I just discovered psycho babble while searching the internet for psychology related topics. I have been here only a few days. I find it interesting since I am a clinical psychologist, and for me it was valuable to read about other people's experiences with therapists. I feel that I can learn a lot from that.

I have been posting very actively lately, but that is due to the fact that I am sick and have a bit extra time at the moment. I will continue using the board also in the future, but not as much as I do now. The last days I have been exploring and getting to know this place, and learing includes also being active, so I have also been posting. Now I have been pretty much posting wherever I find an interesting subject, but in the future I think I will stick mostly to psychology and medical issues. That is my field of work, and when I have less spare time I must consentrate on that.

I am diagnosed for recurrent depression, usually with major episodes. I am currently not depressed. And due to proper treatment and therapy I have less frequent depressive episodes. Of medication I use cipralex 10mg daily (escitalopram). I am currently not in therapy since I have just moved to another country, but I will find one as soon as I can. Earlier I have been in different therapy situations (school psychologist at 12, a suicide expert when I was 14, humanistic therapy and cognitive therapy during studies, psychodynamic therapy on private basis). I don't have "my own" psychiatrists, but I am surrounded by that field of work when I work, and so far I have always been working in a very supportive environment and gotten free conversations with experts in my condition through the different jobs I have had. I am currently not working since I am studying further at the moment.

So far this online group has helpful in the awareness of bad and not bad behaviours from psychotherapists, and in understanding the effect and usefulness of potential addictive drugs in people who are using them without being addicted.
