Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.

You are reporting symptoms like sleep disturbance, irritability, mood swings, anxiety and maladaptive psychological habit/defense mechanism like self harm, pushing people away. These symptoms may be caused due to several different conditions like mood disorder, personality issues, trauma, etc.

Have you had any medical/psychological input before? It will help to see your doctor and get referred to a psychiatrist/mental health team for a comprehensive assessment and treatment plan. You may benefit by psychological therapy to address your underlying issues. Sometimes medication to lift your mood/stabilise your mood may be needed as well. This can be decided by your doctor only after a comprehensive assessment

Meanwhile you have to follow some self-help interventions which an help with your symptoms:

  • Regular exercise for 20-30 mins daily will help with your mood. Even brisk walking will help
  • Avoid any alcoholic drinks as it will worsen your mood
  • Stay connected with your trusted family & friends who can understand and support you

Take care
