Causes and symptoms of Delayed Speech

It might happen that you may not find your child, at twelve months to two years of age, at the same level as their peers in verbal communication. You think it's just a developmental problem they are facing and put off seeking professional advice; an intrinsically wrong step to take, because your child might be suffering from Speech Delay.
Delayed speech, or alalia, can be roughly defined as a delay in the development and use of the biological mechanisms that produce speech.
The symptoms of speech delay are roughly categorized into age related groups, generally beginning at the age of 12 months and continuing through the early adolescence, and they are:
1. Age-12 months
a. It is indeed a symptom if your child cannot point at objects or cannot manage gestures, such as waving good-bye.
b. Another symptom is that if your child does not prefer to communicate verbally as much as his/her peers.
2. Age-15-18 months
a. If your child is unable to pronounce familiar syllables or simply cannot call you even by this time, it's a worrying symptom.
b. You find your child unable to, or simply not reciprocating to 'no', 'hello', 'hi', 'bye'.
c. If your child is unable to extend his/her vocabulary up to 15 words by fifteen months, then it's a symptom.
3. Age-2-4 years
a. You find your child unable to spontaneously produce speech and words.
b. Another worrying symptom is if your child is lacking consonant sounds at the beginning and end of words while speaking.
c. If you still find your child unable to form simple sentences and words, then it is indeed a troubling symptom, confirming the disorder.
The causes for the speech delay disorder are:
1. A primary cause can be physical disruption in parts of the mouth such lips or palate, which may be deformed.
2. Another serious cause can be an oral-motor dysfunction which is the disruption in the creation of the specific area of the brain which deals with speech and communication.
3. The disorder can also be attributed to impairment in the development of the child's intellectual, receptive and expressive abilities.
4. There can also be psychological causes involving school environment and peer relationships which might lead to disruption of speech patterns and reluctance in speech expression and development. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.

I am 26 years old and I am addicted to alcohol from 2-3 years and I tried a lot to quit but I failed. Please give me some type of solution.

Dear lybrate user, you may need a bit of willpower to stop your habit of drinking alcohol permanently. You could easily abstain yourself from alcohol during the initial 2-3 days. But after few days of abstaining from alcohol you will feel a strong craving to drink just one peg of alcohol whenever you face any tense situation. Here lies your real test. You cannot satisfy yourself with just only one peg. You will need a lot of willpower to resist that craving & face any tense situation without the help of alcohol. Moreover you may feel a slight shivering of your hands after abstaining from alcohol for more than 15 days. However, you can take homoeopathic mother tincture acid sulph q, 30 drops, thrice daily, after meals, in a cup of water. This medicine will help to reduce your craving for alcohol.

Both are equally bad with negative effects on psyche. Stop sleeping tabs gradually as rebound effects can be worse than initial symptoms, every negative emotion surfaces. May be you do not need any medicines. Take a glass of warm milk with honey at bed time, watch soothing programmes on tv and listen to music, read good books. If day has been spent well while on the job, there is no reason that a person will require medicines to get sleep. Yoga and relaxation exercises do help reduce the stress & the stress in your case is that you do not get enough sleep. Remember some leaders at 65 + sleep only for 5-6 hours and work non stop for 18 hours a day.

Hello,
I used to be shy going to public places till last year but it now turned into irritation when I enter crowded ...
Hi Mr. Lybrate-user, yes, it seems you have agoraphobia. Agoraphobia is a mental health condition characterized by irrational fears about being in public places. The condition causes afflicted individuals to avoid public places and remain trapped in their homes. Coping with your own agoraphobia involves facing up to the irrationality of the fearful thoughts it produces, and seeking help from others. While it may be very unpleasant, you should do your best to regularly expose yourself to the situations which trigger your fear and panic. In modern life, exposure to public places is inevitable, and the more you resist, the worse the consequences will be for your life. Don't go it alone. Having a trusted friend or family member with you when you are on the bus, at the store, or in any other triggering situation can be a great help. A therapist can help you explore" exposure therapy" in which you intentionally seek out situations which trigger your fear response. For an agoraphobe, this means voluntarily exposing yourself to crowds, public places, or wide open space. This must be done gradually, and with great care, so that the fear and panic do not become overwhelming, putting you or others in danger. It is best to consult with your therapist before attempting exposure therapy. Now, if you find yourself panicking in a public place, try to focus on controlling your breath instead of fixating on fearful or anxious thoughts. Breathing slowly and deeply will help naturally calm your body's physiological response to fear, reducing its severity. Close your eyes, count slowly to 10, and focus on breathing in through the mouth, and out through the nose. Visualize calming environments and images, and remind yourself that you are in no danger, and that the episode will pass lastly, challenge irrational thoughts. Many of the anxious and fearful thoughts associated with agoraphobia are irrational, meaning that they are not based in fact. Understanding this, you can work to correct your thoughts by challenging them with evidence. When you are in a situation which triggers your agoraphobia, ask yourself these questions: do facts or evidence support my fearful thinking, or are they irrational? if a frightening or dangerous situation occurs, what steps could I take to remain safe? what would I say to another agoraphobe to comfort them in this situation? have I felt this way before while in a similar situation, and, if so, were my fears warranted? consult with a psychologist sir, thats the best way to benefit and overcome the fear. Consult with me for same. A all the best.

What can I do to quit smoking?

Psychiatrist

Why is it so hard to quit smoking? You have probably heard this before: "Smoking is so bad for you. Why do you do it?" People start smoking for different reasons. They might think it will help calm their nerves, make them look more mature, or maybe at the time it just seemed sort of adventurous. Looking back, it was not the best choice. Many people really want to quit, but why is quitting so hard? It is hard to quit smoking because the nicotine in cigarettes, cigars, and other tobacco products gets you hooked and keeps you hooked. Most people try as many as three times to quit before they are able to do so. Look at smoking cessation as a process instead of a one-time event. That way, if you do slip, you can focus on what you can do differently to prevent future slips and relapse. Don’t give up—you will get there. You have probably heard a lot about how smoking is harmful, but here are some positive things you can look forward to when you do quit. If you quit, you will: Prolong your life Improve your health Feel healthier (Smoking can cause coughing, poor athletic ability, and sore throats.) Look better (Smoking can cause face wrinkles, stained teeth, and dull skin.) Improve your sense of taste and smell Save money (Most smokers spend about $90 a month on cigarettes.) Smoking increases complications for those who have diabetes. While smoking can increase your chances of getting diabetes, it can also make managing diabetes more difficult for those who already have it. Smoking-related complications of diabetes could include retinopathy (eye disease), heart disease, stroke, vascular disease, kidney disease, nerve damage, and/or foot problems. What options do people have? Some people try quitting on their own before they go to their doctor, but your doctor can be very helpful. He or she may offer tips and suggest medicines, both prescription and over-the-counter, to help you "kick the habit." It is also important to tell your doctor what types of products you might use or are using to quit smoking. The doctor can make sure that suggested products will not interact with other medicines you are already taking. Remember, there is no "magic bullet" when it comes to quitting smoking. Quitting requires persistent effort. Over-the-Counter Medicines Nicotine-based medicines Over-the-counter medicines that contain nicotine can be very helpful in fighting off cravings. These products will not remove all cravings, but you can use them instead of smoking to reduce your nicotine intake gradually and ease off of its addictive effects. When you give your body a steady dose of nicotine all the time and then stop suddenly, you will have more side effects (withdrawal symptoms) that usually make quitting a lot harder. Withdrawal symptoms include irritability, headache, and the craving to smoke. Go slow and lower the dose gradually with nicotine-based products until you feel you are able to resist the cravings on your own. You will still have cravings, but they will be weaker. It is very important to have some form of social support when you decide to quit, no matter if you use products or not. Support can come from your doctor, counselor, support group, close friend, or a family member. When considering a nicotine-based product to help you quit, be sure to tell your doctor about any conditions you might have, especially: Asthma or breathing problems Heart or blood vessel disease High blood pressure Stomach ulcer Diabetes mellitus Kidney disease Liver disease Overactive thyroid Pheochromocytoma (PCC) Over-the-counter treatments are typically used for up to 12 weeks as part of a smoking cessation program. Additional things to consider when taking nicotine-based medicines Do not smoke while you are using the nicotine-based medicines. You could risk overdosing on nicotine. Tell your doctor about any medicines you are taking or any allergies you have. Do not use the nicotine-based medicines if you are breastfeeding, are pregnant, or think you might be pregnant. Keep this and all medicines out of the reach of children and pets. Common brand names of the nicotine patch, gum, and lozenge include: Nicorelief® (gum) Nicorette® (gum) NicoDerm® CQ® (patch) Commit® (lozenge) Transdermal nicotine patch The patch is worn directly on the skin. Nicotine passes through the skin into your bloodstream. Some brands have patches with different strengths so you can gradually reduce your dosage. Nicotine patches are available without a prescription. If you are not sure what kind of patch to use, ask your doctor. Always follow the instructions on the box, but here are some things to remember when using the nicotine patch: Patches are supplied in child-resistant pouches; save the pouch for disposal of the patch. Find a clean, dry part of the skin to apply it. Somewhere on your upper arm or torso usually works best. Try to find an area that has little hair and is without scars, cuts, burns, or rashes. Right before applying the patch, wash your hands and the skin area with plain soap and water and dry completely. Avoid using any soap, lotion, hand cream, tanning lotion or oil, bath oil or insect repellent that contains aloe, lanolin or glycerin as a moisturizer since these agents can leave a moisturizing film on your skin, which can potentially interfere with the adherence of the patch. When you have finished applying or removing the patch, wash your hands with water only. Do not try to adjust the dosage by cutting the patch into sections. Leave the patch on, even while bathing or swimming. If it falls off, do not try to re-apply it. Use a new one Remove the patch according to the instructions on the box (usually after 16 to 24 hours). Dispose by folding sticky ends of the patch together and putting in pouch. When applying a new patch, choose a different place than before. Do not use the patch in the same place for at least a week. Do not leave the patch on for longer than directed. Remove the patch if you are going to do rigorous exercise. This might cause more nicotine to pass into your bloodstream. If you are unsure how to use the product, be sure to ask your doctor or pharmacist to explain. Remove the patch if you are having a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan. Nicotine patches contain aluminum. If you have vivid dreams or other sleep disturbances, try removing the patch at bedtime and applying a new one in the morning. Common side effects of the nicotine patch: Increased appetite Mild headache Irritation at the site of the patch, including itching, burning, or redness There are other common or more serious side effects. Please read the information that comes with the product carefully, and be sure to contact your doctor if you have any questions. Nicotine gum Nicotine gum, like the patch, is a systemic way to receive nicotine. This means that the nicotine in the gum passes from the lining of your mouth right into your bloodstream. Like the patch, you will decrease the dosage during the recommended time (usually 12 weeks or sooner) if you are able to resist cravings on your own. Nicotine gum is sold without a prescription. Always follow the instructions on the box, but here are some things to remember when using nicotine gum: Use nicotine gum only when you feel the urge to smoke. Slowly chew the gum until you begin to taste it or feel a tingling sensation in your mouth. Then stop chewing and park it between your cheek and gum. This helps release the nicotine. When the taste or tingling is almost gone, repeat these two steps for 30 minutes. Use only one piece at a time. Do not drink beverages (e.g., soft drinks, tea, coffee, and fruit juices) or eat food 15 minutes before or while chewing the gum. Gradually decrease the number of pieces of gum you chew per day, until you reach three to six pieces per day. Some people can do this in less than 12 weeks. Do not chew more than twenty-four pieces in 1 day. Try to have the nicotine gum handy at all times. You might try hard candy or using regular gum, if the nicotine gum is not available. Nicotine gum can be difficult to use if you have dentures. Common side effects of nicotine gum: Belching (burping), gas, or heartburn Increased appetite Mild headache Watery mouth Jaw or muscle pain or fatigue Sore mouth or throat Nausea Hiccups There are other common or more serious side effects. Please read the information that comes with the product carefully and be sure to contact your doctor if you have any questions. Nicotine lozenge A nicotine lozenge, like the patch and gum, is a systemic way to receive nicotine. This means that the nicotine in the lozenge passes from the lining of your mouth right into your bloodstream. Always follow the instructions on the box, but here are a few things to remember when using the nicotine lozenges: Place the lozenge in your mouth; wait until it dissolves completely; and move it around from time to time without chewing. It takes around 20 to 30 minutes to dissolve. Do not take more than one lozenge at a time or continuously use one lozenge after the other, this can cause hiccups, heartburn, or nausea. Do not eat or drink 15 minutes prior to, during, or after use. Do not use more than five lozenges in 6 hours or more than twenty lozenges in 24 hours. Prescription Medicines Nicotine nasal spray Nicotine that can help you stop smoking also comes in the form of a nasal spray, available only by prescription. Like the patch and the gum, the amount taken is gradually decreased during a period of 12 weeks. It is to be used, like the gum and the patch, as part of a program that also includes support, education, and counseling. Nicotrol NS® is one brand of nicotine nasal spray. Always follow the instructions on the prescription label. Here are some other things to remember when using nicotine nasal spray: Blow your nose prior to use. You may gradually reduce your dose of nasal spray by skipping doses or using only half the usual amount. Writing down the time you take the nasal spray and how much you take might be very useful when reducing your dose. Common side effects of nicotine nasal spray: Back pain Constipation Coughing Indigestion or nausea Runny nose Sneezing Watery eyes Headache A burning feeling in the back of the throat or nose The nicotine nasal spray is not recommended for people with reactive airway disorders such as asthma. In addition, caution is urged in patients with chronic nasal disorders. There are other common or more serious side effects. Please read the information that comes with the product carefully and be sure to contact your doctor if you have any questions. Nicotine inhalant A nicotine inhalant—available only by prescription—used for up to 6 months (initial treatment period up to 12 weeks followed by gradual reduction period of up to 12 weeks) can be part of a smoking cessation program. When the inhaler is used, nicotine passes from the lining of the mouth and throat (not the lungs) into the bloodstream. Like other nicotine products, you will decrease the dosage during the recommended time (usually several weeks) or until you are able to resist cravings on your own. Nicotrol Inhaler® is one brand name of nicotine inhalant. Always follow the instructions on the box, but here are some things to remember when using a nicotine inhalant: Store the inhaler in a dry area at room temperature not to exceed 77° F or 25° C. Write down the time you take the inhalant and how much you take. This might be very useful when reducing your dose. The normal first dose is between six and sixteen cartridges per day. Common side effects of nicotine inhalants: Coughing Indigestion Mouth and throat irritation Stuffy nose or runny nose There are other common or more serious side effects. Please read the information that comes with the product carefully and be sure to contact your doctor if you have any questions. Bupropion Bupropion is more commonly seen under the brand names of Zyban® or Wellbutrin®. Zyban is specifically indicated for smoking cessation. It is not a nicotine-based medicine; it is an antidepressant that is only available by prescription. It is prescribed along with counseling and support to aid in smoking cessation. Bupropion might also be used to treat major depressive disorders. It usually takes 2 weeks for bupropion to take effect, so plan to quit smoking 2 weeks after beginning the treatment. Before considering bupropion, be sure to inform your physician if you have a history of seizure disorder, bulimia, or anorexia nervosa. Bupropion comes in tablets that are to be swallowed whole, not crushed, divided, or altered in any other way. Individual prescription strengths might vary, so if you are taking bupropion, be sure to follow the directions on the label. Ask your doctor or pharmacist any questions you have about how to take it, when to take it, any potential side effects, and the duration of treatment. Common side effects of bupropion: Dry mouth Sweating Insomnia Rash Headache Dizziness Anxiety Restlessness Irritability Indigestion Decreased appetite There are other common or more serious side effects. Please read the Medication Guide that comes with the product carefully and be sure to contact your doctor if you have any questions. Do not take bupropion if you have taken a monoamine oxidase inhibitor (MAOI) within the last 14 days. Monoamine oxidase inhibitors are used to treat depression. Some examples include: tranylcypromine (Parnate®), phenelzine (Nardil®), and isocarboxazid (Marplan®). There are several products that might interact with bupropion, so be sure to tell your doctor about any over-the-counter and/or prescription medicines, as well as any herbal supplements you are taking. While taking bupropion, immediately report any psychological changes (e.g., new onset depression) to your doctor. Varenicline (Chantix®) Varenicline, also known by the brand name Chantix, is a prescription medication that does not contain nicotine. This medicine helps to reduce the reinforcing effects of nicotine and can minimize the withdrawal effects from nicotine. It is recommended to set a quit date 1 week after initiation of varenicline therapy. Typically, this medication is taken for a minimum of 12 weeks accompanied by smoking cessation counseling. If you have stopped smoking, another 12 weeks of varenicline might be prescribed. If you have not stopped smoking after the first 12 weeks, stop taking this medication and return to your doctor for advice. Varenicline should be taken with food and a full glass (8 ounces) of water. Varenicline can interact with over-the-counter and prescription medicines especially insulin, blood thinners, and asthma medications as well as with certain herbal supplements; therefore, it would be important to inform your physician of your entire medication regimen. Contact your doctor immediately if you experience any psychological changes (e.g., new onset depression) while taking varenicline. Common side effects of varenicline: Nausea, which may dissipate over time Headache Insomnia There are other common or more serious side effects. Please read the Medication Guide that comes with the product carefully and be sure to contact your doctor if you have any questions. How could research benefit smokers who want to quit? Researchers are testing a vaccine that could make quitting a lot less difficult. This type of treatment could potentially be used in a program, along with bupropion (Zyban) and counseling, to significantly reduce withdrawal symptoms.

To be a safe and predictable person for those around you at work and at home, it is essential that you are able to maintain your composure when you feel like your'buttons' are being pushed. This strength will help you to achieve your goals in business as well as your goals for your personal relationships. 1. Share negative emotions only in person or on the phone. E-mails, answering machine messages, and notes are too impersonal for the delicate nature of negative words. What feels like a bomb on paper may feel like a feather when delivered in person. 2. Pepper your responses with the phrase" I understand" this phrase will support your goals when the tension is high and you need to find common ground to form compromises or agreements with the other party. 3. Take notice when you feel threatened by what someone is saying to you. Resist the temptation to defend yourself or to" shut down" the other person's communication. It will take this kind of discipline to become an open, trusting communicator. 4. Practice making requests of others when you are angry. It is often much more useful to make a request than to share your anger. For example, if the babysitter is driving you crazy by leaving dirty dishes in the sink, it is better to make a request of them than to let your anger leak out in other ways such as by becoming more distant. 5. Try repeating the exact words that someone is saying to you when they are in a lot of emotional pain or when you disagree with them completely. This mirroring technique can keep both the speaker and the listener'can notered' in a difficult conversation, especially when the attitude of the person doing the mirroring is to gain understanding of a different point of view.

So I think it adds extra pressure to perform well in tests. But in today' s test I wrote nothing correctly(i will get 0 out of 30). What should I do to focus on the exams which are yet to come. I have 4 exams next week too. Is it due to exam stress or anything else? please give suggestions.

Dear, you must be able to understand concentration, attention span, recollection and distraction. If you are able to watch a movie for two hours continuously, if you are able to play a game for an hour, then you do not have any concentration problems. You can't be attentive towards your studies because you are not interested in it. You are able to watch movie and play game because you are interested in it. Human cannot be attentive towards anything for more than 10 minutes. Then you should study in such a way that your attention is continued and make the subjects are interesting to you. Effective learning techniques should help you. Recollection depends on anxiety, stress and other physical and circumstantial factors. Distractions while studying are plentiful. You should be able to overcome distractions or avoid distractions. Please understand the above. Change your study style and attitude accordingly. Take care.

7 Confidence-Killing Words and Phrases to Ban From Your Vocabulary

Confidence is a state where you know and understand yourself enough to put forth your thoughts and actions without being bothered or shot down by people around you. Yet, there are various situations that create a less than stellar performance in the confidence game. Many times, we end up behaving in a way that points to low confidence and self-esteem. While body language plays a huge role here, words and phrases also matter. So what are the confidence killing words and phrases that you need to ban from your life? take a look at this list!

Just: this single word can undermine your intentions and make things seem less casual than they actually are. Sometimes, we get intimidated by the person or the situation and end up down playing things by saying, I was just thinking about it like this.
I am no expert: when you start a sentence by tearing yourself down, you are putting yourself up for rejection.
What if: while a'what if' may be a good idea in particularly trying situations where you are faced with a person who may be in panic or anxiety, this is not a good phrase to use at work and in life, in general. It shows that you have not thought of the option properly.
I cannot: this single phrase can demolish relationships, both personal and professional within a matter of seconds. Nothing says you do not own your domain more than this phrase. When you say you can't or you cannot, you are effectively giving up and handing over control to someone else which is a downward spiral as far as your confidence goes.
Like, so: unless you are starring in a chick flick, we would recommend that you stop using this fluffy and light weight phase'that is like, so cool. Yes, it may be cool, but saying it is cool, will more than suffice. When you use phrases like these, you are basically telling the world that you do not take yourself seriously enough to talk like a serious person.
Exclamations: using exclamations at the end of thanks or any other word, can show that you were not confident of getting the task done. Be grateful, but do not make it sound like relief.
Sense'am I making sense' or nonsense are words that you need to send away from your vocabulary, as they denote a low sense of confidence and also show that you do not have confidence in the people around you. So get into a more confident mode by removing these seven words and phrases from your life.

you may attempt the following and see how it works: I know you have probably tried a de-addiction center but he should not have been released if he was not ready. So in this attempt, he may be taken to another de-addiction center that is stricter and will also have a follow-up treatment and AA meetings for him to compulsorily attend. Whatever I suggest, kindly involve or share it with mom or elder family members to make it effective and suffer the least backlashes, if any. Ideally, your brother should want to give up alcohol himself to begin with. If not, it is going to be an uphill task and to the most part impossible. However, you should not be in want of trying. If he is unwilling to seek help, he needs to be admitted to a rehabilitation center for at least 6 months. If not, there are centers who will come and pick him up when he is drunk, when his resistance will be ineffective. This will require mom's or his wife's permission and written consent. After your brother returns from therapy, there will be a lot of follow-ups, both in the house and in his daily activities that must be meticulously adhered to. There is a medicine called Disulfiram, which only the doctor can prescribe, and it is very powerful that even if he attempts to drink a small quantity, he can have serious reactions that may sometimes entail hospitalization. You have to monitor his intake of the medicine and keep a close watch on him. He also has to go for regular counseling for at least three years! Apart from his health, he will also affect the family and all his children will carry genetic factors for alcoholism. If he is into business or working, he will soon not be able to continue and he will go into financial ruin. He will lose all his friends and become ostracized by his society. He will lose his dignity, self-esteem, self-confidence, and become a misfit. He will also lose his sexual capacity, liver function, heart function, kidney etc. These are all symptoms of 'Hitting Rock Bottom' Now it is difficult to give up because he has become addicted to alcohol for some time and has a lot to do. The consumption of Antabuse has to be carefully monitored to see that he not only consumes the medication but is also avoiding alcohol. Ultimately, it is his will power and the support that he receives from the medical fraternity and his close and dear ones. He must also learn to substitute and deal with the oral need, a rigid value system, the script issue, and of course take a look at all the genetic factors to plan a strategy not to get into what is called ‘cross addictions’ i.e. Another form of addiction that may appear alright but is in fact as bad as the primary addiction. The center or hospital and the counselor will advise and guide him on several measures and precautions he will need to take to stay with his resolve. Even after the rehabilitation he must attend AA meetings and continue this support for a long time. The family will also need to attend some sessions and go for Al-anon meetings for their co-dependency issues. He cannot be treated in isolation because the family has gotten used to his drinking and have made some unhealthy adaptations to somehow cope. The children, including you and whoever else is there, will also have to attend meetings to work out their issues because of the father’s habit. In fact, they are all suffering from the Adult Children Of Alcoholics Syndrome (ACOAs), which in effect means that you are genetically predisposed to alcoholism or can have cross addiction problems and that you will have similar traits of the abusing alcoholic but in a milder form. There are special support groups for them all over the world. Should they touch or indulge in alcohol or any addictive substances or behaviors, they could also become full-fledged addicts themselves. Now you should not give up on him but neither should you harass him. Be continuously after him and in the end, you will succeed. His medical condition may warrant a very strict course of action.

Sudden anger outbursts could be a sign of something benign like poor stress management or something serious like depression. As a safety measure, visit a psychiatrist to rule out any mental illness. Most mental illnesses are curable. Beating up a helpless child in anger is very detrimental to the child's psychology and your relationship with him. Learn anger management. A lot of tips are available online. Get away from your child when you are angry. Take sips of cold water to calm down. Tell yourself out loud to calm down until you feel you are in control. Lashing out on your baby is setting a very bad example for him. He will mirror your behavior. Get help asap!
