Our expert says:
I entirely agree with Maria. Some shrinks, some teachers, some accountants, some musicians, and by far most politicians, are useless. That doesn't mean that its wise for us to dismiss all of them and their fields of activity as always useless.
Its not that "your (my) treatments" dont work, but that nothign works in the hands either of an inadequate practitioner or where the patient isnt fully cooperating in helping themselves.
No psychologist or psychiatrist is likely to "get angry when you have problems" - if you didn't have problems, they'd not have a job. But of course it is possible to make them angry by how you choose to behave.
If your shrink, or other doctor is "just sitting there looking bored" ofr just labelling and humiliating you, then he's incompetent and not doing his job right. You should tactfully bring his attention to this, and if he doesn't deal adequately with it, sack him and start with someone else.
I know ( from a great deal of feedback from satisfied readers ) that this forum is useful to a great many people. It seems you have arived here determined to be dissatisfied. So if I don't help you, you'll be angry, and if I was helpful, you'd be disappointed and angry, too. I can't win if you start with those intentions.
I share your disdain for Facebook, Twitter etc, as merely phoney ego massage.
But psychopathic behaviour isn't either compulsory nor universal. There are good people out there ( you might even be one of them, though perhaps currently in hiding ) and good therapists and docs of various stripes. And good friends and trustworthy people.
We just need to keep on trying to find them.
