Im more willing to help out friends than family though they have never been anything but loving and supportive of me. Why do you think this is. Also 24 at home with car note dying to have my own place.
I am not depressed and have no social issues, however I prefer to not talk to people. I enjoy spending all my free time playing video games and watching movies. I have a solid Job and will never have to worry about money. I used to take ADHD medication but eventually got tired of going to the doctor to get it refilled. So u forced myself to learn to control my ADHD which I did, and it no inhibits me.
I think I'm probably autistic. Not even e-autistic/special-snowflake autistic/quiz-autistic. Like, flat-out autistic. I'm really fucking good at blending in and functioning, but I have a background in acting.
To cut to the chase: Is there any point in me getting a diagnosis?
How does it feel to know that one day, probably years from now all those other peoples problems have become one of your problems. I know a lot of Psychologists who have deep personal problems. This I suspect positively correlates (lol see what I did there), with the personality type that decides to do psychology. Fill that hole with trying to help others kinda thing. Do rate psyc students as a good fuck though.
>>675615794 CBT has the most research. Pure talk therapies like psychoanalysis have very little in the way of "why" or "how" it works so practitioners often get the process wrong and have patients spend years without progress.
im looking to go into the field. I was wondering firstly... 1) where the most money within the field is 2) how stressful is it 3) do you wish you had done a different career line 4) what is the most common problem people come to you for?
Look Anonymous. I know that doing new things or talking to doctors or even just admitting you have a problem is scary. It can be the hardest part of being a human being even, because it means admitting you are a fragile little speck of carbon that happens to have figured out how to walk and talk.
But facing challenges head on, grabbing the horns of the bull and not letting go is how we advance as people. It's how we become better. Hell, it's how we enjoy life.
I'm not telling you not to be scared; you are scared, and you should explore that. But you also need to be courageous. You need to do what is best for you, even if it is scary, because otherwise you'll never move forward, you'll never be okay, and you'll never be truly happy, the happiness that comes from the security of being healthy and knowing who you really are.
So please, seek medical attention Anonymous. Be courageous like I know you can be.
>>675616592 If you don't need help, and aren't asking anything then why are you in this thread still? Clearly this anon is going out of their way to help others. the fact that you're so put off by others offering help on the internet is sad as fuck man. I pity you.
How does it feel to know you've spent years studying a field that is complete under developed shambles, that you will never actually help people just temporarily make them feel better by helping them vent, that all your thousands of dollars and hours spent studying taught you to do was analyse problems from multiple perspectives, something anyone can do anyway. I fucking hate psychologists they don't help fuck you

Everyone's a psychologist nowadays. But I'll bite. I manipulate everyone I know. I understand how and when to use words that only benefit me. I hurt others, not physically, but mentally, in a way that makes them question themselves. I work as a realtor, but realistically, I have no use for the money.
>>675616875 Iv also wanted to go to a therapist but its not so common in new zealand to go to one unless you've actually got problems. I want to go in order to get myself analysed and basically have a short cut into what shortcommings my personality has, and how to get to the route of them.
But i don't want to go and waste their time either specially when they could be dealing with somebody who is in so much more need. What do you recommend?
>>675617121 It definitely seems that way. Hope you have a good day today. I always look forward to seeing your threads. You're essentially living the life I imagine I'd have developed had I not dropped out of cs/social psych due to serious issues. Gives me a little hope that if I can get back and even though everything isn't fixed, things can still go on.
So the town I live in is sorta small. People know friends of people.
If I'm 27 and have a hunch that I can't get a date around peers or friends or anyone near because there are people insisting towards others that I'm gay, overhear them talking about it, can I sue for defamation? Can I sue for defamation if it affects my quality of life?
I tried my best to ignore it but it really fucks up your reputation.
My mother have cancer and gonna die soon. But I can't cry. Every time my whole family is crying I can't I just don't feel bad, and that makes me look like I don't care, I started acting now. What to do?
>>675614714 I pretty much hate myself and what my life's at. I'm doing things to try and better myself (currently in college, I try to get out and be social), but yet I still feel like shit pretty much all the time
I actually find myself wishing for death often. Something like a fatal accident. I can't really envision killing myself, mainly due to my dog and remaining family.
this girl i work with is perfect and we want to love eachother but im pushing her away because i have terrible insecurities and cant handle her love. how do i not fuck it up so i can actually be happy for onc ein my life?
I don't know man I just imagine you being a stuck up guy thinking he knows better than anyone. I picture you and me sittin at a table having a coffee, and you keep rambling on about psychological shit and try to outsmart me with supposed witty comments and comebacks, and you'll find yourself extremely funny
>>675618538 im the anon who posted the question The primary difference is med school and ability to prescribe drugs Is my understanding. Any jo schmo can become a psychologist as technically its just someone who studies the psyche...hence my other question with that one. By I agree with your assessment of this clown
>>675619471 paranoia can be faked easily. in fact theres hardly any distinction between normal and pathological paranoia. the only thing is the congruency of your symptoms. i.e. how long you can keep the act up for.
>>675619674 depends. when did you start? what do you mean by shut down?
>>675619790 >psychologists go in through psychologist degree, then subspecialising in clinical psychology ( as opposed to something like forensic psych). >psychiatrists are ACTUAL doctors. i.e. medical school.
>>675619580 Lemme see if I can help. >>675619520 >My brother who was adopted killed himself >younger brother >sometimes I think about it other times it doesn't worry me > should I see someone about it?
Would you prefer giving an individual with ADD amphetamine salts that stimulate the patient or concerta that doesn't? All though no stimulated effect does it still do what it's supposed to do? Want to start taking them again to get me through school but hate the crash and the antisocial shit that comes with it. Sorry for the shit tier punctuation, I'm super hungover and don't care.
>>675620498 you realize both amphetamines and methylphenidate - concerta, are both stimulants..
one is an agonist, the other is a reuptake inhibitor
amphetamine salts are meant to work better in adults in comparison to methylphenidate, but methylphenidate has more mild side effects.
varies depending on the person though.
also if you are taking it at prescribed doses, you shouldnt experience crashes.
>>675620702 graduated exposure therapy. works if you see an actual psychologist but the general gist is:
- write down list of things that provoke your anxiety - give them a score of how much anxiety they give you, from 1 being very, very little, to 10 being very much. - then rank them and start with being in a situation that gives least anxiety, until it gives no anxiety, and work your way up
>>675621129 I was prescribed when I was 16, 19 now. It's maybe perhaps that I was prescribed such a high dose because I thought it was fun to tweak out all day but as months went on I found myself losing up to 60 pounds and having zero social life as I was a very charismatic and social person before. Also, when I took concerta I don't believe I had stimulated effects. However, when I took amphetamine salts or vyvanse I was a weirdo. I think I'm gonna try and take a low dose of concerta first and if good, I'll go from there. It just sucks because I believe I developed serotonin syndrome, I get severe anxiety as I did not give a shit bout anything before hand. Also off antidepressants too
you arent meant to binge on either amphetamines or methylphenidate.
its always a good idea to use the LOWEST DOSE POSSIBLE to still get an effect. i.e. if you only use it when studying, then take 10mg, study, and see if you can pinpoint when it wears off and how many lapses of concentration you had.
then take it again just prior to when you know it'll wear off and see how well you stay focused.
imo something best discussed with your shrink.
if concentration is your main problem, could be depression or something.
>>675622040 I know but I was young and stupid. I was taking 100mg a day at one point in my life. I started hallucinating and smoked a pack a day. My dick head Hindu psych just kept raising my dosage I guess, more money for him. Concentration is my main concern. Been diagnosed with manic depression when I was 15
... What can I do to help my depression? I can't take anti-depressants because my liver values are way too high for them. My liver values are around 166, I don't use alcohol or drugs even tho my depression gets worse and worse everyday and it's been diagnosed as "slight" depression about half a year ago, it would probably get diagnosed as way worse now if I'd go and get it diagnosed again. Only thing that keeps me away from a suicide is computers.
>>675623423 I believe so, doctors didn't call it that, they just said it Yeah you got it from your father.". I feel more and more useless day by day and I don't know what I'm supposed to do anymore. I'm selling my car to buy more computer components to keep my thoughts away from suicide and how easy it and fast it would be.
>>675623763 they're not amphetamines, don't expect miracles. that being said definitely take piracetam. its stupid cheap and safe. you can literally eat it by the spoonful and be fine. its like a "well why not" type of thing, like vitamins.
>>675623933 good call. imo life just gets harder after university, but you get better at dealing with it. trouble is not everybody starts at the same level to begin with. some people need some extra help.
>>675614714 OUT OUT OUT OUT OUT OUT OUT OUT OUT OUT OUT OUT OUT OUT OUT OUT OUT OUT OUT OUT OUT OUT OUT OUT OUT OUT OUT OUT OUT OUT OUT OUT OUT OUT OUT OUT OUT OUT OUT OUT OUT OUT OUT OUT OUT OUT OUT OUT OUT OUT OUT OUT OUT OUT OUT OUT OUT OUT OUT OUT OUT OUT OUT OUT OUT OUT OUT OUT OUT OUT OUT OUT OUT OUT OUT OUT OUT OUT OUT OUT OUT OUT OUT OUT OUT OUT OUT OUT OUT OUT OUT OUT OUT OUT OUT OUT OUT OUT OUT OUT OUT OUT OUT OUT OUT OUT OUT OUT OUT OUT OUT OUT OUT OUT OUT OUT OUT OUT OUT OUT OUT OUT OUT OUT OUT OUT OUT OUT OUT OUT OUT OUT OUT OUT OUT OUT OUT OUT OUT OUT OUT OUT OUT OUT OUT OUT OUT OUT OUT OUT OUT OUT OUT OUT
>>675624118 >but be aware that too much gives you a killer headache for the next 12 hours. can be prevented by supplementing with some sort of choline. stressing the NMDA system leads to acetylcholine depletion, which leads to the headache. its a careful balance though as excess choline can lead to depression.
>>675624854 I literally dont need evidence faggot, thats not how it works, all you need to do is show your degrees and certificates with time stamp your you're full of shit and a massive fucking beaner. Simple as that, nothing out of the unusual. Papers please.
>>675625132 1. I'm not the person you're accusing here 2. Generally you don't go around accusing people of lying without some kind of reasonable suspicion or proof. Otherwise we'd have to carry around evidence of everything we plan to say any time we leave the house.
>>675625380 they are all based on the same piracetam backbone. the nuances between any of the racetams are strictly that-- nuances. plus, piracetam has been studied way longer than any of the derivatives.
>>675614714 I'm more inclined to believe that we mold children into a Genger role and identity. The age old argument of boys playing with GI Joes and Girls playing with Barbie's. Feelings are irrational in nature and People can't accurately gauge their own rationality. It has been my opinion all throughout my undergrad years as a Psych student that the DSM change in identifying and treating People with GID was put into place solely for being politically correct which in my view limits the science of a field that is normally slammed by the public for being a joke science. What is your view on this issue?
>>675614714 those are some tasty looking leftovers nigga, what is your opinion on true ilumination, im happy 24/7 and im not forcing myself into that state, i have acquiered money and bitches withaout even realizing it, im pretty sure is not megalomania.
>>675625520 anecdotally, when i drift off into sleep i get psychedelic type stuff. like i can see patterns and shit behind my eyes. i dont know if i'm making it up or not but i've suddenly shook myself awake just as i was falling asleep because it really felt like i was tripping.
>>675625549 partially correct. however noopept acts on similar receptors but are not part of the piracetam class. and its more than nuances. levitricetam is used as an antiepileptic. while oxiracetam is known to be a mild mood regulator and used as an adjunct (off label, of course) to nootropic stacks.
>>675625520 nothing to worry about then. but you should see a gp about it if it bothers you that much. might give you some nice pills to take at night.
>>675625490 yes it is real. its classified as a disorder of social development from a paediatric point of view. i.e. a focal developmental delay disorder. only its not called that once kids get past a certain age. i forget. i think its like 3-4 or something.
>>675614714 I want to suck off a trap, but not have sex. I'm completely straight and have never thought about a guy that way. Some reason I want to suck a trap dick, but never an actual man's dick. What do?
>>675614714 hey dude, is there anything you could recom. me, because I'm really fucked up since my grandma died. It happened without a warning and she was so young. She died because of a heartattack and came to see her one last time before she got burned. I guess it was just too much for me and since that week I'm really nervous about my heart. Checking my pulse regularly and been to the hospital ones because I thought I would have a heartattack too. When I got to the doc I felt much better and the test we're totally fine. Even thought I got the results I'm still nervous. Is there anything to do?
for all you "kill yourself" kids out there. Just go and fuck yourself.
>>675626332 For the most part we don't typically have asylums like you'd think, and I believe in-patient care is mostly temporary now. Mental health stuff tends to be more about making sure you can love a functional life rather than keeping you away from society now.
>>675626518 Well that puts you slightly closer to homosexuality I'd think. But it's not like you can just be gay or straight. As much as I hate to give any kind of verification to special snowflake types, sexuality isn't in any way rigid or binary. Personally I look at it that there are as many sexualities as people, the labels we use just happen to be the simplest way of explaining how we express ourselves sexually. So you can still call yourself straight even if there are some things that are slightly towards homosexuality.
>>675614714 I left a high paying job in Australia to come back to America and live in an RV on my parents property after my Dad's health declined. I had two weeks with him before he died in my arms. Its been a cluster ever since, as of six months ago, I lost my Mom, I was the only family member that stayed with her in the hospital to the end. She left everything to sort out with my brothers, brothers are drug addicts and alcoholics, thieves and liars. Stress through the roof.
Over the last six months, I've lost my tolerance for people's bullshit, largely withdrawing from social events, cutting people out of my life that cause drama. I quit my job last week due to stress. Depressed as fuck, grew up in a poor family, last of five kids. Only one in the family to go to college and leave the country. Feel like a failure, still living in a fucking RV while I rebuild my life.
>>675625285 >2. Generally you don't go around accusing people of lying without some kind of reasonable suspicion or proof. Otherwise we'd have to carry around evidence of everything we plan to say any time we leave the house. Thats cute, but your wrong. You can actually accuse who ever you want, and they have to show up, unless you live in a muslim shithole where they just kill you
>>675626813 The fact is that if you're not a danger to yourself or the people around you then they probably won't lock you up. And if you are, they'll probably just want to keep you in until you stop being. The good news is, these things are usually effective enough that even those stays tend to be rather short. There's not really much risk of being locked up for life.
>>675626899 There are as many sexual preferences as there are people but only 3 acceptable labels for them. Hetero, homo, and bi. Every other one that kids like to call themselves have some emotional or social underlying to them, whereas sexuality is physical.
>>675626332 I can see your concern about that. I'm in the US so it's pretty much a rule that unless you're a danger to yourself or credibly to others you can talk freely to your guy.
I was held in a psych ward for 10 days (when it should have been 96 hours) for a suicide attempt. [I self detoxed from 285 mg morphine a day in a month - kek]. I was held so long because they were bilking my insurance. Once I saw the actual Shrink she released me the next day.
Anyway, I've told my therapist a few times I'm gonna snap and kill someone but since I don't have an actual plan/victim we both laugh at the idea.
>it might not be as bad as you think going to talk
>>675627048 You seem to be confused about what I was saying. Sure you CAN accuse whoever you want, but people tend to start thinking of you as an asshole for doing that. And the response of "I don't need to prove myself to you" is actually valid for that.
Unless you're talking legally, in which case as far as I'm aware a lot of countries have consequences for falsely accusing someone.
>>675614714 if you're a real psychologist: go kill yourself you stupid attention seeking shithead. Psychologists are literly the worst people to exist on this planet. Stupid as shit(ALWAYS, no exception), getting a shitload of money for doing NOTHING at all. NOTHING. But if youre just a lonefag pretending to be a psychologist: go on.
>>675627296 I wouldn't necessarily say that sexuality is 100% physical, there is a psychological component to it I'm pretty sure. However, those three labels are a very good way of expressing sexuality in its simplest terms, I believe. I don't see reason to deviate from that really. It's just important to see them as descriptors instead of concrete boxes.
>>675627402 I'm not honestly sure why they would do that, I thought most suicide hotlines were very strict about taking every person seriously for a very good reason. You shouldn't let what they say cause you to distrust reaching out for help in general though, if you were seriously looking for help then you probably need it.
>You seem to be confused about what I was saying. I'm really not, and it doesnt make you an ashole for calling someone out for being a shitfaced liar If fag A claims to be a psychologist and fag B questions his validity, then fag B is not being an ashole. Sorry
