I am 48 married to person with schizophrenia for the past 20 years. Handling my daughter difficult though she knows his problems she argues with me. I am suffering handling a pshciatric husband and daughter. Help me. My daughter is going to complete 19 years this December.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

It is very difficult living with a schizophrenic husband especially if he is not cooperative and has frequent breakdowns. If he is functional, that would be a huge blessing. Concerning your daughter, you must remember that she is just been through her teens and will present a lot of problems having to cope with a father who is mentally unstable and a mother who is struggling to cope with her husband. She may have lost a lot of normal parenting and this is her way of expressing her frustration. You need to specially careful with her because she is carrying her father's genes, and her disturbances may precipitate the predisposition in her. In fact, I recommend that you take her for counseling and get some support for her to deal with her situation. The counselor will help you too and give you the necessary guidance to help yourself and your daughter. This is a difficult situation and both of you need help.

Is memory loss always a part of aging? How much loss is considered normal? How much exercise do people over age 50 really need? Do sleep needs change as we age? How much sleep do we need after age 50? I just don't enjoy the things I used to, and I don't feel much like visiting friends or family. Is this part of aging? How much alcohol can someone over 50 safely drink, and does our tolerance change with aging?

Memory loss is gradual pattren in aging process. But in few poeple, its drastic&quick. Its all depends on person's life style, their past h/o tensions n worries or any shock& their reaction towards such incidents. Some times, these factors will not show impact immediately&as degeneration starts organ or system wise, symptoms like these also will begin. That all depends on as I said earlier. After 50's as its initial stage of geriatric period, as usual in many people mood swings, physical health disturbances all will start due to the changed balance in immunity, harmones, biological/physiological functions. So, in this period (actually from younger age onwards, following some ypga/meditatipn/pranayama/breathing exercises will help to ovrcome all these type of problems engaging on your onterested hobby also will do good. In this age, though you feel like to be alone, you should nt be alone. Try to engage in some communitis like charity, old age clubs etc as per your comfort. Mood changes, depression etc all depends on one's life style, relations with family members (like staying away from children, retiring from job which suddenly make a person feel like to isolated or unoccupied. So try to folllow the above measires will help better.

I have smoking habit since 4years. I want to quit smoking without using any nicotine tablets. Can I know what all natural things I have to do in order to quit that habit, and what I should eat or drink to clean my lungs.

If you have the determination to quit, you can do without any medicine/help. Think of sufferings of persons who are smoking. Have good diet and do physical activity.

My father is over 45 and is an active smoker. Recently I have noticed that he coughs (dry) frequently, does this means that he has cancer developing in him? Please tell whether its a symptom or not.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
The dry cough is an effect of excessive smoking. Instead of speculating about the chances of cancer, it is better for him to go for diagnostic testing and ascertain for sure that your concerns are justified. But with BP problems as baggage, he has a far greater concern with harming his heart and other parts of his body. He is well-advised to quit smoking now and if he needs professional help, even admission into a rehabilitation center it is well worth it. In the meantime let him follow these measures, where he will require the entire family's support without any harassment: Ideally that person must want to stop too. There are however things that you can do to help them. It is never too late to change. 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 the desire to want to stop is the most important factor. Then at the times he is inclined to smoke, you can all distract him with something interesting to do including going out. It is important to find out about the ill-effects of smoking to give that person a reason that alarms him 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 he must avoid it like the plague: it is just very bad medicine for him. In fact it is highly toxic too. He will need to stop smoking or consuming any tobacco related items with immediate effect. He should start vigorous exercises, gradually increasing it over a period of time. Do deep breathing exercises every time he feels like smoking (try Yoga), and replace the oral urge with some healthy food substitute to satiate the need. He 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. He may also join Smokers Anonymous in his city where the support is really extraordinary for like-minded people who are also in the same situation. He must keep himself occupied or engaged with interesting activities during the times when it is most tempting. He needs to keep the company of non-smokers for some time i.e. at least for the first 21 days. Above all he should announce it to everyone that he has quit smoking. Here’s a piece of very good advice: even if he accidentally/willfully takes a cigarette, it is not the end of the world – he can start the cessation all over again. He must persevere with the best support until he defeats this addiction. Counseling is very useful in the initial stages and when temptations are at their highest. You must be able to encourage him without nagging him.

I am also taking medha vati of patanjali product. Is it good for brain enhancement. In this it is written that it help in depression. And used as brain tonic and memory enhancer. I do not have depression but I want to improve my brain memory.

BHMS
Homeopath, Secunderabad
Memory improvement happens if you exercise your brain just like when we exercise our body, the muscles and the bones become strong and overall the body become well toned and flexible . Medicines or nutrients do play a role but with out practicing it would not be effective. Develop a habit of revising what ever you read or study. Do creative things like drawing or painting or any hobby of your choice. When the mind is relaxed it can focus in a better way and grasp things more efficiently. Therefore sports or exercise is also essential as it relaxes the mind and the body. Also solve puzzles or mind games to sharpen your brain power. Learn the skills that do not have from others and share your skill with others.

Dear Rajesh, Your father needs to consult a psychiatrist with all his medical reports. All psychiatric treatments take time to become effective. For that you need to consult the psychiatrist repeatedly. Of course you are welcome to change the doctor without discontinuing the treatment by the previous one and taking a referral letter from the previous psychiatrists. Otherwise each one will start with the first line, will not be able to assess you for the effectiveness. No one will be able to go for resistant depression treatment.

If you still have irritation, foreign body sensation in eye please visit eye doctor to ensure no foreign body is present. Frequent blinking helps bring the foreign body to inner corner of eye from where you can pick up the fb. It was good you didn't rub your eyes. The eye twitching is unrelated and in most cases self limiting. Don't worry about it.

I am suffering from marital discord and my wife hardly communicates when my parents are around. She leaves home at her own will. I am not finding any source of happiness in my marriage of 5 years.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
This is a long-standing factor, repeated and confirmed as very critical to sustain a marriage: communication. When there is no communication, there is danger that the union will collapse. You must immediately reach out to a marriage counselor and both of you must attend the sessions. If she is unwilling, you at least go and seek help as to how to make something happen from your side. Ideally, it would best for both to attend, but she may not cooperate like you have indicated. Sometimes you have to take matters in your own hands to do the right things. Passivity under these circumstances is criminal. Be firm but with love. Even when she does not talk, you can initiate conversations in subtle ways, skirting controversial issues and gradually improving and increasing non-threatening dialogues. For example, ignore the non-communication during your parents? visits but as soon as they are gone and she is open to some talking, discuss matters of the house, children, her work or yours, old friends etc. There are so many topics that are easy for conversing about. Your parents, don? t forget, are her in-laws. There is a host of problems between mother-in-law and daughter-in-law universally, that it is referred to as a syndrome. If you discus controversies with her, you will be pressing the wrong buttons. Don? t even bother about your parents being respected, if you want to save your marriage. In fact, you can tell them not to visit for some time until something positive happens between you two. You must be ingenious without it being obvious. If you play the cards right, you can make conducive communication happen in your marriage as though you had never had a problem at all!

Still have to see him everyday after he coldly walked out on me (rather asked me to move out of my house as his parents were living with us). His issues with me were blown out of proportion by his parents resulting in a bad break up. I hv quit my start up with him. Am job hunting. I'm 29 and i'm scared I won't find a good life partner now.

Have self respect, this person doesn't deserve you, also you are fortunate that you didn't marry him, and you got timely reminder. Just relax and move on in life, throw them out of your house and don't give them your house. Don't bow down to his dictates, and understand what would have been the situation if you married him. Be quick, relax you will find good partner and man of your life. If you cant handle yourself meet an expert marriage and relationship coach.For further assistance you can concern me privately.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
I can give you come concentration tips and try them. 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. If you find answer helpful please click on “helpful” tab for knowing my efforts are useful CONCENTRATION TIPS Here’s some tips to get into a state of deep concentration where work / or studies flow easily so that you can do well in examinations/ and or do your work well. 1) Cut Off the Noise Getting into a state of concentration can take at least fifteen minutes. If you are getting distracted every five, you can’t possibly focus entirely on your work. Request that people don’t interrupt you when working on a big project. If you are required to answer phones and drop-in’s immediately, schedule work when the office is less busy. 2) Structure Your Environment The place you work can have an impact on your ability to focus. Try to locate yourself so you are facing potential distractions such as doors, phones or windows. This way you can take a glance to assess sounds that would otherwise break your focus. 3) Clarify Objectives Know what your goal is clearly before you start. If you aren’t sure what the end result is, the confusion will make it impossible to focus. 4) Divide Blobs. If you have a large project that needs work, clearly identify a path that you will use to get started working on it. If the sequence of actions isn’t obvious, it will be difficult to concentrate. Taking a few minutes to plan not only your end result, but the order you will complete any steps, can save hours in wasted thinking. 5) Know the Rules Get clear on what the guidelines are for the task ahead. What level of quality do you need? What standards do you need to follow? What constraints are there? If the rules aren’t clear from the outset, you will slip out of concentration as you ponder them later. 6) Set a Deadline Deadlines have both advantages and disadvantages when trying to force concentration. A deadline can make it easier to forget the non-essential and speed up your working time. If you give yourself only an hour to design a logo, you will keep it simple and avoid fiddling with extravagant designs. Time limits have disadvantages when they cause you to worry about the time you have left instead of the task itself. 7) Break down Roadblocks Roadblocks occur whenever you hit a tricky problem in your work. This can happen when you run out of ideas or your focus wavers. Break down roadblocks by brainstorming or planning on a piece of paper. Writing out your thought processes can keep you focused even if you might become frustrated. 8) Isolate Yourself Become a hermit and stay away from other people if you want to get work done. Unless your work is based on other people they will only break your focus. Create a private space and refuse to talk to anyone until your work is finished. Put a sign on your door to steer away drop-ins and don’t answer your phone. 9) Healthy Body, Sharper Mind What you put into your body affects the way you concentrate. Nobody would expect peak performance if they showed up drunk to work. But if you allow yourself to get chronic sleep deprivation, overuse stimulants like caffeine or eat dense, fatty foods your concentration will suffer. Try to cut out one of your unhealthy habits for just thirty days to see if there is a difference in your energy levels. I’ve found even small steps can create dramatic changes in my ability to focus. 10) Be Patient Before I write an article, I often sit at my desk for a fifteen or twenty minutes before I put finger on the keyboard. During this time I feel a strong urge to leave or do something else. But I know that if I am patient, I’ll stumble upon an idea to write about and enter a state of flow. Without a little patience, you can’t take advantage of flow when it rushed through you. If you need strong concentration I recommend periods of 90-120 minutes. Any less than that and you will waste too much time getting started before the flow can continue. More than this is possible to sustain focus, but you will probably benefit from a quick break. These are the general guidelines for concentration, studying well or doing your job. Regards.

Dear , 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. These feelings may cause physical symptoms, such as a racing heart 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. Yoga and pranayama are very good. In addition to that psychotherapy and awareness also helps. I need to know more about your anxiety so that I will be able to diagnose it properly and provide you tips to overcome and manage your anxiety.

Dear lybrate-user, welcome to lybrate. The duty of your mind is to think. You cannot control your mind's thinking. Once you just leave your mind without diversion, it always end up in negative territory. But certainly you can divert your thinking. You can make your mind to be always positive by engaging in creative activities, hobbies, games and passionate towards whatever you do. Thereby you can reduce your stress and tension also. Once you can do this, loss of proper sleep and stress also can be made normal. Take care.

You may be under some stress from the last two years and have not dealt with it as yet. Short-term memory is a faculty of the left brain, and long-term memory (of which you say you have no problem) 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 calisthenic exercises with some form of counting, regularly.
