The Hardcore Self Help Podcast with Duff the Psych

This is a podcast dedicated to answering your questions about mental health, anxiety, depression, relationships, sex, and life WITHOUT psychobabble BS. I am Dr. Robert Duff, a psychologist from Southern California, but I'm also a regular dude who legitimately wants to help out. I wrote the best selling books Hardcore Self Help: F**k Depression and Hardcore Self Help: F**K Anxiety. Those are available at http://hardcoreselfhelp.com

Hey everyone! Back with another question and answer episode after a nice little holiday. I am slightly scatter brained this episode because people kept ringing the door and interrupting me. Grrrrrrr! This episode has some great questions though, so I hope you find some useful bits of information here. This is what I cover:

  • What should I expect from medication for depression?
  • How can I address my anxiety about money?
  • How can I motivate my depressed spouse to clean the house?

If you have questions, please send them over to me at duffthepsych@gmail.com or on twitter at http://twitter.com/duffthepsych

In this episode I do something pretty different. Rather than take mental health questions, I present three ideas that I "stole" from people in fields OTHER than psychology. However, these are ideas that I think have great applications to life, emotions, and mental health. Two ideas are stolen from Tim Ferriss, who is the author of the 4 Hour book series and has an amazing podcast called the Tim Ferriss Show. The other idea is stolen from Chris Hardwick, who is the creator of the Nerdist network and a television host. 

Here are the ideas I would like you to ponder:

  • Do I need to gain it the same way I lost it?
  • What would this look like if it were easy?
  • You can not reason someone out of a position that they did not reason themselves into.

Next week will most likely be another Q&A, so send your questions over to duffthepsych@gmail.com or hit me up on twitter at http://twitter.com/duffthepsych

This episode has some tough questions! I'm glad you aren't going easy on me. Keep them coming, please! Here is what I cover:

  • How can you tell the difference between self-care and just being lazy or avoiding?
  • What can I do when I am jealous of my friend making close relationships with other people?
  • What should I do, as a senior in high school, about my mental health issues?

On this episode I do a deep dive into physical symptoms and cues that are related to anxiety. Often people feel a physical sensation and their brain misinterprets it for anxiety, which prompts those familiar feelings of panic. We talk all about that.

Next week is a Q and A episode, so please send me your questions at duffthepsych@gmail.com or http://twitter.com/duffthepsych
