Dear Lybrate user. I can understand. Confidence is always based on your own experience and perceptions. Feeling tension and stress while attending or before interview is a common phenomena. Such stress and tension is actually good for you to prepare and perform well in the interview. Do not take it negative. Still, you need to improve your self confidence by understanding you and your capabilities. I suggest online counseling and self confidence building measures. Take care.

I am 18 years old male and have memory loss always a part of aging? How much loss is considered normal?

Dear, at your age, memory problems like amnesia are not common. Many young people are having problems with memory. These problems are either they are too busy or due to anxiety and stress. Busy people use organizers or employ a personal assistant because they can't remember every task. You need to understand this. If you still say, you are having memory problems, we need to check your memory using memory test. Take care.

Dear doctor we have a patient of schizophrenia having auditory hallucinations and is under medication from Aiims Delhi. I have come to know through a scholarly article that increasing estrogen hormone especially estradiol b17 can reduce symptoms substantially. You are requested to advise medicine and the method of increasing the hormone. We will be highly obliged and thankful to you.

Well schizophrenia is a serious psychiatric illness which has lead to lot of research in the treatment. Many vitamin supplements, hormonal therapies and natural ingredients have been tried and have shown positive results but they are only in the preliminary stage. Regarding using oestrogen supplements, the results have not produced similar results in clinical practice and oestrogen supplements have many side effects to tolerate with it too. My kind advice to you is to stop surfing Internet which can mislead you. Believe your psychiatrist who can help you. Important point to note is that schizophrenia as of now is a disorder which can only kept under control and not cured and we have come across many clients with refractory auditory hallucinations even after multiple treatments. Well schizophrenia is a very complex disorder which can be very challenging at times due to the permanent neuronal changes they produce. Few tips to reduce auditory hallucinations are keeping ourself engaged, avoiding being alone and reading books and hearing to favourite music etc. Hope I was helpful. Thank you.

Depression is a psychiatric disorder characterised by persistent sadness of mood, disinterest in work and surroundings along with associated symptoms like sleep problems, inability to experience pleasure in previously pleasurable things, decreased appetite etc present persistently for atleast 15 days. There is no specific cause for depression. But a deficiency and imbalance of certain neurotransmitters in the brain can caused precession. Treatment with antidepressants and counselling can treat depression effectively.

Dear friend, first know as what is it that you actually want. Sacrificing means doing something which is not a preferred choice. It is suppressing what you want in some way and what is suppressed does not evaporate but gets magnified. I hope you realize that an individual, because he is an individual is selfish to the core, the sooner you realize it the better it is. If you want money, draw a line and be one tracked and you will eventually get it. Try being honest to yourself. It is not very easy

You should get counseling done. Depression has a particular pattern of thoughts and one gets stuck into the pattern. Take actions in life which you have not taken in past for the fear of outcome or social evaluation. There is dissatisfaction created by your mind for not having or not becoming something and the mind also tells you to get rid of this. Do not fight your depression, it will get magnified that way. Get up and do what you want irrespective of the outcome!

Love /relationship is always a mutual thing. If it is one - sided it will only bring pain. The easiest and quickest way to forget her is to make a new girlfriend. Also focus on the negative aspects on her and the relationship for few days. And you will be soon back to happy ways :)

Please suggest me some steps to quit smoking. I have tried so many time but always failed. My age is 36, smoking since 20 years of age. I have work style which is really stressful. Please suggest.

General Physician,
Best age to stop smoking is before 40, In fact do not start all Only by using strong will power and avoiding all situations where you feel like smoking, chewing tobacco or drinking or using drugs avoiding friends who smoke and diverting mind by reading or chewing a gum, like NICORETTE and taking a walk when you crave for a smoke can all help. You can chew Nicorette gum which is nicotine replacement. There are medicines available. Which can be prescribed if asked personally Cigarette smoking is a leading preventable cause of mortality. It kills more than 60 lakh people worldwide every year. More than 50% of regular smokers would invariably die from tobacco-related illnesses which includes heart attack, cancer or asthmatic lung diseases. Best age to stop smoking is before 40 31st May is “World No Tobacco Day” Quitting smoking before the age of 40 is associated with larger decline in premature death than stopping it at a later date. Best age therefore to stop smoking is before 40. However, stopping smoking even after the age of 50 is still associated with lower risk of death as compared to those who continue to smoke. Even in smokers aged 80 years or more, quitting smoking appears to reduce some mortality.

You are suffering from an anxiety disorder. In anxiety disorder the patient always have ongoing anxiety on minor day to day issues, patient feels himself/ herself on the edge always and experience worry, preoccupation with negative thinking, insomnia and poor self confidence. Person hesitates and avoids many things leading to serious social and occupational dysfunction. Fortunately treatment is available but current law does not allow to prescribe drug online.

at two an half months means around 10 weeks, it is safe to undergo MTP (medical termination of pregnancy), under the guidance of an experienced OG cian, done in an approved centre. Medical abortion can many a times lead to serious blood loss and loss of life is a common risk, so better go for surgical intervention.

मैं सिगरेट पीने लगा हूं, मैं इसे छोडना चाहता हूं मगर ये छूट नही रही है आप बताइये मैं इससे छुटकारा कैसे पा सकता हूं ा

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Congratulations that you want to quit smoking. Tobacco consumption, either through smoke or other edible forms, is always harmful. The desire to quit is a good starting point. The best way to quit is to know more about the ill-effects of tobacco. The knowledge is astounding and scary. That information itself should help you to want to quit. The tobacco tar in cigarette smoke lines your lung with huge patches that make that portion dysfunctional. Your oxygen carrying capacity is jeopardized, and breathing is impinged. The nicotine in tobacco smoke stimulates the heart beat to raise the blood pressure in no time at all. There are more than 4000 harmful chemicals in cigarette smoke!!! You will need to stop smoking with immediate effect. Then you need to identify why you smoke: there is an oral need, the nicotine effect, the psychological effect of covering up some other issue, for style, to impress, etc. You may discover that the reasons may be unimportant at this stage because you have become too addicted and the habit has become compulsive. You should start exercises, gradually increasing it over a period of time. Do deep breathing exercises every time you feel like smoking (try Yoga), and replace the oral urge with some healthy food substitute to satiate the need, for a little while. You may take hard candy or chewing gum. If the urge is too strong, then use nicotine chewing gum or nicotine patches, for a little while until the smoking drive reduces, substantially. You may join Smokers Anonymous in your city where the support is really extraordinary for like-minded people who are also in the same situation. Keep yourself occupied or engaged with interesting activities during the times when it is most tempting. Keep the company of non-smokers for some time i.e. at least for the first 21 days. Above all announce it to everyone that you have quit smoking. Here’s a piece of very good advice: even if you accidentally/willfully take a cigarette, it is not the end of the world – you can start the cessation all over again. Don’t be discouraged because it is not too late even now to reverse all the ill-effects of smoking. You must persevere with the best support until you defeat this addiction. Counseling is very useful in the initial stages and when temptations are at their highest.

I have a habit of smoking. I want to quit it. Do I need any medicine to stop smoking?

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Kolkata
Many a times clients make up their mind only to loose motivation midway. Make sure you don't do the same. Before medicines, try this. Set a quit date and keep on decreasing till that day. Abstain from smoking from the quit date. You may face withdrawal once you completely stop smoking. If you can't control withdrawals meet a psychiatrist for medicines. There is a high chance you can do it without medicines. Just see that the quit date is not too far away.

You must go and meet with a counselor immediately and if that person advises that you meet with a doctor you must do so and cooperate to your utmost. Please visit these professionals along with your parents. In the meantime please do the following sincerely because you could resolve the problem better with good cooperation: 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. I suggest you do the opposite of what this depression makes you feel like doing (actually, not doing): you will need to fight this condition. You must become active; stay upright during the daylight time; meet people; never sleep during the day, wake up by 6 am every day, play some active games, especially contact games, do physical exercises, talk to people and join some social clubs, attend Yoga classes etc. Watch sitcoms on TV or comedies and cheer yourself up. Go for excursions in groups, for outings, camps, conferences, and religious conventions. Get a pet dog and spend time training it, exercising it and relating to it. Expose yourself to some sunlight every day, at least, 30 minutes but not in the scorching heat. Whatever happens, please incorporate these three important adaptations in your life: always be responsible, be respectful, and be functional. If you did these three, lots of things will go well in life. Please pray and have faith in God to alleviate your sufferings. Don’t wait for others to help. Use your own motivation, which might be at its lowest, but persevere and win this battle. Above all to be really happy, you need to live in love and for love. Learn all about emotions and how to handle them and that will get you out of the depression rather easily and quickly. A counselor is there only to facilitate you, all the hard word must come from you, and your cooperation with that person is very critical for your success. Be positive every day and learn to be contented with what you have. Do some left brain exercises: it is the happy brain. Here are a few suggestions: 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. Whatever happens please cooperate with the therapy and do not discontinue until the condition is completely resolved.

Hi I am 28 year old male. I am software engineer. I think I am in depression because of my wife behavior. Please help me to save my life…We have been married more than 5 years now. My wife is good, however she is short tempered. Sometime she does’t even hesitate to scream at me or at my parents or at her parents or at our kid even in a party or a public place. I and her parents tried a lot to talk to her but all gone waste. Most of the time, the main reason of her screaming is any external intervention. For example she has her own way to do everything however if you try to show her a better way then she gets angry and it take her almost 2-3 days to behave normal. I really need a practical advice to handle this situation. Some time I am feeling of sadness, lack of concentration, slowness in activity and thought, or thoughts of suicide without any reason.

Let us first deal with problems of your wife. It seems she has anger management problems. It's natural to disagree or get annoyed at somebody's opinion if it gets against our own, but we need to learn to have a balanced response, no matter where we are, alone or in a party. Such uncontrolled anger outbursts can be due to personality problems, hormonal disturbances, mood disorders etc which need treatment with some medications and counseling. She would definitely be much better with treatment. As regards you, if you are bothered by your wife's behaviour for 5 years and feel sad and harming your own self, it means that you have given up on her. Also it seems that your mind is ina helpless situation and you find life worthless. You also need counselling for the same and some medicines to calm your state of mind.

Dear Lybrate user. I can understand. Memory and mind power depends on three aspects. Understanding, retention and recollection. Recollection is easy if your retention is proper and flawless. Retention is possible when you are able understand what you read or learn. To understand you should have concentration. Concentration comes from effective learning techniques based on creative and active learning. Physical exercise, outdoor games, entertainment, socializing coupled with systematic learning improves your memory and mind power. Brain games like sudoku and jigsaw puzzles helps too. I suggest online education counseling. Take care.
