I am Feeling to much stress already after sleeping 7 hr at night.

PhD (Psychology), MSc Psychology, MS
Psychologist,
Dear , you are sleeping for 7 hours and that itself is an indication that you are not mentally stressed. You could be physically stressed and that is a good sign. You should not confuse between physical and mental stress. I think two or three counseling sessions and psycho therapy techniques should solve your problem. Let me know if you are willing to undergo counseling sessions and tailor made psycho therapy through mobile. Take care.

May be you are overloaded with work or information, stressed or preoccupied with some problems. first take a break to relax yourself, take nutritious food to maintain your alertness and energy levels. Then try to organize the information based of the priority with relation to time and space, and create a sequence or reminders for how it should be done. try this and if it does not work consult a psychologist

milk secretion can come due to various reasons even in a virgin lady. Your suspicion based on this alone is not warranted. But explain to her that ur not a medical person, as u rightly did apologize and bring her back. Find the reason for the excessive milk and get her treated. All the best

Dear Roshan. Welcome to lybrate. You do not have to worry about your penis size. Even an erect penis size of 2 inches can satisfy any girl across the world. This happens because the woman pleasure nerve endings are available only up to first two inches in their vagina. Don't worry. Take care.

Dear I don't think you need to get alarmed about this. You are just 20. There is no way you get problems related amnesia. Busy people do forget things. People with lot of work do forget many things. Executives employ personal assitants mainly because they are busy. Therefore, there is nothing to worry. If you want to address your education issue, there are many techniques to remember things. Effective learning methods will help you. To keep your memory intact, you should keep yourself active and agile. Polish your brain frequently. Take care.

HI Lybrate user As a parent, at first you should try to divert her attention and spend quality time and give proper love and affection, tell her some real stories of great persons. Indulge her in outdoor games. Provide her some play opportunities that support different kinds of learning styles such as blocks- will develop your child's creative expression and problem solving skills. Ask about what she is learning in school. Offer her some positive reinforcement that will inspire her to keep learning or good behavior. Thanks.

Please suggest some medicine to flush out Nicotine from the body as I am a chain smoker and wanted to quit it. Tried to quit it for some time however unable to continue it.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
No such medicines and you have to stop smoking and do breathing exercise .Best age to stop smoking is before 40 ,In fact do not start all Only by using strong will power and avoiding all situations where you feel like smoking, chewing tobacco or drinking or using drugs/ weed, avoiding friends who smoke and diverting mind by reading or chewing a gum, like NICORETTE and taking a walk when you crave for a smoke can all help. You can chew Nicorette gum which is nicotine replacement. There are medicines available. Which can be prescribed if asked personally Cigarette smoking is a leading preventable cause of mortality. It kills more than 60 lakh people worldwide every year. More than 50% of regular smokers would invariably die from tobacco-related illnesses which includes heart attack, cancer or asthmatic lung diseases. Best age to stop smoking is before 40 31st May is “World No Tobacco Day” Quitting smoking before the age of 40 is associated with larger decline in premature death than stopping it at a later date. Best age therefore to stop smoking is before 40. However, stopping smoking even after the age of 50 is still associated with lower risk of death as compared to those who continue to smoke. Even in smokers aged 80 years or more, quitting smoking appears to reduce some mortality.

Hi. I'm a 21 year old female from Kolkata. I have a family and lots of friends. But I feel really underappreciated. There is a lot of talks outside about hiw we shouldn't expect and be selfless and everything. But it all seems very superficial to me. Few years back i was like a goat. I never complained to anyone about anything i felt. I truly used to believe that if I keep on striving for recognition in front of my parents , if i be there for my friends , everything will be ok. Off late i have absorbed the fact that they weren't my true friends, i have stopped compromising for those 'friends' and instead made acquaintances with new people. But unfortunately i cannot do that with my family. I feel really tied down. There is a lot of complicated situation here like immature and biased mother and an angry and biased father . Being the middle child, i feel like my family attaches no calue to me whatsoever. My father has always has an unashamed inclination towards my sister and my mother towards my brother. I have always don't everything in my power to please them, to impress them, to get them to think about me. But it never happens. I feel like I'm draining my energies. And it's affecting my behaviour pattern. I'm very easily irritated and I hate to be at home . I feel like getting lost in oblivion because I feel worthless and I feel like I don't belong to anyone. I was betrayed in friendship by someone i called my bff. And that incident though 2 years old Stoll feels like a knife cutting through me. I need help . I want to straighten my thoughts out and focus on what's important in my life , I have major exams in a matter of two months. I feel really helpless, stuck in a spiral that's heading lower and lower.

Dear lybrate user. Welcome to lybrate. I can understand. Loosing someone near and dear from a deep relationship like love affair is called grief and depression related to grief is pretty normal. But this sort of depression does not stay for long. This depression gets cleared within a span of some weeks. The best option for you is to undergo counseling and depression related therapy. Take care.

You must go and meet with a counselor immediately and if that person advises that you meet with a doctor you must do so and cooperate to your utmost. Please visit these professionals along with your parents. 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 scorching 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. 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 every day and learn to be contented 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 callisthenic exercises with some form of counting, regularly. Whatever happens please cooperate with the therapy and do not discontinue until the condition is completely resolved.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. Soft voice is never a problem and in fact it is very good and desirable in many occasions in your career and socializing. Soft voice can be modified with the help of special training through speech therapy. I suggest counselling. Take care.

Rather than worrying who is apt to treat anxiety neurosis. It is ideal for you to get the severity of anxiety disorder evaluated, if the symptoms are mild, you can be treated by CBT (Cognitive Behavior Therapy) alone or medications. If the symptoms are moderate a combination of CBT and medicines, if severe medications first and after improvement CBT can be planned. Medications are given only by a psychiatrist as well as diagnosis ruling our medical causes for anxiety is done by a psychiatrist. CBT can be given by psychiatrist or clinical psychologist, who are trained in the procedure. Hope this helps you to decide.

How can I avoid smoking ?

MD - Alternate Medicine, BHMS
Homeopath,
Take sauna bath for 5 days. This is because it helps to release the nicotine along with the perspiration that happens during taking it. So the craving for smoking is reduced. Later, inform me after 2 weeks.

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist,
Hello, aggression is one of the many emotions that a human being come across in his life. Just like happiness, sadness, fear, joy; people feels angry at some point of time too. However when such aggression exceeds beyonds one's coping skills it becomes part of an illness. Excessive anger leads to distress and dysfunctions, mounting for development of a behavioural disorder. Many psychological disturbances can have anger as their characteristic symptoms such as:- depression, anxiety, psychosis, substance abuse, personality disturbances, cognitive disturbances. Besides this medical conditions as well can contribute to excess of aggression. Hence it requires a detailed assessment to reach out for the cause of aggression and hence to plan for its management as per. Management includes medications as well as psychological interventions for strengthening the coping skills. I would suggest you to seek a consultation in private with me, so that we can discuss in detail about your problems and can plan for a management as well.
