I always feel alone depressed? How can I feel somehow better meanwhile my exams are close.

Ph. D - Psychology
Psychologist,
I always feel alone depressed? How can I feel somehow better meanwhile my exams are close.
If you are feeling worthlessness, sadness and lack of hope than you may be suffering from depression. It is a debilitating condition that can prevent you from enjoying your life. Although it may be difficult to enjoy previous feeling of happiness. You can take control of your depression by increasing social support, changing your thinking and by increasing your physical health. These are the method to overcome it. 1. Talk to a psychologist /psychiatrist/therapist a psychologist or a therapist will be able to help you work through the issues you are going through at this time. He or she will also educate you about your depression and will further guide you the right line of action to be taken. 2. Spend time with positive people social support is crucial to getting out of a depression and can be very helpful for you to cope with stress full life. Support from positive people can also help to reduce negative thoughts that lead to depression. Please find those people in your life who make a positive impact on your daily functioning. Your friends, family members or co-members should be encouraging and you should enjoy their company. Please go out and do small small things with them [ like listening music, watching movies, walking, reading etc.]. Please create distance with people you know cause you anxiety or who are not supportive. Spending time with them will surely worsen your condition and make it harder to feel enthusiastic about recovery. Plan a short vacation with positive people. 3. Physical contact hug a friend hold hands play with your pet or dog 4. Always think positive and realistically negative thoughts are trademark of depression. This means you get struck thinking the same negative thoughts over and over again. Write down all the bad negative thoughts you have and create a positive thought for each negative thought you wrote down. For example I am ugly, please write I am unique and beautiful. I dont need any approval. 5. Compliment yourself for small small things. 6. Please avoid alcohol, cigarettes or any kind of substance abuse.

You have to get mind control and before sleep time, you do meditaion and yoga. Or read books and listen to music. If not controlled, you may need tablets.

I have a body pain what can i do?

MD - Psychiatry, MBBS
Psychiatrist,
I have a body pain what can i do?
Body pain is a common symptom after excessive manual labour or exercise (due to collection of lactic acid) or in case of some infection. If you are experiencing it due to exercise or work then take rest, drink enough water and massage your body. Massaging may remove the collected lactic acid from muscles and may relieve pain. If there is other symptoms also like fever, cough, sneezing, headache, vomiting, loose motion, pain abdomen then one must visit a doctor for detailed check up.

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. Please post a private question to me and I will help you with "effective learning" techniques. Avocados, Beetroots, Blueberries, Broccoli. Celery, Coconut Oil, Dark Chocolate etc are good for improving concentration. Take care.

I was not like this before, I hate myself. I have anxiety, has recommended "Tolaz 10 md" I took for 6 months now. I'm tired all day. Test I have done: Brain MRI scan - which was with extreme difficulty because I was unable to bear the sound of the scan machine in my ears and head, EEG, Blood work tablets I have taken: pacitane - which worked that time, now triggers panic attack if I take it. Tolaz 10 md - puts me to sleep, I'm tired all day, taken for 6 months/ have spent most of my savings, now dependent I'am allergic to amoxicillin and sulphur drugs.

Hi, I can understand your worry and also feel the severity of the problem. At 1st for anxiety, tolaz 10 is not the treatment and not even pacitane. Anxiety needs to be explored in detail. The agony of the tests you have undergone is understandable. I can help you out with this. Please take an online consultation on my profile. Thank you.

Nothing to worry about, it happens sometimes as your muscles are stretched. Just apply warm mustard oil over stretched part and do moderate workout. The stiffness will go down slowly in one to two days.

Having pain all over my body . Currently having pain in my legs from knee to feet. Ankles hurt a lot while walking.

Physiotherapist, Noida
Having pain all over my body . Currently having pain in my legs from knee to feet. Ankles hurt a lot while walking.
Advice. Avoid sitting cross legged. Avoid squatting- quadriceps exercises- lie straight, make a towel role and put it under the knee, press the keen against the role, hold it for 20 secs. Repeat 20 times twice a day. This will help relieve some pain. Core strengthening exercise- straight leg raised with toes turned outward, repeat 10 times, twice a day. Hams stretching- lie straight, take the leg up, pull the feet towards yourself, with a elastic tube or normal belt. Repeat 10 times, twice a day. Sports taping- stretch the tape from both ends and apply on the affected area contrast fomentation (hot and cold). Ankle stretch calves get a custom made insole. Hams stretching. Sports taping. Hot fomentation.

I'm a 19 years old medical student. . I met a guy in my college who was senior to me by 2 yrs. We became best friends. We enjoyed many moments together. He used to give me a lot of importance. We even became physically intimate for 4-5 times. It was okay for me as I thought he loves me , as I love him. Last week when I proposed him, he clearly rejected my proposal saying there is someone else in his life. From that day, he cut all the connection with me. Later he said he doesn't want to keep any connection with me. I'm in deep love with him .I didn't want to lose him ever. As I have already lost him, I can't accept this. I'm in severe mental depression. I can't eat, I can't sleep, I can't study .I'm feeling like crying all the time. I can't share the feeling with anyone. But my final exams are starting within 7 days. I don't know what to do. I can't concentrate in studies. Please help me out. you can prescribe any medicine if you think it may be helpful. Please help me out.

Like this same problem one girl medico student comes to me. She is final year in medicine. In study time it happens. Love and sex is common in medical colleges. Take it easy. He wants to you for the purpose of sex. He enjoyed sex later leaved. Then you also take this like that. Do not think this matter again. Exams are crucial. Better to concentrate on studies. My patient recovered very soon and now she concentrated on studies like that you also recover very soon. Next time be careful about boys. Do not give any chance of sex. Make a very good friendly relations and do not go to sex. Ok what is happened is over. Now exams better to concentrate. If possible please share your personal feelings with your close friends. Do not be alone. Feel always comfortable. Be enjoy every movement of life. Do not think and do not waste time. All the best. My best wishes.

14 Tips to Quit Smoking

Masters of Philosphy, Master of Science, Bachelor of Sciences
Psychologist, Kolkata

1. Find your reason

To get motivated, you need a powerful, personal reason to quit. It may be to protect your family from secondhand smoke. Or lower your chance of getting lung cancer, heart disease, or other conditions. Or to look and feel younger. Choose a reason that is strong enough to outweigh the urge to light up.

2. Prepare before you go “cold turkey”

There’s more to it than just tossing your cigarettes out. Smoking is an addiction. The brain is hooked on nicotine. Without it, you’ll go through withdrawal. Line up support in advance. Ask your doctor about all the methods than will help, such as quit-smoking classes and apps, counseling, medication, and hypnosis. You’ll be ready for the day you choose to quit. 

3. Consider nicotine-replacement therapy

When you stop smoking, nicotine withdrawal may give you headaches, affect your mood, or sap your energy. The craving for “just one drag” is tough. Nicotine-replacement therapy can curb these urges. Studies show that nicotine gum, lozenges, and patches improve your chances of success when you’re also in a quit-smoking program. 

4. Learn about prescription pills

Medicines can curb cravings and may also make smoking less satisfying if you do pick up a cigarette. Other drugs can ease withdrawal symptoms, such as depression or problems with concentration.

5. Lean on your loved ones

Tell your friends, family, and other people you’re close to that you’re trying to quit. They can encourage you to keep going, especially when you’re tempted to light up. You can also join a support group or talk to a counselor. “behavioral therapy” is a type of counseling that helps you identify and stick to quit-smoking strategies. Even a few sessions may help. 

6. Give yourself a break

One reason people smoke is that the nicotine helps them relax. Once you quit, you’ll need new ways to unwind. There are many options. You can exercise to blow off steam, tune in to your favorite music, connect with friends, treat yourself to a massage, or make time for a hobby. Try to avoid stressful situations during the first few weeks after you stop smoking.

7. Avoid alcohol and other triggers

When you drink, it’s harder to stick to your no-smoking goal. So try to limit alcohol when you first quit. Likewise, if you often smoke when you drink coffee, switch to tea for a few weeks. If you usually smoke after meals, find something else to do instead, like brushing your teeth, taking a walk, texting a friend, or chewing gum.

8. Clean house

Once you’ve smoked your last cigarette, toss all of your ashtrays and lighters. Wash any clothes that smell like smoke, and clean your carpets, draperies, and upholstery. Use air fresheners to get rid of that familiar scent. If you smoked in your car, clean it out, too. You don’t want to see or smell anything that reminds you of smoking.

Use air fresheners to get rid of that familiar scent. If you smoked in your car, clean it out, too. You don’t want to see or smell anything that reminds you of smoking.
13. Get moving

Being active can curb nicotine cravings and ease some withdrawal symptoms. When you want to reach for a cigarette, put on your inline skates or jogging shoes instead. Even mild exercise helps, such as walking your dog or pulling weeds in the garden. The calories you burn will also ward off weight gain as you quit smoking.

14. Eat fruits and veggies

Don’t try to diet while you give up cigarettes. Too much deprivation can easily backfire. Instead, keep things simple and try to eat more fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and lean protein. These are good for your whole body.

15. Choose your reward

In addition to all the health benefits, one of the perks of giving up cigarettes is all the money you will save. There are online calculators that figure out how much richer you will be. Reward yourself by spending part of it on something fun.

16. Remember that time is on your side

As soon as you quit, you start to get immediate health benefits. After only 20 minutes, your heart rate goes back to normal. Within a day, your blood’s carbon monoxide level also falls back into place. In just 2-3 weeks, you will start to lower your odds of having a heart attack. In the long run, you will also lower your chance of getting lung cancer and other cancers.

Hello! I m student my problem is related toward my studies I m unable to memories my subject which result towards failure.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Yes, this may be true because of your age. I suspect that you have just gone through a spurt in the production of the male sex hormone, which would have affected you in three ways quite unknown to you. First, there would have been a sexual agenda that it will kick off, secondly, there would have been aggressiveness and rebelliousness, and thirdly, you would have suffered from acne and pimple problems. This is the effect of the hormone that has a duration of almost two years and you will have no control over it. But if you have a good value system you will tide over this phase without significant damage. The hormonal imbalances may not only impact your memory because of the chemical but also bring along 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 you and the family go for counseling too.

Do alcohol, drug abuse or masturbation kill brain cells? Can dead brain cells recover?
Dead brain cells will not recover. Alcohol and drugs, when overused, can cause brain cell damage. When a person drinks till he is sloshed, for example, 10000 brain cells can be damaged forever. Masturbation is not known to cause any brain cell damage.

6 Ways Your Siblings Make You Who You Are

6 Ways Your Siblings Make You Who You Are

Siblings are most definitely, the best thing to have ever happened to anyone. We fight, we laugh, we play and we defend. No matter, whether you are the best buddies or you cannot even stand being in the same room, you two (or three or four!) share an inseparable bond, which will last for a lifetime. Siblings are surely in for the long haul, while friends and colleagues may just come and go. But do our sibs really influence us?

  • The weight issues: Obesity has been known to run in generations and families, but there have been studies which show that siblings have an influence, especially when we talk of the waistline. Researches; conducted from a 2014 based study at Duke University from the Sanford School of Public Policy show that if the older sibling is obese, the chances of the younger one, being the same increase fivefold. This is regardless of the fact that the parents are obese or not.
  • Character talk: Though there is little evidence supporting the theory of birth order affecting personality, there sure is enough to support that siblings do shape the same for each other. Siblings do develop separate identities for themselves and in the same run, affect and shape the personality and characteristics as well as the behavior of the other, to a major extent. For instance, a person would make more of an effort to become an outgoing person, if his/ her sibling is shy and quiet. In case of families with three kids, this is more likely to happen among siblings of the same gender instead of the opposite genders.
  • The first teachers: Navigating social situations are what we first learn from our siblings. A daily practice in understanding foreign minds and getting an insight of the outer world is what we first get from our siblings. Strong bonds between two kids at home have shown better and more successful connections with peers at school.
  • Saving marriages is their task: Being a part of a bigger family reduces the chance of divorce due to more chances of being accustomed to adjustment. Ohio State University concluded in a 2013 study that every sibling reduces divorce risk by 2%.
  • Depression Deal: Squabbling of siblings is as natural as the rain. Yet, the reasons for the fight can have major health implications. Quarrelling about issues like fairness and equality can lead to experiencing higher levels of depression. The same has been concluded by a 2012 study of the University of Missouri. Fighting over personal space can lead to development of low self-esteem and anxiety.
  • But they are happiness boosters too: You know that already! Having siblings is in itself a joyful experience.

My daughter has been married for 4 months but is unable to consummate her marriage as she says she just can' t get the feeling for her husband despite trying and now the marriage is on the brink of break down, kindly guide

Hypnotherapist, DCS, BSIC, Advanced Trainee of Transactional Analysis, Advanced Skills in Counselling
Psychologist,
You all need to sit down together and talk about the reasons for getting get married to her husband. If she is not feeling sexually attracted to her husband, then it' s a loss for both of them as sex is an important need for all humans. If they are interested, then they can visit a sexologist and counsellor, who can help them understand how to consummate their marriage and if they are having any differences between each other then they can be sorted out with the help of a counsellor. Nowadays, however, some couples are ready to live together without consummating their marriage with each other. Yet they have sexual partners outside of their marriage. If your daughter and her husband are open to this solution then it can be worked out this way. They can also remain as friends or companions within the marriage without having sexual relationship with anyone at all. A marriage need not break over this issue.

Dear lybrate-user. I think you are having anxiety disorder. Anxiety disorders are a category of mental disorders characterized by feelings of anxiety and fear, where anxiety is a worry about future events and fear is a reaction to current events. When a person fears about something now (which may or may not happen in the future) and if he do it repeatedly, it is called anxiety disorder. These fear provoking feelings are called anxiety and it may cause variety of physical symptoms, such as a racing heart, restlessness, helplessness and shakiness. There are a number of anxiety disorders: including generalized anxiety disorder, a specific phobia, social anxiety disorder, separation anxiety disorder, agoraphobia, and panic disorder among others. While each has its own characteristics and symptoms, they all include symptoms of anxiety. I need to know more about your anxiety so that I will be able to diagnose it properly and provide you counseling and psychotherapy to overcome and manage your anxiety. Take care.
