I am 28 years old. I got sometimes nervous when I speak. I am not able to introduce myself in a meeting. I have tried Siddha medicine. But I am not fully recovered. Could anyone help me regarding my problem.

I would suggest you to take any kind of medicines. For some people social anxiety is pretty pervasive. The most common example is anxiety over public speaking. Making small talk, eating in front of others and using public restrooms also can trigger worry and unease for some. 1. Try a self-help manual. Self-help manuals are designed to supplement therapy, but they’re also good tools for working on your own. 2. Work with a therapist. If social anxiety is stopping you from doing things you want or need to do, or you haven’t had much success with self-help, seek professional help. Find a therapist who specializes in anxiety disorders. You can start your search here. 3. Practice deep breathing every day. It’s helpful to engage in deep breathing before an anxiety-provoking social situation, But practice this technique every day. This way it becomes second nature, and you don’t hyper focus on deep breathing and miss an entire conversation. 5. Create objective goals. People tend to disqualify the positive when they feel anxious, That’s why therapists encourage clients to create objective behavioral goals, he said. These are behaviors that anyone in the room would be able to observe. It doesn’t matter how you feel or whether you’re blushing or sweating (which you can’t control anyway) in a social situation. For instance, if you’re working in a group setting, the objective behavior would be to make three comments. This also gives you a good barometer for judging your progress. Again, you’re not focusing on whether you felt nervous. Rather, you’re focusing on whether you performed the actual behavior. Also, avoid focusing on others’ reactions. It doesn’t matter how your colleagues received your idea in the meeting. What matters is that you actually spoke up. It doesn’t matter whether a girl or guy said yes to your dinner invite. What matters is that you actually asked. It doesn’t matter how your child’s teacher reacted when you declined to volunteer for yet another school trip. What matters is that you were assertive and respected your own needs. 6. Keep a rational outlook. Dispute both bleak thoughts that undermine your performance and fuel your anxiety, and equally unrealistic thoughts that are irrationally positive. If you’re asking someone out, it’s not rational to think, “They’re definitely going to say yes.” But it is rational to consider, “They might,”. If social anxiety is sabotaging your goals and stopping you from living the life you want, seek help and try the above strategies. Social anxiety is highly treatable, You can get better, and grow in the process. All the very best.

You should not discontinue this medication without the doctor's approval. Headaches are the side effects of this medication but not on withdrawal. So kindly consult your doctor. You should not take it over a long term use either. I also suggest that you attend counselling together with the medication because this is prescribed for depression. Both together will give you best results. Never self-medicate or discontinue medication on your own. If you are not satisfied with this doctor then get a second opinion.

Dear, don't worry. Everyone are selfish. If I cross you, I will be able to show you many incidents where you always work for your family. The problem is the way you are thinking. Introspect and you will find the truth. Take care.

My daughter is 7 years old but she have a problem to remember of study que ans wt should I do for it.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

For a child of that age use a play-way method to help her remember. However, I am concerned whether you are pushing her too much or having high expectations on her. If the teachers are also complaining, then there may be some concern. In that case I recommend that you go to a child counselor who specializes in child learning difficulties who will need information, both genetic and as well as her history from prenatal days. If there are any disturbing experiences, they may play a role in distracting her. Simple sensory recall techniques are taught very well in a Montessori school, and so you may consider shifting her to one such school. Picture recall is an easily used method to improve memory. Before that she must be able to concentrate: Yoga has some good exercises to improve concentration, which you might explore.

Depression is cured. But now you are suffering with depressive thoughts. It is a psychological feeling of impotency. If you can recover yourself. Otherwise better to consult psychologist. Psychological counselling is helpful to change the thought process. You need behavioural modification therapy and life style management. Better to maintain friendly relation with your wife. Do not think too much about sex. Give priority for foreplay. Slowly you will achieve it. It is better to play main role of your wife. Encourage her she will cooperate to you. Do not use any medicine. Once you take it may be addicted to you. Without medicine you cannt do anything. Better to attend to psychological counselling sessions in delhi. Do not think too much about this problem. Do not maintain aloneness. It is a psychological feeling. You will come out of the problem. Be share your personal feelings and problems with your close friends and family members. Be sociable all the time and be happy. Ok all the best.

Dear lybrate user, if appears that this lady does not have any physical ailment. The psychiatric medicines have not helped much. In such situation it is very important to understand the motive behind her behaviour. It might be" attention seeking personality disorder" in which the person tries very hard to seek attention from others, at any cost. There are a number of reasons why the person needs this attention so desperately. To know more about all this, take her to a counsellor. The counsellor might be able to understand her behaviour after talking to her. I think she will need counselling along with some medicines. Take her to the counsellor, who can start her therapy. You may have to consult a psychiatrist again for medicines because a counsellor cannot prescribe medicines. The counsellor and the psychiatrist will work together to help this lady. All the best.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. You must forgive him. If you don't and continuously doubt him, he will feel bad and there are chances of depression and other problems. Please forgive him. I need to talk to you in detail. Please talk to your husband in this regard. I suggest online family counselling. Feel free to contact me. Take care.

Yes, you do sound depressed and it seems for good reasons too even though you have not elaborated them. You must go and meet with a counselor immediately and if that person advises that you meet with a doctor you must do so and cooperate to your utmost. Please visit these professionals along with your parents. In the meantime please do the following sincerely because you could resolve the problem better with good cooperation: Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber, nuts, avocado, exercise regularly, eat dark chocolate, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. I suggest you do the opposite of what this depression makes you feel like doing (actually, not doing): you will need to fight this condition. You must become active; stay upright during the daylight time; meet people; never sleep during the day, 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, attend Yoga classes etc. Watch 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 scorching heat. Whatever happens, please incorporate these three important adaptations in your life: always be responsible, be respectful, and be functional. If you did these three, lots of things will go well in life. Please pray and have faith in God to alleviate your sufferings. Don’t wait for others to help. Use your own motivation, which might be at its lowest, but persevere and win this battle. Above all to be really happy, you need to live in love and for love. Learn all about emotions and how to handle them and that will get you out of the depression rather easily and quickly. A counselor is there only to facilitate you, all the hard word must come from you, and your cooperation with that person is very critical for your success. Be positive every day and learn to be contented with what you have. Do some left brain exercises: it is the happy brain. Here are a few suggestions: 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. Whatever happens please cooperate with the therapy and do not discontinue until the condition is completely resolved. Do go for marriage counseling too and discuss some of your​ dreams to see if they can be partially at least fulfilled.

Dear lybrate-user, you are unnecessarily worrying. You are thinking more about your crush because she is your crush. Not your priorities. That means your crush your priority. Once you make your future your priority, your attitude trds your priority will change. Your priority itself will change. I suggest psychological counseling.

He is drinking way too much for his age. There is no other way than to admit him to a rehabilitation center. He cannot be given that choice and he is not responsible at all. Your mom can easily approach his work center and speak to the HR department and get their support too: both financially and in terms of granting him at least 6 months leave to clean him up. Before that, she will need to approach the rehabilitation center about the entire process, fees, time period etc. and when they can come and pick him up. If she gives her consent, they will come one day when your father is sloshed and just pick him up and take him to the center, without any choice. If nothing is done, he is likely to end up in death, which incidentally seems to appear like his 'Rock​ Bottom'.

At your age this claim is serious. If you have depression then there are some major ramifications to take into account. I believe there may be some genetic predisposition or there has been some childhood issue, related to anger, that needs urgent attention. You must go and meet with a counselor immediately and if that person advises that you meet with a doctor you must do so and cooperate to your utmost. Please visit these professionals along with your parents. In the meantime please do the following sincerely because you could resolve the problem better with good cooperation: Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber, nuts, avocado, exercise regularly, eat dark chocolate, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. I suggest you do the opposite of what this depression makes you feel like doing (actually, not doing): you will need to fight this condition.
