Surviving a nervous breakdown can be difficult anywhere. Whether at home, at work, or in any other social setting, outages can be unpredictable and shake up our emotions and thoughts. It’s often a reminder that it’s time to take care of our mental health and incorporate wellness strategies.

Your workplace can be enjoyable, rewarding, challenging, or satisfying. However, it can also cause stress or anxiety, which can lead to depression or other underlying mental health issues.

A mental depression is a mental health crisis caused by an accumulation of very stressful situations. According to research, the percentage of Americans who have felt on the verge of mental breakdown has increased over the past 40 years.

Identifying warning symptoms is crucial before starting treatment. By using the therapies and support offered by these treatment programs, you learn how to manage your mental health issues and improve your quality of life.

Ways to survive a mental breakdown at work

Extremely high levels of stress and additional symptoms that have accumulated over time can lead to a nervous breakdown.

These signs and symptoms can vary from person to person and the underlying problem. However, they usually include physical, behavioral and psychological signs.

Here are six ways to survive a nervous breakdown at work:

1) Identify your triggers

Include coping skills to help you through such circumstances once you identify your triggers. This may involve finding a quiet place where you can rest, take a short walk, stretch, or do breathing exercises. Although we can do it at home, it is also important to incorporate it into our work routine.


2) Keep a balanced diet

A balanced diet can increase energy and keep you from feeling tired and exhausted.

Eat plenty of fruits, vegetables, and foods rich in omega-3 fatty acids, such as salmon, as well as other whole meals. Avoid chemicals that can stress the body, such as alcohol, caffeine and others. Using drugs or alcohol as a coping method can make mental health problems worse or lead to addiction.


3) Take a day off

One day we will talk about how some NGOs that promote health and access to care have employees who are on the verge of depression because of work toxicity.

Many companies offer mental health days as an important bonus to encourage employee well-being and retention as they look for ways to reduce employee stress.

One way to help workers manage work-related stress, minimize burnout, and focus on their emotional, spiritual, and mental well-being is to provide them with a mental health day.

Activities that make you feel better during this time include watching a movie, hanging out with friends, or riding a bike. A mental health day can provide a well-deserved break to stop, reflect, and come back with more vigor and clarity.


4) Live in the present

We often become obsessed with disturbing or depressing memories of the past or spend our energy worrying about the future. In doing so, we find that we are not fully in the present.

Hovering over things you cannot change or control can only add to your misery and worry. These negative ideas can sometimes play a key role in emotional breakdown. Start by being responsible for your thoughts and practice being present in the moment.


5) Take it one step at a time

Living without problems in the modern world is anything but impossible. In addition, sometimes seemingly insignificant events can lead to lingering worries and eventually lead to a nervous breakdown at work or at home. Instead of continually dealing with their impact, try to remove these stressful situations from your life.

Start by identifying a few things that regularly stress you out, like meeting deadlines, and come up with some strategies you can use to reduce that stress. You can, for example, discuss with your supervisor the possibility of reducing deadlines or adding additional members to your project.


6) Ask for help

Mental breakdowns are not uncommon in the workplace. Recognize that you don’t have to suffer in silence and that you are not alone.

Accepting support is imperative, and it can be empowering. Recognize that anxiety, depression, mood swings and panic attacks can be exhausting and trying to manage them on your own can be difficult. You can seek help from friends, family, or a professional to help you recover.


Carry

There is no absolute right way to deal with a mental breakdown. Sometimes the best course of action is to talk with your supervisor about the approach you can both take to create a successful work environment for you.

Plus, it sometimes involves giving yourself permission to cry uncontrollably on your lunch break and returning to work when you’re ready.

Family slammed for ostracizing man with ‘mental breakdown’ https://dystonia-dreams.org/family-slammed-for-ostracizing-man-with-mental-breakdown/ Thu, 10 Nov 2022 22:16:33 +0000 https://dystonia-dreams.org/family-slammed-for-ostracizing-man-with-mental-breakdown/ A woman and her husband have received support online after revealing his family put him on trial for suffering a mental health crisis.

A woman and her husband have received support online after revealing his family put him on trial for suffering a mental health crisis.

The original poster (OP), known as u/Beautiful-Cut3012, posted about the situation to Reddit’s “Am I The A******” forum where it received over 17 400 upvotes and 1,700 comments. The position can be found here.

Support loved ones

Supporting a family member or loved one during a mental health crisis can be anxiety-provoking, especially if the person is not receiving support from others.

Ken Duckworth, MD and Chief Medical Officer of the National Mental Health Alliance, said Newsweek it is important that people put themselves in their loved one’s shoes.

Here, a stock image of a man sitting in a dark room. Commenters have slammed a Redditor’s family for not supporting her husband during a mental health crisis after he suffered a miscarriage.

You can ask them what they need or how you can best help them,” Duckworth said. “It helps to adjust your language with, ‘I’m worried, is there anything I can do to help? ?” and try to listen without judging the situation and not trying to “fix” it.

Duckworth also said family and friends can benefit from a better understanding of their loved one’s mental illness diagnosis.

By having more information, it becomes easier for individuals to offer support and engage with loved ones while ensuring they are listening to their issues.

“Being willing to talk less and listen more is important to make your loved one feel heard and validated without judgment,” Duckworth said.

But, he added, it’s also important to remember that offering this kind of support can sometimes be difficult, especially if the loved one isn’t interested in treatment.

“It’s a difficult situation when a family member lacks awareness and denies that something is wrong. It can be easy to confuse that with deliberate denial,” Duckworth said. “It’s important to know that this could be a symptom of their mental illness, called anosognosia. It might help to understand the situation better by listening to someone who has lost consciousness, has regained it and can talk about it.”

‘AITA?’

In the post titled “AITA for telling my niece that my husband and I are not going to her birthday party because my husband is not welcome?” the PO said she and her husband had been together for 10 years.

She said her husband suffered “horrifying trauma” as a child, particularly from his father. She said that although he is a “wonderful man” who is great with children, he still suffers from his childhood trauma.

“Her parents were married and expecting twins when her mother suffered some sort of hemorrhage and ended up with eclampsia,” the post read. “My husband’s mother and twin sister did not survive. But my husband did after some time in NICU. His father told him it was his fault they died. “

Fortunately, he had a good relationship with his grandparents until their death at the age of 8, which his father also blamed him for.

“He spent the next 10 years hearing day after day that he was the cause. At no time did he have another person to reassure him that was not the case,” reads the message. “When we met, he had just started to heal. He was away from his dad and in therapy.”

“Began to unravel”

In January 2020, the PO went to a pregnancy scan with her husband where they learned she had had a miscarriage. She said as soon as her husband heard it, something “snapped” inside.

“He started to break down. He was in the midst of a mental health crisis,” the post read. “He was doing this funny manic laugh that was also a sob. He ran out of the room and I followed him, worried.”

The OP said his sister is a nurse at the hospital and his mother worked in the gift shop and they both witnessed the incident.

“Both saw it in this worst time,” the post read. “They saw that the medical staff were forced to intervene because he was depressed, hysterical and totally beside himself. He was totally broken and nothing could touch him.”

She said that although it was the scariest moment of her life, it was her husband’s worst moment. Still, she said her family judged her husband for “laughing” during the incident.

The OP’s mother and sister then told the rest of the family about the incident and they also “judged” him, even though they were aware of his mental health history.

“My husband ended up in the care of a psychiatrist who suggested he needed far more help than therapy could provide,” the post read. “Instead of understanding, my family didn’t want him anymore.”

The family said a man who would “laugh at his own wife’s miscarriage” was not someone they wanted with the children. But she told them she wouldn’t rule it out.

family dispute

Recently, the PO was invited to his niece’s 12th birthday party, her first party since the pandemic. But when her niece called and said she wanted her there, she said she couldn’t be there and apologized.

“She was upset and asked why she had never seen us,” the post read. “I told her that my husband was no longer welcome among the other adults in the family. She apparently yelled at her parents and mine.”

Now the OP’s family say they “didn’t have to tell” her niece and are upset by her comment.

Editors’ reactions

Over 1,700 users commented on the post, with many supporting the OP for supporting her husband during such a difficult time.

“I respect you for standing by your husband. It was the right decision. If they don’t both welcome you then neither of you attend,” one user commented. “As for telling your niece the truth, I’m okay with that too. You have nothing to hide. There was nothing inappropriate about telling her that. And it looks like you have kept the explanation short.”

“Sister is a nurse while mom worked in the little gift shop. Both saw. Big breach of privacy if they tell family what happened in hospital. NTA,” another commented. .

“NTA. This is horrible behavior [sic] about your sister and your mother, especially since they both work in a hospital,” another commented.

“No, I don’t think you and your husband should be around people who totally judge him based on one extreme[ly] vulnerable moment in both of your lives,” another commented. “His mental health comes first. I hope you and him are doing better.”

“Sister is a nurse, she should have at least a working understanding of the difference between a delighted laugh and a nervous breakdown, especially since there have been other medical procedures going on,” another user commented.

“They probably told your niece lies or completely ignored the issue,” another commented. “Your family can go kick rocks and I’m so sorry for your loss and your husband’s pain in this horrible situation.”

Another commented: “12 is usually old enough to start hearing uncomfortable truths about your family. And you didn’t say why, but you said your husband was not wanted and you both of you are in overall agreement.”

Newsweek has contacted u/Beautiful-Cut3012 for comment.

Other Viral Posts

In another viral post on Reddit, a man was slammed for shaming his girlfriend’s “work ethic” while she dealt with mental health issues. Commenters also slammed a mother for taking her 6pm children away from her family so she could be with her new husband after their father died.

A woman has received help online for refusing to help her sister care for her dying father.

After suffering a nervous breakdown and being put on “suicide watch”, Hampstead artist and poet John-Paul Flintoff found solace in his art.

the old Sunday time The journalist said a series of traumatic events in 2015 triggered his depression years later, which led to him being hospitalized in psychiatry.

Mr Flintoff said he was starting to feel helpless and described himself as a ‘zombie’ after dealing with two deaths in two months and then two more relatives with major health issues.

He said: “It totally destroyed my faith in ‘am I okay, is the world safe?’ I lost my job, I got into debt, it just got worse and worse.

“It took me about three years to recognize it. At the end of 2017, I wished I wasn’t alive, but I wasn’t going to do anything about it, so it felt like a terrible trap.

“I really thought everyone would be better off without me, so it was a dark place.”

Despite going through a ‘terrible time’ for eight weeks in hospital, the Hampstead resident said he ‘wouldn’t want it’.

From there, he had to rebuild himself. Still in debt and out of work, he focused on small accomplishments like going to the pharmacy, which felt like major milestones.

Prior to his writing career, Mr. Flintoff viewed art as a hobby. But his psychiatrist encourages him to continue drawing, which allows him to express himself on another medium.

Mr Flintoff said: ‘I have come a long way in my recovery drawing instead of writing. So I drew pictures of myself in situations of what I imagined myself doing – to show myself how brutal it could be sometimes.

It depicted “two versions” of himself, one where he could look at his sad handiwork and distance himself from his dark thoughts.

During his recovery process, he was also recommended to walk home and digest what he was thinking. From there he found refuge at Holy Trinity Church in Sloane Square, Chelsea.

Although Mr Flintoff claims he was not brought up religiously, he found it restful to sit in church and enjoy its free shelter.

He said, “I was kind of persecuted by my own self-critical thoughts, so I found it very helpful to recite the prayers over and over again just to silence my brain. So that helped.

He was often impressed by the colorful stained glass windows in the church and his designs began to take inspiration from the church.

The raw emotion of his works began to captivate others as well, to the point that he was asked to do 37 portraits of members of his parish.

At this point, he began to turn his therapeutic tools of walking and art into means of pleasing others. When his quiet times at church were suppressed during the Covid-19 lockdown, he organized online ‘pilgrimages’ across London using Google Street View.

Audiences online could see him clicking blurry faces and number plates to show off the capital’s inner beauty as he traveled virtually from north London to Canterbury. During these “pilgrimages”, he took screenshots and drew biblical scenes on the images of modern Britain.

Unlike his works of art based on trauma from the past, the Street View doodles took on humorous biblical adaptations of modern London – from an invasion of flies in West Hampstead to Abraham about to sacrifice Isaac in front of a cleaner in dry from north London.

Psalms for the City, a book of illustrated poems inspired by the Luttrell Psalter, has just been published by Mr. Flintoff, describing how he found peace in a chaotic city.

Chioma Fakorede is the founder of the Olamma Cares Foundation, an NGO that supports people living with mental health issues. In this interview with ADEWUNMI ADEDAYO, she explains how the foundation raises awareness and supports people living with mental health problems, among others.

You are an advocate for mental health, disability inclusion and a yoga instructor, why did you choose to tackle all of this?

I started this whole journey in 2015; I was just the kid who wanted to give back. I always say that mental health and special needs chose me because I remember when I started I was going to see a lot of people, especially people with disabilities and people who were already there wondering why I was so interested, but it’s something that feels so special to me. Something must not affect me before I say I want to make a change. And if in the future something happened to me like I broke my leg and I had a decision to do a staircase or a ramp and I chose to do a staircase, it would affect me. But people forget that after this moment there is a lifetime ahead of them and many people can benefit from what you started today. It was just a call I had to answer and I did and I’m glad I did. I am also happy for the families who have benefited from everything we have done. It kind of moved into the mental health part because we realized that when we were helping autistic kids, I had a group of over 100 parents and they needed help too. Some of them were depressed, just going through a lot and it tied up the mental part. The NGO organizes an outing for the parents. We’ve been doing this ever since. The yoga part was more about myself, I started doing yoga in 2019, when I was having bouts of depression and I would just go to Jim’s and do yoga and I’m someone who likes to learn more. So starting yoga and being a yoga instructor was because I wanted to know the intricacies of yoga. It wasn’t really about teaching, it was more about knowing and I guess that’s where I’ve been since.

In an ever-changing field, what have you done in terms of personal development in the past year?

I would say that the last two years have been my years of change. Starting in 2018 when I first received my diagnosis, I continued to go in and out of therapy. 2019 I started having suicidal thoughts and eventually I had to see a psychiatrist because my psychologist said it had been too often hence the psychiatrist. I was placed under medication; I didn’t like the way any of the drugs made me feel, I had a lot of changes. I started doing a lot of self-care practices; I meditate, exercise and drink water. There was a mind shift because I was very intentional with myself and it kind of spurred a moment of personal growth, where I started to realize what traumas I needed to heal. For me, it was a life-changing experience. I would like to say that if I hadn’t lived through 2020, I probably wouldn’t have gotten married or married the person I married because before that time I was in a relationship out of convenience for the wrong reasons. I feel like the journey helped me dig myself out, so when I found the right person, I knew he wasn’t someone who would suck my life, but someone who would add more to my life. I believe that in a world where people don’t live their authentic selves, I live my most authentic and authentic selves. I can’t be happy all the time, but am I satisfied? Yes, I’m actually very pleased. I’m happy to be where I want to be. So 2020 has been a good year; 2021 was a year to test what I had achieved in 2020 because I got married, got pregnant and all the things I thought I had overcome kick in again but I thank God 2022 was a bit both ; a new phase in my balance and i think that’s where the intentionality comes in. it’s been amazing, full of ups and downs, but i have no regrets.

What is your most stressful experience and how did you manage to overcome it?

I was diagnosed with actual bipolar disorder and trying to live in a society where we don’t have enough specialists on hand can be very stressful. Mental health support in Nigeria is very expensive but I don’t blame them because it is very limited and you know the whole issue of scarcity; when there is not enough, the price is high. My most stressful time was the first time I had a panic attack. maybe i had other panic attacks but i think that was the one that really shocked me and that’s when i decided to go get some help because there was a lot going on with me; I was struggling, I was crying and I was so emotional. I had to ask for help. It has been my most stressful experience. Fortunately for me, I was already in the field of helping people living with autism, so I had access to specialists. As soon as this happened to me, I realized that I needed help. So I contacted someone who put me in touch with a psychologist and I guess that was the start of my own mental health care story. I did several therapies and had to take medication several times. To heal is not to deny; with sanity, you kind of have to deal with it every time, be intentional with yourself. If you need to take medication, please do so. I struggled through it all and here I am today.

How do you manage to juggle between work, family and your personal life?

It’s not easy, but like I said, I’m a very intentional person and one thing you’ll hear from me is that I don’t like to stress myself out. As soon as I feel like something is stressful for me, I don’t do it. If I’m juggling everything and I start to realize these things are stressing me out, I just call my mother-in-law or my husband to help me with the kid I need a day off to go to school. spa and everyone respects that. And that’s also with work too, when I start to see that I feel pressure, I know it’s not from God because I know God is peace, he’s all calm. Fortunately, I have good support; I have people who help me, my friends, my family and his healthy life. For me, the small gestures of these people are enough for me, I don’t need everything. I think having the right support system and a beautiful husband, parents, in-laws was wonderful and I was able to try to deal with it.

What do you think has been your greatest accomplishment as a woman doing great things?

There’s been a lot of that and it’s in all ramifications, in my career, it’s helping families in need and that’s not even a big deal. It’s when I write and someone sends messages like “Chioma, it was timely”; “I’m glad you sent me this”; “Thank God you wrote this,” among other things. People send me messages and tell me their life story and the feeling that I am even worthy to hear these kind of messages; like the level of trust they have in me. I get the deepest things like things they wouldn’t want to share with their family. They trust someone they’ve never seen in their life to share these things and I think that’s such an honor. Big things, yes, are good, going around the country for projects. It’s just being able to have an impact. I live a life of impact and am happy to thrive. I tell myself that if I die today, I have lived a full life. I am happy to learn and learn hard. I love healthily, speaking my truth healthily; I’m nice because I can be. I try to do things that make me happy and I think I’m fulfilled.

There are many mental stressors around us. What to do to avoid a nervous breakdown?

Everyone will experience it at some point in their life. The difference is that some people have more resilience than others. As a general rule, what might affect me and break me might not affect another person. It varies, but what we can do is find out what your triggers are. It’s more about living intentionally, taking care of yourself, meditating, exercising and drinking water. Live a life of impact too. Kindness does you a lot of good.

What advice would you give to young people who are actively involved in the campaigns of the next general elections in terms of protecting their mental health?

Nigeria is a trigger in general; the kind of trauma we experience is not insignificant. There is so much going on and with politics everyone has their opinions and stuff but after the election there is still life and what have you done for yourself during this time. Did you get triggered the most? Each young person who gets involved in the campaign must honor themselves. When you start to feel like it’s too much, take a step back and come back. Like I said, beyond that, Nigeria will still exist, so don’t do anything that will put you at risk in the long run. Be easygoing, graceful, and kind to yourself, and eventually everything will go as planned. I believe we have a designer orchestrating all of this and it will work.

What would you tell people to take care of their mental health?

Be like Chioma who talks about it all the time. I don’t know why people lie about themselves. Speak because you have nothing to lose. Shame on those who would use your pain to hurt you. For young people, we need to be authentic with ourselves and start being honest with ourselves. Establish useful relationships; keep your priorities under control. Be kind and empathetic. Put yourself first. Only by doing this can you put others first. If you have a mental health problem, get help; forget the stigma. When you don’t speak, you always suffer, so it’s better to speak frankly. Love yourself enough to get help. Beyond stigma and discrimination, there are still nice people. You’re not alone.
