Toska, do I have a mental illness? - November 28th 2010, 04:14 PM

Toska: No single word in English renders all the shades of toska. At its deepest and most painful, it is a sensation of great spiritual anguish, often without any specific cause. At less morbid levels it is a dull ache of the soul, a longing with nothing to long for, a sick pining, a vague restlessness, mental throes, yearning. In particular cases it may be the desire for somebody of something specific, nostalgia, love-sickness. At the lowest level it grades into ennui, boredom.

I feel every shade of toska. Do I need help? I would rather die from within than ask for help with something I can handle on my own, or isn't serious enough for help. Am I just a moody teenager, or is it deeper than that?

Yeah, even though it its really difficult to talk to people about it, it could be the only way (and the easiest way) to get better and recover. Best of luck!
