I need a medical opinion. Two months ago I was told by my

Customer Question

Customer: Hello,I need a medical opinion. Two months ago I was told by my husband Tim (separated for 2 years) that he has Stage 4 Cancer and he is gravely ill. We have three sons together. I care for him as the father of our sons and now I am scared and full of fear. I am doing my best to stay strong and I'm trying to create some form of normalcy for my sons while working full time as a manager. One month ago I was had a conversation with Tim and I was so upset that after I left I had a car accident. I have a constant dull pain in my chest from being so anxious. I have love and support from my friends and family but this situation is so difficult for me. I am a professional but there a moments of every day that I want to cry from thinking about the possibility that my sons may lose their father. My friend suggested I contact a psychiatrist to discuss possible mild medication that may help me during this time but I don't seem to have the time to make an appt. with someone nearby. That's my situation. Thank you for your time.***** *****
