I still see two shrinks regularly: my bike and my sailboat. Both clear my head and renew my spirits. They probably still cost me a few hundred bucks and hour if the truth were known but the treatment has been 100% successful. I'm still sane after 50 years of riding and about 60 of sailing.
Since I am not smart enough to figger out how to do meditation,I go for a ride,or kill some hapless critter.Sometimes I just sit and stare at pretty much nuthin,this is not meditation,just staring at nuthin.
Staring at nothing is every morning for 30 minutes.
the only relief I got was bitching about my wife. But hell! I can do that with my friends over bikes and beer! Right?! Am I right? Seriously. Am I right?
'You'll never see a bike outside a Shrinks office.'......Unless the shrink rides to work !
My regular doctor, who's a retired Flight Surgeon, told me shrinks are sick people who want other people to be dependent on them. Having emotional problems? He's says fly a plane, sail a boat, ride a bike, get an escape activity for yourself and only yourself. If others join in, great, if others turn it into a chore, get another and don't let them in. He said watching sports doesn't count, you have to be active in what you do and you have to really lose yourself in it.Yeah Scotty, why pay some guy to listen when you can do it over a beer with other guys and have fun doing it?
And for what its worth....... A payment on a bike is much cheaper than seeing a therapist with no insurance. Those jerk offs want $80-$200 just to to analyze you for 30 minutes, tell you all your faults, and tell you to come back in a few weeks so we can do it all again. The last shrink I was seeing seemed to be a cool dude and made me feel better..... For about 8 months after I realized he just kept telling me the same crap over and over again. the only relief I got was bitching about my wife.
Absolutely! Or as a shrink would say, "Whadda you think?" Bare
That surgeon must be very bitter about something
