Today, after finally seeing a psychologist about the death of my dad and spending the longest hour of my life confessing every thought I've experienced in the 6 years since his passing, my psychologist asked me if I was walking home or if my dad would be picking me up. FML

For most people, it's not something you just get over. It's something you deal with for the rest of your life. My dad died from brain cancer when I was 12 and I struggle with it everyday.

Talking to a friend is good in times like this, yes but losing a love one is extremely hard. Seeking the help of a good professional(obviously not this one) is better. Psychologists go to school to understand exactly how the mind works and can help better than a friend can.

Plus sometimes friends aren't available when you need them. OP's decision to seek professional help is admirable. The psychologist needs their degree ripped in half and sent back all the way to undergraduate school. It sounds like they got their degree out of a cereal box and need to go back to learn something this time. Also the OP should be sure to mention what the psychologist did to people and on any review type sites that psychologists are on.

Sadly, I'm leaning towards the latter. That doesn't even sound like a slip of the tongue because the therapist didn't ask "are your parents picking you up?" or "is someone picking you up?", instead they specifically mentioned the dad. Sounds like an asshole imo. :(

The person in the fml is a psychologist. A psychiatrist has gone through medical school and can prescribe medicine. A psychologist can't prescribe. So, there is a huge difference.
