Dear , I can understand your problem. Psychiatric problems are always treated with a combination of medicines, psychotherapy and counseling. You are taking medicines but not supplementing it with psychotherapy and counseling. In fact, psychotherapy and counseling will help you to quit the medicine and continue without medicines. Please contact me with every detail and I will help you. Take care.

If you want to live with her, then get a better job and accommodation. That is a very reasonable ask, really. Anyway, you are way too young to think of marriage and even if you do so now, you must make proper plans. Ideally, you must get everyone's support too. By the time you grow up some, you may change your mind about a lot of things. If after a few years of working,earning, saving, getting better accommodation you can decide if this is your true love. Talk to the girl and if she agrees with what I am saying, I am sure you will do the sensible thing. Both of you must be on the same page about your future. With time even your family members may change their mind. So, be patient and in the meantime get things done.

First of all you don't manage people, you relate to them. Now this is very important: learning to live with people and to love them too. The ultimate test of a personality is in the social context: what happens to us when we are with people? A greater test than that is when we are with members of the opposite sex. And the greatest test is of course what happens to us when we bed and board with a member of the opposite sex in marriage! It is really very simple: according to the relationship we enjoyed or not at home (which is the nursery of relating to people), we will tend to behave in the same fashion in society. Very simply pit: we must love other people as much as we love ourselves. Love is measured in terms of the time we are willing to give someone else. Therefore time is precious and time management is really very precious. You must learn to manage time by balancing urgency versus importance: urgency always takes precedence over importance. Now for your memory enhancement: 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 are 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. Now take you pick!

You are depressed due to a reason -jobless/ home and your partner issues. You need to take counselling to learn coping skills. CBT is also helpful

You could be subjected to abuse in your early past or childhood. That psychological pain needs relief. Thats why you feel physically self inflicted pain is a relief. That is why you could be suffering from micro depressive episodes as well. Some people go on to develop borderline personality disorder with lots of relationship problems. Consult your psychiatrist for a resolution of the same.

Hello sir sometime it happens to me I easily get irritated or I easily get angry without any reasons or when someone can not understand me what I am trying to say so sometimes I did not tell my feelings with anyone. What should I do?

Dear Lybrate user, Anger and aggression are emotions. Anger comes when you become irritated. Irritation happens when you don't like something, or when something is repeated. As anger is an emotion, it should be vent out. You should be able to throw anger out instead of controlling it. But more perfect will be, know the frustrating situations and stop being emotional. If practiced properly, you will not get irritated at those circumstances at all. Those techniques are much easier to understand. Take care.

As your father is suffering from depression and is expressing suicidal ideas, he needs urgent care and treatment. Kindly consult psychiatrist. And also it is well known that chronic medical illnesses have depression associated with them. Also don't leave him alone and be with him.

Dr. The thing is I have been living alone for about 8 year alone far from my family. I visit them once a year for like 2 or 3 weeks. I am not married yet but I am in a relationship since 2009. At the beginning everything was going well with him and my family too. But now I do not want to be with him. It is being 3 years almost since I lost my feelings for him. I could not break up with him because my mom wants me to merry him as soon as possible. Last year I met a man. And I had an affair with him cause I wanted to be happy. I wanted someone whom I want. He never told me that he was married but I found it latter that hr is married and have two kids. But I could not leave him. I just love him so much. Even from this relationship with him o could not find happiness and all this marrying someone else and being in love with someone I can never get and family forcing me to get married is just killing me inside. I am so sure that I will never live a happy life if I merry the one my mom wants me to. But I never do anything my mom do not want to. Even doing a teaching course is what my parents wanted me to do. I never wanted to be a teacher. But I am doing this for my parents. What I feel is that my life is falling apart. I never deserve to have what I want. And I have changed a lot. I have being so careless about everything even to my self. I do not want to eat, I do not want to see people and have be with them I do not want to have fun. I just love being alone in my room. Being aline makes me more comfortable than being with people. My mom pointed out that I can not control my anger now and I know that too. I get emotional with simple simple thing and I cry alot. I do not know why. Getting angry and being sad always. I just get these feeling out nowhere. It is like I know nothing about my self. I can not control me. The one I had an affair with also love so dearly. I know that and that is the reason ge could not tell me about his marriage. He tried to tell me about it later but I did not believe him aa it is something I never wanted to believe. But now everything is in front of me but I can not leave him and he do not want ro leave me too. I could merry him as his second wife too but my family will never alow it as it will bring bad names to my family and they say that once a cheater always a cheater and I do not believe this. I know this change in my behaviour is not a good thing. But I can not and I could not change it. Another thing is that I never share my feelings with others cause in my heart I believe that no one understands me. No one will ever understand me. Dr. Could you help me or give me some suggestions that I could change my self and be like a happy girl I was before. Thank you.

Try to note down your priority and expectation of your life. Than try to fulfill your desire urself. No other person can understand you better than urself. Your current relation is based on false information. So try to avoid it. Start fresh life with any new life partner. Try to remain busy. Enjoy any small good things.

As is evident, good control of diabetes & blood pressure is very important. Take adequate measures to reduce stress in your life, in general eyelid flicker could be a sign of tiredness, lack of sleep, overwork, too much travel, inadequate or inappropriate food, and so on. Usually, it is a minor & vague sign of general debility. Correct the above states, if any, in your present lifestyle. In addition, wash your closed eyes gently with cold (not chilled) water, eat well (as appropriate for your diabetes & blood pressure) and get some rest. Inform if there is no improvement with these measures.

DAA, DNB
Pulmonologist, Bangalore
Hi. I understand your concerns. Stop smoking before it causes you any more harm. It should be done best with will power. Or consult a pulmonologist for the same. You might be having bronchitis due to smoking injury that is the reason for your cough. You will need to undergo pulmonary function test which is needed for diagnosis and also to assess severity of bronchitis based on which treatemnt can be started. Hope your questions were answered. Thanks.

Worked in Dubai for 9 years and now back to india but working in low salary and on top of that handling lots of humiliation and work burden. Cant adjust in this situation and in house also too much money pressure to handle and give answer to all about salary matter. Kindly help to maintain my balance in mind and also too much confuse to what to do and what not do in solving all this issue. Cant sleep and indulge in too much thinking.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

You have probably lived a fairly good life and given your family some luxuries while you worked in Dubai for 9 years! They would have gotten used to that and are feeling the pinch now because money is not flowing as much. At work the same thing is probably happening. You might have had some dignity and respect in your job in Dubai but that will never be the same here. You will have to make everyone understand your financial crunch and get their cooperation. At work you will have to do likewise: accept the situation and learn to enjoy the same. If this is not possible, you may have to return to the Gulf. One other option for you to consider is to enter into the many networking businesses, if you have the investment capital. Now you have to choose very carefully. I know of a few that can become your primary source of income or even supplementary source, by working in your spare time. If interested, get in touch with me. Most people who return prematurely from a foreign jaunt do so because of some idea of starting a business. If you have not done that, then this is your best alternative.
