Emdr

I haven't posted here in a while and some of you have seen my posts in different forums, I guess I never realized how much my PTSD was hurting me.
I was wondering though, a few months ago my therapist attempted EMDR on me, but I couldnt really follow his instruction, the whole time I couldnt think of the memory and I just keep fearing that whatever I was doing, I was doing it wrong and that I didnt know how much this was really going to help, I dont think it helped at all.

what do you guys think of the whole experience?

Re: Emdr

HI, Ive had EMDR and it helped me - if you are thinking of having it again - then its a good idea to discuss all that you have said wiht your therpsit befor you try - my therapist went to great lengths to say there is no right or wrong way to respond there is only the way you respond - and if you get lost just say so and we'' try somthing else - when the eye movements set off my migraines she did tapping instead - howa reyou going now?

take care
