Customer Question
I need to talk...

I need to talk to someone about my relationship. I don't know if something is healthy or not.

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

My mood is blah

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

I have been diagnosed with severe anxiety and panic disorder about 2 years ago. I do not take medication for it

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?

Dealing with which one?

My boyfriend took the day off of work, and is sitting outside my work to "watch" me (I feel) and he doesn't think it's a problem. He has severe trust issues, and this morning felt as though I did something to imply I was going to be unfaithful, and then decided to stay at my work. He think's it is fine, and that the only reason he is doing it, is because he feels it's a waste in gas to go home.

Hello! My name is JOHN. I am sorry you are having this issue. I find his behavior very disturbing. Trust is a basic need in any relationship. Unless there is a reason for this distrust, if I were you, I would tell him either he trust me or do without me. You cannot have a strong relationship with this going on. He needs to get over it or break it off. Understand, that is my opinion. You only other option is put up with it, which I cannot imagine. Does that make sense to you?

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!!
