Hello my name is Emily and I used to see a psychiatrist. While there he said he thought I had Paranoid Schizophrenia, he ended up passing away and now I am searching for a new psychiatrist for me to attend. I am not sure what 'Specialities' the psychiatrist needs to have. I see a lot of 'Anxiety Disorders' when I check their 'Specialities'. But for my case I am not sure what to look for. I have gotten worse. I now have bad dellusions, hear things, and am suffereing from a few 'Voices' in my head(usually just one), what is really pushing me to see someone was last night I had what I think to be an 'Attack'. My head began to pound and the voices were so loud and it felt as though they were pushing me out of my head. When I would open my eyes they would roll to the back of my head, and when I woke up this morning I couldn't, and still, can't really remember a thing.
So. I am looking for a professional in the Chesapeake VA area, but it does not have to be exactly there. I was using 'http://www.docspot.com/' and I just wasn't sure, none of the 'Specialites' said things like, 'Mental Disorders' or 'Schizophrenia'.
Look up Nami (National Alliance of Mental Illness) and Narsda. They may or may not be able to find you a direct referral but they should be able to give you some information on agencies who could. Also perhaps a family member or guidance counselor could be of assistance.
