My psychiatrist lies to me

Postby anonymouswom » Sat Jul 18, 2020 9:46 pm

My psychiatrist told me that every man likes to fantasize about dominating a woman, and I know he was lying. He always does that, lies and then when I ask him "why did you say that?" he tells me that he never said that.
I knew he was lying, but I keep asking myself how many times did he lie to me.
I don't know what to do. I have no one to talk to, my family doesn't like me and does not like talking to me, I have no friends, and I have a lot of questions, and the only person I trusted was my psychiatrist, if he lies to me, what do I do?
I know what you are probably thinking, "find another psychiatrist". But what if the other psychiatrist starts lying to me too? I will not be able to recognize the lies.

Hi anonymouswom,

It must be hard, the situation you are in... And I think there is no easy answer to your question - who can you trust and how to find that person.
Instead of giving you advice let me share with you my personal experience.
7 years ago, after a breakup I had a very hard time in my life. I realized that I can't trust the people (my family, my friends) who were supposed to support me. It felt like dissolving in the middle of huge emptiness without anything to hold onto.
I started to see a therapist, but it just didn't get better. After half a year I gave it up and left therapy.
But I knew that I can't handle this alone. So some months later I contacted another therapist. Even if I was anxious about our meeting, after the first session I felt much optimist about dealing with my $hit.

We are all unique and we all need different people to make us feel good. But if it doesn't feel good, I think you are not in the right place. I wish you courage to find the people who you need!

1) If you're able to recognize it with this one, why wouldn't you be able to with another? You might be.

2) This one isn't helping you, and sounds rather toxic / gaslighty, so either you stay where you are or you take a chance on a new one. Those are your options. Find the courage to keep searching for the right one.
