Dear doctor. I have sleeping disorder. No matter how much ever I try but I do not get sleep at all. Most of my days and nights goes sleepless. In a day with great difficulty I may manage to get sleep for only 2-3 hours. I am married since 8 months but I am totally ignored by my husband. My husband has even left me to stay with my mother and has no intention to take me back. He comes to meet us every week. But we never spend time together. This attitude of his is putting me in a depression. Whole day and night I keep crying and sulking about it. He doesn't even allow me to work. I don't have any idea what to do? Sometimes I feel like quiting my life. I tried speaking to my husband about this issue many times but he doesn't find this topic important and gives me deaf ears treatment. Which is very hurting. And I feel this is the major reason which is pushing me to sleeplessness and depression. Kindly advise what should I do?

Dear, you may think of your husband's behaviour as the reason for your sleeplessness and depression. Probably you need to think what had made him to behave that way. If it is something in you, you have to try to correct it. If it is not due to your behaviour, then you should plan your future with such a husband. What will he do, if you go for a job? in what way he is going to prevent you? just think of your life before 8 months. You had some goal and you were working towards it. Please catch up with it now again. Since you are already thinking of quitting your life, it is better that you consult a psychiatrist, get diagnosed and treated. She/he may treat you with antidepressant tablets, electroconvulsive therapy and/or talk therapy. It may take few months - but it is worth. You may have to go to psychiatrist repeatedly to adjust the treatment according to your need. You will back yourself before marriage. Your husband also will see a bubbling lybrate-userinstead of a sulking taniya. Who knows, he may visit you daily and even take you to his place, if he spends happy time with you.

Sir, due to Demnesia, I feel like forgetting simple things, ability to memorize things getting less. I am college student. It heavily affect on my study.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
In your age you do not have dementia as you said. Research-based strategies to boost your memory and keep it strong 7 Strategies for Remembering 1.Become interested in what you're learning. We're all better remembering what interests us. Few people, for example, have a difficult time remembering the names of people they find attractive. If you're not intrinsically interested in what you're learning or trying to remember, you must find a way to become so. 2.Find a way to leverage your visual memory. You'll be surprised by how much more this will enable you to remember. For example, imagine you're at a party and are introduced to five people in quick succession. How can you quickly memorize their names? Pick out a single defining visual characteristic of each person and connect it to a visual representation of their name, preferably through an action of some kind. Remember: Memory is predominantly visual. 3.Create a mental memory tree. If you're trying to memorize a large number of facts, find a way to relate them in your mind visually with a memory tree. Construct big branches first, then leaves. Branches and leaves should carry labels that are personally meaningful to you in some way, and the organization of the facts ("leaves") should be logical. 4.Associate what you're trying to learn with what you already know. It seems the more mental connections we have to a piece of information, the more successful we'll be in remembering it. This is why using mnemonics. Write out the items to be memorized over and over and over. 5.When reading for retention, summarize each paragraph in the margin. This requires you to think about what you're reading, recycle it, and teach it to yourself again. Even take the concepts you're learning and reason forward with them; apply them to imagined novel situations, which creates more neural connections to reinforce the memory. 6.Do most of your studying in the afternoon. Though you may identify yourself as a "morning person" or "evening person" at least one Study. Suggests your ability to memorize isn't influenced as much by what time of day you perceive yourself to be most alert but by the time of day you actually study—afternoon appearing to be the best. 7.Get adequate sleep to consolidate and retain memories. Not just at night after you've studied but the day, you study as well. Far better to do this than to stay up cramming all night for an exam.

Hi lybrate-user the headache that you are experiencing, could be because of" stress" you could also be a bit in depression but for that you need to ask a psychologist who will diagnose your problem and tell you ways to deal with the problem. Anger and laziness both can be associated to stress/depressed state of mind.

I am 22 years old, I have been smoking cigarettes for the past 3 years and now I hav decided to quit smoking. I used to smoke at the most 2 cigarettes per day, but last week I went on trip with my friends and smoked about 30-40 cigarettes in 3 days. After the trip I felt so bad about myself that I decided to quit smoking once and for all, now I have smoked any cigarette in 4 days. But I came to know from internet that quiting suddenly will cause serious issues on neurotransmitters and on health. Please guide me with the situation and tell me if I need to take any special food to increase neurotransmitters.

Dear Lybrate user. You are not an addict to smoking. Over and above you are smoking for just three years, and that too two cigarettes per day. In this rate of smoking, quitting will never have any serious issues with neurotransmitters. Don't worry. I assure you no withdrawal symptoms of neurotransmitter problems. Quit smoking. Take care.

PhD (Psychology), MSc Psychology, MS
Psychologist,
Dear, Tobacco is addictive. Cigarette also contains 4000+ carcinogenic chemicals other than nicotine. The best method is to leave it and continue with your will power. There are other methods like Nicotine Replacement therapy and pharmacotherapy combined. If you?re ready to stop smoking and willing to get the support you need, you can recover from nicotine addiction and abuse abuse?no matter how bad the addiction or how powerless you feel. The first step in treating nicotine 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 smoking. Therefore, you need to stick to the treatment plan and cooperate with your psychiatrist / psychologist. Take care.

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.

My daughter doing her MBA IN Canada is struggling with mental stress issues, maybe hormone related stress she is 31 - her stress is about being a support system for others but never getting the same back. She is unable to eat sensibly or do anything to distract herself! Anything I can do to help her, are medicines required?

Medicines may be required. Safe and effective medicines (one or two types, not more than that) can be given. Chronic stress related problems are best treated with medicines. The lay public far overestimates the side effects of medicines while underestimating the remarkable benefits it can have. In my opinion, it is not wise to delay this further and invite unnecessary complications. Some blood tests like hemoglobin and thyroid profile will also need to be done. Take care!

You have to stop smoking. These are all signs of developing problems primarily due to tobacco use. To quit do the following: When quitting, you must take one day at a time. If you look too far ahead you will get discouraged and will give up. If you sit and count the number of days you have given up, that will also focus too much on achievement. You must focus on the here and now, on that day to be precise. After all quitting is not that easy due to many factors. So even if you fail one day, you must try and try again. Very few people succeed in their first attempt. Your persistence will eventually pay off. The urge to discontinue is hampered by many factors but the worst of them is the conditioning. In fact these conditions can exist all through the day unlike other addictions. But your desire to want to stop is the most important factor. It is important to find out about the ill-effects of smoking to have a reason that alarms you about continuing in the habit. The information is really scary but true and you must remind yourself about this every day. The nicotine in tobacco smoke stimulates the heart beat to raise the blood pressure in no time at all. So you must avoid it like the plague: it is just very bad medicine for you. In fact it is highly toxic too. You will need to stop smoking or consuming any tobacco related items with immediate effect. You should start vigorous exercises, gradually increasing it over a period of time. Do deep breathing exercises every time you feel like smoking (try Yoga), and replace the oral urge with some healthy food substitute to satiate the need. You 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. You may also join Smokers Anonymous in your city where the support is really extraordinary for like-minded people who are also in the same situation. Keep yourself occupied or engaged with interesting activities during the times when it is most tempting. Keep the company of non-smokers for some time i.e. at least for the first 21 days. Above all announce it to everyone that you have quit smoking. Here’s a piece of very good advice: even if you accidentally/willfully take a cigarette, it is not the end of the world – you can start the cessation all over again. You must persevere with the best support until you defeat this addiction. Counseling is very useful in the initial stages and when temptations are at their highest.

What are the symptoms of Schizophrenia? Are violent temperament, inability to see reason, and imagining enemies some of the symptoms?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
There are a wide variety of symptoms depending on the type of schizophrenia. What you describe is indeed some of the symptoms of a type called paranoid schizophrenia. There will be delusions of persecution and suspicion over everyone including family and other trusted ones. Paranoids are specifically tormented by abnormal fear. What they do however is that instead of dealing with that fear, they escalate anger over it and act violent. They are extremely sensitive to rejection or the anticipation of it. Their thinking can be quite illogical and distorted. They imagine everything with suspicion and withdraw into themselves. They must be put on medication and a lot of occupational therapy and intense psychotherapy are needed to mitigate the symptoms. Kindly seek a psychiatrist's help immediately and do not attempt alternative therapy until a psychiatric evaluation has been performed. A correct diagnosis must be made and prescription followed accordingly. It is very difficult to attempt treatment with other forms of therapy, which lack the tools to tackle this serious mental disorder. In fact they may cause irreparable damage even with good intentions.

I am in a very strange situation. I am getting lot of love from my bf but we have trust issues. My bf doubts that I am in relation with my friend and calls me my ex. He keeps blaming me about him. He says that my friend comes online only when I am not talking to my bf. I got vexed up with this an d broke all contacts with my friend for my bf. I never tried to contact my friend again. I thought that issues gets settled after this. But my bf still blames that I am in contact with my friend. whenever we are not in contact, he always doubts that I am with my friend. I tried to make him clear on this many times but he is not believing me. I thought to check my friends online status and saved his number on my mobile just to check his online status. One day his number is not getting deleted, So I had to uninstall whats app before my bf came to my place. When I asked my friend to send whats app app to me, my bf heard that and starts doubting me more. I thought that it is nt possible for my friend to come online every time when I am not talking to my bf. But that app is just killing me. whenever my bf is not talking with me. He is getting notification that my friend is online and according to my bf. I message my bf only when my friend goes offline. Things have gone worsened day by day. So I contacted my friend and told him about my problem. My friend asked me to leave my bf as he does not trust me. But I did not agree to that. Later I deleted my call loggs in my fon regarding my conversation with my friend, thinking that my bf will doubt more. But My bf is too intelligent that he checked true caller and identified that I talked to my friend. At that time my friend gave another number of his classmate so that I can call him if his network was not good. My bf noted that number also. Also, my friend has a gf whose number I gave to my bf. But he says that my friend and his gf never came online together. Later my bf started saying that number is also my friend's and that he is maintaining two numbers for me. Recently his classmate created whats app and my bf started abusing me that this number is also my friend's and he is maintaining 3 numbers for me. whenever one person in those three numbers comes online when I am not in contact with my bf. He starts abusing me very badly calling me a prostitute and a bitch. When I am not working, I used to spend onm skype whole day with my bf so that he does not doubt me. Even then when I used to go for wash room or drinking water, my bf used to doubt me. Now I have started working and now it is impossible to talk to him on skype all day. He thinks that I am having another phone which I uses only to contact my friend which is not true. Because of this in stopped going out and stay on skype whole day until I sleep. Now he started abusing that my friend comes online only after I get up and talks to me. When I am talking to him on for also, my bf thinks that i am chatting with my friend. Now a days he is blaming that I am chatting with my friend even when I am chatting with my bf. Continued in next question.

I think" trust" is a huge concern here. I sense that you are not happy with this relationship. But you are thinking that you are getting lots of love from your bf. I would suggest you to think more about it, do you really feel loved" love" - is freedom, respect, and taking care. Are you getting all this? please also think, for your own benefit, that what is the reason, that you are continuing in such emotionally abusive relationship? it appears that your bf is treating you like a weakling and you are submitting yourself to his demands. Another thing is, you are aware that your bf does not like you to maintain contact with your other friend, but you are still in touch with him. You need to decide which relationship is more important for you. Also please think about how will you manage in future with your bf if he is so suspicious? please think rationally, take someone's advice and then take decision to maintain that relation, which will not harm your present and future.

Using antidepressants at early age. It is not good for your health. It has side effects. You may suffer in future. Unnecessary problems may occur. Better to follow stress relief methods. And know stress relief management. Share your feelings with closed once. Take the help of elders. It is good all the time. Concentrate on your studies. Do not concentrate on medical aspects. Know what you need. Better to consult psychologist. Psychological counselling has no side effects. It improves your personality. So consult psychologist. Best of luck.

This usually happens when we are depression or any stress. You should start with yoga and meditation exercises. Take proper sleep at night. Avoid spicy fried and junk food. You may also take some ayurvedic drugs which may help you to gain your memory power.
