Adjustment Disorders – Inability to Cope With Stress

Young and elderly female

When a major life event happens, stress is inevitable.  However, there is a mental conditional called the adjustment disorder, which according to WebMD, is a short-term condition that leaves a person unable to cope with or adjust to certain source of stress, most prominently major life changes.  For example, if a marriage was recently ended, your home is  threatened by natural disasters, or a death of a loved one, are all triggers to the type of stress that can leave an individual unable to adjust to the stress.  Symptoms of adjustment disorder includes but not limited to frequent crying, nervousness, headaches, trouble sleeping, withdrawal, irregular heartbeats, and more.

The Adjustment Disorder is also very common, and it can affect people of all ages, race, or gender, and more prone for seniors in the later years.  If you are having trouble with coping with stress, and suspect that you or your loved ones might have adjustment disorder, then see a doctor.  Treatments for adjustment disorder varies, but the most common one is through psychotherapy, and there is yet to be a way to prevent such condition.
