I might be getting this wrong, but is it like 'if I could only find the right question and get the right answer then things will be OK?' (Or if I can read the right book, get the right dx...?) But sometimes I wonder whether the words exist, and that things happen inside, and during therapy, that our language just doesn't have the words and ideas to describe. Also wonder whether the struggling itself works in a way that that we don't understand. So that there's a result from your and your therapist's frustrating efforts even if it doesn't feel like it.

I used to sometimes think I was like a vampire.
It might have been Jung (not exactly my greatest idol, but he had some good ideas), who said that our problems are rarely 'solved', but we manage to grow out of them eventually.

Hope this waffling on is of some use.

Take care of yourself this weekend.
