tranference or real feelings?

Posted by wishingstar on March 10, 2006, at 21:24:39

How do you know if something is "just transference" or real?

I told my T on tuesday that I was feeling like hurting myself in order to get her attention becase I dont feel like shes hearing me at all. Whenever I mention feeling unsafe or other serious things, its like she barely hears it, and never asks later if I'm okay. I have a history of suicide attemps and SI so I just wish she'd ask..

But when I finally told her I wasnt feeling heard (in a note) and we talked about it, she immediately labeled it as transference. My family completely ignored me growing up, especially with emotional issues, so this makes sense.. but I'm feeling lost. I truly feel like she isnt hearing me, and its really hurting.. but maybe shes right, and it is just a transference reaction.

How do you know whats real and what isnt?
