I think that Daisy hit it on the nose. You are articulate, intelligent, and don't come across as being ill when someone meets you. I can imagine that when you visit a therapist they too see someone who is reasonably healthy, and just in need of some small amount of guidance.

The same thing happened to me with my T. I first went there to deal with the gender issues and the break-up of my marriage. She had no idea about the rest of the crap that I'm dealing with until after the second hospitalization.

Sometimes, I think, they (therapists) are blinded by what they first see. Everything is filtered through the lenses of the first visit or two, until they are hit really clearly between the eyes with something that is clearly not what they had been anticipating.
