The Effects Of Bullying And How To Deal With It?
Good eveningrnI am a 25 year old woman. When I was in high school, I was the victim of bullying, it made me traumatized and scared when I met people who reminded me of past events. But when I graduated from high school and moved to Central Java for college, my life gradually returned to normal, but after college I returned to my hometown, the trauma and fear came back again. And I feel this is even worse after last year my idol (who helped me survive during high school) died, keeping me down for more than a few months. Sometimes I can also suddenly feel very happy for no reason for a few days and come back stressed and down for weeks and in my mind, I feel like everyone is rejecting my presence, I get angry easily and cry when my mood is down even though I wasn’t like this before . Starting from January yesterday I had trouble sleeping (insomnia) and even though I only slept 1-2 hours but I didn’t feel tired at all, and there were times when I was down I could sleep more than 12 hours but I still felt tired and tired. My weight has also dropped drastically below the standard BMI (from BB 50Kg to 41Kg with my height 157cm), even my menstrual cycle is disrupted, sometimes every 3-5 months I just have my period. According to the midwife, she said the stress factor and hormones. I rarely exercise because of the density of activities. And 2 weeks ago, suddenly I felt a tremendous fear, my hands and body suddenly trembled, my body was suddenly cold and my fingers were numb, my legs were weak, my vision was blurry it felt like I was going to faint, my heart was beating very fast but it didn’t hurt it’s just that the pulse is very, very fast, my breath is like someone who has run a marathon, even though I’m sitting on a chair. It took less than 10 minutes. Even though my ECG and MCU results are also good. Things like this until now, I still keep it to myself and I don’t tell the people closest to me, because I don’t want to be thought of as weird and looking for attention. What I want to ask me is why? What do I need to do so that I can live as usual.
