There are many diseases, which are causally related to each other, the so-called psychosomatic and somatopsychic states. These conditions are considered using two main approaches: psychocentric and somatocentric. After an illness, one is left with a concise memory of the disease, which can perform an adaptive function, but also change the attitude of the patient to others, relatives, colleagues and even himself or herself.
Other current topics include “stress-distress” and the various conditions with resulting range of psychological reactions – from normal to neurotic and severe mental illness of great social significance, such as depression. In recent years, issues related to loneliness, and its relation to anxiety and addictions, have come to the fore.
In the most general sense, the sign suggesting it is advisable to seek the advice of a psychiatrist is the feeling that something is changing in us – in our everyday life, at work, in our relations with family and friends – and all these changes start undermining our priorities and make us doubt ourselves, feel insecure. Most often these are the first signs of change requiring support.
In other cases, the condition changes suddenly, for example in anxiety spectrum disorders, and especially in acute stress disorders, as well as in psychoses of endogenous and exogenous nature.
It is important to pay attention to this change, because the more a person tries to cope on his or her own, without effect, the harder it is to emerge from the abnormal state/suffering without specialized help.
