Thank you for waiting.
I'm sorry to hear about your situation.
It sounds like you have Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD - anxiety disorder) and depression.
Your hypersensitivity to internal and external stimuli may have to do with your neuro-chemical condition and/or some traumatic incidents in childhood. Do you have any medical condition?
Relaxation and Stress
reduction techniques such as yoga, meditation
, Acupuncture, Nutrition and Guided imagery may help you to reduce anxiety symptoms like obsessions and restlessness.
I also would advise you to work with a psychologist WEEKLY for 6 months or longer.
Medication and psychotherapy are effective for OCD.
You may benefit from having a Cognitive-Behavior therapy (CBT) for your anxiety disorder/OCD.
You can call your insurance company and get a list of providers in your area.
Or, you can search a licensed psychologist on internet- such as the PSYCHOLOGY TODAY website. Go to (http://therapists.psychologytoday.com/ppc/prof_search.php?iorb=4764) and enter your zip code and optional category of specialty such as OCD. Read psychotherapists’ profile to see if he or she specializes in Cognitive-Behavior therapy (CBT).
You may also want to create your mental image of psychotherapist that you want to work with – Male or female? To note, many therapists offer initial consultation for free. So, he can see it as an informational meeting. He can ask any question.
I hope you get help from your doctor, a psychiatrist, and/or a psychologist for yourself.
Please let me know if you have more questions or I have overlooked any. Warm regards,
