Sometimes I feel very happy to think over and over again And sometimes feel angry that I want to scream and want to cry And sometimes I feel very guilty to people even though what I do is normal. I also feel that sometimes I want to hurt myself, for example in the bath I feel there is an urge to dip my face into a pan filled with water for a long time and another example I want to hurt my hand with sharp objects that I was carrying. And also arrived “final” in my concentration disturbed and I became forgetful. Is that normal or is there something else? Explanation please. thank you
Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. We understand your confusion. But the condition that you experience can indeed occur in normal people, and can also occur in those who have certain mental disorders.
If in normal people, this is normal, especially if found in women who are approaching their menstruation. Hormonal changes that occur during menstruation, pregnancy and menopause can cause sudden changes in attitude. Another possibility could be also because the circumstances that you experience now support to make you have mixed feelings. However, it is not impossible in this life that we are met by a variety of pleasant things, then various things that are not pleasant in a barrage.
On the other hand, of course there are forms of mental disorders that have such characteristics. For example, mental disorders such as bipolar disorder, brain chemical disorders, depression, and many more. Each of these conditions has their respective handling and not infrequently, difficult to detect. Therefore, our recommendation in your present condition is that since your mind includes the desire to hurt yourself, you should immediately consult a psychologist or psychiatrist. This is important because the condition of mental disorders is never simple. Must find out the origin of the problem, what started the feeling to appear first, what are the risk factors, and what is the best treatment, do you need therapy, or enough with medication, or both. With a direct check, misunderstandings can be avoided and the handling can be more precise.
Meanwhile, understand that whatever your problem is, hurting yourself is not the problem and will not give you pleasure in any form. Forgive yourself, and do everything you want to do as long as it doesn't violate laws and norms. Perform a healthy lifestyle, and immediately check yourself. So, hopefully answering your question.
