Stop smoking, stop taking stress of getting angry and do not take everything to heart. Eat a healthy food with less oils, more seasonal fruits and vegetables and be your own doctor to reduce stress.

There are various psychological as well as medication based methods available to quit smoking, and results are the best when both of these approaches are combined. Nicotine replacement therapy, in addition to motivation enhancement therapy, would be advisable. Please get in touch with a psychiatrist for the above.

Dear , anxiety is apprehension and fear about a future event which may or may not happen. There are different types of anxiety disorder like general, social, health related etc. I need to know exactly what type of anxiety disorder you are suffering from, so that I will be able to provide you with the correct treatment.

As he can remember important things there is defect in his memory and forgetting trivial issues as they may not be closely related to his interest is common in many people and you need not worry.

Hello doctor I am a very introvert person and quiet also. I generally keep most of my emotions to myself. In my class also I have many things (doubts) to ask but I am unable to do so as I am introvert and self conscious ,unconfident and I barely talk to anyone. I do not feel like interacting with anyone but when I want to talk to somebody my introvertness stops me. Nowadays, it bothers me alot as I am not able to express myself and people around me thinks that I am a timid and unfriendly person. And whenever anyone says that I am a quiet person it hurts me badly .because I know earlier I wasn't a quiet and dull kind of girl but for some years I hv became so. People take me for granted they come to me when they need help. Currently I do not have any friends. Also I hv developed a negative mindset I find negativity in everything . And I feel sad for no reason. And I get easily affected by what people say. I am always sad and always think negative about myself and feels people around me do not like me and will target me & make fun of me that stops me from going out . I get worried easily on small day to day things. please suggest me what should I do to change myself and improve my personality & thinking .

You are indeed unique and there is no one who is going to be like you, ever! You have a problem of self-acceptance, and if I may venture to say may be a rejection issue. This latter may have happened due to an actual rejection which you may have experienced very early in your life. The solution to this is a matter of genuine self-acceptance or self-love. I am not talking about narcissism: this is a genuine love of yourself. It is not based on your appearance alone. You must work on developing yourself in five areas: the physical fitness, emotional fitness, intellectual fitness, social fitness and spiritual fitness. I would also suggest you attend a good personality development program, a speech training course (I suggest the Toastmasters Club), a conversation and elocution course, and to do a personal grooming course too. Education is very good to boost self-confidence, and together with that if you develop socializing skills, you will make it big. Meet with a counselor and ask to be trained in handling emotions, and that will just take you places. Read a lot and meet lots of people, even if you feel too conscious: in time you will get out of this backwardness very well. Do physical fitness exercises regularly. Ultimately, if you believe in God, you will know that you are so precious to Him that no one else’s opinion or acceptance is as important as His. Your life will change phenomenally!

Dear, at your age, memory problems like amnesia are not common. Many young people are having problems with memory. These problems are either they are too busy or due to anxiety and stress. Busy people use organizers or employ a personal assistant because they can't remember every task. You need to understand this. If you still say, you are having memory problems, we need to check your memory using memory test. If you want more of my help in this regard, please contact me. Take care.

I don't want to be a gay. But I m interested to men? what I have to do?

I don't want to be a gay. But I m interested to men? what I have to do?
Well, it's okay that you are interested in men. This means either you have more female members in your family or you have less unisex friends. It is natural that anybody is attracted towards handsome men and beautiful ladies. One another interpretation of this behaviour may be that you unconsciously feel uncomfortable with women due to whatever reasons ; or you feel inferior at some issues. All you do is to boost up your self confidence. Once you would start feeling handsome and confident internally you would be behaving with everybody normally. Don't think that others are looking at you and what they would be saying, instead think that you are looking at others and you are awesome. I hope this works for you.

She has to continue drugs for epilepsy throughout pregnancy for smooth running of it because uncontrolled epilepsy can affect mother and baby badly. Again, we need to check whether drugs levels are adequate or not in pregnancy. Now, miscarriage is different issue- that needs thorough investigations to diagnose the cause of it and then start treatment.

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.

Hello sir, you asked me to be more clear about my anxiety condition. As I have mentioned earlier that I am asocial person so I have limited people in my life. I was advised by local doctor last year to enhance my social circle try socializing which has only lead to develop some expectations and has made me more social. I have a body shivering problem. I can not figure out the reason of sour relations with everyone including my parents which is disturbing me. Most of the time pessimistic no matter how much I try making it positive. Also have to deal with future oriented anxiety. Its been 6 days of chronic headache due to my decision of quiting smoking. No one is happy with me.

Good Morning ~ I am glad your social anxiety disorder or social phobia is gradually getting better and you are socializing more. Body shivering or tremors can be due to anxiety attacks or panic attacks and this can be easily treated with either therapy or medications. I recommend a combination of both which is more effective. With regards to your parents and your problems with relationship with them I would have to learn more so that I can understand and try to help with your condition a bit better. Underlying depression may be the cause of pessimism and procrastination, along with social phobia. Anticipatory anxiety which is being worried about becoming worried is something which needs to be treated medically.

Don't feel depressed. It's nature of every human being that some one or some thing is very important for us we don't want to lose it. And if we lose it we all feel depressed. It will take some time to come out of it. Be positive keep calm your self and keep busy your self in some of your favroute activities. If you think you need help you can consult with any psychologist or you can contact us.

I think that you are giving yourself a lot of stress because you do nt seem to have a proper direction in your life. I suggest that you meet with a career guidance counselor and find out your aptitude and thereby the suitable profession. This is an important test to do for all children before they attempt their 11th and 12th courses. We often choose professions on the basis of the peer influence, parents demands, fanciful ideas and whims, for the sake of earning pots of money, family tradition etc. Now there are so many options and avenues for employment that the chosen field must be in accordance with your skills-set, aptitude, and your personal aspirations. Otherwise you will end up being depressed and disappointed. Once you have identified your career you can single mindedly foci on that and develop yourself. Never look too much into the future, it will always frighten you because it has not yet happened and nobody can predict the future. Once you have identified the future goal identify steps to reach that goal and focus on the here and now i. E. The immediate steps to reach that goal. In the meantime eat well, sleep well, and do regular exercise.
