I see. I certainly didn't mean to imply that those who are in counseling/ see counseling as valuable are somehow deficient.

Sorry if I offended anyone. Counseling is not the right choice for me is probably what I should have said.

That is a better way of putting it. Thank you. :)

Reason, I may be making an assumption, but I believe you're from a different culture (Russian, or at least influenced by it). It sounds a little like what you're dealing with is the slightly different expectations between two cultures. That's a subtle kind of culture shock. I wonder if there isn't a place you could go to find other people who are dealing with that transition, and as a result can point out some of the subtle differences between cultures that many people take for granted.

Thread closed.  Please refrain from the armchair psychology.  I also think several of the posters in this thread could benefit from rereading the rules.
