Okay. I can not remember where I put my things just after few minutes and also before when I study I remember everything even if I read once and now I can not do that even if I read several times. Also I forget easily like things what I was supposed to do even just after few minutes I planned to do that. Like I planned to call someone but forget after 5 mins. I tried to relax and no tension but still something happen. This is happening since 4 months back. But never before that. What is happening with me. Am I getting brain sickness?

Dear lybrate user, welcome to lybrate. 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. Anyhow, there is nothing to worry. Most of the psychological problems can be cured with scientific therapy methods. Take care.

I was a chain smoker but now started gym. How can I increase my stamina and clear my lungs.

MBBS, DPM
Psychiatrist, Bangalore
Dear Ajitesh, Congratulations for stopping smoking. That itself will increase your stamina. Since your lung is clogged with so many cigarettes' smoke, it takes time to clear. It will definitely clear if you do not restart smoking. So continue to motivate yourself not to smoke. Work out in gym as much stamina as you have. Slowly you will increase gym and energy level. You are young and you can do it. Since i don't know how many cigarettes you were smoking and for how long, i can not say the time of clearing lungs. Roughly i will say 3-6 months. Remember that nicotine from cigarettes reach brain and activates it within seconds. The oxygen in atmosphere goes through lungs and blood before it reaches brain. So it takes longer time.

Hi lybrate-user. As I understand that you are under stress due to some financial troubles. First of all, having depression or anxiety disorder is different from having stress. Anxiety disorder and depression are disorders in which there is significant impairment. The symptoms usually include sadness of mood, poor interest in work, negative thoughts, poor sleep and appetite. Your treatment will depend on the symptoms, you have. You can take either medications or psychological counselling or best a combination of both. Meet a nearby psychiatrist who will evaluate you in detail and will guide the treatment.

Hi I will prescribe some harmless but effective flower remedy available in homoeopathy shops. Try to buy original medicines. Mix 3 drops of olive + 3 drops of hornbeam + 3 drops of white chestnut + 3 drops of clematis. Mix these with 100 ml water and drink it every morning and night.(same dose. On empty stomach.

Loss of interest, decreased concentration and attention, feeling low and disturbed sleep or appetite are some of the signs of depression. Consult a psychiatrist who will assess you in detail. If you are feeling suicidal or hopeless, seek professional help immediately. Try some relaxation techniques like yoga, meditation and deep breathing. Indulge in hobbies. Spend time with people close to you.

Dear lybrate user. You are a student. Students need to study and read different books. It becomes your duty. Once you understand your duty, learn to enjoy it, learn to be passionate about it, naturally stress stays away. At the same time, it you take reading as a burden, you feel stressed. You have to use reading techniques which do not give stress to you. I suggest online educational counseling. Take care.

Soak 4-5 almonds in milk overnight. In the morning make a paste of them and apply it on your face and rinse it off after an hour or two. You will definitely feel the glow on your face in less then 15 days. (you can add honey, oats and yogurt for quicker results)

I am depressed and I am consulting a psychologist. How much time it can take for the treatment?
Dear lybrate-user, I don't know what type of treatment you are taking from psychologist. If it is cognitive therapy it can be anywhere between 5 months to 6 months of weekly sessions. One needs to go step by step in therapy and it takes many sessions. Usually 18-20 sessions will do if you are regular to sessions.

This is all stress and worries of life. May be issues of love/future/marriage, you are 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.

Hi, i'm 24 years old, I'm addicted to internet. I'm using it quite often. Due to to this I'm unable to concentrate on studies. How to overcome from this?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You need to identify what it is in the internet that you are addicted to: facebook, twitter, emails etc. These are all social sites and the most likely reason you feel addicted to them is that they provide a platform of interacting, without facing them, and getting much desired attention. This is usually an indication of the need for attention, which you may not be receiving adequately from your family and immediate circles. In other words, if you get good attention with some excitement, you will be able to give up this addiction rather, easily. Then, there is the problem of obsession and compulsion to want to do the net, leaving you little choice but to continue the behavior. You could also be covering up another deep need in you that is being met by being occupied and distracted into something else. Sometimes, it is related to a deep-rooted pain that needs some therapeutic attention. It will be good for you to attend some counseling in this regard. If you stayed away from the internet for 21 days, you can, to some extent, overcome the tendency. Then, you need to spend another 7 weeks reinforcing this new behavior. Most addicts are very intelligent people and it is sometimes their frustration that they are not getting what they deserve and are capable of, that leads to a lot of disenchantment in life: the addiction somehow gives them some outlet for that frustration. The addictive behavior has an element of being destructive too and so you need to address that drive in you to choose life instead of death! this is well dealt with in the script issue, then, there is the rigid value system, and some contribution from some genetic influences that may seem unrelated but will have an influence. These can be addressed through counseling, and must be kept up for nearly three years to completely resolve it. You need to find alternative interesting activities and create a new set of friends and social circles. Get into a tight time-schedule and fill it will mind and body occupying activities. Exercise must be an integral part of your daily life too. Sleep well and eat healthily too. Look at your career and see if changes need to be made in that area of your life. New study courses and skills set can be acquired to make some important successes in your professional life: most people from good families, successful careers, and good jobs have a faster and better recovery from addictions!

Your BP is rather high and your headaches do not augur well. Kindly meet your doctor regarding this and maybe s/he will review the medication. But ideally, the depression which often goes with anxiety may be causing a lot of distress to trigger high BP. You must go and meet with a counselor immediately and if that person advises that you meet with a doctor of his or her choice you must do so and cooperate to your utmost. Please visit these professionals along with your parents. In the meantime please do the following sincerely because you could resolve the problem better with good cooperation: Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber, nuts, avocado, exercise regularly, eat dark chocolate, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. I suggest you do the opposite of what this depression makes you feel like doing (actually, not doing): you will need to fight this condition. You must become active; stay upright during the daylight time; meet people; never sleep during the day, wake up by 6 am every day, play some active games, especially contact games, do physical exercises, talk to people and join some social clubs, attend Yoga classes etc. Watch sitcoms on TV or comedies and cheer yourself up. Go for excursions in groups, for outings, camps, conferences, and religious conventions. Get a pet dog and spend time training it, exercising it and relating to it. Expose yourself to some sunlight every day, at least, 30 minutes but not in the scorching heat. Whatever happens, please incorporate these three important adaptations in your life: always be responsible, be respectful, and be functional. If you did these three, lots of things will go well in life. Please pray and have faith in God to alleviate your sufferings. Don’t wait for others to help. Use your own motivation, which might be at its lowest, but persevere and win this battle. Above all to be really happy, you need to live in love and for love. Learn all about emotions and how to handle them and that will get you out of the depression rather easily and quickly. A counselor is there only to facilitate you, all the hard word must come from you, and your cooperation with that person is very critical for your success. Be positive every day and learn to be contented with what you have. Do some left brain exercises: it is the happy brain. Here are a few suggestions: 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. Whatever happens please cooperate with the therapy and do not discontinue until the condition is completely resolved.

She is suffering from absessive compulsory disorder. Repeated hand wash called ocd with acute stress disorder. She needs continuous psychotherapy & behavior modification therapy & relaxation therapy. Develop inter personal relations, sociability, stress relief method. First talk to her why she stressed what are the reasons of this situation. Better share all the problems. Support to her. Talk to her pleasantly share love. Motivate her to come out of her problems. If not possible for you. Better to consult a good psychologist for good support.

Mental Health Stigma

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Delhi
Mental Health Stigma

Mental illnesses are health conditions involving changes in thinking, emotion or behavior (or a combination of these). Mental illnesses are associated with distress and/or problems functioning in social, work or family activities.
Mental health forms the basis of thinking, communication, learning, resilience, and self-esteem. Mental health is also key to relationships, personal and emotional well-being and contributing to community or society.

Many people who have a mental illness do not want to talk about it. But mental illness is nothing to be ashamed of! it is a medical condition, just like heart disease or diabetes. And mental health conditions are easily treatable with the right kind of treatment.
Mental illness does not discriminate; it can affect anyone regardless of your age, gender, income, social status, race/ethnicity, religion/spirituality, sexual orientation, background or another aspect of cultural identity. Mental illnesses take many forms. Some are fairly mild and only interfere in limited ways with daily life, such as certain phobias (abnormal fears). Other mental health conditions are so severe that a person may need care in a hospital.
