This is Dr. David
I am sorry you are having these issues.
it can be hard to show emotion
it can be hard to change your schedule and be flexible.
it sounds like you should be talking to a doctor or a therapist about these issues to get the most benefit
would you be willing to talk to a doctor or a therapist to get a better handle on your issues and to work towards improvement?
Its not that i have trouble showing emotion , its that i don't have the emotion that i should. Frustration is about the only thing i can muster. It's not a case of not being able to be flexible, not like having more than a few things to do, although that is the case ; its not where the issues are coming from. Sorry. this may not of been the place to come . Very difficult to put in to words
it might be easier for you to talk to a therapist face to face
rather than type in your symptoms.
are you willing to see a therapist?
maybe at some point. my partner is at work currently . i thought maybe i could get some assistance with out her being involved, difficult to explain to her or anyone with out sensing some sort of amusement or confusion from them
therapist are professional listeners.
they study the mind and psychology and take all patients seriously.
so there will be no amusement.
do i organise this via my local gp?
yes, your GP can refer you to talk to a therapist.
just ask your GP.
thank you, ***** ***** contact them soon
you are welcome
best of luck to you

do you see the ratings area below?
I do , however without trying to offend. Im not sure if i have had an answer - I thought from asking a question in mental health section that i would have some sort suggestion. Apart from "you should be talking to a doctor or therapist" . This obviously is is good advise and appreciated; but, It is what i thought i was doing . sorry
well, I will need more of your symptoms from you to help suggest a condition or issue.
you are having difficulty expressing your symptoms.
you told me that you struggle mentally.
that you have a lot of frustration.
have difficulty with clarity of mind.
have a hard time adjusting your mind when plans change.
you don't function like most people.
sorry for my rating.. . it is the the service and not yourself i am rating
no, you are rating me
I get negative ratings left on my record.
what questions do you have?
ok.. What is it if i can only look at things logically with no emotion attached . does this make me just a bad person?
no, that does not make you a bad person.
but every person has both logic and emotion.
you do have emotion inside.
but it can be hard for some people to express their feelings and emotion.
frustration is an emotion.
anger is an emotion.
i know this is what confuses me . I love my kids and partner but if something bad happens i would be scared that would be unable to have an emotional reaction. my partner comments on this and it offends her that i don't
sounds like you would benefit from relationship counseling and both going to the therapist as well.
women often are more in touch with their emotions and feelings much more than men.
she needs to understand this as well.
and that you do have emotions, but just because you don't show it doesn't mean you are a bad person.
I have trouble learning from other peoples methods and prefer to retreat and teach my self in solitude, this is partly why i don't drive . there are many things in my life that i am realising more now that i am not able to do things the way that others do.
This all worked well when i was on my own , its only now that it has been highlighted . i am struggling
that is ok you don't do things like other people
that is fine.
but it sounds like a relationship issue between you and your partner as well.
both of you would benefit from seeing a couples counselor.
and talking about your relationship
maybe , Im just finding it hard to live the way my mind allows me too whilst being with someone, which would mean its my fault . can't explain to her what i need for me to operate well with her taking it seriously. I thought maybe with something to call it would make it easier. Not sure there is a name for it now though, just that im weird i suppose
it is not your fault.
in a relationship, there is no one at fault
there is only good communcation or lack of communication.
and good times in the relationship or bad times.
perhaps she might not be the right person for you if she does not understand your way of thinking
or if you don't feel able to explain yourself to her.
you need to explain to her how you feel
if you don't explain it to her, she will never understand
and this will put a wedge in the relationship
and the relationship will suffer because of it.
true, i will try . Thank you . do you still think its worth speaking to someone about my own issues?
yes, it is worth speaking to a therapist.
it might help you express your feelings better to yourself and to your partner.
thank you. sorry for before ; i will leave good feed back .
