Poet,
I struggle with the same issue. I am always wanting to know how I can "fix" something? What can I "do" about it? etc. My T is very good at redirecting me back to the process. I'm back in a depressive episode right now. It feels a lot like I haven't gotten better at all, but there was a definite trigger for this. I suppose that a year ago, I (and my T) might not have been able to identify that trigger. I don't think I would be bouncing back already.

It still feels really crappy, and last week I whined that I was right back where I started. It feels that way. It feels that bad. But at the same time, it IS different somehow, and I'm more able to handle it.

But I agree with Daisy, overachievers are impatient with themselves! And actually, now that I think about it, my T and I never talk about progress. Hmmmmm. Maybe he doesn't want to reinforce that part of me that is so sensitive to being evaluated???

Take care, and very good to see you on the boards!
