I am at a fork in the road. I do suffer from depression which started when I was first diagnosed with lung cancer and copd in 2011. I started seeing a psychologist, every so often and then during the holidays I would get a little sadder so was put on a low dosage of….??? Since then been up and down but never so bad that I could not get up, get going, go out and do things with my family. Well now the next thing is I started in December of waking up with getting the chills and then start shaking. This would last just a few minutes. Now am to the point of it still happening , having 2 or 3 of these episodes in a day or sometimes none at all. I have had a MRI and a EEG and everything is fine…… so why the chills. Getting counseling was mentioned for anxiety but my daughter thinks going to a psychiatrist would be better then seeing my counselor. I think I would be better off seeing my counselor. How do I decide which one would be better for me. I also want to find out if my thyroid is functioning properly. Could this be a possibility? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
