You are in some form of stress. Please identify the reason for that stress and work with a counselor to sort that out and your memory will happily return. With regard to memory, it is very important that your brain and body is rested well to be able to recall whatever is required, rather comfortably. So, catch a good 8 hours of sleep every night. 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 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, 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. You may also meet with a counselor to take care of the stress related emotions, and then you will fare better too.

Only medicines cant cure you completely, this is all stress and worries of life. May be issues of sex/love/future/marriage, you may be having insecurities and fear. Just relax. Ask yourself what bothers you? have a positive self-talk, and learn what are those things you don't like. You need to accept your self and move on. You need to take care of your lifestyle and learn to be happy. If you cant do it yourself, meet a life coach/ stress management super-specialist like me. Once you open your heart out, you will feel free and begin to fly in life. I assure you that I can manage this and help u. You may consult me as well.

Hello doctor. I'm 28years old woman. Well I got arranged marriage in 2011. It was ended up in divorce in 2012 due to parental interruption on both sides. Till now really don't have a clear clue why my life ended with divorce. Fine. It's all over now. I got second marriage in 2013 december. It was arranged marriage. Now the problem is there are so many misunderstandings between me and my husband. In one word I can he is not a understandable person. He always shouts at me even if I don't make mistakes. Ex: one day he asked me to go to my mom's home since he went out for office work. After he came back, he started shouting at me saying tat why did you go (using bad words. He beats me often without any reasons. He doesn't save money. He spends all his salary for restaurant food and going out (he says he doesn't like my cooking. He doesn't care for me anything. Abruptly he splits words. He hurts me a lot. Many times I had think tat I should have not accepted for divorce and my first husband is far better. Please suggest me how can I overcome this problems. I have talked to my husband many times privately for not to hurt me. No use though. No kids yet. Physically he involves with me good. No problems in sexual life.

Dear thara, you are living your husband for two years and two years are not at all enough to understand each other. Differences arise because of lack of understanding. You already had spoken to your husband about this. You are doing everything you can to tackle the problem, but your husband is not relenting. I can understand. I need to know more about your husband so as to provide you some tips to manage and change his behavior. Please contact me and provide as many details as possible. I will help you. Don't worry. Take care.

Dear, You must understand the difference between alcohol addiction and abuse. You can definitely quit alcohol in one go. Just stop it and swear not to drink again. Engage yourself in games and other engaging activities during evenings or when you feel the urge. Just a week, your habit should change. There are many other methods, which you can see through internet. The best method is what I suggested. Please try it without fail. Take care.

I am a 35 years old man. I am suffering from pain over the whole body including head, neck, shoulders, arms, palm, back, thighs, calf and ankles. Whenever any part of my body aches I gets stressed and worry for a long time about the same. My blood sugar, lipid profile, uric acid are within normal limits. My doctor has prescribed Epalrica MP once daily after dinner for one month. I have learn that it is used to treat diabetic neuropathy. As my blood sugar is within normal limits is it the right medicine for my condition?

Frankly I don't see any role of Epalrica for you. You are suffering from Anxiety neurosis probably. Instead of worrying, join laughter class, read books, listen to music, go for walk, play sports. You will feel better if you open your mind often to a friend. Take a break, for a holiday and spend time with family and friends without any objective.

Fear is our biggest enemy. Question yourself when you have a fear - ask yourself what worst could happen. Generally, you will realise that your fears have no basis. There maybe situations where your fears maybe real e. G. If I don't study, i'll fail - in such situations work out a strategy so that you can study regularly and overcome that fear. Medical treatment won't help, you require counselling.

Hi lybrate-user, for many men anxiety and pressure to perform is a major contributor to premature ejaculation. Relax and remember that your partner probably cares about more than the timing of your orgasms, and that premature ejaculation doesn't mean you can't still be good in bed. Take climaxing out of your expectations. Instead of viewing intercourse only as a means of achieving orgasm, reframe it as relaxing, pleasurable time with your partner that you'll enjoy regardless of ejaculation. Discuss this new mindset with your partner, so that he or she can stop pressuring you, intentionally or not. If you notice yourself getting too excited, turn your thoughts to something distant, abstract and unsexy, such as math, rush hour traffic or baseball. Only dwell on it long enough to give yourself a short break from arousal, maybe 5 to 10 seconds, then refocus your attention on your partner. Avoid thinking of a topic that is going to make you stressed or cause you to lose your arousal entirely. Edging, or orgasm control, is the practice of maintaining a high level of sexual arousal while delaying ejaculation. It takes practice, but it gets easier over time. Here are two methods recommended by the national institutes of health to stop premature ejaculation: stop-and-start method: have intercourse as usual until you feel yourself coming uncomfortably close to orgasm. Immediately and abruptly cease all stimulation for 30 seconds, then start again. Repeat this pattern until you're ready to ejaculate. Squeeze method: have intercourse as usual until you feel like orgasm is seconds away. Abruptly stop other stimulation and gently squeeze your thumb and forefinger around the part of the penis where the glans meets the shaft (or your partner could do this). After squeezing for a few seconds, pause all stimulation for another 30 seconds before resuming intercourse. Repeat this pattern until you're ready to ejaculate. All the best.

Dear lybrate-user, Welcome to Lybrate. Alcohol and ghutka addiction also comes under abuse and addiction. If you’re ready to stop the substance and willing to get the support you need, you can recover from addiction and abuse —no matter how bad the addiction or how powerless you feel. The first step in treating addiction is accepting that you have a problem. Confronting an addiction and accepting responsibility for your actions isn’t easy. But it’s a necessary step on the road to treatment and recovery. You should then consult a psychiatrist / psychologist who fill follow this treatment. 1. Detoxification using medicines. 2. Behavior modification with the help of therapies. 3. Counseling. 4. Medication to sustain and 5. Long term support. These given steps are essential for any addict to get effectively rid of addiction. Therefore, you need to stick to the treatment plan and cooperate with your psychiatrist / psychologist. Take care.

Sir I want to ask that I feel something like memory loss problem, my HB level is 10g, is this is due to HB deficiency.

M.Sc - Applied Psychology
Psychologist, Bangalore
Hb deficiency can make you tired and lethargic due to poor supply of oxygen to the cells and this does impact your output and can lead to difficulties in concentration. Do eat iron rich, well balanced diet and iron supplements prescribed by your doctor. Once the hb comes to it's normal levels resulting in good supply of oxygen to the organs, you will feel more energetic and will be able to focus well. You have not mentioned your age. Some amount of decline happens in memory capacity with age, if you are concerned then you can consult a neurologist.

It seems like your husband may be having a problem with the responsibility of looking after a baby. Some men are like that who get easily put off or intimidated by the prospect of having a child. You must take him and visit a counselor and get this sorted out. If he is drinking and coming late, I suspect that he may be drowning his'sorrows' but could inadvertently get into addictive levels. In fact thisis hte time you need maximum support and need to be in a calm and composed temperament. This could even jeopardize the health of the unborn child because of your suffering. If he does not change, I suggest that you go to your parent's' place to deliver the child. You could also approach his parents to find out if they can intervene effectively. He may also be in bad company who could do a lot of influnence to take him away from his responsibilities. Do not let this be and your actions may prove to be healthy for your new family and that of your child.

Addiction is a disease. Your father is suffering from the disease of addiction. Need to support him, do not hate to your father. If you want to hate then hate to alcohol. You also know that your father not behave properly after taken alcohol. If he not take alcohol he behaves good with everyone. To get admit to your father in deaddiction center/ you can take treatment from psychiatrist. Decision is yours. Also search about alcoholic anonymous meeting online. You can take help from a. A. Member. Best luck, not to worry.
