This is a podcast dedicated to answering your questions about mental health, anxiety, depression, relationships, sex, and life WITHOUT psychobabble BS. I am Dr. Robert Duff, a psychologist from Southern California, but I'm also a regular dude who legitimately wants to help out. I wrote the best selling books Hardcore Self Help: F**k Depression and Hardcore Self Help: F**K Anxiety. Those are available at http://hardcoreselfhelp.com

Episode 233: Rapid Fire Part 2 - Pandemic Alcoholism, All or Nothing Thinking, Bad Pharmacies, and More
Hello, friends! Today I am doing a continuation of the last episode. I'm not at the part today, but I am at home cracking away at the Facebook questions in rapid fire fashion. Hope you enjoy! Here are the questions that I answer:
How do I find a middle ground between 100% positive and 100% negative? What's the plan for getting back to normal alcohol consumption after higher use during the pandemic? How do you get professional help when you're too depressed to ask for help? What should I do about inappropriate pharmacy staff? As always you can send me your questions to email@example.com and be sure to check out the online course if you haven't at kickanxietycourse.com

Episode 232: Rapid Fire Q&A - Sleep Apnea, Dating After Abuse, and More
Hello, everyone! Today's episode is a less prepared version of Q&A than I usually do. The house was a little chaotic, so I took a microphone and recorder to a local park, had a seat, and spontaneously answered some of your questions. All of the questions from today's episode come from the private Hardcore Self Help Facebook group.
