Well, this is a response to your questions about my bad therapist that you posted oh-so-long-ago. Anyway, I would get mad at him and tell him that he didn't know what it was like to be depressed (which I was not right in assuming) and he began to tell me about his abusive childhood. From then on we spent sessions on how I didn't really have a reason to be depressed. Then he began calling me nicknames, like "tootsie", and "cutsie", and "sweetums". Don't ask me where he got them...his mind seemed more warped then mine. I came home from every session swearing and using every foul word I could think of. When my 'rents asked him about it he said it was good that I was blowing off some steam and it was me just being a teenager. Well, things got worse and I got more quiet so my 'rents figured I was ok. We went away for the summer and never re-scheduled another appt with him. I cont. to see my psychiatrist for regular monthly visits for meds until he realized that there was a bit more to my depression...why I didn't trust him. He asked me about it during one of my 15 min "check-ups" and I told him about this jerk that I used to see for therapy. He had told me lies about the psych I was talking to at that time (and I'm still seeing this psychiatrist now) and made me terrified of him, but I was too scared to say anything to anyone which is why I never stopped seeing the psychiatrist....THANK GOD FOR THAT! So now, two yrs later I am seeing the same psychiatrist that has pulled me out of distrust for him and he has always been there for me. I just wish every mental health professional could be at least close to how great this dr is!
