Ask a p-psychologist anything!
I'm h-here for you, Anonymous!
Okay. What do you WANT to do with your life?
You know what ching? I will always be here.
Btw yesterday I attendended a conference of psychism and quantum physics. You should check the experiments of how attention affects to the nielhs bohr experiments of light
Aren't you done yet?
No, mostly because it isn't.
Interests aren't the same as aspirations. Lack of interest = anhedonia. What do you WANT to do, given unlimited time, energy, money, etc
Hey, I don't tell you how to shit post, you don't tell me how to stutter.
Why do you care what others think of you?
You misspelled "gay". Cuz we all know that's what you really are for me.
*Since i acted acted a bit harsh in your regards yesterday i'm willing to give you the benefit of the doubt, do you think the anon in the picture is stating such things to put people against you/for the lulz, or because you really hurt him/her in some way?*
Is it possible to recover and become functional from parental narcicistic abuse?
My mom has it and she has been off and on abusing me in the "control cycle" for over 20 years.
I don't feel any emotion anymore I basically am a wandering zombie just doing what's required to keep living. I don't care for social interaction with other people, when people try to start a conversation with me I typically think of a way to easily end it quickly. My ability to learn things stupidly fast and be good at them makes me stick out from others and brings me unwanted attention. So most of the time I purposely under preform to keep my self off the radar so to speak.
I don't know the anon in question, so I can't comment.
Nothing wrong with a little girlyness; I should probably work on my femininity too.
After all, people have said I'm too clinical. What do you think?
Describe it in better detail. Are you lacking an emotional response, or simply don't care about consequences?
How do I solve my life, oh dearest of anons?
Thanks, that makes one of us!
Yes, if you are able to escape that toxic environment. Never quite heard of "parental narcissistic abuse" though.
>What do you WANT to do, given unlimited time, energy, money, etc
Well, that's the thing. I can't think of anything I'd do different even if I had all the money/time in the world. Maybe I'd buy a house and a car so I don't have to worry about that stuff anymore but then it's back to shitposting on /b/.
Explain dissociation in a paraphrenia syndrom moron>>682602736
I sit on this website all day, I want nothing more than to go outside and go for a run, or do something useful. Every time I try, I can't do it because I want to sleep or go on 4chan.
How do I motivate myself?
Garden fag here.
Ive only scrolled past your threads, usually the time they start is a major inconvenience.
And the gardening was just an example, it feels like my whole life I cant do my own thibg. Cause I hate being judged
She didn't show up again idk why
You know what happened to her?
Get a degree on psychology and stop being a Hyong—nu to.my beloved science you fucking gook.
Asia was once the culprit of the world in what refeers to science. Your culture, people aand heritage is wonderfull. Dont be a chong and behave like a person.
See, its more fun when someone types "LEWWWWD!!!"
*Perfect, since there are no real proofs you did something bad to him/her i will stick with your truth. I beg your pardon for all the time i made you waste.*
Is there a question somewhere in here...?
That's not a mental disorder, that's a fetish. If you want to work on minimizing it, seek a psychotherapist.
And you think not speaking up will gain you friends, acceptance, and others to talk to?
You can't talk to people if you never talk, Anonymous.
That's anhedonia then; seek medical attention.
Well, given Paraphrenia is a form of schizophrenia including ONLY positive symptoms WITHOUT negative ones (such as cognitive decline), I'd say disassociation in it is a bit odd; disassociation tends to be a negative symptom.
However, the syndrome does cause paranoid delusions and vivid hallucinations, if that's what you mean by "disassociation"; generally, disassociation is mental detachment from reality, which tends to be a negative symptom.
However, given disassociation is a descriptor for a WIDE VARIETY of different detachments, I suppose rampant delusions COULD be considered detatchment from reality.
You motivate yourself by DOING. Pick a small project and work your way up.
People are going to judge you no matter what you do, so do what makes you happy Anonymous.
Already have one, try again.
Yes, but personality disorders are very difficult to treat, so that's probably why.
Tell me more. What are you jealous of, why do you want to stop being jealous, etc.
Thanks for your reply, I'm actually trans, so that's awesome.
Also, I'm confused. I thought I made that post like a month ago, but here it is on the front page of /b/. How does that even work?
Time travel. Don't question it.
How are you damaged? I need more information than that!
You need incentives to go out and exercise. And some will power to do so even when you don't feel like it. My motivation is standing in front of a mirror and seeing all that I want to change. Plus weighing myself every other day. I see the fat that I want to get rid of and as I exercise and diet I see that weight loss on the scale. Which motivates me more.
If you find exercise too boring, like I do, I'd suggest audio books, you can listen while you walk, jog, bike, etc. And it makes time go by a lot faster.
A small project?
Well, I'm trying to work my way up to going for a run, so I don't really know anything smaller than that. Perhaps going for a walk, or just push-ups or something?
Nevertheless thank you for the help, I hope I can stop being a lazy faggot soon.
*Unfortunately no, i came here to discover what and if something happened between her and Alice and since there are not enough proofs that something happened i have to assume that she made everything up, even if i'm not totally sure of those things since she claimed repeatedly that Alice was dangerous, wich is not how a common troll would have acted.*
Yes, try something IN your room, then OUT of your room, then OUTSIDE, etc etc. Work your way up, no matter how small you need to move.
The journey of a thousand miles starts with a single step.
Yes, it's very boring.
Tell me more. Have you been diagnosed?
Oh you do not even want to know. It's very boring.
Do I seem dangerous to you?
are we all but doomed to just pass the time round with scenarios played out randomly in which we fool ourselves into thinking they're meaningful as a natural defense to not spiral down into complete oblivion of the dark abyss that is our mind, our life, our inevitable death...we are but mere animals, arrogantly lollygagging around this beautiful miracle of a planet thinking we are beyond nature...we are a lazy primitive arrangement of atoms who blindly believe we are the gods of our own creation, fueling technology to fit our needs, modelling this earth to suit us thinking we control it, failing to realize we have no grasp of it, nor anything, nor will we ever...rest but not in peace humans...
Time. Time to pass. Delusions to create happiness, to create entertainment...distraction from what is time.
Goals are important. If you can't reach your current goal set smaller more easily obtainable ones that will help lead up to that goal. The exercise on this image is good for burning fat primarily if you want to do that.
>interestingly enough about 2/3rds of the weight you lose is exhaled as carbon dioxide. The rest being pissed or sweated out as water.
I'm lazy as fuck and I can't start working. I mean I can concentrate for about 30 minutes if I can start but after that my concentration drops to shit. I'm academically succesful too. And I always feel like I don't deserve any of this shit. Am I just a ungrateful brat?
Sorry, so basically I have severe attachment issues where I can feel a connection with someone but I can't feel the bond or tie with them. It's happened with every relationship since my first one which left me physically and psychologically damaged. I love the person I'm with to death, but I don't know how to just keep myself from saying "no" to someone besides just not leaving the house and it's taking a toll on me, as I have not left the house in around 4 months. How do I just train myself to not fucking cheat?
I've been feeling anxious and nervous and my doctor put me on medication to put me in my place, it's called Place-bo. But I'm starting to get worried about the side effects.
Can you recommend a different treatment?
>repeatedly claim someone is dangerous
>not how a common troll would act
no I haven't but I'll do crazy stuff like wait until people leave the room to leave the house. I read the wikipedia article and it fits me perfectly. If a restaurant/bar is crowded I won't enter. etc
It's a bad cycle, I talk to someone and assume they are annoyed by me since they don't want to talk. Or I get nervous when someone talks to and I dont know what im supposed to say back so I can't keep a conversation
So I guess it's social anxiety or something.
*I know nothing about you and i'm not willing to judge your dangerousness from the pictures you use.*
Since like 2 weeks I'm being paranoid about having different terminal diseases to the point of crippling depression and being almost unable to breathe sometimes, most of the symptoms that make me paranoid appeared after the paranoia started but I can't spend a single day without freaking out about dying because my hip hurts or thatonemolethatsurelywasntthereyesterday or whatever the bullshit reason my mind clings on to. I work nightshifts mostly (9 months now) and I also started getting extremely sleepy during the day, everything gets better during the night. Sometimes I feel fear without even thinking about anything specific, just like: BAMF! Fear time!
I'm going to see a specialist soon, but still curious about ur opinion.
yeah and she keep searching for reimu everytime alice is making threads for apologies but always fail instead we have a small talk before the thread dies after alice leave or slept.
I'm a girl, and it's simple: I have knowledge. How do you think I got it?
No, mostly because most of that isn't true.
Why do I help people on /b/, despite not enjoying it in the least?
Sounds like ADHD honestly. Have you been to a doctor?
You sound a lot like me in college hah
Sounds like you need to access a psychotherapist, but one thing I've seen help is keeping some signifier (such as a ring) to remind you in such situations that you are already with them.
Basically, you lack the "wall" to stop you from doing such things, so you need to build one yourself.
Sure, nocebo is a recommended alternative.
Go to a doctor and get diagnosed then.
Actually? Horror games. They simulate fearful environments but are safe, therefore are helpful with PTSD and other emotional scars.
I meant more my actions than my picture, if that wasn't obvious.
can stress/anxiety or other such things inhibit ones ability to orgasm or gain sufficient arousal to orgasm with great pleasure? Or am I just lacking testosterone or any sense of what I sexually desire?
>>682604520 (You) I am this. No, I haven't been to the doctor yet. And also I want to include this. I have something similar to a mind fog. (Best way I found to describe it.) Oh also I want to include no matter how much I sleep the mind fog is the same. I find this quite weird honestly. 11 hours or 4 hours it's still the same for me.
Absolutely. Stress can ruin orgasms.
Sounds like going to a specialist is your best bet.
Yep. Dats social anxiety. Seem professional help.
Seek medical help; that could be a lot of things, none of which you can manage on your own.
Then you have anhedonia; seek medical attention.
My pleasure. Good luck!
Looks like Trump is going to be the GOP nominee
How does that make you feel?
Is it best to just spend your time seeking knowledge of the past to better go forward? I mean, the western world is pretty fucked, it could be worse, could be better, but it feels overly stale, everyone doing the same sort of thing minus variables...so what is it we're supposed to do? Try to obtain 'happiness' through methods we see fit? I just feel pretty lost, stuck in a cycle just doing things for the sake of doing them or because it's what's expected of me. And why are such things expected of us? We never asked to be born, yet a realm of responsibility was thrust upon us...who knows...life is fun and we all get out of it the same way in the end
So? Who's was your strangest patient, OP?
Okay guys, I've got to get changed for work.
Sorry to leave a little early today, I have an outfit planned out.
I'll be back at 8PM, feel free to email me at [email protected]
I lack confidence in everything i do, i want to stop being a NEET but i can't i´m scared people the same as me will be better, nobody wants a loser.
How do i go from a literal 0 to a hero?
*My dear "Rainbow Puppeteer" you are the one that stated to be a "bad person that does good things", am i right?*
025 here, this is my last question. You should not answer this if your recommendation for me getting medical help is final. What do you think it is. And I'm sorry that I forgot to say this but I had quite the emotional trauma a few months ago and was severely depressed. However I finally can feel things but I feel some last thing is missing. Any idea what this might be?
Lol you talked to me for the entire thread and you didn't even know~
ahhh I see, so a kink is just perhaps ones own personal preference? a thing you like to get off to, but dont necessarily get off to it all the time?
In that logic for example, wouldn't for most heterosexual males, getting off to any female would be considered a fetish?
So you were in here talking about yourself pretending to be someone else literally this whole time? The fuck dude get a life
my problem is a lack of motivation.
Every time I try and use the "I'm such a loser, I should do something with my life" method, I just get sad and go to sleep.
It doesn't work, what you're trying to do.
More time travelling! I didn't post that one, either! I only vaguely remember it! I guess you're using some kind of script to bring back certain posts? Or do I have an alter ego like in Fight Club, except instead of starting an organisation I just post on 4chan?
If you want to see my strangest patient, look no further than here:
This person masturbates using dog blood, after she's orgasmed from killing the animal.
Apologies for missing your post two days in a row.
A bad person who does good things is not dangerous, darling.
why do i have a hard time relaxing around my girlfriend?
i am constantly paranoid of everything im a bout to say and constant mode of fear but i love every moment with her and its what i live for
I have a psychologist friend who hates him only slightly less than she does Cruz. Told me about a person she was meeting with for the first time that took her almost 4 times as long to realize that the person was clinically a sociopath, because the person was talking about Trump and his politics. Eventually the person said enough things that the sociopathy was discernable outside of the Trump politics but it's telling that a sociopath likes him so much.
My life doesn't begin until I graduate
It's hard to understand you when your mouth is full of salt
Interesting. Is she suffering from Psychosis? And I understand! I'm just a junior, interested in your work. The other anons actually need some help.
How do u make friends?
Every time I try and converse with another person I end up sitting there silently with them until one of us leaves.
I think if I can figure out how to make friends, I can finally begin living a happy life.
So can you help me?
You should try to think up of random topics. That would relax them, and soon they'll start talking about themselves.
I know, right?
-hug- i've been really busy
*"Good things" if you consider your actions helpful, "bad" might give you that but depends how bad you actually are.*
I always have no idea what to talk about.
Absolutely no clue, which is why we start talking about stuff, and 5 minutes later, it's just completely silent and fucking awkward.
What topics do you think work best?
Then go cage your penis and don't bother trying to get it out of there until you do something productive with yourself.
One thing is to be driven, but another thing is to not even fight for what is yours. If you lack both, then you definitely need to boost that testosterone somehow. Do sports, try to be someone who can stand up for yourself.
honestly dude i really fucking wish i would
but im nervous that she will think its pathetic and retarded (bbecvause it is) why cant i rationalise this myself and believe it???
dont you think it would be emasculating to confess something like that
Probably what you do most, what you're most comfortable with. Alternatively, you can probably start reading some news, which may lead you to do research on topics outside of your comfort zone.
-giggles- how are you?
Lost my family, lost job that I was working when I wasn't at school, learn English myself in this shithole country. Will try to learn Japanese language and literature to get great money from translating job. Should i end this life or not ?
Meaning she is suffering from psychosis. Interesting.
It's hard to talk about topics you're interested as the first topic, research shows.
Nothing just new math lessons in summer. Everything just normal except me.
Talk about the weather. Ask them their opinions on various topics; food, politics, etc.
I'll try. I'm not a full-fledged psychologist, yet. I'm probably OP'S junior. I am on a psy.d course, though, one year in.
Guys she is gone, let's talk behind her back
And I'm the person that should get medical attention for ADHD. Can you answer my question?
this is my last question. You should not answer this if your recommendation for me getting medical help is final. What do you think it is. And I'm sorry that I forgot to say this but I had quite the emotional trauma a few months ago and was severely depressed. However I finally can feel things but I feel some last thing is missing. Any idea what this might be?
You're worrying too much about being a "hero". Spend time around people that look like great successes, and cracks will always start to appear. Nobody is a hero or a 10/10.
If you want to improve yourself, and you're currently a zero in your own book, just keep taking small, frequent steps (you decide the frequency- maybe weekly?), but not too frequent or you'll burn out. Eventually you'll be happy with yourself, and will probably keep on taking steps to continually improve yourself just out of habit rather than self-hatred.
*Seems like the thread became useless all of a sudden, farewell.*
A psychotherapist can REALLY help you with this. It feels like it's locked away in your consciousness .
I think you quoted the wrong person, but in my view it just seems like you need to do some introspection for a while. I used to feel like that a lot. It could be something, or it could be nothing. Just spend time reflecting and being honest with yourself, I'm sure you'll figure it out in the end.
Even ASPD is curable. Either way, I've also provided my email above. If you need some help, I'll be there. See you, everyone!
Oh boy i'm a zero in everybody's book
NEET for example, gf-less since 2 years ago and fucking scared to do anything, not like i have
Also is it me or Alice won't respond on steam
I'm also a psychologist, in fact I'm that psychologist who used to post here a lot around 2007/8.
And this guy's advice actually seems pretty good.
I mean I can't discount the possibility he's trolling but from the small sample of posts I've read he seems on the level.
And before anyone asks the answer is yes. This place does attract psychologists because we are simultaneously fascinated by this completely unique community and compelled to try and help people once we see how much pain this site has on display.
Also, in case anyone is interested one of the main attractions if /b/ is... catharsis.
Fap, ylyl, rage, baw. All of these types of threads are essentially about catharsis.
Alice has gone to work, so she's very much afk right now. I had no gf for 3 years, and now I'm happily in my first real relationship. These things take time. If you're NEET, look around for shitty jobs, it doesn't matter what kind, just something to give you experience and money. That will get you out of the house, allow you to make connections, and make some money. If there are no jobs, try volunteering, or joining some kind of club. There is always a way.
*If you really seek help fron said person then i suggest you to use her personal email. I do believe she stated a couple of threads ago that she was never on Steam, so she may not even had seen your help requests.*
Math is great because it's a skill and not a talent! You just have to remember the rules
Are you talking about me? I'm not Alice's strangest patient and I have nothing wrong with me
*Fuck off, go steal someone else's identity.*
I'm glad you know that.
I need to sleep now i hope we can talk too each other again anonymous.
Well, since I'm here I might as well offer you a consult.
Anti-social PD and psychosis, and violent tendencies, with impulse control issues (obviously) and extreme sexual fetishes?
How have they not been institutionalised?
Have you considered that she might be trolling?
Or alternatively that the 'reality is a dream' thing is actually a defense mechanism. Not a psychosis but a literal denial of the horribleness of her life? Consider the possibility that the anon has impulse control disorder and extreme sadistic paraphilic disorder. She cannot stop herself from murdering animals for sexual gratification.
A person with normal empathy may well completely repress the caring part of themselves, or even the reality that goes with it, rather than face what they are doing.
Now, obviously, the line between a 'defense' that is that extreme and an 'actual' psychosis might be too fine to draw in any practical way. But it could have dramatic impact on treatment options.
And it might even mean that they have empathy, and that is rather a big deal.
I would never do something like that...
-kisses your cheek- I like you and I hope to see you again <3 sweet dreams
If they have a disconnect from reality, and a strong one, it's probably psychosis. You bring up some strong points, though.
*Might as well bring him to the dog murderer that seems to dwell here.*
Running out of pictures, myself.
Im taking a psychology class Im writing about 4chan and it's effects on internet culture. So im going to steal that word from you
Don't believe anything they say, okay? I promise I wouldn't do that
Well my experience in clinical settings is limited. I mostly do therapy for mood disorders and such, plus traumatic incident interventions (but NOT TISD). So you may well be right.
But as a theoretical exercise: how would we know...?
I suppose if we put them on conventional anti-psychotics and they didn't help that might be a pointer to the regular biological causes not being present.
I suppose one could search for incidences of genuine empathy. Don't ask them, obviously, ask the people who know them whether the anon every showed kindness or generosity in a circumstance where they did not directly benefit from it.
I had a bunch of questions I was going to ask but then it occurred to me that if you are seeing that anon in a professional capacity you wouldn't be able to answer.
Whatever you say.
Anti-psychotics idea is a pretty good one. They're also "loophole" type interviews that can determine lack of empathy.
I already said you're welcome anon.
To be honest if you do that right you could probably take it all the way to PhD.
Throw in how society has us repress everything, add the anonymity and impermanence of the site etc making the catharsis possible. Add in a dash of how society is changing more rapidly now than ever before and people who feel left out gravitate to this site to express themselves in a free way, mention the irony of /b/ also being a space where people who are excluded by a lack of acceptance by society also find a home here (think transpeople, furries, MSM, etc)
Don't forget to mention how /b/ is utterly unique in human history because everyone is just 'anon'. No prestige, no class, no power, no social gatekeepers. Hell, even secret societies have a pecking order. But /b/ doesn't. It's an almost completely flat society which facilitates the free expression.
If you do take it to PhD and get published I'll probably read about it. I'll contact you so that you can reference me.
Anon, A. (2016). Personal Communication. Unpublished.
And if you're not smart enough to understand all that stuff I just said then I can offer nothing but my condolences, because that shit is solid gold.
I know because that was going to be the topic of my PhD, but I chose a different topic instead.
Aha, good catch.
Do you have any thoughts about whether sexual arousal weakens empathy or higher cognitive functioning?
A lot of anons talk about masturbating to fetish porn and then feeling disgusted after orgasm.
Other psychologist here.
No one knows where sexual fetishes come from. There are theories but we are nowhere near proving any of them.
Every fetish from furries to paedophiles is pretty much a mystery.
g/f has shit libido i dont, never wants to have sex.
She constantly says its the best sex she has had, but doesn't have a high sex drive?
I find that im starting to resent her because of it.
Should i break up with her?
I disagree, there's pretty solid theories on a lot of fetishes like how pedophiles are usually a product of their own past experiences. As for furries, is it more of a proxy to distance themselves from their physical selves? 99% of furries are not attractive, not physically fit, and usually socially retarded.
Hate to say it anon but it's possible the sex isn't doing it for her.
Ask her what else she wants to do in the bedroom. If she has some fetish you can indulge it could make the sex more appealing to her.
And always do a lot of foreplay. Kissing, holding, caressing etc. Women take longer to warm up than men, on average. So take your time.
*Prove you're not guilty of what you're being accused.*
Well most pedos were not abused. They do represent a higher percentage than the normal population but it's certainly not causal.
A lot of paedophiles were not abused themselves. And MOST survivors of abuse do not become abusers themselves.
And as far as I'm aware there is no evidence to support your claims about the causes of fur fetishism, and lots of evidence that contradicts it.
So she is institutionalised then. Probably for the best.
And she displays love? That suggests empathy, which is good to hear.
I assume she's relatively young, late teens to late 20s perhaps, so there should be time to promote change.
Dream analysis doesn't work. Talking about your dreams can be very effective in therapy because it starts a conversation that can lead to other things.
But for the most part dreams don't actually 'mean' anything.
Wait, she posted the photos here, or...?
Psychoanalysis can work, though. Dreams are extremely untrustworthy though.
*Not since i've arrived here, she might have done that in the past but i'm totally uncertain about that.*
Because I've heard the stories from close friends.
>So she is institutionalized then. Probably for the best.
Not yet because she haven't been caught.
>And she displays love?
Not that I can recall, but she can pretend to be in love to fool her victims.
>That suggests empathy, which is good to hear.
All another part of her masked personally. She's high school and will not seek treatment because she thinks there is nothing wrong with her.
In an e-mail to another person, he quickly deleted the photographs and erased her from his life.
some help here pls
i have so much fear to failure, the fear sometimes dont let me wake up in morning to do productive things( go to university, go to the doctor), sometimes i win sometimes the fear win (when this happen i feel like "fuck everything i dont need to do nothing) and when this happen i feel so bad later when i wake up.
pd: this only happen when are things that are worth to myself, if some friend call me 3:00am to help him in anything, i will go without a doubt.
Oh I see. Well, even if she doesn't think there is anything wrong she may still want help gaining control so as not to be caught.
It's a self-interested motivation.
And helping her with that might be good.
Why is weed literally the cure for everything?
It isn't. In general it doesn't have many harmful effects but the more you use it, and the longer you use it, the more likely it is to increase the symptoms of depression and psychosis, not improve them.
It should still be legalised. I'm just saying.
What made you decide to stay and decide to become on the path to becoming a living meme?
Also, what is your opinion about the recent end to the hugbox-y sentimentality on the internet, especially on some chatboards?
I was diagnosed as depressed and suicidal at 11, currently working in a kitchen. I spent ~60 hours a week at work, hating life, then come home at hate my life more, I feel hopeless at my career and pretty much everything I do, I never finished school so uni is off the table, and yeah.
I no longer look forward, nor fear anything. The apathy is pretty much total.. Haven't been this far down the rabbit hole in a while. Might be buying a new car soon. I care as little about that as I do about the fact I got yelled at today.
Hell, I've even started taking things out by punching things. Coincidentally the work fridges are dinted like fuck, my knuckle is bruised, and a few benches have minor dints.
So yeah. No questions, unless you can sort my shit out.
*That was a test to see if you were paying attemption, congrats son you passed it. By the way, why do you have her archive?Did she gave that to you?*
Sounds like some pretty serious depression, Anon. You should get it checked. Hurting things or yourself won't help the matter, you need some other form of catharsis, even if it's yelling.
They're some of the most effective drugs known to therapists, so no.
Yeah. I've been depressed, as I said, for like.. almost 9 years. Since diagnosis anyway.
But hey, I've never cut myself (well, intentionally.). So yeah. I just bruise my knuckle. No nasty scars, just minor bruising.
Do you take any medication, Anon? And it's good you don't mutilate yourself, but any violent behavior has a strong correlation with on going depression. If you have to, try punching pillows.
I'd look weird bringing pillows to work. Surely you're aware of the stresses of working in a commercial kitchen, and how self destructive it is for a normal person.. for one like me, eh.
Used to take prozac for ~3 months. Given I had side effects ongoing for another 8 or so, I won't be trying that again.
Yes, of course. Restaurant workers were rated to go through more stress than doctors. They're other medicines available, besides prozac.
My son of 4 years has developed some kind of psychotic episodes where he will take a steak knife out of a kitchen drawer and stab his teddy bear in the face chanting "Hurt me, hurt me! It feels so good when you hurt me!" We've tried to talk to him about it, but he just clams up, or gets angry. I'm not sure what to think about this, but it can't go on. What should I do?
Cognitive therapy ALONG with medicines yields the best results. Drug dependency is dangerous, but depression without drugs can lead to even more danger.
Then try asking your therapist for some cognitive therapies, at least. You have the power to get through this, I know you do.
I have ADHD. There are drug tests in my school, and to medicate legally I need signature of parents. Both say it's shit so no. I've been self medicating with Piracetam (3500mg every day on 3 doses) but it's not powerful enough. What should I do?
Ps; nootropics don't show up on drug test
Hah, I haven't seen a psychologist for 2 years, and a psychiatrist for 3. I tried to go back 9 months back, but couldn't get the same one. 13 psychs to find a decent one.. Cbf with #14.
Do not self-medicate. Try seeking medical help.
You'll have to stick with one for a while to see if they're decent, anon.
I don't feel anything, i don't have any enjoyment from anything just sadness.
Because you hate sharing personal feelings with other people and life a mostly shut-in lifestyle.
Either that or you're done kind of veteran can't destroyer who's bored of vanilla.
