My purpose in briefly describing our relationships is to preface my question:
Have you ever asked your therapist if she/he has suffered from an eating disorder?
If yes, how did you go about this, & what was their response. How did their response affect you & your relationship.
If no, why not? Do you wish you could? What stops you?
I am curious to know whether my therapist has had an eating disorder (or experienced abuse, for that matter), but I'm acutely away of therapeutic boundaries that I don't want to cross. I just find it so hard to fathom how well she understands me, if she has never had first hand experience. I can't put my finger on what stops me asking her.
I could write for hours. I'll stop now.
Thanks in advance everyone.
