I am suffering from stress & late night sleeping last 20 days I am in depression. Pls give solution what I do?
Hi lybrate-user, life can be stressful; sometimes you'll have to deal with ongoing stress positively. Stress can have a variety of causes such as family problems, job problems, financial difficulties, poor health, or even the death of someone close to you. It is important to recognize the causes (some stress is natural), take steps to deal with the root of the problem, and tackle the symptoms. More than medicine try to take psychotherapy from a psychologist to identify the core issues and solve it. For stress exercise regularly, targeted exercise goes a long way toward freeing your body of stress hormones and increasing your endorphin levels - responsible for feelings of happiness. Carve out time during your busy day to exercise to both keep your body healthy and as a natural outlet for your stress. You should notice the difference. Try to raise your heartbeat to 120-180 beats per minute for about 30 minutes per day. If you don't have time to do all thirty minutes in one sitting, don't worry; you can break up the exercise time however you need to fit your schedule. Walking for even 20-30 minutes each day is sufficient if that's all that you can afford. Eat properly. Your body needs to be healthy, strong, happy and properly fueled to help you tackle stress. Like it or not, stress is a bodily reaction to anything that disturbs its natural state, meaning that your body can have a profound effect on producing and relieving stress. Water has been shown to relieve stress. That's because a dehydrated body creates cortisol, a stress hormone. An under-hydrated body creates stress to motivate the owner of the body to properly care for him/herself. Start decreasing caffeine and alcohol intake. In some cases, alcohol intake increases stress response in humans while being linked to substance dependency, a stressful condition itself. Caffeine is also responsible for raising stress levels, especially at work, so try to stick to water as a general rule. Eat a healthy breakfast and healthy snacks during the day. It is better to eat several smaller meals throughout the day than to consume three large meals. For a healthy stress-free diet, consume more complex carbohydrates such as whole-grain breads and pasta, foods high in vitamin a such as oranges, foods high in magnesium like spinach, soybeans or salmon, and black and green tea, which contain antioxidants. Relaxing your body, by whatever natural means, is a great way to reduce stress. Don't expect your stress to immediately dissipate; it can take time. In most cases, try not to fixate on the stress itself while you're relaxing. Think of something placid and tranquil, or think of nothing in particular. Let your body tell your mind that everything is okay. Practice yoga and meditation. Although you could technically consider yoga your daily exercise, practicing the deep stretches and slow body movements will help you to clear your mind. Meditating - clearing your mind - while practicing gentle yoga will give double the relaxation effect to ease your stress. Use guided imagery to imagine a place that makes you feel at peace. Imagine somewhere that you feel happy; focus on the details to fully remove your mind from the present. Do yoga alone or in a group setting to help you learn new poses. As you advance in your yoga, you will be able to form complex stretches that force you to focus and take your mind off your stress. Practice deep relaxation by doing progressive muscle relaxation. This is when you work through your body by tensing your muscles, holding the tension for ten seconds, and then releasing it. This will soften and relieve all the muscles in your body. For sleep, you can take warm milk in the night, be away from all the gadgets and may be take bath at night before sleeping. Consult me for same.

Hello, iam Satish Kumar. I have been suffering from depression problems. What should I do?

Hello, iam Satish Kumar. I have been suffering from depression problems. What should I do?
Depression is nothing but a state of mind characterized by low confidence, low courage, negative thoughts in mind and hopelessness. Are you suffering from these problems? this happens when a person faces severe disappointment or failure in personal professional or social relations pertaining to life partner, work, family and society. As we know from physics that a person carrying weights but standing only at a place then the work done is zero, similarly in depression a person takes so much stress on mind and have no interest in anything but there is no progress but rather bad health is there. Anyways, my motive is to tell you that no time remains same, things keep on changing, it is just your thinking which makes things happens and gives you confidence. My friend just do not let yourself bothered by things happening around focus on your objective and start moving, your circumstances change with your growth so start moving ahead. each experience is a learning, take a lesson from it. I would advise you start your work again, do what activities you like, meet friends, make new friends, help the needy, start learning something new may be some language or skills like cooking, exercise daily, go for a holiday. If still you are not able to come out of it then feel free to talk to me.

It seems to me that you love her very much and need more intimacy from her. Human value system differs from one to another. She values money more than anything else, it depicts her a more practical woman. It does not mean that she is not loving you. She might have been deprived of money in many critical life situations, and learned this value system (and of course the value system of majority of people is money). If you want to win her love and intimacy, start to love what she loves. I mean think and and act in terms of making more money so that she will listen to you in course of time.

What is stuttering?

Stuttering affects the fluency of speech. It begins during childhood and, in some cases, lasts throughout life. The disorder is characterized by disruptions in the production of speech sounds, also called" disfluencies" most people produce brief disfluencies from time to time. For instance, some words are repeated and others are preceded by" um" or" uh" disfluencies are not necessarily a problem; however, they can impede communication when a person produces too many of them.

In most cases, stuttering has an impact on at least some daily activities. The specific activities that a person finds challenging to perform vary across individuals. For some people, communication difficulties only happen during specific activities, for example, talking on the telephone or talking before large groups. For most others, however, communication difficulties occur across a number of activities at home, school, or work. Some people may limit their participation in certain activities. Such" participation restrictions" often occur because the person is concerned about how others might react to disfluent speech. Other people may try to hide their disfluent speech from others by rearranging the words in their sentence (circumlocution), pretending to forget what they wanted to say, or declining to speak. Other people may find that they are excluded from participating in certain activities because of stuttering. Clearly, the impact of stuttering on daily life can be affected by how the person and others react to the disorder.

What are signs and symptoms of stuttering?

Stuttered speech often includes repetitions of words or parts of words, as well as prolongations of speech sounds. These disfluencies occur more often in persons who stutter than they do in the general population. Some people who stutter appear very tense or" out of breath" when talking. Speech may become completely stopped or blocked. Blocked is when the mouth is positioned to say a sound, sometimes for several seconds, with little or no sound forthcoming. After some effort, the person may complete the word. Interjections such as" um" or" like" can occur, as well, particularly when they contain repeated (" u- um- um") or prolonged (" uuuum") speech sounds or when they are used intentionally to delay the initiation of a word the speaker expects to" get stuck on"

Some examples of stuttering include:

" w- w- w- where are you going" (part-word repetition: the person is having difficulty moving from the" w" in" where" to the remaining sounds in the word. On the fourth attempt, he successfully completes the word.)
" ssss ave me a seat" (sound prolongation: the person is having difficulty moving from the" s" in" save" to the remaining sounds in the word. He continues to say the" s" sound until he is able to complete the word.)
" i'll meet you - um um you know like - around six o'clock" (a series of interjections: the person expects to have difficulty smoothly joining the word" you" with the word" around" in response to the anticipated difficulty, he produces several interjections until he is able to say the word" around" smoothly.)
How is stuttering diagnosed?

Identifying stuttering in an individual's speech would seem like an easy task. Disfluencies often" stand out" and disrupt a person's communication. Listeners can usually detect when a person is stuttering. At the same time, however, stuttering can affect more than just a person's observable speech. Some characteristics of stuttered speech are not as easy for listeners to detect. As a result, diagnosing stuttering requires the skills of a certified speech-language pathologist (slp).

During an evaluation, an slp will note the number and types of speech disfluencies a person produces in various situations. The slp will also assess the ways in which the person reacts to and copes with disfluencies. The slp may also gather information about factors such as teasing that may make the problem worse. A variety of other assessments (e. G, speech rate, language skills) may be completed as well, depending upon the person's age and history. Information about the person is then analyzed to determine whether a fluency disorder exists. If so, the extent to which it affects the ability to perform and participate in daily activities is determined.

For young children, it is important to predict whether the stuttering is likely to continue. An evaluation consists of a series of tests, observations, and interviews designed to estimate the child's risk for continuing to stutter. Although there is some disagreement among slps about which risk factors are most important to consider, factors that are noted by many specialists include the following:

A family history of stuttering
Stuttering that has continued for 6 months or longer
Presence of other speech or language disorders
Strong fears or concerns about stuttering on the part of the child or the family
No single factor can be used to predict whether a child will continue to stutter. The combination of these factors can help slps determine whether treatment is indicated.

For older children and adults, the question of whether stuttering is likely to continue is somewhat less important, because the stuttering has continued at least long enough for it to become a problem in the person's daily life. For these individuals, an evaluation consists of tests, observations, and interviews that are designed to assess the overall severity of the disorder. In addition, the impact the disorder has on the person's ability to communicate and participate appropriately in daily activities is evaluated. Information from the evaluation is then used to develop a specific treatment program, one that is designed to:

Help the individual speak more fluently,
Communicate more effectively, and
Participate more fully in life activities.
What treatments are available for stuttering?

Most treatment programs for people who stutter are" behavioral" they are designed to teach the person specific skills or behaviors that lead to improved oral communication. For instance, many slps teach people who stutter to control and/or monitor the rate at which they speak. In addition, people may learn to start saying words in a slightly slower and less physically tense manner. They may also learn to control or monitor their breathing. When learning to control speech rate, people often begin by practicing smooth, fluent speech at rates that are much slower than typical speech, using short phrases and sentences. Over time, people learn to produce smooth speech at faster rates, in longer sentences, and in more challenging situations until speech sounds both fluent and natural" follow-up" or" maintenance" sessions are often necessary after completion of formal intervention to prevent relapse.

Doctor Please tell me that how can i quit inhaling petrol fumes ? I am addicted to it.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Petrol contains a mixture of hydrocarbons (from crude oil) with a variety of substances added to improve its performance as a fuel. Breathing petrol vapor can cause headache, nausea, and dizziness. Extremely high levels can cause fainting and even death. There is no antidote for petrol poisoning, but its effects can be treated, and most exposed persons get well. Persons who have experienced serious symptoms may need to be hospitalized. Repeated exposure to very high levels of petrol can cause poor appetite, weakness, and even brain or kidney damage. Gasoline contains benzene and other additives that may cause future health problems after repeated, high-level exposures. Hydrocarbons in petrol depress the central nervous system and this can create a state similar to alcohol intoxication. Lead adds to the effect of intoxication. Even unleaded petrol can still contain small traces of lead. This can increase the ability of the substance to produce hallucinations. The petrol fumes enter the lungs, and from there into the bloodstream and on up to the brain. It can cause problems to mental and physical functioning. After immediate cessation you must work on building a new life, new coping skills, and better ways of dealing with stress. Without these changes you are likely to take on to some other substance abuse. You need to find healthy ways of enjoying yourself. This form of intoxication is a substitute for healthy and normal pleasures. Talk to a counselor to identify the pain deep down that you are trying to drown out. The hamartic drive (self-destructive by the addiction) is quite strong in you and needs to be addressed in therapy. You may wish to read my book on addictions. If you send me Rs. 250/-, I could mail you a copy.

I have short term memory loss problems during talk with every one. What can I do? Please help.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Natural concentration is when the mind can hold a thought for a long time, when thoughts are under our own control. Without concentration the mind goes here, there and everywhere, jumping like a monkey from branch to branch, idea to idea. When there is a natural concentration, we can control our mind and there is peace. This one-pointed concentration on a thought, holding it for as long as we like, gradually collects strength in the mind and in the self. A strong mind is a mind that is peaceful, stable, satisfied and can remain in the deeper meaning of a thought. There is no waste caused by over-thinking, or the high speed of thought: These are the two greatest diseases of the mind these days, which is why there is so much stress and mental breakdown. Stress can foil concentration and learning ability. Although concentration is different to memory, they can affect each other. Concentration precedes memory. If you are under stress your concentration will go for a toss, then naturally memory will be totally foiled. So meet with a counselor to take care of the stress and your memory will happily return. You can follow these simple rules in the meantime: 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. 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. 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. 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. 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 all junk food.

I am chewing tobacco last 4 years. I am not open mouth. I don't eat spicy food easily. And under my mouth there is bluish colour around it. Please suggest me Thanks.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You should just quit chewing tobacco. Meet an ENT specialist and let that person examine you thoroughly to rule out any extensive damage and to treat whatever harm has already being inflicted. Chewing tobacco is really harmful especially because it is known to cause oral cancer and oral submucous fibrosis (SMF). Since it is an oral habit there are many substitutes that can be used to replace the oral stimulation. Of course, since it is a stimulant you cannot get the same effect and that is worth the loss to give up this very addictive habit. A dense fibrous tissue is deposited in the submucosal layer of the soft palate and cheek, causing disabling symptoms like trismus. It contains betel nuts, tobacco, lime, catechu and permitted spices and flavors. The first four substances damage the sensitive mucosa, causing constant irritation and micro trauma to the mucosa. Chemicals present act as a toxin. The phenol in the betel nut, with its caustic burning effect, destroys the mucosa, causing oral ulcers. The betel nut also contains tannins, which act as astringents, precipitating protein and damaging the mucosa. Altogether, this substance is known to be physiologically addictive. You can use replacements like nicotine chewing gum (if you want the stimulant effect, especially in the beginning) or ordinary chewing gum, hard candy and any other orally satiating substance, especially when the urge is very strong. You would have got conditioned to the habit to different times of the day and different situations. You must particularly avoid those occasions and occupy yourself with something else attractive. You should get regular exercise, eat healthily, and get a good night’s rest every day. Visit a dentist and clean up your teeth and gums to wipe out all the reminders and damages of the habit. You may also get a thorough oral check up and treatment for any damages incurred.

Mr. lybrate-user feeling sleepy during exams usually occurs due to reasons like poor sleep, poor diet and stress. Try to schedule your studies. A target oriented schedule with daily targets to achieve can help you. Avoid smoking and alcohol if any. Try to take few breaks in between. Don't strain to read more than 3 hrs continuously. Use stick notes to read and highlight. Daily do mild exercises and yoga which can make you fresh and energetic for studies. Don't skip breakfast. Eat a healthy and balanced diet. Maintain a proper sleep pattern. If possible go for combined study for few hours daily to motivate yourself and study. Be relaxed and stay healthy. All the best for your exams.

How can I increase my memory Power?

PhD (Psychology), MSc Psychology, MS
Psychologist,
Dear, memory and mind power consists of understanding, storage and recollection of information you learn. Understanding depends on concentration. The more creative you are on doing tasks or reading, the more you understand. Storage and recollection depends on your understanding and how well you review what you have learned. Repetition and review of material learned and other tasks provides easy recollection. You can improve your concentration and total brain power with the help of green leafy vegetables, exercise, creative activities, number puzzles like sudoku etc. Hard work is the key to learning and recollection. Take care.

Dear lybrate-user, I appreciate your move of smoking. When you leave any of the substance immediately after a long term use, you get withdrawal symptoms. Irritability, aggression, sleep disturbance, low mood are some of the common symptoms. These will go with time. Duration depends on the amount of nicotine you were taking. You may consult your doctor for nicotine skin patches or other nicotine replacement methods. Hope this will help. Regards, Vibha.

Dear lybrate-user, welcome to lybrate. At your age, memory problems like amnesia, dementia or alzheimer's are not common. Many young people do complain having problems with memory. These problems are due to either they are too busy or due to anxiety and stress. Busy people use organizers or employ a personal assistant because they can't remember every task. You need to understand this. If you still say, you are having memory problems, we need to check your memory using memory test. Take care.

So every time I used to ask with my friend about her health n recovery whenever I meet her. My first question was always that ki wat is your mother whats going on. Wat doctors say etc. My friend she is also suffering from thyroid that too shared by her. Last Friday I met her in our office washrum. When she opened the door n enter inside the washroom I was standing we greet each other n I asked that wat going on your neck. Dere was some blackish spot. then I came closer to her that was a hair growth. Which was coming come. Earlier she also discussed about dat with me. Dat she is deciding to go with laser treatment for unwanted facial hair. But today she came n saying to me that I want to say something. Don't interfere in my personal life. I can understand your intention. Dat wat she said. I said wat I did. She said the way you said to my black spot I don't like. Every time you r saying something to me. Etc. Please help where I wrong.

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Guwahati
Your friend is most likely undergoing lots of mental pressure. Her mother is suffering from breast cancer & she herself is not in good health. For a female, problem like abnormal hair growth in any parts of body, especially in visible parts is very stressful, difficult to accept & becomes a sentimental issue. Everything accumulating, your friend might be suffering from great emotional turmoil, with which maybe she is not able to cope with. Because of this she might have reacted the way she did today. The hair growth might be disturbing her so much that she does not want to talk about it, as more she remembers it her frustration grows more. So stay calm & try to understand the stress your friend is undergoing, putting yourself in her shoes. She may also have some misunderstanding regarding you or might have misinterpreted your concern. Deal with the situation patiently. Give time to your friend & do not linger the topic now by discussing about it further. When you meet her next time, greet her & just have routine talk without discussing anything. When she will calm down definitely she will think over it again. If it was a reaction to the stress she is undergoing, she will understand & assess this incident better when she calms down & then might talk to you about it. That time you talk your mind openly to her in a cool way & explain to her that you asked her out of concern as a well wisher & nothing else. If you now come to know that she is having some misunderstanding regarding you from either her behavior or through someone known, still do not react nor talk to her about it immediately. Let some days pass by & let the present situation calm down. After some days when she calms down & is at ease, have an open discussion with her. Initially start with a routine conversation & make her at ease. Then tell her that you wanted to discuss something with her if she does not mind. If she is relaxed & responds well, continue the conversation further & discuss this present incident. Explain to her that you asked out of concern only, & if she minds talking anything regarding her personal life, apologize honestly & assure her that you will respect her feeling & will never discuss such topics anymore. If while discussing, you find out that there were some misunderstanding, try to clear it. After discussing this serious topic, again switch back to some routine topic & ease the situation. After that politely take leave, putting an end to the conversation. Most problems have some solutions & every misunderstanding can be solved through healthy discussions.
