Depression or laziness … alarm bells – health

Republican People’s Party (CHP) Adana Deputy Burhanetin Bulut conducted a study on the use of antidepressants in Turkey.

According to the survey, 4 crore 80 lakh 226 thousand 612 boxes of antidepressants were sold in the country in 2016, but in 2016 this number has increased to 49 lakh 43 thousand 63 boxes and in 2019 it stood at 49 million 656 thousand 69 boxes.

It is noteworthy that the growth of antidepressant sales in particular has doubled in the last 2 years.

So much so that antidepressant sales, which were 54 million 625 thousand 964 boxes in 2020, increased to 59 million 641 thousand 14 with an increase of about 5 million boxes in 2021.

The data was interpreted as a sign of deteriorating mental health in Turkish society.

Depression or laziness

Militant writer Behan Budak in today’s column also talks about the mental discomfort that occurs during the epidemic.

Entitled “The Psychological Legacy of the Epidemic: Langushing”, Budak writes about the unhappiness that occurred during and after the epidemic.

Behan Budak’s article is as follows:

“The epidemic, which has negatively affected our recent years in many ways, has greatly affected the mental health of all of us. However, when we talk about this negativity, we all usually think of depression, anxiety disorder, obsession, relationship problems and so on. Yes, the incidence of these problems has increased, but I want to talk about a problem that affects many people today, but even those affected do not know: laziness.

Laziness means a lack of enthusiasm, apathy and boredom towards life. The depression pattern is not depression, not the type of illness. This is a problem we’ve had before, but especially after the epidemic, many people have this problem even though they can’t name it.

You do not feel happy, but you are not unhappy. Hobbies that used to interest you and make you happy are no longer attractive to you. You feel like you have lost your motivation for life. You feel restless, but not at an intense level of anxiety. You feel disconnected and disconnected from life and people, but you also do not feel any negative feelings towards them. You feel that you have no purpose or meaning to survive in this world, as the wind blows you into emptiness wherever you go. Despite getting enough rest, you feel tired and exhausted. Having trouble focusing on you.

Yes, these are signs of decay. If you experience a lot of these symptoms then you are also suffering from this problem. We can say that the cause of this situation has been unfolding in uncertainty for a long time. Naturally people hate uncertainty and want to guess what lies ahead. However, such a side effect has emerged during the epidemic process, off, constant hope, and the fact that we have lost control of our lives for some time. Although the epidemic is over, I think we will experience the negative spiritual effects of this process for a long time to come.

There is something we can do to get rid of drowsiness. First, it may be helpful to imitate him by referring to his old days. So before you feel that way, what did you enjoy, how did you spend your leisure time? You can force yourself to do the things you used to enjoy, even if you don’t enjoy doing them now and you have some difficulty doing them. After a while, the things you enjoy may start to interest you again.

Communicating with people is very important. Feeling we have ‘Run out of gas’ emotionally and emotionally. The first thing that makes a person feel good is to interact with other people. If you feel socially isolated, you can try to reconnect through small steps. And finally, we need undivided time zones where we work on one thing. As we deal with many things at the same time during the epidemic, our attention is divided, our enjoyment and the depth of our attention is weakened. Trying to deal with only one thing at a time is one of the best solutions to this problem.

We need to be careful about laziness. If left untreated for a long time, this problem can lead to depression.

Be nice to yourself, see you … “
