Noon, I was 20 years old when I was 16 years old I often feel sad, afraid to talk to other people without cause. Until now I have had very bad mood changes, in 1 day I can feel so happy so calm but can change in a few hours to be bored, sad and feel scared. This happens when I am menstruating and outside of menstruation often occurs, what should I do to reduce my mood that is always changing?
Hello Hasna, thank you for the question.
From puberty to young adulthood, it often fluctuates or increases
decreasing hormonal conditions in the body, resulting in the appearance of changes
quite significant. Starting from Physical changes, like starting to grow breasts, even
right down to emotional changes. These conditions are generally quite normal and will be
disappears on its own.
However, there are a number of things that can cause this to occur outside of puberty.
The existence of emotional trauma, for example, pressure at home, at school, or
elsewhere, it can affect a person's emotional state and can
cause psychological trauma
Environmental conditions that are not supportive or more often make it break
enthusiasm, this can cause a person to become insecure
Environmental influences, for example if you are in an environment that is easily ignited
emotions or fighting, then this can indirectly change mood conditions
Conditions of mental disorders, such as schizophrenia accompanied by delusions and delusions, then
depression, where the sufferer tends to withdraw from the environment and
loss of interest, and other conditions
My advice, it's best to consult your problem to a psychologist or psychiatrist (
Mental Health Specialist) to get a thorough examination. Later
The doctor will collect data consisting of:
Medical interview, to see physical complaints, are there any other disorders experienced
Psychiatric interview, where it is intended to understand how complaints or
symptoms that someone has, and how these affect your condition personally
and your condition with the environment
Physical examination and other support (if needed)
Try it for now, you take a deep breath and exhale, do it
this until you feel calm. Also, try to divert your thoughts when
When this occurs, get in the habit of breathing in and counting 1 to 10 before you want
vent your emotions. Find a close friend or person you can talk to
take your heart out. If this condition gets worse, and there are thoughts
to harm yourself, you should see a doctor right away.
