Implications of "dysthymia" diagnosis?

I had an introductory meeting with a therapist to seek some help regarding gender identity issues, and on his bill, in addition to the DSM code for gender dysphoria, he has diagnosed me with 300.4, "dysthymic disorder". What implications are there if I submit this bill to my insurance provider? [more inside]

Noise therapy?

When a person with schizophrenia plays several different radios tuned to different stations at once, as Roky Erickson did in the documentary about him, how does it affect them? Is it soothing? Independent of how a person with schizophrenia may feel about this practice, is it considered helpful or therapeutic by medical professionals? Finally, how common is this practice among people with schizophrenia?

I can't convince my anxiety-afflicted mom to get therapy, but she'll read a book. What book should it be?

I've been trying to convince my anxiety-afflicted Mom to get therapy for ages. She finally said that if I were to buy her a book, she would promise to read it, and perhaps that would lead to finally giving therapy a shot. She's pushing 70 and has to deal with a new addition to the family who is aggressive and toxic, so I think its urgent for her to get a better handle on her mental state. [more inside]

WWTTD (What Would This Therapist Do?)

Anglican Christian filter: I am interested in working for an Anglican non-profit organization as an intern-therapist. I am a non-practicing Christian, but have a strong spiritual belief (think: Eckhart Tolle/Eastern philosophy) and was formally trained in transpersonal psychotherapy, which by definition is rooted in spirituality and encourages one to "transcend beyond oneself." I am not inherently opposed to religion, but do not follow strict Catholic practices. Should I reconsider being interested in this position? I need more subjective info on Anglican beliefs, and Wikipedia isn't really helping in this area. [more inside]

Is paying a therapist the difference between their rate and what insurance covers reasonable?

I see a therapist on a regular basis. I have health insurance with a small copay for these visits. Some time ago, my therapist asked that I pay the difference between the fee they bill for (their full rate) and the negotiated rate that my health insurance pays to them. This increases my out-of-pocket costs dramatically. Is there something odd about this arrangement?

Ever used an Alpha-Stim machine?

I have an anxiety disorder, and my psychiatrist tried an Alpha-Stim (cranial electrotherapy stimulation) on me a few days ago. The experience was pleasant but not lasting. I'm told I'll have to use it 2-3 times a week, 20 minutes at a time for a few weeks before I'll know if it's truly effective. So, I'm wondering if anyone here has regularly used one of these or knows anyone who has, and what the experience was like?
