I lost my parents when I am 4 from then on I continued to live a life away from others and it so happens that suddenly my friend circle grew but all of a sudden they all got transferred to other place making me alone once again. Which makes me feel nervous. What do I need to do now? Ps give me good decision

I am sorry to hear about the loss of your parents at such an early age. However you did well to generate so many friends and live life in their company. Now the thing that you might have done was somehow substituted these friends for your parents and when they left you were literally left in the lurch. You need to find parent-like figures i. E. They must be elderly family people who will be steady and permanent residents in that location. You can develop what is called a symbiosis, if they are willing. A symbiosis is a dependent relationship for the wellbeing of the dependent person. Some people will be willing and some may not. One f the concerns you must consider is your lack of faith in them, which is to say you may not believe that they will remain true to you and may abandon you at some time. In that case you will inadvertently behave in a manner that you will do things to make them abandon you, without realizing that you are the cause. So if you are aware of this, you will be able to conduct yourself with confidence and promote a good relationship with them for your own good. For various reasons friends will come and go but you need not stop making new ones, regularly: some will become very close to you and may continue the friendship forever, others will be time-servers and will leave and forget you. You should not take the latter too personally and get dejected. This is life, really. Making new friends never stops at all.

Dear doctor, I had been a normal smoker for almost 3 years now. 3 cigarettes a day on an average. And moreover I had been using marijuana continuously for almost 2 years now. I really wish to stop both of these habits as it keeps me away from the things I want to achieve in my life. I had tried stopping both but was not successful for a period more than a month. I fall in depression and anger towards the end of the month. Please help me out with some medication if possible. I really wish to stop this and achieve great things in my life. I hope what I have shared with you remains with you. Is it necessary that I take anti depression pills?

Dear, if you are sure that you are a moderate smoker, you will be able to stop it with simple will power. But here, marijuana is involved. As you know, marijuana drug addiction is not fatal but it is degenerative. You will be needing deaddiction therapy and treatment through rehabilitation centers. Consult such a facility. Take care.

Hi Mr. Lybrate-user. I can understand, if you really want to cure your anxiety forever, you need to have a long term treatment plan that takes into consideration your anxiety symptoms, what you're suffering from, how badly you're suffering, and your specific anxiety disorder. First and foremost, don't let your anxiety cause you to make poor decisions about anxiety treatments. The reality is that most" rapid" treatments don't work. You'll find many people that claim that they have an extract or a medicine that can cure your anxiety immediately, and unfortunately it's never the case - it's people taking advantage of you in your time of need, and hoping the placebo effect will be enough to cure your anxiety. Even prescription medications have a" false" component. Prescription medicines can give you some help with anxiety, but that help is only temporary, and your mind and body can actually become dependent on these medications. As soon as you stop taking them, your anxiety may not only come back - it could even be worse than before. Curing your anxiety is a process - it's a process that can happen, for everyone, but those that hope they can get instant anxiety help are going to be disappointed, and possibly taken advantage of. Your symptoms define your anxiety if you really want to cure your anxiety forever, you need to have a long term treatment plan that takes into consideration your anxiety symptoms, what you're suffering from, how badly you're suffering, and your specific anxiety disorder. Imately effective treatment. Setting up a long term plan - making realistic goalsi possible to reduce your anxiety every day. There are countless tips to learn to manage it. But you need to do two things: you need to make sure that you're giving yourself realistic goals. You need to make it a long term plan. You can get anxiety help now - help that will genuinely reduce your experience with anxiety. But it will only reduce it so much. You'll still need to keep at it, and commit to it in a way that will guarantee short and long term results. Realistic goals will ensure that you don't give up. You're bound to have setbacks, because life isn't stress free. A long term plan will also make sure that you keep at it - you'll not only have something to do next, you'll also know what to do next. For example, let's look at several strategies you can do right now that will reduce your anxiety: start jogging jogging isn't just for your health. Jogging releases endorphins, which are neurotransmitters that improve mood. It also tires muscles, and there is evidence that extra energy in muscles becomes converted to a feeling of anxiety. Sleep better getting more sleep will fight anxiety right away. Far too many people are allowing themselves to be sleep deprived, but sleep is one of the most important and easy tools your mind has for coping with stress. Breathing training many anxiety symptoms, particularly for those with anxiety attacks, are a result of inadequate breathing techniques. Anxiety can actually train your body to breathe poorly, leading to hyperventilation and a variety of related symptoms. Exposure therapy exposure is a cognitive behavioral technique that trains you to get used to things that used to cause you anxiety. For example, if you often get anxiety when you feel dizzy, you spin around in a chair and use a variety of techniques to calm your mind. Lifestyle changes many lifestyle changes that you will need to make in order to live with anxiety also require long term changes. For example, who you spend time with may need to change, as will how you react at your workplace. These strategies take longer, and require more effort and planning on your part. They're also not immediately successful, and there are often setbacks. Realistic goals and an effective and healthy plan can reduce the effects of these setbacks. You'll also need to be okay with admitting to yourself that you have an anxiety problem that needs to be solved. If you continue to try to fight the truth about your anxiety, you'll struggle to overcome it. Anxiety and stress are very real problems that affect people every day, and there's nothing wrong with you if you suffer from them. As soon as you can come to terms with your anxiety, you'll be on the right path towards treating it. Consult for psychotherapy for anxiety you can consult with me for same. All the best.

My voice is very low which is not heard from 2 or more Meyers so please suggest any medicine or any other suggestions.

PDDM, MHA, MBBS
General Physician, Nashik
Breathe deeply and exhale on a hisssssssing sound. Repeat 10 times. Proper breathing is the foundation for a healthy voice AND control over nervous energy that can make the voice quiver. Say “Mm-mmm (as in yummy) Mmm-hmm (like yes) ” Repeat 5 times. This develops mask resonance, which creates a clean and vibrant sound by creating a clean approximation of the cords and a resonance that will sound great and project easily. Say “Mm-mmm. Mmm-hmm.” up and down your vocal range, from low to middle to high and back again, 10 times.

You could see a psychiatrist for this, there are medicines that may be able to help you. Also you can see a counselor who will be able to help you with your thoughts and feelings as I am sure the reason you arent able to quit would be impulse control.

Dear Lybrate user, At your age, Memory problems like amnesia are not common. Many young people are having problems with memory. These problems are 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. If you want more of my help in this regard, please contact me. Take care.

Hi, definitely you should visit a psychiatrist. He is suffering from OCD (Obsessive Compulsive Disorder). The essential feature of this disorder is recurrent obsessional thoughts or compulsive acts. Obsessional thoughts are ideas, images or impulses that enter the individual's mind again and again in a stereotyped form. They are almost invariably distressing (because they are violent or obscene, or simply because they are perceived as senseless) and the sufferer often tries, unsuccessfully, to resist them. They are, however, recognized as the individual's own thoughts, even though they are involuntary and often repugnant. Compulsive acts or rituals are stereotyped behaviours that are repeated again and again. They are not inherently enjoyable, nor do they result in the completion of inherently useful tasks. Autonomic anxiety symptoms are often present, but distressing feelings of internal or psychic tension without obvious autonomic arousal are also common. There is a close relationship between obsessional symptoms, particularly obsessional thoughts, and depression. So, you need to be treated and for that have to visit a psychiatrist otherwise its severity with time will increases.

I am 20 year old can you tell me how increase the brain memory.

MD - Psychiatry, MBBS
Psychiatrist,
Dear. Memory depends up on following things 1. Attention and concentration at the time of registering/reading 2. Recall in mind and immediately referring to book/source in case of doubt. 3. Periodic revision. 4. Remembering through clues 5. Using more than one modality of learning like you may read aloud your notes and record an audio of the same in your phone, at rest you may listen to these audio for easy recall. You may write the remembered notes as it is a good way to improve memory. With these techniques you may improve your memory. I wish you all the best.

Dear lybrate user. I sincerely opine you should never allow your wife to be used by another person. In the mean time you should introspect. No women likes anal intercourse because such a intercourse only presents pain and no pleasure. You should talk to your wife about the vaginal intercourse and the pleasure involved and show her how pleasurable it is. She will surely accept. Take care.
