you cant decide what's right for you when you're hopped up on crack.

this may be true but therapists also provide a neutral person to vent your emotions to, and they are good at guiding your emotions in healthy way that can help you deal with things you may not have known you need to deal with.

someone else said that they can't even tell their best friends some of their problems so how could they trust a therapist....this is exactly the point of therapy. often times your friends and loved ones are the people you need to vent ABOUT not vent TO. a therapist won't get mad or take sides if you say something about your true feelings to them. friends and family can be judgemental, this is one thing that a psychologist is not.

i've been going to a psychologist for about a month now out of my own free will. i just felt that i needed someone to talk to for a while so i could finally get over a dysteimic depression that has haunted me since i can remember. i had my doubts at first but i have honestly noticed that my weeks are getting better already. i never look forward to going to see my shrink, and i often think that i don't really need it, but after i go i'm very happy i went.

and also, just to throw in my two cents, curing yourself with faith is bullshit. to me that's just ignoring your problems. i hate how christians always take this egotistical stance like they've already solved all their problems w/ out all this "scientifical mumbo jumbo." if psychology is bullshit, then how does it compare to believing in a magical higher power that you've never seen or heard from other than a book that was written two thousand years ago. sorry just annoyed at all the right wing christian bs i've been seeing on this board lately.

That's exactly why therapy is bullshit. All you need is the Non Prophets forum to vent.
