Ask a Psychiatrist and Get Answers to Mental Health Questions ASAP
Hello- Thank you for asking the question. I have over 30 years of experience working with individuals, couples and families & am happy to reply.
I am happy to help with this......
Are you able to chat now?
Do you actually hear voices or is that when you watch a movie you cannot stop from repeating the content you describe?
it's not exactly voices, just thoughts that pop up in my head
it bothers me because I've always wanted time to focus on watching movies and reading and now I feel they're useless
okay- I understand- this is more of an internal obsessive thinking that keeps you from focusing? Is that fair?
by the way I'm not from the US and English is not my first language but it was my college major
This is probably and an anxiety related issue that is very treatable. Have you had problems with anxiety (nervousness) or depression before?
I never had like a breakdown or something but I guess I'm depressed, my biggest problem is obesity but I'm gonna work on it eventually
and losing interest in the things I used to be passionate about is making me nervous
okay- Depression and anxiety go hand and hand and both of these are very treatable- I am going to give you some links with information about depression in women and obsessive thinking.
Like I said, these are very treatable- but you are going to have to talk to your Doctor about this. Do you have a Doctor that you see regularly?
The above explains depression and anxiety and their treatment.
no I've never went to a therapist, actually I've never heard there's therapist only psychiatrists
You are not crazy of anything like that - these are symptoms of depression and anxiety.
If you have access to see a Psychiatrist that would be best.

Yes- I think it will help you. If you feel depressed --and it is not getting better and you are losing interest- this is a sign that you need some professional help.
