If you really love each other than go to her parents and talk about it. Surely they will understand your boths feeling. Without taking any negative thoughts just talk to them and you will find the way. Just don't take tension. Best luck.

These are the symptoms of Depression.It shows that there is some stress or Tensions going on in your life.leading to a lack of self confidence feeling inside you which is not good. Homoeopathic medicine ACONITE NAP 1M ( Dr Reckeweg) Drink 5 drops today night itself and forget this medicine now for 15 days ALPHA T.S.( Wilmar Schwabe India) Drink 10 drops in 20ml fresh water 3 time daily Report me after 15 days With some time and practice (this is not an overnight phenomenon), you too can be a self-confident person, both inside and out, whom others admire. 1. Stay away from negativity and bring on the positivity This is the time to really evaluate your inner circle, including friends and family. This is a tough one, but it's time to seriously consider getting away from those individuals who put you down and shred your confidence.Be positive, even if you're not feeling it quite yet. Put some positive enthusiasm into your interactions with others and hit the ground running, excited to begin your next project. Stop focusing on the problems in your life and instead begin to focus on solutions and making positive changes. 2. Change your body language and image This is where posture, smiling, eye contact, and speech slowly come into play. Just the simple act of pulling your shoulders back gives others the impression that you are a confident person. Smiling will not only make you feel better, but will make others feel more comfortable around you. Imagine a person with good posture and a smile and you'll be envisioning someone who is self-confident. Look at the person you are speaking to, not at your shoes--keeping eye contact shows confidence. Last, speak slowly. Research has proved that those who take the time to speak slowly and clearly feel more self-confidence and appear more self-confident to others. The added bonus is they will actually be able to understand what you are saying. Go the extra mile and style your hair, give yourself a clean shave, and dress nicely. Not only will this make you feel better about yourself, but others are more likely to perceive you as successful and self-confident as well. A great tip: When you purchase a new outfit, practice wearing it at home first to get past any wardrobe malfunctions before heading out. 3. Don't accept failure and get rid of the negative voices in your head Never give up. Never accept failure. There is a solution to everything, Low self-confidence is often caused by the negative thoughts running through our minds on an endless track. If you are constantly bashing yourself and saying you're not good enough, aren't attractive enough, aren't smart enough or athletic enough, and on and on, you are creating a self-fulfilling prophecy. You are becoming what you are preaching inside your head, and that's not good. The next time you hear that negativity in your head, switch it immediately to a positive affirmation and keep it up until it hits the caliber of a self-confidence boost. 4. Be prepared Learn everything there is to know about your field, job, presentation--whatever is next on your "to conquer" list. If you are prepared, and have the knowledge to back it up, your self-confidence will soar. 5. For tough times, when all else fails: Create a great list Life is full of challenges and there are times when it's difficult to keep our self-confidence up. Sit down right now and make a list of all the things in your life that you are thankful for, and another list of all the things you are proud of accomplishing. Once your lists are complete, post them on your refrigerator door, on the wall by your desk, on your bathroom mirror--somewhere where you can easily be reminded of what an amazing life you have and what an amazing person you really are. If you feel your self-confidence dwindling, take a look at those lists and let yourself feel and be inspired all over again by you.

I'm a 23 year male. I was good in my studies at school level. Gradually it decreased. I've never took my studies seriously, I had a confidence that even if I study a week before exams, I'd pass. During my graduation I had a breakup and to come out of it wasn't easy for me. I can't explain it in this mail but every day was like hell to me, I couldn't sleep, eat properly and what not. Slowly I've started getting out of my self pity thoughts. In these situations I thought that I wouldn't pass my xams but somehow I did. After that I've done a course but I didn't had enough confidence in me, by that time I was different than what I was in my early days. I could hardly remember or understand the concept. I couldn't think creatively, so I thought to go for another course, now i've completed that but same again. I'm out of my confidence, cannot concentrate on anything, after failing in an interview I thought that at least from now I'll prepare again but I can't even start a thing. My job profile needs creative thinking, but I cannot even think normally. Some times I feel my cognitive functions aren't normal. What should I do to get out of my situation? I need to improve the functioning of my brain. I should have confidence, passion. Should I consult a psychiatrist? Please someone suggest me a detailed answer.

lybrate-user, you began by telling about your problems with studies and how your grades/marks have lowered in recent years since you completed schooling. As I can see, much of your concerns are about how your abilities and thinking are not matching upto your expectations. You have taken different courses and did your best to keep yourself confident but it hasn't helped you much. You seem to be having greater worries about how you think and why your thoughts are not focused on any particular goal. A bad experience in a relationship also added up to your worries and distressing mental condition. A relationship usually distracts and preoccupies with attachment issues which makes life difficult to handle. These long series of negative events and circumstances have reduced your overall motivation and lead to a distressing mental state where you constantly worry about your abilities. From a clinical perspective, it would not be possible to make any valid diagnosis as of now. For that more interviewing is needed and clinical tests need to be done (psychological assessments). Many times due to repeated failures, we develop a negative attitude towards ourselves and remain in a constant state of depressed mood and low energy. In your situation, it seems you do require medical consultation. But medicines won't help you for long and may not alleviate all the problems. Negative thinking develops over time and mostly it is not a direct effect of one or two circumstances. Low confidence, self-pity thoughts, poor concentration, low motivation, lack of energy and low self esteem are some of the persistent effects of negative thought process. You also believe that you may not be having normal cognitive functions. You seem to over-think about your performance, which is impacting your life achievements. Negative thoughts result from negative beliefs about self. When we think we are unworthy then we lose the confidence to take initiatives and get biased towards seeing all negative outcomes. We don't welcome any new changes in our life cheerfully. This has happened with you that with every new goal you have set for yourself, you have gradually become hopeless with that achievement. This is mainly because you don't feel much confident towards yourself. Deep into your mind, you believe you don't deserve a positive outcome. We can say that you think in a very black-and-white mode of thought process. This implies that either things should be all good for you or all bad. There is no mid-way for you currently. You are achieving some things in your life but you don't see them as worthy to change your life altogether. Here comes the importance of understanding your own thoughts and beliefs. It is important for you to know how your long held beliefs about yourself have impacted your mental state. It is not entirely some brain chemical which is causing this distress. Body is equally effected by how we think, than being just the other way around. So for temporary benefits, you may take medicines. But for long term relief and cure, you need to see a Clinical Psychologist and take Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) which is a form of psychotherapy. CBT is a very effective therapy for long term benefits from depression and anxiety. All the Best.

My son is not able to concentrate on anything. He is not able to study becoz this. Maths calculation, normal study, general knowlegde is a fail for him. He cannot remember things. But he is able to daily activity. He also remember the cartoon series. He somewhat able to make word from english, if we ask him in marathi. Basiclly he is very much inocent. I have shown him to doctors, but Dr. Advised him to take him to spacial school. But he behave normal and now confuse parent. Do not laugh. It true. I just want him act normal in Hindi if i want say " main usee khud matlabi banana chahata hu" just like "THAT MINE"- matlab. That he can understand money and live life atleast.

For various reasons your son may not be academically inclined and may therefore manifest special child needs. Also if he has had a poor foundation academically, he will display these drawbacks. If you can afford it, get a tutor and help him gain some fundamentals right and relearn some basics to help come in par with the other children. He will definitely improve. This may have nothing to do with mental backwardness but a mere neglect of his basics. His brightness in other areas rules out any backwardness. He cannot do higher thinking, if his basics were wrongly taught or learned. Apart from that he has entered adolescence, and may show a lot of unrest from the hormonal influences so that it is more complicating than it originally appeared. Here he could do with the help of a counselor to help him tide over the teen influences and facilitate good learning.

5 signs that you or your loved one may have bipolar disorder

DPM, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Mumbai
5 signs that you or your loved one may have bipolar disorder

Bipolar disorder is a condition where the patient may go through certain periods of extreme happiness and joy which is known as mania. On the other hand, there may be other periods where the patient may be extremely sad and depressed and even suicidal.

In some individuals, these phases may last quite long whereas, in others, they may change very quickly. However, there are certain common symptoms displayed by patients with bipolar disorder. Let's look at a few of them.

  • Feeling extremely happy, to the point of being careless - Certain patients, at the onset of bipolar disorder, will feel extremely happy and have their sense of judgment hampered. When patients feel very elated without proper context, or for very small reasons, it could be an indication that the person is experiencing mania.
  • Feeling extremely depressed - Similarly, on the other end of the spectrum, if a person feels extremely depressed without an appropriate reason, it may be due to bipolar disorder. Also, the severity of depression and the length of time for which a person experiences it is also an indicator of the condition.
  • Lack of interest in activities which formerly interested you - You may suddenly lose interest in an activity that genuinely interested you earlier. This may include your profession or hobbies.
  • Loss of appetite during the depression phases - During the phases of depression or sadness, which may sometimes last for months, a person may rapidly lose weight due to lack of interest in food. Even for patients who have shorter cycles of changes lasting for only a few weeks, this will be noticeable.
  • Extreme restlessness and lack of sleep during the manic phases - When the person enters a manic or happy cycle, it may trigger over enthusiasm, restlessness and lack of sleep. This, like the depression phase, will also vary from patient to patient and may continue for the entire duration of the phase. A jump from a depression cycle into this phase will be definitely noticed by others.


If a few of these symptoms are detected, then the patient should be taken to a mental health professional for appropriate treatment as soon as possible.

I am  worried, because I have a habit of self talking but it is increasing. So what should I do.
I advise you to do meditation for mental strength by doing slow and deep breathing relaxation exercises in the morning. Homeopathy is one of the most popular holistic systems of medicine. The selection of remedy is based upon the theory of individualization and symptoms similarity by using holistic approach. This is the only way through which a state of complete health can be regained by removing all the sign and symptoms from which the patient is suffering. The aim of homeopathy is not only to treat mental problems but to address its underlying cause and individual susceptibility.More symptoms are required to prescribe medicine.So explain in detail.

What should I do to increase memory power. pls tell me doctor?

PhD (Psychology), MSc Psychology, MS
Psychologist,
Dear, memory and mind power consists of understanding, storage and recollection of information you learn. Understanding depends on concentration. The more creative you are on doing tasks or reading, the more you understand. Storage and recollection depends on your understanding and how well you review what you have learned. Repetition and review of material learned and other tasks provides easy recollection. You can improve your concentration and total brain power with the help of green leafy vegetables, exercise, creative activities, number puzzles like sudoku etc. Hard work is the key to learning and recollection. Take care.

How to improve memory power and to remember things for long time, medicines to cure memory loss.

BHMS
Homeopath, Faridabad
Hello, there are few food items which helps you in boosting up your memory power, increases focus & concentration, so try to take more of these: 1. Choline: good sources of choline include liver, milk, eggs and peanuts. 2. Vitamin b: b vitamins are not synthesized in the body, and thus need to be obtained from food. B-complex vitamins are water-soluble vitamins, which means that they are not stored within the body. In consequence, the b vitamins need ongoing replenishment. Vitamin b1 (thiamine) rich sources include unrefined grain products, ready-to-eat cereals, meat (especially pork), dairy products, peanuts, legumes, fruits and eggs. Foods that contain high concentrations of vitamin b3 (niacin) in the free form include beans and organ meat, as well as enriched grain and cereal products. While niacin is present in corn and other grains, the bioavailability of the nutrient is much less than it is in protein-rich sources. The role of vitamin b9 (folic acid) during pregnancy is vital to normal development of the nervous system in the fetus. Good sources of folate include liver, ready-to-eat breakfast cereals, beans, asparagus, spinach, broccoli, and orange juice. Animal protein products are a good source of vitamin b12 (cobalamine), particularly organ meats such as kidney or liver. Other good sources are fish, eggs, and dairy products. 3. Vitamin a: the foods highest in vitamin a are any pigmented fruits and vegetables and leafy green vegetables. 4. Zinc: zinc is a very important part of the brain as well; many regions of the brain, such as the cerebellum, and hippocampus have neurons that contain this nutrient. Zinc is needed to maintain normal vitamin a levels in blood plasma. Sources of zinc are meats, certain seafood, whole grains, baked beans, oatmeal, milk (low-fat), cashewnut, almonds, kidney-beans, cheese, peas, spinach, sesame seeds, pumpkin seeds, flaxseeds. Medication: take homoeopathic medicine for increasing memory - anacardium 200/ once daily.

How to avoid hypertension, my body start shivering while I am getting angry on quarrel.

Masters in Clinical Psychology
Psychologist, Lucknow
How to avoid hypertension, my body start shivering while I am getting angry on quarrel.
Hi, practice yoga and meditation. Although you could technically consider yoga your daily exercise, practicing the deep stretches and slow body movements will help you to clear your mind. Meditating - clearing your mind - while practicing gentle yoga will give double the relaxation effect to ease your stress. Use guided imagery to imagine a place that makes you feel at peace. Imagine somewhere that you feel happy; focus on the details to fully remove your mind from the present. Do yoga alone or in a group setting to help you learn new poses. As you advance in your yoga, you will be able to form complex stretches that force you to focus and take your mind off your stress. Practice deep relaxation by doing progressive muscle relaxation. This is when you work through your body by tensing your muscles, holding the tension for ten seconds, and then releasing it. This will soften and relieve all the muscles in your body. Exercise more. To help lower your blood pressure, you should incorporate more exercise into your daily routine. You can try both aerobic exercises such as walking, jogging, or swimming and resistance or strength training. The american heart association recommends that for overall cardiovascular health, adults get at least 30 minutes of moderate intensity activity at least 5 days per week for a total of 150 minutes. You can also get at least 25 minutes of vigorous aerobic activity at least 3 days per week for a total of 75 minutes and moderate- to high-intensity muscle-strengthening activity at least 2 days per week. If you feel that this is more than you can manage, the aha insist that you do as much as you can to start. Any activity is better than no activity. Do your best to get as much exercise as you can. Even if it is going for a short walk, that is better than sitting on the couch. This can have the added benefit of helping you lose weight. Both a healthy diet and exercise should result in weight loss, which can lead to significant falls in blood pressure. Cut down on alcohol: heavy drinkers who want to limit their alcohol intake should slowly lower intake over the course of several weeks. Heavy drinkers who suddenly cut back alcohol intake put themselves at risk to develop severe high blood pressure quit smoking and limit caffeine consumption. Use herbal remedies. Although not scientifically verified, there are several herbal remedies which are thought to help hypertension. As a rule, however, don't substitute these unverified herbal remedies for proven scientific advice. Instead, supplement your diet with them if they are approved by your healthcare provider. Try holly leaf extract, which is used as a tea in china and is supposed to help blood vessels enhance circulation and blood flow to the heart. You can also try hawthorn berry extract, which is supposed to improve the supply of blood to the heart and help to support the metabolism of the heart. Taking garlic extract is supposed to help prevent heart disease. High blood pressure and cholesterol are also rumored to be somewhat controlled by garlic. Hibiscus, which you can get as a supplement or drink in tea, can act like a diuretic and may have actions that mimic medications such as ace inhibitors and hypertension medications. You can also try ginger-cardamom tea, which is used in india to naturally reduce blood pressure. Drinking coconut water, which contains potassium and magnesium, can help with normal muscle function. Taking fish oil, which is a concentration of omega-3 fatty acids, may help with fat metabolism and reduce the risk of heart attack and stroke include lots of fruits and seeds in your diet. All the best.

You do not deserve an unfaithful girl. So it is actually good riddance. If she has been unfaithful due to any contribution from you then you must look into that and take care of that adequately. You must also realise that if this had happened when you were married to her, it could be quite intolerable. So thank your good stars and move on fast. If it is too much, you must go and meet with a counselor immediately. 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.

My husband is 35 years old. He is very aggressive and violent. He never lets me express my feelings when he hurts me with his behaviour. On the contrary he starts blaming me giving superstitious reasons. This is affecting our marriage very badly. He is irregular in his work. Spending days at home, watching tv, playing games on mobile or else sleeping but not going to work giving some reason or the other. If he does any work of an hour or so he talks high of it but not regularly going for job. He lies too much to escape confrontation. There is always fight between us and he blames me for it calling me jinx. Although ours is a love marriage. Suddenly he has turned hostile towards me. He misbehaves and quarrels with me when his mother is around specifically. I have been very patient with his violent behaviour but I also retaliate at times due to the physical and verbal abuses everyday. He never accepts his mistake and behaves very abnormal by shouting, pulling his own hair, making weird voices, making big eyes etc. This is very disturbing for me. I come from a family where my parents never raised their voices at me. Forget about beating. I have only my father in my family. My mother is no more. He knew everything from the very beginning and he was ok with it. Gradually he has started blaming my father for our bad relationship. Although my father never interferes. My father intervened once when he was physically abusing me and my husband raised his hands on my father too. I am unable to cope up with his behaviour. Kindly advise.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
I am a little concerned that he is becoming so dysfunctional and finding excuses to justify it. Also a lot of his behavior could come under some pathological condition that he may need immediate help. I suggest that you both go for marriage counseling and work out your issues and if that counselor sees the need for him to seek psychiatric intervention, he would need to do so, and maybe he will be more receptive if the suggestion came from the professional. If he is unwilling to come with you, you at least go and meet with the counselor and describe the situation as objectively as you can. You will be guided as to what can be done to help you cope. You should not tolerate violence at any cost: this will lead to a pattern so that later it will become near impossible to correct it. If he has any disturbance in his personality, then he himself may not realize his misdeeds. If left untreated, he could become worse. Keep your father out of this as much as possible and seek professional help soon.

Yes it is very normal. Stressful enviroment sometimes drain us out of our resources making us feel anxious and burn out. Try to manage and organize your day to day activities, eat more fruits and green leafy vegetables. Exercise daily and do yoga/meditation. Keep a journal of stressful events- a thought diary. Find humor in situation and surround yourself with positive people. If there is any particular stress you can consult a psychologist always. All the best.

You were in a chronic state of depression and its other effects but you have picked up the pieces and started afresh really well. My advice is for to seek counseling in tandem with the medication. It is grossly inadequate to rely on medication alone. Counseling will teach you a lot of coping skills and techniques to manage the daily challenges of life. This is a passive way to hope for recovery. You must be active and work towards your reformation. Many lifestyle changes need to be made to progress away from the condition. Then, if you go episode-free for three years under the combination of medicine and therapy, you could initiate weaning off of the medication gradually and under strict monitoring of the psychiatrist. I know that this may sound discouraging but if you had contacted me 7 years ago I would have told you at that time to combine the two therapies. But it is never too late, and now you have a clear agenda and time plan to resolve the depression. In the meantime please do the following: When you are depressed, you will feel lazy though I would like to call it lethargy. There is an inertia and lack of energy to even think, let alone act. You are required to literally do the opposite of what you feel like doing. Depression makes you want to withdraw, lie down, sleep, become lethargic, slow down, make you too lazy to even think etc. So when I suggested doing the opposite, you will need to fight this disease. 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, eat more of proteins and vegetables, 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 scotching heat. I hope you can find someone to love and be loved too. Whatever happens, please incorporate these three important adaptations in your life: always be responsible, be respectful, and be functional. If you did these three things, 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. Be prayerful too and trust that God will intervene too. You have been handicapped by this disease and your belief system due to this disease. Now go out there and win your battle: nothing is too late in life.
