I'm #traumatized by #moriasrace project. A movie I did in #b3d. For the last few months I got so miserable that I literally didn't mind dying from #laziness. I think the reason for it is that I expected the movie to be this hit that will bring me a lot of attention and praise. But nothing came even close to what I imagined. 3 and half years of life were spent making it and it just simply exists. Nobody gives a damn. I need to see a #psychiatrist.
In my email I told her she could have my jewelry except for me watched and my dad's Rosary. Those she should send to Joanie
I walked into my room and this was how my dresser looked. I guess I was prepared to not return
This is why they want me to see a #psychiatrist but I can't find one. I want to stop seeing Dr Michelle. I think we failed and I'm not sure how to proceed at this point

Get yourself a #psychiatrist so he can help you with character development 😂
I wrote an article about Barbie after an interview with psychiatrist/cultural theorist Dr. Jeanne Randolph for the #MedicalPost/#CanadianHealthcare Network. It's free for #doctors, #pharmacists in #Canada. But here are few salient paragraphs.
"Dr. Randolph is both a #psychiatrist and a cultural theorist who uses a psychoanalytic lens when looking at icons such as Barbie. Studying #Barbie provokes questions about toys' contribution to the #health and ethics in #kids.
Indeed, back in the 1990s, she wrote a chapter for a book, Consuming Fashions: Adorning the Trans-National Body, that included details of a small study she conducted investigating how girls treated their Barbie dolls. The book itself included historical psychological and anthropological aspects of fashion.
What she found in wasn’t pretty.
Indeed, it was common for girls to cut off Barbie’s hair, paint them, poke or burn holes in them, twist their head around backwards, remove limbs, or even swap their head with other dolls.
But, she told the Medical Post, it's healthy for young kids to express aggressive or sadistic behaviours through their toys. It helps them cope with, and understand, their aggression in the long run—better than keeping it all bottled up and having it expressed in something real.
One moment, Barbie is a super model, an ideal parent or a brilliant astronaut, the next she might be beating up other toys, joining a biker gang, or holding up banks. Young kids learn about themselves and the world around them through play, she said.
For a long time, Barbie was marketed with an image of femininity that was devoid of aggression.
Barbie represented a huge cultural shift when she was first introduced in 1959. Prior to that, girls were given dolls that looked like babies, making their play limited to that as moms or caregivers—a fact the new movie points out.
Barbie was the first adult doll girls could identify with, Dr. Randolph said. They could expand the roles they played—except she was presented an exaggerated version of some idealized female form with her tall, slender proportions.
“In a way, Barbie was asking for it. It’s like the Barbie doll is so perfect, so unrealistic that she incited children to resent her or to be anxious because she’s not real,” she said. Hence some of the destructive behaviour.
Yet doing things like removing a Barbie’s head doesn’t mean a child will grow up a sociopath. Often, it’s just because the heads are easy to remove, and more of an exploration of how things work.
When she wrote about Barbie for that book chapter in the 1990s, Dr. Randolph wanted to include a picture of the doll. She looked for an advertising image that showed some aggression in Barbie, but the best she could find was an image of a fishing Barbie holding a large, plastic dead fish. The fish had a smile on it.
She wrote the toy company that produced Barbie for permission to use the image.
“I got a letter back from Mattel’s lawyers. They had read my chapter all about sadism and about how Barbie is asking for it, the doll is too perfect. They said I should seek legal council. They said they entirely rejected the negativity of this chapter and that Barbie is a valuable product which they did not want to be seen in this light,” she said.
There was always a disconnect between how Barbie was marketed and how little girls played with her.
The chapter was published, and the letter from Mattel was included in its entirety in a footnote.
However, the new Barbie movie showed a turnabout in recognition of the dichotomy Barbie represents. It acknowledged the imaginary, perfect world Barbie comes from, the cultural impact of Barbie dolls, that in real-life Barbies are mistreated, that many kids have cynical attitudes about Barbie, and also that some people love her.

Tauranga Hospital doctors’ strike: Senior staff ‘want to feel valued’ after three-year ‘pay freeze’
considering #neurodiversity as a form of biological functional division of #labor, just as in bee colonies, where roles vary naturally, embracing diverse abilities over social hierarchy would lead to a more inclusive workplace.
Grew up as a #queer, #neurodiverse, #Mormon kid and went through "#conversiontherapy" in my teens. I'm writing a book using my story and professional experience as a child, adolescent, and adult #psychiatrist to highlight the harms of maintaining traditions that are rooted in #bias, hierarchy, and intolerance. I plan to provide a framework for evolving from intolerance of #diversity to fully embracing the diversity within ourselves and others. Pre-sale starting Sep 2023! Share if this resonates.
Could there be upsides to being a #psychopath?
It may be that all of us have a little #psychopathology inside—with some positives.
In The Mask of Sanity, US #psychiatrist #HerveyCleckley set personality profile of psychopath: superficially charming but egocentric and untrustworthy who conceals an #antisocial core. A psychopathic businessman, for instance, who worked hard and appeared normal except for bouts of marital infidelity, callousness, wild drinking and risk-taking

‘Caged Animal’ #Trump May Need a ‘Secure Padded Cell’ as Trial Progresses: #Psychiatrist
Thinking about #University starting in a week and the fact that I HAVE to write two #exams this semester while not even being able to muster one exam last semester, even though I feel worse right now than I did last semester 😵💫 pLEASE ms. #psychiatrist, do some wonders, dial my #antidepressants in, cast some spells and make me feel better /hj
Me: "What if the person who abused you did it in such a manner that they played out the symptoms of their personality disorder?"
Someone: "Your reply is why you're part of the problem."
Me: "Are you being serious right now?"
Someone: "Ugh. Fuck off."
As a person who tends to believe that abusive people, regardless of their #psychopathology, do not deserve my #empathy as a #survivor of #trauma, I'm trying really hard not to internalize the following lesson:
People with Cluster B personality disorders who claim that identifying their personality disorder is a form of ableism are using leftist language in order to justify and excuse their abusive behavior.
My last abuser loved using leftist language as a way of silencing the victims of their abusive behavior. They once set a #boundary that no one could claim that their bad #behavior was #manipulative because it was a #trigger for their trauma, which was actually a perverse way of preventing anyone who cared about them from calling them out when they did behave abusively.
Ironically, and disgustingly, the individual about who I'm speaking tonight once convinced me that someone who had abused them had lied about how abusive they were in order to punish them for refusing to be victimized any further. I believed them. Now, I really wonder whether that was ever true. It makes me wonder whether my abuser says that about me, that I was their true abuser. I wonder how many people like me believe them. And I'm really trying not to wonder about such things because it's a waste of energy I could be using to create content and joy.
Anyway, I hate making generalizations, and I really want to believe that even though Western #psychology doesn't know how to help people #heal from any Cluster B personality disorder aside from #BPD (thank you, Marsha #Linehan), that these people are still human beings capable of being more than just scary and dangerous.
I want to believe that. But each time this happens, I believe it a little bit less. I imagine at some point, I'll have to admit that my faith in them was wrong, and I hurt myself repeatedly by believing in people that I never should have believed in.
Gods, I hate it when people cause me to lose faith in them. It feels really fucking awful to fear a group of people for something out of their control. But I also know that I'm forgiving (read: stupid) enough that if I met a new person right now with an official #diagnosis of #NPD, I'd treat them like any other person and be obnoxiously surprised when it turned out they behaved like I should have expected a narcissist to.
There is a confounding factor in that the person I had to deal with tonight claimed to have a personality disorder and also to distrust the mental health system so much that they refused to have anything to do with it. Unfortunately, this means that they were not receiving any kind of #treatment for their #mental #health issues, and this is something that this person has in common with my abuser.
So, maybe a more fair statement than the one above is:
People with Cluster B personality disorders who refuse to engage in any kind of treatment for their mental health and also claim that identifying their personality disorder is a form of ableism are using leftist language in order to justify and excuse their abusive behavior.
This statement allows the individual with the personality disorder to have made a #choice. And that choice, insofar as humans are their behavior towards others, applies not only to personality disorders, but very much to #PTSD and trauma survivors.
This is why I don't think that I have any place to argue that I was good or deserved positive treatment during my self-serving enabling of others' narcissistic abuse by my abuser. I made a choice, and it was a hard choice not to make, but it was a choice I made. Even if I had no control over the choice, I was still not a safe person to be around because of my loyalty to such a selfish and capricious person. Yeah, I had a #therapist, but I also wasn't great at keeping appointments then (probably for significant, non-time-management-related reasons that I'm only recently beginning to understand).
Compare that to now, when I have few qualms about ending #toxic relationships, a stronger sense of personal #identity, and a supportive and constructive #social #support group. And when I'm seeing a therapist and #psychiatrist regularly and religiously because I understand how much it benefits me and have been consistently #healing from my trauma as evidenced by reports from the people that know me and that see me day in and day out.
As much as I hate making generalizations, I find I'm generally OK with making ones that I can easily and appropriately apply to myself. So that's something.
good morning, friends! I have a session with my #psychiatrist in a few minutes, and I'm desperately trying to remember what we discussed last time so I can remember if I did it at all 🙃🙃🙃
also I still haven't done the blood draw so my iron and vitamins D & B12 can be tested, and she sent the order for the blood test after our first session 😅🤣🙃
I'm sure it's fine ... anyway, more after the appointment
good morning, friends and Mastodonians!
I did finally wash a couple dishes last night and make instant mashed potatoes. I think I'm having the second half for breakfast, bc idk what else to have ...
goals & stuff:
- grocery order
- wash dishes
- #psychiatrist (virtual) appt in 3 hours
- eat something
✅ clear off my desk before my video visit
idk, y'all, I'm tired. I have roughly zero motivation. I could really use like an aide or something, but 🤷🏻🙃
Thank you for this day. 🌇

@herecomesthestatic But hey, I am safe. I live in a #socialdemocracy, I have access to a #psychiatrist, #psychologist, #meds, #ergotherapy (where I learned #painting), I #game, am a bit struggling with #socialretreat & yes, the money is often not enough, especially when my kitty needs to go to the vet, and yes, #schizophrenia fgs your life, no joke. But I do not want to complain, though I gotta say, in respect of anyone else, even I fall through the social net. So yes, #schizophrenics need help.
Here it comes, my #introduction:
I'm a #psychiatrist and #psychotherapist in training working in a hospital in the middle of a big german metropolis. Professionally, I'm interested in the impact of the #climateCrisis on #mentalHealth.
According to this website where you can learn about your surname, I am one of four notable Bradnam’s:
“Keith Bradnam, British psychiatrist and researcher with The Royal College of Psychiatrists”
I *was* a researcher and I now work at RCPsych…but not as a #psychiatrist. Wonder how I ended up on this page???
Hi folks! Here is my #introductionpost. I am a #neuroscientist & #psychiatrist based in NYC. I started a lab at Columbia in 2021 focused on how #stress disrupts the #brain #circuits that govern social, cognitive & reward seeking #behavior. We use #electrophysiology & #optogenetics in freely moving mice to study how dynamic #neural activity, eg, #oscillations yield insight into #susceptibility #resilience #anhedonia & new treatments. I also post about #cooking. #twitterMigration #NeuroMastodons
A small #introduction.
I'm here hoping to find like-minded individuals and colleagues, to learn a lot, and to have fun!
Well this is exciting... my #introduction: I am a #psychiatrist and #neuroscientist at #UCL studying #psychosis and #schizophrenia mainly - I use #computationalpsychiatry methods to try to infer neurobiological changes from brain imaging data, and also to understand how cognitive processes going awry could lead to symptoms like delusions and hallucinations. I'm also interested in so-called #functionalsymptoms, #AI, #OCD, #machinelearning, #activeinference and lots of arty stuff too...
