Ask Eleanor :

Hello, I am here for you and am happy to respond. Give me a moment to carefully read over and consider your question.

Ask Eleanor :

I am very sorry to hear that you are suffering from so much anxiety. Are you asking for a referral to a psychiatrist where you live?

Customer :

Yes, if they take bcbs or phone sessions... afraid to leave house.

Customer :

My Mastercard always checks new internet purchases and calls me for affirmation.

Customer :

A psychiatrist with a psychologist would be great.

Customer :

Manassas, VA closest to me if I try a taxi.

Ask Eleanor :

Do you have a computer?

Ask Eleanor :

Some psychiatrists will see patients via skype on the computer.

Ask Eleanor :

I really think it would be much better to see someone in person. If you can take a taxi that would be a much better choice for you. I am going to search for psychiatrists and psychologists closest to you. What is your zip code there in Manassas?

Ask Eleanor :

I am searching for you. Are you there, dear?

Ask Eleanor :

What I meant to ask before was do you have Skype on your computer, sorry about that.

Customer :

I am hear. There is a Prince William Hospital there with zip code 20110.

Customer :

No skype, not good on computer, either.

Ask Eleanor :

Okay, I have found the perfect place for you. Just a moment.

Customer :

Men are better for me as I have to talk about 2 abortions that are still haunting me.

Ask Eleanor :

http://www.pwfc.com/www.pwfc.com/index.html This is the link for the Prince William Family Counseling Center. They have many staff members, including psychologists and psychiatrists, work with individuals, take bcbs and even do in home therapy!!

Customer :

I love psychologists.

Ask Eleanor :

You will find everything you need there, dear.

Ask Eleanor :

Do you have any further questions for me?

Customer :

I contacted them as I agree they are perfect place. You have to write or fax them for appt. Takes 6-8 weeks to get appt. I can't wait that long... I will die.

Ask Eleanor :

Who did you talk with there?

Customer :

Some Psychs here are no longer taking insurance. Crazy.

Customer :

I have to lay my head down as my migraine is getting worse. Anything else?

Ask Eleanor :

Yes, I want you to call them back and tell them how urgent, acute your situation is and see if you can get an emergency appt. If you have Primary Care Physician, you could call and ask him/her to refer you to this mental center. Will you do this, dear?

Customer :

I am too nervous. I don't even answer the phone unless I emailed them to call me. Thanks anyway. I understand some people can't be helped. My mom had this nervous disorder all her life. She died in her 50

You are very welcome, dear. It has been my pleasure to help you this evening. I hope you will find the strength to make that phone call.
