Can You Not Sleep, Often Feel Depressed And Think About Suicide, Including Symptoms Of Depression?
Good afternoon, I’m Kiki, 22 years old. I have been unable to sleep for almost 1 month, I was only able to sleep at 4 o’clock in the morning and then woke up at 7 am, I even did not sleep 3 days in a row, on the 4th day I slept at 3 am and woke up at 5. I feel that my life has changed a little lately so that sometimes I feel depressed, and also had the thought to end my life, is this a symptom of depression? But sometimes I also realize, I can still communicate, I can still worship too, should I come to a psychiatric clinic?
Hello Kiki, thank you for using the HealthReplies.com service.
I'm sorry for how you feel right now.
Depression is a mood disorder that causes feelings of sadness and loss of interest that persists. Usually depression can arise due to having experienced a traumatic event, having certain diseases, having certain personalities, alcohol or drug dependence, and the effects of certain drugs.
If sadness lasts for two weeks or more, interfering with activities or until a feeling of wanting to end life appears, this possibility is depression. Make an appointment with a psychiatrist as soon as you can, and don't be ashamed to tell the doctor everything, or if you're not ready to consult a doctor, you can talk about it with other people you can trust.
The things you can do at this time to prevent depression can get worse, including:
Getting closer to God Almighty. Realizing that God could not give a test that exceeds the ability of His servants. Maintain social interaction with people closest to or meet new people It is advisable to exercise for 30 minutes, 3-5 times a week. Besides being good for body fitness, exercise is also good for sleep patterns. It is recommended to sleep adequately and to consume nutritious food Do not consume alcoholic beverages Plan for life Can contact emergency services by the health ministry, which is 119 that can accommodate complaints of people who can not be open to tell the problem to the closest people. Or you can call the number if at any time you have uncontrollable thoughts about suicide attempts. That is the information that I can provide, hopefully I can help you.
