I kept this secret to myself, never telling anyone else, or believing it could change.
Researching my fears on the net, I finally found a name for it -
perfectionism. I didn't know there were two types - external (everything must look perfect) and internal (everything I do must be perfect - I can never be caught making a mistake). I have the internal type.
I then found this book by Ann W. Smith, who I knew of and respected for her work at Caron in PA. As soon as it arrived, I began reading it, and finished it the first day. Every page spoke the truth of my life, and gave me hope for a an end to the suffering.
Last night I discussed my "AHA!" moment with a support group, and was amazed at the percentage of folks who could relate. We were excited to find each other, and relieved to hear that we were not alone.
Right now I'm riding on a pink cloud of HOPE. For the first time, I truly believe things can change.
Ann gives a step-by-step approach to recovery, with descriptions of the time and effort it will take.
A great, life-changing book!
