Psychological distress

Psychological distress is largely defined as a state of emotional suffering characterized by symptoms of depression (e.g., lost interest; sadness; hopelessness) and anxiety (e.g., restlessness; feeling tense). In medical term psychological distress is some form of neurological defect responsible forthe disordered thinking and behavior, and requires medical treatment and care.

These symptoms may be tied in with somatic symptoms (e.g., insomnia; headaches; lack of energy) that are likely to vary across cultures. The existence of psychological distress has been recognized for thousands of years.3,900 years old Egyptian manuscript provides an accurate picture of the distressed person as pessimistic, his losing faith in others, unable to carry out the everyday tasks of life and his serious consideration of suicide.

Anger or irritability, anxiety and exhaustion are typical states of psychological distress, as well as the tendency to devalue and an inclination to isolate, stay away, not engaging in activities with others. Experience these symptoms for two weeks may be a sign of distress. However, when the individual does not feel these symptoms it does not mean that the person is really fine.
