Hi lybrate-user, I could understand that you are a lovable person that is the reason you started to admire a girl, I think she speaks to you affectionately and she has got soft and kind voice that is the reason you are close. You must be more possessive of her that is the reason you care so much for her. Definitely you can buy something for her. Care for her, nothing wrong in it. It is just an affection towards opposite sex, nothing wrong it happens to most of them at this age. This type of feeling vanishes as time goes on this is just temporary not permanent feeling. You have got to wait to confirm if it is love or not. So it will take some time. Just wait and see. Do not jump into conclusions. If you need help regarding this you can contact me or call. We are always there to help and guide you to lead better life style. Take care. With regards, Psy. MSV.

These are not enough symptoms to determine depression. So please visit a counselor and that person will guide you accurately about whether it is depression or not and advise the treatment approach to follow. If it is depression, then please follow the recommendations mentioned below: 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. 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.

I do understand your problem, being at the stage of achieving in your studies or career goals, really it is a difficult situation. But, you are not alone. Everybody has this problem in varying degrees. Only the intensity is more in your case. We call this performance anxiety. Fear of failure increases the anxiety furthermore that acts as a barrier to good performance. Nothing to worry. You can easily overcome this problem if you have a strong will to change and practice a few suggestions mentioned below. 1. Learn and practice the techniques kapalabhati and naadisuddhi from a good yoga teacher, which can reduce your physiological arousal such as heart palpitation, rapid breathing, uneasiness in the stomach, sweating, shivering etc. Whenever you face such fearful situations. 2. Also do santhiasana/savaasana 10 minutes everyday using an recorded voice instruction of your yoga teacher (i can upload mine if you contact through private question). This regular practice will soothen your nervous system and calms your mind down. 3. You can also practice mental rehearsal, sit with closed eyes and imagine that you are performing in a stage without fear, repeatedly. 4. One more techinique is graded exposure in which you can approach the feared situations in divided targets. For example, you can present your speach in front of a friend till you feel good, then present in front of a few people like your parents or other relatives till you feel easy. Then to a group of 10 people and so on. 5. Aqequate preparation is also an important component. Efforts never fail.

Children generally live at home with their families providing for their needs, often with the assistance of workers from state agencies. Until your child reaches the age of three, services are provided through the Early Intervention system. A Services Coordinator (Case Manager) works with parents and/or guardians to develop an Individualized Family Services Plan (IFSP). Services for a child with developmental delay may include individual therapies, play groups, parent training, family counseling, or transportation services. Depending on your state, there may be a sliding-scale fee for these services, or they may be free of charge. At three years of age, the school system begins to provide the needed school and therapy services. children with mental retardation are entitled to a free and appropriate education based on their needs. School systems are required to work with parents to develop an Individualized Education Program (IEP). The IEP describes each child's own needs and how the school system will meet them. Both special education and other needed services are provided free of charge. Ideally, children with mental retardation are enrolled in regular classrooms with children of the same age, with special supports as needed. They may be included in a regularclassroom for all or part of the school day. Sometimes children may also attend specialized classrooms or schools, based on their individual needs. All the best

Im suffering from fear and stress. I want to com out from. I do not want to take medicine. What can I do for that.
The stress that you feel is not dependent on the stressor i.e. there is something in your current life that is causing the reaction. It is entirely dependent on your perception of stress. Life is difficult no doubt, as a general rule, but what we do adds to the stress in our response. We add to the stress of life instead of reducing it or learning to deal with it. Many of us follow a policy of avoidance. We cannot do that all of our lives. So the first thing to do is to change your perception. For example, look at it as a challenge that you would like to meet with a positive outlook. See everything as a gift from God to perform as though you are doing it for Him. God never gives us work to do beyond our capacity. Secondly, build a good constitution mentally, emotionally and physically to combat stress. Eat healthily, sleep well, and exercise regularly. Talk about your emotions regularly to a good friend every day. Learn stress management techniques. Do Yoga and meditation. Pray every day to God to give you the strength, and offer your work as a prayer to Him – you will give your best and you will feel so satisfied when you do it well.

My dad has been suffering from epilepsy for about 40 years and he has been on medications such as phenobarbital 60 mg and I would really like the seizures to stop, can I have some advise please?

MBBS, MD Psychiatry, DNB Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Nagpur
Epilepsy is a recurrent tendency to have fits or seizures. Usually the treatment of epilepsy is directed towards keeping the patient" seizure free" if your father is seizure free for more than 3 ears in a row with ongoig medications, you can consider tapering the number or dose of medications to zero and try stopping medications, under the doctors supervision. Since your father is having seizures for last 40 years, this seems less likely. So he might have to continue the minimum dose and number of medications further.

Hello lybrate user it happens sometimes that when you do meditation, the results won't come up so quickly. You have to make it as your lifestyle. Also try to first learn it from a expert. You you can combine it with yoga or some physical exercises. For concentration, you can also try doing some puzzles like word search. Also please reflect upon on your study routine. When we study for long period of time are concentration loosen up. So we do need break in between. Please feel free to give your feedback. Take care.

I am in a relationship with a guy from last 2.5 years. During this time we had a lot of problems some created by me some by him. From June to august, we had a break up and my mom got involved in between. Since September, we started talking again but then in between we still had problems. He wanted me to leave my modeling which I started in june. He gave me an option to chose him or modeling. It's like I love him and I can't be without him. I feel he doesn't trust me because he doesn't want me to talk to any random person or make friends. But he does everything to make me happy. I don't know what should I do. Moreover I want to continue my modeling but I am scared to tell him that because I am afraid to lose him. I be happy when he is around but then at the end of the day I feel low and cry myself to sleep. We are still in relationship but today again he fought. He thinks I do everything intentionally. I have tried harming myself too when there are issues between us. I just can't live without that person. I don't know why but he wants conditions in our relationship that I should not do this. He wants I should not commit mistakes. I am a human after all even if I do he should handle me being calm. Help me.

Hello! Thanks a lot for sharing your problem. This is a very sensitive issue you shared. I would like to ask you: 1) Is it worth carrying on a relationship that is based on limitations or conditions 2) Is it worth carrying on a relationship that gives pain or instigates pain Some decisions that we take in life are not always easy, we have to choose and the choice may hurt us for some time but it may give a permanent relief to the problem :) Hope you make the right decision about your life. Regards.

As strange as this may sound, these are all signs of poor exercise. You must do a lot of walking as exercise, not as work. The difference between the two is that the worked related exercise is strenuous whereas the exercise for fitness will always feel good and make you fitter. As and when you start you will feel the difference.

I have more tension of about my work so how to reduce my tension and how to fill comfortable and energetic.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
I have more tension of about my work so how to reduce my tension and how to fill comfortable and energetic.
To be a safe and predictable person for those around you at work and at home, it is essential that you are able to maintain your composure when you feel like your 'buttons' are being pushed. This strength will help you to achieve your goals in business as well as your goals for your personal relationships. 1. Share negative emotions only in person or on the phone. E-mails, answering machine messages, and notes are too impersonal for the delicate nature of negative words. What feels like a bomb on paper may feel like a feather when delivered in person. 2. Pepper your responses with the phrase, "I understand". This phrase will support your goals when the tension is high and you need to find common ground to form compromises or agreements with the other party. 3. Take notice when you feel threatened by what someone is saying to you. Resist the temptation to defend yourself or to "shut down" the other person's communication. It will take this kind of discipline to become an open, trusting communicator. 4. Practice making requests of others when you are angry. It is often much more useful to make a request than to share your anger. For example, if the babysitter is driving you crazy by leaving dirty dishes in the sink, it is better to make a request of them than to let your anger leak out in other ways such as by becoming more distant. 5. Try repeating the exact words that someone is saying to you when they are in a lot of emotional pain or when you disagree with them completely. This mirroring technique can keep both the speaker and the listener 'cantered' in a difficult conversation, especially when the attitude of the person doing the mirroring is to gain understanding of a different point of view. 6. Take responsibility for your feelings to avoid blaming others. Notice when 'blame shifting' begins to leak into your speech. "I feel angry when you are twenty minutes late and you don't call me" is much better than, "You make me so mad by being late." 7. Learn to listen to the two sides of the conflict that you are in as if you were the mediator or the counsellor. If you can listen and respond in this way you will bring peace and solutions to the conflict more quickly. For example, in response to an employee's raise request, you might say, "On the one hand I understand that you really need the raise, and on the other hand I represent the company, whose funds are very scarce at this time. Is there a way that I can work on your compensation package that does not involve cash?" Here, the mediator's point of view can look for the creative compromise that takes into account the limits and the needs of both parties. 8. Take a playful attitude towards developing the skill of emotional self-control in high conflict situations. You could view maintaining self-control in a tense, angry conversation as an athletic feat. You could also view developing this skill as similar to working out at the gym with weights - the more that you use your self-control muscle the bigger it will grow and the easier it will be to remain calm when tension is great. 9. Wait a few days to cool down emotionally when a situation makes you feel wild with intense feelings, such as rage. As time passes, you will be able to be more objective about the issues and to sort out the truth about the situation more clearly. 10. Make a decision to speak with decorum whenever you are angry or frustrated. If you give yourself permission to blow up, people will not feel safe around you. They will feel that you are not predictable and will carry 'shields' when they are near you. The fear and walls of others will not support your goals for success in relationships or at work.

Not for detox per se. You can, however, put yourself on an exercise program, get adequate sleep, drink a lot of fluids in the form of water and juices, and do meditation. Anyway, you will detoxify quite naturally within a month of quitting.

Dear, 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. 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. Please post a private question to me and I will help you with "effective learning" techniques. Avocados, Beetroots, Blueberries, Broccoli. Celery, Coconut Oil, Dark Chocolate etc are good for improving concentration. Take care.
