> My regret in telling her sensitive stuff is that there are some things you tell therapists that get a very negative reaction, and I suppose it's better not to tell those things until they know you well and realize you aren't going to be a management problem to them, or a faker, or something like that. I told too early this time. Big mistake. She didn't say she wouldn't work with me or anything, but the tone in the room changed.

Ah, I see what you mean… I suppose that makes most sense if you’re certain that waiting till they’ve got to know you will ensure they take it better. (Sorry for the poorly-structured sentences. I’m struggling a bit today.) What I means is: if you share this stuff early on in the relationship (like first month or so) you might be able to weed out the people who can’t deal appropriately with it. Unless it’s the sort of thing that all therapists can handle appropriately as long as they know you well enough…

> It's a shame that there are psychological issues that are taboo to talk about with therapists. :(

Absolutely. And I’m sorry she shamed you too :(
*Bad* therapist…

I hope you find someone soon.
