    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?
