I am a 20 year old female. I smile everytime. I can't stop it and everyone is starting to think that I am going crazy. I don't want to smile/laugh but it comes out naturally and I also get nervous when I talk to unknown people. I cannot even face my parents anymore because of this. I start smiling when I start talking or looking at someone. I was not like this before and I also had very bad experiences in my past. Please help me.

Hello. I am recommending you medicines, but you need to take this medicine regularly for 15days and make sure that you will be giving me feedback of the treatment positively after that. Homoeopathic medicines (Schwabe's) - Ignatia 30/ daily in the morning. Kali Phos. 6X/ one dose at night daily. And don't bother about others, people need some spicy topics to gossip all the time. It's your life, live it your way and let other people live their own life. They are just around you to discourage you and your confidence level! They are happy to see others sad. They wouldn't be there in need of time, so be with those people who boost up your confidecne, makes you happy and gives you positive vibes!!

When people are very scared they tend to increase urination and may increase bowel movement. You should meet with a counselor and deal with your fear. The stress that you feel is not dependent on the stressor: It is entirely dependent on your perception of stress. Life is difficult no doubt, as a general rule, but what we do adds to the stress in our response. We add to the stress of life instead of reducing it or learning to deal with it. Many of us follow a policy of avoidance. We cannot do that all of our lives. So the first thing to do is to change your perception. For example, look at it as a challenge that you would like to meet with a positive outlook. See everything as a gift from God to perform as though you are doing it for Him. God never gives us work to do beyond our capacity. Build a good constitution mentally, emotionally and physically to combat stress. Eat healthily, sleep well, and exercise regularly. Talk about your emotions regularly to a good friend or counselor every day. Learn stress management techniques. Do Yoga and meditation. Pray every day to God to give you the strength, and offer your work as a prayer to Him – you will give your best and you will feel so satisfied when you do it well.

Dear Lybrate user Right now your feelings and all for her are more important than anything else. Few years later it will not be as important as it is right now and you will regret the time you are wasting. Try to imagine your life few years from today where you could have gotten good marks and a good career but because of this you are not able to do that. Procastination also comes when you are hopeless so plan your study according to the time remaining and your syllabus. Make a schedule and try to follow it very strictly and also tell your family members and friends that you are doing this. Do not disturb you and encourage you if you start getting distracted. Take some break in between and listen some good songs (not sad songs or anything like that) or do something which you are interested in. Take a good sound sleep. Also do some physical exercise for like 15-20 mins in the morning or go for a walk. Reward yourself for small success you get in preparing for the exams. Stay away from everything which distracts you. If you want any help then contact me in private.

A boy of your talent has taken to masturbation. This is a sad thing. At your age you should concentrate just on your studies . Your mind and body will become weak if you continue excessive masturbation and than it will lead to other sexual problems also. It is better that you develop a strong will power and divert your mind. Get up early in the morning and go to a park for running. Practice yoga and meditation. Make some good friends who will help you concentrate in your studies. Talk to your parents about it, don't feel shy. They will certainly help you. Eat fresh fruits and veggies. All the best.

Loss of interest, decreased concentration and attention, feeling low and disturbed sleep or appetite are some of the signs of depression. Consult a psychiatrist who will assess you in detail. If you are feeling suicidal or hopeless, seek professional help immediately.

Hello, there are a few tips you can due to reduce stress and tension 1. Meditation- it always has been proven to be effective. 2. Take deep breathes. Take a breathe, count till 10, then release it. 3. Reach out- your social network works best. You can share with your close ones about your feelings and vent out if something is bothering you. 4. Listen to music.

Dear user, Anxiety disorders are a category of mental disorders characterized by feelings of anxiety and fear, where anxiety is a worry about future events and fear is a reaction to current events. These feelings may cause physical symptoms, such as a racing heart and shakiness. There are a number of anxiety disorders: including generalized anxiety disorder, a specific phobia, social anxiety disorder, separation anxiety disorder, agoraphobia, and panic disorder among others. While each has its own characteristics and symptoms, they all include symptoms of anxiety. Anxiety medicines alone cannot cure anxiety disorders mainly because medicines do not alter behavior. Behavior change and Continuous practice of the changed behavior cure anxiety. I suggest anxiety education, progressive counseling and progressive psychotherapy. I assure you complete cure. I need to know more about your anxiety so that I will be able to diagnose it properly and provide you tips to overcome and manage your anxiety. Take care.

Please understand that the schizophrenia is not fully curable. But you don't loose heart. Most of the symptoms of schizophrenia are body's natural defense mechanism. Psychotherapy, meditation and exercise combined with medicines should provide you good management opportunity.

Hello lybrate-user, firstly, stop smoking. It does cause contraction of the muscles and also causes acidity and heart burn. You can also take syp gelusil one tsp three times a day which will help in your symptoms. Drink luke warm water and mix a tsp of asafoetida in it. It will help relieve your symptoms.

Love is a mutual feeling, if she does not leave you, you have to leave the fascination for her and concentrate on your work till you find someone else, rather than waiting for her and brooding over the past. At 6 th standard mostly it is puppy love or infatuation. Time is the healer, if still you can not forget her consult a psychiatrist, he will be able to help you out. All the best.

Mr. Lybrate user, your brother is suffering from illusions/delusions like which cmes under schizophrenia under psychiatric illness. Inthis condition, he needs proper care& attention from family members, close intimate people, like wife or siblings, parents. First one should know the reason for developing such fears, & his original attitude, now the changed bhaviour& in b/w the reasons like any shocks, mental stress, any subconscious worries he has, any conflicts, his failures, etc all should be understood to treat him properly, he need counscelling also. In this condition, firts doctor also should be bery careful to understand the reason, so that they should be more friendly to develop frinedly intimacy. &moreover you should not say directly that its psychiatric propblem & need to see psychiatrist. In homeo, if patient& with the information given by family members, by understanding origin, causative factors, by giivng suitable medicines, he will develop gradual improvement. But not so quickly as you are expecting. In allopathy, by taking medicines, he will get improvement but there will be side effcets, & adverse effcts are there. He needs more famly members co operation& support now.

You should support him. Emotional and moral support will helps to him to come out of his status. No body should not do anything practically. But why should allow him lonely. As a friend we should support him. We show ways to overcome from his problems. Life is not ended with financial problems. It happens everyone life. We should tell truth of life. We should create a good environment. To entertain him. We should create a very good friendly relations. So you do as your level best friendly support o k. Good luck.
