Thanks for the responses everyone.

I actually do drink alot of water, and there weren't any hints that the other patients dropped that were really insightful, or that I wasn't already aware of.

I'll definitely bring something in writing into the therapist. When I went for the first time last night, I was somewhat tongue tied. The appointment was only to establish the presenting problem though, so no real loss. I don't think it'd be appropriate or wise for him to give me a verbal prompt regarding my odor until he knows more about me. Hopefully he'll be honest. I did get definite signals from him.

And thanks for the input, Dr. Bob. I actually did consider the possibility of that condition a long while ago... I found out about it because it's sometimes associated with another, physical condition that I happen to have.

In the past, it has been my tendancy to focus on my flaws. Although, more recently, the odor thing has kind of overshadowed everything, to the point where the other 'flaws' mean almost nothing to me. The doctor who treated me in the psyche ward tried to convince me that I invented this problem to help deal with criticism (He diagnosed me with avoidant personality disorder. People with APD tend to be super-sensitive to criticism.). It's a clever explanation, but I don't buy it.
