Sir, I need consultation on my love marriage with my cousin we are in deep love for the past 6 years. She is my mother sister daughter. Our parents are opposing it severely. I am very depressed no hope of life. I don't know how to convince them. They are obsessed with the society. We can't live without each other. We both are working. They are very negative minded people. They think what they say is only correct. They believe outsider's words rather than our words. They Are forcing her to marry other person. They are torturing us. We don't want to marry other people and spoil their lives and decided not marry any one but they are not listening to her. I don't know how to convince them at least to agree that not to force to marry other person. We love parents a lot. But they are not at least trying to understand our situation. They are concerned about themselves only. If you can deal this type cases let me know. Please help me.

If I may say so, all the accusations you have piled on your parents are actually true about both of you. You see, this marriage is a consanguineous marriage i. E. Being first cousins it is not medically advisable for you two to get married. Your offspring will suffer all kinds of abnormalities. So there is good reason for your parents to oppose it, not on social grounds alone. If you do not wish to have children of your own, then it is possible to marry this girl. Do not get so worked up about this whole situation. This is really a test of your love for each other: you can become all adamant and refuse to see reason or you can accept the facts and learn to move on. So, have a discussion with your parents and study the pros and cons in consultation with a doctor or counselor and sort this matter out for good.

I am 21 years old boy I am suffering form hemicrania disease past 4 years. Neurologist gave me these medicines like sensival 25mg and naprosyn 250mg. I didn't get recovery properly I have taken these medicines daily at evening time problem is that when I am start studying my concentration will be having 1 hour only after that losing my concentration and thinking negative a wonderful images are coming in my brain I want to spend more hour on my studies I request to all psychologist which kind of disease it is so please give me a good advice how can I erase these things in my brain and proceed to concentrate about my further studies that will be your most kindness.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
I can give you come concentration tips and try them. 10 Study Tips to Improve Your Learning Study Tip 1: Underlining Underlining is one of the simplest and best known study tips. It’s easy to highlight the most significant parts of what you’re reading. One key sentence per paragraph and a few important phrases here and there. You can only retain a certain amount so it’s best to retain the most important information. Study Tip 2: Make your own note and taking notes is one of the most widespread study skills out there. Essentially the aim of note-taking is to summarise lectures or articles in your own words so you can easily remember the ideas. Study Tip 3: Mind mapping A good Mind map can save you many hours of study and further consolidate your knowledge for your exams. Mind Maps are an extremely versatile tools. They can be used for brainstorming, outlining essays or study topics and for general exam preparation, ExamTime offers the ability to create Mind Maps quickly and easily which makes them the ideal tool when it comes to exams. Study Tip 4: Flash cards:- Using these are a particularly effective method of learning when trying to assimilate different facts, dates, formulas or vocabulary. Subjects such as History, Physics, Maths, Chemistry, Geography or any language are made much easier if you incorporate Flashcards in to your study. Study Tip 5: Case Studies Sometimes it can be difficult to grasp the implications of some theories. This is where studying case studies can be a big help. Case studies can help you visualise a theory and place it in a more familiar and realistic context. This is especially useful in business or law subjects. Study Tip 6: Quizzes are an excellent way to review study notes in the weeks and days before an exam. Quizzes can show where your strengths and weaknesses are, so it allows you to focus your efforts more precisely. Moreover, if you share your Study Quiz with your classmates and test each other as much as possible you can discover even more details and areas you may have overlooked. So before any exam, make sure you create and share a bunch of different Quizzes with your Friends. Study Tip 7: Brainstorming This is another study technique that is ideal for studying with friends and/or classmates. Brainstorming is a great way to expand every possible idea out of any topic. Just get a bunch of friends together and shoot the breeze, there are no wrong answers when brainstorming – just talk and capture the ideas, you can review afterward. Study Tip 8: Mnemonic Rules Mnemonics are especially useful when memorising lists and sets. Mnemonics rules basically work by associating certain concepts with other concepts that are more familiar to us. There are many different ways to make mnemonics and these can be individual to the person. Study Tip 9: ORGANISE your study One of the most effective study skills is also one of the most often overlooked; this is organising your study. Creating a TIME TABLE gives you goals and a time in which to achieve them. Having a study timetable as you study is greatly motivational Study Tip 10: Drawing Many people find it easier to recall images rather than text that is why they are better able to memorise concepts if they associate them with pictures or drawings. If you find answer helpful please click on “helpful” tab for knowing my efforts are useful CONCENTRATION TIPS Here’s some tips to get into a state of deep concentration where work / or studies flow easily so that you can do well in examinations/ and or do your work well. 1) Cut Off the Noise Getting into a state of concentration can take at least fifteen minutes. If you are getting distracted every five, you can’t possibly focus entirely on your work. Request that people don’t interrupt you when working on a big project. If you are required to answer phones and drop-in’s immediately, schedule work when the office is less busy. 2) Structure Your Environment The place you work can have an impact on your ability to focus. Try to locate yourself so you are facing potential distractions such as doors, phones or windows. This way you can take a glance to assess sounds that would otherwise break your focus. 3) Clarify Objectives Know what your goal is clearly before you start. If you aren’t sure what the end result is, the confusion will make it impossible to focus. 4) Divide Blobs. If you have a large project that needs work, clearly identify a path that you will use to get started working on it. If the sequence of actions isn’t obvious, it will be difficult to concentrate. Taking a few minutes to plan not only your end result, but the order you will complete any steps, can save hours in wasted thinking. 5) Know the Rules Get clear on what the guidelines are for the task ahead. What level of quality do you need? What standards do you need to follow? What constraints are there? If the rules aren’t clear from the outset, you will slip out of concentration as you ponder them later. 6) Set a Deadline Deadlines have both advantages and disadvantages when trying to force concentration. A deadline can make it easier to forget the non-essential and speed up your working time. If you give yourself only an hour to design a logo, you will keep it simple and avoid fiddling with extravagant designs. Time limits have disadvantages when they cause you to worry about the time you have left instead of the task itself. 7) Break down Roadblocks Roadblocks occur whenever you hit a tricky problem in your work. This can happen when you run out of ideas or your focus wavers. Break down roadblocks by brainstorming or planning on a piece of paper. Writing out your thought processes can keep you focused even if you might become frustrated. 8) Isolate Yourself Become a hermit and stay away from other people if you want to get work done. Unless your work is based on other people they will only break your focus. Create a private space and refuse to talk to anyone until your work is finished. Put a sign on your door to steer away drop-ins and don’t answer your phone. 9) Healthy Body, Sharper Mind What you put into your body affects the way you concentrate. Nobody would expect peak performance if they showed up drunk to work. But if you allow yourself to get chronic sleep deprivation, overuse stimulants like caffeine or eat dense, fatty foods your concentration will suffer. Try to cut out one of your unhealthy habits for just thirty days to see if there is a difference in your energy levels. I’ve found even small steps can create dramatic changes in my ability to focus. 10) Be Patient Before I write an article, I often sit at my desk for a fifteen or twenty minutes before I put finger on the keyboard. During this time I feel a strong urge to leave or do something else. But I know that if I am patient, I’ll stumble upon an idea to write about and enter a state of flow. Without a little patience, you can’t take advantage of flow when it rushed through you. If you need strong concentration I recommend periods of 90-120 minutes. Any less than that and you will waste too much time getting started before the flow can continue. More than this is possible to sustain focus, but you will probably benefit from a quick break. These are the general guidelines for concentration, studying well or doing your job. Regards.

I need psychological help. I don't know whether these are the symptoms of depression or not, but I feel so that I am getting depressed day by day. I feel sad, I always cry. Sometimes I feel like I want to commit something wrong but then I control myself. Yes I am in a relationship and we fight. But then whenever this situation comes where we fight, I get very weak. I cry a lot, can't sleep till 5 am and when I sleep. I sleep too late. Infact I sleep a bit too much. I feel that I am a lonely person, I feel isolated. Whenever I get to smile for a reason, I get scared along with. So that I do not get to cry again at the end of the day. Sometimes I want to cry my heart out, I want to cry out loud, but I can't. Yes I have self harmed many a times. Please help me out.

If you fight more than what is called normal and it seems like you are the only one who is being hurt, then you may need to get out of this relationship. These are the signs of a toxic relationship. This may sound harsh to you but you have to get out of this situation if you are continuously feeling isolated or lonely. There is nothing more important than your mental peace and physical health. These things are not worth your precious time and precious life. You only live once so you better make sure that everyday you live is in a beautiful state. Start having some respect for yourself and feel blessed for the life and family you are given. Don't cry over these things because your parents haven't raised you to this day with so much love to see you in pain and agony. Start taking control of your life and day. Just keep telling yourself that you only live once and start appreciating this wonderful life. You are a beautiful soul and a beautiful person so you should be treated with the same care and respect like everyone else. At the end of the day, only you are responsible for your state. No one can hurt you without your consent. Don't keep the key of your happiness in someone else's pocket. Stay blessed!

I have stress problem and I have lots of fear and not going anywhere because of this problem.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
The stress that you feel is not dependent on the stressor: It is entirely dependent on your perception of stress. Change your perception, there is no stress: it’s like looking at a glass half full or half empty. 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. 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, which is all about expressing your feelings in appropriate ways. 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. At work you must learn to delegate much or some of your work to subordinates. If you do not trust, you will find it difficult to delegate. You need to examine if your work is too stressful for various reasons. It is the one place you will be spending the greatest part of your awake life, more than even with your family! This being the case any stress there can take a severe toll: the stress in the work is mostly related to relationships. We are always into relationships and you need to find a very amicable way to interact with people. You cannot avoid people all your life: no man is an island! If it is people related, you will need to examine whether you are the cause or others the cause. If it has to do with workload, then you will need to discuss that with your colleagues first and if they think you are justified, then you will have to take it to the immediate boss. If it is injustice in the work spot, you will need to discuss it with the HR department. If you feel that you are doing more than you can manage or are qualified for, again you can consult the HR department. If you are emotionally distraught, then there may be some work for you to do with a counselor. This is where stress is mostly felt. When you do not express feelings you will land up with stress. Check what feelings you are not dealing with and then tackle that to find relief which is a permanent solution. To resolve it you need to deal with the unexpressed feelings which may have become a habit from childhood. Meet with a counselor and that person will help you process your feelings and find ways to express them once and for all and give you permanent relief. You will see an immediate change for the better.

Hi, I want to leave alcohol habit, but I can't able to leave. In morning I am ok but in evening I go automatically on wine shop. So please give me good suggestion.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
It only feels like you can't. In fact the evening time is when the urge is strongest. You need to be with someone at that time or do some interesting activities that will engage your mind and boy. It does not matter when you feel like drinking, as long as you need your drink. This could lead to increased tolerance levels so that over time you will need to drink more to get the same or greater effect. You need to identify why you need to drink, and go back into your childhood to find out other influences on your personality that makes you prone to addiction. Meet with an addiction counselor and work with them to sort out this drive. Your already display the classic tendency to first obsess about it and then compulsively feel driven to meet that need. The simplest thing to do is to do some other interesting activity during the evening times. Meet your oral need with some other non-intoxicating drink like soups, juices, and sodas with lime, etc. If you think that you will find it very difficult, then admit yourself to a hospital and go for de-addiction: which normally lasts for about two weeks. Then follow that up with addiction counseling from a professional for at least three years to completely get rid of the habit. If this is also not enough, then admit yourself into a de-addiction center and stay there for at least 6 months and after that attend counseling with a professional. There are medicines that help with the drinking just to ease the initial craving. Ultimately, it is your will power and the support that you receive from the medical fraternity and your close and dear ones. You must also learn to substitute and deal with the oral need, a rigid value system, the script issue, and of course look at all the genetic factors to plan a strategy not to get into what is called ‘cross addictions’ i.e. another form of addiction that may appear alright but is in fact as bad as the primary addiction. The center or hospital and the counselor will advise and guide you on several measures and precautions you will need to take to stay with your resolve. Even after the rehabilitation you must attend AA meetings and continue this support for a long time. Your family will also need to attend some sessions and go for Al-anon meetings for their co-dependency issues. You cannot be treated in isolation because the family has gotten used to your drinking and have made some unhealthy adaptations to somehow cope. Make a serious plan with the family and whoever else’s support you can get and act on it fast. As a combination these two therapies (counseling and rehabilitation) will aid in dealing with the addiction. It will however take a long time to completely come off of the enslavement.

You seem to have gone through a lot and still managed to do well for yourself. If you wanted to leave your brother and still maintain relationship, then you could have done it without the condition of him improving his behavior with you. Now he's probably feeling guilty as well as upset with you for wanting to change him. If you want to leave, then you leave citing reasons which are about you and not about him. Take responsibility for your decisions and then decide and leave. Also you must weigh your pros and cons of leaving the safety of your brothers house. You must think about your safety, finances etc before leaving his house. If you feel confident on these fronts then go ahead and leave. But the responsibility of your actions shouldn't come on your brother. You can still do well in studies if you live with your brother. It's in your hands. If you let it affect you. It will affect you. There is no guarantee that you will not face negativity somewhere else. It's all in the mind. Some people have done very well while living in very negative environment.

I have problem of short temper What will I can do to control it. I became aggressive on nothing sometimes help me to change myself.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You should not control your anger but learn to express it in healthy ways. Anger is a good feeling if harnessed well. In fact all feelings are good feelings and they are there to tell us to rectify something that is not going well. The cardinal rule to feelings is the expressions of them. All feelings must be expressed without exception. If you do not they will get internalized and harm the particular organ it has chosen to express itself in. Now there is a problem if you are getting angry suddenly, too fast or without reason. These are signs that there has been some problem in the past and that the concerned feeling has not be dealt with by expression. Sometimes by suppressing anger over the years you may be carrying an overload of unexpressed anger that will come out in impulses and with the least of provocations. These piled up emotions must be dealt with even now and after you have relieved yourself of past feelings you will be able to handle current ones with a lot of ease. Since you are already displaying so much anger at such speed, it indicates that there was something that had happened in your early childhood, including prenatal life, which is contributing to this situation. Your mom will know what that is all about, and equipped with that information meet with a counselor soon. In fact it will be easier to work on it now than later when the anger behavior will be too entrenched to remove easily. In the meantime go for regular and vigorous exercise daily, preferably the aerobic kind. Also you must introspect whether you are actually scared but choosing to act angry because it is a power feeling compared to being in fear. In that case you need to handle the fear and not the anger and your problems will cease to trouble you. Even so you must then find out about why there is so much fear in your life at this stage. Anyway anger management classes will be still beneficial for you.

Is it some event which happened and started all this? you need to come to terms with those things and move on in life. Make new plans and have positive thoughts about your future.

Dear sir, I'm underweight, because of anxiety and unnecessary confusion , my weight is gradually reducing. If you tell me know the dangers of anxiety, I'll try to avoid it permanently. Pls pls. I'm very confused in this connection. Pls pls pls tell me the danger of anxiety to human body.

MBBS, MD - Psychiatry

Dear lybrate user...Scientifically anxiety leads to weight gain and not weight loss. Anxiety or any kind of stress leads to elevation of blood cortisol and this hormone is responsible to increase weight particularly in the waist region of the body. What I perceive in your case is that you are not able to gain weight and this makes you feel anxious in social situations. Anxiety is a normal phenomenon and is essential to survive and take appropriate actions once situations demands, but it is the excess than the situation appropriate anxiety that is harmful and needs to be targeted. Neurobiologically excess of anxiety or stress leads to increase in the hormone cortisol and having high cortisol is not good for our body systems. High cortisol leads to high blood sugar level and in long rul may cause Diabetes Mellitus, Heart Attacks, Stroke and paralysis, Hypertension and many more. So managing stress in life is very essential for being healthy. Learning Stress Management in life will definitely help you. Be in touch for learning more stuff. Take care

My son is 6 years old. He is studying in second standard, he is healthy and active .but when he study for the exams he will forgot all what he studied. please suggest .

M.Sc - Applied Psychology
Psychologist, Bangalore
Hi, is there some kind of pressure around studies on your son? how is the home environment and relationship of family members with each other. If the child has no diagnosed history of learning difficulty, then he will generally do well. Be observant about your and others behaviour towards his education. Undue pressure and expectation will only create problems for him. You can make studies a fun activity, allowing him to ask more and more questions and providing him with answers. You can play memorising games with him and lovingly teach him ways to memorize if something seems difficult. Let him be curious about things around him, and allow him to learn through exploration. Talk to him what he likes about school, teachers and studies and what he doesn't like about them. Identify what is challenging for him. Let him have fixed timings for study and play. Follow a schedule for good diet. Seek help of counsellor for further guidance.

Dear lybrate-user, it is good that you wants to stop smoking, try this method we are destroying our health by smoking normal human takes oxygen into lungs 12 -15 times per minute (12 - 15 breaths) lungs mixes oxygen in blood and it purifies our blood, by smoking we are mixing not only oxygen adding and mixing bad elements like nicotine etc. In oxygen, that spoils our blood and our body all organs like lungs, heart, kidney etc. In our body. How to quit: by willingness and willpower" where there is a will there is a way" reduce one by one day by day. If you need any support have counseling help.

I have fear of going school that's why sometimes I want to suicide. When to write my hand shrinks and at night I become restless and sometimes I do not sleep. My parents always told me do not worry and be happy but my mind has totally lost. Only I can hear, listen,see but no activity I do only I think. I have drank bad water so that I got typhphoid and I will die but my life seems a load my mind is not working cause I have less rbc and when I do not want to eat something due to fear. My neighbourhood is also very bad. My mom dad dosent talk to anyone here and they also are not mixed up with each other because my health is not good. What should I do I want to suicide please tell me. I do not have a mood always to listen music, tv. And do not have any mood to go other because of neighbours and my mind is totally destroyed by watching these all things. Before I eat tasty things but now I do not want to eat tasty things. Do not have a reason to smile.

Feeling low, poor concentration, decreased attention, changes in sleep and appetite and decreased social interaction are signs of depression. If you are feeling suicidal, consult a psychiatrist immediately. To improve your health, take multivitamin and iron capsule daily; this will help to increase your hemoglobin and tiredness will reduce. Don't isolate yourself from friends and family. While studying take adequate breaks. Divide your portion into sections and set targets. You can consult me for further management if required.
