>>1 shrink went so far as to say that I was faking psychiatric symptoms so I could feel "special" and "unique".

Why would someone want to fake psychiatric symptoms in order to feel special? Unfortunately, people with psychiatric problems often fear they will be considered "special" in negative terms, if at all . It would make more sense to assume that people already suffering from such problems might develop secondary defense mechanisms involving feeling "special" in order to ward off feelings of depression, inferiority, etc.

>>Shrinks act as if they're objective, but really all sorts of variables affect what diagnosis you end up with.

How true.
