Oh Dinah, I really feel for you. It sounds like you worked it out with your therapist though, and I think that shows a huge amount of courage on your part.
I had a psychiatrist tell me once that I was mentally ill. Well, okay, that covers a huge range but what exactly did she mean? Of course, I'll never be able to forget that. And my last ex-T told me that he thought I was selfish (he qualified that with "at times" but still, it bothers me). So now I'm a selfish, mentally ill person. Hmm. And another P-doc told me I was slightly schizophrenic.
What's with the labels? I don't know how they're helpful. Once a p-doc or T has an idea of what he/she thinks is going on, why can't they try to find out more about it and help us work through it, instead of labelling? Because I think it's apparent they're sometimes incorrect, sometimes in a bad mood, sometimes their own memories are unreliable, etc etc... they're human too and labelling only hurts us. Do they think we don't remember this stuff? Sometimes I really wonder if it's a hostile passive/aggressive maneuvre, meant to get even with the patient/client.
