whining on forums (especially on psychology)

    Have you noticed people on psychology forums especially, whining things of the sort "How can I control my emotions," or "I can feel no emotions," or "I want back my emotions." Or "I am able to feel nothing, my gf broke up with me and I felt nothing."
    Do you think this is truly serious stuff? Or just whining of a spoilt kid turned adult? Just my personal take on such matters.

    I think a lot of people have problems they could deal with themselves if they really wanted to. But I think a lot of it is just whiny self-pity. Most people really only think of themselves and not the real suffering that's going on all the time throughout the world.

    Geez, those poor indigenous people in the jungles must really be suffering not having access to shrinks and the latest anti-depressants. *sarcasm*

    I wouldn't be so quick to dismiss the advanced psychological techniques, as well as the wide variety of powerful hallucinogens developed over thousands of years by the shaman and voodoo priests :H

    I haven't really noticed lately, but I've seen it before. Do I take it seriously? Not always, I'll admit. I think the majority of the time, it is more of a cry for attention than a cry for real help. It seems more socially acceptable to bitch and whine than to be positive and to try and make things better.

    /\ not more socially acceptable, just a lot easier, and therefore, common

    what's your personal take on such matters? you just asked questions there...

    i think it's totally reasonable for ppl to ask questions about emotional matters in a psychology board... and i think the answers are very important in learning to relate to others. that's why i think it's good that we have separate forums so that those discussions (that obviously aren't tolerated by a lot of ppl) are separate from other... more interesting?.... threads

    sometimes ppl just have to vent.. and forums are like a public diary... but still pretty anonymous

    Maybe they are having problems working through their emotions? I get help with that around here on occasion ... even here in RT...
