therapist/psychiatrists only listen to what u have to say no advice. if ur lookin for advice talk to a best friend. if u have no friends..... go to a jazz club. girls r usually there.

I honestly believe self reflection is better than paying some tit a fortune to try to hammer you into his textbook psychological definitions.

Then what the hell is their purpose? I think you're over generalizing

I fell into the second choice category for a while. I was suffering horrible depression after someone I loved pass.

It helped, but it was kind of awkward. Like he did a good job of relating to me and making me feel better, but it still was kind of strange for obvious reasons.

You've obviously never seen a decent psychologist.

I can understand things like talking about such personal things to strangers and proably crying in front of them.

i am bipolar, i use medication, i have an appointment for a possible higher dosage. Art usually helps me, music and skateboarding. those are my favorites so they help most of the time.

I might've teared up at one point but never cried. We did get to know each other first of course, with him asking most of the questions so he could get a sense of who I was.

The medication (Zoloft) admittedly did nothing for at least a few weeks. But once it really started kicking in I felt much more like doing anything except moping.

So you actually felt like making something out of yourself?

You could say that, yeah. It got me job searching and gave me the balls to finally try going to singing lessons.

You should add a "Used to see one" option on the poll.

Never have, never plan to. I only very rarely have issues sorting my emotions out myself, and I have friends for when I can't.

That's very interesting. I congrajulate(sp?) you.

The medication acts as more of a mask of the depression. You're still depressed, but only for the time of when the medication kicks in, you don't feel sad anymore... sort of like marijuana or mushrooms.

Really, the medication is useless for ultimately eradicating yourself from depression. To overcome something like that, you are going to have to solve it yourself, not "cheat" by using medication.

Thanks, I myself wouldn't mind being a psychologist now since I find the mind interesting; plus I could help people.

This.

I saw a therapist for awhile because I had massive anxiety/panic attacks daily, but they eventually went away.

Yea but sometimes people are born the disorders like depression and when the symptoms occur, they have no idea why they feel like that.
