Hi, you need to consult a speech language pathologist (slp) also called as speech therapist who would do an informal and formal tests to identify your problem and diagnose your condition and also help you in treating your speech problem with an appropriate plan. Stammering does not have any medicinal cure but you can also speak better with therapy by a certified speech therapist. There is no allopathic remedy for this.

This has often been the problem with treatment: you must combine medication with counseling to get the best results. It is still not too late to go for counseling. Normally, anxiety goes with depression and it looks like some counseling may have helped with that. Anxiety is an abnormal form of fear. So some emotional therapy will certainly help her to deal with the​ fear.

Clonotril is a benzodiazeine. It has addictive potential. Talk to your doctor to wean off clonotril and try on something else which is non-addictive.

I have Gender Identity Disorder, am a female now but would like to transform into a male. My parents agreed for me to go ahead but they don't want to be involved with all the meetings. And my doctor seem to be handling it for the first time for he keeps calling my father. Hence now my father is irritated and I am back to where I started i.e to convince them again. I am 23 years old. Am I not matured enough to take my own decision for this when I am firm about it ? I can answer all the questions but why is it so hard for me in India to even consult a doctor on my own?

Dear lybrate user, you may need a bit of willpower to stop smoking permanently. You could easily abstain yourself from smoking during the initial 2-3 days. But after few days of abstaining from smoking you will feel a strong craving to smoke a cigarette whenever you face any tense situation. Here lies your real test. You will need a lot of willpower to resist that craving & face any tense situation without the help of nicotine. However, you can take homoeopathic mother tincture daphne indica q, 30 drops, thrice daily, after meals, in a cup of water. This medicine will help to reduce your craving for nicotine. To minimise the bad-effects of smoking take one single bulb garlic everyday at morning before brushing your teeth.

I loss my concentration power Also I have a breath problem My heartbeats are rapidly like train.

You must go for a full medical examination to a physician and check the breathing and heart beat problems. I suspect that the adolescent issues with regard to hormones may be affecting your ability to concentrate and remember. When the hormones play up, it lasts for a period of close to two years and during that time you could be influenced by three signs directly impacted by the chemical: you will tend to become aggressive and rebellious, you will become sexually active, and you will have acne and pimple problems. The hormonal imbalances may not only impact your memory because of the chemical but also bring some distractions that come with it. But you may work on the following even if the hormones kick in: Daily exercise of at least half an hour is a must. Even if you go to a gym, ask for aerobic and/or callisthenic exercises with whatever else you are doing. A healthy body harbors a healthy mind. With regard to memory, it is very important that your brain and body is ideally rested to be able to recall whatever is required, rather comfortably. Puzzles pose problems to the brain that help it to use new pathways and neurons, which give the brain considerable exercise. It taxes the left brain to use logic to solve the myriad possibilities which other activities do not stimulate. Crosswords are excellent for vocabulary learning and use. Jigsaws and Rubik cube stimulate different permutations to finally settle on the most likely one. Picture completion and anagrams help approach problem solving from several angles. Do Sudoku, and memory co-relation activities and skills. Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber (whole grains, fruits and vegetables), nuts, avocado, eat dark chocolate, consume less of fat and use olive oil instead, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. You need to check out if you are stronger visual or auditory. The visual is a better mode than the auditory. However, if you combine the two modes, you will get the best concentration. Have a special place of learning, which should be well lit, with soft painted walls, well-ventilated, with no distractions. When you get bored, study by writing. If you repeat learning at least five to seven times, you will apparently remember for a longer time. Sit comfortably but do not slouch. The reading material should be of a fairly large print. Study at small intervals of about 40 minutes and then take a break or change the subject.There is a new exercise called Super Brain Yoga, which is done by holding the right earlobe with your left thumb and index finger, and the left earlobe with your right hand’s thumb and index finger. In this position you must squat down and rise up and do this for five minutes every day. Short-term memory is a faculty of the left brain, and long-term memory is a feature of the right brain. When people are stressed, they tend to favor the right brain and abandon the left brain, where short-term memory resides. So, it is really very simple: deal with the stress and activate left brain functions. Here are a few suggestions to activate left brain function: shut your left nostril and breathe, move your eyes from right to left and vice versa for at least half a minute at a time, and do callisthenic exercises with some form of counting, regularly. There are some memory enhancing techniques and study methods that your teacher will be able to guide you with. If your home life is full of distractions and stress, it is likely to affect your memory, adversely. In that case, I suggest that the family goes for counseling too. The following foods do help too: Blueberries, walnuts, turmeric, Spinach, tomatoes, broccoli, acorn squash, green tea, oily fish, boiled egg, turkey, apples, oatmeal, leafy greens, lentils, pumpkin seeds, avocado, cinnamon, thyme, sunflower seeds, and red wine. Avoid junk food.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. The duty of your mind is to think. If you are unable to control your mind, your mind will wander into negative territories which in tuen will give anxiety and stress. I suggest online counselling, life style changes and cognitive therapy. Feel free to contact me. Take care.

It looks like she is going through adjustment difficulties in the new household. In this house, you are the only person on whom she is depending. Encourage her to communicate openly with you to tell you what is bothering her, what would she like to do in the present situation, try to know the reason that what about your mother's behaviour is bothering her so much. It would be good if she can directly talk through Lybrate or any other source to a professional. You can take her out, and when her mood is better then ask her these things. Generally the tendency is that whenever someone is complaining against our own people we become defensive. I will suggest you to be objective and try to understand her from different perspective. And then you can talk to your mother later on but not taking your wife's name.

You have an anger related depression and need immediate help. Fear and depression tend to go together but with some help, you should well out of the problem. You have not mentioned your age so it is difficult to guide you completely well. If you have depression then there are some major ramifications to take into account. I believe there may be some genetic predisposition or there has been some childhood issue, related to anger, that needs urgent attention. You must go and meet with a counselor immediately and if that person advises that you meet with a doctor you must do so and cooperate to your utmost. Please visit these professionals along with your parents. In the meantime please do the following sincerely because you could resolve the problem better with good cooperation: Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber, nuts, avocado, exercise regularly, eat dark chocolate, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. I suggest you do the opposite of what this depression makes you feel like doing (actually, not doing): you will need to fight this condition. You must become active; stay upright during the daylight time; meet people; never sleep during the day, wake up by 6 am every day, play some active games, especially contact games, do physical exercises, talk to people and join some social clubs, attend Yoga classes etc. Watch sitcoms on TV or comedies and cheer yourself up. Go for excursions in groups, for outings, camps, conferences, and religious conventions. Get a pet dog and spend time training it, exercising it and relating to it. Expose yourself to some sunlight every day, at least, 30 minutes but not in the scorching heat. Whatever happens, please incorporate these three important adaptations in your life: always be responsible, be respectful, and be functional. If you did these three, lots of things will go well in life. Please pray and have faith in God to alleviate your sufferings. Don’t wait for others to help. Use your own motivation, which might be at its lowest, but persevere and win this battle. Above all to be really happy, you need to live in love and for love. Learn all about emotions and how to handle them and that will get you out of the depression rather easily and quickly. A counselor is there only to facilitate you, all the hard word must come from you, and your cooperation with that person is very critical for your success. Be positive every day and learn to be contented with what you have. Do some left brain exercises: it is the happy brain. Here are a few suggestions: shut your left nostril and breathe, move your eyes from right to left and vice versa for at least half a minute at a time, and do callisthenic exercises with some form of counting, regularly. Whatever happens please cooperate with the therapy and do not discontinue until the condition is completely resolved. Life is extremely precious and the depression​ can make you feel like quitting but you must never give up.

If you do not want to be gay, do talk to a sexologist and work through that person to explore the possibility of regaining your heterosexual status. A hypnotherapist?s services may also be required. The factors and features that draw you towards homosexuality have to be identified; and the factors and features that help you to be drawn towards heterosexuality have to be stimulated in you. The leaning may have happened during your developmental milestones (between 7 years and 14 years when we are all homosexual as part of our social development), or it may have happened due to an overbearing mother and/or docile father or even an over-strict father, or it could have happened by mere exposure for a long time with males only, or it could have been due to the lack of or restricted meeting of females, or it could be because the female was considered too difficult to relate to, or it could be because of genetic factors, and it could be due to prenatal influences. It is still unclear whether you could change completely away from being gay. Most research shows that you could move away or broaden your preferences without actually giving up the homosexuality. But there is a huge debate and criticism of the various claims of reparative therapy. ?The main organization advocating secular forms of conversion therapy is the National Association for Research & Therapy of Homosexuality (NARTH), which often partners with religious groups. Techniques used in conversion therapy include aversive treatments, such as "the application of electric shock to the hands and/or genitals" and "nausea-inducing drugs.Administered simultaneously with the presentation of homoerotic stimuli" masturbatory reconditioning, visualization, social skills training, psychoanalytic therapy, and spiritual interventions, such as "prayer and group support and pressure? (source: http://en.Wikipedia.Org/wiki/Conversion_therapy). As recommended earlier, you can approach a sexologist and see what can be done. Apparently, your willingness is a huge plus factor, if any change can happen.

You most certainly are depressed. It does not help if people ignore you: this could lead to an escalation of your plight to worsening conditions. Do not neglect this any further. Go and meet a psychiatrist and a counselor immediately, along with your husband. Depression makes you want to withdraw, lie down, sleep, become lethargic, slow down, makes you too lazy to even think etc. You will need to fight this disease. You must become active; stay upright during the daylight time; meet people; never sleep during the day, and wake up by 6 am every day, play some active games, especially contact games, do physical exercises, talk to people and join some social clubs, eat more of proteins and vegetables, attend Yoga classes etc. Watch a lot of sitcoms on TV or comedies and cheer yourself up. Go for excursions in groups, for outings, camps, conferences, and religious conventions. Get a pet dog and spend time training it, exercising it and relating to it. Expose yourself to some sunlight every day, at least 30 minutes but not in the scotching heat. I hope you can get your husband and son to love you and spend time with you. Whatever happens please incorporate these three important adaptations in your life: always be responsible, be respectful, and be functional. If you did these three things lots of things will go well in life. Please pray and have faith in God to alleviate your sufferings.

It can be quite hurting if your partner keeps comparing you to his ex. It will take time for your relationship with him to bloom and gradually fade away old memories. Take time to understand each other and expectations from the marriage and each other. And you can also bring it to his notice that when he compares you feel hurt/worried/small/confused/angry etc. giving your reasons for feeling so. Do this without blaming him. But remember that he may not be able to understand you. In this situation it is important to take care of yourself and your feelings. Counselling helps you to overcome such situations and also develop skills of open communication.
