Daisy,

Therapists are quite wise. And especially yours is even wiser. If the therapist feels the patient is being genuine and wants help, and is just admitting their feeling, they will definitely not take offense. Some patients do try to manipulate their therapist with suicidal ideas, but even then, therapists are trained to understand that it is the patients own mental trauma that is beign displayed in that fashion. My first T once said, he really won't worry even if his patients commit suicide and he won't feel guilty if he knows he has done his best. I am sure all therapists are trained to understand that and that ultimately, the patients are responsible for their actions, and therapist are not God.

I am sure your thearpist understands the intense pain that you are in, and wants to help you. He definitely is not going to take offense if you want help. Just like transference, suicidal ideas probably will take lot of time talking about it to make it go away. I am sure your T understands this.

Even we understand it here, so I am sure your T understands it 100 times more. Please feel free to talk about it as much as you want. Talking about it really really helps.
