It is not the the bruises on the body that hurt. It is the wounds of the heart and the scars on the mind.”― Aisha Mirza
Mind is the master, master of evil and of love. Mind is our greatest weapon of all our greatest enemy. So we need to be aware what it might lead to.
Why do need mental health awareness?
Mental health is one of the most important issues which we lack information on. It can be roughly estimated that one in every ten has a certain kind of mental illness.
But very few pay attention to it and many are unknown of what’s happening inside their head. It piles up until it bursts and results in worst forms like suicide.
So it is very important that we learn and accept what our mind is going through.
What are the reasons?
At some point of time in our lives each one has suffered through a trauma, a terrible tragic incident which leaves an imprint on our brain. This imprint slowly becomes severe and affects us.
It can be losing someone so close to you, losing a job or a break up, can be harsh incident happened in your past mostly in adolescence or childhood. It can also be a physical or verbal assault.
But if you are not aware of mental disease at such times this road may lead to a disastrous destination which may lead to suicide.
What are the symptoms?
Mental health is a vast subject. But there are some aspects which seem quiet common in many of us that are depression and anxiety disorders.
The common symptoms which can be observed and assessed by us are given below
- Feeling nervous, restless or tense
- Having a sense of impending danger, panic or doom
- Having an increased heart rate
- Breathing rapidly (hyperventilation)
- Feeling weak or tired
- Trouble concentrating or thinking about anything other than the present worry
- Having trouble sleeping
- Experiencing gastrointestinal (GI) problems
- Having difficulty controlling worry
- Having the urge to avoid things that trigger anxiety
What can be done?
So when start feeling some of symptoms the very first thing you need to do is to talk to someone who is enough close to you and understands you. In many cases counselling is considered enough.
The next step you need to do is consult a psychiatrist because he is the only person that can hack into brain and stabilize it. Metaphorically he is the ANTIVIRUS TO YOUR INFECTED BRAIN.
These days it is easy to consult psychiatrist and have a live session with them. At any point you should not feel left out because everybody around you is a patient it’s just that you are coming forward for cures.
I hope you learnt something from the above article.
