our health is permanent. Best of luck.
