Continue thyroxine. Let her practice yogic therapy and relaxation. Avoid controlling her. Ignore, but respect her. She will recover if she concentrates well in her recovery. You join her practice a relaxed lifestyle than tense life.

Whenever you will try and unable to change people, places or situations, you will get angry. Please try to change yourself not others. Do daily meditation/walk and yoga think positive live life one day at a time, not in the past or future.

I hope you are having a relxing sleep at night. Follow simple suggetsions - donot study on the bed, try reading on a chair and table - if you donot mind, try keeping a pen in hand to write down things as notes to be used later on. - when feeling sleepy, revise something you already read. - take a hot water bath before you start studying - take a beak of 20 min after every 40-45 min spell of studying. If this is not working then you might need some medications to keep you focused and awake. Get back to me in that case.

Relax, dear lybrate user. I think you are exaggerating small things into greater proportions. Of course, I understand that your father must not have uttered that word even when you are alone. The only thing you can do with this is to forgive him and explain him how you hurt because of him, and also make a humble reqeuest not to do it again. Then, the people in front of whom your father used that word are busy with their life businness and issues. In fact, both your father and other people must have forgotten that incident. Moreover, people are more aware than ever before that human beings are equally susceptible to have psychological problems as they have physical diseases. Hence, the social stigma attached with mental illness is loosing its value, so your worry about all these things are only waste of time and energy. Since you are only 21, you must be an unmarried. Then, where is the necessity to use tadafil for erectile dysfunction. If you tried sex with a woman and failed, there may arise a question of erectile dysfunction. I think it might be your self-medication which is not a healthy trend. One or 2 sessions of counseling will make a difference, I feel, get an appoint with a psychlogical counsellor at the earliest.

Hi there ~ Early warning signs of schizophrenia In some people, schizophrenia appears suddenly and without warning. But for most, it comes on slowly, with subtle warning signs and a gradual decline in functioning long before the first severe episode. Many friends and family members of people with schizophrenia report knowing early on that something was wrong with their loved one, they just didn’t know what. In this early phase, people with schizophrenia often seem eccentric, unmotivated, emotionless, and reclusive. They isolate themselves, start neglecting their appearance, say peculiar things, and show a general indifference to life. They may abandon hobbies and activities, and their performance at work or school deteriorates. The most common early warning signs of schizophrenia include: Social withdrawal Hostility or suspiciousness Deterioration of personal hygiene Flat, expressionless gaze Inability to cry or express joy Inappropriate laughter or crying Depression Oversleeping or insomnia Odd or irrational statements Forgetful; unable to concentrate Extreme reaction to criticism Strange use of words or way of speaking While these warning signs can result from a number of problems—not just schizophrenia—they are cause for concern. When out-of-the-ordinary behavior is causing problems in your life or the life of a loved one, seek medical advice. If schizophrenia or another mental problem is the cause, treatment will help. Signs and symptoms of schizophrenia There are five types of symptoms characteristic of schizophrenia: delusions, hallucinations, disorganized speech, disorganized behavior, and the so-called “negative” symptoms. However, the signs and symptoms of schizophrenia vary dramatically from person to person, both in pattern and severity. Not every person with schizophrenia will have all symptoms, and the symptoms of schizophrenia may also change over time. Delusions A delusion is a firmly-held idea that a person has despite clear and obvious evidence that it isn’t true. Delusions are extremely common in schizophrenia, occurring in more than 90% of those who have the disorder. Often, these delusions involve illogical or bizarre ideas or fantasies. Common schizophrenic delusions include: Delusions of persecution – Belief that others, often a vague “they,” are out to get him or her. These persecutory delusions often involve bizarre ideas and plots (e. G. “Martians are trying to poison me with radioactive particles delivered through my tap water”). Delusions of reference – A neutral environmental event is believed to have a special and personal meaning. For example, a person with schizophrenia might believe a billboard or a person on TV is sending a message meant specifically for them. Delusions of grandeur – Belief that one is a famous or important figure, such as Jesus Christ or Napolean. Alternately, delusions of grandeur may involve the belief that one has unusual powers that no one else has (e. G. The ability to fly). Delusions of control – Belief that one’s thoughts or actions are being controlled by outside, alien forces. Common delusions of control include thought broadcasting (“My private thoughts are being transmitted to others”), thought insertion (“Someone is planting thoughts in my head”), and thought withdrawal (“The CIA is robbing me of my thoughts”). I hope this helps. Take care and have a lovely day.

I'm in a relationship from three years I want to marry her but due to inter caste she directly said no to me. I'm crazy for her I loved her more than my parents I have neglected everything for her but she doesn't care. Now I can't live without her I wanted to commit suicide but my parents have lots of hope from me. I can't study every time my. Brain think about her please help me I have my exams after two days.

I wish she had told you about the caste problem before you fell in love with her. It now looks like this is a serious reason and her parents and her community may not allow her to get married to anyone outside of her caste. You have to accept this reality and move on. If you tried any other means this might jeopardize her life and yours unnecessarily. Nobody is worth dying for unless you were in an attempt to save them. Your life is very precious and you must want to live for your own sake first. Your parents will be devastated if you did something foolish, and all their efforts to bring you up will have gone completely to waste. It only shows that you can love a person who has just come into your life more than the people who gave you life and spent so many years bringing you up! Surely you do not mean that? Keep the good memories of this girl and learn to live without her. You will find a very suitable girl when you are well educated and a great success in life. For you to feel this level of despair it can only mean that there is some weakness in your personality. This is something for you to work on with a counselor and develop a good personality. If however, this is final, then remove all associations of hers: gifts, notes, letters, cards, emails, and any reminders to get her out of your system, not just the mind. Keep the good memories but don’t indulge in them. Get back to your old pals and revive those contacts. Normally when we get a girl friend, we drop all our friends and live exclusively with her. This is not a good thing to do, generally. So do get back to them and get into good social circles. They will help you get over her. Do not talk ill or malign your ex to your friends, whatever was the reason. That is unfortunately a very bad habit many of us have – we must still respect her reputation and treat her with dignity. Since this break up is so serious for you that suicidal thoughts are also plaguing you, do meet up with a counselor and talk about your feelings, openly. This is not the end of the world and she is not the only girl in life. You will find another but learn not to repeat the mistakes that led to the breakup. This time choose wisely and behave like a true gentleman.

Family problems are part of everyone's lives. You need to change the way you respond to the problems. Always remember that some things will be within your control to change and some will not be within your control. Best approach is to leave these things to get sorted out on their own and focus your energy on what you can change. Look at your options, weigh their pros and cons and choose what seems best to you. Not everything will be clear always. Some things will be ambiguous, that's the beauty of life. If you can prepare yourself for such situations instead of feeling anxiety or fear. Please click on consult if you have any questions.

Since childhood i'm always lost in my own world with no much friends. I find difficulty in focusing any kind of task. I get lost in my own thoughts in middle of any conversation or any task. I forget things very often. I am too slow in doing any work. I lose interest on things very soon, managing , knowing ,recalling things in detail and finishing assigned task is a burden for me. Whereas others do it easily. I also get involved so much on task dat I forget to eat drink completely unaware of the surrounding n family too totally forgotten. What problem do I have. Is medication helpful in this case. If yes, should I go for homeopathy or allopathic treatment. please help.

Hi, this is regarding my retired dad who in his late 60's started doubting my working mom. After fights raised up he is normal now but he is not agreeing that his doubt was wrong. I am worried that may be again he may raise up with his doubting. Do I need to take him to a psychologist which he would never agree or is there any other medicine to let go off his imaginations? please help.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
I think that his not being occupied is probably bothering him. He may also feel insecure that he is not working whereas his wife is. And anyway a little suspicion is good because of their age: mom should feel elevated that he still has possessive feelings for her! no, there is no need to take him to anybody after he has become normal. I doubt it will rise up again but you need to do something for him. Keep him occupied but not busy all through the day. When mom comes back from work have her give him a lot of attention and love: even a little fussing will do no harm. Give him the importance in all matters of life in the home and around the family. Mom in particular must show him a lot of regard, and play down the fact that he is not earning and she is. Let him still feel that he is the decision maker and is in charge: essentially pander to his ego but do not overdo it. As long as he feels important he will be okay.

I am not sure about what you are referring to but,,, Following expalination and tips are scientifucally proven and if done on a regualr basis will help manage your stress and thus reduce depression. When things does not happen as we wish or people do not behave as we expect that is when out of disappointment, frustration, loneliness, anger, sadness. Etc we react and our mind starts thinking negative thoughts. Changing this pattern of responding to stressful situation requires both persistence and patience. Also you will only be able to work on this out of love and kindness towards you. Strong motivation will go a long way. Writing a statement about how would you want to respond in a similar situation and how will your life and your happiness will change if you do learn to manage your stress and how to respond to it. Once that is clear. Try following things to learn relaxation response which leads to better coping mechanism on a daily basis. To begin with doing guided progressive muscular relaxation before sleeping will help you relax. You could google and download an audio file. I would also suggest you to take a multiple small break to take 3 nice and deep breath while keeping your eyes closed. You could do this while sitting or standing or while even walking or climbing stairs (keep your eyes open in that case). When you take a nice and deep break there is actual physiological change in your body. This will help you to activate parasympathetic nervous system which promotes relaxation and helps you calm down and think more clearly. This will also actually improve your performance in your work. Along with this exercise is one of the best way to relive stress and stay fit. Engage in any kind of physical activity at least 4 times a week. This also helps in stress reduction. Along with this some relaxation exercises as well as engaging in joyful activities such as music, singing, dancing, reading, being in nature, gardening, talking with friends or anything which you enjoy will help reducing stress and rejuvenation of your mind and body. Have good routine for sleep and eating. Lot of research has now proven that sugar is very harmful for our health. Reduce sugar and refined white floor in your diet as much as you could. Along with this also increase consumption of raw vegetables in the form of salad in both the meals of your day. Let me. Know if you need any further help. Hope this helps wishing you very best.

I feel depression from some days and I am student of post graduation now a days I have no interest in study.
The word depressed is a common everyday word. People might say" i'm depressed" when in fact they mean" i'm fed up because i've had a row, or failed an exam, or lost my job" etc. These ups and downs of life are common and normal. Most people recover quite quickly. With true depression, you have a low mood and other symptoms each day for at least two weeks The common symptoms are (few might be present in a person with depression) Feelings of sadness, tearfulness, emptiness or hopelessness Angry outbursts, irritability or frustration, even over small matters Loss of interest or pleasure in most or all normal activities, such as sex, hobbies or sports Sleep disturbances, including insomnia or sleeping too much Tiredness and lack of energy, so even small tasks take extra effort Changes in appetite — often reduced appetite and weight loss, but increased cravings for food and weight gain in some people Anxiety, agitation or restlessness Slowed thinking, speaking or body movements Feelings of worthlessness or guilt, fixating on past failures or blaming yourself for things that aren't your responsibility Trouble thinking, concentrating, making decisions and remembering things Frequent or recurrent thoughts of death, suicidal thoughts, suicide attempts or suicide Unexplained physical problems, such as back pain or headaches consult a psychiatrist and get evaluated.

Hello, there are few food items which helps you in boosting up your memory power, increases focus & concentration, so try to take more of these: 1. Choline: good sources of choline include liver, milk, eggs and peanuts. 2. Vitamin b: b vitamins are not synthesized in the body, and thus need to be obtained from food. B-complex vitamins are water-soluble vitamins, which means that they are not stored within the body. In consequence, the b vitamins need ongoing replenishment. Vitamin b1 (thiamine) rich sources include unrefined grain products, ready-to-eat cereals, meat (especially pork), dairy products, peanuts, legumes, fruits and eggs. Foods that contain high concentrations of vitamin b3 (niacin) in the free form include beans and organ meat, as well as enriched grain and cereal products. While niacin is present in corn and other grains, the bioavailability of the nutrient is much less than it is in protein-rich sources. The role of vitamin b9 (folic acid) during pregnancy is vital to normal development of the nervous system in the fetus. Good sources of folate include liver, ready-to-eat breakfast cereals, beans, asparagus, spinach, broccoli, and orange juice. Animal protein products are a good source of vitamin b12 (cobalamine), particularly organ meats such as kidney or liver. Other good sources are fish, eggs, and dairy products. 3. Vitamin a: the foods highest in vitamin a are any pigmented fruits and vegetables and leafy green vegetables. 4. Zinc: zinc is a very important part of the brain as well; many regions of the brain, such as the cerebellum, and hippocampus have neurons that contain this nutrient. Zinc is needed to maintain normal vitamin a levels in blood plasma. Sources of zinc are meats, certain seafood, whole grains, baked beans, oatmeal, milk (low-fat), cashewnut, almonds, kidney-beans, cheese, peas, spinach, sesame seeds, pumpkin seeds, flaxseeds. Medication: take homoeopathic medicine for increasing memory - anacardium 200/ once daily.

Hello lybrate-user There are many possiblities may be he is busy but those who are in any type of relationship can manage time for their loved ones, once you should talk with him regarding all aspects and if same thing continues then you may consider to end this relation because extending this relation for long time will give you more pain .shift your focus on your career ,on your hobbies, be social ,make friends. When someone in love relation its awesome feeling ,its not stress ,or for tension ,so consider all points. Take care.

Hello, take homoeopathic medication - schwabe's bacopa monierri 1x/ thrice daily and kali phos. 6x/ once at night - take them for 4 weeks. Management: there are few yoga poses which helps in calming your mind and relieves stress. Exercises: practice shavasana or corpse pose as it looks like a dead body. If practiced correctly and with full efforts, can relax every body part, relaxing not only the body but also the mind: spread the legs one to two feet apart, the toes are turned outwards, the heels facing each other, a comfortable distance apart. Bring the arms a little away from the body, palms turned upward. Relax the neck and allow it to turn to the side if it is more comfortable. Close the eyes and focus the attention on the body, breathing normally. Begin focusing each body part and relaxing it, then moving on. Keep the mind focused on relaxation, the breath should be normal. Relax the whole body. (the mind and body are deeply connected. If the mind is occupied by thoughts and worries then the shavasana will be unsuccessful. Therefore one has to acquire the stability of the mind along with the stability of the body.) anuloma involves inhaling through both nostrils together and exhaling each breath alternately between the left and right nostrils. The thumb of the right hand is used to manipulate the right nostril, while the pinky and ring finger are used to control the left nostril. There are many other poses of yoga like balasan, setu bandha sarvangasan, uttanasan, garudasan, savasana, triconasana, viprita karani, marjaryasana, dhyana, bhujangasana, anulom-vilum, pranayam, etc. But first learn these under a qualified yoga-teacher as many poses are prohibited in certain diseases or medical conditions! another stress-buster can be getting involved in any of your hobbies (may be a childhood hobby which you used to enjoy a lot!) - dancing, singing, painting, listening to soothing music, playing musical instruments, etc. (believe me, you would really enjoy doing this alone as well or may be with your friends, kids).
