Show 253 Screening and Diagnostic Test

I'm still in vacation mode until September. One of the things I hoped I’ve emphasized in the podcast is that you should have a medical evaluation and diagnosis from a health care professional.

The symptoms for anxiety are very similar to other physical health conditions. Having a medical examination would help to take some of the load off your shoulders. 

That is the topic of the show.

If you need support contact the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255, the Trevor Project at 1-866-488-7386 or text “START” to 741-741.

Resources Mentioned: 

For those folks having trouble going to sleep, there is Fiction, non-fiction or whatever floats your boat. 

There is also the long time champ of them all, LibriVox with hundreds of public domain audios that are free to download and listen. I recommend The Prisoner of Zenda by Anthony Hope, read by Andy Minter.
