Feeling Sad And Restless After Separating From Your Partner?
I was turned 24 years old, 10 days ago I had a problem with my boyfriend who ended up separating, even though before that there were no problems at all until he suddenly chose someone else and left me. Since that incident until now I feel so sad that I can’t eat, I don’t want to leave the house, can’t do my usual activities and every sleep I wake up feeling very nervous, scared, uneasy, always in my mind and physical right now too follow-up sick. I am afraid that if this condition occurs continuously it will disturb my mentality, so what’s the solution? I have been trying to find a busy life so I don’t always think about it, trying to tell this problem to the people closest to me so that it can reduce the burden but it can’t just remain feeling anxious, anxious, scared, insomnia and unable to eat it continues until now. Actually, I also want to cry, so my feelings are a bit relieved, but I can’t cry at all, even though I’m a person who tends to cry very easily, but strangely, it can’t cry at all.
Good evening Diny, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. We understand your feelings. Sometimes we can indeed be confused by our own feelings. What we feel is often so complicated to say or write. And worse, even though it has been told that it feels like no one is able to understand our feelings except ourselves.
What happens to you, can be depressed and maybe not, we can't be sure without doing a direct examination on you because depression is not a simple thing. There are criteria that must be met and signs that must emerge, not just more than normal sadness.
Therefore, the step you need to do now is leave it to the professionals. Consultation with us is one way, but what you need is a face-to-face examination, where there is interaction, questions and answers, and opportunities to dig deeper into yourself. For that, consult your problem with a psychologist or psychiatrist. You may feel like you have already told your problem to someone else and it doesn't work, but they are not professionals in this field. Psychologists and psychiatrists know what to do when meeting someone like you, and everything they do, even if it's just talking, is already a therapy. Therefore you should immediately check yourself.
Meanwhile, even though we know what you're going through is hard, don't try hard to forget, or give that person up. Let the days go by as usual, while continuing to instill in yourself that whatever is happening now, that is the best for you. Eventually you will forget the feeling. Or better yet, still remembering, but with sincerity and better acceptance. So, hopefully answering your question.
