Took a big step for me

I set up an appointment with a therapist who had helped me previously many years ago to get over a 3-4 year depression that meds didn't touch. Technique was EMDR. I suspect I had something similar to PTSD, but am not sure. Didn't have a formal PTSD diganosis. Anyway, my depression totally went away within a couple months of working with her.

So my current therapist suggested after some discussion that I continue the EMDR work for at least a session or two with the past therapist. It's actually something I've had in the back of my head for a long time, because the only reason I stopped in the first place was because our daughter was born and things got a little crazy. So this is exciting for me. Worst case it doesn't help and I waste a little time, but given how much it helped last time, it could be pretty big.

Good for you! Hope it is as helpful as it was last time.

That's wonderful!

EMDR actually worked wonders for me when I was in a really bad spot a few years ago. I hope it's helpful for you. Keep us posted!

Good for you. Tell us how it goes! I'm in traditional therapy and always love to hear about what else is out there.

I confess, I just took some time to look up what EMDR was. It sounds very interesting.

I wish the best for you during this treatment. Please update us on how it s progressing.
