I like a girl working at my workplace. But I came to know that she has already a boyfriend. But still I can't change my feelings. I try everything to make her happy. But she wants me to stay away from her. Once I left talking to her or looking towards her. But it was hard time for me yet I was doing it for her sake. And now she came again to me asking an another help in her personal life. I did what I could and was happy again. But after her problem got over. She again started ignoring me. Whenever I swear not to think about her. She presents to me with a new problem seeking for help. When I help her, it gives me an incredible pleasure but when she ignores me. I be depressed. Is there something wrong with me? Should I have any clinical cure? Please help me.

Hi lybrate-user, sure she is using you and has no real feeling for you. Sometimes people take advantage of our kindness. Don't think about her in terms of potential partner take her as a colleague that's it. Don't fulfill her demands or favors that she seeks from you, otherwise it will lead to you emotional exploitation. Why go after someone who is already committed when there are so many single girls out there. Consult for therapy, you need some guidance with this issue. All the best.

I can't remember questions more than 2 minutes. I am 16 years old male. My ssc exm is coming so plssssssss. Gv me reading tips .nd how cn I increase my memory .nd remember nd concentration power.

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.

I am 45 years old male and last 20 years take alcohol know last five year I am serious alcoholic (using about 400 ml alcohol per day) and after drink I forget every thing like how I come back home my doctor directed me to take one tablet pregabalin 50, Pexep CR (Paroxetine) 12.5.

Homeopath,
Dear lybrate user, you may need a bit of willpower to stop your habit of drinking alcohol permanently. You could easily abstain yourself from alcohol during the initial 2-3 days. But after few days of abstaining from alcohol you will feel a strong craving to drink just one peg of alcohol whenever you face any tense situation. Here lies your real test. You cannot satisfy yourself with just only one peg. You will need a lot of willpower to resist that craving & face any tense situation without the help of alcohol. Moreover you may feel a slight shivering of your hands after abstaining from alcohol for more than 15 days. However, you can take homoeopathic mother tincture acid sulph q, 30 drops, thrice daily, after meals, in a cup of water. This medicine will help to reduce your craving for alcohol.

Hi, I was diagnosed with depression and anxiety recently by a psychologist. He prescribes me only medications and no therapy but I think they are dangerous and have many side effects. Should I discontinue treatment?

MD - Psychiatry, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Hyderabad
First of all psychiatrists can only prescribe medications, psychologist cannot as they are not doctors. If psychiatrist has prescribed you medication it means that your condition needs it. You have not mentioned what medicines have been prescribed but most of the medicines to treat anxiety or depression are pretty safe and not many side effects. So you can safely take them.

Dear Doctor, My 28 years old unmarried daughter feels that her parents do not have emotional bonding with her so she wants to stay away from them and doesn't want to share her feelings. She has an online affair with a guy with whom she keeps on chatting. As a parent what should we say to make her emotionally secure from our side, should we let her stay alone somewhere else?

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. Your daughter is grown up and upto some extent matured. If she feels that parents are emotionally nonmsupportive, then, there has to be a reason. Don't get agitated and be patient. Talk to your daughter regarding this. No need to let her stay alone. If you desire so,

Seeing your parents fighting would have left you insecure and fearful. Your trust in people and relationships has not developed because you haven't seen your parents modelling it for you. Yet it's not the end of the world. You can stay in your city and still work towards building your life and relationships. Try to remember those times when you did have a friend or cared for someone even briefly. Even if there were very few people who you cared for but still you did it. Inside the lonely person there is a gentle and beautiful person who wants to love and be loved. Nurture that part of you and let it grow. You will start living your life again. Change your counsellor if the other one didn't help you.

Dear user. Sleep talking, or somniloquy, is the act of speaking during sleep. It's a type of parasomnia -- an abnormal behavior that takes place during sleep. It's a very common occurrence and is not usually considered a medical problem. Ignore it for better results. Take care.

My memory is draining day by day and I want to improve it. After reading book I forget what I read . Can anybody give me any suggestion .

BHMS
Homeopath, Faridabad
Hello, there are few food items which helps you in boosting up your memory power, increases focus & concentration, so try to take more of these: 1. Choline: good sources of choline include liver, milk, eggs and peanuts. 2. Vitamin b: b vitamins are not synthesized in the body, and thus need to be obtained from food. B-complex vitamins are water-soluble vitamins, which means that they are not stored within the body. In consequence, the b vitamins need ongoing replenishment. Vitamin b1 (thiamine) rich sources include unrefined grain products, ready-to-eat cereals, meat (especially pork), dairy products, peanuts, legumes, fruits and eggs. Foods that contain high concentrations of vitamin b3 (niacin) in the free form include beans and organ meat, as well as enriched grain and cereal products. While niacin is present in corn and other grains, the bioavailability of the nutrient is much less than it is in protein-rich sources. The role of vitamin b9 (folic acid) during pregnancy is vital to normal development of the nervous system in the fetus. Good sources of folate include liver, ready-to-eat breakfast cereals, beans, asparagus, spinach, broccoli, and orange juice. Animal protein products are a good source of vitamin b12 (cobalamine), particularly organ meats such as kidney or liver. Other good sources are fish, eggs, and dairy products. 3. Vitamin a: the foods highest in vitamin a are any pigmented fruits and vegetables and leafy green vegetables. 4. Zinc: zinc is a very important part of the brain as well; many regions of the brain, such as the cerebellum, and hippocampus have neurons that contain this nutrient. Zinc is needed to maintain normal vitamin a levels in blood plasma. Sources of zinc are meats, certain seafood, whole grains, baked beans, oatmeal, milk (low-fat), cashewnut, almonds, kidney-beans, cheese, peas, spinach, sesame seeds, pumpkin seeds, flaxseeds. Medication: take homoeopathic medicine for increasing memory - anacardium 200/ once daily.

Since my friend get ill she goes in depressions so that I am stressed. Please help me.

Since my friend get ill she goes in depressions so that I am stressed. Please help me.
It seems that due to her illness feeling low. At this age sometimes even a small thing could create deeper trauma and emotional turmoil. I would suggest to take her to a counselor or a psychologist. She needs to talk to someone who can understand her situation and reassure her about her recovery. You can also suggest her to try following things. If you both can team up and so these things together it will be easier for her. And of course if will benefit you as well as you are also feeling quite a lot of stress yourself. One or other kind of stress has become part of our life these days. Due to stress we start having more negative thoughts and emotions. The good news is that our mind could be wired to switch back to positive things and resilience building. When things does not happen as we wish or people do not behave as we expect that is when out of disappointment, frustration, loneliness, anger, sadness. Etc we react and our mind starts thinking negative thoughts. Changing this pattern of responding to stressful situation requires both persistence and patience. Also you will only be able to work on this out of love and kindness towards you. Strong motivation will go a long way. Writing a statement about how would you want to respond in a similar situation and how will your life and your happiness will change if you do learn to manage your stress and how to respond to it. Once that is clear. Try following things to learn relaxation response which leads to better coping mechanism on a daily basis. To begin with doing guided progressive muscular relaxation before sleeping will help you relax. You could google and download an audio file. I would also suggest you to take a multiple small break to take 3 nice and deep breath while keeping your eyes closed. You could do this while sitting or standing or while even walking or climbing stairs (keep your eyes open in that case). When you take a nice and deep break there is actual physiological change in your body. This will help you to activate parasympathetic nervous system which promotes relaxation and helps you calm down and think more clearly. This will also actually improve your performance in your work. Along with this exercise is one of the best way to relive stress and stay fit. Engage in any kind of physical activity at least 4 times a week. This also helps in stress reduction. Along with this some relaxation exercises as well as engaging in joyful activities such as music, singing, dancing, reading, being in nature, gardening, talking with friends or anything which you enjoy will help reducing stress and rejuvenation of your mind and body. Have good routine for sleep and eating. Lot of research has now proven that sugar is very harmful for our health. Reduce sugar and refined white floor in your diet as much as you could. Along with this also increase consumption of raw vegetables in the form of salad in both the meals of your day.

Hi Ms. Lybrate-user, you are going through a tough time indeed. However, first and foremost you need to de-stress yourself and relax so that you can think well and act prudently on the steps next. I would advise you to remain mentally strong as you already are, believe in yourself, and have faith and hope that there always is light at the end of the tunnel, however dark the tunnel may appear to be at present. Practicing mindfulness meditation can also help you relax, de-stress and keep you focused even during these tough times. You may have a flight of disturbing thoughts initially but slowly you will get to do better and be able to control your mind/ thought pattern well. A trip to some hill station or some scenic natural place can possibly help you relax, rejuvenate, think clearly and have a fresh perspective. Simultaneously, do keep up your dietary habits, lifestyle & hobbies and try enjoying every moment of your life irrespective. Its indeed important that you stay psycho-socially active too. Should you still have issues keeping calm and focus, you can always seek help from a psychologist who can clinically evaluate and put you on anxiolytics suitably, should it require so. Hope this helps. Do take care, and all the very best.
