Prolonged Sadness Accompanied By Increased Sleep Time?
Hello doctor, I’m 19 years old. R nI want to know if I am depressed or not, r nDuring this week, I feel sad almost all the time. R n2 times I meet friends I can chat happily , but in my heart I still feel sad. r nFor the past few months I rarely socialize because I am preparing myself for the entrance selection for PTN. r nMost of my daily life is alone. r n r nMy mother feels almost everyday. annoyed / angry with family members one after another. My mother is very perfectionist, so even small mistakes get angry. R n r n For all this time I feel normal, and try to minimize mistakes so as not to be scolded every day. R n r nEvery day before dawn I usually just heard my mother grumble to herself while sweeping the floor of the house. I did not dare to go out of the room and help her because my mother was nagging about me. R n r nThe essence of each of her nagging was that I had cost her education, I was not diligent u0026amp; Regret for having a child like me. r n r nUsually I am sad and in the afternoon I have forgotten and lost my sadness. r n r nHowever, since a week ago … my sadness has not disappeared. r nEven because I really felt I couldn’t be at home, I went to stay at a friend’s house for 1 day and 1 night. When at a friend’s house, I was moved because I was already considered part of his family. However, my friends’ family did not know my problem at all. R n r n u0026amp; when I returned home, I met my mother … r nI was afraid of my mother, r nI was crying because I didn’t want to be in my mother’s house. r n r nI avoided being close to my mother, because I am very sad and feel depressed from every word he said, the intonation of his voice, the look in his eyes …. r n r nMy sleeping patterns become excessive … even during the day. r nI choose not to eat because I do not I wanted to be close to my mother to avoid her words which, even though they might be used to make me feel sick. r n r nEvery scolding / annoyance of every family member, even if it wasn’t on me, I felt pressure … and started to feel really right useless. r n r nThis has happened several times in previous months … but the duration is not as long as now. r n r nSorry, my explanation is too long. r nI want a more conclusions accurate …. am I under stress ?? r nThank you very much 🙂

Tend to feel sad, hopeless, blame yourself, feel worthless. It would be nice if at this time you checked yourself into a general practitioner, so that a consultation can be done, if necessary, the doctor will refer you to a psychologist or psychiatrist.
Besides that, keep living a healthy lifestyle, always trying to think positively, being active in organizations (at school or at home), dividing time well between learning and having fun (relaxation) such as channeling hobbies.
