Often Missed Signs of a Mental Health Issue

by Psych Times Staff

Even though mental illness is relatively very common in most societies, not many people know how to effectively identify the various conditions that could be present. The early warning signs are often missed and sometimes even doctors overlook them. This can lead to you not getting the support you need. If you want to make sure that mental health is your priority then this is the guide for you.

Constant Fatigue

Living with a mental illness is exhausting. If you have OCD and it is not diagnosed then you may feel as though you experience intrusive or even obsessive thoughts all the time and this can be draining. If you feel the need to act on your thoughts when they happen then this can take up a lot of your energy as well. You then have the task of trying to keep up with your schoolwork, responsibilities and more, on top of your symptoms. If you want to help yourself then you need to look at your energy levels. If you are constantly fatigued, there could be a mental health condition at play.

Pain

One very important understanding when it comes to mental health is that the body and the mind are very much connected. If your body is sick then this will affect your mental health. The same concept applies vice-versa, so it is very important that you keep things like this in mind if possible.

Perfectionism

Did you know that there are some mental conditions that can change how you see yourself? They also change how you see others as well as your surroundings. This can also be seen in the way that you see yourself. People who have an eating disorder or even anxiety can easily be driven by the desire to be perfect in every aspect of their lives.

This could include eating habits, physical appearances and more. At the end of the day, you have to know that nobody out there is perfect. Self-improvement is commendable, but you need balance if you want to truly achieve your potential.  If you believe that you need help with the way you see yourself and your surroundings because of a bad experience then why not explore treatments for PTSD?

No Emotion

Lack of emotion is a very common symptom of mental illness that isn’t often talked about. When people talk about mental illness, it’s very common to talk about how people feel excitable, upset or even anxious. That being said, sometimes not being able to show any emotion at all is another sign. You have to make sure that you take the right steps when it comes to getting things back on track if you feel this way, or you may not be able to move forward.
