I'd tell her how you feel. This issue was discussed in the book "Trauma and Recovery", how some ppl expect our T's to be heros and rescue us, and when we find that they're not perfect, and our image is tarnished, it evokes strong, and sometimes angry, feelings in us. It's normal, but maybe she shouldn't be disclosing such personal information. Maybe she thought by telling you, you'd feel closer? I think I'd be the type of person to gain from a disclosure like this, it would make me feel less "defective", but I can see where the other reaction is more common.
