Ask a Psychiatrist and Get Answers to Mental Health Questions ASAP
Thank you for your post. Based on your description, I can see how stressed and frustrated you must be feeling at this point. Based on your post, I have a few questions for you. What are your current expectations for this site? Are you looking for a referral to a therapist or a few coping skills to decrease your current stress? When did you first notice these changes and what was happening in your life during this time? After your response, I will be able to give you more specific recommendations.
Thank you for your response. Please tell me more about your responsibilities, in the order of priorities. One way to ease anxiety is to prepare as much as you can for your responsibilities. If you have too much responsibilities, can you give those responsibilties to others? Also, have you considered seeing a psychologist, not just a counselor?
I am a business owner, a 400,000 dollar a year business,. with five employeesm, Im the boss, accountant, manager, payroll guy. book keeper. Im a one man machine, my crew helps and I definetly utilize them as much as I can. Its not the amount of work that is an issue. plus balancing a home life with kids. I can handle all that. the problem is my memory, attention, and as of late struggle to stay on top of things which is a big deal because i have always been a driven focused multitasking beast. Now my mind is scrambled, i have ful conversations an forget what was said. I deal with customers and can remember adressing there problems but forget who they are or what it was. I jump from one thing to the next in an obsessive manner. like there is no ease. I have considered seeing a psych. I was under the impression thats what this was for. I understand stress and its effects. my whole issue is in my mind. Its hard to type out. Its like looking someone right in the eyes, during a conversation. Where they feel im totoally focused on an my brain is off else where. this happens work. home. Hell i was just on vacation to take some time off and i couldnt even focus on that. Feels like shit, when I cant easily focus on my girlfriend or kids in a genunine maner. Its like iM good at faking being there when actually Im not. and after having multiple people say they notice something. iM reaching out. theres much more also. So i hope your not just gona say go to a pschy, cause I was under the assumption thats what this was for and paying money for that lil bit of info sucks. I would like to have a pro give some kind of diagnosis. Am I more prone to having adult adhd like my father, are eratic mood swings normal, is it good being a father whos kids words go in one ear an out the other a good thing. is it normal for a normally driven person so suddenly lose interest in his passions. I know in my gut theres something changing. so guess Im gona go see a psych an not waste any more time. I thought this was what I was doing. i know its hard to figure someone out without really knowing them but. I jus wanna know if these symptoms sounds similar to a what my dad has an if my chances are higher at getting what he has.
