Ask a p-psychologist anything!
I'm h-here for you, Anonymous! Don't be s-shy!
...is this seriously a psychology question?
You don't like kids, so you don't want to have kids.
Where is the issue?
I could try to deconstruct your past, your home life, or try to provide some sort of explanation, but without any context besides this question, how in the world could I possibly answer it?
Hahahha you think psychologists make money? I became a programmer just to pay the bills; thank god for my double major.
Tell me more Anonymous *hugs tightly* How do you feel besides merely sad?
20 yr old straight male, not sure where wanna live in the west. Terrified of the institution of marriage, but would really like getting married if my legal rights were better. Is that a reasonable fear?
This thread again...
*Do you know the exact name of the medicines that the dog killer was taking?*
Wait wait wait. Back up. What? What legal rights are infringed somehow? How does marriage in any way relate to that?
This seems paranoid as hell. Explain more please.
I'm feeling the best I've ever felt in my life, this has coincided with significant lifestyle changes and also starting anti depressant medication 9 months ago.
I don't want to be on the drugs for the rest of my life but I don't want to go back to how I was....
They were antipsychotics. Beyond that, I'd have information in my chart, but that is privileged information.
...Why are you so obsessive about this?
Problem? I run them twice a day.
So what you are saying is, the life style changes and antidepressants worked?
Where is the problem again?
You have a stuttering problem, and you're always hanging out on /b/. I don't think I have much confidence in your abilities.
I think I'll ask these guys instead...
*Curiosity is one of my many flaws.*
>bullied to the verge of suicide as a kid
>Dad left for another woman when i was just a kid, my brother took care of the famiy @ 16, dad comes back a few months later
>had a couple of stable relationships but never felt loved just as company or to forgeth about somebody else.
>i have lots of casual friends but rarely meet people with whom i can respect, most of the people i know are stupid as fuck and easy to manipulate.
ask away if i missed anything
Good evening, Alice. How was your day? I sincerely hope it was better than mine!
i love seeing these threads every day. keep it up anon
Hey, whatever floats your boat.
I program for the money; trust me, it makes far more.
What happened in yours?
It sounds like abandonment and responsibility issues to me; you don't want to be responsible for something.
I don't have a dick.
Are you diagnosed? If so, then yes.
Are you experiencing rapid mood swings and suicidal thoughts? If so, then yes.
Tell me more.
Drop the porn cold turkey for a month or three.
I don't want to be on anti depressants for the rest of my life.
Bitch, you drop that muther fucking tone with me or I'll be slapping yo hoe ass down to size.
You feel me?
No joking aside though, I really don't wanna be reliant on drugs for life, but don't want to risk going back to how I was
I have hundreds of friends and many that are generally considered very close. I have amazing parents but I feel I have let everyone down by feeling depressed so I hide it. sound generic but there you go. Also I am pretty handsome and have had many opportunities to lose my virginity, some so blatant it could be described as on a silver platter yet i am so fridged i always turn it down using morals or complex excuses to explain it instead of my own basic insecurities
*I suppose i'm not allowed to see those informations, am i correct?*
I'm a 30 year old man with a great life.
I have an amazing job, 2 cars, some pets and a beautiful wife, but I dread the thought of having children. This is becoming a problem with my wife, because she wants to have at least 2 children.
I don't see the benefit or meaning of having them, and sometimes I wonder if there's something wrong with me. Specially since pretty much everyone I know has or is planning on having a child soon.
Is there something wrong with me?
Or is this something common with men my age?
What if you were not just Alice, and then you were Alice in Wonderland? But then what if you fell down the rabbits hole and at the same time the universe got hit by a bolt of fire lightning and every particle in the universe turned inside out so Wonderland was inside of Alice?
I know, it's just hypothetical, the 'you' extends to anyone, but fine.
What if you were on the top of a really big staircase and someone said that your feet were soft and cute and you became so flattered that you just passed out and fell off the staircase?
Okay. Good thing antidepressants aren't a permanent medication then.
Also, why? You are reliant on food, oxygen, water, and pretty much everything you put into your body has a psychoactive effect.
You are already reliant on drugs; you just call them different things.
That's odd, it's pretty much impossible for anyone to have more than 150-300 friends, due to simple neurology. Are you sure you have "hundreds" of friends?
Patient confidentiality. Also, you are kinda creepy.
Maybe you just don't want children? I don't either.
Yes. Do so right now.
I'd probably get seriously injured; I'm quite fragile.
>have a lot of money
>I like a woman
>she likes me back
>20 years pass
>joint bank account cause easier
>she gets a good lawyer behind my back
>she files a divorce because of sexual dissatisfaction
>half shit goes poof
Now this scenario never happened. some women never used that tactic. That's somehow considered better than a cheating whore like the two aren't two different brands of poison.
Even the numbers aren't in my favour, since I'm more likely to commit suicide after a divorce if I don't even lose custody of my children on the premise that I work too hard and I'm only good as an ATM, cause shit, I believed that showering my wife whom I love with money and not saying no to any of her requests was what she really wants. Need I go on?
Where do you stand on the idea that people wanting to switch their natural gender is a mental disorder? I know it's popular right now, but it seems like some pretty highly regarded mental health professionals are switching to the mental disorder side of things. The big article at Johns Hopkins comes to mind, but there are others. Thoughts or comments?
not OP but most likely you keep hoping that every woman you meet will be "the one", which wont happend until you better off your relationship with yourself, you have to complete your life, not another person, meeting someone special is complementary to life no cruicial, also until you understand that its not possible to have everything & everyone we want like an adult you wont ever come to terms with yourself and never feel happy or loved
hey psycho-senpai. good to see you again
thanks for listening to me yesterday, it helps me let out some steam
I've got to go back to the dentist twice a week for the next few weeks/months. It is going to fucking suck. Sucks worse because they don't give out medicine like they used to.
they did though. They asked if I do it for the money. I don't; I program for the money.
You don't seem to understand how the law works nor how marriage works. Please consult a lawyer to actually learn these things.
It's been pretty conclusively proven it's evolutionarily conserved, and therefore is just a natural variation.
Wow. You must have fucked up teeth!
I can sympathize!
>I'd probably get seriously injured; I'm quite fragile.
OK. What if you were in space and a tentacle popped out of the moon and slapped you, but it was a quantum tentacle so it gave you the powers of super strength, super speed, cold vision, super durability, teleportation, hyper-cuteness?
Okay, i study psychology but i dont know a solution...
I am dating a girl and she wants to be my girlfriend. I like fisting and such kind of stuff. She knows it but says that she doesnt want to try it. I dont want to take her if i could not live out my sexual preferences. How can i make her trying - or better - liking it?
*Fine, have a nice evening, we'll meet again when i'll have more questions.*
You don't. You respect peoples boundaries.
I responded to the part I chose to respond to <4
Yeah, but if you don't do that, bad things happen. That's negative feedback, not positive; it's you being passive, not active.
You have paranoid delusions; seek therapy.
I am pretty disconnected from reality and view things from a simple organised almost mechanical perspective and find it easy to change personality at the drop of a hat to suit whomever I meet usually depending on how I read them so I am sure i could easily have over 150 friends i see atleast once a month, most of them far more frequently (I am a college student doing one less subject than usual and have loads of free time)
have you seen this movie?
what are your thoughts on the main character as a psychiatrist?
