I’m kinda envious of people for whom therapy works. People who show up at self-help groups and find them self-helpful. People who go to hospitals and come out better afterward. People who find that the system works for them.
I guess it’s tough, though, trying to talk to one of those people. They often blame my non-recovery on me, saying, “It worked for me and if it’s not working for you, then you are not trying hard enough.”
I’ve kind of had enough of this line.
Have people said this to you? That because you’re not better, you must be a rotten lousy person?
