Please make sure your wife consumes the tablets properly as advised. Some tablets are filmcoated so the coating may pass in stools looking like the tablets but the medication is still effective. Consult her psychiatrist again because it seems her depression has reemerged which is common in patients of long standing illnesses especially diabetes. A diet rich in fibre will help her digestion. Please also get her general checkup including blood sugars and hba1c and blood pressure rechecked if she hasn't been regular with her medication.

Hi Nik, Nothing comes with guarantee in life. There are always risks and chances we have to take. We have to be convinced on the choices we make in our life. When you started with relation you must have seen something worth to take that step. Insecurities are a part of every relation but if you cant convince yourself that she will be be worth it or if she is serious for you let it go. Because otherwise you are in a prison from where there is no escape. You will continuously be in insecurities and they will harm you and your relation. You can ask her upfront what she wants, how she sees the relationship and since you know her the best make a decision about being together or not. sometimes our insecurities are baseless and we should consciously make an effort to overcome it by thinking about worthwhile things, being busy, make your career. always remember, the right people will stay while be thankful for the wrong people leaving your life. You can help her to the limit possible for you, you don;t have to go out of the way. This way you will help also and may not regret majorly if anything goes wrong. Have faith for once let go off the insecurities and see. Whatever happens happens for good.

I am 22 years old and my problem is, what I read that has been expire from my memory beetwin 2 or 3 days. So kindly give me some suggestion to improve my memory power.

Masters in Clinical Psychology
Psychologist, Lucknow
Hi, firstly rule out the following, drug and alcohol use can have a negative impact on memory functioning. Exercise and good health are associated with better brain oxygenation and improved speed of learning and recall. Fatigue can interrupt our ability to attend to incoming information as well as to retrieve stored information. The impact of stress and tension on memory abilities should not be underestimated. Feelings of anxiety and/or depression can interrupt your ability to attend to information, store information, and retrieve information. Tips: writing things down can help you remember things. Writing is a form of rehearsal. Writing also allows you to process the information through a other modalitites. Long-term memory requires a structure or framework so that you can retrieve information later. Organize information. Separate information into meaningful groups that share common attributes (e. G. When studying history learn facts associated with a particular time period, a particular person, or significant historical event together, as a group). For more queries and suggestion, you can contact me directly. All the best:)

I am 23 years old. Sometimes my brain think bad things automatically. I cant control it. what should I do?
It is normal for the brain to have thoughts. The only way to control it is to ignore the thought and understand it is just a thought and has no greater power on your mind and self and in the bigger scheme of things. Stay focused on the present and at the activity on hand, not on the thought which like you yourself said is bad.

Dear Aditya, at your age, Memory problems like amnesia, dementia or Alzheimer's are not common. Many young people do complain having problems with memory. These problems are due to 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. You may contact a clinical psychologist or neurologist for memory test and further investigation. Take care.

Dear chandrasekhar, I do understand. I do not know how bad is memory problem. The best method to improve memory power is to actively engage in brain games and other physical games. Spinach, nuts, fruits are always beneficial to the brain. I need to know more. People worry unnecessarily over memory problems. I think your worries are also such. I need to determine whether you really have any memory problems.

Sometimes slowing down is the only solution for the body and mind to rest, relax and recoup. You seem to be in a hurry and that can be very tiring if you are not resting enough. If you have stress in your life then you will get mentally tired. Eating junk food also doesn't help as its poor in nutrition. Doing physical and mental exercises will help increase blood circulation and build new neuro pathways for a healthier brain. Exercise your brain with puzzles, quiz, anagrams, sudoku, crossword etc which is like a mental gym and gives it enough exercise to rebuild itself back and develop focus, alertness, concentration etc. Meditation and pranayama calms the mind and oxygen brings fresh blood and energy to the brain. Counselling will help you to remove the unnecessary clutter in life and focus your energy in what is best for you. Please click on private chat for a personalised session.

It is not good to use medicine for small reasons. It leads to some other problems. It has a chance to effect to side effects. Better to change the friend circle. Or make a very good friend with another one. Spend most of the time with remaining friends they are not related to him. Develop a very good new friends. Talk some of them. Who may have a positive opinion on you. Express your all internal feelings and problems with family members and close friends. Do not be alone. Develop a very good busy schedule. Visit remaining friends homes or relatives homes etc. Visit temples, parks or very new places. If it is possible better to change the place. Spend most of the time in happy mood. Better to remove his memories in your books. Do not think his name and others. Give suggestions that I am always well and I have no problems. Feel always confident and comfortable manner. Be sociable and be happy. Ok all the best.

You are emotionally unstable. You need emotional therapy. You are suffering from psychological problem. Because of excessive internal frustrated thoughts. You are very easily getting angerness. Better to analyse your internal thoughts. If anything is secrecy or anything leads to dissatisfaction. Analyse that. Based on that take further steps to come out from this statues. Excessive angerness will not come without any reason. After analyse then take your environment very easily. Maintain calmness and pleasant manner. Better to practise yoga and meditation. Express your internal thoughts to your close friends and family member. Be sociable. Be happy all time. Do not maintain this status. It is always problematic to you. Better to come out from this status. Ok all the best.

Dear doctor, I am 41 years old from mumbai, india & suffering from moderate levels of obsessive compulsive disorder (ocd) which is hereditry (my father is suffering from ocd & alzheimers too). Although my ocd is under control but at times, I feel it becomes uncontrollable despite myself knowing very well that the kind of repetitive acts (common symptoms of ocd) I am doing are totally needless. I can see all traits & symptoms of ocd in myself viz. Rechecking several times, the door lock, geyser, gas etc. Etc. & feeling insecure about the same. I am totally aware that what I am indulging is absolutely needless. Ocd is impairing my daily life & routine. Tasks which should take not more than a few moments take me hours to finish. I have apprehensions that if my ocd gets out-of-control, my life might become miserable & pathetic in future (it is already on that track). It has already affected my career & life adversely since I keep on getting repetitive thought-patterns through-out the day about the conversations I have had with people in person or on the phone i. E. Flashback thoughts about such conversations go through my mind recursively hence I am unable to concentrate & focus on any constructive work because of these endless repetitive thoughts. I have also been suffering from the mental illness viz. Trichotillomania (nose hair pulling, impulse control disorder) since last 5 years. Whenever I am deeply engrossed in some work and/or thoughts, my hands inadvertently & invariably go in the nostrils area & start plucking the nose hair strands continuously. The urges are very strong at times whenever I am tensed & anxious or under severe pressure or stress. This has ruined my career & impaired my life immensely. I don't do the hair-pulling act in public but whenever I am alone. I don't have any control whatsoever over it though mostly I am fully aware whenever i'm pulling but really can't help stop it; the urges are really that strong. This annoying & irritating habit consumes lots of precious time & hampers my work. So much so that, I leave my work & stand in front of the mirror looking for hair strands to pull-out. What are the possible treatment lines for ocd & trichotillomania? please help me, i'm terribly depressed. Kindly advice the treatment & the therapy I need to undergo to cure myself of ocd & trichotillomania thanks in anticipation. Warm regards

Hi lybrate-user, that can be really worked on through psychotherapy and counseling. To start with 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 with me or any psychologist for therapy all the best.

In our current life style most of us are not equipped to deal with our mental and emotional processes. Due to constant out side pressure and expectations we doubt and question our abilities. Also in a age of super fast life we lean towards instant results, which at times are not possible. This again increase our stress level. The best way to deal with this is to build our resilience and learn to manage our strees level. Once you are able to manage your stress, your self confideance and your self esteem both will increase and you will be able to make better decisions and accomplish lot in life. Try following on a regular basis and in 2 to 4 weeks you will see some positive changes in your life. Stress is a by product of our modern life style. Due to chronic stress you have a negative chain of thought repeating in your mind. The wonderful new is that our mind could be wired to switch back to positive things and resilience building. When things does not happen as we wish or people do not behave as we expect that is when out of disappointment, frustration, loneliness, anger, sadness. Etc we react and our mind starts thinking negative thoughts. Changing this pattern of responding to stressful situation requires both persistence and patience. Also you will only be able to work on this out of love and kindness towards you. Strong motivation will go a long way. Writing a statement about how would you want to respond in a similar situation and how will your life and your happiness will change if you do learn to manage your stress and how to respond to it. Once that is clear. Try following things to learn relaxation response which leads to better coping mechanism on a daily basis. To begin with doing guided progressive muscular relaxation before sleeping will help you relax. You could google and download an audio file. I would also suggest you to take a multiple small break to take 3 nice and deep breath while keeping your eyes closed. You could do this while sitting or standing or while even walking or climbing stairs (keep your eyes open in that case). When you take a nice and deep break there is actual physiological change in your body. This will help you to activate parasympathetic nervous system which promotes relaxation and helps you calm down and think more clearly. This will also actually improve your performance in your work. Along with this exercise is one of the best way to relive stress and stay fit. Engage in any kind of physical activity at least 4 times a week. This also helps in stress reduction. Along with this some relaxation exercises as well as engaging in joyful activities such as music, singing, dancing, reading, being in nature, gardening, talking with friends or anything which you enjoy will help reducing stress and rejuvenation of your mind and body. Have good routine for sleep and eating. Lot of research has now proven that sugar is very harmful for our health. Reduce sugar and refined white floor in your diet as much as you could. Along with this also increase consumption of raw vegetables in the form of salad in both the meals of your day. If you are open for online consultation to work on individualized plan and strategies feel free to book an audio consultation with me. Hope this helps, wishing you very best,

Schizophrenia is characterised by thoughts or experiences that seem out of touch with reality, disorganised speech or behaviour and decreased participation in daily activities. Difficulty with concentration and memory may also be present. Treatment is usually lifelong and often involves a combination of medications, psychotherapy and coordinated speciality care services.
