What Personality Disorders, And How Can You Treat Them?
Excuse me. My audya, 17 years old. I want to ask if I have a personality disorder. Starting from 2 or 3 years ago, my mood was easy to change, often angry emotions were unclear, I felt excessive worry and fear. Well, maybe because of family conflicts, I got rich too. I find it useless u0026amp; hollow. I have thought about committing suicide but I’m afraid too, I often do myself using a cutter until I bleed just so I feel that I’m still alive. But when it came to a point things started to change. I wanted to hurt myself, so I changed to want to hurt people who bothered me. And somehow seeing that gore thing is soothing. Sometimes I don’t understand how I feel. Right now, sometimes still emotional. Actually why am I?
Hi Audya, thank you for the question for HealthReplies.com
Psychiatric disorders come in various types. Personality disorders are one of them, examples of other disorders are mood disorders (such as depression, bipolar), psychotic disorders (such as schizophrenia, schizotypal), somatoform disorders, behavior disorders, and many other types of psychiatric disorders. A person is said to have a psychiatric disorder when the psychiatric symptoms they experience cause significant disruption in their daily life functions (the person becomes unable to work / study, cannot socialize well, and cannot even take care of himself properly).
In diagnosing a psychiatric disorder, one must first rule out the possible physical causes and drugs. Some examples of physical disorders that can cause psychiatric symptoms include post-stroke or post-head injury personality changes, brain tumors, urea buildup in people with kidney failure, autoimmune diseases such as lupus, and so on. Drug use or excessive alcohol use can also cause psychiatric symptoms. Sometimes the use of medical drugs for certain conditions can also cause psychiatric symptoms.
In your case, it should be analyzed first, is there any particular thing (certain physical illness, drug use, or certain emotional trauma) that happened 3 years ago that caused you to experience the symptoms you are currently feeling? If you do experience significant disruptions in your daily life, you should check with a psychiatrist for further evaluation and given appropriate treatment for your condition.
The symptoms you have listed do not yet lead to a specific psychiatric disorder. To be able to diagnose this psychiatric disorder, the symptoms experienced must meet the existing diagnostic criteria, so a more complete psychiatric interview must be carried out to find out.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
