Julie (er, Dr Bernt) is really trying to drill down to the issue at hand here. She will use any metaphor she can. And sometimes in therapy, said metaphors can fail to reach their target, or, work to build a greater semblance of identity.

Also, I am in a pretty brutal depression right now and I can't shake this incredibly core-deep chill, so my hands don't actually do what they should. People's faced in this chapter are going to be even more imperfect than usual.

I know the exact feelings Annie is going through (I'm still going through them right now).
As for your so-called imperfections, never let the audience know. It is something that I learned in theatre, you never let the audience know where the mistake was made - they have no way of knowing how it was 'supposed to' look. Wow, just typing that gave me goosebumps as it seems to have morphed into a TG metaphor for this chapter and me.....

@JennaD: After I came out and watched how it destroyed my fiance that I had been lying my entire life, I decided to take the path of truth. I just can't lie any more, it brings too much hurt to others, let alone to myself.
Plus, if I come out and say I am struggling with depression, then others who struggle will know they are not alone. Then they can help others. And so forth. Until 1/5 of all people in North America finally have doctors who can pay them the proper care they need to fix it instead of spending each night wondering why they are bleeding so badly and how they got there.
