My parents started going through a divorce about a year ago, and the process is still going on, but before the divorce, I realized I was emotionless, did not feel like crying, and was excited. Everything feels like a new change, and I can deal with good or bad situations. I am an 18-year-old male diagnosed with seasonal depression, but this is different. Some are trying to convince me that I might have a trauma caused by my childhood, but I do not feel like that is true.
I can understand your concern, and I am sorry about your parents. You may have a mixed anxiety depressive disorder. There is non-pharmacological management for it. So I suggest you to follow a few instructions. Exercise for 30 to 45 minutes daily. If possible, join the gym or swimming classes; it will boost your self-confidence. Do meditation for 20 minutes daily. Just sit in one place in a comfortable position and try to concentrate on your normal breathing, do not stop or force yourself to stop your thoughts. Eat healthy home-cooked foods, and avoid junk foods. Drink enough water. Spend quality time with friends daily. Spend time reading good books, writing journals, painting, drawing, and learning new skills, language, or musical instruments. Get enough sleep daily. Avoid tobacco, alcohol, or any substance abuse.
I hope this has helped you. Thank you.
