My brother is suffering from psychiatric problem(Schizophrenia) since 25 years. Medicine is continuing. His behavior is like normal, but he is purchasing news papers and wrtting in news paper for whole day. No improvement brought over that. Can You suggest how to escape from that.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Your brother is obviously not on a rehabilitation program of occupational therapy. Mere medical approach will not suffice. He needs to know how to spend his time productively; and his mind and body needs to be engaged in some useful manner. His mind is already busy with disturbing thoughts and it needs to be distracted and focused in activities that can train the brain to trigger more healthy neuronal pathways and thus become a healthy person. He may ideally contact a psychotherapist for this follow up. Additionally, I could suggest some exercises that he could do to serve the same purpose. You may contact me if you need them.

Stop all contact with him. Delete his number from mobile, unfriend him on FB. Discard all the things related to him. Always try to remain in friends company. Or try to busy yourself in some activity. For counselling help do consult.

The stress that you feel is not dependent on the stressor: It is entirely dependent on your perception of stress. Change your perception, there is no stress: it’s like looking at a glass half full or half empty. Life is difficult no doubt, as a general rule, but what we do adds to the stress in our response. We add to the stress of life instead of reducing it or learning to deal with it. Many of us follow a policy of avoidance, like your question seeks. We cannot do that all of our lives. So the first thing to do is to change your perception. For example, look at it as a challenge that you would like to meet with a positive outlook. See everything as a gift from God to perform as though you are doing it for Him. God never gives us work to do beyond our capacity. Now you may argue that it is the Government that is giving all the work. That is true in the overt sense, but if you look at it with spiritual eyes, you know that it is ultimately given by God. Secondly, build a good constitution mentally, emotionally and physically to combat stress. Eat healthily, sleep well, and exercise regularly. Talk about your emotions regularly to a good friend every day. Learn stress management techniques, which is all about expressing your feelings in appropriate ways. Do Yoga and meditation. Pray every day to God to give you the strength, and offer your work as a prayer to Him – you will give your best and you will feel so satisfied when you do it well. At work you must learn to delegate much or some of your work to subordinates. If you do not trust, you will find it difficult to delegate.

Hi, This question is mostly related to a psychiatrist. My ex boyfriend met with an accident recently. He had got a leg fracture. He wants to talk to me. Presently I am engaged to someone else. If I talk to my ex even once then my ex will start calling me everyday. I just do not understand. Should I talk to my ex?

MBB, DPM
Psychiatrist, Noida
The answer to your question you only have. What you want to do, you want to continue with your ex-then go ahead, if you want to continue in a new relation say bye to your ex. At a time you can't ride two boats and think you can cross river. The choice is yours, how comfortable you want your life.

I am suffering from depression and anxiety. I am many times go on depression. So what I do.
Dear Lybrate-User, Thank you for reaching out. Depression can be tough. It is important for you to consult a counselor to explore the reasons why you feel depressed and anxious. In the meanwhile, here are a few things you can try: 1. Get into a routine and try doing one thing that you enjoy everyday. This could be as simple as eating your favorite snack. 2. Exercise everyday, since this will help your body feel better. 3. Finish each day by imagining its best parts: At the end of each day write down the things from your day you are most thankful for. Please consult privately for further help. Good luck.

You are going through grief, which is normal after loss of a loved one. Time is the healer for the emotional and behavioral changes, however if your depression is severe enough to affect you in a significant manner, kindly consult a psychiatrist for short term antidepressant medication, depending on the complaints.

Some medication to quit smoking so that one can just dislike to smoke a cigarette and or ganja/ charts.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Only by using strong will power and avoiding all situations where you feel like smoking, chewing tobacco or drinking or using drugs/ weed, avoiding friends who smoke and diverting mind by reading or chewing a gum, like NICORETTE and taking a walk when you crave for a smoke can all help. You can chew Nicorette gum which is nicotine replacement. There are medicines available. Which can be prescribed if asked personally Cigarette smoking is a leading preventable cause of mortality. It kills more than 60 lakh people worldwide every year. More than 50% of regular smokers would invariably die from tobacco-related illnesses which includes heart attack, cancer or asthmatic lung diseases. Best age to stop smoking is before 40 31st May is “World No Tobacco Day” Quitting smoking before the age of 40 is associated with larger decline in premature death than stopping it at a later date. Best age therefore to stop smoking is before 40. However, stopping smoking even after the age of 50 is still associated with lower risk of death as compared to those who continue to smoke. Even in smokers aged 80 years or more, quitting smoking appears to reduce some mortality.

Dear doctors, over thinking and confusion are also called stress? Is Over thinking or confusion also called stress?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Dear doctors, over thinking and confusion are also called stress? Is Over thinking or confusion also called stress?
They are not called stress: overthinking and confusion m ay be because of stress or may be the cause of stress. You are on medication to reduce stress so you need to work with a counselor too, and identify where this started and treat the same over a period of time. The combination is ideal for a good resolution. It is not enough to give these symptoms a name. It is vitally important to get the right therapy for them and resolve the problem. Normally, these symptoms are a sign of some fear. In counseling, I would advise you to get some help around this fear and resolve it for a good experience to life hereafter.

You have to burn more then you eat to become thin, this is the main rule body gains weight due to different reasons like improper digestion, acidity, constipation, side-effects of some medicine, low physical activity. You can follow some tips in daily routine. 1. After every meal, drink 1 cup boiling water with spoon sip by sip. After half an hour you have taken meal do this daily. 2. Try to avoid eating heavy food after 7 pm. As it takes time to digest heavy food. 3. Drink 1 glass water half an hour before meal. 4. Drink 2 glasses of lukewarm warm daily in morning. 5.

I am doing own memory for this reason I have a lot of problem so please suggest me.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
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.

There are no health benefits of smoking. Smoking causes lung and oral cancer as well as interstitial lung disease. It affects peripheral blood vessels adversely and can cause respiratory and circulatory issues. It is advisable to quit immediately. Consult a psychiatrist with experience in deaddiction. With the right medication and counseling it is likely that you will be able to quit smoking successfully.

Dear friend most likely you will not have any major psychiatric illness. Probably for some reason you might be feeling stressed and low. When you are not at the best of your emotional health you will have trouble doing things with focus and concentration. You need to work on both stress management as well as improve your concentration. For stress management you coukd try some relaxation exercise and meditation. Also physical exercise work as a great stress relief mechanism. Along with the good eating and sleeping habits help as well. Engaging yourself into other activities like reading gardening walking listening to good music and even helping someone in need all these things helps you begin a positive cycle. And following tips will help you with concentration. Concentration is a mental skill that you can develop. There are two ways to improve your concentration: first, raise your brain's natural ability to concentrate. In other words, increase your attention. Second, adjust the environment around you to make concentrating easier. To improve your concentration takes a little time and effort, but it can be worth it. In my personal experience with students. This can make noticeable improvement in a relatively short time. Ideas for daily concentration-boosting habits include: mindfulness meditation - many studies confirm that 20 minutes of meditation or more per day improves concentration and attention span. Focusing on your breathing, known as mindfulness meditation, is one of the simplest way of meditation. Start with ten minutes in the morning and ten minutes before bed. Proper sleep -i am sorry to say it. Pulling all nighter will not help with your grade. Unless you are getting sufficient restful sleep, you are not going to be as mentally focused as you could be. Brain game -. The more you use certain skills, the more they are reinforced in the brain. So it makes sense that playing concentration games and games that require you to focus will improve your concentration ability. You need to be consistent in this. Play for about 10 to 20 minutes each day. Have fun, and get the benefits but remember not to spend more than 20 minutes a day. Your goal is to improve your concentration and not the score in the game! eat healthier - your brain needs the proper nutrients to allow you to focus. Eat more vegetables and fruits and avoid consumption of junk food as much as possible. Lot of research has now proven that sugar is very harmful for our health. Reduce sugar and refined white floor in your diet as much as you could. Exercise is helpful in both reducing stress and increasing focus. At-least 20 minutes a day would go a long way. Optimize your mental state & environment in addition to building the habits described above into your daily routine, also adjust your environment and your current mental state to improve your concentration when studying. Create a study spot. Your brain loves routine. Create a place where all you do is study. An obvious choice is a secluded desk of some kind, but the trick is to make sure you only study in that spot. Studying in bed is a bad habit, for example, because your body is trained to want to sleep once you get into bed. Remove distractions. Turn off the ringer on your phone and take other steps to prevent interruptions. Don't study with the television on or with talk radio playing. Some studies have shown that soft instrumental music (no vocals) can help improve your concentration. Block background noises. If you have to study or work in an environment where it is too loud (classroom or open space) or too quiet (such as at home or at a library) you can get easily distracted by outside influences. With the right amount of background noise you can actually block out distractions and enhance your creative thinking. Use time boxes. Set a time limit when you need to study new material. For example, let's say you want to read one chapter in a book (and remember it). Decide in advance that you can have 45 minutes to read the chapter, and 15 minutes to review it. Set a timer to keep yourself honest, then pace yourself to keep within the allotted time. Stay motivated with rewards. If you see studying as burden, it's hard to concentrate. One way to stay motivated is to set up a reward system. Tell yourself you have to earn that hour of watching your favorite show later in the evening by first completing one hour of intense studying. That way, even if the material is dry, you have the reward to look forward to. Take a break every two hours. You mental energy will begin to decline after a long period of study. So every two hours or so, take a ten minute break. Walk around, eat a light snack, or just stare at the wall to relax your mind. Concentrating is the first step to learning anything new. It only makes sense that if you improve your concentration, your memory will improve also. If you have further question or need personal help feel free to contact me hope this helps wishing you very best,
