> Hello Dinah:

Never to my recollection. :)
> But you are exactly right here. Therapy is such an inexact science (an art, actually) that no one person can say what is appropriate for another.
I fail in that sometimes myself. Sometimes it's hard not to say "Your therapist said what??!!!" But I do try.
> And I certainly see what you are saying about disclosure. Discussing your own personal therapy is as scary as revealing a sexual problem. It takes great strength to do that, and for that strength I thank you.
Strength or foolhardiness, I'm not sure. I think I'm getting a bit more discreet with age. I'm not sure.
