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

Hello, all! Great episode here for you today thanks to a couple awesome listener questions. If you haven't yet gotten a copy of my 500 Journal Prompts book, it makes a perfect little stocking stuffer. Check it out!

Here are the questions from this episode:

  • My sister is depressed, even though nothing is wrong with her life and I'm frustrated by it. What can I do?
  • Due to my addiction to methamphetamine and heroin, I feel like I don't deserve to get better. Should I feel this way?

As always, you can send me questions to duffthepsych@gmail.com and find show notes at http://duffthepsych.com/episode283

Hello, all! Hope your week has been phenomenal. I appreciate you all! In this episode, I tackle the following questions:

  • How can I get over my exercise-induced anxiety and heart palpatations?

Hello, friends! Thank you to all of you that have been sharing the podcast as part of your Spotify Wrapped posts. Amazing to think that I've been a significant part of your year. I appreciate you so much!

In this episode, I tackle the following questions:

  • I've worked through most of my trauma, but issues still arise in my relationship from time to time. How can I avoid passing these issues down to my young child?
  • I work with severe populations in a healthcare setting. I feel like I could be experiencing caregiver burnout. Is this possible and what can I do about it?
