Feeling Lackluster To Despair?
Hello, I’m 18 years old. I went to college far from my parents, and I was in semester 2. Initially I went to college not in the department that I wanted, I thought that over time I would be comfortable with the course that I was in, but so far I felt increasingly uncomfortable. Every day I feel unenthusiastic, depressed, anxious and even hopeless and sometimes when I’m alone I feel a little short of breath
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Basically undergoing something that is not liked can indeed cause a person to be unhappy, stressed, and can even cause mental disorders. If the symptoms that you experience cause significant disruption in your life, for example you become unable to learn, you cannot socialize properly (including being more confined to yourself, not wanting to leave the house, constantly having problems with spouse, parents , etc.), can not take care of themselves properly (including if there is a desire to hurt themselves or commit suicide), then the condition has been called a mental disorder. You should immediately see a psychiatrist yourself.
The psychiatrist will see in advance whether there is an organic physical illness that can cause symptoms of mental disorders, or a history of the use of certain drugs or substances which can also cause similar symptoms. If indeed these two things have been removed, then the psychiatrist will begin to see the possibility of certain mental disorders that you experience, such as mood disorders (such as depression), or anxiety disorders, etc.
You should also try to talk to your parents about your problem and ask your parents to understand if you really want to move to a college you prefer. Also try to reduce your stress, relax, do hobbies and other activities that you like, and try to do relaxation techniques on a regular basis such as deep breathing exercises, yoga, or meditation.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
