Prolonged Sadness, Excessive Crying Without Apparent Reason Accompanied By Thoughts Of Suicide?
Afternoon, I’m atika a 27-year-old mother. For this month I often feel sad, excessive crying almost every day and for a long time. Sometimes just because I was ignored or because of other small things like I was snapped or hear my rude words directly crying. And several times during that time, trying to commit suicide, by using a few piles of drugs but failing the husband. Why me, is depression or problem in controlling my emotions ???? I hope I can answer and give the best solution, thanks
Good evening Atika, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. We understand your feelings. Prolonged sad conditions, excessive crying for no apparent reason, until there are thoughts of suicide and have lasted more than two weeks, it is a sign of depression, and you may indeed experience it. But before diagnosing depression, it also needs to be seen whether during these months these feelings have never improved at all, and the extent to which these feelings have limited your daily life. If it is continuous and limiting activities, chances are that you are indeed depressed.
But what is important for you now is not determining whether you are depressed or not, because that is not your job. In addition, the determination itself is also not possible without direct examination. What is important for you now is to determine whether you really feel disturbed by these feelings or not, and if so, then you should immediately consult a psychologist or psychiatrist.
Many people mistakenly assume that it must be certain first that he has a disease or mental disorder, then consult himself to a psychologist or psychiatrist. Though not the case. Moments where you already feel uncomfortable with your feelings and yourself, that's when you need and have the right to seek help. No need to be embarrassed or reluctant, because regardless of whether you have a mental illness or not, with just those feelings, you need help.
Due to conditions like yours, if forced to do so they are not examined directly by a professional, you will only receive general advice, which may not be right for your life. With a direct check, you can find out the origin of the problem. When and how this all started, and what was the best treatment, is it enough to just supportive psychotherapy, or need other therapies and medicines.
Meanwhile, whatever your problems and feelings, suicide is not the answer. Ending yourself does feel like a short and easy choice, but believe me there will always be a better choice than that. Immediately consult your problem, and try to concern yourself with positive things. So, hopefully answering your question.
