another stupid study update...

ok. they are really brilliant. so, my psychiatrist is just as annoyed at them as i was, cuz they were really dragging things out, right? she called them. she has an in, cuz she also works for the NYSPI, just on a study that doesn't make potential participants crazy the way this one does. anyway, i just got this piece of info from her:

this whole thing is to see if i am accepted into the stupid study. but i get the treatment for free, whether or not i'm accepted, as a token of their appreciation of my participation in their retraumitizing me.

it would have been nice if they told me that when they started evaluating me. it would have been a lot simpler, and caused me a lot less pain. now i just gotta figure out-if they don't accept me for the study, do i get to keep my therapist that i like, even though they're treating me? can i keep going to her, to get over the trauma of the evaluation?

  1. Get your psy to ask them. It's possible that the absence of other influencing factors is part of the treatment protocol, but it is also possible that it was just a control factor in the study. (Either way, with these dorkos in charge, I'm hoping you don't get in now, since you would get the therapy anyway!)


c'mon, i know you're reading this! what do you think?
