ABOUT THIS CASE FILE
I am seeking help to overcome my severe anxiety, major depression, racing thoughts, skin disorder, feel pain in my joints, can't sit for long periods, race around the house, double vision/blurred vision, medication problems. I don't travel anymore, rarely go out to eat, don't contact friends, don't watch tv, don't read anymore, scared to take walks alone. I want help to over come these problems. This all stared when I was downsized from my job via a merger and downsizing after sixteen years in my Job. I love my job. After I lost my job the symptoms started and I went to my family doctor for treatment and then he sent me to mental health professional. I want my life back. I had to sell my home and all my personal items and move home to live with my mother because of my fear of being alone and not being able to take care of myself.
I feel paid in my head and brain, in my heart, throat feels like it is closing up on my, choking on food. My teeth/mouth trembles. Sounds bother me like birds, cars, planes and trains. I want this to stop and feel normal again. I have aged over this and look 20 years older. People ask if my mother is my wife....
These conditions have left me unable to work anymore. I fear waking up and going to sleep. I fear going outside. i fear going to the store, for my medications and going to doctor visits.
I have gone to multiple doctors (psychiatrist and psychologists), family doctor, heart doctor and nerve doctor. They say I have GAD (Generalized anxiety disorder), severe depression, OCD, fear, treatment-resistant anxiety/depression. They have tried many different medications and I have had terrible side effects and I now fear medications. They say I have to make myself better as medication and talk therapy is not helping me. I have been in single therapy, group therapy and hospitalized four times for my problems.
I am currently on medications. I have to take medications to sleep. I am scared from the moment I wake up as my mind starts to race and I fear my future. Everyday is the same in this condition. I am so afraid. Can you help me?????
