Dear Lybrate user. Overthinking is due to excess time and lack of engagement. Engage yourself in several activities which interests you. Your over thinking will stop. Getting attached is not a problem. You should do so and get experienced. Take care.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. Intelligence is experience and knowledge. The more you read the more intelligent you are. Don't confuse yourself. You can also achieve anything. Have high aspirations and try hard to achieve those aspirations. Nothing can stop uou except your attitude. Keep a positive attitude. I suggest online educational counselling. Take care.

You cannot reduce emotions. I guess you may be thinking of ways to avoid them: that also is not possible in any healthy way. You have to face your feelings and learn to express them in appropriate ways. All feelings are good. They are a very important aspect of the human personality. Most people have a problem in expressing emotions. Some, like you, want to avoid them. If people use denial, they may not experience the emotion but the unconscious mind is continuously registering the feeling and it moves it to an organ (which may differ from person to person), and that unexpressed feeling will stress that organ to either make it malfunction or lead to its total dysfunction. This is the psychosomatic effect that sometimes entails a whole lot of medical interventions and hospitalizations. Why do all that! just deal with your feelings by expressing them, as soon as possible, and always.

You seem to be suffering from Borderline Personality or Emotionally unstable personality. The cause is unknown but research suggests there is an interaction between adverse life events and genetic factors. Neurobiological research suggests that abnormalities in the frontolimbic networks are associated with many of the symptoms There is a pattern of sometimes rapid fluctuation from periods of confidence to despair, with fear of abandonment and rejection. There is a particularly strong tendency towards suicidal thinking and self-harm. Transient psychotic symptoms, including brief delusions and hallucinations, may also be present. It is also associated with substantial impairment of social, psychological and occupational functioning and quality of life. People with emotionally unstable personality disorder are particularly at risk of suicide. Its course is variable and, although many people recover over time. Kindly consult a psychiatrist for remedy.

I am 21 years old. I was using marijuana for 4 months followed by alcohol. I also smoke 3 cigggrates per day. From d last time I consumed bhang. I m feeling anxiety on a continuous run. What should I do then?

It is very obvious; you must give up the smoking of all these substances. They are causing you this anxiety, although there may be other hidden factors that may favor the addiction. Marijuana has varied findings and claims, many of which are dubious, and some for medicinal uses that are authentic. But each person reacts differently to these substances and you definitely sound like someone who is not reacting well. These drugs can precipitate underlying anxiety, quite innocuously. Talk to a counselor and find out if you had any preconditions to anxiety and deal with it. Anyway you must continue with counseling in parallel with the medication. In the meantime, you must go on a regular exercise program, eat well and sleep well. A personality course will certainly help. Do yoga and meditation too. If the addiction is in any way covering up some deep-rooted pain, you need to work on that and clear that out of your system. I hope you are aware that people who are addicted are often spiritually bankrupt. It would be wise for you to touch base with your faith and turn to some spiritual exercises to reform your path on the right track. I am sure it will help. Do not delay any action by denial: a typical reaction of all addicts. It comes in the form of over-confidence, some arrogance, and denying the existence of any problem.

Dear lybrate-user, your history of being depressed and in rehab home for few years suggest that your problems are more than insomnia. Insomnia itself may be due to depression or other conditions. It is better to treat you as a whole person rather than prescribing a sleeping pill.

I am sorry that your father abandoned you and mom in childhood. This is certainly having a great impact on you. Your anger towards your father is causing you too much distress and I suggest that you speak to a counselor and purge it out of your system, and soon too. As a result of your father?s absence, you and your mother have been stuck in a symbiosis, where you are unable to see her love someone else. Naturally you thought she was all there for you alone but you now find that she is devoting her time and love to another. Here again it will help to talk to a counselor to handle this intolerance you have developed. It seems that mom has fulfilled her duty towards you and feels like she can move on with her life. You must look at her with empathy. If you cannot tolerate her meeting her needs, you can imagine how much of a sacrifice she has made living without love herself and devoting all these years exclusively for your education and well being! You have to break out of the symbiosis and grow up to be your own man. If you truly love your mom, you must encourage her to live her life now that she has shaped yours. Because you are stuck in the symbiosis in an unhealthy manner, you feel like you are not able to break the apron strings and move on with your life. But move on you must. Mom sacrificed to give you life but you do not seem to appreciate that and cannot even seem to want to live. You need to get on with your life and will understand all this better, if and when you get into another relationship yourself: now that is something I suggest you explore. It will open your eyes to other people?s needs and thereby you will have an understanding of your mom. Life is very precious and you are too. Be a man and go conquer the world. Life has just begun for you but you may end up a quitter, if you do not live a life of your own and in a most fruitful way. A counselor will certainly help you in many ways to reach your milestones in life and grow in maturity soon.

Dear, many people become forgetful as they become older. This is common and is often not due to dementia. There are also other disorders such as depression and an underactive thyroid that can cause memory problems. Dementia is the most serious form of memory problem. It causes a loss of mental ability, and other symptoms. Dementia can be caused by various disorders which affect parts of the brain involved with thought processes. Most cases are caused by alzheimer's disease, vascular dementia, or dementia with lewy bodies. Symptoms of dementia develop gradually and typically become worse over a number of years. The most important part of treatment for dementia is good-quality support and care for the person with dementia and for their carers. In some cases, treatment with medicines may be helpful. Please consult a physician first.

She is probably overwhelmed with suppressed emotions. Probably she has been very submissive in her early childhood and adulthood. May be, she could never express her feelings. Now she is not able to bear it any more. Hence she has" displaced" anger - means taking out anger on someone else. You need to check if she has any family history of mental disorders. Please try to talk to her. When she is in good mood ask her what is making her so angry, try to understand her feelings behind the anger. If she is willing, take her to a counsellor/psychologist, who will assess her and can suggest future course of action.

Dear, You must be able to understand Concentration, attention span, recollection and distraction. If you are able to watch a movie for two hours continuously, if you are able to play a game for an hour, then you do not have any concentration problems. You can't be attentive towards your studies because you are not interested in it. You are able to watch movie and play game because you are interested in it. Human cannot be attentive towards anything for more than 10 minutes. Then you should study in such a way that your attention is continued and make the subjects are interesting to you. Effective learning techniques should help you. Recollection depends on anxiety, stress and other physical and circumstantial factors. Distractions while studying are plentiful. You should be able to overcome distractions or avoid distractions. Please understand the above. Change your study style and attitude accordingly. Please post a private question to me and I will help you with "effective learning" techniques. Take care.

Always some negative thoughts come to mind and I am suffering from depressions. How to get rid of this problem?
when we have these negative thoughts, most of the time it is associate with some fear or loss, it may be associated with something which happend in your life. When our mind is hooked into past it is normal to have lot of negative thoughts and in turn feeling low. The good news is that our mind could be wired to switch back to positive things and resilience building. We have immense potential within us and we could tap into those one step at a time, one day at a time. When things does not happen as we wish or people do not behave as we expect that is when out of disappointment, frustration, loneliness, anger, sadness. Etc we react and our mind starts thinking negative thoughts. Changing this pattern of responding to stressful situation requires both persistence and patience. Also you will only be able to work on this out of love and kindness towards you. Strong motivation will go a long way. Writing a statement about how would you want to respond in a similar situation and how will your life and your happiness will change if you do learn to manage your stress and how to respond to it. Once that is clear. Try following things to learn relaxation response which leads to better coping mechanism on a daily basis. To begin with doing guided progressive muscular relaxation before sleeping will help you relax. You could google and download an audio file. I would also suggest you to take a multiple small break to take 3 nice and deep breath while keeping your eyes closed. You could do this while sitting or standing or while even walking or climbing stairs (keep your eyes open in that case). When you take a nice and deep break there is actual physiological change in your body. This will help you to activate parasympathetic nervous system which promotes relaxation and helps you calm down and think more clearly. This will also actually improve your performance in your work. Along with this exercise is one of the best way to relive stress and stay fit. Engage in any kind of physical activity at least 4 times a week. This also helps in stress reduction. Along with this some relaxation exercises as well as engaging in joyful activities such as music, singing, dancing, reading, being in nature, gardening, talking with friends or anything which you enjoy will help reducing stress and rejuvenation of your mind and body. Have good routine for sleep and eating. Lot of research has now proven that sugar is very harmful for our health. Reduce sugar and refined white floor in your diet as much as you could. Along with this also increase consumption of raw vegetables in the form of salad in both the meals of your day. Let me. Know if you need any further help. Hope this helps wishing you very best.
