Hello lybrate-user, firstly, I understand how hard it must be to feel the way you are feeling, I totally empathize with you. One strategy you can try is for seventeen seconds think about something that will make you happy. Fix your mind on that happy thought. After seventeen seconds you will feel much better after you have diverted your negative energy into positive thinking management. I hope this helps. And I hope you are able to concentrate on your studies more.

A relationship with a girl is not a quiz. Hugs, kisses, and sex may all come about int he course of a healthy relationship but you cannot earmark a certain behavior or time it out. To really keep a relationship strong you must respect each other and never use pressure to manipulate anything. There must be love, commitment, obligation, trust, respect, and mutuality in everything that is said and done. You seemed to be focused too much on the physical aspects and that itself is holding the wrong end of the stick. You see, we are into relations all throughout our lives. Yet, for the least of reasons, when it comes to marriage we are ready to throw in the towel. I am glad that you are seeking to know how to keep the relationship strong and healthy. Yes, communication is important. But there are two important considerations that matter a lot before you take the plunge (if you do that is): compatibility and adjustability. The former is almost a fixed aspect of both of you and it includes education, language, communication, community, caste, religion, socio-economic status, personality etc. The more the similarity, the better. The second consideration, that of adjustability, is more important and plays a very important role to determine whether your relationship will remain healthy or not. If compatibility is good, less adjustability is required. But as in most cases, there will be some disparity, and this will tax adjustability considerably. If you are not able or willing to adjust, all hell will break lose. This is what you must examine while you are courting each other. Is s/he willing to make the adjustment around you, and are you able to and willing to adjust for the sake of the relationship. If you know there are stark difficulties, then better to close that prospect. Everything involves some aspect of culture eventually: for example, she may be used to going out with her friends for drinks often. Now if you cannot adjust with this, then this will be a definite area of conflict. There are too many possibilities and this space will not suffice to give elaborate responses. Both of you will generally act positively before marriage but soon after the nuptials one or both of you will tend to control the other and there lies the danger. So it is very difficult to determine the true nature of an individual at the onset. But it is worth the try. So test everything to be fully satisfied, and this is best achieved by good and open communication. For your information, there are three areas that stand out as contributing to divorce: sex, in-laws, and finances. Discuss these areas and get to know the other’s mindset. Better to be safe than sorry. I have a very important suggestion to give you if you are looking for a strong relationship to culminate in marriage: please seek premarital counseling where many of these facts will be explained and taught to both of you if you get a qualified counselor to do it.

Hi sir. Can you help me out? In my ct scan .Persistent cavum septum pellucidum of 8mm with cavum verge and cavum velum interpositium'. Can you tell me about this? Everything is normal other than this.

General Physician,
The cavum vergae (CV), along with the cavum septum pellucidum (CSP) is a persistence of the embryological fluid-filled space between the leaflets of the septum pellucidum and is a common anatomical variant. The CV is sometimes referred to as the 6th ventricle For the majority of individuals, CSP produces no ill effects.

I can't concentrate in study and other works. please give me some advise. what should I do?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

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.

Memory can be improved by planning properly and revising intelligently. Daily revisions weekly revisions and doing mock tests and also writing the answers by closing the book and using your fingers over each line of text book to improve your concentration.

Dear Lybrate user. I can understand. Ask a voice coach for breathing and vocal exercises to make your voice more resonant and relaxed. See a speech pathologist or physician for persistent problems such as vocal fatigue or hoarseness. Learn to warm up and rest your voice before and after intense use, such as teaching or coaching. Take care.

Hello doctor, I got married in Jan 2017 .my husband is eight years elder than me. N this is arrange marriage. We didn't get much time before marriage to spend with each other. Because he leaves in canada n I leaves in India. We only talk on phone before 2 months of marriage. He came here for marriage. After that he went back. We spent 18 days together after marriage. N now we usually talk on phone. I got to know that he is short tampered. He usually yell on me because of other persons. N he use very abusive language for them in front of me. Those persons are some time my project manager, some times my brother ,or my sister .I don't know people around me. He have problem with all. N when I defend them that you are misunderstanding then he never listen n screams on me. N always complain to my mother in law about me. I don't know he is mentally fine or not. But what to do now I am afraid. My family too scared to send me there in canada now for him. Please guide me what to do Thanks n regards.

Try to get him realise what he does. In India, A female chatacter is seen as a holy importance. He needs to inderstand you or you can give him chance of getting better. The treatment for your complain is tendem love and intimacy. Get urself here prepare for giving him a chance or coming back if he can not change. Marriage is a initiation of happiness not sadness. Be calm and get him a chance. Its not called medical problem. I can only give advice. It may seem/be wrong also.

Dear lybrate-user. I can understand. Smoking cigarettes can cause cancer and many other respiratory problems and physical and mental health problems in the long run. Your boy friend must be relatively new to smoking. Therefore you can easily motivate him to quit smoking. I also suggest online deaddiction counselling for him. Take care.

My Husband is 40 years old, and we have been married for last 10 years, he has been working in the shares/ stock market for the past 15 years, from the last three years he has been working from home, and started abusing verbally and physically. And when he is in good mood he denies to have shown that behavior, and blames the other person. He has started living with his parents for the last 8 months and tries to avoid all responsibilities of his family, wife and 8 year old son. I want to know if he is suffering from any psychological problem and if it can be solved through medical treatment.

Specialist in Psychology
Psychologist, Mumbai
You can record the audio when he's abusing and shouting, and show it to him and his parents to confront the issue so he may decide to do something about it. Find someone he listens to who can make him visit a counselor. If that doesn't work, you'll need to make your own financial/household arrangements (e. G, live separately) so that your child's future doesn't get ruined because of this behavior. revert me for further help.

I am a chain smoker smoke 10 cigar per day. Now trying my best to quit it. Tried nicotine gum and patch but failed. please suggest me any medicine so that I can quit it.

MBBS, DPM
Psychiatrist, Bangalore
Dear Hazarika, Unless you enhance your motivational level daily for at least 12 weeks, nicotine gum and patch alone will not help you to quit. They will help you in reducing the withdrawal symptoms. The dose of nicotine gum or patch is also a point to consider. For 10 cigars, you may need 4 mg gum or 21 mg patch for the first few weeks. Since you have a psychiatric disorder in addition, it also needs to be treated simultaneously. Drugs like Buproprion is also useful and it is available over the counter without prescription. Since you have other medical conditions, it is better you get totally treated by a doctor.

Dear, you should understand your current crisis. From the given description, I learn that your body produces more female hormones in some aspect. That is a normal phenomena. Many people are such. At least you are not a mixed gender. I would like to know what are those areas where you are behaving like men. Please post a private question to me with every details so that I understand your problem and will be able to help you. Hormon treatment is another option. Take care.

Hello Mr. Iyer, hypertension (high blood pressure) can be controlled by- 1. Balanced diet low in sodium- reduce intake of salt, restrict table salt on salads, drinks, restrict ppc- papad, pickle, chutnies, ketchups. Instead use more tomatoes, lemon, tamarind for the taste factor in food. Increase intake of potassium rich fruits like coconut water to bring down bp immediately. Sweetlime, orange, banana are other choices. 2. Exercise- an hour of cardio activity like walking, jogging, swimming, outdoor games like badminton, tennis which you are engaged in will help. However try to add variations in your activity. 3. Rest- a good night's for 7-8 hrs goes a long wat in controlling bp. 4. De-stress- reduction of stress on the mind and body by doing meditation or yoga atleast 3 times/week will help. All the best.

Psychosis may occur as a result of a psychiatric illness such as schizophrenia. In other instances, it may be caused by a health condition, medication or drug use. Possible symptoms include delusions, hallucinations, talking incoherently and agitation. The person with the condition usually isn't aware of his or her behaviour. Treatment may include medication and talk therapy. It is manageable. Take care.
