I'm a boy of 23 years old. Sometimes I get disturb on loud voice or noise unless it's music or anyone talking to me loudly. Sometimes I get disturb when I feel like huge crowd or noise or traffic of all the good or bad memories, thoughts, dreams etc since childhood at once constipating in my mind. This also cause a pain in my brain/inside head. This is the actual reason of my mood disorder. How to get rid of it.

Whatever you experience is 'sometimes' therefore Don't worry because it happens sometimes as you have mentioned. If it persists then it is a matter of concern. Don't label yourself having mood disorder. Let psychologist decide that. You seems to be over sensitive about your bodily experience. Relax at the moment.

I'm 18 year old and always feel INSECURE in public. I have a fear inside, and due to it different types of negative things come to my mind. Like what if someone beat me, what if someone forcibly take my seat when I'm traveling in train/bus, what if someone break into my house and I won't be able to do anything. Also I am too skinny so that's also a reason for this. Plus low confidence. I was not like this before, since a year or two, I'm like this. Please help me to recover from this condition. It's too hard to live this way.

All your symptoms shows, your Vata has been disturbed. That's the reason, you are thin and think unnecessarily so much. To control your vata:- Practice deep breathing :-Lie down straight on a bed. Place your hand above your head (like, you are holding something 1 feet over your head) and take deep breath for 5 sec. ,hold it for 2 sec. And exhale for 5 sec. Practice this 3 times a day for 10-15 minutes. Practice Jalandher bandh, uddayan bandh and mool band in morning and evening (empty stomach. You can see the process over google. Do sesame oil massage all over the body. Prior going to bed. And in morning before 1/2 hour to bath. Do this with mild hand (do not generate heat. DOn't eat: apple, anar, All Gobhi, Matar.

My daughter 14 years old she washed her hand again and again and walk also doing please give me solution.

Her problem is OCD. Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) is a common mental health problem. Symptoms typically include recurring thoughts and repetitive actions in response to the recurring thoughts. A common example is recurring thoughts about germs and dirt, with a need to wash your hands repeatedly to "clean off the germs" However, there are many other examples like sexual thoughts, counting, checking, orderliness, etc. The usual treatments are cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI) antidepressant medicine, or both. Treatment often works well to reduce the symptoms and distress of OCD greatly. All the best.

I am getting tensed. Get irritated on anything. I feel whatever is told to by any one even so close to me is all wrong and talkbalwas end up in arguments and fighting. What is the reason forbthid be how be can it be solved

Hypnotherapist, DCS, BSIC, Advanced Trainee of Transactional Analysis, Advanced Skills in Counselling
Psychologist,
Everyone thinks differently and have different opinions. If you are feeling that generally people don't agree with you/ they should always agree with you, then irritation etc will occur. Talking without blaming, listening to others, putting your point across without expecting them to agree with you, can reduce friction to some extent. You also need to know how others perceive you as you see them wrong and talking bakwas all the time. What do you think of them when they argue with you? It is indeed difficult if there are fights all the time. What did you do differently, when you didn't fight once and there was harmony between you people. Humans need to live in harmonious surroundings to excel in life and have meaningful relationships. When you have peace within you, you will be happy, accepting and loving outside with people. A counsellor will help you to understand what are some of your issues and what values guide you through your life. It is a self discovery journey which is very beneficial in enhancing the quality of your relationships.

Occasional anxiety is a normal part of life. You might feel anxious when faced with a problem at work, before taking a test, or making an important decision. But anxiety disorders involve more than temporary worry or fear. For a person with an anxiety disorder, the anxiety does not go away and can get worse over time. Restlessness or feeling wound-up or on edge being easily fatigued difficulty concentrating or having their minds go blank irritability muscle tension difficulty controlling the worry sleep problems (difficulty falling or staying asleep or restless, unsatisfying sleep) these are some of the symptoms. U seem to be having anxiety disorder, kindly consult a psychiatrist and get treated.

How can I increase my memory. I forget things after some time. Please suggest me.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You may be under some stress to experience loss of memory. Meet with a counselor and take care of this first. In the meantime do some of these recommendations very faithfully: 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 are 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.

I feel very weak day by day what should I do and I also think so much which slowly taken me in the depression :(

I feel very weak day by day what should I do and I also think so much which slowly taken me in the depression :(
Hi, get your blood tested for cbc, hb%, s. Calcium, s. Ferritin and esr. Simple nutritional deficiency can cause general weakness of the body. Would advise you to take homoeopathic medicines - alfaalfa tonic and five phos. - both thrice daily, and let me know about your condition after a month. Management: daily intake more of healthy, nutritious and balanced food which includes green vegetables, seasonal fruits, salads, legumes, pulses, eggs, milk & milk products, oats, cornflakes, muesli, nuts, lean meat (chicken & few seafood), etc. Keep yourself well-hydrated by taking at least 10-12 glasses of water in a day, also increase intake of other fluids like coconut water, shikanji, jaljeera, gulkand, rooh-afza, lassi, curd, etc. Which has got cooling effect on the body during this hot summer weather. Sleep for 6-9 hrs at night and 1-2 hrs. During daytime. Avoid going out or playing under the sun, best time is after sunset. Wear a hat with broad brim, wear sunglasses whenever you are out in the sun. Don't awake late nights, follow motto of'early to bed, early to rise' avoid unnecessary exertion or stress.

Dear lybrate-user, It is nice of you to help your friend. Please take him to a psychiatrist and get diagnosed. If it is major depressive disorder, he may be treated with antidepressants. If he is suicidal, he may be treated with electroconvulsive therapy also. It is possible that it may be an epileptic (fits) attack.In that case he will be investigated with blood tests and electroencephalogram. He will be started on long term antiepileptic tablets. In any case, he will be alright and normal with treatment. As a friend, it is your duty to take him to a psychiatrist even if he refuses. Otherwise try through family members.

I miss vaidehi patil age: 24 have been suffering from depression since a long time. I am very sensitive. I get angry and cry very easily. What should I do?

I miss vaidehi patil age: 24 have been suffering from depression since a long time.
I am very sensitive. I get angry ...
At your age and for the length of depression, you have had this claim is serious. If you have depression then there are some major ramifications to take into account. I believe there may be some genetic predisposition or there has been some childhood issue, related to anger, that needs urgent attention. 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.
