Psychology is a human social science, so it should be taken with a grain of salt, it isn't as enumerable as physics or chemistry, and not quite neuroscience.

It is interesting what one neuron, or a few neurons are up to ... but that will never explain systematic behavior involving billions of them simultaneously.

My coping skill is to just not deal with anything.

Let me just say that it's not a healthy coping skill. Very unproductive. Oh wait Christians do that too!

My coping skill is to just solve all problems by myself.  Management does not love be asked to solve problems.  That requires decisions.

Freud's initial studies on Aphasia, for example, criticized the somatic "locations" of aphasia in the brain. Deepak Chopra is correct, "Thoughts make molecules." (Quantum Healing). We can post studies that show that fear memory consolidation (such as those in PTSD) require specific protein syntheses. Julia Kristeva addresses the concept of "psychological ill-being" vs. psychoanalysis in her work, though more recently, we suggest, This Incredible Need to Believe.

I agree, that the conventional medicine, ignores the psychosomatic, at its peril.

Kristeva also suggests that there is an incredible amount of energy exerted to maintain the Xian mental geometry, which resonates with a slow, chronic form of self-induced PTSD. What molestations are occurring at the protein synthesis level?

self induced PTSD? sounds like a stupid thing to do... would you care to elaborate on the christian connection? is Trump suffering from self-induced PTSD? or maybe he's suffering from self-induced megalomania?
not expecting god to show up, but if he does we’re going to have to beat the prick up.

I apologize as there are some arguments going on in the scientific community that I was unaware of. But as of now it is officially a branch of social science and as serious as any other branch of science.

And I apologize for arguing that fact.

Psychology is not a hard science.  It may become one in the future.  It is the scientific study of the human mind and its functions, especially those affecting behavior in a given context.
