I actually find it very hard to express myself without swearing so always have to hold back in appts incase something slips out! Does anyone swear infront of their drs?

Lol @ Hatter, 'On many occasions they drive you it'. You could be right there !:D

I have no problem in expressing myself to Psychiatrists,.. have even told some where to go before :redface:.

I now have a really nice Psychiatrist, who I trust. He is really friendly and has a very therapeutic way about him and for this reason I don't find myself having the need to swear.

Too ****ing right I have / do ..... there not gods or special (well they are but.... ).. they just think they are ...


But you would have to hate the implied line .... "We want you to honestly express yourself ... but no swearing" ... thats got to be a farce .... :innocent:

Laughing at replys! We are obviously a foul mouthed bunch of people.

What about swearing infront of your gp? Do the same rules apply? I'm a bit worried that I might get told off!:D:D

I don't often swear in front of professionals, and never direct it at them. I swore in front of my therapist a few times and she started asking me what the meanings were behind the particular words I used! :scared:

I never swore in front of her again after that!

Go for it .. the ask me what it means and I tell them .. they should not ask questions the dont want the answer to ...


My objection to people about not using "Swear" words is this ... look them up un the dicrionary ... next to the word is the word "vulgar" ,... look up that work .. it means "common" .. to use swear words is to talk as a common person ... the whole thing is a piece of left over holyer than thou crap from the upper and middle classes and used to beat us commoners down with ... so my vote is f**k 'em ....

.... the whole thing is given far to much importance ... always make sure that you are understood ... or at least try the best you can ..........

Before you get all heated boB, I should say that when she asked the meanings behind the words I used I think she meant the meaning to me, I think she was asking a therapeutic question.:)

I think I swear more in front of my GP than I ever have done a psychiatrist, probably to do with the fact I've had about a bazillion more appointments with the GP. My GP calls me doll, which I could say is sexist/demeaning, so I guess I have a right to swear? Nah, seriously they are just normal words to me - GPs and psychiatrists use them so why shouldn't we!

Note to self, save up a load of swearing for next time I see a psychiatrist just to even out the score between them and my old doc!:)
