Well I'm a bit scared to do it, but I am going to ask my colon doctor (I know the technical name, but couldn't spell it if I tried...the G doctor, LOL) for some medicine to help calm my nerves when I go on Thursday. I have been very prone to anxiety and panic attacks lately, and I feel like if I don't get help, I'm going to sit in this house forever, and that's not goodSo I'm going to ask him about some medication to help. I'm making a list of everything before I go, and plan to list my anxiety attacks on it. Do you think he can prescribe something, or will he send me to a psychiatrist or psychologist (I'm not sure which is which...)?? I'm hoping that he can just prescribe it, so that I don't have to go to another doctor's appointment, seeing as how THIS one has me so freaked out!! What all have you taken to help, and did it work?? I don't plan to ask for anything specific, but just wondered what types of medicines are out there... Also, do they make you really sleepy when you take them?? I want something to calm me down, but don't necessarily want to be fast asleep!! Any suggestions or comments would be greatly appreciated...thank you again for listening!!
