I wish she had told you about the caste problem before you fell in love with her. It now looks like this is a serious reason and her parents and her community may not allow her to get married to anyone outside of her caste. You have to accept this reality and move on. If you tried any other means this might jeopardize her life and yours unnecessarily. Nobody is worth dying for unless you were in an attempt to save them. Your life is very precious and you must want to live for your own sake first. Your parents will be devastated if you did something foolish, and all their efforts to bring you up will have gone completely to waste. It only shows that you can love a person who has just come into your life more than the people who gave you life and spent so many years bringing you up! Surely you do not mean that? Keep the good memories of this girl and learn to live without her. You will find a very suitable girl when you are well educated and a great success in life. For you to feel this level of despair it can only mean that there is some weakness in your personality. This is something for you to work on with a counselor and develop a good personality. If however, this is final, then remove all associations of hers: gifts, notes, letters, cards, emails, and any reminders to get her out of your system, not just the mind. Keep the good memories but don’t indulge in them. Get back to your old pals and revive those contacts. Normally when we get a girl friend, we drop all our friends and live exclusively with her. This is not a good thing to do, generally. So do get back to them and get into good social circles. They will help you get over her. Do not talk ill or malign your ex to your friends, whatever was the reason. That is unfortunately a very bad habit many of us have – we must still respect her reputation and treat her with dignity. Since this break up is so serious for you that suicidal thoughts are also plaguing you, do meet up with a counselor and talk about your feelings, openly. This is not the end of the world and she is not the only girl in life. You will find another but learn not to repeat the mistakes that led to the breakup. This time choose wisely and behave like a true gentleman.

Stress and anxiety is part of life, it signifies you are alive and are willing to make choices and face the consequences. Avoiding is not the way but learning to deal with it is important.

My son used to do very well in school and all of a sudden he is getting very bad marks in the 9th Standard. His promotion is doubtful. So my husband thought of taking him to a psychiatrist and see what his problem is. I have put him for Maths & Science in two different places but still he is not fairing well. Please advise.

He does not need to go to a psychiatrist, as yet. Instead, take him to a counselor for teenagers and let him/her assess his situation. He is going through a mid-adolescent crisis, and a lot of your description is typical of such a phase. But it cannot be neglected. It must be investigated and he needs to be counseled. You may also find out from his teachers about his behavior at school, both in class and out of it. Check out about his friends and their habits too. He is distracted by something, and his mind may be occupied by much daydreaming. I don?t know if you have tried talking to him. If you haven?t, do so without being judgmental. Listen, and see if you can get into his frame of mind and be supportive without showing any alarm, even if you hear some frightful things. If you have been too strict with him, he may not open up to you. You may also talk to his closest friend, in strict confidence, to find out about anything he knows about your son. If there were any developmental milestones that were disturbed by any events, then report that to the counselor. I am assuming that his only current problem is academic in nature. One of you can also help him with his studies, being very patient and gentle. Simplify the concepts, and help him memorize certain basics so that he is equipped to progress to higher levels of performance using them as his platform. There is the likelihood of him lacking some important fundamentals that is hampering his shifting to higher level concepts for his grade. If so, repeat those concepts all over again in a simple and sure manner to enable him. And the last thing to consider is that he may have been using an auditory mode of learning that may be very inadequate for higher levels where the visual mode is more effective. Ideally, he would do best with the combination mode of audio-visual learning.

Dear , I sincerely feel, you are exaggerating your condition. You are just 26. At this age, the possibility of amnesia or degenerative disorders are rare. Busy people do forget things because they are busy. Anxious people do forget because they are anxious and stressed. In which category will you come? your memory could be tested online and if you want my assistance on that you may post a private question to me. Take care.

Hi lybrate-user you are having this feeling because you just go through the information but feel that you are not in a position to do anything about it - a status of learned helplessness. If you really feel that you want to die for the world, then you should be willing to live for the world, take bold action counter such activities, by creating awareness, bringing together the like minded people, form a social forum to fight the menace socially and legally without worrying about the consequences of your actions. If you do not worry about dying for a cause then only sky is the limit to achieve the goals related to the cause. Take the initiative at the earliest which can only bring the positive feeling in your mind that your life also has a meaning.

I m an smoker I want to quit my habit but I m not able to. I tried with some chews and but I m not able to please suggest me.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist

It only feels like it is impossible to quit but if you persevere with some professional support you will wins hands down. When quitting, you must take one day at a time. If you look too far ahead you will get discouraged and will give up. If you sit and count the number of days you have given up, that will also focus too much on achievement. You must focus on the here and now, on that day to be precise. After all quitting is not that easy due to many factors. So even if you fail one day, you must try and try again. Very few people succeed in their first attempt. Your persistence will eventually pay off. The urge to discontinue is hampered by many factors but the worst of them is the conditioning. In fact these conditions can exist all through the day unlike other addictions. But your desire to want to stop is the most important factor. It is important to find out about the ill-effects of smoking to have a reason that alarms you about continuing in the habit. The information is really scary but true and you must remind yourself about this every day. The nicotine in tobacco smoke stimulates the heart beat to raise the blood pressure in no time at all. So you must avoid it like the plague: it is just very bad medicine for you. In fact it is highly toxic too. You will need to stop smoking or consuming any tobacco related items with immediate effect. You should start vigorous exercises, gradually increasing it over a period of time. Do deep breathing exercises every time you feel like smoking (try Yoga), and replace the oral urge with some healthy food substitute to satiate the need. You may also take hard candy or chewing gum. If the urge is too strong, then use nicotine chewing gum or nicotine patches, for a little while until the smoking drive reduces, substantially. You may also join Smokers Anonymous in your city where the support is really extraordinary for like-minded people who are also in the same situation. Keep yourself occupied or engaged with interesting activities during the times when it is most tempting. Keep the company of non-smokers for some time i.e. at least for the first 21 days. Above all announce it to everyone that you have quit smoking. Here’s a piece of very good advice: even if you accidentally/willfully take a cigarette, it is not the end of the world – you can start the cessation all over again. You must persevere with the best support until you defeat this addiction. Counseling is very useful in the initial stages and when temptations are at their highest.

I think my problem is related to psychiatrist or psychologist - I m not sure. Need that clarity. For long, I have been finding myself dull, not interested in life or work. At times I don't remember what I discussed with someone or I have promised to do. I even tend to forget things, tasks. I don't find energy in myself to do something or initiate something other than my regular office job or mandatory things required to do at home. Though I try but I don't enjoy with people companies or with family if I go outside. Feels depressed from a long time now. Sometimes have a pain at back of neck where the head joins but not always. There is a history of last 7 years when I got married and in parallel I switched job. One. My wife was not able to align with my side of family and in all that jugglery it have me a lot of stress. Though I was hyper active in my life before marriage foreg doing gym, joining dance class, going parties, doing adventurous activities but suddenly everything came to stop as she was and is not interested in any playful activity nor she was ever supportive if I propose to do the same. It continuously added onto my stress and my physical health deteriorated. Though my wife situation with my side of family improved now but now I m not able to aggregate any energy to do outside fun activities. Romance and sex also was hardly present between us which also caused added stress and life is running as it is as if I m living for some reason that is our daughter. Two. My job switch at the same time. I moved from a big firm to a small family company at the same time. The environment was too demanding and the boss behavior was unbearable. It was all time shouting, screaming environment, a lot of micro management was done from his side - which caused me a lot of stress. Though I tried to leave the job many times - resigned 3 times - but he did not allowed me to leave and created an environment that I could not leave it. But it never improved the situation. He has been very active to track our cvs on all job sites and everytime used to show printouts of our cv and forced us to remove the profiles. Though I have been finally able to quit last year still jobless that time. But now my new job does not have that kind of environment. And I feel lot relieved. But that previous job has created such an impact on my mental status that I m still struggling with my mental strengths, energy levels, no concentration power, low remembrance and a lost will-power that I used to have in ample. (symptoms mentioned in 1st para). Looking for some guidance how to come back to a better life and get back my will power, concentration power, stamina, remembrance power and so a happy un- depressed life.

Dear, all the problems you have mentioned in your quesion is related to attitude and related mood. If your attitude is not right, everything you look into will present itself as dull. That includes your body. You are feeling dull because you are not properly looking into the eventualities. Positive thinking will help you a lot. I suggest you to consult a psychologist. Take care.

How to remove stress?
Dear , Stress is simply a reaction to a stimulus that disturbs our physical or mental equilibrium. In other words, it's an omnipresent part of life. A stressful event can trigger the ?fight-or-flight? response, causing hormones such as adrenaline and cortisol to surge through the body. A little bit of stress, known as ?acute stress,? can be exciting?it keeps us active and alert. But long-term, or ?chronic stress,? can have detrimental effects on health. You may not be able to control the stressors in your world, but you can alter your reaction to them. I need to know, what are the causes with which you are stressed? Once you know the reason, you will be able to adjust with it with some tips and tricks. Please let me know the details. Take care.

Mother feels discomfort and depressed. She doesn't get sleep although she doesn't have any sort of tension.
Dear lybrate-user, Diabetes and depression go together in many persons. Depression is a disorder of brain chemicals causing feelings. It does not come through only tension. Please request your doctor to refer her to psychiatrist or let him/her consult a psychiatrist on your mother's behalf. She may be given an antidepressant in addiction to other medicines. Let her not try any sleeping tablets on her own. Unless depression is treated, she will not be able to sleep with sleeping tablets also.

I am seeing my friend bipolar in nature? his expressions, thoughts are changing immediately what should we do?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

You cannot identify bipolar easily as a lay person. So without wasting time do take the person to a doctor and to a counselor for diagnosis and treatment immediately. You must make sure that the person cooperates because many times they do not believe that there is something wrong and would love to quit the medication. Complying with all the medical prescriptions and working in tandem with a counselor for a long time and learning coping skills and techniques to handle the daily challenges the person will face is very important. There are certain adaptations that will suit him during the elation phase and there are certain behaviors that are required during the depressed phases. In the meantime he can do certain things that will give him benefits anyway. Emotional therapy will alleviate a lot of the problems faced in this condition because it is a mood disorder. He needs to particularly look at his levels of anger both for its reasonableness and to express it in appropriate manner. I suspect that much of this anger may have origins in early childhood that he may never be aware of now. Let him talk to your parents and explore that angle. This information will help the counselor too. Also he will need to check whether there is any genetic factor involved. He must exercise regularly, eat healthily and sleep normally too. If his motivation and cooperation is good much can be achieved. He must have a time-structured schedule filled with interesting and reasonable activities and it must be monitored for compliance and delivery. The reason I say this is that many times he will be inclined to have grandiose notions and confidently believe that he can do without the medication. This will set him back many months in the treatment and delay and sabotage the recovery: forewarned he is forearmed. If this combination of medication with therapy is maintained for at least three years without any episodes or breakdowns, it is possible to taper the medication in consonance with the doctor. Bipolar is characterized by two extreme poles i. E. Feeling very high (mania) and suddenly feeling very low (depression). You can ask the doctor for the symptoms he noticed in him for a personal understanding.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. E cigarette is also dangerous as compared to normal cigarette. Both contains nicotine, the agent which is responsible for addiction. Therefore, I suggest you to quit both. Cigarette contains more than 4000 chemicals which can cause many physical and mental problems. Nicotine is addictive and causes addiction. Smoking can cause cancer and other physical problems. The best method to quit smoking is to use your will power and sustain it with your will power. There are other methods like deaddiction therapy. Deaddiction therapy can be a success only when you have the will power. I suggest online counseling and deaddiction therapy. Take care.

Hi lybrate-user, I advise you to take some counseling from a psychologist regarding the situation you are in. Every individual is different and we are sometimes unable to change the situation and therefore its better we recognize the difficulties one is facing in the relationship and make adjustments and deal with better. Counseling and therapy can teach/equip you with such techniques.
