No, I think I'm expressing it badly. Maybe I should say that this is one of the issues that we're working on together? Truly, I like my T, I think I'd doing well with her, and I'm satisfied that what she is working towards really is in my best interest. And on this matter? I know that this is a problem for me, it's not just part of who I am -- it's a damaging part of who I am. It's just that it is so much a part of me that, maladaptive as it is, it's frightening to me to think about giving it up.
Dunno -- maybe you still won't believe me. Guess I gotta work on getting over wanting to convince you, since I know it's true for me...
