Hello! It seems that you're suffering from tensive headache which is a common occurrence in students/working people. You should take regular breaks between studies, don't study in dim light, use table & chair to study. Take enough water and nutritious diet throughout the day. You may even take homoeopathic medicines to control your symptoms.

Dear , because you have not given any other symptoms other than headache and memory loss, the problem seems to be stress related. Tension means in one way anxiety or stress. You are aged 44. There could be many reasons to get stressed or to be anxious about. Stress is part of everyday life. We need know the stress and learn to live with it. Fighting the stress causes anxiety. Anxiety and apprehension further causes negative and obsessive thinking. Please let me know your stress and life pattern. I will help you overcome those areas with positive approach and cognitive therapy. Take care.

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 is a new exercise called Super Brain Yoga, which is done by holding the right earlobe with your left thumb and index finger, and the left earlobe with your right hand’s thumb and index finger. In this position, you must squat down and rise up and do this for five minutes every day. There is 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. Blueberries, walnuts, turmeric, Spinach, tomatoes, broccoli, acorn squash, green tea, oily fish, boiled egg, turkey, apples, oatmeal, leafy greens, lentils, pumpkin seeds, avocado, cinnamon, thyme, sunflower seeds, and red wine. Avoid sugar and junk food.

Being fearful, will make you avoid situations which can effect your overall quality of life and not just your career. The more you avoid the more situation will get worse, so it is like a vicious circle. If you find difficult to express yourself in social situations, it is important for you to consult a psychologist, who can help you overcome this.

Excessive attachment in any form is harmful for any human being. Loving someone doesn't mean you don't love yourself or stop making yourself a priority. At such a young age, love seems to be the only need in the world. But as you will mature, you will realsie that the most important thing for a person is to be financially and emotionally independent. Only a human who is independent gets the deserved respect in any relationship. Follow your dreams, follow something which excites you and attain financial independence. Next is emotional independence. If you are unable to achieve this, there is no harm in taking professional help from a counceller or psychiatrist. You have your whole life ahead of you. Don't waste it for someone who doesn't respect you as much as you do. Good luck.

Glook at your thoughts as just thoughts. Don't give them importance and meaning when you are feeling anxiety and panic. There isn't as much danger in situations as you have predicted. Do have a realistic view of the situation. Also don't underestimate your capabilities to solve any problems or protect yourself when the time comes. Assess your environment and see what and who can help you when you need help. With this assessment you will feel more in control of yourself and the situation. Your anxiety n panic will be reduced. Besides the above do physical exercise and deep breathing exercises everyday.

You must be doing lot of labour so to give rest to your mind you need proper sleep for relaxation of your mind. Don't try to interfere in natural course otherwise you will be nowhere. With proper concentration one can learn more in two hours rather than 4 hrs of study with tired and disturbed concentration. Hope you can understand my Suggestion..

I've been taking anti-depressants on the recommendation of my psychiatrist, but they seem to be making no difference and instead have multiple side-effects. Currently, I've tried Spenzo, Prestiq, Unidex 100, Clobazam, Ec Pan. In the past, I tried Modafinil and it did seem to work by making me energized and more active. Should I change psychiatrists? Try different medication? Or try Modafinil as an anti-depressant?

Since you have tried so many medications and still say results r not there, confirm the diagnosis again, by psychomteric tests and it is wise to get another psychiatrist opinion. All the best.

My brother have some problems when he listen  the sad song so he is crying I ask why are you crying so he doesn't ,  ...
It is possible that certain sad songs are bringing back his old sad memories. Or may be he is so sad because of certain events in his life, that he has become like a pressure cooker with sad feelings. That is why with any slight provocation from the environment his feelings are coming out. Probably he has never expressed his grief, pain and sadness. These feelings need an outlet. He is in pain. May be you can tell him that it is difficult for you to see him suffering like this. You can also tell him that you are concerned about him and you love him. He might open up. If required, ask him to talk to a counsellor or any of his friend or close relative whom he can trust.

What is addiction and how to determine if someone is addicted to any thing like smoking, alcohol etc.

Addiction is a condition that results when a person ingests a substance (e.g., alcohol, cocaine, nicotine) or engages in an activity (e.g., gambling, sex, shopping) that can be pleasurable but the continued use/act of which becomes compulsive and interferes with ordinary life responsibilities, such as work, relationships, or health. Users may not be aware that their behavior is out of control and causing problems for themselves and others. The word addiction is used in several different ways. One definition describes physical addiction. This is a biological state in which the body adapts to the presence of a drug so that drug no longer has the same effect, otherwise known as a tolerance. Another form of physical addiction is the phenomenon of overreaction by the brain to drugs (or to cues associated with the drugs). An alcoholic walking into a bar, for instance, will feel an extra pull to have a drink because of these cues.If he i s unable to leave the substance or withdrawal of which produces physical and mental disturbance we can decide he is addicted to it

I think that you are lacking in confidence and that pressure is leading to an anger related depression. If you are doubtful about yourself then do group study with a friend or some colleagues. If there is any weakness in certain disciplines take some tutoring help. Even if you are good, it will help to have someone monitor you. Lack of sleep will cause you more distress and therefore more of poor memory. You should meet with a counselor and talk about your feelings. You will feel a lot better and a lot of things will improve. You must eat well, especially breakfast: whole grains, vegetables, fruits, nuts, eggs, fish, berries, avocado, and reduce fat in your diet. Use either olive oil or coconut oil for the cooking. Exercise and meditation are also excellent.

10 Things You Must Know About Procrastination

Ph. D - Psychology, Psychology

Procrastination is a way of sabotaging oneself by putting off activities and delaying success. This is an emotional and mental obstacle that many people face in varying degrees. So here is everything you need to know about procrastination.

  1. It becomes a lifestyle: As per medical research, about 20% of the people who procrastinate, have been doing it on a chronic basis and can now safely say that this is a lifestyle and not just a habit that one has fallen prey to.
  2. It is cultivated: Contrary to popular belief, procrastination is not something that anyone is born with. It is cultivated with constant inaction over a period of years, which also includes the act of making excuses to put off a task.
  3. Excessive alcohol consumption: In many cases, procrastinators will end up enjoying higher consumption of alcohol than their contemporaries. This may be done to alleviate boredom before the excessive consumption becomes a habit, which further dulls the senses.
  4. Hiding from the truth: It has been seen that procrastinators often lie to themselves or hide the truth about their problem by making mindless excuses, which do not actually exist. They are chronic liars who come to believe their lies, which can give rise to even more severe behavioural issues.
  5. Distractions: Most people who procrastinate will look for distractions that will keep them from doing their work properly. This may include watching television or eating, or even doing mindless chores that are not important.
  6. Focus: Many of these procrastinators have problems when it comes to focusing and finding solutions for various tasks. They cannot prioritise and put their mind to a certain task, which also prevents them from understanding the requirements for completing that task.
  7. Avoiders: These types of procrastinators usually avoid doing the tasks that will lead them to success. They do not make the effort to carry out the necessary tasks in a proper manner.
  8. Decisional procrastinators: These kind of procrastinators simply cannot find the motivation to take a decision that will change the direction of their lives by putting one step in front of the other on a daily basis.
  9. Cost of procrastination: There is a huge cost that is borne by these kinds of people in the long run. While missing deadlines, losing jobs and not graduating from college are just some of the consequences, many of them also come down with a plethora of health conditions including gastrointestinal diseases.
  10. Therapy for procrastination: The best way to transform a procrastinator is with the help of cognitive behavioural therapy, which can help in reprogramming the brain with fruitful, guided discussions and internal dialogues. This kind of therapy works well in the long run.
