    I may need some time off of work or something to restore my health...

    Long story but I am in a stressful business and with my heart non stop racing and my FM flaring, my mental outlook has deteriorated...

    TC, I HIGHLY recommend Dr. Isabel Puri. She is with Psycare in Solana Beach. I have seen a few Blunders before I found her. She is warm, gentle, kind and very intelligent. Besides perscribing meds she knows a lot about Supplements and recommends an Amino Acid Protocol to help balance the Neurotransmitters.

    I hope this info will help you.

    They are few and far between so I wish you luck finding one. Local NAMI may have names that can be recommended.

    I had a breakdown about 5 years ago. I've seen several psychiatrists and psychologists since then. In general psychiatrists seem to be an odd sort--I mainly see them for meds. In my experience, psychologists are usually better for working through issues, venting, etc. They tend to be better listeners.

    Got so down last week that I was worried that I wasn't coming out of it.
