Dear lybrate user. I can understand. Anger and aggression are emotions. These emotions come when you are frustrated, disappointed, stressed or anxious. The other symptoms you presented are related to low self confidence and self esteem. Take care.

I have a depression and stress and some physical problem like sleep to much and don't want to eat. Other people said me why you haven't a job and you are lazy. I can't work in any type. I can't study well and can't do exercise.

When one is in a depression, he feels like he 'can't' do many things. This, of course, is not true but due to lethargy, which is different from laziness, causes a sense of inertia. Under the influence of lethargy you will not feel like doing things, getting up from the bed, working, and even the effort to put into thinking, etc. Laziness is as a good as a choice and has more to do with unwillingness. Even so, you need to fight this condition. You must go and meet with a counselor immediately and if that person advises that you meet with a doctor you must do so and cooperate to your utmost. Please visit these professionals along with your parents. In the meantime please do the following sincerely because you could resolve the problem better with good cooperation: 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 scorching 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 every day and learn to be contented 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.

Hello doctor, I'm very much attracted to girls but I'm really afraid to talk to them. Even a very casual touch makes me go crazy about them. I feel extremely excited even when they stand near me. How to overcome this? Is this a kind of social phobia? Help me. Thank you.

Dear. I understand your concerns. I went through the details. You are correct. Afraid to talk to ladies, feeling crazy with even a casual touch, excitement while standing near to girls etc are symptoms of social phobia which happens during adolescent period. You should also understand this type fo social phobia is normal, common and can be treated 100% with the help of counseling and psychotherapy. I request you to consult a psychologist for the above. As an interim measure, you should stop worrying about this. I hope this answer satisfies you. I am available for further clarifications. Take care.

Hi my self Nazeer, I have short temper memory problem, I have taken many medicine but no changes. What should I do.

Masters in Clinical Psychology
Psychologist, Lucknow
Hi lybrate-user, Do the following: 1. Think before you speak In the heat of the moment, it's easy to say something you'll later regret. Take a few moments to collect your thoughts before saying anything — and allow others involved in the situation to do the same. 2. Once you're calm, express your anger As soon as you're thinking clearly, express your frustration in an assertive but nonconfrontational way. State your concerns and needs clearly and directly, without hurting others or trying to control them. 3. Get some exercise Physical activity can help reduce stress that can cause you to become angry. If you feel your anger escalating, go for a brisk walk or run, or spend some time doing other enjoyable physical activities. 4. Take a timeout Give yourself short breaks during times of the day that tend to be stressful. A few moments of quiet time might help you feel better prepared to handle what's ahead without getting irritated or angry. 5. Identify possible solutions Instead of focusing on what made you mad, work on resolving the issue at hand. Remind yourself that anger won't fix anything and might only make it worse.

Hi I couldn't learn English. This is big barriers for my career. And also didn't understand other things. Like maths. Language. People. Situations.

Dear user. English is a language. It is just another language. You can see, even a child of any age learn English if the child is native English speaker. This happens because the child is always "with" English. You just have to make sure you are always "with" English. Take care.

I can't remember anything for long time My memory is looking not working so what I do?

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Memory can be trained to some extent if you practise . Research-based strategies to boost your memory and keep it strong 7 Strategies for Remembering 1. Become interested in what you're learning. We're all better remembering what interests us. Few people, for example, have a difficult time remembering the names of people they find attractive. If you're not intrinsically interested in what you're learning or trying to remember, you must find a way to become so. 2. Find a way to leverage your visual memory. You'll be surprised by how much more this will enable you to remember. For example, imagine you're at a party and are introduced to five people in quick succession. How can you quickly memorize their names? Pick out a single defining visual characteristic of each person and connect it to a visual representation of their name, preferably through an action of some kind. Remember: Memory is predominantly visual. 3. Create a mental memory tree. If you're trying to memorize a large number of facts, find a way to relate them in your mind visually with a memory tree. Construct big branches first, then leaves. Branches and leaves should carry labels that are personally meaningful to you in some way, and the organization of the facts ("leaves") should be logical.. 4. Associate what you're trying to learn with what you already know. It seems the more mental connections we have to a piece of information, the more successful we'll be in remembering it. This is why using mnemonics. Write out the items to be memorized over and over and over. 5. When reading for retention, summarize each paragraph in the margin. This requires you to think about what you're reading, recycle it, and teach it to yourself again. Even take the concepts you're learning and reason forward with them; apply them to imagined novel situations, which creates more neural connections to reinforce the memory. 6. Do most of your studying in the afternoon. Though you may identify yourself as a "morning person" or "evening person" at least one Study. suggests your ability to memorize isn't influenced as much by what time of day you perceive yourself to be most alert but by the time of day you actually study—afternoon appearing to be the best. 7. Get adequate sleep to consolidate and retain memories. Not just at night after you've studied but the day, you study as well. Far better to do this than to stay up cramming all night for an exam.

I am 26 years old and have psychological problem that is when ever I see a any girl start to look at her in a bad way. Looking at her body parts and imagining her in bed. That gives me anxiety and depression and I have no more social life. Even I have good capabilities of doing my work but due to lack of focus and concentration I do poor work and bad decision making. I assume my world to be in a structure like I should get up early, my mom should cook good food etc. If something goes I become upset or angry.

Dear lybrate user. Every young adult goes through such a dilemma and therefore trying to take decision yourself is not advisable. Concentration and focus do not come in confused mind. Talk to me. I will tell you hos. First you have to be clear about yourself, career and education. Then concentration and focus comes. Take care.

I consulted a doc and he diagnosed with substance induced psychosis and prescribed me with medication however after taking these medicines for over 2.5 years im feeling better now. Some of the medicines which I take are sizdon pactine solian depakote. Now im off such symptoms however im not able to focus on a single job I lose it in the training itself I basically do not understand the training and will not be able to focus concentrate or understand things during training. I have swapped over 20 jobs just attending training pls give me a solution. And if I start smoking marijuana again will it affect my mental health?

The doctor who has been treating you seems to have done a very good job. Based on what you say, it seems like psychosis induced by Cannabis and persisting even after you have stopped cannabis. So, if you go back to cannabis again the old symptoms have high chances of recurrence. Regarding your inability to pursue job, after training. It needs to be addressed by psychosocial rehabilitation. Discuss with your psychiatrist about your aims, your mental capacity in pursuing job, etc. All the best.

For hair-loss:- if it is male type baldness (receding of hairline backwards and central loss of hair)-- it is due to androgen hormone and is familial and has genetic disposition.---- no treatment as anti-androgen can not be given as it may cause familiarization. You may use antiandrogen cream or lotion containing cyproterone acetate or some other antiandrogen. You may also use minoxidil hair oil or cathepsin hair oil. But the results are poor. If patch loss of hair or loss of hair due to fungal infection or dandruff:- take Fluconazole 150 mg once weekly (every sunday) + once weekly shampooing with Selsun shampoo+ + Shampooing by Fluconazole shampoo on other days + local use of cotrimazole lotion Diet: Take high protein diet Don't eat egg as it has avidin which antogonises hair-growth promoting vitamin biotin or take egg with biotin Take green vegetables, salad and fruits Vitamins: TAKE BIOTIN 1/2 TABLET TWICE DAILY FOR 1 YEAR Excess of Vitamin A may cause hairloss while optimal dose increses hair growth.

Everyone wants to be liked and accepted, but many of us spend too much time and energy worrying about what other people think. You might not even realize you're doing it, but these kinds of mental gymnastics are unhealthy and stressful, making us feel unworthy and removing our attention from the present moment. Here are four steps to help you stop worrying about what other people think, designed to help you maintain healthier and happier relationships with yourself and others. 1. Understand why you care. In order to break the cycle, it's important to understand where the energy is coming from. We've been socialized by a culture that sets norms for our belongingness. From birth, we're taught we should act a certain way, dress a certain way, buy certain products, and adhere to certain ideologies to be liked and accepted. Social media brings the popularity contest to a whole new level, where how many friends we have, and how much they" like" us, is now publicly broadcast and recorded. We are stressed and exhausted trying to manage our real and online personas to make sure that people continue to like and accept us. Many of us have spent our whole lives in this cycle, believing that a certain set of actions would bring us acceptance, only to repeatedly find that this is not the case. This is a form of social conditioning that we must now give ourselves permission to release! 2. Learn this mantra: What Other People Think About Me Is None of My Business! The root of the problem with caring about what people think about you is that you're attaching yourself to an outcome that you have absolutely no control over. That’s right, you have NO CONTROL over what people say, do and think about you! You can have the best intentions, or you can do something ridiculous: It doesn’t matter. You do not control the way people will respond, just as they do not control the way you respond to them. The belief that you have any ownership of or control over people’s opinions about you comes from a place of ego. The reality is that what other people think about you is none of your business! Take a moment and begin to process and accept this perspective. See how the mantra makes you feel, and note the resistance you might feel from your ego. This is normal. (In fact, with all this time spent worrying and managing expectations, this mantra can feel downright strange at first!) 3. Direct the energy to something positive. This new perspective frees up an immense amount of time and energy to live in the NOW and experience your authentic flow. It also breaks the cycle of conditioning that if you could only do X, say Y, and buy Z, people would like and accept you. Deep inside we know that true acceptance comes from within. So instead of caring so much if someone might be talking about you behind your back. Breathe, repeat your mantra, and then direct the excess energy towards something positive, like following your passion and doing what you love! And if you don’t know what you're passionate about, go and find out! Try a creative new activity, such making art, dancing, playing music, building something, or frolicking outside. You'll be amazed at how happy and free you feel when you spend time doing what you love instead of worrying about what other people think! 4. Practice daily self-love and acceptance. When you're living and creating from a place of genuine love and acceptance, you will know that what other people do, say, and think about you really has nothing to do with you and everything to do with them. If you don’t like what they have to say about you, you can walk away knowing you are being true to yourself. A regular, daily practice of self-love and self-acceptance is key for releasing attachment to outcomes and maintaining happy, healthy relationships. For many people, this journey begins with meditation, breath-work, yoga, eating healthy, spending time in nature, and creating art. No matter what you do, make sure to do something that reminds you how much you love yourself every day. As you feel more self-love and self-acceptance, you will attract more of it into your space. This is a life-long mission, not an instant transformation that happens overnight, so please be kind and forgive yourself if you fall back into the cycle of worrying about what other people think. If you find yourself feeling attached to their opinions of you, just remember that they, like you, are walking a long journey of internal healing and growth, and that their attitudes are unique and personal to them. And truly none of your business! Hope this suggestion would help you. Regards,
