Mental health struggles can feel exhausting and all-encompassing. Mental health challenges can make you feel isolated and alone - as though you are the only person who could ever understand what you’re experiencing.
While it is common to experience stress in everyday life, it can become overwhelming when emotional feelings inhibit your ability to function normally. If you are struggling to understand these feelings, you might be suffering from a mental health disorder.
Do I have a mental health disorder?
Sometimes it can be difficult to understand when a line is crossed from normal emotional experiences to mental health challenges. You may feel that you are losing control, or that you have increased desires to isolate yourself. One of the key warning signs is also that your physical habits and health may change. You may feel excessively tired, or you may lose/gain weight quickly.
You may feel some of the following symptoms if you are struggling with a mental health disorder:
Depression: Reduced or increased appetite, excessive sleepiness or inability to fall asleep, feeling fatigued or restless, excessive crying, social isolation, lack of concentration, thoughts of suicide.
Anxiety: Increased heart rate, rapid breathing or hyperventilation, shaking, feelings of panic, intense nervousness or stress.
PTSD/Trauma: Agitation, irritability, hostility towards friends or loved ones, flashbacks, extreme fear or anxiety, inability to sleep, intense nightmares, emotional detachment.
Bipolar Disorder: Mood swings, extremely elevated mood, feelings of guilt or hopelessness, increased risk-taking, agitation, depression, excessive sleepiness or inability to fall asleep, frenzied speaking.
Stress: Low energy, digestive problems, aching muscles, inability to fall asleep, racing thoughts, low energy, frequent colds.
Grief: Denial of loss, anger and frustration, depression, excessive sleepiness, lack of energy.
