I have a bf it has been 2 years of our relationship. I am a very open person I love to talk and little kiddish I love to pull his legs.In front of friends I teased him like You can't do anything in your life. Etc and many more things I said. You know as example - we went out with two mutual friends of us we were having food and I just whispered to him that why he is paying the total amount of food. TAnd he feel like I humiliated him, and drone his prestige. He says I I am only here to drone his prestige. Is it so? He told me he is wasting time to stay with me. I had faced lots of problems in my life which I have never expressed I feel guilty for all this. I feel very much alone. Crying while typing all this but I feel better after sharing can you please help me? Should I walk away from him so that he can live happily? What should I do?

Most importantly you need to understand that man has too much ego when you keep on insulting someone on regular basis they are going loose patience some time. May that was not your intention but you have done the harm. Think about it infct speak to him that is he really serious about what he told. And you make sure you will not make fun of anyone who is close to you in future also. For further assistance please book appointment online here.

Hello Lybrate user, chid chid Krna, kisiki na Sunna, bina sochke decision lena, ye sabhi aapke behavior ki instability ko show krta hai. Aap nishchit hi kisi particular vishay ko lekr bahot jyada disturb hai, jo aapke behavior se show ho raha hai. Pareshaan hone ki koi baat nhi hai. Every problem comes with its solution. We always need to think about the solution. You need to spend some quality time with yourself. Kuch samay shant hoke bathiye and think about your problem. Ek samay main ek hi problem ko lekr sochiye. Then you will get some solutions. Jindagi bahot hi khubsurat hai, enjoy the journey of the life. My good wishes are always with you. All the best.

I cannot focus in class I can rarely give my 100% attention to anything be it studying or gaming. I always keep losing focus. While in a group I start day dreaming even though others are talking. I am hyperactive there always needs to be something or the other in my hand to play with and when I cant find anything I play with people's earlobes. I have frequent headaches where my head feels very lazy it feels like I just want to keep my eyes closed. And when this happens I cannot figure out whats happening in my surroundings. This happens not only while studying, gaming but also while i'm driving because of which I have to apply sudden brakes. Please help me all of this is affecting my studies.

Dear, memory and mind power consists of understanding, storage and recollection of information you learn. Understanding depends on concentration. The more creative you are on doing tasks or reading, the more you understand. Storage and recollection depends on your understanding and how well you review what you have learned. Repetition and review of material learned and other tasks provides easy recollection. You can improve your concentration and total brain power with the help of green leafy vegetables, exercise, creative activities, number puzzles like sudoku etc. Hard work is the key to learning and recollection. Post a private question to me and I shall provide you more tips. Take care.

Hi I am in deep depression. My husband doesn't care me. He won't even speak to me when he is in home. He always go trips with friends for his enjoyment. Weekdays office. Weekends outings. He does not spend time with me and my kids. If he is in home he will be busy with phone. I told him so many times that speak with me at least 5 mins but he doesn't care that. He treats me as servant and he use me for sex other than that nothing is there in between us. Now a days I am not interested in sex as he is not showing love towards me for that we are fighting. It is like a torture for me. I told him many times try to be lovingly so that even I can agree for that but he forcing me. I really scared of that. We both are sleeping in separate rooms from so many days. If he want sex he will come to me otherwise he will not. I am saying no for that he is telling I am having affairs that's why I am not agreeing. I told him just think how you are behaving with me but all is waste. I suggested him to behave lovingly with me otherwise consult psychologist so that you can know what wrong you are doing to me. But he answered me I don't have any rights to speak to him as did not agreed for sex. I don't know what to do. I really doesn't have interest in sex now. Please suggest me what to do.

YOu have to show more love, affection and care for him ad it not wise to retaliate the way you do. If both of you can see a counselor it is fine and if he refuses to come tell him that you have some problem and o accompany you after preparing the counsellor for this incognito consultation for him. You can seek the help of elders also. If you are patient, I Feel he can be corrected and if he goes to other women make sure they are not infected with STD.

I m suffering from extreme stress need to consult a psychologists suggest me a good one.
Dear lybrate-user, stress disorder can cause serious health problems if it is left untreated. Treatment is always given to the person rather than the stress itself. No one can avoid the stress around them and therefore they will be taught how to live with the stress itself. Understanding the stress and passionately dealing with the stressor is the best process. Life style coaches and psychologists will train you. There are many psychologists you can contact even online. Do consult a psychologist. Take care.

All About Panic Disorder

MD - Psychiatry, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Delhi
All About Panic Disorder

Panic disorder is a serious condition that can strike without any reason or warning and the symptoms last for about 10 minutes, such as; a fear for imminent death or losing control, chills, numbness of toes or fingers, stomach ache problem or nausea, trembling, dizziness, chest pain, shortness of breath and difficulty in breathing.

Over time, a person with panic disorder develops a constant fear of having another panic attack, which can affect daily functioning and general quality of life.

Is it a heart attack or a panic attack?

Most of the symptoms of a panic attack are physical, and many times these symptoms are so severe that people think they are having a heart attack. In fact, many people suffering from panic attacks make repeated trips to the doctor or the emergency room in an attempt to get treatment for what they believe is a life-threatening medical problem. While it’s important to rule out possible medical causes of symptoms such as chest pain, heart palpitations, or difficulty breathing, it’s often panic that is overlooked as a potential cause—not the other way around.

What are the causes behind Panic Disorder?

Although the exact causes of panic attacks and panic disorder are unclear, the tendency to have panic attacks runs in families. There also appears to be a connection with major life transitions such as graduating from college and entering the workplace, getting married, and having a baby. Severe stress, such as the death of a loved one, divorce, or job loss can also trigger a panic attack.

Panic attacks can also be caused by medical conditions and other physical causes. Panic Disorder usually begins during late adolescence and early adulthood and is twice as common with women as compared to men.

How can Panic Disorder be treated?

  1. Psychotherapy- It is a type of counseling wherein trained professionals assist people by discussing strategies for comprehending and stabilizing this disorder.

  2. Cognitive Behavioral Theory- Cognitive behavioral theory aims at identifying possible triggers of panic attacks and helps one recognize and change their thought patterns and behaviors that stimulate such behavior.

  3. Medication- Anti-depressant medicines are used to cure panic disorders, such as Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors (SSRI), medications for reducing anxiety and certain cardiovascular medications such as beta-blockers to cope with situational anxiety.

Self-help Tips-

When it comes to panic attacks, professional treatment and therapy can make a big difference. But there are many things you can do to help yourself, too:

  1. Learn about panic, read up on anxiety, panic disorder, and the fight-or-flight response experienced during a panic attack.  

  2. Avoid smoking and caffeine.

  3. Learn how to control your breathing.

  4. Practice relaxation techniques regularly like Yoga and meditation.

I am an 18 years old boy and I have started smoking cannabis. I've read online that it is good for health in controlled quantities so is it right to go on this path. Does cannabis also cause cancer like tobacco products? Also it fine to smoke 3-4 joints a day. Will it affect me on a chronic basis?

Hi lybrate-user, cannabis smoking is injurious to health and you should try to abstain from it. It will slowly induce dependence and hamper your life. It will definitely have very harmful effects if you consume it on a chronic basis. So, its my advice and request to you to not spoil your entire life and even suggest your friends to stay away from this slow poison.

It is a statistically proven fact that smokers and other tobacco users are more likely to develop disease, suffer miserably later in life and die earlier than are people who dont use tobacco. I have experience in successfully making people quit smoking through a customized smoking cessation program which includes counseling medications and support do reply back for medication prescriptions. Being also a general physician and registered dietitian, I prescribe both evidence based herbal as well as allopathic medicines complementing with dietary guidelines and home remedies carefully personalized for each individual patient.

Your Addiction To Smart Phone Reveals Something Shocking About You!

Ph. D - Psychology
Psychologist,
Your Addiction To Smart Phone Reveals Something Shocking About You!
Smartphone Addiction is a Sign of Depression

There are some people who just never seem to get off the phone. They would be looking at their phones all the time, messaging, using social networking sites or simply clicking their pictures or playing games. A study suggests that addiction to the smartphone is linked to and serves as a sign of depression.

The study reveals that individuals who have been diagnosed with some form or degree of depression tend to use their phones more. In fact, smartphone addiction is correlated to clinical depression. So, if your teenage son or daughter or someone you know have been using their phones too often, then this might be a red signal towards depression.

Smartphone addiction can be seen as a compulsive behavior and is typically noticed among depressed people. At the same time, it can result in depression as well. People who are prone to developing depression symptoms may also use their phone more often. Their excessive usage and smartphone addiction may actually make them irritable and sad, looking at photos of others, noticing other people’s lives may make them feel that their lives aren’t perfect. This can in turn lead to feelings of extreme sadness, cause depression or even suicidal thoughts.

So, make sure that you keep a tab of how often people use smartphone in your family. If you suspect behavioral changes with smartphone addiction, consider getting a consultation with a psychologist or counsellor.

How to concentrate on studies? I want to study till late night. But then I am not able to wake up early.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Please do not disturb your sleep for your studies. It will have a negative affect on your concentration. I suspect that the adolescent issues with regard to hormones may be affecting your ability to concentrate and remember. When the hormones play up, it lasts for a period of close to two years and during that time you could be influenced by three signs directly impacted by the chemical: you will tend to become aggressive and rebellious, you will become sexually active, and you will have acne and pimple problems. The hormonal imbalances may not only impact your memory because of the chemical but also bring some distractions that come with it. But you may work on the following even if the hormones kick in: Daily exercise of at least half an hour is a must. Even if you go to a gym, ask for aerobic and/or callisthenic exercises with whatever else you are doing. A healthy body harbors a healthy mind. With regard to memory, it is very important that your brain and body is ideally rested to be able to recall whatever is required, rather comfortably. Puzzles pose problems to the brain that help it to use new pathways and neurons, which give the brain considerable exercise. It taxes the left brain to use logic to solve the myriad possibilities which other activities do not stimulate. Crosswords are excellent for vocabulary learning and use. Jigsaws and Rubik cube stimulate different permutations to finally settle on the most likely one. Picture completion and anagrams help approach problem solving from several angles. Do Sudoku, and memory co-relation activities and skills. Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber (whole grains, fruits and vegetables), nuts, avocado, eat dark chocolate, consume less of fat and use olive oil instead, 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. Have a special place of learning, which should be well lit, with soft painted walls, well-ventilated, with no distractions. When you get bored, study by writing. If you repeat learning at least five to seven times, you will apparently remember for a longer time. Sit comfortably but do not slouch. The reading material should be of a fairly large print. Study at small intervals of about 40 minutes and then take a break or change the subject. 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. 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 are some memory enhancing techniques and study methods that your teacher will be able to guide you with. 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 too. 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 junk food.
