Hi Crook32. You have my empathy. I too was raised by strict Catholics and their strange views on sexuality. I spent my adult years actively reversing most of what I was "taught" with regard to sexuality. And I'm a heterosexual person! It must have been very difficult to be a lesbian who was raised like that since the Catholic Church still bizarrely labels homosexuality a sin etc.

I think your idea about speaking with a therapist is wise. My question is do you feel shame at all because of how your therapist responded when you raised the issue or just because of your background? If any shame was triggered by the therapist's actual response or approach, you need a different therapist! Someone open and experienced in discussing sexual matters as I think Skeezyks already suggested.

Please know that I am not judging you and one way or another I hope you find peace. Take good care of yourself.
