having severe anxiety
An_252997 posted:
I have recently been experiencing severe, almost disabling anxiety that I don't know what to do about. I am 63 yrs old, I am still working but it ids getting difficult due to anxiety. I feel broken, I worry about everything. I have had an infection and been treated with 3 courses of antibiotics, still having problems. I'm terrified of taking meds, I am crying a lot, and have lost 10 pounds in about 6 weeks. I am down to 108 lbs. I worry about that too. I find it very difficult to eat. I need help, I know that, but don't know what to do. I am having relationship problems with my son and we are trying to work on that, but I feel so depressed and anxious. Anyone??
Reid Wilson, PhD responded:
It's time for you to get some professional help, don't you think? you can search here for a specialist in your community who treats anxiety and depression: if there is no one on the list for your town, search for names in closer cities. Email or call that professional to see if they have a colleague working near you.
