General Physician,
You can increase concentration by mind control, early morning meditation and yoga and a healthy diet plan. Junk foods, over phone and computer usage can decrease concentration.

Hi, I am 26 years old and since past 5 or 6 days I am getting disturbed by some unwanted thoughts. It is related to my sexual orientation. Although I am completely straight because I have been in a relationship with a girl and I was involved in physical intimacy with her, yet I am getting this unwanted thought that I am becoming a gay. This started to happen at a sudden and I have no clue why this is happening. I don't want to live a life by becoming a gay. Please please please help me out, please.

Hi. You are straight and will be straight forever! Keep thinking this way, because the way you think, you start viewing the world in the same way! Positivity attract positive things around you, similarly negative thoughts will give you negative surroundings. Don't get obsessed with the unwanted thoughts. Let you rule on your mind and not mind rule you. Relax, go for a brisk walk early in the morning daily, take frequent deep breaths. Do some stress-relieving exercises (like Pranayam, Anulom-Vilum). Take homoeopathic medicines - Bacopa Monierri Q/ 10 drops in 1/2 cup of water/ thrice daily and Kali Phos. 6x/ once at night - for 20 days. Revert me back.

Excessive sweating may cause for anxiousness. You are suffering from anxiety disorder. You are belong to a very good traditional family. It is better to consult psychiatrist for medicine along with medicine. You need psychological counselling and behaviour therapy. You need both psychiatrist and psychologist. Better to consult initially psychologist. He suggest some of the relaxation methods in that your problems solved it is ok. If not then consult psychiatrist for medical help. It is better to share your internal frustrated thoughts to other friends and family members. Do not sit alone. Do not think too much about past incidents and present status. Feel always comfortable. Better to practice yoga and meditation. Be happy all the time. Be feel fresh all the time. Better to control yourself and come out of this problem. If not possible yourself. Better to take the help of professionals. Be sociable and be happy all the time. Ok best of luck.

Dear, Things are never completely emotional or completely practical. We always carry emotions even if when we think that the decision is practical. So trust your emotions. If you feel not supported and loved by your partner, you can choose to be separate and more happy than present. But if you feel that things can be improved, you can take professional help from a Psychologist. Counselling will help you to take a firm stable decision.

What is the treatment for anxiety problem? how it can be cured? how much time it will take to cure? is the anxiety is a psychological problem?

BASM, MD, MS (Counseling & Psychotherapy), MSc - Psychology, Certificate in Clinical psychology of children and Young People, Certificate in Psychological First Aid, Certificate in Positive Psychology
Psychologist, Palakkad
Anxiety is a psychological problem. You cannot fix a time limit to cure anxiety because it is a defense mechanism of your body. You should not try to cure it. If you cure it, your body' s defense mechanism is shattered. You must be able to distinguish between mental disease and mental disorder. Your problem is a mental disorder. Not a mental disease. Therefore no medicines are required. Mental disorder can be successfully treated with the help of awareness, meditation, psychotherapy techniques, life style changes etc. I think two or three counseling sessions and psycho therapy techniques should solve your problem. Let me know if you are willing to undergo counseling sessions and self esteem building therapy through mobile. Take care.

I'm a student of class 12. I jerk out my semen nearly 5 days a week. I do gyming. and i am facing the problem of weak memory which I can't remember anything after my studies. May I know for what reason i am facing this memory lost problems. So that I can get rid of it. and have a good potential to prepare for my board.

The masturbation is not the reason, though worrying about its effects itself can be trouble enough to disturb you from concentration. Yes, this may be true because of your age. I suspect that you have just been 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, like the masturbation. 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.

Dear lybrate-user. Welcome to lybrate. I can understand. Loosing someone near and dear is called grief and depression related to grief is pretty normal. But this sort of depression does not stay for long. This depression gets cleared within a span of some weeks. The best option for you is to undergo counseling and depression related therapy. Take care.

Hello lybrate-user, whenever there is stress, person may get confused, it happens. Ofcourse take out time for yourself, and meet a psychotherapist, but also try something at home, as in tryand writ down your thoughts, try and live in present- don't keep running in future, even in your mind. Just be 100% wherever you are. Your state shows that your just running, going wherever life takes you, just take a pause, look at yourself, give 5-10 minutesto yourself through meditation.

I have been trying to quit drinking twice. Why is it so difficult to quit drinking?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Don’t get discouraged with relapses with regard to addictions. You must persevere at it again and again until you are victorious. All addictions appease the hedonic drive in us, i.e. we are all driven by a desire to avoid pain and seek pleasure. In life generally, this entails a long effort followed by a short pleasure. Drugs and drinks turn this reality of life on its head by increasing the pleasure and reducing the pain. Naturally we, and animals too, would rather seek this short cut, even if it were to kill us. Apart from that there is dependence and tolerance, two factors that work together, to increase our need for the substance and to need more of it for the same pleasure, over time. These effects condition us psychologically and physically, that giving up becomes a very difficult task. That is why detoxification is recommended for chronic cases to eliminate the physical craving at least to start the process of relatively easier recovery. There is another drive called the Script Drive, which needs elaborate explanations. I recommend you read my book on addictions to understand that more. On the receipt of Rs. 250/-, I can send you a copy postage free. There are also the effects of drinking on driving and accidents that take away so many lives. Absenteeism leads to loss of pay and livelihood. How much damage drinking does to homes, marriages, and families, is simply immeasurable.

Dependent Personality Disorder

Dependent personality disorder (dpd) is one of a cluster of disorders defined by symptoms of anxiety and fear. The specific, identifying symptoms include:

  • being emotionally dependent on others; feeling they can’t take care of themselves
  • investing a lot of time and effort in trying to please significant people
  • displaying clingy, passive and needy behavior
  • avoiding disagreements for fear of losing approval and support
  • experiencing separation anxiety and intense fear of abandonment
  • finding it hard to be alone
  • putting the needs of others before their own
  • tolerating mistreatment and abuse for fear of disapproval and abandonment
  • being crushed, and feeling helpless, when relationships end – and forming new relationships as soon as possible
  • being unable to make even the simplest decision without the input and reassurance of others
  • rarely taking the initiative
  • avoiding personal responsibility
  • avoiding responsible jobs and careers that require independent, autonomous functioning
  • being over-sensitivity to criticism
  • feeling negative and pessimistic; expecting to disappoint and fail
  • having low self esteem and lacking confidence, including a belief that they are unable to care for themselves.
  • The cause of disorder is still unclear, and probably includes both a genetic and environmental component. Some researchers have speculated that it could be linked to an authoritarian or overprotective parenting style – which acts as a trigger for a genetic predisposition.

Treatment is usually initially sought for some other problem or concern – such as feeling overwhelmed – so that they can’t cope with life. Also, sufferers will often have a mood disorder so they seek help for depression or anxiety at first.

The normal treatment for this particular disorder is counselling or psychotherapy. However, the emphasis is short term therapy so the person doesn’t form a dependency – and then look to the counsellor to take care of them. Prognosis with support is generally good.

I always can't remember think perfect I always forget think and my mind always go for many thinking in which I have been looser for such thing. I don't have confident in myself I always think that I am a looser.

Hi, you need to learn to manage your stress. You can discuss with me to learn stress management at work. Practice yoga and meditation. Although you could technically consider yoga your daily exercise, practicing the deep stretches and slow body movements will help you to clear your mind. Meditating - clearing your mind - while practicing gentle yoga will give double the relaxation effect to ease your stress. Use guided imagery to imagine a place that makes you feel at peace. Imagine somewhere that you feel happy; focus on the details to fully remove your mind from the present. Do yoga alone or in a group setting to help you learn new poses. As you advance in your yoga, you will be able to form complex stretches that force you to focus and take your mind off your stress. Practice deep relaxation by doing progressive muscle relaxation. This is when you work through your body by tensing your muscles, holding the tension for ten seconds, and then releasing it. This will soften and relieve all the muscles in your body.
