Thank you. Your post gave me so much validation -- nearly everything you said is what I *think* I see, but have that history of being told I don't really see it. (Did that even make sense? I suspect it does, but it sounds weird...)

Yes -- going there would give me intensive therapy in a safe and structured environment. I am not happy about the eating/weight gain, but I have been clear about that to the intake people, and if it becomes a huge battle about eating, so be it -- as long as I can get the daily therapy and try to get past the huge wall I have built up against facing my emotions. That's the real problem, anyway -- not my weight. (Right now, yes, my weight is under the DSM criteria. That does not mean I'm in danger -- only that I'm under an arbitrary line, you know?) I'm afraid of a lot of things, including my insurance dumping me out before I get what I need most. My insurance, though, is said to be good about that.

Thank you so much for the validation, and for caring. And, of course, for the nice things you've said. Right now, I've been having days of feeling attractive, even beautiful, so I liked hearing that.

And anyway -- you've "known" me here long enough to know that it appealed greatly to my sense of humor!
