thank you so much madeline for your reply.
i'm not sure how i'm supposed to be dealing with feeling this way, for a while i denied that i was even attracted to him which just sort of made it worse. it seems like a really strange sort of relationship i'm supposed to have with my therapist, like not even really a friendship, but in some ways so much more than that.
at the moment i can't imagine telling him about what i'm feeling. how did you go about it?
i haven't even told my therapist much about my life/feelings in general...i guess i should work on that first. i'm terrified of him figuring out by himself that i'm attracted to him, he has sort of hinted at before...after that i was so embarrassed and avoided any eye-contact with him. but i realise that i probably won't get much out of the sessions if i keep trying to ignore it. my feelings for him seem to bring out this feeling of unworthiness in me and mistrust toward him, which is obviously not very productive.....
