Default Re: really weird fantasy about my therapist

I can understand that. I used to think that I had to be completely open and honest for therapy to work, but now I think that there's something in deciding for ourselves what we disclose and what we hold back. I think it has a lot to do with defining our own personal boundaries and taking care of ourselves. I'm sure both of our therapists would be fine whatever we said but perhaps it's important for us to weigh up the pros and cons of what, when and how we disclose. I've been thinking about this a lot, mainly because there are certain things that feel too shameful for me to discuss in detail. It's an evolving relationship and I believe that details will be disclosed when we are ready and that's ok.

So what you suggested sounds fine... the breastfeeding is about being mothered and nurtured after all. Good luck, let us know how it goes.
