Mood Swing Accompanied By Chest Pain And Dizziness When Remembering Past Trauma?
I have felt this for a long time, I used to experience sexual harassment by my teacher when I was in the 6th grade elementary school and I was often bullied by my friends after that incident. I was very scared to go to school. I was worried, trembling and always crying without because, I always want to kill myself as if “I feel hopeless” living in this world, I always cry when I am alone and my mood changes so drastically sometimes when I go down my chest is so painful and my head is so dizzy, am I depressed? Please explain, thank you
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
First of all, I'm sorry to hear what you experience. Victims of sexual harassment are innocent and should have the support of those around them, rather than being pressured and bullied.
Basically, if the symptoms that you are experiencing cause a significant disruption in your life (making you unable to learn and work properly, not being able to socialize properly, not being able to take care of yourself properly, including making you have the desire self-harm or suicide), then that condition can already be said to be a mental disorder. There are various types of mental disorders, depression is one of them. Seeing from your story, your symptoms are indeed leading to depression. However, to be able to diagnose depression in a person must be done a direct mental examination, therefore you should do a check with the Psychiatrist for further evaluation and management.
It is best not to postpone your psychiatric examination, especially if your desire to hurt yourself and suicide is strong enough. When you have a desire to hurt yourself or kill yourself, make sure you are not alone. Immediately contact family or friends who can support you to accompany you, or immediately go to the hospital to get medical help (strong suicidal ideation even though it has not been done still requires medical treatment). You should also ask for help from the Child Protection Commission (KPAI) and / or the National Commission on Violence Against Women (Komnas Perempuan) to get psychological recovery assistance and legal assistance if needed.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
