I understand the frustration that comes from feeling like you're having trouble making yourself understood. It's a difficult medium sometimes.

I'm sorry if what I posted hurt you in any way. I'm very much in rational mode today, and may not have responded to the emotional content very well.

FWIW the phrase "grown up" means so much more to me than it would say in the dictionary. It is layered with meanings that I understand but can't explain. And that my therapist grasps in large part, but not completely. Maybe the term "favorite" has personal meaning to you that neither I nor your pdoc understood in the way you meant it? It's perfectly understandable. We grow up with words being used in context so that, for example, "profligate" may be defined as "wildly extravagant", but in useage it has shadings of meaning such that you might use one in some circumstances and another in another circumstance. I think words can come to have those same shadings or layers of meaning from personal context. Which it sounds as if you already realize of course. So forgive me if I restate the obvious.
