Some of the posts here do indicate some legitimately bad experiences with therapists. But, some of the comments don't seem so bad to me and actually make some sense. I am just not sure what some of you guys want your psychiatrist to do to help you. What are they supposed to do? Sit there and listen and then agree with you that you are f***ed up and there is nothing you can do about it but feel sorry for yourself. Seriously, what do you think a therapist can say or do to help you? The first step is to realize that we need to snap out of it (fine, we all realize that), and then work with the therapists on ways we can help our situation. The only way is to use some courage and face our fears constructively. Exposure is a system that you have to understand and be in the proper mindset for it to work anyway. A half-assed attempt at exposure without knowing how to go about it is useless.
