Consult a dermetologist because he is quiet old his immunity may be poor.

Take care of fungal lesion well otherwise it may spread to nails and other body parts because of itching. dont wait to consult.

Anxiety is due to insecurity and fear of negative outcome or result of alll the actions. Stop worrying for the result all the time by leaving it to destiny, focus on your present actions and not the anticipated fear of failure and your anxiety will fly off!

If you live worrying about what other people will think and say of you, you will be ruined. You have not given details of your health problem so it is difficult for me to tell you what to do. If your mother, who knows you best recommends this course of action, I suggest that you do so. If you think she does not understand the modern day kid or you, in particular, talk to her about your worries and she will advise you best. Sometimes a change in course does wonders to your intellectual prowess and help you with some confidence too. One year spent fruitfully will do you more good than harm.

I have been smoking regularly for 40 year, I want to get some test done to check my health and the early risk of cancer (if any). What tests should I go for?

Smoking exposes you too various types of cancer mainly being lung cancer and cancer of your aerodigestive tract. This means your lung, mouth, wind pipe, food pipe and stomach are at risk. The maximum risk is with the first two. There is also the risk of cardiac problems. I would advise you to ideally undergo a comprehensive health check for cardiac status (stress test), lung function (pft) and others. For cancer though there are no reliable tests to detect cancers early, an oral exam by the surgeon at the health check up, an endoscopy if persistent ulcer complaints and a low dose ct scan of the chest are advised in chronic smokers. (though as I mentioned earlier, none are foolproof.)

Hi. Pain in chest can be of muscular, bony, lungs or heart origin! Will have to get yourself examined for proper diagnosis and thus proper treatment. Share more details related to your problem and do tell me any other medical condition is there. For giving up habit of smoking, take homoeopathic medicine which will help you to get rid of your habit of smoking. Schwabe's Daphne Indica/ thrice daily for a month. After a month, report back to me.

You will need to do a personality development course with all the five factors to be worked on: the physical fitness, emotional fitness, intellectual fitness, social fitness, and spiritual fitness. Apart from that you need to do regular exercise and keep yourself fit and prim. You need to follow a healthy diet of whole grains, fruits and vegetables. You must have a minimum sleep of at least 6 hours every day. Public speaking skills and conversation skills will also help you tremendously. The more knowledge you have the better so read a lot, attend seminars, conferences, discourses, and keep yourself updated with the latest news from tv, internet, magazines, and newspapers. You must also educate, and not just qualify, in good and useful college courses to develop knowledge and skills. Develop good social skills by meeting a lot of people from various walks of life: you are the friends you keep. You must be spiritually sound and have a good set of values and respect for life.

How helpful is puzzle solving to sharpen my memory?

Post Graduate Diploma In Rehabilitation Psychology, M A Clinical Psychology

Hi Good question! Puzzles, brainteasers etc are indeed helpful to sharpen your memory. Every time we form a memory a neural brain connection is created. Memory creation is associated with the strengthening of existing connections or the growth of new connections between neurons_ which are specialized cells to transmit information.When we solve puzzles we brainstorm in order solve it, we apply available knowledge and logic, we recall facts, we try hit & trial from previous experiences. In doing so at neural level we help the neural synapses firing going and we revive the connection each time thus strengthening memory. I hope it help. ALL THE BEST.

I feel sometimes lonely & despondent with life. During recession I had a very difficult time and have suffered losses.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

You also suffer from schizophrenia, and should be on medication. I guess you stopped medicines on your own. This indicates that you do not cooperate with the doctor?s prescription. This is really dangerous and can lead to a lot of uncontrolled reactions. The loss in the recession is the least of the concerns. This is an incurable disease and medication is very effective in helping you to live a normal life. Please meet a psychiatrist immediately and let him review your condition to see what will work for you now. Depression, loneliness and despondency can all confuse the situation and appear to be independent of the primary disease. Don?t fool yourself and delay what can turn out to be debilitating in the long run and that incapacitate you forever.

If you are constantly confused about doing the right thing, this is a matter of your lac of confidence. You are afraid of the consequences (result) of your actions" will it be right. This stems from the feeling" I am not good enough no matter what.

Dear, your problem is pretty simple and there is no ligic behind it. But some how you don' t like the issue and therefore become anxious. In our unconscious mind, we have so many such fears we don; t know the reasons for. Psycho analytic psychotherapy helps to know the reason from the unconscious mind and then to treat it perfectly. For the time being, don; t worry about future. We will tackle the problem when it comes in front of you. Take care.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand your emotions. But I fail to understand why you can't tell your parents. Tell your parents to ask that girl for you. Then you will know exactly what is in her mind. Don't confuse yourself when you have a clear cut idea in front of you. Take care.

You must speak to other people and get out of this fear. Don’t submit to the depression. If you find the fight is too much, then go for counseling first and then for medication. The combination is ideal to combat this condition. This is the only condition were you are required to literally do the opposite of what you feel like doing. Depression makes you want to withdraw, lie down, sleep, become lethargic, slow down, make you too lazy to even think etc. So when I suggested doing the opposite, you will need to fight this disease. You must become active; stay upright during the daylight time; meet people; never sleep during the day, and wake up by 6 am every day, play some active games, especially contact games, do physical exercises, talk to people and join some social clubs, eat more of proteins and vegetables, attend Yoga classes etc. Watch a lot of sitcoms on TV or comedies and cheer yourself up. Go for excursions in groups, for outings, camps, conferences, and religious conventions. Get a pet dog and spend time training it, exercising it and relating to it. Expose yourself to some sunlight every day, at least 30 minutes but not in the scotching heat. I hope you can find someone to love and be loved too, if you are not already married. Whatever happens please incorporate these three important adaptations in your life: always be responsible, be respectful, and be functional. If you did these three things, lots of things will go well in life. Please pray and have faith in God to alleviate your sufferings.

This is an unfounded fear of people developed from sometime in your childhood perhaps or because it could be a family trait or behavior. We are all social animals and need to learn to live and be with people all through our lives. If this is crippling you, you need to meet with a counselor and sort out this fear of people. The counselor will guide you and help you will some measures to build self-image, self-esteem and to learn to love yourself. You need to believe that people are basically good and the threat you envisage may be ill-founded on some misconstrued notion developed over many years and experiences. Anyway, you must deal with your fear of people and it will be the best solution to your problem. You need to change your perception of the fearful stimulus then you can change your response to the fear. The first one is the best and will preempt the need for the second. If you are already far gone into the reaction mode, then you need both responses to counter the attack. The way we see things in life (like half empty or half full glass) is very dependent on our attitude. Attitude may have developed over many years but fortunately, can change in a matter of sustained choices made and acted upon now. Accordingly, you choose to see things as either threatening or as an opportunity. The opportunist will be positive and will work with the situation to make good out of it. The individual who sees it as threatening, will, out of fear, try to avoid/run away from the situation or react with anxiety. Yes, self-belief does impact it too, but you can see that prior to that, perception will tarnish the belief system too. Here, you can see that all the resolution lies in just changing your perception/attitude, even if it is against odds. Changing your response, despite the perception, is building up of your reserves and resources to handle any contingency that life throws up at you. And life throws up situations quite regularly and heavily. In the meantime do some confidence building exercises by attending a personality development course, public speaking skills course (I suggest you join the Toastmasters Club), work out at a gym to build good self-image, and join social events to practice your skills. Surprisingly many people are often in the same boat as you, and so you are not alone. The very people you are intimidated by may be afraid of you too, though not to this extent! There are three important developments to have to create an autonomous personality: Awareness, intimacy, and spontaneity. If you are super aware or too conscious of yourself, it will affect the intimacy and spontaneity. Although your problem is now directly to do with intimacy, you can see that they are all connected. Go and work on these matters with a counselor for this level of social panic to disappear from your life for good.
