Paranoia itself isn't a disorder but is a sign of a mental disorder. There is however Paranoid Personality disorder which is a pervasive pattern of mistrust, suspicion and onset fixed delusions. I hate it when people like you jump to conclusions. Get get your facts straight buddy.
That sounds kind of pointless. I think you should try another therapist.
Next time he'll tell you to paint his house. In your minds eye, of course. Or watch his kids.
Most things during therapy or counseling seem pointless. But they're not. If you were OP, would you rather him ask "how does that make you feel?" every two minutes and not really help with the issues at all, or would you rather be told to do things that could potentially be a stepping stone on the way to perfect mental health?
just think, he paid thousands of dollars and spent 12 years in school to teach you how to build that bridge. fhl lol
That's a valid question. So many people seem to think their therapists are there to solve all their problems but that's not what it's about. OP, your doc is trying to get you to handle your issues in a healthy way. If you could get over your issues in one session, you probably wouldn't need therapy at all. Stop being hyper-critical and give it a try. You're like someone who goes to the doctor for weight problems and gets angry when he receives a diet plan. The first few times, you'll leave the same way you came. But follow the advice, stick with it, and one day you'll realise you feel a bit different or that some "issues" are now no big deal.
