Doc I have a problem of forgetting. I forget to some general things even some names or words that generally everyone knows.

There is s possibility that you are having learning disabilty (dyslexia) with limitations in working memory. Check whether you are attentive to whatever you do, or preoccupied with some other thought whenever you are doing any activity. If this is the problem then improve your attention by overcoming the preoccupation using" here and now" method consistently. If you feel that you have to improve you memory there are a number of techniques such as cue control, sequential prioritizing etc. If you feel that you are anxious stressed or sleep deprived which leads to forgetting consult a clinical psychologist at the earliest edit answer.

I am 18 years old. I got 78% in class 12 board exam and I am in a relationship with a girl for 3 years. Now she broke up with me. I am not happy with my marks. I am treated very badly by my parents for that. My girlfriend likes another boy who is much more talented than me and more good looking. I am suffering in depression. I need her the most in this situation. What should I do to become relieved from depression?

This is an eye opener for you. As you have seen your girlfriend breaking with you to have another talented boy as her boyfriend. So, your talent counts a lot nothing else. So try to concentrate in life about your achievement then girls will come behind you. So study well; get good marks. All the best.

Better go for a psychiatric evaluation by a paediatric psychiatrist/clinical psychologist to rule out any developmental disability. Early intervention is half cure.

Alzheimer's disease occurs in old age due to cerebral atrophy. It causes dementia (forgetful ness, failure to recognize objects, disorientation. To improve your memory follow the advice given below 1. Take balanced diet with proper combination of carbohydrate, protein and fat. Avoid diet high in saturated fats like red meat, whole milk, butter, cheese, cream, ice cream etc which hampers memory and concentration. Take complex carbohydrates like whole wheat bread, brown rice, oat meal, high fiber cereals, lentils, whole beans etc. Avoid processed foods like pasta, potato etc 2. Eat plenty of green leafy vegetables and fruits and drink green tea since they contain anti oxidants which enhance memory 3. Go for regular physical exercise like brisk walking, jogging, cycling etc for 30-45 minutes daily 4. Take some mental exercise like doing cross word puzzle, problem solving exercise, playing chess etc 5. Develop some new hobby and skill like learning music, dancing, playing new game etc 6. Take adequate rest. 7-8 hours of sound sleep in the night is required to remain healthy 7. Avoid alcoholic beverages, caffeinated drink, smoking and consumption of tobacco etc. 8. Develop healthy relationship with friends, relatives, family members for good emotional health 9. Avoid stress, anxiety, depression, agitation, severe physical and mental exertion 10. Focus on one task at a time rather than focusing on multiple task 11.

Medical History- Abused codeine- 400 mg, alcohol, Marijuana, nicotine in combination for around 4 years, sought psychiatric help but to no avail, now on alprazolam- 4 mg a day for around 2 months, it helped a lot for fighting with above mentioned drugs, now completely off of codeine and seeming no problems with other mentioned drugs but want to get off alprazolam as well as the anxiety. Is abrupt cessation of alprazolam safe, becoz i don't have an urge to take them, i stopped taking it for around 4 days but experienced some withdrawal symptoms so i started with a 2 mg a day in 2 divided doses and withdrawals are completely gone, mentally ready to rely on innocent activities like yoga, pranayams, exercises. Is a gradual decrease of .5 mg every 7 days would do the trick for me or shal i stop it immediately and suffer withdrawals that i think would be short lasting, but the confusion is that immediate cessation would lead to the return of other habits becoz of that anxiety... Pls help.

You seem to have taken the right step in your life by deciding to be off recreational drugs. But I don't understand why you are hesitant to take professional help to get you off drugs. Abrupt cessation may cause withdrawal symptoms, relapse of drug abuse and many other complications. Why don't you consult a psychiatrist who will give you medicines temporarily to reduce your withdrawal symptoms. Also he will help you in overcoming craving and preventing relapse. - Dr.Parthasarathy, Psychiatrist OMR Chennai.

You have to think of your whole lifestyle and bring necessary changes. You have to understand the importance of a disciplined lifestyle if you want to achieve something great. Without sincerity and planning it's not possible. A few simple steps can improve your concentration. Stop multitasking. Focus on doing one thing at a time. Eat healthy food only. Before you study ensure that you had a light food which is freshly prepared and easy to digest. Your overall diet should be nutritious and balanced. Avoid junk food and readymade fast-foods and juices. Have different types of fruits and vegetables everyday. Start exercising every day, begin with simple walking for 15-20 mins. You can repeat a different exercise in the evening. Use innovative ideas to keep up the enthusiasm. You can also play any game or sports. A good night's sleep will make you feel fresh and rejuvenated. So sleep hygiene is to be strictly followed. Doing selfless work like helping others can make you feel good and pump up your self esteem. You will start believing in yourself and your potential to do something big. Practice yoga and pranayama regularly to harmonise the mind and body. Understanding your nature and being humble to accept your mistakes will empower you to do the best. Challenge your self. Take the help of others if needed without feeling inferior or guilty. All the best.

Therapy along cognitive behavioural therapy will help. Start by recognising your thought processes just before and during a panic attack. Medication may have some benefit but unlikely to cure it on its own.

Increase you liquid intake in the form of water, lemonade, fresh fruit juices and milk. Drink carrot juice, aloe vera juice, grape juice.

Dear , miscarriage is not your fault. Your husband should understand that. You should be able to distinguish between disappointment and depression. Disappointment also brings on symptoms identical to depression but they are short lived. You are disappointed because of the twin troubles you are facing. I suggest online psychological counseling sessions. Contact me. Take care.

I suspect that the adolescent issues with regard to hormones may be affecting your ability to concentrate and remember. When the hormones play up, it lasts for a period of close to two years and during that time you could be influenced by three signs directly impacted by the chemical: you will tend to become aggressive and rebellious, you will become sexually active, and you will have acne and pimple problems. The hormonal imbalances may not only impact your memory because of the chemical but also bring some distractions that come with it. But you may work on the following even if the hormones kick in: 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.

Hello, I am 27 years old. Sometimes I feel very nervous. How to overcome this situation? Please tell me.
Dear Utpal. Nervousness is anxiety. 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. When a person fears about something now (which may or may not happen in the future) and if he do it repeatedly, it is called anxiety disorder. These fear provoking feelings are called anxiety and it may cause variety of physical symptoms, such as a racing heart, restlessness, helplessness 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 counseling and psychotherapy to overcome and manage your anxiety. Take care.

10 Study Tips to Improve Your Learning Study Tip 1: Underlining Underlining is one of the simplest and best known study tips. It’s easy to highlight the most significant parts of what you’re reading. One key sentence per paragraph and a few important phrases here and there. You can only retain a certain amount so it’s best to retain the most important information. Study Tip 2: Make your own note and taking notes is one of the most widespread study skills out there. Essentially the aim of note-taking is to summarise lectures or articles in your own words so you can easily remember the ideas. Study Tip 3: Mind mapping A good Mind map can save you many hours of study and further consolidate your knowledge for your exams. Mind Maps are an extremely versatile tools. They can be used for brainstorming, outlining essays or study topics and for general exam preparation, ExamTime offers the ability to create Mind Maps quickly and easily which makes them the ideal tool when it comes to exams. Study Tip 4: Flash cards:- Using these are a particularly effective method of learning when trying to assimilate different facts, dates, formulas or vocabulary. Subjects such as History, Physics, Maths, Chemistry, Geography or any language are made much easier if you incorporate Flashcards in to your study. Study Tip 5: Case Studies Sometimes it can be difficult to grasp the implications of some theories. This is where studying case studies can be a big help. Case studies can help you visualise a theory and place it in a more familiar and realistic context. This is especially useful in business or law subjects. Study Tip 6: Quizzes are an excellent way to review study notes in the weeks and days before an exam. Quizzes can show where your strengths and weaknesses are, so it allows you to focus your efforts more precisely. Moreover, if you share your Study Quiz with your classmates and test each other as much as possible you can discover even more details and areas you may have overlooked. So before any exam, make sure you create and share a bunch of different Quizzes with your Friends. Study Tip 7: Brainstorming This is another study technique that is ideal for studying with friends and/or classmates. Brainstorming is a great way to expand every possible idea out of any topic. Just get a bunch of friends together and shoot the breeze, there are no wrong answers when brainstorming – just talk and capture the ideas, you can review afterward. Study Tip 8: Mnemonic Rules Mnemonics are especially useful when memorising lists and sets. Mnemonics rules basically work by associating certain concepts with other concepts that are more familiar to us. There are many different ways to make mnemonics and these can be individual to the person. Study Tip 9: ORGANISE your study One of the most effective study skills is also one of the most often overlooked; this is organising your study. Creating a TIME TABLE gives you goals and a time in which to achieve them. Having a study timetable as you study is greatly motivational Study Tip 10: Drawing Many people find it easier to recall images rather than text that is why they are better able to memorise concepts if they associate them with pictures or drawings.
