You must surely have been living a life of stress for many years for this development at this age. You should immediately learn some stress-management skills, and reduce the burden on your brain. You need to examine your feelings of sadness, fear and anger to see that you express them appropriately in your normal course. A counselor will definitely help you with that. Then there are certain exercises that will help you develop your memory: these are mental recalling-exercises. Do regular physical exercises, do crosswords, picture comparison, jigsaws, Sudoku, memory co-relation activities and skills. Sleep well, eat well, and learn to be fit always. You may want to go for a medical check to ascertain that there are no other serious debilitating brain conditions that are advancing on you innocuously. I always suggest the following ideas to youngsters. So if you are open do attempt these and they will surely help you. 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 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 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.

Hello, being diabetic (even with normal sugar values) predisposes you to multiple conditions like shoulder degenerative tendinopathy, frozen shoulder which causes arm and shoulder pain. It would be better if it is evaluated furthur by proper examination and any investigation if required. Generalized body pain can be due to multiple causes most common being decreased bone strength (osteoporosis). It also requires furthur evaluation.

Sir one of my friend is an alcoholic. Recently he had breakup with his wife. Now he is creating levels are high and he is under dialysis. I am wondering if the reason for his condition is high blood pressure or alcoholism. Please reply I am worried for him.

Psychiatrist, Kollam
Alcoholism is one of the reason for high blood pressure. Though alcohol has direct effects on bp it also indirectly affect bp. Usually alcoholic people eat oily food and nonveg food more frequently than non alcoholic people and they also spend much time in drinking without physical activities.

You may be under some stress, and I do not know if you are aware of it. Find out what this disturbance is all about and as you address it, memory and concentration will happily return to favor you. Do meet with a counselor, if your stress is too much. In the meantime please follow the suggested 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.

Hi Sir, 33 years old. I sleep but I keep getting dreams in my sleep, I had never sound sleep. Moreover, I am feeling inferior because my household people keep saying me that I do not know anything. Even in office they say I lack maturity. I feel that really I do not know anything in this world. Though I come for work, still I feel that am not good. I want to improve my carrier and come up financially but I do not know what I have do. I am not able to say anything straight forward because I feel that I should not hurt anybody. I feel that I do not have anybody even though I have everybody, sometimes I feel living in this world is totally waste. When nobody likes me, there is no point in living. I go mad sometimes. Nowadays I stopped talking much at home, as talking to everybody and getting a bad impression I have stopped talking both at home and in my office too. I do not know how to come out of this. I have many things to share but I have nobody to share. Please help me to come out of this.

Dear friend, I am sorry to hear your life story so far. It seems that you have started believing in everything people around you have been telling you. This has affected your self confidance and self esteem. I would suggest that you work with someone closely to change the way you are seeing yourself and situation. A counselor or psychologist will be able to help you learn the way you can responde differently in a given situation in a way that increase your confidance slowly and you once again will start believing in yourself. We all have immense potential within us and due to currently situation you are not able to tap into your own potentials and strength. Talking to someone will help you release your emotional stress. Once that happens you will be able to think and see your situation differently and responde differently. In the meanwhile, try following things for stress management. When our mind is hooked into past it is normal to have lot of negative thoughts and in turn feeling low. The good news is that our mind could be wired to switch back to positive things and resilience building. We have immense potential within us and we could tap into those one step at a time, one day at a time. 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. Let me. Know if you need any further help. Hope this helps wishing you very best.

Dear Mr. Lybrate-user, nice to see that you have openly expressed your situation. Each individual has his or her own likes / dislikes hobbies, interests. Invest some time in your self and develop your own long term and short term goals. Try to live your life according to the goals you have set for your self. During the course of your life you will come across some people with whom you will have common interests or with whom you can share your feelings. Develop friendship and relationships with such people. Always remember that the other person is also looking for some one to talk to or share his/ her feelings. Being a good listener will give you an opportunity to meet up with such people. Wishing you all the best!

Hi lybrate-user, for many men anxiety and pressure to perform is a major contributor to premature ejaculation. Relax and remember that your partner probably cares about more than the timing of your orgasms, and that premature ejaculation doesn't mean you can't still be good in bed. Take climaxing out of your expectations. Instead of viewing intercourse only as a means of achieving orgasm, reframe it as relaxing, pleasurable time with your partner that you'll enjoy regardless of ejaculation. Discuss this new mindset with your partner, so that he or she can stop pressuring you, intentionally or not. If you notice yourself getting too excited, turn your thoughts to something distant, abstract and unsexy, such as math, rush hour traffic or baseball. Only dwell on it long enough to give yourself a short break from arousal, maybe 5 to 10 seconds, then refocus your attention on your partner. Avoid thinking of a topic that is going to make you stressed or cause you to lose your arousal entirely. Edging, or orgasm control, is the practice of maintaining a high level of sexual arousal while delaying ejaculation. It takes practice, but it gets easier over time. Here are two methods recommended by the national institutes of health to stop premature ejaculation: stop-and-start method: have intercourse as usual until you feel yourself coming uncomfortably close to orgasm. Immediately and abruptly cease all stimulation for 30 seconds, then start again. Repeat this pattern until you're ready to ejaculate. Squeeze method: have intercourse as usual until you feel like orgasm is seconds away. Abruptly stop other stimulation and gently squeeze your thumb and forefinger around the part of the penis where the glans meets the shaft (or your partner could do this). After squeezing for a few seconds, pause all stimulation for another 30 seconds before resuming intercourse. Repeat this pattern until you're ready to ejaculate. All the best.

Relax a bit and understand your nature and behavior. Address your concerns and try to go slow on improving your situation. You can also go for counselling and take medications from a psychologist. Accepting a problem is almost half the work done. You can also take homeopathic medicines also with that as they are mild and safe.

Dear students the following strategies can help you to overcome exam related stress:-
1:- plan your study time:- plan your studying with regularly scheduled study sessions about 45 minutes long separated by 5-10 minutes breaks.
2:- try to maintain a healthy lifestyle:- eat healthy foods, get enough sleep, do some physical exercise regularly.

My ht is 168cm my wt 78kgs I am a smoker but not heavy every day I smoke 6 to 7 cigarettes I have normal diet.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
This extent of smoking for a diabetic is bad medicine, really. You have to stop smoking, but you must also want to stop. It is in the decision that much help and support to cease the habit, is going to be very potent. Nothing can happen if you don’t cooperate from wanting to quit. Diabetes will affect the heart, the kidneys, the eyes among many other organs and smoking will affect them directly leading to many complications. The worst I can think of is the damage to the kidneys. If that happens, you could be on dialysis, which is not only incorrigibly expensive but the whole process and frequency is very, very tedious. Please give this a serious thought and stop immediately and abruptly. It will be difficult but it is worth the effort. This knowledge and there are more frightful information that is astounding and scary. That information itself should help you stay out of it. The tobacco tar in cigarette smoke lines your lung with huge patches that make that portion dysfunctional. Your oxygen carrying capacity is jeopardized, and breathing is impinged. The nicotine in tobacco smoke stimulates the heart beat to raise the blood pressure in no time at all. And one of its effects is to affect the erectile capacity of your penis. There are more than 4000 harmful chemicals in cigarette smoke!!! Then you need to identify why you smoke: there is an oral need, the nicotine effect, the psychological effect of covering up some other issue, for style, to impress, etc. You may discover that the reasons may be unimportant at this stage because you have become too addicted and the habit has become compulsive. You should start exercises, gradually increasing it over a period of time. Do deep breathing exercises every time you feel like smoking (try Yoga), and replace the oral urge with some healthy food substitute to satiate the need, for a little while. If the urge is too strong, then use nicotine chewing gum or nicotine patches, for a little while until the smoking drive reduces, substantially. You may join Smokers Anonymous in your city where the support is really extraordinary for like-minded people who are also in the same situation. Keep yourself occupied or engaged with interesting activities during the times when it is most tempting. Keep the company of non-smokers for some time i.e. at least for the first 21 days. Above all, announce it to everyone that you have quit smoking. Here’s a piece of very good advice: even if you accidentally/willfully take a cigarette, it is not the end of the world – you can start the cessation all over again. You must persevere with the best support until you defeat this addiction. Counseling is very useful in the initial stages, and when temptations are at their highest.

Dear Lybrate user. Every person is unique and every person has unique character, behavior pattern etc. If you are feeling negative about anybody's character, so be it. Why worry about it. When you want to interact with that person, keep in mind, that you will be a little bit careful. Being judgmental is never bad. Take care.

Hi lybrate-user, If you have lost a loved one, the following tips may help you cope with the loss: •Let yourself feel the pain and all the other emotions, too. Don’t tell yourself how to feel or let others tell you how you should feel. •Be patient with the process. Don’t pressure yourself with expectations. Accept that you need to experience your pain, your emotions, and your own way of healing − all in your own time. Don’t judge your emotions or compare yourself to others. Remember that no one else can tell you how you should mourn or when to stop. •Acknowledge your feelings, even the ones you don’t like. Let yourself cry. You need to do both for healing. •Get support. Talk about your loss, your memories, and your experience of the life and death of your loved one. Don’t think you are protecting your family and friends by not expressing your sadness. Ask others for what you need. Find and talk to others who have lost a loved one. •Try to maintain your normal lifestyle. Don’t make any major life changes (for example, moving, changing jobs, changing important relationships) during the first year of bereavement. This will let you keep your roots and some sense of security. •Take care of yourself. Eat well and exercise. Physical activity is a good way to release tension. Allow yourself physical pleasures that help you renew yourself, like hot baths, naps, and favorite foods. •Avoid drinking too much alcohol or using other drugs. This can harm your body as well as dull your emotions. It’s also likely to slow your recovery and may cause new problems. •Forgive yourself for all the things you did or didn’t say or do. Compassion and forgiveness for yourself and others is important in healing. •Give yourself a break from grief. You must work through it, but you don’t need to focus on grief all the time. Find distractions like going to a movie, dinner, or a ball game; reading a good book; listening to music; or getting a massage or manicure. •Prepare for holidays, birthdays, and anniversaries knowing that strong feelings may come back. Decide if you want to keep certain traditions or create new ones. Plan in advance how you want to spend your time and with whom. Do something to honor the memory of your loved one. •Join a bereavement support group. Other people can encourage, guide, and comfort you. They can also offer practical advice and information, and help you feel less alone. If you can’t find a group near you, online groups may be helpful. •When you feel ready, do something creative. Some options include: oWrite a letter to the person who died to say everything you wish you could say to them. OStart keeping a journal. OMake a scrapbook. OPaint pictures. OPlant flowers or trees. OInvolve yourself in a cause or activity that the deceased loved. You need to give some time for yourself and the process to work. It might affect your work but you keep calm. If you need any further guidance, we will be happy to help you.
