I am very allergic to a lot of foods. Gluten, soy, dairy, flax, fish, nuts, and garlic. I also am recovering from breast cancer. I ve had a lot of allergic reactions lately where my heart goes racing after either smelling or eating the food. I ve suffered from anxiety in the past and have managed to get through them with a lot of psychotherapy. These symptoms feel like I m having now feel like anxiety attack. I can t tell if it s the food I m eating or not and weather to take a Benadryl or something else. I just had an attack while I was washing my hair and after looking at the ingredients there was soy. However I ve used it before and I was fine. Could the smell create a chemical stimuli?

Well I have mental health issues and I feel bad and cheated. I worked as a teacher in 1997 thru 2000 and I really did not want to work in this profession. I ended up having a nervous breakdown and was diagnosed with a severe mental illness. Today I would like to back to work but there seems to be an absence of seriousness concerning my case. have seen more mysticism than reality and I just want someone to talk to that is reputable and equipped to deal with serious mental health questions. I have spent several years in psychotherapy and it seems that there is always some question about my personal relationships, that gets in the way of my being able to focus on the issue of going back to work. I worry tremendously because my social life has been halted as a result of going into therapy while transitioning into my professional life. I don t know what to do.
