Imitation is a high form of flattery (with caveats).

All of us are here and there learning self-therapy selectively from our therapists, imitating them all over this board. The more we develop our self-therapy strength the stronger our control of ourselves. Next comes self-therapy reflex speed. Just like growth-spurting teenagers have trouble keeping their coordination matched to their size and strength changes, we can expect once quick-enough reflexes to lag or abuse newer strengths. Practice makes perfect, so here we train and retrain until we get it right at no expense to those less forgiving. As you may have noticed, I take no offense to my person, but I don't drop my facts fast on low-balance-weight evidence, either. I do say why-why-why in a whyning (why type whining) way. I have credibility earned elsewhere I guess it will be difficult to earn here.

I am way past the giving up stage and determined to continue the climb back up. Gently tenacious to that goal I will stay. No deadlines means not dead before the line again. Boy am I drifting, I'm going to be asleep again in a few minutes.

If you can see in what you wrote what your therapist would have seen, then you are indeed on the way up. Congratulations. Don't abandon yours, and I won't abandon mine until they set us free.

I refused to be harmed and therefore need no apology for harm not done by you. However, I may owe you some apology, consider it offered, not skillfully, but offered anyway.


> > Yes I was blunt and perhaps a bit rude and I was very tired and fed up with what I considered a lot of crap and still do. However on re-reading some of this stuff I think Jamies approach was perhaps a bit more compassionate, while questioning, which mine might have been if I was less tired and off, courtesy of ADs. So perhaps the next time I will sleep on it...

I must say that I find threads of lucidity and consistency in his comments, but they are well buried amongst a lot of babble, which I do feel some empathy for as well. People including myself have questioned whether it's mania, which it may be, and it may be schizophrenic ramblings too...who knows...hopefully he can work it out with someone who has more patience than I, at this time...
