I've noticed this a lot...You go to a psychiatric evaluation, you sit there for like an hour explaining the way you think, feel, and act and trying to answer all their questions the best way you can...and then in the end it's just like "Okay, well I think that's about it. You're done." Like, really? You're not going to tell me what the hell you think is wrong with me after all that? I mean, I've had some doctors that did try to explain it to me if I asked them about it. But even then, they try to explain it without actually saying the name of the disorder that they wrote on the paper. Unless you ask them specifically what it says, they're usually not going to tell you. Why do you think that is? Do a lot of people freak out and get upset if they find out what they have or what? I usually want to know what they think I have so I can tell them if I agree or disagree cause at first I got diagnosed with Dependent Personality Disorder and granted while I do have some symptoms of it, I think the doctor misinterpreted what I was telling him because I know I definitely didn't have enough symptoms of it to be diagnosed. So good thing I ended up finding that out and mentioning it to him and he rediagnosed me with Borderline/Avoidant instead of Dependent which fits a lot better. I don't know it just doesn't make sense to me. I think the patient should know.
