Overcoming Prolonged Sadness?
Good afternoon, I am 18 years old. I often feel sad, sometimes can not regulate my mood, sometimes even not in the mood to eat. Maybe because there is a problem, but it is not a serious problem. Sometimes there is no problem I can also feel sad. In the past year I was often sad and often thought to end my life. But now I have not even thought about killing myself, I only feel the same sadness. It feels tight and empty in the heart. I also feel tired with this state of affairs, continuous sadness, I want to not be sad anymore, but very difficult. Is there a medicine that I need to take or something I need to do? Thank you.
Hello, Emilyhansen. Thank you for the question submitted to HealthReplies.com.
We can understand the feeling of discomfort that you are experiencing. There are several possibilities that can cause complaints as you experience and require direct examination by a doctor, including:
Episodes of severe depression (symptoms: loss of interest and pleasure, moods of sadness, fatigue, decreased activity, decreased self-confidence, withdrawal from association, feeling guilty and useless, ideas for self-injury or suicide; symptoms arise at least at least for 2 weeks; symptoms have made the patient unable to carry out work or social activities logical] and / or hallucinations) Comprehensive anxiety disorders (excessive anxiety and worries, sometimes illogical, occur throughout the day, felt within 6 months or more, may be accompanied by motor tension such as headache, trembling) We advise you to consult immediately with a doctor or a psychiatrist. The doctor will evaluate the history of complaints and related biopsychosocial factors, make a comprehensive physical examination, and if necessary carry out a supporting examination. Thus, an appropriate assessment can be obtained so that appropriate handling can be given.
Doctors can provide supportive psychotherapy to help patients manage stress, identify symptoms, and control themselves if complaints arise. If needed, the doctor can also give medicines to help patients feel more comfortable and deal with the disease.
You are advised to talk about complaints felt to those closest to you who can be trusted to support therapy. Support from people closest to you really helps in successfully solving problems. Continue the activities that you enjoy so that you can channel your feelings through positive things.
Thus information from us. May be useful.
