I'm glad you said that because I hope you know that "we" would never sit back and "just" let you walk down a potentially harmful path without questioning why you were choosing it. I would want you to be honest with me as much as I hope to always be honest with you. And supportive. And never run out of lemon-aid.

I know how badly you want to break this open. And I trust that your therapist will walk with you as you find your way -- she has all these (14?) years, hasn't she? I think pseudoname has a very good point about catharsis though. I've written this a bunch of times, but don't we all wish it was the ABC Afterschool Special in which you get the "aha!" moment and then all is well and healed. Your struggles and my struggles and lots of others here show that this just isn't so. BUT, there is something genuinely good that happens when you do finally let some of it out, cry really hard or whisper a deep fear or dark secret. Trust grows when it is accepted and understood.

And I must say, your grace, as always, impresses me. I wanted to leap to your defense (mine too) but there is no need, is there? (((Antigua)))
