H.,

Are you undergoing EMDR?

This has been lifesaving (along with tapping. which sounds ridiculous even to me as i type it, and yet…) for me. I have no doubt that the application of this weirdness is almost singlehandedly responsible for my recovery.

I first learned about this after Alex’s lung bleed. I wasn’t sleeping; for 2 years i couldn’t sleep. I had constant flashbacks to his incident, and was constantly paranoid it was going to happen again. i couldn’t think about it without having a panic attack.

then EMDR, and no more panic. it was amazing.

i never thought to have them focus on my daddy issues or my spousal abuse. not until after jeff.

it saved me.

Soraya Bakhbakhi this is true stuff. I really, really beg you to at least give it a chance before making a decision you can’t unmake.

I still don’t know what I want to be when I grow up, but I know I want it to be spelled right and punctuated correctly. I guess that’s something.
