Dear lybrate user. I can understand. At your age, memory problems like amnesia, dementia etc 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.

Am a 28 year old. Since 5 year am a chain smoker. Now am too weak. I wanna improve my health and I want to stop my smoking habit.

Doctor of Naturopathy & Natural Medicines, DM - Clinical Haematology
Dietitian/Nutritionist, Agra
Obviously, anyone who smokes should try to quit, regardless of caste, creed, age, gender or social status. Many of my patients who are smokers have a particularly difficult time kicking the habit. I suspect this is related to dopamine imbalance. Smoking releases a chemical response that mimics pleasure. By keeping your stress level in check, you will have an easier overcoming this habit. Here are some additional suggestions suited to you. • Keep a journal to record your progress on a stop-smoking program. Record the benefit you experience from not smoking. • Exercise vigorously to cut down on cravings. • Avoid situations that normally trigger the desire to smoke. Be especially wary of situations that cause anger, boredom, or depression. • When you have the urge to smoke, perform this deep breathing exercise: 1. Inhale deeply through your nose. 2. Slowly exhale through your mouth. 3. Repeat 4 to 6 times. • Swallow Indian "Shyam Tulsi" . Never chew it, Tulsi has a lot of Mercury in it. Thus, you can rather swallow Tulsi leaves rather than chewing it and hurting your teeth. Moreover, you can also use the juiced form of the Tulsi leaves as a herbal medicine. Precisely speaking, when you apply raw Mercury on your teeth, your teeth will start falling immediately. Tulsi reduces the craving for smoking.

We all have some bad memories- but we have to move on. This you can do first by forgiveness- forgive yourself or others for whatever may have gone wrong. Second, set yourself new goals in life. Plan to achieve those goals. Focusing in the future will help you get rid of the bad memories. Learn from your mistakes- take the learning and move ahead. Have faith in your abilities.

Sleep is not a cure for stress although it may help in relieving it. You need to examine what is causing the stress and go after it to seek a resolution. When you do not express feelings you will land up with stress. Check what feelings you are not dealing with and then tackle that to find relief which is a permanent solution: sleep will give you temporary escape and will also give you the necessary rest from the day’s stress but it will never resolve it. In fact, you may feel fresher after good sleep to then take up the stressors of the next day. But to resolve it you need to deal with the unexpressed feelings which may have become a habit from childhood. Meet with a counselor and that person will help you process your feelings and find ways to express them once and for all and give you permanent relief. The rudeness is a sign that you are scared. so meeting a counselor is mandatory to your​ resolution.

Your life is in your hands: You do well for yourself and do not depend on your husband to give you any attention if he is not willing to give it. If he genuinely loves you, he will not depend on what you bring into the situation. If you are patient and still caring towards him, you will win him over in time. For your depression I recommend that you do the following: 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.

I think I am suffering from some psycho problem. Actually since the time of school I had no frnds and those who I have. Lost them just coz I was studious and simple guy. From there only I suffered from high mental pressure. I felt so alone and keep writing stories on this topic only and always crying in my room for hours and suddenly starting talking myself. After 5 years I was out of that but in College I lost my love and was back into that past but one girl become my friend and we had physical relationship too to let myself get out of that depression. But after 1 year of physical relationship we had. I felt ignored when I read her chats with other people. I am unable to accept that she is only my best friend. I live alone in pg and also not in contact with neither of my brothers and sisters nor any College friend but only her. I am not getting myself what I want only life as I kept on hiding things from all and crying in my room after College time. I want to know why I am unable to take things normal as other people and why keep looking in my past and so emotionally weak. Here also I am unable to define my problem properly.

Hi its basically you want to be loved by your friends and family. Since you are living alone in pg, you feel ignored and on the same hand, you have less no. Of friends which makes you realise this time and again. However, being in relationship with any one is perfectly fine until you and the other person are sharing some kind of happiness. You are more or less insecured about losing your loved ones due to the incidents that happened in your life. This is the major reason that you constantly dwell in past. You should be determined to get healthy and fine like others ; with proper medication and conselling, you ll get yourself back. I need proper detailed history of your to work upon your case and give you best possible results.

Hello everyone . I am a student. I am suffering from over thinking. I think all the time. When I study or read news paper for sometime reading goes well but after a while I lose in thinking and I don't know about it that I am thinking something. This has been happening with me for 2-3 years. When I walk or traveling by bus, due to thinking I forget to stop where I want. When I write notes in classes same spelling on same page I write wrong because of thinking. This year I appeared in upsc examination, my preparation is good for examination, just before examination night I didn't sleep because "if I will fail then what will happen" this thinking was in mind and the whole night I didn't sleep, this is not stopped here same things happened before my GATE examination. For avoiding this over thinking I tried meditation but I didn't continued it after 20 -21 days. I am very worried about it. I am not living in present. I think always about future like" what will happen " and past" why this happened or if it is not happened then what will be happened? I want to get rid from this hell.

Hello Lybrate user...What you are suffering from are excessive ruminations and worrying thoughts about future. This is a common problem for today's youngster population like you as the competition level has increased. This decreases a person's efficiency, concentration and outcome from work or studies as in your case. Yoga you have tried but you did not continue, which I suppose was because of not being interesting. I propose to you MINDFULNESS THERAPY as the management plan. It is a very effective way to get ourselves living in the present and increases our efficiency and concentration, while decreases stress also. It will help you to live each and every moment of your life being fully aware. The other thing which you can do is that while you are studying you try to gain a place with full silence, away from all gadgets and social sites. Also try to plan your studies before you start. The plan should be such that you keep less number of hours per day in the beginning and as the days pass through you increase the reading hours. Say for example 2 hours a day for initial 1 week, than 3 hours a day the next week and so on until you reach the optimal time. The ultimate concept is not to make studying a burden by starting with long study hours from beginning, rather keep your interest moving gradually by slowly increasing the duration of study and gaining pace. I hope best for you. Take care

Hi lybrate-user, for many men anxiety and pressure to perform is a major contributor to premature ejaculation. Relax and remember that your partner probably cares about more than the timing of your orgasms, and that premature ejaculation doesn't mean you can't still be good in bed. Take climaxing out of your expectations. Instead of viewing intercourse only as a means of achieving orgasm, reframe it as relaxing, pleasurable time with your partner that you'll enjoy regardless of ejaculation. Discuss this new mindset with your partner, so that he or she can stop pressuring you, intentionally or not. If you notice yourself getting too excited, turn your thoughts to something distant, abstract and unsexy, such as math, rush hour traffic or baseball. Only dwell on it long enough to give yourself a short break from arousal, maybe 5 to 10 seconds, then refocus your attention on your partner. Avoid thinking of a topic that is going to make you stressed or cause you to lose your arousal entirely. Edging, or orgasm control, is the practice of maintaining a high level of sexual arousal while delaying ejaculation. It takes practice, but it gets easier over time. Here are two methods recommended by the national institutes of health to stop premature ejaculation: stop-and-start method: have intercourse as usual until you feel yourself coming uncomfortably close to orgasm. Immediately and abruptly cease all stimulation for 30 seconds, then start again. Repeat this pattern until you're ready to ejaculate. Squeeze method: have intercourse as usual until you feel like orgasm is seconds away. Abruptly stop other stimulation and gently squeeze your thumb and forefinger around the part of the penis where the glans meets the shaft (or your partner could do this). After squeezing for a few seconds, pause all stimulation for another 30 seconds before resuming intercourse. Repeat this pattern until you're ready to ejaculate. All the best.

What Are Signs of Depression

MD - Psychiatry, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Delhi
What Are Signs of Depression

Depression refers to a state of mind when you are feeling low due to persistent sadness and loss of interest. Depression is a very common emotion you might have experienced at least once during your lifetime. But if depression is chronic and long lasting for you, then it indicates that you are suffering from clinical depression.

Most mental and emotional health issues are inconspicuous in nature and, therefore, cause more harm than they otherwise should. Most people live with a number of symptoms of depression without even realizing it or do little to address it. When the depressive symptoms last for more than 2 weeks and affect the individual's personal, social or occupational life, it is known as clinical depression or major depression.

Here are certain signs to watch out for to determine whether a person is struggling with depression:

  1. A significant change in sleeping patterns: If you've been experiencing insomnia lately or have got a habit of oversleeping, then these might be symptoms of depression.
  2. Cultivation of a pessimistic approach about everything in life: You feel a sense of hopelessness and that your situation in life will always be the same without any improvement is a sure shot sign that you are suffering from depression
  3. Anger or irritated mood: Having a low level of tolerance, getting angry quickly or always being in an irritated mood can be a prominent sign of depression
  4. Sudden variation in weight or appetite: If you suddenly find that you have lost or gained a significant amount of weight without any substantial reason, then chances are high that it is happening because of your depression
  5. Feeling of guilt without any particular reason: If you have started feeling guilty or constantly blame yourself for everything you've done in the past then the reason behind this may be your state of depression.

Depression is as curable as any other illness. Both medical management and psychotherapy are helpful in treatment. Type of treatment depends on patient's condition, the severity of illness as well as availability.

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.

Tremors, feeling anxious or nervous, sense of panic, sweating, increased heartbeat, feeling of impending doom, stomach discomfort, dizziness etc are signs of anxiety. These can be debilitating. If the anxiety us overwhelming, consult a psychiatrist at the earliest. With the right medication and counseling, it is likely your symptoms will improve. Other than that, try yoga, deep breathing, meditation, moderate exercise, progressive muscular relaxation and guided meditation.

Now as the child is getting aware of the abuse and want to share it with her parents. What should be the reaction of parents so that child comes out of this mental pressure before taking her to any counselling?

Dear , first of all stop feeling guilty for not being able to protect the child. We can't protect every time. Making them aware is important. Sexual abuse is not fault of victim. You need to assure her she is valuable as before. It's not her fault at all. And then take her to counsellor. Childhood voids should be filled asap.

Dear lybrate-user, welcome to lybrate. The duty of your mind is to think. You cannot control your mind's thinking. Once you just leave your mind without diversion, it always end up in negative territory. But certainly you can divert your thinking. You can make your mind to be always positive by engaging in creative activities, hobbies, games and passionate towards whatever you do. Thereby you can reduce your stress and tension also. Once you can do this, loss of proper sleep and stress also can be made normal. Please consult a psychologist for more advice. Take care.
