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, friends! This episode features two questions related to trauma. There is nothing violent or explicit described, but both questions do involve childhood abuse. Just be aware. Here is what is covered in this episode:

  • I sometimes doubt that my trauma ever happened and use self-harm as a way to remind myself that it did. What can I do?
  • I have several psychiatric disorders and my psychiatrist wants me to be evaluated for ADHD. How can I tell the difference between ADHD and symptoms caused by my other issues?

As always, you can send me questions to duffthepsych@gmail.com and find the show notes at http://duffthepsych.com/episode287

Hey, friends! I hope that your week has been great. I want to give you a big thanks for listening to the show. I really appreciate you. This is a question and answer episode where I tackle the following:
  • How can I get over my anxiety about having unstructured time off from work?
  • I have erectile dysfunction with my new partner and my doctor thinks it is psychological. What can I do?

Hello, all! I hope that you are having a fantastic week. Unfortunately, omicron has found its way into the Duff household, but alas... the show must go on!

I have a great Q&A episode with the following questions submitted by listeners like you:

  • My wife died two years ago, and I am still completely closed off to romantic connections. What can I do?
  • Is it possible to be traumatized by hearing about something bad happening to someone else?

Hello, friends! Haven't talked in a little while. I hope you have been enjoying yourself. I am back this week with a new episode. This time instead of a Q&A, I am going to be talking about how I am approaching the year. I go through a LOT in this episode, come hang for about an hour and listen to me ramble.
