So what's the deal with the abuse from your therapist? Was he/she gaslighting you or something? 100% correct! My entire family, nuclear and extended, was emotionally abusing me. And my bullies were, well... being themselves. But my therapist was on their side, and tried to gaslight me into thinking...

The person in question was certainly a narcissist, such a user, and trying to control me. Well, OK, I'd buy that - sounds similar to a couple of MY experiences 8O Unfortunately, that's a classic dirty trick in the narcissist's toolbox, which I believe is called triangulation . Not much you can say ...

I had a Friendsgiving only once, in 2020. That year, my state's governor declared holiday gathering illegal. Luck for me, I had already met my QAnon friends, so we had out own illegal Friendsgiving. The host took charge of the turkey, the guests took charge of whatever was delegated to them. Very ea...

When cycling I did used to park my bike next to a mostly empty children’s playground. Even that can look dodgy since there is a lot of paranoia about pedophiles etc…. You said "mostly" empty playground, which means there were at least a few kids. If you're that concerned, don't stop in fr...

It depends a lot on where in the park you hang out alone. Next to a playground where there are children playing? Definitely not! Next to an empty playground? A gray area; you can sit and rest briefly, but sitting all day is a no-no. Next to a hiking/walking trail? Absolutely OK. (Although it looks b...

Can you not invite some of these men that you talk to over to meet in person? If they get a hint it'll only stay as an online chat they'll eventually lose interest. Agreed! There's nothing men despise more than women who string them along with promises of a date, but instead use them as online pen ...

When asked about what I thought about the story, I said that I disliked it and that I wondered how the rainbow fish managed to remove its scales. I could suspend my disbelief enough to accept talking fish, but the scales puzzled me. Further, I asked if the rainbow fish would still be known as the r...

I've seen a few posts about persuading one's significant other to see a doctor. If you're trying to do that, perhaps your SO might be convinced by reading my hospital threads. All of them detail very positive experiences I had at my local hospital. Where do you live? There's kinda a monopoly on the...

A therapist is someone you are paying to help you with understanding the relationship between what is happening inside you and what is happening in your outer life in the world. Feeling that the therapist is an authority figure rather than a helper is going to skew the results that are possible. Th...

While I don't know what women want from men, what I want from women is to JUST BE LEFT ALONE!! ! :evil: That is, I don't want a woman heckling me to see a doctor because she "cares about me" :roll:. I don't want a woman berating me for eating a bacon cheeseburger because she "cares ab...

Well he just seemed embarresed when i showed him the picture of her. Possibly, he thought she was below your league, got vicariously embarrassed, and rudely verbalized it. He shouldn't have done that. He should have at least reacted neutrally to the picture, like "she looks nice". With th...

Trying to do therapy with the idea that you are expected to do certain things and not others is not really engaging with the therapy. A therapist can only help if a client is willing to work with themselves. Having an antagonistic relationship with the therapist is just a non starter. I would sugge...

In the UK, they recommend CBT for people on the spectrum. It's mentioned in the autism guide for therapists. 8O This was true in the US for decades as well. But now, there are schools of thought that CBT isn't as effective as previously believed. At its core, it's ABA/masking for emotions: necessar...

Good therapists don't offer advice. ... Many of us wouldn't be alive today if it weren't for the care received from our therapists. Please have respect and realise they aren't all caricatures of a woman from your past. This isn't the thread topic. The topic is how a therapist would react to a patie...

He/she might. But it's not about mental health. It's about the social skills for meeting the therapist's expectations.
