      I was diagnosed by a psychologist and a psychiatrist. It came after I was admitted for being at risk of suicide in the emergency room for 3 days and the psychiatric ward for a week. There were some blood tests done during that period but I can't remember what they were for as my memory of the time is fuzzy.

      A physical exam by my doctor that cause my symptoms. A psychological evaluation. Physical exam.  Personal history. Mental evaluation. Cognitive evaluation.

      I saw a psychiatrist at an outpatient clinic, after friends encouraged me to seek treatment instead of me diagnosing myself from reading books and the internet. The doctor asked me a number of questions and diagnosed me with my conditions.

      When a IMH nurse saw I was having panic attack. I had to eat medication to ease my anxiety and learn progressive muscle relaxation to calm myself down.
