One minute everything is going hanky dory, next thing I’m bursting into tears.
These past few weeks have been overwhelming, apart from dealing with day to day events and having to balance life in general, it feels like there’s no end to these battered thoughts and experiences. Well isn’t this just the perfect time to self-loath?
If my story sounds like your story, then let me be the one to tell you, that you haven’t lost it honey and you’re not going crazy, it’s just your brain signalling warning signs of a nervous breakdown.
Do you ever feel overwhelmed? constantly worried? have unexplainable mood swings? or you find yourself simply wanting to shut down? Don’t worry, you’re not alone. These emotions are very normal, and shouldn’t be taken lightly either. In fact, mental health should be taken seriously and gladly our society is identifying this as a common problem.
Here are five symptoms you need to watch out for:
Individuals who suffer from insomnia find it difficult to fall asleep, stay asleep, or both.
Hallucinations are sensations that appear real but are created by your mind. They can affect all five of your senses.
3. Extreme mood swings or unexplained outbursts
You may have a medical condition if you switch from extremely happy to extremely depressed on a regular basis.
4. Panic Attacks
An intense episode of sudden fear that occurs when there’s no apparent threat or danger.
A thought process that causes you to have an irrational suspicion or mistrust of others. People with paranoia may feel like they’re being persecuted or that someone is out to get them.
If you’re experiencing any of these signs and symptoms it might be a good idea to talk to someone. It could be a psychologist, a friend, a family member or could consider joining a support group.
