I wasn't at all offended! I agree that medications shouldn't be taken lightly. I had one psychiatrist who answered every problem with more drugs, and it left me pretty screwed up in chemistry. The one I found after him was the one with such a sensible point of view, and now I evaluate med changes with his guidelines in mind.

I think DBT and CBT both have a lot to offer. I think I prefer the more accepting tone of DBT, and I like the mindfulness aspect. But I definitely prefer a therapist who slips those things in rather than follows the manual. I tend to be too stubborn for that.

That sounds like a good homework assignment. It could definitely make you think.

I did biofeedback briefly. They didn't get into neurofeedback with the eeg's. That was left for a later stage. He used thermometers and galvanic skin conductors that they taped all over. But I found I couldn't work with him. He was very direct, he'd say. I'd say abrasive. He'd get angry with me when all my anxiety indicators would skyrocket when he came in the room. I apparently hadn't learned to moderate my responses well enough to cope with a stressor of that magnitude. I haven't found anyone else in the area that does it, unfortunately.
