Thanks for that. You made a salient point.
Thank you for MHO.
I think you've made an excellent point here.
My girlfriend started seeing this therapist almost two years before she met me. I would say success would have been defined as properly diagnosing her problems and finding ways fir her mental illnesses to not affect her life so much. She had an unusually supportive and tolerant partner in me.
Great, that's a good thing, yeah?

I'm not looking for one for myself. I just git to thinking about it because of how she let her therapist run her life.
We, therapists, generally aren't very directive in telling people what to do with their lives. We're not trained to give advice. We do try to help people ask themselves the right questions about what's going on so they can make their own decisions.
That isn't what happened in my gf's case, although that therapist did seem unprofessional.
That's one of the things my girlfriend suffered from.
Depression is one of the hardest things there is to treat. And even when you think you're better you're still at risk.
@MoscowMitch: OK, that makes sense. Does it make the sufferer mistrust a partner?
That sounds like the exact kind of therapy I need.
Bahahaha. It was quite therapeutic.
An Occupational Therapist? They're good too.
