Is memory loss always a part of aging?

PhD (Psychology), MSc Psychology, MS
Psychologist,
Dear , almost 99%. At your age, memory problems like amnesia are not common. Many young people are having problems with memory. These problems are either they are too busy or due to anxiety and stress. Busy people use organizers or employ a personal assistant because they can't remember every task. You need to understand this. If you still say, you are having memory problems, we need to check your memory using memory test. If you want more of my help in this regard, please contact me. Take care.

You want to be lonely because you are not interested in the usual things happening around you. You are feeling sad. Because of your family issues you are probably feeling angry, frustrated and stuck as well. And may be you are not able to express these feelings. All this is putting a lot of pressure on you. As you have not been expressing your anger in proper way and time, it is coming out any time, with slightest provocation. You need to talk to someone about your problem. Talk to your trusted friend or a trusted relative. Your friends or relatives will help you in taking a rational decision in this difficult situation. It is difficult for you to take rational decision when you are overwhelmed with emotions. If you do not have any trusted friend or relative, then please consult a counsellor, who will help you in exploring various options and will also help in taking rational decision and coping up.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Anger management: 10 tips to tame your temper Keeping your temper I n check can be challenging. Use simple anger management tips — from taking a timeout to— to stay in control. Start by considering these 10 anger management tips. 1. Think before you speak In the heat of the moment, it's easy to say something you'll later regret. Take a few moments to collect your thoughts before saying anything — and allow others involved in the situation to do the same. 2. Once you're calm, express your anger As soon as you're thinking clearly, express your frustration in an assertive but nonconfrontational way. State your concerns and needs clearly and directly, without hurting others or trying to control them. 3. Get some exercise Physical activity can help reduce stress that can cause you to become angry. If you feel your anger escalating, go for a brisk walk or run, or spend some time doing other enjoyable physical activities. 4. Take a timeout Timeouts aren't just for kids. Give yourself short breaks during times of the day that tend to be stressful. A few moments of quiet time might help you feel better prepared to handle what's ahead without getting irritated or angry. 5. Identify possible solutions Instead of focusing on what made you mad, work on resolving the issue at hand. Does your child's messy room drive you crazy? Close the door. Is your partner late for dinner every night? Schedule meals later in the evening — or agree to eat on your own a few times a week. Remind yourself that anger won't fix anything and might only make it worse. 6. Stick with'I' statements To avoid criticizing or placing blame — which might only increase tension — use" I" statements to describe the problem. Be respectful and specific. For example, say" I'm upset that you left the table without offering to help with the dishes, instead of" You never do any housework. 7. Don't hold a grudge Forgiveness is a powerful tool. If you allow anger and other negative feelings to crowd out positive feelings, you might find yourself swallowed up by your own bitterness or sense of injustice. But if you can forgive someone who angered you, you might both learn from the situation. It's unrealistic to expect everyone to behave exactly as you want at all times. 8. Use humour to release tension Lightening up can help diffuse tension. Use humor to help you face what's making you angry and, possibly, any unrealistic expectations you have for how things should go. Avoid sarcasm, though — it can hurt feelings and make things worse. 9. Practice relaxation skills When your temper flares, put relaxation skills to work. Practice deep-breathing exercises, imagine a relaxing scene, or repeat a calming word or phrase, such as" Take it easy. You might also listen to music, write in a journal or do a few yoga poses — whatever it takes to encourage relaxation. 10. Know when to seek help Learning to control anger is a challenge for everyone at times. Consider seeking help for anger issues if your anger seems out of control, causes you to do things you regret or hurts those around you.

Doctor I have lot of problems, I thing it is due to over thinking. 1. When a person if it my teacher or neighbor look sharply on me I get frightened. 2. I have a tendency to overthink about my future. 3. When I prepared some question to ask a dignitary person with proper rehearsal on my'mind', the question I asking will be meaningless or other type 4. When ever I tell something to express my strong argument to a person who have a more age than me or to protest, suddenly I scan my thought to tell, then I think about my future of my words and its after effect. So I supposed to be silent. #All these problems are are started when I entered to a new school which is an aided school. I think these are problems on me are raised due to my strong protest against this school *it is may due to (may be) I thought that I will be humiliated soon &I will get punishment with out doing any bad things.(most important thought) Generally I behave mildly in the class and I always try to stay away from my friends. I have lot of like these problems I wrote this letter to express my feeling to get a relief. Please help me.

Hello, To reduce Alzheimer's risk, focus on healthy fats. Get plenty of omega-3 fats. Evidence suggests that the DHA found in omega-3 fatty acids may help prevent Alzheimer's disease and dementia by reducing beta-amyloid plaques. Food sources include cold-water fish such as salmon, tuna, trout, mackerel, and sardines.Here are few foods you should add into your diet that can help improve your mind:- Green leafy vegetables, Cruciferous vegetables like Broccoli, cauliflower,Beans and legumes.Whole grains, Berries and cherries,Pumpkin, squash, asparagus, tomatoes, carrots and beets.Omega 3s. Almonds, cashews, walnuts, hazelnuts, peanuts and pecans,Sunflower seeds and pumpkin seeds.Cinnamon, sage, tumeric and cumin.

A friend (in her early 30's)is going through a post trauma of her divorce. She has lost her interest in life. How to council her, please suggest?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Divorce is very painful and difficult. If there was any abuse, it will be even more hurtful. But the earlier she deals with that pain, the earlier will she get out of it. Please make her talk about the marriage until she purges herself of all the negativity. Let her use her own language to describe it, and let her talk extensively. When you are able to spare time, take her out and let her relate to others and the world around her. Gradually she will come out of it. If she broods over the divorce, withdraws, or is unwilling to talk, she could get into more problems. When listening to her, reserve your judgment, and just be a good listener. Occasionally, empathize with her and show a lot of understanding. The worse regret in a divorce is when the person realizes that there was something more that could have been done, but was left without adequate pursuit. This thinking usually follows later when it is too late. If that is the case, she will need to be consoled and know that both of them were responsible but that it is too late. Life has to go on and she has to move on. If she is working, it will be a lot easier, if she attends to her job. Tell her not to meet too many people who knew the couple well, and definitely she should not indulge in bringing out dirty linen. Help her understand the lessons to be learned and the role she played in this downfall. That is extremely important for her recovery.

Take the help of some family members or common friends and resolve the issues. Everything is possible through dialogue. But certain caution needs to be exercised during this dialogue- do not begin with blaming. In a relationship both parties may fail to fulfill other's expectations. You may have some complaints, so will she - this is never ending. For a marriage to work you will both have to let go of the past and start afresh.

I am 39 years old and am suffering from a schizoaffective thought disorder. I keep thinking the same thought over and over again sometimes even talk to an imaginary person for hours on end. Am in the habit of procrastinating everything.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You are more than in the habit of procrastination. I hope you are under some form of treatment from a doctor. This is a very disturbing development and I do not know for how long you have been having these traits. The talking to an imaginary person is a way of disconnecting with reality and can make you quite dysfunctional. Apart from meeting with a doctor you must meet with a counselor also and continue with both treatments with full cooperation. Please do not neglect this condition any further and seek help fast.

Smoking habit, my body is weak. Not capable to walk so long. Chest pain. Afraid to cancer.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Since you are afraid of cancer, get rid of this habit at once. It is a known cause of cancer. The other symptoms are also related to excessive smoking. You have to quit cold turkey because the body and mind will torture you endlessly while attempting a reduction in smoking. The tobacco tar in cigarette smoke lines your lung with huge patches that make that portion dysfunctional. Your oxygen carrying capacity is jeopardized, and breathing is impinged on. But don’t be discouraged because it is not too late even now to reverse all the ill-effects of smoking. I don’t know what other organs could be damaged but do go for a thorough medical check-up to assess the effects of your abuse. Regarding improving your lungs, do a lot of aerobic exercise breathing through your nostrils only. Then there are a lot of deep breathing exercises in Yoga which you can learn too. Deep breathing cleanses your system and lungs and restores it to good health. Deep breathing uses the 80% of the lungs which are not normally used in normal breathing and even when exerting yourself. The greatest effect is in the lungs because this substance is processed through the respiratory system directly through the lung surface. When quitting, you must take one day at a time; though you must give up all smoking at once, and promptly. If you look too far ahead you will get discouraged and will give up. If you sit and count the number of days you have given up, that will also focus too much on achievement. You must focus on the here and now, on that day to be precise. After all quitting is not that easy due to many factors. So even if you fail one day, 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 the habit. The information is really scary but true and you must remind yourself about this every day. The nicotine in tobacco smoke stimulates the heartbeat 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 chew gum. If the urge is too strong, then use nicotine gums and 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 could also join twitter2quit program and enjoy its success to give up smoking.

The word depressed is a common everyday word. People might say" i'm depressed" when in fact they mean" i'm fed up because i've had a row, or failed an exam, or lost my job" etc. These ups and downs of life are common and normal. Most people recover quite quickly. With true depression, you have a low mood and other symptoms each day for at least two weeks, in your case it has been long time, so it is imperative that you consult a psychiatrist and get evaluated.

MD - Psychiatry, MBBS

Dear , it appears to be a personality problem. It is not an illness. Firstly you should tell her that you all love her so much and you want her to be more lovable. Very politely she should be made aware that she should change her behaviour as it becomes awkward at times. You may make a request to visit a psychiatrist or psychologist who may interview your wife and you in a unbiased manner, to find out expectations and fears you both are harbouring for each other, and finally suggest remedy for it. It is a long process called family therapy. The effects will be long lasting. A few medicines may be required for some time, but brain surgery is definitely out of question. Hypnotism is not meant for that.

You are 18 years old. A lot of girls are yet to enter your life and you may form meaningful relation. Whenever you get such thoughts distract yourself by doing something you enjoy or talk to someone you are comfortable sharing this. Try to tell yourself that her thoughts are temporary it will go one day but the precious time your wasting on not studying will haunt you forever. So, learn to prioritize thins. Make a to do list everyday and try to complete when you will have sense of achievement you will good and motivated and this will become a pattern. consult me for any stress
