Thanks for the support. What you both say makes perfect sense.

I never thought about my adult self hating the younger helpless child, Daisy, so maybe I'm just using another "me" to express the anger. I had envisioned that the adult me would help the little me come to terms with what had happened. I just didn't realize there was this very angry person I needed to deal w/too. But it makes perfect sense. Without it, where would my anger have gone? I've kept it so bottled up and now I've been presented with a "real" image of it--and it is a totally separate part of me at the moment.

Aphrodite, I've always hated myself instead of the other person. I'm still not angry at my father, not really, because if I am than I have to face it and what it did to me. It's so much easier to take it out on ourselves--actually, maybe it's safer.

See, I can intellectualize to death and still not get anywhere. Hope my T has some answers for me tomorrow. Sorry, I'm not very articulate tonight.
Thanks again,
