How To Deal With Feelings Of Fear And A Little Anxiety?
my name is indra, i am 18 years old. I have only been unemployed for 1 year since graduating high school. I want to ask. Why do I think I like speeding so if for example I read books or articles on the internet I read fast as fast as I can’t relax, even though I read the book 100 things or more. My mind is usually speeding. I think sometimes too far, for example, thinking about when to get married when I die, whether I will go to heaven or hell, I also get strange strange thoughts like always thinking about something and questioning something that is on my mind. I prevented it but how come I can’t. I also often imagine the thought that in the future there will be organizations fighting with each other that really disturbs my mind …. I also often imagine the thought of questioning religion and God … it feels like my faith is lost …. my mood too Very fast up and down because I often masturbate and watch porn videos … every time I see a porn video it feels like my head is dizzy … usually it hurts 3 hours more … I also often imagine that I am a great person in the ministry at This country seems to be just imagining … oh yes, of all my complaints, whether I have a psychological disorder the mind often comes away even though I have been arguing with myself … this really bothers me … I’ve been to a psychiatrist and was sentenced to a disorder the soul is very light …. but the data presented by the analysis material is problematic …. is my mind considered OCD? So I thought about one thing that I had solved but that keeps coming back and forth

Your condition shows symptoms of anxiety. It could be said that everyone has experienced anxiety. This condition is an emotional expression of fear, doubt, and discomfort that normally occurs. Anxiety disorders can become unnatural when the levels are excessive, that is, if they appear too frequently, they can interfere with life functions, interfere with social relationships, cause suicidal ideation, and / or cause delusional disorders or hallucinations.
Symptoms that can occur in anxiety disorders are cold sweat, palpitations, headache, vertigo, abdominal pain, tremors, and so on.
Some forms of psychiatric conditions that manifest as anxiety are:
Obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD): in this condition, a person has a strong desire to do or think something over and over again just for self-relief. If this is not done, people with OCD will experience anxiety and feelings of dissatisfaction. There are various types of OCD, namely: intrusive thought: thinking about things, ideas, or events repeatedly, contamination type: cleaning parts of the body repeatedly, symmetrical type: oriented towards order and symmetrical thickness check type: performs repeated checking rituals, for example making sure the house has been locked or has not been repeatedly stored type / hoarding: storing items that are not used now with the thought that they will be reused at a later time In this condition, a person will feel anxious in almost every thing and every time in his life. Even the smallest and the nonsense was sometimes a source of anxiety. The diagnosis can be made if anxiety persists for more than 6 months. Panic disorder: anxiety that appears suddenly for no apparent reason. Symptoms include heart palpitations, feeling like dying / fainting, cold sweat, chest pain, and feeling like screaming. Specific phobia disorder: symptoms of anxiety appear after seeing / being exposed to certain things that make them afraid even though most people are not afraid, for example cat phobia, phobia of heights Post-traumatic stress disorder: anxiety that occurs after experiencing a very unpleasant experience in the past, such as seeing family killed, involved in serious accident, raped Social phobia disorder: when a person feels anxious when dealing with social situations, speaking in public, or playing a role in public.
