Hello, I am getting treatment from a new psychologist and I just am not sure I should stay with it. She seems very nice, however, she also seems to be focused on bipolar disorder being "just another trivial illness" . She says things like "things have changed and its not like it use to be". I think she is really wrong. I guess I"m looking for her to cure me? I don't think she can. She gives me handouts and suggests books to read, however, how can this help? I know this illness is biologically based and I don't think all of the reading in the world can change that. She says I should give it time, and learn to intervene when I get manic or depressed? Say what? Anyone out there stressed over a new psychologist besides me? I need imput?????? Thanks
