Good Morning ~ Social anxiety disorder or social phobia is very common and I believe that you will self blame due to the feeling of guilt that accompanies this kind of social phobia. Blaming oneself is also a cardinal symptom of depression, and it is easily treated with medications. I am sure you will benefit from booking a paid appointment online and thus be able to help yourself with the right kind of treatment. I hope this helps for the initial contact and look forward to our private and confidential interaction online.

Try to change your lifestyle and dietary habits which cause all these depression and anxiety. What drs do not tell you is that the feel good hormones are made in the gut where both healthy and unhealthy bacteria live so you have to make your gut happy to make your life happy. All these medicines you are taking will cause serious side effects which neuither your Dr. is going to tell and you would not have asked also You cannot stop medicine suddenly .It will create more problems. The dose should be slowly reduced with the help of your doctor after showing positive changes made by complete make over of lifestyle and diet Get the right tests done, get the right interpretation of the tests take the right supplementation which will never cause side effects feed healthy bacteria into your gut and keep your gut healthy and happy. Do not trust your drs completely. You have to do your home work at your end. Ask the question to both your Dr. and yourself why you got this problem .You will get the answer and work on those trigger factors and you will be able to get off the medicines slowly and safely. The eyes do not see what the mind does not know .This applies to both yourself and your doctor. A detailed history and specific blood work needed .What needs to be tested is not what the Dr. wants but what you need and want because you know your body better than your doctor for that to happen your Dr. should have knowledge of nutrition and diet which ninety percent of drs do not have and they treat all dietary diseases with medication instead of education. .Everyone whether healthy or not needs supplements to prevent getting all the lifestyle diseases. These do not cause any side effects. Except good health, good energy and good sleep. Feeling well is healing well. Take a consult after sharing name and working number. Get educated and never medicated Remember you cannot fix your health without fixing your diet. You have to treat the root cause and not the symptoms.

I am a student. i need to sharp my mind because i forgot the things very often. what should i do? please advice

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

Your age is a major factor in this problem of memory loss and what seems like a weak mind. I suspect that the adolescent issues with regard to hormones may be affecting your ability to concentrate and remember. When the hormones play up, it lasts for a period of close to two years and during that time you could be influenced by three signs directly impacted by the chemical: you will tend to become aggressive and rebellious, you will become sexually active, and you will have acne and pimple problems. The hormonal imbalances may not only impact your memory because of the chemical but also bring some distractions that come with it. But you may work on the following even if the hormones kick in: Daily exercise of at least half an hour is a must. Even if you go to a gym, ask for aerobic and/or callisthenic exercises with whatever else you are doing. A healthy body harbors a healthy mind. With regard to memory, it is very important that your brain and body is ideally rested to be able to recall whatever is required, rather comfortably. Puzzles pose problems to the brain that help it to use new pathways and neurons, which give the brain considerable exercise. It taxes the left brain to use logic to solve the myriad possibilities which other activities do not stimulate. Crosswords are excellent for vocabulary learning and use. Jigsaws and Rubik cube stimulate different permutations to finally settle on the most likely one. Picture completion and anagrams help approach problem solving from several angles. Do Sudoku, and memory co-relation activities and skills. Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber (whole grains, fruits and vegetables), nuts, avocado, eat dark chocolate, consume less of fat and use olive oil instead, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. You need to check out if you are stronger visual or auditory. The visual is a better mode than the auditory. However, if you combine the two modes, you will get the best concentration. Have a special place of learning, which should be well lit, with soft painted walls, well-ventilated, with no distractions. When you get bored, study by writing. If you repeat learning at least five to seven times, you will apparently remember for a longer time. Sit comfortably but do not slouch. The reading material should be of a fairly large print. Study at small intervals of about 40 minutes and then take a break or change the subject. Short-term memory is a faculty of the left brain, and long-term memory is a feature of the right brain. When people are stressed, they tend to favor the right brain and abandon the left brain, where short-term memory resides. So, it is really very simple: deal with the stress and activate left brain functions. Here are a few suggestions to activate left brain function: 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. There are some memory enhancing techniques and study methods that your teacher will be able to guide you with. If your home life is full of distractions and stress, it is likely to affect your memory, adversely. In that case, I suggest that the family goes for counseling too. The following foods do help too: Blueberries, walnuts, turmeric, Spinach, tomatoes, broccoli, acorn squash, green tea, oily fish, boiled egg, turkey, apples, oatmeal, leafy greens, lentils, pumpkin seeds, avocado, cinnamon, thyme, sunflower seeds, and red wine. Avoid junk food.

I can not concentrate in my study, to get better concentration what should I do? Pls help.

Psychologist, Faridabad
Don't panic the more you work out your brain the better you process and remember information. Try to do different activities what makes you happy. Learn to play any instrument, make art, drawing, pottery. Learn dance and another language which you don't know. Try to do brain exercise. Every single activity give your brain extra challenge and want extra effort from you. This will give you a healthy brain which can do anything. And for concentration point a dot on a blank white sheet pointed it on a wall just straight to your eyes while you sit on a chair. And you can try any other concentration exercise daily.
