The information on this site is provided for educational purposes only. The information is meant to provide a way of assessing whether or not professional help may be necessary. It is not meant to be a substitute for contacting the appropriate professional services when needed, or self-diagnosing and treating major medical or psychiatric illnesses.
If you feel that professional assistance is needed, please talk to someone--a friend, counselor, physician, or clergy and contact your local mental health, human services center. You can also look in the Yellow pages under Counselors, Psychologists, Social Workers or Psychiatrists.
In addition to looking through the Yellow Pages if you are looking for a physician contact your local hospital or medical society, state medical society for a list of physician referrals.
Although I am an internal medicine physician, I will be unable to answer any specific questions that might constitute a "consultation" due to the nature of the legal ramifications currently in place on the Internet. These consultations need to occur with a local physician counselor, or psychiatrist.
