This is a question for everyone: is it that hard to find a good therapist?

Last therapist was always 10 minutes late, and answered her phone during sessions from her babysitter, UPS guy, etc.

This therapist I go to seems to have no compassion, although I don't know if that's his job. Thoughts, anyone?

I went through a difficult time after an accident in which I had a traumatic brain injury, inner ear damage, and cervical spine damage.

The therapist has told me "It was just a bump in the head." When I told my therapist that my doctor had not seen an accident like mine often, my therapist mentioned something to the effect of my doctor not having much experience in my type of brain injury. When I told him my neurorehabilitation physician told me benzodiazepines will make my brain injury worse and to not take them, he asked me for the phone number of my doctor because he (my psychologist) "wanted to educate him." Maybe you have some thoughts, but I just think if my brain injury specialist tells me something, I don't know how a psychologist can question it, since my doctor specializes in brain injury and my psychologist does therapy and cannot prescribe medication or tell me which medication is good for me or not.

Agreed. I know this is a difficult thing to do, but I feel you should find another therapist. There are psychotherapists out the who are compassionate, ethical and have common sense. It's just not easy to find them and to start over...
I'm sorry you have to go through this after you suffered so much.. ((((((hugs)))))

Yea I had no idea until yesterday until an x-ray showed spine damage and soft tissue damage in my neck. My doctor prescribed neurorebabilitation (no clue what that means but guessing it's similar to physical therapy just for your brain)

I just have no idea how this happened. I felt no pain at the exact time of the impact. I assume I was unconscious

I wish i knew what to say. that sounds terrible. But i'm glad in a way that you have scientific proof that your injury is real and not in your head as others have suggested.

Ha- you would think. Despite this "people" still say this is psychological, I'm faking it...whatever. I just can't focus on what the whole world says
