Help, don't know what to think of pdoc

Posted by gibbons482 on July 24, 2009, at 21:07:42

I apologize if this is long, but please bear with me and read. I need advice.

I am watching Mental on TV. Does my psychiatrist care that much about me or am I just a source of
income? Sometimes he sits with his body language that according to the books indicates superiority if a closed expression unless if someone known a long time, but thoughtful/confident if open expression. I can't read expressions. I don't know. He seems smug maybe. I've heard all psychiatrists are stuck up, egotistical.

Maybe I had him pegged wrong, maybe the rapport I thought we had, we don't. Maybe I'm just crazy to him. Maybe it's all in my mind. Why isn't my doctor like Jack?

I have no basis for my sudden doubt. We laugh in sessions, things are serious soemtimes, sometimes I feel like the entertainment (in a good way) but what if he's just humoring me. I need to think about why this even matters? I had a special relationship with my last psychiatrist before he moved. He was more like a friend at times, he was my therapist too. I'm just having a fit of I don't know what right now. Anxiety. I haven't taken my medicine yet.

How do I know he cares? He seems like it, but once again the body language thing. I can't tell if he's just relaxed or what. Or if it's superority. Over me. Or Happy that I'm doing well? He always sees me if I need it, even in emergencies.
