OK, back to the insight question.
Insight? Baby, you obviously got it.
For some reason you are pushing the pdoc's buttons and he's not listening to you. He's gotta listen to you to be helpful.
As for the super-cognitive therapist you got there--she seems a tad rigid, I'll say! What if you asked her to strike a bargain with you---she lets you emote for 1/2 the session and then for the 2nd 1/2 you'll agree to talk about these rational thinking strategies she wants you to talk about.
Another idea--is there a chapter of NAMI near you? Maybe they can lead you to some sort of MH advocate to help you deal with this system you're stuck in.
