I would really encourage you to share it with her...I know it would be hard, but I agree with annierose that you've answered your own question. Yes, it will be hard, but if you can imagine the relief it would bring, try to use that strength to help you.

Would it help to start simply by saying that there's something that is so hard to talk about that it physically hurts to even think about it. I will often preface "big stuff" with words like that...saying that it's really hard to talk about, or embarrassing, or whatever.

One of the things my T says that really helps me is that talking about these horrible things takes away their power and allows us to not carry them around with us anymore and that's important, because they should never have been ours to carry in the first place. You were a child...it wasn't your fault...and you shouldn't have to carry it around anymore...give it over to your therapist to carry instead.
