I am a 25 years old female. I have a bad memory. Initially, I was only bad with names of people. I used to forget them easily. If I needed to remember the names, either I had to write the name down or keep on revising. But now I find myself forgetting words from my subject matters. I am not able to remember the meaning of a word I do not usually use. I know forgetting can be quit normal but this is something more than usual. Should I be concerned? Is this some problem?

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.

I have been smoking on average one cigarette a day usually after drinks for the last nany years. Im 47 now. Can even this much smoking cause problems/damage in the long run?

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. One cigarette per day may not cause much of a health concern. But regarding cancer, even a single cigarette is enough to cause cancer if smoked for a long period. I suggest you to quit smoking. Take care.

My mind is very slow I learn anything next day I forget that why I score low mark in my exam please sir tell me what can I do. How can I improve my memory power and learning power.

" it is better late than never" it doesn't matter how slow you are in learning, it is how far you are motivated towards your goal that counts. Some tips to improve memory; 1. Don't go further without understanding even a single line. 2. Memorize the headlines. 3. Try to find key-words under every headline. 4. Before going to bed, try to recall headlines and key-words. If it is forgotten, immediately refer to your study material. 5. When you wake up in morning, do the same practice of recalling while sitting at your be.

I couldn't concentrate on study these days. What could be its proper treatment? Pls suggest.

Dear lybrate-user, welcome to lybrate. 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. If the task is boring, it is natural that that person will sleep or feel sleepy. 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.

Bipolar can be treated by Allopathy or homeopathic drugs? Which is more effective? Tnx.

Bipolar can be treated by Allopathy or homeopathic drugs? Which is more effective? Tnx.
In my humble opinion, allopathic drugs are the agents of choice for treatment of bipolar disorder. Lithium that you are on is among the best medicines for bipolar disorder provided it is prescribed in the proper dosage and monitored properly. In cases where lithium is ineffective, many other agents are available to treat this condition. Take care!

I am 26 years old. I had a baby in 2011 n my doctor had asked me to eat calcium tablets for six months but due to some tension n stress I had those calcium pills for not even one month after delivery. N no proper diet. I always feel weak n dull. Never felt fresh after baby so now should I start some calcium supplement available in the market or what should I do?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

Of course you should take them, even now. You must have a proper diet because you are suffering from malnutrition. In fact I suggest that you take a multivitamin and multi-mineral as supplements. It is better if you took vitamin d3 along with calcium, which is how it is found anyway. You may also eat a lot of greens, expose yourself to some sunlight every day, and do some weight-bearing exercises, for a natural way to good health regarding calcium uptake.

What are habits that overcome depression. I am non alcoholic, non smoker, vegetarian.

What are habits that overcome depression. I am non alcoholic, non smoker, vegetarian.
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.

My wife is 47 years Old, who is suffering with OCD, she washes her hands frequently after touching anything or even without touching anything. Because of this she has developed eczema in her finger nails of both hands which pain a lot. This is causing other problems too. How can you help her.

MBBS, MD - Psychiatry

Frequent hand washing can be a sign of OCD. Please take her to a psychiatrist who will assess her in detail and prescribe medication. The best treatment for OCD is a combination of medication and behavioral therapy. Also consult a dermatologist for the skin related issues.

People with low self esteem are 80 % more likely to criticize others & make efforts to embarrass others in order to make themselves feel better, smarter & tougher. There are better ways to feel good about yourself, one of it is end your day by affectionately looking directly into eyes of your mirror image & saying "I LOVE YOU". You will see the difference in a month.

You are obviously suffering from depression which affects all the other symptoms you have raised. You must go and meet with a counselor immediately and if that person advises that you meet with a doctor you must do so and cooperate to your utmost. 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.

When mind is in so much depression what can people do, suicide this is correct or not?
Depression is a treatable illness. Experiencing suicidal thoughts and negative thoughts during depression is common. However ending your life is not a solution to any problem. And since depression is treatable. You should consult a psychiatrist and Start treatment.
