What to do in case of risperdal disease so as to improve efficiency of an individual.
It is not clear what you mean. Risperdal is not a disease and is a medicine given for mental illness. Please ask clearly.

Hello I am 26 year ,male, unmarried,non smoker and non alcoholic I have problem of getting blank during exam. My mind is getting slow. Please help me. This is serious problem for me. Thankyou.

I don't know for how long you have ben having this problem, and if you are still studying I must assume you are doing some professional course. So, if it is of recent origin, you can easily locate the why this problem began: it will have to do with some fear related event. If it is or past origins, then you should meet with a counselor and sort out the unresolved childhood experience, again having a lot to do with fear. This fear, for some unknown reason, is causing you to react in panic. It is apparently so frightful that you shut down your senses and go blank. It may not at all be of any serious consequence but you are reacting like it is one. A good education on emotions and how to deal with them will go a long way to come out of this adaptation. In the meantime, good aerobic exercise, proper sleep, healthy diet, and stress-free lifestyle will help you deal with these developments with strength.

I am from a decent family with good culture. I am in relation with a girl of 17 years from past 3 years. She used to cheat me and flirt with guys at the starting of relationship. I changed her and explained that it is not good. The problem is that whenever I see her with any guy talking or texting. I get the same feeling that she has started her old habit of flirting. I am so passive. I can't bear it. From this I can't concentrate on studies! feeling lonely always. She just want to enjoy her life with other guys more. She just escapes giving reasons that her mom is permitting and she is forcing to go with others. So please help me how to control myself and being sad and unsatisfying always. I just don't wanna be passive!

It is good that she is social with other boys but not that she is flirting with them. If you think she has genuinely changed then you must learn to trust her. You see you cannot forever keep a tab on your girl and live a life of suspicion and insecurity. On the other hand there is a saying that a ‘leopard cannot change its spots’. If you want this girl, you must accept her the way she is, otherwise give her up. If you have to control and keep an eye on her, life can become very miserable, like it has already become for you. It may be in her culture or her mother’s culture to be playful and mix around freely but quite innocently. If you think that that could be risky behavior and that some boys will mistake her for a fast girl, then you could caution her and if she does not heed your advice, then she is going to be difficult to reason with. If you are brave or free enough why don’t you talk to her mother and find out the scenario and her take on the matter. She may give you an explanation that you or I may not understand or know about! The other problem is that there may be insecurities in you that may be the problem and as soon as you work that out, it could be a different scene altogether. Whatever happens you must be able to trust the girl; and if that is not there because of her or you, the relationship is not meant to be, period.

7 things to increase the intimacy with your partner

M.D. homoeopathy, BHMS
Homeopath, Noida
7 things to increase the intimacy with your partner
The initimacy shared by two people during love making has always strengthen their relationship, but to take the heat of the moment to the next level and for more gratifying experience here are some 7 things which would work MAGIC on your relationship and a better sex experience:
1. Stare Each other down : Next time things are heating up between you and your partner, take a moment to pause and look deeply into each other's eyes. Just take a minute before you start fooling around to face each other (clothing optional) and place your right hand over your partner's heart as he places his own hand over your heart. Stare into each other's eyes, and explain to your guy that you want to synchronize your breathing for 10 deep breaths. It might sound cheesy, but it works. "Getting grounded and fully present together makes for a much more powerful, positive sex experience and allows you to really nurture the relationship,"
2. Share sexy fantasies and desires : Too often, he says, we start fooling around and rush straight into the main event. But starting by sharing your private fantasies—even if doing so makes you blush—can open up a whole new dimension to your relationship.Opening up to each other will increase intimacy—and assuming your partner is part of your fantasy, hearing an idealized picture of the two of you will increase both of your senses of self-esteem. "Self-esteem is directly tied to sexiness," so your feelings about each other, not to mention your performance in the bedroom, will grow stronger as a result.
3.Extend foreplay: Don't be afraid to slow things down and spend more time massaging each other, making out, and exploring each other's bodies. "Desire mounts very quickly, so drawing out the process for 20 minutes or even half an hour will build tons of sexual tension," . After a long time together, sex can become an automatic, scripted process, but if you're able to put in extra effort and attention leading up to it, sex will be a more connected experience. "This connection is the difference between sex and love-making," couples with better, healthier sex lives have been shown to have better, healthier relationships.
4. Cuddle :It's not just for after sex! the more time you spend cuddling before things get hot and heavy, the more your relationship will benefit in the long run. That's because cuddling releases oxytocin, and that increases feelings of intimacy with your partner. "Spooning or even just laying comfortably side-by-side, without getting too focused on any one erogenous zone, will make for a more powerful sexual experience and aftermath,"
5. Think happy thoughts: If soul-gazing isn't really your thing, close your eyes, breathe deeply, and think about a time "when everything was right in the world between you and your partner—when you felt unconditional love, total peace, openness, and joy." Since your brain can't distinguish between reality and a vivid imagination, if you picture yourself actually in the memory, you'll feel the same bubbling emotion and open-heartedness as when you experienced the moment the first time around. "Your main sex organ is between your ears," so these positive feelings will carry over to the way you feel about your partner during sex and leave you more content with each other afterward.
6. Meditate yourself : Even simpler than these joint techniques is a quick solo meditation sesh. Take 30 seconds just to "quiet your mind, take yourself out of your day, and place yourself in the present moment," "Women are multi-taskers by nature, constantly running through our to-do lists in our heads. But placing yourself in your body and in the room will put you in an empathetic, generous state of mind." It can also improve the depth of connection between you and your partner during sex, making for better action and, ultimately, a deeper connection in your relationship.
7. Check out photos of yourself : You probably (hopefully) already have photos of each other around your room. Right before sex, take a moment to look around your room and appreciate these reminders of your relationship's best moments. "Celebrating your relationship in this way will make sex into more of a celebratory act," . It can also help cement your positive feelings about each other and the relationship.

You are just 21 and life has only begun and you already want to end it! You sound more and more like someone with a serious rejection issue. You try to do the best for other people so that they don’t reject you but yet they do. This means that you need to look at what you are doing to make others reject you. It has become so bad that I feel you are now rejecting yourself in contemplating suicide! You may be angry about something and because you think that it cannot be expressed, you are turning it inwards. The identity crisis is typical of someone who is dependent on others for acknowledgement and tends to identify with other personalities. You probably suffer from low self-esteem. But far worse than that is my fear that you have this rejection issue, which is compounded with abandonment issues and separation anxiety. The fear of acceptance may then trigger a performance-oriented individual who will depend entirely on other people’s opinion and assessment of himself. This will make you even more vulnerable and susceptible to rejection, and you may hurt very badly and easily at the slightest sign of rejection. There is a way about this, but meet with a counselor first and see what can be worked out to learn to accept yourself first. If you did this you will naturally perform well and will not depend on others, entirely, for their acceptance. If you know of any reason to believe that this rejection is true from your childhood it would help tremendously. Talk to your parents and find out what they remember or you could take them with you to meet with the counselor. If you learn to accept yourself first then the identity may be formed, but the best way to develop an identity is to know your emotions and how to express them. Your feelings are a very good indicator of who you are. A counselor will help you do this well.

Dear, I don't see the risk of amnesia in you at this age. Have you met with any accident or trauma? are you diagnosed with anxiety disorder or depression? busy and anxious people do forget many things, that does not mean they have amnesia. Therefore, usually, busy people keep everything in writing or appoint a personal assistant to help them out. Stress is also another factor behind forgetting. People also forget things which they feel unimportant. Therefore, I think, you do not have anything to worry. Still, if you insist, I can run a series of memory related tests to assess your memory. First screening test will be through mobile. Let me know if you are willing. Take care.

Dear lybrate-user, welcome to lybrate. Memory and mind power depends mainly on three aspects. Understanding, storage and recollection. To understand what you are studying, you must be able to be attentive or concentrate. Concentration is possible when you are interested in that subject. Creative way of learning can help you concentrate and understand easily. When you are able to understand and concentrate, it is stored within your brain. If you read more and more it will be store in long term memory. Third part is retrieval. Whenever you want to retrive what you learned and stored, your brain gets the request, searches the database and retrieves the information for you. The retrieval may prove to be difficult if you are anxious, stressed, worried or tired physically or mentally. Retrieval is more easy when you are relaxed and healthy. Brain needs nutrients to keep itself sharp. Fruits, vegetables and dry fruits provide much needed nutrients for your brain. Include at least one fruit in your daily diet. Physical exercises, entertainment, hobbies, relaxation, memory games like sudoku etc help keep your memory sharp and active. Take care.

HI. The best decision is move away from this negativity and people who value money more than your worth. its good that you got rid of her and you should not ever think of going back to the same person. You are very very young. A lot of girls will enter your life and you will form meaningful relations. Tell your friends strictly not to mention about her. The best way to make someone realize is MOVE ON. Focus on building a career and have meaningful relation and friendship. Soon it will be fine.

Dear, from the description, it seems that you have anxiety disorder and it could be social anxiety disorder. You were worried when you gave blood and you carried the whole worry with you for some period instead of forgetting it. Later it manifested as anxiety. Anxiety can be treated with the help of awareness, psychotherapy, life style changes and exercise. I think two or three counseling sessions and psycho therapy techniques should solve your problem. Let me know if you are willing to undergo counseling sessions and tailor made psycho therapy through mobile. Take care.

Dear Lybrate user. You said sometimes you get stupid kind of thoughts. These stupid kind of thoughts are part of life and everyone gets such stupid kind of thoughts. You can't stop them completely. When stupid and unforeseen things happen in your life, stupid thoughts do come. You cannot control what happens where. Instead we learn how to overcome those stupid thoughts. Cognitive therapy should help you. Take care.

This is unfortunately very true in many homes. But you must remember that you are you: absolutely unique and can be compared to others in terms of progress and failure too. That does not mean you have to imitate the other persons to become good. Give them a deaf ear or talk to a counselor about your problems. Perhaps the counselor will want to speak to your parents and help you deal with it. Running away will solve nothing.

She (28 year) is over sensitive and short tempered ,irritating. At the same time too much concerned about cleaning washing hand for longer time than usual when she is tensed but other thing she washes normally. Whenever I talk in high speech she react very rudely and sometime shout loudly and aggressively abused if her anger outburst. She takes pressure unnecessarily which is not concerned to her, and try to interfere everyone's thought according to her if it is not so, she annoyed with herself and start washing hand and she does it very cautiously. If she is disturbed again and again she will do. I consulted neuro psychiatrist and he prescribed medicine but she refused to take it due to fear that it may side effect or worsen the condition but doctor advised to continue. Then she promised to correct it by herself without medicine and now she is in better position but her anger outburst if something doesn't happen as per her wish. Now she is not able to control her anger and emotion even though she tried to do. And after sometime she relaxed and apologies for misbehaving and regret it. If I leave her to do those activity she becomes furious. If I try to stop hand washing she starts shouting. So what should I do, she wants to recover but without taking medicine. So old help me out to deal this situation because it is intolerable for me and making situation worsen day by day.

Fear of contamination, excess hand washing, checking, anxiety and irritability are some of the features of OCD. It is advisable to take her to a psychiatrist for proper assessment and diagnosis. They will be able to assess her properly and treat accordingly. Without taking her to a psychiatrist it is not possible to confirm the diagnosis or start any treatment. Consult a psychiatrist at the earliest. The best treatment is a combination of medication and behavioral therapy. Ask the psychiatrist for a home visit if she is refusing to go to them.

Hello lybrate user your weekness and other compalints are result of low haemoglobin level. Just start some haematinic tablet or syp daily. Also eat beet, palak, methi and khajur fruits. It help to increase hb level and as your hb become normal other complaint will reduce gradually.

Hi Doc, I have addition of chewing tobacco (rajnigandha-tulsi) from last 5 years. Now I want to leave this but not able to left it by my self. I tried so many time but not succeed. I also tried nicotex to leave this habit but not succeed. So can you please suggest any medicine by help of which I can leave this habit in less time. Thanks in advance.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Only by using strong will power and avoiding all situations where you feel like smoking, chewing tobacco or drinking or using drugs/ weed, 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.
