I recognize that I have only been in this lifestyle for a year or so. But I have been amazed at how much D/s is permeating through every aspect of my life.
Which leads me to a conundrum…Do I tell my counselor about BDSM?
I was seeing a counselor before we moved last year. Sir and I talked about telling her. We decided it was best if she knew. Sir compared it to going to a medical doctor. When you go to the doctor because your knee hurts they still ask you if you smoke or drink. It probably isn’t relevant to your knee pain, but you need to let the doctor decide what’s important. They need to see the whole you to figure out what is really wrong.
I really don’t think that being a submissive has anything to do with my depression. I was depressed before D/s and, if anything, it has helped me to stay on a more even keel. This most recent slump has just been about vanilla stress.
I guess I’m just mulling over the decision again. I don’t think I will be judged or anything (though I didn’t specify a kink-friendly counselor). I’m just always a little wary of telling people. I mean, I have one vanilla friend who knows the basics, but that’s it. And this woman is going to know a lot about me and my issues.
Curious to know what other’s think. I don’t mean to pry if you don’t want to share, but even just a general opinion about telling a professional like this would be appreciated.
