> Isn't it kind of strange, though, to know that you are being treated for something and you don't know what that something is?

Yes, I felt strage about it too. If you think you can handle listening to your pdoc describe your dx, or if you just really want to know, then you should go ahead and ask. But you might feel labelled afterwards... And you know what that can lead to-self-prophesying, bad/hurt feelings... I just want you to be aware of all the possible outcomes so you are prepared.

>Why shouldn't I be able to "fix" myself?

I used to wonder the same thing! I've come to the conclusion that I can't fix myself because I can't be objective in relation to myself. I need someone else to look at what's going on.

> Maybe I should have a little talk about dependency with my therapist this Saturday?

Good plan. I hope I helped you a little bit...
