The Mind Drifts, It’s Hard To Concentrate And Is Like A Daze?
I am a 24 year old girl. I have symptoms that I find it hard to explain myself. At the beginning of experiencing this symptom, I was still in college around semester 4 when I was just starting to get stressed about campus assignments and the state of the lecture. What I experience are symptoms such as suddenly my mind is floating, empty, it’s hard to concentrate, I can’t talk to it, so I just shut up like that, like a dazed person. The feeling often comes suddenly but the duration is only about 1 minute. At that time I was confused why I was experiencing that and the feeling was also difficult to describe in words. I didn’t tell anyone because people would be confused and instead I was said to be unclear. I often experience this symptom and I wonder if this is a symptom of a disease or a symptom of stress. Until now, I’ve been working and I often experience this symptom, but not as often as in college. I want to get a logical explanation of what I feel this. Does everyone feel these symptoms or only those who are stressed feel it. I asked questions and how to solve it. Hopefully the doctor will have an explanation regarding the symptoms that I am experiencing. Thank you and ask for a reply because I dare not ask a doctor in the real world afraid of being thought strange.
Hello. Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Everyone has experienced stress at least once in his life. Stress can hit a person due to a lot of pressure from outside or from within himself in certain circumstances such as workload, economic factors, job loss, when facing exams, tasks that are being chased by deadlines, etc. In certain situations like the one above, stress is normal, it can even be positive, because someone can focus more on problems, so that it can improve performance. On the other hand, stress that occurs continuously and is not managed properly, it is not uncommon for someone to suffer from depression which can affect mental health, physical and social relationships. As explained above, stress can encourage a person to be more focused, excited and improve their performance to face challenges or pressures. Conversely, someone who cannot manage stress will become discouraged because stress can be dealt with in different ways for each person. Therefore stress must be managed properly. In addition, the level of stress felt by each person can also be different. Stress can affect aspects of a person's life in terms of emotions, thinking power, behavior, and physical health.
