The American Psychological Association is a now a feminist and outright activist organization that puts real health on the backburner in favor of politics. It is totally understandable and even somewhat logical imo for men to be reluctant to receive psychological help when it puts their sense of masculine honor at risk. I recommend that you shop around if you don't like the person you're with after a couple visits. My therapist was super cool. I was originally looking for a male therapist, but after reading her credentials I had to pick her because she seemed to be specialized just for my problems. I actually talked to her about my thoughts regarding this change in direction that the APA had taken in the last 15 or so years. She seemed to agree it was mostly bullshit.
I did some EMDR sessions after my car accident. I covered a lot more things with it than what I was originally sent in for, which was relieving psychosomatic back pain. It's typically used on cops and soldiers for PTSD. I would not at all be surprised if I was diagnosed with PTSD. I sometimes spend days just stuck in the past and I have nightmares nearly every night where I am being harmed in some way. My therapy was actually really fun and worked well for me. I was put into this waking dream state and had these cool vague visions of colors, scents, feelings. It helped give me more of a sense of direction for my path of self-improvement. I still do a variant of this therapeutic method to myself almost every day.
I'm honestly considering going to therapy again. I'm in a really good mental state right now. I'm living my best life, but it really helped keep me focused, and it's nice to have somebody to talk to about shit that won't just make you feel like you're whining to your friends. Especially when the person you're talking to is trained to keep the conversation focused on the problem at hand and how to fix it.
