What kinds of things did you or people you know want to see a therapist about?
Sometimes I wonder. Therapy helped me sort out my life when I was so depressed I was ready to die. But now I’m going to couples counseling because my wife wants to, and I don’t really know why. Things are going well. What the hell is a “tune-up,” anyway? I feel like I should be more sympathetic to this than I am.
I know someone who has been seeing a psychoanalyst (Freudian style), for more than 25 years. What is that all about? I sometimes feel like analysis is a recreational activity for some people. Do you know anyone like that?
