A 27-year-old male asked:

Public Clinics: have drop in hours in most counties, paid for by the county. Dial 211 (or is it 311?) for info. Or, apply for Medicaid in your state. Then you can go to any provider who takes it. The are counseling services online, including Healthtap that can help. I think a diagnosis is OK if the provider is licensed and trained. You might have to see her in person first to be legal/ethical.
A 30-year-old male asked:

Yes: You will need to re-visit your previous physician or perhaps now, a new one. There are also newer meds coming out all the time, many tout more effectiveness with less side effects. Have you also pursued psychotherapy? Might want to look into that before the meds.
A female asked:
Dr. Steven Griggs
Clinical Psychology 39 years experience
Anxiety is about: feeling out of control or being unable to manage something--outside you, like a big event, or inside, like your emerging feelings, thoughts and memories. The latter three are more likely to surface at sleep onset because of the lessening of ego boundaries. Pay attention to your thoughts just before the onset of adrenaline and take them to a therapist.

I do not want Dr. Griggs to accept me as a patient ..I simply asked him another question and it came back with "i will see if he will accept you"..
