Has anyone had success with a psychologist or psychiatrist? I tried both, one insisted I be hospitalized with mental patients so I'd have people to 'share with' while the other said ALL cancer patients should be on psychotropic medications. These ideas are not in line with me and my needs and actually can be described as generic answers. Anyone know if counselors exist who deal solely with cancer patients on individual basis and not rely on cancer support groups? we are individuals afterall and personally, I do not share with a group what I would with a licensed physician.
