Hi lybrate-user, you are suffering from anxiety- fear of death and unknown happening. The fear of death is a common cause and effect of anxiety, and even those without anxiety often experience this fear in some ways. Relaxation exercises coupled with cognitive behavioral therapy will help you overcome this. Consult a psychologist for same. You can consult with me too. All the best.

I'm in depression. Reason is nothing but why it is happening with me since 7 days. Please help.

I'm in depression. Reason is nothing but why it is happening with me since 7 days. Please help.
Depression is an illness like other illnesses. It can happen to any body, even physically strong and mentally robust persons may have depression. There may not be any reason, and it may occur without any reason also. Do you have other features of depression, like:- 1. Do you enjoy the pleasurable things like watching favourite tv serial or music as you used to enjoy earlier? 2. Do you like talking to others or you prefer to be alone now a days? 3. Do you feel sad most of the time and think negative about future? 4. Do you have enough sound sleep, do you feel fresh at morning? 5. Do you ever think yourself guilty of whatever wrong happened to you? 6. Do you feel yourself devoid of energy always? 7. Do you have lost concentration in job/ confidence in self? if more than 03 of the above answer are in yes in your case then you appears to be stressed and depressed. Adopt a healthy lifestyle with good diet, enough rest and recreation, adequate socialization and sleep. I suggest you to consult a psychiatrist who may assess you in detail and help you with some medicines and psychotherapy.

How can I increase my memory. I forget things after some time. Please suggest me.

BHMS
Homeopath, Faridabad
Hi, Take homoeopathic medicine for increasing memory - Anacardium 200/ once daily. Management: -Meditate for at least 15 to 30 minutes each day physically changes your brain, making you less anxious, and more rational and empathetic. -Besides increasing your physical strength and flexibility, yoga changes your brain. Research suggests that in addition to reducing stress, anxiety, and depression, yoga protects the brain from shrinking with age. -Exercise daily as it would can help offset the cognitive decline brought on by aging and increasingly sedentary lifestyles. -Get enough sleep. On average, adults need between 7.5 and 9 hours of sleep each night. When you aren’t getting enough sleep, it affects your brain’s ability to do this, and your memory suffers. -Spend time with people whose company you enjoy, and who make you feel like the best version of you. -laughter can improve short-term memory in older adults. -Cutting down on your use of technology (i. E. Sitting in front of your computer, phone, or tablet) for even 30 minutes can improve your brain health and help you think more deeply.

I feel very irritated if I don't cut my nails and pubic hair, But I don't know why I feel such a way Why I get irritated and angry if I don't cut my nails ,I want to know the reason behind it My self esteem decrease a lot if I don't cut my nails. So why I feel so down as there are many people who don't shave pubic hair and also grow nails but I feel very bad if they grew.

Don't worry, you are perfectly normal. Some people are more hygiene conscious than others. All of us have a habit of doing something in our daily routine and if we don't do that we start feeling low. Try to meditate every morning for 5 minutes to keep yourself calm and composed.

Please take rhus tox 200 - thrice daily for next 3-4 days. Also soak a washcloth in cool tap water, wring out the excess water and then sponge areas like your armpits, feet, hands and groin to reduce the temperature. Also, you can place cold, damp washcloths on your forehead and the back of your neck. The cloth pieces should be changed regularly after a few minutes. This remedy is beneficial when dealing with a high fever as it helps keep temperature under control. You can also take a bath in lukewarm water to relax your body. Taking a shower, however, may not be a good idea. Plus, needless to say, take as much rest as possible as it helps the body fight the illness. Note: do not use very cold water as it may cause the internal body temperature to increase.

She will feel drowsiness so suggest her not to go out or drive. Once the drug is put of her system she should be fine and will not have any other side effect. I would also request that you suggest her to seek help outside for few months. See a counselor or psychologist who could help her cop with her current state and lead healthy life ahead.

Let everything be so. Do not take any step further in your love affair. If you achieve something in your career life, in other words, if you prepare yourself to stand on your own, she will automatically come to you. Explain her about your career goal, and to maintain your relationship intact until then. She will really be impressed by you.

You have weak ego boundaries to so easily identify with your friend's heart attack. As long as you are living a good and healthy lifestyle, you need not fear. So be rational and detach from your friend's issues. In fact, if you look at his lifestyle you would have noticed a lot of contributors that ha had indulged in and has paid the price. So if you maintain a good diet, regular exercise, adequate sleep, and emotional fitness, you cannot (I repeat, you cannot) get a heart attack. Be positive and cultivate good spirituality to keep calm and confident.

First of all, this is a psychological problem. I have performed very poorly in my class 12 exams. I was a topper of my class. But my class 12 final performance is disastrous. This is a very important exam in my life. I will not get any job if I perform poorly. I have let down my mother who have trusted me so much. My father hates me and he will turn me away from house if my results are bad. All this thoughts are eating up my mind. My mind is going out of control. I do not know what to do with my stupid life. I feel there is nothing left in my life. I am totally depressed and frustrated. My only skill was my education and now I have messed it up. I do not know what to do, where to go and I think all my life doors are closed. I blame only myself for this. I cannot bear this humiliation. What have I done. Please help me anyone.

Hello lybrate-user. Okay, I can understand the panic and absolute disappointment you must be feeling. You put all your hopes on one thing and not succeeding there could be very scary. But as you have mentioned in your query, you still haven't got the results. May be your fear of failure is making you underestimate your performance. It's better to not count our chicken before they hatch, even the dead ones! so tell your mind to stop believing in'one of the many' possibilities. Yes, you may get bad results but you may get not so bad results also. Secondly, whatever be the outcome you will have to face it. We all do. There is not a single person in the world who hasn't failed at least once. What we do in the face of failure determines our future, not the failure itself. So, you can accept your responsibility (or credit) for the results and figure out what to do next (hopefully, peacefully) with your parents, or blame yourself or someone or something and not do anything to better your situation or, I hope not, do something to put you in more trouble. The choice is yours. Lastly, you said education is your skill. If that is so then you can use it whenever you want. Batting is virat kohli's skill. Sometimes he gets out on the first ball. He is not a skilled batsman? one exam cannot say everything about you, your life or your abilities. Life is much much bigger and you are much much bigger. You will see that. Your parents want the best for you. They will deal with negative events if you are there with them. Help each other out through each other's failures, that's what families do. If you ever feel things are getting out of hand, consult a professional. Problems will come. Go on solving them one by one and you will be fine. Take care.

Though your general physician might have got the symptoms under control. Anxiety and depression are under the speciality of psychiatry. They more trained and have the expertise to manage the medications on a longer run, with better symptom control and without harm, for example drugs like alprazolam, clonazepam are avoided by psychiatrists on longer run, because they can produce cognitive deficits, personality changes, etc. I suggest you also get a psychiatrist opinion to make sure the medications prescribed are adequate and appropriate.

My concentration levels fall off after 30-40 minutes study. Please help me what can i do?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
At your age I suspect that the adolescent issues with regard to hormones may be affecting your ability to concentrate. 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 chemicals: 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. 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.

Hi I am a 25. Year old unmarried girl. I have been living away from my family from past 7 years now due to study, job etc. Currently I am working. Its been few months that I had an argument with my father regarding marriage stuff as I dnt feel like marrying anyone. Now I have been feeling a lot disconnected to everyone, my family, my frnds, I enjoy almost nothing. I feel blank about everyone. I barely talk to my family members. I barely enjoy any sort of moment. But I was not this kind of girl until that argument occurred. I used to enjoy alot but cannot figure it out what is wrong with me now. I also have a bf whom I am ok marrying with but now I guess I have ideal feeling for everyone. At one time I want to, the other time I am confused. I have few frnds in office with whom I am a completely different person. I njoy, I laugh, I joke but as soon as I return home everything changes. Though these people does not count much for me I stay happy wid them but not with the persons closely known to me. I am so annoyed with the way my life has become. I can not figure it out. Please let me know if this is any kind of depression or something. Thanks.

Hi. It could be a lot of things. May be due to stress in family your outlook towards rest of your friends and social circle has changed. It could be sub conciously there are lot of things on your mind and you do not have outlet for that thats making you feel sad and you are not aware of the reason. May be due to lot of things on your mind you are not able to share with any one. It could be that there is no happy life scenario for you right now. It could be leading to mild depression, but you need to talk it out. To understand it better, consult a psychologist online or in person. All the best. Don't worry it will be fine.

You are victim of immaturity and lack of experience in heterosexual relations. this so called love failure may be your first experience,generally leads to failure if you learn from your experience your mistakes then you succeed in geting romentic love in future. if you breakdown in nervousness then you learn nothing.think why you failed and decide about not making such mistakes again.read psychology books learn about relationship.learn about feminine psychology. there are medicine like olenzapine which may help you forget her.but there is no harm if you remember as a person you like a good friend who is not with you.take energy from her pleasant memory.set a goal in life and disolve your psychic energy in it's achievement.
