Hello have you seen any physician for this particular problem, if not I would suggest that first you need to get your check up done by a physician and even if the similar problem persists then you can write again. And secondly, you need to find the reason of getting emotional or anxious first and need to specifically mention the reason here, so that we may work on that reason which is causing anxiety. All the best

I was in a relationship with a girl for 15 months one of the best time we had, we both love each other, both work in same company, same team but due to religious difference we couldn't continue but I can't live without her so can't she, Itz been over a month since we broke up but we can't get over each other. I can't live without her I want to die, I can't live without seeing her, I can't sleep, I don't know what to do, she is also suffering that is the worst.

If all this is leading to a life-threatening situation, you can both inform your parents that the choice they have left you with is that you will be dead if not allowed to marry and alive if allowed. Let them know the seriousness of the situation. In the meantime do not do anything silly: life is extremely precious and nobody is worth dying for. So think logically that even if they still do not agree, it is not the end of the world. If you two truly love each other, you can both refuse the proposals brought by your parents until you are allowed to marry. But both must be on the same page.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. You cannot accept his present behavior. This happens just because you are in love with him. You got cheated and your mind could not accept the cheating. Accepting is the key. Inability to accept and refusal to accept are two different attitudes. You know there is no reversal to this situation. You have to take revenge. Forget him, marry another person, live well and show your boy friend that you are capable and can live without him. You can do it. Take care.

Dear sir/ madam I am 46 years old guy not established both personally and professionally. I have ocd and I get feelings of irritation, anger, some sort of disturbance in my head (heaviness I would say ), depression. After I put on my shoe lace I avoid touching my face body. It bothers me. I feel dirtied. Even when dust flies all over my body on moving out it makes me feel dirty, angry, depressed. I avoid touching door handles, door locks as I feel I will dirty my hands. I don't like to touch my books after I touch my shoes. I feel I will dirty the books. I wash hand after every activity with soap. I apply soap on taps and my hand after brushing, after making tea I wash hands with soap. I cannot stand the stickiness of my hands nor dirtying my hands. I want to overcome all that is wrong with me. I am giving more importance to cleanliness than my life, my career, I am not sound financially. I request someone to offer me free psychotherapy as my situation is bad. Thanks

Repeated thoughts coming to the mind, acting to the thoughts to calm the mind & increased uneasiness when try to resist these thoughts, are symptoms of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD). The repeated thought of dirt & your acting to the thoughts by repeated washing & cleaning indicate that you are suffering from OCD. Treatment is available for OCD in the form of medicines & psychotherapy. If you get treated you can be relieved of the OCD. So get yourself evaluated by a Psychiatrist to assess the extent & severity of OCD in you, who will prescribe you treatment accordingly. Your feeling that you are not established professionally & personally indicate you may have pessimistic thoughts. The feelings of irritation, anger, heaviness in head, all these say that you may have Depression within. Take help of a Psychiatrist & get yourself evaluated & treated accordingly. And most important try to imbibe positive thoughts within. It is never late to start anything. Put your maximum efforts to solve the problems in your life. If after trying also no solution is coming, discuss your problem with a well wisher with whom you feel comfortable, take help if necessary & try to solve it. Read motivational books & quotes to build in optimism. For any problem coming in life, one should not loose patience & hope nor get frustrated & pessimistic about it. Problems come to everyone's life in different forms & maximum effort should be put to overcome them. With a calm mind, one should work on the problem. Try to analyze the problem & work on all possible ways to solve it, putting maximum effort. If one way is not working, try the other alternative to solve it. If still it is not solved, take help from outside & try to solve it. Good results definitely come if one proceeds with a calm, positive & confident mind.

This is a sign of stress and your mind will wander frequently because of this. Meet with a counselor and sort out that stress. In the meantime do some of these recommendations very faithfully: Daily exercise of at least half an hour is a must. Even if you go to a gym, ask for aerobic and/or callisthenic exercises with whatever else you are doing. A healthy body harbors a healthy mind. With regard to memory, it is very important that your brain and body is ideally rested to be able to recall whatever is required, rather comfortably. 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 night’s sleep, 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, consume less of fat and use olive oil instead, 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 is a new exercise called Super Brain Yoga, which is done by holding the right earlobe with your left thumb and index finger, and the left earlobe with your right hand’s thumb and index finger. In this position, you must squat down and rise up and do this for five minutes every day. There is some memory enhancing techniques and study methods that your teacher will be able to guide you with. If your home life is full of distractions and stress, it is likely to affect your memory, adversely. In that case, I suggest that the family goes for counseling too. The following foods do help too: Blueberries, walnuts, turmeric, Spinach, tomatoes, broccoli, acorn squash, green tea, oily fish, boiled egg, turkey, apples, oatmeal, leafy greens, lentils, pumpkin seeds, avocado, cinnamon, thyme, sunflower seeds, and red wine. Avoid sugar and junk food. You may also include these noted foods that are good for your brain health: Brain-Friendly Foods MIND stands for Mediterranean-DASH Intervention for Neurodegenerative Delay. But the MIND approach “specifically includes foods and nutrients that medical literature and data show to be good for the brain, such as berries,” says Martha Clare Morris, ScD, director of nutrition and nutritional epidemiology at Rush University Medical Center. You eat things from these 10 food groups: •Green leafy vegetables (like spinach and salad greens): At least six servings a week •Other vegetables: At least one a day •Nuts: Five servings a week •Berries: Two or more servings a week •Beans: At least three servings a week •Whole grains: Three or more servings a day •Fish: Once a week •Poultry (like chicken or turkey): Two times a week •Olive oil: Use it as your main cooking oil. •Wine: One glass a day You avoid: •Red meat: Less than four servings a week •Butter and margarine: Less than a tablespoon daily •Cheese: Less than one serving a week •Pastries and sweets: Less than five servings a week •Fried or fast food: Less than one serving a week.

Avoid drugs, simply make a habit of simple living, high thinking by eating simple foods like vegetables and cow's milk, avoid tobacco products and reduce common tea and coffee which can cause vaso-constriction leading to headache.

Dear lybrate-user, Sorry to hear about your brothe'sr and parent's sufferings. This what happens to many families that have a person living with a mood disorder. Your brother is young and he has the whole future in his hand. Let not the mood disorder spoil it. Please know that mood disorders are treatable. The treatment may be long term mood stabilizers, antidepressants, tranquilizers, psychotherapy or a combination of all these at different times. Please have hope and continue to treat him as advised by your psychiatrist. You will be doing good not only for your brother but for the whole family including yourself. Positive results, take time because many tablets don't reach brain immediately. It takes 2-3 weeks. Doctors usually give a low dose in the beginning and then only increase the dose. The same doctor will help you out with the dose and different type of tablets at different time. Even if your brother refuses to go to doctor, you or your parents can go to him and discuss your brother's mood swings.
