I know exactly how you feel. I posted below about my litigation and having my employer's atty obtaining and researching my entire psych therapy notes. It feels like a total violation of privacy. It has made me see therapist and psychiatrists in a whole new light. There isn't such thing as confidentiality. Forget it. That doesn't exist. All my previous therapists wanted me to open up and spill my past sexual abuse hx. Now, its in the hands of a greedy atty trying to use my past against me.

Those comments were almost sarcastic in his notes. They do not sound objective. I would not go into his office and blast him, because that is the personality that he has painted on his records of you - histronic. This guy almost sounded like he didn't like you personally. I don't like that stmt. "hopelessly addicted". As a medical professional, I take that as she is beyond hope. That's not the case here as you are 35 y/o. I could understand a 90 y/o with a 50 year long drinking problem.

You may not like what I am about to say, but it is the truth. If you don't want people to know you smoke, don't tell them. It will indeed be put in a file if you say so. Professionals by law are to record those things. I would say just go out and get another pdoc or just go to a GP. Personally, I feel this guy painted a very unobjective point of view of you. I would feel insulted as well. I wouldn't ever go back to this guy. He may have thought you were a manipulator by telling him what not to write. You just can't trust someone to not put something in writing. It is a horrible experience. I totally sympathize with you. It's not easy to get over this. Learn from this and watch what you say. I hate to say that, but this is the truth.
