This time is very crucial for both of you,which will decide your future married life.and if you will think negatively about your husband then you will not be able to make strong bond with your husband. Please don't ask always questions it will spoil your married life.By doing this you are making distance in your relation and your husband is going away from you,infact you are pushing him towards your thoughts in reality.But its also important that you should clarify your doubts.Talk with your husband openly and clarify your doubts but don't think again and again on this topic .make yourself busy as much as you can ,make some good friend,share your feelings with someone.take care.

There is something stressing you to cause this extent of forgetfulness. You must meet with a counselor and discuss and deal with this stress. It could be something temporary and with talking about it the matter may disappear and your memory will certainly return. You may additionally choose to do some of the recommendations mentioned below: 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. 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 is a new exercise called Super Brain Yoga, which is done by holding the right earlobe with your left thumb and index finger, and the left earlobe with your right hand’s thumb and index finger. In this position, you must squat down and rise up and do this for five minutes every day. 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 sugar and junk food. You may also include these noted foods that are good for your brain health: Brain-Friendly Foods MIND stands for Mediterranean-DASH Intervention for Neurodegenerative Delay. But the MIND approach “specifically includes foods and nutrients that medical literature and data show to be good for the brain, such as berries,” says Martha Clare Morris, ScD, director of nutrition and nutritional epidemiology at Rush University Medical Center. You eat things from these 10 food groups: •Green leafy vegetables (like spinach and salad greens): At least six servings a week •Other vegetables: At least one a day •Nuts: Five servings a week •Berries: Two or more servings a week •Beans: At least three servings a week •Whole grains: Three or more servings a day •Fish: Once a week •Poultry (like chicken or turkey): Two times a week •Olive oil: Use it as your main cooking oil. •Wine: One glass a day You avoid: •Red meat: Less than four servings a week •Butter and margarine: Less than a tablespoon daily •Cheese: Less than one serving a week •Pastries and sweets: Less than five servings a week •Fried or fast food: Less than one serving a week.

I have always been a shy kid (somewhat unsteady emotionally: they have more control over me than I have over them). I often preferred keep things inside, sometimes knowingly and sometimes unknowingly. Then a few years back, I failed my higher secondary exams, due to which I went into severe depression. I became even more isolated than before. And eventually, old wounds started to crop up, I ended up feeling even more hopeless (partly because my self esteem was close to zero, and partly because of my over-thinking nature. On top of everything, I faced more complications (a few failed friendships, and some relationships). There were not many with whom I could share my secrets with. And when I did, it made no difference, I felt nothing at all. Nowadays I have started to do a bit of part time work, which has helped me tremendously, mainly in regards with having a higher level of self esteem, being emotionally healthier and not feeling too nervous while surrounded by people who are practically strangers. But after suffering for quite some time, I have some distinct scars with me, which I am listing now: A) My memory power has dwindled down a lot. I was an above average student, now I am the perfect example of" outta sight, outta mind" B) I often misread words, I often mistake one word to be another, whenever I'm in a hurry. C) I often fail to notice that I have missed a word when writing something, if I have said it correctly to myself in my head. D) I feel bipolar-ish at times, I go from emotion to emotion quite quickly, without intending to do so, angry to sad to numb to unnaturally joyful. And also, there are times when I want to be sad (addicted. Etc. So what should I do?

Dear lybrate-user. Welcome to lybrate. Your problem is gad. General anxiety disorder treatment consists of cognitive behavioral therapy, life style changes, relaxation therapy and meditation. Once you learn how to manage your anxiety yourself with the help of the above treatment methods, you will be cured. The process is a bit lengthy and could take any period between one year to 2 years according to the depth of the anxiety problem and the circumstances at which the patient lives. Keep the period of treatment in mind, prepare yourself to take up the treatment and consult a psychologist online or in person. Take care.

I have a problem. I'm not able to speak with girls seeing their eyes. Please help me to get rid of this habit

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You lack confidence around girls. You probably become too self-conscious, and for some reason underrate yourself. The greatest problem I notice with some men with this type of problem is the discomfort of talking to girls, assuming that there is something sexual. This is a perception unfortunately in our society. It is not normal. You are a nice tall, strapping man, and girls will love to be in your company, without any secret or sexual agenda. So, dispel that idea out of your head, you will feel a lot more at ease talking to them looking into their eyes. Don?t encourage any other ideas in your head but that I am talking to a girl and she is my sister who needs my respect. Incidentally, the eye-to-eye contact does have a little intimidation to it because it feels like the person can see deep into you and you are all exposed. This is fortunately a total fallacy and the belief can make you uncomfortable. In my profession I have to look directly into the eyes of my counselors and I wish I can find out all of that person's secrets! It is just not possible. So face the girl and talk to her. In fact, many girls will mistakenly feel that you are shady, perhaps hiding something unpleasant, or have ulterior purposes. Would you want them to believe in all those lies! On the other hand, if you look them into the eye, they will feel that they can trust you, and that you are a safe person. What a contrast!

Hello lybrate-user, you can try these- 1. Getting restful and uninterrupted night-time sleep (7-8 hours) 2. Don't over sleep (more than 8 hours) 3. Wear a sunscreen under the eyes when stepping out in the sun. 4. Use a pair of sunglasses and a concealer, if required. 5. Get iron and protein rich diet. 6. If blood test indicates iron deficiency take iron suppliments with the advise of your general physician. 7. Do destressing exercises like mindfulness meditation or yoga. I hope this helps you.

Dear, stress is simply a reaction to a stimulus that disturbs our physical or mental equilibrium. In other words, it's an omnipresent part of life. A stressful event can trigger the? fight-or-flight? response, causing hormones such as adrenaline and cortisol to surge through the body. A little bit of stress, known as? acute stress? can be exciting? it keeps us active and alert. But long-term, or? chronic stress? can have detrimental effects on health. You may not be able to control the stressors in your world, but you can alter your reaction to them. I need to know, what are the causes with which you are stressed? once you know the reason, you will be able to adjust with it with some tips and tricks. Please let me know the details. Take care.

Hi there, Sertraline is better drug as far as social anxiety is concerned. However, whatever you're doing, do it with your treating psychiatrist's consultation. Also, discuss with your therapist if he can teach you mindful meditation and offer forms of behavioural therapies. Good luck.

Many anti depressants help in recovery of mood quickly, as you said memory might not be improved, unless treated specifically for that. Get another psychiatrist opinion, your prescription might meed revision to improve memory, it is very easy though.

Smoking has many adverse effect on different system in your body. Congratulations that you are thinking about quitting it. Now you need to figure out the best strategy that works for you. Following information may help you. One of the few habits which takes very systematic approach and needs lot of support and individualized strategies to quit successfully. Data such as - since how long are you smoking and how many cigarettes a day you consume are important information. Also have you tried quitting it earlier? how successful were you? and what are your personal reasons to stop smoking? all these are also important part of your success strategy. Broadly speaking your reasons for not smoking work as your motivator. The stronger the reasons behind not smoking the higher the motivation and thus higher the chances for you to be successful. Also your body will have a withdrawal symptoms and it is very important to come up with strategies and solid plan to counter these withdrawal symptoms. These strategies should be tailor-maid as per your need and situation. If you consider these and many other individualized approach and if you have a solid support throughout your journey.

Sir when I am working on computer I miss the alphabet for example at 2, 4 min I forget that which alphabet is called a. Same things happen with numbers. My expression are change immediately. And I also can't sleep long time. I wake up 4 5 time on night bt I m feeling so tired. I am thinking so much without any connection and limitations. Is this symptoms for depression. What I do ?which kind of doctor I contact.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
It could be depression if several other symptoms connect. Go to a counselor first and let that person determine if you need to meet with a psychiatrist for medication. If this is a recent phenomenon, then it could be treated early with the prognosis really good. Please do take your parents with you to meet with the counselor and carry all the information about you, from prenatal days till date, including up to your grandparents. If there was any telling event either in your life or that of your family history, then there is a genetic concern that has to be factored in too. The missing numbers and alphabets may not be serious all by itself, but could be of much concern if it is linked to any disturbed condition in you. You can nip it in the bud, if acted upon early.

If you are trying to quit alcohol, you should stick to beers and wines. True or False. Take this quiz to know now!

1. Heavy drinkers have smaller brain volumes

  1. True
  2. False

Answer - True

Studies have shown that drinking too much alcohol can lead to the death of brain cells in certain parts of the brain such as the parietal lobe. It also causes electrical dysfunction in the brain by disturbing the brain's neurotransmitters.

2. Which of the following is an effect of alcohol withdrawal??

  1. Nausea
  2. Anxiety Disorder
  3. Shakiness and restlessness
  4. All of the above

Answer - All of the above

3. An alcoholic needs to hit rock bottom before being able to quit and recover

  1. True
  2. False

Answer - False

Alcoholism has various degrees and not every alcoholic hits rock bottom before recovering. In any case, "rock bottom" is a subjective concept and does not mean the same thing for every individual. If you want to quit drinking, you should begin right away and not wait till you reach a low point in your life.

4. If you are trying to quit alcohol, you should stick to beers and wines

  1. Distilling your own liquor
  2. Avoiding pubs and bars

It is called drug dependent. In compulsory condition only. We go medicine after condition is normal then we stopped. But you are not do that. Drug dosage may increased day by day. It has so many side effects. So better to stop the medicine slowly. Do hard work, do physical exercises, read you well, watch t v, more time before internet. Then your eyes need rest. Then automatically sleep comes. Do not go bed with sleep intention go to bed when you get sleep tendency. You need psychotherapy, relaxation therapy and behaviour therapy better to consult a very good psychologist in bangalore. In bangalore so many experts are there. Please consult them. Please follow their suggestions. Best wishes.
