Love /relationship is always a mutual thing. If it is one - sided it will only bring pain. The easiest and quickest way to forget her is to make a new girlfriend. Also focus on the negative aspects on her and the relationship for few days. And you will be soon back to happy ways :)

Hi, I want to ask that is there any pills or drugs treatment for stammering. My brother try many suggestion but he has no change in stammering. Please suggest some. Thanks.

MASLP

Hi unfortunately stammering has no medicinal treatment. However if your brother takes proper speech therapy from a qualified speech therapist then his problem can surely be solved. Speech therapy will involve air flow management techniques, proper breathing patterns, language and fluency techniques, a combination ofvvthese can help any chronic stutterer also. Good luck! you can consult me in private with details of the onset and course of your brothers stammering so that I can guide you better.

I would like to know who can provide proper medication for my wife who's in to Mania/Bipolar depression in Mumbai and around Suburb area? Few symptoms are as follows: I think she is into "Psychotic depression" as I read from one of the forums and especially if you read some of her recent signs what she is going through: 1. Give all money to beggars, kinners. And other old people who's asking for money 2. She thinks she is holding Shiva so she keeps yelling on family members all time 3. She thinks she bought our rental apartment, bought an Audi, and got 500+ crores with me 4. She listen to 3-4 particular songs and keep repeating them the whole day/ night 5. Doesn't want to sleep 6. 3-4 AM starts washing cloths 7. She doesn't care even our bedroom is messed up 8. Talks the whole day even with a strangers 9. Stops listening/ keeping her self away from all closed family or friends, and she gets super hyper if one of us try to say something 10. No fear of public and she doesn't feel embarrassed herself even walking with bare feet 11. Started putting everything on Facebook (in real life she doesn't that) 12. Broke 2 of her mobiles and then couldn't remember.Please tell sir .

Dear s user, thank you for writing to lybrate. I understand your concern about treatment of your wife. Elevated mood, grandiosity (claiming power, wealth, supreme identity, knowledge), diminished need for sleep, excessive talking or pressured speech, racing thoughts or flight of ideas in mind, clear evidence of distractibility, increased level of goal-focused activity at home, excessive pleasurable activities or spending too much often with painful consequences all are symptoms of manic episode of bipolar mood disorder, severe with psychotic symptoms. I suggest you to consult a psychiatrist who has indoor treatment facility. She requires hospitalization and indoor management. When patients with severe mania with psychotic symptoms are brought to my hospital, I hospitalize them. I give them medications like lithium carbonate, olanzapine and lorazepam. With availability of latest brief pulse and ultra brief pulse ect devices, electroconvulsive therapy (ect) is a safe and effective biological treatment which improves mania rapidly. I also recommend ect for her. She will definitely improve with treatment. I recommend treatment earliest. Warm regards.

I feel my teacher as my mother, and when someone goes close to her, suddenly I get so much anger and I behave so rudely, and many times I thought to harm myself by cutting my hands or taking any other serious injury. Is this any mental disorder? What I have to do.

Dear Lybrate user. I can understand. This is a mental disorder called obsession or possessiveness. Don't worry there is treatment. You have to adjust your thought pattern. You can continue to count your teacher as your mother. But don't get aggressive on someone speaking to her. You need Rational Emotive Therapy. Take care.

Dear lybrate-user, The disease depression has diurnal variation. That means, they are worse in the morning and by afternoon they improve. Some days they are fine and some other days they are worse. All these are without any major cause. Tiredness and no interest in anything also are symptoms of disease depression. It is a TREATABLE disease with antidepressant tablets and therapy by any psychiatrist. Some trained physicians also will treat her with antidepressant tablets.

I am student and my memory is not best always I forget my answers I will try so many tricks write down properly that tym I can answer but after some tym I just forget and there is so many syllabus this is not possible I will revise daily what I eat that my memory becomes best.

Dear Lybrate user. I can understand. Memory and mindpower depends on three important factors. They are understanding, retention and recollection. You should be able to understand the passage or the information given perfectly so as to help your brain to retain the information or knowledge. Once it is retained properly, recollection happens whenever a memory relation is given. Understanding usually requires creative learning methods and repetition. Providing rest to your brain every half hour while studying continuously help improve concentration. Physical exercises, entertainment, socialization improves memory. Diet which includes fruits, vegetables, nuts also improves memory. Mind games like Sudoku too help. Please understand these facts and apply them on your daily routine. Take care.

Dear lybrate-user, welcome to lybrate. Memory and mind power depends mainly on three aspects. Understanding, storage and recollection. To understand what you are studying, you must be able to be attentive or concentrate. Concentration is possible when you are interested in that subject. Creative way of learning can help you concentrate and understand easily. When you are able to understand and concentrate, it is stored within your brain. If you read more and more it will be store in long term memory. Third part is retrieval. Whenever you want to retrive what you learned and stored, your brain gets the request, searches the database and retrieves the information for you. The retrieval may prove to be difficult if you are anxious, stressed, worried or tired physically or mentally. Retrieval is more easy when you are relaxed and healthy. Brain needs nutrients to keep itself sharp. Fruits, vegetables and dry fruits provide much needed nutrients for your brain. Include at least one fruit in your daily diet. Physical exercises, entertainment, hobbies, relaxation, memory games like sudoku etc help keep your memory sharp and active. Take care.

Kindly accept my deep-felt condolences at your loss especially at such a prime age. Unexpected death is a shock and may take a long time to grieve, completely. I suggest you talk about your feelings to a confidante or counselor to express your grief, even if you have to do it bit-by-bit until it is completely out of your system. The shock may also induce personal fears of dying and death. I don? t know how your son expired but if you are following a healthy lifestyle, you are in no danger. I hope that you are fit and fine yourself. If not, kindly get into a regimen of exercise, rest, diet and stress-free living. Spiritual pursuits are very soothing and calming to your soul, mind and body. So develop some practice around it and attend important discourses. Yoga and meditation are excellent too. Keep good relations with everybody and live a life of love. If there is someone to be forgiven do so immediately. All the talking you can do is the best medicine for you right now to get over your son's death.

Hi. I am 22 year old boy. I am in a relationship since last 5 years, its a distant relationship, but I oftenly use to meet her. I love her a lot. She means a lot to me and I want to spend whole of my life with her only. It is not a lustful relationship. My love for her kept flourishing with time like a flower does. I had a truly bonding with her, now also I am having but this is what I want to discuss about, since last two years, I had been suffering from anxiety and due to that, I also suffered with somewhat depression. But now I am not having depression. And if I talk about anxiety, then I do not know whether is it there or not but I do feel like brain fog now, my head feels like something is missing out from my middle part of head, it feels somewhat light inside my head. When I was extremely suffering with anxiety and dep. I used to wath porn and masturbate, with time it got increased, on average I used to masturbate 5 times a day, sometimes 6 or 7.I was very moral person and I think it was never good to do that with such a noble relation I am having, I believe that it was a cheating to her, my her. But still I did that coz it made me somewhat relaxed. Now what a problem is that I am not feeling emotionally with her like before. Those emotions which always made me smile, cry, excited, now I am not having them. And it hurts me and I feel so sad about that. I can not live my life without her. Yes I do can survive, but such a life without her is meaningless to me. I just want those emotions back in my life, I want to live her emotionally and physically and by all means. Please guide me.

Hello lybrate-user - I don't know why you feel that there is something you lost and you have no feeling for her like in past. You are as you were believe it and please be positive always in your life because positivity is the thing which gives you everything you want from life. Think that you love her more than past and you do care for her emotions. Keep calm and relax yourself and try to do meditation and during meditation think as what I say that you love her very much and care for her very much every thing is fine between you and her. These thoughts will help you get closer to her and one more thing that your habit of masturbation is only help you to keep relax try to reduce it for future. Don't think that it is bad its just a time when you feel its requirement but now you are free from your anxiety and depression so keep yourself out from this habit also. Stay positive.

Panic Attacks: Solutions

Panic Attacks: Solutions

What is a panic attack?

Panic attack is a sudden onset of intense fear, or terror that occurs without apparent cause. Physical symptoms may include shortness of breath, palpitations or accelerated heart rate, chest pain or discomfort. Psychological symptoms may include a suffocating sensation or a sense of unease and lack of touch with reality. Once you have recognized the symptoms as a panic attack, here are a few techniques you can try:

  • Shift your focus:

Try focusing on a neutral object or person. Try focusing on a colour which relaxes you and focus on it surrounding you. Now try focusing on a silly word or something that makes you laugh. Notice how your focus shifts and how your body responds.

  • Imagine the positive:

Replace a negative state with a more positive one. Imagine a time when you felt confident, safe or calm. Imagine the sounds, tastes, views and feelings of that moment. Now submerge in that moment till your body relaxes.

  • Use these grounding techniques:

Look around you and identify:

  • 5 things you see

  • 4 things you feel

  • 3 things you hear

  • 2 things you smell

  • 1 thing you taste

Deep breathing:

Breathe in for 4 seconds then exhale all the way out. Now breathe in for 6 seconds, then exhale all the way out. Now breathe in for 8 seconds, then exhale all the way. Feel even the smallest muscles relaxing and continue breathing slowly.

Dear lybrate user...Scientifically anxiety leads to weight gain and not weight loss. Anxiety or any kind of stress leads to elevation of blood cortisol and this hormone is responsible to increase weight particularly in the waist region of the body. What I perceive in your case is that you are not able to gain weight and this makes you feel anxious in social situations. Anxiety is a normal phenomenon and is essential to survive and take appropriate actions once situations demands, but it is the excess than the situation appropriate anxiety that is harmful and needs to be targeted. Neurobiologically excess of anxiety or stress leads to increase in the hormone cortisol and having high cortisol is not good for our body systems. High cortisol leads to high blood sugar level and in long rul may cause Diabetes Mellitus, Heart Attacks, Stroke and paralysis, Hypertension and many more. So managing stress in life is very essential for being healthy. Learning Stress Management in life will definitely help you. Be in touch for learning more stuff. Take care
