I'm seeing a therapist to help me resolve some phobia issues I have surrounding health issues that are keeping me from doing some of the things that I love. Today was my first appointment, and the therapist said that she believes my anxiety and phobia issues started because of some trauma I suffered when my parents were fighting really badly one time. That is when all of this started.
I talk to my mother all the time and we are pretty close. I don't know how to NOT tell her I'm seeing a therapist, and I don't know how to avoid hurting her feelings. If I tell her what the therapist thinks then she will blame herself. I don't want her to be hurt.
Do I keep this from her? Do I tell her? How do I handle this?
