See, I'm feeling as if I'm so profoundly disturbed that I can't even face up to how sick I really am. You know what I mean, right? "Gee, I think I need to work on getting internal validation of my perceptions, but I guess I'm totally wrong. Maybe I really do need to work through this denial..." Having you restate the picture really helps. You're right -- I can feel in my bones that you're right -- I don't need to know my diagnosis in order to work at getting better.

Pfinstegg's comment, that some doctors are rethinking the whole Axis II thing is also so helpful. It's like gay marriage: the rest of the world is looking towards binding civil union for gay and straight, and we're here arguing for gay marriage. That's all or nothing thinking, which is one of those traits that's associated with borderline, right? Maybe taking a deep breath and looking with more neutral eyes would help with both issues? I agree that the whole Axis II is probably better understood as an artifact of experience, which also makes it a lot easier to treat, right?

Thank you both. I really needed that.
