Overcoming Mood Swings After Divorce?
at noon, I want to ask about my psychological problem. I am now 25 years old, and I already have one child. But I’m divorced. Every day I feel something is wrong with me. I’m getting emotional very quickly, even I often hit my child, kick etc. A few days ago I was about to bump into someone who I thought was disturbing with his words. Or give inappropriate drinks to customers when I work as a waitress because of annoying customers. I have always had the feeling of wanting to hurt someone who made me angry. My husband was also a victim of my violence. Also I often lie to the point of slandering, and I think my lies are always said just like that and of course without feeling guilty in order to defend myself as well because I feel right. Since childhood until now I have had strange habits such as always doing small things over and over again for my own satisfaction, because if I don’t do it I always feel restless or uneasy. For example, pressing the light switch repeatedly, or looking in the mirror several times, also always rearranging what I put down until it was exactly as before and many more. Also every time I have a pet, I will take care of it as usual at the beginning, but if I get bored I will definitely leave it or I will get hurt. Once, I almost drank insect venom to my neighbour, who was young when he was in elementary school. Does this include mental illness? Please explain, thank you.rnrnThanks for the previous answer from dr. Alyssa,rnI’ve never felt depressed before, it’s just that since I was little I experienced violence from my parents and also bullies from elementary to middle school.rnMy mood often changes, and gets bored very quickly. When my boredom peaks, I always want to hurt other people. Also sometimes it’s hard for me to feel sad.rnrnWill it be dangerous in the future if I don’t see a psychiatrist, or will it gradually go away?rnBecause I’ve had this since I was little.r nrnThank you.
Hi... Thanks for the question given.
Disturbances as you described above can be caused by:
Personality disorders - These personality disorders cause sufferers to have different patterns of thinking and behavior from other people. This can happen because of: experiencing physical and verbal abuse since childhood, broken family circumstances, often neglected since childhood. Obsessive compulsive - a condition where the sufferer does something repeatedly to get a sense of calm. This is done repeatedly because of anxiety and fear if you don't do it Schizophrenia You have been bullied since childhood and have experienced violence from your parents then this can also be the cause of the situation you are currently experiencing. Life experiences as a child, the existing family atmosphere, social relationships with other people greatly affect a person's psyche. Frequent bullying can result in a person experiencing fever, depression, low self-esteem, sleep disturbances, decreased appetite, etc.
If you continue to complain about this and you feel disturbed by it, then you should see a psychiatrist. The doctor will conduct an in-depth examination and interview regarding your complaint. From the results of the examination, the cause of your complaint will be found and appropriate treatment can be carried out.
In the meantime what you can do:
Get closer to God Involve yourself in positive activities and keep yourself busy with positive activities to avoid bad thoughts and boredom Improve relationships with family and friends Don't close yourself off, you can share with friends or family about your situation Hopefully useful
