Hmmm, can understand your problem. Do not worry. Sometime some diseases takes long time for recover. You need to continue the treatment, do regular with your Dr. If you r not feeling good after taking medicine then please inform to the Dr. Need to keep busy to self, always stay with your family / frnds, do not stay alone. Try to avoid your negative thoughts, I know it's difficult but if you keep busy to self then you can easily avoid it. Best luck, have a nice day.

Dear sir/madam, I am 16 year old, I am getting tons of pressure from my tutor for studies, he wants me to score 80% in 10th std but I think he is forcing me and giving lots of work to do. I am not so good student I really work hard to get 70% in 9th std but I got 60%, and now I am stress out and don't know what to do I cannot concentrate in any work. Please suggest me what to do I just cant handle this situation.

More than studying hard, you need to study smart. May be your study methods are suspect. If this tutor is pushing you too much, then you need to talk to your parents and let them talk to him. Sometimes we need to set a higher target to achieve something close to it and perhaps just below it too. It seems that that is what had already happened: when you set yourself a 70% target for the 9th, you managed 60%! you see what I mean? your tutor knows you best and so he may want you to aim higher and if you get something close to it but lower, it is still success. Memory development and methods of enhancing memory are skills your tutor can teach you too. Now that you are entering the 10th grade, it is very important for you to get good marks. The reason I say this is that this marks card will be used for the rest of your life as a document for various verifications. That being the case you do not want to have a marks card that shows you poorly! besides that to get admission in a desirable course in a college or to get into a good institution, you will certainly need a good aggregate. So this entire pressure is for your good. But if you think that this is too much, then do talk to the tutor to teach you better study/memory improvement methods; failing that you can approach your parents.

Dear Doctor, I am facing porn addiction issue, can anyone help me to resolve the issue? Please help me.
Dear, quitting porn addiction is not child play. De-addiction therapy is an option for you. But in my suggestion, the best option would be, quit it now (today) and sustain it with your will power. Motivation therapy and mind power building therapy should help you.

My father is used to alcohol not much but daily 2-3 pegs of 50 ml each. We are afraid of health. Do you think there can b some severe problem?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

Depending on his body mass and age there could be a problem. He may be a drink too much for his age but I cannot say for his size. I am assuming his age to be in the 50 s, if you are already 23. You could ask him to cut down to 2 pegs of 30 ml each.

5 Ways Physiotherapy Helps in Dementia

5 Ways Physiotherapy Helps in Dementia

Dementia is a general classification of a brain disease that causes a long haul and frequently steady abatement in the capacity to think and recall that is sufficiently incredible to influence a man's everyday  functioning. Other normal manifestations incorporate passionate issues, issues with dialect, and a lessening in motivation. An individual's awareness is not influenced. The most common example of dementia is the Alzheimer's disease.

Physiotherapy for Dementia:
A patient with dementia can benefit from physiotherapy regardless of the possibility that the patient can't perceive their own family. Physiotherapy, notwithstanding, can be of good advantage to the individual who has dementia and also their family and parental figures at different stages. The principle explanation behind this is that recovery administrations can help the dementia patient to be as utilitarian as would be prudent for whatever length of time that is conceivable. Here are 5 ways physiotherapy benefits an Alzheimer's patient:

  1. Physiotherapy can keep up the Alzheimer's patient's freedom and mobility as much as one could expect reasonably. A physiotherapist can outline a home activity program and work intimately with relatives to administer to the Alzheimer's patient.
  2. Physiotherapists, as independent experts, embrace much detailed, separately custom-made appraisals of the disorders, action confinements and restrictions imposed upon individuals with dementia.
  3. The caretakers of individuals with dementia regularly show weakness when contrasted with their same aged companions. Physiotherapy helps with diminishing the weight of consideration by instructing caregivers to provide encouragement and upliftment to individuals with dementia.
  4. Patients with dementia are always at a risk of falling down and hurting themselves. Poor balance accounts for the danger of falls. This can be worked upon and improved by physiotherapy driven exercises. Exercise can have a huge and positive effect on behavioral and mental indications of dementia, enhancing psychological capacity and mindset, which can decrease the doses of strong medicines. Special exercise routines are assigned to the patients which help improve their body balance while walking.    
  5. Physiotherapy has crucial influence in advancing and keeping up portability of individuals with dementia. It assumes a basic part in the end of life consideration by overseeing situations, seating and complicated muscle contracture. Individuals with dementia regularly experience issues in communicating pain. Pain influences cognizance, inspiration and reaction to any intervention. Physiotherapists are specialists in recognizing and treating pain in dementia patients and give training to care home staff and caregivers of the patients.

Physiotherapy is very important for dementia patients. Regular physiotherapy sessions are beneficial for patients for improvement in condition.

Dear Lybrate user, I would first like to address the incident of your husband having a fit. Was this the 1st time he had fits or he used to have them earlier as well? It is important to get this investigated in either of the conditions, more so if this was the 1st episode ever. As per your statement, it seems he does not talk much. Is he this way in general as well? We all have individual differences. Some people can talk more whereas others tend to talk less. It is not about being right or wrong, but about the kind of nature a person has. If you think it needs to be dealt with then probably you can discuss with him about the same. Share with him your concern and try to listen to what he has to say rather than just telling him what you want. A healthy discussion is always more fruitful than blaming each other for any problem. Try to reach to a common understanding on the same and spend quality time with each other, even if not much is spoken while you are together. Best wishes.

M.Phill
Psychologist, Chennai
Hi friend all the best. Follow the tips given below you can really do wonders. Relax yourself. Teach what you have learned to someone else. Take regular study breaks after 40-45 mins. Music can also help elevate your mood and motivate to study longer. Make your study space portable. Practice. Practice. Practicing simple answers to past exam questions can help train your brain to retrieve information. Do not stay up all night before exams. Discover new ways to learn. Study in a group- helps to collect new insights & enhances your learning experience. Sq3r strategy to help you concentrate, understand and remember what you are studying. S- survey (look at headings and key points) q- question (what do I already know? what do I want to know?) r-read (read the text) r-recite (try to remember what you have read) r-review (the work you have learned)

For my anxiety problem my doctor prescribed me Inderal and Lonazep MD 0.25mg For 15days. Should I take this medicines...
Hi. Medicines for anxiety should be taken regularly and on time, besides this if stopped suddenly, can lead to withdrawal effects. Being a Homoeopath, can suggest you Homoeopathic medicine which are safe to take without even causing any side-effects! So, you can think of taking them. Here are few asanas which will help you in reducing the anxiety problem. -Sit in the meditation position (cross-legged or heel seat) and put the hands in the lap. The back is straight and the belly relaxed. Stop one minute every thought. Then remain in meditation, thoughts can come and go as they please. All feelings of anger, fear and grief appear and dissolve by themselves. -Dhanurasana: Lie on your stomach with your feet hip-width apart and your arms by the side of your body. Fold your knees and hold your ankles. Breathing in, lift your chest off the ground and pull your legs up and back. Look straight ahead Keep the pose stable while paying attention to your breath. Your body is now taut as a bow. Continue to take long deep breaths as you relax in this pose. But don’t get carried away! Do not overdo the stretch. After 15 -20 seconds, as you exhale, gently bring your legs and chest to the ground. Release the ankles and relax. -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. 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. 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). Medication: Take Bakson’s Calm Aid tablet/ 1 tablet daily once for 4 weeks. And do practice breathing exercises (Pranayam, Anulom-Vilum) and meditation.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. Loosing someone near and dear cause grief and grief related depression is usual. Such depression may last for some days or even weeks. After that it will come down. If you dtill have the depression for more than 2 months, you need online counselling and adjustment therapy. Take care.

4 F's of Stress!

M. S. in Psychotherapy and Counselling
Psychologist, Jaipur
4 F's of Stress!

Fear, anxiety and stress can often lead humans to either escape the situation or fight it by defending themselves. But there are other behaviours that humans turn to when they are under stress. This is not unnatural at all; we all face it at some point in time. What’s more, even dogs revert to the four Fs when under stress. Let us find out what are they and also how to deal with them.

  1. Fight: Fighting back is the natural reaction, which we turn to when we want to defend ourselves. Shouting at someone might give you some confidence for the time being. But again, it is not a permanent solution. We might end up apologising for our behaviour later but do nothing to address the situation that brought about that kind of behaviour.
  2. Flight: This is the escape mode that we turn to when we want to avoid a certain person or scenario, that might lead to stress. However, it must be remembered that, fleeing stress will help in fixing it temporarily. But since the situation remains unchanged, it will keep happening again and again.
  3. Freeze: For some people, the shock is so overwhelming that it becomes difficult for them to react at all. They simply freeze. The person goes into the panic mode and fails to move or say anything.
  4. Fool around: This option seems to be not a very bad idea in times of stress and anxiety depending on exactly what you mean by fooling around. If you can crack a joke at a tensed situation and lighten the mood, it helps immensely. However, if your idea of fooling around is to avoid talking about the situation and instead have fun, talk about other silly things, then it might not be a good idea.

Dealing with stress is not easy, but if you have realised the cause for your stress, your problem is half solved. If it is something you can change, then start working on it. If not, then it is best to let things happen in their own sweet way, while you change your attitude towards it. If you have realised what kind of behaviour your turn to when under stress, it is easier to face the situation. Listen to some of your favourite music, wear clothes that make you feel good and think about the situation and the possible solution later. Don’t let stress get to you, face situations, keep calm and be positive! If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Psychologist.
