Sam was a high achiever with a long career in international diplomacy who suffered from anxiety for many years, but hadn’t addressed it. Underlying his reluctance was a deep-seeded fear that a diagnosis –and receiving treatment--would hold him back in his career.
"If you’ve not felt well for a long time and have refused to seek help, you may be self-sabotaging your wellbeing."
Sam experienced crippling anxiety, withdrawal from social situations and an almost addictive pattern of watching the news. Denying his anxiety for years had become disabling. The emotional pain of delaying treatment for so many years was ruining his life.
Dr. Bruce A Kehr, a psychiatrist at Potomac Psychiatry, starts his precision medicine regimen with a DNA test to address neurobiology and individualized treatment options. From there, Sam begins to make progress.
