Hi. I'm a 21 year old female from Kolkata. I have a family and lots of friends. But I feel really underappreciated. There is a lot of talks outside about hiw we shouldn't expect and be selfless and everything. But it all seems very superficial to me. Few years back i was like a goat. I never complained to anyone about anything i felt. I truly used to believe that if I keep on striving for recognition in front of my parents , if i be there for my friends , everything will be ok. Off late i have absorbed the fact that they weren't my true friends, i have stopped compromising for those 'friends' and instead made acquaintances with new people. But unfortunately i cannot do that with my family. I feel really tied down. There is a lot of complicated situation here like immature and biased mother and an angry and biased father . Being the middle child, i feel like my family attaches no calue to me whatsoever. My father has always has an unashamed inclination towards my sister and my mother towards my brother. I have always don't everything in my power to please them, to impress them, to get them to think about me. But it never happens. I feel like I'm draining my energies. And it's affecting my behaviour pattern. I'm very easily irritated and I hate to be at home . I feel like getting lost in oblivion because I feel worthless and I feel like I don't belong to anyone. I was betrayed in friendship by someone i called my bff. And that incident though 2 years old Stoll feels like a knife cutting through me. I need help . I want to straighten my thoughts out and focus on what's important in my life , I have major exams in a matter of two months. I feel really helpless, stuck in a spiral that's heading lower and lower.

How to control on thoughts coming in mind and concentrate on one task. I am a student, how can I concentrate my mind fully on study.
Stress is very common these days due to the busy modern lifestyle and can cause symptoms of disorders of the mind. There are certain signs that foretell an impending mental problem, these signs should be taken seriously and a mental health professional should be consulted.
Some of these signs that indicate that you should go for a mental health checkup include:
1. Appetite disorder - Appetite problems such as loss of appetite or overeating may indicate mental problems. Moreover, eating foods excess in fat and sugar can indicate signs of stress.
2. Difficulties in interpersonal communication - Progressive reduction in interaction with people to no communication at all indicates signs of stress and a mental health professional should be consulted in this case.
3. Insomnia - Significant modifications in sleeping patterns or not being able to sleep due to stress for a long duration of time need to be addressed as they can result in complications.
4. Overactive mind - The overactive mind is a cause of anxiety where the mind is always thinking and thoughts race through causing anxiety and an inability to relax. A normally active mind is healthy but an overactive mind which can't seem to relax for extended periods of time should be looked into.
5. Lack of interest in activities - Showing symptoms were once fun activities seem worrisome and fearful can indicate signs of mental disorders.
6. Emotional distress causing problems at work and home - Inability to focus at work or everyday activities due to emotional stress can result in depression. Thus, symptoms such as these should be diagnosed at the earliest to prevent complications.
