Why does my doctor say nothing and just watch me? Also, my therapist does the same? They just say nothing for a few minutes and watch me?

    Most likely, there is some assessment going on.

    Are you well nourished? A healthy weight? Clean? Well groomed? Over-groomed? (false eyelashes and bright red lipstick at 10AM)

    Are your movements natural? Is there any abnormal or involuntary movement? Delayed responses to things going on around you? 

    Are your expressions and your affect appropriate? Are you engaged with your surroundings? Or do you appear to be preoccupied and responding to internal stimuli?

    Will you initiate interaction, or refrain from speaking until spoken to?

    That's actually not a bad thing because they're carefully considering your situation & assessing the best course of treatment for you, rather than just impulsively saying the first thing that comes to their minds.

    You need to ask them why they do it.

    It's what you do with crazy people.
