OK, I Think EMDR Is Real

I had a total ass-kicking therapy sesh today with EMDR.  On a scale of 1 to 10, this was an 11.  I mean, I should have paid double!  I was crying and snot was coming out and everything!  YAY for EMDR and the way it just flings you right down into the shit you want to delve into!!!  This is all positive to me.  Man, when I go to therapy, I wanna do me some Therapé!  Today was one of those days.  I’m not gonna tell you what my therapy was about, because even I have some boundaries, but suffice to say, I’ve been therapized.  Ah yeah.  Yeah.  YEAH!

  1. I had to google EMDR….and it all sounds really complicated – but if it works, then go you! So pleased you’ve found something that’s helping!

  2. EMDR sounds like an interesting therapy. I’ll ask for more info on it.

    And by the way, thanks for the comment – if I’m fun to talk to, no one’s more astounded than I. Thanks!

  3. I’m the therapist who left the long comment referred to above, but I wanted to mention again that anyone can use some of the techniques in Dr. Shapiro’s great book “Getting Past Your Past: Take Control of Your Life with Self-Help Techniques from EMDR.” Dr. Shapiro is the founder/creator of EMDR but all the proceeds from the book go to two charities: the EMDR Humanitarian Assistance Program and the EMDR Research Foundation). Anyway, the book is terrific. It’s an easy read, helps you understand what’s “pushing” your feelings and behavior, helps you connect the dots from past experiences to current life. Also teaches readers lots of helpful techniques that can be used immediately and that are also used during EMDR therapy to calm disturbing thoughts and feelings.
