The Difference Between The US and UK: Therapists

An American expat living in London, Delia Lloyd, recently discovered what she believes to be the major difference between Americans and Brits. She went to her doctor looking for a general therapist and the doctor's reaction was, "You're not sick, so there's really no one I can refer you to." Through this, she realized that where Americans will complain, Brits choose to grin and bear it, coming up with their own workarounds. It does explain why Americans tend to be less content, but things seem to (at least from our side of the pond) get done faster than our European friends.

One of the benefits of socialized medicine - "no one to refer you to".
