Dear Lybrate user, Thanks for contacting us. It seems like you are going through a great loss and it makes a lot of sense that you are feeling very sad and have a hard time accepting that she is no more. Losing a loved one is a painful experience and it might feel like it's never going to be better. It was only less than two months since she passed away though, so give yourself some time. Allow yourself to feel sad, angry, hopeless - whatever feelings might be there - and then move on. Take your time. Things will change, even though it might not feel like it. Everyone deals with grief differently and there are no right or wrong ways, but there are ways to cope with the pain that might help you. Connecting with others might help you heal. Have you tried talking to others who have experienced something similar? There are support groups of people who are all experiencing a loss of a loved one who can help each other cope with their loss and grief. They often find that they are not only supported by others who can understand them, but also realise that others need them too. If you feel the need to talk to one of us we can certainly set up a session online to do the same. Else do contact a psychologist at Aurangabad to help you process your grief. I hope this was helpful for you. All the best!

1. There is no harm in keeping to yourself but you should be engaged when you are alone. Do things that you love doing - painting, sewing , writing 2. Avoid using phones/laptops/tablets and ipads - I know in a digital it is impossible to survive without these. But make sure your screen time (the time you spend in front of these gadgets) does not exceed two hours. Because a addiction to these gadgets is one of the major causes of depression these days. 3. Physical activity - this is the best remedy for depression. Again pick a physical activity that you love doing - like cycling, badminton, walking, yoga. Practice it for 40 minutes daily 4. You are a young girl and you need t shape your future well.ensure you attend school regularly and spend enough time on studies we all lose our loved ones at some point in our life. But that should never hamper our health and happiness because the ones we have lost would have never wanted to see us depressed If you need more help, feel free to consult

My son is having less listening attitude, he always plays and never listen to somebody and not having the attitude of studying.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
He may be going through some unresolved childhood issues that are surfacing seeking a gestalt ? a completion to his issues. If it comes up in early adolescence, as it is in your son?s case, it is indicative of something serious. Meet with a counselor for teens and describe his entire history from prenatal days. If there is any history of family related disorders, kindly furnish that information too. Check with his school counselor and/or teachers for more information about his behavior at school. There is a lot you will be surprised to hear from them. He may have opened up to one of his teachers. Also if you exhaust him of his energy, he will be more amenable to listening. So the playing is very important and should not be withdrawn. Gradually discipline him with the amount of playing, and the correct time to study. His disobedience must be handled by the father, and he has to play a more significant role in his life, especially at this stage.

I'm 28 years and used to masturbate for more than 12 years now I reduced it because of weight loss small penis size premature ejaculation etc and I feel like I have been affected psychologically because whom ever I saw I started to imagine sexually that too the age of above 30 years female.

Dear lybrate user, you are 28 and at this age you will have higher sexual desire. And if you are single, you will get attracted towards women. And to relieve yourself from an intense sexual urge, masturbation is a healthy option. So you need not feel guilty about it, do not hate yourself. You are not cheating anyone. This is very much normal at this age. You are normal. Masturbating will not reduce your penis size, but you need to be careful about your habit to masturbate. If you are doing it just because you have got used it, or under compulsion, or have got addicted to it, then it is harmful. Then, try to control your behaviour. Thinking sexually about every woman you see, will get you into trouble. This is happening because your sexual urge is not satisfied. I think you need to search for your life partner as early as possible, so that your sexual needs are satisfied and you will have many things to look forward to in life. Life will become more interesting for you. If you are still concerned about your penis size or if you think you are ejaculating prematuredly, then please get in touch with a counsellor/sexologist.

Hello lybrate-user, if you were taking large amounts of alcohol, earlier and are free from alcohol for last 4 years it is best to continue to be alcohol-free. Otherwise you might go back to similar drinking pattern, as before. Complete 5 years of being alcohol-free. Alcohol in any form is harmful.

Dear Gaurav, Welcome to lybrate. 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. If the task is boring, it is natural that that person will sleep or feel sleepy. 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. Please search internet for "effective learning" techniques or you may consult a psychologist. Take care.

I am 21 yr old female studying btech I m having a prob of anger Means I just got irritated and angered and hyper at every small thing then my headache starts I am not understanding what to do. All my wish to live long had cme to and end it feels like to suicide at every small thing. I am really fed up of my life. Please help me what to do.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

There is something form your past that has probably come up for the last time looking for a resolution sometime around 16-18 years and now you have to deal with that anger for the rest of your life, if you do nothing about it now. You are right that it has to do with anger. Do you know of any situation or event that might have triggered this anger in your childhood? if not ask your parents. Then visit a counselor and deal with it. It is this anger that is unexpressed that is giving you headaches and is also provoking the suicidal drive. Your life is very precious and just because you have not expressed some legitimate anger, it can turn around and want to cause you harm! you must be in charge of your feelings and when you do not express them they will take charge of you. In the meantime do a lot of vigorous exercise daily and that will expend the energy of the anger to make you feel better until you seek professional help.

Dear lybrate-user, Your brother might be having hypomanic episodes as during this episode, symptom like alcohol use, over cheerfulness, increase physical activity, increase speech etc. Many times these episode are very short lasting like for few days only. This could be a part of bipolar affective disorder. I would recommend you to consult psychiatrist and get him evaluated. Good and effective treatment are available for his condition. All d best!

I have some fear to go foreign countries and unknown places. How can I avoid it and what is the remedy.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
It is a combination of the fear of change and the fear of the unknown. Do you know that this is normal and that a lot of people experience this? now because of this there is what is called resistance to change: some people will not venture to go abroad and to unknown places. Now that means it is crippling them. If that is how intense your problem is, then you need to work with a counselor. Often the fear is an exaggeration and there may be some contaminated thoughts that play tricks with your mind to stop you from going out. If you externalized these fears, the other person will give you assuring feedback based on facts and that will help you respond differently. You are missing fabulous trips, and visits to countries and places that offer so much excitement. One trip will prove your theory wrong, and another may reduce it even further. Gradually, the fear will dissipate based on your experience and not on your fantasy.

I am 28 years old. Right now I am preparing for civil service. I had developed Sexual obsessions for my aunt. These obsessions are involuntary, repetitive, and unwelcome. Attempts to suppress or neutralize do not work for me and in fact make the obsessions more severe, as trying to make sense of obsessions only gives them more attention and "fuel" The reason behind this obsessions is that when I was doing college I had stayed with uncle and aunt .They called me to stay in their house by themselves. They just called me for some personal motive as soon as their motive was over they trashed me out of their house. My aunt was mastermind behind all this stuff. She defames me. She accused me for unwanted petty things. I cannot forget all these personal trauma till now .i had developed personal hatred for her. I had started compulsive masturbation after that. I just saw her as sex object after that. Whenever I masturbate in my conscious I was degrading her. Now she becomes Sexual obsessions for me. I cannot get rids of her thoughts. Whenever I saw her thoughts again pouring on my mind. I cannot fully neglect her. I had to wish her HALFHEARTEDLY whenever I met her. I just want to get rid of these thoughts. Although in my whole life I cannot forgive her .please tell me solutions.

There is an emotional problem to all of this. You are venting out your anger sexually and imagining that by doing so you are hurting her. Unfortunately, this whole thing is backfiring and this has led to an obsession. Either you learn to forgive your aunt and uncle or you will need to go and meet with a counselor but focus on the anger as an emotion that needs expression. With that done, your obsession will gradually fade away. You could also relieve yourself of this anger by some vigorous workouts but the anger will prevail minus the energy of the emotion. You should also make an attempt to focus on other immediate matters like work and socialize with both sexes and develop an affinity towards members of the opposite sex suitable to your age. This will, in time, help you concentrate on things that really matter to your personal life. You are right, any attempt to get her out of your mind will, by nature, continue to adamantly stay even more strongly in your own mind and trouble you more.

Dear lybrate user, I think it must have been very difficult for you to take insults in the form of teasing. Beating etc since childhood. I sense that these insults have impacted you a lot. Probably no one appreciated you till now. As a result you have low self esteem and low confidence. It appears to me that you believe in what people say about you, hence you think that you are weak and coward. According to me, the reason why you do not retaliate is, that is what your parents/teachers or other elders at home told you to do. Probably, because of your low self esteem, you also thought that you'deserve' this kind of treatment. Though you were angry, you did not fight back, because you thought you were physically weak as well. Emotional abuse is more hurtful than physical abuse. Even if people are making fun of your squint, please accept it as your reality. And look at yourself as a" whole" person and you will realise that you are lucky to have a healthy, normal body. Now please understand that, you are 22 and an adult and not small/weak anymore. Try to get enough physical strength with the help of good nutrition and exercise. Then you will not feel weak, physically. Then make a list of your strengths, that you think you have, read it everyday. Do not take negativity from anyone. Believe in yourself. No one is" born" weak emotionally/morally. The life experiences cause this weakness. Now you need to take charge of your life. Tell yourself that you are valuable. You have many skills/strengths. Keep yourself away from people who try to pull you down. Be with the people who have positive attitude towards life. Only you can help yourself - try to gain more physical and emotional strength. All the best.

I am experiencing loss of concentration and memory. I can't recall things I study.

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.

Dear sir/madam , I am so addicted to cigarette as my cigarette stick counts from min 10 to 20 or even 30 per day. Smoking is deeply rooted into my behavior. It will be great if you advice the way to leave it in a proper way as sudden leaving makes my life imbalance.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. Cigarette contains more than 4000+ chemicals which can cause many physical and mental problems. Nicotine is addictive and causes addiction. Smoking can cause cancer and other physical problems. The best method to quit smoking is to use your will power and sustain it with your will power. There are other methods like deaddiction therapy. I suggest online counseling and deaddiction therapy. Take care.
