Good Afternoon, I am 24 years old and in 2011 I gave birth to a healthy baby boy that the hospital failed to protect and mistakently overdosed him. Due to the stress of my son I have had alot of medical issues (High Blood Pressure, Shingles, Just to name a few of them. I was prescribed 200mg of Zoloft and it has been over six months and It is not working. I have now been told to speak to a psyciatrist and maybe that will help with the stress. It is not that I am loosing it or something I am just not able to control my everyday emotions like everyone else. It seems like the normal that that i use to be able to shrug off and continue with life now hinder me. I know that it is normal for people to be moody especially because i am also a woman it is pretty natural but, my emotions and out burt of tears and anxiety with everyday tasks is becoming too much for me to bare and deal with. I AM SCARED TO GO TO THAT TYPE OF DOCTOR COULD SOMEONE TELL ME WHAT IS TO EXPECT?View Thread
