They care about getting you to take them pills.
I think the problem with psychologists and psychiatrists is that most of them simply don't "get" it. Especially when it comes to psychologist. For whatever reason, these people get paid to advise people on feelings and situations that most of them have probably never experienced themselves. So, in my experience, talking to them is about as good an idea as talking to the mailman or the McDonalds cashier about your problems. None of these parties will care about what it is you have to say, and, more consequentially, none of these groups will know what the **** they're talking about or doing when they advise you or prescribe medicine to you.
I personally think it's a huge warning sign if you go to a place and they diagnose you after only one visit, or, EVEN WORSE, when they prescribe medicine to you and are belligerent or coercive about it. The counselors at my current university are literally nothing but drug pushers, with the only exception that what they're doing is "legal" and they can hide all of their aggression behind the veneer of trying to help you (since you're nothing but a poor crazy ******* who needs to do everything they say anyway.).
My last psychologist was a ****ing bully. She basically told me that I would never get better if I didn't start taking pills RIGHT NOW, because obviously I was incapable of working through my problems like I wanted to- because I had identified the things that were troubling me and just wanted to resolve them. But, of course, she knows me better than I know myself, so she's the one that's best at determining what's good for me. After all, she's the one with the degree.
Went on the pills, and they made everything worse, with the added benefit of making me stupid, sluggish, and extremely suicidal. When I said that I was having bad side-effects, their solution was to make the dosages stronger. Kept taking the medication religiously, while it still did nothing to improve my depression or anxiety. At one point, the drowsiness caused by the medication got so bad that I was falling asleep while talking to other people mid-sentence. It was so jarring.
The psychologist displayed an utter lack of empathy and understanding when I spoke to her about my problems, but was still totally insistent that she KNEW I should be on medication.
I complained to the doctors continually about the medication being ineffective, but they would never listen to me. They went from saying that the medication should work in two weeks, to saying it should work in three months, six months, two years... At this point, I wouldn't be surprised to find out that I was a part of some medical experiment they were hosting. Nothing about their behavior made any sense.
If you're prescribed medications, you'd better make sure you get the right ones the first time, because it's unlikely that the doctors will believe or be willing to change course once you tell them that their plans aren't working.
I got off the pills, stopped seeing my failure of a psychologist, and although things were very rough for a patch, I still feel way better than I ever did while dealing with them. At the end of the day, I think that people who are going through similar problems are much better to talk to than someone totally removed from the situation. I'm also beginning to think that psychology and especially psychiatry are mostly bs fields occupied by bs people.
