Sir/mam, I am doing vocal practice from last 4 months (approx). From last 3 4 days am practicing 3 times a day which I never use to do My vocal become hoarse People suggest me that this is natural, voval is making it's position But am afraid for my vocals. I do not wanna break my practice by taking rest I reduced it (if possible) Please suggest.

Vocal practice has beneficial effect if done regularly for a specific time period & in a stable manner. Over practicing may strain your voice & lead to the subsequent ill affects. So rather than sometimes over practicing & sometimes under practicing, continue your practice daily for the same duration of time, in a calm & relaxed state of mind, enjoying your practice at the same time. Also take care of your throat & consult an ENT specialist if the hoarseness persist or continue to increase, who will also advice you regarding how to take proper care of your throat.

First of all I'd like to tell you that try to accept the change in life. Accept that past is past and you have to move on. You have to convert the pain, stress and frustration into positive things. Try to find motivation to move up in all what happened to you after break up. It's common to have aggravated depressive and anxiety symptoms after break up but in most individuals these don't last more than 6 months. These symptoms of adjustment disorder usually remit by own. The poor memory, stress and anger are due to lack of focus. To come out of these symptoms stay outdoors as much as possible. This will help you to distract yourself from past. Try to find a new hobby and if possible learn it or complete it. Reading, completing a new course, gym etc are options. Try to find interests in these things. If symptoms are severe and persist then visit a psychiatrist for help. Medicines like SSRIs can help to reduce the depression. Fluoxetine or Escitalopram can be used for short time and will help you to come out of depression. These are safe medicines and can be used without any worries.

I am very scared of driving on mountains/hills and also scared if someone else is driving. Also I am scared of flying. Though I know it's irrational and a phobia that I have but I am unable to travel to places I want to due to this fear. Is there any medication I can take for permanent resolution?

Hi I will prescribe some harmless but effective flower remedy available in homoeopathy shops. Try to buy original medicines. Mix 3 drops of mimulus + 3 drops of rock rose + 3 drops of aspen. Mix these with 100 ml water and drink it every morning and night.(same dose) on empty stomach.

Dear Lybrate user. I can understand. Loosing someone dear and near causes grief. Grief leads to disappointment. Grief related disappointment manifests symptoms as in the case of depression. But disappointment symptoms are far shorter in duration than depression. These symptoms will vanish in some days or weeks. Don’t worry. Physical exercise, outdoor games, entertainment, hobbies etc could help you divert your attention. I suggest cognitive therapy. Take care.

I did a lot of test. Like echo cardiogram/ chest xray / ct scan on brain and sinus/ CBC blood test/ sugar test/ liver function test/ kidney function test/ thyroid function test/crp test/ cardiac profile/ dimer test./ ECG test. All my test can back normal. But I still feel sick something my head feel heavy. My body feel tired and lazy. Sometime I feel sleep in the day . My doctor told me maybe anxiety is the cause. Because my doc tor said all my test is good. Seeing all my test is good I do not need to worry if I am sick with a disease or something right.

Dear lybrate user. The way you have carried out a number of tests for yourself, definitely suggest your anxiety, worry and doubt about yourself being healthy. If you are preoccupied with the idea of being diseased and get various tests done time to time even when assured to be healthy by doctor, you may be suffering from hypochondriasis which can be treated with medications. Anyways this is the side of story I have perceived from the information made available by you. For appropriate management you need to get in touch so that complete history and symptoms of your condition can be understood and treatment will be based on the same.

Dear lybrate user, please consult a counsellor or psychologist at the earliest. You need psychological assessment for your depression and depending on the result they may refer you to a doctor and/or start therapeutic work. Once you get rid of negative thoughts, you will feel better and will start enjoying life.

After 7 years of long relationship, my girlfriend is avoiding me and telling me to forget her and don't be too serious for her but for me it's very hard to get over her as I deeply love her and telling and she tells me now that I am not perfect for her and all these years she didn't loved me. I don't know how to get rid of this situation, how to control myself thinking about her and hurting myself that she would never come back.

First of all, you should know that a relationship can only last if an only if it is mutual. I think she is the best medium in your life to let you learn that you did not understand her properly. For the past 7 years she was with someone else too, or she recently got someone else. In both cases, as far as your future is concerned, you should be thankful to her that she got rid of you. Imagine what would happen if your relationship turned serious and you were married and had 2 kids and then she comes up with the same explanation that she gives you now? A disaster!! Try to get the best of the worst!! There are many lovely people in this world. You will definitely get someone. Start looking and moving further in your life. You can not carry on with some one who does not want to be with you. It is hard, but everything changes when you give yourself a strong message. You will attract someone who is good for you. You need to distract yourself in to creative activities and channelize your energy into the things that you like to do. Make physical activity a regular and essential part of your life. Many studies show that people who exercise regularly benefit with a positive boost in mood and lower rates of depression by producing happy hormones called endorphins. Improved sleep & self-esteem is a benefit of regular physical activity. Good Luck!
