Trad England Posted August 15, 2019 Share Posted August 15, 2019 I have not seen any mental health professional in over three years. And even then that was just one visit. My medical doctors have been continuing my Zoloft and occasionally Xanax prescriptions without question for many years. Honestly, I am not sure if I have a chemical imbalance, emotional disorders, trauma from childhood or I am just a lazy bum. If I were to find someone to conduct a true analysis to find out just what the heck is wrong with me, who would I see ? I am in the USA so the choices are counselors, Psychologist or Psychiatrists. Here is my issue with each: Counselors usually have just a masters degree and are often more messed up more than I am. The colleges are pumping out kids with degrees hanging up their shingles every day. At 66 years of age and my own masters degree, I really don't want to be meeting with someone 25 years old. I don't think they could relate. Psychologists: Not even sure about these. Are they enhanced counselors? They have a PhD so are called doctors, but what can they do? I've not had experiences with them before. Psychiatrists: They subscribe pills. And if that doesn't work, they subscribe more pills. Everything is medical to them, not emotional or spiritual. Who can figure me out objectively and develop a course of action to improve my life? I sincerely appreciate anyone who takes the time to answer and hope that you day is going good.
