Do you give free...

Do you give free advice?

Doctor's Assistant: The Psychologists require payment for their services. It's way less expensive on JustAnswer than face-to-face would cost.

Honestly i just cannot afford a big psyment right now. Im sorry Can i post on the forums for advice?

Doctor's Assistant: How is your mood? Are you experiencing regular sleep disturbances (e.g. trouble falling asleep, waking up early)?

Yes

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the Psychologist should know?

Ive always kind of been a loaner,loser,and slight push over..i have very few friends

Im 21 currently in a 3 and a half year relationship.We keep going back n fourth n i feel like she doesnt love me anymore bdcause of our past of arguements and going back n fourth,when we my dad is probably on his way back to prison im living in my stepmoms basement because i got tired of fighting with my ex n now that im moved away were.still together but when we hang out its not the same....my grandma raised me because my parents made a bunch of bsd decisions in life..im sad and stressed because i moved to colorado to get to know my dad when he was doing good for himself..i left my family back home to start a life in colorado with my girlfriend and now shes distant..my dads doing bad..my family back home is also doing bad.I just feel like nothing can go right n i feel selfish for not being back where i come from,i also feel like my best friend and my girlfriend are way to close
Well, you are not a loser. It sounds like you have been dealt a bad hand though. Your problem is more the people you are surrounded by than it is your self. It is time you take charge of your own life. I'm not sure of your job situation, but you don't need to be dependent on your family. You need to get your own place whether it be in Colorado or back home. Focus on some career goals. Build yourself your own life. Does that make sense?

I sadly stayed up all night thinking about all the stress so im not in a phone talking mood i just have 100 thoughts running through my mind i will contact back
I think your worst critic is yourself. Don't worry about what others think. You are just 21 and are just now getting started on life. As far as your gf and best friend, if they are getting too close, let them have each other. But you said you have difficulty trusting. Maybe that is why you are suspicious of them?Honestly, I don't think we were off subject when discussing your job and housing situation. You need to feel good about yourself. A good job and a place of your own would help you do that.

What Customers are Saying:

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

Corrie MollPretoria, South Africa

I thank-you so much! It really helped to have this information and confirmation. We will watch her carefully and get her in for the examination and US right away if things do not improve. God bless you as well!

ClaudiaAlbuquerque, NM

Outstanding response time less than 6 minutes. Answered the question professionally and with a great deal of compassion.

KevinBeaverton, OR

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
