Just freaking crazy??

I have a friend. He's great, he's a really nice guy. He's a therapist. OMG he is just off his rocker. He takes three or four antipsychotic medications every day. He drives me insane with his obessive ramblings. He obesses over women and any other little issue that comes up. He's OCD to the extreme. When I listen to him go on and on and on about something I just can't help but think "And YOU get paid to help people!??"  It's pretty mad... and it really makes you wonder..

My therapist thinks my mother is mean because she has a demon in her. He is crazy.

I quit going once I ran into my therapist at a few social events. Turns out she's a bigger nutjob than me :/

I work in the field and I cringe at some of the people that work as therapists and counselors.  I really believe that graduate programs need to screen people better and not let people who are not stable come into the field.

I trust therapists about as much as I trust the crazy guy at the gas station holding the sign that says "Jesus loves you".......shrinks just tell you what you want to hear. I quit going to them...stopped taking any of their manmade happy drugs and started smoking pot......guess who feels 100 times better? Lol

I competely agree. If you have to take more medications than the people you are supposed to be helping, then you probably should have a different job.

I am going into that field and will more then likely be taking more meds then my patient. Mines for a chronic illness though. Does that count?

I am a teacher and I can assure you that the image most people have of us is wrong. I can only assume it is the same way with therapists.

Well this will probably start bashing but oh well. If they have it under control then it should not be an issue. I help people in my support group even though I have issues. I am trying to get a job in human services.
