Customer Question
I just can't seem...

I just can't seem to comprehend Narcissism and be able to move on. I really want to make sure I do this in a healthy way for myself, but appear to be stuck. I've done a lot of research on my own and can logically comprehend what I need to do, but mentally can't seem to get there.

Doctor's Assistant: How is your mood? Are you experiencing regular sleep disturbances (e.g. trouble falling asleep, waking up early)?

I'm starting to feel overwhelmed with it all. I want to stop thinking, worrying and wondering about him and all of this. I want to be happy and in charge of my life like I was before. I really just want all of this to go away. I have anxiety often. I'm sleeping ok but occasionally wake up frightened in a state of anxiety

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you been dealing with this? Is there anything in particular that seems to make the symptoms better or worse?

He just left a little over a month ago. The only thing I have come up with is talking to people about the abuse or his drug addiction because he threatened me if I talk

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the Psychologist should know?

SAD but I don't always use antidepressants for that

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

Outstanding response time less than 6 minutes. Answered the question professionally and with a great deal of compassion.

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!!
