    Feelings About Termination Of Therapy

    Thanks everyone. I appreciate the thoughts more than you know :inlove: Saying goodbye to Ann at our last session wasn't as hard as I thought. The time felt right and it felt more like a celebration of the progress we had made. It was quite a journey we made together! It's been quite a journey...

    Feelings About Termination Of Therapy

    I started this thread last October, almost 6 months ago. Well the time to terminate with my EMDR T has finally really come. We've agreed that next Thursday will be our last session. I am going back to work on April 2nd to a job and position that I am so excited about! My T's office is over an...

    Responses To Your Therapist That You Will Probably Never Say

    HI Barberian, One of my T's actually told me that there would be dry periods and not to expect many, if any, breakthroughs during them. He was right, but when we did have them.....WOW, it was more than worth the work and wait! I know this is a semi-joke thread, but I just had to share!

    Bad Psychologist Report

    ((((Kath)))) I so understand your being upset by the psychologist's report, but I totally agree with what Lizio said. One of my therapist's has told me on several occasions that he doesn't agree with "labels" and that those along with his descriptions are simple so that he can continue seeing...

    The fourteen day challenge

    I LOVE this idea Deb. I'm not on the forum often anymore, but I'm in on this! It will be good to find out how many negative thoughts I am still having. I had read about the rubber band idea sometime back and think it might be a way for me to remember...not so much the snapping of it as kind of a...

    Responses To Your Therapist That You Will Probably Never Say

    I have both a pyschoanalysis T and a trauma T and love both of them. Talk therapy definitely could not fully address the PTSD, no doubt about it, but it is great in combination with the emdr I do with my trauma T. If I could only see one of them though, I would choose my trauma T hands down.

    What Are You Feeling Today? Not Thinking, Rather Feeling! Can You Identify Yours?

    Such a hard place to be I know PH. I'm learning it's not the bad place that we feel it is though. It is where God can begin to show us the dream and purpose HE has for our lives. If you are anything like me, you just want Him to hurry up. I mean "enough already" right? You've told me to seek Him...

    Suppressed Anger

    (((Maddog))) I think that is a perfectly normal reaction to an horrific thing being done to you. I do the same thing. Vacillating back and forth. Seriously, sometimes I don't even believe I was raped when I was seven...then I remember the facts. Most times I feel I'm exaggerating the child...

    Suppressed Anger

    Realizing and acknowledging is a HUGE step in the right direction purple butterfly. You'll get there, just keep at it. He's right Maddog. It's like peeling layers of an onion back. If you are still feeling shame it means that you still feel responsible for what happened. How can you feel...

    Quite drunk....heehee! Our oldest son is over for a couple of days (he likes to do this once a month or so) He always brings his dad specialty micro brews. His dad happened to bring home a bottle of wine from his secret santa from the company Christmas party. It's a local Pinot Noir (happens to...

    PTSD And Pets

    Exactly what I was going to suggest Soul. I find that many people do understand as I hear them telling their children not to approach us as "the dog is working right now". There are also a TON of people that ask questions. I know they have patches that you can sew on that say "Dog working...

    Tlight! Wow....I haven't seen you around in awhile, but then I can't really say I have been looking for anybody of late. Sounds like you have a lovely new horse even if he did spook. Smart to wear a helmet.....I should too, but....ah well, I never claimed to be smart. Both my horses are pretty...

    What Are You Feeling Today? Not Thinking, Rather Feeling! Can You Identify Yours?

    Aww thanks Deb. My heart says yes this is where I need to go so I guess I am going to go for it. Initially I won't earn enough money to meet current expenses, but I am hoping I can move up the pay scale. I really am not sure where this is heading and that is scary! I am usually soooo very...
