Yes, you really do have to tell him. Tell him what you told me - that you feel that now you are out of danger *AND* that you want to stay that way. But this is one of those times when you need to tell him that you have an emergency and you really do need to see him - particularly before he goes on vacation.

I think that he will recognize that writing all that you did was a big deal, and that it has brought you to a scary place. Hopefully he can help you deal with some of the scariness so that you can be safe.

It is really good that you can recognize that working on a concrete plan is a dangerous thing. Please ask for help if you get in that situation again. Could you call your sister in that event? Or that is when you can make an emergency call to your therapist. Have you talked to your therapist about when emergency calls are appropriate, and how to get in touch with him etc? It would be good to know what the sitation is with him.

It probably would also be wise for you to have a name of a collegue who will be covering for him while he's on vacation. You can come to Camp Comfort - it operates year round, you know.

Best of luck.

Let us know how it goes.
