Psychiatry is a farce, it is based on enforcing stereotypes as if the stereotypes are indicative of reality. Psychiatrists should not be taken any more serious than numerologists. If you want to really know what's going on, ask a psychologist.

In my opinion,the best 'therapy'one can get is to find someone most like themselves to talk to;and,that isn't always easy.Stephenie

That is perhaps the perfect therapy ever, and one reason the internet has helped many people find such friends.

I'm just a tiny bit dick of people still attempting to give psychiatrists so much power in the US when they are wrong almost every time they stray from psychology sciences. The psychiatrists should have no control over anyone's lives, especially the trans community. You can't pidgeonhole humanity like they do.

That is almost an awesome typo in the first line of the second paragraph, but it was suppose to be "sick" in case anyone can't make sense of the sentence.

I can't count how many times I wish I could find someone like myself to just cuddle up with and hug one another.Stephenie
