Hello Dr. I study well but now little less active in studies don't know what happened. I want to come back with full energy as before. How must I increase my concentration while studying. I was affected by Dengue haemorrhagic fever 4 years back. please do help me. REGARDS.

Cut down your study material into portions and make a time table. Study for 45 mins at a time then take a 5-15 min break. Study during the hours you are most alert and receptive. Maintain regular sleep and wake times. Do some mindfulness techniques that will help your concentration. Yoga and meditation also help to improve concentration. You can consult me for further management if required.

I am 19 and i'm studying. I am in a love relation last year and that existed only 6 months. The girl said that she cannot accept me as her lover. She said that i am only a friend to her. But till now i am not able to forget the girl I loved. Please help. Me. What should I do?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

If you had broken up and you are still thinking about her, it only means that you loved this girl very much. Since she was the one to break up with her, you must accept this wish of hers and move on. The clock cannot be turned back again, I suppose. You might have probably entered into a symbiosis and her leaving has become too difficult. That itself might be the reason for the breakup. Girls want a relationship where independence is respected and there is no clingy behavior. You have got to look into this aspect of your personality. Are you becoming too dependent on the girl and therefore demanding? This is not a welcome feature for a girl to want to maintain this relationship. You must develop yourself to become independent and responsible. Maintain respectful distance. There are three important developments in an individual that creates an autonomous personality: intimacy, awareness, and spontaneity. Of these, awareness is of great importance: it will help you know yourself internally and to also make you conscious of other people around you. Such a person is able to meet his needs and that of the other in a balanced manner. You must learn to do this soon. You are still young and have a lot to learn. In fact when you are in a college, you will meet many girls and will interact with them. If you resolve the symbiosis, you will do really well. Meet with a counselor and describe your longings, needs and wants, openly. Take your parents along and let them describe your entire life till now and the counselor will get an understanding of your plight. Remove everything that is a reminder of this girl and start working on your development. Demonstrate how you will look after yourself and work on doing that. Learn independence skills and do a personality development course too.

All About Paranoid Personality Disorder

Psychiatrist, Delhi
All About Paranoid Personality Disorder

Paranoid personality disorder (PPD) is a mental disorder which makes you feel fearful, nervous and suspicious about people or situations around. This disease usually starts to show its signs from early adulthood and is more common in men than women. People suffering from this disorder are unable to maintain close and long lasting relationships with people as they have the habit of blaming and not trusting other people. The most common symptoms of this disorder are:

  1. Doubting the loyalty of others
  2. Fear of revealing their own personal information
  3. A tendency of holding long lasting grudges
  4. Inability to handle criticisms
  5. Abrupt instances of anger and instant reaction
  6. Showing traits of coldness in a relationship
  7. Having a feeling of always being right
  8. Having problems in relaxing
  9. Being stubborn, argumentative and hostile
  • Causes: The exact cause behind PDD is still unknown, but according to some medical researchers it happens due to a combination of biological and psychological conditions. Additionally, bad emotional experiences during childhood and having gone through a physical or mental trauma also leads to the development of the disease.
  • Diagnosis: This condition cannot be diagnosed at home and is usually diagnosed by a specialist. The first step taken by a doctor in order to diagnose the disorder is an examination of the medical and psychiatric history of the person. Additionally, if the health records of a person do not indicate anything, then the doctors usually go for some expert opinions by a psychiatrist.
  • Treatment: Most of the people suffering from this disease are not even aware about it, until someone brings it to their notice. Doctors usually believe that psychotherapy, which is a form of counseling, is the best way to treat PDD.

I am ca student. I am 23 years old. From the last 2-3 years, I have noticed a great decline in memory, which is creating problems in my daily life. I used to forgot little things from childhood itself but that didn't use to bother me. Now this is making me feel inferior. Another issue is that it takes me a little more time to recall things (like when someone asks me something, it takes a second or two to reply). What could be the problem with me & any possible solution?

Dear, at your age, memory problems like amnesia are not common. Many young people are having problems with memory. These problems are either they are too busy or due to anxiety and stress. Busy people use organizers or employ a personal assistant because they can't remember every task. You need to understand this. If you still say, you are having memory problems, we need to check your memory using memory test. If you want more of my help in this regard, please contact me. Take care.

I am 19 years old. I have problem with my short term memory day by day its increasing. What should i do?

DM - Neurology
I think you mean that you have a problem with your short-term memory (stm), that you are forgetting things, and you feel this is worsening day by day. At this point, this is a perception, and self-observed conclusions on our cognitive functions ('brain functions') are notoriously unreliable; anxiety, low self-esteem and other psychological factors contribute to this low reliability. Still, since this is a worry, it needs objective assessment: a neurologist, or a psychologist should perform a formal test, such as a mini-mental status exam (mmse) to confirm or rule out your suspicion. Any discussion on the reasons and about possible treatments and outcomes would only be meaningful after that assessment is completed.

I am 18 years old male suffering from depression since more than two years. I have tried a lot of combinations of antidepressants during this period but have had no response. Please help.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You need to meet with a counselor immediately and if that person feels you need to meet with a doctor too, you must do so. You must cooperate with both therapies and be consistent. I suggest that you visit these professionals along with your parents because their involvement is quite critical to your recovery. If it is of recent origin, you could easily pin-point it and take care of it. But I suspect that it may have to do with something in your developmental years, or your family background. In the meantime do the following, sincerely: 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. If you love yourself adequately, you will never do harm to yourself. Be positive always and learn to do everything possible to invest into yourself. Life is extremely precious and because the depression, which is a mood disorder, makes you feel like giving up you must still persevere. 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. Because you are young the prognosis is good subject to your cooperation.

MBBS, MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Chennai
Definitely possible. First and foremost will be to practice in a familiar surrounding . Go to gyms and other activity places to interact with people. Try to practice in front of mirror. Practice relaxation exercises and yoga which can help. Avoid smoking and alcohol if any. Avoid too much caffeine and junk food. Last and most importantly believe in yourself and face it. Usually we feel nervous because we think what others think about us. Erase such thoughts and march ahead in life. All the best. Be relaxed stay healthy.

I have a 6 years old son. When he talks he couldn't say sound of r instead of r he says L and his voice is also not fully clear. I have visited a speech therapist he said his tongue is weak and its a case of articulation .pls suggest.

Master of Speech Language Pathology

Hi lybrate-user, it is an articulation problem as suggested by your speech therapist, and it needs to be corrected. Most treatment is focused on awareness and learning correct way to produce the sound r at different position of the word. It is not an overnight job. It takes time and dedication. It can be made creative in order to get the child's attention to do what and how you want. You may want to take regular classes with speech therapy. Please do not wait for time to heal. It usually does not. All the best.

M.D in Psychiatry
lybrate-user, after going through your narrative, I feel that you are having Generalized anxiety disorder. This can be managed with yoga and pranayam, to a significant extent. If you consult or being referred to clinical psychologists, they will teach you relaxation training and cognitive behaviour therapy or mindfulness therapy. If your anxiety is still considerable, then you may be prescribed few drugs. I can understand how much it is affecting your academic performance and your self esteem. It can be definitely managed with yoga or by relaxation training etc. Please consult a psychiatrist. I wish you overcome your distress and do well in life.

Hi it's for my dad he drinks alcohol too much is there anything to reduce the alcohol habit.

M.Phil clinical Psychology, MS Psychotherapy and Counseling, PGDGC, MSc Psychology
Psychologist, Chennai
Hi there are systematic methods to reduce and even stop drinking alcohol even if it has gone to the stage of addiction. This may involve a systematic deaddiction process, group therapy, aversion therapy and individual counselling. But the biggest blockage is the all these methods can be used only if your father is motivated.

Dear, you should be able to distinguish between disappointment and depression. Disappointment also brings on symptoms identical to depression but they are short lived. Were your" she" disappointed in the near past? if the symptoms are due to disappointment, simple counseling will do the trick. Consult a psychologist. Take care.

How often in a year, can a smoker of cigarette's scale one's teeth, to get rid of nicotine stains?

MDS - Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery

All individuals requires scaling (cleaning) to be done atleast once in 6 months to maintain our oral hygiene clean. In case of smokers, if stains are more, scaling can be done once in 3 months also. Our toothbrush is not much finely designed to clean all the plaque and calculi in the interdental areas of the teeth, which is the area where most of the calculus accumulate much and has to be removed regularly using scalers by the dentist.
