I want to be a therapist but not a psychiatrist. That would mean I couldn't give out medication. I wonder if that would limit the amount of possible clients. I have never tried medication and it would take a lot for me to consider trying it. I like to think I can overcome this on my own. I think it would be so much more satisfying to think I changed myself completely on my own. Like I didn't just pop a pill and wait to get better. From the one time I have tried medication, I absolutely hated it. It made me feel so much more anxious and suicidal. Do you see a psychologist or a psychiatrist or both? Which would you prefer and what has been your experience seeing one or the other?
