Mind Over Matter | 15 Jan, 2019

Sentinel Digital Desk

I am pursuing LL.B. But my health condition is not very good. Mentally and physically, I am very weak. I have sexual problems. I am a 27-year old boy. My problem is that I feel most of the people, basically my neighbours, see me with red eyes. They always feel jealous about me. Their intention is only to spoil my career, to scold me, to make me feel fear, to threaten me so that my mind is diverted to different ordinary matters which may spoil my life. My heart is not very strong. I always get nervous with all these stupid things. They always try to put me in danger and want to give me mental harassment by their attitude. I can't tolerate the red eyes of theirs. But I am bound to tolerate them because they want me to protest against them. I lost my father at the age of 9. I have just my mother. Please give me a good remedy.

Answer: I have gone through your problem. You have written about several issues. It would not be possible to provide a direct solution for these issues. I suggest you consult with a qualified mental health professional at your place of stay. Face to face discussion and assessment would be effective in this matter. Accordingly, intervention can be planned. Take care. All the best!

  1. I am 10 years old. I am very fat. Everyone teases me in school. My mummy scolds me every day for eating lots of food. What should I do? Please tell me.

Answer: You need to listen to your mummy if she tells you not to eat too much. Eating too much is not good for your health. Do you do any exercise? You need to exercise regularly if you want to lose weight. Take up some outdoor sports. You can even take up swimming. Ask your mom. As regards to food, make sure you do not eat junk food like burger, pizza, cold drinks, ice cream etc. Try and have fruits and vegetables with your food. You can ask your mom to take you to consult with a dietician who will give you a list of food that you can and cannot eat. That would be helpful for you. All the best!

  1. Dear Madam, I am writing to you with a problem. I feel sleepy all the time. I also feel very low. I do have problems at home but not so many. Can you help me out? Please do. I feel lonely.

Answer: Hi dear, I am sorry to hear about your troubles. I wish you had sent me a few more details. It would have been easier then. All I can suggest to you at this moment is to get a health check-up done at the earliest. We need to rule out the physical cause, if any, for your excessive sleep issue. Apart from that, do come over for a counselling session so that we could sit and assess exactly where your problem area lies and which are making you feel so low. That would be the best. Take care.
