It has a lot to do with your break up. It is not easy to close a relationship, and there is always a fallout when this happens. It is worse, if it was done with a lot of bitterness. You need to do certain things that will help you to deal with the break up: you must talk about your feelings either to a counselor or to a close friend, you must get into an exercise regimen to tire yourself before going to sleep, you can take a warm bath before going to bed every day, you must have your dinner before 8 pm every day, say prayers before you sleep, sleep on your side most often, think of positive things before retiring, eat a pure carbohydrate meal at night, while lying down do some light breathing deep into your abdomen, make the room as dark as possible. Apart from this clean out all things that remind you of your boyfriend, and do not visit any places you two used to haunt in your hey days.

You need to combine medication and therapy for something effective to emerge for you. There are three areas of focus in therapy that needs serious work: concentration, hyperactivity, and impulse control. You will need to put yourself on a strict time-structure with planned activities which have reasonable and reachable goals. These must be monitored and assessed regularly to give you an idea of progress. There are concentration exercises in yoga, and the ear and eye exercise, that will benefit you a lot. Meditation will be tremendously useful to moderate your responses and to develop focus and good self-control. Emotional therapy will play a significant role to alleviate the impulsive behavior to a large extent. If all this is done in a social context i. E. In groups or by mixing with other people, you will gain tremendously. You need to be cooperative at all times. Your diet could do with less carbohydrates and a good bit of fiber. It is best to avoid high-energy foods. Vigorous exercise of at least 30 minutes a day will expunge the high energy levels. The treatment is long term and arduous but it is worth putting in this effort for a reasonable outcome.

The first step in treating nicotine addiction is accepting that you have a problem. Confronting an addiction and accepting responsibility for your actions isn?t easy.

Hi, females usually have plenty of mood swings due to hormonal imbalances, especiallly during this age. Apart from this, if there are some stressors like family issues, love issues, or stress at the office, which you are finding difficult to handle, you need to share them with either your friends or family and try to sort out the things with them. Make sure your work is not affected. In case your problem is slowly affecting your work, then probably you need some professional help.

Dear Doctor, How can I increase my focus (concentration) on doing (uninteresting, but important) tasks? Many times I know some task is very important and needs to be done, yet I don? T find enough willpower to do it. And if I force myself to do it, then I can? T properly focus on it. Most of the books tell us to meditate and breathing exercises. I tried as described, but no help. Could you please tell me about how I can solve this (lack of focus.

Hello, depression is a functional disorder involving neuro chemical imbalances. It cannot be seen on any structural imaging techniques like ct or mri. The diagnosis is clinical based on history and mental status examination. Take care.

Hello lybrate-user. This need detailed sharing with a counsellor to evaluate various dynamics of your personality and relationship. Proper guidance can be facilitated after that.

Hi, I spend too much time lonely, too much time reading news articles, watching videos online which has no use. I do not talk at all with people, Its been 2 years I have moved to new place and have no local contacts at all. I do not talk at all with people in office, Does not feel to talk or socially engage with anyone. I spend my weekends holidays just sitting at home and watching TV and internet videos. Do not feel like going out even for buying food, grocery etc. Maybe I have got Asperger syndrome. Can anyone help me overcome this situation?

You claim to have been diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia, which can be quite a debilitating disease. You need to go for counseling and medication to get some benefits. Withdrawing to this extent will only get you more internal and dysfunctional over time. It is good you work but you must also socialize and meet other people and interact with them productively. The counseling gives you an avenue to work with your emotional issues and you will develop skills in coping with the everyday challenges that life throws at you. I hope your visits to the psychiatrist were regular and the medication has been frequently reviewed during these years. You need to be occupied, and fit into a routine of interesting activities every day. Yoga and meditation are also necessary to train your brain to be disciplined. Exercise always plays a stabilizing role and is the most holistic medicine besides. Since the paranoid mind is regularly perturbed by unreal fears, a reality check through counseling will help you discern fact from fiction. Your socializing and maintaining steady relations is the hallmark of a good recovery program. If I am to assume that there were no relapses during this period, then that is a good sign too. This means that your condition has remained stable all of these years! Now go to the next level along with therapy and you can look forward to a more functional and productive lifestyle.

Since this is a recent development, it will need some kind of treatment. But recent onset also means that it will respond very well to treatment. Depending upon the severity and your choice, either medicines or counseling can be done. Please revert back if interested. Thanks!

You need to look back to see what went wrong the last time and learn some lessons from it. For the depression you must visit a counselor and see how serious it is and get some help for that. 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. Learn all about emotions and how to handle them and that will get you out of the depression rather easily and quickly. 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. Whatever happens please cooperate with the therapy and do not discontinue until the condition is completely resolved. Here are some things you can do 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 sugar and junk food.

Cam GID (gender identity disorder) be cured? I mean can that feeling be treated to not to undergo transition?
Dear Lybrate User, Every person has his/her own unique gender identity and sexual inclination. In India, our laws and culture do not allow us to talk openly about it. Hence a person with GID can be under lot stress. There is no cure as such for GID, because that is what the person feels and the feelings cannot be challenged. It is advisable for the person with GID to consult a Sexologist/Counsellor and get proper assessment done. Once the assessment is done, these professionals will help in coping up with the reality and acceptance.
