You are maintain a strong relationship with her. You take it easy. She also treat to you like that or you do any mistakes. Analyse yourself. Ok what happened it is over. Do not think too much about her. She has no feelings on you. There is no strong intimacy between both. Then leave it. Why do you spoil yourself. Girls are coming and going in our life. There are not become long time friends. She has no feelings on you. Then why do you think about her. Better to leave it. Forget those days. Better to mingle with others. Share your feelings with your family members and friends. Do not be alone. Be sociable. Develop a very good career. Think about yourself. Marry one good girl. Then think about your family. Do not waste time. Do not think too much unnecessary things. Ok best of luck. My best wishes.

I am 25 years old, I am getting angry very soon and also frustrated. What should I do?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

Now anger is pure energy and people mistakenly think that they must express anger violently, or aggressively, or they can damage something, or throw a fit, or kill, or hurt, or withdraw, etc. These expressions can be followed, if they are appropriate to the situation. You can instead simply talk about the feeling, write about it and share it with someone who understands, scream and shout in a situation which warrants it and so on. The right thing to do however, is to find out why you are angry and whether it stems from some recent event or has it got roots way back from your past. In either case it would do good to meet with a counselor and deal with it effectively in therapy.

When the expression is most suitable, the repercussions are minimized and the other person tends to understand and is willing to apologize and sort out the matter. Many of us are inclined to worry about the consequences of expressing anger and use fear to suppress the legitimate expression. You can exorcise your anger out of your system by exercising, but it is the energy that is expended not the feeling. You can also hand over the feeling to god, if you are a spiritual person, and very effectively too.

Dear, Tobacco is addictive. Cigarette also contains 4000+ carcinogenic chemicals other than nicotine. The best method is to leave it and continue with your will power. There are other methods like Nicotine Replacement therapy and pharmacotherapy combined. If your friend ready to stop smoking and willing to get the support she need, she can recover from nicotine addiction and abuse abuse?no matter how bad the addiction or how powerless she feel. The first step in treating nicotine addiction is accepting that she have a problem. Confronting an addiction and accepting responsibility for her actions isn?t easy. But it?s a necessary step on the road to treatment and recovery. She should then consult a psychiatrist / psychologist who fill follow this treatment. 1. Detoxification using medicines. 2. Behavior modification with the help of therapies. 3. Counseling. 4. Medication to sustain and 5. Long term support. These given steps are essential for any addict to get effectively rid of smoking. Therefore, you need take her and stick to the treatment plan and cooperate with your psychiatrist / psychologist. Take care.

I am always feeling unreal and forgetting things very often. What may be the disease?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
I hope I am wrong that your use of the word ?unreal? is meant to be understood as difficulty facing life than something more sinister. If, on the other hand, you mean that you are disconnected from the world around you and you feel that you don?t belong to your surroundings, you could be looking at something serious. In that case you must take your parents and visit a counselor first and on that person?s recommendations you could be asked to meet with a doctor. I don?t know how long this has been going on but do not delay and the earlier it is dealt with the better for you. When symptoms like this appear in early adolescence, it could mean something more serious. Equally encouraging is that the earlier it is treated; the changes can be better and permanent.

Chest paining from 2 days may be bcz of chain smoking . please guide Me any medicine or way to leave smoke.
If you really have the desire to quit smoking then only you can quit otherwise nothing can do anything. Soo all you need is to calculate how mny cigarette you smoke per day. Jst quit 1 cig per week. Say your taking 20 cig per day jst quit 1.19 cig per day do it for one week. Next week take 18 per day. Like this way quit jst 1 cig per week. N after few weeks you gonna see that you have quit it. That's the easiest way. Remember this only help you if you have burning desire to quit.

Please get yourself evaluated thoroughly by medical expert to rule out any medical problem. In case that is ruled out, then this is a case of Anxiety which leads to Panic attack and shows in form of breathlessness. Anxiety issues can be helped effectively by getting Jacobson Progressive Muscle Relaxation Therapy from a psychologist. It can be taught by them ad you can practice at home. It is a therapy where each and every muscle of body is relaxed and with continuous practice, this helps in easing the anxiety. Other method is hypnotherapy to help find the root cause of anxiety as there are many reasons for anxiety to be present. Hypnotherapy is a well known tool for helping in anxiety.

and from last 4 5 months. I was in stress bcoz of my mba ? Is this the reason behind that ?
Dear Lybrate user. Excess study without taking care of your natural ability and health, exerts stress on your body and mind. That is natural. Stress is simply a reaction to a stimulus that disturbs our physical or mental equilibrium. In other words, it's an omnipresent part of life. A stressful event can trigger the “fight-or-flight” response, causing hormones such as adrenaline and cortisol to surge through the body. A little bit of stress, known as “acute stress,” can be exciting—it keeps us active and alert. But long-term, or “chronic stress,” can have detrimental effects on health. You may not be able to control the stressors in your world, but you can alter your reaction to them. Physical exercise, creative activities, deep breathing, being away from the situation for sometime etc can help you tackle the stress. I need to know, what are the causes with which you are stressed? Once you know the reason, you will be able to adjust with it with some psycho therapy methods. Please let me know the details. Anyhow, there is nothing to worry. Most of the psychological problems can be cured with scientific therapy methods. Take care.

What foods should be taken to boost memory power?

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
Pediatrician,
Research shows that diets high in saturated fat (from sources such as red meat, whole milk, butter, cheese, cream, and ice cream) increase your risk of dementia and impair concentration and memory. Eat more fruit and vegetables. Produce is packed with antioxidants, substances that protect your brain cells from damage opt for wholegrains like everything else in your body, the brain cannot work without energy. The ability to concentrate and focus comes from the adequate, steady supply of energy - in the form of glucose in our blood to the brain. Achieve this by choosing wholegrains with a low-gi, which release glucose slowly into the bloodstream, keeping you mentally alert throughout the day. Opt for'brown' cereals, wheatbran, granary bread and brown pasta. Mackerel 2. Eat oily fish essential fatty acids (efas) cannot be made by the body and must be obtained through diet. The most effective omega-3 fats occur naturally in oily fish as epa and dha. Good sources include linseed (flaxseed) oil, soya bean oil, pumpkin seeds, walnut oil and soya beans. They are good for healthy brain function, the heart, joints and general wellbeing. Oily fish contains epa and dha in a ready-made form, which enables the body to use it easily. The main sources of oily fish include salmon, trout, mackerel, herring, sardines, pilchards and kippers. Low dha levels have been linked to a higher risk of developing alzheimer's disease and memory loss. Blueberry3. Binge on blueberries evidence accumulated at tufts university in the united states suggests that the consumption of blueberries may be effective in improving or delaying short term memory loss. Widely available, so there's no excuse. Tomatoes 4. Eat more tomatoes there is good evidence to suggest that lycopene, a powerful antioxidant found in tomatoes, could help protect against the kind of free radical damage to cells which occurs in the development of dementia, particularly alzheimer's. 5. Add vitality with vitamins certain b vitamins - b6, b12 and folic acid - are known to reduce levels of homocysteine in the blood. Elevated levels of homocysteine are associated with increased risk of stroke, cognitive impairment and alzheimer's disease. A study of a group of elderly patients with mild cognitive impairment found that after two years of intervention with high doses of b6, b12 and folic acid there was significantly less brain shrinkage compared to a subset given placebo treatment 6. Get a blackcurrant boost vitamin c has long been thought to have the power to increase mental agility. One of the best sources of this vital vitamin are blackcurrants. Pumpkin seeds7. Pick up pumpkin seeds just a handful of pumpkin seeds a day is all you need to get your recommended daily amount of zinc, vital for enhancing memory and thinking skills. Broccoli8. Bet on broccoli a great source of vitamin k, which is known to enhance cognitive function and improve brainpower. Sage9. Sprinkle on sage sage has long had a reputation for improving memory and although most studies focus on sage as an essential oil, it could be worth adding fresh sage to your diet too. Walnuts 10. Go nuts a study published in the american journal of epidemiology suggests that a good intake of vitamin e might help to prevent cognitive decline, particularly in the elderly. Nuts are a great source of vitamin e along with leafy green vegetables, asparagus, olives, seeds, eggs, brown rice and wholegrains.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. The best time tested method to reduce weight and cholesterol is physical exercise and games along with low fat low carb high fiber diet. There are no short cuts in reducing weight. Regarding cholesterol, raw garlic, honey, lemon, cinnamon, turmeric etc are known to reduce cholesterol. Include them in your daily diet. Please do not skip exercise. Take care.

Your mind is obviously very distracted. If this distraction is because of stress as is normally the case, then you will need to attend to that and your concentration will happily return. It may also be that you are not interested in your studies because it may not be suitable to your aptitude. Please meet with a career guidance counselor and do some aptitude tests that will also determine what your natural skills are and then choose an appropriate career and course. If you are not made for long study courses then you could choose to do something technical, instead. I also suspect that the adolescent issues with regard to hormones may have affected your ability to concentrate and have interest in your studies too. When the hormones play up, it lasts for a period of close to two years and during that time you could be influenced by three signs directly impacted by the chemical: you will tend to become aggressive and rebellious, you will become sexually active, and you will have acne and pimple problems. The hormonal imbalances may not only impact your memory because of the chemical but also bring some distractions that come with it. You must be absolutely sure that you are not bored because of these influences to make a radical decision and quit studies. You will regret later and then the time cannot be turned back. For your problems with concentration here are a few guidelines: 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 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. 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. Whatever happens, do not rush your decision and make it with your parents involved and some close teachers who know you well.The following foods do help too: 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. Now take you pick!

If you have been taking depsonil 3tabs every day since past atleast one month then it is not working for you. You need to see your psychiatrist and get the medication checked. If you are having a trouble some environment because of which your depression is not getting better you need to get out of the environment.
