I care about you, I was at Easter hell brunch with my family and I suspect others may be doing the holiday thing which is why babble is slow right now.
Maybe when you interview your next T, you say upfront I have been told that I am too self destructive to treat. I don't believe I am beyond help, I want help, are you the the kind of therapist who can work with someone who may not always be easy to work with?
My T told me that I am not easy to work with with and that in the beginning she wasn't sure she would be able to. She's stuck it out for over five years. I try her patience, I still have trust issues, but as she got to know me she realized why I have major trust issues and fear dependence.
I don't think you should give up. You want help and you deserve a therapist who can work with you and accept you for who you are.
