Paul, Thanks fo ryour response, The last thing i want to do is wast money and it sounds as though that is not going to be an option for me. I live in a large cite and have great docs but feel that I am not understood at all? I hurt so badly and need something or someone to understand me. no one gets me and i thought after a week long eval, that the issues would be flushed out. God help me and thanks again for your post

> > The clinic has moved to TX now and I cannot imagine that they are still into psycho-anaylsis. They are recommended as a a top 5 psychiatric clinic by US news world report. I copied an explanation from their website and wanted to see if it sounds familiar to you.

> Understanding a problem will not make it go away.
> Talking cures don't work according to 5 year follow up studies.
> If you want to sell books take an old theory and wrap it in new jargon and call it a new therapy.
> I would advise finding people who are up in the latest of Psyc-drugs – I saw nothing on their site that shows they have changed their ways. I wasted not only a HUGE sum of money, I wasted several years of effort that would have been better used taking a MAOI and focusing on school instead of my navel.
> To put it even more bluntly – they had a habit of taking credit for a patients success, but never anyones failure. I happen to have known several patients who lost their life, that IMHO may have lived, if they had gotten an antidepressant instead of psychotherapy.
> I remember one girl that was in-patient there for over a year before an outside doctor finally figured out she was very hypo thyroid – once on Thyroid medicine she was transformed – they claimed credit instead of taking responsibility for failing to properly screen for physically based disease.
> I myself was an in-patient for 3 weeks before they even did a physical.
> They moved to Texas because they failed in the market place – people know that the drugs work – some of the time on some people – and most people have figured out that the “talking cure”, however well meaning, fails to be anything other than “supportive”.
> I can not recommend them – I would also point out that you want to use objective criteria on evaluating any therapy – Even the drug studies should be taken as a grain of salt as they are 6 week studies – I don't know anyone that really needs drugs that takes them for such a short time and we really need long term studies that show what happens 5 years later.
