Have Mental Health Questions? Ask a Psychiatrist Online
Hello, this is Linda again. I can see that you are very distressed and consumed with worry about your feelings and fears of not being able to love and/or love your husband. I am sorry you are going through this and would like to help. I am free later this evening from seeing patients and will return to help you. In the meantime can you tell me if you have ever been professionally treated for an anxiety disorder either with medication or therapy? have there been other situations in your life where you became obsessive about a situation in your life, whereby you could not control how much you worried over it. I will be back to communicate more asap. Sincerely, ***** ***** LMSW, CASAC
Would it be possible for us to talk live this evening? I can offer you this service and maybe we can come up with a plan that will help you. Please let me know as soon as possible and I will send you the offer. Linda
Okay, we can just talk here then. And no this is not serious, anxiety disorders are the number one mental health issue facing men and women today. Many people do not seem to know how to calm and soothe themselves when struggling with worry and/or stress and/or inner conflict. As I said earlier medication is the first line of treatment for anxiety. You may also have traits of OCD and I would like you to purchase a workbook online that is called Anxiety and Phobias to do some independent work at home to help you with understanding and coping skills.
