    I am constantly getting looked at strange,

    or being ran from when people find out my major. As if my sole intent is to psychoanalyze everyone I talk to. Or am always being the one talked to without have someone to listen.

    And I absolutely love it!

    I plan on becoming a forensic psychologist in the future and something is pressing me to get into police psychology on the side. I love everything about psychology, even the less appealing subtopics.

    Love psychology, so much.

    But it is a curse if you are newly diagnosed with a mental illness. Im constantly want to research bc I am anxious about symptoms and am genuinely interested in learning more about it but the self diagnosing just adds to anxiety. What a cyclical **** show lol.

    I love studying psychology!

    The workload has been crazy these past few days, critiques, psych reports and researches. I can't even find time to reply to my friends here. But despite all these, it is really an interesting major to take! :) I'd love to hear more from you all!

    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.

    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? :)
