Common Questions and Answers about Social anxiety freud


Avatar m tn I am 15 and was officially diagnosed with Social Anxiety (finally) about 5 months ago even though I've had anxiety since year 8/ early year 9 (don't know what that is in American system - sorry). I noticed the gas thing last year and IT ONLY SEEMS TO HAPPEN AT SCHOOL! I am so self-conscious about it. It doesn't affect my life as greatly as it seems to affect everyone else's on this website but it really affects my learning. About 70% of my time in lessons is spent on me focusing on the gas.
Avatar f tn Some of the folks on that list,such as John Madden, suffer a very specific anxiety; in his case, flying. John goes everywhere in his big bus. And some are active in talking about their panic; Willard Scott is a good example. Oddly missing (and just plain odd) is Stephen King, whose subject matter is the realm of the terrifying, fancy that. He tells a funny story about his first meeting with his publisher -who was at that time reveiwing King's manuscript.
952564 tn?1268372247 It was inconclusive because I'm weird. I am a social person but I am also very reclusive and shy. So, because of that it came out inconclusive. I answered all questions honestly. I think that's kind of silly, like it is trying to put everyone into perfect little boxes even though we are so different.. All it could tell me was that I deffinately have a mood disorder.
Avatar n tn Religious repression as much as anything led to modern psychology -- see the almost always but not always wrong Freud -- so if this is your culture, it can create an overreaction because you can't just get what you really want and nature has programmed you to want.
Avatar f tn (You will enjoy reading Sigmund Freud). This is the nature of the anxiety in children. They are growing up. And growing up is a very painful process. They are faced with new rules and regulations at every corner. Ran out of thoughts.....
3060903 tn?1398568723 The self-psychology practitioner will thus emphasize the role of empathic listening in treating clients. Social-Learning Therapy Social-learning therapy is an active teaching approach to helping clients improve relationship and social skills. The therapist models desirable behavior for clients, who then mimic the behavior.
Avatar n tn Psychological effects are a result from a persons social environment, environmental settings, and moods. I like to use social and environmental settings because this is the major influence in a persons recovery. From a Freudian perspective, behavior is learned. Within a persons environment there can exist societal norms that enable a person to use drugs. This can consist of friends, relatives, neighbors, and even doctors.
1237757 tn?1323146719 They tend to be quiet, low-key, deliberate, and disengaged from the social world. Their lack of social involvement should not be interpreted as shyness or depression; the introvert simply needs less stimulation than an extravert and prefers to be alone. The independence and reserve of the introvert is sometimes mistaken as unfriendliness or arrogance. In reality, an introvert who scores high on the agreeableness dimension will not seek others out but will be quite pleasant when approached.
366811 tn?1217426272 It is a real eye opener and important information especially for people who have panic/anxiety issues. Do you want all your personal information out there? This also, shows you how important it is to use a "forum name" rather than your real name. Even with this said, some people have a definite style of writing and because of that, can be recognized easily.
1263071 tn?1270297845 she thought I was reporting symptoms that were caused by depression or anxiety, neither of which I was experiencing. It took me almost 2 years to get diagnosed from the time of that first brain MRI full of lesions after an episode of acute-onset tremors. I finally got diagnosed on my first appointment with my 4th neurologist (who was my second MS specialist).

147426 tn?1317269232 Well, I am all lathered up about people being told their neurologic symptoms are in their heads, caused by anxiety, or caused by hyper-awareness of our bodily sensations. It seems we have a new one almost every day. I consider this attitude by physicians to be one of two things. It is either pure arrogance such that if they don't know the answer then the patient must be weak-minded or it is a chauvinistic attitude toward women.
Avatar m tn AFTER being sober for a couple of years I went to a different psych dr. - reason was for anxiety, depression, and total emotional craziness due to HepC treatment, BUT they were very gentle with me (as I was also VERY reluctant to live like a zombie again) and they helped me thru the HepC treatment, and I've chosen to stay on the Paxil (lowest dose they make) and I feel more emotionally 'sound' than I ever have before withOUT feeling numb.
Avatar m tn have you ever heard of the Oedipus complex postulated by Sigmund Freud? This occurs around age 3 or 4 when a female begins to become attracted to her father and a male to his mother. According to Frued, if children do not reslove this stage they become stuck..or fixated..that is they may later develop into neurosis, paedophilia, and homosexuality.
1453183 tn?1287852619 No more prefrontal lobotomies - right? They have gone the way of the routine removal of tonsils. And Freud has fallen into disfavor. Indeed he has. Psychology is not a true science and is extremely fallible. Let's not forget that.
376008 tn?1312484756 I know that he sometimes suffers form mild anxiety and we've spoken with and had him recently seen by a child Psychologist because he gets frustrated very easily and can be very very hard on himself. At any rate, he is much better than he was 2 years ago, but it does still occur. As I said, PATIENCE seems to be the key. And I most certainly think it was important to explain to him the physical harm that he can cause himself when doing this.
3197167 tn?1348972206 Just like with depression or anxiety disorders, doctors can look at brain scans and can SEE that they are different, but they cannot fully understand WHY. They suspect that causes could be genetic, environmental, etc. Nothing is "nailed down", which makes it frustrating. Anything involving the brain is largely a mystery. Hopefully one day that will change.
Avatar n tn I know child development according to Piaget, Erickson, Freud, just to name a few...I know about cognitive development, social, emotional, behavioral, and then please, don't try to get into a "debate" with will surely lose. Not being judgemental? Pointing out the obvious? Probably obvious to you and those who think just like you. No room for others opinions. To Peek-a-Who....thank you for your comments.
Avatar m tn In general, hypomania is not severe enough to cause notable problems in social activities, work or to necessitate hospitalization, and there are no psychotic features. Indeed, hypomania is a rich and delightful state in many ways: energy, confidence, joy. With another medication cocktail in 2010 I felt I had obtained the best of all possible worlds: some hypomania and a balance of energies.
173930 tn?1196341998 Then I think I'm going to have to look into semi-retirement or a new career. In another two years or so I'll be eligible for social security, which combined with some part-time gigs might support me - unfortunately NOT in the south of France or Tuscany as I'd always hoped. I had always figured I'd never retire, simply reduce the number of weeks I worked. To not be able to do so is quite depressing. Maybe I'll feel better by this time next year. Sure hope so, and hope all of you do too.
