While SparkPeople is a wonderful community of support and encouragement when it comes to complex issues such as the one you stated, they are best left to the professionals. Below is a link to an Ask the Experts response as to where to seek help if one does not have access to a medical provider/insurance.

I do not have the money or transportation for medical professionals.

Stop self medicating and see your doctor. Also ask for a referral to some kind of professional mental help, a counsellor, psychiatrist or psychologist.

When I was 8 years old I was raped and did not report or seek help, and have been depressed ever since. When I was in my 20's I was date raped twice, I did not report it or seek help, and anxiety has been building ever since. In my 30's, I began trying self help therapy and saint johns wart, but I got side effect, I couldn't use certain products on my skin, and I couldn't have dairy, and my vagina was giving off a bad oder whenever I got nervous.

After weeks of going to the gym 2-3 times a week and doing the eliptical for about 30 min each time just fine, one week I could only get through about 15 min and I started to see lights before my eyes, I was dizzy almost passed out, exteremely tired, and my head felt suffy. I started reading about Saint john's wart and saw that could be it so I stopped and all the symptoms went away, except that I still can't exercise or do much of anything. My family has a history of diabieties so I'm not sure if I'm sick, or if I'm on the recovery stage of my emotional healing. I am about 10 pounds heavier than before not being able to exercise.
