OKMH1218211 Hello, I am going through a lot of stress from my place of employment. I find myself getting a lot snappier than I was before I started this job. I've had to take medical leave, and now I'm depressed about being poor because we don't have any money for anything besides the bare minimum. I am finding there's lots of anxiety because I'm having a hard time finding a new job that pays decent

Hello and thank you for writing to us. My name is***** can certainly understand your conundrum as it is one I see daily in my job where medical illnesses prohibit people from working. And as you say, this lack of work often creates a vicious cycle of lack of income and further stress. So I am sorry you are living this right now. How can I help? What are you doing currently to try to combat you stress and depression?

I look forward to hearing back from you,

-Leah

What Customers are Saying:

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

Corrie MollPretoria, South Africa

I thank-you so much! It really helped to have this information and confirmation. We will watch her carefully and get her in for the examination and US right away if things do not improve. God bless you as well!

ClaudiaAlbuquerque, NM

KevinBeaverton, OR

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
