> Doesn't this "reminder" belong in psycho-SOCIAL-babble? I mean, seriously, this topic has been talked to death, and AFAIK, promoting talk therapy is not part of the purpose of this board.

Too right it isn't. Talk therapy needs *no* promotion; psychologists are quite capable of 'talking up' their profession & interfering where they're not wanted. A case in point:

Received an NHS appt. with my old pdoc today with view to being referred to a *specialist pharmacologist*. This guy previously sent me to a day hospital for 6 months and knows my view on talk therapy (ie one of the biggest scams of the C20th). So why is there going to be a psychologist present at my new appt? The supposedly cash-strapped NHS is wasting money on someone who will have precisely 3 seconds to exit the office upon my arrival. It also worries me that they're *still* looking at this from a psychological POV. Exasperated? That's putting it mildly.

> P.S. I have family and friends who offer me all the "psychosocial support" I need. I would hope that most others don't need to pay somebody for it, either.

That's how I've always felt. Maybe others aren't so lucky (at least in this regard) as us?
