Never Let it Go to your Head

I suffer from mental health issues. So every Monday I come here to rant about whatever thing I am depressed about.

Feel free to read the previous episode here

The fact that so few people take mental health issues seriously is frustrating. How often have we heard it referred to as “the rich man’s disease”? One in eight people, according to the World Health Organization, have mental health issues. But just 25% of the population receives treatment. I’ve always thought that everyone on earth experiences some sort of mental health issue. People only assume the consequences if they either have mild symptoms or are unaware of the many sorts, whichever is more likely. I, therefore, feel compelled to inform everyone of the types of these problems and their symptoms in this article.

Depression.

Probably the most prevalent type of mental health problem is this one. If you just lose interest in things, you will know then that you may be depressed.  Over time, you may find it difficult to focus at work or in class. It is important to keep in mind that you can lose interest can in actions that you have taken in the past and enjoyed. It’s possible that you won’t even have the want to meet up with pals because of the downward spiral in your social confidence.  The risky aspect of depression is that it lowers your self-esteem, which may lead you to begin doubting your existence. It is safe to seek professional advice at this time because the next stage entails unhealthy suicide ideas.

Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder.

Have you ever been told about a horrible event? Or perhaps you simply saw something frightful? Do you have any traumatic thoughts about these events? You are most likely suffering from PTSD if the ideas affect you in any manner. Even less traumatic incidents might sometimes nevertheless have an impact on a person if their brain interprets them as such. When you have PTSD, you frequently have thoughts and flashbacks about these specific incidents. These thoughts occasionally appear as nightmares. Sounds and other tiny things can start these experiences in the brain. Most PTSD patients have likely either served in the military or been engaged in accidents.

Anxiety Disorders.

Anxiety is a typical emotion for anyone. In reality, a person experiences anxiety over some event every single week. But what occurs when the anxiety becomes out of control? When that happens, we get anxiety disorders. This is the time when you start to feel anxious and restless about the world around you. In other cases, it might not even be something that is known—the occurrences might be in the long future. The inability to perform any meaningful job is one way that anxiety disorders impede mental function. Uncontrollable trembling and perspiration are possible symptoms. Experts have shown that engaging in some activities, such as exercise, can aid in the control of anxiety.

Bipolar Disorder.

People with this type of mental illness always display unpredictable symptoms, which makes it impossible to diagnose them. They sometimes simply live happy lives, going about their daily business as usual. However, the low points start to appear with depression-like traits. They feel a decline in mood and vitality, as well as the beginnings of low self-worth. Consult a doctor as soon as possible because the issues could last a lifetime.

What Next..

It is therefore quite unfair to condemn anyone who suffers from mental health disorders because they did not choose to do so. Consider those who have recently left the military. The horrors seen in the military go above and beyond what we see in our regular daily lives. Nobody chooses to see their friends murdered in daylight. It’s not a sacrifice that everyone can make to leave their family and move in with animals.

If you see someone exhibiting any of the aforementioned signs, Put a warm hand on their shoulders and offer support.

Those who believe they may be impacted by the aforementioned illnesses should see a specialist as soon as possible. I’ll shortly provide a ranking of Kenya’s top organizations for mental health.
