Excessive Sadness Accompanied By Feelings Of Uselessness And Suicidal Ideation?
Hello, I’m Deswita. I want to ask, I am a child from a broken home family, I feel nothing is dear to me, I take it out looking for affection for my lover, when I really love, and feel the spirit of my life back because of him, and when my lover leave me, I always feel useless, have no purpose in life, no one loves me, and I have tried suicide twice, can that be called derpresi? And do you need medicine?
Good morning Deswita, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. We understand your feelings. Depression is a condition of certain mental disorders characterized by excessive sadness. This excessive sadness is indeed a subjective symptom, and therefore there must be other supporting symptoms such as lazy caring for themselves, feeling weak and unhealthy all the time, a decrease in interest in various things that he once loved, and various other signs which must continue continuously for at least 2 weeks.
Your condition can indeed be the basis for depression, but there are also other conditions, such as bipolar disorder, anxiety disorders, and other personality disorders that arise from events like this. We suggest that you should consult your condition with a psychiatrist. The focus here is not whether you are really depressed or not and whether you are actually sick or not, but the fact that you have tried suicide twice is what you need to study further. You may later tell anything to your psychiatrist, and in contrast to treatment by other specialists, even the moment of interviewing health problems and life history that you do that too has become part of therapy. So it is not impossible that before taking the drug, you already feel better. Whether you really need medication later will be determined by your psychiatrist.
Meanwhile, in the end you have to realize that in this world we must not lean too much or depend on anyone. As time goes by, you will realize that no matter how great a person is, how good he is, however close he is and however dear he is to us, we will still be disappointed. And this is natural, because everyone has different characteristics and desires. But that does not mean you have to give up. Every person in the world must have been disappointed and there are still successful people. In fact, it is not uncommon for successful people to start success from the disappointment of others. Therefore, be independent, take certain steps, and immediately check yourself. So, hopefully answering your question.
