I used to bring my doctor gifts at almost every visit. (Once every other month). It was not a people-pleaser thing; I healthy self esteem, it was just because I really appreciated that he gave me $6,000 worth of medication. (This was not a psychiatrist)

Why was this looked from his standpoint as nerdy or Nebuch?

Mimi,
I have a hard time understanding why you keep posting here, after insulting and hurting members of this community more than once without apologizing.
That being said, I don't want to hurt you back (actually i'm trying to get past wanting to hurt you back), so here goes.
If you turn this situation around and see it as an outsider, if one of your clients (I assume you were involved with other emotionally unwell people- you've mentioned that you worked at Ohel) would tell you that he/she would bring presents to Dr. every visit - or if they would bring YOU presents every visit- would you think that's ok, regular, just an extra thankful patient? Or maybe you would feel a little weirded out?
I know from my own experience that my feeling of never being able to thank someone enough comes from a place of not feeling worthy.
Most people who suffer from depression don't ONLY have the low mood or whatever. Guilt, low self image etc. are also DSM criteria for depression. In my opinion, and i certainly can be wrong,it seems that you are trying really hard to separate yourself from those who are 'really' crazy (quoting you) and isolate the part of the illness that seems 'safe' .
Just something to think about.

Mimi, I for one will not simply forget the hurtful things you said.
If you can't bring yourself to make amends to the people you hurt then I'm uncomfortable with you being part of our discussions.
