I have stammering problem from class 3 onwards and I me and parents had consulted many doctors but still now I am not getting well from my stammering problem. Soo please help me.

Stammering is typically recognised by a tense struggle to get words out. This makes it different from the normal non-fluency we all experience which includes hesitations and repetitions. Commonly it involves repeating or prolonging sounds or words, or getting stuck without any sound (silent blocking). Sometimes people put in extra sounds or words. Often people lose eye contact. Some people who stammer talk their way round difficult words so that you may not realise they stammer at all. This avoidance of words, and avoidance of speaking in some or many situations, is an important aspect of stammering. Stammering varies tremendously from person to person and is highly variable for the person who stammers who may be fluent one minute and struggling to speak the next. Get an mri brain and eeg with a psychiatrist evaluation.

I have very angry lately.Every thing seems to irritate me as a result i either shout out loud on my close ones or cry for days at a stretch. I know its a problem, but how can i help myself?

You are probably carrying loads of anger from your past and as it cannot be contained any more it is coming out in outbursts. Find out what that anger is, why it was there for so long, and why you did not have permission to express it all this while. Anger in particular cannot remain suppressed for too long ? it is a pure energy feeling and wants to come out by force sooner or later. When your defenses are weakened, it will come out uncontrollably like you describe. You must attend some anger management classes. Do some Yoga meditation. Vigorous exercise will purge the energy of anger out of your system. Meet a counselor to discuss your anger and to express it too. Expressing can be done by talking, writing and sharing it, by shouting in a contracted situation etc. Weeping when you are angry is a feeling substitution and may be a sign of regret too. These outbursts of anger may soon embarrass you, if you don?t attend to it now. You can also pray and hand over the anger to God, if you are spiritual.

You lead your life very systematically. When your son is in us then you feel depression. Now he is very near to you. So no need of any medicine. If we stop medicine anything happen that is your fear. It has no reason. When we feel happy. It is better to stop medicine. Spirituality is good now. If you have any fear regarding this. Better to attend psychological counselling sessions. They will tell to you. How to lead your present status. Your life style modification. It helps to you very much. It reduces depressive status. It has no side effects. So better to take the help of a very good psychologist. Be sociable and be friendly with your friends and family members. Feel always comfortable and happy it always helps to you very much. Ok all the best.

Dear lybrate-user. Welcome to lybrate. I can understand. Loosing someone near and dear is called grief and depression related to grief is pretty normal. But this sort of depression does not stay for long. This depression gets cleared within a span of some weeks. The best option for you is to undergo counseling and depression related therapy. Take care.

Because of your age you may have hormonal imbalances which may impact your memory because of the chemical but also the 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 31 years old female got married at the age of 24yrs. My husband is 3 yrs elder to me. He didn't do any job or business at the time of marriage also. Ours was a love cum arranged marriage. He said he wants to do only business and he will not do job at any cost. He was a chronic alcoholic and smoker and started to quit both. But he couldn't quit smoking but reduced it. For alcoholic problem he took treatment but there is a relapse for every 6months. Till nw he doesn't goes for a job and lives with his mom's pension support. He tried some business but didn't work well and lost huge amount of money like 30 lakhs. He is a spendthrift and sold all my jewelery and still roams to different places with money and friends saying he is looking for some business. I secretly came to know one day that he is running behind gambling business like rice pulling. He comes home rarely like once or twice in a month and stays for 2 or 3 days. I thought I can change him but lost everything even my hope. I don't even a penny in my hand. If I work only I can see some money. Right nw iam doing my PG supported by my brother. He puts sleeping pill nexito plus daily telling tat he has stress and Dr. told him to put it. I don't have a baby also. He is not interested in tat also. He simply believes superstitious things and blames time and God for everything. I have put fight lot many times and even went to my mom's house for 1 yr. Threatened him of divorce also. But no change. I don't know what to do. Pl give me some advice. Can he change and how can I do it or can I break his relationship. Thank you.

You have a husband who does not work, lost heavily in business, sold all your jewelry, comes home once in a while, takes sleeping pills, drinks every six months, smokes, has not helped to conceive a child, is blaming god and time for everything and I am sure there must be a host of other problems that you may not have listed!!! Under such circumstances what do you think is the choice you need to make?! I don’t think he will change because he is quite happy since he has a home, a dutiful wife, food and drinks when he wants, a regular pension, etc.!!! You have to make decision for your future and life. He is probably depressed and is not choosing to work on it or seek treatment. Under such circumstances there is no hope at all.

Regular exercise increases blood flow in the body, particularly to those organs involved in sex. In addition drinking a warm glass of milk containing a spoon of cow before going to bed will enhance your ejaculation and most effective green salad like tomato white onion cabbage collard greens use dark chocolate daily and use ayurvedic treatment see to proper sexologist doctor.

I am 21 and I have a boyfriend from college. We are very happy now. But something's from past gets in mind once in a while. My boyfriend has a girl best friend who is not too close to people. Last year my boyfriend went to a college tour. She got too close and cozy to him during it. He dint bother as he is always open to friends. When they returned I heard of them and got really angry with him. I thought she was emotionally close to him. But she also started to be physically close, holding hands while walking, sitting etc. And even talking of it. So after I heard of it and got angry he said it was not anything bad and he just allowed best friends as they should be. Later the month when that girl was more talking to another friend, my boyfriend got sad thinking that their friendship was fading. He got angry to her little .when she asked why, he said he didn't wanted to lose her best friendship and that he was possessive of her love and care she gave him. She convinced him that no one could take his place. He wanted her friendship back and they talked that way being emotional sent and all. When I told him to limit his friendship with her he said he wouldn't leave her friend as he is equally important to him as I am .I an his girl friend and she is his best friend. That hurted me to hear that he was too attached with his best friend . Later I got depressed and once I saw his chats with her during their friendship re union and all, I hated him .and got sad. He also got sad for making me sad. And said he didn't wanted to be selfish. His friends are friends. Nothing more. And he wanted them. Later due to my complaining he reduced his friendship. She also understood. Now we are hapy. But I thought I was mean even though I was hurt. So I told him he could be best friends again. He was happy to hear. I want to forget that memory of those days when they occur sometimes now. I want to forgive her and let her out of mind.

The past looms over us - especially the bad memories. No need to be guilty of being selfish - in all relationships, clear boundaries need to be laid down right from the beginning, so that there are no misunderstandings later on. So, what you did was absolutely right. As for the memories disturbing you, focus on where you want to take your relationship from here - it is always our choice what we want to remember from the past - if you remember the sweet memories they will grow bigger in your mind. To forgive her, all you have to do is relax, take a few deep breaths, close your eyes and while releasing your breath, say to yourself i'm free, I free you. And forgive her. The anger will only come back, if you think about that episode negatively, if you see it like any other incident, then it will not hurt you.

I am 18 years old. I am a college student and I stay in hostel. I cannot concentrate on my studies at all. I daydream a lot especially on the days before exams. Most of my dreams are about one particular fantasy. I find it difficult to wake up in the morning due to excessive dreaming. I am one of the toppers in my class. So I think it adds extra pressure to perform well in tests. But in today' s test I wrote nothing correctly(i will get 0 out of 30). What should I do to focus on the exams which are yet to come. I have 4 exams next week too. Is it due to exam stress or anything else? please give suggestions.

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. Take care.
