21. Years ago, I had a therp who encouraged me to read and post on
the newsgroup alt.support.depression. In time, I came to think that that particular group wasn't healthy for me (when a person miscarried and blamed it on an argument between her, me, and another poster). Not long after that, I quit my therapist. I came to think of him as nothing more than a glorified phone psychic. Every time my depression lifted, he'd find some new "issue" to "confront" which would send me back into a funk. I began to see a pattern.

Just don't get caught up into thinking your therp is omniscient. Some of 'em are crazier than any client to ever darken their door. Not all of 'em, but caveat emptor.
