I really don't like posting about this stuff, I know it wasn't "in my head" but maybe it wasnt "all that bad"....

(Someone asked me what happened with a particular irl abuser)

I don't know.. maybe I'm wrong about the following...

It does seem that in this country there is a time limit on receiving help, as I saw a therapist for more than 2 years, even though I paid for it.... well they think there is nothing they can do, or nothing they want to do, other than meds

You matter a lot; I'm sorry some other people made you believe that you don't. Don't listen to them.

Maybe this particular therapist does not know what to do. But it is easier dismissing you than saying "I do not know". At least, they should advice you about other professionals. Perhaps this site, or any other, should foster a dialogue between doctors and patients/clients on an equal footing. Many of us have problems with doctors. I have a huge problem of trust with doctors and it is not unfounded. I believe you feel the same, Fuzzy. But it is not easy for patients to be heard

I think he couldn't bear it that I had read some books by master therapists... sure I would have consulted one of them if they hadn't lived on opposite sides of the globe

No wonder I made him feel "impotent" - on some level he knew he didn't have the compassion or skill that they had

Right

One doctor I consulted said how "they" ... "don't listen or understand" - this is the doctor who has moved out of the area..
