OK so he's a psychiatrist which does still mean he was qualified to treat Diana. He treated her sister Sarah as well.

Yes as a medical professional he's far more qualified to treat patients with serious mental health issues like eating disorders: anorexia nervosa, bulimia, compulsive eating disorders. Also he'd have admitting privileges to a hospital and can write prescriptions.

However, Diana has been labeled "mad" by CHarles pals to try to whitewash actions of C and C. Diana had a medical condition: bulimia nervosa which she got under control.

@sandy-Bulimia like all eating disorders is NOT a simply medical condition. It is a mental illness which can have physical side effects. If it is not treated as one then the chances of a successful recovery are very low.

I understand that there is a stigma attached to the diagnosis of a mental illness, but it is wrong to mislabel such  a serious condition. Diana was unfairly labeled as "crazy," but let's not distort the facts.

Quote
A person with an eating disorder will have the best recovery outcome if he or she receives an early diagnosis. If an eating disorder is believed to an issue, a doctor will usually perform a physical examination, conduct an interview and order lab tests. These will help form the diagnosis and check for related medical issues and complications.

In addition, a mental health professional will conduct a psychological evaluation. She may ask questions about eating habits, behaviors and beliefs. There may be questions about a patient's history of dieting, exercise, bingeing and purging.

Symptoms must meet the criteria in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM) in order to warrant a diagnosis. Each eating disorder has its own diagnostic criteria that a mental health professional will use to determine which disorder is involved. It is not necessary to have all the criteria for a disorder to benefit from working with a mental health professional on food and eating issues.

Often a person with an eating disorder will have symptoms of another mental health condition that requires treatment. Whenever possible, it is best to identified and address all conditions at the same time. This gives a person comprehensive treatment support that helps insure a lasting recovery.

@Curryong. We all have our favorites, that is just natural. I also understand about the Harry-Meghan thread taking up people's time. It is so hot, you can get burnt just getting near it. Should Harry marry her, there are going to be some interesting times.

BTW @sandy "rampant bulimia" is a recognized mental illness, even though it also has physical symptoms. 

Also Charles Spencer is no hero of mine. I happen to think he is an arrogant hypocrite. I just used his letter (released by Paul Burrell) to show that Diana fell out with many, many people...not just Charles and Camilla.

Poor Raine Spencer had the misfortune to deal with the messed up Spencer children. She has my full sympathy.

Ordering a divorce (with the full support of Prince Phillip, Prince Charles, Arch Bishop of Canterbury and the Primeminister) is a clear sign the royal family wanted Diana out after panorama. Almost every analyst agrees on that.

However, Diana has been labeled "mad" by CHarles pals to try to whitewash actions of C and C. Diana had a medical condition: bulimia nervosa which she got under control.

The Queen had buried her head in the sand for years until the War of the Wales reached a crisis point. You keep forgetting Charles blabbing about his adultery to the media over a year before Diana gave her interview. And the damning things Charles said about his own parents.

Yes, but you put a halo on Charles Spencer to try to demonize Diana.

Diana and Raine made up after Diana's father died. I doubt she felt the way you think she did about Diana.

Diana did not stop seeing Dr. Lipsedge who is a psychologist

Dr. Maurice Lipsedge is a psychiatrist not a psychologist. He's a medical doctor who happened to treat eating disorders and other mental illnesses.

Did she go on seeing him in later yaers?  I thought that she got over much of her bulimia after a few years, and she started to see Suzie Orbach who was a therapist who specialised in Women's eating issues..
but overall my impression was that she was jiggiling about with lots of healers, and seers and gurus and non qualified people.. rather than sticking to a good shrink or doctor

Yes, she did continue to see Dr. Lipsedge. She did not give him up. She got the bulimia under control but she did find his counseling helpful.

Thanks for the going over of old territory!  However, you have missed something out. That is that Diana also had some redeeming qualities, something that seems to have been forgotten in the general recent praise of C and C.
and Charles and Camilla have redeeming qualities. He is a good POW, and she has been a good and supportive wife to him, and done her job as his Princess.  She may not be young and pretty like Diana, but she has generaly shown herself to be willing to get out there and shake hands and do the job.  So I can't see why she is decried.. She does the job of Princess very well, she makes Charles happy and she had an affair with a married man.. like thousands of women.  Diana did the job of Princess very well, she tried to be a good wife to Charles but was too immature and they were too differnet... and she too, like thousands of women, had a cople of affairs with married men.  So why is Diana the angel and Charles and Cam are bad?

@Curryong. I think I made this point in other threads but let me repeat it for clarity.

Charles and Camilla behaved very, very badly. Charles courted, proposed to and married a woman he did not love. He then rubbed in the fact by exchanging cuff-links with his mistress, cooing sweet nothings to her on the phone and inviting her to his wedding. After the wedding, Charles ignored his wife, trivialized her, made fun of her intellectual abilities and became jealous of her popularity. Later on he abandoned his marital bed and moved in with his mistress. When his wife complained, he refused to reconcile or work on the marriage. After the divorce, he allowed his mum to strip his former wife of her title and generally let her self-destruct.

Camilla flirted with Charles, married another man and continued an on-and-off affair with Charles. She approved a seemingly docile, stupid, malleable wife for Charles; hoping that she could maintain her hold over him. Camilla pretended to be a friend to Diana but then turned on her when Diana questioned Camilla's influence over Charles. Camilla gave biased marriage counselling to Charles which encouraged him to abandon his wife. Later on she used her superior knowledge of Charles' personality to ensure that Diana's foibles were unfavorably contrasted with Camilla's own seemingly calm personality (that is called deviousness and manipulation in simple language). Later on Camilla flaunted her position as a mistress and dismissed her rival as "that ridiculous creature". Camilla engaged in a rather troubling sex phone call with a married man (read Camillagate).  She effectively moved into a married woman's home, redecorated it and conducted an open affair in it. Eventually she accepted Charles proposal and took over Diana's home, husband, jewels, titles and position.

Having said that; both Charles and Camilla have redeeming qualities (I have mentioned them so many times, it seems pointless to repeat them). Secondly Diana was not the innocent and loving wife her fans describe. The bottom line is that neither of the parties involved are completely good or bad. That has always been my point.

@amabel. Your reading of the Higgins story is in perfect sync with my own reading of it. I could not disagree with anything you said. Camilla was asked for her opinion about certain stories and she gave it, hence helping a tabloid journalist to garner information about the Wales marriage which would otherwise have been unavailable. No journalist ever said Camilla called up to diss Diana. That Camilla did in her private letters to Charles and her friends.
what information did she give to Higgins tehn?  Sorry but I can't quite work out what your views are, I'm afraid since you seem to agree with a lot of stories that I think are suspect. Camilla gave biased marriage counselling to Chalres?? really?  where's the evidence for this. 
She did marry Charles, but was she supposed to say no to the man she loved, and never marry him, because Diana had died or was divorced from her husband.. a divorce she had wanted...
according to Dianas more fanatical fans, Camilla "called up Higgins to give info on Diana, and criticised her..." but IMO he was the one calling her up and she problaby just steered him as to whether he was right on some stories.. It was probably about Charles's social relationships, rather than his marriage. I can't see that Camilla would embark on conversaitons about this, since it would be tantamount ot admitting that she had an intimate relationship with him that impinged on his marriage.
and what would be the point of her "dissing" Diana in letters to her friends?  They probably did not like Diana either, if they were Camila's and Charles' friends. 
as for some of you remarks about Charles, I don't see that he idd these things of "trivilalising Diana" until their marriage was in trouble, several years on. Yes he did get fed up with her.  He began to put her down with his intellectual superiority, he was bored by her and avoided her.  But she was bored by him, she too gave him a hard time with throwing fits of temper, of keeping herself away form him with the children when she visited Highgrove. 
As for the "loss of the title", it was bound to happen.  it had noting to do with Charles, what title the Queen felt was suitable for Diana after a divorce.  And Di wanted out of the marriage, so if she was leaving the RF, she was not going to be titled HRH..

Why is it so hard to believe that Camilla would NOT go to the press to give her side. Stuart Higgins and biographers of Diana including Sally Bedell Smith confirm this. All the rumors are believed about Diana but when it comes to Camilla being not a saint, forget about it.

I  am choking with laughter at Charles having "intellectual superiority." What  a joke. The man is no Einstein not be a long shot.

A man with a superior intellect would not have acted like a total idiot like Charles did.

Why would Camilla say no? This is what she hoped for and schemed for.

Who are the "couple of married men? who are you the House Detective?

Yes, I can imagine the various 'Harry Potter Worlds' being wonderful experiences, especially for fans. Maybe when my money pit house renovations which seem to be taking for ever are done, I'll be off. I think it will be to the UK one, though.

Seriously though, in Oz the Universal Studios theme park, Waterworld and others are visited and enjoyed by people of all ages, including me, each year. I forgot about Disney being a major sponsor of the Florida IG. I expect that was why that quick visit by Harry occured.

^^^@Curryong-You won't be disappointed in the Harry Potter theme parks. The attention to detail is truly amazing IMHO. However you might want to skip the rides at the ones in the UK, Florida and California if you are not comfortable on stomach churning ones. (I speak from experience!)

A lot of people in their twenties and thirties go to amusement parks. In fact a fellow worker's niece and her husband (both in their early thirties) have an ambition (if you can call it that) to visit as many of these amusement parks as they can, and in fact spent their honeymoon doing just that!

I have a problem with heights so many of those very scary rides are out for me, (I remember half strangling a boyfriend on top of the Big Dipper when I was a teen!) However, I would rather like to visit a Harry Potter theme park in the UK or US one day. I loved the Harry Potter books and films. I don't think any of us really lose that inner child, and Harry may also have been reliving some memories. He was in the Park for less than an hour.

 :lol: Well the House of Mouse would never set an age limit for their guests. I believe that he likely visited the park because of the WDW connection to the Invictus Games last year and perhaps to remember something of his childhood visit with his family.
