    I once told my therapist I didn't want any of his happy thoughts shit. I forget who said it, but just because he said you are improving doesn't mean he doesn't hear you. Plus, he can't read your mind. I had suicidal ideations for 4 years, 6 attempts or more, until I realized that suicidal thoughts are only thoughts. They aren't facts.

    If you don't tell him how you are doing, how is he going to know? I improved during those 4 years, however I was still ill, and my T knew I was still ill. If you don't tell your therapist what's going on, he doesn't know.
