Seeking expert counseling is a sign of strength. A personal relationship with a caring professional is proven clinically effective..
You are taking a very large number of medications for several problems.
You are being treated for ulcers and/or acid reflux, seizures, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes, and a breathing disorder (COPD ? ).
Some of the symptoms that you are being treated for may be due in part to a great deal of anxiety
, including panic
disorder (the dread feeling in your stomach, the ulcers, the acid reflux, the breathing problems, and perhaps even the heightened blood pressure.
I would strongly urge you to take to your health care provider and have him try you on a benzodiazepine class of anxiolytic (antianxiety) medication such as alprazolam, lorazepam, diazepam, or clonazepam.
This may very well reduce a great number of your symptoms, which may be due to high anxiety.
St. John's wort is an herbal antidepressant which may or may not be helpful. It does react negatively with some medications. A benzodiazepine would be so much more effective, especially if your feelings com in spells and you can take it on an "as needed" basis.
Best wishes to you, and God bless.
