My love left me alone and chose his own path. But I am mad about him. Not even a second I can stop thinking of him. I keep crying all the time. How to forget him.

You seem to have invested a lot of time and emotion in this relationship which is why you are going through this agony. Also loving a person doesn't mean that you will get to spend your life with them. People will come and go but will you keep falling apart or will you take charge of your life? a deeper understanding of why this happened and how you can avoid such things later could help you to put this relationship behind you. Don't try to forget it because it'll cause you more agony. Learning from this breakup is one way forward. Also your life is in your hands. You will become what you make of it.

I have lots of emotion. .causing problems of attachments. .expectations are high from own friends and family. .not of anything but of love and care and a huge indeed. .no one ever asks how I am just reply my question and does the formalities. Feels ignored a lot. Becoming week slowly from inside but was a brilliant guy at a time. Feels alone from inside. Just when I starts thinking someone my own I feels they try to move on leaving me behind and alone. Before that for others I am always a important and brilliant.

First things first. You need to love yourself. Don't expect others to praise you. Pat yourself and appreciate your capabilities. Have a sense of self worth. Because no one will love and understand you like yourself. People's praise is but temporary, so forget it. Do what makes you happy and make your life one of joy and happiness. All else will follow.

Such experiences evoke strong feelings in us which shouldn't be suppressed. Psychotherapy along with medication can help immensely.

I am 30 years old and I am suffering from forgetting things,how can i get my mind sharp.

You may be under some stress, and I do not know if you are aware of it. Find out what this disturbance is all about and as you address it, memory and concentration will happily return to favor you. Do meet with a counselor, if your stress is too much. In the meantime please follow the suggested guidelines: Daily exercise of at least half an hour is a must. Even if you go to a gym, ask for aerobic and/or calisthenics 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 or coconut 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. Short-term memory is a faculty of the left brain, and long-term memory is a feature of the right brain. But you must have short term memory to convert it into long-term memory. So the emphasis must be in activating good short term memory, ideally and always. 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. If your home life is full of distractions and stress, it is likely to affect your memory, adversely. In that case, I suggest that you and the family go for counseling too.

No not at all. Epilepsy isnot controlled by all this home remedies. You have to take medicines suggested by your doctor. Certain things you have to keep in mind always- epilepsy threshold is decreased (i. E. Increase chances of getting fits) whenever you are fasting, not sleeping adequately and in fever, alcohol consumption etc. Thus avoid fasting and consult your doctor during fever. Few things keep in mind that epilepsy itself has very less mortality rate but epilepsy/fits occuring at wrong places can be fetal. It can be controlled by antiepileptic drugs.

Abused codeine- 400 mg, alcohol, Marijuana, nicotine in combination for around 4 year, now on alprazolam- 4 mg a day for around 3 months, it helped a lot, now completely off of codeine and seeming no problems with other mentioned drugs but want to get off alprazolam as well as the anxiety, now again consulted a psychaitrist, advised total abstain from alprax and prescribd clonazepam 1 mg 3 times a day, and prothiaden 25 mg once a day, will that be sufficie to get me off alprax and to face the withdrawals? I had previously taken clonazepam, dosent work well on me, pls suggest something mentally satisfying.

You are addicted to Alrprazolam. You need to continue clonazepam and try do exercise which will release seratonin/ Take milk/ meditation and relaxation/ Pranayama. Concentrate on work you do. Forget you are an addict. Subsequently CBt and have a group of NA to help you.

I am suffering from depression or tension. I don't know what I am suffering from. I just started working and its been 3 months now in a company and I am not doing it properly. It is causing me my job rejection. And I could be thrown out. So by this I wasn't been able to sleep properly and can't focus in anything. So my question is should I take medicine to do something for this or should I calm myself for it?

Dear lybrate-user! do not worry about the concentration problem, which is very common in teen age. 1. Avoid getting tension 2. Always be cool and relax 3. Avoid if you have any bad habits like smoking, masturbation, drinks 4. Always do not tense about studies 5. Daily meditate for 30 minutes - your concentration will be improve, initially its seems some how tough, but try to practice, you can have very good contration 6. Take more dry fruits, vegetbales 7. Take more fish - which contains - omega acids- help in developing concentration 8. Take more spinach 9. Have some regular exercise for 3o minutes daily 10. Any individual can concentrate oly for 20 minute, so while studying take break for 5 minute of every 20 minutes. Wish you all the best for your studies thank you

I smoke 8 times a day. Still want to increase. Tell me how to make my mind to decrease.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

That effect is called the increasing tolerance for the substance. For all addictive substances the body and mind can tolerate it and more and more of the substance is required to have the same effect as the first time you the the substance. Tobacco consumption, either through smoke or other edible forms, is always harmful. The desire to quit is a good starting point. The best way to quit is to know more about the ill-effects of tobacco. The knowledge is astounding and scary. That information itself should help you to want to quit. The tobacco tar in cigarette smoke lines your lung with huge patches that make that portion dysfunctional. Your oxygen carrying capacity is jeopardized, and breathing is impinged. The nicotine in tobacco smoke stimulates the heart beat to raise the blood pressure in no time at all. There are more than 4000 harmful chemicals in cigarette smoke!!! You will need to stop smoking or consuming any tobacco related items with immediate effect. Then you need to identify why you smoke: there is an oral need, the nicotine effect, the psychological effect of covering up some other issue, for style, to impress, etc. You may discover that the reasons may be unimportant at this stage because you have become too addicted and the habit has become compulsive. You should start exercises, gradually increasing it over a period of time. Do deep breathing exercises every time you feel like smoking (try Yoga), and replace the oral urge with some healthy food substitute to satiate the need. You may take hard candy or chewing gum. If the urge is too strong, then use nicotine chewing gum or nicotine patches, for a little while until the smoking drive reduces substantially. You may join Smokers Anonymous in your city where the support is really extraordinary for like-minded people who are also in the same situation. Keep yourself occupied or engaged with interesting activities during the times when it is most tempting. Keep the company of non-smokers for some time i.e. at least for the first 21 days. Above all announce it to everyone that you have quit smoking. Here’s a piece of very good advice: even if you accidentally/willfully take a cigarette, it is not the end of the world – you can start the cessation all over again. Don’t be discouraged because it is not too late even now to reverse all the ill-effects of smoking. You must persevere with the best support until you defeat this addiction. Counseling is very useful in the initial stages and when temptations are at their highest.

Do you worry a lot! Do you worry about small things! Do you have uncontrollable worries! You may be having generalised anxiety disorder. Medicines and Cognitive behaviour therapy are available as effective treatment options for this. Consult a psychiatrist and get treated.

I lost my every thing in my life. So I am very upset and sad every time. Pls help me.
See you think and perceive that you have lost everything. Take time to reflect and practically evaluate whether you have actually lost everything or its just in your mind even if something did not go the way you wanted it to be, then also its never to late to start again. Quite possible this time you do better than last time. Find ways to realize your potential and act on it too. All the best.

Yes it can be one of the reasons, but not the final reason. Ask her to practice reading anything loudly in a room, practice will solve the problem, and of course you can visit the dentist to find out other reasons.

Recheck your thyroid levels. If they are low, you will require increased thyroxine supplementation. Having low thyroid hormones makes weight loss more challenging than usual. Being an asthmatic, heavy exercise is not recommended as it may trigger attacks. However if you are on regular medication and not getting attacks frequently, start some mild form of exercise. Also, modify your diet: increase the amount of fresh fruits and vegetables, salads and reduce processed foods. Weight loss works best when you focus on diet and exercise. Try some relaxation techniques like deep breathing, meditation and yoga; these will help to reduce your stress. Ensure you are getting adequate sleep at night. Spend time with family or friends and confide in those whom you are comfortable. Indulge in any activities or hobbies that you like.
