I frequently forget things. I have really bad memory. If my family asks me to bring few things among them I forget few things. I Do not have presence of my mind. I feel I'm abnormal.

General Physician,
7 Ways to Remember Anything Research-based strategies to boost your memory and keep it strong 7 Strategies for Remembering 1.Become interested in what you're learning. We're all better remembering what interests us. Few people, for example, have a difficult time remembering the names of people they find attractive. If you're not intrinsically interested in what you're learning or trying to remember, you must find a way to become so. 2.Find a way to leverage your visual memory. You'll be surprised by how much more this will enable you to remember. For example, imagine you're at a party and are introduced to five people in quick succession. How can you quickly memorize their names? Pick out a single defining visual characteristic of each person and connect it to a visual representation of their name, preferably through an action of some kind. Remember: Memory is predominantly visual. 3.Create a mental memory tree. If you're trying to memorize a large number of facts, find a way to relate them in your mind visually with a memory tree. Construct big branches first, then leaves. Branches and leaves should carry labels that are personally meaningful to you in some way, and the organization of the facts ("leaves") should be logical. 4.Associate what you're trying to learn with what you already know. It seems the more mental connections we have to a piece of information, the more successful we'll be in remembering it. This is why using mnemonics. Write out the items to be memorized over and over and over. 5.When reading for retention, summarize each paragraph in the margin. This requires you to think about what you're reading, recycle it, and teach it to yourself again. Even take the concepts you're learning and reason forward with them; apply them to imagined novel situations, which creates more neural connections to reinforce the memory. 6.Do most of your studying in the afternoon. Though you may identify yourself as a "morning person" or "evening person" at least one Study. Suggests your ability to memorize isn't influenced as much by what time of day you perceive yourself to be most alert but by the time of day you actually study—afternoon appearing to be the best. 7.Get adequate sleep to consolidate and retain memories. Not just at night after you've studied but the day, you study as well. Far better to do this than to stay up cramming all night for an exam.

Dear,. Sexual fantasies are normal and you can have any type of fantasies. The tricky part is how you are going to fulfill any fantasy. In your case, you tried to fulfill one of your fantasy with the help of your girl friend and another male friend. That is causing confusion. Because you revered your girl friend as only your friend and her deviation from truth gave you jitters. Don't worry. Understanding is the key and answer to many misunderstandings. Take care.

Dear Lybrate user It's important that along with medicines your brother must take some help from Psychologist. One on one sessions are required. Also try making some lifestyle changes like early morning walk/jogging or Yoga. Trying engage in some hobby. You both brothers can spend some brother time watching movie together or going to some trip together. Hope these solutions will help. Take care.

Masturbation has no connection with poor concentration or weak mental abilities. Its a MYTH. Feel free to masturbate and enjoy your fantasies. The only loss you experience by masturbating is low satisfaction. You can not substitute a real partner with an imagined one. You will always keep craving for real thing if you will keep entertaining yourself with substitutes. Japanese youth is making use of sex toys and dummy women to satisfy their sexual urges, They are becoming anhedonic day by day. Anhedonia means reduced sense of pleasure in day to day activities. That means overall pleasure feelings get affected by paraphilic tendencies like masturbation or fetishism. So you must build confidence to approach a girl. You have believed that masturbation is your destiny and you will never get a real girl (in case you do not have one as I am assuming this based on my experience). But believe me, you can get a girl in real. Your worries are due to this only. All your concerns regarding your mental health are focused on masturbation practice. But practically, these worries are needless.

I just broke up with my fiancee who also happens to be my business partner. We were living in. Still have to see him everyday after he coldly walked out on me (rather asked me to move out of my house as his parents were living with us). His issues with me were blown out of proportion by his parents resulting in a bad break up. I hv quit my start up with him. Am job hunting. I'm 29 and i'm scared I won't find a good life partner now. I'm depressed. I get anxiety attacks.

Have self respect, this person doesn't deserve you, also you are fortunate that you didn't marry him, and you got timely reminder. Just relax and move on in life, throw them out of your house and don't give them your house. Don't bow down to his dictates, and understand what would have been the situation if you married him. Be quick, relax you will find good partner and man of your life. If you cant handle yourself meet an expert marriage and relationship coach.For further assistance you can concern me privately.

8 Stress-Related Health Problems: Know The Signs

Today, everyone seems to have an increased amount of stress, whether it is due to the economy, their job, layoff or family relationships and other constraints. Many medical and physical complaints that we have can in some way or another be due to or can be worsened by stress.

Here are eight of the most common stress-induced conditions and the evidence behind them.
1. Depression and anxiety/panic disorders. This is pretty easy to understand. The more stress a person has, the worse underlying mental health disorders can become. The stress of loss of a loved one, loss of a job or threat of losing your job, or a strained relationship can lead to overwhelming sadness or symptoms of panic. Insomnia and sleep disturbances can occur as racing thoughts and increased worry at night. Alcohol and tobacco abuse can also occur concurrently as ways to self-medicate in the absence of correct ways of treatment such as prayer, counseling, therapy or prescribed medication.

2. Hypertension and heart disease. Otherwise known as high blood pressure, stress can cause an increase in constriction of blood vessels. Stress has not been proven as a direct cause of high blood pressure, but it can have an overall effect on the release of hormones from the nervous system and circulatory systems, which makes it harder for the heart to pump blood to our vital organs. If blood pressure is chronically high and blood vessels have enough damage or cholesterol buildup, heart disease can be the result. Some chest pain can even be linked to stress.

3. GERD (acid reflux) and stomach ulcers. Emotional stress can lead to an increased production of acid from proton pumps and H2 receptors in our stomachs. If acidity is prominent, a burning sensation can be felt and pain can extend from the stomach (in the center and to the left of the middle of the stomach) all the way up to the esophagus and throat. Foods that we eat, including caffeinated beverages, spicy ingredients and citrus can make this worse. If left for too long, ulcers, or an eating away of the lining of the stomach, can develop and even worsen to the point of bleeding.

4. Obesity. Stress can cause an increase of the hormone cortisol to be released from the adrenal glands. Cortisol is linked to increased glucose (blood sugar) and weight gain. Also, while some of us eat less with stress, many of us eat more ?comfort foods,? which are generally more sweet and fatty, and have more calories.

5. Headaches. Migraines are thought to be the most common type of headache, but tension is probably higher on the list of causes of headache. Both types can increase with stress. With tension headaches, a tense pressure or squeeze can be felt in any part of the head, usually with muscle tension and soreness of the neck and even shoulders. Migraines are thought to be associated with signals from the nervous system that relax blood vessels. When vessels relax, blood rushes to them and cause dilation. If too dilated, this can cause pain.

6. Abnormal menstrual cycles. Skipping a period can be very distressing for a woman, especially if unexplained. Although we don?t know what the certain cause is, it is thought that emotional stress affects release of certain pituitary hormones that can cause irregular periods. If weight is lost or gained due to stress, estrogen or a lack thereof, it can also cause irregular periods.

7. Viral infections. When we're stressed or fatigued, our immune system doesn?t work as well to prevent us from infection. We all have antibodies from vaccines or from previous infections that have built up in memory cells and are programmed to increase when we are exposed to infections. Stress reduces this response. Colds can occur more frequently and, even worse, viruses such as herpes and HPV (human papilloma virus can show themselves during these ?down? times.

8. Cancers. This one is controversial, as some studies say one thing and some say another. The conflicting data questions whether stress can be a direct cause of some cancers. In 2002, a study was done on patients who had breast cancer that was treated. The question was asked if stress could be linked to the cancer coming back. The study could not prove it to be true. However, in animal studies, an increase of stress hormones was linked directly to growth of some tumors. Long story short, the evidence is inconsistent, but there may be truth to the claim that stress can lead to certain cancers.
All in all, be self-aware of the signs. If you?re feeling overwhelmed, as we all at some point do, be proactive by exercising, drinking plenty of water, getting good restful sleep and doing those things that you enjoy doing with those you love. If it still feels like life is crashing down on you or your body is breaking down, please ask me privately here.

Feeling depressed, sad and disinterested in surroundings and bursting into tears (emotional sensitivity) suggests a depressive disorder which definitely needs urgent evaluation and treatment. Consult me online or a psychiatrist in your vicinity for help and treatment.

Failure is also an achievement. Try to understand your level by result. Muhammad gajanawi falied 17 times. Shri ram failed several times. Gandhiji failed to make india free in 1930. All fail in life. They try and get success. Get movivated to learn systematically. Tolerate. Work and live detached from its result as result depends on result givers too. If their mood is bad they give 0/100. Then why do you feel failure. It is failure of result -givers. Think positive about self and ability.

Dear lybrate-user. That is a great achievement. Body starts its repair process the moment you stop smoking and drinking. Just leave it to the body. Physical exercise is a must. Have nutritious diet with plenty of water and fruits. It should take around 12 months for the body to completely repair itself. Take care.
