Ask a Psychiatrist and Get Answers to Mental Health Questions ASAP
Good evening. I'm online and would be happy to help. Let me know when you are online and we can chat further
I am online now
Good evening...thank you for the opportunity to help
Thanks for the chance to resolve this
I've read through your question thoroughly and a fair amount of it appears to be based on perception of yourself and esteem? Does that sound accurate?
This is what is it
thank you for that insight
It is not present at work, with friends or anywhere else, only when my heart is involved
so only when intimate relationships are on the line do you question yourself?
I find myself looking at some beautiful women and thinking in my head that he would be so much better with them
Yes, I am a smart woman and I am not sure why I think like that
May I ask...have you ever been through therapy?
have you found anything to be helpful?
all I was asked was to talk about my childhood and how it made me feel
which was absolutely the wrong approach in all honesty
the most appropriate approach to how you are presenting would be to explore more of a cognitive approach
I think so too. The past is the past...I would just love to shut that little voice
I would imagine so
For once...since a very long time, I have something to lose and it is quite scary
essentially this form of therapy explores the thoughts that you experience...that little voice...and the impact that it has on both your behaviors and emotional state
Sounds like what I need
that's my impression as well
I have read many books as well, but all they do is make me understand why I am that way and not how to fix it
I would strongly surggest that you consider seeing a therapist who specializes in this approach to treatment but I would also like to offer you a link to workbook that could help in the meantime. Would that be ok?
this workbook has specific exercises for you to engage in that can help you
I know why I am that way...given at birth, absent alcoholic father (adoptive family) first love dies in a car accident...it's not rocket science, yet it is so deabilitating
Pardon any spelling mistakes...I am french
That would be great
no problem in the least...and I would certainly agree with you as to the basis of the issues at hand. One moment and I will get you the link to the book
This is an outstanding book which I typically suggest to my own patients as an adjunct to therapy
I will purchase it

I thought I read that I would be getting answers to my questions via e-mail
I guess it was via chat
yes...its one or the other
ok, I see.
I chose this way to ensure that I answer all your follow up questions
Merci XXXXX XXXXX will purchase that book and get to work on it.
you are most welcome
