Good morning, introduce me Sari, 19 years old, a student. I want to ask about the symptoms that I often experience which I find very disturbing. I always feel a whisper (sometimes a shadow) that always corners me, always blaming myself for all the actions that I have done. If I’m not experiencing the disturbances of whispers or shadows, in my opinion the thing that I always fuss with myself is not a negative thing. But the whisper always says that my actions are wrong. For example, yesterday I went out to eat with a friend and had several conversations. But after that, I would be blasphemed and cursed at all by that whisper that the thing I was talking about was the wrong thing. I then worry and worry if my friend will think negatively towards me. Even worse, I received a negative image; I am afraid of heights, I am afraid of wells, I am afraid of road traffic; and sometime my shadow appeared on the highway and hit by a car, I fell into a well, I fell from a tall building. All these things make it difficult for me to sleep at night and often hit my own head unconsciously and are afraid to go out of the house.
Hello, Mrs. Sari. Thank you for the question submitted to HealthReplies.com.
Your complaints can be caused by several possibilities that need to be evaluated directly by a doctor or a psychiatric specialist. To assess and overcome these psychological problems, we strongly recommend that you be examined by a doctor or a psychiatric specialist. Later the doctor will ask for a history of complaints that you feel as well as biopsychosocial factors that are related, conduct a physical examination, and supporting examinations if needed. Through the evaluation process, the right assessment can be carried out and given the appropriate handling.
Handling for psychological problems related to your complaints can be supportive psychotherapy that can be combined with medication. Supportive psychotherapy will help patients to be able to manage stress, identify symptoms, and control themselves when complaints arise so that they are expected to be able to continue their activities optimally.

Mothers deserve appreciation because they are still able to recognize complaints experienced and try to seek professional help. This shows that you still have a pretty good insight.
