Dear user. I can understand. Depressive disorder or depression is a neuro chemical disorder. Suicidal tendency is one main symptom of depression. You must be able to distinguish between mental disease and mental disorder. Your problem is a mental disorder. Not a mental disease. These mental disorders are usually treated with a combination of medicines and other means like awareness, meditation, Psychotherapy techniques, life style changes etc. Take care.

Sir I am a student of class 12 so I am unable to remember things for long time. Which will create problem in my study? So plzz help me out from this problem.

Ph. D - Psychology, Professional Certified Coach
Psychologist, Ahmedabad
Dear student for concentration and memory try following things on a daily basis and you will see positive results. Concentration is a mental skill that you can develop. There are two ways to improve your concentration: first, raise your brain's natural ability to concentrate. In other words, increase your attention. Second, adjust the environment around you to make concentrating easier. To improve your concentration takes a little time and effort, but it can be worth it. In my personal experience with students. This can make noticeable improvement in a relatively short time. Ideas for daily concentration-boosting habits include: mindfulness meditation - many studies confirm that 20 minutes of meditation or more per day improves concentration and attention span. Focusing on your breathing, known as mindfulness meditation, is one of the simplest way of meditation. Start with ten minutes in the morning and ten minutes before bed. Proper sleep -i am sorry to say it. Pulling all nighter will not help with your grade. Unless you are getting sufficient restful sleep, you are not going to be as mentally focused as you could be. Brain game -. The more you use certain skills, the more they are reinforced in the brain. So it makes sense that playing concentration games and games that require you to focus will improve your concentration ability. You need to be consistent in this. Play for about 10 to 20 minutes each day. Have fun, and get the benefits but remember not to spend more than 20 minutes a day. Your goal is to improve your concentration and not the score in the game! eat healthier - your brain needs the proper nutrients to allow you to focus. Eat more vegetables and fruits and avoid consumption of junk food as much as possible. Lot of research has now proven that sugar is very harmful for our health. Reduce sugar and refined white floor in your diet as much as you could. Exercise is helpful in both reducing stress and increasing focus. At-least 20 minutes a day would go a long way. Optimize your mental state & environment in addition to building the habits described above into your daily routine, also adjust your environment and your current mental state to improve your concentration when studying. Create a study spot. Your brain loves routine. Create a place where all you do is study. An obvious choice is a secluded desk of some kind, but the trick is to make sure you only study in that spot. Studying in bed is a bad habit, for example, because your body is trained to want to sleep once you get into bed. Remove distractions. Turn off the ringer on your phone and take other steps to prevent interruptions. Don't study with the television on or with talk radio playing. Some studies have shown that soft instrumental music (no vocals) can help improve your concentration. Block background noises. If you have to study or work in an environment where it is too loud (classroom or open space) or too quiet (such as at home or at a library) you can get easily distracted by outside influences. With the right amount of background noise you can actually block out distractions and enhance your creative thinking. Use time boxes. Set a time limit when you need to study new material. For example, let's say you want to read one chapter in a book (and remember it). Decide in advance that you can have 45 minutes to read the chapter, and 15 minutes to review it. Set a timer to keep yourself honest, then pace yourself to keep within the allotted time. Stay motivated with rewards. If you see studying as burden, it's hard to concentrate. One way to stay motivated is to set up a reward system. Tell yourself you have to earn that hour of watching your favorite show later in the evening by first completing one hour of intense studying. That way, even if the material is dry, you have the reward to look forward to. Take a break every two hours. You mental energy will begin to decline after a long period of study. So every two hours or so, take a ten minute break. Walk around, eat a light snack, or just stare at the wall to relax your mind. Concentrating is the first step to learning anything new. It only makes sense that if you improve your concentration, your memory will improve also. If you want to learn how to study effectively and need help making a balanced study habit you could contact me for 60 to 90 minute audio consultation and I will be able to make one for you hope this helps wishing you very best.

Break up can be a traumatic experience, it can effect one's life in multiple ways. The depression which it causes won't go on its own and should be treated.

Hi, I am 19 year old I want to quit smoking but I cant. What is the cure for that?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You can but it feels like you can't. The habit can be very difficult to halt because of the many conditions attached to smoking. 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 in the habit. The information is really scary. The nicotine in tobacco smoke stimulates the heart beat 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 chewing gum. If the urge is too strong, then use nicotine chewing gum or 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. All the damage you incurred earlier because of the smoking can be reverted back to normal in quick time.

Do a deep breathing exercise. Deep breathing can help you relax and reduce any stress in your body, including your head. Take slow, even breaths and try to relax. Close your eyes and take several deep breaths. Exhale slowly, relaxing any areas in your body that feel tight. Picture a beautiful scene, like a sandy beach, a bright sunny garden, or a country road. Drop your chin toward your chest. Slowly rotate your head in a half circle from side to side. Take another deep breath and exhale slowly. Continue picturing the beautiful scene in your head. Repeat this exercise until you are in a state of relaxation.

Rtms is not a established mode of treatment. For some resistant cases it is tried but the results in studies so far r not very strongly favorable. It is a costly treatment. The money you r thinking of investing in this can be more suitably utilized in consulting a good psychotherapist who can give way better results den rtms.

The end of a relationship often feels like the end of the world. After all the time and energy you have invested in it, it is very painful when it gets over. Keep in mind that life is full of ups and downs; nothing is permanent. The pain you feel today will go away with time. Give yourself time to heal. Give time, time. In the meanwhile don't isolate yourself from your friends and family. Confide in someone you are comfortable with. Make a list of life goals, and plan how to achieve them. Relationships are an important part of your life, but they are not everything. Spend time with those close to you, indulge in some enjoyable activities. Keep yourself busy. Slowly you will see that there is a lot to life. However if you are feeling suicidal, consult a psychiatrist immediately. Don't wait to feel worse.

I an suffering from memory loss whenever and where ever I read books I cannot able to memorize so what should I do?

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
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 convince a friend who is going through a bipolar disorder but does not want to see a counsellor or doctor but at the same time thinking of just taking anti depressant medication?

How to convince a friend who is going through a bipolar disorder but does not want to see a counsellor or doctor but ...
Hello Lybrate User. Helping someone with bipolar can be challenging because understanding the symptoms of bipolar and helping someone else notice the changes in themselves is a delicate endeavor: Come from a place of love. If you are sure that you want to undertake this task consider the best method to receive the best results. The approach you take to the situation will influence everything that follows. Blurting out “You’re bipolar!” at Thanksgiving is not going to be well received and will only lessen your credibility in the future. Maintaining a strong relationship will enable your message to be accepted. Watch for symptoms. If you have been noticing troubling signs and symptoms, write them down. Gathering a base of information will assist you in presenting a compelling case later. Look for changes in mood, energy levels, sleep, decision-making, risk taking and track what you see. Know the criteria. Often, people have misconceptions about what bipolar disorder is and how it operates. Someone being happy one minute and sad the next does not mean they have bipolar disorder. Generally, bipolar disorder means that someone has met the criteria for a manic episode as well as a depressive episode. A manic episode is a week-long period where someone has symptoms including decreased need for sleep, increased energy, inflated self-esteem and increase in risky behavior. A depressive episode is a two week period of low mood, low energy, sleep/ appetite changes and other symptoms. Someone with bipolar tends to switch between depressive and manic episodes with periods of calm in between. Encourage treatment. Do you hold an advanced degree in counseling or psychiatry? If the answer is no, leave the therapy to the professionals. The best advice you can give your loved one is to seek out treatment. People with bipolar disorder typically benefit from a combination of medication and therapy. Tell them your concerns and how you think treatment would benefit them. Let them know you care and would be willing to attend appointments to increase their comfort. If they disagree, give them space. Therapy only works on the willing. Thank you.

Hello. I am recommending you medicines, but you need to take this medicine regularly for 15days and make sure that you will be giving me feedback of the treatment positively after that. Homoeopathic medicines (Schwabe's) - Ignatia 30/ daily in the morning. Kali Phos. 6X/ one dose at night daily. And don't bother about others, people need some spicy topics to gossip all the time. It's your life, live it your way and let other people live their own life. They are just around you to discourage you and your confidence level! They are happy to see others sad. They wouldn't be there in need of time, so be with those people who boost up your confidecne, makes you happy and gives you positive vibes!!

Slowly getting un addicted to it is a myth. If a patient is motivate and takes treatment then with the help of medicines it is easy to stop it, but you will need counseling that he will not go back to it again.

I am going through xtreme depression. The reason might be silly but no boyfriend included. Its about my family. I am a 22 year old girl and I still don't have the right to take my own decisions or going somewhere with my frnds. If I say of letting me do my things then they speak of getting me married. Is there any way out of it?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Thankfully this is not a pathological depression, and is episodal, based entirely on the recent fact that your family is not permissive and may I take the liberty of saying, that they are very conservative. They are probably very worried about your future and marriage, in particular. With this concern they may be too restrictive and controlling. Are you in a community that is closed minded that if you are seen with your friends they will likely think of you as a bad charactered girl! if that is the case, there may be a genuine concern about false rumors spreading about you and thus compromising your reputation. The other concern is whether you have given them any reason for concern about your choice of friends, or any lack of control when you are out, or a poor decision maker, or do they have doubts about your character, or do they not trust this world too much? if there is any truth in any of these, I can understand that they are worried for you. Any which way, here is the way out: you will need to talk to them. If they are not the listening type, then get an uncle or aunt who is respected, involved in this discussion. If that is not allowed, then get a counselor involved. You must try to work it out with whatever resources you have at your beck and call. There is no need to give up. You can also negotiate with them about meeting certain conditions they may stipulate: after all they are concerned for your safety. They may be willing if you took certain cousins or friends, whose families they know. They may agree with certain curfew hours fixed. Now if you prove that you are reliable, they will consent. The other thing is to prove that you are a reliable and disciplined person when you are on your own, this will make them able to trust you. During your discussion make sure that it does not end up in an argument or fight. The key word is to negotiate: there must be some give and take. Their intentions are good but their methods may be questionable. At least you know that they are good parents. But as with any problem communication/discussion is very essential.

Dear user. I can understand. Stress is simply a reaction to a stimulus that disturbs our physical or mental equilibrium. In other words, it's an omnipresent part of life. A stressful event can trigger the “fight-or-flight” response, causing hormones such as adrenaline and cortisol to surge through the body. A little bit of stress, known as “acute stress,” can be exciting—it keeps us active and alert. But long-term, or “chronic stress,” can have detrimental effects on health. There is nothing to worry much about stress because stress is part of your body's defense mechanism. Stress is essential too. You may not be able to control the stressors in your world, but you can alter your reaction to them. I need to know, what are the causes with which you are stressed? Once you know the reason, you will be able to adjust with it with some tips and tricks. Please let me know the details. Take care.

This seems like an anxiety disorder; possibly what is known as Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD). Confirmation of the diagnosis will need a proper and detailed evaluation. There are no quickfixes. A number of medicines and psychotherapeutic techniques are useful. Deep breathing and relaxation techniques can be helpful. talk to friends, give more time for hobbies and pleasurable activities. Eat green leafy vegetables and drink lot of water. Have 7-8 hours of sleep. Definitive management is possible only by medicines/ psychotherapy. Take care!
