I feel I am always at my emotional poles. Sometimes extremely happy or excited, other times dull. I have extreme absent mindedness. Since I was a kid, I have been forgetting keys, lost 2 mobile phones, forgot to pull my zip up. I have a chronic procrastination problem always doing things at the last minute and usually missing deadlines, I am going through the final year of medical school, and I haven't been able to study properly except the last 15 days before exams since my 10th grade. I have failed twice, and the others, just pass. I have also failed in class 11. I lose my patience when I start reading my books and immediately fall asleep. I get easily distracted by ideas in my head, and forget what I was originally doing. In fact I make hand and body gestures without even knowing. I plan to do a lot of things, but cannot follow on them. Also, I get very conscious in social situations and am not able to communicate properly. Usually I regret my social actions later on.

Hi lybrate-user! First of all do not worry. You actually need some treatment and counselling, it will be cured unless otherwise you volunteer to overcome. There may be many reasons because of which you are not able to overcome this problem from childhood, if at all this was corrected at an young age, you would not have faced this now. Anyway past is past, now it is not too late. I wanted you to not do things fast anytype of work. I wanted you to do your daily routines slowly like having food, drinking water etc. Each and everything just take sometime relax and then do your work. Regarding your studies study in portion by portion, study for some time when you are not able to you can always take break relax, and then start again, I wanted you to apply the same during your exams and studies. If you are finding difficulty can seek a Psychologist or a counsellor who will guide you through to overcome this problem. Take care. Everything is possible. With regards, Psy. MSV.

Therapy along cognitive behavioural therapy will help. Start by recognising your thought processes just before and during a panic attack. Medication may have some benefit but unlikely to cure it on its own.

I was a bright student since childhood I was a topper .but since last two years even can't pass in exams. I am in class 12 right now and merely 40 days are left for board exams which will indeed decide my future my entire life. When I sit to study my mind goes somewhere else and I don't even know when I got distracted. I study for long hours but then also I forget 80% matter studied. I can't remember things .when I sit in exam hall I feel a sort of tiredness a sort of sleepiness and so I can't even manage to pass I don't know how I got in this but I wanna get rid of all this. Also I sit for long hours but I can do very meagre very little study that's not enough to pass in board exams even most dull students are far ahead of me I feel very sad and my parents do not know all this is happening with me please help.

Every moment is precious for you now, as only 40 days are left for your exam. Rather than wasting your time thinking of the consequences of the exam, utilize the remaining time to the fullest & put your maximum effort in your preparation. Take the following measures to improve your concentration & prepare well: •Make a study routine giving maximum time for studies. Also give adequate time for sleep, rest & relaxation. Between studies you have to relax also. This will help in sustaining your interest & concentration. Try to stick to your routine. At night look back how much you could follow the routine & reward yourself if the day was productive & to your satisfaction. In the form of reward you can give little extra time for relaxation next day, watch TV or spend some with internet, eat something you like, meet a friend etc. Encourage yourself daily. •Revise your lessons regularly. •Study relaxly with a calm mind & take small breaks during studies. •Group studies & group discussions are also helpful. •Do not try to memorize blindly. Try to understand your lessons. •Write down the main points & form mnemonics from them. Mnemonic devices are techniques which help to remember something. It’s a simple shortcut that helps us associate the information we want to remember with an image, a sentence, or a word. •Have a plan to manage your time of study. Make a routine for studying. Study for 30-45 minutes & then take 5-10 mins break. •Be confident of yourself & do not compare yourself with others. •If you feel stressed while studying, talk to someone, listen to some music or do something that relax you. •Create the environment in your study room similar to your exam hall. Then you will find your exam hall comfortable & familiar. •Expect exam outcomes rationally & what is within your capability. Impractical & over expectation that is beyond one’s capability brings in fear & frustration. •During these days of preparation for exam eat healthy, stay hydrated & avoid substances of abuse, as a healthy body prepares a healthy mind. •Every morning relax yourself adequately before you sit for studies; go for a walk, spend some time with nature, go for a walk, do yoga, breathing exercise or relaxation techniques. •On the day prior to exam sleep adequately. •Reach the examination hall before time so that you are relaxed & mentally prepared for the exam. Do not guess the exam outcomes just target to give your best. Think positive. Start writing with a calm mind. Be aware of the anxiety symptoms, & if you feel anxiety is building up, just concentrate on breathing in & out slowly or tighten & relax your shoulders or stretch your legs. You can also take a small break & drink some water •Do not look around; just concentrate on your paper. •Revise quickly once you finish answering. All the best for your preparation & for your exam. Give your best.

Dear lybrate user. Even one weed cigarette per day is harmful for your body. This may not affect your martial art capabilities or muscle strength immediately, but will be affecting your internal organs and overall health. Please quit weed and cigarette. Take care.

Dear Lybrate user, Welcome to Lybrate. From the given symptoms, it seems that you are suffering from stress disorder. You should consult a psychologist. Stress is simply a reaction to a stimulus that disturbs our physical or mental equilibrium. In other words, it's an omnipresent part of life. A stressful event can trigger the “fight-or-flight” response, causing hormones such as adrenaline and cortisol to surge through the body. A little bit of stress, known as “acute stress,” can be exciting—it keeps us active and alert. But long-term, or “chronic stress,” can have detrimental effects on health. You may not be able to control the stressors in your world, but you can alter your reaction to them. Physical exercise, creative activities, deep breathing, being away from the situation for sometime etc can help you tackle the stress. I need to know, what are the causes with which you are stressed? Once you know the reason, you will be able to adjust with it with some psycho therapy methods. Please let me know the details. Take care.

I am going through 10th board exams and going through a lot of stress. How to cope up with that?
DEAR Lybrate USER. This problem is due to irritation and inadequate nutrition of the brain. So follow few basic things . 1) drink only 100-150 ml of lukewarm water during meals 2) don’t drink water one hour before meals and one hour after meal 3) avoid oily, spicy, salty, junk, fast, fermented and stale foods. 4) avoid coffee and tea 5) try to sleep upto 10.30 pm 6) do anuloma viloma pranayam regularly early in the morning. A) eat 1 TSF of BLACK CUMIN SEEDS along with 1 TSF of jiggery after meals. B) take 60 ml of AUDUMBARAVLEHA along with 10 ml of honey early in the morning and at night before sleep. C) take 2 tablets of MAHALAXMIVILAS RASA along with AUDUMBARAVLEHA at night before sleep D) instill 3-4 drops of CHANDANADI TAILA in each nostril at the time of sleeping Do all these things for 15 days. It gives you good result.

General Physician,
STOP SMOKING 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/ 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.

My wife is feeling frustrated due to apathetic attitude of her Bahu(daughter in law). She expects her to take care of her but she is a neutral lady,unless asked she does not act. What to do?

It is quite natural in our country this sort of role transfer build up a conflict. You need to counsel your wife to adapt as the time changes and you can encourage your bahu to takeup the responsibility of the household and cousel her too. Hopefully acceptance is ultimate answer for such an issue.

I am 23 year old My memory power is so week. So what can I do for increasing my memory power. Please suggest me.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
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 always feel depressed due to breakup with my girlfriend so how to get rid of from this.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
It looks like you are pining for her after the break up. Have you analyzed why you two had this fallout? If it your fault, then apologize and see if she is amenable. If not you may have done something quite unforgiveable. But you say you cry every night, and you have lost so much of weight and friends that it seems you have discovered that a heterosexual relationship is very different from normal relations. It is very intense, and the very thing that makes it attractive (the opposite sex and all its nuances), can also be its nemesis. You must learn what that difference was about your past relations and this particular one and find out how to live with a love relationship. There must be love, respect, commitment, honesty, trust, and freedom in the romantic scene. If however, this is final, then remove all associations of hers: gifts, notes, letters, cards, emails, and any reminders to get her out of your system, not just the mind. Keep the good memories but don’t indulge in them. Get back to your old pals and revive those contacts. Normally when we get a girl friend, we drop all our friends and live exclusively with her. This is not a good thing to do, generally. So do get back to them and get into good social circles. They will help you get over her. Do not talk ill or malign your ex to your friends, whatever was the reason. That is unfortunately a very bad habit many of us have – we must still respect her reputation and treat her with dignity. Since this break up is so serious for you that suicidal thoughts are also plaguing you, do meet up with a counselor and talk about your feelings, openly. This is not the end of the world and she is not the only girl in life. You will find another but learn not to repeat the mistakes that led to the breakup. This time choose wisely and behave like a true gentleman.

He loves me but I feel we have differences in thoughts and should not get married. What should we do about it?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
No two people have or are expected to have the same thoughts. That is the beauty of relationships: the different perspectives add spice to life. It would be extremely boring, if you had the same thoughts. These differences though must help bring strength to your collective minds. If you are trying to control his mind, and failing in your effort, then you don?t need him, you need a robot. You must learn to appreciate the thinking to see and understand the other person?s mind. If you are getting into arguments on this front, stop it by ?agreeing to disagree. No problem then. Male and female brains differ, and that?s what attracts the opposite sexes. If these differences become points of contention, something is wrong in your concept of relationship and your expectations of each other. I can understand that sometimes these can cause conflict but not enough to call off the marriage. Do talk about all this with your partner and explain what is bothering you. You can easily thrash it out and have a conducive approach to these situations. Remember that the cardinal catalyst to any relationship of two or more people is communication ? which is a free, open sharing of your thoughts. It seems that you both have to do some work about understanding of marriage. Visit a marriage counselor, attend premarital counseling and iron out these anomalies soon. Where love is present, everything and anything is welcome expect abuse.
