How To Deal With Emotions That Are Difficult To Control?
I want to ask for advice from the doctor if my personality is disturbed and emotions are very difficult to manage, what is the way to overcome it? Please help
Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. First actually needs to be ascertained in advance, what do you mean by disturbed personalities and emotions that are difficult to manage. Where do you get the understanding that you are like that, and what are the benchmarks.
This is important because what you think has been interrupted, may not have been disturbed by others, or at least not to the point of being disturbed in the medical definition. For example, there is a teenager who just felt broken heart and sad for days until he declared himself experiencing depression. Whereas medically, depression is not only sad for days, but in terms of time span, at least 2 weeks. In those 2 weeks, he experienced criteria for depressive symptoms such as decreased mood, decreased physical exertion, and no interest in doing something he loved. In addition it can also be lazy to talk, do not want to eat, do not want to take a shower, sleeplessness, and a number of other symptoms.
So indeed regarding your question, first you need to be sure of what happened to you. If the disruption of your personality and the difficulty of regulating your emotions are caused by certain mental illnesses, the way to overcome them might be by taking drugs that can only be prescribed by a psychiatrist. But if the disruption is more on everyday problems that have not reached an emergency stage, it may be enough with advice and efforts to change the usual perspective. But even this has to be confirmed again, actually what kind of person you are, since when you feel like this, what is the trigger, why do you do it, and so forth.
All of this is solely because mental problems are not as simple as physical problems, where if you are sick, just take the pain medicine as initial treatment, or take cough medicine if you cough, cold medicine if you have a cold, stomach medicine if you have an ulcer, and diarrhea if you have diarrhea. Mental illness requires an in-depth interview to find out what kind of person you are, what triggers it and what is the best treatment after a long talk. Therefore, consult yourself to a psychologist or psychiatrist. So, hopefully answering your question.
