I am 20 years old students. Many a times if feel so much anger that I am not able to control that. Can you please suggest me what to do to cope up with this.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You need to identify why you get so angry. If this is a recent phenomenon, then it will be easy to identify what caused that disturbance and it can be sorted out. If it is from your childhood and you have suffered this reaction for a long time, then you will need to go back into childhood and find out what went wrong to make you so upset. Your parents will be able to help locate the cause. You can then go to a counselor and learn about anger management, which is not to control your anger but to learn to express it in appropriate ways. You must also examine yourself to see if you act angry whenever you are scared. This then means that you have chosen to escalate anger over your fear for some reason: it may have to do with feeling more powerful with anger than with fear or you may have received more attention by acting angry. Work on these issues and come out of this behavior through some counseling.

Dear, Welcome to lybrate. Anger and aggression are emotions. Anger comes when you become irritated. Irritation happens when you don't like something, or when something is repeated. As anger is an emotion, it should be vent out. Your friend should be able to throw anger out instead of controlling it. But more perfect will be, know the frustrating situations and stop being emotional. If practiced properly, your friend will not get irritated at those circumstances at all. Those techniques are much easier to understand. Please consult a psychologist online or in person for further advice. Take care.

I am 21 years old and still nobody is treating me matured. How to improve this situation Also I can't concentrate on things. Like buy something means I go out and forget. Maybe due to this also a reason?

General Physician,
You have to talk and and act like a mature person , take confidence in talking and behave in mature way .7 Ways to Remember Anything Research-based strategies to boost your memory and keep it strong 7 Strategies for Remembering 1.Become interested in what you're learning. We're all better remembering what interests us. Few people, for example, have a difficult time remembering the names of people they find attractive. If you're not intrinsically interested in what you're learning or trying to remember, you must find a way to become so. 2.Find a way to leverage your visual memory. You'll be surprised by how much more this will enable you to remember. For example, imagine you're at a party and are introduced to five people in quick succession. How can you quickly memorize their names? Pick out a single defining visual characteristic of each person and connect it to a visual representation of their name, preferably through an action of some kind. Remember: Memory is predominantly visual. 3.Create a mental memory tree. If you're trying to memorize a large number of facts, find a way to relate them in your mind visually with a memory tree. Construct big branches first, then leaves. Branches and leaves should carry labels that are personally meaningful to you in some way, and the organization of the facts ("leaves") should be logical. 4.Associate what you're trying to learn with what you already know. It seems the more mental connections we have to a piece of information, the more successful we'll be in remembering it. This is why using mnemonics. Write out the items to be memorized over and over and over. 5.When reading for retention, summarize each paragraph in the margin. This requires you to think about what you're reading, recycle it, and teach it to yourself again. Even take the concepts you're learning and reason forward with them; apply them to imagined novel situations, which creates more neural connections to reinforce the memory. 6.Do most of your studying in the afternoon. Though you may identify yourself as a "morning person" or "evening person" at least one Study. Suggests your ability to memorize isn't influenced as much by what time of day you perceive yourself to be most alert but by the time of day you actually study—afternoon appearing to be the best. 7.Get adequate sleep to consolidate and retain memories. Not just at night after you've studied but the day, you study as well. Far better to do this than to stay up cramming all night for an exam.

Tremors, feeling anxious or nervous, sense of panic, sweating, increased heartbeat, feeling of impending doom, stomach discomfort, dizziness etc are signs of anxiety. These can be debilitating. If the anxiety us overwhelming, consult a psychiatrist at the earliest. With the right medication and counseling, it is likely your symptoms will improve. Other than that, try yoga, deep breathing, meditation, moderate exercise, progressive muscular relaxation and guided meditation. If you are feeling hopeless or suicidal consult a psychiatrist immediately.

Is it medically possible to erase a bad incident from your memory. And if it happened because of your own mistake and now you are unable to accept that you could do such a filthy act? I am regretting it badly. It's been a month and I cry for almost whole day, daily! I just can't accept that I did the act. Sometimes I feel like killing myself. Is there any way to completely erase it from my memory. I can not feel anything. No happiness no excitement nothing. I have lost interest in everything I do. I don't care if I am driving watching movie or bathing I keep thinking about that mistake over and over again and now I can't undo it. I don't feel hunger or thirst. I don't enjoy anything. Not even the things I was excited about before, I just keep on thinking about that mistake. I want to run away. I am completely detached from this world and I think about my mistake for every moment of the day, its out if my control to stop the thought and there is no relief. I just want to die. I don't know for how long I can handle it. Is there any way to relieve my pain. Can doctors erase that event from my brain? Can I get relief by any therapy? Can you help me forget that incident like it never happened? Can you take away that part of my life? Please?

Dear Lybrate user. You must understand repression. Your mind itself is capable to erase a memory which is painful or causing anxiety and worries. If it has not done, according to your mind, the memories are not that painful. In modern medicine, there are no medicines which can erase memories. But many medicines are there which can help you reduce those thoughts. Hypnotherapy can help remove the memories. Take care.

Frequent repetition is the best remedy for sharping your memory. Practice meditating for 10 mins a day and then gradually augment the duration. Do this every morning, evening and just before you retire.

Hi lybrate-user, that can be really worked on through psychotherapy and counseling. To start with practice Mindful Breathing The primary goal of mindful breathing is simply a calm, nonjudging awareness, allowing thoughts and feelings to come and go without getting caught up in them. Sit comfortably, with your eyes closed and your spine reasonably straight. Bring your attention to your breathing. Imagine that you have a balloon in your tummy. Every time you breathe in, the balloon inflates. Each time you breathe out, the balloon deflates. Notice the sensations in your abdomen as the balloon inflates and deflates. Your abdomen rising with the in-breath, and falling with the out-breath. Thoughts will come into your mind, and that’s okay, because that’s just what the human mind does. Simply notice those thoughts, then bring your attention back to your breathing. Likewise, you can notice sounds, physical feelings, and emotions, and again, just bring your attention back to your breathing. You don’t have to follow those thoughts or feelings, don’t judge yourself for having them, or analyse them in any way. It’s okay for the thoughts to be there. Just notice those thoughts, and let them drift on by, bringing your attention back to your breathing. Whenever you notice that your attention has drifted off and is becoming caught up in thoughts or feelings, simply note that the attention has drifted, and then gently bring the attention back to your breathing. It's okay and natural for thoughts to enter into your awareness, and for your attention to follow them. No matter how many times this happens, just keep bringing your attention back to your breathing. Consult with me or any psychologist for therapy all the best.

Psychiatrist,

Dear this is called social phobia. If you do not feel confident in standing in public, difficulty in going at a place (like stage) where you are under scrutiny of others, if you are shying always and can not even converse properly in public, then it is already hampering your social life and ruining your confidence. You must take help of a psychiatrist/psychologist to get cured. I wish you all the best.

I am 34 years old and I have sore throat with body ache and stomach was also upset for last 3 days. What should I do.
Hello. For sore throat, need to follow the points: - Avoid cold things, fried/ oily food. -Avoid excessive use of voice/ roughly using voice or else shouting. - Gargle with salt and warm water solution thrice daily. - Take Ginger tea. - Avoid excessive cold air or sudden change of temperature (like coming from heat/ sunlight to an A/C room). - Can cover your throat with a stole. Take homoeopathic medications - Schwabe's Alpha- CF/ 1 tab. And SBL's Stodal cough lozenges – all of them thrice a day daily- for 3 days. Revert me back.

I am 37 years old male. I have antisocial personality disorder from last 3 months.

I am 37 years old male. I have antisocial personality disorder
from last 3 months.
I do not know whether you are aware of this term. You cannot have it for the last three months only: it must have been there for a long time and may not have gotten you into trouble yet. This is a very difficult condition to work with and unless you are genuinely committed, you may circumvent the system and therapy to unproductive ends. You must work with a counselor who is geared to treat this condition and is also equally committed to see you through. There will be an inadvertent tendency to go against norms, authority, parent figures and against people in general. There will be a strong need for negative excitement and some joy in fear and putting others in distress. These traits need to be monitored and confronted effectively for any meaningful outcomes. Do discuss these openly with the counselor and make contracts and accept firm consequences for failure on your part to comply. You have not mentioned in what areas you have been having problems but you must focus a lot of the therapy to handle those particular areas.

This is likely to happen due your age and hormonal imbalances. The growth hormone and male sex hormone testosterone will affect drowsiness and laziness. Once they have settled down to normalcy, you will return to a stable pattern of sleep. In the meantime do regular exercise, eat a lot of protein and calcium-based products, and live an active life.

Dear lybrate user, this is typical in a couple relationship. This happens because the boy and the girl belong to completely different families which have different values and beliefs. Both - the boy and the girl have certain expectations from their partner, which is a result of their own perception. When these expectations are not met, the problems in the relationship starts. It is advisable that either, you both or at least you yourself need to consult a counsellor for pri- marital counselling. The counsellor will do the needful. Please seek professional help, before getting married, irrespective of whether you remain in the same relationship or you want to move on.

I am facing memory loss problem. What to do?

Masters of Medical Sciences, Certificate of Completion of Higher Specialist Training, Member of Royal College of Psychiatrist, Professional and Linguistic Assessment Board, M.B.B.S
Psychiatrist,
I am facing memory loss problem. What to do?
Memory loss: it may one of commonest reason for consultation in india, with neurologist or a psychiatrist. This may be in part due our memory obsessed culture or rote learning educational method in which we grew up (including myself). Therefpre any percived short coming in memory problems will lead to early consultation. Other reason for poor memory: it may be due to nutritional deficiencies, especially as many in india are vegetarians. Nutritional deficiencies lead to anaemia (low haemoglobin) and vitamin b12 deficiency which can affect memory. Lifestyle is one big contributor especially stress, burnout, alcohol abuse, smoking, poor dietary habits and sleep disorder. Further we need to consider medical causes like hypertension, high cholesterol, heart & thyroid problems, dementia and other neurological conditions, which will depend on age on individual, their family history, lifestyle and fitness. I suggest you see a physicianmornpsychoatrist for evaluation mind and bodily causes of memory problems. They are likely to consider relevant blood test including vit b12 level and possible imaging study like ct brain or mri brain. Any treatment will depend on underlying cause.

Hello, Practicing yoga with homoeopathic medication helps you in releasing the stress from your body. Brisk walk in a park will help you inhale more fresh air and oxygen for good functioning of the cells and tissues of the body. Medication: Take Schwabe’s Bacopa Monierri 1x/ thrice daily and Kali Phos. 6x/ once at night. Yogasana: Practice the following poses if you don’t have any medical condition or pregnancy or else take an advice from your concern doctor and then only perform these. 1.Balasana: Sit on your heels with your big toes touching and hands resting on your thighs. Lower your belly and chest to rest between your knees, bringing your forehead to the floor. Relax your arms back beside your shins, palms facing up. Soften your breath by taking 5 to 10 long, deep inhalations and exhalations. 2.Savasana: lie back, letting your body sink into and open around the support. End in a supported pose on your back with a folded blanket under the length of the spine to help arch the upper and middle back, and lengthen the lower back. Move your arms a comfortable distance away from your body and anything else around you. Turn your palms to face up. Separate your legs a natural distance apart. Relax your feet and let them roll open. Finally, do a mental scan from head to toe: Where are you holding tension. Release it from every part of your body—including your heart and head. 3.Bhujanasana: Slowly slide forward from Child's Pose to lie facedown. Press your toes and forehead gently into the floor. Rest your palms lightly on the floor on either side of your chest with fingertips pointing forward and elbows bent and hugging in toward your ribcage. Inhale and lift your chest from the heart, pressing only very lightly into your palms and mostly using your back strength to hold your shoulders and chest up. Soften your shoulders. Then lift your hands off the floor completely, broadening across your collarbones and reaching your heart up. Take a couple of deep, slow breaths here. Then as you exhale, place your palms back down and gently lower your chest to floor.
