Stand up psychiatry

I went to my psychiatrist appointment last week. I walked into his office and said, “How are ya doin doc?”
He answered, “Well, better than you.”

I read it in a psychodynamic diagnostics book that a therapist is handicapped in profession unless he/she has a depressed personality.

Doc said he has a shy personality. So I understood kind of difficulties he might have faced.

Another I met two or three times struggled with something. Anxiety, depression. I am not sure about it. He has written about briefly in a book on REBT.
