New Beginnings – My First EMDR Therapy Session

Do I have a sense of entitlement?

I’ve wondered if I might have entitlement issues. “Entitlement” is a buzzword, and it’s a quality that has bothered me in others, so I want to be conscious of if I may have a sense of entitlement myself. As the youngest child in my family, I wonder if I might be spoiled, which is part [...]

What is Asperger’s and Should I Get Evaluated?

I’m not good enough and I don’t know why

That means that it falls under the heading of personality disorders, which are typically treatment resistant. Okay, have I bored you yet? Sorry, I’m a psychology nerd.
