hi. I am trying to find some help as the anxiey/choking feeling in my body and obsessive negative thoughts are making everything so hard to do.. I work full time and have a family and can hardly see straight. I would love to do this naturally somehow but lately feel that I need to be on meds. Do you of a good psychiatrist that you recommend in brklyn/midwood? do you know of any alternative healing modalities for this.. tx

If you are definitely looking for a psychiatrist, I would contact Relief, which is a referral agency in Brooklyn- 718-431-9501. They can help you find a competant psychiatrist. I would also encourage you to consider the following before jumping to the conclusion that you should be on meds/alternative supplements.

1) Do you think it is possible that your symptoms are being caused by a medical reason such as menopause, thyroid or diabetes?
2) Do you think your symptoms are a result of a recent or past event of trauma or loss or stress?
3) Do you or other family members have a history of mental illness?

You may not want to answer these questions in this forum, but I present these to you to consider because the cause of the problem you are experiencing may influence your course of action. For example, if you think it is #1, you may want to speak with your physician first. If you think it is #2, you may want a referral to a psychologist or social worker before a psychiatrist. And if it is #3, then you may want to go to a psychiatrist. Hope this helps,
a lynn
