Feelings Of Restlessness When Close To Other People?
Hello Doc, I am 16 years old, from childhood I often felt anxious if I was too close to other people, including my own family. Let alone close to other people, even with my cat I feel anxious if I get too close. I have experienced this anxiety since I was little. This anxiety really disturbed my comfort. I am worried that if someday I will be married I feel this way about my partner. For whatever reason, I feel disgusted if I get too close to other people. The anxiety is caused without cause.
Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. A person's psychological condition, which in your case is discomfort when feeling close to other people, often doesn't just appear, and has a past cause or trigger for why the mental condition eventually arises. This is explained in the theory of psychic determinism, where this theory suggests that all mental processes do not occur spontaneously or accidentally but are determined by unconscious attitudes or mental conditions that have occurred before.
So what we want to say is that maybe you forgot, but there could be events in the past that are the basis of your current discomfort, such as:
Lack of bonding between mother and child when baby Has been hurt by loved ones as a child Inconsistent, haphazard or irresponsible care during infancy
However, the attitude you have can lead to your socialization disorder in the future, so we suggest that you consult your problem with a psychiatrist for further tests to detect what disorder you are experiencing. Your psychiatrist will probably do a light test by asking you to fill out a form to help narrow down the possibilities. The treatment given by a psychiatrist is not only in the form of drugs, but it can also be with group therapy, hypnotherapy, attitude therapy and so on.
Meanwhile, try to introspect on yourself, when this discomfort first arose. Think back to whether you used to be comfortable around other people or not. And if you feel disgusted, think about what made you see the thing as disgusting and tell your psychiatrist about this. This will greatly assist the psychiatrist's detection process. Hopefully answered your question.
