How To Deal With Prolonged Sadness?
Hello, I want to ask, actually from tk feel always depressed and sad, but I never express it. But until now my feelings and emotions have changed more and more, I feel very irritable, I feel prolonged sadness, I also sometimes can’t control my emotions. Besides that I also now prefer to sleep late at night. I didn’t know what to do, I took my anger and sadness out on myself. Can a doctor provide a solution so that I don’t continue to feel depressed and sad and stop hurting myself
Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Sadness, anger, disappointment, annoyance and various other feelings, both positive and negative, are normal feelings that a person feels, regardless of age. This feeling is a description of our perception of an event or condition.
On the one hand, these feelings are natural if they have a place. Naturally, if a child is sad because his favorite toy is missing, it is natural for a child to be sad when his parents die, naturally an employee is sad when he is fired, and the like. Likewise with anger, and other feelings. Just because it represents negative feelings doesn't mean its existence is an abnormality. In fact, it is often these emotions that move a person to be successful and even better.
On the other hand, when this feeling is out of place, for example when other people are naturally happy with news but they are sad, or when this feeling arises without a definite cause, for example, feeling depressed but without knowing what makes you depressed, sad for no reason what is clear, or this condition lasts long to interfere with the daily life of the person, there may be certain disorders that the person has.
This disorder is generally in the form of an imbalance in body chemistry, especially in parts of the brain, disorders of the development of certain parts of the brain, or as a result of poor childhood development. However, the condition you are experiencing must be further checked whether it is a disorder or not through interviews and thorough and in-depth history research. Therefore we recommend that you consult a psychiatrist about your problem. Your psychiatrist will be able to tell if you really need therapy or not, what kind of therapy, and all kinds of things after going through the examination.
Meanwhile, get to know yourself as best you can, identify what caused your sadness. Write on paper and try to understand, whether it is really a real problem or just the impact of another problem. Tell this to your psychiatrist. So, hopefully it answers your question.
