I used to go to a psychiatrist and college counselor years ago. The college counselor was actually more helpful than the psychiatrist-- she was only there to get paid. Every time I went there, she didn't even talk that much and let me talk the whole time and used to look at the clock while the college counselor tried to explain to me what caused SA.

The worst advice I got from this psychiatrist was "Don't think about it (SA) too much"

-- Like that is going to magically make SA disappear. I had SA so long that it's just natural to me. This is the behavior that I've known my whole life.

I too got better advice and help from a counselor than a pshychiatrist. She helped me make changes that improved my life :yes where as the doctor just sat there and spewed platitudes at me and was all to happy too drug me up. :no

The counselor addressed the immediate problems where the doctor wanted to attack me from the inside out. He did say some things I already knew so that didn't help plus added some new stuff which I found preposterous. He didn't KNOW me. HE did all the talking whereas the counselor and I discussed things.

I hate it when doctors stick their finger up your nostril then procede to drag you around the room. { Just a metaphor } :b

OMG!!! :eek: That's terrible. :eek:

I once knew a guy who was addicted to porn.
And his job was on the line so he had to go to a Psychologist to stop it.
Come to find out the Psychologist was also addicted to porn.
Needless to say going to him didn't help.
The psychologist was found out and lost his job.
It was splashed all over the newspaper.

I would have loved to have been a fly on the wall during those sessions. :um
