Hey, friends! Before I get into the questions for this episode, I wanted to let you know that I recently posted a video and blogpost in which I share an entire chapter from my book about suicide. You can check that out and share it at http://duffthepsych.com/suicide. Here are this week's questions:

  • How do I tell me mom that I don't need more therapy?
  • Am I a fraud for improving my depression symptoms on my own?
  • How can I talk about self-harm with my therapist without ruining things?

That's it for this week! As always you can send me your questions to duffthepsych@gmail.com

Hello, friends! Sorry for the lapse in shows. I did that re-posting of my interview on the Cognitive Rampage podcast a couple weeks ago and this past week I got super sick and completely lost my voice! No bueno. I'm feeling a lot better now and I'm back with another great question and answer session for you. Here are the questions covered:

  • Are anxiety and perfectionism related?
  • How do you find passions and interests? Everything feels like a chore.
  • What can I do about being in the same location as my abuser?

Keep sending me in your questions. I will be back again next week as long as I don't get the plague again! Send them in to duffthepsych@gmail.com
