I have temper issues. I am very low tempered. This has cost me a lot. But I can't help it. How to overcome this issue?

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. Anger and aggression are emotions. These emotions are triggered when you are frustrated, disappointed, stressed or anxious. You need to watch your mental condition and understand the reason why you are short tempered. I suggest online anger management therapy. Take care.

I am a 12 class student. Whenever I study I feel much more stress on my mind. What should I do. Pls help.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

Yes, it could be stress that is causing the problem with your studies. Meet with a counselor and deal with that stress effectively to get some relief. In the meantime follow these recommendations: 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. 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 sugar and junk food.

If you really have the desire to quit smoking then only you can quit otherwise nothing can do anything. Soo all you need is to calculate how mny cigarette you smoke per day. Jst quit 1 cig per week. Say your taking 20 cig per day jst quit 1.19 cig per day do it for one week. Next week take 18 per day. Like this way quit jst 1 cig per week. N after few weeks you gonna see that you have quit it. That's the easiest way. Remember this only help you if you have burning desire to quit.

I am 27 years old, I'm very upset with my sudden changing behavior, like when I am in a good mood and everything goes fine, then my behavior will remain calm, polite and sweet with others and my near ones, but if anybody speaks anything which is not relevant according to me or I can say, which is not in my favor or may be he/she is wrong and I am right or vice a versa, then my behavior my mood suddenly gets changed and I am full of anger, which is intolerable or unmanageable for me as well as for my parents to make me calm and handle me. Whenever I am in anger, my anger is always at a glance, that sometimes I also don't know what I am doing at that time, I throw things here and there like this. My mom and me also, also worried that she think how can you survive with others once you'll get marry. Dr. Please help me and give me some best out of best tips in order to get rid from my aggression. Thanks.

These switching moods are not a good sign and you must therefore visit a counselor first and if that person thinks that you need to meet with a doctor then you must. I also suggest that you take your parents along because they will be able to throw light on any past events in childhood that may have contributed to this development. I hope this was a recent phenomenon because then the possibilities for change are good. In counseling, which incidentally will be a long term intervention, you will learn of a lot of ways to cope with life and make adjustments that are essential for normal living. Emotional therapy will alleviate a lot of the problems faced in this condition because it is a mood disorder. You must exercise regularly, eat healthily and sleep normally too. When you exercise vigorously the energy of the anger will be expelled and you will feel anger minus the force, and therefore it will be easier to manage. If your motivation and cooperation is good much can be achieved. You must have a time-structured schedule filled with interesting and reasonable activities and it must be monitored for compliance and delivery. If you are put on medication then the combination of medication with therapy must be maintained for at least three years without any episodes or breakdowns: after that it is possible to taper the medication in consonance with the doctor.

Hi. I am 23 years old. I have OCD. But I don't get panic attacks. BP is normal. And I don't worry heavily. Sleep is normal. No alcohol, no smoking. Recently I got conjunctivitis. It reduced in a week. But I am observing that every time I eat a sweet, the symptoms of conjunctivitis again. I am afraid of having diabetes. If not ,then why does it happen? I walk almost 2 kms everyday, Perform deep breathing exercises and don't eat too much sweets. My weight reduced by 3 kg because of new environment, but increased by 5 kg when I adjusted to it.

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Chennai
Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) is a common mental health problem. Symptoms typically include recurring thoughts and repetitive actions in response to the recurring thoughts. A common example is recurring thoughts about germs and dirt, with a need to wash your hands repeatedly to "clean off the germs" However, there are many other examples. The usual treatments are cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI) antidepressant medicine, or both. Treatment often works well to reduce the symptoms and distress of OCD greatly.

BASM, MD, MS (Counseling & Psychotherapy), MSc - Psychology, Certificate in Clinical psychology of children and Young People, Certificate in Psychological First Aid, Certificate in Positive Psychology
Psychologist, Palakkad
Dear Lybrate user, Anxiety disorders are a category of mental disorders characterized by feelings of anxiety and fear, where anxiety is a worry about future events and fear is a reaction to current events. These feelings may cause physical symptoms, such as a racing heart and shakiness. There are a number of anxiety disorders: including generalized anxiety disorder, a specific phobia, social anxiety disorder, separation anxiety disorder, agoraphobia, and panic disorder among others. While each has its own characteristics and symptoms, they all include symptoms of anxiety. I need to know more about your anxiety so that I will be able to diagnose it properly and provide you tips to overcome and manage your anxiety. Take care.

I lost somebody last year and since then feel very depressed and prefer keeping to myself all the time. Please help me.

M.A in Applied Psychology, B.A in Psychology
Psychologist, Delhi
Dear lybrate-user, I am sorry for your loss, first of all. Grieving is a difficult process and it takes sometime to get over intense feelings of sadness. However, if the grieving persists for more than 6-8 months and is severe to the point that it affects your daily functioning, it is recommended that you speak to a counsellor. Do make sure you have atleast one person (a friend, family, confidant) who is able to provide support and talk to you when you are feeling low. Thank you for writing in.

MD, MBBS

If you are suffering from the symptoms of lack of interest in work, lack of motivation to engage in pleasurable activities that you were able to do before, if you do not feel like talking to people, and difficulty in falling asleep or sleeping or and change in appetite, then you might be suffering from depression and would require counselling sessions if required medicines too.

I am 25 years of age and I smoke 4-5 cigarettes in a day. I have been a regular smoker since 6 years and I am unable to quit this thing. I have had reduced to 1-2 cigarettes in a day but never been able to quit completely. I have tried the anti-smoking chewing gum'Nicorette' but it didn't helped me out. Help me to get out of this.

(MRCPSYCH-UK), MD - Psychiatry, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Hyderabad
If you are an occasional smoker - with public messages, health awareness programs and your own doctors advice, you can quit. If you are a regular smoker, motivational therapy with a trained psychotherapist or a psychiatrist and enormous will power will help you quit. If you are a diseased smoker, consult a de addiction psychiatrist at the earliest. He may give you anti-smoking medications and de addiction treatment.

I am 20 years old girl please suggest me some antidepressant medicines which are safe for me.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Before suggesting medicines need to know your feelings and problems. Ask me privately. In a situational depression like this you need to achieve more mind control. Yoga and meditation are good. Also read or listen to music if you like it. And divert your mind by talking to good friend or relatives. Is your sleep deprived? you need constant support. Ask privately with all your details. Have you tested thyroid any time? ask privately. Www.Lybrate.Com/drsajeev.

Sir I am not able to concentrate on my studies for IIT ; My interest is depleting very fast for the same?

BASM, MD, MS (Counseling & Psychotherapy), MSc - Psychology, Certificate in Clinical psychology of children and Young People, Certificate in Psychological First Aid, Certificate in Positive Psychology
Psychologist, Palakkad
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. Please post a private question to me and I will help you with "effective learning" techniques. Take care.

Dear Lybrate user. I can understand. Loosing someone dear and near causes grief. Grief leads to disappointment. Grief related disappointment manifests symptoms as in the case of depression. But disappointment symptoms are far shorter in duration than depression. These symptoms will vanish in some days or weeks. Don’t worry. Physical exercise, outdoor games, entertainment, hobbies etc could help you divert your attention. I suggest cognitive therapy. Take care.
