> You know falls, this is what I think. It is your life, and you can do whatever you want to do about it. Your T can't tell you what to do.

He isn't telling me what I can do. He is telling me what he thinks is helpful to me. He is well aware that it is my decision what I do.

But maybe the only thing that I would change is discussing it with him. You know how he feels about it. Maybe he is feeling a little exposed or threatened about you talking about yourself and his therapy in a public form.

I am SURE that NOT telling him about it is the wrong thing for me to do. Hiding things from him makes his job impossible - and that means that he can't help me. If I want him to help me then I have to be as honest as I can with him - whether he likes it or not.

I could be wrong though. I would just do what makes you feel good, and let him deal with his own problems! LOL

But what makes me feel good (i.e. what I have done in the past) hasn't worked in my favor. If it had, I wouldn't be here on Babble today. If my first instincts led me down the best path, I wouldn't need a therapist at all. I HAVE to try things that are outside of my comfort zone if anything in my life is going to be different.

I miss your posts, by the way. :)

Thanks, Happyflower.
