23 Feb 2023

According to WHO , nearly 1 billion people in the world suffer from various degrees of mental health problems . Every year, 3 million people die from alcoholism due to depression. On average, 1 person dies by suicide every 40 seconds.

Among these patients, only a few people can get timely psychological intervention, especially in low- and middle-income countries, suffering from mental illness, neurological and drug abuse problems gradually increased, and more than 75% did not receive any treatment.

Depression, how many people are ignored?

In today's society, stress can be seen everywhere, especially the impact of the epidemic.

However, stress itself is not a mental health problem. It is often the beginning of many problems. Long-term psychological pressure has become the enemy of our mental health. If we cannot intervene in time, it will easily lead to mental illnesses such as depression.

As for depression, many people do not realize that they have contracted the disease.

These patients are still talking and laughing in the crowd, but they feel extremely lonely and depressed when they are alone.

For depression, people have to learn to self-test, to be early detection and early treatment

Early depression has the following manifestations:

1. Emotional depression and psychological loss

When you encounter annoying things, it will affect your emotions and you can't control it.

In addition to depression and upset, I often feel lonely and depressed, and I have a negative attitude toward problems, and I feel depressed and unhappy and no one understands .

2. Lost appetite or overeating

Bad emotions can harm all aspects of the body. The most common one is the loss of appetite and the inability to eat any food.

Or they may "turn grief into appetite" and suddenly start overeating and gradually gain weight. This disease can be seen in many people, and it is also one of the manifestations of depression.

3. Insomnia

Even lying in bed can't fall asleep. The brain is like playing a movie. It remembers many things. I feel sleepy but cannot fall asleep. I finally fall asleep and often wake up in the middle of the night.

If the human body cannot get enough sleep, it will cause great damage to the body. Depression can cause insomnia, and insomnia can aggravate depression, thus entering a vicious circle.

4.Often feel tired and body pain

Depressed patients not only can't lift their energy, but also often feel exhausted physically, and feel physically exhausted without the energy to work.

If it goes on for a long time, the body's immunity and resistance will be reduced, and it will be more likely to be infected with germs and make the body sick.

There are also some patients who feel pain on their bodies, such as headaches, backaches .

5. Slow response and inability to concentrate

Patients with depression are often in a daze, do not pay attention to or care about people or things around them, have very poor concentration, and lose their minds if they do not pay attention. This state will affect life and work.

6.Character is lonely

After suffering from depression, you will feel incompatible with the crowd, hate outdoor activities, or even appear in crowded places, feel anxious, and even want to escape from the crowd.

The world is not as perfect as you think, but we still have the ability to cure it.

Although the process is difficult, remember: you are not alone in the fight! Depression is not ashamed, we have the ability to cure it together.
