Hi there m_mclean
All the symptoms you have described lend themselves towards depression/anxiety..but in order to know exactly what you are dealing with best get along to your doctor and find out...how about a really good checkup, bloods etc..tell him everything about how you are feeling just now..once you have a diagnosis you will be one step closer to feeling better and can take positive action.
And just because you go to the doc doesn't automatically mean that you will have to take pills etc..you are in control..ask about other options..the choice will always be yours.
what are you doing here? why aren't at your doc's getting tended to?
the advice given to you is spot on. if your doc is worth a d*mn, he/she will check you out physically before doing anything. there are many physical conditions that present themselves as psycological ailments. there are also some psychological ailments that present as ophysical problems. that's why it takes a good doc to determine the actual cause of the symptoms. for example, lack of vitamin c can cause paranoia, a physical prioblem causig a set of psycological symptoms.
i really dislike taking pills. but i have found that without the pills that i take i am totally unfunctional. i hope that this condition does not apply to you. but, like me, i hope that you would rather take the pills and have a reasonably functional like than not take the pills and cringe in fear while feeling self-richous.
keep us informed on your progress - or just stop by and chat.
