having seaweed rub against u when ur swimming in the ocean is like having satan slowly caress ur legs and toes while smiling creepily at u and whispering “mayonnaise”
I feel so uncomfortable
this is one of the funniest things i’ve ever read
so here’s a riddle
my roommate used to work a hotel in central minnesota and she did mostly overnights, where she was alone most of the time and if anything went down, she had to handle it herself.
so a woman calls the front desk and asks roomie to investigate a bug that she found in her room while taking a shower. when roomie gets there, guest 1 and guest 2 are both sitting on the beds, guest 1 with only a towel on and guest 2 kinda freaking out because apparently the bug bit guest 1 and the bite was swelling up
so roomie goes into the bathroom and moves the curtain and there is a giant green thing about half the length of her forearm (she has long arms) chilling in the tub. roomie grabs a towel and wraps it up like a boss, and then calls and ambulance because she’s not really sure the swelling bite is a good thing
the emts tell her it’s a grasshopper and she was like “tHAT WAS NO GRASSHOPPER”
i’ve tried looking at bug sites but it’s kind of a clusterfuck and doesn’t help that if you google “giant green caterpillar minnesota” you get a cute neon wiggly that does not bite
it was kind of a surreal experience and sometimes i wonder if roomie wasn’t having some really weird dreams
Someone finally did it
the perfect mashup
I knew in trusting you, I had made the correct decision…

Amazing Face-Paintings Transform Models Into The 2D Works Of Famous Artists

Psychologists ask questions based on the issue that the patient came in with. These are usually very simple, one sentence things. For example, a person stuck in a psychosis could come in with the complaint about their positive and negative symptoms, and the psychologist would start asking questions based on that complaint. Depending on the person and who they are, the psychologist could then decide that the complaint that the person came in with was only the result of a deeper issue, which will simply be found out through questions about preference, mother, father, sibling relationship, sexuality and how they feel about sex, how they experienced their childhood, how they do in school, etc.
A simple question to start with can be as simple as “how was your day?” Not all questions have to be deep, nor do all answers have to be deep, but all information is useful in the whole. If diagnoses should be made, it’s based on patterns unqualified people don’t notice, but professionals do. And sometimes, it all has to do with intuition.
When I first came in, it was because of my psychosis, which I had been suffering from for the past ten years. After three or four sessions spanning three to four week, I was asked to participate in a six-hour psych-eval; this psych-eval would include an intelligence test and questionnaires, so, so many questionnaires. The IQ test took about 2 hours and the other 4 hours were dedicated to questionnaires; some via a computer and some via paper. They were questionnaires about depression, about personality disorders, about psychotic disorders, even one about autism. Basically, they just threw nearly every diagnostic criteria at my head via questionnaires and let the computer tell me which disorders stuck out most, based on my answers.
I didn’t make the default screening for schizoid personality disorder and obsessive-compulsive personality disorder, and they also diagnosed me with psychotic disorder NOS (not otherwise specified, nowadays called unspecified psychotic disorder).
From that moment on, for a year long, I got intensive CBT (cognitive behavioural therapy), which included me having to read up on schema therapy, me having to know about personality disorders and about psychotic disorders (slowly my therapy turned more into informal schooling, due to the fact that my psychologist was eager to teach me and I was eager to learn, all with tiny pop quizzes, but that’s not important). After a year, my psychologist saw no change in my schizoid personality disorder, even though the CBT should’ve done its work, and she told me she thought I might even be autistic.
Now, I told you that part of my psych-eval included a questionnaire based on autism, and I scored 22 on it. You’d think that’s a lot, but usually, people with autism score 32 on it, and even then it doesn’t necessarily mean a diagnosis. Regardless, she told me that Asperger’s Syndrome and my current diagnosis (schizoid personality disorder with obsessive-compulsive personality features) had many, many overlaps, and so she asked me if I was okay with finding out if maybe I did, in fact, have autism.
I went to a different psychologist, specialised in the diagnosis of autism and she made three appointments; since I already had the 6-hour psych-eval, it was now just to take my history, both from me and from someone close to me, who was, in my case, my mother.
My current diagnosis is Asperger’s Syndrome with psychotic disorder NOS (unspecified psychotic disorder), which, since it’s not treatable, the therapy was simply me having to learn and memorise everything there was to know about autism.
Needless to say, a diagnosis isn’t the be-all-end-all. The psychologist asks questions and takes the patient through the psychotherapy (coming to grips with some issues, even if they may be hard to admit or face). Psychotherapy is there, not only to make the person face problematic issues in their mind or their life, but also to give the person a person to talk to, someone they can trust. The bond between patient and therapist can, therefore, become very intimate, because potentially, you’re telling this person all your thoughts, you’re laying yourself bare and having to come to grips with certain things that you may have been hiding from or denying. Sometimes it’s painful. It’s hard and it can be very scary.
What questions are asked or how the psychologist deals with different patients depends entirely on the situation, on the disorder and on the person. I once read that psychology is less of a science and more of an art, and nothing could be more true. I can’t tell you which questions are asked, because it’s different every session, for every person, and for every disorder.
As for patient-psychologists, it’s the exact same for a patient-doctor. They try to treat themselves, but when it comes to mental health, every psychologist (or even people who have studied psychology) knows that, no matter how well you know your psychology, sometimes you need someone else to pull you out of the well you’re stuck in. You simply can’t psychotherapise yourself.
