    How To Play

    ETF stands for Exchange Traded Funds. You know how the investment advisors always say "diversify your portfolio"? In a way, ETF is a diversified portfolio in itself. Simply put, ETF has characteristics of mutual fund, but is publicly traded like any other public equity in the stock exchange...

    How To Play

    Question: Are we only buying and selling shares of the company shares? What about trading options and ETFs? Also, can we short?? Sorry for so many Qs, finding out about this stock trading game had been the high point of my past few weeks.

    Consistently Low Energy Level?

    As for Phillipa's idea, that sounds pretty interesting. I am not against new-agey things, although it usually isn't something I try as the first thing. I might research it a little deeper.

    Consistently Low Energy Level?

    Getting blood works done does sound like a good idea! Maybe I have low VitD or low iron as well. I also know that my blood pressure is on the lower side - so maybe that contributes to the low energy level too.. They say low blood pressure at younger age is better, so that when I get old and...

    University Life

    Hey Gecko, Since I do not know what situation you faced, I will just put out some general advice. I believe most four-year institutions are finished with the enrollment process for the spring entrants. You might want to start looking into application process for the fall 2013 semester soon, as...

    Consistently Low Energy Level?

    Hi all, I was just wondering if anyone else is experiencing the same - and also, overall day-to-day energy levels for others here. I am a female in early 20s, student and an athlete with clinically ideal weight and body composition. I also eat very healthy, aside from chocolate and cheese...

    What Are You Feeling Today? Not Thinking, Rather Feeling! Can You Identify Yours?

    I was really angry for no reason for the past 2 weeks or so,, and after Thanksgiving break, I am now ready to get a relatively early start on my finals prep. Pretty full of energy to take on things, at the moment. Gotta ride with it, because I know I will eventually get really anxious and...

    First Ever Cruise

    Looks absolutely stunning! You will love it :) I loved my 2 weeks long expedition cruise. There was something extremely calming&comforting about that near absolute darkness in the middle of the ocean and the rhythmic wave hitting the side deck of the ship. I wish I could freeze that moment. My...

    Poll Have You Forgiven The People Who Hurt You

    I went through a prolonged period of numb period, then learned to keep peace on the surface. In order to do that, I cut out a lot of activities that ask emotional commitment - listening or playing music (and I was a young former musician), watching or reading emotional movies/books, having...

    What Are You Feeling Today? Not Thinking, Rather Feeling! Can You Identify Yours?

    The world is grey and I am watching it pass. But I am going to make life happen, not have life happen to me. The outside appears bright and enthused. The inside is having a storm, the anxiety and fear, unable to focus on confronting the immediate causes of anxiety.. The apathy bridges the...

    I Thought It Was Going To Be One Of My Better Courses- I Thought Wrong!

    Hi! I think it really depends on the professor - some professors are more understanding than others, as you probably already know! Last semester, I took an anthropology class and there was a student with traumatic experience( I am not sure if he would fit in the clinical definition of PTSD, but...

    Poll How Are Your Relationships With Your Family As A Result Of Your Trauma?

    I am actually somewhere in between rocky and horrible. They don't know about my diagnosis, and I will not discuss it with them, period. I had attempted to talk it out and get an apology from them in the past, but it was a huge failure and made me feel even more betrayed and alone. I won't be...

    Self-pep Talk Ideas When Hitting The Rock Bottom?

    When my life gets out of its fine balance, I can easily fall of the track and feel like I am hitting the rock bottom of a human's life - hopeless and dark, losing meaning of life and sometimes even suicidal. Add some flashbacks to that and bothersome thoughts dominating my living soul.. It...

I had been trying my best to keep everything in my life at balance, including eating and exercising.. thus I have not had binge/purge for a long time. During and after the Thanksgiving holiday, however, I was in a situation where I did not have...

    Study Dear Researcher... Please Study This!

    I had been associated with a few research institutions in the past and I am currently attending one (though clinical psychology is not my area of study). I actually have suggested a study very similar to "whether or not loud announcements/music/etc. in stores triggers anxiety in the average...

    General How About Personality Changes?

    (((( Mohamed ))))) Yes, a major personality change occurred for me as well, and I don't know who I am. I used to be a very out going person and was always enthusiastic to participate in all kinds of activities. Now I am very apathetic, and fear meeting new people. I am more or less of a hermit...
