    Would you report this?! ?

    If you were a student and you had a clinical rotation with a doctor (psychiatrist) and he looked at you inappropriately as in checking out your butt and chest almost every time you are there. It was a glance but still it’s inappropriate....

    That’s what happened to me. He would look at my butt when I bend down and I turn around and he quickly looks away. Then when I get up to leave he checks out my body....it makes me feel uncomfortable and grossed out because it’s unwanted attention...And he is 60 years old...

    I can understand if he did it once but almost every time I was there...it’s not ok Would you report it to your school? Yes or no? Why or why not?

    How to handle anxiety ?

    Hi, I’m here to ask one question because I want to know. So I have mild anxiety, I never really get panic attacks, my anxiety flares up mostly at night time because ten years ago I had my first panic attack in my sleep and ever since I’ve been messed up diagnosed with mild depression and anxiety. Long story short, recently I’ve been having issues driving over bridges with water or higher than normal bridges or long ones. Reason why is not because it’s water, or whatever , reason why is because I’m afraid I’ll get an anxiety attack and drive off and kill myself and my family. I’m afraid of dying and I’m afraid at the panic attack moment my brain will make that decision just so it doesn’t have to panic. Never happened before but I always get anxious driving over bridges. Is this normal? Like can you reassure me that I actually won’t drive off the bridge even with high anxiety during that 15-20 seconds? Also same goes with elevators and planes, I get scared of getting a panic attack because I have no way out if I do and I’m afraid of doing something bad even tho I never did. I think in a way I have agoraphobia. Help me answer this question so I can be peaceful? Btw I’m 28 and a male and don’t want to spend rest of my life worrying about this ****.

    Will my baby inherit my depression and anxiety?

    I suffer really bad with anxiety and depression and I have done for years.

    Me and my girlfriend recently had a surprise baby which we didn't have a clue about and she didn't even know she was pregnant.

    I am so happy, but at the same time I am really worried, because I keep thinking that she is going to have depression and anxiety when she is older because I have passed it onto her.

    How often do failed relationships cause one to self mutilate?

    Favorite Answer:

    A failed relationship is one of the top reasons for suicidal ideation and suicidal completion without a mental health diagnosis. It's a sort of acute crisis, like losing a job, public humiliation, etc. that can be very demanding on a person even when they've never experienced mental health symptoms otherwise.

    Why do people act like cognitive disabilities ADHD and autism are less valid excuses than other disabilities ?

    Was diagnosed with ADHD when I was younger. My brother would literally always tell me it was just a cop out and would always try to work with my parents so that I "wouldn't start using it as an excuse". I am hard-working and have no interest in using anything as an excuse, I don't know where this prejudice comes from but many people with ADHD have to deal with it.  

    Whenever  a kid is diagnosed with one of these conditions, people make it a point to be like "well it isn't an excuse". It doesn't matter if a particular instance (say an accidental  social faux pas in an autistic person) was due to an actual symptom of the disorder- people make it a point to not be understanding( ie. they will refer to being "understanding" as "giving a free pass"). People will flat out refuse to be understanding if it is an adult. 

    The reason I am making this post is not that I feel like I need special treatment. It is because I have always had to go out of my way to buck this stereotype. 

    They don't usually do this for other conditions. Kid has to miss a bunch of school due to an intestinal disorder? No problem. Everyone understands. Anyone who questions it will be seen as quite rude.

    I'm a lawyer but I want to become a music teacher, is that bad?

    I went through years of illness, depression, and many tears to get my 5 year law degree. When I finally graduated I was exhausted and sick, anxious. I didn't get a chance to recover. Because of my fragile health, i went in a downward spiral. I can't complain about my current job, but my passion was actually to be a music teacher, and i didn't know there was a bachelor program until now. Should I give up ever persuing a job in law so I can be a music teacher? I think it would help me out of what I think is a depression. I'm not even a fan of desk jobs. I'm brilliant at music and I think I could work part time too to save my energy to keep recovering.
