> >I often feel myself pulled back into therapy even though I think I may be 'normal' and that my problems are normal. I think T. makes something out of nothing...and don't forget if they are experienced they have heard it all.

It's interesting that you should bring this up terrics, because my T said last night that he got the impression that I thought I was "different". I lied and said I didn't think I was different. I do think I"m different for a number of reasons, that I won't go into now.

I don't think that T have "heard it all". I don't think you can generalize about T's as a group, some are good, and some are lousy. Maybe they all have clinical understanding, or have learned things in school, or read similar case studies, but I'm not sure you can really "hear it all".

I think there are some T's who are more concerned with getting people back on their feet. That's a good T. I think that's what I've finally found, even if it takes awhile.

I went into therapy wanting to get rid of my anger and anxiety. I wanted to be more comfortable around people, sounds simple enough, but I think what happens sometimes, is that you go into therapy, expecting to fix something, not knowing exactly what's wrong, it's just nagging at you, and you find that your issues are more complex that you realized.

I have lots of physical problems, esp. migraines. I think they have to be related to whatever's eating me psychologically. A lot of my past is just missing, I don't know why. Maybe my memory just sucks! ; )

>>>We are not unique. No matter what we think, most ts. are technicians. They only 'care' about us in a certain context no matter what we choose to believe.

Sure, it's their job to only care in a certain context. Like a teacher with a student. I guess it's just a matter of perspective.

>> i think therapy may be addictive and if I let it go I will lead a better life not always contemplating myself and my problems.

I sure agree with this, it can be addictive terrics. My T said last night, and this is why I think he is good, that I need to dwell on what is good in my life, and basically he said I need to get out of my head, and quit thinking about what's wrong with me. He didn't come right out and say it, but that's what he was saying. ; )

> P-Docs do not seem to get to involved with problems. Once they have found a reasonable med. solution they just prescribe and check up.

Yep, that's their job now, and managed care makes sure of it!

> I don't think this is very coherent. terrics

You have been very coherent terrics
