If she is suicidal also, she needs treatment without her co operation. You need to admit her forcibly in any licensed hospital to take care of un co operative patients. One of the magistrates will sign the request from psychiatrist or hospital. Two psychiatrists independently need to sign that she is mentally ill and needs treatment for her own safety or others safety. One can approach police or special ambulances for mentally ill (available at bangalore) to take her to hospital. Once she is diagnosed and treated, she will become co operative and she will be given psychoeducation of depression and its treatment.

I am 35 years old my younger brother use tobacco like masala smoking etc I don't know how to stop him what to do?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
I don't understand the masala smoking bit. Whoever it is, this much is clear, whoever has the smoking habit has to want to stop the habit himself, first. Anybody else that wants to stop someone else’s habit, even if you use force, cannot succeed in the long run until the person himself wants to stop it. Now the person will want to stop the habit as soon as he has ‘Hit Rock Bottom’ when he is really ready to give it up and wants help and support. You can keep encouraging and warning him about the damage he is causing to himself and that the effects may be visible much later. Initially he needs to meet with a counselor who will encourage him to give up the habit by pointing out the imminence of ‘Hitting Rock Bottom’, and some responsive candidates respond with a serious motivation. Once that has been achieved he can be taken for detoxification either to a hospital or to a rehabilitation center and he can then follow their schedule for complete cessation. If it is not too serious, he can cope with counseling itself to sufficiently give it up. If you want to help him you can keep the following considerations in mind: The habit can be very difficult to halt because of the many conditions attached to smoking. In fact these conditions can exist all through the day unlike other addictions. But your desire to want to stop is the most important factor. It is important to find out about the ill-effects of smoking to have a reason that alarms you about continuing in the habit. The information is really scary. The nicotine in tobacco smoke stimulates the heart beat to raise the blood pressure in no time at all. So you must avoid it like the plague: it is just very bad medicine for you. In fact it is highly toxic too. You will need to stop smoking or consuming any tobacco related items with immediate effect. You should start vigorous 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 also 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 also 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. 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. All the damage you incurred earlier because of the smoking can be reverted back to normal in quick time. If these suggestions are still difficult because you are a chain smoker, I suggest you admit yourself for detoxification in a hospital for two weeks or in a center for 6 months and through their program it will become a lot easier.

How can I tell her I even don't no about women breast whether size is depends upon natural size.

First get some knowledge yourself, use google search to find info, then reassure her that small breasts are no problem for breast milk, you can have children and breast feed also if she needs cosmetic correction then breast implants are a good option.

Dear, you must be able to distinguish between mental disease and mental disorder. Your problem is a mental disorder. Not a mental disease. These mental disorders are usually treated with a combination of medicines and other means like awareness, meditation, psychotherapy techniques, life style changes etc. I think two or three counseling sessions and psycho therapy techniques should solve her problem. Let me know if she is willing to undergo counseling sessions and tailor made psycho therapy through mobile. Take care.

Loss of interest, decreased concentration and attention, feeling low and disturbed sleep or appetite are some of the signs of depression. Consult a psychiatrist who will assess you in detail. If you are feeling suicidal or hopeless, seek professional help immediately.

Dear lybrate-user, considering your wife's age and symptom of burning sensation, I would advise her to do few blood check ups like fasting sugar, vit b12 and folate level, serum calcium level, d3 and thyroid profile. After seeing the reports appropriate supplements have to be added. Till then let her continue all the tablets as prescribed so that she continues to cook and keep the house.

Last month I did my abortion coz of my health issues n from then I'm very depressed n feel lonely.

Last month I did my abortion coz of my health issues n from then I'm very depressed n feel lonely.
I am sorry for your loss. An abortion is like a loss of a loved one. It generates a grief reaction in the mother which can be profound in many. But it is also important to understand that it is natural in the first month or so. It usually goes away in a couple of months. If it persists beyond this period we might have to look for abnormal conditions such as depression. In any case from a psychological standpoint you have to understand some things. The loss is not reversible. So do not try to hold on to it. Accept the loss. Share your thoughts and feelings with near and dear ones, do not keep it to yourself. Spend quality time with family and friends. Reengage and spend more time in hobbies. Sleep and eat well; drink lot of water. Listen to calming music, do yoga and pranayam. You should get well soon. If this state continues for a few more weeks, please consult a psychiatrist.

I am loosing my memory day by day, I don't remember whatever I learnt or studied, should I check my neurons, please guide me. Give me solutions.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
No need to check anything but you could examine the following and put them into practice: 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.

Any type of medication for Schizophrenia is useless or by using these medicines only can give symptomatic relief/ temporary relief or suppress the symptoms for some time. You should go for Psychological Counseling and Psychotherapy, these therapies can be useful. Try these.

Dear lybrate user, welcome to lybrate. At your age, memory problems like amnesia, dementia or alzheimer's are not common. Many young people do complain having problems with memory. These problems are due to 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. Anyhow, there is nothing to worry. Most of the psychological problems can be cured with scientific therapy methods. Take care.

The end of a relationship often feels like the end of the world. After all the time and energy you have invested in it, it is very painful when it gets over. Keep in mind that life is full of ups and downs; nothing is permanent. The pain you feel today will go away with time. Give yourself time to heal. Give time, time. In the meanwhile don't isolate yourself from your friends and family. Confide in someone you are comfortable with. Make a list of life goals, and plan how to achieve them. Relationships are an important part of your life, but they are not everything. Spend time with those close to you, indulge in some enjoyable activities. Keep yourself busy. Slowly you will see that there is a lot to life. However if you are feeling suicidal, consult a psychiatrist immediately. Don't wait to feel worse.

I was in a relation for last 4 years. But last year we broke up and now I am totally disturbed as I cannot move on in life. Always she is in my mind and I cannot concentrate on my career and sometimes I feel to commit suicide. Please suggest what should I do in such condition.

Hi lybrate-user, I can understand what you are going through. Remember, its a temporary phase we all go through such stages like break up and we all survive. Committing suicide for someone who is no more there in your life will not serve any purpose anyway its the mot absurd act. Build your career and live for your parents, lot of girls will enter your life do not waste time on past.

I am 45 years of age, working for a bank. I find it hard to sleep at night and 2 - 3 times a week remain awake all through the night. At times when I sleep, I have a disturbed sleep. I wake up very early at around 4.00 - 4.30 am for yoga for an hour. I do not enjoy my work in the office because of heavy pressures. I do not have any children which is the root cause for my isolation. Inspite of repeated efforts, I could not have a child. My husband does not cooperates with me and I feel lonely. I had been to various psychariats for help but no body helped me, saying you learn to accept things as it is.

You lost lack of friendliness. Nobody understand your personal problems. In work area also every one do not like to talk to you. Even in home also you have no lovingness. You have no frinds and nobody loves to you. You always in the work only. You always think about work. You are not think about your personal feelings and problems. You better to consult psychologist share your problems he will suggest to you some of methods. Or better to make a very good friendliness with others. Time some more time for your personal life. Create own entertainment channels, visit new places, spend with some time with your family members. Be happy always. Be sociable. Feel always comfortable. Be positive all the time. Ok best of luck.
