With the new year starting soon, I've decided to seek help for my anxiety. I've never been to any kind of medical professional relating to my psychological problems, so I figured it's a good time to start. I'm mainly looking for something to help me control my physical problems (heart racing, spinning thoughts, etc.) so that I can at least assert myself properly and appear normal.

My question here is: Who do I need to make an appointment with and what can I expect to get from the first visit? Also, how do I ask for help without looking like a kid who just wants some free drugs? What should I say?
If you are looking for medication , then you should see a Psychiatrist ( doctor). If you are looking for therapy then you should see a psychologist( therapist).

Your general practitioner will probably see you first , then you can take it with him from there . Good luck
