...all of whom condemn the idea.
Hmmm. Not much point in having wide practical experience available, then ignoring it, is there?
Psychiatrist told me that while my situation sucked (she used longer, politer words), I was managing it very well.
It seems an unusual thing to be grateful for, but when your situation does indeed suck, anything truly positive is most welcome.
This particular lady is very deeply insightful, so it was interesting to see her being fairly reticent about what she did say.
Must also admit that the long stream of people being entirely honest with me (a few of them painfully so, but nevertheless as honest as they know how to be) is highly refreshing.
