You should tell your therapist how you are feeling at your next appointment unless it gets too hard and you must call her. I feel it is important you let her know you are going through this internal struggle right now so she realizes where you really are at. Therapists can encourage, and perhaps the most she could say is that you are doing well in your therapy and did not want to make herself more a part of the picture in your progress. Therapists are scared and human too, and I can only imagine perhaps something was going on in her life that day that made her seem off. Perhaps she was more off than usual, and you unfortunately got the bad end of it. What I suggest that you do is that you write out these feelings on here, and in another format in a journal so when you see her, you can show her what you have been going through. That is to the extent that you feel comfortable sharing it. All of us are entitled to privacy, but perhaps opening up enough would help her to realize where you really are at and to tailor your therapy in that direction. Besides, it should be a client centered approach. You have the right to getting the help you need. I think it is very healthy for each one of us to be honest, and you have written your thoughts and feelings out really really well.
Personally, I think a lot of therapists would be proud to see their client be able to write out everything and be in touch with their feelings this well. This will help you I think in the long run.
Peace and Happy Sunday
