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 need to study for long hours but cant? what to do for that?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist,
You cannot study continuously for too long. The human attention span is good only for about 40 minutes at a time. If you want to study for long hours, you will need to break up the time into 40 minute slots and then take a small break of 5 minutes between the slots. It is also recommended that you can change the subject to another after the 40 minute slot. During noon times, it is better to do written study. Group study can last for hours but the people must be serious enough for it to be fruitful. Attending tutorials will help tremendously too. Follow your bio-rhythm as a guide to study difficult subjects at certain times and easier ones at other times. A variety of study methods and means will make it possible to stretch your attention span. Also if you are more audio or visual, that will impact the duration of your study time. For example, if you are too auditory in your mode of study, any visual inputs will exhaust you more easily. Generally do eat well (especially the breakfast), sleep well, exercise regularly, and learn to be stress-free for the best study results. Some memory exercises will also help; if you talk to your teachers, they will explain those tricks. You must learn to study smart instead of hard. This is the key to study: studying adequately but retaining plenty. The right time, the right way, the right effort, and the right attitude will go a long way to make you smart and make efficient use of your time.

My friend is a struggling director in the film industry, and has no income. He is having severe anxiety and depression disorder. And he's been suppressing it for a year or more. His family is in a horrible shape to support him for doctor's appointments and medicines. Neither do I have anything to help him. It's getting worse day by day. Every night he feels like as though he is going to die. Apart from his family really not being able to afford treatment, they do not understand why it is important to treat this, they don't understand the hell, and the severity of this. But I do as a year ago I had been through the same. What can be done?

There are a lot of social work organizations that help with free counseling and sometimes offer medications as well. If he contacts them he can get their support and seek professional help immediately. Any delay will only worsen his condition and he desperately needs timely help. If you are in a position to extend some financial help especially to meet the psychiatrist's help, it will go a long way. These visits are not so frequent and medication is a must, apart from the counseling. Therapy can be availed from the free counseling services that are surely available in your city. In the meantime please guide him with these guidelines to do the following sincerely because he 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.

Dear, you could be disappointed. Disappointment also produce symptoms equivalent to depression like loss of sleep, lack of appetite, suicidal tendency etc. Introspect. Have you had any disappointing episodes in the near past? I think two or more counseling sessions should be good for you. Please let me know if you are willing for telephone counseling sessions. Take care.

I keep forgetting things very often. When I am told to something, I forget what I was doing previously and I make a lot of silly mistakes. How can I overcome this?

7 Ways to Remember Anything Research-based strategies to boost your memory and keep it strong 7 Strategies for Remembering 1.Become interested in what you're learning. We're all better remembering what interests us. Few people, for example, have a difficult time remembering the names of people they find attractive. If you're not intrinsically interested in what you're learning or trying to remember, you must find a way to become so. 2.Find a way to leverage your visual memory. You'll be surprised by how much more this will enable you to remember. For example, imagine you're at a party and are introduced to five people in quick succession. How can you quickly memorize their names? Pick out a single defining visual characteristic of each person and connect it to a visual representation of their name, preferably through an action of some kind. Remember: Memory is predominantly visual. 3.Create a mental memory tree. If you're trying to memorize a large number of facts, find a way to relate them in your mind visually with a memory tree. Construct big branches first, then leaves. Branches and leaves should carry labels that are personally meaningful to you in some way, and the organization of the facts (" leaves") should be logical. 4.Associate what you're trying to learn with what you already know. It seems the more mental connections we have to a piece of information, the more successful we'll be in remembering it. This is why using mnemonics. Write out the items to be memorized over and over and over. 5.When reading for retention, summarize each paragraph in the margin. This requires you to think about what you're reading, recycle it, and teach it to yourself again. Even take the concepts you're learning and reason forward with them; apply them to imagined novel situations, which creates more neural connections to reinforce the memory. 6.Do most of your studying in the afternoon. Though you may identify yourself as a" morning person" or" evening person" at least one Study. Suggests your ability to memorize isn't influenced as much by what time of day you perceive yourself to be most alert but by the time of day you actually study—afternoon appearing to be the best. 7.Get adequate sleep to consolidate and retain memories. Not just at night after you've studied but the day, you study as well. Far better to do this than to stay up cramming all night for an exam.

This must be getting difficult for you as you see your partner losing her temper often. In counselling you can vent out your feelings, learn to talk assertively and what you might be doing to earn her anger every time. It would be helpful if your partner also meets a counsellor and gets insights and awareness about herself and her behaviour.

Dear lybrate user. You can reduce your blood hemoglobin content by donating blood. Donating blood is one of the best methods to lower hemoglobin levels. Other steps you can take: - make sure your multivitamin does not contain iron. - avoid iron cookware. - limit vitamin c to know more than 500 mg/day until ferritin level decreases. - check iron content of your water. - limit food sources high in iron, such as red meats and fortified cereals/grains. Take care.

Respected Sir, The fact that you mention that you were suffering from Depression and GAD since 7 years and took treatment only for 2 would lead me to believe that you were either irregular in your treatment or inadequately treated. If that is the case, the symptoms you mentioned are clearly due to persisting of your depression. On the other hand if you have been taking the drugs regularly and still have these symptoms, that would make yours a resistant case. I would have to know the drugs that you had been taking to help you out further, if you feel that you were resistant even after complying with the treatment.

Dear sir my habit smoking but I am having asthma problem please help me avoid smoking habit how can I do that sir.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
This is a dangerous combination. Smoking directly attacks the respiratory apparatus and your asthma is a respiratory illness. You can ill-afford to continue smoking unless you want to kill yourself early and in a most miserable way! You must seriously take a call and quit smoking now. Here?s how you can go about it: The habit can be very difficult to halt because of the many conditions attached to smoking. In fact these conditions can exist all through the day unlike other addictions. But your desire to want to stop is the most important factor. It is important to find out about the ill-effects of smoking to have a reason that alarms you about continuing in the habit. The information is really scary. The nicotine in tobacco smoke stimulates the heart beat to raise the blood pressure in no time at all. Tobacco tar smears the lung surface and causes big patches over time to become dysfunctional. So you must avoid it like the plague: it is just very bad medicine for you. In fact it is highly toxic too. You will need to stop smoking or consuming any tobacco related items with immediate effect. You should start vigorous exercises, gradually increasing it over a period of time. Do deep breathing exercises every time you feel like smoking (try Yoga), and replace the oral urge with some healthy food substitute to satiate the need. You may also take hard candy or chewing gum. If the urge is too strong, then use nicotine chewing gum or nicotine patches, for a little while until the smoking drive reduces substantially. You may also join Smokers Anonymous in your city where the support is really extraordinary for like-minded people who are also in the same situation. Keep yourself occupied or engaged with interesting activities during the times when it is most tempting. Keep the company of non-smokers for some time i.e. at least for the first 21 days. Above all announce it to everyone that you have quit smoking. You must persevere with the best support until you defeat this addiction. Counseling is very useful in the initial stages and when temptations are at their highest. All the damage you incurred earlier because of the smoking can be reverted back to normal in quick time.

Schizophrenia: Can Genetics be the Reason Behind it?

DPM, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Mumbai
Schizophrenia: Can Genetics be the Reason Behind it?

Schizophrenia is a psychiatric disorder in which a person’s mood, knowledge, thought and several other characteristics gets disturbed. We can notice most of the adults and old people with few symptoms of schizophrenia, which are most commonly left unidentified. The exact cause of schizophrenia is not yet known. The person feels that they are being constantly watched, they feel the presence of someone or something, which is not actually there. They are always suspicious and think that other people are gossiping and thinking about them.

Possible causes of Schizophrenia
Though the exact cause of schizophrenia is not known there are few factors, which contribute to the cause of schizophrenia.

  1. Genetic factors: People with a family history of schizophrenia are at higher risk of getting schizophrenia.
  2. Environmental factors: Environmental factors include excessive stress during pregnancy or later stages of life. Several other factors during pregnancy and childhood are responsible for causing schizophrenia. These factors are:
    1. Decreased oxygen level during delivery due to premature birth or prolonged labour
    2. Parental loss or separation in early stages of life
    3. Parental exposure to virus or during infancy
    4. Childhood physical or sexual abuse
    5. Abnormal brain structures and brain chemistry

Sings and symptoms of schizophrenia

  1. Hallucination: To see, feel or hear anything that really does not exist is known as hallucination.
  2. Delusion: A thought or belief of a person, which is either false or impossible in reality is known as delusion.
  3. Thought and speech disturbances: The thought process and speech of a schizophrenic will be disorganized, due to which he or she  will fumble or is distracted as they are unable to align their thoughts.
  4. Difficulty in concentrating: It is difficult for people suffering from schizophrenia to concentrate on the task at hand.
  5. Erratic behaviour: People suffering from schizophrenia tend to behave erratically, either they will be too jumpy or will be perfectly still for hours at a stretch. Most people belief that those who are suffering from schizophrenia are often violent in nature, which actually is not the case.

Treatment for schizophrenia
Schizophrenia can be treated, if identified at an early stage. It is best advised to consult a psychiatrist the moment you spot the symptoms. Anti psychotic drugs, self help behaviour change, counselling and rehabilitation are few treatment modalities available for schizophrenia.
