the VA Mental Health Trauma-recovery supervisor who pushed me into the 7 month off-campus wait for nothing.

No one on the list of scheduled VA staff in that meeting has ever spent even an hour talking to me in a therapeutic setting. The line up looks a lot like the big brush-off.

2. best of luck. i thought of you yesterday on the train.
one thing about public transit in chicago is that you get to stay up to date on all the latest clinical trials, as lots of them post appeals for participants in ads that are everywhere. apparently the university of chicago medical school has a trial going for a drug for bpd. unfortunately the top age is 40, which, iirc, you are over. still and all, at least someone is working on something. maybe you can find out more.

i hope all goes well. hope everyone has your best interests at the center of this, and not their own.

3. From APA Ethics manual...General Principles...
"Principal A:...psychologists...are alert to and guard against personal, financial, social, ORGANIZATIONAL , or political factors that might lead to misuse of their influence."

I'm meeting with Co-directors of Outpatient Mental Health and the supervisor of the therapist that quit on me in the middle of my summer crises.

I cannot help but believe the meeting is all about ORGANIZATIONAL issues and will indeed challenge this General Principle of APA ethics.

If there is good news, my "Righteous-Self Defender" sub-persona is highly agitated and that role has access to the remaining cognitive abilities and my education including an very advanced academic vocabulary. On the other hand that role is demanding and harsh, doesn't recognize authority, and is like an ever sharp ceramic blade in the hands of a Sushi chef...fully capable and often quite willing to verbally slice and dice the rhetorical presentments of any other professional.

At any rate, I'm bringing a copy of the APA's Ethical Principles of Psychologists and Code of Conduct (2010) along with me, as well as photocopies of relevant sections of Wis Statutes and HSS and HFS Administrative Codes. At the beginning I'm going to ask them whether this meeting will conducted in the spirit of relevant laws and regulations protecting a mentally ill client's rights, and their own profession's code.

I'm sure that will be seen as overtly confrontational, but then as experts, they should know the nature of my personality disorder. They've had opportunity to read my medical record and thereby be to be forewarned.

5. hmmmm. i am thinking that the beginning of your post
might be better to bring up in the beginning of the meeting than the part that starts- at any rate. you have a lot of self awareness and i think that is useful for them to know.
