Hmm I don’t think I’d consider that reassurance. Hope is what will keep you doing the hard work of ERP!
Well that’s at least something. Start with a new therapist tomorrow so we will see…
I hate to say it but if you have to ask if something is reassurance, generally it is. The close you can come to unconditional acceptance and living with uncertainty the sooner you’ll recover. That being said I will let you know that there is no such thing as treatment resistent and everyone, with work, is capable of fully recovering
In tough moments I just remember that "This too shall pass." There have probably been moments like this before. Regardless of the severity though, you will always make it through.
