The Cause Is Always Depression And Negative Thinking?
Hello doctor, I want to ask. Why do I always feel depressed every day, uneasy, excessive anxiety, panic, and the worst thing is I don’t know how to interact socially, how to talk to people I don’t know, don’t want to look me in the eye, sweat every time I talk to new people , so bad I only have 1-2 people in class and strangely enough when I have a lot of friends I always feel no friends and feel alone all the time even though a lot of people who ask to talk to me and every time I come home from school I always feel no friends, depression, and negative thinking. And I also laugh almost every day and laugh loudly and loose but there is no funny and I feel dissatisfied and not happy every time I laugh and I am still 16 years old, in fact there are still many more just afraid to be too long. So much from me, thanks
Hello Garen, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Depression is not a feeling, but a condition that is caused by a disturbance in a person's psychological side, so it is not generally used to describe a person's feelings. In addition, this condition can only be stated only by a doctor on the basis of an examination of a person's psychological condition and whether complaints found in that person meet the diagnostic criteria for depression or not.
The complaint that you feel right now, can indeed be a symptom of a depressive disorder, but can also be caused by other conditions such as:
Avoidance personality disorder
Schizoid personality disorder
To determine whether you experience a psychological disorder or not, you should consult further with a psychiatric specialist (psychiatrist) to do an examination of your psychological status. If indeed any disorder is found, your doctor will help determine how the therapy you should go through to help overcome the disorder that you experience.
In the meantime, there are no medicines that are recommended for you to take. Try to change your view little by little about things, try to see every positive side of everything you experience. It is also advisable to try to talk to other people you don't know even though it is quite difficult.
I hope this helps.
