SusanB - That is so right. And in spite of the setbacks, I honestly think that as long as we use this knowledge to better our situation, it's all a positive experience in the end. (Yes, now I know that if I slip into relapse, I'd better not hide from this place nor from the blogs, because it really doesn't help me 'coming out of the closet' and DOING something about it real quick.
That, I have learnt!)
I wish I had this book with me now, to also reread some bits. Alas, it's buried in a cardboard box at my parents' from my January move. *sigh*
