How can I regain my metal balance and confidence ?

Hi, I m a 19 year old female. I haven t felt like myself in the three weeks since I had my wisdom teeth removed. In the weeks before that, I was under a great deal of stress due to a hard time, finance, family, home life, studies, and health concerns with a loved one. While I was recovering in the week after surgery , I had about three uncontrollable panic attacks, which were enough to make my ears ring. I was anxious about everything. I feel as if I ve gone through something psychological that I m still recovering from. I m finding it very difficult to resume my life as a student, because my concentration levels have decreased and I think I m having a harder time understanding . I am used to not having to put in a lot of effort to catch and process information. Towards the afternoon I get really tired and do things I otherwise wouldn t do, like get lost, and get on wrong buses, forget that a person has entered the room etc. I feel like I m losing the plot, and it s causing me to lose confidence in myself. Once I manage to persuade myself that I m okay, I do something silly again. Will I ever snap out of this fuzzy state of mind?

Welcome to Healthcare Magic
Do you have fever, headache, neck stiffness or pain, drowsiness. You could be having an infection due to removal of the wisdom tooth. Sudden change in behavior and difficulty adjusting to daily routine could be signs of infection. If you have any of the above mentioned problems you should go to the ER. You could be having panic attacks as a result of generalised anxiety disorder. You need to find ways to relieve stress. Do Yoga, Pranayam. Eat healthy. Exercise daily. Get 6-8 hours of sleep. Consult Psychiatrist for the right way to manage your problem, who will help you adjust, give you good tips and therapy.

You seem to be suffering from chronic stress which has been left unmamaged over a period of time. This has been further complicated by your magical thinking and preoccupation with all the negetive and disturbing things alone. Better meet a clinical Psychologist at the earliest, have a proper psycholgical evaluation and psychotherapeutic intervention done
