    I've been listening off and on since 1996, more diligently since coming to SIRIUS, and I can't remember any proof that he actually sees a shrink other than what comes out of Howard's mouth. Is this also schtick?

    If he does they have to be the worst therapist of all time, or they're fleecing howard into going without actually helping him. I mean look at the guy.

    he was seeing a couples' therapist with Allson for a couple of years (or so) before they split.

    Frankly, I don't see the point of lying about this.

    Of course he is...but that therapist has bought a summer home and a large yacht with Howies issues. Why cure him? He probably needs to send his kids to college at this point.

    Who else is he going to talk to? His wife? She's so fucking dumb that the only way they can bond is splitting a bottle of wine while looking at Page Six and the Enquirer like a couple of chicks and doing photo shoots because that and red carpet events is all that broad is good for.

    Yes and he is on medication but will deny it till death. I would guess he is on Zoloft and Xanax.

    It seems like his therapist is deliberately making him worse.

    I think he does - Howard would probably mention the guy's name if he could get a discount, but that is outweighed by his fear that someone would break into the therapist's office and get access to the files on his sessions with Howard.

    I hadn't thought of that. While he's paying for his therapist's 50-minute hour, Howard can speak about anything he chooses, without interruption. Due to Beth's partial retardation, there no hope of semi-intelligent conversation at home, so he buys it.

    Therapy is one thing but 3-4 times a week like Howchie claims is total bullshit. If he were seeing a therapist that much he would be in a psych ward somewhere.

    I always believed him when he said he refused meds, but it would explain his 180 degree turn around on everything

    I think it's the only explanation...............................he has lost large portions of his personality over the last decade or so, and whatever was left, like you said, he's done a 180 on. He's literally been turned inside-out and upside-down. The only way that happens is via pharmaceuticals.

    But he's not just taking regular anti-depressants.....................they've got to be laced with something.................estrogen, Mark Harris' sperm..................something that's adding a healthy dose of effemination, if not downright "fag", to his unholy transformation.

    From Natural News: "Seven Things Your Psychiatrist Doesn't Want you to Know"

    "1. Making money is priority #1.


    Of course, you can't hold this against anyone. Health practitioners need to make a living, too. More power to them if they do it while helping others, right? Maybe. The dirty little secret in mental health, however, is that some clients are treated as cash cows. Here is how it works.

    A person with means to pay for therapy, Martha, enters counseling in hopes of getting to the root of problems and making some changes. The counselor arranges for weekly visits at $125 per hour. Great.

    Two visits into the treatment the counselor discovers just what Martha needs to solve the problem at the heart of her dilemma.This could be a short-term gig. Not so fast. The counselor decides to hold off. Martha may not be "ready" for the solution yet.

    The same logic applies when the counselor has constructive criticism or challenging feedback for Martha. Hold off. Let's not offend her. She pays my bills! Let's keep her around as long as possible."

    I wonder if he talks about his guilt over abandoning his wife and daughters for a vapid famewhore.

    Guilt? He doesn't seem to have any guilt.

    Yeah he is most likely on some type of anti-depressant, but if he is really going to therapy 3 to 4 times a week, all these years he must be a complete emotional wreck. Believe me he wouldn't spend any more than necessary, and he is too savvy to be completely "fleeced" this long by anyone at this point. If you really need that much therapy, I can't understand why you wouldn't be on meds. I guess it's just another lie.

    Dawg you're definitely on to something...The castrated one has admitted on the air to having OCD...so it wouldn't surprise me that he's taking drugs for this disorder...

    Narcissistic and a drug addict
