The Characteristics Of Mental Symptoms?
My doctor is a girl who is 20 years old, for the past 2 days I experienced a feeling of chaos. for example, I often feel depressed, sad, or stressed at a high level continuously, which results in being lazy to move, having emotions or feelings that can be easily changed, restlessness and the heart is always uneasy. this may be because I cannot accept the fact that my partner has ever walked with another woman and betrayed me, feelings of fear and uneasiness always come to mind in my mind, negative thoughts about what my partner is doing always appear in my mind. How do I deal with what I’m feeling right now, Doctor?
Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. We understand your feelings. The problem of mental disorders is a complicated problem, because of its closeness to everyday life. For example in other diseases, when a person experiences physical symptoms such as coughing, vomiting, nasal congestion or runny nose, or at least feeling pain or feeling unwell in his body, chances are there are physical abnormalities in him. Another case with mental disorders.
Symptoms of mental disorders such as sadness, changing feelings, lazy activity, insomnia, difficulty focusing and so forth, are not always a sign that the person is indeed experiencing a mental disorder. These symptoms must be at a certain level of severity, and have disrupted life, social activities or disturbed other people to some degree, and meet certain criteria, can only be called mental disorders. For example for depression, the person must feel overwhelming feelings of sadness, which sometimes has no cause, which makes him weak, lazy to indulge, lazy caring for himself, lazy to talk, lazy to eat, take a shower, do not want to do things that he has been happy to do, and this must last for a minimum of 2 consecutive weeks.
So what we want to say, if you really feel that there is something uncomfortable in your feelings or thoughts, there is no need to hesitate to determine whether this is abnormal or not, just consult a psychologist or psychiatrist. Let them determine whether this is a failure or not. If it turns out not to be an abnormality, your psychologist or psychiatrist will not reject or ignore you, your story will still be heard, you will still be given advice in dealing with these negative feelings, and you can still come back if you feel the need. This is so important because for physical ailments, direct examination is mandatory, especially mental illness that is very subjective.
In the meantime, don't blame yourself if you feel sad about something that's really sad for you. Don't listen if someone is looking down on your sadness. A person's sadness standards vary. It could be that other people consider sadness, is normal for you. Enjoy your time, but believe that you will not be stopped by your sadness. Believe that everything you experience, both good and bad, will make you a better person, and believe that there is wisdom in everything. So, hopefully answering your question.
