    Me, Moods, & Coping Strategies

    Yes. I'm glad you found people to help you. Not everyone is fortunate enough to have access to mental health care. I think your emotions are influencing the content of your hallucinations. Asking your therapist to help you change how you think about what happened to you so you can forgive the...

    What are your controversial opinions regarding the autism spectrum?

    My brain seems to work differently than most people with the result that I have controversial and unpopular opinions. I don't have any problem with people disagreeing with me (since I already know my opinions are unpopular) but I don't want a bunch of people to gang up on me and call me a troll...

    Is Psychology a Science?

    In your opinion. Are you saying you want to censor and silence me because you are intolerant of people who disagree with your ideas? I hope not because dismissing my ideas while complaining about other people disagreeing with your ideas sounds like hypocrisy to me. A discussion involves...

    Obsessing over my diagnosis

    Many of the traits you described are consistent with being autistic. A positive environment would naturally help you become more social and make eye contact easier. People who are autistic can definitely like people and enjoy being around them.

    Is Psychology a Science?

    Psychology is a major people choose when they're not smart enough to get a degree in the hard sciences. I believe it's considered a soft science but since it tends to attract the mentally ill (the mentally well often don't see any need for psychology) and emotional thinkers who don't have the...

    Making NT Friends

    Unless you find someone with the same interests, it's best to keep your special interests to yourself. That may sound harsh but would you want to be friends with someone who constantly talked about birds, pipes, or some other topic that doesn't interest you at all? Finding people with similar...

    @Atrapa Almas I think I discuss scientific topics like a pro because I'm a very scientific person who loves science. I like to help others and really enjoy learning and educating people about science.

    The Sentence No One Should Ever Say

    My time is valuable and I've found that most people of a certain political persuasion (one that is strongly anti-science) aren't interested in the truth. If you're interested, there are plenty of websites you can easily find with simple Internet searches that will confirm what I told you.

    The Sentence No One Should Ever Say

    I think many people, including psychologists, don't really understand much about psychology and social interactions. I hope this changes in the future so more people can get along, feel like they belong, and enjoy their lives.

    The Sentence No One Should Ever Say

    Your parents should have helped you understand why you were being bullied and what you could have done differently to avoid being bullied. CBT helps people who were neglected learn what their parents should have taught them. Many times what people think is bullying is nothing more than harmless...

    My diagnosis ruined much of my life and I don't know what to do....

    It definitely seems like you're suffering from post traumatic stress due to the way people treated you when you were younger. Given your past experiences and the difficulty convincing a mental health provider that other mental health providers caused your post traumatic stress, you may be better...

    The Sentence No One Should Ever Say

    I bet you would have said the same thing to independent thinkers who rejected Big Tobacco studies promoted by doctors and the media that concluded that cigarettes were harmless. After independent researchers found a link between cigarettes and lung cancer, Big Tobacco conducted hundreds of bogus...

    The Sentence No One Should Ever Say

    Like many conservatives I know, I'm a strong believer in science and the scientific method. I reject some studies supporting climate alarmism because of strong evidence the conclusions are the result of fraud (conflicts of interest) or incompetence (poor logic/irrational thinking). It's hard to...

    The Sentence No One Should Ever Say

    The climate has been changing for thousands of years. I was referring to the hysterics and alarmism of climate change propaganda that sea levels would rise and wipe out the coasts, that we'd have to flee to Mars if the Earth got a few degrees hotter, and that the only way to prevent it is to...

They are perpetual victims who require safe spaces because their divisive leaders convinced them the sky is always falling (Covid hysteria, climate change), that everyone is out to get them (racism is everywhere), and that people control their emotions simply by disagreeing with...

    The Sentence No One Should Ever Say

    Why not? It's a figure of speech that merely expresses an opinion that a person doesn't know much about a particular topic. I know I'm not perfect so it doesn't bother me at all when people express that reality. It's a fact that some people are less intelligent or less knowledgeable than...

    I am innocent, I am confused, I am sorry

    The authorities don't know you so they have no way of knowing that you're a good person. They're also trained to take every potential threat seriously. For example, I saw on the news once that they sent like 20 people to investigate a suspicious white substance in a parking lot outside of a...
