I know that sort of boss. Funny how people with nothing to do, so often choose to not do it, with you. Oprah's comments on overweight are no based on science - and sound more like a seeking for excuses rather than useful explanations.
Sorry youm met one of those INTERESTING shrinks. I used to know a Scottish Jungian when I worked in London, who responded to almost everything you said ( in therapy or in real life ) with "Really ?" and could put more different expressions and shades of meaning into that single word than anyone I have ever heard.
Such repetitions usually suggest a therapist running on auto-pilot. Again, one of the reasons I like CBT is that the therapist and patient are both active and collaborative.
I amwondering why you were put on Lexamil in the first place, and why you are still on it. I don't like drugs given without a good scientific basis and in relation to a proper diagnosis.
Sounds like high time for you to see a good psychiatrist for a second opinion and a fresh diagnosis and DISCUSSION of treatment Options.
By the way, folks, this last is a phrase I often use, with good reason. I prefer a competent doc to outline the range of available treatments which might be helpful to you, their advantages and disadvantages, and help you to make a soundly informed decision, rather than just to prescribe whatever the last Drug rep pushed at him.
While it's indeed correct that you can't take a pil for everything, and some things are better managed in other ways, a doc also has to consider whether some complaints might be CAUSED by an existing med, and better managed either by a different med, or by no med.
