Dear lybrate user, if appears that this lady does not have any physical ailment. The psychiatric medicines have not helped much. In such situation it is very important to understand the motive behind her behaviour. It might be" attention seeking personality disorder" in which the person tries very hard to seek attention from others, at any cost. There are a number of reasons why the person needs this attention so desperately. To know more about all this, take her to a counsellor. The counsellor might be able to understand her behaviour after talking to her. I think she will need counselling along with some medicines. Take her to the counsellor, who can start her therapy. You may have to consult a psychiatrist again for medicines because a counsellor cannot prescribe medicines. The counsellor and the psychiatrist will work together to help this lady. All the best.

Dear , from the given description your problem could be obsessive compulsive disorder. This could be due to your stress. Blood pressure is also related to this.

You are going through grief, which is normal after loss of a loved one. Time is the healer for the emotional and behavioral changes, however if your depression is severe enough to affect you in a significant manner, kindly consult a psychiatrist for short term antidepressant medication, depending on the complaints.

Relationships should be built by trust, if you are not able to trust your partner and are in a constant insecurity the relationship will not grow. You need to understand from where this insecurity is coming to you, you need to get yourself evaluated so that a proper understanding of your insecurity can be got and adequate advice can be given

Hello Dr. I am a 18years old I want to quite smoking what I do for leave cigarettes. I am using a kwikinic but didn't get results.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Best age to stop smoking is before 40, In fact do not start all Only by using strong will power and avoiding all situations where you feel like smoking, chewing tobacco or drinking or using drugs avoiding friends who smoke and diverting mind by reading or chewing a gum, like NICORETTE and taking a walk when you crave for a smoke can all help. You can chew Nicorette gum which is nicotine replacement. There are medicines available. Which can be prescribed if asked personally Cigarette smoking is a leading preventable cause of mortality. It kills more than 60 lakh people worldwide every year. More than 50% of regular smokers would invariably die from tobacco-related illnesses which includes heart attack, cancer or asthmatic lung diseases. Best age to stop smoking is before 40 31st May is “World No Tobacco Day” Quitting smoking before the age of 40 is associated with larger decline in premature death than stopping it at a later date. Best age therefore to stop smoking is before 40. However, stopping smoking even after the age of 50 is still associated with lower risk of death as compared to those who continue to smoke. Even in smokers aged 80 years or more, quitting smoking appears to reduce some mortality.

How I increase my memory. I forget think after sometime.

PhD (Psychology), MSc Psychology, MS
Psychologist,
Dear, 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 provides 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 was 75 kg before 2 years. After that I slightly kind of became a stress eater. That means from a certain point in my life till now, eating different kinds of tasty oily food only gives me happiness. If I become sad also I eat so much and happy also I eat too much. Usually breakfast I will skip, lunch I will eat very less and night I eat so much of food. As a result I am now 100 kg. I want to reduce. I'm 175 cm height. Please help me doctors!

Dealing with stress by eating is a common occurrence. 'Comfort food' tends to make you feel better because it is usually something delicious, fried or sweet, and loaded with calories. It is also seen that people with anxiety and depression tend to resort to comfort eating. The problem is that being overweight or obese puts you at a high risk for heart disease and diabetes. I suggest you talk to a psychiatrist to look for any depression or anxiety. If that is the underlying cause, medication and counseling will help you. Other than that you need to consult an experienced nutritionist who will help you plan a diet which suits your lifestyle. Don't go for any fad diets or plans which are in vogue; not all of them are suitable for everyone to implement. You will need to incorporate exercise along with dietary modification and lifestyle change. The best results are seen with a combination of diet and exercise. Before starting any form of exercise, consult a doctor and get a check up done. Do not opt for very strenuous exercise immediately as you might injure yourself or harm yourself. Keep in mind this is a long road, with lot of obstacles, but with motivation and hard work you will be able to achieve your goals. Wish you the best.

My father is addicted to alcohol, what can I do for him to get rid from alcoholic ness of my father.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
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 himself because he has become addicted to alcohol and there is so much to do. Under such circumstances it is best that you admit him into a de-addiction center and let him stay there for at least 6 months and after that he 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. he will have a serious reaction, if he consumes even a small quantity of alcohol or alcohol based substances. It has to be carefully monitored to see that he not only consumes the medication but is also avoiding alcohol. Ultimately, it is his will power and the support that he receives from the medical fraternity and his close and dear ones. He 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 him on several measures and precautions he will need to take to stay with his resolve. Even after the rehabilitation he 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. He cannot be treated in isolation because the family has gotten used to his drinking and have made some unhealthy adaptations to somehow cope. The children will also have to attend meetings to work out their issues because of the father?s habit. In fact, they are all suffering from the Adult Children Of Alcoholics Syndrome (ACOAs), which in effect means that they are genetically predisposed to alcoholism or can have cross addiction problems, and that they will have similar traits of the abusing alcoholic but in a milder form. There are special support groups for them all over the world. Should they touch or indulge in alcohol or any addictive substances or behaviors, they could also become full-fledged addicts themselves. Make a serious plan with whoever else?s support he can get and act on it fast. If he is not cooperative, there are some centers that will come and pick him up, after he is completely drunk, and admit his by force. This will however, require the wife and family?s consent.

Hi sir, I am a 25 year old man and in a 2years relationship with a girl of about 30 year of age and i'm planning to get married with her. She has told me that she had few relationships but not the serious ones and also she had been engaged but that did not worked for her. She says she has not been into sexual activities ever and she is virgin. Few time while romancing and in excitement I have accidentally inserted my part into her private part. But I could not feel that hardness neither she bleeds which is really worrying for me. Her chest is very hanging. When I asked her she says she did not bleed as my part was not completely and entirely in her and that is why she did not bleed but I could see me almost in her private part. And that she has been in sports in her early days that can be the reason why her chests are hanging. And also may be the reason if she has lost her hymen and she do not bleed. What all she says is true or she is hiding something from me. Please advise.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Where the age difference is concerned, you two are not compatible. But if you still insist, you will have to make a lot of effort in the adjustability factor to cope with things that may crop up. Now regarding the problems you have already encountered her explanation is quite plausible. If your erection was not hard enough, penetration could not have been firm enough to rupture the hymen. If she was into active games and sports, many girls do break their hymen during vigorous activity. In that case she is likely to know about it. Anyway I fail to understand why her virginity matters to you! are you suggesting that you will not marry her, if she is not a virgin? that would be a sad reflection of who you are. If you are concerned that she is not being honest with you that must matter a lot for sure. Sagging breasts are not due to exercise but may be due to poor bra support and also because some women are made like that. But the suspicion that has to be considered is why is she willing for you to have intercourse with her, when she had not allowed the others? also you must get more details of why the engagement broke up, and verify the facts. Finally, love and the facts must match up to get into marriage. It is difficult for me to determine if she is telling you the complete truth or if she is he lying. Sometimes from the fear of losing you she may feel like suppressing some facts, which will appear as lies and that could ruin the situation. Perhaps you may give her some permission, without the threat of reprisals, to speak the truth. You are much younger than her and the fear of losing you is genuine. However, both of you must never compromise the truth. If however, she knows that you cannot handle the truth, then she will not reveal much. In that case you will have to change to help her stick to the truth. Whatever happens, keep communication open and let the truth prevail, always.

Hello, Dr, I am 45, male now a days I find it's difficult remember the things, even I its in front me. Thank you.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
7 Ways to Remember Anything Research-based strategies to boost your memory and keep it strong 7 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.

**hello lybrate-user, first of all I would like the appreciate your thought that you want to do some thing to avoid laptop and mobile. **thus, what I mean that you have already taken the first step by deciding that you want to do something, so that you can have a balanced life between laptop - mobile one one side and your priorities like studies on the other side. ** atleat the level of awareness that you have will take you long way. ** firstly, you don't have to completely avoid them. But rather divide your time according to your priorities. If your priority is studies then make a timetable as to how and when and how much time will you give to your studies. Then in breaks you can still operate on mobile and laptop. ** try not to completely be off them as then the craving will be more. ** see that you don't starve your self from studies and other activities as well. ** think of physical activities (swimming, racket games, cycling gym etc,) that you can do so that you r fit at the same time. ** if you want, you can learn to play any musicical instrument, as it's a great way to concentrate and focus in your life. ** all the best for your new improvised lifestyle.
