You have already undergone bypass surgery and on regular drugs for prevention of further blocks. They are done so that you can live independently. Your cardiologist might have counselled you about vigorous physical activities or restrictions. Children may not be able to do much for your emotional loneliness, even if they live with you. You seem to be computer literate. Get into some group online who have undergone similar surgery and undergoing treatment like you. They will be able to motivate you and even consolel you about headache and chest pain. Consult your cardiologist again with these symptoms, either she/he may prescribe an anxiolytic or antidepressant or refer you to a psychiatrist.

Your mind is obviously very distracted. If this distraction is because of stress as is normally the case, then you will need to attend to that and your concentration will happily return. It may also be that you are not interested in your studies because it may not be suitable to your aptitude. Please meet with a career guidance counselor and do some aptitude tests that will also determine what your natural skills are and then choose an appropriate career and course. If you are not made for long study courses then you could choose to do something technical, instead. I also suspect that the adolescent issues with regard to hormones may have affected your ability to concentrate and have interest in your studies too. 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. You must be absolutely sure that you are not bored because of these influences to make a radical decision and quit studies. You will regret later and then the time cannot be turned back. For your problems with concentration here are a few guidelines: 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 or coconut 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 you and the family go for counseling too. Whatever happens, do not rush your decision and make it with your parents involved and some close teachers who know you well.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!

Stay away from him, do not get involved emotionally or physically. Someone who can not be with you but wants you physically is doing damage to you and is actually a very shallow person. Consult with me for counseling.

Dear lybrate user, if appears that this lady does not have any physical ailment. The psychiatric medicines have not helped much. In such situation it is very important to understand the motive behind her behaviour. It might be" attention seeking personality disorder" in which the person tries very hard to seek attention from others, at any cost. There are a number of reasons why the person needs this attention so desperately. To know more about all this, take her to a counsellor. The counsellor might be able to understand her behaviour after talking to her. I think she will need counselling along with some medicines. Take her to the counsellor, who can start her therapy. You may have to consult a psychiatrist again for medicines because a counsellor cannot prescribe medicines. The counsellor and the psychiatrist will work together to help this lady. All the best.

Welcome to Lybrate. Alcohol addiction also comes under abuse and addiction. Lack of appetite, anger, aggression etc are withdrawal symptoms. But nothing to worry. If you’re ready to stop the substance and willing to get the support you need, you can recover from addiction and abuse —no matter how bad the addiction or how powerless you feel. The first step in treating addiction is accepting that you have a problem. Confronting an addiction and accepting responsibility for your actions isn’t easy. But it’s a necessary step on the road to treatment and recovery. You should then consult a psychiatrist / psychologist who fill follow this treatment. 1. Detoxification using medicines. 2. Behavior modification with the help of therapies. 3. Counseling. 4. Medication to sustain and 5. Long term support. These given steps are essential for any addict to get effectively rid of addiction. Therefore, you need to stick to the treatment plan and cooperate with your psychiatrist / psychologist. Take care.

Hai I am a medical student. Doing my first year. I can't concentrate on my studies properly due to have load. How can I approach each subjects. Anatomy, physiology and biochemistry. How will I study effectively. Seniors told study only important.. Is it enough?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Obviously you are not planning your studies well. Even if you are overloaded, it is possible to carefully make a timetable and follow that meticulously and complete your portions. Please see if these points help: Hints For Planning A Better Study Schedule 1. Plan a schedule of balanced activities. College life has many aspects which are very important to success. Some have fixed time requirements and some are flexible. Some of the most common which you must consider are: • FIXED: Eating FLEXIBLE: Sleeping • Organizations vs Recreation • Classes vs Study • Church vs Relaxation • Work vs Personal Affairs 2. Plan enough time in studying to do justice to each subject. Most college classes are planned to require about three hours of work per week per credit in the course. By multiplying your credit load by three you can get a good idea of the time you should provide for studying. Of course, if you are a slow reader, or have other study deficiencies, you may need to plan more time in order to meet the competition of college classes. 3. Study at a regular time and in a regular place. Establishing habits of study is extremely important. Knowing what you are going to study, and when, saves a lot of time in making decisions and retracing your steps to get necessary materials, etc. Avoid generalizations in your schedule such as “STUDY.” Commit yourself more definitely to “STUDY HISTORY” OR “STUDY CHEMISTRY” at certain regular hours. 4. Study as soon after your lecture class as possible. One hour spent soon after class will do as much good in developing an understanding of materials as several hours a few days later. Check over lecture notes while they are still fresh in your mind. Start assignments while your memory of the assignment is still accurate. 5. Utilize odd hours during the day for studying. The scattered one- or two-hour free periods between classes are easily wasted. Planning and establishing habits of using them for studying for the class just finished will result in free time for recreation or activities at other times in the week. 6. Limit your blocks of study time to no more than 2 hours on any one course at one time. After 1 ½ to 2 hours of study you begin to tire rapidly and your ability to concentrate decreases rapidly. Taking a break and then switching to studying some other course will provide the change necessary to keep up your efficiency. 7. Trade time – don’t steal it. When unexpected events arise that take up time you had planned to study, decide immediately where you can find the time to make up the study missed and adjust your schedule for that week. Note the weekend evenings - most students can afford no more than one of them for recreation, but may wish to use different evenings on different weeks. This “trading agreement” provides for committing one night to study, but rotating it as recreational possibilities vary. 8. Provide space for review. That is, a regular weekly period when you will review the work in each of your courses and be sure you are up-to-date. This review should be cumulative, covering briefly all the work done thus far in the quarter. 9. Practice self-recitation as a device for increasing memory. Organize your notes in a question and answer form and think in terms of questions and answers about the main ideas of the material as you review weekly. When preparing for exams, try to predict the questions the instructor may ask. 10. Keep carefully organized notes on both lectures and assignments. Good notes are one of the best bases for review. Watch for key ideas in lectures and try to express them in your own words in your notes. Watch for headings and bold face type in your reading to give you clues for main ideas in your notes. Take down careful notes as to exactly what assignments are made and when they are due

Your senior has also worked with you for 20 years and knows you well for these many years. If he is taking away jobs but not giving you any in return, then maybe you have not been performing satisfactorily. Today there are a lot of youngsters ready to do more and for less salary. This therefore threatens the senior people who have put in many years of service. Although experience is very useful, if you are replaceable by others for less, then your job is most likely threatened. So you should either brush up and perform better or learn something new to favor your job. In today?s world there is a lot happening in the work arena and new updates are happening quite frequently. You may also talk to this senior and find out what is happening to your jobs and why is he doing what he is doing. Then he will know that you are aware and he will have to give you reasonable answers and be careful around you too. You don?t have to go mad depending up on your job and skill set. If you are in demand job wise you need not worry too much.
