Is it possible some people can never cope?

I had this discussion with my therapist today. I described to him how I had been to years of therapy and read just about every psychological self help book ever written and that I still did not have any better "coping" skills than I began with. The same issues in life STILL overwhelm me, the same dysfunctional family members are STILL able to get under my skin, and I have tried every "mental" trick in the book to work past these issues to no avail. I told him I need the meds to feel "numb", honestly, it's the only way I can cope and that I can allow things to roll off my shoulders that would normally pull me down. He says that is common and that to some point I will always have to be on some sort of med to be able to cope, seeing as my lack of coping skills are biological in nature. It sure is a depressing thought. Shouldn't they just tell you at the therapists door "sorry, there is nothing I can do for you, find the right meds, LOL!" Just kidding, but it is true to a point huh? I always feel that no matter how hard I try in life I am always going in circles and coming back to square one. Feels like I never make any progress. Soooooooo frustrating!
