I feel that some one is coming behind me to kill me in my dreams daily, Is it some kind of illness?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

I feel that some one is coming behind me to kill me in my dreams daily, Is it some kind of illness?
No, it is not an illness. Your dreams reveal what is in the unconscious mind and in this case it is indicative of some danger to your life. Even if it not danger, this is certainly a manifestation of fear. If you are aware of this fear then talk to a counselor and as you deal with it these dreams may disappear. Dream interpretation is so subjective that it could men that you are very close to completing a difficult task, or that there is impending danger to not doing something important, or that you need to push yourself to complete an important decision or job.

A boss duty is always to pinpoint the limitation or mistakes which one commits. So it is a part of their job, but taking criticism to such an extent which would hinder your growth or makes you highly distressed is not a good thing. So it is important for you to instead of repeatedly thinking about it, try to de-stress yourself by engaging in pleasurable and relaxable things like going out with family or friends, playing or doing some exercise second, all of us at one time or other become highly tensed when we are being criticized at workplace and leads to low motivation, less job satisfaction and stressed up. But dealing with criticism in a positive manner and instead of worrying over it, try to see what all things are there where you are lacking and if possible there can be chances of changing those things.

I am 18 years old. I am unable concentrate in my study due to headache what I do?

BASM, MD, MS (Counseling & Psychotherapy), MSc - Psychology, Certificate in Clinical psychology of children and Young People, Certificate in Psychological First Aid, Certificate in Positive Psychology
Psychologist, Palakkad
Dear , Your headache could be due to stress. Stress is simply a reaction to a stimulus that disturbs our physical or mental equilibrium. In other words, it's an omnipresent part of life. A stressful event can trigger the ?fight-or-flight? response, causing hormones such as adrenaline and cortisol to surge through the body. A little bit of stress, known as ?acute stress,? can be exciting?it keeps us active and alert. But long-term, or ?chronic stress,? can have detrimental effects on health. You may not be able to control the stressors in your world, but you can alter your reaction to them. I need to know, what are the causes with which you are stressed? Once you know the reason, you will be able to adjust with it with some tips and tricks. Please let me know the details. Take care.

Dear lybrate-user, Welcome to Lybrate. Brown sugar addiction also comes under abuse and addiction. 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.

Dear Mr. Lybrate-user, live life moment by moment, enjoy each moment and and observe what is happening. Try to be in the moment, if you think about the future you will feel anxiety as you do not know what will happen then, if you go back to the past you may feel depressed by some of your choices. Rather than this live in the moment (the day) fully do your best with the time you have. The future will take care of itself, you also cannot do or un do the past. You can take some time out and develope your own goals (long term and short term) life your life then according to these self developed goals! wishing you all the best! with regards, sajen john.

I hear sound that someone is saying or speaking something but can get the words clearly what they are speaking unless I concentrate on them and if in between any other sound comes the I get distracted and thus can't hear the person at that moment at all.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Without wasting another moment, you need to meet with a psychiatrist, immediately. You do not give more details but what you say is enough to get concerned. You are very close to a tipping point and delay will only make you cross this point into a permanent condition. If treated early, you can arrest this development and live a good life. Now when you seek medical intervention, please, please also seek some counseling, simultaneously. That combination is the best for recovery. You probably have had this condition for some time and you are fortunate that it has not worsened into a severe state. Rush now and attend to yourself, pronto.

Dear, you must be able to understand concentration, attention span, recollection and distraction. If you are able to watch a movie for two hours continuously, if you are able to play a game for an hour, then you do not have any concentration problems. You can't be attentive towards your studies because you are not interested in it. You are able to watch movie and play game because you are interested in it. Human cannot be attentive towards anything for more than 10 minutes. Then you should study in such a way that your attention is continued and make the subjects are interesting to you. Effective learning techniques should help you. Recollection depends on anxiety, stress and other physical and circumstantial factors. Distractions while studying are plentiful. You should be able to overcome distractions or avoid distractions. Please understand the above. Change your study style and attitude accordingly. Take care.

Does anxiety cure through medication. Or automatically? I am taking anti depressant medicine like galop plus 10.

Does anxiety cure through medication. Or automatically? I am taking anti depressant medicine like galop plus 10.
Anxiety is when these anxious feelings don't go away – when they're ongoing and happen without any particular reason or cause. It’s a serious condition that makes it hard to cope with daily life. Everyone feels anxious from time to time, but for someone experiencing anxiety, these feelings aren't easily controlled. For the treatment go for counseling. You can take homeopathic medicine which has proven results in anxiety. These medicines are without any side-effects. Regards.

This is all stress and worries of life. May be issues of married life/future marriage, you may be having insecurities and fear. Just relax. Ask yourself what bothers you? have a positive self-talk, and learn what are those things you don't like. You need to accept your self and move on. You need to take care of your lifestyle and learn to be happy. If you cant do it yourself, meet a life coach/ stress management super-specialist like me. Once you open your heart out, you will feel free and begin to fly in life. I assure you that I can manage this and help u.

I have a problem in vision. When I see on white objects or shiny objects. A black spot appears before my left eye. When I rotate my eye that spot moves along with the eye. Even if I see at sky, I would see that black spot in front of my eye. Which rotates along with my eye. It disturbs me mostly during studies as a black spot appears on the pages, that diverts my attention.

Hello lybrate-user good morning 1. That black spot is floater 2. Floaters are due to vitreous (gel in eye) liquifaction. Which is natural phenomenon 3. This floater will not affect your vision 4. There is no cure/treatment for floater 5. One solution is to avoid it. Try to avoid it. Keep doing your work. After few days. Your brain will start neglecting it. Avoid it and concentrate on your studies. I hope this will help you.

Mix these with 100 ml water and drink it every morning and night.(same dose). Do not stop your allopathic medicines. Ask your doctor whether he can taper it down if you feel alright.

Dear friend getting married and moving to a big city like mumbai in it self is a huge change a d chllenge. What yiu are feeling is ina way very common feeling among young women after 18 to 24 months of marriage. The money moon period in marriage ends around this time. Now you both settle in your after marriage life and the reality sinks in. The happily everafter feeling also starts fading a little bit. Now yoh start seeing your spouses limitations and weaknesses also. Overall this is a stressful time. On a brighter side. Now you both are comfortable leaving woth each other and open to expose yourself as it is to another one. This is from where the true journey of happily ever after begins. Understanding how you both are different. Not only as an individual bit there are else some differences in your gender. Helping and supporting each other while you express how you feel and what are your needs and how could the other support you in filling the same woukd go a long way. I would suggest you to take charge of your life. Think what makes you happy. What you enjoy doing that bring joy and satisfaction in your day. One baby step each day would help you chart a new path and better future togather as a psychologist and life coach I have been trained to help and guide individuals through this journey I do offer weekly sessions for 3 months to 6 months where we work togather you bring about concrete changes on your life.

I have and allergy and am very  frustrated because this cause my studies effected.
Allergies can be hereditary. But if you try to boost your immune system you will have lesser problems. Get your allergy test done, if you have not done it till now. Stay away or avoid all those things which trigger allergic reactions in your body. You may also try ayurvedic or homeopathy medicines because they will treat the root cause. But please remember, that with your consistent efforts you can rid of this. So do not get frustrated. You need to go for walk/jog/cycling whatever you like. Do yoga and pranayam as well. Have healthy food and on time. Take adequate rest and have plenty of water. All this will boost your immune system. In the morning when you get up, first thing is - sit comfortably, close your eyes and tell yourself that your body and mind is getting stronger every day. Do the same exercise at night. Allergies are triggered when you are under lot of stress. Please try some de-stressing exercises. Take care.

My wife is very short temper person. She is full of irritation, impatience, in every sec she is shouting, anger, quarrel with me or my daughter. Now a days it's growing too fast. Pls suggest me in this situation 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.

How to make our body fit and energetic and concentrate more in studies which is my main problem faced by me so please reply to my query please please.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
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 is a new exercise called Super Brain Yoga, which is done by holding the right earlobe with your left thumb and index finger, and the left earlobe with your right hand’s thumb and index finger. In this position, you must squat down and rise up and do this for five minutes every day. There is 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. Avoid sugar and junk food.
