You don't have b12 deficiency, but it's levels are reduced. Don't worry it's treatable with that injections, but some more assessment should be done. Don't worry about depression for now, but you need to be assessed by psychiatrist, consult online.

At your age some children will experience memory problems because of hormonal imbalances and its accompanying distractions. You may also be under some stress. So if you handled stress better, you will certainly improve. 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, 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. 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. Recently they have discovered that moderate consumption of red wine and peanuts do help. You may also meet with a counselor to take care of the stress related emotions, and then you will fare better too.

It seems like you have an anxiety issues, which may have triggered due to some incidents. Consider these suggestions. -first, slow down. When we are anxious our thoughts race, our hearts pounds, our breathing accelerates. So at the first sign of it see what all you can do to intentionally slow things down. -anxiety lives in our minds and often manifests in the body that's why you are feeling dryness of your mouth, fast heart beats, racing thoughts etc. So take a few moments to connect with your five senses, it will help bring you back into the moment. -be mindful while doing simple tasks, like walking, eating, reading, cooking etc. Being mindful helps remind us we are in control of our choices. - be aware of your thought process. When you have a negative thought, ask yourself" is this thought true? chances are your worst fears are not the reality of what's happening. - be aware of your triggers. If you know your triggers, you can prepare soothing practices better. When the mind feels prepared, it's more at ease. Take care.

Hi lybrate-user It seems like you have had some very difficult experiences that continue to make you feel distressed. It is natural for anyone to continue feeling worried and stressed if traumatic experiences are not processed (which can happen for many reasons ranging from adverse childhood experiences to lack of adequate resources in the present). Generally, as we try to 'delete' or 'forgive and move on' without working through the unpleasant emotions, we end up getting even more worried. To use a cliche, its like the elephant in the room. Also, in such situations, in addition to the difficult events, we also start doubting ourselves and worrying about our inability to forget and move on. This only adds to the distress, and can be a very frustrating cycle. To begin with, please give yourself time, patience and care you deserve, in the same way as you would care for someone you love. I think you are likely to find it helpful to seek help from a qualified psychologist who understands trauma, and who will be able to help you work through these concerns. All the best.

You need to visit a psychiatrist. After 1 or 2 sessions the psychiatrist can roughly predict the time for recovery and duration of treatment. All the best.

Because of bad viral fever you are in bad mood. It is not caused for depression. Generally anything happen internally or externally some depressive thoughts comes automatically. We should not take it seriously. It should not link to the past days. If depression comes also you should not bend. Take some psychological counselling sessions. I think previously you are not attending psychological counselling sessions. Better to attend now it self. Life style modification therapy helps to you very much. So better to take. There is no side effects. Best of luck. My best wishes always with you. God bless you.

Sounds to me like you are into an anger related depression. If you have not been on medication and you want to remain so, you will have to work very hard to recover from this condition. You must first of all seek the help of a counselor, ideally. If that person thinks that you need to meet with a doctor you will need to do so and cooperate right through. 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 scotching 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: find someone to love and to love you back, if you are not already married. 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 everyday and learn to be contended 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 calisthenic exercises with some form of counting, regularly. Whatever happens please cooperate with the therapy and do not discontinue until the condition is completely resolved.

Don't focus on removing negative thoughts, it will come back even stronger! Focus on engaging in positive activities, productive activities, challenging and satisfying activities and leave the negative thoughts alone, they will go away! no need to bother about them. Very useful technique! try it out.. Go out and take a brisk walk everyday, mingle with friends, give more time to hobbies, restart old given up hobbies, eat and sleep regularly, relive the good old days, enjoy life! you become what you think you are!

I have tongue tie. I cannot speak faster in public conversation. I have to apply lot of pressure in my tongue. I want to know whether tongue tie release will help me in my speech? How much it is effective?

Hi lybrate-user. If the tongue tie is partial and you can articulate sounds like t and d correct then generally a surgery is not advised. Its better to get tongue tie removed in childhood as speech sounds are developed normally without help. Anyways if you are not comfortable then go to ent surgeon.

I have suddenly developed blocked vocal cord from the last day. I am unable to speak properly. Neither my tonsils nor my pharynx is inflamed. Why can't I speak properly?

MBBS, MD - Psychiatry, MBA (Healthcare)
Psychiatrist, Davanagere
Good Morning ~ If you have been shouting very much lately or speaking in loud voices you may have aseptic laryngitis which is usually the case of loss of voice. However, it is temporary and usually gets better with voice rest, steam inhalation and soothing lozenges. You can start speaking properly in a couple of days, if it persists beyond that please consult with an otorhinolaryngologist or an ENT specialist.

I am 24 years old and I am in a relationship with a man. I am insecure towards this relationship. I have fallen in love for the first time and it is long distance relationship. I am anxious that he does not love me. As there are no attempts from his side to nurture the relationship. In my opinion, when a person is in love. A person should do things that love can grow healthy. A surprise call in the middle of the day would do. But I thing my boyfriend do not care that much. I have discussed things with him earlier about it but there is no improvement or any change in his behaviour. He does not understand my emotional needs. Please help me. All these things are making me awake all night and over stressed.

Dear lybrate-user, I understand. It is important to remember we are only in control of our own emotions, thoughts and behaviors, we cannot control what another persons thinks, feels and does. Many times there is a miscommunication among partners in relationships due to varied expectations. It is important to sit down with your partner and list out your expectations and allow for your partner to do the same. From this you can create common goals and work towards it to improve your relationship. I hope this helps you and your partner better understand each others emotional needs. Please consult privately for further help. Good Luck.
