Dr. Marlene N. Kasman PHD's Expert Contributions
I recommend seeing a psychologist who works with anxiety. They can teach you relaxation exercises and work with you in therapy to address the sources of the anxiety. Additionally, there are meds that can reduce the symptoms but I would suggest the above recommendations first. Marlene N. Kasman, PhD READ MORE
I see being in touch with your emotions as a good thing. Men are unfortunately socialized to suppress their feelings while women are allowed to have and express them. Maybe you are not just getting older, but are also getting better. My only concern would be if you are only reacting to sad experiences. In that case, I would be concerned that you are depressed and would recommend that you meet with a psychologist or other mental health professional for a consultation. Dr. Marlene Kasman READ MORE
Learning disability means that a person does not function equally well in all areas. Some skills may be very strong while another areas of competence may be quite low. I help people identify their strengths and develop coping skills to compensate for their weaknesses. READ MORE
Are you underweight? I am wondering whether you have an eating disorder. If your weight is normal, I would recommend that you see an endocrinologist. Perhaps you have a hormonal issue. In any case, you deserve to feel better that you do at present. Marlene N. Kasman, PhD READ MORE
Yes, you sound very depressed. Teenaged years are difficult under the best of circumstances. I would advise you to speak to your parents or another adult that you can trust. You need to see mental health professionals immediately. Please don't delay seeking the help that you deserve. READ MORE
Your unconscious is tryin to work something out. Perhaps you are dealing with guilt over some feelings or actions or feeling that you do not deserve to live. Maybe your symptoms are related to your family history. In any case psychotherapy would be helpful in understanding your panic attacks and freeing yourself of these distressing symptoms. READ MORE
It is called post partum depression. I recommend scheduling some short-term counseling ASAP. A new baby creates major changes for a mother. Sleep deprivation itself has its impact, as does a rearrangement of priorities of time, energy, and responsibility for both parents. These issues should be addressed and not ignored. Marlene N. Kasman, PhD, Licensed Psychologist READ MORE
Absolutely, especially if you are predisposed to alcoholism. I would recommend that you get yourself tp an AA program ASAP. If your problem is severe you might have to consider a short in-patient program. Marlene N. Kasman READ MORE
I think a 7-year-old is too young to be part of the beginning processes of a divorce. He/she is already experiencing enough disruption. On the other hand, after the particulars are worked out, they might benefit from from a family session to talk about how he will be affected by the divorce and as an opportunity to express fears and feelings. Marlene N. Kasman, PhD READ MORE
Often, it is the general theme or feeling in a dream that is more significant than the exact context. For example, in your dream, you may be feeling something related to loss or even aging. Think also about how you felt in the dream or when you woke up. They may also be clues to what was going on in your unconscious. Dr. Kasman READ MORE
It can help him if he is motivated to discuss issues that might be troubling him. Marlene N. Kasman, PhD, Licensed Psychologist READ MORE
