I take an AD, and I've told some clients about it. I usually do it to normalize the concept of taking meds, and also as a way to demonstrate understanding of depression.

But, your reaction is valid, and it speaks to the issue of the risks of self-disclosure. Sometimes even a well-intentioned self-disclosure from a therapist backfires.

And the standards suggestion: talk to her about your reaction. I'm guessing that since she's been open about it, she will be okay with hearing your feelings and concerns about needing her to be the "stronger one". That's a legitimite and common therapy need.

Good luck!
