I wish I could say that I am working with a therapist right now, but I am currently unemployed and required to make the very most of what I've got, i.e., reasonably good health and a lot of smarts and work ethic. I am a consummate survivor, which has its pros and cons.
So the biggest obstacle is that I can't afford it right now. I figure it can't hurt to keep looking for a suitable therapist while I address the urgent need to find work.
I've gotten this far in life through sheer determination (age 56) so I trust that my life someday will lead to a beneficial outcome.
Most of all, this is a message of deep gratitude for Belleruth's profound gifts of insight about human nature as well as science. I feel that she sees me even though we've never met.
