Yeah, a lot of shrinks irritate me to no end. They do have incredibly high divorce rates, suicide rates, and drug abuse rates. Psychiatrists also account for a disproportionate number of docs investigated for ethical and legal violations. Despite this, they are entitled to recommend someone be hospitalized against his/her will and *treated* as members of this kind of shady profession deem appropriate. The thing that gets me about psychiatry is the power thing....so many shrinks have ego/power issues, and if you step on their toes they get really, really upset. That and they tend to be manipulative. Case in point: at one point, a shrink accussed me of abusing a certain medication, which I had never abused. He made this claim without any proof whatshoever--I suppose that he thought since he "felt" it must be true, it was, in fact, what was going on. So, he raises his voice, delivers his speech about how I'm abusing medication X, and asks me, in this mocking, condescending tone "And what do you have to say about the situation?" I just responded that it obviously didn't matter what I said or even what the truth was--he had already made up his mind, and that was going to be that and I refused to discuss it further. He got upset, terminated the session early, and I got another shrink.
