You could consult a speech therapist or make her read things like we use to do when we were kids. One alphabet at a time, then very small words, then small words and progress gradually. Don't stop talking to her as this will motivate her to speak. Thank you.

I'm having anxiety what pills should I take to reduce it
because of it I can't concentrate on my work. Pls help ASAP.
Hello dear. First of all instead of pills go for some therapies r meditation. Anxiety Buster #1: Start Deep-Breathing If you're not focused on how to calm your body through slow, intentional belly-breathing, you're missing out. Belly-breathing is free, location independent, and easy to implement. 1. Sit with your eyes closed and turn your attention to your breathing. Breathe naturally, preferably through the nostrils, without attempting to control your breath. 2. Be aware of the sensation of the breath as it enters and leaves the nostrils. Place one hand on your belly, and the other on your chest. Take a deep breath for a count of four. Hold your breath for a count of three. Exhale for a count of four. The hand on your belly should go in as you inhale, and move out as you exhale. 3. Concentrate on your breath and forget everything else. Your mind will be very busy, and you may even feel that the meditation is making your mind busier, but the reality is you're just becoming more aware of how busy your mind is. 4. Resist the temptation to follow the different thoughts as they arise, and focus on the sensation of the breath. If you discover that your mind has wandered and is following your thoughts, immediately return it to the breath. 5. Repeat this as many times as necessary until your mind settles on the breath. Don't wait to begin belly-breathing. The sooner you make this a daily habit, the quicker you'll feel relaxed. When you implement belly-breathing, you start the day in a here-and-now state. Better yet, you're not wasting time worrying about the future, or reliving the past. Anxiety Buster #2: Meditate instead of Medicate Calm is an inside job. Give yourself the gift of serenity and start the day with ten minutes of solitude and positive energy. Think calm, measured and open-minded, and your daily activities will correspond. Anxiety Buster #3: Practice Self-Care Get a massage, a mani-pedi, or a haircut. Nothing says polished and well-maintained like a sexy, healthy glow. If money is tight, look for a discount salon or a training school which offers quality services for people on a budget. So they don't serve peppermint tea on a silver tray -- close your eyes and imagine that five-star service while you take in the pampering you deserve. Anxiety Buster #4: Eliminate Soda That morning jolt of joe can jumpstart your day and provide warmth and comfort, but anything with high fructose corn syrup and 177 other ingredients will not. If you're accustomed to that 3: 00 p.m. Dr. Pepper, switch it out for a soothing green tea. Not only does the caffeine jack up your central nervous system, soda depletes vitamins and minerals from your diet and wreaks havoc on your smile. Teeth become susceptible to cavities when the acid level of your saliva falls below a certain point. If you drink soda all day, the outer layers of your teeth begin to lose minerals and cavities form. Many dental plans do not cover root canals + you'll end with a huge bill. Speaking of which: Anxiety Buster #5: Trim the Fat from Your Budget Financial stress is a common reason people contact me for psychotherapy. Debt will keep you up at night and contribute to feelings of low self-worth and hopelessness. Take charge of your finances and stop spending on non-essentials. Track your daily expenses for a week or two and decide where you can cut back. Notice the items you accumulate mindlessly. Possible eliminators: Switch out your cable TV for Netflix Contact your car insurance carrier, your mobile device company, or your credit card company and ask if they'll reduce your bill Cancel your newspaper delivery during the week and opt for the Sunday paper, or an online service, instead Anxiety Buster #6: Get Rid of the Clutter Do you ever wonder how much time is lost when you can't find your car keys, or that package of Epson 400 color ink? Chances are you've got too much stuff clogging up your living space. Try this quick organization hack: 1. Choose a drawer, cabinet or closet 2. Categorize the stuff you don't use 3. Make three piles for a) Items to throw away, b) Items to donate, and c) Items to sell Hold a yard sale and use the money to. Anxiety Buster #7: Plan a Day Trip When you spend time in nature, you give your mind and body a much needed break from the hustle and bustle which causes you to Google things like "How to get rid of anxiety" in the first place. Chances are no matter where you live, there's a serene, interesting and charming place within a couple hours. Anxiety Buster #8: Go to Bed Early This may sound impossible if you're accustomed to staying up late to catch up on the To-Do list. But this one's a MUST. Sleep deprivation is a huge anxiety culprit. Inadequate shuteye can amplify the brain's anticipatory reactions, upping overall anxiety levels, according to research. "We all have anticipatory anxiety, explains researcher Fugen Neziroglu. "Having moderate levels of anxiety about doing well is important. But it can be destructive when it begins to interfere with your life. It's impossible to have healthy emotional functioning without adequate sleep. Don't burn the midnight oil in hopes of catching up on the weekends. Unused sleep minutes don't roll over. Anxiety Buster #9 Wake up 15 Minutes Early Like most anxious people, you're probably rushing around in the morning and yelling at everyone in your wake, "Hurry up! We're going to be late! Go slowly, and set yourself up for a relaxed day ahead. If you start to worry about the To-Do list, take a deep breath and think, There is enough time. Anxiety Buster #10: Get Your Lavender On! Lavender oil has many healing properties and can be used as a natural remedy to reduce anxiety and other nervous conditions. There are many ways to incorporate lavender into your calm tool kit: 1. Add essential lavender oil to your bath water for a calming bath. Use water infused with lavender leaves to soothe painful joints and muscles. 2. Fall asleep quicker when you add a few drops to a tissue and place under your pillow. 3. Use lavender in an oil diffuser to help with insomnia. The sweet woody smell of the lavender oil helps you to fall asleep and stay asleep. 4. For headaches, apply lavender oil to a cotton ball or your fingertips and massage slowly into your temples. The smell will relax you as the oil eases your headache. 5. Lavender is used in aromatherapy massage as a muscle relaxant. Massage the oil into the skin and unknot the muscles of the back and reduce spasms. 6. Lavender can be used as an expectorant. It breaks up the mucous from nasal and chest congestion that accompanies a cold. 7. Inhale lavender oil to help with pain management, especially after a workout, a therapy session, or surgery. Anxiety Buster #11: Reduce Caffeine, Sugar and Processed Foods From Your Diet Caffeine can cause heart palpitations if you ingest too much. Caffeine also can trigger panic or anxiety attacks, especially if you have an anxiety disorder. Hypoglycemia, or low blood sugar, can also cause palpitations. Sugar acts as an adrenal stimulant and can cause anxiety or even panic attacks. Other offensive foods include those containing refined flour products, and even wheat since this causes inflammation. Besides caffeine, and sugar, food allergies are a big contributing factor in your overactive central nervous system. Do this step along with #12. Anxiety Buster #12: Go Green! Diet affects anxiety. A morning glass of green juice can get you on the right side of calm. For a different and delicious way to get your daily vegetables try this recipe: Combine one banana or green apple, a bunch of kale, sliced ginger, one lime, cucumber slices, a few ice cubes, and a cup of water to a blender or juicer. For added protein, add an egg, yogurt, nuts, or protein powder.

When I speak in front of audience I stammer, but when I personally converse with people I speak fluently. Is it due to fear of audience that exists inside me? I even read the newspaper loudly everyday. Will that help me solve my problem?

Reading the newspaper loudly does help with the stammering but not with regard public speaking and its fears. This is the number one fear of all people. Even the most successful speakers admit to this problem. In fact the first 90 seconds are most frightening. The heart beat races to doubles the normal: 144 times a minute. So you are advised to prepare a good opening sentence to launch you off to a good start. The fear is generally centered around rejection: am I good enough? Will people like me? Will people know more than me? Etc. A host of self-conscious comparisons that only make you feel inferior. When the whole world is in the same boat, take heart and learn some basic techniques to overcome this stage fright. Join a Toastmasters club in your town and develop your public speaking skills and experience. Also remember some little rules: look for some pleasant face in the audience, look over the audience, prepare yourself well, talk simply, understand that you can only talk on what you know not on some grand made-up design of yours, there are always others who are better than you, pray before you speak, and so on. Focus on the three areas of public speaking according to their importance: Presentation and appearance (20%), audience (30%), and content (50%). You probably have fear from childhood that has not been resolved and is tending to find an outlet in your mouth to make it stammer. You could meet with a counselor to settle this matter. There are a lot more points but space constraints do not permit me to be more elaborate.

I can imagine how difficult life has been for you. I hope you are under medical care. Along with medicines, it will be very helpful for you to be under psychotherapy. The therapist will help you to understand why you are finding it difficult to trust other people and what is your perception about self and others. With a few modifications in behaviour and thinking patterns you would be able to cope up better.

The problem is kinda complicated and I shall try my best to explain in as simple a manner as possible. So basically there is this girl I really love and we have been talking to each other since about 3 weeks. I know 3 weeks sounds like a less time but in this time frame we have shared quite a lot about each other. Even the things that 2 opposite sex friends would not normally share with each other like family past, sexual/masturbation tendencies, about our ex girlfriends/boyfriends etc. Like we both are open minded enough to discuss these things really normally. After like 2 weeks, I confessed to her that I love her and she just told me to wait due to her recent breakup and other trust issues with regards to relationships such as being commitment phobic as she claims to be sometimes. But at the same time she tells me not to loose contact with her at any point of time and maybe after sometime she might say yes. At times she also flirts with me calling me cute and all and she dosen't mind me flirting with her as well. She would not even mind getting drunk with me at my house even though she has not done with any other guy. Not even with her exes. Now comes my question. I tend to contemplate that all these chain of events that took place between us is a sign of the fact that she probably likes me as well. However its kind of making me mad as to why is she stalling this whole thing so much despite of such good bonding between us. Is she playing games with me? Does she has any plans to screw around with me as if i'm just a time pass? Would we ever fall into a committed relationship? I really do not know whats going on here. And on top of that I get confused hearing my friends say that I am not taking the right approach with her. They suggest me tactics like unusual questions and ego games in order to make her like me. But I never wanna do these things to get her. I just wanna be myself. The truthful honest self. So please give some advice here as to how to go about it and how to tackle the anxieties and depression that come forth when I am missing her when she is busy. Thank you so much for reading till here.

Hello, thank you for elaborating your case here. I would like to advice you to be yourself althrough the way. As you are since for two people to stay together for long, staying like oneself is indeed crucial. For the matter that though you feel she likes you but is not telling you 'yes' for your proposal, I would like to tell you that its perfectly normal at this juncture for her when she just had a rusty ride with her ex. Just give her some time to revive all that she had with her ex. She is now also in a tumultous phase of her life and shr has found you who has lend her a soothing shoulder. To caress her. My last words would be. Give your relationship some time. Concentrate on your studies. Let your relationship with her follow its usual course. Regards.

Technique #1: Play brain games Puzzles like Sudoku and crosswords may improve memory and delay brain decline, though experts are not yet sure why. Technique #2: Eat the right foods According to Gary Small, MD, director of the UCLA Memory Clinic, memory super foods include antioxidant-rich, colorful fruits and vegetables, which protect your brain from harmful free radicals. He's also enthusiastic about low-glycemic carbs, like oatmeal, and anything with omega-3 fatty acids. Technique #3: Quit multitasking "One reason people can't remember where their keys are is they're not paying attention when they put them down," Technique #4: Master a new skill A recent Swedish study found that adults who learned a new language showed improved memory for people's names, among other things. Any activity that is practiced diligently, such as knitting or skiing, will likely have this effect, Technique #4: Master a new skill Technique #5: Get more sleep Researchers at the University of Pennsylvania have discovered that losing half a night's rest?three or four hours?on just one evening can erode memory Technique #6: Use mnemonic devices These are basically memory tools that give meaning and organization to a random group of words or concepts. They could be an acronym (BOG for "Buy oranges and grapes"), an exaggerated visualization (imagining a massive stethoscope to remember a doctor's appointment) or a rhyme (to recall a co-worker's name, I'd remember, "Ted has a giant forehead"). Memory champions also love chunking, or breaking a large amount of information into more manageable nuggets. Technique #7: Hit the gym Researchers from the University of California at Irvine recently discovered that a little exercise might yield big mental benefits You can ask me privately for more help.

Have you had this fear before, especially during your late adolescence? If that is the case it may have some earlier origins, due to some trauma in your life. Even so, you can do several things to combat it and live a normal life and career: talk to a counselor regularly and see what you identify as its source and its modus operandi in your life. Do regular and vigorous exercise daily. Sleep well and eat well too. Attend some emotional management course with a professional. Take some multivitamins with some calcium tablets, the combination will de-stress you. Reduce the pressure in your life both at home and at work. Life is full of difficulties. Those who are good at responding to it by discipline will overcome the challenges that life poses.

Feeling depressed and lost. Please help.
You must meet with a counselor first and if that person advises that you meet with a doctor too, please do so immediately. You must investigate if the origin of this problem is from childhood or of recent origins. If it is recent, you will be able to pin-point the episode. If not, talk to your parents and see if they remember any incidents from your childhood, even in prenatal life, of any contributing factors. The counselor will be able to help out with this information. You can follow these simple rules too: 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 scotching 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: find someone to love and to love you back. 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 everyday and learn to be contended 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.

Not only Yoga, there are so many things for you to explore to deal with the stress and as well as to concentrate. Here are some things you can do to be calm and to get back your concentration and memory: 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 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. The following foods do help too: 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 junk food.

I wake up in the morning around 5 AM and go about my chores for going to the office, including making my black coffee, half an hour's exercise, shave and bath. Between 5 & 7 AM I am terribly depressed every day and do not want to go to the office. I long for the nights and I hit the bed at around 10 PM and generally, I sleep well. Once in a week/10 days, I have to pop in half Calmpose. I consume hard drinks (a quarter bottle, i.e. 3-4 pegs) atleast two times in a week. Once I reach the office, I am completely engrossed in my work, which is mostly on the computer. I am about 56 years of age. My boss in office is not an easy person to work and the organization is also not a good one which, in fact, is the impression of many of my colleagues, both about the office and the boss. But we can't leave as we have a couple of years left. As for me, personally, I was divorced about 15 years and am not in touch with my former wife and only daughter. I have not remarried and am living with my elder brother and his family and our mother. Saturdays and Sundays are holidays and I am mostly at home and seldom go out. Please advise if I am in some kind of a depression?

It is difficult to tell from the above information alone. It is better if you meet a psychiatrist and explain your problems in detail. He may be able to clarify your doubts and offer suggestions if necessary. In some people depression may be mild but lasts for years together and hence reduces the quality of life.

People have different comfort levels in talking to people from the opposite gender. While extroverts like being the centre of attention and interacting with others, introverts may be shy in nature and are not always comfortable with social interaction. The good news is that you can overcome your phobia with the help of psychotherapy and counselling. Counselling is a completely confidential process and will help address your fears.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. You may be correct. Your girl friend could be mentally in relationship with you. But do not take it as a conclusion. You have to wait and watch. You also has observed many things about her like she behaves immature etc. I suggest you to propose to her, if you are interested and immediately you will get your answer. Take care.
