    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Lately, I get panicky when I know I need to leave the house. I don't handle stress well at all. I have flash backs from my past in snippets. I am really tired but unable to sleep more than a few hours a night. I am taking 20mg of Diazapam, 25- mg of Trazadone, and am supposed to take 300 mg of Effexor. I have been unable to find a psychiatrist in my area. I have been unable to secure a job. My husband is a disabled VET with MS which is now attacking his thyroid gland. To say that stress is part of my life is an understatement. I don't know what I should do anymore. My general practioner is helping until we can can a psychiatrist. Does anyone have any suggestions?
