I had my first session and doing another this Friday. I love it so far. It really is a good way to get thru difficult issues without the emotions taking over

I've been doing EMDR for a few months now. I was Mr "Look-at-me-I overcame-everything-I'm-freaking-superman" until everything that could go wrong just suddenly started going wrong, one after the other, and after a downward spiral of about 2 and a half years, I found myself on the bathroom floor with a paring knife and a huge gash in my forearm.

Turns out I'm not superman after all.

So I called the therapist I used to see in my early twenties and it turned out that she had since become an EMDR specialist. I still have some way to go, but it has already made a huge difference in my life. Its not always easy, but for me it has been worth it several times over.

It's helping me to face things that I've never been willing/able to face before. I've gotten so used to living wounded, that I almost convinced myself that being in constant pain was normal, that is was simply how life is. Since starting EMDR, these wounds have started to heal and I am looking forward to a time when the pain might actually stop completely...

Country and Gecko,

EMDR has been a blessing to me. I did about 10 sessions earlier this year. It was really the first time after years of therapy work where I could actually cry and not numb (diss) out. It "broke through" my defenses...

I'm thinking about doing some more sessions.

Jim
