    Therapist? or what!!!

    My wife was diagnosed with PD at the age of 45, That was 4 years ago. She has a great doctor, but that's the only one she see's. He is a Neurologists and one of the top movement disorder Doctors in NJ. My wife is getting anxiety about every thing. And having major break downs. I would like us to see some kind of Phyciatrist or Therapist. Her Neurologists has her on Prozac. But there of course is something more extreme going on. I know PD comes with all of her moods. Just not sure which direction to go in to help both of us. Especially my wife, I feel helpless seeing her like this. Again I know it comes in the PD territory. I am just not sure how I can help. She seems like she doesn't want to help her self, also she has been on permanent SSD for about a year. And I think she should get involved with something. Yoga I don't know. Anything that has a schedule where she can go and feel better. I can go on but I don't want to go through every detail.
