Dear Lybrate user. I can understand. Speech therapist uses proven and on sight voice box exercises with the help of modern machines and equipment. Nothing matches their expertise. I request you to consult a speech therapist for once and see what opinion he has. Then we can see how things can be done. Take care.

You will need professional help from a psychiatrist or psychologist properly trained in psychotherapy. They are far and few but available. It is not possible to say a few words and change the way you are. Don't take tension, just relax, do meditation etc are easy to say but not easy to execute. You must go for intensive psychotherapy. This may sound slightly different or difficult but is the truth!

I get angry sometimes thinking of past. I get tension and stress. How can I control that.
Thinking about past it is not good attitude. Every one is depressed. If they think about past. Everyone is not perfect about their past incidents. Uneducated they do not think past and future. They are very happy and they settled early in family life. Educated too much thinking about past and furture so they have always problems. Educated they do not think about present days work. They waste their time to thinking about it. It is not only your problem. This problem is applicable to every one. Think about past it is very good but we learn good lesson from the past and take positive steps to not repeat again. This is called maturity. So feel and think like matured person. Do not be stress. Develop healthy attitude with others. Share and feel like very good person. Ok best of luck.

First of all, the intensity of stress is in the perception - in your case, it sounds like the exam is the stress. Change your perception, there is no stress: it’s like looking at a glass half full or half empty. Apart from that, all your emotions need to be dealt with by expression i.e. you need to talk about the feelings. Then you need to exercise regularly, eat fiber foods (whole grains, fruits, and vegetables), sleep at least 8 hours every day, learn Yoga and meditation, learn stress management, and do a personality development course. Because you are into studies, follow a tight schedule, with good breaks and study habits. If group study helps you, do it with the right people. If tutoring is required, arrange for the same. These should see you through successfully without the stress.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. If you want to know whether a girl loves you or not, the best method is to propose her. Immediately you will come to know. There are no short cuts. You can observe her behavior and see whether things are favorable. But such a step is always unsatisfactory for you because you want to know the truth. Propose her and hope for the best. Take care.

Hello I read your question. It seems as if you are bothered with constipation/irregularities of your bowel habbits. Let me tell you how can your digestive system be regularized. First of all have a look at your life style. Regular sleep and dietary habbits, in most of cases suffice. Any addictions, may be smoking, drinking, tobacco chewing etc. Also have bad effects on digestion. In addition, increase mix salad helps a lot. Add fruits of season compulsorily to lunch. Extra effort for thw problem maay be taken in the form of 2 spoons of honey added to half a cup of warm water every morning empty stomach is excellent remedy. A week or so, if followed the above, still persistent, medicines may be prescribed. Not now. Hope satisfied. Regards.

I am a male of 57 years suffering from depression from last 25 years. I took many antidepressant medicines. From last two years I was taking zosert 50 mg. One at night and was feeling well, sleeping well. Now suddenly from last one month, I am very un happy, no interest in works and remain in my bedroom, not want to talk to anybody. Then I increased dose of zosert 50 gm to 100 gm up to 20 days but no progress, then I again increased the zosert 100 mg to 200 mg but no progress. At night I was also taking Ativan 2mg. For sleeping. I think I can never be happy again and can not work again. Kindly advise me accordingly as per above details.

Dear lybrate-user, your history of being depressed and in rehab home for few years suggest that your problems are more than insomnia. Insomnia itself may be due to depression or other conditions. It is better to treat you as a whole person rather than prescribing a sleeping pill.

I HAVE BEEN TAKING ANTI-ANXIETY AND DEPRESSION PILLS SINCE ADOLESCENCE AFTER A MENTAL- BREAKDOWN. IS THERE A CHANCE THAT I WILL BE ABLE TO BE PSYCHOLOGY STABLE WITHOUT THESE MEDICATIONS. MY AGE IS 24 NOW.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Are you sure that it is only depression? If you had a break down, it could be more serious than you think. Any way coming off of medicine can only take place if you are also doing some form of therapy and developing new skills. Failing this you may have to wait a long time and hope that the chemical difference in the brain is stabilized with prescription drugs. Even then you will need to have at least a three year period of episode-free living. Ideally medication combined with talk therapy will enable you to become drug-free after a three year hiatus. Through behavior modification much adjustment can be achieved, and with improved coping mechanisms life may be faced with gusto. You are still young, and your prognosis is good, subject to your cooperation with the therapy. One important action is to start vigorous exercise which can make the brain produce natural antidepressants minus the side-effects. There are many more things to do, and if you are interested, you may contact me for a little list of the same.

It is completely understandable that you had a big trauma losing both your family members in the same year, i. E. 10 years back 2006 but if you continue to feel depressed then you need help with medicines along with counselling. So consult a psychiatrsist for medications and therapy. Also you may follow general suggestions - do not stay alone - spend time with family and friends and people whom feel comfortable with. - do not keep your feelings to yourself talk them out - eat healthy, avoid smoking and alcohol, have a good sleep at night - exercise daily, do deep breathing exercises, yoga/ meditation for relaxation consult online for any further queries and assistance.

Dear lybrate-user, exam phobia or exam fear comes under the head of performance anxiety. This fear is a common picture among students and the feelings increase when students start studying. In extreme cases this phenomenon becomes exam phobia. The symptoms of exam phobia can be easily observed and addressed. It is an irrational and powerful fear and aversion to exams. Overwhelming anxiety can affect memory and students may forget answers even if they knew. The best method to overcome exam phobia is to" always bear in mind that we are studying only to live and not living only to study" don't force yourself to get high marks at least for the time being. Enjoy learning. You should consult a psychologist online or offline for counseling. Take care.
