I think most T's don't like to give diagnoses...they'd rather treat the problem...and not "categorize" people.

I think partially b/c they don't think it's especially helpful in treatment, and also b/c they know it can be hurtful to the "client/patient". At least that's it seems.

My first T told me he only made a diagnosis b/c they have to for insurance....and he was hesitant to tell me what it was b/c he knew it could upset me and wasn't that important for me to know.

I think it's really insensitive for T to say that. I hope she was just trying to help and didn't mean to hurt you.
