Good afternoon, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. We understand your feelings. Mental trauma can indeed have the same long-term or even worse impact than physical illness. Many people are physically ordinary, there are no specific illnesses, and socially do not have problems, but in his heart stored bad memories that torment his mind.
With regard to the traumatic experience that you experience, there are various kinds of mental disorders that can occur, including:
Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) Depression Bipolar Disorder Phobia Anxiety disorder
And various other disorders along with the potential for personality disorders that can occur. Whatever it is, mental disorders can not be diagnosed and treated just like that without meeting in person. Our advice is that you should consult with a psychologist or a psychiatrist directly so that you can explore more about your personality, your likes and dislikes, how deeply the incident has left an impact on your mind, how it affects your life now and so on. These experts will determine whether you need certain therapies, and also need medication or not.
In the meantime, try to find someone close and you trust to share your story. Try to step away little by little from your past by trying to make sure that no matter what your past is, you still have a future that you can form so freely. If all of that still doesn't work and you still can't control your feelings, it means that you really have to get yourself checked by a doctor. So, hopefully answering your question.
