𝗟𝗔 𝗠𝗨𝗘𝗥𝗧𝗘 𝗖𝗢𝗠𝗢 𝗦𝗢𝗟𝗨𝗖𝗜𝗢́𝗡 ⠀ ⚰ ⠀ ⏰ ⏰ Estamos en momentos complejos donde para algunos la solución es la muerte como alternativa. Habla, exprésate, manifiesta tu sentir, seguramente alguien podrá ayudarte antes de decidir. Cuenta conmigo. ⠀ ❓ ❓ La pregunta obligada ¿Por qué lo hizo? Respuesta no lo sabremos ⠀ 📞 📞 Es mejor antes de llegar a esos espacios estar atentos de nuestra gente cercana, ¿cómo están? ¿Cómo se sienten? ¿Qué puedo hacer por ellos? ⠀ 😯 😯 Después que se van, nada puedo hacer ⠀ 🤕 🤕 La historia relata muchis casos de personas que no expresaban algún malestar. Simplemente fueron acumulando emociones y pensamientos hasta que en silencio colapsaron y no había más opciones para ellos en su elección. ⠀ 👉 👉 Las culpas posteriores no ayudan mucho, los señalamientos menos. El no actuar previamente es la opción más viable. ⠀ 👉 👉 ¿Pero como saber si hay ideas como de auto destrucción en una persona? A veces son tan invisibles como muy marcadas. Por eso habla. Indaga. Comparte, pregunta, ofrece oídos. Ofrece escucha sincriticar. ⠀ 🔥 🔥 Sobre todo ofrece amor. Al final todos necesitamos sentirnos queridos y escuchados. ⠀ 🔥 🔥 No esperemos el final de una vida para argumentar lógicamente lo que pudimos o dejamos de hacer. La necesidad es hoy , no mañana. ⠀ 🗣 📲 Cuídense y escuchen al otro. ⠀ ✔ Salud ✔ ⠀ 🌍 #4agosto #Psicología #psicólogoonline #suicidio #ayudapsicologica #psicólogo #psicologíaonline #exprésate #Vida #lasolución

The study was published by the journal Brain, Behavior and Immunity, and in it, the specialist of the Institution’s Research Unit in Psychiatry and Clinical Psychobiology, Francesco Benedetti, indicated that COVID-19 causes an infection that also has side effects in neurons.

Below, we list the most outstanding results of the study:

28% of patients presented post-traumatic stress
31% suffered from depression
42% of patients had anxiety
Four out of 10 patients suffered from insomnia
20% of patients had symptoms of obsessive compulsive disorder
Women were more prone to anxiety and depression

Given these data, experts recommend that patients who faced COVID-19 have psychological help after discharge.

Some of the reasons that scientists identify as a cause factor for these psychological disorders, is that sometimes people already suffered from these disorders and having COVID-19 intensified them, but also, also the social stigma that they have to face when they leave the The hospital also charges them a bill, as many may feel threatened by their presence, fearing that they are still capable of spreading the dreaded virus.

It has been known that those who have tested positive or who were suspected of COVID-19, had to face violence from their friends or neighbors, who were very afraid of getting it.

It is in the face of this type of actions that specialists suggest that patients who have passed COVID-19 receive psychological help as soon as possible, since society can be very cruel, and they can be very emotionally hurt.
