I want to quit smoking and I want to be normal as before smoking and I was smoking 5 cigarette per day. Any problems I will face in future.

Dear lybrate-user, it is good that you wants to stop smoking, try this method we are destroying our health by smoking normal human takes oxygen into lungs 12 -15 times per minute (12 - 15 breaths) lungs mixes oxygen in blood and it purifies our blood, by smoking we are mixing not only oxygen adding and mixing bad elements like nicotine etc. In oxygen, that spoils our blood and our body all organs like lungs, heart, kidney etc. In our body. How to quit: by willingness and willpower" where there is a will there is a way" reduce one by one day by day. If you need any support have counseling help by in-person or audio/video please give us feedback after trying.

I am 47 years old. From last 1 year thought of suicide disturbing me continuously May be feeling of failure of life. I am thinking. Compel me. Pleases help me. What to do?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You do not state any reason for this strange request. To have a death wish at any time is itself not normal. You can indeed look back a year ago to identify where exactly this stimulus arose.Your situation must be extraordinary for such desperation at this age. Kindly seek a psychiatrist’s help without any delay, and take some responsible family member with you. Life is extremely precious, and everyone is turning the world upside down to survive and stretch life to the maximum. Please visit a geriatric ward and you will understand what I am saying. I feel something is bothering you that may appear impossible but that is exactly the fallacy. Every problem has a solution and only by speaking with someone else will you come to know the different alternatives to your situation. People who are severely depressed tend to think suicidal thoughts, generally. Depression is treatable although it may not seem so to the depressed mind. Also, if you are religiously/spiritually-oriented, you will never entertain thoughts of destroying life. Suicide does not solve problems, facing life square-on does. You may be feeling hopeless under the circumstances but that will be so if you are withdrawn and do not share your problem with others. Please seek help from a professional immediately. Alternatively, reach out to a religious person for some spiritual intervention.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. In these 10 days you are supposed to review and try recalling whatever you studied for the last 9 or 10 months. Don't stress yourself. The more you stress yourself the more you will be in trouble. Study 6 to 8 hours maximum and get at least 7 hours sleep daily. Take care.

General Physician,

If you feel depressed, it's best to do something about it — depression doesn't just go away on its own. In addition to getting help from a doctor or therapist, here are 5 things you can do to feel better. And if these are not useful you need antidepressants 1.Exercise. Take a 15- to 30-minute brisk walk every day — or dance, jog, or bike if you prefer. People who are depressed may not feel much like being active. In addition to getting aerobic exercise, some yoga poses can help relieve feelings of depression. Two other aspects of yoga — breathing exercises and meditation — can also help people with depression feel better. 2.Nurture yourself with good nutrition. Depression can affect appetite. One person may not feel like eating at all, but another might overeat. Proper nutrition can influence a person's mood and energy. So eat plenty of fruits and vegetables and get regular meals (even if you don't feel hungry, try to eat something light, like a piece of fruit, to keep you going). 3.Identify troubles, but don't dwell on them. Try to identify any situations that have contributed to your depression. When you know what's got you feeling blue and why, talk about it with a caring friend. Talking is a way to release the feelings and to receive some understanding. 4. Express yourself. With depression, a person's creativity and sense of fun may seem blocked. Exercise your imagination (painting, drawing, doodling, sewing, writing, dancing, composing music, etc.) and you not only get those creative juices flowing, you also loosen up some positive emotions. Take time to play with a friend or a pet, or do something fun for yourself. Find something to laugh about — a funny movie, perhaps. Laughter helps lighten your mood. 5. Try to notice good things. Depression affects a person's thoughts, making everything seem dismal, negative, and hopeless. If depression has you noticing only the negative, make an effort to notice the good things in life. Try to notice one thing, then try to think of one more. Consider your strengths, gifts, or blessings. Most of all, don't forget to be patient with yourself. Depression takes time to heal. If you are happy with these answers please click on "useful” link so that I can know my efforts are not wasted. If you want more clarifications or prescription for medicines consult me on this site to ask me directly and not in open questions session It's not easy to say exactly what causes depression and anxiety – it's different for everyone. Sometimes a difficult time in you or your mates' life can set off depression or anxiety, sometimes it's caused by a combination of things that has built up over time and sometimes, there's just no obvious cause at all.

My mind is little weak. In doing mental wrk, n concentration power is really bad. N forgetting the things vry easy. N I use to b vry sad. Thinking tht y my mind is lik ths. Tell me wht to do.

Dear lybrate-user, welcome to lybrate. Memory and mind power depends mainly on three aspects. Understanding, storage and recollection. To understand what you are studying, you must be able to be attentive or concentrate. Concentration is possible when you are interested in that subject. Creative way of learning can help you concentrate and understand easily. When you are able to understand and concentrate, it is stored within your brain. If you read more and more it will be store in long term memory. Third part is retrieval. Whenever you want to retrive what you learned and stored, your brain gets the request, searches the database and retrieves the information for you. The retrieval may prove to be difficult if you are anxious, stressed, worried or tired physically or mentally. Retrieval is more easy when you are relaxed and healthy. Brain needs nutrients to keep itself sharp. Fruits, vegetables and dry fruits provide much needed nutrients for your brain. Include at least one fruit in your daily diet. Physical exercises, entertainment, hobbies, relaxation, memory games like sudoku etc help keep your memory sharp and active. Take care.

Eat well and sleep well. Be a strict vegetarian, drink cow's milk in night about three hours after dinner on alternate days (about thrice a week ). For sleep, Everyone knows that sleep is very important for maintaining a good physical and mental health. However, the duration of your sleep is just as important as the way in which you sleep. Your sleep position can influence your health, help in keeping your skin look young, and improve your digestive health. Furthermore, sleeping on the left side of your body can even save your life. If you are currently sleeping in another position, keep reading to find out why you should start sleeping on your left side right now. There are several sleeping positions – your front, your back, your left side, and your right side – and they all affect your health. Sleeping on the back can be particularly dangerous for people with sleep apnea or asthma, because it can cause breathing difficulties. Sleeping on the right side is likely to worsen digestion problems, whereas sleeping on the left side may improve digestive symptoms.

This can be ideally worked out with a therapist who will see the need to explore your developmental history to source the origins. In the meantime, it is very prudent to understand that sex has many more dimensions than the mere act of physical copulation. There is, besides the physical aspect, the emotional, intellectual, social and even the spiritual dimension to sex. In this context we refer to it as sexuality which has to it femininity and masculinity. In fact all of us have both these aspects to our sexuality, and if a male has developed more of the femininity in him, he is likely to display effeminate traits and may even favor female companions and relations. So a good education of these different aspects and dimensions of sex and sexuality will play a significant role in helping you to determine your orientation and favor the one that is most desirable to you. A sex educationist can help you a lot to understand the male and female natures in us called Anima and Animus. If this is not the case, then your orientation may have to be revised.

Hello you can consult a physiotherapist personally. They will teach you few wrist strengthening exercises and perform mobilisation if needed. Meanwhile you can do cold and hot water immersion for your wrist like 3 mins in hot n one min in cold with sponge ball squeezing it in water. Make sure you start with hot water and end with hot water till temprature of both water is equal. Do use wrist band. It could be because of overuse.

That might be frustrating for you. You might not be able to live a life of your choice and not accomplished what you wanted to. However, allopathic treatment can only offer symptomatic relief with some side effects of the medicines but no long term resolution. Alternative treatment like homeopathy and ayurveda offer gentle and holistic treatment which is safer and remove the problem from its roots. Counselling is another such intervention which has helped many individuals suffering from anxiety and sleep issues by teaching them practical tips and techniques to sleep naturally and also learn how to manage stress and tension better without losing your equilibrium. You will be able to modify the unhealthy and irrational thoughts due to which you feel anxious and replace them with healthy and rational thoughts and behaviours which will make you feel confident and liberated from within to take on tasks which caused anxiety before. Exercise every day and do deep breathing and pranaymas for calming down and feel functional.

Dear Doctor, I'm 18 years old. I'm quite sad these days. I have mood swings. Sometimes i cry and laugh at the same time while I'm alone. I even started to hate everything around me. I love to listen to the music, playing guitar and painting. But these days. I don't want to do any of these. I just want to alone. My friends told me that I'm negative these days. I don't know what to do. I don't want to be negative. Please help.

Don't neglect this condition. It could be the indication of a more severe problem. Visit a counselor and let her/him assess your situation to recommend a visit to a psychiatrist, if necessary. This is the late adolescent stage of your development and is the last chance to resolve any lurking issues that have remained dormant till now. If you had some disturbances earlier, it is an indication that it is really serious. Although it is looking for a resolution, you could enter adulthood with a permanent negative feature that will torment you for a long time in life, if you do not sort it now. Don?t feel ashamed but seek help soon because in adolescence it is easier, if you cooperate. Also make a complete history of the family, and your life since you were conceived. Any history of inherited traits up to your grandparents in terms of mental diseases, mental retardation, alcoholism, suicide, depression etc. Will help to trace genetic contributions. Ideally don?t be alone for long times and be engaged in interesting activities. Socialize a lot but don?t put too much pressure on yourself. Certainly do not increase stress. Proper exercise, diet and sleep will help tremendously.

I am 28 year old women. I feel highly stressed because of my relationship. I have a boy friend who I wish to marry. He is 4 years younger to me. For the last 3.5 years we were working together and everything was going fine between us but now he started working in an MNC at a very low salary. He was always looking for space away from as I am dominating. I always doubt me because whenever we go out I always catch him looking at women and then we fight. Since he started working I doubt he might find some other girl girl and will ditch me for her. I asked him not to join the job he is currently working in as I am afraid to loose him but his family wanted to do this job as his brother in law referred him on this position, his family was afraid that if he will not join then his brother in law would never help him again finding a job for him. Since he started working I haven't spoken to him because I am furious. I am unable to sleep and I don't know what to do. I think I am going to into depression. Please help.

I think that you are the problem in this relationship with regard to how it is going, which is not good by the sound of it. Perhaps you being older makes you want to dominate like a mother: this may eventually lead to smothering and he may seek to move away from you. You may also tend to do this because of your own insecurities, especially the fear of his ditching you. If he looks at other girls, that is not a crime or any indication of his infidelity. You are so dominating that you wanted him to stay on with the job with you because of your fear of losing him! You need to show more maturity and let him choose his jobs and make his decisions unless you know of good reasons that they were bad for him: not because they could bad for you. You cannot force him into this relationship, if he does not want it. So let him be, and if he does not come back to you, then you know he did not love you and you must accept that however difficult it is for you. The reasons could be many but it is not worth studying unless you want to learn something for your future. Part of the problem could be the age difference, where ideally he should have been older than you. If he is meant for you anyway, he will come back. But don’t wait for too long and before you get into another relationship, do some work on your insecurities. I don't understand why you are taking Betaloc. If it is for a heart problem, then it is of great concern that you have that at this age. Your insecurities may be rather stressful.

Very fact that you have a problem for 5 years and nothing serious has happened. This can't be something as you fear. Hiding the disease hides the cure. Modern medicine has developed so much in last 5 years that you should not mis trust it. The cause of headache can be anything like migraine, stress headache, tension headache, unhealthy life style, lack of rest or sleep, Galucoma in Eye pressure, vision defects, sinus, BP etc. etc. All can be treated but must be diagnosed first. First see a Consultant Physician for proper medical examination, related investigations, cross reference to Eye Specialist, ENT Specialist and if no relief finally to Neuro physician. Have courage and hope but your approach should be correct, swift and scientific . Best Wishes
