Let $H$ be a real Hilbert space, and let $T$ be a bounded self-adjoint operator of $H$ to itself. Let $T^+$ denote the pseudo-inverse operator of $T$, that is the operator defined to be zero on $(TH)^{\perp}$ and the inverse of $T$ on $TH$.

Suppose now that for all increasing sequences $H_1\subset H_2\subset \dots$ of finite dimensional subspaces of $H$ we have $\|(T|_{H_i})^+\|\to \infty$ as $i\to \infty$. Is this enough to conclude that $T^+$ is unbounded?
