I am 22 years old and currently doing pg in physics. I have the problem that I usually feel frightened to speak in front of a gathering, and the problem only becomes worse if there are women around. Like I somehow don't feel comfortable in classroom and ask questions to the teacher. I always feel uncomfortable to speak to the girls when they come to for help or to discuss anything. I feel awkward (become red faced and sweat) if people look at me when I speak, but there is no such problem if there is complete darkness or there are only a few known people around. I have always been a bright student with thousands of successes to cheer about but this problem somehow doesn't allow me to enjoy my hard earned successes. Now I am in a fix what to do. I was thinking about taking sbl tranquil. please let me know if it is gonna help.

Stammering is not a disease it's always related to your psyche. Stammering is a normal phenomena it happens to all in different life situations. All have fears, anxieties while talking to strangers, opposite gender or seniors. But god has gifted us with coping mechanisms which help us to deal with such fears or anxieties. If one lag to cope in such situations stammering increases n becomes uncontrollable this is where the problem starts. So try to be confident and never avoid any situation where you feel under confident. Let stammering happen rather than avoiding talking in a particular situation or with someone. It will boost your confidence. Try to consult a good speech pathologist/ therapist. Speech therapy along with counseling will be of greater help. Try to speak slow and boost up your confidence. Talk to all avoid none. Take care.

Dear, there is no such diet. You should have interest in your subject and you should be passionate. You should also get at least 6 hours of sleep every day. Be health, stress free and happy. You will be able to perform well. Take care.

I am anjali (18 years old), suffering from major depression since last two-three years, scored 87 in goldberg's depression test and this year was the worst of all I somehow suffered from hypomania as I learned about its symptoms now online. I am not able to judge my awkward behaviour. I even had anxiety attacks not very much but more than rare. Depression took place from last three to four years back leading me to live all alone without telling anyone about my problems as ultimately no one believes in what I say. And everyone including my family members tend to say I talk rubbish, can never stick to a point while explaining something. It lead to me with poor results in school, family and everywhere and all over I am trying to get rid of this disgusting life and tried to commit suicide from last two years but unfortunately I am not able to judge my unusual behaviour which makes me a fool in front of everyone and no one is able to get my awkward behaviour. I always forget things happen just a minute before, have racing thoughts in my mind, always lack self confidence and become nervous but I don't know how I become so much active and become overconfident, excessively cry always but sometimes I laugh excessively and try to joke poorly and realize afterwards what have I done in front of everyone. I am totally confused about me and my life. Even while trying to get rid of this life I think that after this also everyone will blame me of being responsible for all this. What should I do? Please help me out.

Dear lybrate-user, Probably you are suffering from a Bipolar Disorder which has 4 different phases in the same person. 1. Depression - as you have suffered 2. Hypomania or mania - as you have self diagnosed at present. 3. Mixed phase - both depressive and manic symptoms occur together for few days and 4. Normal phase. Instead of taking only a depression scale, please take a Bipolar scale. Since you are only 18 years, psychiatrists may not diagnose without family history or disturbances in your life due to mood changes, etc. Kindly consult a psychiatrist preferably with your parents and get diagnosed. Bipolar disorder can be treated with long term mood stabiliser tablets to improve your quality of life.

Hi lybrate-user. your stress is the body's response to the demands of life & it also involves your emotions and mind which is eventually affecting your health try to talk about what issues have led to stress. Try relaxation techniques like deep breathing, meditation or involve some activity like yoga or dance whatever you like. Try to change your negative thought patterns if you have any, focus more on positive and keep doing reality testing to check if your nt making exaggerations or assumptions abt issues. Talk about what is stressing you more often to your dear one.

Very good mohammed. It is good that you are looking for a healthy life I hope you will also stop smoking. First thing that you are little overweight as per height and weight. Your bmi score is 26. Start exercise. Best for you is yoga. Take coriander (green) boil it in water and drink it daily morning. This will let your toxin excrete via urine. Eat plenty of raw vege and fruits (after october). All citrus fruits will help you to detoxification. In dryfruits take walnut, figs, dates in plenty. Use extra vergin olive oil to keep your lungs and heart healthy. (1) arjunarishtam (nagarjuna) for strengthen heart and lungs both.

I was prescribed homeo remedy quercus glandibus for alcohol cravings about 2 months ago. 40 drops 3 times a day. I have been taking it as prescribed and my alcohol cravings are gone for now. I need some advice on how long I need to take this and if it has to be tapered off, then how. The doctor who prescribed this far away and not traceable.

Dear Luise, Since alcohol is a sedative, when you stop drinking there is difficulty in sleeping. The brain gets used to the drinks. It will ask you to give drinks by disturbing your sleep. So, doctors' first medicine when you stop alcohol is a Calmpose kind of drug. There are many types of such drugs - both tablets and injections. Few act only for 2 hours, few acts longer than 24 hours. It will be given for 2-3 weeks initially, when you stop drinking, depending on your need. It is a drug to stop you from suffering withdrawal symptoms. It may be given throughout the day also for few days so that you will not go for alcohol immediately. You will also be given motivational enhancement therapy and stress management therapy in first 12 weeks. You can also start with anticraving drugs like Acamprosate, Baclofen and Naltrexone. They postpone your craving for alcohol. Not immediately - but in 3 months or so. They also make your brain to tolerate less and less alcohol. They are costly and need to be given for 9 months to a year in appropriate dose. You can also ask for aversion therapy with Disulfiram. It makes the alcohol into a poison. The effect of poison, you don't like. You will be OK after taking the drug daily. The drug acts only when alcohol gets into your blood. Since the poison effect happens as soon as you drink, you feel like not drinking or induce vomiting after drinking. This drug is cheap, only less than Rs.2/day. It can be taken for life. Better to assign someone who will give the drug daily to you. May be your wife or mother. All the other drugs you can take by yourself.

This product is used to clean stool from the intestines before surgery or certain bowel procedures (e. G. Colonoscopy, radiography), usually with other products. It may also be used for relief of constipation. However, milder products (e. G. Stool softeners, bulk-forming laxatives) should be used whenever possible for constipation. Magnesium citrate is a saline laxative that is thought to work by increasing fluid in the small intestine. It usually results in a bowel movement within 30 minutes to 3 hours.

I have read your query and understood your concerns. Lack of concentration can be a part of anxiety, depression and lots of stress. If you are having any persistent stress in your life then it needs to be addressed first. Relaxation therapy like yoga and meditation will help you a lot. Following are some tips to increase your mood and concentration: - engage in your hobbies - play indoor games with your children like carrom, chess, puzzle games etc. - play sudoku and solve crossword puzzles - talk to friends and go for outing whenever you are free - keep distance from alcohol and other drugs - make a schedule of activities to perform as per priority and follow the schedule - if you are forgetting appointments or meeting then make use of application for reminder - become social person if you are not - if your mind is distracted somewhere start counting backwards from 100. By the time you reach 50, you shall find yourself relieved. - keep yourself updated about current political affairs - take help from friends - take a good night sleep of at least 8 hours.

Dear, I sincerely think you have possessive disorder. You are overly possessed with your boy friend, which is not right at this point or any time in the future. Such a possessiveness could ruin your life. In my opinion, you should understand him as a human being and not a toy in your hand. Treat him with respect and dignity. You may go for a psychological counseling. Or you may talk to me over phone and I may provide you mobile counseling. Take care.

Hello. Sometimes I have speaking problem. I feel difficult to utter words. But it happens only when I feel nervous. May be its due to stage fear. But what is the solution for this. Kindly suggest.

You can gradually get over the fear. Initially, try to rehearse a speech in front of a mirror. Then try to give a speech in front of your parent or sibling, then in front of a friend. Gradually increase the number to two and then three and so on. Try to achieve this over a period of 6 months. Have faith, i' m sure you'll get over it.
