I just recently moved from texas to california. i guess first i should explain my injury. I was held up at gun point at my job and it affected me very severly in the mind. I suffer from severe anxiety, i will not leave my house not will i let anyone else in my house other than those who live here. I suffer from panic attacks daily and nightmares. I know it seems like a stupid thing to be on workers comp for, and alot of people dont understand, but it is really scary for me when i feel like i am at harms grasp 24/7.
Anyway it happened Dec 3, 2006. My work was really cool about everything. They got me help i saw 3 different doctors a week, one medical doctor for medicine, one therapist, and a biofeedback specialist. I have been put on every kind of anti-depressant there is. I take Xanax daily to keep myself having attacks. Well i started doing very well so my doctors ended their care of me. My workers comp ended in July 07. Then when i got ready to move in aug, the day after i movedi got a check for a large sum and a letter stating i was going to be paid weekly for X amount of weeks. I did very well when i first moved here, no attacks, i could go out wherever and wasnt scared, and i could be around large amounts of people no problem. Well in Dec i started having them again and being afraid of large crowds and such. I cannot even leave my house without crying and hypervenalating, and sometimes vomiting. I am very scared of myself and everything around me. I want to start seeing a doctor again so i tried calling my doctor from texas. they told me I am still covered my texas law so it will not affect my pay or anything because i moved but they have no idea how to find me a doctor here. It has gotten so bad that i am even willing to commit myself to an institution for awhile just so that i know i will be safe.
I talked with the Workers Comp people on the phone today but it is taking forever for them to tell me what i need.
My main question is Is there anyway, online or something, that i can find a doctor to accept me until i can get in touch with the workers comp people to help me. i really need to see someone and there are not many clinics that give psychiatric care. I just want to find someone where i can get some sort of help in until the people at workers comp can find me a permanent doctor.
i know it was a really long introduction i just have never been on any kind of disability before so all of this is extremely confusing so any kind of help, numbers, or advice will be greatly appreciated. (sorry for the typos)
