Question first psych visit tomorrow -need advice

I have my first psychiatrist meeting (consultation) tomorrow for severe anxiety. Any hints or advice? I have no idea what to expect. I am bit nervous and am not sure what will happen. Any response or advice would be most appreciated. Thanks.

Re: first psych visit tomorrow -need advice

WILLC----THE ONLY ADVISE I CAN GIVE IS TO BE TOTALLY HONEST ABOUT EVERYTHING YOU THINK AND FEEL. IF IT HELPS TO WRITE things down before hand do it. sometimes i can't remember everything that i go through if it takes awhile to get an appt. this has worked for me with all dr.s. try to think about where you are, what's happening and your reaction to different situations and the feeling it brings on. they will ask alot of questions about your life past and present to try to get handle on where the anxiety/depression is coming from. kee[p in mind that some people suffer from situational scenerios and some suffer due to chemical imbalances. we are all different. wishing you the best. please write tomorrow and let me know how you made out.
