Our expert says:
Well, clealy this situation requires a good thorough assessment by a suitable specialist shrink. The chest pains, etc., have to be checked out to rule out heart problems ( especally as you say you have hih BP & cholesterol and are on treatment for this ).
This is important as those would both need a priority in terms of treatment, and would have a bearing on the selection of treatment for the depression, anxiety, or whatever other problems are found. Similarly, some of the possible treatments for the High BP / Cholesterol can be related to some psych symptoms, too.
This review could also look at whether there is an estalished or emerging depression / anxiety of a more biochemical nature or whether you are primarily troubled by the stresses and loneliness of the situation in CT.
