Ask a psychologist anything.
I'm h-here for you, Anonymous!
Good morning, Alice! Did you sleep better last night?
N-no one needs any help t-today? I must be d-doing a good job...
Ah hello Sanae. I slept better, yes. I don't feel that tired now at all!
Do you think people on /b/ just lose their mental illnesses after one thread?
I am a very anxious, nervous person and that causes me to be defensive. How can I stop being fucking defensive literally all the time
For how long do you plan to keep this up?
Mindfulness! Keep in mind your mood at all times, and wait a second before you speak to give yourself time to analyze your mood.
Are you being unnecessarily defensive? Then swallow your words. All there is to it.
Until 4chan dies. I give it another year or two.
My new gf wascheated on raped and what not and she has serious trust issue's how can I make her trust me ?
When we fight she goes bananas and act like I'm going to dump her because she feels insecure and damaged even when I tell her I love her
Has she been to therapy?
My current career is in programming, for the exact reason that psychology pays almost nothing.
What about you?
You can't stutter a vowel, Anonymous.
We share the same hope but not for the same reason.
I will do the same, it's needless to say that i am quite enjoying this threads.
Do you hate me, and if so, why?
I get pretty upset about things that happen outside of real life
Like i play a game with some friends but honestly one of em who was pretty close with me found someone they're better friends with now i guess
Honestly it does get to a point of bothering me and i do end up being unable to have a clear mind
It's kind of an issue when you have things to do and have something bugging you non stop
i feel left out if anything.
What's it like being a psychologist? I was thinking of changing my major to physiology. I noticed I can read people really easily, so I thought it would be cool to see what psychology has to offer.
Well, i love making conversations under those threads, it's literally filled with kind people.
I'm depressed and have general anxiety, I also have very unstable mood swings resulting in random intense anger and such. I also hear music okay randomly around me like there is a person singing in my room, not that bad though, usually happens when I'm reading. I also hear a really fucking annoying fuzz like sound whenever I go to sleep. And lastly I experience a lot of paranoia but I don't see things
You're not a psychologist, You're not a psychologist, You're not a psychologist, You're not a psychologist, You're not a psychologist, You're not a psychologist, You're not a psychologist, You're not a psychologist, You're not a psychologist, You're not a psychologist, You're not a psychologist, You're not a psychologist, You're not a psychologist, You're not a psychologist, You're not a psychologist, You're not a psychologist, You're not a psychologist, You're not a psychologist, You're not a psychologist, You're not a psychologist,
I used to be VERY calm and patient, but when I started working I just became anxious and I get bored very quickly, I used to play videogames 12 hours a day, but now I cant play more than 4 before getting bored...
You say you're here for me, I don't believe you! I have serious issues with trust. And I say issues but really they help me, I never let mu guard down for anyone not even family. So I don't get burned ever.
Recently I've decided maybe it's time to get over it. But i can't afford therapy.
How do I get over my trust "Issues"?
Any words for someone who gets stressed a lot from schoolwork?
I think a good majority of the population is near mentally retarded. I find that some people are unable to entertain concepts (or even consider them) if they already disagree with it, and they hold logically flawed and contradictory concepts as true, and usually can't be reasoned with.
An example would be SJWs that say that you can't be reverse racist ---- which is fucking dumb as shit for a number of reasons --- 1) the word reverse racist is made up by them to fit their conclusions 2) saying that someone is immune from being racist based solely on skin color is mind blowing.
I can't tell if it is me, or if it is the vast public that is fucking up.
ps. I don't think I am all that 'smart', but damn, do I think a lot of people out there are pretty well fucked as it pertains to thinking rationally and using even simple logic.
It pays dirt and you are forced to let a lot of people suffer for little to no reason.
I recommend becoming a social worker; much more useful.
Hm. Have you been to a therapist? Sounds like you have some issues to work out; do you have anyone close to talk to?
It's more than that.
You wait 70 years to die in bed with all your loved ones around you and possibly a dog on your lap.
It's not hard, just tedious.
Excellent! I would keep on that path and encourage her to talk to that person whenever she acts out.
1. It isn't, we have neurology and behaviourism now.
2. Chemistry used to be alchemy; do you call it bullshit too? With the advent of neurology and some other subfields, psychology is a true science. Just took us a while to get there.
Seek medical attention. You may have schizo-affective disorder.
Hm. What changed in your life? Besides getting older of course.
*hugs tightly* It's okay Anonymous,, it's okay...I'm sorry, I'm so so sorry, but the only way to get over trust issues is....to trust. To open yourself up to someone, to let them in, to let them close enough to stab you in the heart.
God I know how hard that is; the amount of knives in me probably numbers in the upper dozens. But you still have to try. Humans are social creatures....without people to depend on, we wither away.
Open up yourself Anonymous. Let your guard down. Lest you find yourself trapped behind it. If not to me, then to a therapist or doctor.
Now I am sure you have no formal education whatsoever. The basics of speech impediments would have shown up in any curriculum eventually. "Treating" this is like easy money.
Read some of the boring shit too, before you play pretending on the Internet,
Hello. Been lurking in your threads for a while. Finally feel like contributing.
I'm a 19-, soon to be 20-, year-old man and i'm planning on starting a relationship with a 16-year-old girl.
I´m a bit confused about our age difference. My little sister is 17, and it just feels weird for the future waifumaterial girl to be younger than her.
Do you think I'm fucked up? Been professionally diagnosed with anxiety and psychotic deppression, but i dont think those have anything to do with this.
And for the record, even sex, what i do not plan on having until she's 18, is allowed in my country when both are younger than 18, or older than 16. So our match 16 + 18 year old, would be allowed because we're both older than 16.
I think you don't know how "government handouts" work.
I come here before work and after.
Hm. Seek a councilor at school; they can help you better than I can. The best advice I can give you is to manage your time wisely; make a schedule and stick to it, even if it is a bit annoying and boring.
They aren't; due to the Flynn effect, we're actually getting smarter each generation:
When I was a kid, I used to hear whispers and see dark shadowmen in the corners of my eyes but when I looked they werent there, now I just get some odd noises occurring rarely, is there anything wrong with me?
Remember me? I came to doctor what you said last time and I was very scared to said it all the pains is it good?
good catch, i was just joking but i guess you have your studies down.
o pee is a pretty cool anon
I've been lurking your threads psychologist-anon for a quite while now and i'd like to say one thing. You're good person and i envy you of that anon.
Yeah, the shadow people have choosen you as their ambassador to our society.
I attracted to this girl, she's very pretty and has lots of friends, I have a few friends as well, but you see, I want to compliment her and take her on a date sometime, but I get nervous when I want to ask her or compliment her, she drops lots of hints and I'm going out with her in a group in a week, what would you recommend to stop being so nervous around her and perhaps take her somewhere
Again, a vowel sound involves the full opening the vocal tract; you can't stutter it. You can do a lot of other things with it, but not stutter it.
But you aren't younger than 18. You are 19. So wouldn't it be disallowed?
Yeees. Don't drink that early. Also possibly seek help for your alcoholism.
*salutes* I hope you learn something worthwhile like C++ or Haskell!
Disproven easily by mathematics; math exists independent of the self, and needs no mind to exist, merely the axioms needed to instantiate the theory.
Look up philosophy of math; it's discovered, not invented.
Are you diagnosed as depressive?
As long as it isn't too often or disturbing your life, auditory hallucinations are relatively common and benign.
Yes, I do! What happened?
I'm not a good person. I'm a bad person who does good things.
Nah never been to a therapist
Not on meds either,though my mother is
I dunno might have underlying mental issues
Or i'm just overly sensitive..it's just that i've been fairly close with the guy for a while so it's quite a shock to me
And no i don't really have anyone to talk about it with
Not that i'd want to anyways embarrasing to say atleast.
you better not be in canada teaching psycology and having an exam today at 11am, because if your name is yumi dats pretty awks yo.
I have a psych exam today maybye yer my classm8
What kind of psychologist ignores someone who's genuinely curious about themselves? You're a sham. You do this for attention. Only answering the easy questions with half-assed responses, telling ones who are out of your understanding to "get help", and outright ignoring the truly difficult to handle people. Bravo.
It's just not that simple. I had a very difficult up bringing. My mother left my father but i was already a teen by then. We ran away in the car just me her and the dog one night. We lived with my grandmother but she died so now we're in a shitty flat.
I know where the issues come from. I know I'm not a stable person. But it's hard to fix them, I've tried. But I can't open up. Not to anybody. My mother and uncle and new sister are all I have to live for anymore, now imagine my feeling of not being able to trust even them.
If I could let mu guard down and just trust people my problems would be gone. There has to be some other way?
I just want to be able to have friends and love my family like a normal person. But instead I lock myself away on my computer.
Just do it Anonymous! You are a swell guy, she wants you, you want her, just man up and speak your mind! Tell her you like her!
I'm cheering you on, so come on! Just take a chance!
Same thing here, especially as a kid.
Not OP, but can you be more specific?
For me, it would usually happen if I was ever laying down looking at something for a mildly lengthy time (30 sec or so). It is actually a known phenomenon, and you can actually recreate it by dimming the lights and staring into a mirror... it has something to do with stimulus and lack there of, of looking at something so much the brain kind of wigs out.
pretty much this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ElNm5RXlND4
Actually, whole parts of 'black magic' are based off of this very real illusion and is the basis behind 'summoning spirits' using magic 'seeing glass'.
I stoped playing so much videogame and started going to parties and playing soccer, but I dont want to be so anxious, I want to be like I was before, help me OP
And what makes you such a bad person?
I'm gonna go to war with a part of the US government because of how they treated me. Not gonna kill anyone. Mostly like harassment. Not really asking for help. Just letting you know.
Okay thanks, schedule sounds like a really good idea
Right now. get out there. Live life! Life should be short and sweet! WHISKEY GOD HEROIN AND SMOKES! Live!
You have to show people you're not a beta fag! You're the fuckin man! Show life who's boss!
yer just too comfortable at what positiom you currently are in. Your not agraid, you just dont seek the discomfort for a change, maybe you feel you dont need to. Maybe ambition is what you are missing.
You really need someone you can talk, Anonymous. A really close friend or something.
I'm a programmer by profession.
It's my honor Anonymous.
I know it's not simple. It never is. It's still important Anonymous. But there's no way besides, little by little, bit by bit, trusting others and them trusting in you.
Trust must be returned for you to get over this issue....but that means you must trust in kind.
A therapist can help walk you through it and open you up, little by little. But that means you have to go, which means you have to trust.
Nothing can start from fear, but the only way to get over the fear is with trust.
Hm. Might be worth while to ask a doctor about beta blockers; they block anxiety reactions with little side effects. Then you can enter those situations and realize they aren't so bad, and taper off the beta blockers.
That's exposure therapy with medication, basically.
That's good! I could still definitely use a tiny cat nap tho
Broken records get thrown into the trash.
What can possibly go wrong? Worst case scenario she won't accept to be your bf.
You are welcome.
Alpha and beta are not meaningful descriptors for human interaction.
Also, don't do fucking heroin are you stupid.
Verified not real.
I'm an anon too, Anonymous
My partner for 35+ years probably has borderline. She was always insecure in her way but since 5-6 years ago she completely lost it e.g. unfair requests coming from her insecurity (whos this? whos that? Give me your phone I NEED to check it, Where were you?) continuous accusations of cheating (never such a thing occured), trying to set up all the people around me against me to try to prove her point of how 'evil' I am, bringing herself in potentially dangerous situations (I've seen her drive when she's emotional...., or she threatens to jump off a balcony). Her relationship with the kids is getting worse as well, although she says it's because I set them up against her.
I honoustly don't know what to do at this point. I'm sad and frustrated about it. We went to multiple psychologists (to show her that I'm not the one with problems, as the psychologist confirmed) but as soon as they mentioned anything that could be seen as 'her fault/responsibility' she dismisses them and continues her behaviour like before.
pic somewhat related
Yeah, when I was a kid I kept my action figures next to my bed, and going to bed or waking up, I would see them talking amongst themselves or would interact with each other. This happened about a dozen times before I threw them all away from being so fucking freaked out. Only later did I get to the bottom of what it was I was actually seeing.
That's the thing... I can't AFFORD therapy.. Like I said we're in the shittiest little flat. I'm just too much of a pussy to off myself. I threaten myself with it but know it won't happen. Suicide by cop is the best plan of attack I have so far. But it's just a dream.
I think I'd be happier if I didn't have to worry about my family. I'm tempted to run away and just be homeless.
Do you even bother responding him/her? If you dislike what others are saying just walk it off.
hi, I've been stalking for the last year and a half a med student that I used to attract me, hell I even know what her parents do and her population registry and stuff.
I don't even like her that anymore but I keep stalking her and that's what makes me stay after her, and I don't even know what to do anymore...
nigga its called stop being a nigga and find out yo self nigga, fuckin stop bein a playa boy and gi do what yo heart tells ya o find out yo self
Aint nobody got time fo yo nigga ass if yo bein such a tight ass
Hah, sounds like someone I use to know.
I mean, if someone refuses to seek treatment, the only real thing you can do is...leave. She's not going to change, because she thinks nothing is wrong. You can't change that; only she can.
And she clearly won't. So the only real option is....well, you know.
I'm sorry Anonymous, I'm so so sorry...but that's the facts.
There are MANY free clinics Anonymous. You just have to find one.
Alright, I need to go to work
See you all at 7-8PM tonight
what do you have to loose dude, honestly. you're gonna get the fuck or no fuck, that's it
You can only gain by staying alive. Keep going and life will show you her kind side.
thanks, this kind of gives me a confidence boost, I might just do something about it. I might actually feel loved because of you
That's true... If I'm worried about losing friendship because of rejection, then I don't deserve her to be a girlfriend, thanks anon
why do all me love pedo? tbh every man in the world loves the sight of a budding breast or a bubble butt or a cute happy face, it's just that they're too afraid and embarrassed of admitting this and they're fucking cowards
why do we all love this?
YOU BASTARD MADE ME LOOK REALLY STUPID DONT MAKE ME EMBARASS MYSELF YOU STUPID BUM FACE HORSE COCK WHINING BITCH
Ah shit, my bad. wrote that in a weird way.
It is allowed If both are either under 18 OR over 16.
So for example, if I, as a 19-yo, would have sex with a girl under 16, it would be a crime.
However, if i do it with a girl over 16, no problem.
Also if someone is 17, and has sex with a 15-yo it's okay cause they both are under 18.
If an 18-yo would have sex with an 15-yo it would be a crime because they both are neither over 16, nor under 18.
Basicly the main problem is not sex. Quite frankly i just ended an friends with benefits-relationship because I'd rather be wanking happy than fucking while im miserable.
I just feel weird, and i feel kinda dirty for wanting to date a girl this young.
Just another thing. I know it's very hard to confess her your feelings but be wary, it's always the wisest thing to do. I lost my chance with a girl cause i was scared like you are now, don't do my same mistake.
That sounds way less painful. I was using a steak knife and sawing into my wrist. Down the road, not across the street or something along those lines. I didn't get very deep, the meat was pretty rare
This isn't over yet. If you want some REAL advice ask away. I'm not here for you and life doesn't get better! you do.
Ask away. The "Doctor" is in
Yeah, well, my heart tells me to eat people. I would just like this alleged psychologist's opinion on what drives these urges. But three threads over the past couple weeks has proven this is too much to ask.
people who ask these questions are probably underage
go get older and come back and then ask the same question
I've come to accept that I'm the clown
I'm there to make others laugh
To ask how you're day is going
But nobody will ask how mine is
I'm strangely ok with this
if I can make someone else feel better
it makes me feel better
I don't want anyone to feel the way I do
i wouldn't wish this on my worst enemy
the empty feeling
the fact that at the end of the day i don't have someone to lay my head next to
I've had a rough life
I've watched to many people leave, die, change, turn on me
it hurts to have gone through so much betrayal
but that's how i know how to cheer them up
i can't cry
i can't show any faltering or weakness
because the second i show how i feel i no longer become the clown
i become just another person
wtf is wrong with me.
Hmm. Sounds to me like you have a serious problem with not following through. But it's good you didn't OD we're not done here yet. Satan and the rest of the gang in hell will have to wait.
Try robbing a store or eating some insects to show the world and the phony god of a prick who really can't be told what to do. Life throws you a curve ball you dodge it and lay a turd!
I was too nervous when my first time came there alone, he asked many questions and I give him some answers then he gave me some advice and pills for an instant. I hope this would be help. Thanks for suggestion alice1 (sorry for bad english , I hope you understand it)
Of nothing, i wish you the best of luck.
Gee i guess i do need to make some friends to talk bout my emotions with
Not like i'm exactly sociable person
I only get extroverted in my close circle of friends
And i don't want to bug them with games.
nigga you stuck on the oral stage in frueds psychosexual stages of development u in fixatio niggga. if you really want to physically eat people... that is...
I loose weight pretty fast. 10kg in two weeks isn't bad, I guess. The problem is that I'm a lazy piece of shit.
I know what I can do to loose weight but The motivation isn't there. Nothing can motivate me to do things.
dont be a man child then
AND GO EXCERSIZE YOUR JUST A FAT LAZY FUCK
What medications are you on? I have epilepsy but its under control, but when it was at its worst I know where you're coming from. Even looked into right to death laws and DNR orders in my state.100mg of lamictal in the morning and 100mg of topamax x2 daily and I haven't had one in years.
Live can truly suck balls with problems like this
I myself have progressive hearing loss and loud as fuck tinnitus. I can't really advice you anon, i really wish i could, but eitherway anon i wish you finding solution to your problems sometime soon
I say get a fucking life. Live a little, do something! Get on with it! Stop being a fuckin' fagget and grow a par. Be strong, leave home. Be homeless for a week to show you are the man. Suck a guy off for two dollars just to eat. Then taste FREEDOM!
o pee that pic is really sexually arousing are you trying to turn me on?
Now now. Dealers can be hard to come by. I'm seeing a problem with following through, you need to show you're a true god amongst men. You need to take the plunge and follow through, we can start small. Sharpe in the pooper.
no thats just pleasure maybe you're just into it
I-i kind of like being doninated too, eeeeek
With every relationship and sometimes friendship I find myself becoming the needy one that always is trying to make plans while the other is putting no effort sometimes even straight ignoring me How can I stop being the pathetic one in my current and future relationships
You don't HAVE to. Deep down YOU WANT TO! You have to just go sharpie up pooper balls to the wall!
You're the fuckin' ALPHA of a generation, you need to continue telling yourself that. And as long as you're drunk you're on the right track in life.
renge, sakamoto, professor and karen out
time to get ready for my exam
She had the zodiacal sign of the bitch right?
Hello, I mostly can accomplish my goals but I am lazy as fuck. I also am rarely satisfied about stuff, and I constantly feel exhausted. Was depressed a few months ago but sorted it out and I no longer feel that crushing void. But it still feels like something is missing. And I rarely have suicidal ideations. And sometimes I just can't control how I act around people.
I sometimes feel depressed for no reason, and recently have been getting stressed over basically nothing which causes me to fuck up and get stressed over actual problems I've caused.
Most of the time I'm fine.
Is this normal, or am I just a bitch mr psych?
