    Can't Stop Crying

    I have my first psychiatric appointment in 4 days. Currently on no meds for depression or anxiety. This depression hit me me like a ton of bricks this week totally out of the blue ...without me having an established primary care physician to call. I can't stop crying. It's like all day every day. What should I do to stabilize myself sans meds till I can see my doc?

    What do you think about Mood Trackers?

    Hi there, I’ve had anxiety for several years, so I made an app (vivaahealth.com) for myself so I can see whether the things I’ve been trying (meditation, getting more exercise and better sleep, etc.) have been working. It’s kind of like a mood tracker, but it also uses my answers to tell me how my anxiety is progressing or getting worse (asks PHQ-9, GAD-7 at regular intervals). I showed it to a friend struggling with depression who thought it was pretty useful, so I’ve been working on this more and....

    In search of guildance

    I dont know if looking for answers online is the wisest thing to do but what the heck. I am a college student at a small community college ( I am 20 years old).

    Daughter has panic attacks every night over homework

    My daughter has been having panic attacks over homework since she was 5. Sometimes they will go on for over an hour, and she rarely gets anything done. She was eventually diagnosed with dyscalculia, panic disorder, and GAD. She saw a psychologist for a couple years and the psychologist felt that putting my daughter through a panic attack every night was not fair to her. Now my daughter is in 7th grade and her teachers are giving her D's because her homework isn't completed. My daughter has....

    Why is there a shortage of mental health professionals?

    Compared to many, I have no right to complain. I earn above average salary, well insured (both medically and financially), I'm married, I have two great kids... but I have no friends (numerous acquaintances), I drink and smoke (luckily, nothing illicit or serious), my marriage is in shambles, I'm considered morbidly obese (BMI 38), and I constantly wish I were not alive. My former psychiatrist retired unexpectedly, my psychologist left my city 8 years ago, and just to remain on medication....
