Hi. Thank you for your question for HealthReplies.com.
The condition you experience can be caused by a triggering factor in the form of extraordinary life stress to cause severe stress or prolonged stress. The body's maladaptive response to prolonged stress causes the adjustment mechanism to be unable to cope with the condition so that it will interfere with your social function in everyday life.
This condition itself is divided based on the time since the stressor occurred, in this case, since you received less favorable treatment from your boyfriend. If the stressor occurs within the last 3 days, then the condition can be called an acute stress reaction. If the stressor occurs in the last 1 month and can interfere with daily activities, it is called an adjustment reaction. If the condition you are experiencing now occurs within 6 months of the stressor accompanied by flashbacks, it is called post traumatic stress disorder.
Some things you can do:
- positive thinking
- change the way you view stressors
If the disturbance you feel can interfere with your daily activities, we recommend that you consult a psychiatrist or psychologist.
So, hopefully this is useful
