Psychologists are useless

I dont talk to people enough so ive found them supportive. Sometimes their advice is helpful. But, its just like the psychiatrist, sometimes they help, sometimes they dont.

I prefer talking to my nurse once every second week instead of going through therapy by a psychologist.

The nurse gives me an everyday, solid, guidance i can choose to ignore or listen to.

The psychologist treats me according to a scheme. And im a person, not a fault that needs to be repaired using a scheme.

Can you request a new therapist?

Like anything, there’s a lot of ‘average’ or ‘second rate’ ones. I’ve met a few of them. Can’t afford the good ones. The good ones I assume (goes for doctors too) are by the beaches and nice parts of California.

I have had very good experiences with psychologists and therapists, it’s the psychiatrists I seem to butt heads with

They’ve been arrogant and judgemental Pricks with me

For the past 25 years, I’ve had very excellent psych care by an amazing team of mental health professionals at a US Midwest VA hospital. Now, I hear that my new pdoc is going to be out of state and that she is going to be conducting all our appointments through videoconferencing. But I will still have to come into the clinic for the appointments. I think this totally sucks. I asked for a different pdoc.

I had a psychiatrist who yelled at me at the top of his lungs. I should have punched him in the face. It can be difficult I’ve been through many many case workers . The psychiatrists are not great here. It’s worth it to looking into better help. Got a nurse practitioner. Very kind and listens.

I tend to agree, just because i didnt make eye contact this therapist started saying i was unwell when the medication was doing its job and screamed at me, i dont even know how someone like her can be a therapist im not a fan of therapy since then.

Im glad you didn’t attack him. It would have complicated your treatment.

I went through 6 mental health professionals with varying titles before I found the therapist that has helped me more than words can describe.

It’s unfortunate that there seem to be to many money hungry schmucks out there. I hope you’re able to find the right person soon.
