Dear lybrate-user, during an episode of mania, you tend to lose insight. You believe that you are normal and others are trying to label you. During manic phase, you may lose name, fame, prestige and money. That is why you were admitted for treatment. Since bpad is a chronically recurring disease, you are continuously given lithosun s r as mood stabiliser. If you stop the medicines, you may get another manic attack which is costly needing admission. If you continue with lithosun regularly during normal phase also, your manic attack will be mild and only for few days which can be treated with arip and pacitane. Of course drugs do have side effects like weight increase and sexual power problems. But think of the effect of the drug in reducing the burden of mania. If you are still concerned about side effects, do not stop lithosun, talk to your doctor. He will reduce the dose or change the drug or add another drug to control side effects. He has already seem to have stopped diva considering your weight. Sexual power may be due to your mood rather than side effect of lithosun.

If you are feeling lazy, then it could be due to weakness. Weakness is a result of lack of physical or muscle strength. If you are feeling that extra effort is required to move your arms, legs, or other muscles, it could also be a result of any disease, illness and too much activity at one time and not taking the food to match the amount of physical effort you are doing. Sometimes low levels of minerals (electrolytes), such as potassium or sodium also result in body weakness. Other important reason could be the problems with your thyroid gland. Because your thyroid gland is responsible for regulating the way the body uses energy. A low thyroid level can cause fatigue, weakness, laziness, weight gain etc. And a high thyroid level can cause fatigue, weight loss, muscle weakness etc. Sometime because of stress you may feel disinterest in your routine works. Since the reasons for your weakness are not known, I shall advise the following - 1. Keep yourself hydrated. 2. Get extra rest for some days till you feel more energetic. 3. Avoid watching television for long hours. Indulge in relaxing activities. 4. Avoid stress and too much physical exertion. 5. Take a nutritious diet with more protein items in homemade food like soya, sprouts, dals, paneer, milk, seasonal fruits. 6. Do light physical activity, meditation and yoga. 7. Take one good multivitamin tablet after food for 7 days.

Dear lybrate user, welcome to lybrate. Anxiety disorder is usually treated with a combination of psychiatric medicines, psychotherapy, life style changes, meditation and exercise. 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 anxiety 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.

Better check the temperature with general physician. Use medicine some days. Do not feel stress. Sometimes stress is also caused for low fever. Do not feel stress in duty. Develop positive nature in duty. Do work with smile. Start your work with smile. Feel always comfortable. Better to share your feelings with your colleagues in work environment. Do work in a pleasant manner. Do not feel anytime it is burden. Feel comfortable in job. After work is over take much time in relaxation. Sleep well in day time. Do not think and engage with other works in day time. Take rest most of the time. Share your feelings with your close friends and family members. Visit temples. Attend social gatherings. Do not feel negative manner. Think always in a positive manner. Be sociable and be happy all the time. Best of luck.

Dear , 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 must be able to understand concentration, attention span, recollection and distraction. 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. Take care.

I hope that the new course that you have joined is of your choice and liking. First and foremost, do not hold any guilt of having dropped engg. It is not the end of the world. We all make wrong decisions at times and there is no harm in realising it changing course. Right from the beginning, start to set goals for yourself with respect to your studies. Be regular with your classes and engage yourself in discussions with friends regarding issues related to your course. Be confident, focus on yourself- avoid any kind of comparison with anyone. You are unique and so are your abilities. Find your strength area and work on it. Have faith in yourself, you'll be able to complete this new course, if you approach it with the right attitude. Start some physical exercise, yoga or meditation to improve your confidence and concentration.

Feeling sad occasionally due to ongoing problems is natural and even healthy. Nobody is happy 100% of the time. You need to worry only if you see signs of a mental illness, like constant low mood, loss of interest, irritability, negative thoughts, suicidal thoughts, disturbed sleep, appetite, etc for more than 2 weeks. Otherwise use simple stress management techniques like slow and deep breathing, distraction, relaxation exercises, etc. Remember one thing. Problems are happening in the world while stress is present only in your mind. Develop a healthy attitude to solve a problem as best as you can and accept some disturbance as an inevitable part of life. Keep some time off every day, every weekend and every 2-3 months for recreation. Eat healthy, exercise regularly and be around happy positive people at least occasionally.

Your problem does not seem to be too serious. However, if you want to remember better, you need to do what is called word association to help you remember. You can also do the following anyway because it will help your memory generally: Daily exercise of at least half an hour is a must. Even if you go to a gym, ask for aerobic and/or callisthenic 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 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. Have a special place of learning, which should be well lit, with soft painted walls, well-ventilated, with no distractions. When you get bored, study by writing. If you repeat learning, at least, five to seven times, you will apparently remember for a longer time. Sit comfortably but do not slouch. The reading material should be of a fairly large print. Study at small intervals of about 40 minutes and then take a break or change the subject. Short-term memory is a faculty of the left brain, and long-term memory is a feature of the right brain. 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. There is a new exercise called Super Brain Yoga, which is done by holding the right earlobe with your left thumb and index finger, and the left earlobe with your right hand’s thumb and index finger. In this position, you must squat down and rise up and do this for five minutes every day. There is some memory enhancing techniques and study methods that your teacher will be able to guide you with. If your home life is full of distractions and stress, it is likely to affect your memory, adversely. In that case, I suggest that the family goes for counseling too. The following foods do help too: Blueberries, walnuts, turmeric, Spinach, tomatoes, broccoli, acorn squash, green tea, oily fish, boiled egg, turkey, apples, oatmeal, leafy greens, lentils, pumpkin seeds, avocado, cinnamon, thyme, sunflower seeds, and red wine. Avoid sugar and junk food.

Dear lybrate-user, welcome to lybrate. Stammering is" speaking with sudden involuntary pauses and a tendency to repeat the initial letters of words" or" say something with difficulty, repeating the initial letters of words and with sudden involuntary pauses" stammering could be due to two reasons. First reason is vocal cord misalignment. Second is psychological performance anxiety. First of all you should consult an ent specialist and evaluate your vocal chords. If there is problem, ent specialist will be able to correct it. If there is no problem with your vocal chords, you should consult a psychologist for stammer therapy. Take care.
