Many people close to me struggle daily with mental disorders. That is why I decided to share a little about some mental disorders.
How it is?
People who face mental disorders may experience discouragement, lack of sleep or hunger, tiredness, lack of interest, fatigue, excessive sadness, and a desire to die. More than 50% of the population has or had some form of mental disorder. Today we live in constant stress. We are worried, stressed, or nervous for almost 60% of our day. Have a sickness does not mean that a person is evil, useless, or crazy. It means that this person has a problem and needs help and, they also need to be welcomed and receive all the support and love from those who are close. Unlike a physical illness, we cannot see an emotional sickness. But that doesn't mean that person isn't in pain. That's why support and respect are significant.
Depression can be described as excess from the past, meaning that what causes depression is traumatic events from the past that directly affect a person's daily life. In the past, having depression meant having a deep feeling of sadness and emptiness. Today, having depression means not feeling anything, not feeling joy or sadness, pain or love, loneliness, or anything like that.t. The Most advised is that people with depression seek help from a psychologist, as he will be able to guide and help this person in the best way possible. Another thing that can also help fight depression is getting a good night's sleep so that the brain gets enough rest and produces the hormones needed to control stress. Keeping a healthy diet also helps. A few years ago, research showed that some foods like bananas help reduce depression. Bananas contain an amino acid called tryptophan and, it helps in the production of serotonin which is the hormone of happiness. Sometimes small changes can help a person with depression feel better.
The opposite of depression, anxiety is the excess of the future. A person with anxiety worries too much about the future, and this is thoroughly understandable. Today We live daily in an unstable world full of uncertainties and insecurities anxiety. But in some cases, anxiety is not just about a moment. It turns into something constant, better known as a generalized anxiety disorder. A person with anxiety is constantly worried, nervous, stressed, and always on the alert. Anxiety can often cause shortness of breath and loss of sleep as well, and again, the best person who can help is a skilled health care provider. But just like depressed people, sleeping well, eating healthy, and exercising can also help. Another thing that can help in writing, reading, having a good friend to talk to, and, as a wise man said a long time ago, concentrating on one day at a time.
The panic syndrome is already related to fear, the feeling of sudden extreme fear. A panic syndrome is often confused with anxiety but is two different disorders. Panic syndrome happens suddenly. The central part of our brain is responsible for producing adrenaline. When we're in danger, the brain sends out a warning signal and releases adrenaline that will help us react. In a panic attack, the brain emits the warning alarm, but there is no real danger and, this causes a feeling of discomfort and extreme fear. It is common for the person to be breathing fast, sweating a lot, scared, shivering, and, with chills, crying spells are also common in some cases, fear of dying or losing control, and vomiting or fainting during the peak of the crisis. Again, the help of a health care professional is needed, but exercise can also help deal with panic. Like depression and anxiety, what causes panic syndrome are traumatic or stressful situations past or present.
Mental disorders and suicide:
It is common to hear from people with disorders that they would like to die, and some unluckily take their own lives. Understand: This person doesn't want to die. He wants that pain and suffering to end. They might feel guilty seeing how their relatives and friends are affected by theirs. And so she wants it all to end. No, suicide is not the solution, but neither is it an easy time for that person. So, be aware, and that person says anything that indicates that they want to give up their life, in a subtle way, listen and help them. Say positive things and say how much you appreciate her. Despite being very sad, try to help this person because they need your love and help.
How to help?
People who face one of these disorders or others will need help from those close to them. First, they need to deal with negative thoughts, and just saying that these thoughts are a lie won't help much. So always remind this person of their qualities and help them to see what is real. People with mental disorders are not garbage, but they feel that way and, that's why they need help to see that this isn't real. Try to encourage this person to do exercises and activities they enjoy. That could be painting, drawing, writing, and the like. Have a playlist with songs that liven up and help reduce stress levels. These are cares that can be taken daily and can help.
