One word of caution however is that it does depend on how damaged you are as to whether to try it, as it can trigger lots of other stuff off which may be better left alone.
Is there anything specific you want to know about the experience of it?
I think u answered it. I was afraid that it would bring issues back that don't need to be brought back, but what if this is good, i mean what if these other issues are buried in my sub-conscious and they do need to be brought out by emdr, wouldn't it help my future?
