Hello I want to know easy method to die I want to suicide. Now there's no hope no reason to live left. I read that inhaling nitrogen doesn't cause pain. But I don't know how to get it. Please suggest any method to die painlessly. Please it's urgent. Please don't suggest me to meet any psychiatrist or anything. I want to quit I don't have a single ₹ left. No family support please help me to die.

Well, this is then very urgent that you seek to live. I suggest you meet a spiritual leader and talk to that person about your feelings of suicide. This is not a forum to provide assistance for those who want to end their lives. |We are here to help you live. And no one should honor your unhealthy intention to end your life: it is illegal too. This feeling is temporary and unless you to reach out to someone you will continue to cultivate this thought. So do not withdraw but meet someone. Life is just too precious and all problems can be resolved with time and support.

The slipperiness of the term stress is both an advantage and a disadvantage. It is advantageous because it is all-embracing and allows a synthesis of many aspects of life's experiences; it is disadvantageous because its referents are diverse. Stress refers both to a subject and a predicate, an event and the consequences of that event how to manage stress relaxation training relaxation skills can be very helpful in managing stress. Time management time-management methods are designed to help individuals restore a sense of balance to their lives. Problem solving problem solving is a skill that is introduced in the later stages of stress-management training. Cognitive restructuring a hallmark of cognitive-behavioral therapy is its insistence that cognition plays a central role in the stress and coping process. If you want to learn stress management. Let me know.

How to cure the side effects of tablets & injection (for schizophrenia)? I was given treatment 9 months ago. Now I have still doubt of little side effects like hypersensitivity sometimes & little headache.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
You are unnecessarily over worked. It is impractical for side effects to occur after 9 months. You seem depressed and there are medicines for it.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. At your age, memory problems like amnesia, dementia etc are not possible. You could forget lessons learned during exam mainly due to performance anxiety. Another reason could be lack of proper understanding and storage of the subject matter. I suggest online educational counselling. Take care.

Dear Lybrate user, At your age, Memory problems like amnesia are not common. Many young people are having problems with memory. These problems are 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. If you want more of my help in this regard, please contact me. Take care.

My son faces some learning difficulties, lack of concentration & minute dyslexia as per our observation since last 2-3 yrs. He is 6 yrs old & will be going to class 1 in dwarka, Delhi, Need guidance & suggestions for ensuring that my son get over this issue as earliest as possible.

Masters in counseling psychology, Counseling psychologist, Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapist
Psychologist, Mumbai
Firstly i would like to request you to not diagnose your son on your own observations, as it needs to be done only by a professional. There is no form of minute dyslexia. Either he has it or not. He can be a slow learner or just have difficulty with learning and concentration, not necessarily a learning disorder. So do not have assumptions as it can be anything else. Kindly take him to a professional psychologist and a pediatrician who will do a complete physiological and psychological evaluation. If he has any learning disorder it will be diagnosed. After that there are many training centers for children with learning difficulties or disorders. He can be trained properly and taught different learning techniques. Please take proper guidance from professionals as proper diagnoses will save you and your son from a lot of trouble.

I am 22 yrs old female. I had a love who was already married when I was 16 yrs old. The man even loved me & shared the same kind of emotion with me one night, but then he went out of it. I still love him & recently contacted him to inform about my success. I am once again shattered in those old feelings. What should I do?

It is absurd a son marrying his step mother because the father is no more. Even if she is your stem mother you are her" son" because she is a young widow, the relatives must be thinking about her future and asked you to marry her. But seriously, it will be detrimental for you and your future to marry her. You can take care of her as an individual or her son as you grow and earn. May be in future she can also find a divorcee or a widower of her age to marry? I do not think it will be a good decision to marry her. You can support her by earning and supporting the family and choose your wife in the future.

My brother 32 years old, drinks more alcohol & smoking a lot of cigarettes. How I can control him to avoid these? please suggest me?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You cannot control him. He must want to leave these habits, ideally. You can however sped a lot of time convincing him that his habit will ruin him and shorten life, which he so much enjoys unfortunately by using chemical means. The more information (without hyping it up) you learn and share with him, the better the chances of him wanting to quit. Ideally he must want to stop these habits. Otherwise it will become a futile exercise. If these habits have become too much then you will need to admit him into a center for rehabilitation. He will need to be there for at least 6 months and they will do detoxification and treatment for the addictive nature followed by extensive counseling. There are medicines that help with the drinking just to ease the initial craving and to act as an antabuse i. E. He will have a serious reaction, if he consumes even a small quantity of alcohol or alcohol based substances. It has to be carefully monitored to see that he not only consumes the medication but is also avoiding alcohol. Ultimately, it is his will power and the support that he receives from the medical fraternity and his close and dear ones. He must also learn to substitute and deal with the oral need, a rigid value system, the script issue, and of course take a 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 him on several measures and precautions he will need to take to stay with his resolve. Even after the rehabilitation he must attend AA meetings and continue this support for a long time. The family will also need to attend some sessions and go for Al-anon meetings for their co-dependency issues. He cannot be treated in isolation because the family has gotten used to his drinking and have made some unhealthy adaptations to somehow cope. Make a serious plan with whoever else’s support he can get and act on it fast. If he is not cooperative, there are some centers that will come and pick him up, after he is completely drunk, and admit him by force. This will however, require the family’s consent.

How quit drinking alcohol periodically. I can't control the feeling to stop drinking. Any easy way to stop the habit.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Only strong will power, determination, attending AA meetings and diverting mind when tempted will help you stop alcohol or may need professional help from a psychiatrist or de addiction centre. Try to do meditation and yoga. Read good books and listen to music and if you are believer attend Bhajans Alcohol causes 7 types of cancer, including breast, mouth and bowel cancers. When you drink alcohol, cancer-causing chemicals are formed. Alcohol also affects hormone levels and makes cells even more likely to be damaged by smoking. The less alcohol you drink, the lower the risk of cancer. No type of alcohol is better or worse than another, it is the alcohol itself that leads to the damage, regardless of whether it is in wine, beer or spirits. And drinking and smoking together are even worse for you. Not everyone who drinks alcohol will develop cancer. But on the whole, scientists have found that some cancers are more common in people who drink more alcohol than others. Every year, alcohol causes 4% of cancers .Tips to cut down on alcohol. There are lots of simple ways to cut down on the amount of alcohol you drink. It can help to work out if there are particular times or situations when you tend to have a drink, whether that’s a bad day at work or a weekly pub quiz tradition, and plan what you’ll say and do differently next time. Have more alcohol-free days a week. For liver health it’s best to have at least 2 days off alcohol in a row each week. Try agreeing on certain days with your partner or a friend and help each some wi other and stick to it. If you are planning to drink alcohol, decide on a limit in advance and make sure you don’t go over it. Swap every other alcoholic drink for a soft one – starting with your first drink. Try shandy instead of a pint of beer, or swap ne for soda and have a spritzer. Don’t stock up on beer, wine or spirits at home. Finish one drink before pouring another, because topping up drinks makes it harder to keep track of how much you’ve had and when you planned to stop. Avoid buying drinks in rounds, that way you don’t have to keep pace with anyone. Tell a friend or partner that you’re cutting down on alcohol, they can support you – or even join you.

Hi Quite a few explanations for your condition. Thank God doesn't sound serious. As you get relief with kayamat tablets n it is good you do not take them regularly. If I was you .I wld start myself on even a lighter laxative .to start off with isabgol n it's various formulations. To figure ouut which one works best for me n in what amounts as excess has its own problems n less n irregular use does not give desired relief. Hope this helps Rgds.

I just don't enjoy the things I used to, and I don't feel much like visiting friends or family. Is this part of aging?

I just don't enjoy the things I used to, and I don't feel much like visiting friends or family. Is this part of aging?
Age is nothing to do with enjoying your activities and not wanting to visit friends and family. And you are just 22! it is a person's mental and emotional state that is responsible for such thoughts and behaviours. I have seen 75 year old people enjoying tremendously in social gatherings and enjoying their life. Yet I have also seen 15 year olds so disappointed in life that they have cut them selves from active social interactions. This means that it is your own experiences which make you respond to life in different ways. 1. I am sensing disappointment and sadness with yourself and others, from your statements. I suggest that you undergo counselling to learn tips and techniques to manage social relationships and expectations from self and others which seems to have taken a hit in your case. Withdrawing from people may be a short term solution but never a long term solution because humans are social animals and need each other for their survival and achieve their fullest potential. 2. Some amount of self awareness and" other" awareness can help you to build bridges again with your friends and being able to appreciate differences while accepting similarities is definitely a desirable trait in people in these fast changing times. 3. Disinterest in your own actions might be coming from doing stuff that you don't want to do or may be below your skill level or some other reason. A counsellor will be able to help you to direct your daily and weekly activities in a direction which makes sense and meaning to you so that you feel a sense of achievement and fulfillment.
