Hello, friends! Got a Q&A for you today that is actually just one two-part question. Stay tuned next week for a freebie update!

Here's two-part question:

Hello, friends! I hope you're having a really good week. This is a Q&A episode with two really important questions. The first one talks about a suicide attempt in a non-graphic way. I wanted to let you know that off the bat so you can be aware going into it. Nothing intense or visually striking, but potentially triggering nonetheless. 

Questions for this episode:

  • I had a suicide attempt that everyone thinks was an accidental overdose. Do I need to tell my family the truth?
  • I have severe bipolar 1 and I have always wanted to become a psychologist and do therapy. Is this possible?

As always you can send me your questions to duffthepsych@gmail.com and if you'd like to see the full show notes head over to duffthepsych.com/episode244

Hello, friends! Sorry in advance that the audio is a tiny bit blown out in this one. Hopefully you don't notice, but something weird was going on with my audio interface. 

ANYWAYS... got a great episode here for you today. Two questions that I felt somewhat underqualified to answer, as a man, but they were too good not to share. The questions are:

  • I am realizing that I am more gay than I thought. How can I explore this in the context of my long-term heterosexual relationship?
  • Between a new baby and COVID, my anxiety is getting terrible. What can I do?

As always, you can send me your questions to duffthepsych@gmail.com and if you'd like to see the full show notes, check out duffthepsych.com/episode243!

Hello, friends! In this episode, I take a few shorter questions covering some amazing topics such as:

  • Will my psychiatrist or therapist drop me for not getting better fast enough?
  • What can I do about financial and job insecurity during COVID?
  • How can I balance working on myself and giving space during a break from my relationship?

As always, you can send me your questions to duffthepsych@gmail.com and if you'd like to see full show notes check out duffthepsych.com/episode242
