I’m very sorry to learn about your difficult situation. You have gone through hard times for quite a while, and so it’s no wonder that you’re emotionally and physically exhausted. Knowing the States well, I am fully aware that you will not that kind of comprehensive help that you would need right now. However, at the same time I can assure you that there are doctors all over the place who also treat under-insured patients.

I kindly ask you to see such a colleague in person. You will be able to find one, even if you have to ask a welfare organization for a list with physicians who help. You need a complete check-up, physically and mentally and most likely also a NON-HABIT FORMING anti-depressant. If you could find a free counselor on top of that you would feel much better very soon. Don’t hesitate to contact me if you need any further advice. Good luck, and get well soon!

The Probable causes:

Psychophysical exhaustion.

Differential diagnosis:

/for the doctor’s eyes only/

Probable diagnosis:

Post-addiction syndrome
Psychophysical exhaustion
Dysregulated body functions
Psychosomatic reactions

Treatment plan:

Complete check-up by a GP and/or gastroenterologist and by a urologist.

Preventive measures:

Strict routines (eating healthy, enough sleep etc.)

Regarding follow up:

Any time.
