> I think this may not be the time for improvements tho. I think I need all my capital for maintenance.

Hmm... But sometimes it can feel fairly depressing to think that all there is to do is to 'cope' or 'get by' without prospects for genuine improvement. I would imagine that... She is trying to give you some hope of that. Some hope for genuine improvement.

Is it that...

You want to be in therapy long term and thus the prospects of 'getting better' seem to imply termination and so... You resist the idea that you might be able to improve?

I get that sometimes... Yup.

> Still, no real way of telling her that. I think I'll just stick to sex. She seems to be trying so hard to stick to short term focussed stuff anyway. No need to open any cans of worms.

Yeah... I guess.
