substance abuse (take your pick of the substance)
and eating disorders.
I do know what you mean though. maximum effort for minimal progress I read somewhere...
One of my therapists used to smile at me and say 'you aren't THAT bad'. Thats probably the nicest thing anybody has ever said to me. It hurts. Thats all. It hurts so d*mn*d much. All I need is a bit of support sometimes. I don't threaten. I don't say 'come get me or else'. I just need someone to validate me for a bit. But they can't even do that. They just say 'what do you expect us to do?' and I figure that validation isn't something that you can ask for it has to be freely given to be meaningful.. It hurts me that I can see that that is what I need - but I still need it anyway.
I am rambelling rather... I shall go and have another drink now (hic).
