What are symptoms of brain tumour? Is it happens by thinking a lot or getting angry and taking so much stress?
Hello, symptoms of brain tumours are different according to different location of the tumour in the brain. Some may have hearing difficulty, blurring of vision, head ache, difficulty talking etc. Brain tumours are not usually caused by the reasons which you mentioned in your question. It may increase the problem if there is existing tumour. Stress is known to case brain stroke which usually affects one side of the body which may be called as paralysis.

I am 23 years old. My weight is 56 kgs and I am 5 ft 11 inches. Gender male. I have lot many problems. I was in a serious relationship but its been two years since break up. I was very much depressed wanted to end up my life but I moved on initially but still the past haunts me. At times I feel depressed. When past sprouts up. A fire within haunts me. I feel like killing me or killing all the girls whom I hate. I dont feel like talking to any girl. I dont talk to any girl thereafter I remain alone I make no friends. ANd I dont know I have started disliking girls. I masturbate to get stress free as a result it gives me some temporary pleasure and makes me feel relax. But it has become a habit. An addiction. I also see its side effects. Like memory loss indigestion weak joints and many more. After I knew its disadvantages I try to reduce but what I observed if I dont masturbate for a couple of days like 3-4 days I feel frustrated depressed again. A spirit of vengeance enlightens. But d moment I masturbate I feel ease. But. What I see my semen comes out like water. I am underweight and ill health So my question is 1) how shall I overcome my past the sudden depression and mood swings? 2) how shall I come over masturbation and porn 3) how to become healthy? Whatever I eat that comes out very soon as stool. I need help mentally physically from all side. Doctors help me.

1. See a physician - you may have some stomach infection/ worm ingestion that is causing frequent bowel movements after meals. 2. Eat healthy- avoid junk foods. 3. Focus on what you want in life. A partner/ companion is a requirement, not a necessity - you have not mentioned the reasons for your break up, but probably you are feeling cheated and betrayed, that's the reason for your frustration. In a relationship both partners are equal, if there is mutual respect only then relationship flourish. You can not and should not force yourself on the other person. Past is past, if you cling on to it, it will hurt. Begin by creating a picture of a bright future for yourself - what you would like to do, what is it that you will like to achieve. What kind of life you look forward to. Change your orientation from pitying yourself from your past expetience to bring a strong person in the present and future. Seek help from a psychologist who can help you be more empowered.

Dear lybrate-user. If you use stress relief tablets along with ganja, alcohol and cigarettes, the tablets will not work as desired. Secondly ganja and alcohol always worsen the stress situation and resultant reaction. I suggest you to quit ganja, alcohol and cigarette. Please. Take care.

Dear lybrate-user, it is good that you wants to stop smoking, try this method we are destroying our health by smoking normal human takes oxygen into lungs 12 -15 times per minute (12 - 15 breaths) lungs mixes oxygen in blood and it purifies our blood, by smoking we are mixing not only oxygen adding and mixing bad elements like nicotine etc. In oxygen, that spoils our blood and our body all organs like lungs, heart, kidney etc. In our body. How to quit: by willingness and willpower" where there is a will there is a way" reduce one by one day by day. If you need any support have counseling help by in-person or audio/video please give us feedback after trying.

Bipolar disorder is nothing but chemical imbalance in our body. This can be well maintained by taking appropriate dosage of medication prescribed by a psychiatrist. You can definitely come out of this situation and maintain a healthy life. Get support of your family members also to maintain a healthy routine.

Sir please help me I have not able to concentrate on any thing some thing always affect my psychology of the different obj.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
There may be something bothering you or stressing you. You must meet with a counselor and deal with that. With regard to concentration here are a few guidelines: 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 or coconut 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 are 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 you and the family go for counseling too.

10 Things You Must Know About Procrastination

10 Things You Must Know About Procrastination

Procrastination is a way of sabotaging oneself by putting off activities and delaying success. This is an emotional and mental obstacle that many people face in varying degrees. So here is everything you need to know about procrastination.

  1. It becomes a lifestyle: As per medical research, about 20% of the people who procrastinate, have been doing it on a chronic basis and can now safely say that this is a lifestyle and not just a habit that one has fallen prey to.
  2. It is cultivated: Contrary to popular belief, procrastination is not something that anyone is born with. It is cultivated with constant inaction over a period of years, which also includes the act of making excuses to put off a task.
  3. Excessive alcohol consumption: In many cases, procrastinators will end up enjoying higher consumption of alcohol than their contemporaries. This may be done to alleviate boredom before the excessive consumption becomes a habit, which further dulls the senses.
  4. Hiding from the truth: It has been seen that procrastinators often lie to themselves or hide the truth about their problem by making mindless excuses, which do not actually exist. They are chronic liars who come to believe their lies, which can give rise to even more severe behavioural issues.
  5. Distractions: Most people who procrastinate will look for distractions that will keep them from doing their work properly. This may include watching television or eating, or even doing mindless chores that are not important.
  6. Focus: Many of these procrastinators have problems when it comes to focusing and finding solutions for various tasks. They cannot prioritise and put their mind to a certain task, which also prevents them from understanding the requirements for completing that task.
  7. Avoiders: These types of procrastinators usually avoid doing the tasks that will lead them to success. They do not make the effort to carry out the necessary tasks in a proper manner.
  8. Decisional procrastinators: These kind of procrastinators simply cannot find the motivation to take a decision that will change the direction of their lives by putting one step in front of the other on a daily basis.
  9. Cost of procrastination: There is a huge cost that is borne by these kinds of people in the long run. While missing deadlines, losing jobs and not graduating from college are just some of the consequences, many of them also come down with a plethora of health conditions including gastrointestinal diseases.
  10. Therapy for procrastination: The best way to transform a procrastinator is with the help of cognitive behavioural therapy, which can help in reprogramming the brain with fruitful, guided discussions and internal dialogues. This kind of therapy works well in the long run.

Dear lybrate-user, I understand your concerns. You are experiencing depressive symptoms. Increasing irritability, lethargy, easy fatiguability and low mood are all initial symptoms in depression. You need to undergo serum thyroid level, Vit B12, Vit D3 level test first. Deficiency of above thing also cause such symptoms. Good medicine and psychological therapy are available for your condition. I would advise you to consult psychiatrist. Till then start exercise, listen to loud music, spend time with good friend. All d best.

Sir/mam, I always try to act positively to anyone. Like give them extra space. But often they try to bully me and also use harsh words. I can argue with them but I don't like the situation it leads to. How am I supposed to tackle that kind of situation?

Psychologist,
You are someone who wants to please others and stay in their good books all the time and at all expenses. This might win you some true friends but it can also find you some people who will misuse your sweetness and bully you. You need to strengthen your boundaries with such people and tackle them in a different manner. Counselling helps you to change your strategy based on who you are facing so that you are in a win win situation or at least be able to protect yourself from such people.

It will improve significantly on medication. So don't worry, good treatment are the just consult psychiatrist. All d best.

Its nothing unusual it happens with every one, but only difference is that you are giving it more importance and so its causing more problem ,its like that if someone walks on rope without thinking anything else then he may walk on the rope but when that person will think what will happen if I will fall down and its consequences then surely that person will fall. Take healthy food increase fruits intake, egg, dairy products, you can follow my few suggestions it will help you 1.take 6-7 hours sleep everyday. 2.do some exercise like sit in the posture of yogi both hands on stomach then inhale and exhale air forcibly do it for 10 times it will not take more than 10 minutes. It will increase your concentration power. 3.Increase the intake of fruits ,green vegetables, and dairy products in partwise as this will not feel you sleepy. 4.don't take pressure before any conversation think it as a regular routine as much you will give importance to these things you will get nervous. If you need my help you can contact me. Good luck.

My wife and mother often quarrel and then I am stuck between them. What should I do to improve such kind of situations?

Psychiatrist, Bangalore
You have to improve relationships and conflicts and develop trust and love and accept your limitations. Try to sacrifice your time to build confidence in both of them by giving gifts to both mum and wife. Read the following: olutions that can save a relationship. Communication all relationship problems stem from poor communication, you can't communicate while you're checking your blackberry, watching tv, or flipping through the sports section" sex even partners who love each other can be a mismatch, sexually, lack of sexual self-awareness and education worsens these problems. But having sex is one of the last things you should give up" sex" brings us closer together, releases hormones that help our bodies both physically and mentally, and keeps the chemistry of a healthy couple healthy" problem-solving strategies: plan, plan, plan. Money money problems can start even before the wedding vows are exchanged. They can stem, for example, from the expenses of courtship or from the high cost of a wedding. Problem-solving strategies: be honest about your current financial situation. If things have gone south, continuing the same lifestyle is unrealistic. Don't approach the subject in the heat of battle. Instead, set aside a time that is convenient and non-threatening for both of you. Acknowledge that one partner may be a saver and one a spender, understand there are benefits to both, and agree to learn from each other's tendencies. Don't hide income or debt. Bring financial documents, including a recent credit report, pay stubs, bank statements, policies, debts, and investments to the table. Don't blame. Construct a joint budget that includes savings. Decide which person will be responsible for paying the monthly bills. Allow each person to have independence by setting aside money to be spent at his or her discretion. Decide upon short-term and long-term goals. It's ok to have individual goals, but you should have family goals, too. Talk about caring for your parents as they age and how to appropriately plan for their financial needs if needed. Struggles over home chores most partners work outside the home and often at more than one job. So it's important to fairly divide the labor at home. Problem-solving strategies: be organized and clear about your respective jobs in the home" write all the jobs down and agree on who does what" be fair so no resentment builds. Be open to other solutions, she says if you both hate housework, maybe you can spring for a cleaning service. If one of you likes housework, the other partner can do the laundry and the yard. You can be creative and take preferences into account -- as long as it feels fair to both of you. Not making your relationship a priority if you want to keep your love life going, making your relationship a focal point should not end when you say" I do" relationships lose their luster. So make yours a priority. Problem-solving strategies: do the things you used to do when you first met. Show appreciation, compliment each other, contact each other through the day, and show interest in each other. Schedule time together on the calendar, say" thank you" appreciate" it lets your partner know that they matter. Conflict occasional conflict is a part of life. The same lousy situations keep repeating day after day -- it's time to break free of this toxic routine. When you make the effort, you can lessen the anger and take a calm look at underlying issues. Problem-solving strategies: you and your partner can learn to argue in a more civil, helpful manner. Make these strategies part of who you are in this relationship. Realize you are not a victim. It is your choice whether you react and how you react. Be honest with yourself. When you're in the midst of an argument, are your comments geared toward resolving the conflict, or are you looking for payback? if your comments are blaming and hurtful, it's best to take a deep breath and change your strategy. Change it up. If you continue to respond in the way that's brought you pain and unhappiness in the past, you can't expect a different result this time. Just one little shift can make a big difference. If you usually jump right in to defend yourself before your partner is finished speaking, hold off for a moments. You'll be surprised at how such a small shift in tempo can change the whole tone of an argument. Give a little; get a lot. Apologize when you're wrong. Sure it's tough, but just try it and watch something wonderful happen" you can't control anyone else's behavior" the only one in your charge is you" trust trust is a key part of a relationship. Do you see certain things that cause you not to trust your partner? or do you have unresolved issues that prevent you from trusting others? problem-solving strategies: be consistent. Be on time. Do what you say yent. Be sensitive to the other's feelings. You can still disagree, but don't discount how your partner is feeling. Call when you say you will. Call to say you'll be home late. Carry your fair share of the workload. Don't overreact when things go wrong. Never say things you can't take back. Don't dig up old wounds. Respect your partner's boundaries. Don? t be jealous. Be a good listener. Even though there are always going to be problems in a relationship you both can do things to minimize marriage problems, if not avoid them altogether. First, be realistic. Thinking your mate will meet all your needs -- and will be able to figure them out without your asking -- is a hollywood fantasy" ask for what you need directly" next, use humor -- learn to let things go and enjoy one another more. Finally, be willing to work on your relationship and to truly look at what needs to be done. Don't think that things would be better with someone else. Unless you address problems, the same lack of skills that get in the way now will still be there and still cause problems no matter what relationship you're in. Good luck this is with your wife/ develop also with your mother.

Hello lybrate user.....This is good that you can relate your problems to smoking cigarettes and the good news is that you definitely can quit it completely. The bad news is that smoking cigarettes for long time is nicotine addiction which causes structural changes in our brain due to which quitting it becomes difficult. Usually people start smoking with friends just for experimentation and later for enjoyment and still later to relieve stress in life, but what they forget is that gradually smoking becomes a compulsion in their life and then whenever a stressful situation arises they smoke. Nicotine hijacks the pleasure seeking center in our brain and this hence the previously pleasure giving food items or activities are no more pleasurable to the same extent. You start spending more and more time in obtaining and enjoying smoking cigarettes. We have medications which decreases craving and helps in quitting smoking completely. Along with medications making simple changes in lifestyle and bringing about stress management in life can have miraculous help in quitting smoking addiction. I hope that you quit smoking in the near future and resume a healthy life. Take care
