Home Forum Topics Mental Health How do I know if it’s just stress or something more?

      I’ve been dealing with waves of anxiety and really low emotional moods (verging on depressed but I don’t want to self diagnose), and I’m trying to sort out if it’s just the current state of the world/external stressors that are causing these mood fluctuations, or if it’s something more. Kind of feel like it might be time to start seeing a counselor or a therapist, but still not sure if I’m fully ready to talk to someone else. Any recommendations would be so appreciated!

          Hi Evie,

          I am sorry to hear about your problem. These health conditions are the worst for those patients who can not deal with stress symptoms. If you want to know if it’s just stress or something else then you need to focus on your emotional symptoms of anxiety and these are becoming easily agitated, frustrated, moody, and feeling overwhelmed as if you are losing control and want to take control of this. If you are still experiencing from something, I suggest that it’s time to consult a doctor and need to talk about your mental condition. I also had the same problems but through the help of telehealth Ongo Care, I am well and overcome this problem.

            Hey Evie,

            I can agree. My therapist and hairdresser say that this is the norm they are seeing across all boards right now. My therapist said that if you can do one thing to help with these swings is to allow them to happen and be real with them.

            I love my therapist. She helps so much. I went to about three before figuring mine out. It might take some time but it’s worth it. Happy to chat more about it
