I went to a Psychiatrist for 1 1/2 years in 5th/6th grade. When I went into therapy 10 years ago, I tried to find out what that was all about. My mother remembers that it was because I was constipated (and I do remember that part of it). I found my old Psychiatrist and called her, but she retired years ago and burned all her patient records. Not surprisingly, she didn't remember the details. I also talked to my pediatrician. All that was in my chart was that I had seen her, and the part about the constipation. But he remembered my family, and me as a "sad child", and my mother as "depressed".

I wish I had more details about it, and I keep thinking that I'll get copies of my records - not to read them, but so they will be available in the future for a future therapist. My daughter had a couple of sessions 7 years ago, and her therapist has moved away. I really should track her down and get my daughter's records before I can't find them anymore.

But even just the constipation part was helpful as that is a common symptom for withholding/controlling behavior.

Good luck.
