  • Side Effects: None
  • Adherence: Usually
  • Burden: Not at all
Dosage: 50 min Weekly
Advice & Tips: My meetings with Humberto are very efficacious. I am at the point now when I can miss meetings and not be disturbed. Less dependency. He monitors my medication and we talk, me sometimes haltingly. I really, really appreciate the opportunity to see him every week. It's easier to maintain stability (rather than having to wait 4/5/6 weeks to see him...) And he listens, something no one else does. Therefore I tell him things I'm likely not to tell others. And what I really, really appreciate is the fact that he talks to me, even during the first 17 years when my vocabulary consisted of "Yes," "No," "I don't know," and some shoulder shrugs and some head shakes/nods. He never gave up on me. And now I can talk-not a lot, but I talk.

  • Perceived effectiveness for Mood disorder; Asperger's Syndrome; Psychotherapy: Major
  • Side Effects: None
  • Adherence: Always
  • Burden: Not at all
Dosage: 50 min Weekly
Advice & Tips: Humberto talks. I barely talked for the first 17 years that I saw him - but he still talked. About all I said was "yes," "No," and mostly "I don't know." I really like him for that. It must have been terribly frustrating, but only once did I see him frustrated. Now I am able to talk to some extent about thinks other people are not interested in hearing - mood/anxiety issues, Asperger's problems. I see him every week now for a full session and only miss if I am out of town for some compelling reason. I need someone to talk to about things others won't listen to. And I really like having the history (it's now 22 or 23 years). I can't imagine having to go through all of this again with another person. I don't think I could do it. What's interesting was that during the years that I didn't speak, he still seemed to have a pretty good grasp, except for the Asperger's, of what was going on.

Advice & Tips: Currently, and for the last 8 years, in therapy with a Licensed Clinical Social Worker who I really like. She helps me with medications and always checks in with me on physical health issues. She is very good about suggesting new activities and literature and is up on many new things. She also learns from me, which I appreciate. I used to see a therapist who has a PhD. in psychology. I was with him for about 13 years, with individual appointments and also group therapy. He is very old now and has somewhat lost his "edge." I recommend staying with therapy, even if you get angry and want to quit. I especially recommend therapy for newly sober alcoholics and addicts.

Advice & Tips: Public transportation is not practical here unfortunately. I am usually not able to drive myself to my appointments. Friends used to drive me, but they got too busy. Now my husband works from home one day each week so he can take me to my appointments. My functioning is greatly increased as a result of my weekly therapy sessions. Sometimes I don't want to go because I don't feel well enough to work on any challenge, but my therapist urges me to meet with her anyway so she can monitor me. I guess it's like being an outpatient who has to check in regularly. I am so challenged by day-to-day living, I am not able to work on long-term goals. I look forward to when I can.

Advice & Tips: Life is so much better with Lisa in it. I've learned so much and gained so much insight about myself during the past several years. I feel much more serene, peaceful and functional than I did before this treatment started. When I started seeing Lisa, I went 1-2 times a month. Now I only see her 2 times a year although she's always available for emergencies.

Advice & Tips: I am so grateful to have a psychologist. Being a doctor. I have told her my major issues an a child. Also, I can talk about sex and relationships which is the major conflick of my bipolar, social phobia illness. I used to have alot of shame with her being still having alot of anexity,fear but being a psychologist I feel no subject taboo. She is the one who dianosied my social phobia last year. She got my to go to to health clubs and to the depression and bipolar self help meeting? Now she we both think i am ready to join the therapy group with people like me. I will go to two sessions and commit for a year once a week. She will facilitate the group the group has 4 and I will be five and capped at 5. One person has been there for years. I am so scared I have tears in my eyes. I need help. Like someone told me I will be under medical supervision for life. Mark
