She always fell sick before exam. I think that she has Exam anxiety. please guide for proper treatment.
To rule out it is anxiety or she really has some genuine complaints you need to take professional help. Some times extreme anxiety and stress can cause physical discomforts. Our emotions speak through our body. Talking yo a doctor and then taking session with psychologist will help her develop coping skills. In the process of counselling the therapist will help her with relaxation techniques, study skills. Deep rooted reasons behind this external behaviour is also need be discussed. Best luck. Help is just one call away.

Separation Anxiety In Kids - 5 Ways To Deal With It!

Separation Anxiety In Kids - 5 Ways To Deal With It!

It is absolutely natural for your little ones to be anxious when you are separating from them. Though it can be difficult, but separation anxiety is one of the stages of development. It is supposed to fade away gradually by practicing some coping strategies. In case it intensifies and starts to interrupt with normal, daily activities, your child may have a separation anxiety disorder.

  1. Teach your child about separation anxiety: Regardless of the type of problem your child is struggling with, it is important for him or her to understand several things about anxiety. You should explain that anxiety is an adaptive system that signals the body that we are in danger. But it becomes a grave problem when the body tells that there is a danger even when there is no real danger. You should try to help your child identify his or her feelings and thoughts that he or she comes across when separating from you.
  2. Encourage your child not to seek help: Those kids who deal with separation anxiety seek excessive assurance from their parents. They keep on asking different questions in order to be cent percent sure that nothing would happen to them or their parents after they separate. You should tell your child that it is anxiety speaking for them and you can even make a plan with your child to beat anxiety.
  3. Create your child’s toolbox: One of the best ways to assist your child in dealing with separation anxiety is to create a toolbox for him or her that can be utilized if he feels scared. You should teach him or her to relax through calm breathing and relaxing his or her muscles.
  4. Teach your child to think realistically: Often it is found that kids with separation anxiety have thoughts that are quite unrealistic, but they don’t realize this when they feel anxious. For instance, if you and your husband are coming home late, your child may feel that both of his parents have had an accident. You may help him cope with it through a plan that would aid your child to detect the unhelpful thoughts and develop new thoughts that are realistic and helpful.
  5. Build your child’s bravery: In order to overcome separation anxiety, your kid has to practice some skills every time he faces such a situation. It is quite like an exercise that has to be turned into a habit so that your child feels better and gradually improves until he reaches his goals. If you wish to discuss any specific problem, you can consult a psychologist.

I am suffering from chronic diarrhea for over a year now but this is not regular. Some doctors say it is IBS and some other disagree. I've tried to find mistakes in my diet but found out that it is not the cause. I found the levels of thinking and stress related with it. Please tell me what it is and how can I relieve from it.

Relation with level of thinking and stress, itself, indicates the possibility of ibs. Balanced life style with some physician or phychologist consultation would be sufficient.

I stay far away from office and it is going to be difficult for me to manage at night. Me and my husband are not able to plan our family. The company is asking for my confirmation immediately. I do not want to leave this job but I also care for my family. I am confused and going in depression.

You have to chose between family and job. Discuss with your husband and arrive at a decision. There is no right or wrong ones, it s basically one s priority. If you want to focus on job for few more years and then plan family, fine. If you want to set up family, foregoing job and later think about it, also fine. But if you make a decision with open talk with your husband, it would lead to no hard feelings and guilt later. All the best

I have low concentration when l am trying to study. What can I do? Please suggest me. Please give some tips and medicine.

General Physician,
Study Tips to Improve Your Learning Study Tip 1: Underlining Underlining is one of the simplest and best known study tips. It’s easy to highlight the most significant parts of what you’re reading. One key sentence per paragraph and a few important phrases here and there. You can only retain a certain amount so it’s best to retain the most important information. Study Tip 2: Make your own note and taking notes is one of the most widespread study skills out there. Essentially the aim of note-taking is to summarise lectures or articles in your own words so you can easily remember the ideas. Study Tip 3: Mind mapping A good Mind map can save you many hours of study and further consolidate your knowledge for your exams. Mind Maps are an extremely versatile tools. They can be used for brainstorming, outlining essays or study topics and for general exam preparation, ExamTime offers the ability to create Mind Maps quickly and easily which makes them the ideal tool when it comes to exams. Study Tip 4: Flash cards:- Using these are a particularly effective method of learning when trying to assimilate different facts, dates, formulas or vocabulary. Subjects such as History, Physics, Maths, Chemistry, Geography or any language are made much easier if you incorporate Flashcards in to your study. Study Tip 5: Case Studies Sometimes it can be difficult to grasp the implications of some theories. This is where studying case studies can be a big help. Case studies can help you visualise a theory and place it in a more familiar and realistic context. This is especially useful in business or law subjects. Study Tip 6: Quizzes are an excellent way to review study notes in the weeks and days before an exam. Quizzes can show where your strengths and weaknesses are, so it allows you to focus your efforts more precisely. Moreover, if you share your Study Quiz with your classmates and test each other as much as possible you can discover even more details and areas you may have overlooked. So before any exam, make sure you create and share a bunch of different Quizzes with your Friends. Study Tip 7: Brainstorming This is another study technique that is ideal for studying with friends and/or classmates. Brainstorming is a great way to expand every possible idea out of any topic. Just get a bunch of friends together and shoot the breeze, there are no wrong answers when brainstorming – just talk and capture the ideas, you can review afterward. Study Tip 8: Mnemonic Rules Mnemonics are especially useful when memorising lists and sets. Mnemonics rules basically work by associating certain concepts with other concepts that are more familiar to us. There are many different ways to make mnemonics and these can be individual to the person. Study Tip 9: ORGANISE your study One of the most effective study skills is also one of the most often overlooked; this is organising your study. Creating a TIME TABLE gives you goals and a time in which to achieve them. Having a study timetable as you study is greatly motivational Study Tip 10: Drawing Many people find it easier to recall images rather than text that is why they are better able to memorise concepts if they associate them with pictures or drawings.

Dear lybrate-user, Depression, anxiety, acidity all go together as Mixed Anxiety Depressive Disorder. It will be treated by any psychiatrist with appropriate medicines and talk therapy. I would like to know your weight, BMI and abdominal girth. Your cholesterol and hiatus hernia may be related to them. You need to reduce your weight and eat frequent small meals.

I am 37 years old. Got married last year to a person who was divorced. He was even jailed due to his ill behaviour with his previous wife. However I was single but due to my age I had limited option. And he then showed me he was the best. However after marriage from day 1 he had been fighting a lot. Wants me to work and pay his dues. When I said I won't. Then he completely denied that he ever asked for that. I planned to have baby. As I felt may be due to his old mishaps he is such. But during all my pregnancy he kept fighting with me. I am staying with my parents since past one and a half year due to his fights. I asked him to go to psychiatrist as he fights a lot. He takes it negatively. And doesn't talk to me for many days. Kindly advise how can I take care of all these. I have a seven month old daughter as well. And due to all the fights my health has deteriorated and not able to still go for any work. And I can't even claim for a good earning now. After a long gap year.

Hello ,I can well understand what you seem to be going through. There is a lot of insecurity that you must be experiencing .As per the details shared by you it seems your husband has some aggression issues hat need to be addressed. As this has been a kind of life style so he seems to be caught in the web .Talk to him patiently and ask him to state all his problems. Give him support that together you both can confront them. Make a list of the worries that trouble him and take actions step by step as a team, to handle them .Win his trust to enjoy a life long companionship. Certainly, constant problems can be a major reason for losing ones cool .So relax ,act and don't react to the circumstances. Surely you both can sail together with each other's support.

Dear Lybrate user. I can understand. Cigarette contains more than 4000 chemicals which can cause many physical and mental problems. Nicotine is addictive and causes addiction. Smoking can cause cancer and other physical problems. The best method to quit smoking is to use your will power and sustain it with your will power. There are other methods like deaddiction therapy. Deaddiction therapy can be a success only when you have the will power. I suggest online counseling and deaddiction therapy. Take care.
