It is too early to comment on all these things unless we track the improvements in your status. If the bleed in the brain is resolving without any irreversible damage then you will certainly be able to get back to your routines soon.

How to solve the problem of depression and dyslexia. These two diseases are connected.

BASM, MD, MS (Counseling & Psychotherapy), MSc - Psychology, Certificate in Clinical psychology of children and Young People, Certificate in Psychological First Aid, Certificate in Positive Psychology
Psychologist, Palakkad
Dear, dyslexia, also known as reading disorder, is a learning disability characterized by trouble with reading despite normal intelligence. Depression is a state of low mood and aversion to activity that can affect a person's thoughts, behavior, feelings and sense of well-being. Dyslexia and depression are not related. Clinical depression is usually treated with a combination of psychiatric medicines, psychotherapy, life style changes, meditation and exercise. I hope you are undergoing psychiatric treatment, otherwise, please approach a psychiatrist.

Hello, she is not pregnant and her next menses should have occurred only by 8-10 th march, but as they have not even till now, she may get an ultrasound pelvis done to check for endometrial lining and also to rule out pregnancy and if negative then can opt for a progesterone withdrawal.

You are not dying but you are killing yourself emotionally by obsessing about HIV. There is a gestation period of nearly 6 months when it can be identified as to whether you have HIV or its disease state called AIDS. In the meantime, keep a healthy regimen of exercise, good eating habits, and adequate rest. If you obsess to this extent, you could actually give yourself a lot of symptoms by autosuggestion. Go meet a counselor and talk about all your concerns and get some professional help to stop this obsession.

Hi sir I am always getting angry and I cannot sleep. And I forget every thing and my age is 17 .

Master of Clinical Psychology, Post Graduate Diploma in Psychological Counselling
Psychologist, Pune
Whenever you get angry, detach yourself from that situation and practice deep breathing, feel that your anger is moving out from your mind. Share with your closed ones. Identify your thoughts which make you angry. Replace those with positivity. With the help of counselling, you will learn to relax yourself and to instruct your subconscious mind with positive thoughts.

Alcohol problem addicted to alcohol prescribe a medicine for deaddiction please and various ways for quit alcohol.

BHMS
Homeopath,
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.

Hi lybrate-user, it is to say that falling of hair is mostly genetically determined where no one can do anything. But some local scalp conditions are also responsible for falling of hairs. Like seborrhoea, psoriasis etc. Only falling of hair cannot be a cause of depression in a man's life. There are many part of human life which are more important than hair. You try to concentrate to'up bring' those beautiful nature and qualities of your life which are more valuable in day to day life than your hair style.

Hi , It is important to know how you feel. Sometimes loneliness, emptiness etc will also accompany. It is necessary to know whether you are able to have harmony with others and peace with yourself. Talk to a counselor to identify any suppressed feelings.

I am very short tempered and prone to shouting. Male. 21 yrs.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist,
Shouting is a form of expression but if it is inappropriate you may cause more harm than good. You need to identify why you get so angry and throw this fit around as an expression. If this is a recent phenomenon, then it will be easy to identify what caused that disturbance and it can be sorted out. If it is from your childhood and you have suffered this reaction for a long time, then you will need to go back into childhood and find out what went wrong to make you so upset. Your parents will be able to help locate the cause. You can then go to a counselor and learn about anger management, which is not to control your anger but to learn to express it in appropriate ways. You must also examine yourself to see if you act angry whenever you are scared. This then means that you have chosen to escalate anger over your fear for some reason: it may have to do with feeling more powerful with anger than with fear or you may have received more attention by acting angry. Work on these issues and come out of this behavior through some counseling.

For constipation I will suggest you to eat food with high fiber content like green leafy vegetables and can also eat bananas at bedtime as it is effective as a laxative and if necessary take 10 ml of syp cremaffin at night.
