Bulls eye! I found this very helpful to read.

After they've tried everything in their bag of tricks, and you're still not improving, they go to "you must just want to be sick because you're getting secondary gains from it". I guess they think you might have a lightbulb moment and think "oh yeah, I do like all the rewards of being sick" and be able to just stop doing it.
