You need to consult a psychiatrist. You seem to have classical anxiety symptoms. Anxiety is due to altered serotonergic system in the brain, and can very well treated with medications, All the best.

Dear, welcome to lybrate. You must be able to understand concentration, attention span, recollection and distraction. If you are able to watch a movie for two hours continuously, if you are able to play a game for an hour, then you do not have any concentration problems. You can't be attentive towards your studies because you are not interested in it. You are able to watch movie and play game because you are interested in it. Human cannot be attentive towards anything for more than 10 minutes. If the task is boring, it is natural that that person will sleep or feel sleepy. Then you should study in such a way that your attention is continued and make the subjects are interesting to you. Effective learning techniques should help you. Recollection depends on anxiety, stress and other physical and circumstantial factors. Distractions while studying are plentiful. You should be able to overcome distractions or avoid distractions. Please understand the above. Change your study style and attitude accordingly. Take care.

I can imagine, how difficult it must have been for you to continue life without that person. Have you expressed your sadness, grief? please talk to someone about how you feel after losing this person. Talk about your pain of losing that person. Otherwise your suppressed sadness and pain will develop into more negative thoughts and feelings. You will find it difficult to take rational decisions and you will experience additional stress. The more you talk about the lost person and the more you talk about your pain, more is the cognitive acceptance which will help you to move ahead in life" grieving" is a process, not something to'get over' with. And as part of this process, you need to experience the pain. If you don't express your feelings, the grieving process is retarded and the feelings are internalised which manifest themselves in somatic pains like headaches, body aches etc without a good reason. I understand your pain but loss is an integral part of life. It is not something that happens to us as we live, it is life itself. Understand that life will never be the same again for you but there is life ahead, for you. And this life can be good, with purpose and meaningful. Nothing of what is lost is replaced. A meaningful part of an identity and time is never replaced. Give yourself enough time to feel and experience the pain. But then you need to move on. Resolution does not mean forgetting. You will cherish that person's memories for the rest of your life. But you need to learn to" let go" of that relation you had with the person and move on. It is not very easy. But this if life. Take care.

I feel you are unnecessarily worked on a single girl and you are only 21 years. I think she is laid cak type and may not suit your mental make up when you look for serious life partner. If you patiently woit you will get someone of your interest and not his girl and you have present relation though not serious as life & death case. Relax

I want to increase my height. Sir Mujhe bohot saram aati h. mai isliye kahi bahar Jana v band kr diya h me na chahte ...
Dear, aapki problem ne kaafi pareshan kiya hua hai aapko. Aapke liye apni height ko accept kar paana mushkil ho raha hai. Agar aam taur pe dekhe to 4 ft 10 in ki height kaafi hoti hai ladkiyo ke liye. Hindustan me ladkiyo ki samanya height 4 ft 3 in hoti hai. Is lihaaj se aapki height kaafi hai. Magar aksar aisa hota hai ki hum mansik taur pe alag aankalan lagate hain apni khoobiyo ya vyaktitv ka. Jaise aapme bahut see khoobiya hongi. Maan lo aap padhai me 80 ank laate hain aksar. Par aapko aisa lagega ki ye kaafi nahi hain kyuki aapko kam se kam 95 ank chahiye. Zyadatar log shayad 60 ank hi la pate ho. Aap behtar hote huye bhi apne ko humesha kam mehsoos karoge kyuki aapko doosre aisa ehsaas dilate hain ki 80 ank kaafi nahi hain. Yeh kaaran aapne khud bhi bataya. Aap apni behen se tulna karte ho khud ki. Is karanvash aapko apni height 4 ft 10 in hote huye bhi kam lagti hai. Aapko apni behen se kee gayi tulna pasand nahi aati kyuki aapko usme bhed-bhaav dikhayi padta hai. Isliye aapka man har samay apni lambaayi ke sambandh me sochta rehta hai aur aap khud se khush nahi hain. Aapne army join karne ka bataya. Ho sakta hai ki army me selection na hone ka koi aur kaaran bhi ho. Par aap kyuki apni lambai ko apni kaamyabi ka adhaar maante ho isliye aapko lagta hai ki yehi kaaran hai jis vajah se aapka selection nahi hua. Aapko humesha se aisa bataya gaya hai ya aapne humesha aisa dekha hai ki lamba vyakti achha aur behtar hota hai. Lambi ladki bahut see khoobiya rakhti hai, aisa aapne samjha hai. Is vajah se aapne lambai ko apne vyaktitv ka adhaar bana liya hai. Jabki yeh sahi nahi hai. Aisa maanna ya aisa samajhna galat hai. Kayi kaarno se aisa sochna galat hai. Pehla to ye ki lambai se vyakti ke charitra ka pata nahi chalta. Doosra, Lambai hi keval ek maatra adhaar nahi vyakti ke moolya ko pehchaanne ka. Teesra, Lambai chhota ya zyada hona kisi ke haath me nahi. Ye genetic nature pe nirbhar karta hai. Aapko samajhna hoga ki lambai badhane se aaj aap khush reh sakte ho par kuch time baad aap fir nirasha mehsoos karoge. Aise me behtar hota hai ki hum sweekar kar le apne vyaktitv, roop aur charitr ko. Anyatha bevajah hi hum apne man ko dukhi karenge. Aapki lambai ek had tak hi badh sakti hai aur uska vikas ab 20 varsh ki aayu me poora ho chuka hai. Isse zyada ye aur nahi badh sakti. So aise me behtar yehi hoga ki aap sweekar kar le aur apne man ko doosro ki tulna se door karen. Apne man me lambai ke vicharo ko na aane de aur agar man nahi maanta to aap kisi counselor se paramarsh le. Aapko mazboot banne ki zarurat hai aur doosri khoobiyo pe dhyan dene ki aavshyakta hai. Aapme aur bhi bahut see khoobiya hogi jo aapki behen me nahi hain. Unpar dhyan do aur dekho ki aap bhi behtar ho. Army na sahi, koi aur profession chun sakte ho aap. Ya aap dobara apply karo army ke liye. Lambai ko apni zindagi mat banao. Ye koi manzil nahi hai aapki.

Hi, Take homoeopathic medicine for increasing memory - Anacardium 200/ once daily. Management: -Meditate for at least 15 to 30 minutes each day physically changes your brain, making you less anxious, and more rational and empathetic. -Besides increasing your physical strength and flexibility, yoga changes your brain. Research suggests that in addition to reducing stress, anxiety, and depression, yoga protects the brain from shrinking with age. -Exercise daily as it would can help offset the cognitive decline brought on by aging and increasingly sedentary lifestyles. -Get enough sleep. On average, adults need between 7.5 and 9 hours of sleep each night. When you aren’t getting enough sleep, it affects your brain’s ability to do this, and your memory suffers. -Spend time with people whose company you enjoy, and who make you feel like the best version of you. -laughter can improve short-term memory in older adults. -Cutting down on your use of technology (i.e. Sitting in front of your computer, phone, or tablet) for even 30 minutes can improve your brain health and help you think more deeply.

Hello, For Pink Stretch Marks: You can massage gently any good brand oil containing more percentage of vitamin E like olive oil, coconut oil, egg oil, bio-oil twice and aloe vera daily, but after completion of 1&1/2 months of giving birth (if the delivery was normal) or after 4 months (in case of caesarean section that too depends upon the condition of the stitches and the area). Make sure you are eating a nutrient based diet. Make sure that your skin is getting the proper nutrition so that it can repair and stay healthy. Drink enough water (2 litres daily), as the skin loses its elasticity when you are dehydrated. Being at a healthy weight also helps. Use Vaseline, or petroleum jelly to keep the skin moisturized. Can take vitamin C & E orally. *******************If the stretch marks are white in colour, then you will have to opt for Laser which can only help you to reduce it to some extent only**************************

I cry a lot. Whenever i get angry, i cry. I can't control that. Is that a depression?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Do you cry when you are sad also? If you didn?t I would be surprised. Anyway what you are doing is called ?feeling substitution. For some reason you have had no permission to be or express anger; or you have had a bad experience when you expressed anger and it had backfired on you; or you may have a wrong concept that anger is bad; or you may think that anger leads to bad consequences. All or any of these reasons could have made you substitute anger with grief. That way you do not have to deal with the feeling and you could invite the sympathy of people around you. Anger is a pure energy feeling. People therefore mistakenly think that they need to act violent, aggressive or do some damage as an act of its expression. This fallacy has lead to so many unnecessary and very harmful outcomes, unfortunately. In fact anger is a good feeling that must be expressed but can be done calmly, gently and comfortably. Yes, people do not like to see someone angry because of them but that does not mean you need to avoid the feeling altogether. I suggest you talk to someone about this and explore feeling the anger and expressing it to see, if your fears are justified. You will be surprised. Many times that I have expressed anger legitimately and appropriately, I have invited so much of respect instead. You are certainly not depressed, if other factors remain normal.

Mr. lybrate-user, I think you should meet somebody and discuss your thoughts. It could be just apprehensions about future or it could be ruminating about something on a daily basis. U should try to distract urself and try to schedule your routine in order to concentrate on studies. In sons cases medication is also required depending on the diagnosis.

Dear , schizophrenia has different forms and less than 10% cases are hereditary. You need to talk to the psychiatrist who is treating the patient and inquire about the hereditary aspect. Secondly, I suggest you not to carry such doubts in your mind. If your son likes the girl, let them marry and lead a happy life. Future will be taken care of by them. Take care.

If your issue is about lack of concentration, that may because of boredom and monitony of same things for which you may have lost interest in studies. Hence you need to change the pattern of studying or take a break. You may want to check if there are other problems in your life that are bothering you and may be of more concern whcih is why you may be unable to concentrate. Take breaks while studying. Give yourself some credit which you complete a goal in study whcih will keep you motivated. Try doing some physical exercise to keep your mind and body fresh. Change time of studies. If you used to study at night. Start studying in the morning from now. Do not study when in your bed ir dinning table. Have a proper chair to study. Sitting on the same bed that you sit may make you feel sleepy or tired as your emotions are connected to that same place.

Depression - Is it Curable?

MBBS, Diploma in Psychological Medicine
Psychiatrist, Kolkata
Depression - Is it Curable?

Depression is recognized as a mood disorder characterized by the prolonged feeling of sadness and loss of interest in otherwise regular activities. The symptoms include loss of sleep and appetite, loss of interest, persistent feeling of sadness and lowered self-esteem. These symptoms should last for a minimum of 4 weeks for the individual to be diagnosed with depression. Sometimes, at its later stages, depression can also be accompanied by suicidal tendencies.

How it can be treated?

  1. Role of anti-depressants: Depression has become rather common in the present day scenario. The treatment varies from prescription drugs to therapy. People who have depression are usually given mood enhancers and anti-depressants. Antidepressants are medicines used to help people who have depression. With the help of these depression medications, most people can achieve significant recovery from depression. Most antidepressants are believed to work by slowing the removal of certain chemicals from the brain. These chemicals are called neurotransmitters (such as serotonin and norepinephrine). Neurotransmitters are needed for normal brain function and are involved in the control of mood and in other responses and functions, such as eating, sleep, pain, and thinking. Antidepressants help people with depression by making these natural chemicals more available to the brain. By restoring the brain’s chemical balance, antidepressants help relieve the symptoms of depression. Specifically, antidepressant drugs help reduce the extreme sadness, hopelessness, and lack of interest in life that are typical in people with depression. However, these are but short-term solutions to depression and don’t necessarily cure the individual completely. For the treatment to be effective, the drug intake must be combined with therapeutic techniques to solve the problem at the root level.
  2. Therapy: Different therapeutic techniques are used to treat depression depending majorly on the individual, the cause of depression and general history and state of mind. Research suggests that client centered therapy and cognitive behavioral therapy are a good start with an average case of depression. The therapists usually incorporate several other methods based on the client’s need to get maximum effect. Adlerian techniques, where individuals are made to comprehend the thoughts and emotions which influence their lifestyles and adopt a more productive and positive way of life, are rather helpful with most clients who suffer from depression.

Note
Depression is a fairly common mental health disorder today, affecting a large population. Depression must be acknowledged as a proper mood disorder and not just a passing phase. It is completely curable with proper medicine and therapeutic sessions. The individual is able to move over the feelings of unhappiness and lack of interest with proper care and acceptance from loved ones in addition to therapy and the drugs, of course. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.
