I have lost my self confidence. No one girl wants to be my friend and I am failing in every exam. Due to which I feel depressed all the time. please help me.

Hi lybrate-user, you need to take psychotherapy from a psychologist. I need to understand what led you to lose your confidence is it just because girls are not your friends. If we understand the dynamics we may be able to bring about change in your thinking. You are having cognitive distortion for which you need cognitive behavioral therapy. You are ignoring all the positive in your life and focusing just on negative. If really no girl wants to be your friend we need to figure out the reason. Consult for same. All the best.

Doctor, How to improve my memory power I have confusions any time how to clear my problem please answer me.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Intend to remember. Remembering well requires that you want to remember. If you have not made a decision to remember what you are reading/studying, you will forget almost immediately. Describe the place where you usually read. (Is it quiet? No TV? No stereo? No talking?) Are you motivated to remember what you read/study? For example, can you give a reason for remembering these ideas: score of the football game directions for "jumping" a dead battery ? when your battery is dead directions for getting to a job interview textbook material for a test Even though you are not interested in the subject you must read about, are you willing to use good reading strategies? Do you preview before you read? Do you ask questions and then read to answer your questions? Don't overload the memory. Seven items is the most our memories can comfortably handle in one bite, but even seven is too much for most people. Your memory prefers to have only three, four, or five things at one time. Therefore, if you need to remember something that has more than four or five items in a group, you will have to break up the group into smaller bites. Understand before you try to remember. If you don't understand something, your memory will have difficulty storing it. Work on understanding before you try to remember. Select the most interesting points. You can't expect to remember everything you read. Select the most important points by looking for answers to questions you have formed. No one can remember everything. If you try to remember every idea, you will probably not remember much of anything. Organize the material to be learned. Your memory works best when the information is organized. Organize first. Use formal or informal outlines or use mapping, and your memory will work for you. You may understand something when you see it, but if your mental filing system isn't working, you may not be able to find the right information when you need it. Relate the ideas to what you already know. Your memory will store new ideas if you relate them to old ideas. Make an association, create a mental picture, or use mnemonic devices to relate unknown information to information you already know. Use mnemonic devices. These memory devices aid memory, but should be simple, clear, and vivid. You remember the unusual, the funny, or both. Rhymes ? This method uses rhyming words to help you remember. Example: "I before E, except after C, or when sounded like A, as in neighbor and weigh." Acronyms ? A word made from the first letters of other words aids memory. Examples: "I. R. Soul" from the 6 strategies for better memory I ? Intend to remember R ? Relate the information S ? Select important ideas O ? Organize the details U ? Understand the ideas L ? Limit the amount "PRELIMINARY" to help police officers remember what steps to follow when called to the scene of a crime P ? Proceed to the scene. R ? Render assistance to the injured. E ? Effect the arrest of the perpetrator. L ? Locate and identify witnesses. I ? Interview complainant and witnesses. M ? Maintain the scene and protect evidence. I ? Interrogate suspects. N ? Note all conditions, events, and remarks. A ? Arrange for collection of evidence. R ? Report the incident fully and accurately. Y ? Yield Responsibility to detectives. Sentences ? Memory sentences are made where the first letters of words in the sentence are the same as the first letters of words that need to be recalled. Examples: "I Remember So Little Unless Organized."- from the first letter of each of the 6 strategies of memory (listed previously). "Please Excuse My Dear Aunt Sally."- for the order of operations in a math problem (parentheses, exponents, multiplication, division, addition, subtraction). Mnemonic devices are handy when studying for tests, but they should not be used as a substitute for understanding. Test yourself repeatedly. Memorize the material through repeated self-testing. Look at the first item in your notes; then look away and try to repeat it to yourself. After you learn each new item, go back and test yourself on all the previous items. Over learn the material. If you study a subject beyond the time needed for perfect recall, you will increase the length of time that you will remember it. Study before going to bed, but not ON your bed! Study thoroughly the material to be learned. Then go right to sleep without watching a late movie or allowing other activities to interfere with your new learning. Your mind will work to absorb much of the material during the night. In the morning spend a few minutes reviewing to solidly fix the material in your memory.Ask privately if you need help

I am sad to hear this. But cerebellar atrophy is difficult to reverse, I guess the neurologist should have told you about the disorder and long term prognosis.

Smoking can stain your teeth yellow

MDS, BDS

Smoking can stain your teeth yellow, cause bad breath, and increases your risk of gum disease, breathing problems
If you smoke 20 or more cigarettes a day, you're six times more likely to develop mouth cancer than someone who doesn't smoke. So giving up smoking is important if you want to look and feel better.

I m smoking for 10 years I want to quit smoking is there any way I can regain the ling capacity again.

It’s not too late to reverse the effects of smoking. An overwhelming amount of damage to your health can be reversed by quitting. Studies have shown that quitting at around age 30 reduces the chance of dying from smoking-related diseases by more than 90%. If you quit at around age 50, you reduce the risk of dying prematurely by 50% compared with those who continue to smoke. Even those who quit at around age 60 or older live longer than those who continue to smoke. Not only that but you’ll experience immediate health benefits from being a nonsmoker – as quickly as 20 minutes after you quit. What Happens When You Quit Immediately after quitting smoking, heart rate and blood pressure, which is abnormally high while smoking, begin to return to normal. Within a few hours, the level of carbon monoxide, which reduces the blood’s ability to carry oxygen, begins to decline. Within a few weeks, circulation improves, you don’t produce as much phlegm, and you don’t cough or wheeze as often. The workload on the heart is decreased and cardiac function is improved. Food tastes better, and your sense of smell returns to normal. Everyday activities no longer leave you out of breath. Within several months of quitting, you experience significant improvements in lung function. In one year, your risk of heart disease, heart attack, and stroke is halved. In five years, many kinds of cancer, including lung, larynx, mouth, stomach, cervix, bladder, show decline in risk, and that decline approaches the risk of someone who has never smoked. Within 10 to 15 years, risk of lung disease, including bronchitis and emphysema, are decreased. Conditions such as cataracts, macular degeneration, thyroid conditions, hearing loss, dementia, and osteoporosis are positively affected. Nerve endings in the mouth and nose begin to regenerate, improving taste and smell. Medications may work better, enabling some to be taken in decreased doses. If you’re taking birth control pills, quitting smoking will decrease your chance of heart attack and stroke due to clotting. You’ll have decreased risk for impotence and infertility. If you’re pregnant, you’ll protect your unborn child from Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) and low birth weight. Years will be added to your life: people who quit smoking, regardless of their age, are less likely than those who continue to smoke to die from smoking-related illness.

To lose weight, you have to maintain an input-output ratio. Whatever food you eat contains the input calories which gives you the output calories in the form of energy. If your input calories is too much, you are likely to put on weight. The best way to lose weight is to exercise or spend the additional calories accumulated in your body in the form of fat. The other most important thing is to eat wisely. Try to cut down the excessive calories you are eating and make sure whatever you eat is healthy. Some tips to lose weight - 1. Have more fruits and vegetables than junk food and juices. 2. Avoid sugar as much as you can 3. Exercise 3-4 times a week. 4. Have an early dinner, preferably before 8 p. M. 5. Do not starve yourself. Eat small meals 5 times a day. 6. Have barley soup in dinner and avoid rice at night. 7. Drink lots of water daily.

I think you are feeling insecure. It is necessary, to explore your fear of death. This fear is so intense that even when asleep you are disturbed because of your thoughts. You may be having certain doubts or worries about sex as well. Kindly consult a counsellor who will help you to come out of both the problems.

Dear lybrate-user, I am very happy to hear that you have quit smoking. It couldn't have been easy, I am very proud of you for having done that. You are on the right path to gaining back your health. Running, gym and cycling are all good. I would advise also taking care of your nutrition, involve fruits, green leafy vegetable and dairy products in your meals. Do not inhale even second-hand smoke as it leads to adverse health effects as well. Else you are doing all good. Keep up with the efforts and you should be healthy and fit. Regards,

Break up can be a traumatic experience, it can effect one's life in multiple ways. The depression which it causes won't go on its own and should be treated.

My father is 58 years old suffering from depression, for past 6-7 years & he is depressed due to my sister marriage. After treatment and medicines he become fit and fine. Later 1-2 year ago he becomes more active, aggressive and energetic than before, this behaviour remains for 1+ years. From last 5-6 months he again slowly gets into depression and becomes less active, does not talk much, keep tensed. Doctor prescribed half tablet of gatomir 15 (mirtazapine) at night and 1 tablet of zotral 50 (sertraline) at morning for 15 days. However 7+ days are past but he is not eating properly and we does not see much improvement. Can you please explain is it normal while taking anti depression medicines, and is this medicine is ok? Can we wait for some more time for improvement or we contact our doctor to change medicines?

Hi lybrate-user, He is not suffering from Depression any more its taken form of Mania. A manic episode is characterized by period of at least 1 week where an elevated, expansive or unusually irritable mood, as well as notably persistent goal-directed activity is present. The mood disturbance associated with manic symptoms should be observable by others (e. G. Friends or relatives of the individual) and must be uncharacteristic of the individual’s usual state/behavior. These feelings must be sufficiently severe to cause difficulty or impairment in occupational, social, educational or other important functioning. Symptoms also cannot be the result of substance use or abuse (e. G. Alcohol, drugs, medications) or caused by a general medical condition. Three or more of the following symptoms must be present: Inflated self-esteem or grandiosity Decreased need for sleep (e. G. One feels rested after only 3 hours of sleep) More talkative than usual or pressure to keep talking Flight of ideas or subjective experience that thoughts are racing Attention is easily drawn to unimportant or irrelevant items Increase in goal-directed activity (either socially, at work or school, or sexually) or psychomotor agitation Excessive involvement in pleasurable activities that have a high potential for painful consequences (e. G. Engaging in unrestrained buying sprees, sexual indiscretions, or foolish business investments). Now when the situation alters between episodes of depression and Mania it is called BIPOLAR MOOD DISORDER and it will need a fresh treatment. So I advise you to get the medication changed if it is not helping your father.
