When NO “treatment” would be preferable to a bunch of ugly words

I know I’ve said similar before.. these words keep popping up

A cruel doctor who had no ****ing clue

Thank the stars above I have a “purpose” despite all the arrogant and sick morons in this world

(Not about anyone on pc)

Fuzzy, the fit between you and your doc? (GP??) hasn't been a good fit, perhaps it's time to find a new psych or therapist.


Time to start fresh with someone new, new beginning's etc...and all that crap lol

I still haven’t decided whether or not to eat that G.P. I think I’ll have to be kind to my digestive system and refrain

I read that it's only in modern society that you get that treatment.
In past people were different, we had shamans etc. who understood
us and that "weird" people were valued due to their virtues which
in modern society are looked down on or thought to be not normal.

That person's disability was compensated by a virtue of having something
that many normal people do not.

It's just a name for a thought process. Just like we process hunger.

I think the kids born now have a great start....in understanding.

Late response, but as far as treatment goes, but I found that having someone who I can trust with emotions and who I know won't reject me is very important as a basis for healing. Also as far as therapeutic methods when it comes to AVPD, I've found gradual exposure therapy most helpful, starting off with small things like "Thank you." when someone did something for me and then slowly developing things like saying Hi, How are you?, Did you watch this movie? etc.
