You are an youngster. At your age disappointment is normal. Lack of interest may be due to disappointment. Stress related anxiety is also normal. You need to set goal and work hard to achieve it. Setbacks are part of life and you should learn to accept it. You could need motivation therapy from an expert psychologist. Take care.

at your age, memory problems like amnesia, dementia or alzheimer's are not common. Many young people do complain having problems with memory. These problems are due to either they are too busy or due to anxiety and stress. Busy people use organizers or employ a personal assistant because they can't remember every task. You need to understand this. If you still say, you are having memory problems, we need to check your memory using memory test. You may contact a clinical psychologist or neurologist for memory test and further investigation. Take care.

General Physician,
10 Natural Depression Treatments Being depressed can make you feel helpless. But Along with therapy and sometimes medication, there's a lot you can do on your own to fight back. Changing your behaviour – your physical work, lifestyle, and even your way of thinking -- are all natural depression treatments .these tips can help you feel better -- starting right now. 1. Get in a routine. If you’re depressed, you need a routine depression can strip away the structure from your life. One day melts into the next. Setting a gentle daily schedule can help you get back on track. 2. When you're depressed, you may feel like you can't accomplish anything. That makes you feel worse about yourself. To push back, set daily goals for yourself. "Start very small,” "Make your goal something that you can succeed at, like doing the dishes every other day. As you start to feel better, you can add more challenging daily goals. 3. Exercise- It temporarily boosts feel-good chemicals called endorphins. It may also have long-term benefits for people. Regular exercise seems to encourage the brain to rewire itself in positive ways. How much exercise do you need? You don’t need to run marathons to get a benefit. Just walking a few times a week can help. 4. Eat healthy. There is no magic / special; diet that corrects depression. It's a good idea to watch what you eat, though. If depression tends to make you overeat, getting in control of your eating will help you feel better. Although nothing is definitive, there’s evidence that foods with omega-3 fatty acids (such as fish) and folic acid (such as spinach) could help ease depression. 5. Get enough sleep. Depression can make it hard to get enough sleep and can make depression worse. What can you do? Start by making some changes to your lifestyle. Go to bed and get up at the same time every day. Try not to nap. Take all the distractions out of your bedroom -- no computer and no TV. In time, you may find your sleep improves. 6. Take on responsibilities. When you’re depressed, you may want to pull back from life and give up your responsibilities at home and at work. Staying involved and having daily responsibilities can work as a natural depression treatment. They ground you and give you a sense of accomplishment. If you're not up to full-time school or work, that’s fine. Think about part-time. If that seems like too much, consider volunteer work. 7. Challenge negative thoughts. In your fight against depression, a lot of the work is mental -- changing how you think. When you're depressed, you leap to the worst possible conclusions. You might feel like no one likes you, but is there real evidence for that? You might feel like the most worthless person on the planet, but is that really likely? It takes practice, but in time you can beat back those negative thoughts before they get out of control. 8. Check with your doctor before using supplements. "There's promising evidence for certain supplements for depression, Those include fish oil, folic acid. Always check with your doctor before starting any supplement, especially if you’re already taking medications 9. Do something new. When you’re depressed, you’re in a rut. Push yourself to do something different. Go to a museum. Pick up a used book and read it on a park bench. Volunteer at a soup kitchen. Take a language class. "When we challenge ourselves to do something different, there are chemical changes in the brain, "Trying something new alters the levels of [the brain chemical] dopamine, which is associated with pleasure, enjoyment, and learning. 10. Try to have fun. If you’re depressed, make time for things you enjoy. What if nothing seems fun anymore? "That's just a symptom of depression, You have to keep trying anyway. As strange as it might sound, you have to work at having fun. Plan things you used to enjoy, even if they feel like a chore. Keep going to the movies. Keep going out with friends for dinner. When you're depressed, you can lose the knack for enjoying life, you have to relearn how to do it. In time, fun things really will feel fun again.

।मुझे हरदम थकान का अनुभव होता है और किसी भी काम को रूचिपूर्ण तरीके से नहीं कर पाता।ऐसे सोचता हूँ बस जो चल रहा है ठीक है।परिवार का कोई सदस्य यदि जरा सा भी अस्वस्थ दीखता है तो मुंह सूखने लगता है और थोडा विचलित हो जाता हूँ कि अब क्या करूँ यहाँ तक की यदि बिजली भी गुल हो जाती है तो जब तक नहीं आती तब तक एक खीझ का अनुभव करता हूँ।इसके लिए मैंने यहाँ फिजिशियन को दिखाया तो उन्होंने एंग्जायटी बताते हुए clonazepam0. 25 mg.HS चालू कर दी जिसे में विगत 10 दिन से ले रहा हूँ लेकिन अभी अपेक्षित लाभ महसूस नहीं हो रहा है।मुझे ऐसा भी महसूस हो रहा है की में थोड़ा भुलक्कड़ भी हो रहा हूँ।कृपया मेरा उचित मार्गदर्शन करें।क्या में SSRI medicine शुरू कर सकता हूँ यदि हाँ तो कौनसी दवा मेरे लिए उपयोगी होगी?

Dear, आप को जो दवाई दी गई हें वो नींद की हें वो इसलिए दी जाती हें क्युकी आपकी नींद पूरी हो और आपको मानसिक थकान कम लगे जिससे आपको होने वाली तकलीफों को घटाया जा सके.लेकिन यह दवाई को लम्बे समय तक लेने से आपको इसकी आदत पड सकती हें जिससे बाद में अगर आपने ये दवाई नहीं ली तो आपको ज्यादा तकलीफ हो सकती हें. आप अपनी स्ट्रेस , एंग्जायटी के लिए होम्योपैथिक दवाई ले सकते जिससे आपको कोई आड-असर भी नहीं होगी आर आपकी बीमारी का जड से इलाज हो सकता हें. जब तक आप दवाई नहीं लेते तब तक आप योगासन कर जिससे आपको काफी मदद मिलेगी.धन्यवाद

My mom is having a slow memory. She doesn't remember what happened back sometimes and she forgot all the time things. So what to do for this? Any herbal tip.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
YOu have to check if you have any disease by doing a blood CBC and TSH and inform me .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.

Kindly visit a psychiatrist who will after proper evaluation confirm if it is a case of anxiety or depression. As just one or two symptoms does not make it a diagnose of anxiety or depression. Medicines prescribed by doctor would help. You can along with above consult a clinical psychologist who can help you teach strategies to overcome stress and anxiety and think positively.

My mother has always been very extremely possessive and she sometimes goes to extreme heights because of that. Recently on 28th April, I lost my father to cancer. He was diagnosed in JULY last year and survived only for 9 months. Those 9 months had a very negative affect on my mental and physical health. I got diagnosed with PCOD and Hyperthyroidism and the doctors have repeatedly asked me to avoid stress and tension. After my dad passed away, my mom's possessiveness grew to extreme new heights. She constantly keeps a tab on everything I do, who I meet. It feels as if I need her permission to breathe also. This has made me very volatile emotionally. I have started getting these episodes of anger, violence and uncontrolled emotions where I become so angry that I become abusive verbally. This is also taking a toll on my health as my bp sometimes goes as low as 80/50 then as high as 140/90 in a same day. I am unable to sleep, tensed, distracted all the time. I am seeing a guy she does not approve of but she needs to understand that he has been with me through the whole bumpy ride and even though I am emotionally a disaster right now he still refuses to give on me. She calls up in my office also asking about my whereabouts and travelling details and my job is also at risk now. All this is taking a toll on me every way possible. I really do not know what to do now.

It seems that you and your mother both need help. As for you, you have pcod and hyperthyroidism both of which lead to hormonal disturbances leading to emotional upheaval causing outbursts and depression. Your mother still is going through the phase of trauma of your fathers death, which may take some time to pass. I would suggest you to consult a psychiatrist with all details, get a hormonal profile done before you plan on the management.

I was 75 kg before 2 years. After that I slightly kind of became a stress eater. That means from a certain point in my life till now, eating different kinds of tasty oily food only gives me happiness. If I become sad also I eat so much and happy also I eat too much. Usually breakfast I will skip, lunch I will eat very less and night I eat so much of food. As a result I am now 100 kg. I want to reduce. I'm 175 cm height. Please help me doctors!

MBBS, MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Mumbai
Dealing with stress by eating is a common occurrence. 'Comfort food' tends to make you feel better because it is usually something delicious, fried or sweet, and loaded with calories. It is also seen that people with anxiety and depression tend to resort to comfort eating. The problem is that being overweight or obese puts you at a high risk for heart disease and diabetes. I suggest you talk to a psychiatrist to look for any depression or anxiety. If that is the underlying cause, medication and counseling will help you. Other than that you need to consult an experienced nutritionist who will help you plan a diet which suits your lifestyle. Don't go for any fad diets or plans which are in vogue; not all of them are suitable for everyone to implement. You will need to incorporate exercise along with dietary modification and lifestyle change. The best results are seen with a combination of diet and exercise. Before starting any form of exercise, consult a doctor and get a check up done. Do not opt for very strenuous exercise immediately as you might injure yourself or harm yourself. Keep in mind this is a long road, with lot of obstacles, but with motivation and hard work you will be able to achieve your goals. Wish you the best.

Hi, your vit b 12 level is normal but on lower side. Take multivitamin tablets containing good amount of vit b 12 for fifteen days. Also you need counseling for your fear and anxiety.

This is for child 4 year old. Studies in Jr. Kg. I feel that my child has difficulty in clarity of speech and speaking in complete sentences. He requires language development. He communicates his needs and is quite good with written work in academics but story telling, language related narration is difficult. Also he communicates only in English. Though he understands our mother tongue Malayalam and Hindi, he communicates back only in English. Is there any way you can help him develop language skills. FYI he was premature 8th month baby, but had all his milestones correctly. His birth weight was 1.8 kg. He is very active and playful child.

Dear Lybrate user. I can understand. I don't see any problems in your child. If he is able to communicate, written work in academics etc, then the other aspects should be due to lack of proper training. I suggest you to consult a psychologist for assessment of learning disability areas including language ability. I too am from Kerala and I wish to speak to you as well as your child. You can contact me through Lybrate. Take care.

I was a good runner earlier. But recently I started smoking. Afer a hard try I don't smoke anymore but it reduced my stamina. Is there anything that can increase my stamina and make me active again. Thank you.

Dear lybrate user. Don't under estimate your stamina. Stamina is improved by consistent efforts and stamina can never be build in one day or one month. Smoking do affect stamina, but once you stop smoking, body repairs itself. Try getting your stamina back by providing continuous exercises and jogging. Take care.

I study for just 30 minutes and get tired fast. How can I improve my energy level and memory power. Plss it urgent.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Your age is the problem. I suspect that the adolescent issues with regard to hormones may be affecting your ability to concentrate and remember. 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. But you may work on the following even if the hormones kick in: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 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 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 junk food.
