Can an anti-depressant that's worked for you for a long time stop working all the sudden?1Breann2016-07-13 23:31:55
For the longest time, through the grace of God, Welbutrin XL has been the perfect anti-depressant with me. When I was in middle school, I was extremely depressed due to several factors such as parents divorcing, my dog dying, not getting to see my mom. Then I got on Welbutrin and instantly I stopped thinking negative about myself and started thinking only good things about myself. Four years later as a senior in high school all the sudden I am becoming depressed again although I am still on Welbutrin. I am taking a full college load right now through a dual credit program at a community college in North Texas. It's completely affecting my performance in school. I think one of the main reasons my depression came back is because I am so stressed with this psychology class that I am taking. It is an introductory course, but the teacher treats it like it's graduate school psychology. We had to write an eight page paper recently and I haven't been able to get it done. I feel like an idiot because I'm ruining my college GPA. Before this semester started, I had 12 college credits so far with a 4.0 college GPA. Now, I'm either going to make a B or a C in psychology and feel like an idiot. It'll bring down my GPA to a 3.85 or something, which really sucks. I'm a perfectionist if you haven't noticed. I really wanted to graduate with a 4.0 in college, and now that won't be a possibility. But anyways, now I'm all depressed. I've started saying things like "I need to die" or "I want to kill myself." For the past couple years in high school, thanks to my amazing Life Teen program at the Catholic Church I go to, I have truly developed a strong relationship with God. Normally, I always feel the Holy Spirit within me. But lately, these past few weeks I haven't felt God at all and am scared. I feel so alone. I feel like my life is getting ruined. I feel so pathetic. So my question is can an anti-depressant that's always blocked out negative thoughts from your head stop working all the sudden?[View Answers]
Becoming a psychiatrist...?1The One2016-07-13 23:31:49
I will be receiving my BA in Psychology next month. I have been considering becoming a psychiatrist instead of a psychologist. I have applied to a masters program (mental health counseling). Can I continue with my masters and take extra courses to become a psychiatrist or would I have to go back and take the necessary courses to apply to medical school? I do not want to waste more time then needed... Does a psychiatrist make much more than a psychologist?[View Answers]
Does it matter where I get my Bachelor degree if I'm going to go on to get a PhD?1feyi2016-07-13 23:31:45
I'll be getting my Associate of Arts in about a year, and I'm taking this time to decide where I want to go for my Bachelor's of Psychology, and maybe even my Master's and PhD. As it is, there is a university about an hour away from me that offers a BA and BS in Psychology, but is a school that is more for Engineering or Physics majors and the like. They don't even have grad programs for Psychology. However, there is a university about three hours away from me that is one of the better universities in the state for Psychology, and has graduate degrees with several different emphasis (like counseling, clinical, or neurological). I think I would prefer to stay close for a little while longer, then maybe even go out of state for a graduate degree, but I don't know if potential employers look at undergraduate degree locations as much as they do graduate. Help?[View Answers]

What exactly do you have to do during the HPSP?1Mari2016-07-13 23:30:22
I'm sorry if this question sounds stupid, I don't know much information about the HPSP (health professions scholarship program) for the military. I'm only 17 but trying to figure out what exactly I want to do with my future. I plan on getting my PhD in Clinical Psychology and if I enroll in the HPSP after college, my understanding is that after I have completed my service, medical school will be paid for. Now what I want to know is what exactly is a psychologist expected to do whilst in the program? Am I counseling soldiers? Or is the program not specific to one major?[View Answers]

I am almost 16yrs old, female. I will be a junior in high school this yr. I need to settle down &look into some careers b/c my highschool offers great career programs.

Major selection?0Ariza2012-11-06 07:12:57
I am trying to decide between psychology and English with a teaching concentration. My friends all tell me I would be a good teacher, and my parents say I should be a psychologist like my uncle. I've read into both a lot, and they both interest me. The trouble is, the teaching program is really intense, so I can't switch back and forth after my sophomore year.[View Answers]

GPA of 3.39, sophomore, want to get into a Clinical Psyc PhD program?0kmk2012-11-06 06:26:04
I'm currently freaking out but I need to be slapped more with reality for more motivation... I'm a Sophomore in college, Psychology/French minor and have a GPA of 3.39. However, this last semester (Spring, Sophomore) I may have done worse due to relationship issues and this really difficult class I took that I didn't bring myself to drop out of. I really want to study depression and substance abuse and am currently entering a research lab for the next two years (this would make a total of 6 semester working in labs) for clinical psychology (other two were cognitive psychology/neuroscience) dealing with the topic. I'm planning to write a scholarly paper for it and also planning to volunteer tons during the summer. I'm studying for the GRE from now. I'm very nervous about the competition but I want to succeed, I want at least a 3.8 GPA to be more competitive but I feel like I will never make it. Any tips/suggestions?[View Answers]
What Do You Think of a Person that Had a DUI at age 19?0iormares2012-11-06 05:57:01
I was convicted of DUI at age 19. I started drinking when I went off to college. I was raped and my boyfriend at the time called me a whore and didn't believe that I was raped. The attacker told everyone it was consensual I was called a slut and whore by all these people I didn't know. I started drinking to cope... Anyways, I know that in no way excuses what I did. I feel terrible. I think about it every day. I wish I could go back in time. However, I am not a senior in college and have a 3.8. I am going to apply to a PhD program in clinical psychology/women's studies so I can help rape victims and other various people with mental health issues. Anyways, is my life over because I had a DUI at 19?I am so ashamed about it.[View Answers]

Question about graduate school specializations?0Danni2012-11-06 05:39:59
I was wondering if your graduate school concentration or major I guess you might call it necessarily has to match your undergraduate major. Right now, I am a psychology major with a minor in mathematics and I'm planning on going to graduate school, hopefully to become a professor. I would rather go to graduate school for mathematics as opposed to psychology, but I'm not sure if I can since it's only my minor. I have taken many math courses, anywhere from calculus and trigonometry to complex real analysis and applied combinatorics, so I feel that I would be well-prepared for a grad program in math, but Im almost apprehensive even to apply with the degree in psychology I will receive. Just for background information, I've considered going for a double-major in psychology and math, but i don't have the time at this point since I only picked up math during my sophomore year. I will without a doubt be able to finish the minor though. Can I still apply to a grad program in math with my current degree path? Thanks.[View Answers]
Which college do you think is better? University of Maine in Farmington OR University of Southern Maine?0Ingrid2012-11-06 05:28:47
I'm from Vermont, but I want to attend college in Maine. I'm a junior so I have some time to reach a final decision. There's two colleges in Maine that really interest me: University of Maine in Farmington and University of Southern Maine. And there's two career options that really interest me: Psychology and Pre-Med. If I choose to major in psych is one of the colleges that I named have a better program than the other? What about for pre-med? If there's anyone who has attended either of these schools or is in enrolled in one of them right now, could you tell me a bit about what you like about it? I'm going to visit each of these colleges within the next couple of months. I'm going to Farmington in less than two weeks. I just want to know what I should expect on campus and such. Thanks for answering!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!![View Answers]
