Telling The Psychiatrist What He/She Wants To Hear

Some people dealing with mental illness have issues which are so severe that they need to be hospitalized until they start to feel better emotionally and are ready to leave the hospital.

But their are those who are released from the hospital too early because they tell the psychiatrist that they're doing better than they actually are just so they can be released from the hospital. They just tell their doctor what they want to hear.

However, to do this is a bad, bad idea.

If someone is released from the hospital too early because they lie to the psychiatrist, they're not doing themselves any favors. If the person chooses to do this, their is a good chance that in less than twenty four hours they'll end up back in the hospital because they can't handle challenges in their life.

I've been in mental hospitals as a patient before back in the day. And I've never told the psychiatrist that I was doing better than I actually was because I knew that by doing that, I wasn't doing myself any favors.
