If you or a loved one resonate with any of the following symptoms, it might indicate an underlying mental health condition:

  • Prolonged feelings of sadness or hopelessness
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Extreme mood swings
  • Avoidance of social interactions
  • Loss of interest in favorite activities
  • Constant fatigue
  • Sleep disturbances
  • Persistent worry or anxiety
  • Overwhelming guilt
  • Paranoia or hallucinations
  • Reduced libido
  • Reliance on drugs or alcohol
  • Difficulty coping with daily events
  • Persistent anger or hostility

If any of these resonate, MindMD Wellness is here to help. Our trained mental health professionals are ready to assist.

Anxiety Disorders

While everyone experiences anxiety from time to time, some people experience it in more intense and even debilitating ways. Some people experience such intense feelings of fear and anxiety that it actually prevents them from being able to go about their daily lives. People who suffer from this type of anxiety might actually have what’s known as an anxiety disorder. In fact, anxiety disorders are one of, if not the most common mental health conditions in the United States today, affecting over 40 million adults.  Types of Anxiety Disorders Panic disorder Social anxiety disorder Generalized anxiety disorder Phobias People who suffer from anxiety disorders tend to experience the following symptoms: Felling tense or jumpy Constantly feeling dread or apprehension Restless Irritability Sweating  Tremors Pounding or racing heart Shortness of breath Headaches Fatigue Insomnia Upset stomach  Anticipating or expecting bad things to happen

Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder

More commonly known as OCD, obsessive-compulsive disorder is another fairly common mental health condition. Those suffering from OCD tend to have repetitive, unwanted, intrusive thoughts and irrational, excessive urges to do certain actions. Most people know that these thoughts and behaviors are irrational and don’t make sense, yet they can not stop on their own.  What separates people with OCD from those who also tend to obsess over certain things is that for those who suffer from OCD, their obsessions and compulsions tend to last for long periods of time and often prevent them from going about their day in a normal or productive way. Examples of this include: Constantly washing your hands out of fear of germs Repeatedly checking to make sure you locked the door or turned the stove off Counting and recounting the same thing over and over again For someone to be diagnosed with OCD, not only must they have obsessions, compulsions, or both, these obsessions, compulsions, or both must be so extreme that they prevent the person from being able to go about their daily life in a normal way.

Depression and Dysthymia

Much in the same way that people might experience anxiety or have obsessive or compulsive tendencies, people also experience depression during their lives. However, just because a person may find themselves depressed at times, doesn’t mean that they suffer from depression or a depressive disorder. Someone who suffers from depression deals with more than just the occasional feeling of sadness or having a bad day. People who suffer from depression are depressed for long periods of time to the point where it can be debilitating and prevent them from living their lives. When left untreated it can even lead to suicidal thoughts and actions. Those suffering from depression tend to show the following symptoms and behaviors: Loss of interest or pleasure in activities Changes in sleep patterns Fatigue or lack of energy Changes in appetite or weight Trouble concentrating or making decisions Feeling hopeless Psychical aches and pains Suicidal thoughts or actions Feelings of low self-worth

Eating Disorders

Most people tend to be conscious about their weight and what they are eating. They might stay away from certain foods or exercise daily so that they maintain a certain weight or a certain lifestyle. For people that have eating disorders though, those constant concerns or obsessions about what they are eating can lead to serious emotional or physical problems. While most people associate eating disorders with people who might lose too much weight, it actually works both ways. Some gain significant and unhealthy amounts of weight as well as a result of their disorder. Some common types of eating disorders include: Anorexia Bulimia Binge eating disorder
