A client told me he visits this site. I've browsed for a few hours and I'd like to help. Ask away :)
They are not scientifically valid. Freudian psychoanalysis is not valid either. Freud's motivation for his work was hatred of Christian Europe...
When he went to America to give lectures, he told a colleague "they don't even know, we are bringing them the plague"
if i took spironolactone and estradiol i would kinda look OP's picture
give me at least one reason not to do it
I already tell the same sob story to everybody, including my actual therapist.
>Wahhh! My mommy abused me!
>I need drugs to get rid of all this pain! Wahhhh!
Then they say, "Wow, you are a real fighter, anon, you are so brave!"
You can't help us. You can try to understand our pain though.
Psychologist as in PsyD., or Psychologist as in MA in CBT?
If the first, What country are you in? How competitive is it applying for the PsyD? How did you get your clinical experience?
If the second, You're not a psychologist.
OP, Mrs.psychologist, i presume. since no faggot here is going to get a male psychologist. You have entered the den of despair. Be warned, you might see some fucked up shit.
what boards did your client say he browsed? And why are you posting this so early?
lets get psychological
ly impairedim an anonymous, ask me anything.
I give this to tall my clients. It does not help with serious conditions but it helps with learned harmful thought processes. I advise you to print it out and read it every day
It's an echo chamber of negativity mostly where the same ideas are repeated endlessly and any dissent is dismissed with ad hominem attacks.
why in the fuck would a sad anon make a thread asking about what this place is like when he damn well already knows what its about?! it would only serve as a reminder that this ride never ends.
I do literally all of these things to a pretty extreme degree on a daily basis. I'm aware I'm doing them to an extent but in the moment I can't help but slip back into unhelpful thought patterns. It's like I panic and go back to default.
>what boards did your client say he browsed? And why are you posting this so early?
He said the robots board. I thought it was a forum on building robots but I googled it to find out. It's just before 1am here.
I have a severe inferiority complex/ social anxiety/ depression due to being raised by a mentally ill single mother with 3 kids on borderline poverty and then going to school with wealthy kids and being teased about being poor.
How do I overcome this? I consider myself worthless.
What would you recommend to someone that felt like they can never relate people and is suffering from depression? I use to be satisfied with being mostly alone and watching movies, playing games, drawing, reading books, and listening to music... but I usually don't feel anything anymore. I don't have anything I actually enjoy anymore. It was the only way I made friends in past and now I don't have anything to talk about except depressing/existential subjects.
i do all of this and i can tell it's ruining my parents lives
sometimes i catch myself but i always default to these patterns of thinking
i'm the biggest loser i know wtf should i do
I also retell condensed story
>suppressed abuse + mixing alcohol with medication = psychotic breakdown
warning others not to get locked up in psychiatric hospitals due to neglect and abuse better dead than experience that.
You're not worthless. You're the example they use to encourage middleclass wageslaves to waste their lives working for Mr. Shekelstein so they don't end up like you. It's all part of the intricate economic system of the modern age.
he called it "the robots board". how old is your client? he sounds like a major faggot. im gonna guess hes 16, right?
also you realize that when you google "robots board" /r9k/ doesnt show up, right?
everybody go home. dis a troll thread
>that's a big one, i copypasted from another thread. Any ideas?
Im tired of life
I suffer from hyperhydrosis which makes me sweat like a dog, even when its cold
I sweat trough my clothes everyday, even in winter
after day at uni im dehydrated and tired af
not to mention that wearing wet clothes make me want to kill myself the whole time until i get home and change
i stay home whenever i can so i can get shower and change clothes anytime
i can't focus, i can't study, i can't work, i can't socialise
i can't live
drinking is literally all i got, makes me forget for a while
it has been like that for about 8 years now
even got a surgery for this which took all my savings, but it didnt help and now my left hand is partially paralyzed
i can't play guitar anymore
im 23 and tired of life already
i just want to lay down and die
>having sufficient scientific rigor
>Not accepting the existenial nature of the human nature that can only be analyized phenomenologically
>Not realizing living and understanding human nature from a literal perspective like jung is far superior than any sort of psychology that claims to be analytical.
Stay ignorant of fruedian and lacanian psychoanalytic theory.
That quote is out of context.
Fuck off op. Go back to your internship.
>I am not allowed to have a facebook due to the legal implications either.
What. I work in a similar profession and unless the laws are a lot more retarded over the ditch, that's a load of shit. Everyone just uses privacy settings and, you know, doesn't add clients/patients.
I've never experienced this 'sad frog culture' as my client calls it. He is such a sweet young man and I really want to help him but I can't if I don't understand him. I don't research every client because I don't need to research their background as much
Not sending you to CBT? That's weird. SSRI's and CBT is usually the first line of attack.
CBT is essential. I posted a helpful chart earlier that could help you with those pre-activity thoughts
the sad irony about this thread is that it is in fact a thread that has been posted.
Its okay, OP...we're gonna make it through to the light eventually. try to get some sleep.
>constantly somewhat stressed
It's not really that painful but since my life is boring and nothing happens, it's the worst I've ever felt. Of course other people can have it way worse, but knowing that doesn't change shit. It's just that existing for the point of existing is a nuisance. And there aren't really things I enjoy. Except drugs and anime. But I can't base my life on those 2 things.
I thought I'd score well on something like this but i often do jump to conclusions. I'm also very often correct in the conclusions I make when I cna verify. But that doesn't really help my case because most of the conclusions I make are cautious, which leads me into situations where I couldn't verify if it was correct or not.
you came to learn about our sadfrog culture
Do you two actually care that much? In my experience with psychologists (7 different) they hardly remember what was said last time. They do take notes and that helps them but most of our conversations is me clarifying things once again.
Perhaps it's just that I find the details more important than others and they normally don't take note in that detail.
Hi everyone. I'm sorry I didn't expect there to be so many questions so I can't answer them all and many need a lot more time to handle correctly. I apologize and will try to keep up. Thanks :)
>unhelpful thinking styles
More like unhelpful leaflet.
I hate how the modern age encourages people to pass the blame and make it seem like people are incapable of ever being at fault for their own lives. All of those thinking styles are helpful at certain times and should be considered. If simply thinking about your situation in life makes you feel like shit, then maybe there's something wrong with the way you're living, not your thought process. I certainly agree that being pessimistic all the time is not helpful to improving your situation, but it's a necessary evil just like physical pain showing you that there's something wrong with your body. This modern way of life is killing us from the inside out and we're all told to keep it out of sight and out of mind so we don't feel bad about it; I can't believe so many people listen to such bullshit.
Its worse than that. By not being 'anon' you forfeit any right to not get get constant abuse thrown at you. Honestly its probably not going to go very well.
Besides that if its true I applaud you. If this is some cutting edge meme good luck with it also
hmmmm yes it does happen. I see 25+ clients a week so my memory does fail sometimes. Some psychologists are people that studied it to figure themselves out and then just stuck with it because they had the degree.
My interest was in unemployed people. So I see a lot of young men that stay at home on the internet and xbox but are still desperate to achieve in the outside world
>gf and I break up
>my best female friends breaks up with her bf the same week
>we console each other
>I start to fall in love with her and tell her
>she says "oh anon we may end up together or not I'm not sure. I just need a break without men after this 5 year realationship"
>oh well I give her a break
>after two weeks I give her flowers and we talk
>"oh Anon I have a new boyfriend! crazy huh?! I did't plan this but oh well"
Fuck that cunt 4 weeks after a 5 year relation she's fucking someone else already meanwhile I'll stay alone for god knows how long... I had my heart broken twice this year. the wortst part is how hypocritical she was: 1st lie
>yeah um we're together since 5 years and I will never leave him
>I need a break and won't have a bf soon again
I never believed redpillers and MGTOWs but that bitch is a textbook liar. and how come girls find new boys that fast? also a part of me still hopes that one time she might leave her new bf again and give me a chance. I hate me foe this, deep down I know it will never happen but I can't control my false hopes. how can I suppress my hopes? I don't want to stay in her orbit
Get out normie!!!
It's not about being cynical. It's about taking the right paths in life, which typically aren't the easy ones that make you feel good.
Never heard of it and the Googling it only brought up theories about space itself. What's it entail?
Real black man here. Heard bout yall from my barber. AMA.
Yeah I can't really see what this can teach you other than "What rejects are like when they are anonymous"
Anyway do you have a focus that you look at? My psych is a mindfulness guy
Soon to be your president, Donald here. My interns told me about a place filled with unemployed bums. Thought I'd come and get a laugh. AMA
Another client sent me this a few months ago. It is very interesting and I've read about it before with mice studies, but this article is more 'real'.
We shouldn't live in such large groups in cities. The stress on our neurological pathways is too much
Is Jeb going to kill himself?
Will you grieve?
Can you explain pic related?
Wtf was going on here?
Why was Sir Oswald Mosley so sexy? I just want him to powerfuck my boypussy with animalistic fervor, you know?
I browsed other forums on 4chan as well. It is a culture I am not really familiar with, so it's interesting for a friday night.
The Nazi's forum is surprisingly intellectual if you can get past all the racism.
I've got some young clients to that love Hitler but that will have to wait for another night....
Ha, even without reading that study, it isn't hard to tell that being overcrowded is a bad thing. Just look at any large city, ever.
Thanks for sharing that article, though. I'll give it a read.
>The Nazi's forum is surprisingly intellectual if you can get past all the racism.
That's fairly low standard. They're intellectual compared to what you usually hear from racists.
The Flight/Freeze type is the least relational and most schizoid hybrid. This type avoids his feelings and potential relationship retraumatization with an obsessive-compulsive/ dissociative "two-step" that severely narrows his existence. The flight/freeze cul-de-sac is more common among men, especially those traumatized for being vulnerable in childhood, and those who subsequently learned to seek safety in isolation or "intimacy-lite" relationships. Many non-alpha type males gravitate to the combination of flight and freeze defensiveness stereotypical of the information technology nerd - the computer addict who workaholically focuses for long periods of time and then drifts off dissociatively into computer games. Many sex addicts also combine flight and freeze in a compulsive pursuit of a sexual pseudo-intimacy. When in flight mode, they obsessively scheme to "get" sex and/or compulsively pursue and/or engage in it; when in freeze mode, they drift off into a right brain sexual fantasy world that is often fueled by an addictive use of pornography; and even during real time sexual interaction, they often engage more with their idealized fantasy partners than with their actual partner.
Normy is non-autistic person right?
I saw the nazi flags and though it would be "I hate these people, they stink", They do say this but many questions are answered with links to scientific studies.
They're bias in their selection and if you were to put up arguments against what they're saying they will just dismiss it (in my experience).
They're bigoted individuals who have set their minds on things and are just trying to find ways to convince others.
People who aren't socially inept. Non-normies are people with social phobias, autism or just about anything that has a significant impact on social life.
You don't suppress shit. You got it all wrong. You need to process your emotions, i.e. understand why you feel a certain way.
You don't "start to fall in love" with some hoe. You're putting pussy on a pedestal and hoping she'll respond. She never will. Realize this is a toxic way of thinking. You're only shooting yourself in the leg.
Being honest with yourself about your emotions will be painful, but in the long run it will be better for you. Good luck.
this image is helpful because it focuses on logical thinking for a happier life. but if you take logical thinking to its logical end, you will die, your brain will turn off, and everything you did or felt will be as if it never existed. so what is even the point in trying or doing anything. normies only function by delusion. once you've seen the void you can't turn back. if you haven't seen it you're not special or better than anyone, you're just lucky your genetic makeup/environmental factors haven't allowed you to see it yet
Without the abuse. Any proof you can give us of being who you claim. Careful not to show your name though. But yeah just write the time and date on a piece of paper and take a photo of it with proof. Then people will at least believe you
Do this >>26432870 or kindly fuck off you roleplaying faggot.
Hi, I didn't read the studies they linked but they were talking about how stupid it is that scientists deny differences in different ethnic groups.
This is a very big problem in psychology as it cannot be mentioned. However, all of the latest neuroscience research proves that different ethnic groups are extremely different and I notice this in my personality/IQ tests that I give everyday.
I hate the way they talk but what they are saying is true. The ethnic group differences part anyway
No logical thinking tends to lead to Moral relativism. Essentially your actions don't matter in the grand scheme of things so do things that you enjoy and will enjoy. If you enjoy crime you might go to jail and not enjoy that time in jail. That's why you don't do crime. If you enjoy rape and live in certain regions of the world there's no punishment, so that's a valid use of your time.
I don't like this idea because it encourages people to not consider empathy as much. Which I think is a big thing among humans.
It's true that when you see "the void" it's a lot harder to enjoy life because it feels less meaningful. But that doesn't mean it can't feel meaningful. What you must do is distract yourself, focus on goals that you think might make you happy. Realize when you're happy and see that as your goal. Like me personally i realized I felt a lot better after working out. So i started doing that, I enjoy that and that's fine regardless of how I will die and it will all have been for naught.
My degree is in a frame at my parents house. >>26432903
I'm not going to post any personal information online sorry.
I know people can fake on the internet but if someone is offering you help why does it matter if they are real or not. I"m not asking for your bank account.
I just wanted to learn more about this subculture for my client. It is a little bit overwhelming to help because there is so many questions but why would you attack someone that offered to help you
Dude he's probably a pastoral services guy. Works for the church as a social worker to the congregation. Who all live in rural famland.
He's obviously a christian which influences his beliefs on effective therapy.
>I didn't read the studies they linked but they were talking about how stupid it is that scientists deny differences in different ethnic groups.
That's fair. Generally the conversations don't end there. They're not just about understanding differences for the most part. It's just a motivation towards their racism. And I agree that it's inconceivable to believe in evolution without believing there's differences between groups of people. But you don't need studies for that. What you'd need studies for is considering if the differences are significant enough that they are actionable. Generally they tend to use it as a motivation to strip all moral obligation they have towards their fellow man. It's the easy way out if you want to be a motivated racist. They're simply not focused on a system that permits people to transcend their racial boundaries (if there are significant boundaries).
Time stamp isn't personal information.
>but if someone is offering you help why does it matter if they are real or not
Because I don't like lying roleplayers who aren't qualified to do shit.
>you attack someone that offered to help you
Because they're lying and have ulterior motives.
Fair enough but a timestamped business card would do and you really should use a trip for the time you're here. I forget how but someone will know
Its a part of that subculture. Just because people are screwed up doesn't mean that they're dumb. hence why there's so much about why certain patterns of thinking can be beneficial in the short term. Its like I said by not being anon you lose that shield until you become anon again
>But that doesn't mean it can't feel meaningful. What you must do is distract yourself
>it can feel meaningful as long as you try to ignore the fact that it isn't
Doesn't pertain to my post but I agree that humans are poorly adapted to modern society. We need to do things like working out to be optimal. If we were better adapted we could sit in the dark in front of computers and work all day without having health problems. We'd probably just poop out fat/sugar when we didn't need more of it.
Not sure what would be preferable concerning neurochemicals. The brain is a complex beast.
I only read a couple of pages so I don't know all of their theories but the IQ research and behavioural genetics is the elephant in the room for psychologists. New neuro psych research is coming out weekly that shows big differences in ethnic groups and I notice it every day in my IQ and Personality testing.
That's all I can comment on as I have only read that page for an hour or so
We had a conference a few months ago about internet privacy and it said 'never post photos online to web forums from your phone because of the exit data or something.
I'm not trying to hurt you, I haven't given you any bad advice
>it can feel meaningful as long as you try to ignore the fact that it isn't
Any particular problem with this statement? That's exactly what I'm pointing out is a good idea in that situation.
If you open a picture in paint. Copy the pixels to another paint program and save that then all exif data is gone. What's in the image is what's in the image at that point. Strange they didn't tell you something like that.
Yes. We need to learn to adapt to the modern society as it's not going away anytime soon. Being outdoors as much as possible and exercising are a start but there is many more problems. e.g. the stress it puts on your brain to encode so many human faces every day. We have not evolved for that.
4chan automatically removes exif data
Asking people to be willfully ignorant is a fools errand, their moral stances will just degenerate into whatever feels best because there's no need to excessively restrict behavior when they'll always know it's meaningless anyway.
Depends on the person, the problem and your recovery situation.
It does show the most promise though, just not for everyone or every condition. Just noticing what triggers you is a good start. When you think about going to the movies. Does your heart beat fast etc., then question why etc/.
Hi, I'm going to go soon anyway. It's pretty late here. If you read through this webpage I haven't tried to mislead hurt anyone so I don't see why a photo of a piece of paper is relevant. I understand that people can fake on the internet but you don't have to trust me if you don't want too. I'm not asking for anything from you
Betting its jewish people in general
Yes that's exactly what moral relativism is about. You're really getting this anon. I'm not saying it's advantageous for society or anything like that. What I propose you do is simply preferable to complete apathy if you're capable of feeling happy (and consciously enjoying that). In moral relativism the individuals experience is most important. I think most people couldn't feel good knowing they hurt a lot of people but I'm also not saying that it necessarily leads to bad things. Like my example with working out. The goal is just to make the best of it.
That's not the point. The reason you post timestamps is because the verification that you're telling the truth engages people more than simply speculating.
Nobody should come to 4chan expecting truth.
Do you mean the high rates of Schizophrenia in the Jewish community? It's most likely that they were inbreeding in Europe until the enlightenment. I'm not an expert on Schizophrenia but that is the theory
The thing about enjoying things is that it's not just about being happy. If you could stop starvation from being a thing it might not make you happy. But you might be satisfied with that.
If you prefer "a rigid moral standard" (reason I quote is that everyone claims that about their morals) then that's your way of coping in a sense. You've explicitly preferred it so you have reasons for it. I think you may even be happy about it if you figure out exactly why. Like if you value family, you can become happy if you realize it's because you care about them.
I'm an aspiring psychologist. I have aspergers and almost in my third year of college. What challenges will I face for me?I'm currently in group therapy to understand people and I use Tinder to talk to women
Hello Mrs physcolgist person. From what I've read in this thread you seem to a pretty open minded and tolerant person. Although not providing proof about who you are is a bit of a red flag to me I can understand why you'd have concerns with posting it. So I'll just try to give you a short rundown of what this board is about
>originally it was meant to create original content but after a lot of cultural changes on the board it's become a place for people (mainly men due to the demographic of people who visit 4chan) to come to express their sadness and anger with likeminded people
>our main topic that gets posted usually has something to do with women such as "why can't I get a girlfriend" or "why are women so x or why do they always act so y" as well as hating on the fact that many of us are 20+ yet are still virgins
>the reason it's mostly women hating is because 4chan tends to attract socially handicapped men who are typically on the uglier side. These two traits tend to cause these men to have various problems with women over their lives garnering a hatred towards them for always turning them down. Because of this you will see a lot of mysoginistic threads. Some are just mindless ranting while others actually have discussion that comes with various research.
>however, this is not the only cause of many of our troubles, just the main ones
>workplace and school problems
>social interaction problems (not just women)
>anti working threads (NEET standing for Not in Education Employment or Training)
>hikkikomori lifestyle (complete and utter shut ins who only leave their homes once a year or so)
>however, since /r9k/ isn't exactly defined as a depression board there will still be a wide variety of threads that seem to offer no discussion or real topic at all. We call this "shitposting"
a lot of threads tend to be troll threads or "bait" as we call them so that's why there is a lot of suspicion. If you have any questions for me about r9k please ask
I always transfer as it happens a lot to me. I'm 29 and many of my patients are single men of a similar age that are long term unemployed.
They don't have a lot of contact with girls and I am the only similar aged female that they are in contact with.
I tell them nicely that I legally can't accept their gifts and drawings etc. I will normally transfer them to another male psychologist if I feel they are becoming obsessed.
Also, I would advise you use a tripcode so we can identity you better. It's simple to do. In the name feild type "your name##a password of your choice" and it should come up looking like my name. It'd make things easier for us users. Just make sure to remove it when you're done. Using a tripcode is looked down apon heavily on 4chan (only when it's not a nessicary. People won't mind if you use one in this thread only) as it's usually linked to attention seeking
a commonly shared idea here is that women live life on "easy mode"
this essentially means that as a woman, you'll never have to worry about rejection, loneliness or not being able to have a family one day
These things for men, particularly men in the west, are much more real
do you agree with this at all?
and what do you think about this idea?
Hi, thanks. That helped a lot. I have picked up on the suspicion part too :)
It's funny these topics are very similar to some of my clients worries.
Do you think there is a sense of entitlement in some of these posters on this forum?
I've noticed that with my clients will show me a facebook photo of a girl they know that they want to be in a relationship with.
The girl is often absolutely gorgeous, a possible super model and my client will come in with spaghetti sauce stains on his shirt, body odor and dirty hair. It does annoy me that he would not accept an ugly girl but he does not realize that he must also make an effort.
It is like some of these young men aim to fail.
If I look into someone's eyes, I start to feel how serious the situation is and laugh. Sometimes I don't really look into people's eyes for the entirety of te conversation. In larger groups of people I don't look at anyone's eyes because it makes me nervous.
>my client will come in with spaghetti sauce stains on his shirt
Ok, I was supporting you but now I think you're just trolling
>Do you think there is a sense of entitlement in some of these posters on this forum?
Nice work fag.
>not being a master of deception and looking at anything but the eyes
People really can't tell if you're looking at their nose or eyebrows unless you're really close.
> It does annoy me that he would not accept an ugly girl but he does not realize that he must also make an effort.
What is this? Why should someone settle for an "ugly" girl?
You should teach your client how to improve his life to the point where he can go for beautiful women, instead of setting him up with similiar failures
It is true. It is part of human biology though.
I would consider myself attractive, if going by male attention goes and I am just self confident. I love to play netball and take care of myself.
However, I do have friends that don't take care of themselves and are quite large. If we are out at dinner men will totally ignore them and talk to the more attractive of my friends. So I see it on both sides.
As much as it hurts to say I don't think anyone would choose a big fat women over a beach volleyball player.
>still going after revealing your powerlevel
Yes, he comes in with SPAGHETTI stains, you're totally replying to a serious person.
You've got spunk to keep going like that, but the jig's already up.
>funny these topics are very similar to some of my clients worries.
we either attract like minded people or create them
>Do you think there is a sense of entitlement in some of these posters on this forum?
>The girl is often absolutely gorgeous, a possible super model and my client will come in with spaghetti sauce stains on his shirt, body odor and dirty hair. It does annoy me that he would not accept an ugly girl but he does not realize that he must also make an effort.
Some of us suffer from this while others don't. Some robots try extremely hard to achieve an acceptable standard for the women they like but just have very unfortunate traits that can't be overlooked such as being extremely ugly despite putting effort in their looks or being competely socially inept despite reading much on the topic.
On the other hand, many of us have a chance to get a female but simple lack of effort is thier flaw. They then come here to post about how much they hate women and how they're doomed to become a wizard (a man who has reached the age of 30+ and is stills virgin)
Still not using a tripcode? You don't have to if you don't want to but it'd help a lot of us out. It doesn't reveal any Personal information I can garuntee you
Anyway, the board isn't entirely entitled
Sure, some of the userbase wants the "best girl", but some people want just affection and validation, and would get with whoever loved them even if just mediocre
huh? Why is the sauce on the shirt so hard to understand. It's extremely common in mental health settings. It shows that they are in a bad way that they don't bother to change their clothes to come in for an appointment.
We actually have a tick box in our initial assessment interview where it says "stained clothes'
what is your opinion on Elliot rodger, the Santa Barbara shooter from the US
He made a few videos on youtube, I don't know if you watched them but you should, and released a collection of memoirs called "My Twisted World"
he has quite a following here
He also took very good care of himself so that can't be why he struggled so much to find someone
You can stop anytime trollkun.
Why are you still engaging after the spilled spaghetti reveal? Do you like bait?
Are your clients palms sweaty, knees weak and arms heavy?
Components of the Mental Status Examination
I. Appearance (Observed) - Possible descriptors:
Gait, posture, clothes, grooming.
You always note what their clothing is like, if it matches, if it's dirty etc.,
Spaghetti is an easy stain to get on your shirt. I personally do it all the time even when I'm really careful. And saying "spaghetti stained shirt" is a common thing in media when describing an unkept person
So, I'll give op the benefit of the doubt
And even if this is all one giant and elaborate ruse it's a fun one and I'm bored
>And saying "spaghetti stained shirt" is a common thing in media when describing an unkept person
You're reaching senpai.
Don't be coy~
I don't know if it is actually spaghetti sauce, it is just a figure of speech. It is some dark stain on the shirt and it is referred to as spaghetti sauce stains in the mental health community when asking about a client's appearance.
>the spilled spaghetti reveal?
It fascinates me that this is the biggest reaction from this whole page. Haven't you seen movies with unkempt people that don't care about life and have food stains on their shirts?
Because you've already seen picrelated, and all the greentext stories.
I've heard a little bit about Elliot Rodgers but the Santa Barbara shooter I am not too sure about. America has a lot of shootings to keep up with.
Elliot was the boy who wanted the blonde cheerleaders and couldn't get them? A client told me this story and said he understand how he felt. I don't know the full stories but I will watch those videos to get a better understanding. Thanks.
Ha, why does he have spaghetti in his pocket.
Spaghetti shirt stains is a figure of speech for anyone that has stains on their shirt. I heard it when I was in school.
It's also used in mental health fields to refer to a client that doesn't care about their appearance.
It's because 4chan has an ongoing joke where we say that when someone has an embarrassing moment they "spill spaghetti". Basically how we got to that joke is
>song by rapper Eminem named "lose yourself" where he's describing how he froze on stage from stage fright and how he vomited "moms spaghetti"
>stories emerged on 4chan where people would talk about how they go through an embarrassing situation and the story always ends with the person saying how they vomited "mom's spaghetti" out of nervousness
>somehow changed to spaghetti spilling out of pockets
>now the joke is that whenever someone does something socially awkward they "spill spaghetti"
>a person is spaghetti if they are socially inept
>It's also used in mental health fields to refer to a client that doesn't care about their appearance.
That's too good to be true.
I don't think it originated from that meme.
haha. That's really funny.
It dawned on me tonight why one of my clients always ends his stories with "feels bad man". I thought it was odd because I'm not a man but just let him go along with it. Now I've seen it posted on this site many times tonight and it all makes sense.
It is rather funny though that the spaghetti shirt means the same thing in mental health and on this website but it comes from two different meanings...
Hi assuming you're real Im really hoping you can help me. Before I start let's not jump to any conclusions. I serve in the navy, I am tall, and I take care of myself. I do not have "spaghetti stains" on my shirt and I do not smell. I am so lonely that I think about suicide very frequently. One girl that kept me company left me for said "fat stinky guy". I have no family, no love. My only explanation for this is my poor facial aesthetics (something I cannot change). Please tell me why I should live. Please tell me why this is worth it. I want to end it so bad
It's not meant to be hurtful but it is usually used when you receive a client from another psychologist. When you hand the file over, it is usually mentioned if he is a 'spaghetti shirt'.
That would usually mean a depressed teen/young male that doesn't care about his appearance and you can be prepared for that client. Client's can be extremely stressful, so you need to prepare yourself.
Wanted to get a quick question in before I browse the thread.
Have a BA in psych, would like to pursue a master's and become a therapist, but I've been out of school for a few years, and haven't kept in contact with people who could give me references. (while still being employed, so at least it's not a blank period)
What would you suggest on this part? Please keep in mind that I wouldn't be able to ask current job people for references not because of me, but because of their relation to me.
Hi, I started this thread thinking it would be one post every 5 minutes. Your best option would be going to see a psychologist in your area. Preferably a male as they can relate to it better. Sorry.
>your psych browses arcanine
I'd just give up if I found that shit out, blind leading the blind.
>if he is a 'spaghetti shirt'.
God I really wanna see one of these sheets, I'll bite and continue ITT.
>God I really wanna see one of these sheets, I'll bite and continue ITT.
What sheets? The patient files? There is a checkbox when we do the first interview where it says clothes, grooming etc., I usually write in 'SS' people at my work place understand it but I have had a psychologist from a different work place say "what is SS'. When I say spaghetti shirt, then they get it.
I don't have that option. If the military found out I was suicidal I'd be in loads of shit. I need someone to talk to anonymously. I'd even pay your ass. Just convince me I shouldn't die. I genuinely believe there's no reason to live
Of fucking course. He's not even allowed on here as its only 18+
On a side note, can I ask a question of my own? Growing up I was a very stable child with a loving family, friends and good grades. However, in the past few years everything started to go to hell. I'm not sure if it's the fact that I spend to much time on r9k but ice become extremely lazy and empathetic towards people. My best friend killed herself 4 weeks ago and when it happened I didn't feel anything. I'm just generally completely void of emotions that relate to human interaction like love, compassion and empathy. Why am I feeling like this? It only started a few years ago and got progressively worse as time went on
Please tell me what you and other psychologists tend to think about transgender people? I am a tranny and we get a LOT of hate both on here and out in the real world. Do psychologists hate us too? I have been to therapists before, I always wonder what they truly think of me. I was abused when I was a kid, do you think this caused it? I feel that its not politicaly correct for my therapists to have said this, but do you think its on their mind?
You can absolutely do skype counselling. Make a fake account if you need to and don't put your video camera on. Make sure it is a real company though.
Maybe you can find an ex military psych so they can relate to you. Use a fake name. You would just be a voice to them
Hi, social sciences are extremely politically correct. We love everyone and everyone is beautiful...
However, my opinion is that it is likely a mental illness, the suicide rates post op are something like 60% so it doesn't really make things better.
People react to abuse in different ways. There is a theory that some parts of the brain are faulty and it is sort of related to the theory of autism develops. Many people 'grow out of it' so I would not get surgery soon.
Generally people are not happier after surgery so that tells you something... there is a lot of political motivation in psychology behind de-stigmatizing mental illnesses.
Unfortunately, there is journal articles coming out now trying to say pedophilia should be accepted and young boys can choose their sexual partners. It is very disturbing
Just like Charlie. DEAR GOD, STOP REMINDING ME HOW STUPID I AM REEEEE
Anything that is a biological dead end is odd but it doesn't matter because politics rules psychology not the other way around.
If psychologists said there is something wrong with homosexuals their offices would be firebombed.
But to awnser the question, do you think there is something wrong with gay people? I feel that if I read between the lines you are saying that you would like to say that its not normal and you dont agree with them but cant because of political correctness. This is an ANONYMOUS image board and you can say whatever you want
I would say Transgenders are only going to be truly accepted in a liberal western society.... this is not going to last much longer unfortunately.
I don't see transgenders being accepted in 20-30 years. If you look at Europe, it is the heaven of liberalism and I believe they will be in civil war in the next 5-10 years according to friends in Germany
If you're going to be gay, at least try not to be too much of a degenerate. Of course it's unnatural. Go around getting fucked in the ass and you're going to end up with aids and hemorrhoids faggot
As I said to the Transgender man/woman openly gay people will only flourish in a liberal western society... we are at peak acceptance and within the next 10 years we will start returning to tribal societies... Gays are not going to be treated well in these societies.
Is something wrong with gay people could be answered so many ways. It's an evolutionary dead end so from that perspective yes. I also don't really care.
Psychologist, Psychiatrist, Cryptologist, Anthropologist.. is there REALLY a difference. Just make with the letters, man. I'm starving for this mystery to be solved in my lifetime.
Okay you are a bullshitter, I mean this is all pol tier red pilled bullshit, you arent who you say you are, you have clearly been around these parts before. Fuck off cunt
What? My point is that northern Europe is seen as the pinnacle of freedom to be who you are. Gays are being beaten in the streets now. My point is that 'is it ok/moral/acceptable to be gay is not going to be relevant when being open about it will put you in harms way.
It's like saying "is abortion moral", when you are dying in the desert. It doesn't really matter in that situation.
ok, gotta go now. man it was easy fooling you faggots into thinking I was a shrink. I'm just a fat neet neckbeard loser. i bet a few of you even fapped to the thought of a qt shrink being your gf.
fuck off, all of you
You've gotta be kidding me, you buy into that evolutionary psychology pseudoscience?
Do your patients a favor and refer them to someone who actually has the mental firepower required to be of any help. You're an embarrassment to the practice.
Do men need to procreate to further advance their species you fucking moron?
You're just a silly woman who should be spending her time raising children while the men of the world are out there continuing the advancement of science and technology.
>tfw I have to start sleeping with women now
10/10 bait. if i wasn't wasted I'd reply. also there being one gazillion shitfuck of replies doesnt help my motivation regarding reading thread
i just realized i said id reply if i wasnt wasted but this is an reply so i can only assume this is something freudian and id like to fuck your mother now pls
I'm going to go now everyone. Thanks for the insights. The spaghetti stories were so funny how they were related but for different reasons.
I wasn't trying to lead anyone on, but I can see how people can fake it on here and why you are suspicious.
Thanks again and good luck. See a psychologist or counsellor if you need to, it's got to be better than nothing.
The biggest issue is the fact that mental disorders are entirely illusory and it's simply takes less effort to blame an 'illness' than to work towards doing what needs to be done
what do you do when you cant stop thinking about how the jews have completely fucked the entire world over? i stay awake for days trying to piece the things together and why thesy did this but i still cant understand it. it makes me very angry that they have destroyed humanity
use a #thenotherstuff
to make a trip
is it common for people to develop some sort of faux-masochism? something like doing things they don't like on purpose, since it's better than feeling nothing?
> look at this unsolvable problem, its awful
> guys the answer is obvious, its X platitude you've heard 1000 times
> spends next 5 posts trying to convince people hes right
i wish people like you would just fuck off
if you copy a sentence to your clipboard and then click-link to the same post, it greentexts for you automatically
We'll never know if this was bait or not but it was amazing if it was.
On the other hand, she seemed like she was interested and cared for us until you drove her away. Even if it was an elaborate troll she did no harm and it felt nice to be cared about by a nice lady. I'll miss her. press f to pay respects
Japaneesu meido here. Ojou-sama told me that many pure, kind and capable young males browsed this internet website and I'm just here to find a husband.
>Just talk about your feelings
>Just be happy
>Just take these drugs
>Just everything will be all
>Just don't think about that lol
>Just just just just just
I wish people want the world to be a good place to live in.
I can answer that for whoever plays psychiatrist here. You should get on antipsychotics and antidepressants for a major depressive episode, first starting intake at night for like 8 weeks and see if it gets better with the sleep. Seeing how it goes there's lots of room for change in medication. You're probably experiencing a bipolar episode, too, for like half to one and a half years or so. I can assure you meds would help a great deal in your case, but you have to take the first step and go to a real (good) psychiatrist and tell him exactly what you told us, he will understand. Please, you don't have to suffer, it hurts everyone around you, too.
How could I be more focused on the things I need to do for the long run, but don't necesarry feel like it at the moment?
How can I incorporate an imediate response to specific stimulus to my behaviour?
How could I stop talking to authority figures feeling that I owe them something?
How could I assert myself(either agressively or not) on males and females?
being a future drop-out psychology student doesn't make you a psychologist, bruh
I know its a fake I know its a fake I know its a fake I know its a fake I know its a fake I know its a fake I know its a fake I know its a fake
But it doesn't make this thread hurt any less.
I'd say your best bet is to just surf the site for a few days and suspend disbelief. Making your presence known leads to other posters modifying their behavior.
I also recommend you look at third party resources on 4chan culture as a whole. Some cartoonist wrote a book about the site some time ago, can't remember the name though.
