Why Won't People Sue Psychiatrists For Detrimental To A Person's Health

I just want to be 23, 22, 21, 20, 19, 18, 17, 16,15, 14, 13, 12, 11, 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5 again. I have lost 18 years of my life, that I will never get back. I regret everything. Then making it to 30 is not guaranteed, in today's world. Especially with jobs shrinking, and poor health-care. I just don't get why would psychiatrists, think people that see them, want to hurt other people. Why, just why. How should I deal with this issue. I just want to know why? Now I am going to find a job, and work! I get 685 dollars a month. Now at 24, I am going to have to get a job, and finish school. Do your parents give you money, because if I go off disability, I am going to need money.

I hope you found another psychiatrist!

people don't sue shrinks or don't sue them and win because the courts tend to trust their diagosies of a patient- the courts assume that if a person claimes they have been misshandlded by a shrink it is part of their mental disease and what they need is more therapy or an institution<br />
<br />
And baring inapporate sexual relationships between Dr. and patient where there is or at least could be DNA evidence or a pregnacy where paternaty can be established there is no solid way to proove the pateint is not simply manipilative, sociopathic, phychopathic or otherwise disterbed <br />
<br />
it doesn't help when the latter is what makes headlines

Hey sweetheart I wont tell you I know exactly what your going through because it's the last thing you wanna hear just know your not alone I too face issue like that I merely asked my psychologist what makes you believe I want to hurt other ppl? In what way have I shown you the type of behavior to want to in danger another person? You can look at my past history and go off my actions there but Dr that would not be fair because I am no longer young, noe I'm not sure what issues you face but when I addressed my Dr with questions that I stated above I never had another issue with that matter if its a family member treating you this way ask them y do they think these way everything will work out for the best sorry for the long comment i hope it helps. :)
