Lar,

Thanx for being patient. I heated up a portion of the site and Dr. Bob does what it takes to cool things off. I'm not dodging the issues you thoughtfully addressed. I'm just dropping a quick line for now and will take them one at a time later this week. Hope you will be patient with me.

I'm not very concerned about the bootstrapping accusations like it may have sounded that I was. I was mostly confused about how I could say "X" and it was interpretted and evaluated as "Y" and "bad". I was trying toooo hard when Dr. Bob needed to cool things down. I realize that my frenetic postings seeking acceptance and understanding were no darn good for anyone.

To clear up one point: I have no interest in promoting a scheme involving "pulling one's self together by their bootstraps". Is that final enough??? I was accused of that and I overreacted to the accusation. What a mess that all caused!

Lar, I am not replacing any therapy for anyone at anytime. Because of the sharing here at Babble, I have a much better and clearer sense of who can use therapy and when. I admit, in 20-20 hindsight, I was confused on that issue. I am pleased to say That I am better grounded now. Thankfully, I won't attempt to coach folks who clearly can better benefit from good therapy. I might have bit off more than I could chew before. What I will do is encourage them to pay close attention to their therapy process, get some wellness, and let me help them from that point, if they choose.

Believe me, please. I see myself in many posts from various Babblers, only 20 to 25 years ago. I was a mess! Today, here I am! Take from whatever I have become. Once you've gone on the path to wellness, you can then coach others. I do.

Hope we are OK for now...

Rod
