Not in those sentences. I can't tell the context.

Not really, only clinical psychologists and psychiatrists can make diagnosis, both here and in the US.
A psychologist is anyone who has a master in a branch of psychology. A clinical psychologist has a PhD.
I am a general physician and a resident in medical genetics.
With more context, the interpretation does change.

[quote] I could understand if you were saying that the person on the receiving end of this may seem bi polar. Because effectively it seems like they're a bit of a freeloader, who is insensitive to this person's feelings if it was the same person. [/quote]

Normal people display many traits associated with disorders in the DSM-5. That doesn't mean they suffer the illnesses. I didn't assume that about the receiving end because it could be a young adult and there are no quotations from them.

But the type person saying each of these things comes across angry/resentful, sensitive/neglected, confused/fragile, frustrated/irritated, lonely/needy [/quote]

I believe that's because you have more information. People that aren't neglected, sensitive, confused, "fragil", needy can still utter those sentences.

[@542305,Darkcosmos] [@542305,Darkcosmos] well those are emotions that people can feel at any given time with a healthy and sound mind or mental disorder. So to claim possible bi polar is unfair.
I don't have more details they are random scenarios.

We have the same thing here in the UK. So I don't understand the confusion as their differences. She states she's a psychologist with a list of PhD bsc etc etcs.

She was diagnosis but merely challenging how were interpret what's being said to us, and learning to to see it beyond just what's being thrown at you there and then.

Like analyzing behaviour, a child is sat barely able to stay awake as their eyes fight off the sleep, you tell them it time for bed, they say they aren't ready.
This under the microscope, could be viewed in a number of ways.
But what information do you extract and does it have implications for something more in the parent child relationship.
As you dig deeper the age becomes factor in the equation and so on...

Good for you being a Gp, do you enjoy it?

[quote] So to claim possible bi polar is unfair.[/quote] As I mentioned twice already, I didn't make a diagnosis or claim the person has bipolar.

It's a lot of work. The training as well as the professional development never end even when you are in a seemingly permanent position. Other than that I do enjoy it.

That's pretty much why I requested a context.
