Hi lybrate-user can understand your big loss. But life is to keep on moving. Get out to make new friends or find someone old friend whom you were closed too and discuss the things and find new good freind. Think positive. You have one life and you have parents too who are looking for you.

I lost somebody last year so I feel sad what should I do and I am very alone without her.

You are going through grief, which is normal after loss of a loved one. Time is the healer for the emotional and behavioral changes, however if your depression is severe enough to affect you in a significant manner, kindly consult a psychiatrist for short term antidepressant medication, depending on the complaints.

Anxiety disorders are a category of mental disorders characterized by feelings of anxiety and fear, where anxiety is a worry about future events and fear is a reaction to current events. These feelings may cause physical symptoms, such as a racing heart and shakiness. There are a number of anxiety disorders: including generalized anxiety disorder, a specific phobia, social anxiety disorder, separation anxiety disorder, agoraphobia, and panic disorder among others. While each has its own characteristics and symptoms, they all include symptoms of anxiety. I need to know more about your anxiety so that I will be able to diagnose it properly and provide you tips to overcome and manage your anxiety. Take care.

Depression, stress and anxiety has a direct affect on sexual arousal and performance. A psychiatrist can suggest you the medication for dealing with depression. Besides medication, thought management is an important aspect which is very useful to manage and cope with depression. When your depression reduces and the stress levels come down, you will see an up in your sexual arousal too. Some key guidelines: do exercise, as it releases the same chemicals like dopamine and serotonin which a psychiatrist will give you for depression. Exercising is a natural way to keep depression at bay. 2. Eat healthy: stay away from junk, sweets, maida, fried foods. Eat whole grains, complex carbs, food supplying fatty acids, greens and fruits. 3. Sleep well for 7-8 hours everyday: this detoxifies and rejuvenates the mind and body naturally and reduces stress, tension and worry. 4. Stop thinking too much and worrying: there are something's that are within your control to change and improve. There are some things that you cannot change because they are outside your control for eg weather. Learn to differentiate these things and focus your attention on what you can change positively. Also, treat life with less seriousness. Add humour to your life. Meet people who are friendly, lighthearted, problem solvers and progressive thinkers. Indulging in a hobby or two once or twice a week, takes away the pain and suffering of everyday living, if you don't like what you do and whom you interact with. 5. Attitude of gratitude: each day count your blessings and see how fortunate you are and what you have in life, rather than what you don't have in your life. This will help you to feel happier, content and satisfied with what is working in life and take your mind away from what is not working in your life. If you have any queries, please contact me on private chat.

I am a 20 years old male. I am suffering from panic disorder and anxiety and my doctor recommended me inderal 10 mg and zapiz 0.25 mg medicines as per my requirement. Please advice me that can I take these pills when I had a panic attack. And advice me home remedies for anxiety.

The international guidelines for treatment of panic disorder are ssri's - a group of antidepressants to be taken for 3-6 months as a course. Inderal and zapiz are only palliative or temporary solutions not a cure for panic disorder.

Dear lybrate user. Welcome to lybrate. I can understand. Loosing someone near and dear is called grief and depression related to grief is pretty normal. But this sort of depression does not stay for long. This depression gets cleared within a span of some weeks. The best option for you is to undergo counseling and depression related therapy. Anyhow, there is nothing to worry. Most of the psychological problems can be cured with scientific therapy methods. Take care.

My relationship is in a mess I'm not getting sleep and I can't eat anything beacuse of the stress my boyfriend restricts me in each and everything I do he is abusive abt my pains but he loves me equally too much he loves also what should I do.

In a relationship both partners need to have mutual respect, communication and understanding of each other. If any of these components are missing, relationship would suffer. Its important to understand each other as individual selves and giving personal space and freedom, otherwise conflicts are likely to arise from both sides. To discuss each other needs and what is it that needs to work upon in a relation is another significant requirement. For this, consult a clinical psychologist or a couple therapist who can understand the problem in detail.

Dear lybrate user, your friend is not falling in" love" it appears more like infatuation. He is getting distracted easily. Probably there is some trouble at his home. As a friend you can motivate him to have a dream and ask him to make a realistic and concrete plan to achieve his dream. Try to give him a lot of love and appreciation. He probably has low self esteem. Try to boost his confidence by showing him his strengths. At the same time please remember, that it is his life and he needs to take responsibility for his actions. You cannot make him love someone or you cannot stop him from loving someone. Understand your own limits. Take care.

You should do career guidance and Aptitude tests to determine if you are in the right profession. You may then do the following: 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 is 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. 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.

in this stage better to join small job. if you go regularly job. your moods are very good. searching for good job. thinking always about job. it is not good to you. better to join small job. after joining job. do the job perfect manner. not for money. it improves your personal status. later search for good job. at the time of doing job. we search so many good jobs. if not come good job. then search another one. but you always do some job. you may not control yourself with out job. so it is better to do small job. then you search. dont think aloneness. dont sit in home. spend most of the time with your friends and family members. take some one help regarding job. talk your elders about job matters. share your internal feelings and problems with them. no one is not settled in one day. every one crossed this stage. so opportunities are come in future. dont feel depressive. be positive and be optimistic and be sociable. your alone thing is the result of bad thoughts. so better to share others. it is always good to you. be friendly with others. read some good inspirational books. make a busy schedule. always feel comfortable and relaxed manner. ok all the best.

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. I can provide you more tips. Take care.

Hello sir. I am a 21 year old student currently preparing for civil services. I have always been a bright student but lately my problem of over thinking (EXTREMELY negative thoughts) and overstress has exacerbated to an extent where forget concentrating, I am not even able to form proper sentences while speaking/writing. This has reduced my confidence levels drastically because I was always a good performer at debates and writing competitions in my school days. My father is an alcoholic so I do not share a friendly relationship with him. We hardly talk. I have always been sort of an introvert but now it has become very hard for me to bear with this loneliness as the only person I had in my life hates me now. I think I'm slowly going into severe depression because now that I am not able to study properly, I feel like I will not achieve my goals and all my aspirations will merely remain dreams. I wish I could emphasize more on how tough this has become for me but I fail to explain it to anyone perfectly. I do not want a solution to my problems, I just want my confidence and enthusiasm back so that I can concentrate on my studies and ignore all my problems.

Hi Librate user Good to know that you are preparing for civil services exam.to succeed in this exam you need a long term motivation. so it is good to keep yourself motivated at all times by hanging a picture or motivational quotes on your study wall. you should remove all the pressures from your mind and become independent completely.and try to focus only on your goal. Always keep in mind why you are passionate about clearing this exam and start feeling that you are very close to your destination. always remember you are the creater of your own destiny. eat healthy, sleep well, study hard,believe in yourself and achieve your goal. All The Best.

Dear, you must be able to understand concentration, attention span, recollection and distraction. If you are able to watch a movie for two hours continuously, if you are able to play a game for an hour, then you do not have any concentration problems. You can't be attentive towards your studies because you are not interested in it. You are able to watch movie and play game because you are interested in it. Human cannot be attentive towards anything for more than 10 minutes. Then you should study in such a way that your attention is continued and make the subjects are interesting to you. Effective learning techniques should help you. Recollection depends on anxiety, stress and other physical and circumstantial factors. Distractions while studying are plentiful. You should be able to overcome distractions or avoid distractions. Please understand the above. Change your study style and attitude accordingly. Take care.
