    Howard has to be the worst advertisement for psychotherapy ever. It's never done a thing to puncture his severe narcissistic personality disorder; at best it has helped him manage it, and at worst it has given him all the appearance of someone with empathy while ruining his authenticity and, thus, his show.

    I can't even believe that, in 2012, anyone goes to a Freudian therapist. That's like going to a typewriter repairman to fix your computer, innit?

    Contributed yes. But his Greed and lack of acceptance also played a big part as well . . . :coffee:

    - - -

    Greed = Taking Jackie's Marbles away from him . . .

    Lack Of Acceptance = Dumping the only woman who ever truly loved him (Alison) . . .

    The problem is that Howard goes to a jewish shrink. Howard always have his racists rants that only jewish doctors are good.

    Howard's problem is because he is in-breaded. 5000 years with babies only within the tribe have made many of the mentally ill. Look at Woody Allen for example. They are obsessed with money, gold, power. All should be theirs. No one else should have anything. Then during upbringing they are brainwashed how they are the chosen ones. That everybody else hates them. And that they have right to abuse, lure and do anything against the non-jews.

    Howard mentally ill ego + his crazy sick obsession with fame/money/trophy whores can't be helped by a doctor that shares these values.

    It would be like a Taliban went to a Taliban shrink. Do you really believe the Taliban shrink would say that they are retarded with their Jihad and that there are no 72 virgins?

    Howard don't want to be better.

    BTW. Howard also uses the shrink times to "cheat" on Beth. Fucking Ralph and his new boyfriend John Varvatos.

    Once upon the 1990's it was way cool to talk about self improvement through psychoanalysis. It's remained in favor with those who reside in the Hampton area, (since a shit load of shrinks own out there) So Howard saying he goes 3x -4x a week makes him the super cool kid he never was outside of camp Wellmet while portending to pay through the nose yearly to be...enlightened about his inner self.

    The only "King of all xxxxxx is "The King of all Long Cons".

    He's so good at it now that he doesn't even worry about his contradictions as we are the only ones that have a clue that he makes them daily. That matters not to Howie as he paints us as the psychopaths on air.

    Over 20 years of going to the shrink 3 or 4 times a week and daily meditation make The Pelican a walking, talking poster of ridicule and contempt for therapy and meditation. It's actually worse than Robin's green drink in that his level of commitment towards something that obviously does not work very well is beyond Robin's silly fad.

    There are people who will say, "well, talk-therapy is like exercise so going several times a week isn't very odd at all." Ahem. You are supposed to learn something from therapy.

    And really, what the fuck does The Wig need therapy for, anyway? What is he stressed about? Money? Come on.

    I figure it's mortality for Howard, which is pretty common for very wealthy people. They realize they can't buy their way out of death.

    This whole "meditation" and "therapy" crap is nothing but cover for the real problem Howard has with facing his mortality. If he bitches about how his dad is going deaf or how his potato was done not quite right it keeps him from facing inevitability.

    The Mob is quoted as saying that seeing a Shrink is merely another racket for the Jews . . . :coffee:

    In the Mental Health industry these days, every possible emotion is considered a disorder.

    A person in a coma is considered to have ideal mental health. Not too happy, not too sad.

    Howie goes 3-4 times a week at 400 bucks for visit. He spends a lot more on a shrink then what the average American makes in a year.

    I go to a shrink because I'm an asshole and I treat people shitty. It's my behavior and my shrink does not make excuses for me; rather, he assists me in seeing that I'm not the only fucker on the planet and I need to STFU an act like a human. Yes...I've had shitty things happen in my life but that is no excuse for being a shit ass.
    I have no idea wtf Howard visits, but it's pretty obvious they have no clue on how to deal with Stern and his own brand of narcissism. It sounds like he adds to fuel to the fire enabling Howard to be an even bigger dick bag.

    this

    and it really feels like the therapist is in cahoots with Beth. How much did she pay him to plant the "blowjobs are degrading to women" seed in Howard's melon?

    :facepalm:

    If blowjobs are degrading to women, what is whacking off to babysitter porn?

    I heard the shrink also thinks it's degrading for an unemployed wife to spend more than 2 nights a week with her husband.

    and while Howard's compass has always been off, except where money was concerned, now it seems to point 180 degrees from the "right" direction..............towards everything: he's taking hard lines against things he should be open to or embracing, he's forgiving, or even embracing and nurturing the worst traits in himself and Beth, etc.

    He'll encourage a talentless child on national television but can't call a "bro" and wish him well on his new radio show.

    He'll call Ricky Gervais "mean" for busting on a few deserve-to-be-busted-on celebs at the Golden Globes.

    He'll play Mr. Nice Guy to new celeb "friends" yet harbor resentments towards the people who fucking made him who he is today.

    Chelsea Handler could get Howard on the phone before Jackie, Artie, Billy, John, or K.C. could.

    In fairness to all therapists, they don't really promise to cure any disorder, only to help one manage it. In Howard's case I think he believes he's cured, but in many ways is worse.

    True Freudian shrinks in this day and age are a bit dated, you'd think there would have to be a couple top notch shrinks in NYC that graduated residency in the past 12 years that could offer Howard more current care with less bullshit.

    :secret: Howard doesn't want to be cured

    as with Beth, he got what he was looking for in a shrink: subservience

    I think Beth has at least partially "evolved" out of that role, but the shrink clearly hasn't. He's still in check-cashing mode, there being no legally binding marriages to and therefore no divorce settlements with shrinks.

    It's funny....................and by "funny" I mean "pukingly sad"..........................to think that the two people closest to him are to-the-bone whores. I can't imagine being so far out at a loveless sea. That poor fucker can't even see land.
