Have Mental Health Questions? Ask a Psychiatrist Online
Hello. This is Dr Geyik and I will be assisting you today.
It sounds like you’re having a really hard time. I can understand that it must be really difficult for you to go to work and I feel that you need to have a break to get your thoughts together. Going to work might be quite overwhelming. So, I think you should have a full assessment by your GP. Sometimes certain medical conditions such as thyroid disease can cause depression and anxiety and your GP needs ri check for this.
You should contact your GP tomorrow for physical assessment. They can discuss various therapies and support as well such as counselling.If you feel quite unwell and need urgent help, you can contact 111 now for assessment today.
Can I ask if you have a mental health key worker or the contact details for the Crisis Team?
If you are not happy with the psychology input, you can ask your GP to refer you to psychiatrist.
You can use various online services and apps to help your anxiety. A good website is mind.org.uk
Mind.org.uk gives a lot of information to help individuals deal with anxiety and grief. It outlines various strategies regarding mental health conditions.You can also help yourself by using distracting techniques, talking to a friend, reading, etc.If you feel unwell or really overwhelmed, you can go to A&E as they have mental health service 24/7.
Could you please tell me what exactly you were looking for?
I’m trying to give you as much advice as possible. Anxiety can be complex and there is no easy answer. I’ve given you various options available at this time of the day.

For significant anxiety, this is what I recommend,
I generally suggest the system of 3-2-1 for improving mental health "Learn to Connect Well"This meansDo 3 things well - Eat well (Healthy diet with fruits and veggiesSleep well - min 8 hours (I know this is the problem here)Exercise well - At least 150 min per week of moderate exercisethen connect to 2 thingsConnect with Friends & Family - try video call and physical meetings outdoorsConnect with Nature - grow a plant, go for a walk in nearby wildernessand finally, Learn 1 thing newAt least learn one new skill - whether its a new language, or cooking or something that you always wanted to do.Please let me know if I can be of further assistance,Please consider taking high dose Vit D to have blood levels in the range of 50 to 100 n/ ml, this translates to around 10,000 IU per day for most people, please confirm this by Vit D blood level testing as well,Also, try a high dose probiotic supplement like VISBIOME or VSL 3, these should be taken in the range of 500 billion CFU per day.Take these for at least a couple of months, you may see a marked difference in your health problems,Warm regards & stay safe
