You can do meditation, it lets you meet with yourself & gives you inner peace. Understand yourself, try to rule out your problems. And write it down. Think of positive solution for each problem, change your attitude towards it and go for change within yourself. Sometimes, negative thoughts appear due to circumstances, hormonal changes and many other reasons. Its ok to have negative thoughts at times, just ignore it and involve yourself in something creative or productive work.

Pervasive developmental disorder is a disorder of childhood. If it is present, it has to be present since childhood. As you say you are having it since last 03 months. So please explain in details what do you want to say. It is always better to describe your symptoms in detail, so that we can help you better.

I noticed that my memory IQ levels decreased and forgetting small issues. It is major problem or not. Is there any way to regain my memory power. Please help me.

PGDPC
Psychologist, Pune
Dear, the fact that you have noticed that your memory has decreased is a good thing. It is definitely not a problem and just and issue that can be tackled if you take the right steps. The simplest way to improve your memory is to be in the moment (be present consciously) most of the time in the events that we human beings pass through, either we think of the past and are troubled by it, or we are anxious about the future. This way we miss the beautiful moments that we are passing through. The way to resolve this is to be present in the moment, note what is happening to you and all around you through your senses, be a witness to all that is happening. To improve your memory you can also learn some pranayama techniques from a yoga practitioner. Some concentration and mental exercises like solving crossword puzzles and sukido, along with meditation and jappa will help you. I do hope I have been able to answer your queries.

I have continuously bad headache and I also have memory loss. Since 1995 please suggest what to do?
Dear , because you have not given any other symptoms other than headache and memory loss, the problem seems to be stress related. Tension means in one way anxiety or stress. You are aged 44. There could be many reasons to get stressed or to be anxious about. Stress is part of everyday life. We need know the stress and learn to live with it. Fighting the stress causes anxiety. Anxiety and apprehension further causes negative and obsessive thinking. Please let me know your stress and life pattern. I will help you overcome those areas with positive approach and cognitive therapy. Take care.

Hello sir, I am 27 year old male. I have a strange problem which suffers me a lot mentally. My thoughts are not healthy and not constant. It seems my mind habituated to think negatively in every single thought. Give a situation, my mind use to think of negative side of it. May be this is the reason why i am very low in confidence and i am not able memorize what i read. Also i am not as energetic as others who are of my age. I am always dull and could not concentrate on anything. Please suggest any remedies. Thank you

We are all creatures of habit. If you form a regular pattern of thinking in the negative, then that is what you will tend to do. Perhaps it gives you satisfaction to be negatively oriented. Of course this will make you miserable because you are so focused on what is not there than what is there. You must now cultivate a positive outlook. Willfully chose to see the good side of things in life. This is a practice that will get perfect over a period of time, if you are consistent. You can see that it is demoralizing you, and you are suffering from memory problems. I have some exercises that will help. Exercise the positive by talking to someone and ask them to confront you each time you focus on the negative aspect. I don?t know if you are critical too. That will cause a social problem of isolation because people will not like to be with you or befriend you. This will then disturb you and make you more negative ? a vicious circle. Is this a family trait or where there influences in your upbringing that has contributed to this tendency. If so, work with a counselor to find the cause and to deal with it.

Alcohol and Mental health :How alcohol affects the brain and the varying mental health side effects that can result from excessive drinking

Masters in Clinical Psychology
Psychologist, Lucknow
Alcohol and Mental health :How alcohol affects the brain and the varying mental health side effects that can result f...

1. Alcohol alters your brain chemistry

The relaxed feeling you can get when you have that first drink is due to the chemical changes alcohol has caused in your brain. For many of us, a drink can help us feel more confident and less anxious. That's because it's starting to depress the part of the brain we associate with inhibition.

But, as you drink more, more of the brain starts to be affected. It doesn't matter what mood you're in to start with, when high levels of alcohol are involved, instead of pleasurable effects increasing, it's possible that a negative emotional response will take over. You could become angry, aggressive, anxious or depressed.

2. Alcohol can actually increase anxiety and stress rather than reduce it

Unfortunately reaching for a drink won't always have the effect you're after.
While a glass of wine after a hard day might help you relax, in the long run, it can contribute to feelings of depression and anxiety and make stress harder to deal with. This is because regular, heavy drinking interferes with neurotransmitters in our brains that are needed for good mental health.

When we drink, we narrow our perception of a situation and don't always respond to all the cues around us. If we're prone to anxiety and notice something that could be interpreted as threatening in the environment, we'll hone in on that and miss the other less threatening or neutral information. For example, we might focus on our partner talking to someone we're jealous of, rather than notice all the other people they've been chatting to that evening.

3. Alcohol depression = a vicious cycle

If you drink heavily and regularly you're likely to develop some symptoms of depression. It's that good old brain chemistry at work again. Regular drinking lowers the levels of serotonin in your brain - a chemical that helps to regulate your mood.

Drinking heavily can also affect your relationships with your partner, family, and friends. It can impact on your performance at work. These issues can also contribute to depression. If you use drink to try and improve your mood or mask your depression, you may be starting a vicious cycle.

4. Alcohol is linked to suicide, self-harm, and psychosis

Alcohol can make people lose their inhibitions and behave impulsively, so it can lead to actions they might not otherwise have taken - including self-harm and suicide. Extreme levels of drinking (such as more than 30 units per day for several weeks) can occasionally cause 'psychosis'. It's a severe mental illness where hallucinations and delusions of persecution develop. Psychotic symptoms can also occur when very heavy drinkers suddenly stop drinking and develop a condition known as 'delirium tremens' - symptoms include body tremors and confusion.

5. Alcohol can damage your memory

Soon after drinking alcohol, your brain processes slow down and your memory can be impaired. After large quantities of alcohol, the brain can stop recording into the 'memory store'. That's why you can wake up the next day with a 'blank' about what you said or did and even where you were. This short-term memory failure or 'black out' doesn’t mean that brain cells have been damaged, but frequent heavy sessions can damage the brain because of alcohol's effect on brain chemistry and processes.

Drinking heavily over a long period of time can also have long-term effects on memory. Even on days when you don't drink any alcohol, recalling what you did yesterday, or even where you have been earlier that day, become difficult.

Does panic disorder and bipolar disorder is same? Or does panic disorder leads to bipolar disorder in future? Plse rply and explain me coz I'm scared as I'm having panic disorder.

Dear lybrate-user. Panic disorder is neurotic and purely based on anxiety. Panic disorder and bipolar disorder are not the same and panic disorder never leads to bipolar disorder. Panic disorder treatment consists of cognitive behavioral therapy, life style changes, relaxation therapy and meditation. Once you learn how to manage your anxiety yourself with the help of the above treatment methods, you will be cured. The process could take some time according to the depth of the problem and the circumstances at which the patient lives. Prepare yourself to take up the treatment and consult a psychologist

It looks like she is smarting after the breakup. I think that you should move on rather quickly and for that you need to take some measures. You must deal with all your feelings you had around her and clear it out of your system. Remove all the gifts, reminders of her, and give it away or destroy them. Avoid places, situations, companions, and occasions that you two used to frequent, at least for some time. Meet a lot with other friends whom you might have neglected all these months and renew the contacts all over again. Please do not bad mouth her to anyone and just say that we broke up for some good reasons and you are okay with that. Start an exercise regimen and get on with your studies, and career building, with a renewed vigor. Do not get into another relationship as yet, and if the feelings for this girl continue to haunt you, please meet with a counselor and share them with that person. In time this will all be history and you will be happy you moved on.

What is the reason of either stress incontinence or urgency incontinence ? Is there any medicine for it or exercises can resolve the problem?

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
What is the reason of either stress incontinence or urgency incontinence ? Is there any medicine for it or exercises ...
Stress incontinence is the unintentional or uncontrollable leakage of urine. In other words, the inability to control your urge to urinate in certain circumstances. It is a serious and embarrassing disorder, which can lead to social isolation. Stress incontinence typically occurs when certain kinds of physical movement puts pressure on your bladder. Laughing, sneezing, coughing, jumping, vigorous exercise, and heavy lifting can all cause stress incontinence. Any pressure placed on the abdomen and bladder can lead to the loss of urine.Urge incontinence occurs when you have a sudden urge to urinate. In urge incontinence, the bladder contracts when it shouldn’t, causing some urine to leak through the sphincter muscles holding the bladder closed.Kegel exercises are usually the first treatment option for urinary incontinence. The process strengthens the muscles involved in urination, specifically the pelvic floor muscles. Try contracting the pelvic floor for 5 to 10 seconds, and then rest for the same amount of time. Contracting the pelvic floor is the same as when you stop the flow of urine midstream. If you’re unsure if you’re doing it correctly, try stopping your urine midstream. Doing a Kegel exercise should replicate that sensation of stopping your urine.

Dear user. You are already 26 and you have enough experience and capacity to think logically and conclusively. You are not in a dilemma but in a confusion. Open your mind. Write down the pros and cons of the presented situations in front of you. Then select the one which is most rewarding, promising and peaceful. Otherwise, I suggest online counseling. Take care.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. The duty of your mind is to think and imagine. If you are unable to provide meaningful and creative tasks to your mind, it is quite natural that the mind will wander away. Wandering mind always ventures into negative and obsessive territory. You need to provide creative and meaningful tasks to your mind so as to keep it engaged. Physical exercises, outdoor games, entertainment, socialization, active reading, active listening etc helps keeping your mind engaged. I suggest online mind power learning. Take care.

I don't know when this first love of yours broke up with you but you must learn to move on especially since you need to concentrate in your studies. There are still many girls you will meet because you are so young. If you get so affected by this girl how will you manage in another circumstance? You need to get on with your life and focus on your studies. If you are serious you can do that with the following suggestions: 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
