Hello Danny Natta!
Thank you for using the HealthReplies.com consulting service.
The condition that you experience is something that often happens to everyone, even in normal people who do not have psychiatric disorders. Feeling guilty, afraid, anxious, and shadowed by bad memories is a natural thing and on the one hand can be useful so that in the future you can anticipate bad things or be prevented before they occur.
However, in some cases, if the condition persists even after a long time has passed, and starts to interfere with daily activities, rest (sleep) at night, or cause feelings of excessive fear, heart palpitations, fear of socializing, shut yourself in rooms, excessive feelings of sadness, feelings of uselessness, etc., can be a mental disorder that needs to be dealt with. Some conditions or diseases related to this condition are:
Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), as the name suggests, this condition is a condition of stress due to trauma (bad events) in the past.
Depression, is a change in mood, where feelings of sadness become more dominant, can be accompanied by feelings of lack of enthusiasm to do things that were once liked, feeling useless, to thoughts of suicide.
Anxiety disorders, are excessive and uncontrolled worries, even for trivial matters, and interfere with daily activities
The things you can do right now are:
Realizing that bad things have indeed happened, and it is no longer possible to change. It is difficult to get past these thoughts without acknowledging that they have happened and trying to avoid them.
Keep yourself busy with positive activities, such as studying, worshiping, doing physical or sports activities, or art activities and other things that you enjoy
Expressing the problems you have to those closest to you, such as parents, siblings, friends, etc.
Maintaining a regular and nutritious diet, and drinking enough water
Get enough rest (at least 6-8 hours a day)
Avoid smoking and alcohol consumption, or illegal drugs
If your symptoms don't improve for several weeks, or even get worse, such as starting to affect your performance at school or at work, having trouble sleeping, or feeling palpitations, shortness of breath, etc., don't hesitate to consult a doctor general or psychiatrist that you trust. You need to remember that this condition often occurs and many people manage to overcome these feelings, and of course you can too, by staying enthusiastic and self-disciplined.
So, hopefully you can help.
