Hi, 3 years ago, the people i trusted most cheated me for all my money. Then they verbally humiliated me for trusting them. I am suffering the pain inflicted by the humiliation. Can't focus on my research after that, I need to forget that all, It is been 3 years but yet feels like yesterday. Please provide suggestions to get rid of these memories ?

Dear, You are not alone. Almost all adolescent people do have such attitude. It is not your fault but your developmental mile stone. You are learning LIFE. Don't worry. You have concentration if you are able to watch movie for 2 hours continuously. In the matter of studies, you do not have attention because you are not interested in it. You are not interested because you do not have any concrete aim.

Dear Lybrate user. I can understand. Memory and mind power depends on three aspects. Understanding, retention and recollection. Recollection is easy if your retention is proper and flawless. Retention is possible when you are able understand what you read or learn. To understand you should have concentration. Concentration comes from effective learning techniques based on creative and active learning. Physical exercise, outdoor games, entertainment, socializing coupled with systematic learning improves your memory and mind power. Vegetables, fruits and nuts are perfect for memory. Brain games like sudoku and jigsaw puzzles helps too. I suggest online education counseling. Take care.

Hello Teenagers are getting into bad things now a days. Those staying in hostel, are more prone to get it. Being as a hosteler, I can personally feel what all is going in your mind. Well, ask her friendly the reason behind sleeping in others room & in case if you are not satisfied, follow the friends of your daughter on Facebook. What ever teenagers they do, they are keen of posting and sharing on social media to gain publicity. Rest, you can simply follow her without letting her down. She may lost her moral. Be calm and try to become friend of your daughter. Spend more time with her. Start taking her to shopping and other places, so that she would start spending more time with you. This is how one will get to know the reason behind her activities. Sometimes, when a person doesn't gets love/attention from family, he runs here and there to get attention/love/care. Start giving her full attention. Hope she will come back on right platform soon.

A heart-break or rejection in a relationship is processed by our brain in the same way as physical pain. So the pain you are feeling is very natural and very normal. Your mind will take time to come out of it. Like any other wound, emotional wounds also take time to heal. On an average, a time of 6 months is required for the grief to reduce. Of course you can make this process faster or slower. If you want to come out of this, then first thing you need to realize is that you need your love and attention right now. You have to treat yourself as the most valuable person in the world. You need to figure out ways to please and pamper yourself, respect yourself and love yourself. Giving a small treat like a new shirt or a hairstyle will boost your self-esteem. Meeting old friends and new people will work wonders. On the other hand, if you want to delay this process then you will remain in the self- pity mode. You will keep thinking that you are a victim and you are the most deprived person in the world. You will keep blaming someone or something for your misery. You will keep calling yourself a failure. The fact is, most relationships in your age'fail' people don't fail. You are not the only one. Lastly and most importantly, seek professional help because you have constant low mood, suicidal thoughts, lack of sleep, sadness, etc. Please go to a psychiatrist as soon as possible. This could be depression. It will not let you come out of this phase unless you take treatment.

Thinking is part of life and also this is the age on many changes in life, like career, parents, job, relationships, marriage etc. Relax and respond to your thoughts one by one. Stop thinking same thing again and again, find solutions and move on.

How to die bravely when one has no money to get treatments of ones ilness?

You will die when you are supposed to die. Any other choice you make in defiance of this is suicide. If this is done for the defense of injustice, the nation or in protecting others it is justified, especially if the cause is worthy. For poverty and the inability to finance your treatments, it is not good enough to commit suicide. You must approach many philanthropists, NGOs, agencies, churches, hospitals, free clinics etc. To fund your situation. There are many but may be you are reluctant to put in that effort. For your welfare, you must go that extra mile and seek help. Even if people want to help you, they want to see your commitment as a sign that it is worth helping you. I think that is fair. You may be discouraged by the many refusals you may have encountered. That still does not mean you must give up. Seek and you shall find. Suicide is cowardice not bravery.

It seems to me that you are not following up the psychiatic treatment properly and also that your physical conditions are caused by your mental illness which needs a long term treatment. Side effects generally will last for 2 to 4 weeks and your body will get adjusted soon. If the side effects persist more than a month do not hesitate to check with your psychiatrist who can make changes accordingly.

That sounds like a good idea for you. If I was the woman, I would certainly not want to be married to you just to solve your depression and to keep you happy. All this sound selfish and you must look at what you are bringing to the marriage. You have to be there to satisfy the woman too. In all this I suggest that you look to treat yourself and then consider proposing to a woman. You have to be an asset in a relationship and not a liability. Meet with a counselor and work out your issues, and if that person advises that you meet with a doctor, please do so and comply with both therapies. Marriage plans can wait; your wellbeing is important.

Your worrying about your future and career could be the reason that stress may be the cause of your acidity. You must meet with a counselor and take some measures to alleviate your stress. Stress management classes will certainly help too. Your must watch your diet to reduce acidity (include a lot of probiotics in your food intake), and you must start an exercise program too. Make sure you get good sleep every day. Our mind can disturb our body by a whopping 98% with stress and cause a lot of psychosomatic problems. You calm your mind, you heal your body.

Do you know why some people accomplish more and generally are much happier in their lives?

The field of positive psychology explains this. Research says, one of the signature strengths that such people have is" gratitude. Gratitude makes them take better care of themselves physically and mentally. It also makes people engage in more proactive and healthy way. It promotes the motivation for exercise, healthy diet and willingness to wriggle out of any negative situations in life. It helps boost your immune system. Since it makes you more optimistic and alert, you cope better with stress and feel healthier.

How to have an attitude of gratitude?

1) be mindful of what you have - being thankful for very small things actually bring a great amount of joy. Have gratitude for small things like sunlight, rain, flowers, a cup of tea, a caring spouse, a child's laughter. It gives us the resilience to cope with tougher situations.

2) keep a gratitude journal - every night before going to bed, write down" what was the best thing that happened to you that day. It fosters better sleep and a sense of well being and satisfaction.

3) reframe challenging situations - it's not the situation but our perception of the situation that makes it challenging. You can reframe your reactions and respond by saying that" I may have a very demanding boss, but I have become more organized, patient. It will help you to attend to your work and be cheerful.

4) practice saying thank you - it's very simple. When you buy a bus ticket, just smile and say'thank you. Feel the first raindrops on your face and smile in gratitude for all the life it brings.

5) focus your attention outwards - according to emmons, a us psychology professor, people who are more aware of the positives in their lives tend to focus their attention outside of themselves. They feel complete, satisfied and fulfilled in their lives and are capable of helping the less fortunate ones.

You have to make a timetable that is not very harsh and not very lax. You have to assign yourself tasks in a graded manner. Dont assign too many things to yourself all of a sudden. if you fail once or twice, dont catastrophise it. it happens to everybody. Try again. Remember a partial failure is also a partial success. See things in positive light. Give credit to yourself. Thinking is the first step to taking action. You have already got the step 1 right. Step 2 shall soon follow. Don't worry. It is only a matter of time. take care!

Hello Lybrate friend, lybrate-user being straight forward is a very nice quality. But you cannot expect everyone to be the same. Acceptance and expectance are two very different things. Expectations are only in your head and more than often you will be disappointed because of your expectations. On the other hand acceptance can make your life pretty simple. Since everyone is different and we have no control over how the other person behaves all we can do is keep a check on ourselves. And being straightforward does not necessarily mean that every time you will have to offend someone else by speaking it out. We need to maintain a necessary peace in the society and always saying it out does not help. So just stay the way you are but only modify your straightforward behavior a little so that you don't end up offending anyone. That's all. Because you are too young to conclude so much about the life. Just keep calm and continue living. Surround yourself with more positive thoughts and keep working onthem and live a happy and fruitful life. Wish you all the best.

I am suffering from acute back pain and pain in the thigh and left hip for the last two months even after taking all medicine and physiotherapy treatment and homeopathic treatment. I slipped while coming out from a lift in the month of May after I returned after visiting my ailing brother who has been diagnosed with rapidly progressive dementia and his condition is deteriorating day by day. My parents are not alive and he is the only one who can come in high and low times. I become so much depressed after seeing him in such a state. I keep on crying and praying for my brother recovery but Dr. said it is incurable. I don't know what to do. My family and kids are also suffering due to my condition but I am unable to keep control on my emotions. Please guide me what to do. Thanks a lot for your help.

Some facts in life are to be accepted as they are. Some chronic ailments lie dementia have a defined course. Your attached emotions with your brother are understandable, but your feelings and emotions seem to be dominated by sadness and negativism towards self and surroundings. This definitely suggests a depressive disorder which is probably assisted in precipitation by a hypothyroid state and post hysterectomy status. I would suggest you to consult a psychiatrist with your latest thyroid reports and consider starting some helpful medications to alleviate depression. You may consult me online fro any further queries and treatment.
