Stress is common. We all have to deal with stress and stressors daily. Psychological Stress symptoms can most likely included when a person is overwhelmed without relief for an extended time.
Types of Stress
People often feel that they are going crazy, when they are stressed. To help you understand the fine lines between crazy, common and psychological we are going to review several details, including stress symptoms.
Common stress includes temporary depression, helplessness, knotting of the stomach, tension, anger, and so forth. Abnormal stress includes anxiety, helplessness, repeated suicidal tendencies, depression, phobia, and thoughts, tension, ongoing anger, mood swings, and the list continues.
It depends on diagnose whether two or more of these stress symptoms exist, but it stills boils down to stress and fear. It is harder for the person to cope with stress when a person has psychological factors that increase stress levels.
The person often lacks coping skills, has behavior distractions, and lacks education. Some diagnoses are hereditary, while others are related to medical, chemical imbalances and psychological.
Therefore, we need to find a stress management scheme that works with each individual separately but according to the person. Most stress management techniques are useful to almost anyone, however some can cause harm to a person if the diagnose is distinct.
Multiple Personality Disorder-MPD
For instance if you are dealing with a person that has Disassociate Identities, formally known as Multiple Personality Disorder-MPD then you might want to avoid some stress management techniques that helps the person to cope with stress.
Because the person has different personalities, including appearance, writing, thinking, behaviors, activities, tone, and lifestyle and so on, then you may want to skip stress management techniques that include illustrative strategy.
As you can see, we are all different and some of us more so than others, therefore when we are diverting stress management techniques we want to consider all possibilities, including differences of people.
It depends on the person, but most common individuals deal with their stress by planning, deciding, preparing, thinking, and avoiding stressors by minimizing their troubles. This may include altering behaviors, changing careers, redirecting goals and so forth.
On the other hand, if a person has a psychological factor this person may fail to see how stress management for the common can work for them, or else is more prone to triggers that can lead to failure by using the stress management techniques.
Let us take a moment to view a couple of different individuals and how one stress management technique is used on both, including how it affects the individual. A woman walks in a class filled with people, sits down at a large oak table and appears uptight.
At the same time, a young man walks in the door and she too sits down at the table appearing uptight. Assuming that the woman had a rough day and is attending classes to learn about stress management and no psychological weakness exists he begins listening to the psychotherapist and follows in according to the directions.
The entire class is asked to find an area in the room where they feel relaxed. The entire group locates an area in the building, sits in a comfortable location and the instructor tells them to take a few deep breaths, clear the thoughts, and wonder off into a peaceful environment where there are no worries, stress, problems and so forth.
The woman begins to feel the tension leave his body, while the man feels stress increasing taking control of her mind. We have the same technique in progress and two different people in the room, one with a psychological issue and the other an ordinary woman overwhelmed with stress.
The man suddenly jumps to her feet and flees the room, without looking over her shoulder wondering what the other group members are thinking. He storms out the door and runs as fast as he can.
This brings to point that not all stress management techniques are good for everyone, since we are all different. The man was diagnosed with Disassociate Identities who is subject to creating more alters when a person asks them to view other people in an imaginary environment.
The man was frightened, since everyone in the room posed a threat to her person. Learning who we are and what works best for us individually can help us deal with stress.
