While I understand your concerns and perhaps I would have had the same reaction, I must admit I was surprised about one comment you made:

"I pay her to sit there and tell me there is nothing wrong with me."

Is that what you really pay her for? Or do you pay her to help you look at yourself honestly and help you overcome either weaknesses or other issues?

If you just pay her to sit there and tell you everything is fine, how will you ever progress in life? If you have an illness - regardless of whether it is a long term one or not - how will you ever get better with out making some changes in your life?

I am not saying she is 100% right. But sometimes hearing a little honesty can be helpful. I know that when good friends told me they thought I was depressed, it was helpful to confirm something I knew already. And it made me feel good that they cared enough about me to take the risk to tell me - that is not an easy thing to do, even if you are a therapist.

Finally regardless what she calls it or you call it, if you believe what you have it is not a long term illness, then that is what matters.
