Medication helps you in managing your anxiety. If you are feeling any symptoms after medicine, you should contact your psychiatrist. He can revise your doses. I can't say what is the level of your anxiety so I won't suggest you any alternative to it. But yes you can start meeting a clinical psychologist for therapy. It is seen that with therapy, dose of medication can come down. Go to somebody who can start cbt with you. All the best. Feel free to contact me.

I am unable to control my impatience, anger and anxiety, as a result I make the life of people around me difficult. I do not think my expectations are unrealistic. It's just that I do not tolerate chalta-hai attitude. People feel that I go into minute details. But then quality comes with details. Maybe I'm failing to carry people with me.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You probably are a high achiever, and do not like and perhaps cannot even tolerate people who are lackadaisical. While that is a good thing for you, people are all born and bred differently. A good leader is the one who can tap into each one?s capability and get the best out of them, not the best you want, necessarily. So it depends on the kind of people you have, and the ideal technique would be to bring the best of each individual, within their capacity. Impatience, anger and anxiety have never brought about harmony in work situations to produce the best. You must love your people and with love much more can be achieved. When you over-detail, you lose the larger picture. That is where you may be getting caught up with the minor steps, at the cost of the end result. There has to be a discrete blend between the process and the result. You cannot be stuck in one end or the other. You last statement is quite revealing and a very honest assessment: you have got to carry people with you. I think it is in Howard University that you are greeted with a huge banner that reads something like this: ?The bottom line of any organization is its people? In people, it is through good relationships. If you build good relations while getting work done, everyone will go home satiated and the work will get done excellently: details and large picture too. You seem to be the common factor, where the problem probably lies. If you don't believe me, then have an open discussion with the workforce and find answers. You may even discuss my response, to stimulate some openness.

I want to increase my memory and concentration. What I have to do ? I really wanna increase my memory. Help 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.

How to increase confidence in Communication with people and what topic to use there?
Dear lybrate-user. The more you talk in social situation, the more you are confident. The more knowledgeable you are, the more you are confident. You can't expect people to talk subjects you know. You will be able to interfere and present your ideas in their subject only when you have knowledge about various subjects. Vast reading can help you. Take care.

Prioritizing is the most important step towards achieving goals

Prioritizing is the most important step towards achieving goals
"You pile up enough for tomorrow. You' will find you are left with nothing, but a lot of empty yesterdays" - Prof Harold Hill

Life is busy. It seems it is impossible to move towards your dreams. If you have a full time job and kids, it's even more harder.

So if you don't purposefully carve time out every day to progress in diet and exercise and improve- no doubt without fail, your muscle mass will get lost in the bargain of muscle mass reducing with age

Before you know, you will be old and withered - wondering where all that time went.

So start acting now.

I am 36 years old male & become a regular addicted from cough codin syrup since last 5 years as per day by day basis & right now I want to give-up this harmful habit as soon as possible, please. Assist me HOW IT CAN BE POSSIBLE?

Codeine addiction is worsened by increasing tolerance levels for the drug. If you are having a serious addiction and you cannot quit its use, you will have to admit yourself to a rehabilitation center and go through their program for a complete recovery. This type of treatment is ideal because it takes you away from the influences of people and circumstances that you have gotten conditioned to and will make it easier in a different geographical location. When you come out of the center you must continue with addiction counseling for three years at least before being free of the enslavement. You will also need to attend NA meetings regularly and get a lot of support from other users who are also recovering. You will need to make some lifestyle changes and work on the stress that is normally the reason most youngsters get addicted to codeine. There is also the oral issue, the rigid value system, the genetic factors, and the script issue that has to be worked upon with the counselor. You will need to start regular vigorous exercise, sleep well, and start on a healthy diet. You must follow a tight time schedule with interesting and productive activities. The counselor will also teach you new ways of finding joy without the use of chemicals. You should socialize with people, join new groups, attend conferences, meetings, seminars etc. to be involved with other important activities in your neighborhood. You will need to go for a thorough medical checkup and determine that there was no serious damage to your body because of the abuse.

Dear user. Glossophobia or speech anxiety is the fear of public speaking or of speaking in general. Various treatment options are available to treat glossophobia. Certain drugs such as beta blockers may be used to help people relax before speaking in public. Complementary therapies such as hypnosis, meditation or psychotherapy can be quite beneficial in helping you to overcome glossophobia. I suggest online counseling and hypnotherapy. Take care.

Do not fear better to taik, all women are not rejected. Now generation is changed now women also needs friendliness. Better to make good friend. Do not talk like collge boy or lover, women likes good friendly nature men. Do not prefer sex thoughts in middle of the conversation. Do not feel when talk to them. Start with small words later go good conversation. Good luck.

Dear, as you are already aware smoking is dangerous. Apart from the nicotine related addiction and health hazards, you inhale more than 4000 carcinogenic chemicals when you smoke. There is also a high risk of developing these problems to other people near you through passive smoking. Awareness is the basic for quitting smoking. Awareness provides will power. Know more about tobacco smoking health effects. For craving or withdrawal symptoms you can use nicotine chewing gums or nicotine patches. There are other way by gradual reducing and keeping some promises. Promise yourself, that you will not smoke in office, at home, in front of family members and dear friends etc. Never buy cigerettes in packets. Whenever you feel like smoking, go to the shop and buy one. Keep these promises strictly and you will see the quantity reduces drastically. Then you can stop it gradually. Take care.

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.

Yes, this last factor may not be the complete reason. There is reason to believe that something from the past is infringing on the present to cause such a reaction. Your bp is certainly not normal and this is a sign of the stress you are in. There is a lot of anger for sure and it seems to be covered up with some fear too. The symptoms are not looking good either and you must meet with a counselor first, and then if that person decides, you may have to meet with a doctor too. The timing is somewhat consonant with a person who is into what is called delayed adolescence. The sudden development of these symptoms is therefore not surprising. You must find out if there is any family history of psychological problems from the time of your grandparents, on both sides. Apart from that there may be some developmental issues that have not been resolved. So when meeting with the counselor, it is better to take your parents with you to throw some light as to the genesis of these problems. Do not neglect this for much longer because early interventions favor good prognosis. Also remember that you can get out of this mess only with full cooperation. In the meantime please do regular exercise, sleep well and eat healthily. Even if you do not like it, you must socialize to prevent your mind from internalizing these emotions and issues, until proper diagnosis and treatment is started. Finding a job will go a long way to relieve some symptoms but not to solve the problems.

I hope you are taking these tablets after consulting a psychiatrist. If not please consult a psychiatrist and follow his advice. Some medicines may have some side effects, and the headache and the feeling of current passing through your nerves might be the side effects of the tablets. Please discuss this with your doctor who might change your medication. But please do not start or stop medicines on your own, it will be harmful for you. There are a number of causes for depression and the severity of depressive mood also differs from person to person. I think, along with the medication, counselling and psychotherapy would be of great help to you. The counsellor can help you to understand your own behavior patterns and thought processes and help you to modify the same. There might be some heredity of depression, you might be having some suppressed emotions or unresolved issues of the past, which might be affecting your mind now. The counsellor can help you to identify and manage such emotions and will help you to move on with life and enjoy life. Take care.
