How do you know you have a mental disorder

From what I saw from different social media platforms like Youtube, which I mostly consume. It became trendy to talk about different types of mental disorders. The trend is to start recording yourself talking about your eating disorder and the stages of the disorder, like your body transformation from a normal looking person to a very skinny to the skeleton body shape to the difficult recovery process.

I discovered that with that type of content provided with photos or videos is what people want to see. You have to admit that watching it is kind of satisfying if not just entertaining. It is so bad that this kind of misery attracts us.

Because this is the era of the popularity of mental disorders. Now people finally can be honest and admit when there is something wrong with their mental health, because it is so common between many people nowadays. One can’t help but to wonder if he or she has a mental disorder hidden somewhere maybe in the complicated brain.

I myself never thought I have any mental disorder since I was a little. I knew I was a bit different than others, but I never doubted my sanity. Until after many years I got diagnosed with a severe type of depression, and now I’m heavily medicated.

I saw many people asking questions online if something that they feel, or something that is happening with them could mean that they have a mental disorder, for example many people wonder if they have bipolar, because of the mood swings that they go through.

Take my advice, never diagnose yourself, and never let someone who is not a professional doctor diagnose you. I say this because I want you to avoid getting delusional. Plus, it is not funny to be suffering from a mental disorder. It is serious and it needs to be handled with wisdom, love, and care. 

So how do you know if you have a mental disorder? Well, first you need to know it takes time for the professional doctor to diagnose you with the exact problems you have. Doctors can’t find out what’s wrong with you until there are clear signs of a serious mental disorder. It is so bad that you have to be going through a difficult episode of some sort, then it becomes easy for doctors to point out the problem you have.

Never hesitate if you suspect anything about yourself, just see a doctor and stop searching online, because a lot of what you read there is posted by people who don’t know nor care if you get misinformed. If you know that there is something serious happening to you, that means that you have to get serious too, and go to the doctor’s office. Don’t take an online quiz, because this is not a game.
