    The Best Medicine For Lovers - Psychology

    No! I'm not talking about romantic partners or physical intimacy. I'm talking about individuals that were given the ability to love the unloveable unconditionally and selflessly... These individuals are the true lovers of this world. What does this have to do with Psychology...

    A Way of Life

    I decided to be a psychology major because I wasn't sure what I wanted to do. As I finished out my first two semesters of college I also added on an International Relations degree and a minor in law, this added about 3 more years to my supposed 4 year program, meaning I would be...

    Psychology means the world to me,

    especially abnormal psychology. I really want to help people someday, but I am getting so discouraged lately. I would love to meet others who are psych majors; maybe we can help each other out? :)

    And I Really Like It

    I've been really interested in psychology since I was about 16 or 17, abnormal psychology especially. I wanted to become a psychologist but, honestly, I really don't want to be in school forever (I would want to get a Ph.D, not just a Master's degree). Plus, I'm not sure if being...

    The Future

    I need help. This doesn't involve myself,

    but I'd like someone to vent with and could possibly diagnose a family member of mine. It scares me on what she's doing and I need help. Maybe just someone to tell me what they think is going on. Just something to lead me. Thank you, and please contact me if you can help.
