Well, as one who has studied faith a good bit (albeit religious faith), I think grappling with faith is part of having it. It's my philosophy that having doubts about anything is good rather than bad, because if your faith ends up renewed it's renewed with a freshness it wouldn't have if you never ever doubted.

So perhaps my view of therapy right now is colored by my slide into depression. Or perhaps I'm just working through the idealizing transference and realizing that my therapist can't offer me much that I can't offer myself now that I've internalized him. I don't know yet how it will work out.

But I wish I could have that simple faith back. Not that I didn't have doubts, I certainly did. But I had no doubt that I felt bad, then I saw him, then I felt better. Magic. I want that magic back. :((
