    I am a firm believer in therapy and think we all could benefit from talking to a doctor on a regular basis, and we all know that Howard has undergone much therapy over the years. Or so he claims. Do you guys really think that he goes 3 times a week as he claims? Do you guys think the doctors have questioned him about being anorexic? or having body dismorphia? Also do you think that doctors tackle his frugality??

    It's impossible to know exaclty what goes on in that office, but I think we can all agree that it ain't helping matters.

    He is getting Freudian swindled. He's still on some "tell me about your mother" shit when he does his pop psycho-analyzing of guests that he laughably calls interviews.

    The thing is, the Freudian psychoanalysis is so hopelessly outmoded and counter-productive with Howard. It is vagueness that feeds his neuroses and allows him to continually
    "wound" himself with the past and the present. That is why he's a 60 year old billionaire who is still beefing with his 90 year old parents.

    He needed something more practical, honest, concrete and cut the bullshit, like Cognitive Behavioral Therapy.

    After sixteen years I think the main benefit is his shrink buys a new Mercedes or Porsche every year and goes on vacation for a month every August.

    His therapist has tricked him. If you are that fucked up they you need therapy three times a week for sixteen years, your either a serial killer or your therapist sucks. His "therapist" should have their license taken away. And Howard thinks Chiropractors are quacks.

    Therapy makes him worse, it feeds his victim mentality when he should have realized his childhood was much better than most kids and he should be grateful to his parents for the stable home they provided. The guy has hundreds of millions of dollars from being a glorified dj, he should be the last person on Earth in therapy because his life is so hard. The faggit has no clue what a hard life is.

    Yes. I wouldn't doubt that he spends half of his day talking to his therapist on the phone too, tbh. He's an addict.

    Wiggy is holding out hope that his shrink can cure his cock love. It's a shame Scott had the operation.

    It is hard to believe anything he says anymore. He can't keep his lies straight, how are we expected to?

    Anyone going to therapy more than once a week or once every other week on a regular basis either has some serious issues or is getting robbed by his/her therapist. Or both.

    Most people can handle their lives and issues without seeing a shrink every other day.

    Howard's not looking for a "cure," and he doesn't want to graduate from therapy. Howard relies on his therapist to be a stand-in for a person who genuinely cares about his thoughts and feelings-- something that he doesn't have or deserve to have in his real life. Most of us can turn to our friends and loved ones for this kind of outlet, but Howard's friends and loved ones are either superficial, inauthentic, and paid-for -- or lifelong victims of his selfish and inconsiderate ways, with fractured relationships that don't inspire genuine care. Howard needs someone to turn to so that he can complain about those people, so that therapist is here to stay.

    I would like proof that he's going to a therapist at all. THEATER OF THE MIND!

    I hope Howard's therapist is Hannibal Lecter.

    So much this. I'd venture to say it's made him worse. Therapy, like anything, can be overdone. The man needs to talk to a professional about every little life issue he has.

    If Hannibal Lecter was his therapist, he would have ate him a long time ago before he wasted away to skin and bones.
