Patient discussion about psychological

Q. What is better- psychological help or medicinal? What treatment strategy should I choose to help me in depression?

A. I doubt the answer to this question has a generic answer for everyone and there's no way someone like myself could answer it for your paricular situation. Its something for medical professionals to determine. Start with your medical doctor. Doctors know most of the other doctors in your vicinity and make recomendations to see others if appropriate. It could be simple with some form of medication or could be counseling or both. Its worth every penny spent consulting your doctor to find out. You may have problems with stress or anxiety as well.

Q. Could be I’ve been having an anxiety attack? My husband is deployed right now; he's been gone for about 2.5 months. I was fine at first, but lately I have started having anxiety. At least I think that's what it is, I've never experienced this before. I get these nagging worries in my mind that just won't quit, and then I start to feel it all over my body like an aching... its difficult to describe. Anyway, I feel like I want to go to my doctor about this, but I am afraid he will see me as just someone trying to get a pill for something. But It also affecting my sleep and my well-being. What should I do? Are there any natural remedies for anxiety that I could try?

A. You can get over it, but you’ll need support. Talk with a friend of yours, pick a “not hysteric one” and tell her about it. If you know other women of other soldiers in his platoon- talk with them and they’ll understand you. Most of the time it’s just a phase and it’ll pass away. Got to a massage with a friend, shopping, anything fun. Talk with your husband and let him calm you down. If all this doesn’t work- talk to your Dr. and I’m sure he’ll understand.
