How To Deal With Depression For A Long Time?
Hello, thanks for the question to HealthReplies.com.
Depression is a mood disorder (mood disorder) that occurs with several symptoms such as not being able to feel happy, unable to feel energized, unable to feel calm, always sad, anxious, and so forth. To diagnose this depression, symptoms must last for a minimum of 2 weeks.
For more details about what depression is, see the following link:
We recommend that if the complaint that you feel has been felt for at least 2 weeks, you should consult a psychiatric specialist (mental specialist). Later the doctor will determine whether it is necessary to get medication therapy or just need a consultation with a doctor. Because depression is also divided into several classifications, there are mild, moderate and severe depression. If you have entered the moderate-severe stage, usually the psychiatric specialist will provide therapy in the form of drugs.
Things that can prevent the recurrence of feelings of sadness and so on, include the following:
- running a favorite hobby
learn to control your heart, mind and feelings
- try to think positively and give thanks a lot for all the blessings that Allah has given
- many get closer to Allah by doing a lot of worship, dhikr, and reading the Koran.
The healing depression is determined by the patient himself, if the patient is determined to recover and tries to make recommendations from the doctor and take medication regularly if needed, then it is possible to recover, but if there are severe triggers, it does not rule out a recurrence.
Even the time needed for mental therapy for each person will be different, better you will later be explained in more detail by a psychiatric doctor to make it more clear and precise :)
Thus, hopefully useful :)
