Which country do you come from?


Nigeria. It explains a lot.

I enjoy seeing my shrink, he tells me cool stories, and I have to figure out the deeper meaning.

I wouldn't know, i think it differs from different parts of the country, at least where i'm at you're definitely looked as a helpless weak depressed bitch, and those words have been said in a conversation a while ago on the subject.

I don't know too much about it. The only people I've heard say anything about it were middle aged lecturers and they described it so casually it was almost like scheduling an appointment with a dentist.
"Welp, I'm starting to question the reason for my existence, time to see a psychologist."

I think it's a load of shit to go to them. My parents made me go a few years ago because I was "rebelling" by becoming an atheist and a vegan, but all it amounted to was some guy asking me a bunch of questions trying to come up with something that was wrong with me. I was a bit more of an asshole then, but everyone is when they are a teenager.

In my country(i'm sure other countries does as well), when you see a psychiatrist, it usualy when you have problems mentally or something problematic. While i get it psychatrist is to seek a mental doctor, you can also confide to your psychiatrist about your secrets that you have held so long that makes you miserable. Just pay a few dollars man.
