I'm working in a IT company. From my school days I was bought up in a atmosphere where all like me and respect me. Infact most intelligent girl in school, college wherever I go. I'm very straight forward. I don't like people with two faces. I don't like people speaking at back. In my company I was put into designation which I feel like'it's not the right designation for me' I was put into support project in which I will have work for only an hour a day. But the company pays me very well. The thing is I'm not satisfied with my job now. During my college times I have a start up for me, for which I used to work for day and night. Sometimes I have not even come to home. I'm that much dedicated to my job I need a change from this job. There are many internal opportunities in my company. But my manager is not releasing me from this project. Yesterday I went to talk to my manager regarding this. And she doesn't speak like a manager she spoke like a local person. It triggered my anger I argued with her. She told many words which has hurt me very badly. Atlast convinced me since she was afraid I may escalate her. Now the problem is I'm disturbed. My mind is keep on thinking about yesterday's conversation in repeat mode. I couldn't concentrate on anything. I need some positive energy. I want to survive in that place. She made me felt inferior. :(I need a good counselling.

Dear lybrate-user, we cannot change the thinking of people around us what we can do is to make ourself such that we don't get affected by the behaviour of others. We cannot make everyone happy ,there is always two sides of coin. Is anyone that much important that you are wasting precious moment of your life for her/him. If someone will give you something and you will not accept that thing ,then that thing will remain with the same person, make your life's philosophy like this because at every stage of life there will be many people who will criticise you at different points of life and as you will progress then this criticism will increase ,think about the head of any nation how much criticism he/she has to face. Inspite of being the most powerful person people always cricises him/her for whatever he does. When these types of thought disturbs you write it on paper, make yourself busy as much as you can so that you don't get free time to think on this topic, make some good friends, with whom you can share everything, if possible take break for few days and make some plan to go anywhere. If you need my help you can contact me online also .take care.

Dear, at your age, memory problems like amnesia are not common. Therefore, you don't need any medicine. Please do not self diagnose and self treat. Memory and mind power consists of understanding, storage and recollection of information you learn. Understanding depends on concentration. The more creative you are on doing tasks or reading, the more you understand. Storage and recollection depends on your understanding and how well you review what you have learned. Repetition and review of material learned and other tasks provides easy recollection. You can improve your concentration and total brain power with the help of green leafy vegetables, exercise, creative activities, number puzzles like sudoku etc. Hard work is the key to learning and recollection.

Dear lybrate user, to reduce stress in your life, start some exercise, meditation or pick up any hobby. Try to understand the source of this stress, analyse it and find the best options to get rid of this. Stress might cause overeating, so please learn" stress management techniques" to lose weight, concentrate on food having lesser calories and more of proteins and nutrients. Have plenty of water. Go for regular exercise, yoga, cycling, jogging whatever you like. To have perfect relations with your wife, understand what she needs from you. Encourage her to express her feelings and needs and you also express your feelings and needs to her. Open communication, individual freedom of choice, faith, care and love make a healthy married relationship. Also, please understand that if you want to have an" ideal" life, which will have less stress, no sadness and excellent relationships, then you are sure to be disappointed. Every other person in this world would like to have this. But this is not possible. We all will have some stress in life, we cannot be always happy, there will be sad moments in our life. Our relationships also will never be perfect, because each person in this world is unique and hence it is difficult to get along with other people. Because of all this, it is important to have" rational expectations" from life and even from people around us. If you try to be a perfectionist, you might not be satisfied in life. Take care.

Hi sir i' am medical student, I have stuttering problem for 10 years so i' m not able to answering the questions and not communicate with patients. What is the treatment for that?

Dear, stuttering or stammering could be due to two reasons. One is physiological where vocal chords are involved. Speech therapy is the remedy for that. Second is psychological issues. Stammering therapy should be a treatment option along with awareness and counseling. Take care.

I was used to drunk a lot. Now I want to give it up. Is this possible? Without any serious diseases? Please advice.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

It is good you have decided to stop your drinking. I am assuming that you have ‘Hit Rock Bottom’, which is the worst state for you with the habit. If that is the case, you are absolutely ready and will do well with the recovery. If you feel you need to be admitted so that it is easier, then you have two options: to go to a hospital and do a detoxification for between 10 to 14 days; and to check in into a rehabilitation center and live there for 3 to six months. In the former they will remove all the chemicals and its toxins from your body which will decrease the physical craving for alcohol. In the latter, it is more comprehensive, where the physical craving and the psychological craving will both be addressed and the initial treatment from all aspects will be taken care of. After that you would still need to attend therapy and finish the course, which can be up to 3 complete years. You must also frequent the AA (Alcoholic Anonymous) meetings that have known to offer the best support system for alcoholics collectively, in the same predicament. There will also be some family therapy to prepare them to deal with their own issues and as well as how to support you. You will need to make a personal transformation and change some of your habits and friends associated with the habit. You will learn to handle your feelings, money, social life, personal life, family responsibilities, find non-alcoholic ways to find fun, learn normal ways to enjoy yourself and have a structured way for follow up. You will indeed learn a lot and come out successful. If you wish to do the same with an addiction counselor, then you need to be very determined and completely cooperative to make any progress. It is difficult but not impossible, and the daily routine has to be carefully planned and followed to make any success out of it.

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. 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.

Hi to start with practice Mindful Breathing The primary goal of mindful breathing is simply a calm, nonjudging awareness, allowing thoughts and feelings to come and go without getting caught up in them. Sit comfortably, with your eyes closed and your spine reasonably straight. Bring your attention to your breathing. Imagine that you have a balloon in your tummy. Every time you breathe in, the balloon inflates. Each time you breathe out, the balloon deflates. Notice the sensations in your abdomen as the balloon inflates and deflates. Your abdomen rising with the in-breath, and falling with the out-breath. Thoughts will come into your mind, and that’s okay, because that’s just what the human mind does. Simply notice those thoughts, then bring your attention back to your breathing. Likewise, you can notice sounds, physical feelings, and emotions, and again, just bring your attention back to your breathing. You don’t have to follow those thoughts or feelings, don’t judge yourself for having them, or analyse them in any way. It’s okay for the thoughts to be there. Just notice those thoughts, and let them drift on by, bringing your attention back to your breathing. Whenever you notice that your attention has drifted off and is becoming caught up in thoughts or feelings, simply note that the attention has drifted, and then gently bring the attention back to your breathing. It's okay and natural for thoughts to enter into your awareness, and for your attention to follow them. No matter how many times this happens, just keep bringing your attention back to your breathing.

My husband is noise sensitive. Hebe comes mad if there is any noise. Is it an ENT problem. He also has a lot of anxiety.
Good Morning ~ Phonosensitivity is not uncommon and the reason for irritability and anger in some people. It can also precipitate headaches and seizures in some people. I believe that you need to have you husband consult a neuropsychiatrist if you believe that he has been having it for a long time or has been detected recently due to an increase in the noise levels where you stay. It is a highly treatable condition, however I would need more information and your husband needs to be evaluated more thoroughly.

Stammering is a learned behavior, ask him to be confident and speak slow. Speech therapy will be of greater help. Ask him to consult a speech therapist.

Theses are symptoms of piled up stress that hasn't been addressed. You seem to have bottled up your anger for too long and now it's beyond your limits and just Get angry with people. You need to do stress and anger management, learn safer ways to express your anger and be assertive. You can meet a counselling psychologist in your city who can help you with this. You can contact me on private chat too.
