I think part of the problem is that therapists are being pulled over to the PPO's way of thinking.

That therapy should be limited to crisis control.

I got the "agreement contract" that Damos sent me, but I'm not sure I'd know how to start re-writing it from one worded for an eating disorder to one for me.

I don't know how to word WHAT I've got... All I know is that I have some horrible reactions to interpersonal situations and am tired of having to "regain my sanity and pick up the pieces" after I freak out and do something stupid. For instance, once I threw away everything I owned. Luckily I had forgotten the laundry basket before I came to my senses, so I had SOMETHING to wear until I could buy all new clothes again. And I'm not wealthy. It set me back for years.

I don't want to be told that I'm doing great just because I've managed not to freak out... I want to figure out WHY and WHEN I get to freak-out stage so I can thwart it. And I told her that.

And she just told me that I'm going in the right direction- that knowing what I have to do is half the battle. But she didn't tell me how we were going to fight the rest of the battle...

I'm not even sure WHAT I should be asking for- and asking for ANYTHING is really difficult for me in the first place.

I need to come up with something concrete to ask FOR before I can do the asking...
