OK, sorry, I got the impression that you didn't like your T's strategy of not letting you talk about the SI. Sounds like you are agreeing that talking about it wouldn't be helpful to you, so I was wrong. Maybe that was me projecting.

Can I point out, though, that if your T's idea is that you are doing it to seek attention (which, by the way, is what I always dread people would think about my SI, and it would freak me out if my T thought that - but that's me), it sounds like she's maybe off base a little there. You did say that you are doing it more and more seriously now, and you aren't getting any attention for that in therapy, right? Because you can't even talk about it. Plus, you said you keep the secret very well, so I assume you aren't getting attention from anyone else about this either. So, then how could it be an attention getting thing? Maybe I'm still not getting it. Sorry.

The other thing that is still niggle at me about this is that your SI is obviously a big deal to you, and a concern. Just based on the fact that you've brought it up here on babble. So, I'm always a little confused when a T wouldn't want someone to talk about something that's a big deal in their life. I don't mean to be slamming your T. Maybe it's just a theoretical orientation that I'm not familiar with. You don't have to explain if you don't want to. I just wanted to share with you that it's confusing to me when I look at it on the surface anyway. And please feel free to do whatever you want with my opinion. I just mean to offer you another point of view, in case that's valuable to you.
