Uncanny fear grips me at best of times, some occasional sleeplessness exists, Parents left longing for a united family life, before I could settle myself I'm 70 yrs+, had led a reasonably stable professional life of a middle class british educated engineer. Two PhD holder sons are on their way to their professional tracks. Wife's devoted to stability of my health and everybody else but talks (nags mostly) unnecessarily. Am presently working with a MNC on a serious national (make in India) project. Usual work stresses are there but increasingly getting the better of my fears of failures. How do I stabilise myself for my growing family and may be for the benefits my project may bring to the nation.

Well, you are reasonably healthy for your age with nothing serious affecting someone at your age! In the light of your age, and a nagging wife, I suspect that the magnitude of the project you have undertaken may have its pressures, unbeknown to you. One thing is for sure, as you age, your defense mechanisms will wane in strength and some of them may even fail you, then the enormity of common pressures may be high and seem unduly so too. These may be things that you handled in your hey days with pomp but suddenly find yourself fearing the job at hand because of lowered defense mechanisms. If you objectively examine yourself, you will most likely find that these fears are unjustified, and that your knowledge-base is very sound. Knowledge is power, but not so effective, if your previous coping skills are suspect. I don?t know if you have additionally taken a break from work life and returned after a long sabbatical. This can take a toll too. What can be done is really of import right now. I know you are healthy but you may not be adequately fit! I suggest that you do regular exercise, as age and medical advice permits. Do some Yoga and meditation, regularly. Spend some time dealing with your emotions with a counselor. Eat well, sleep is definitely recommended on a priority basis, and share a lot of your work responsibility with some colleagues. You could, in fact, indent for extra hands to facilitate proper outcomes. It is not a sign of weakness but a very sensible thing to do, especially when someone with your knowhow is there but needs the vitality of a young generation to do the actual execution. I figure the management will understand that, if they are of the right caliber. One thing that definitely will help is to focus less on yourself and more on the nation at large and thus broaden your perspective.

I am 19 years old boy and I have a lot of problem in my memory can't remember things. And I need some trick how can I increase my memory power.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
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 is a new exercise called Super Brain Yoga, which is done by holding the right earlobe with your left thumb and index finger, and the left earlobe with your right hand’s thumb and index finger. In this position, you must squat down and rise up and do this for five minutes every day. There is 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. Blueberries, walnuts, turmeric, Spinach, tomatoes, broccoli, acorn squash, green tea, oily fish, boiled egg, turkey, apples, oatmeal, leafy greens, lentils, pumpkin seeds, avocado, cinnamon, thyme, sunflower seeds, and red wine. Avoid sugar and junk food.

Dear Vidhyasagar, Welcome to lybrate. At your age, Memory problems like amnesia, dementia or Alzheimer's are not common. Many young people do complain having problems with memory. These problems are due to either they are too busy or due to anxiety and stress. Busy people use organizers or employ a personal assistant because they can't remember every task. You need to understand this. If you still say, you are having memory problems, we need to check your memory using memory test. You may contact a clinical psychologist or neurologist for memory test and further investigation. Take care.

My sister 51 years suffering from an acute situation. Few months back she was identified with esophageal varices and beginning of ulcer. Doctor told me that the cause of the ulcer is coming from her head and it is nothing but her tensions. She is a primary school teacher and got transferred to a new school. What she says that she cannot adjust with the new environment, teaching in english medium, students are not obeying her, cannot take class, cannot value papers, cannot prepare food, cannot dress up properly. Now she is saying that she cannot even prepare rice or tea. E feel a special appearance, do not eat well, getting worser every day. Every time crying without tears. Spent hours in kitchen and come back without doing anything. Our elder sister died due to ovarian cancer 1 years back. Her husband and 3 sons are so frustrated and saying her that go and commit suicide if she cannot do anything. She has his own convictions and when we ask her to consult a doctor she says doctors cannot do anything. They cannot cure. Now she is afraid of doing anything and simply spending time and complaining that she cannot do anything. How can we diagnose the situation.

Your sister has been undergoing stress disorder which if not checked earlier would lead to psychiatric conditions like anxiety neurosis, depression etc., The first thing I would like to suggest is to withdraw from her job role for a particular period of time. Medical leave for a month or two will be enough. This will give her a relaxation from the overwhelming fear/tension/stress. The second thing is to take her to a psychological counselor who can teach her some relaxation techniques and use some couseling techniques to gradually reduce her irrational fears and other psychological issues and adjustment problems. The most impartant part is that her husband and children are in need of counselling in order to give her emotional support to overcome her problems soon. Find a psychological counsellor asap. Certainly there is a way out.

My brother suffering from schizophernia since last 20 yrs. We take medicine from Doctor in ranchi

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Schizophrenia is a debilitating disease, if neglected by the functional people around, and if the person is allowed to do whatever he feels like doing. Quickly get him for therapy (it will be a long-term exercise) and have him put on a tight time-schedule of activities and functions. If you support and are firm with him, much work and action can be gotten out of him. He will become dysfunctional and passive, day by day. If left alone, he will internalize his thoughts, which could only be highly distorted, and this could worsen his condition. He should be active enough to support the work of the psychotropic drugs, and develop some coping skills with the counseling. He is still young and I believe with a lot of scope to at least become a productive member of society. Further neglect of this state of affairs will make him a life-time burden to whoever is left to guardian him. If you are the older brother, you could possibly make him do things to support becoming functional. He needs a firm hand and some force to have him comply with the therapist? s expectations. He must be kept occupied and productive every day.

Dear lybrate-user, I suggest that you undergo a premarital counselling. Marriage is a very important decision in life but unfortunately no one tells us how to prepare for it. Premarital counseling with a Psychologist helps in the same. You can freely discuss your issues there. Take care.

I am ca student. I am 23 years old. From the last 2-3 years, I have noticed a great decline in memory, which is creating problems in my daily life. I used to forgot little things from childhood itself but that didn't use to bother me. Now this is making me feel inferior. Another issue is that it takes me a little more time to recall things (like when someone asks me something, it takes a second or two to reply). What could be the problem with me & any possible solution?

I think I have a clear idea of what is bothering you, and I hope I am right to the ‘T’. I don’t think you have completely worked on the problem of addiction. In fact the reason you are not working out with your wife has to do with a lot of unresolved issues pertaining to the addiction. You see mere abstinence from alcohol is not enough: there are so many matters to be considered before you can seriously say and claim that you are no longer an addict. Now I am aware that according to AA principles, ‘Once you are an addict, you are always an addict’. I come from a different school of thought about that but let me not elaborate about that here. There are four important areas you need to definitely resolve the addiction problem: the Oral issue, the Genetic issue, the Rigid Value System, and the Script issue. Apart from that there is an addict personality that has to be made whole and many unhealthy adaptations have to be resolved. You and your wife, for example, married when you had that personality and she has now become fed up and wants out. If you have not changed that personality, you are literally asking her to live with you with the only change being that you have abstained from the alcohol! Although that is in itself a huge change, your basic personality has not changed. Apart from that it seems like there are emotional matters that are bothering you still and these could become impediments to yourself, let alone another person, like your wife! I suggest that you go back to addiction therapy and discuss these matters for a start and take it forward from there. I believe that if this is done well, you can regain your life all over again.

Earlier he was doing job in a well reputed MNC but last year he resigned because he want only to focus on his study, but from the last 6 7 months he was very much depressed and full of stress, tension and negativity. Because of this he feel weakness and not able to concentrate in his study, not able to sleep. Can you please help me. Is he in depression? or its normal.

He is stressed but not yet depressed. However if he neglects himself he may become depressed. The IAS can be quite a taxing exam and he may be losing confidence and is therefore becoming very stressed. He needs to meet with a counselor without delay. If it is fear then that person will certainly be able to help him handle it appropriately and come out of his distress. He would anyway need to follow a regular exercise regimen, eat healthily, and sleep well. These three are essential for a normal person and more so for him facing a tough exam. If he is too unprepared for the exams and that is the reason for the stress, advise him to defer the exam to next year and get more organized in his preparation. He may be determined to do it this year but if the circumstances are tough, it is advisable to do it the following year. In fact he could have a whole year for preparation. If he is still determined, he needs counseling very badly.

If I married a girl she is one year elder to me what and all the problem will come in my life?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
There will be no problem other than the normal difficulties that other couples will face. Obviously there must be a lot of love, good compatibility and of course both of you must be very good with adjustability. It is ideal to have a three to five year difference between the boy and the girl, with the girl being younger. But if it is not so, it does not mean it is bad. The demand on adjustability will be greater So if you are made for each other, go for it.

Urine urgency and severe constipation. Taking medication for depression paroxetine.

MBBS, DPM
Psychiatrist, Bangalore
Urine urgency and severe constipation. Taking medication for depression paroxetine.
Dear Naseem, Mild constipation may occur with paroxetine because, usually it decreases appetite and you tend to eat less. My patients have not reported severe constipation so far due to paroxetine. Mld one can be treated with more liquid intake, more fiber in diet or isabgol. Urine urgency may not be due to paroxetine. i feel it is due to anxiety associated with depression. Severe constipation also may be due to depression itself. Please consult your doctor again and she/he may increase the dose of paroxetine or add another antidepressant or anxiolytic. All the best.

Hi lybrate-user! Do you want to help him or you want him to undergo treatment for the same. Okay whatever it is he should volunteer to undergo treatment for the same. If he is hesitant then you can definitely help him overcome this problem completely. First I need to know from when and what is the cause was it love failure or someone close to him accordingly only I can assist you to help him anyway, my suggestion is try to divert his attention into something crazy like depends on his interests otherwise. Let him to cry and let him scold. Console him a lot. Talk positive to him always. If you need further assistance feel free to contact me either through text chat or call me. Take care of you as well as your friend. Try to be supportive.

Since you showed considerable improvement with above medications it is advisable that you donot alter doses or stop or skip medications at your wish. Consult your treating physician or me online for a gradual reduction in number and doses of medications. This would ensure continued improvement and reduce chances of relapse in future.
