I am 21 year male and from the childhood itself I was affected a lot by abuse and fighting between my parents. I am very sensitive person and last year the girl I loved the most rejects me. I was so depressed. For the past few months I was lack in empathy. And I am feeling like a matured person. Does this a sign of maturity or sociopathy. But I had my love towards animals and kids. I think I lost my sensitivity. Does this good for me or not.

Everything should be in moderation including your sensitivity. You cannot be a sociopath for these reasons, so do not worry. You are a long way from maturity and that is an ongoing process. But you should meet with a counselor and talk about the disturbances you have experienced during your parents' fights and arguments from childhood. There could be some effects especially emotionally and that learning will help you a lot to become mature and handle yourself with composure. If these influences are affecting your relating to girls could also be identified and sorted out.

My cousins behaviour is very aggressive and impulsive? how to handle her? Please advise.
Agressive and impulsive behaviour can be calmed down to a large extent by not giving encourgemnt to the person who indulges. At the same time, a negative stimuls is given whenever there is such kind of action, and slowly it can come under control.

Hi. I' m a mother of a 1 year 5 month old daughter. She' s very cheerful and active. But one thing that is worrying all of us these days is that she' s not well attached to her dad. My husband feels very odd because of this. As and when she looks at him, she tightens her face and that shakes her face and fists. And she runs away whenever he tries to engage sometime with her. My husband is a very caring and loving father. But only that due to his work timings he doesn' t get much time to spend with her. But how can one fix this kind of issue? please help.

Dear . Your daughter is very young to understand anything more than simple caregiving and nurturing. She is more attached to those who are caring and nurturing. She soes not possess any other emotional feelings. Stranger anxiety is another prominent feature at thos age. Your husband may be loving, but that love and care should be shown to baby in such a manner where the child feels it as caring and affectionate. If required, I may provide telephone counseling to you and your husband. Take care.

Emotional problems, anxiety and depression during period are mental disorders and not mental diseases. They also happen due to hormonal imbalance. Therefore mental disorders can be cured with the help of psychotherapy, meditation, exercise and life style changes without medicines. Post a private question to me with every detail. I will help you. Take care.

Hello sir. I am very sorry for your loss. We all go through the process of mourning and have thoughts of those who have left us. We get distressed during the initial few months but gradually, we learn to accept our loss and cherish the fond memories. If we fight to block the thoughts, then this would trouble us more. Let the thoughts come, and. Let them go. Do not try to modify your experience. This will help in reducing your distress. You will gradually learn this, but keep trying. You can take deep and slow breaths, try yoga or other form of meditation to keep you relaxed. Keep doing your routine work. Do exercise. Eat healthy, sleep well. Avoid much of tea/coffee. Keep in touch with your family and friends. Just try to be" normal" with time, you will definitely get better. Please take care.

Dear Akshay, You need psychiatric help. Please consult for a proper diagnosis and treatment. Mostly depression occurs along with insomnia and anxiety. Panic attacks comes and goes like a passing cloud. Diurnal variation is one of the feature of a depressive disorder. That is why you are normal in the evenings.

Hi sir. My age Is 26 now. I have a problem of stammering. Because of the issue of stammering I can't able to speak good. It's dominated my career growth. Am had horrible experience in Day to day life. Today's situation fluent speak is more essential to live. U suffering from all the disability to speak properly. Can any one save me from this issue. Please help me. Suggest me any time of treatment or surgery regarding speaking problem.

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Chennai
Stammering is typically recognised by a tense struggle to get words out. This makes it different from the normal non-fluency we all experience which includes hesitations and repetitions. Commonly it involves repeating or prolonging sounds or words, or getting stuck without any sound (silent blocking). Sometimes people put in extra sounds or words. Often people lose eye contact. Some people who stammer talk their way round difficult words so that you may not realise they stammer at all. This avoidance of words, and avoidance of speaking in some or many situations, is an important aspect of stammering. Stammering varies tremendously from person to person and is highly variable for the person who stammers who may be fluent one minute and struggling to speak the next. Get an mri brain and eeg with a psychiatrist evaluation.

I not concentrate my study. 3 year ago. Operation brain is manegiatics disease. Pls. Help me. Soln in permanent above.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You will need to revert back with the surgeon to know if that operation has contributed to the lack of concentration. 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.

Dear lybrate-user it's good news that your sister recover well in comparison to last year, as far as next I will recommend you to consult any good clinical psychologist in your area and go for CBT which restructure your sister's cognitive thinking which not only help in Depression recovery but also improve personality and decision making habits so by this she will recover fully, but yes it take time like 6 months to one year.

Looks like she is not open to you,make her feel you are her best friend & she can discuss all with you. Talk to her a lot but avoid directing. In some time she will forget all recent past. Take care she is going through her teenage time when some wants real friend. In fact she is confused about all physical & psychological alterations in her life. Be her best friend all will be fine,mind it you should be honest not to share her talks with anyone.

There are so many medicines in the market. Allopathic, ayurvedic and e. T. C. But it is behavioural problem. When your mind is strong. You can control your thoughts. The mind status should be stable with the help of psychologist. Mind control it is permanent therapy. Medicine works for some time after that then the same status there is no usage. You are unable use continuously medicine. Then you feel some time alcohol is better than medicine. Short time medicine capability. Where as behaviour therapy is permanent method there is no side effects. It is total life style modification method. It is better to consult a very good psychologist in your area. Ok best of luck.
