12. She may have just made a general observation
... on what was said to her and her impressions of what your hubby said (if anything) when you were present. Especially if you are dealing with self-worth issues.

That said.... she should have never never ever ever spoken with him without you being present. Never.

My spouse has pushed the panic button a few times and called my therapist. My therapist has always made it clear to her that she can't discuss anything I've said to her. However, she has met my spouse a few times. That, and the panic phone calls, has led her to paint a picture of my spouse for me. She has expressed her general observation of my spouse so I can better understand a few things AND she uses it when we discuss the moral aspects of suicide. One example; I asked her once "what is wrong with suicide?". She brought up my spouse (along with a few other things)... what it would do to her, etc etc.

Ignore the comments made in #8. I'm amazed how people that are totally unaware of all the information (as I am) can make such an insensitive conclusion.

My comments are just a guess. Nothing more. I'm sorry you had this crap laid on you. It does little to further the healing process.
