Thank you so much for everyone's thoughts so far. They are soooo appreciated. I really have been quite distressed about this, more than I care to admit! First, I am relieved to hear that others have googled their T. My T made me feel crazy for doing it, and when I told her that I spoke to several of my friends about it & they admitted that they have (or would) do the exact same thing, she "doubted that was true". Ugh. My T is in her early to mid 30's (just a few years older than me), so I really don't understand why she seems so naive/out of touch w/ the internet era! I feel so misunderstood & even vilified (by her bringing up words such as "aggressive" and "stalking") for something that I really don't think is so uncommon or odd. In fact, I think it was brave of me to tell her... I would guess that I'm not her only client who has read the blog, although clearly I am the only one who's brought it to her attention. I certainly recognize why she is distressed, but agree with those of you who have said that this is her problem to deal with. I honestly feel so bad to have made her feel so vulnerable and uncomfortable. Oh, and btw, yes... since I told her this information, her family has switched to a password protected blog! While I agree that it's not necessary or appropriate for us to discuss the contents of her blog, I have had reactions that I feel may need to be processed. For example, I now have an impression of her family as "perfect" and it makes me feel inhibited disclosing things about my own family that are "less than perfect". Stuff like that.
