I don't think Freud gave his patients cocaine. Just that he used it himself.

No, I didn't mean to suggest you have anger issues. Just used that as an example of how some people just can't seem to benefit from therapy because they blame others in their lives for everything, then blame their therapist for the therapy not working and are completely unable to hear it if the therapist suggests maybe there's a deeper problem.

Therapists must also deal with people who have addictive behaviors (not necessarily drugs or alcohol, but sometimes jumping from relationship to relationship) and aren't able to change. Also people who intellectualize everything and just won't acknowledge their emotions and get resentful when the therapist tries to talk about emotions.

My point was just that I often hear people talk about how bad therapists are, how it was huge waste of time and money for them. And I know there are plenty of bad therapists - I went to a couple. But there are also bad patients, in the sense of people who just really don't want to open things up, though they may say they do.
