Thank you Ayuda, you are correct. My therapist knows this doctor very well as they work together in a dual diagnosis program at the hospital. She really is a wise and wonderful person and would never generalize in that manner ("All Pakistani men are like that"). She wouldn't have given me her personal opinion on this particular doctor
except that I was so obviously distressed by his
criticism. I've been trying very hard to make progress on his strict instructions of NO alcohol and NO coffee, but espresso and red wine are like
MAJOR joys in my life (I mean, what does that leave me? Just chocolate). Still, despite my sincere efforts to cut down, Dr. Happy isn't interested in "progress" and has been irritated with me for not dropping these two passions immediately. Then he threatened to discharge me as his patient if I didn't meet his deadline for having blood drawn.

I have no question about his competency...despite my dismal psychiatric history, he was the first psychiatrist to recommend therapy for me (what's up with that??) and I'm doing quite well on medication. I just wish that he would can the attitude.
