People with Myocardial Infarction (Heart attack), can be depressed. But his physical condition and cardiac condition needs to be known and depressive symptoms further elaborated to suggest an appropriate antidepressant, which would most likely show significant improvement in his depressive symptoms. Kindly consult a psychiatrist for remedy. All the best.

Yes, there are possible side-effects when using buprenorphine and you must at all times keep your doctor informed and get treated for the same. You may talk to your doctor and find out the possible effects depending on the dosage you are taking. Please work along with your doctor int his matter and I hope you are also seeking addiction counseling as well.

Masturbation is a healthy form of sexual outlet, only compulsive maturation, when u neglect ur other work and keep indulging in it is a disorder. remove ur guilt about masturbatory practises. Worldwide more than 95% of men and 70% of Women masturbate. Many men continue to masturbate even after marriage, which is not wrong, as the pleasure given by masturbation is different from sex. Many married women also masturbate, when they are not able to achieve orgasm from sex with spouse and when they are not sexually gratified. So get these facts right and remove the guilt and get on with ur work, and masturbate when u feel like.

I have a problem of getting anger so much on some one. What I want to do to stop it.

Dear lybrate-user, 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. You 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, you will not get irritated at those circumstances at all. Those techniques are much easier to understand. Take care.

Your mind is wandering because of the effect of the male sex hormone, testosterone. This will clear up in exactly two years but you must conduct yourself well. Meet with a counselor and get some help. You must learn to study smart than to study hard and too much. Academic pressures nowadays are very high and many kids are succumbing to it in many stress-related ways. It is really important to bring in some efficiently to study and reduce the pressure. With regard to memory, it is very important that your brain and body is rested well to be able to recall whatever is required, rather comfortably. So, catch a good 8 hours of sleep every night. 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 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, 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. You may also meet with a counselor to take care of the stress related emotions, and then you will fare better too.

How should I behave with my life partner? We quarrel regularly for no reason. Whenever she raises her voice I decrease mine.

Surely there is solution. Presently you both are" talking" but you both are not" listening" what the other person has to say. Typically with newly married couples, what happens is, both have certain expectations from their spouse, but they do not voice these expectations and expect their spouse to" understand" it on their own. At the same time, what meaning each person is making from the other's actions/remarks also differs - e. G. If the wife says" why are you late again today? the husband thinks she is suspicious or nagging. But what she actually wants to convey is" I want you to come back on time, so that I can spend more time with you" and if the wife is talking to her husband and if the husband is busy watching tv or reading news paper, the wife assumes that she is not important for him, tv/paper is more important, which may not be so. So please remember that most of the relationship issues are because of lack of communication and listening skills. You both please try to learn some communications and listening skills. Learn to express your needs and understand other's needs. It will help you a lot. In the absence of good communication and listening skills, you both will not be able to have any other good relationship. Even if you both decide to leave each other now, you will have similar problems later on, with another person. So the best way is, to understand and accept that you both have come from different homes/backgrounds so you will have clashes because you will have different opinions, perceptions, values expectations etc. If required talk to a counsellor. You both need to work together to make this relationship work. All the best.

I can't concentrate on my studies. Even can not remember anything. What to do. Exams are ahead. Please help me.

Natural concentration is when the mind can hold a thought for a long time, when thoughts are under our own control. Without concentration the mind goes here, there and everywhere, jumping like a monkey from branch to branch, idea to idea. When there is a natural concentration, we can control our mind and there is peace. This one-pointed concentration on a thought, holding it for as long as we like, gradually collects strength in the mind and in the self. A strong mind is a mind that is peaceful, stable, satisfied and can remain in the deeper meaning of a thought. There is no waste caused by over-thinking, or the high speed of thought: These are the two greatest diseases of the mind these days, which is why there is so much stress and mental breakdown. Stress can foil concentration and learning ability. Although concentration is different to memory, they can affect each other. Concentration precedes memory. If you are under stress your concentration will go for a toss, then naturally memory will be totally foiled. So meet with a counselor to take care of the stress and your memory will happily return. You can follow these simple rules in the meantime: Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber, nuts, avocado, exercise regularly, eat dark chocolate, 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. 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. 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. 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 all junk food.

Are You Overwhelmed - Secrets To Help You Manage It!

Are You Overwhelmed - Secrets To Help You Manage It!

Sometimes when a person has too much on their plate, they are left feeling overwhelmed and stressed out. Here are a few ways in which you can manage being overwhelmed and return to a place of control, contentment and relaxation.

  1. Venture out: Trying to work and get your tasks done despite your confusion and feeling of helplessness will not lead you anywhere. You need to step away to have the capacity to see your conditions from a new point of view. Move to an alternate room, get up from your work area, sit on a different couch, go out for a walk or go sit at a bistro. Venturing out from the present circumstance and changing your physical surroundings will help you gain clarity, and move you far from the overwhelming perspective. This is when you can see the solution more clearly.
  2. Vent it out: When you are occupied, it is very easy to lose any feeling and sense of priority and the panic makes everything seem urgent. In reality, there will be things that may require your consideration for a brief span. Hence, the key thing is to have clarity and gain visibility on what you are managing. Attempt a "mind download", where you record everything, with the goal that you can figure out what is obstructing your brain and its functioning.
  3. Requesting help and allowing help: You would be surprised at what number of individuals will offer assistance. Usually, our limited thinking is because we become a problem for ourselves as we disallow others to help us. Sometimes we also think they will say no, thus we do not ask for help. Simply try it out. Request help, and get ready to be surprised at the generosity you might get from others.
  4. Phase out noise: When we feel overwhelmed, it feels soothing to do something to loosen up and relax, such as watching the TV, listening to music, watching the news or playing a game. What we overlook during this time is that the additional data that comes in clutters our mind that further tangles our already overwhelmed senses.
  5. Make continuous improvements: Concentrate on one area at a time. Question yourself: what kind of change would be good for you? Concentrate on little, easy-to-do portions, not an instant upgrade. Say, your employment. Experiment with ten minutes of a sustaining pace. Appreciate how that feels. At that point expand on it. Check whether your well being moves forward. Try to feel positive energy in the bargain.

Treat the sentiment of overwhelming nervousness as a companion, for it is an indicator telling us that we have to slow down. It tells us to readjust our centre of focus and prioritise something else that makes us feel positive and better.

Dear lybrate-user, first and most sleep early wake up early at 4.0 am and study with fresh mind, of course subjects which you are not interested you must spend more time and repeat it many times" practice makes perfect" not only human including pets. Parrots are talking and dogs are dancing. Switch off mobile phone when you go to bed and switch it on at 6am some people they don't like mathematics but it is essential for life everyday and every time we are depended on mathematics, right from doctor to business man, including vegetable seller, we can understand many other distraction disturbed minds it is like love issues.

You need to focus on your social development skills, or the lack of it. You may have neglected this all your life or may come from a home where these skills are absent or poor. Fortunately because you are young you can improve on it soon. The final test of any personality is in the social context: what happens to you when you are with people? the next big test is when you are with members of the opposite sex. And the ultimate test of a personality is when you bed and board with a member of the opposite sex in marriage. You describe problems in two of these areas and must attend to it soon. You can start by attending a personality development course. You can also do a conversational skills course, a public speaking skills course, elocution course, and attend the toastmasters club. You may also meet with a counselor and learn about emotions and how to handle them appropriately. You may also have a poor self image, self esteem, self-confidence for various reasons; which may also be worked out with a counselor. While you are doing all this please frequent meetings, conferences, social clubs, participate in group games, seminars, get-togethers, parties, etc. You need to start gradually and build up as you pcik up the confidence. Also one big mistake we men make is that when we meet a girl we tend to think and see it a a sexual encounter unnecessarily. This will immediately complicate the simple meetings and bring in all kinds of unsavory elements into it. Be very conscious of this and willfully dispel this influence and learn to be cool.

It seems like your husband may be having a problem with the responsibility of looking after a baby. Some men are like that who get easily put off or intimidated by the prospect of having a child. You must take him and visit a counselor and get this sorted out. If he is drinking and coming late, I suspect that he may be drowning his'sorrows' but could inadvertently get into addictive levels. In fact thisis hte time you need maximum support and need to be in a calm and composed temperament. This could even jeopardize the health of the unborn child because of your suffering. If he does not change, I suggest that you go to your parent's' place to deliver the child. You could also approach his parents to find out if they can intervene effectively. He may also be in bad company who could do a lot of influnence to take him away from his responsibilities. Do not let this be and your actions may prove to be healthy for your new family and that of your child.

Hi lybrate-user, I believe your mother has undergone some surgery or medical procedure in past and mycophenolate is an immunosuppresant given for the same, she probably has adjustment disorder and might need an SSRI for the same. Since you are in mumbai, go to the psychiatrist who is senior and has experience in geriatric patients, I believe your mother will be all right, best of luck.
