Dear , that is not a symptom to worry on. You are worried and apprehensive. You are anxious about your safety and therefore such illusions are common. Don;'t worry. I think two or three counseling sessions and psycho therapy techniques should solve your problem. Let me know if you are willing to undergo counseling sessions and tailor made psycho therapy through mobile. Take care.

Hi. I'm 19 years old girl. I'm a first years medical student .I have my final examination within a week. And now it all happened to me. So I need physiological assistance. I had a guy as a best friend. I love him a lot. We were even physically intimate. There are lot of memories we shared together. Only till last week, when I proposed him, he said he can't accept me, since he has a girlfriend. He started to ignore me since then.& afterwards clearly mentioned he doesn't want to keep any connection with me. This was too shocking for me. I'm now in a state of mental depression. I can't sleep, I can't eat, I can't study, I can't do anything. There's no way left to get back to him. The memories are haunting me like he'll. I'm afraid I will not pass the examination in this way. Please help me as fast as possible so that I may continue my normal life forgetting him. Please help me out.

First of all stop thinking that you are a looser or a victim. You are none of these. What has happened is just an end result of what you had chosen for yourself- I mean - it is you who had willingly taken a decision to carry on with this friend to whatever limitsyou had chosen. You accepted him. Today, he is no longer interested, so please accept that also- this is what life has returned -it could be good or it has turned out to be bad, gather yourself once again and become the bright student who got admission in medical, why waste life on someone who is least bothered, so, think about other people who really love you, do not want anything else but your good-like your parents.

To sop smoking, simply engage mind in better activities like reading, hearing nice talks or music and keeping mind busy in services. Eating vegetarian foods and fruits and drinking cow's milk in night before sleeping also helps. Self determination is required.

When I am going for a study always my mind is diverted for playing or meeting for a friends I need some tips for concentration in my subjects what should I do for that what should I take in Diet to increase my concentration in study.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Diet has no role with concentration and you need to control mind and do yoga and meditaion and follow these study tips CONCENTRATION TIPS Here’s some tips to get into a state of deep concentration where work / or studies flow easily so that you can do well in examinations/ and or do your work well. 1) Cut Off the Noise Getting into a state of concentration can take at least fifteen minutes. If you are getting distracted every five, you can’t possibly focus entirely on your work. Request that people don’t interrupt you when working on a big project. If you are required to answer phones and drop-in’s immediately, schedule work when the office is less busy. 2) Structure Your Environment The place you work can have an impact on your ability to focus. Try to locate yourself so you are facing potential distractions such as doors, phones or windows. This way you can take a glance to assess sounds that would otherwise break your focus. 3) Clarify Objectives Know what your goal is clearly before you start. If you aren’t sure what the end result is, the confusion will make it impossible to focus. 4) Divide Blobs. If you have a large project that needs work, clearly identify a path that you will use to get started working on it. If the sequence of actions isn’t obvious, it will be difficult to concentrate. Taking a few minutes to plan not only your end result, but the order you will complete any steps, can save hours in wasted thinking. 5) Know the Rules Get clear on what the guidelines are for the task ahead. What level of quality do you need? What standards do you need to follow? What constraints are there? If the rules aren’t clear from the outset, you will slip out of concentration as you ponder them later. 6) Set a Deadline Deadlines have both advantages and disadvantages when trying to force concentration. A deadline can make it easier to forget the non-essential and speed up your working time. If you give yourself only an hour to design a logo, you will keep it simple and avoid fiddling with extravagant designs. Time limits have disadvantages when they cause you to worry about the time you have left instead of the task itself. 7) Break down Roadblocks Roadblocks occur whenever you hit a tricky problem in your work. This can happen when you run out of ideas or your focus wavers. Break down roadblocks by brainstorming or planning on a piece of paper. Writing out your thought processes can keep you focused even if you might become frustrated. 8) Isolate Yourself Become a hermit and stay away from other people if you want to get work done. Unless your work is based on other people they will only break your focus. Create a private space and refuse to talk to anyone until your work is finished. Put a sign on your door to steer away drop-ins and don’t answer your phone. 9) Healthy Body, Sharper Mind What you put into your body affects the way you concentrate. Nobody would expect peak performance if they showed up drunk to work. But if you allow yourself to get chronic sleep deprivation, overuse stimulants like caffeine or eat dense, fatty foods your concentration will suffer. Try to cut out one of your unhealthy habits for just thirty days to see if there is a difference in your energy levels. I’ve found even small steps can create dramatic changes in my ability to focus. 10) Be Patient Before I write an article, I often sit at my desk for a fifteen or twenty minutes before I put finger on the keyboard. During this time I feel a strong urge to leave or do something else. But I know that if I am patient, I’ll stumble upon an idea to write about and enter a state of flow. Without a little patience, you can’t take advantage of flow when it rushed through you. If you need strong concentration I recommend periods of 90-120 minutes. Any less than that and you will waste too much time getting started before the flow can continue. More than this is possible to sustain focus, but you will probably benefit from a quick break. These are the general guidelines for concentration, studying well or doing your job. Regards.

I am a 20 years old man. I am suffering from short time memory. I forget things very early. What to do?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You may be under some stress, and I do not know if you are aware of it. Find out what this disturbance is all about and as you address it, memory and concentration will happily return to favor you. Do meet with a counselor, if your stress is too much. In the meantime please follow the suggested guidelines: Daily exercise of at least half an hour is a must. Even if you go to a gym, ask for aerobic and/or calisthenics 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 or coconut 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. Short-term memory is a faculty of the left brain, and long-term memory is a feature of the right brain. But you must have short term memory to convert it into long-term memory. So the emphasis must be in activating good short term memory, ideally and always. 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. If your home life is full of distractions and stress, it is likely to affect your memory, adversely. In that case, I suggest that you and the family go for counseling too.

I started working. Now I completed 1 year. Now a days I am unable to remember anything. I do study and forgot. What should I do. I am loosing my confidence. Almost lost my confidence. Kindly guide. I don't have money to get better medication. Please suggest me some home made rules or remedies or wtevr. Please.

M.Sc - Applied Psychology, MS - Counselling and Psychotherapy
Psychologist,
Hello lybrate-user It happens. It has happened with me too. I was never brilliant like you, I was always very average. I managed to keep my scores as per my parent’s expectations. Throughout my teens I had planned that I would join the army, but when the time came I couldn’t. I just couldn’t. Not because I chickened out but because of some ailment that struck me at that time. Moreover, I had a well paying job so the burning passion and will to join the army slowly faded. When I was preparing myself to join the army, I had somehow become very brave and fearless. I started behaving like as if I can conquer anything in this world. My thought process had changed and though I wasn’t a very intelligent person, my analytical skills had improved. In my head I was to become the best cadet my country had ever seen which is why I was training myself to become the best. But once I realized that the dream is unlikely to come true, all the intelligence and daredevilry started to get diluted. I slowly started to lose the courage that I had built all these years. The fears that I had overcome during that phase all came back to me and I became the same old me. Whenever I would try to do things that I did back then, I would just fail. I couldn’t understand how to get that fearlessness in me again. I realized that I had lost my confidence. I was no longer the valiant soldier that I thought I was and that struck me hard. Now since I had planned to join the army and sadly things didn’t really work out, I was left stranded. I had no back up plan for my career. My friends were all pursing professional courses and I was left with nothing but a monotonous job. Then one day I pondered really hard over my situation and thought of the one thing that I enjoyed doing the most. Writing popped up in my head even before I could complete the question to myself. And I thought that there’s no use following the herd and holding a degree that every Tom Dick and Harry does. Let’s do something relying on my talent. Even though my first job was totally into finance, it did involve some writing and that was what gave the kick start to this new journey of mine. I got myself a degree that would validate my writing skills. And today, I am working as a writer with a company and trust me I am getting paid almost as much as the MBA's. Despite spending so much on a professional course like MBA my colleagues are getting paid just 1k or 2k more than me. No doubt I sometimes look at my own siblings and feel that a career in finance could have fetched me more that what I get today but I know the facade of liking and working in a field you don’t enjoy working in will definitely die down one day. I’ll narrate one incident here. In my office my colleague once asked me about my siblings and I said that my elder sister is a Chartered Accountant (CA) and my younger brother is preparing for his CA exams. My colleague then casually asked me that why I didn’t pursue the same. I clearly stated that I hated Maths and would never do something that would involve me dealing with numbers. Though my answer was 100% true still somewhere inside me I felt why didn’t I also do CA? If I work hard may be I could have crossed all the levels and slowly I would’ve started to like the profession. Days passed and that thought would constantly bother me. Not that I hate my job, I love what I do, but I don’t know why I felt so. Then one day, I was assigned a task wherein I had to explain a simple mathematical solution through writing. The writing part went smoothly, but when it came to calculation….Oh boy! I started to sweat in a fully air-conditioned room. The calculation was for children aged 13-14 years but I just couldn’t figure out what was to be done. Luckily, the person sitting besides me noticed my nervousness and asked me what the matter was, I explained it to him and he offered to explain the calculations to me. It hardly took him 5 minutes to complete the full solution. I thanked him and he left for the day. When I got back to my work I couldn’t help laughing at myself just then I though in my mind, “Baby….you are so much in the right field”. I hadn’t really chosen this field, the field chose me and I cannot thank God enough to have guided me to where I am today. Whichever field you choose for yourself, just make sure that you really like that work and you won’t mind working hard in that field. But do make a choice asap, do not waste time trying to figure out your best possible deal. If you are still confused then just take a leap of faith (like I did) and get into whichever field that comes to your mind first, have faith in your God and move forward in the direction that life leads you. Trust me if you work hard, with utmost sincerity you efforts will surely be rewarded. AND FOR THE CONFIDENCE BOOST UP YOU CAN TRY THESE THINGS: Just as I am sure that self confidence is important I am also sure that you have been trying to find useful tips that really work without any luck. 10 killer tips for building self confidence Identify the problematic areas: You might be very confident at one area of your life (example: browsing the web) and totally not confident in another area (example public speaking). The first step for building self confidence is knowing which areas need to be improved. Identity the missing skills: Lets suppose your problem was with public speaking. In such a case the main reason you don't feel confident doing it is because you lack certain skills (for example: knowing how to use body language to appear confident, how to select the right words that grab people's attention and how to control fear and anxiety while performing). Acquire the missing skills: After you identity the missing skills you need to start learning them one by one until you master them. Get exposed to your fears once again: After you acquire the missing skills start repeating the things that you previously didn't feel confident about. The main goal behind this step is to prove to your subconscious mind that you are now way better than you were before Fix your perception errors: Most people don't see reality but they just see a version that matches their beliefs (for example: people were laughing at me because I am a boring person). When you Learn how to filter these perception errors your confidence level will start rising on its own The only person you need to impress: In order to believe you are worthy the only person you need to impress is your subconscious mind. The more you do things right (after acquiring the needed skills the more will your subconscious mind believe that you are worthy.) Read about rejection psychology: Yes brilliant people, good looking ones and those who are really good get rejected. You just didn't know it! check out those articles for more information: Does rejection mean you are ugly and Do good people get rejected Keep a compliment journal: Whenever you get a genuine compliment write it down in the compliment journal. Read this journal at least once a week. Beliefs become stronger when you repeat them but this happens only when you repeat things that you believe in Affirmations don't work unless: Your subconscious mind will refuse to accept affirmations if the beliefs you were repeating weren't convincing. In other words, if you believe you have low confidence then repeating an affirmation such as "i am confident" will actually harm your self esteem GOD BLESS YOU.

As you think suicide is not the right decision for your stress. You will can be free after it but what about your parents & family. You must have to consult a psychologist near your approach. They will surely help you to come out of it. Think positive & be calm at this time. Do some breathing exercise when you feel excess stress. & remember don't harm yourself it will harm full to your family too.
