PSYCHOLOGIST ADVISE ON CORONA VIRUS
Some people might be irked that in the midst of this pandemic some choose to laugh. This is not because we deny its existence and are not taking safety measures. Well for me, I choose the path of courage rather than fear not because I don’t have inner struggles with the reality on ground but I refuse to panic.
A psychologist advised that one should isolate oneself from the news about the virus because you already know what you need to know.
You should not look for additional information on the internet because it could weaken your mental state and give you somatization. I googled what Somatization means and it says it is a form of mental illness that causes one or more bodily symptoms including pain. It can involve one or more organs and body systems such as pain, neurologic problems ( this has to do with nervous system )and gastrointestinal complaints. This has to do with the bowels, anal fistulas, diverticular diseases and cancer
You are advised not to send fatalistic strings or messages because some people do not have the same mental strength as you, you could activate pathologies like depression.
Listen to music at home. Entertain yourself with games etcetera.
Maintain the prescribed safety measures, and maintain a positive mood which will help protect your immune system because negative thoughts depresses immune system and makes it weak against viruses.
And most importantly FIRMLY BELIEVE IN THE ABILITY OF THE ALMIGHTY.
