dinah, thanks for your input by the way.

one of the main issues i struggle with in life and in therapy is not being able to follow through with decisions that will benefit me.

for example, exercise and diet are immensely helpful. however, i continue to not exercise and eat pizza and bagels and subs. i cannot follow through on a decision. i will eat well half a day and exercise one day..and feel great, but the next day, i go back to old habits.

this has not improved a lick since i entered therapy. so this is the part that i dont get.

am i supposed to keep going to my T and hope that this changes? she tells me that if i focus only on the behavior, i wont be able to address the underlying cause and the change wont stick. is that true? some people in the field say its nonsense...they say you can change a behavior without understanding why a behavior occurs.

this is part of my gripe with personality disorder stuff and the treatment that im getting from what appears to be a great therapist. maybe its not that i need to treat my personality disorder. what i need to treat are the behaviors that cause me to feel worse.

i dont know. im just sharing my thoughts.
