Dear , these incidents has nothing to do with memory loss or some organic problems. Busy people do forget things. If you are stressed, anxious, you forget many things. That is not loss of memory. That is stress, anxiety and being busy. Therefore do not misunderstand. Counseling definitely can help you. Let me know if you are willing for telephonic counseling sessions. Take care.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. You are 23. Matured enough to understand right and wrong. Right for you could be wrong for others and vice versa. As long as thoughts are concerned, there is nothing wrong in thinking about fetish aspects. Therefore enjoy. At the same time don't practice it in real life. Take care.

Many times addiction starts as a flight response to stress. In other words, people look for a temporary relief from stress and get into addiction. You need to identify what causes and encourages your addiction so that you can help yourself to get rid of those issues. You can learn to relax yourself and give positive instructions to your mind to release your addiction with the help of hypnotherapy.

Hi I will prescribe some harmless but effective flower remedy available in homoeopathy shops. Try to buy original medicines. Mix 3 drops of mustard + 3 drops of gentian + 3 drops of white chestnut + 3 drops of scleranthus. Mix these with 100 ml water and drink it every morning and night.(same dose. On empty stomach.

Lot of heat generation in my head and leads to concentration problems When I was at 15, I engaged to Unnatural sex activities (rolling on bed-sex) at present I stopped all those but side effects of those activities making me feel like I was in trouble. I have used medicine but beep sounds are coming from left ear and cracking sounds. At present I am preparing for competitive exam{Gate}and I will need much concentration. I am attaching some lab reports. Please suggest me the solution so that I can recover from all those effects.

Engaging in masturbation -'unnatural sex activities', is not bad - it is a natural feeling for every growing individual. There are no side effects of these activities. It doesn't effect your life in any adverse way, now or in the future. You should take a healthy diet- have fresh fruits salads, exercise regularly and drink lots of water. This should help you be healthy and reduce the cracking sounds. Keep taking these medicines, they are multi vitamins. Consult an ent for the sounds in the ear. Focus on what you are capable of doing and work out a daily plan on what you want to study on any particular day. Make a time table in terms of the topics you wish to prepare in a day. Trust yourself and you will be able to achieve whatever you wish to achieve.

Internal frustrated thoughts may cause for anger. Your mother suffering internally so many things. Better to talk to her in a pleasant manner. She will explain her internal thoughts. Love your mother. Trate to her as good friend. She will reveal everything to you. No diet for irritation. If she is not expressed her internal feelings better to mingle to her with her agemates. Then you can ask to them. You know the problem. Internal unhappiness and dissatisfaction thoughts may cause for excessive anger. It is better to consult psychologist. Psychological counselling and relaxation therapy will be much helpful. Better to consult. Best of luck. My best wishes.

I have a two years old baby plus work load of my house hold. While I want to study with fresh mind. please give me some suggestions. Thank you.

Ph. D - Psychology, Professional Certified Coach
Psychologist, Ahmedabad
First of all congretulations on perusing your study after the baby. It shows both your love for progress and your commitment. I am sure you might be feeling that 24 hours in a day are less for you. And you might be surprised by my recommendation. Once you try it you will know it works. So few things I would like to strongly recommend 1. Engage in some kind of exercise daily for may be 20 minutes to begin with. If you haven't been working out then you could start with something very simple. As simple as walking will also work. And slowly you increase the intensity and time both. Exercise will help you with both blood circulation and oxygen intake. Result would be more energy and positivity in your day. 2. Do some kind of relaxation exercise daily. May be 10 minutes of meditation. Just sit with your eyes close in a comfortable position. And as you breath focus on your breath. Feel it going in and coming out. Thoughts are going to come. Remember thoughts are like a waves. It comes and it goes. Each time you realize that thought has come just simply bring your attention back to your breath. You are not fighting with your thought. There is no judgement also. All meditations are good meditations. Just sitting quietly for 10 minutes daily will spread it's magic in your day. If you do it regularly for 2 weeks you will see its calming effect in your day. 3. I am. Sure your first priority is your baby. And then you are giving priority to your house work. Then whatever little energy you have you are giving it to your study. Try switching priority. Slowly make a shift. Decide to begin with one house hold chor that can wait. And put that time and energy into your study. That way instead of feeling exhausted when you study you have some energy. When you are fresh and positive your focus and concentration is more and that will help you finish more work in relatively less time. I do understand that it is easier said then done. You will have your own struggles. And it is equally true that if there is a will there is a way. So please remember to be kind to yourself. Instead of being harsh on yourself if something doesn't go as you wanted. Be kind and forgive yourself. Laugh instead of getting angry. If you could remember to do this even one or two times in a day to begin with. That will generate positive energy. So please take care of yourself. Once you do that taking care of others is easier. Make a little shift in your priority. When your child sleeps instead of rushing to finish household work. Make a nice cup of tea or coffee for yourself and sit down to study. When you are able to make progress in your study. I am sure you will feel good and happy. Then house hold work will not be a burden. With your baby around you can sing and dance and also do your house work. One step at a time. One day at a time. You could make major life style changes. Hope this helps feel free to take help from me if you need help making a plan and building strategy to stick to it. Wishing you very best.

Increase in urinary frequency may be due to diabetes mellitus, diabetes insipidus, urinary tract infections, bladder stones or mass etc. Get an usg kubp done to exclude cystitis (bladder infection) or bladder stone. If there is no such symptoms present like burning in urine, fasting blood sugar and post prandial blood sugar should be checked to exclude diabetes if not done recently. Serum sodium, 24hr urine volume and osmolality is checked for excluding diabetes insipidus. Also avoid sweetened drinks, alcohol and excess amount of coffe or tea intake. Water intake should be restricted to 3-4 litres per day. Also inform about any history of trauma or neurological diseases in past. They may cause overactive bladder. Then according to reports furthur treatment can be done.

Dear user. I can understand. Tobacco is addictive. Cigarette also contains 4000+ carcinogenic chemicals other than nicotine. Smoking can affect your mouth, throat, lungs, heart, stomach and brain in many ways. Cancer is one among the potential diseases smoking can cause. The best method is to leave it and continue with your will power. There are other methods like Nicotine Replacement therapy and pharmacotherapy combined. Nicotine chewing gums too help as an alternative for cigarettes. But still you will need will power. You may consult a physician or deaddiction therapist or a rehabilitation facility for further advice. You can also opt for online deaddiction therapy. Take care.

Getting out of Self Doubt (SD)!

Fellow Observership, Certificate in Forensic Psychology, MD-Psychiatry, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Akola
Getting out of Self Doubt (SD)!
Step out of Denial Mode
When we never admit there is a problem, we cannot seek a solution. Acknowledge your shortcoming and problems which leaves you helpless. Also, dig into your belief system and thought patterns which help sustain SD. Discuss it with your trusted colleagues in the same settings and how do they manage it? Modify your belief system and coping strategies if required.
Maintain a SMILE Journal/ Diary
Record interesting little things that made you happy today. Write a few lines every time you glean a new lesson from your experiences. These small records will help you cheer up whenever you find yourself stuck in old helpless rut.

Locate your support system
Its important to identify your support system in advance. Individuals who are approachable and can guide you out of dense fog of SD. Someone who can help you in modifying existing coping strategies for desirable results.
Maintain Emotional Wellbeing
While trying to step out of SD its important to take care of your emotional wellbeing. Continuous struggle, chances of relapse, exhaustion may lead to frustration and thus anger outbursts, which are capable of diminishing all the progress you have made so far. Learn how to express anger in a healthy way, so that you can use it as an effective tool instead of spoiling everything.
Let go of Fear
A pinch of Fear can do more damage than all criticism summed up. Let go of all excuses & false beliefs that comes in the way of helping yourself. Since everything you tried till date didn’t worked its time to try something new. Start with breaking strings from self doubt. Parent your inner child in the process. Foster making mistakes and take the opportunity to learn something new rather than demoralizing yourself.
I hope these steps at your personal level shall boost you to step out of SD and if nothing works, seek help from a compassionate therapist to ride this rip.

I lost somebody closed last year since then I am feeling depression. So what am I do? Please help me.
Death of a close one is a always painful and difficult to overcome. Generally it take 6 months to one year in recovery but it varies from individual to individual. We always need to put an end to the grief and pain for our own wellbeing. If still you are unable to overcome the pain, that simply means the process of greif (talking out and tears) is yet to be completed. I would suggest you to talk to a friend, who understand your relation with the one who is no more or else take professional help of a psychologist. He/she will help you talk out, accept the situation and finally making easy closure of this painful event in your life.
