> What's a "self" issue?

A "self" issue means that you don't have a clearly defined self or a self that works well. In my case, I have redefined an important part of my self in the last 5 years. Currently I am trying to straighten out how I determine my self worth. I would determine my own basic selfworth. But I had given my therapist the "power" to negatively affect my self worth when she was angry at me (but she couldn't affect it positively). So every time I THOUGHT she was angry (which was probably a lot more than she really was), I would be sure that I was totally worthless - evil. This is not a good system. So I'm trying to fix that now.

Well, your summer sounds... exciting. I am impressed. I couldn't drive 450 miles. Do you have to drive back across the country? With how many kids? I can't concentrate very long so I fall asleep after about 45 minutes.

How did you find this? Is it a fancy house? Do they have a computer?

You were awfully nice to take care of your dad. I'm sure he appreciated having you around. That took courage.

Sounds like you don't feel too well. I'm sorry. It isn't fun to go through the days like that. Did you get *any* relief from your earlier therapy? I get from your posts that you are a bit cynical about therapy. I believe in therapy, but I've just changed therapists because I wasn't happy with my original therapist. So ask me in 6 months.

In my late 30s I had too much responsibility at work and too much responsibility at home and I crashed. I guess I had kept the bowing wall up with spackle, but eventually the bow was too much and the wall came tumbling down. It is awfully hard to get all of those little pieces back together into a wall.
