I am 20 year old, I'm feeling difficult in speaking I stutter a lot, problem is from childhood, I feel more stuttering in public Please Help me to over come from this problem talk properly.

Stammering can be made lesser only and only by Speech therapy. So you should take the help of a speech therapist. Also, I'd suggest you to visit a Psychologist as confidence plays a great role in dealing with this problem. I'd suggest you to speak very slowly, word by word. People may make fun of this but believe me, slowly you'll get better at it. Hope your query is answered. Feel free to ask if you have any doubts. Wishing you good health.

The word depressed is a common everyday word. People might say" i'm depressed" when in fact they mean" i'm fed up because i've had a row, or failed an exam, or lost my job" etc. These ups and downs of life are common and normal. Most people recover quite quickly. With true depression, you have a low mood and other symptoms each day for at least two weeks The common symptoms are (few might be present in a person with depression) Feelings of sadness, tearfulness, emptiness or hopelessness Angry outbursts, irritability or frustration, even over small matters Loss of interest or pleasure in most or all normal activities, such as sex, hobbies or sports Sleep disturbances, including insomnia or sleeping too much Tiredness and lack of energy, so even small tasks take extra effort Changes in appetite — often reduced appetite and weight loss, but increased cravings for food and weight gain in some people Anxiety, agitation or restlessness Slowed thinking, speaking or body movements Feelings of worthlessness or guilt, fixating on past failures or blaming yourself for things that aren't your responsibility Trouble thinking, concentrating, making decisions and remembering things Frequent or recurrent thoughts of death, suicidal thoughts, suicide attempts or suicide Unexplained physical problems, such as back pain or headaches consult a psychiatrist and get evaluated.

Hi lybrate-user. Anxiety is an emotion characterized by an unpleasant state of inner turmoil, often accompanied by nervous behavior. It’s a state of mind where you want to just run and keep on running. The ‘to’ and ‘from’ about the running remains unknown. It is difficult to cope with anxiety because of it’s physical non-existence. But there are a few things which I do, in order to cope with it. I clean. Yes, I clean up my desk, my almirah, my bedroom and sometimes the entire house depending upon the level of anxiety. I drink water. I don’t know how it helps but it slightly lowers my anxiety levels, somehow. I curse. A lot. Oh, what a relief! Feeling better already. I talk to my mother. It was unsusual for her to know that I get anxiety attacks. She cannot be blamed because she comes from a generation where she was told that all of this is normal. But now she understands and helps me when I get anxiety attacks. When I am at home, I just lie next to her and she strokes my head and it works like magic. Literally, magic. She even talked me into seeing a therapist or anything that would help me and I could not love her more. I ask myself the magic question “So what? (Toh kya?). It works whenever I stress about trivial things. It leads me to the next magic question “What’s the worst that could happen?” And most of the times the answers leave me in a more relaxed state, ironically; because 99.9% of the time the things you worry about won’t even happen. And finally, one of my secret therapy. I dance to cheap bollywood/bhojpuri/punjabi/haryanvi songs. Never underestimate the power of these songs. I lock my doors and just go on like a maniac.*Teri ankhya ka yo kajal*(This kohl of your eyes. Wait, did someone say anxiety? P.S. Anxiety should be taken seriously and should be dealt with care. And, never ever say ‘Don’t be anxious’ to a person who is anxious *Oh, right! ‘Don’t be anxious’ why didn't I think of that? Every person has anxious moments, but when fear is gained, this leads to an unhealthy situation. Therefore, here are ten tips to reduce your fear, so you're less afraid to say yes to life. Sleep enough An equipped mind is more stable and can carry more than a tired mind. Your brains and hormones are more balanced with a portion of good night's sleep. Do you have trouble sleeping? Then do relaxation exercises and take a bit of the mineral magnesium, and you will soon sleep. Eat healthy A healthy body that is well fed will calm the brain and reduce fears. Choose for little sugar, alcohol and chocolate. Focus more on healthy fats and proteins, as they stabilize the hormonal system. Foods rich in Tryptophan soothe the nervous system, so eat plenty of cheese, nuts, poultry, salmon, egg, bananas and potatoes. Good multivitamin supplements can add shortages and special soothing supplements like melatonin, SAM-e, 5HTP, camomile, Ginkgo Biloba, Hop, Ginseng and St. John's wort can help keep the fears in check. Learn to breathe well By breathing peacefully, you tell the body and the heart that the situation is good and under control. Quiet breathing gives your body enough oxygen, which reduces panic attacks. Try to breathe deeply from the stomach so that the lungs are fully filled with oxygen. Let you lead by curiosity One of the strongest antidote to fear is curiosity. When you are curious, interest is gaining attention. Your attention can only be in one place at the same time, so feed your curiosity instead of your fears. Accept your emotions Every human being has feelings, including anxiety. What kind of feeling comes to you, let it be. When you go with it, it gets bigger and bigger and you're likely to get caught up. See emotions like clouds in the sky: they come and go.

My son is suffering from Autism, can it be cured and what therapies will be needed and where are the best therapies centres.

PDDM, MHA, MBBS
General Physician, Nashik
There is no cure for autism; however, with appropriate treatment and education, many children with autism spectrum disorders can learn and develop. Early intervention often can reduce challenges associated with autism, lessen disruptive behavior, and provide some degree of independence.

Hi I am a 25. Year old unmarried girl. I have been living away from my family from past 7 years now due to study, job etc. Currently I am working. Its been few months that I had an argument with my father regarding marriage stuff as I dnt feel like marrying anyone. Now I have been feeling a lot disconnected to everyone, my family, my frnds, I enjoy almost nothing. I feel blank about everyone. I barely talk to my family members. I barely enjoy any sort of moment. But I was not this kind of girl until that argument occurred. I used to enjoy alot but cannot figure it out what is wrong with me now. I also have a bf whom I am ok marrying with but now I guess I have ideal feeling for everyone. At one time I want to, the other time I am confused. I have few frnds in office with whom I am a completely different person. I njoy, I laugh, I joke but as soon as I return home everything changes. Though these people does not count much for me I stay happy wid them but not with the persons closely known to me. I am so annoyed with the way my life has become. I can not figure it out. Please let me know if this is any kind of depression or something. Thanks.

Hi. It could be a lot of things. May be due to stress in family your outlook towards rest of your friends and social circle has changed. It could be sub conciously there are lot of things on your mind and you do not have outlet for that thats making you feel sad and you are not aware of the reason. May be due to lot of things on your mind you are not able to share with any one. It could be that there is no happy life scenario for you right now. It could be leading to mild depression, but you need to talk it out. To understand it better, consult a psychologist online or in person. All the best. Don't worry it will be fine.

My grand mother passed away last week. I cannot sleep at night since then. I am scared of going to the washroom im scared of staying alone at home. I want to get rid of all this.

What you are experiencing is very common after a profound loss of life. The feeling that your gm is still present around will last for a few days or weeks. You will get over this feeling. No there are no souls or ghosts. It shows that you loved her very much and are missing her.

Dear Doctor, I'm feeling fear psychosis for everything. I fear to take bath, I fear to drive my car, I'm not able to take lunch/dinner alone because of unknown fear. I am not able to sleep because of unknown fear having no reason, thinking that what would happen if I sleep. I feel a strange kind of fear if I stay alone. Sweating comes out abnormally. Sometimes, I feel very depressed. I'm not able to concentrate anything. Moreover, I do something, need immediate result. I loose my control to wait for the result. About 1.5 years back I was having acute pain all over my lower limbs. I had undergone with various tests & medicines but nothing cured me. Alternatively, having no alternative, gone for electro-homeopathic treatment. I was cured. I'm a diabetic & taking glypride-1000 mg regularly after dinner. Please suggest to overcome from this phobia.

Hello Mr. Lybrate-user no as you asked about your problems related to your nervous system and unknown fearing are relatively linked with your nervous system and anxiety, depression. I would like to advise you to follow regular daily routines of getting all dietary measures and daily behaviours as well as exercise and yoga. You may learn yoga from any yoga teacher and practice daily. However you may engage yourself in any work. You may practice meditation twice daily then you feel better result.
