Dear lybrate user. I can understand. You are disappointed and feel very low. But, this is the case with many more people across the world. In fact there are many people in your village or town itself who stays away from their family due to many compulsions. This fact in itself is to be motivating. I suggest online counseling. Take care.

I am over feared. When I become feared or anxious my foot and palms will become cold as ice. I likes loneliness. Sometimes I am afraid and sometimes brave of everything. I usually dreams. Maybe all the time, even in sleep. Day dreaming is too a problem. My body does a thing and my mind thinks about something else. One day I was reading something in public (a big article) I read it continuously but my mind was somewhere else. But I finally woke from day dream (without closing eyes. And found out I finished quater of the article.

Hi lybrate-user, Its you and only you who can change the habit and lifestyle and for this you need to take necessary actions. It is important to get yourself busy in productive things and make a schedule to organize your life better. Apart from that I would like you to practice Mindful Breathing The primary goal of mindful breathing is simply a calm, nonjudging awareness, allowing thoughts and feelings to come and go without getting caught up in them. Sit comfortably, with your eyes closed and your spine reasonably straight. Bring your attention to your breathing. Imagine that you have a balloon in your tummy. Every time you breathe in, the balloon inflates. Each time you breathe out, the balloon deflates. Notice the sensations in your abdomen as the balloon inflates and deflates. Your abdomen rising with the in-breath, and falling with the out-breath. Thoughts will come into your mind, and that’s okay, because that’s just what the human mind does. Simply notice those thoughts, then bring your attention back to your breathing. Likewise, you can notice sounds, physical feelings, and emotions, and again, just bring your attention back to your breathing. You don’t have to follow those thoughts or feelings, don’t judge yourself for having them, or analyse them in any way. It’s okay for the thoughts to be there. Just notice those thoughts, and let them drift on by, bringing your attention back to your breathing. Whenever you notice that your attention has drifted off and is becoming caught up in thoughts or feelings, simply note that the attention has drifted, and then gently bring the attention back to your breathing. It's okay and natural for thoughts to enter into your awareness, and for your attention to follow them. No matter how many times this happens, just keep bringing your attention back to your breathing. Consult me for therapy.

Get a complete hemogram, TSH and Vitamin B12 level. If there are any abnormalities here, they will need to be corrected. If they are normal, it is almost certainly related to what is known as registration deficit. This occurs due to mild anxiety related problems. They can be easily treated with medicines such as escitalopram, sertraline or paroxetine. It can be started and kept at low doses only. They have no side effects. Some amount of supervision will be needed from doctor. Take care!

Dear Lybrate user, Welcome to Lybrate. I think you are stressed out. 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. Physical exercise, creative activities, deep breathing, being away from the situation for sometime etc can help you tackle the stress. 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 psycho therapy methods. Please let me know the details. Take care.

Side effects after a particular time for lamotriagene are very rare. But one can not give guarantee that relapse will never occur as mental illness are often recurrent and stress can precipitate second episode.

The reasons that you have cited could be enough for you to not want to get married even though you are romantic. You do need professional help to overcome the emotional disturbance that these events have caused in your life. Surely, if you continue on this path, loneliness will be your companion and slowly dissatisfaction will start seeping into your life. Remember, humans by evolution are social beings and tends to live in communities harmonious to their growth and development. Reach out to a counsellor in your city and take help.

Dear Lybrate user. I can understand. Anger and aggression are emotions. These emotions are triggered when you are frustrated, disappointed, stressed or anxious. Emotions, once triggered, should be vent off. You should learn not to get angry even when there are apt circumstances around. Holistic methods like meditation and breathing exercises should help you. Take care.

Replace smoking with higher taste like" transcendental meditation. When you get higher taste, the lower taste of intoxicants like nicotine would no longer be able to distract you.

Diabetes and insulin at young age is depressing. See some juvenile diabetics and their life style in real life or net groups, you will feel you are not alone. They have achieved so much living with diabetes. You need not achieve like them. But you will not be worried about other's facial expression and feel bad. You can not live alone. The earlier you get adjusted to others expression, the better it is for you. You have to go out and mix up with all sorts of people. Start with known classmates and cousins with whom you are comfortable. Slowly expand to others. Best of luck.

I have been married 4 months back. My husband was good in the beginning, we enjoyed a lot and we had sex regularly. He spends more time chatting with his friends and asks girl friends to send their photos (not nude) and even makes their friends as his. This was from the beginning but I noticed it recently. He hides many things from me. When I knew that he chats and questioned him He started deleting chats. He watches porn videos a lot and says that he is doing his work. He keeps a hand on me while sleeping and engages himself in chatting. He spends a lot money for his family and thinks a lot to buy many thing for me. He even drinks beer and eats non veg. He promised me that he will stop drinking. We have sex now a days only on weekends. He enjoys watching porn videos without me. We are not happy in our relation. I love him a lot and please suggest me something.

I think his true colors are just being revealed. Many of us portray a very good side of ours before marriage and for some time after too. But in time that ‘acting’ will cease and the true nature will emerge. If you are not happy with what he is doing then confront him, and you may do so openly in front of his folks or yours to make it more effective. But how much you can change him is a big question unless he himself wants to change. The reduction in sexual contact shows that he is getting his gratification from the porn and viewing other girls’ photos. If he is eating non-vegetarian and drinking beer that is a matter of choice and unless there is abuse of the substance and loss of control we cannot say that that is bad in itself. You must be more effective in dealing with him otherwise this will become the pattern of the relationship, forever. Then if he is willing you can both go for marital counseling and continue with that person until your matters are resolved. If all this does not produce results, then you must take a call, even if you love him passionately.

Good Morning ~ If your examination scores are better due to your depression being lifted from medications, I would suggest strongly that you do not stop taking the medications as they seem to be helping. You can focus your sexual energies when the time is right, I would appreciate if you can make a list of ideas that you have about sexuality and put them across for me to evaluate so that I can treat you and give you medications accordingly. Sexual urges are common in your age, however you might want to be more socially appropriate and let me remind you that it includes this space, since this is a public forum where doctors like me give answers to questions that are appropriate and relevant.

How I increase my memory. I forget think after sometime.

PhD (Psychology), MSc Psychology, MS
Psychologist,
Dear, memory and mind power consists of understanding, storage and recollection of information you learn. Understanding depends on concentration. The more creative you are on doing tasks or reading, the more you understand. Storage and recollection depends on your understanding and how well you review what you have learned. Repetition and review of material learned and other tasks provides easy recollection. You can improve your concentration and total brain power with the help of green leafy vegetables, exercise, creative activities, number puzzles like sudoku etc. Hard work is the key to learning and recollection. Take care.

Hi it seems you are spending more time worrying about your future and worrying about the lack of sleep rather than trying to work on what you should do now. You also seem to be lacking goals and plans. So better start working on planning what you should do now and how you should spend your available time usefully. This will make even your lack of sleep a boon because it will provide you more time for you to work and complete the tasks which you intend to complete. If you have difficulty in doing this the consult a clinical psychologist in your vicinity.
