It depends: It depends on where the stress is coming from and in what situations. You may want to consult a psychologist to discuss the problem.

It depends: It depends on what is stressing you, what resources for renewal and support you have, and what your personal resilience is. Your note indicates you're in afghanistan, an extremely stressful location for many people right now. You'd need to access existing medical, social, or psychological resources for personal assistance there; hopefully family is together and you & they can help each other.
