I know that feeling all too well and still fight it all the time. I now see primarily a social worker who specializes in DBT. She tells me over and over again that I must give myself this care and love. That no adult can expect the unconditional love we are supposed to get as children from other adults. My p-doc, with whom I did therapy for 7 years (I still see him for meds), said basically the same thing over and over. You have to give yourself love and compassion. I had wanted in so desperately from him. I was sick with grief over this.

I still fight and fight this. Sometimes, I feel ready to give up. But so far, I have found enough good things and distractions to keep myself going.

Good luck to you. Hopefully, this therapist will help. I think, on the whole, it is better to talk it out and try to learn to cope than it is to repress it and deny it by yourself. If you try to repress it, it just rises up at some point and you find you have no coping skills to handle the pain.
