Take all precautions to avoid all things that you are allergic to. Frequent sickness can break your rhythm of studying. Start your day with making a list of things you want to study in the day. Give yourself specific targets- eg - I have to study ---- topic, from-----chapter and after that attempt----questions from that topic. Once you have finished this, then move on to the next thing on the list. Have lots of water and physical exercise to keep your energy level high. Give yourself positive affirmations that you can do it and there is no reason why you shouldn't be able to focus.

You seem to be suffering from Borderline Personality or Emotionally unstable personality. The cause is unknown but research suggests there is an interaction between adverse life events and genetic factors. Neurobiological research suggests that abnormalities in the frontolimbic networks are associated with many of the symptoms There is a pattern of sometimes rapid fluctuation from periods of confidence to despair, with fear of abandonment and rejection. There is a particularly strong tendency towards suicidal thinking and self-harm. They have love-hate relationship with close ones. Transient psychotic symptoms, including brief delusions and hallucinations, may also be present. It is also associated with substantial impairment of social, psychological and occupational functioning and quality of life. People with emotionally unstable personality disorder are particularly at risk of suicide. Its course is variable and, although many people recover over time. Kindly consult a psychiatrist for remedy.

How can I increase my study concentration. Please give me simple tricks. I am 22 yr.

MD - Alternate Medicine, BHMS
Homeopath, Surat
Just do this small exercise: Sleep with legs raised up from waist against the wall straight up, making 90 degree angle for 5 mins. Its better you do in early morning, else you can do it anytime. This will make your blood flow increased towards brain and increase your memory and physical strength too. Still if you have any queries, please ask. Take care. :)

I just broke up with my fiancee who also happens to be my business partner. We were living in. Still have to see him everyday after he coldly walked out on me (rather asked me to move out of my house as his parents were living with us). His issues with me were blown out of proportion by his parents resulting in a bad break up. I cant quit work as lot of families money is at stake cause of the start up. And I can't work with him cause it hurts too much to see him so cold and indifferent. What do I do?

Psychologist,
That is a tough situation to be in. Counselling can help you to sort out your feelings and thoughts and move towards a workable solution. Since you mention that you can't quit due to your financial stake in the company, you could look at how you can manage yourself and your feelings when you see him cold and indifferent. Sometimes a closer look at a broken relationship helps bring a closure and peace of mind. Please click on private chat for a personalised session.

You should stop consuming alcohol altogether. What you are suffering is withdrawal symptoms probably or some kind of reaction check with psychiatrist. Be on a good diet- include lot of fruits in your diet and green leafy vegetables. Meditate or do yoga daily.

Hello lybrate-user, there are many reason due to which you may be sexually inactive for sometime. It may be because of low energy level, or some illness, or may be some tensions etc. Give time for yourself, at least a week or so and work on any stress or anxiety that you are facing, diet, sleep, exercise, smoking habits to be revived. Inspite of all this if you are facing the same difficulty consult a expert or do contact us.

Is there any home made remedies by which we can get rid of. depression due to studies.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Is there any home made remedies by which we can get rid of. depression due to studies.
Ways to Fight Depression If you feel depressed, it's best to do something about it — depression doesn't just go away on its own. In addition to getting help from a doctor or therapist, here are 5 things you can do to feel better. 1.Exercise. Take a 15- to 30-minute brisk walk every day — or dance, jog, or bike if you prefer. People who are depressed may not feel much like being active. In addition to getting aerobic exercise, some yoga poses can help relieve feelings of depression. Two other aspects of yoga — breathing exercises and meditation — can also help people with depression feel better. 2.Nurture yourself with good nutrition. Depression can affect appetite. One person may not feel like eating at all, but another might overeat. Proper nutrition can influence a person's mood and energy. So eat plenty of fruits and vegetables and get regular meals (even if you don't feel hungry, try to eat something light, like a piece of fruit, to keep you going). 3.Identify troubles, but don't dwell on them. Try to identify any situations that have contributed to your depression. When you know what's got you feeling blue and why, talk about it with a caring friend. Talking is a way to release the feelings and to receive some understanding. 4. Express yourself. With depression, a person's creativity and sense of fun may seem blocked. Exercise your imagination (painting, drawing, doodling, sewing, writing, dancing, composing music, etc.) and you not only get those creative juices flowing, you also loosen up some positive emotions. Take time to play with a friend or a pet, or do something fun for yourself. Find something to laugh about — a funny movie, perhaps. Laughter helps lighten your mood. 5. Try to notice good things. Depression affects a person's thoughts, making everything seem dismal, negative, and hopeless. If depression has you noticing only the negative, make an effort to notice the good things in life. Try to notice one thing, then try to think of one more. Consider your strengths, gifts, or blessings. Most of all, don't forget to be patient with yourself. Depression takes time to heal. If you are happy with these answers please click on "useful” link so that I can know my efforts are not wasted. If you want more clarifications or prescription for medicines consult me on this site to ask me directly and not in open questions session It's not easy to say exactly what causes depression and anxiety – it's different for everyone. Sometimes a difficult time in you or your mates' life can set off depression or anxiety, sometimes it's caused by a combination of things that has built up over time and sometimes, there's just no obvious cause at all.

Dear Lybrate user. This is a wrong concept. Cholesterol has nothing to do with stress or anxiety. Weight loss could happen due to stress and anxiety and as a general effect, whole cholesterol count could decrease. Take care.

I am 30 years old male and consume tobacco for many years. I am now worried for my teeth. What shall I do ?

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, avoiding friends who smoke and diverting mind by reading or chewing a gum 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.

Has medical science conclusively found the cause of clinical depression or paranoia? genetics? stress? why does the brain physiology of people suffering from mental illness differ from those of' normal' people? can it be said with surety that all mental illnesses are self inflicted?

MD Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Chennai
No medical science have not found a single cause. The reason why a person develops depression and other psychiatric illness is multifactorial. Many factors like genes, brain chemical changes, personality and stressful situations all contribute to the psychiatric illness. None of the the mental illness is self inflicted.

It must be frustrating and demotivating for you to repeatedly" not clear" the exam. Please notice that I said" not clear" instead of failing, because you seem to be associating this failure with your personal failure, which is actually not true. You are much more and beyond the passing and failing in an exam. Humans have unlimited potential out of which we use only 5-7%. Rest is untapped. Clearing your exam is not the only way to achieve your success and happiness. Try to create more situations where you get to learn more and utilise your learning. It is common knowledge that, public exams like banking and ias have few seats available but applicants are in lakhs. Usually such students, create a plan b and plan c, where in they have already thought of another job or course to take up so that their learning and earning doesn't stop. Your knowledge and learning will not go waste. Find out where else it can be applied eg. Ias students learn more about current affairs, general knowledge and govt policies for establishments and organisations. Even if they don't get a govt job, they can apply in private sector or start their own business. Set up a time frame within which you try a set number of times. If you don't get through. Leave it and move on. Life doesn't stop for anyone. People who are flexible and adaptable are successful, people who don't adapt get left out. I'm sure that you would have heard of" survival of the fittest" theory by charles darwin. You must understand what are your strengths and in which fields you would do your best. Think of those moments when you were doing your best and felt the happiest and lively. Many researchers have proved that if you find out what is your" calling" then you will do your best, feel content and satisfied and experience good physical, mental and emotional wellbeing. I suggest that you take out time to understand what you excel at. Maybe not getting through this exam is a boon in disguise.

This happens with many persons in your age. First you maintain a healthy lifestyle i. E. Do regular exercise, good sleep, healthy food. Then you learn some relaxation techniques. Plan your goal in your life and try to maintain yourself busy to avoid these thoughts.

What are the effects of parkinson my hands shake while holding anything someone said it can be parkinson so I wanna know more about it.

BHMS
Homeopath, Raebareli
Thank you for writing to us. Please note the following for your condition: symptoms of parkinson's disease differ from person to person. They also change as the disease progresses. Symptoms that one person gets in the early stages of the disease, another person may not get until later-or not at all. The most common one is tremor: tremor, or shaking, often in a hand, arm, or leg, occurs when you're awake and sitting or standing still (resting tremor), and it gets better when you move that body part. Tremor is often the first symptom that people with parkinson's disease or their family members notice. Besides tremor, the most common symptoms include: stiff muscles (rigidity) and aching muscles. One of the most common early signs of parkinson's is a reduced arm swing on one side when you walk.
