I am trying to figure out why he is seeing me
Mental Health Professional: Dr. Z, Psychologist replied 2 years ago

Thank you for your response. Unfortunately I cannot read his mind, so I cannot tell you exactly why he is seeing you. It is possible that even though he spends time with these other younger men and women that he genuinely cares for you and is attracted to you, and that age has nothing to do with it. Also there is the possibility that he believes because you are the same age that it is more appropriate to date you based on social standards even though he may feel more connected to those younger than him; but will not date those younger than him in fear of breaking traditional social standards. Its impossible to say for certain since I have never spoken to him, nor can I read his mind on what he is exactly thinking.

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
