    My relationship with my therapist has been rocky for a while now. During my last 2 visits she accused me of using everyone in my life including herself.I have been diagnosed with intermittent explosive disorder and feel its best that Im not around people. She does not support my choice. Yet she takes credit for me not being in any fights the last 2 years I have been seeing her. I feel the only reason ive stayed out of trouble is lack of interaction with people. I think its time for a change.

    I think that for me, it was being unheard…the therapist was very rude and dismissive when I would share my feelings with her.
    After 6 sessions, I decided not to see her anymore. She had a terribly nasty attitude, almost like she was looking down on me because I needed help!

    Another therapist I had was a very nice lady but also somewhat unprofessional, in a different way.
    She would often complain about how “burned out” she was from listening to people talk about their problems.
    Sure, it can be a stressful job, but that is what she was being paid to do. It made me feel guilty despite the fact that I was there to receive help.
    Not to mention that my appointments started being canceled and all kinds of excuses were being made as to why she couldn’t see me.
    It’s hard to find good therapy where I live, so I’ve just given up on it for now.
