Default polys in recovery?

I'm sure there has to be other members of a 12 step program out there, right? I belong to one and have been sober for almost 19 years. Since sobriety/solvency/abstinence from addiction takes a spiritual component for success, I figured this fit into the spirituality area, or maybe life stories? I'm sorry if I put this in the wrong place.

Anyway, I've come out to the sponsor I've had for four years and while she hasn't said anything about it, she hasn't necessarily been affirming either. When I watch her face, I feel like I see her doing the mental arithmetic and watch her furrow her brow. Maybe I'm just too sensitive about it because it is all still so new. I just don't want to be in a situation where I don't feel like I can talk to her about that part of my life.

My question is: have any of you had this situation? What did you do? Did you need to re-evaluate whether the sponsorship relationship was worth maintaining? Is there any such thing as a poly affirming sponsor? Surely there has to be.
