I think it's a perfectly natural fear. When you disclose something important, it's natural to worry about how it's been received.

But I don't think you need to worry. Therapists don't worry about who has it bad enough to "deserve" to be unwell. I didn't have any significant trauma in my life at all, and my therapist is always telling me that a stressful home life coupled with a sensitive disposition is enough cause.

I won't tell you not to worry, because until you really take in how your disclosure was received you probably will worry. But don't worry too much. If you trusted your therapist enough to tell her, I trust your instincts enough to think it won't be received badly.
