1. I don't promote CBT or any specific form of therapy. It has nothing to do with the fact that my psychiatrist is my therapist. I have had a previous situation where my therapist was not my psychiatrist. (Then the therapist developed a life threatening disease and could no longer practice, so I have experienced a difficult therapeutic relationship and understand many of the issues that are involved.)

2. Perhaps all my posts start that way because I have found a pattern with many people on this site: only 100% agreement is allowed. If you bring up other perspectives you are considered mean or unsympathetic. It is also why I comment very infrequently. There is little willingness to engage in thoughtful debate.

3. I am certainly not the one who needs to be coddled. Regardless, I suspect most therapists don't see their role as coddlers. Yes, they can be compassionate and empathetic. But I don't think there is a class called Coddling that perspective therapists are required to take.

4. I have never said that I don't have my own issues. I know them well and I struggle with them in many ways. But the four traits you point out do not describe me in any way. Maybe you just want me to be the bad guy because I am not someone who always agrees and thinks the patient's behavior is always 100% acceptable.

5. I never diagnose anyone from their posts. I clearly don't think I have enough knowledge or understanding. Maybe it would be better if you got to know someone (beyond a few posts on a forum where no one uses their real name) before you started telling them what their problems are.

6. The only thing that I agree with you about is that you are critical and harsh, especially of someone who has not been critical of you.

7. Now I know why this community is so small. It has far less to do with Twitter or Facebook and much more about the fact that diversity is not appreciated - in fact it is not desired at all.

8. Finally, since you are defending Verloren and since she won't read my future posts, please tell her that in the future I will not comment on her posts. Clearly she wants other things from this forum than what I am able to contribute.
