neurasthenia: obsolete term from psychiatry, implying general debility attributed to exhaustion of the nervous system

Armenia, the first country in the world to adopt Christianity, has had disputes with its neighbors for most of its existence. The revered Mt.

Armenia's borders to the east and west currently remain closed owing to hostile relations with Azerbaijan and Turkey.
