Dementia - 7 Warning Signs You Must Be Careful About!

Dementia - 7 Warning Signs You Must Be Careful About!

Dementia is a disorder characterized by a decline in mental capabilities in a person. It is primarily caused by Alzheimer's disease but can also be caused by damage to the brain from an injury or a stroke. The cells of the brain fail to communicate with each other in dementia. People suffering from dementia have difficulties in taking part in regular activities as their mental functioning is impaired.

The major symptoms of dementia are problems in recalling, ineffective communication, inability to concentrate and impaired reasoning abilities. It may also affect the short-term memory of a person when he/she may be unable to keep track of his/her belongings. Dementia can be progressive where the symptoms gradually increase with age.

With age, the mind also goes through slowing. Being the control organ for all other organs, this leads to issues with thinking, cognition, communication, memory, etc. Dementia is a condition which is a combination of all these; it is not a disease per se, but a symptom complex.

Causes:

  1. Alzheimer’s disease, a neurodegenerative process
  2. Brain injury (accidents, trauma, etc.)
  3. Stroke
  4. Huntington’s disease

Except in acute trauma cases, as a degenerative process, there are early symptoms of dementia which can be watched for. It is even possible to delay the progress of dementia by keeping an eye out for these symptoms.

  1. Recent memory loss: A person may not be able to recall what happened a couple of days prior but can clearly recollect events from the past. This may be gradual in onset and gets progressive. There could be difficulty in recollecting things like where the TV remote is, where the phone is, where the door keys are, etc.  Some people could also ask for the same information repeatedly, as they are not able to retain information.
  2. Loss of learned behaviour: Things which were taught or learned like how to arrange things at the table, how to do basic things on the computer, organising medical kits, etc., might be forgotten. The person finds these more taxing than before and requires more help in doing them. Learning new tasks slowly becomes difficult too, as they find it difficult to get orderliness or process thinking in them.
  3. Mood changes: While depression with onset of dementia is very common, the person also could have drastic mood changes, which would be noticeable only to close family and friends
  4. Forgetting names: It is another major symptom. Whether it is of people or objects or animals, there is difficulty in recollecting names
  5. Personality alterations: Since dementia affects judgment and reasoning, a shy person could be seen to become outgoing gradually
  6. Difficulty following storylines: While most elderly people are adept at telling stories, those affected with dementia could be seen to be gradually losing track of the storylines. This could be true of their own storytelling or even television serials or movies.
  7. Repeating tasks: Given the short-term memory loss, they tend to repeat things which were just done, both in actions and words.
  8. Feeling lost: Recent memory loss also affects things like forgetting why they headed out, spacial disorientation, whether they had a snack or not, etc.
  9. Forgetting day to day things: Regular tasks like paying utility bills, reading newspaper or books, cooking up small dishes, tend to become difficult than they were. This is a combined effect of short-term memory loss and loss of orderliness. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Psychiatrist.

Hello lybrate-user. I can understand from you that it must be tough living with this condition for so long. And you also seem to be concerned about taking medications. I would say that nowadays there are psychological interventions which can help someday who has anxiety and depression as a condition. You need to start meeting a mental health professional who would tell you whether you would require medication or not. Psychologists are trained to deal with most of the psychological problems. It would be good idea to get in touch with psychologist soon.

I can understand what you are going through. We all face such situations in life and feel sad but losing hope and sacrificing our life is not the answer. We have many other things and people in life and also somebody whom you have lost would also not have approved this thought of yours. You need to live with beautiful memories the person has given you and do the things he/she has left behind incomplete and also fulfill your responsibilities in other areas of your life. You can do it and if it seems difficult then connect an expert psychotherapist to open your heart out and for guidance and support. Move on and live life.

1. Start your stop smoking plan with =S T A R T S- Set a date for quitting smoking.

Remind yourself why you want to quit. Focus on your reasons for quitting like health benefits, improved appearance, financial effect and enhancement of self esteem 4. Get out of tempting situations like someone smoking close by 5. Reward yourself- reinforce your victories whenever you triumph over a craving. Give yourself a reward to keep yourself motivated 6.

Keep your hands busy like squeezing balls, handling pencils, paper clips to satisfy the need for tactile stimulation 8.

I met a girl few months ago on social site. We spoke friendly way for someday. She started calling me, texting me every day, one fine day she called me up in the morning. First time I went to meet her she told me that she wants to come home with me, I was not very interested in her so I denied and dropped her home at night. Then she started calling me, texting me every day, she called me and came to my house, this time she kissed me (No intercourse at all) and started flirting with me. I don't know why but I also started responding to her. After that we started meeting up in week ends for next 3-4 weeks, talking over the phone at night. But before that I had lover so I told this girl that I am planning to get married soon. So I told lets not love or do marriage and she told me its fine we can speak upto your marriage and we can drop. But I did not say exact marriage date to her. I told a date month after. But after that she found it from my fb id that I got married a month before. So now she feel cheated I guess. So she is black mailing that I will say everything to your wife and destroy your life. What should I do? I apologized for everything to her and still she is ruining my life and I feel like hell.

Anxiety-induced Premature Ejaculation

MD - Psychiatry, Diploma in Child & Adolescent Psychology , MBBS
Psychiatrist, Pune
Anxiety-induced Premature Ejaculation

Premature ejaculation is a condition that causes a lot of stress, especially as you age. In order to know more, you should understand premature ejaculation well. It is a condition wherein one ejaculates before or immediately after sexual penetration, with little or no sexual stimulation. This leads to poor sexual performance and anxiety issues.

Causes:

There is no specific cause for premature ejaculation. Regular issues such as sex with a new partner of having sex after a long time might trigger this condition. Factors such as anxiety, stress and guilt may also result in premature ejaculation. It may also be caused by medical issues such as an injury to the genitals or other hormonal problems.

In this article, the factor that will be focused on is anxiety that most often leads to premature ejaculation. Being anxious or nervous about one’s sexual performance can result in this condition. Your mind may be preoccupied with whether your partner is enjoying the entire experience or about the proper functioning of the genitals. Both these factors bring about anxious thoughts and thus, may make one unable to control his ejaculation. One ultimately stops focusing on the entire experience and starts to overthink.

How to Control Anxiety Before and During Intercourse:

  1. Go Again: If it happens the first time, then shoot again. Try another round and you may find that you are able to control your ejaculation better.

  2. Be honest about it: Being honest about the entire situation will reduce anxiety about the performance. Your partner may be understanding and would process the situation better. Thus, with subsequent sexual encounters, you are sure to get better.

  3. Take matters in your own hands: If the partner is aware of all the limitations, one can use other methods such as oral sex or other foreplay methods (read fingering and fisting) to satisfy her.

  4. Decide if You Need More or Less Foreplay: For some guys with PE, foreplay increases anxiety, because they become more and more anxious as they wait for the event. For others, foreplay decreases anxiety, because it gives them a chance to relax before the event takes place. Find out what helps you and talk to your partner about it

If none of the above mentioned methods seem to work, you can fall back on medications.

Certain medications such as antidepressants are used in the treatment of premature ejaculation. They use a two pronged approach; on one hand they reduce anxiety and on the other, this very trait leads to delayed ejaculation, which in turn helps remedy the situation.

Controlling Premature Ejaculation:

PE can hit you at any age. But the good news is that when your PE is caused by anxiety, it’s something you can also reduce by using the tips above to help control your anxiety and get used to the lovemaking experience. You will need an understanding partner, but most partners are understanding when they care about you, and eventually you’ll be able to fully unlock the sexual prowess inside you. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.

Not having a job is very serious issue for a person who is planning to marry. It seems your fiance needs time - give him time . Your constant attempt to speak to him , may be embarrassing for him . Be his strength. If he really cares , he will call when he is comfortable.

How much exercise do people over age 50 really need? How much alcohol can someone over 50 safely drink, and does our tolerance change with aging?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
People over 50 can do considerable exercise and workouts, if they are not suffering from any ailments. In that case they will need to check with their physician to see what is permissible. Even if they are not allowed vigorous exercise, daily brisk walking for at least half an hour is excellent. There is an exercise called High Intensity Interval Exercise, which is for a 20 minute duration only and is excellent for various reasons. One can also follow the XBX Plan which is followed by the Royal Canadian Air force and it is excellent too. You can check for both of these on Google. A man can consume two drinks a day, if he is fit. Yes, as one ages the tolerance will decrease and he will need less to create a buzz.

lybrate-user, 9-10 hours of sleep is little on the higher side. You can try studying in intervals. You must also exercise to remain fit and healthy which will enable you to stay focused and study better.

I had a lover, I cheated him because I got someone better. He don't know that I'm still cheating him. What should I do?

Psychiatrist, Vadodara
You are basically cheating yourself because if you continue this way then after sometime you will be full of guilt. Please sit down with yourself and have a clear-cut self-talk and listen to your inner voice. I also feel that probably its the result of the way you have been brought up. You lack emotional satisfaction and unconditional love. Wake up and have a clear mind. If you still don't understand then connect directly with a relationship expert for guidance before you fall in soup. All the best.

Mr. lybrate-user you are just 24 years. In my opinion I feel you have few more years to enjoy yourself, be secured for a job and get married. You have time and age on your side to be not worried about all these immediately. And regarding financial stabilisation it is tough to achieve because human mind is never settled in that. So my advice is to be happy and enjoy life at this moment.

I think you get into a panic mode during the exams and develop the jitters. It is best for you to do deep breathing for a few minutes and you will calm down immediately. There is a good exercise that helps to lower panic immediately: block your closed lips with your index finger and blow tight against your cheeks and hold that breath for some time and then release it. Your heart beat will slow down instantly and you will have a calmer demeanor to approach your exam paper. A lot of the reason may be true because of stress perhaps. But you may work on the following to help you: 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.
