Have to see psychologist, terrified - can I give him a list of what happened to me I don't want to tell him, then we can talk about it or is this dumb?

Have to see psychologist, terrified - can I give him a list of what happened to me I don't want to tell him, then we can talk about it or is this dumb?

YES! This is A-OK!: A skilled psychologist will pick up on the fact that you are terrified, though it would be helpful if you shared this. (I'd want to know!) What's more, a skilled psychologist will let you take control of the situation if they understand that you have experienced a situation where control was taken from you. If you would feel more comfortable by sharing this in writing, there is no problem! ...Read more
