What Would Be Written In Your Psychiatrist’s File About You?

 

 

There are many people who don’t know how to deal with mental issues and it is really hard for them to get around it. While I am not a psychiatrist nor a psychologist and hence I cannot give you recommendations regarding your particular issue. You should seek professional help if you really feel you are suffering from mental health problems.

While I have not suffered from serious mental health problems but I had suffered from depression. It was not a very severe one but whatever it was I had not felt such emptiness in my entire life. I used to have no energy during the entire day. I used to sleep for 16-18 hours and I had lost my appetite. There were many more problems than I had faced during the time. The root problem that I had found out was that I felt unworthy of myself. It happened due to a particular reason that I don’t want to share right now. But that incident left me completely broken. It went on for months and I was constantly feeling low. In our country, we don’t have much awareness of mental health and my family was unable to understand what I was going through. Even I didn’t understand for months that I was suffering from depression.

Whatever I had experienced I could tell you from that it is a very dark place to be in. Once you drop in this dark hole there are almost no positive thoughts left in your mind. You struggle to come back to your natural self. You might act at times to be normal but you know it from inside that you are just acting. It is a very serious medical condition and it requires the help of a professional. I hope that you take something out of my experience.

I have seen that people don’t really treat depression as a real disease. The point is that if the other person had not suffered it, will have a very hard time understanding your situation. They might feel that you are just sad and you would get over it. But the fact is that you can only get over it by finding and addressing the root cause of it or taking a professional’s help.

“i think the idea of a ‘mental health day’ is something completely invented by people who have no clue what it’s like to have bad mental health. the idea that your mind can be aired out in twenty-four hours is kind of like saying heart disease can be cured if you eat the right breakfast cereal. mental health days only exist for people who have the luxury of saying ‘i don’t want to deal with things today’ and then can take the whole day off, while the rest of us are stuck fighting the fights we always fight, with no one really caring one way or another, unless we choose to bring a gun to school or ruin the morning announcements with a suicide.”

“When you come out of the grips of a depression there is an incredible relief, but not one you feel allowed to celebrate. Instead, the feeling of victory is replaced with anxiety that it will happen again, and with shame and vulnerability when you see how your illness affected your family, your work, everything left untouched while you struggled to survive. We come back to life thinner, paler, weaker … but as survivors. Survivors who don’t get pats on the back from coworkers who congratulate them on making it. Survivors who wake to more work than before because their friends and family are exhausted from helping them fight a battle they may not even understand. I hope to one day see a sea of people all wearing silver ribbons as a sign that they understand the secret battle, and as a celebration of the victories made each day as we individually pull ourselves up out of our foxholes to see our scars heal, and to remember what the sun looks like.”

“Bipolar robs you of that which is you. It can take from you the very core of your being and replace it with something that is completely opposite of who and what you truly are. Because my bipolar went untreated for so long, I spent many years looking in the mirror and seeing a person I did not recognize or understand. Not only did bipolar rob me of my sanity, but it robbed me of my ability to see beyond the space it dictated me to look. I no longer could tell reality from fantasy, and I walked in a world no longer my own.”
― Alyssa Reyans, Letters from a Bipolar Mother

“Feelings don’t try to kill you, even the painful ones. Anxiety is a feeling grown too large. A feeling grown aggressive and dangerous. You’re responsible for its consequences, you’re responsible for treating it. But…you’re not responsible for causing it. You’re not morally at fault for it. No more than you would be for a tumor.”
