Self-harm Is Accompanied By A Sense Of Worthlessness And Frequent Crying?
Hello doctor, I am a high school student. My friends consider me a strange person. Because of that, I often cry and feel sad for a long time. I lose my interest in doing something. I feel that my presence is not important to many people. with myself and finally I often hurt myself by scratching myself. I also became afraid to communicate with people directly Is my condition reasonable considering my age is still unstable and not depressed?
Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
The existence of complaints of self injury or self-injury, feeling useless, thinking dead, feeling unimportant if you are there or not, then these things may have led to depression. This may be a long time you have experienced and felt, but you have not been able to accept this condition as it is or maybe you have not been able to adjust to the environment around you (school), which may be your environment or your friends demand more from you. Therefore, you should step back a little to look at the situation around you, recognize your friends, observe each of their nature and inspect what you have done. In general, if a person is silent, calm and does not seek attention in an environment but remains friends in a polite manner, then this individual usually does not experience harassment to cause heartache for that individual. So sometimes the desire to stand out, self-validation, the desire to be known, the desire to make lots of friends by being funny, or maybe to behave or behave in a certain manner can trigger harassment for the individual. So if there is one or several that triggered harassment then you should control it and avoid doing it.
However, if you do not do all that and are not in your habits or thoughts, then in general, there are no obstacles from your side, but maybe because your friends who have habits or attitudes like that that might interfere with you and abuse .
Therefore, you should be friends naturally, good friends, and be reasonable with other friends who may often abuse. Thus, you can protect yourself from all the risks of harassment that may arise.
Some efforts you can do to help control a sad mood and feel useless, such as:
1. avoid conflict
2. avoid stress
3. avoid daydreaming
4. avoid being alone or alone, you should gather with your close friends or with family when at home
5. avoid sleeping late
6. speak well, politely, and meaningfully and related to the lesson. talk that is not serious and joking, you should limit and reduce
7. Be reasonable and not stand out or excessive
8. do organizational activities in school or social activities to provide benefits in your free time
9. start thinking positive and avoid negative thoughts
If you have tried all the efforts in the next few months, and tried to adjust well in your environment, but all of them have not provided improvement, then you should consult with your doctor or psychologist. The doctor will conduct interviews, physical examinations and supporting examinations if needed, so that the results of the examination can be a reference for doctors in providing care and supervision for you. So you can get through all this well.
