Me: I have no idea what it is, but something is bothering me.
My brain: Well, since you suck in so many areas of your life, that's not a surprise.
Me: I've worked damn hard over the last 3 years to work with you, brain. We've been a team. We've begun to be more optimistic and move on from depression. We're identifying areas of our life, moving on from the victimization thing and identifying where we have power to change things we don't like.
My brain: Yeah? Well then how come you're still in a place where you're struggling? You're 33 and haven't maintained anything you need to survive. You depend on others ALL the time.
Me: I don't know. You must be right...
