I am 20 years old male. I am suffering from attention deficit since my childhood. Most of the time I live in dreams. Since my childhood I never listened lectures. I feel like boredom after listening for 10 minutes and I will go to dreams. You believe it or not my city is very small one, I am living in this since my childhood but I don't remember routes of this city. I don't know the exact locations of the places. I always search for them. I can't observe the things that are happening around me because I am always in dreams. I always forget the names of persons and places. I always try to think for 5-10 sec of finding a name while I am in a conversations. I always can't take decisions in my life. I will always over estimate or under estimate the situation.(for example if I want to study a subject I will over estimate that I can read the whole book of 500 pages in 10 hrs. Then I starts reading, after reading 5 pages I gets depressed and stops reading. This is happening since my childhood.) I am also very poor in my communication skills. I also have very few friends. I feel like I am wasting time while talking to strangers. I never fight or scold anybody in my life not because I am good but because I think that they will feel if I scold them. I am going to dreams while writing this question too. This is bothering me a lot. Please help me. Thanks in advance.

You must immediately go for counseling and meet with a doctor too for some medication. You will need to monitor yourself and get into maintaining a dairy of activities completed and those to be completed. It will be useful to either report to a family member or to a therapist to keep tabs on your progress. Right now there is no cure but a combination of counseling and medication will help. You have reached this age already rather successfully and with more definite direction, much more can be achieved. Exercise of the vigorous kind will be useful, and a regular schedule of activities every day will help you complete jobs. To stay out of daydreaming you must be constantly engaged with constructive activities and with people of common interests.

I am 58 years old, male, with Schizophrenia since 10 years. At the present moment, I am put on Amisant 200 mg 0-0-1 and Sizopin 100 mg 0-0-1. I intend to replace Amisant with Sizodon plus 0-0-1, because, I have positive symptoms of Schizophrenia, like hallucinations etc, where Amisant is found wanting. I will take this decision only after consulting my psychiatrist, whom I am meeting on Monday next. Kindly remember that I am not taking independent decisions and i am not self-medicating myself. In the mean time, kindly advice whether the combination of Sizodon plus and Sizopin relieve both positive and negative symptoms of Schizophrenia?

Yes it can..see all meds target both positive and negative symptoms..respinse in terms of positive symptoms is better for all of them.Among meds sizopin and amisant are better than others.If you really want to improve negative symptoms you need more than meds and then also some deficits will always remain..Your new combination is fine but remember the combination of amisant and sizopin is among the best for negative symptoms.In the end goal is to take as few meds as possible..

How to control smoking I have been trying to stop it for the past 4 years.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist,
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 in the habit. The information is really scary but true. 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.

I have been talking to myself a lot nowadays. I can somehow feel this change in my thinking. Since a last few years I've been recreating situations that almost match the real life background and living through them mentally. First I thought it was just my imagination but now it's getting me confused between the incidents that happened in real and in my imagination.I can feel both slowly mixing up because I am forgetting what had actually happened in reality and thinking my perception as what actually happened. I see myself in many worse situations sometime like me dying or hospitalized having some deadly disease and talk to myself creating proper dialogues to all the characters in my perception and soon start believing that perception really did happen.I have sudden head acha or blank mind. Nowadays I cannot concentrate properly. My brain is stuck to the task of figuring out throughout my life what exactly was a perception and what was reality.Please help. A few days back I started talking to my friend about the jokes we cracked in class during boring math lecture n how we had chatted on a sheet of paper like always n I clearly remember the jokes n how we had passed that sheet to another one of our friends n she could not help but laugh n when I started talking about it they said it never happened n the friend I was chatting was apparently absent to school that day.I remember keeping that chat sheet into my math book so on hearing that I checked it to prove them wrong n found absolutely nothing in my math book Last year when I was in 10th grade we had about a week holiday before our farewell party.One day I saw a perception of witnessing the farewell party all the even speeches announcement my batch mates talking everything.For three days I was living with the fact that farewell party was over until my friend came to my house saying if I had chose myself a dress for farewell. Once last year after my board annual exams of 10th grade we have about3 month long vacation.One day during the vacation I suddenly started studying thinking my exams weren't over n I was on my one month study vacation before exams. Its creeping me out.I dont even remember half the things that happened really.When i was talking to my friends a few days back about our manali tour i found out that more than half the things i thought happened there were just a part of my imagination. N then people claim im fake n lie to people where in reality i don't know which is the truth anyway. Please i need help!

How can I increase my thinking capacity. To capture the knowledge for longer period.

Ph. D - Psychology, Professional Certified Coach
Psychologist, Ahmedabad
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. Wishing you very best,

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.

Dear lybrate-user, Welcome to Lybrate. Tobacco is addictive. Cigarette also contains 4000+ carcinogenic chemicals other than nicotine. Nicotine and other chemicals can cause cancer of different types and areas. Throat cancer, mouth cancer, lung cancer, stomach cancer and brain problems can result. Over and above smoking may also increase the risk factor of heart attack and brain stroke. Please quit smoking. The best method is to leave it and continue with your will power. There are other methods like Nicotine Replacement therapy and pharmacotherapy combined. If you’re ready to stop smoking and willing to get the support you need, you can recover from nicotine addiction and abuse abuse—no matter how bad the addiction or how powerless you feel. The first step in treating nicotine addiction is accepting that you have a problem. Confronting an addiction and accepting responsibility for your actions isn’t easy. But it’s a necessary step on the road to treatment and recovery. You should then consult a psychiatrist / psychologist who fill follow this treatment. 1. Detoxification using medicines. 2. Behavior modification with the help of therapies. 3. Counseling. 4. Medication to sustain and 5. Long term support. These given steps are essential for any addict to get effectively rid of smoking. Therefore, you need to stick to the treatment plan and cooperate with your psychiatrist / psychologist. Mind power building therapy, motivation therapy etc should help you doing so. I suggest you to consult a psychologist or de addiction therapist. Take care.

Hi lybrate-user, I am glad that you recognize the fact that you are a hardworker and must have put in your best foot forward for upcoming exam. I guess what you are calling depression may be examination anxiety which is pretty common amongst people to experience before any exam. And if you do not take charge of yourself then it will be difficult for you to focus on exam. What you can do is to sit for five minutes with your eyes closed and do deep breathing, let the thoughts enter in your mind but you do not pay heed to them. Once you are relaxed then visualize yourself sitting in the exam hall, and attempting all questions confidently. I am sure you shall be able to crack this exam when yoy focus on your abilities and be confident that you will come out with flying colours. Eat light nutritious diet and sleep for at least 6/7 hour before the night of exam. During exam read all the questions carefully and do not panic if you think you don't know the answer of any question. First attend those questions you are confident about answering, then those you are less confident and lastly those whose answer you may know if you think carefully. Do not panic at any stage. Do not worry you are in control and keep reassuring yourself that you can do it. Good luck for the exam.

5 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.

Stress can be an independent factor causing heavy headed ness. Also smoking causes exacerbation of any type of headaches due to increase on heartbeats and blood pressure. So it is best to be avoided. Rather there are so many other reasons to stop smoking too. Consult a psychiatrist, check your blood pressure. You might need some medications to relieve stress momentarily. Later you may use relaxation exercises like yoga and mediation to relieve stress induced headaches.
