I think I understand what he was saying.

>If it is true that our sense of self is a fiction, having a disturbed sense of self might (just sometimes) turn out to be an advantage.

Yes, I was thinking of way to explain my T this, but I can't think of one that she won't (at least privately) dismiss as denial. I've been reading more of "The Universe In a Single Atom" and as usual it helped me feel more at peace.

>I got a diagnosis of lack of a sense of identity (an idea from Erickson?) 35 years ago, and have been disturbed ever since (of course), but I do think the sense of self you have is something you work with and something which changes over time. It's not just given. My father wasn't impressed with this no sense of identity business. He could see I wasn't him.

You might share my cynicsm then that 10 sessions of CBT(!) will endow me with a fully functioning human personality.
