My wife is suffering from paranoid schizophrenia. Sometimes she is very rigid and violent. Sizdon plus medicine she is taking. But she is reluctant to take a medicine. What should be done. Also she doesn't believe on any body including me also.

Lybrate user, Welcome to this forum! I see that your wife is refusing to take treatment and she is symptomatic i.e paranoid about others. There are other ways to deal with this problem - 1) get her admitted in a hospital with psychiatry ward. 2) can start with depot injections or tablets that medicines that can be given on months/weekly basis. 3) follow up with psychiatrist for any other suggestions. All the best! Regular treatment is of utmost importance in a violent patient. Healthy mind is as important as healthy body. For more queries you can consult me online.

You do not need medication, you just need to learn to calm down when facing the problems of your life. Natural concentration is when the mind can hold a thought for a long time, when thoughts are under our own control. Without concentration the mind goes here, there and everywhere, jumping like a monkey from branch to branch, idea to idea. When there is a natural concentration, we can control our mind and there is peace. This one-pointed concentration on a thought, holding it for as long as we like, gradually collects strength in the mind and in the self. A strong mind is a mind that is peaceful, stable, satisfied and can remain in the deeper meaning of a thought. There is no waste caused by over-thinking, or the high speed of thought: These are the two greatest diseases of the mind these days, which is why there is so much stress and mental breakdown. Stress can foil concentration and learning ability. Although concentration is different to memory, they can affect each other. Concentration precedes memory. If you are under stress your concentration will go for a toss, then naturally memory will be totally foiled. So meet with a counselor to take care of the stress and your memory will happily return. You can follow these simple rules in the meantime: Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber, nuts, avocado, exercise regularly, eat dark chocolate, 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. 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 is a new exercise called Super Brain Yoga, which is done by holding the right earlobe with your left thumb and index finger, and the left earlobe with your right hand’s thumb and index finger. In this position you must squat down and rise up and do this for five minutes every day. If your home life is full of distractions and stress, it is likely to affect your memory, adversely. In that case, I suggest that the family goes for counseling. 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. Avoid all junk food.

Better to consult psychiatrist for medication along with medication. It is better to consult psychologist for psychological counselling. Medicine will not work alone medicine work internally. But externally you have a need to change your thought process. If you come normal stage. Then continue with psychologist. You need to change your life style modification. Psychologist conduct cognitive behaviour modification therapy and some relaxation therapies do not sit alone. Do not think too much about the one aspect continuously. Better to share your internal feelings and problems with your close friends and family members. Be sociable all the time and be happy. No problem you will come soon from this problem. But be strictly follow the psychologist suggestions to change your complete thought process. Ok all the best.

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.

Short term memory is a feature of the left brain and the long term resides in the right brain. Nearly all of us, especially when we are under stress, go to the right brain and get stuck there.Natural concentration is when the mind can hold a thought for a long time, when thoughts are under our own control. Without concentration the mind goes here, there and everywhere, jumping like a monkey from branch to branch, idea to idea. When there is a natural concentration, we can control our mind and there is peace.

I feel very depressed after a failure in my academics. So please suggest me some solution.
Feeling depressed for failure in academics at your age seems very less likely. It could be that you are not satisfied with your life achievements and that is making you feel low, sad and depressed, if i am not wrong. Depression can occur to anyone at any moment in life. It is treatable. You might need a short medicine prescription to get over your feelings of depression with counseling. Contact me personally if possible

This can be kind of phobia, a type of anxiety disorder. You need to consult a psychiatrist personally, online if you prefer, with complete details of your problem so that an appropriate treatment and counseling can be started.

Student, 24. Was a past smoker for 4 years with 5-6 cigarettes avg. Per day. Also was a drinker, twice or thrice a week. Left smoking since Feb 2016 and reduced my drinking to once a month since then. My weight is 83 (height 6 ft), reduced it greatly from 97 since my doc advised me to do so because of a slight high total cholesterol of 212 and a little high TSH, which are both now normal to 177 total chol. And TSH normal. But I feel that it has made me a lot anxious. Before exams I feel a lot anxious with palpitation, heart thumping, cold sweat etc. Also normally if I drink a beer or two, the next morning I wake up with a great anxiety and a feeling of heartattack. I am always scared of having a heart attack. Had an ECG recently, it ws totally normal, although my BP becomes high at 130/90 when I am anxious, comes to normal 112/70. Also sometimes it pains near my armpits when I am anxious. I am too scared, always have a feeling that I am gonna have a heart attack or so. Help me, it is hell.

Dear Lybrate user. I can understand. Anxiety disorders are a category of mental disorders characterized by feelings of anxiety and fear, where anxiety is a worry about future events and fear is a reaction to current events. These feelings may cause physical symptoms, such as a racing heart and shakiness. There are a number of anxiety disorders: including generalized anxiety disorder, a specific phobia, social anxiety disorder, separation anxiety disorder, agoraphobia, and panic disorder among others. While each has its own characteristics and symptoms, they all include symptoms of anxiety. I assume your problem is health anxiety. I need to know more about your anxiety so that I will be able to diagnose it properly and provide you tips to overcome and manage your anxiety. Take care.

Loss of interest, decreased concentration and attention, feeling low and disturbed sleep or appetite are some of the signs of depression. Consult a psychiatrist who will assess you in detail. If you are feeling suicidal or hopeless, seek professional help immediately.
