Causes Often Experience Excessive Fear?
want to ask, why yes I often experience excessive fear, I scare things that do not necessarily happen to me, am I suffering from a psychological illness or just stress?
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
What do you mean by excessive fear of something that hasn't happened yet is excessive anxiety (there's nothing specific that you fear)? Or are there certain specific things that you are afraid of (for example you are afraid of death)? Are your symptoms disrupting your daily functions (for example, making you unable to work / study properly, making you unable to socialize properly, making you afraid to leave the house and continuing to shut yourself in your room, or making you can not take care of yourself, including also makes you have a tendency to hurt yourself)?
Basically, the symptoms of fear or anxiety do not cause you significant disruption of life functions, so you will not be called experiencing mental disorders. However, if there is a significant disturbance in the functioning of life, then these symptoms can lead to anxiety disorders. There are several types of anxiety disorders themselves, including social anxiety disorder, overall anxiety disorder, panic disorder, and specific phobias. If you have anxieties about things that don't really need to worry (for example you are worried about your health, the health of your family, your school, your home security, your safety on the road, etc.), these conditions can lead to a total anxiety disorder . If you have a specific fear of something (for example you are very afraid of death and feel excessive fear just by imagining something related to death, or you have a specific fear of school / school phobia), then you experience a specific phobia.
If indeed the condition of excessive fear or anxiety that you feel does cause a significant disturbance in the functioning of your daily life, you should do a check with a psychiatrist so that you can do further evaluation and management. Some things you can do right now:
Try to do relaxation exercises on a regular basis (such as deep breathing exercises, yoga, meditation)
Try to reduce your stress at school or at work or in the family
Try to get enough sleep every day (7-9 hours a day)
Try to eat regularly in sufficient quantities
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
