Identifying a problem serves as a source of income for your provider and will only generate an income if you continue to seek their opinion.
If you cave in to their opinion, their approval will be based upon the use of medications prescribed to convince you of whatever it is they need to continue to generate income produced by the use of medications.

Sometimes, what we want is not what others would like of us for themselves.
We'd also recommend an article called Survival in the Digital Age, and the companion piece Survival Ground, to serve as early warning to others of the dangers of negativity, judgmental thinking, or the evaluation of things we don't fully understand. While many may point to this work and cite the open use of the word God, or the folly of putting faith in Him, we have yet to find a better example of Creation than the one we've been given, and cannot have contempt for the workbench we've been given to work on.
