Question

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I am writing a novel kinda based on the emotional abuse that I went through and was wondering if anyone could tell me if a psychiatrist would recommend that you leave an abuser or would that be a decision that you would have to come to on your own.

I think it depends on the psychiatrist.

Ann 1981 The counselor I went to years ago said she would be interested in seeing how I would do separated from my husband.

She left it up to me to decide.

I went to a psychiatrist to be evaluated and diagnosed and sometimes for counseling because my insurance company

expected it. I also went to a center for counseling and after seeing a therapist two or three times they ask me to see a

psychiatrist to be evaluated and then after every three months or sooner to evaluate my mental status and if my

medication was working well. I talked to them about my husband, but don't think at that time I knew it was abuse. I had

other problems I also saw them for. I think sometimes the abuse made my problems worse.
