I am facing problem from 3-4 years of stammering problem. I am a student. I can't read properly.

M.Sc - Applied Psychology, MS - Counselling and Psychotherapy
Psychologist,
Hello lybrate user, I believe every person who stutters is slightly different. From the top, we would all look same but if you dive deeper you would know everyone is different with respect to syllables on which they stutter, frequency, places they might stutter, may stutter while talking to specific people etc. So you need to analyse your stuttering with respect to above points so you can work to reduce it with greater efficiency. Here are the things which is useful: 1. Breathing: this has been already stressed enough by other people. Notice your breathing pattern when you stammer. You will notice that you breath shallow while stammering and try to complete sentence as soon as possible which leads to more stuttering. Taking control of your breathing can do wonders. Breath deep and talk slowly. 2. Substitution: when you make note of syllables/words on which you stammer, you can substitute those with their synonyms on which you don't stutter. Another trick is inserting things like'umm'you know'i feel' etc when you feel that you are about to stammer. 3. Mirror technique: this helped me a lot. Shut the door, stand alone in front of a mirror, start reading any small article/chapter loudly for around 20 mins from a magazine/ newspaper which you haven't read before. When you are done with reading that, look in the mirror and try to talk about it loudly. Try it for 30 days and see if you can feel the difference. 4. Acceptance: accept the fact that there are millions like you. Don't try to hide it or run away from it. Accept it as a part of you and try to live with it. Thank you. Try to consult any speech therapist too.

I used to get angry easily. I get irritated on some issues I'll get anger. Y this I'll happen n say me how to control. I don't no wat to do. please say how to control or wat to do for that please help me.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

At your age this is an indication that some experience from childhood has not been fully resolved. Meet with a counselor and get some help dealing with your emotions. Anger should never be controlled but expressed always though in an appropriate manner. If you play games and sports it is a very good avenue to expend the energy of anger. Deep-rooted anger may have high levels and quick reactions too.

One of my male friend is always interested to particular guy who is my other friend .whenever he is near he just rub thighs and do all kind of indirect physical sex activities like touching his body , rubbing thighs . One time he has given alchcol to that guy and he just enjoyed him for a night by rubbing that guy thighs and seeing his private parts. But he is not like that to other guys .he is very shy to ask so he told me to ask for it . His question is he a gay or bisexual. Is there is any problem to him in future. But both are the best friends.Please tell.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
If he is interested in females sexually also then he is bisexual. Otherwise, he is gay. Now that these leanings are acceptable he can find a partner among his own sex and see if that is what he wants in life. However, it is advisable for him to seek counselling and determine that this is really what he wants and that he is not influenced by other factors.

Hi I am 46 years old man. For the last 2-3 year I do not get proper sleep. I am on sleeping pills but since in the morning I feel I have not got a complete sleep. I am diabetic, asthmatic and do not do any exercises. I smoke and drink too. Kindly advice how I can get a proper sleep?

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Chennai
I am not sure who got you hooked onto sleeping pills. On a longer run they will shrink your brain, resulting in early onset dementia, personality changes, memory changes, even withdrawal seizures. Kindly consult a psychiatrist, get your sleep evaluated, and he will gradually wane you off the sleeping pills and give pills which promote sleep by acting on the cause of sleep disturbance, he may also educate you on sleep hyigiene.

I am suffering from insomnia & heavy stress due to some personal problems. I get relaxed only after smoking. please suggest me something to get away from smoking. Really I don't want to do this.

Dear Lybrate User, *Try to keep to a regular timing for going to bed*Avoid fried and heavy foods. Eat early and light food at night so that the food is almost digested by the time you go to bed. *Prefer fruits and green vegetables. *Fix daily work schedule and be busy with your work. Don’t keep pending problems in mind. Note down the points and leave them for next day’s action. *Don’t do stimulating mental work or keep watching TV which can keep your mind agitated or active. This will not allow you to sleep. LCD screen will also have adverse effect. *Day’s physical exercise makes you tired and induces sleep. *A warm bath in the evening will also be helpful. *Low volume music also induces sleep. *Keep your bed room neat, dark and cool. You may cover your eyes with bed sheet. *Drink plenty of water during the day rather than toward bedtime. *Don’t have stimulating drinks like tea or coffee Drinking a glass of milk before going to bed is fine. *Daily Massage body with coconut oil and bath with warm water,

I just don't enjoy the things I used to, and I don't feel much like visiting friends or family. Is this part of aging?

Dear lybrate-user. Every person is unique. Every person has his own way of behavior and personality. If you don't enjoy things you do, it is because of your attitude. You have to change your attitude and understand yourself. This is not part of ageing. Take care.

Psychiatrist,
lybrate-user, after going through your narrative, I feel that you are having Generalized anxiety disorder. This can be managed with yoga and pranayam, to a significant extent. If you consult or being referred to clinical psychologists, they will teach you relaxation training and cognitive behaviour therapy or mindfulness therapy. If your anxiety is still considerable, then you may be prescribed few drugs. I can understand how much it is affecting your academic performance and your self esteem. It can be definitely managed with yoga or by relaxation training etc. Please consult a psychiatrist. I wish you overcome your distress and do well in life.

I feel sleepy whole the day and at night I can not? Why? Its not love because it may be the pressure of exams on my mind yet I want to what is this? A disease or selfishness?

Ph. D - Psychology, Professional Certified Coach

Exam pressure is causing stress. What you need is to learn some techniques to stay calm and relaxed which will help you not only focus and concentrate on your study but it will also help you recall during your exams. Try following things on a daily basis and you will see the positive result. Ry following things to learn relaxation response which leads to better coping mechanism on a daily basis. To begin with doing guided progressive muscular relaxation before sleeping will help you relax. You could google and download an audio file. I would also suggest you to take a multiple small break to take 3 nice and deep breath while keeping your eyes closed. You could do this while sitting or standing or while even walking or climbing stairs (keep your eyes open in that case). When you take a nice and deep break there is actual physiological change in your body. This will help you to activate parasympathetic nervous system which promotes relaxation and helps you calm down and think more clearly. This will also actually improve your performance in your work. Along with this exercise is one of the best way to relive stress and stay fit. Engage in any kind of physical activity at least 4 times a week. This also helps in stress reduction. Along with this some relaxation exercises as well as engaging in joyful activities such as music, singing, dancing, reading, being in nature, gardening, talking with friends or anything which you enjoy will help reducing stress and rejuvenation of your mind and body. Have good routine for sleep and eating. 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. Along with this also increase consumption of raw vegetables in the form of salad in both the meals of your day. Hope this helps. Wishing you very best.

I have my exams coming up in a week's time. I am unable to memorize the course content. I keep forgetting the answers. I feel very helpless and frustrated. I have no interest in studying the subject. Please help.

MBBS, MD Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Kottayam
Dear Lybrate user, It seems you are quite worried about your upcoming exams. As there is just one week left, try to make a realistic time table to revise the topics. Revise using old question papers. Use the gap between exams for revising. Even after proper preparation and revision, if you are not able to recollect answers, try to relax properly. Take short breaks, exercise and have adequate sleep. If you are getting negative thoughts, write it down and check whether it's useful. If not, ignore the thoughts and try to replace with positive thoughts. Physical symptoms like nausea, sweating, tremor etc can be dealt with by relaxation techniques. Inspite of these, if symptoms are persisting and especially since you are currently on medications, contact your psychiatrist for a detailed evaluation and dose adjustments. Good luck for your exams.

Now I stopped my medicines as I want to go Ayurvedic treatment for it but faced WD symp or may be more anxiety I don't know as fast heart beat, unconsciousness,severe anxiety. Is that Wd symp or suddenly stopped increase my symptoms if yes how many it will be there in my body so that I will start my Ayurvedic sessions?

First of all do not stop any medicines abruptly because doing so will cause rebound of symptoms .First and foremost change your diet and lifestyle .Ayurveda might not be the right choice. You have to treat the root cause and not the symptoms .The cause for your anxiety needs to be explored stop dairy and caffeine excess. No animal products. Go on a whole food plant based diet. Need to take a detailed history both dietary and medical. This problem can be reversed with diet and life style changes. I am a lifestyle Physician and wellness Dr. take a consult from me if you want proper advice and be healthy without medications or minimal medications.

I am smoking regularly per day I smoke almost 15 cigrate past 5 years is there any problem.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Yes many problems. Best age to stop smoking is before 40, In fact do not start all Only by using strong will power and avoiding all situations where you feel like smoking, chewing tobacco or drinking or using drugs avoiding friends who smoke and diverting mind by reading or chewing a gum, like NICORETTE 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. Which can be prescribed if asked personally Cigarette smoking is a leading preventable cause of mortality. It kills more than 60 lakh people worldwide every year. More than 50% of regular smokers would invariably die from tobacco-related illnesses which includes heart attack, cancer or asthmatic lung diseases. Best age to stop smoking is before 40 31st May is “World No Tobacco Day” Quitting smoking before the age of 40 is associated with larger decline in premature death than stopping it at a later date. Best age therefore to stop smoking is before 40. However, stopping smoking even after the age of 50 is still associated with lower risk of death as compared to those who continue to smoke. Even in smokers aged 80 years or more, quitting smoking appears to reduce some mortality.
