Dear lybrate-user, unfortunately people are still hesitant to go to a doctor when it comes to mental health. Going to a psychiatrist is still a taboo. If this is the issue, you may tell your mother that she can take an appointment with a counsellor. A counsellor is also a mental health professional and can help people with situational difficulties. Now a days people are becoming more open about visiting a counsellor. The counsellor will be able to understand if your mother needs some assessments and if she needs intervention by a psychiatrist. Your mother may be sad and feeling helpless or hopeless. The counselling process will give her an outlet to express herself which will help her. All the best.

I am a 18 year old student, sometimes I feel very unusual like hitting someone's face or breaking my stuff, I also have concentration problem, like whenever I try to study or focus on something my attention goes and I start thinking and dreaming about something else, for your convenience I add that I had a brain injury during my childhood which lead to swelling in my scalp that time.

Six hours of sleep is good enough, if you're having a sound sleep. Some changes in your eating habits are a must. Eat small portions of food at small intervals. Add more of fresh fruits and salads to your diet. Have lots of water- it keeps your body hydrated and improves your blood circulation, therby keeping you alert. While studying read aloud whatever you are studying - explain the content to someone, or an imaginary friend- pretend to teach someone- your understanding will improve, so will your concentration and memory. Make points of the content. Revise more often. Before sleeping just repeat the points to yourself. Exercise, or play some outdoor sport everyday for at least 40-60 mins.

Are You Suffering From Adjustment Disorder?

What Is Adjustment Disorder
Adjustment disorder is considered to be a group of conditions, which usually occur when a person experiences difficulty in coping with the stressful life events. These usually include relationship issues, job issues or the demise of a loved one. The incapacity to adjust to stressful events leads to psychological and sometimes physical symptoms.


Symptoms of Adjustment Disorder
The psychological and physical symptoms linked with adjustment disorder occur either during or instantly after a stressful event. The disorder only lasts for 6 months, but the symptoms might continue if the stressor has not been removed. The symptoms might vary from person to person.

The psychological symptoms are anxiety, crying, impulsiveness, lack of concentration, low or loss of self esteem, feeling hopeless, sad or trapped, and withdrawn attitude along with suicidal tendencies.

These physical symptoms can include trembling, twitching of the muscles, soreness, body pain, insomnia, indigestion and fatigue.

Adjustment disorder might display psychological and physical symptoms separately or together.

Types of Adjustment Disorder

There are 6 adjustment disorders and each one of them is associated with different symptoms:
1) Adjustment disorder with depressed mood: People diagnosed with this suffer from feelings of hopelessness and sadness is often related with crying. Also, a person might not enjoy the activities, which he earlier enjoyed.
2) Adjustment disorder with anxiety: Symptoms of this are anxiety along with being anxious, overwhelmed, and worried. People with this show less concentration and poor memory. When diagnosed in children, it is usually due to the separation anxiety from loved ones and parents.
3) Adjustment disorder with mixed anxiety and depressed mood: In this both anxiety and depression is experienced.
4) Adjustment disorder with disturbance of conduct: The symptoms of this disorder are more about the involvement of the behavioral issues like starting a quarrel, reckless driving, destructing property and stealing. Teens suffering from this might become absent from school.
5) Adjustment disorder with mixed disturbance of emotions and conduct: The symptoms of anxiety, depression, and behavioral issues are observed.
6) Adjustment disorder unspecified: People who are diagnosed with this type of disorder usually display symptoms those are not associated with other disorders. They exhibit more of physical symptoms and problems with family and friends or at school and workplace.

Treatment of Adjustment Disorder:
If diagnosed with an adjustment disorder, a person can definitely benefit from treatment. This is usually treated with therapy or medicines or a combination of both.
- Therapy is the first choice. A health counselor or a psychologist can give counseling and if there is a need for medication, then you might be referred to a psychiatrist.
- Medication like Nonbenzodiazepine anxiolytic, SSRI or SNRI and benzodiazepines might be prescribed for reducing the symptoms of anxiety.

I have and allergy and am very  frustrated because this cause my studies effected.
Allergies can be hereditary. But if you try to boost your immune system you will have lesser problems. Get your allergy test done, if you have not done it till now. Stay away or avoid all those things which trigger allergic reactions in your body. You may also try ayurvedic or homeopathy medicines because they will treat the root cause. But please remember, that with your consistent efforts you can rid of this. So do not get frustrated. You need to go for walk/jog/cycling whatever you like. Do yoga and pranayam as well. Have healthy food and on time. Take adequate rest and have plenty of water. All this will boost your immune system. In the morning when you get up, first thing is - sit comfortably, close your eyes and tell yourself that your body and mind is getting stronger every day. Do the same exercise at night. Allergies are triggered when you are under lot of stress. Please try some de-stressing exercises. Take care.

How can we increase the memory power is there any medicine available or is there any exercise?

There is no medicine that is available to increase memory power. All the claims that you read about are just that: tall claims and no truth in them. But there are things you can do to help yourself. Here are some things you can do to get back your concentration and memory: 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 are 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.

Anger is a healthy emotion if expressed in an appropriate manner. It helps to protect your personal boundaries and indicates that some of your needs are not being met. Your anger over small issues suggests that you have become habitual to it and need anger management. When you get angry and violent then you are suppressing someone else by showing your power and that is counter productive and anti social behaviour. Please take counselling sessions to take control of your anger.

I have respiratory problem for last 2 years. It is frequent (say 3 or 4 times in a week) to have severe problem during normal respiration accompanied with wheezing. It stays for 2-3 hours and disappear automatically. I am not a smoker. How can I get rid of this problem?

Since the body area that needs utmost attention is the chest, one should try to keep it warm. Use fomentation bottle to warm up the chest, upper back, and back side of the neck. Keeping your feet in warm water is also helpful. It has been found by the researchers that drinking 3 glasses of orange juice everyday can bring down wheezing to 70%. Steam helps relieve the symptoms of all the respiratory tract ailments. Throw a towel on your head to inhale steam from a mini sauna, for 10 minutes. Steam will humidify your respiratory passages, easing your breathing, that will help in looking after the wheezing.

You could be subjected to abuse in your early past or childhood. That psychological pain needs relief. Thats why you feel physically self inflicted pain is a relief. That is why you could be suffering from micro depressive episodes as well. Some people go on to develop borderline personality disorder with lots of relationship problems. Consult your psychiatrist for a resolution of the same.

Please note the following for your condition: • Avoid big meals late in the evening. You need three to four hours to digest a big meal. • Spicy or sugary food, even at suppertime, is usually a bad idea. Spices can irritate your stomach, and when it tosses and turns, so will you. Having a lot of sugary food—especially chocolate, which contains caffeine—can make you feel jumpy. • Try a soothing aromatic bath before bedtime. Add 5 drops lavender oil and 3 drops ylang-ylang oil to warm bathwater and enjoy a nice soak.

Dear Vidyasagar. Welcome to lybrate. Masturbation in limit is not unhealthy and is not going to affect your memory. Thrice or four times a week at your age is considered within limit. Stick to masturbation thrice or four times a week and there is no health issue. Take care.

It seems to me that your girl's love is not as deep as yours. She is using you just for a time-pass. Do not get into this relationship deeply. Develop the same attitude towards her. You will never be frustrated. If she takes further step to get closer to you, you can go further.

Hi lybrate-user, I could understand that you are a lovable person that is the reason you started to admire a girl, I think she speaks to you affectionately and she has got soft and kind voice that is the reason you are close. You must be more possessive of her that is the reason you care so much for her. Definitely you can buy something for her. Care for her, nothing wrong in it. It is just an affection towards opposite sex, nothing wrong it happens to most of them at this age. This type of feeling vanishes as time goes on this is just temporary not permanent feeling. You have got to wait to confirm if it is love or not. So it will take some time. Just wait and see. Do not jump into conclusions. If you need help regarding this you can contact me or call. We are always there to help and guide you to lead better life style. Take care. With regards, Psy. MSV.
