Hey i am 21 year old male, i had been sick for a while i can't explain what i had exactly but in short cause of this sickness it took me almost a year to get cured so during this year i wasn't myself i wasn't able to study, workout, nor work basically can't do anything all time dizzy and unconscious and short of breath so now i am cured i guess but i still have some side effects... Apparently i have depression now, i know that depression is not state of being unhappy like i can't just decide to be happy and get rid of it xD so how does people usually get rid of it other than meds or psychiatrist cause i believe i can work on it myself i just need a guide on where to start.
Also i have stress is it related to depression? Like something i just get stressed and black-out i hurt myself unconsciously, sometimes i scratch my arm or my legs or hit my head on the wall, with my fist idk i just hurt myself unconsciously and i feel like i need to feel pain to wake myself up from this, and it doesn't have to be something frustrating literally anything can get me stressed sometimes i am able to control my breathing before i lose my consciousness sometimes not but it just gets triggerd by any simple thing such as for example if i tried to study, i get a headache and i need to rest to cool my head down otherwise if i tried to force it i will get mad and lose consciousness... I know how illogical it sound but yeah im trying to fight it and study so i hope anyone can help and set me on track :)
