Have Mental Health Questions? Ask a Psychiatrist Online
Hello and thank you for writing to us. My name is***** looks like your question was never finished. Can you let me know what your mental health question is?
I look forward to talking,
Good morning, thanks for the clarification. Unfortunately, we are not a prescribing website so I apologize if that is your primary intention of reaching out here. I would definitely suggest you contact your primary care physician to discuss what options you have for medications and that you also consider counseling. i understand that you want to keep your personal life private from work and completely understand that. Hopefully connecting with your primary care doctor will allow you to feel more conformable as it would not raise suspicion, should anyone even know about it. Ironically, don't let your anxiety cause you undue worry about people finding out that you are getting help on the side for your own well-being. Most people in the medical profession would likely completely understand and relate!
As far as counseling, some great counselors can be found here https://therapists.psychologytoday.com/rms/?utm_source=PT_Psych_Today&utm_medium=House_Link&utm_campaign=PT_TopNavF_Therapist including people who see patients on the weekends and in the evenings. As you can imagine, confidentiality and integrity are important to these types of relationships and you may get some great tips and techniques for addressing your situational anxiety without excessive time commitment.
Please let me know how/if I can be more help to you today considering we are not able to supply prescriptions through this site. I look forward to supporting you. I also have a background in geriatrics and completely relate to your stress and strain in caring for your mother. Please let me know if I can support you with that.
