> I'm half-way convinced she's are going to dump me if I don't quit cutting. (I've decided to quit telling her about the cutting). It would be SO nice to be that honest with her. I think MAYBE I might be able to do that at my next session.

Elle, that makes me feel sad. I would hate not feeling like I can tell my therapist *anything*. Can you make telling her that you're worried about this a priority before you stop letting her know when you self injure? My therapist asked me once, hypothetically, what I would do if he made an ultimatum about my cutting, and I answered that I would hypothetically lie through my teeth and not feel a bit of guilt about it. He said he figured I'd say that and that was why he didn't make that ultimatum. He preferred that I be honest with him. Maybe your therapist feels the same way, and it would be sad to be hiding something from her if it isn't necessary.
