Dear psychologist, partly you are correct. Still I would like to put forward my thoughts. Writing a gratitude journal or stopping the negative thoughts at a stretch is an utopian idea. Let her talk it out. The things seen outside or the verbatim of the client is just an iceberg. There are much more internal issues involved in this, may be. Let her consult a mental health professional who could be relied upon to have a hearty conversation. Her family and herself are clients to it. The more you delve deeper, the more you get to know about it. Best of luck.

Mr.Manuel,Its not at all a problem.. but just its an attitude.. Everybody will have their own individual peculiarities..No two people are alike.Just like that u also. But, U can try gradually on ur own. If any inhibitions u have to mingle like looking wise/ht wise/wt wise... just ignore it.Here ur big asset& +point u have is good in studies.. which can help u to build confidence levels in u to mingle with others.. to keep u at high place in group.So, keep proceed in that way in curricular activities... Try to explain if anybody has any doubts.. related subjects wise.. which will make u good among others& make u feel confident.

India is the capital for diabetes mellitus (sugar) in the world. So no need to be shocked or worried about it. It is only a metabilic disorder. If you understand it in a scientific way and modify your lifestyle accordingly, it is no more a problem. The disease can not be cured. But can be kept under control and escape from its ill effects by obeying the following 3 mantras; 1. Proer diet 2. Brisk walking everyday for 50 minutes at a stretch 3. Taking tablets prescribed by a qualified doctor and fllow-up periodically. When compared to the ill effects of uncontrolled blood sugar for a prolonged period, the side-effects of antidiabetic drugs are very very negligible. Moreover, the recent antidiabetic medicines are safer than the older ones. Get an appointment of a diabetologist immediately.

Hello Lybrate user, chid chid Krna, kisiki na Sunna, bina sochke decision lena, ye sabhi aapke behavior ki instability ko show krta hai. Aap nishchit hi kisi particular vishay ko lekr bahot jyada disturb hai, jo aapke behavior se show ho raha hai. Pareshaan hone ki koi baat nhi hai. Every problem comes with its solution. We always need to think about the solution. You need to spend some quality time with yourself. Kuch samay shant hoke bathiye and think about your problem. Ek samay main ek hi problem ko lekr sochiye. Then you will get some solutions. Jindagi bahot hi khubsurat hai, enjoy the journey of the life. My good wishes are always with you. All the best.

Dear I can understand. You should understand that you have to share your stress with someone. In this case you should definitely tell your loss to your family. Initially they may ridicule you, but they also will help you. That is what is family for and is. Don't unnecessarily presume the behavior of your family. They live for you and you live for them. They have the maturity to accept the fate. Don't worry. Take care.

It seems most likely to be a Obsessive Compulsive disorder, wherein recurrent intrusive thoughts come against a person s own will. It is due to altered serotonin transmission in areas of brain (mind) and can be easily treated by any psychiatrist. Consult one. All the best.

Dear depression needs to be diagnosed by proper face to face methods and assessment tools. Please consult a psychiatrist face to face. Clinical depression or depressive disorder is a neurochemical disorder. Clinical depression is usually treated with a combination of psychiatric medicines, psychotherapy, life style changes, meditation and exercise. I hope you are undergoing psychiatric treatment, otherwise, please approach a psychiatrist. Once you make the necessary amendments in your life with the help of the above said therapies and life style changes, learn how to manage the depressive episodes without medicines and learn to relax, the medicines can be weaned off over a period of one year. The best option for you is to undergo counseling and depression related therapy. Take care.

I have done something wrong with money and now the news is spread to my parents. They are reacting hard what shall I do now.

M.S. Counselling and Psychotherapy
Psychologist, Bangalore
You are very young, and obviously did not expect something will go wrong like this. I can imagine you to be in shock. You also might be feeling angry and hopeless. I guess, you did not have any bad intentions, and it is a pure mistake of judgement on your part. I can understand your parents' anger. They are angry for two things - first is their hard earned money is lost and second thing is they might be feeling betrayed by you, because you did not tell them about this, earlier. Now, for you - you need to understand that there are natural consequences for everything. So, if you have done something wrong without your parents' knowledge you need to know that the natural consequence would be their anger and loss of trust. And you need to face that. At the same time, they need to understand that at your age, because of lack of experience, such things happen. Hence, they should not be very strict or hard with you. Presently, you may explain to them, what you were thinking and expecting, when you indulged with their money. You need to make them understand, what did you expect to happen and what were your intentions. Then ask for forgivance and at the same time assure them of two things - one is how would you like to earn back that money (have some concrete plans) and how can they have faith in you again. If you are genuinely feeling sorry for what has happened and if you talk to your parents openly, citing your mistake of judgement and commitment to work hard in furture and not to lose their faith again, they will accept you with your mistake. Give them some time. For you, you need to know that you are very young and you need to be cautious in future. At the same time, you are a normal human being. And it is human to make mistakes. Allow yourself to accept this as a mistake and don't keep blaming yourself all the time. Learn from this experience. The bond you have shared with your parents, till now, will help you to come out of this. Be genuine and truthful. Take care.

I am 37 years old male. Day by day loss of my memory knowledge for 5 years. What can I do sir? Please reply me.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Do you know of any event that may have disturbed you and continues to remain in that unresolved state? 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.
