I tell my therapist when I'm "researching." He ususally wants to know why and has even gone as far as to ask what words I'm using to google. It gives him insight into what I'm worried about. He has referred to me as an "information hound." I just need to have a lot of information about things.

He has recommended a few books and we talk theory on and off. Especially developmental theory and stages. He finds it fascinating that I don't find survivor books all that helpful. He still asks me to read them sometimes, to normalize things for me a bit.

I often think that if I died suddenly and my mother, or anyone else, looked at my book collection, they would be shocked. Such a wide array of stuff, from Jung to the therapy is bad for you books. Yes, I'm conflicted. I like case stories, but lately I'm into brain research. A friend gave me "The Body Remembers" and it is fascinating!
