I'm sorry, I love you Dr. Mike but supporting someone who has publicly sided with a rapist is messed up. And to do it in a mental health video is even worse.

What sucks about the insurance system is that non-profits who depend on insurance or Medicaid we have to diagnose at the first appointment so that we can get paid to continue treatment for the clients :( in my agency we will try to get a diagnosis but it acts as a “living document” meaning that we can change the diagnosis as we work with the client

This video is everything & more, but can we please get a Doctor Mike segment on the channel where he brings YouTubers on the show & starts a conversation about their biggest pet peeves, concerns & the importance of better health all around surrounded by the topic of general health (physical/mental).

As a therapist and advocate for integrated health, I have to say that I truly appreciate this video. I love that Dr. Mike is aware of the correlation between mental and physical health. Many times, I have clients with mental health concerns which have manifested as physical ailments. Once we address the mental health, the physical symptoms decrease dramatically. I've also found the opposite to be true. I've had a client with extreme anxiety who I encouraged to get a physical. I had met with the client and obtained their history and something they said told me to recommend they see their doctor. Turned out they were extremely anemic and needed infusions. Once this happened, they were fine. I've also seen people diagnosed with acute psychosis turn out to have high or low blood sugar. I feel strongly about the importance of integrated care and I hope that videos like this one will improve communication between mental health providers and the medical community. Thank you, Dr. Mike!

I'm only 15 my mental health hasn't been good for like over a year I got bullied for 2 years I thought I was fine but I started hating myself thought I was worthless I have cut before I'm getting counseling they asked me If I have hurt myself before but for some reason I just couldn't tell then I was scared

jazzy _btsjimin I’m 28 and when I was your age I was self harming and actually attempted suicide. I understand what it’s like to be honest about something so private and it is scary. I completely agree with you. However, if you truly want help and want to be better, honesty is always the best route. I’m not a doctor, nurse, psychologist or psychiatrist so you totally don’t have to listen to me. But being honest with my therapist helped me so much and it allowed me to receive the help I needed to be where I am today. I’m healthier and deal with my stress and issues in a much healthier way and am in school to be a psychologist and help young people who feel how you do! Being bullied sucks and feeling worthless sucks even more. You are more than a conqueror and you are a great person! Don’t ever let anyone make you feel less than great! I’m praying for you! Best of luck and I hope you get the help you need! God bless ❤️

In regards to the NPD part, my grandma was for sure NPD and my mom grown up with that echoes the traits. And I myself have been working on the traits I have been conditioned into. Her traits have become so bad that my mom doesn't have friends and many other things.

"Then a woman said, Speak to us of Joy and Sorrow.
And he answered:
Your joy is your sorrow unmasked.
And the salfsame well from which your laughter rises was oftentimes filled your tears.
And how else can it be?
The deeper that sorrow carves into being, the more joy you can obtain. Is not the cup that holds your wine the very cup that was burned in the potter's oven?
And is not the lute that soothes your spirit, the very wood that was hollowed with knives?
When you are joyous, look deep into your heart and you shall find it is only that which has given you sorrow that is giving you joy.
When you are sorrowful look again in your heart, and you shall see that in truth you are weeping for that which has been your delight." -Kahlil Gibran; excerpt from The Prophet

You should make a family practice in Palm Beach Florida or Dr. Mike app. Your great at explaining medical information and not going to the quick fast diagnosis and you obviously put real time into your work. Your passion is seen and appreciated. I have lost lots of faith in doctors due to the quick fast diagnosis. Your helping me see there are still GOOD DOCTORS. I know thats horrible to say and I can't say my experience and feelings are straight across the board there are good and bad in everything we just need more Dr. Mike's in this world.

Hi, this is my real name. I'm 21 years old. I don't know what it feels like to be happy. It sounds depressing, or even "clickbaity" but I can explain a bit more if you keep reading. By the end, you may even understand the way mental health changes people a bit better. So let's start with clickbait, it's somewhat correct, this is what's called a hook. It's a literary tool to gain the reader's attention, if you've gotten this far it probably worked. Why don't I know what it's like to be happy? That's where our story begins.

Something not everyone always fully understands is that there is a multitude of mental health issues that are genetic. You start out day one with these issues. In my case, I've always lived with Type 1 Bipolar. People immediately associate bipolar with mood swings, but hey don't usually understand the severity to the fullest extent. When I am unmedicated I can go from severe suicidal depression to a full manic episode mid-sentence. So let's break that down, this is going to get a bit dark so get your flashlights, suicidal depression is exactly what it sounds like. For those who haven't been in that situation, it's unique to everyone. In my case, I get to a point where I realize that my mother should've smothered me with a pillow when she took me home after birth because at that point it was too late to abort. My life isn't only worthless, it's a detriment to the world and the people I am closest to. It's honestly a mercy to the world if it ends now. To be honest, I'm just too tired to keep up with all this. I'm too much trouble for people to deal with including myself. I'm done with this. It gets worse but I think you have enough to go on. It's not melodramatic, it's a genuine fact to me when I'm in that part of my swing. I hate myself with a bitter passion in those moments. Then moments later, without any provocation, I'm over the edge. It's often said manic is like being super super happy and energetic to help people understand. It's a good starting point, but it's not the whole truth. It's painfully happy. You feel so good it physically hurts, but it's fantastic, it's great. This is the best day of your life, you want to scream and laugh. I get to a point where I get so "Happy" that I start becoming aggressive. I feel great though. I can smash a chair into a table breaking both and then double over laughing. Internally I'm screaming and glass is shattering but it feels great. The worst part is the lack of control. I usually can't stop myself when I have a sudden impulse. I've never hurt anyone while manic, I have done really bad stuff though. Binge shopping has burned many paychecks, in high school I got my hands on an industrial amount of glitter, I think you can imagine how bad that turned out. My ex-girlfriend still finds glitter in her handbag. These fluctuations are independent of any outside events. My ship sails regardless of the wind.

So it doesn't matter where I am, what's happening, how I should feel, no matter what it's roulette when I'm unmedicated. I've become manic at the funerals of close relatives. I've on many holidays become depressed for no reason. I've been medicated for several years now, recently I thought I was happy, that I was having a good day. Then my mather who is one of the people who helps me monitor my mental health if I was safe because it seemed like I was in a manic episode. It hit me. I could not tell the difference. This was mild in comparison, but it was the same feeling. I had no idea what happy feels like. I've only ever known manic, I can't tell the difference.

I fight a lot of mental health issues, they all add up. This is just to help you guys get a better idea of how serious these issues can be. I should also mention my manic episodes are considered relatively minor. I hope I helped you guys get a better picture. Honestly, this isn't my best work, I've written a lot of stuff like this. If you'd like to hear more about mental health from a patient's perspective I'm always open to talk about it or even listen if you need to get things off your chest. I've written a lot more on anxiety, that's the topic I usually cover. Again feel free to hmu in the replies with anything. Thanks for reading.

I've had tons of battle buddies bottle stuff up. I'd like to say that now adays people on the civilian side are more open on mental health more than ever before.
However, many of my buddies have hid their problems because of the stigma and fear of being looked down in the military to even being afraid of getting med boarded. This causes things to weigh everyone down, and on the more extreme end keeps suicide rates so high. I'm no exception, as through particular traumas and perhaps some of my upbringing, I spent years pushing aside how I felt because it wasn't my place, or my feeling on a situation were invalidated, or weren't suppose to be prioritized. I chalked it up to "I've gotta be there for ______, so it's not my place to have feelings on anything right now", until I had to face a very personal issue I couldn't pretend didn't hit hard. I struggled to do basic tasks and it nearly broke completely (and in the very wrong setting no less).
It's important to have our discipline, and we constantly have a sense of brashness, dark humour and gallons of liquid courage, as Soldiers do, but how do I make sure to look out for my buddies in such an environment, and try to make sure they aren't on a silent spiral? I get it's a loaded question, and I get it if you don't have all the answers. Food for thought at least? P.S. Your hair is out of regs (jkol 😂😁 No regs in Civis!!!)

I had to watch this video twice to diget the data. The first time around I was having a schoolboy crush reaction to Gabbie, imagining various social interactions with her.
And NPD people, desperate addicts, and malignant sociopaths are the modern versions of those controlled by demons. Currently, I'm a high-functioning alcoholic. I have three states: Sleeping, drinking, and sober (work) time.

Thank you for talking about mental health issues. I personally have Borderline personality disorder (hope I can translate it literally from Germany), many people often don't understand and except, that even though I used to be quite good in school, i can struggle mentally. People only see what they want to see, I had people telling me that I was not sick and I should just get over it, with the words "you seemed fine just a month ago, just go back to that, it can't be that hard" FYI I was abusing Alkohol, painkillers and sleeping pills before, but I seemed fine. Also some people think that mental illness only can hapen in disfunctional looking families. "perfect" looking families can be very disfunctional and also there can be a trigger outside of the family.

Thank God for a doctor who actually pays attention to the fact that your mental health and physical health are connected and who actually just spends time talking to patients about it instead of just pushing medications.
