Be more confident and overcome your fears. Deal with situations as and when they come. Do not try to project your fears. In case of any situation and anybody tries to poke you be courageous and confident enough to not let anybody ride over you. You are the controller of your situation.

Hello Doctor, I am writing this question on behalf of my dad who is 70 years old. Recently he had open heart surgery while he was @ 67 yrs old and since after that he pretend/ act very smart and active. Not sure whether it is related to post heart surgery effects. Marriage life of my dad is not that good and I have personally seen my dad and mom fighting always. I guess it had a negative impact in their sexual life as well. Recently we had two instance (Sexual Harassment) happened within our home to my relatives when they came to our home. Since it happened to our own family member, we didn't react and didn't ask him regarding the same. We would like to get higher opinion from you and also if possible could you please provide any low dose tablet, so that we can cure this in starting stage itself. We worry that if he does the same outside home to any unknow ladies in public it would be an issue. Kindly provide your valuable suggestion.

Hello Doctor,
I am writing this question on behalf of my dad who is 70 years old. Recently he had open heart surgery ...
Hi, the signs/ symptoms as seen in your dad are indicative of repressed anger and emotions owing possibly to a dissatisfied married life which probably is getting vented out in a manner as described by you. First and foremost, in order that he is not obsessively compelled to think negative and imagine stuff, it is important for you to assure him time and again that everything is perfectly ok and distract him to either watching, visualizing or doing something meaningful, relaxing and one that gives him a sense of inner strength and positive energy/ vibes. Listening to a soothing and inspiring music also helps to stay calm and relaxed. He needs to plan his day, listing out the things to be achieved and get going about them one by one. He requires to be on a healthy and balanced diet with focus on leafy greens and fresh fruits. He needs to take plenty of water daily and stay hydrated. It is important that he keeps his lifestyle streamlined and does walking/ light exercise, yoga et al in fresh air. It is good to get exposed to the early morning sunlight for 5 to 10 minutes daily. He must keep his stress levels low and stay relaxed and focused. He can enjoy his favorite yet lightweight films/ serials/ cartoons et al as he would like to watch and get some interesting yet light stories to read while he retires to bed. He can take a glass of warm milk with a pinch of fresh turmeric powder and a tsp of honey mixed to the same, at bed time. Homeopathic remedy staphysagria 12c/ 30c potency suits this particular condition. At the same time, I would also advise you to see a psychologist in person and seek independent opinion. All the very best and take care.

Living with Grief and Loss - How to Cope With it?

Living with Grief and Loss - How to Cope With it?

People often experience grief when they lose something special or someone very valuable to them. This feeling of grief and loss tends to have various adverse effects one one’s personality, relationships and health. The effects of grief on a person usually depend on different factors, which include the kind of loss suffered, the person’s beliefs, age and his mental or physical health.

Losing someone makes each one of us in a different way. Anxiety and feeling helpless are two things that mostly affect people. Feelings of anger and anxiety are also experienced in the early stages of coping with loss. The sadness creeps in eventually. Grief and loss can affect a person seriously and cause different health hazards. It is quite difficult for a person to heal instantly and they continue feeling bad for a long period of time. However, one day you will recover for sure.

Here are some ways to cope with grief and loss:

  1. You have to express yourself and share all the feelings bottled inside you. You should talk about your feelings with a close friend or family member. This is the beginning of the healing process.
  2. When you feel sad, you should not try to avoid it. Feeling sad is a healthy part of the process of grieving and instead of hiding the fact that you are sad under a mask, you should allow the sadness.
  3. Try to follow your regular schedule instead of isolating yourself. By following a schedule you will keep yourself active, which will help in healing. You should take walks and not lock yourself up in a room as this will make your condition worse.
  4. Plenty of sleep is required during the healing stage. Emotional strain makes you tired and hence, undisturbed sleep is very much essential for your health. If you do not get proper sleep, consult a doctor.
  5. A healthy, balanced diet is also important for coping with loss and grief. Avoid food that will wear you down. Eat light and healthy and do not skip meals.
  6. You must avoid intake of substances, which help in easing the pain. Do not consume too much alcohol. It may temporarily numb the pain, but afterwards you will feel worse.
  7. Counselling is important after you get through the initial healing stage on your own. After several weeks or a month, you should go to a counselor and have regular therapy sessions. The ideal time to start counselling depends wholly on you and your state.
  8. Antidepressant medicines can also be taken on prescription for feeling better.

Coping with grief and loss is quite a difficult task. A lot of patience is required and instead of giving into sorrow, one must get up and take all steps required for quick recovery. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.

I am student of class 12th and my exams are near. My problem is that I can not concentrate on studies. What should I do?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Some of your problem may be true because of your age. I suspect that you are going through a spurt in the production of the male sex hormone, which affects you in three ways quite unknown to you. First, there will be a sexual agenda that it will kick off, secondly, there will be aggressiveness and rebelliousness, and thirdly, you will suffer from acne and pimple problems. This is the effect of the hormone that has a duration of almost two years and you will have no control over it. But if you have a good value system you will tide over this phase without significant damage. The hormonal imbalances may not only impact your memory because of the chemical but also bring along some distractions that come with it. But you may work on the following even if the hormones kick in: 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 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 you and the family go for counseling too.

You are distracting from your aim. It shows weakness of your mind and nothing else. Just control your mind and think about your future. Studies is the easiest way to attain success and sometimes even glory. You will realise my words after few years. Just concentrate your mind on your studies and be focused because you will be known by your own name only after you attain heights and studies is a short cut to attain new heights. So always keep this in mind and target your goals, you will never forget. I will help you in this direction by prescribing you homoeopathic medicines----------- bacoppa monneri (wilmar schwabe india) chew 2 tab twice daily------- bren-up (allen) drink 2 spoon 3 times daily------------- bramhari pranayam daily for 15 minutes ------- report after 30 days-----------------

Dear lybrate-user, If your weight loss is due to severe anxiety, you should go for anxiety treatment rather than worrying about weight loss alone. Be happy - you don't have any serious illness causing weight loss. You can also consult a dietitian about weight gaining diet.

I met a girl few months ago on social site. We spoke friendly way for someday. She started calling me, texting me every day, one fine day she called me up in the morning. First time I went to meet her she told me that she wants to come home with me, I was not very interested in her so I denied and dropped her home at night. Then she started calling me, texting me every day, she called me and came to my house, this time she kissed me (No intercourse at all) and started flirting with me. I don't know why but I also started responding to her. After that we started meeting up in week ends for next 3-4 weeks, talking over the phone at night. But before that I had lover so I told this girl that I am planning to get married soon. So I told lets not love or do marriage and she told me its fine we can speak upto your marriage and we can drop. But I did not say exact marriage date to her. I told a date month after. But after that she found it from my fb id that I got married a month before. So now she feel cheated I guess. So she is black mailing that I will say everything to your wife and destroy your life. What should I do? I apologized for everything to her and still she is ruining my life and I feel like hell.

Good Morning ~ If you’ve taken self-help steps and made positive lifestyle changes and still find your depression getting worse, seek professional help. Needing additional help doesn’t mean you’re weak. Sometimes the negative thinking in depression can make you feel like you’re a lost cause, but depression can be treated and you can feel better!

How can I rid off from smoking And what are the side effects of sudden stop of smoking.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You must try and try again. Very few people succeed in their first attempt. Your persistence will eventually pay off. The urge to discontinue is hampered by many factors but the worst of them is the conditioning. In fact these conditions can exist all through the day unlike other addictions. But your desire to want to stop is the most important factor. It is important to find out about the ill-effects of smoking to have a reason that alarms you about continuing in the habit. The information is really scary but true. The nicotine in tobacco smoke stimulates the heart beat to raise the blood pressure in no time at all. So you must avoid it like the plague: it is just very bad medicine for you. In fact it is highly toxic too. You will need to stop smoking or consuming any tobacco related items with immediate effect. You should start vigorous 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. You may also 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 also 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. 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. You will get easily agitated and develop a short fuse. If you used a nicotine patch a lot of these withdrawal symptoms will cease.

Dear , Smoking weed is a substance abuse disorder and comes under addiction disorder. You are addicted to weed and therefore, you should consult a deaddiction specialist for deaddiction treatment. You may stop it abruptly, but there is a possibility of withdrawal symptoms and relapse. Take care.

Few visits to a counselor or a psychologist to help him work on his fear should take care of this. He will then have to practice the techniques he learns. Both cbt and other stress management techniques like visualization and relaxation will help. I would also strongly recommend that it is a good idea to also go over his study techniques. If they are not effective then that in itself may cause exam fear. If you address the issue from both the front that will help. If you comfortable working online feel free to consult me. Hope this helps wishing you very best.

Dear Ranjith , at your age we are all generally sensitive and find it difficult to take jokes. But we need to understand a couple of things - we feel bad only either we know that what our friends are saying is right - and we have been trying hard to hide our shortcomings , which our friend has pointed out- in such a case work on your shortcoming and thank your friend to be a true one. But many times our friends are trying to have a good time at our expense, question yourself - Do I real need such friends? Secondly, are they some authority in certifying others? The more you react to such jokes , the more fun they derive from teasing you, so start ignoring or begin to be part of it - once you stop reacting , their enjoyment would be over & then they will stop teasing. If the jokes are to do with your height or weight - raise your height by achieving something extraordinary - so that they look up to you, reduce your weight to look fit and agile.

I am 21 and I have a boyfriend from college. We are very happy now. But something's from past gets in mind once in a while. My boyfriend has a girl best friend who is not too close to people. Last year my boyfriend went to a college tour. She got too close and cozy to him during it. He dint bother as he is always open to friends. When they returned I heard of them and got really angry with him. I thought she was emotionally close to him. But she also started to be physically close, holding hands while walking, sitting etc. And even talking of it. So after I heard of it and got angry he said it was not anything bad and he just allowed best friends as they should be. Later the month when that girl was more talking to another friend, my boyfriend got sad thinking that their friendship was fading. He got angry to her little .when she asked why, he said he didn't wanted to lose her best friendship and that he was possessive of her love and care she gave him. She convinced him that no one could take his place. He wanted her friendship back and they talked that way being emotional sent and all. When I told him to limit his friendship with her he said he wouldn't leave her friend as he is equally important to him as I am .I an his girl friend and she is his best friend. That hurted me to hear that he was too attached with his best friend . Later I got depressed and once I saw his chats with her during their friendship re union and all, I hated him .and got sad. He also got sad for making me sad. And said he didn't wanted to be selfish. His friends are friends. Nothing more. And he wanted them. Later due to my complaining he reduced his friendship. She also understood. Now we are hapy. But I thought I was mean even though I was hurt. So I told him he could be best friends again. He was happy to hear. I want to forget that memory of those days when they occur sometimes now. I want to forgive her and let her out of mind.

The past looms over us - especially the bad memories. No need to be guilty of being selfish - in all relationships, clear boundaries need to be laid down right from the beginning, so that there are no misunderstandings later on. So, what you did was absolutely right. As for the memories disturbing you, focus on where you want to take your relationship from here - it is always our choice what we want to remember from the past - if you remember the sweet memories they will grow bigger in your mind. To forgive her, all you have to do is relax, take a few deep breaths, close your eyes and while releasing your breath, say to yourself i'm free, I free you. And forgive her. The anger will only come back, if you think about that episode negatively, if you see it like any other incident, then it will not hurt you.

Too much distraction is a problem and may be induced by stress which you may not be aware of. If you meet with a counselor it will help. In the meantime do the following regularly: 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.

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 or coconut 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.

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 you and the family go for counseling too.
