Dear Scott,
It should be me doing the apologizing. I clearly get out of bounds sometimes, and it is not acceptable to myself or others.

Though I often show support to a rather unique approach to psychiatry, in reality I support all approaches to psychiatry equally. It just depends on the individual circumstance and the individual person. I support and believe in conventional psychiatry. I support and believe in Jensen psychiatry. I support and believe in psychotherapy. I do not mean to sound as if I support one more than the other, because I don't. It just depends on the particular circumstance. By seeming to be entrenched in just one view, which just happened to be un-mainstream-like, I think I stirred up some emotions inadvertently. The worst part is that there is this doctor by the name of Jensen out in California who is really quite an awesome psychiatrist in practice, a humble and professional gentleman on the phone, and I inadvertently cause him undue and unfair judegment. He doesn't deserve the unfair critique I stir up. It's my fault, not his. My apologies, not only to you, but to everyone else here and to Dr Jensen.

As I see it, each approach to psychiatry has it merits and its downfalls. Each has a time and place of appropriateness. Even from country to country, or continent to continent we see varying approaches. Or even just from one doctor office to another. None has yet proven to be superior to another. I am open minded by nature and see how each has pros, cons, time, and place. It is not appropriate or accurate for me to appear one sided. By seeming to take a one-sided stance, I inadvertently drew criticism to someone else not even involved, stirred up emotions from the mainstream, and really didn't do much good from it all. My apologies.

I look forward to your posts, so please keep them coming. I learn things I didn't know from your posts. Like c-FOS for example. (what is that? rocket fuel for the space shuttle or something?) LOL :-) There's a lot I obviously don't know, so thank you for keeping me in bounds. :-)
